Mucho Macho

July 29, 2009

Mucho MachoThe male counterparts of the office were rather unhappy after my previous post (not that I think they read this blog, but assuming they did) that the women folk got a mention but the hard working males were forgotten.

So the other day, yours truly had to drop in to the Temple with mummy dearest before work, and on such occasions I choose to wear my shirt out and batas (not to office but to the temple). The big Cinderella operation (not to be confused with Cindy) thereafter is to change the batas into shoes, shirt to get tucked in and magically a tie to appear from somewhere.

Already a bit late, and hurrying into the gents loo in the morning, considering which mini operation to pursue first, I’m shocked to see about 10 guys hogging the mirrors coolly gelling their hair, knotting their ties etc.

Me thinks these are the macho biker dudes who can’t afford to gel their hair (a practice I never understood, gelling hair not the biking part of it) due to the helmets. These were men in all shapes and sizes bonding over a gel bottle. Ok maybe more than one, coz another guy walks in with another gel and asks the guys to try this. This gel variety appears to be the squirtable bottle type as opposed to the normal dig your fingers in, and get them all dirty variety.

With my Cinderella operation complete without a fairy god mother to go whish wash kazaam with her wand, I leave the loo looking quite decent If I say so myself and the macho metro-sexual men to compare gel varieties. 🙂

    Gel in hair is a turn off, I think. It looks slimy and disgusting 😕
    And when guys are a bit too liberal with the gel (which is more often the case) they look sleazy…

    Besides, nothing beats running your fingers through the soft un-gelled hair 😛

    @chavie : not da total buff, the title was inspired off a T-shirt.

    @pupeteer : i soo agree with you on that one. tot for the scruffy messy hair look. but apparently it makes me look old.. hence the mmuch shorter version. 🙂
