stoner days
Been a strange weeks of sorts. Can't seem to really get into the groove of things. Head's been a little messed with a bad fever in the early hours of Monday morn. Not sure if its related, but i've been, like half a step behind at work as well. Think theres only one way to cure this: not working...LOL
Popped by the airshow. Its been ages since i last went to the event. I finally understood why, once i arrived at the new site for this year's airshow. The "trade days" are absoulute heaven compared to the "public days": no long queues, free food and drinks, taking your time to soak in the sights and sounds...
And its even coler when you get processed through security in 5minutes, much to the annoyance of folks who arrived ONE hour earlier.. heh heh (gotta gimme a break, i've only got these little luxuries in life to gloat on, hahaha)
Just in time for our local lads in F16C's

Foursomes in formation while the 2 soloists conduct some hair-raising criss-crossing

The other mates soon came back to form a belated V-day wish of sorts... awww...

too bad about the ugly brollies up front, hahaha

and the final "bomb-blast"...pretty spectacular stuff

And they make their exit with a spectaular inter-twining

Theres tons of shutterbugs out there so go get your aviation fix from flickr sites etc. I'm gonna get myself a good cam (provided i can prevent myself from spending other stuff first) in future, haha
maildrop: Visvim Kooning

Came home to a nice surprise when the Koonings get dropped off. Can't pass up a good deal, 'specially when its deadstock. Wear it with dirty torn jeans? skinnies? formal? yup, versatile

Thinking of getting a pack, either a messenger-style or (yet) another daypack. This wool messenger looks pretty pair
Money Clothing swag bag and belt

Speaking of bags, this is one literal money bag. Seriously what makes a premium leather bag worth 799quid? Gotta be lined with money i hear ya say? Yeap!
Not forgetting 18carat gold zips, knick knacks and what nots, you better hook this up to yourself real tight

3191 - a year of evenings

One of my fave sites to check out in 2007 is Stephenie and Mav's 3191visualblog. The 2 girls live 3191 miles apart and each one takes a photo everyday, not knowing what the other has taken. They've moved on to a Year of Evenings for 2008! Lovely!!!
And if you loved the 2007 edition, they've published a book!

you complete me...

Gosh, this LV charm is too cute

A subdued V-day last week, pretty busy with work and all. Was great meeting up with a couple of friends and work relations as well. Sure brought back memories of the days of part-time work and slogging to get some moolah to spend for the weekends, haha.
Monkton's thoughts...

Was wandering around the streets of Melbourne (last month) lost in my own thoughts when i saw this card in a small little card/craft shop. I don't know how it is but it just so happens to be related to the someone i was thinking of, and it made me miss her more. I guess this is what fate means, so i def knew i had to get it. Sent it for Thursday, and i guess she should've gotten it, hope she appreciated it...wish she'd call though...
45RPM Badou R distressed denim
I posted my pair of Sorahiko's a while back, but i think i left out this precious pair that's been in my wardrobe for some time.

the Badou R series of denim isn't too ex, but having a distressed pair is certainly tough hunting work. The denim masters will do up a pair personally if you bring 'em to the stores. But seeing as how i'm not near Tokyo, this pair is as close as it gets. One of the best "whiskering" i've seen yet

Its more of a rocker-look i'm going for, coz its a rather skinny cut. But how i just love the details, check out the buttons! ha
Stussy XXV x Birkenstock Tatami
Now i've had plenty of great ebay steals for some time. Its been tough hunting them down. But this one is truly ranks in my top 3 best ebay steals

Released in Japan as part of Stussy's year-long XXV anniversary celebrations, this collab featured Birkenstock's Tatami sandals, done up with Shawn Stussy's vintage-style rasta artwork. For those of us Stussy-headz, this was one elusive collab to add to the collection. Peep the shoe bag in custom artwork as well!

There wasn't a typo on the auction, but i guess the sizing put off a couple of potential bidders. Those years of sniping sure sharpened the gut instinct, ha! Last pic shows XXV woven tag detailing. Ain;t too worried about the bright colorway - just in time for Summer madness! woohoo!
adidas Stella McCartney
Always been a fan of Stella's range for adidas. The new 08 season is up!
And as much i love the apparel, i really like the accessories

Tote bag is pretty utilitarian while the running bag looks like a fun sling pouch to own. Anyone with some nice hookups on them?
she is Vikki Blows - she is in lingerie. 'nuff said

Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue is out!
