Being a tall girl in Singapore...

Friday, March 13, 2015
... You're at the back row of every year's class photo.

... People think you should be good at netball/basketball/sports in general, but erm. You're not.

... You're almost always the one on the chair in Captain's Ball.

... Dresses, and especially rompers, sold by blogshops are too short for you.

... You're considered "big" if you're not a UK6.

... You're the same height as, or taller than the average Singaporean guy.

... In heels you might as well be Hagrid.

... You hunch like Gollum in group photos with other girls.

... Major awkwardness is wearing 4-inch heels and having to bend down to hug someone.


... You will probably have to get married wearing flats.

... I wear heels about 5 times a year.

    The woes are real. Blogshops n sometimes even normal shopping can be really unsuitable :((

    But its really a blessing at the end of the day, to hv a gd height where clothes can hang nicely of your frame :) Plus u look great wif heel !

    190cm here :)
    Trying not to hit my head on the grab handles in the mrt >.<

    1. Are u a girl? 190cm could mean that u might be the tallest girl in Singapore 😱
