When Kelly was old enough to talk, she told me that the color she hates the most is black, because black is so like dark and scary. And then, she went on to say she hates pink too. Now, that's my girl. We both hates pink. But her schoolbag, water bottle, pencil case and other things she loves are all in pink. It's like we've got no choice but to like pink if you know, you happen to like those fairytale characters and most of them comes in pink. Sha Lynn definitely gonna get colorful things from me. No pink. Say no to pink! Purple still acceptable. Hah. Actually some shades of pink is nice. Sometimes, my braces are in pink. Like lips kind-of-pinkish-red.
During my era in primary schools, we go around with a nice diary, asked all our friends to write down their 'biodata'. Should have kept those diaries of biodatas till today la. Memories like that is precious. Anyways, one of that MUST question is "What is your favorite color?'. I remember mine was blue and then it changed to green when I enter Form 1. And it stayed green till today.
Colors definitely affect my decisions making in certain things. Like when I'm looking for a shampoo brand to try it out, anything pink will automatically be out of my list, or at least the last in the list when I have no choice at all. Or like certain shops that I will never walked in by myself because it's all pink, like that shop next to Kim Gary in Gurney last time. Now, it's dessert place d. Or like, I will never buy a pink dress/top/skirt. Even when my sister gave me a pink bottle that keeps a foldable umbrella, I kept it in Koay's car (actually because his car usually doesn't have umbrella also la). At first he thought it was a bottle and he refused to use it because it was pink. His reaction was huge! I even told him that I got it especially for him and make him feel guilty. So funny to see the way he reacted. Then, later only found out that it was actually an umbrella. Immediate relief shown from his face man. Anyways, it is proven that a pink hater I am. Not that extreme though. Like some of the facial masks I use are wrapped in pink glossy plastic.
But the, as years passed, I realized my 'hate' towards this color is dying. Like really quickly. I find myself becoming 'okay' with this, which is not me at all.
Anything green (right shades of green that is) gets my attention immediately. Once, i bought a plain notebook that costs me RM30 plus, just because it looked so nice in that right shades of green. Went home and regretted. Probably got nagged by Koay for few days in a row (can't really remember how many days).
But now, I like anything that is colorful. More than one color. I like it even better if it has that unique look to it. Like it's so unusual kind. I will spend money to get it even if I have no idea what its functions are or even if I don't need it at all. Argh, this habit/obsession needs to end. But yeah, colors make me happy. I think color makes most people happy. It it doesn't, then it should. It cheers up the mood, for sure :)
