Hookerville

So the Husband and I went out this evening for a nice dinner and a movie. We et and then went for a short walk, just to see the sights.

Hookers, hookers everywhere and not a drop to drink.

There were girls leaning on every lamppost, corner, road sign ("NO PARKING") and even the little phallic-symbol marble pavement blocks that make it difficult for cyclists to ride on the pavement. I passed a row of 5 of these, of which 2 had their own female accompaniments. Everywhere I turned, there was boobs, legs, heavy makeup, hooker clothes, long hair and high heels, and not just on the women.

Where were we? Were we in Joo Chiat? Geylang? Desker Road? Changi? ... Pattaya?

No, we were in Orchard Road, on that nice little stretch between Isetan Scotts and Adelphi. Otherwise known as Hookerville. It's really easy to get a hooker there - just pick up a rock (you can call it "The Date Rock" if you like) and toss it in any direction. Chances are extremely favourable that some hooker with a bleeding forehead will return that rock to you, one way or the other, in the next few minutes. I can't say however whether that hooker will be male or female, but well looking at them in the shadows, I would guess that you wouldn't be able to tell either.

I used to say that it was extremely difficult to walk down Geylang Road if you were a woman because people would automatically think you were a hooker. I can now say the same for Orchard Road. Any woman who isn't dressed like she's going to the wet market is an immediate suspect. In fact, any woman in casual clothes and makeup standing by a lamp-post, dustbin, pavement block or just, well, standing could be suspect.

At one point, I was walking past the Thai embassy when some guy bumped into me and copped a feel of what my son refers to as the butty butt. Now, is it just me, OR IS THERE SOMETHING TERRIBLY IRONIC ABOUT GETTING MOLESTED IN A STREET FULL OF HOOKERS. It's like ... going to a buffet and someone runs in and steals a tiny little piece of food. Or something. I'm still processing this.

I guess one thing that really sticks in my mind about the whole Orchard Road experience is what I saw when I wandered into Isetan Scotts. Now this is after passing something like 30 hookers in the street. Then I walk into the cosmetic department at Isetan Scotts, which The Husband sarcastically refers to as "The Mother Ship", and what do I see but 2 transvestite hookers using the makeup samples at MAC to touch up their makeup. Sometimes in a moment of absolute desperation, one might sneak a little bit of lipstick at the makeup counter, but these two were going through the works - foundation, powder, lipstick, blusher, lipliner, eye makeup, mascara and glitter. I glanced around to see how the sales staff were taking this, and was a wee bit horrified to note that it was actually the salesman who was giving them the makeover. I mean, they were sitting in the makeup chair and everything, and getting their faces professionally done by one of the sales staff. When MAC used RuPaul as the Face of MAC, it must have really reached their target audience, huh. I tried checking out the cosmetics myself (oh the luxury of not doing this while carrying a 3-year old) but at one point I looked at the lipsticks, all shiny and gleaming, a thought flashed through my mind, and then. I. just. walked. away.

Oh RuPaul. If you only knew what you started. You were an inspiration for GenX transvestite hookers. Now you are a continuing inspiration for GenY transvestite hookers. Long live RuPaul!

And the big question I have is, "what was that flashing thought?"

I think HairyDonut left it out for a good reason but if you need further clues. Here is the train of thought:

1 . the hookers use the sample lipsticks,

2. but where have their lips been???

that nice little stretch between Isetan Scotts and Adelphi.

One of the buildings along that stretch is lovingly dubbed as "Four floors of whores" by the... ahem! Foreign Talents.

Never understood the johns prowling there. It's the sex trade equivalent of "Anything" and "Whatever."

Some time back, a female wrote in to The Shitty Times "Forum" with a complaint: she walked past this building of ill-repute and was spanked on the butty butt by a male. Outraged, she complained to the building's security guard (who witnessed the incident), but the latter laughed in her face.

Singapore should legalize pepper spray and mace for private citizens.

I hope you meant Delphi Orchard and not Adelphi (Coleman Street) as you wrote in your post. Has the stretch extended to City Hall? I've not been to Orchard Road at night for a while now.

Et tu, Smoote? Ate.

It used to be that I could not take the underpass from whatever that hotel is on the corner to the Isetan Scotts without getting propositioned twice, at the minimum. Mind you, if I am not the target demographic, who is?

& Where are you, indeed! Between Scotts and the Adelphi? The Adelphi, in North Bridge Rd, near Funan? You mean The Delphi. My God, how long you live/shop here?

I think XiaXue had a post about being butty-butted in Orchard Rd by a feeelthy person of South Asian extraction, you might wanna get hubby to look it up, he's a fan, right?

Or maybe it's pronounced 'et' but spelled 'eat'. I've forgeatten. Is there a teacher in the house?
