Ok, we confess - we'd started this blog before getting permission from the editor. We experimented a little before throwing the idea at her ("Surprise! Happy new year! More trouble from your writers!"). We hadn't told anyone else about it though - thought we should get the go ahead from her first before we went full steam and started um... insulting the whole country.
Before we do start spewing rubbish at our dear readers and inciting great unrest and the like, Trisha and I would like to make it clear that although this blog is inspired by and an off-shoot of our column in StarWeekend, it is not directly related to, nor to be considered an initiative of The Star or any of its publications. As such any opinions, views or attitudes expressed here are entirely our own and do not reflect or uphold those of The Star. So please don't ring up those poor people at the papers and harrass them over something you've read here... Because in all probability, they'll have no idea what you're talking about, or they'll tell you to get lost.
Anyway, a big thanks to our ed Sharifah for giving us the column and then okaying the blog (as if we weren't demanding enough as writers). She's fantastic and lovely in every way, has rather the most desirable collection of shoes, and we both want to be just like her when we grow up. Lots of love and onward ho with All a girl wants!
