Miss Glitzy has a confession to make.

Guess what?

She hates shoe shopping!!!

Her size 41 feet has been ostracised in Singapore. No one loves size 41 feet. Pretty shoes come in the largest size of size 9 or 39/40. Or if they are available in size 41, they are usually (in fact, 99% of the time) out of stock.

You can’t believe how many times Miss Glitzy had stepped into a shoe shop, fell in love with a decent pair of shoes, approached the service staff only to hear that earth-shattering news that the shoes aren’t available. Sometimes, some persistent staff would bring out smaller sizes for Miss Glitzy to try (her luck). And that only made things even more heart wrenching!

Interestingly, none of the shoe shop that stocks size 41 has ever offered to check with other branches on availability if the shoes are out of stock. It baffles Miss Glitzy why the service staff refuse to go the extra mile just to help a really love(shoe)lorn customer.

She is determined and resolute to finally get a pair of highly popular to-die-for size 41 ladies’ footwear and the patience of the service staff shall be tested in the process.

Meanwhile, do drop by the site to read some of the missions that the service squad has accomplished!
