Hello, again

It's been more than two years since I've updated this blog.

I probably don't have any readers (anyone out there reading this?), but I'd like to get back into the habit of blogging.

Today is 10/11/12, a nice sequence of numbers, a good day to restart blogging!

Here's to a successful (re)start back to the world of blogging!

Liking the Coach Kristin Collection

Something has caught my eye lately, and it's the Coach :: Kristin Collection of handbags!

Previously, Coach handbags were never in my radar of must-have items, mostly due to the fact that I didn't really like their signature logo that were plastered all over their canvas bags. If there was a design I liked, I never got it because it only came in the canvas material with the signature logo.

The Kristin Collection is different (at least to me)! I love how soft the leather looks, and the soft, feminine colors. The styles are very versatile as well. And although there are designs that bear the signature logo (it's great if you like the signature logo, it's just a personal preference), those in the plain leather look fantastic to me!

Here's another thing to add to my growing list of 'want' items... :)

Things that annoy me..

Don't you just hate it when some bird droppings fall onto your car window just few hours after you've sent it for a wash?

That happened to me yesterday. And although I know these are things you can't control, I just felt so annoyed! My car had only been clean and shiny for a few hours. If it happened the next day, I wouldn't have minded so much...but on the same day?

Just wanted to have a small rant on one of the things that annoy me...

I want to go to wonderland...

Okay, I don't literally want to go there, but I absolutely can't wait to see the world that Tim Burton has created in his new film Alice In Wonderland!

I guess this is one of my most anticipated movies, especially since Tim Burton is working with one of his most frequent collaborators - Johnny Depp. The images look fantastically dark - this is nothing like the previous animated version! Wonderland (or Underland as it is called in this movie) is almost like another character in the movie, the way Tim Burton brings it to life.

I won't look up any more spoilers images or anything because I want to enjoy the movie when I'm watching it next week! Can't wait!

Another day, another month

The month of February just zoomed past. It is the shortest month of the year with only 28 days (29 on leap years). And this year, February seems even shorter with the Lunar New Year holidays. Time just seems to fly by when you're on vacation and not needing to worry about work.

Today is March 1st. And the beginning of a long two months before another holiday for us working folks here in Penang, Malaysia. Now that I'm working, I really look forward to the public holidays that we get each year. This year, there are no holidays in March and April. So that makes it 60 days before our next holiday on May 1st. That just seems so far away. But somehow, even when working, I know it will pass soon, and then I'll be enjoying my three-day weekend again.

Oh, how I wish to be studying again and getting those long breaks between semesters! If I could tell my studying-self back then one thing, it would be to cherish and enjoy those breaks. Cause in the working life, there are no such things. There are only public holidays observed several times throughout the year. But some is better then none, right?

Sexiest phone ever - new LG chocolate

image source

Is this not the sexiest mobile phone ever?

The LG BL40 Chocolate phone is the latest addition to LG's Black Label line. The Chocolate phone is unique as there's none quite like it. The sleek lines makes it a very fashionable phone, and the specs are not shabby either. A 21:9 cinematic screen? Gimme this phone now!

I saw this phone in person recently, and the length is longer than most other phones. But it does fit perfectly in the palm!

I would love to get this phone! Anyone kind enough to gift it to me?

Mascots of 2010 Winter Olympics

One of the things I look forward about the Olympics, whether Summer or Winter games, are the mascots that they come up with each year.

This time, for the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver, Canada, are mascots inspired by First Nation creatures.

According to the Wikipedia entry on the 2010 Winter Olympics, here are the description of the mascots:

  • Sumi: An animal guardian spirit who wears the hat of the orca whale, flies with the wings of the mighty Thunderbird and runs on the strong furry legs of the black bear.
  • Quatchi: A sasquatch, who wears boots and earmuffs.
  • Miga: A mythical sea bear, part orca and part kermode bear.
Miga and Quatchi are the mascots for the Olympics games, while Sumi is the mascot for the Paralympic games.

The design team must have very creative been in order to come up with the Olympic mascots that reflects the culture and people of the host country every Olympic game.
