when it rains, it pours


Caught Angels & Demons as well as Wolverine over the weekend. Thought that the Ron Howard flick was pretty ok for a no-brainer thriller, felt there wasn't as much layers and intrigue as DaVinci Code. But Tom Hanks sure was value for money ('bout 25mil per flick last i heard?), you'd almost think he was to play any role in the movie he appears in. Wolverine was so-so, even as a popcorn-fodder, you get a feeling the script-writer tried to balance too many aspects/characters (the comic-verse is too varied and complex to tell in 2hours) with too many constraints (much of Wolvie's background was already revealed in X1 & X2 anyways). Oh well, i'm just glad to be back in the midst of the movie-going crowd, i think its all gonna build up to the eventual blockbuster bang of "Megan Fox and the Transformers"..yay

Nike x Uniform Experiment Tennis Classic

Last pair, must cop, what else can i say? Big ups to the 78monster for the hook up. Excellent complement to the fragment collab, this is one heck of a blue suede shoe. don't you just love well-laced shoes? left-over-right and right-over-left on the correct pairs? (if you know what i mean, you're obsessed too haha)
BTW, doesn't the UE logo resemble the "cross keys" of Ewan McGregor in Angels&Demons? ;)

New Balance RealMadHectic MT580 15th

Part of the nippon hook up, i almost forgot about this pair. MadHectic always manages t make hot pink match in any footwear colorway. ACG-steez, no? dopeness

skip to my lou...

Just in time for summer, but can i bear to wear my Lou? sighs, dilemma of a t-shirt freak LOL. Is it me, or does the new box cap have a shorter bill, ala cycling race caps?

something old, something new, something green ape camo, something blue

Some ebay haul: ape x stash tee, bape g-shock, ape camo cap custom by Neil (bathing ape print font removed!), brooks bro black fleece s/s shirt(love the button detail)

bathing ape x stash

This was a nice find, an almost forgotten print from yester-year. Stash and his Subware imprint collabs with the ape general. Besides the print, i'm stoked by the vintage sleeve tab

(blank) are so Summer
Unrivaled pocket tees

and of course you can't turn down a LetItRide tee! denim

I'm not sure if i can pull off a full-on denim look, but i'll only do it with this set. hmm, should i, shouldn't i?
Uniform Experiment polos

its all in the details for UE
FCRB polos

how is it that Hirofumi gets the stripes right everytime?
Goodenough shirts

Military shirt is a maybe, but i'm very interested in the un-matching striped shirt!
Goodenough print tees

some Dan Brown ambigram inspiration?

HF's internet obssession reveals itself

interesting "engineer" pocket T and multi-camo shorts

good morning Megan


unrivaled|headporterplus|visvim kooning

Dropped by Shirley's afternoon wedding reception at the Sheraton's famed Dining Room. Lovely view befitting a lovely bride, blissful wedding wishes from the bottom of my heart!

Followed by a quick stopover at Perla's pastry boutique to pick up a pair of lovely cakes for Valencia's house-warming party. This place is tucked away in one of the most secluded locations amidst the posh homes in singapore's prime housing districts, and it had better be. A family-run business encompassing a restaurant, wine bar and pastry boutique in one, the food, service and ambiance is so good you wouldn't want to share it with anyone else!

Hit up the new Uniqlo store Tampines1 mall. Damn, its like a bloody fish market with everyone snapping up the stocks and people just waltzing around and generally blocking everybody else's way. Seriously so unlike the stores in NYC and Japan. I dunno about the rest, but i sorta feel it cheapens the vibe. Sure, prices are low and hella reasonable (promo sales for summer tees/polos, dirt cheap supima cotton items), but housed in the same environment where the local rears its ugly mentality, its a turn off for me. Hope the next one at Ion Orchard fares better


Levis 522 x Junya Watanabe

One of the designs i've always wanted, i was pleasantly surprised by the selvedge denim and general fit on me. The 522 is a slim-fit low waist cut, and i just decided to take a chance (hey, its not everyday u come across a JW pair). As long as its not low enuff to see pubes and my lardly tummy doesn't spill over, its a thumbs up (ok, so sorry for the over-visual adjectives there) hahaha

Goodenough x Complete Finesse sweater

No reason other than "just because its by HF". Rule #234 of streetwear-otaku: party like HF in 1999

Nike Free Woven 5.0 Premium

Yeah, its a mouthful of a name. Basically a hybrid of Nike Free sole (so flexible its like walking brefoot), a woven upper like the Hideout footscape and primo suueeede! Gotta blame S78 for getting me hooked while hunting a pair for him, LOL. Perfect for summer! and remember: no socks allowed!

Lots of pic bloggers abound, do check out fellow otaku Urban Camou's new site thats stores all things lovely: Florilegium
yeah, i got you to wiki the meaning of the word, didn't i? :)
