When I visited The Pavillion
a few days back, saw this exhibition of Barbie Dolls
. This beautiful little dolls with body shape adored by women the world over stand elegantly in glass cases parading costumes of most box office movies.
I am not a fan of Barbie Dolls but of real dolls, Ooopss…did I say real dolls? Well, as a man of course our attraction is towards women, am I right? If I am attracted to guys too, then there is something not right in my sexual desire and preference. Enough of that. Until I saw an article on Life & Times insert of New Straits Times published on Monday, November 23 2009, did I came to know why the Barbie Dolls were exhibited at The Pavillion. She’s 50. Hmmm….is Babie that old? I don’t see her age is 50. Looking at the picture on the left I think you will agree that she doesn’t look 50, right? She was born, err….I mean created in 1959 by Ruth handler, the co-founder of Mattel toys, based on a German fashion model Bild Lilli. If you are a fan of Barbie read more at New Straits Times
