I like to move it move it, you like to, Move It!

Been a tough week, still having the remnants of last Monday's flu (i still sound like a bad Donald Duck impression)...furthermore, PC died on me midweek...i mean, i know Pc's are getting faster and smarter, but how the hell did my PC know the IT fair is on this week?! But oh well, my buddies will know that i'm prolly the last person they know that is still using a Windows 98 platform (guys, thank u for not forsaking me, haha). What can i say, i'm just too lazy to load in the XP OS...that, and the fact that i'm too stingy to upgrade my RAM. Ugh, the chore of it all...
Went to catch Madagascar yesterday...pretty rollicking movie i feel. Its one of those new-age cartoon i guess...Somehow somewhere, cartoons got smarter, wittier along the way...Its no longer the 2D watch-and-roll-with-laughter...these days, u get movie references (hands up those who managed to get the insider film jokes) and political and social notions embedded in the lush computer animations. So while i did enjoy the obvious nod to "Born Free" , Planet of the Apes, American Beauty or even LOTR...i just want some mindless, pure, naive 2D fun sometimes...
Catchy song though, had me mimicking through the day =)

Pick Up
Promised you guys a pic of my new pick-up:

My new baby, nothing too fanciful, something affordable...
For those non-Singaporean bloggers out there, please note that owning a car here is like signing a death will, its the highest cost of car-ownership in the world, period.

Probably gonna be my new toy for a while...(can't afford anything else anyway, heh)
Gals, feel free to send me cutesy stuff, like Hello Kitty cushions, steering wheel covers, seat belt warmers etc. First thing to note, i did choose Red (i'm in touch with the SNAG in me, haha). Now, who wants to join in a spot of fun...car washing anybody?

Having a car will probably take some getting used to...imagine missing out on the crowded packed-like-sardine underground train cabins...instead, i'll face long lines of queues to get into the parking lots. Like the throngs of shoppers in town lately...i foresee a sharp spike in this month's economic revenues of the country, every other person was carrying huge bags. And the other person will be in the restaurants or corner snacking away. You can literally hear cash registers ringing in the air, its that scary. But seriously, how many of those "deals" are impulse buys? Already the word on the street is, if u don't need it now, you'll need it for Christmas...Jeez,...

Not that i'm complaining of course, you know me, i'm always open to kind generousity, i never turn down a gift (hint hint, wink wink, nudge nudge)

Baggy-laddy
My good pal KHS always spouted this "wise" saying: "He who pees in the wind, gets wet feet"
Well, i got another: "He who logs at night, gets wood in the morning" hehe
gals, get at me if u dun get it

Something not R-rated... "He who has no belt, has baggy pants"

Broke out my steal of a find from eBay, Complete Finesse camo tee...something about getting it for a third of its value just makes my day :)
Wore my lEvis "southwest soil" denims as well, if u haven't seen it before, i'd describe it as the dirtiest pair of denims allowed to be labeled as "New", haha...probably shocked my pal Ibrahim, maybe cos i was sitting on his precious Mercedes leather seat...

Haven't had much new style info for ya, but do check out the Hideout store, which has finally opened. Just go unload your wallet there, its the sane thing to do.
While on the topic of British stores...do not miss one40five's selection, quality stuff.
Go explore Microzine too, i won't say too much, just that theres nice finds in there....hush, don't blow it y'all ;)
