To boot or not to boot

I recently got an invitation to co-exhibit with Yusof Gajah Lingard Literary Agency (who also represents me in licencing my artworks) in October 2013 at Frankfurt, so I jumped at the chance and took up a booth! I know its crazy; it’s like an ant trying to march alongside with elephants; but this is a way to licence my artworks. I know the chances of getting deal/s might not be on my side but at least I can promote my work internationally. I am going by the name of this blog:!

Anyway, work aside.  Am hoping to steal some times to visit places that I missed visiting last year, i.e. Goethe House, museums along River Main as well as another half part of Palmengarten. And yes, the zoo!

I took a note last year that I have to get a pair of boot if I go again. This is because I cannot stand the weather. Typical kampung woman like me cannot stand 20°C (high) to 10° (low) last year and my foot and ankle got numb from walking in the weather. I actually went looking for boots recently but could not find anything suitable for me as I have very wide feet. I cannot wear hard pointy sturdy original leather shoes or boots as it kills me and I can only wear those from soft materials like above picture. And guess what? I found the type that I want at Zalora Malaysia! I never thought that they have it until I went surfing the website. Look at these very comfortable boots from Celcius at Zalora Malaysia:


Nice, right? All are made from faux leather except for the light brown which is made from PU leather. Faux leather is a fabric that looks like leather, but is actually made out of other materials. It’s commonly used to make a wide range of products, including garments and shoes while PU leather is made by coating a fabric like cotton or polyester with a flexible polymer and then treating it to look more like animal hide. PU is breathable and I most likely to choose the light brown but I guess faux leather is good too.

So which one of these boots do you think is the best? I don’t know which color to choose.  I like black but the brown one seems nice also. How about the pretty pink one? You know I don’t really go for pink but that pink is quite nice and not too striking.
