Cinderella on the Nathan Road

Compared to Asian Ladies my shoe size is pretty huge (European size: 41), so that’s why it is not easy to find suitable elegant shoes for me in Hong Kong.

Whenever I go to the shoe shop in Hong Kong, pick up some high heels and ask the stuff “Excuse me, do you have this shoe in size 41?” I always get back the reply “For you?! L(・o・)」 オーマイガ”  

If I ask for sneakers in this size, the staff will believe that I am buying some shoes for my boyfriend! Fitting the shoe, the staff will definitely say “Miss, this is for man.” I often answer “It does not matter; my boyfriend has the same shoe size than me.” “Oh, that’s very convenient.” Before I used to answer “Thanks for info, I know. This is for me!”, then I got the reply “Oh, you have such big feet, sorry!” Are they really feeling sorry?!

Well, this is nothing new. It always happens to me. (×_×;) シユン

Because of the summer sales I am recently looking for some high heels. Looking at the windows and displays, I have remembered my experience of last year:

After work, I have decided to go to the Nathan Road to buy some shoes. I fell in love immediately in a blue navy shoes and I imagined I am running at the beach during sun set.  “Excuse me, do you have this shoe in size 41?” “ For you?!” I nod. “Oh, you have such big feet! … Wait I will check.” After a while the young man came back “We only have 39.” I was disappointed “Ok, thanks for checking.” Then he says “You may try! It will fit to you!” No, definitely not, it is too small! No time to think for long time. The young man pushed me down to the chair, kneed in front me, unwrapped the shoe, took my foott and helped me to wear the shoe. “Oh, your feet do not fit. Your feet are too big.” I suddenly felt like Cinderella!
I felt a little bit upset. The shop manager came and apologized for his staff’s attitude, and promise to help me. After a very short while he (looked like Grand Duke) came back with another pair of shoes (different colour, same design), kneed in front me, unwrapped the shoe, took my foott and helped me to wear the shoe.  “It really does not fit.” What happened? I checked the shoe. It is the same size as before! (’へ’)ムー
Sorry, guys, I am not your princess… or better to say you are not my prince. And by the way, I think the shoe is too small. Or should I cut my feet in order to fit like the step-sisters of Cinderella, in order to fit into the shoe to be THE princess?!

Two days ago I fit some high heels. The staff kneed in front me, un-wrapped the shoe, took my foot and helped me to wear the shoe. I felt like Cinderella again. Amazingly I fitted into the high heels and I whispered to myself happily “I found my prince(=shoes)!” \(@^o^)/ <キャッホー!!

And they lived happily ever after ….

    Howdy! Quick question that’s completely off
    topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly?
    My website looks weird when viewing from my iphone4.
    I’m trying to find a theme or plugin that might be able to resolve
    this issue. If you have any suggestions, please share. Cheers!
