Footwear Depicts Instant Noodles

The fashion world is known for constantly reinventing itself and for pushing boundaries – but sometimes, it may just venture too far to the point of becoming fatuous. 

Bottega Veneta had debuted their 2020 pre-fall collection and some of the shoes had caught the attention of eagle-eyed shoppers  and one particular design was singled out and derided.

This one possessed an intricate pattern that looked suspiciously similar to instant noodles.

It came in a light tan and pale yellow, looking exactly like the squarish brick of noodles students ravenously gulp down during college days. And more often than not, crack an egg on them for a gourmet touch. 

In fact, Instagram account DietPrada posted side-by-side comparisons of the £800 shoes along a packet of noodles which, naturally, sent social media into a frenzy. The post racked up more than 89,000 likes, with many people quick to mock the food-themed footwear.

One person commented: “Seasoning packet included or nah?” 

Another joked: “Guess she’ll be ready in 3-4 mins?” 

“Edible sandals, eh”, added someone else. 

And there are some individuals who said they couldn’t get enough of the unique shoe. “Makes me want them even more honestly”, said one fashion lover.

This makes me think I would dearly love to see a pic of the shoe in a bowl! 

BTW, the shoe also resembled Justin Timberlake’s NSYNC hair (left). 

But I don’t think the Italian fashion brand’s creative director Daniel Lee will take too kindly to this comparison! 

This evening, I delivered my CC#10 speech titled Just Breathe, Just Breathe  and this means, I am done with my Competent Communication manual, #65. Truly, an outstanding achievement, if I may say so myself.

I mean, how many Toastmasters do you know who have completed the said manual 65 times and still counting? 

The total tally of my Communication and Leadership awards from Toastmasters International todate now stands at 124: 

Anyway, I was at the UNIPAC Toastmasters meeting at the HICOM-Glenmarie Industrial Park in Shah Alam, Selangor – and besides being a speaker, I was also the General Evaluator.

I must say it was an excellent meeting. The room layout, the food (I can't forget the coffee), the ambiance, the attendance, the Table Topics, the speeches and the evaluations – every aspect of the meeting went exceedingly well. Yes, I enjoyed it tremendously. 

Thumbs up to UNIPAC Toastmasters!
