shopping for comfort  
comfort for the soul, comfort for the body. :)

i'm very much a PJ girl. when i lived in australia, i was always in my PJ's at home. i had seven sets of PJ's, from peter alexander's to paul frank's. since returning to singapore, my PJ's have been stashed away because the climate is just wrong for them. i have not bought any PJ's for more than 3 years, since leaving australia.

last month, i had a timeout period of a few weeks from a relationship before finally deciding to call it quits. one evening, during this timeout, i was on my way home when i passed la senza and wandered in to waste some time. i found myself picking out set after set of PJ's, when in the past, i'd be looking at the raciest lace bras and the sexiest strapless numbers.

perhaps i was making up for lost time. after all, i've not done any PJ-shopping for 3 years.

or perhaps i was seeking physical comfort, to make up for comfort on a deeper level.

then again, maybe i just want to go back home to melbourne.

I'm so behind on posts here... computer issues lately. been out for fixing and going back out monday.

sure feel cut off without my laptop - anyway...

its hard to know what grabbed at you about the pj's... you could be right about it being a comfort thing. kind of like why i want mashed potatos or some other comfort food that warms me from the inside out when everything seems to be bad or cold or strange...or something....

maybe the pj's do the same thing?

definitely. sometimes when i'm not happy in singapore for whatever reasons, i'd have an urge to fly back to melbourne on the next flight. since i'm not rash enough to do that, i'd do the next best thing - surround/wrap myself with comfort that reminds me of being back there. :)

They are a comfort thing. Pyjamas will get you through crises that nothing else can.

Also, it's really cold here too, so you have this dual role in effect.

I'm wearing the 'meth puppy' pyjamas from the Sunny pyjama party as we speak. I don't want to go to work :(

At some point you're gonna have to get on that plane and come visit us. LJ is good, but is sadly no replacement for some paw-waving at close range.

You can bake with Sarah Fish and me too! Yay!
