Where Is My Smitten???

April 21, 2009 at 09:44 4 comments

About a year ago, my sister-in-law introduced this magazine, named Project Smitten, to me. I took a look and was, well, pretty much smitten. There were no inane articles about anyone’s best friend stealing their boyfriend, or their husband being gay, or how to have sex upside-down. Just about the whole magazine was devoted to clothes, shoes and bags  – what was in style, how to wear them, and where to get them.

I like. Thereafter, I was a faithful buyer. I discovered Haji Lane because of this magazine. I was particularly chuffed to discover that the editor was an old classmate from long ago.

Then the magazine disappeared. Vanished. The last issue I found was labelled Jan/Feb 2009, an ominous sign because it is supposed to be a monthly publication. I have not been able to find it anywhere since.

There is a beautifully-decorated website, but it gives absolutely zero information. 

I can only conclude that the magazine, as I know it, has met its demise. Evidently, these things need inane articles to stay alive.

      Agreed! I’m much happier with this platform. Took some time to figure out but the layout is more sensible and pleasing to the eye. And WordPress bloggers seem to write much better than Spaces bloggers, though I really dunno why. Only thing is that WP doesn’t seem to have a photo album function.

      I miss Smitten! Even your kor seems to quite like it (heh, who would’ve thought?). But he’s always said that it would die if it didn’t conform to what other mags did. Looks like he was right.

      Get a WP blog too lah… join me join me. :)

Don’t say I didn’t say this…

Disclaimers: 1) I cannot help but bitch about work sometimes, but everything here comes under the realm of personal remarks, and nothing here is said in my professional capacity. Nor does anything here reflect the opinion of the institutions that employ me. This is just me shooting off. 2) Most identities have been anonymized, particularly those of folks I know on a personal basis. Same goes for my workplaces. However, commercial and public places and figures remain named. Otherwise some things just wouldn't make sense. 3) Links and sources have been provided where appropriate and possible. They are not meant to challenge anyone's ownership. If this causes any discomfort or offence, please let me know.
