Copped the pic while in my uncle's mini van last week. 'Scuse the huge turn-ups on the denims, i didn't even had time to alter them properly. Hmm, that reminds me, gotta head down to Johnny's shop sometime to get it done. 2nd pic is of the long-delayed Singapore Flyer project, viewed from the expressway. Sure seems to be coming up fast. For those interested, you supposedly could see up to Indonesia and far into Malaysia on a clear [haze-less] day, since its even taller than the London Eye.
Yeah, as you'd guess, our neighbours will have something to complain about yet again. Peep this nice read in the Economist for a change - yep, we like it, loud and proud

Caught The Protege on Saturday. From the dearth of good HK movies lately, i'd think its a good bet for the Golden Horse award. It's a pretty straight forward plot about undercover cops on a drug raid ala Infernal Affairs aka The Departed for Hollywood folks. And i guess you really can't mess with the tried and tested formula. I do wish for them to do away with the somewhat "sweet" ending where the proverbial "love conquers all" theme kicks in; they should've ended with Daniel Wu's Nick in a conundrum on whether to get sucked into drugs or the undercover world,that would be a nice parallel. All said, Andy Lau should get a Best Actor nod since he lost to Tony Leung for Infernal.

'Preme Ari tee.Haze GShock.Stussy Skull Gramps.Olive World Cup wovens
Popped by town real quick today to pick up a nice bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon for KK's housewarming gathering. I'm beginning to enjoy the dash of grapes lately, a nice chnge from the hard stuff.
Nexus7 "Alicia does it better"

Fresh off Tomohiro's blog, this tee is done for R*izm's anniversary. Lovely rendition ala Stussy's photo-print, and carrying on this season's "Kate Moss does it better" theme [anybody able to help me out with that one?], N7 brings out longtime print-fave Alicia Keys [besides Angie of course]

In case you missed it, here's the N7 x HP Boston. The size is perfect don'tcha think?
Hysteric Glamour - Kurt

Hysteric pays timely homage to Kurt [it was his birthday last week]
I've checked and i've read in forums that its all sold out. Sad, cos i would've loved one...

From the creative head behind ihavepop, Juse brings forth Lavar based on the streets of LA. Check out the dope visuals on the site background, the current collection and the latest drop: JBA customs

50 tees, individually customised, hand dyed, stitched, pulled etc, designed by Lavar crew member Jim Bauer, they are now up online. I'm a stickler for all-over prints and these are slowly growing on me! Best be quick if you want them in your size/print preference
holler back, J

Its the question on everybody's lips..."Do you know Merkley???"
Simply awesome photographer making a name for himself in the webspace of flickr, using nothing but a good eye, wit, great photoshop technique and and endless supply of naked women.
when i grow up, i wanna be a flickr photographer...

Product Placementz
Supz, couple of visuals to start the weekend spending...
Addict UK - 07 artist series
Addict's got a brand new line up of their popular artist series tees:

Jago and Mode2 [my fave of the lot]

SheOne [still pushing out mind blowing strokes] and Will Barras [keepin' it simple]
Give a shoutout to the guys, their collections are definitely for keeps.
Devon Aoki for LevisLadyStyle
Love this set of print ads for Levis Lady Style featuring Devon Aoki

The Ladystyle closet in Shinjuku boasts a red carpet-like installation that gives customers a sensation of walking on a bed of roses, and the Kaleidoscope Room chaging area with mood floor lighting engulfing the room in dreamy lights, sights and sound.
4-1-7 Shinjuku, Shinjuku-ku
ACR F/W 07/08

Not that i feel the need to post this, but those in know would've known already. But if i read the mailer correctly, the clothing pics weren't supposed to be shown to public right? so what's with the all the coverage?
SoleObsession - Pt3

Part 3 of the sneak peek, check out the shoe that will be given away on the Sunday [4th Mar]. Lottery will only be available to the 1st 50, so drop by early eh? and remember to give a pat on the back for my man Eugene
Griffin reflect case

These Griffin tech cases "present a seamless, mirrored-chrome reflective face to the world -- until you wake up your player, and the brightened screen shows through the chrome as if by magic".
Plus it doubles as a vanity mirror! LOL

New Year's are always a time for new clothes, thankfully my bounty of tees come in handy.
Day 1's Polo tee.Double RL slims.Haze G-shock.SlamJam Terminators [well, the FengShui master said i gotta wear a little red on Day1]
Day 2: Electric Cottage.Double RL slims.Fragment Casio DB81.Visvim Serra [same dude said it was auspicious to have green on Day2, i think olive qualifies]
Nite 2: Bape x F2K. w)taps roll-ups. Woven olive WC edition [not pictured, but its in the archives]
toy greets

Think i look quite like this Qee bear, hahaha. In any case, more greetings from my toys to ya. Yum Seng is what the Cantonese call a toast, and we sure have lots of those during our meals!
And those singles [like me] will get to "earn" our keep, so to speak...haha

SoleObsession - Puma Clyde display

Yet another update in the build up to the gathering on 4th Mar, this time a sneak peek at the ultra rare display of Clydes. Peep the Doug E Fresh and Cash Money suedes: So rare and discontinued that its rumored that even the celebrities themselves don't even have them!
NB JP - RC576 [???]
This one caught me a little off-guard. The Japan exclusive set of 576 has been given the RC - racing comp treatment. Sleeker lines and outsole, and a revamped encap heel cap give the 576 a nice makeover!

Its an eventful week alrite. Best of health and wishes, from me at r@ndom r@mblings, to all my freindz and fam celebrating the Chinese New Year!
this lil' piggy went to the cake shop

Check out these 2 concoctions by the local cakery Breadtalk. Cute critters aren't they? No offence to Muslim friends out there of coz.
a drop in time
Y'know, i've been slagging off the Singapore Post for a while now, with the ridiculous service [deliberately not delivering parcels to door] to the rude [i think my door almost fell from the incessant knocks/hammerings]. But whaddya know, for the first time in a while, my perception of them might be changing. The folks actually delivered today - a normally half-day at the office!
So now yours truly finally gets some brand new denims and tee to remember the years...
uncovering those days

This tee takes me back a few years. Of course, the UC connosieurs have their Intermissions, Madsaki, But Beautiful faves, but i seriously adore this print, the forebearer to the cutesy/insanely popular UC teddy Converse.
And its such a subtle play on the Radiohead logo[!], haha
Good Vibes Fest
I most prolly won't be joining [some relations visiting], but for those dropping by the Good Vibrations Festival on 19th Monday, as if the Beasties and Jurassic5 ain't enough, be sure to spot the tricked out Subaru by Romon Yang aka Rostarr at the event too!

Don't forget to checkout the Rostarr DXA exhibition curated by Miguel Chew, sponsored by the friendly folks from Surrender and Kinemat on the 20th Feb.
