whispersClosed-door party is on friday 28th...heard Lavelle, F2k and Edison will be dropping by.
New Royalefam baseball tee dropping on opening day:

Well, limited or not... i don't really think its as hot as some have perceived it. I just wished the references weren't that obvious:
first the "abe lincoln" head done ala ape head, although its upside down, then the crossbones and "3 stripes" which look vaguely familiar on the bape and wtaps tees...

Sitting at my pc... just thought i'll post up a couple more stuff to make up for the missing logs the past week. Had a pretty relaxing weekend, finally am able to lose any work-related stress (till Monday, that is)...well, at least its gonna be pay-day this week =)

Some interesting stuff:

Custom printed M&M's This is soo-soo awesome! perfect for V-day! perfect for B-day!...until i saw the shipping info that they "do not currently ship custom printed M&M'S® Milk Chocolate Candies internationally" Sob sob

Nicole Locher is a Parisian chick, does graphic designs, and i'll bet she's got kick ass attitude...i love her grrl-power and fem-dom tees(some R-A pics involved):

2headeddog
Some viral marketing alert...this has got to be something big coming up, no one spends that much effort on animation/email/hipness for nothing. Check out the videos about the above-said dog and the games(addictive). Pretty nifty stuff i might.. But what does the 2 headed dog mean? well, rumors abound about the relaunch of MTV2...likely

i-mockery is a cool site... its also home of the domo-kun game...now u get to win it!

Caught "shall we dance" over the weekend...not a bad movie...guess it was delayed for so long(it was released in oct 2004 in US)to avoid the bad press from J-Lo's breakup with Affleck and subsequent hookup with Marc...anywho, she looks great in this movie...not saying she acts great, but looks great..hehe
heres some great movie stills

Besides eye-candy...theres also this lovely song by Peter Gabriel "The Book of Love"
anyone with the mp3, pls send to me!
The book of love is long and boring
No one can lift the damn thing
It's full of charts and facts and figures and instructions for dancing
But I
I love it when you read to me
And you
You can read me anything
The book of love has music in it
In fact that's where music comes from
Some of it is just transcendental
Some of it is just really dumb
But I
I love it when you sing to me
And you
You can sing me anything
The book of love is long and boring
And written very long ago
It's full of flowers and heart-shaped boxes
And things we're all too young to know
But I
I love it when you give me things
And you
You ought to give me wedding rings
And I
I love it when you give me things
And you
You ought to give me wedding rings
And I
I love it when you give me things
And you
You ought to give me wedding rings
You ought to give me wedding rings


Any girl will love the lyrics! ;)

I finally believe...God is a Mac designer. How else can one explain the stuff that Steve Jobs (he's actually Santa) keep churning out? How else can one explain the claims of "ohmygod ohmygod!" when they see an Apple product?. Earlier today, these babies were announced to the world at the CES:

iPod Shuffle: Official soundtrack to the random revolution


"iPod shuffle rejects routine by serving up your favorite songs in a different order every time. Just plug iPod shuffle into your computer’s USB port, let iTunes Autofill it with up to 240 songs(1) and get a new experience with every connection...Daily gridlock feels less mundane when you don’t know what song will play next. iPod shuffle adds musical spontaneity to your life. Lose control. Love it."

Enough said, its BEYOND COOL

Mini-Mac: 6.5 inches wide and 2 inches tall

This baby packs a 1.25GHz G4 processor and 40GB hard drive...for usd$499...
Is this the answer to the search for my first Mac???

In other related news, 8 year-old finally proves that i'm as dumb as a bell
I swear, he's a wizard
simonsays: At age 8, i was still trying to know the name of the cute girl sitting beside me...sheesh!

"Hurray" story of the day:
Female lawyers in Cyprus finally won the right to wear trousers in court...
simonsays:maybe peeing while standing up will be next...

the fairy tale ends

Finally got to have a walk in town yesterday...i really do miss the idyllic walks, the carefree strolls and coffee breaks at the sidewalk cafes. Plus, school days have finally started, the streets are pretty clear of pesky teens(yay)...until noon, that is. Thats when every, and i mean every teen from every single school came out in full force selling flags for the Red Cross and various associations for the Tsunami fund. Heys, i can't complain, they were doing it for a good cause. But the least i would have expected was for them to be better behaved when outside of their school compounds. I do understand that kids being kids will always misbehave, and adults being adults will always view them with a sceptic and disapproving eye, every single action they do is prone to adults' derision. But then again, kids should at least be given a talking to on how to project themselves in public...sighs...
sorry if it sounds "holier tha thou", guess its the "i'm right, you're wrong" mentality in me coming out... i should just relax and let it be. After all, i am after all a "neighborhood" kid myself when growing up as well, and saying all that can be seen as a hypocritical move...all i hope for is that they do not become stigmatised by the public perception, that they may realise that they too are as good as those kids from "posh" or more reknowned instituitions.

Go support "Project Tsunami" by Royalefam and Ambush, they have launched a tee, where all profits from the sale of the tee will be donated to the International Red Cross. Last i heard, a kind soul bought 100 tees at one go...(cheers to Earn, Mark et al)

I'm always impressed by the Japs...after reading this article, i'm a firm believer.
Jap scientists perfect the Ramen
in other news, hordes of fresh grads rush to be scientific researchers in new field of Science called Ramen-tology....

Yet another example of tax dollars going to waste... babies cause stress... DUH, what next? "scientists suspect water might be wet and fire is hot?"

After the tragedy of the Indian Ocean Tsunami...North Am residents are next on mother Nature's list...Those in the Central region braces themselves for a 123 punch by the N, W and S storms. "A two-or-three-times a century type of thing"
