I sorta forgot the feeling of getting a sunburn...
It must have ages since i last set foot on a beach and am i glad i did yesterday...although i had to pay for it with my skin. Yours truly is now burnt-red on face, forearms and calves...a direct result of being a smart aleck to wear a tee instead of a singlet. In spite of what you must be thinking rite now:"why doesn't that idiot go bare-bodied then?"...the answer is "NO", i would scare too many people away, and spoil their fine day to sun and be merry. Back to the main point, I really love the sun and smell of the sea, and the occasional bared bum/boob or two (if u knew me, u knew that was coming).
Anyway, gotta thank the 2 ladies sun-tanning in their string bikinis and being oblivious to what was happening around them(there was a full triathlon event going on rite where they were)..at least they provided visual entertainment. Also spotted a tom cruise lookalike from the nike team (sorry gals, no pic, but i'll try to see if there are any of him from the press photogs).
No pics of myself in my tanned glory today, i'd probably scare u away, or make u fall hopelessly in love with my looks (somehow i don't see it happening).
On to the day's links then:
Dude has brilliant idea, invents industry for "pre-need" furniture. Seriously, i can see how this might truly work: buy a full-length teak cupboard, store your wine, books and stereo, then use it as a coffin when u croak!
brilliant i tell u!
Woman shocked to find out she was killed in Iraq from web news
don't believe everything u read...unless i tell u so
In similar news, always double-confirm when u sign on your marriage certificate, or else u might get the wrong twin
unless the other one is hotter
Which brings me to todays related story bonanza
Don't u love Japanese inventions? and manga, anime, high tech gadgets, kawaii chicks, cool clothing, cute chicks (did i mention that already?)...well, i do, for all of them! So i'm wondering who the heck went to inform Vodafone about their voyeur phones!?!
getting more than u bargained for
I mean, phones are such useful devices these days, u have phonebook, organizer, email software, camera, fax s/w, period calendars, horoscope and even mood predictors. So whats the problem with a few "glitches" like free porn?
yet another guy who complains too much
Some people should just ease up and stop being so uptight, calling in the police at every opportunity. Cops have better things to do than ask your horny exhibitionists to stop their public coitus
and i mean it when i say cops don't want them to "stop"...LOL
Ok, thats all for the weekend... have a nice one before monday comes round again.

seriously, i don't blame the interviewers and the powers-that-be who feel they shouldn't be taking a chance on someone who may not have the working experience but in fact posesses more product knowledge or insight... i blame the guys who manage to fool them into thinking so.
ok, rant over... whatever, i'll be ready the next time(you'll be sure of that)

Things you shouldn't buy used
First things come to mind: underwear/lingerie....but i ain't that shallow... lol
Laptops: you are taking a chance when you buy any used computers, but the risks are much higher when you purchase something as prone to abuse and hardware problems as a laptop.
Exception: You are buying a refurbished unit with warranty.
Plasma TVs : This is something you'll definitely want a warranty and an extended warranty at that. Its gonna be a bitch (physically and on your wallet)to repair when the tv breaks down.
Exception: Its a super-duper great deal and you don't mind if it breaks down just when you bring it home
DVD players: You can used DVD's, but not the players. The laser is too fragile and integral part of the set(no laser = no fun) to take a chance on.
Excpetion: Its your buddy's and you've been using it all along...
 Helmets: They are meant to protect your head, DON'T compromise!
No Exceptions here...cost of injury or death is much higher (touch wood)
 Mattresses: Think of all the stuff you do on your own mattress.... now think of sleeping in your birthday suit on someone else's bed... EEWWWW...Buy NEW, after all, like the tv ads say, you can even get a free mobile phone for every purchase(!)
Exception: You like sleeping in somebody else's germs, bacteria and bodily fluids... urgh, i don't wanna think about it.... NEXT!
)Shoes: Poor fitting shoes can give you the whole array of problems: heel, shin, toe, knee and back pains. Don't buy shoes which have already been molded to someone else's feet. Go for shop and warehouse sales or factory outlets for shoes at lower prices, but brand new.
Exception: You are like me, a sneaker collector, that desperately needs a particular model/brand of shoe and can't wait to throw a fortune on a worn pair. :P

Yes, the Hello Kitty (or Haro Kit-tee in Jap-english) craze is back in MacDonald's, this time with a "jewel" (!)... if anyone out there has seen the light pink ones aka "rose quartz", pls help me purchase it and get back to me (no ransom notes please, thank you), u know how to find me (email is on the sidebar)
*jingle: thats my mac donald's...
ps: *whispers* if any snooping McD's employees/staff is reading this, feel free to send me a complimentary kitty (in above-said color), i'll be waiting by my mailbox ;)

as adapted from MSN Money article
BOOKS- Why bother buying them new when books don't often get read more than once (admit it, u have lots of unread books lying around too)... so the next time u want a paperback for the long trips or rides, get it from the library sale
Exception: Reference books, they definitely have resale value, why do u think so many people have unpaid library fines then?
DVD VCD Video - "Troy" was just released a couple of weeks ago...odds are they will be $29.90 at your neighborhood friendly stores in no time. heck, u can get it for far cheaper on auction sites or amazon.com...even for XXX...(no not Vin Diesel, boys n girls ;)
Exception: When u simply have to be the first in your block to blast the movie out loud, or u really need to get that special-edition-karaoke-concert-dvd-with-uncut-behind-the-scenes-footage edition signed by the visiting idol...
CARS- need i say more? one of the most over-valued piece of property in this country, they drop in value as soon as its legally yours....best to get a 2nd hand model, let someone else feel the heartache of losing value.
Exception: u really want that "new car" smell
Sports Equipment- look at the dumb-bells in the corner... u know, beside that "tummy trimmer", yoga mat, "power rider", yonex carbonex 8...need i say more?
Exception: training shoes, soccer balls that may mould to humidity
PCs, software and console games - seriously, u still BUY them off game stores these days? mwahahahhaa.... oh, u do?... hmm....=/
NO Exception here... pls, do everyone a favor, go download them, we always welcome another seed on BT.
yet another public service announcement, brought to by the conscience of xymon ... see u at the next yard sale, internet auction, or ca$h converters...

There must be something said or written about the thereuputic effects of cutting one's hair. Something about the hair being the extension of stress and tension and cutting it off brings along a removal of the proverbial "weight off your shoulders"....
either that, or its just me and my big head of hair.... big head = big hair ... lol
Which brings me to the weather (why then did u think i cut my hair?)... its blazing hot these days, can't i even enjoy my siesta in peace without blasting my little fan... and even then, all the while blowing hot air at my face? :P
couple of nice sites you might like to visit:
grafitti appreciation at its best...
and how to reclaim back public property
public ad campaign
something about grafitti and the guerilla practices of these guys attracts me... i just might try them out one of these days (oops, did i think that out loud?)

Dang, looks like i gotta clean my mirrors eh? But what do i care? i got my fave tee on, my brand new butter-soft leather sneakers on...ain't nuthin' gonna hold me down... (sorry 'bout the slang and stuff, couldn't help it y'know... LOL)
Had an awesome lunch today (sorry no pics...some restaurant rule or something.... yeah rite! hahaha)...there was the dim sum entre, and something like 6 main course dishes but that was before... get this... a generous helping of ice cold yam flavored ice cream gorgeously marooned in the middle of a steaming hot bowl of red-bean soup! simply heaven! no kiddin', go try it sometime!
Its suppose to be exam time in schools ain't it? Somehow, i seem to see more kids in town more than anything.... must be out "studyin'... (heh heh)...not that its a bad thing... (even more heh heh)... :P
Anyways, as u may have noticed so far, i'm a sneaker-freak by nature... and you're gonna see more shoes in future (like it or not... hopefully likin' it..)... i'll prolly be previewing some '05 sneakers that are gonna be launched...
Oh yeah, and more talking in parenthesis (i dunno, i just like it... so sue me :P)
Its finally the weekend yar? Hmm... not that theres much to do anyways
Guerillas in the midst....
Sometimes u just wish the worst for someone else... yeah, the worst...
Why is it that the train keeps breaking down these days? Is the technology that back-dated? Are the maintenance personnel that un-skilled? Or did someone jump onto the tracks again?... seriously, i do hope it was someone who jumped onto the tracks this morning, and i was half hoping it was one of the idiots running the train system...the other half was hoping he didn't make it out alive
I see no point in announcing that there is a "track fault" and apologising for the minor problem when everyone and anyone inside the train can plainly see its a major problem: taking 40minutes for less than 2 stations is ridiculous! not to mention stopping 10times to travel a total of 100 cm! I wasn't that worried about being late for work, more so for the very-pregnant lady sitting on the chair in front of me and anxiously looking out the train window for any signs of movement. (interestingly, thats all anyone does whenever the train breaks down, as if the answer is out there on the opposite tracks). Worst still, the staff still allow more passengers to enter the stations w/o informing them of the impending "track fault" and delays... what do they hope to achieve? earning the extra 80cents so that we can take to the next station, just to alight in utter frustration?...bleah....
*end rant.... sighs... rant over(but believe me, my anger runs deep... lol)
heres a custom i did last week...

Took a long time coming, but yes, my blog is "current" once again (or at least i aim to keep it current).
In the typical foot-in-mouth style of Austin Powers "Let myself,introduce...myself.."
This is moi...
..in need of a bigger mirror... LOL
Sorry if the pic scared ya, just couldn't be bothered to turn the flash on the bugger, hahaha....Anyways, i'll just be posting up random pics of myself or whatever i see in my daily... hope anyone that reads this s#%t will enjoy that :)
Y'know its true when your mom always nags at you and says "sometimes it helps to open your eyes when u walk".... Had to run an errand this morning at the post office, took the never-ending "short" feeder bus ride and what do i get when i alight and walk towards where the post office WAS supposed to be??? It was relocated as it was under renovation! darn.... so i dutifully followed the instructions to its temporary location... and where do u think it is? just right next to the frickin' path which i took towards the old one! (am i making sense here?)
Anywho, arrived late at work, thankfully didn't miss anything important.... took a couple of pics of my customs as well, let u guys have a sample
A re-worked New Balance BB700 white/red, done in Atlanta colours....
Will post more pics and stuff later on, pretty tired (and lazy...haha)....
