Alright, for those who are perfume users, or those who has intention of buying perfume anytime soon (be it for yourself or to others as gift), take note...
Warehouse Sales... all these brands you see below...
Below: Ferragamo incanto dream

Retailing at S$100+ at the shopping malls...
This "TESTER" box is only selling at $45. Yes~! That's S$45!

All of you out there should know they always place a Tester-bottle at the display counter. What you can get off here, is the actual thing without a doubt, just that its the TESTER bottle; comes in the dull-brown box, and the perfume bottle is without the cap.

But HECK! Who cares! What's important is the perfume smell. The bottle stays at home, cap or no cap, it does not matter.

(Close friends of mine would notice the desktop in my room; Yep, I took this picture, cuz my sis bought it)
Then again, if you want to buy the product in its proper packaging (in its beautifully wrapped box and comes with the bottle cap), you can still get it at S$65 (yes, you pay an extra $20 for just the useless cap and the box). Still, its much cheaper than the $100+ at the shopping malls!

Below: Little Vials of vaporiser and EDT (samples)
Since I was there, I picked up the below for S$1 each (although they are samples and not meant for sale), minimum have to buy 3 pieces. But the selection there was ALOT! So I just picked any 3 that caught my eyes~ just try out, and if I like them, I'll return and get the bigger bottle~


10 Ubi Crescent Lobby B, #07-30, UBI TECH PARK

Dragonball The Movie

Dragonball The Movie
Coming to a theatre near you on 13 March 2009...
Starring some American dude with spiky hair as Goku...
Jamie Chung (babelicious~!) as 琪琪 (Qi-Qi is Goku's Fiancee as kid)
Chow Yun Fatt (Yuck~) as 龟仙人
Emmy Rossum as 布马 (pre-teen)
Directed by James Wong (Final Destination)
and produced by Stephen Chow (Kung Fu Hustle)...

No doubt CG technology has improved tremendously over the past decade, like many comments already all over the net, I shared the same feeling that this movie will not work out... but I am still gonna watch anyways... simply because of the human tendency to wanna watch catastrophes...

ah in case you wanna have a rough taste of how Dragonball Live Action might be:

China Olympic Adidas Jackets

China Olympic Adidas Jackets

(BEIJING, July 15) -- Chinese medalists at the 2008 Olympic Games will wear tailored uniforms featuring the colors red and yellow and a "lucky cloud" pattern, according to Xinhua.

Red and yellow are the dominant colors of the Chinese national flag.

Designed by the Beijing Institute of Clothing Technology and made by Worldwide Olympic Partner Adidas, the suits were selected from more than 2,000 entries in an international design contest over a year's time.
Ma Jilong, director of the sports equipment center under the General Administration of Sport of China, lauded the uniforms for their elegance and aesthetic quality.

Adidas has tailored the uniforms for every competing Chinese athlete, manufacturing an unprecedented 17 sizes for heights ranging from 1.40m to 2.26m. The suits are handmade.

Above: Girl's cute~!

It was reported that every athlete will be given two suits, one for the victory ceremony and the other for their personal collection.

Olympic diving champion Gao Min gave a thumbs-up to the outfits, saying they feature the auspicious atmosphere of the Olympic Games and reflect the spirit of Chinese athletes.

Q: I so very much wanted to get my hands on these beautifully designed victory track jackets by Adidas of China's Athletes... saw it on TV and its love at first sight! But it appears very much limited edition...

Guess I can only keep a look out for any of those athletes auctioning them online, or wait for someone with lotsa guts to go "chiong" this design out!

Oh by the way, from Adidas Online Store, you should be able to find many "Made for Beijing" Adidas shoes and Clothing...

Neapolitan Mastiff

Original post by Jeslyn

Behold~ the Neapolitan Mastiff (click to read more from Wikipedia)

Q: Who in the right sense of mind will keep this huge a dog!?? Q: If my enemies were to set this Mastino upon me, I'd most probably just bite my own tongue and die on the spot before the canine's teeth could even reach me...
Interesting Facts:
a) This breed is reported to have been pitted against Lions in the Colosseum and other ancient Roman arenas.

b) The Neapolitan Mastiff rarely barks unless under provocation, renowned for sneaking upon intruders as opposed to alerting them of their presence first.

Q: One of the best Outdoor Advertisement ideas I've seen...

Gigantic potholes on the road? Slow down...
Muddy road ahead? Slow down...

More potholes on the road? Slow down...Just what is this "Feels like Pioneer Suspension" on the lane?
Orh... so thats how the muddy road came about...
and those giant potholes are fake~!
Q: Well, it sure brings across the message that "Pioneer Suspension" lets you drive across such uneven surfaces like its so flat~ makes drivers slow down and pay attention as well. Bravo~!

Driving: The responsibilities of a driver 2

A car collides into cyclist participating in a race in Mexico’s northern border city of Matamoros. At least one person was killed and 14 injured when a driver slammed into a bicycle race. Police investigator Jose Alfredo Rodriguez says the 28-year-old driver was apparently drunk and fell asleep when he crashed into the race. Rodriguez says Juan Campos was charged with killing Alejandro Alvarez, 37, of Monterrey.

Campos says he is an American citizen living in Brownsville, Texas. U.S. consulate spokesman Todd Huizinga said officials were looking into whether Americans were involved.

Mahou Tsukai ni Taisetsu na Koto: Natsu no Sora

Mahou Tsukai ni Taisetsu na Koto: Natsu no Sora
魔法遣いに大切なこと ~夏のソラ~

Aired: 03.07.2008 till 18.09.2008
TV Series, 12 episodes
Genre: Magic
Producers: Hal Film Maker

In this world, Nami has the power of using magic, but with her clumsy nature she has no means of controlling it, although it's secondary to the way of controlling her feelings. When she meets Ryotaro Tominaga by crashing his bike, she becomes more and more anxious to understand her first love, while Ryotaro is despising her. Nami has a kind heart and soul, but she lacks courage and spirit to make crucial decisions especially in the last year of high-school. Here Nami and her friends reside in the world of magic, mixed feelings, missunderstanding, unrequited love, hate and passion to realize where they all belong.

Suzuki Sora is a cheerful country girl from the small town of Biei. She made a promise to her father, and following this promise applied and is accepted for a magic intership in Tokyo, where she will face the life in a big city. While training to get better with her magic, she meets a mysterious boy also practicing to become a mage. While he can not use magic that well and he seems distant and cold at first, Sora's fate intertwines with his and the two are thrown together, learning a lot of new things about life and each other.

Based on the Mahou Tsukai ni Taisetsu na Koto ~Natsu no Sora~ shounen manga by Yamada Norie and illustrated by Yoshizuki Kumichi, serialised in Shounen Ace in 2008.

The story is set in present day Tokyo. Much of the setting is based upon real areas, the more obvious ones being the Shibuya Crossing and Tokyo Tower. The main backdrop of the series where they all reside is in Shimokitazawa, roughly 6 minutes west of Shibuya on the Keio Inokashira Line. In Tokyo is the Bureau of Magic, which employs Mage Labour for certain special requests by everyday people. However, the mages must only use their magic with special permission, and any unlicensed use results in a penalty.

Q: I just finished watching episode 1 of this amazing title and is so thrilled that I immediately blogged this up! I must say that this is one title that I gave my 5-star rating from merely less than 3 mins into episode 1. Yep, most of the backdrop of this anime is based on real actual areas, so you get to see Tokyo in its very true form! What to look out for is how the production and camera crew went through the efforts to capture the real life scene. Its not easy capturing such scenes especially when you have to cope with human traffic and timing. Appreciate their efforts!

In addition, I love the soundtracks so much! Check out its Official Website and tune up your speakers~

Hope the story develops well~

Beckham in a Pitch

Original post by Jeslyn Wong. (Dun say I never give credits ya~)
Stumbled upon her blog and found lotsa funny stuffs there.
Do visit her blog: Singapore Girl @ Berlin

Hot and Sexy Cheerleaders parading right in front of Beckham...
Beckham steals a glance...
(Q: How NOT to see? Its right in front of him! Those white hot pants and toned bon-bon! err.. Thunder-thigns though...)

Beckham felt a murderous intent beside him... Victoria's jealous! Hmmpf~!
Victoria gives the cold shoulder! Beckham's gonna be sleeping in the living room that night~

Q: Ho ho ho... I guess such things happens everywhere and between every couples. As a guy, I say, if you wanna steal such eye-candy, dun get caught... if you get caught, well you've got to put your coaxing skills into exercise!

As for the girls, come on... its natural to get jealous and angry that your guy's salivating over some cheerleaders in those sexy uniforms~ but when a whole group of them is performing right in front, how not to see? Shut your eyes until they are gone? Situational-wise, Beckham ought to be forgiven isn't it?

Guess it time Victoria should put on some of her sexy skin-tight clothing and seduce his hubby back~ wahahaha

Make a choice 3

something for the guy-readers...

You are in Akihabara at Asobit Game when all of a sudden there is a tsunami warning. You have 5 seconds to choose a DVD which will act as a float to keep you alive.The 3D girl is Moe-chan and the 2D girls are from the eroge Elf Hime - click on "sample CG" to see the NSFW shots.

Q's choice: Moe-Chan. She's so kawaii~!

Q's mind:
I honestly tell you, when I am overseas, I make it a point to visit their video stores no matter what -- Because they usually sell stuffs that Singapore doesn't. Take my last trip to Taipei for example, I got [色。戒。starring Tony Leung] - Director's Cut - but never really got the chance to watch the show cuz the disc is destroyed... (long story, which I have gotten over)

As for the above topic... Adult Video Stores are a fun place to enter. One might say that such stores wun survive because such videos are abundance on the Internet. I only have one sentence to offer - "The joy is not in watching the content, its in the buying and owning".

No, its not just those cheapo-plastic-wrapped pirated DVDs, I am referring to those ORIGINAL Adult DVDs in their original casing.

Question: Have you bought any adult videos?
Q: Nope, none yet, but will buy if I have the chance. Just bringing it back into Singapore and risk getting caught at the customs is refraining me from doing so...

Less than 24 hours since I drove out my new Honda Fit from the Showroom...

Rear butt kena whacked, rear windscreen shattered... my heart also shattered... ( T . T )
