i LOVE to color co-ordinate.
i'm really OCD when it comes to colors. obsessive-compulsive. i color co-ordinate my wardrobe. i color co-ordinate mr. khairul's shirts and t's when i hang them in his wardrobe. on the book case, i arrange my books according to colors - well, according to authors first, but color is definitely next. creams, blacks, blues, and greens - it soothes the eye!
heck, i even color co-ordinate when i hang the laundry to dry.
i mean, you're doing a reasonably boring perfunctory task anywayyyy - amik dari bakul, libas-libas, sidai. amik dari bakul, libas-libas, sidai. so might as well make it more interesting by making sure the reds are with the reds and pinks and oranges, while the blacks and blues go together.
it's NOT weird when you think about it - you're still getting the damp clothes hang, right? what's wrong with putting a little 'fun' to it? make it a little game you're playing while you're hanging up clothes - making sure everyone is in their right color group!
ok, why are you looking at me all funny?
azi pointed out to me the level of quirkiness one day - we're all ready to go out, and khaleef was already in his socks and shoes and out waiting at the elevator.
i then discovered something, and strongly insisted that khaleef comes back in, takes his shoes off, changes his socks - just because he was wearing a pair of green socks with red top, when he's supposed to wear the red socks with red top.
i just want things nicely matched, thanks very much!
and some people might like this, some may give lawak bodo basi like 'eii boria' - but i LOVE color co-ordinating my family's attire when we go out. i mean, gi kenduri or hari raya tu biase la. but even to the hypermart, the mall or just a weekend lunch at al-tawasol for our fav mandi rice, i'll definitely make sure everyone is wearing pretty much the same shade.
bukan baju sebijik-bijik serupa - but colors of the same shade, or near each other in the color spectrum. yellow-orange-brown. or blue-purple-black. or black and white. or green-yellow-cream.
i even prefer the colors not to be too similar, and the clothes too - a variety of plaids, stripes or corak-corak - but still falls under the same color shade!
what can i say - i'm crazy about colors!
