Bathing Ape or Fading Ape?

It has been 3 months since my last blog entry. Really don't know what to write ma, this Tim forced me to write something today, Ok la, I'm going to write about one of my favorite brands.

If you're into high-end streetwear, I'm sure you heard of BAPE or Bathing Ape by Nigo (Teriyaki Boyz). Like a lot of famous streetwear such as Mastermind Japan, BBC, CLOT (CLOT is not an abbreviation of "Cunt Licking Obviously w/ Tongue) by Edison Chen (I'm sure he is more famous with something else). You'll see a lot of those too in places like Sg Wang, Time Square, etc. But hey, they are real fakes (what an oxymoron).

With more and more "R&D" funds, the fakes look quite real nowadays. However, there are still flaws, I found this video from Youtube and thought it was quite useful:

This video serves as a good tool for BAPE fans to identify the fakes, especially when we are buying from the parallel importers or ebay. It is however advisable to get it from the BAPE stores, there is one in Singapore (nearest), one at Central HK, Taipei, and bunch of them from Tokyo, Japan (cheaper in Japan).

So next time make sure you get yourself a Bathing Ape not Fading Ape ;p

Sorry guys haven’t been updating my blog for awhile; I promise you I will start writing more as I have got plenty to write about.

Something happened last year October and it didn’t go as smooth as I wanted till end October/early November. Things have been moving smoothly since and even better after my 2 HK trips. I think we are just destined to be together.

Dear, thanks for everything. I am so looking forward to our great future.

I am a Vainpot!?

One day my friend im me via msn....It went something like this

Friend: hey are you up for a challenge?
Me: What is that?
Friend: It requires courage
Me: Bring it on!
Friend: Wanna participate in Cleo Most Eligible 50 Bachelor shit?
Me: Huh? i'm not good looking at all wor, I can't lar.
Friend: It's ok one, they don't need good looking people, they need VAINPOT.
Me: ......
When I got home, I would like to see if I was really a vainpot. I did 3 things, checked my closet, checked my toiletries, and checked out the books I read...

To my surprise:

I have not less than 12 bottles of cologne, 2 sets of facial products, 4 cans of hair wax of which 3 of them are different variance and for different occasions, osme all over shampoos, moisturizer, lip balm, face mask, eye mask. Those in the picture are only 60%-70% of what I have.

In the picture, there are more than 20 t-shirts and they contribute to less than 30% of the number of t-shirts that I have; excluding tons of shirts, some suits, peacoat, trencoat, lether jacket, dozen of jeans.....ok enough...

And finally, these are the fashion magazines I have been reading for the past 2 months, Only fashion magazine, ezcluding online research. That stack of mag is as tall as 20"!

So guys, am I a vainpot?

Hello, Can I speak to Giorgio Armani?

If you are Stephen Chow fans, (No I'm not talking about CJ7) you would have watched "Love on Delivery - 破壞之王. The Judo instructor "Black Bear" invited Christie Chung to her house and she rejected and broke his glasses, then he yelled, My Armani glasses ar!!! (Ngo fu Armani ar!!!). So you should know how famous Armani is. No, I'm not talking about Armani suits, and the entire Armani clothing lines.Obviously not England team suits:

Germany World Cup 2006

Well, starting 2007, the official team suit tailor is Mark & Spencer. That's their problem, pick British because of British. No wonder they didn't make it to Euro 2008. But then again, I'm not talking about England also, it's this:

It's the Giorgio Armani phone! The phone is equipped with 3.0MP camera, with big ass 2.6-inch QVGA TFT screen, comes with microSD card slot, graphical user interface (GUI) and audio user interface (AUI) that reflect Giorgio Armani's modern simplicity. By adapting a haptical UI, users can feel an immediate mild vibration when they touch icons on the display. The power-packed GA Phone measures no bigger than the size of a credit card, with the thickness (is there a word called "thinness", coz it's not thick) of only 10.5mm. Yes, ladies, slim enough to fit into the pocket of your skinny jeans! The only thing I don't really like is that the phone is produced by Samsung :(

Yes, everyone loves Armani!

But hey look, while everyone is shouting for iPhone, iPhone, iPhone, don't be a follower go for Giorgio Armani Phone. To me, iPhone is just a another marketing gimmick or conspiracy like Intel CPU chips, hard disk drive, memory, etc. They are capable of producing super CPU for consumers but they prefer to rip us off bit by bit, slowly but surely. Same goes to iPhone, I'm sure next year it's going to be iPhone II or whatever. Well Giorgio Armani Phone, I'm sure you won't see another one so soon. If GA phone is what you're looking for, according GA, they are launching the chic lifestyle/household lines, which consist of cell phone (of course), fridge, lamp, TV, etc etc in 2008.

The GA phone is going to hit the shelf, or already hitting the shelf in Nov 2007 at Giorgio Armani's flagship stores and selected mobile phone shops in major European countries. So my dear fellow colleagues, go grab one when you're in Rome or Milan on coming company trip in December. Me no more money liao :(

Mr. Nuffnang Timothy Tiah is Hokkien Karaoke King!

This guy doesn't speak Cantonese, doesn't write Chinese but he can sing some kick ass Hokkian song. Ladies and gentlemen, Mr. Timothy Tiah aka Mr. Nuffnang (sorry I don'tknow how to rotate the screen, hahaha) >>>

since he's a damn good singer, we asked for an encore., and there you go

But instead of singing Jackie Wu and Landy's "Rooftop", it sounded like an Indian singing on top of the roof in one morning where he got hangover from samsu...can't freaking hearing what he sang! Anyway, we had loads of fun playing the TVB Super Trio game (trying to guess what song was Tim singing everytime he got hold of the mic).

Malaysia International Fashion Week 2007

M-IFW is here again! It will be held at KL Convention Centre from Nov 15 - Nov 18 2007. There will be showcase of some local designers/brands like Jonathan Cheng, Carven Ong, Tangoo, etc etc. I don't really like to go for event like this because those models are wearing some "unwearable" outfits for common people like us. Look at this:

OMG! Startrek by Key NG

How to wear la like this??!! But the are some designers worth checking out, ie Jonathan Cheng and Melinda Looi. If you have nothing to do this weekend, go down to KLCC and support our local fashion and designers.
