The Best Shoes for Men's Khakis and Chinos

Wondering which shoes to pair with those khakis and chinos? It all depends on the outfit, the occasion, and the look you're going for.

The good news is that because khakis are so versatile, they can be worn with a huge variety of shoe styles. But remember, khakis aren't suit pants, and they aren't jeans. Therefore the trick in wearing khakis successfully is to avoid shoes that are too dressy, or too casual.

Here are a few of the best shoes to wear with khakis.


Weather permitting, sandals are a fabulous choice for keeping khakis looking casual. But choose your sandals wisely, lest you get into that dangerous territory where you just look confused.

Bright colors are a definite "don't," as are most sandals with rubber straps.

Instead, look for sleek, stylish sandals like thongs and slides with smooth uppers in black, browns, dusky blues, muted greens, earthy shades or even whites.

Trendier styles, such as those with frayed edges, toe rings, or hardware can really lend an edge to khakis, but should only be worn in very casual settings.


Aside from wearing them with flip-flops, the quickest way to take khakis to their most casual level is by pairing them with sneakers. But even if you're going for a laid-back look, there's no need to be sloppy about it.

Unless you're under 21, in a band, on a skateboard, or have several tats and piercings to support your rebellious ways, it's best to avoid wearing certain sneakers with khakis. Ratty high tops, skate shoes, and puffy white trainers are just a little "too" casual for most occasions.

Instead, look for laid-back slip-ons, earth-toned retro styles, or anything with a bit of European flair. Avoid heavy velcro-straps, big logos, bright colors, and anything that's too "busy" with stripes or patterns.

Casual Shoes: Oxfords, Loafers, Mocs, etc.

There are very few casual shoes that don't work with chinos and khakis. Whether you prefer a lace-up oxford or a slip-on shoe, the main thing to remember is that you want a shoe that works with the rest of your outfit, not one that overpowers it.

To keep your shoes from stealing the attention from the rest of your outfit, avoid styles that have a lot of fussy detailing, wild prints, or features that make them seem overly clunky.

When it's a casual look you're going for, you don't want your shoes to seem like a try-hard. Look for simple, attractive styles in a color that complements the rest of your ensemble.

Dress Shoes: Trendy or Classic

As I said above, khakis are not a substitute for suit pants. However, they can be brought to a level that is quite appropriate for many business settings and dressier occasions.

While most dress shoes will work well with chinos, I prefer to see really shiny black dress shoes saved for suits and other dress pants. But a pair of khakis is the perfect complement for all those trendy dress styles that might be a little too trendy for really formal settings. They're also great for pairing with different materials and textures.

Scarf ! the Fashion Veil of Today

The significance of how the scarf emerged as a fashion accessory as well as its religious significance in the cultures of the world, is little known. The scarf, adorned by a woman from different parts of the world in religion as well as a fashion garment is highlighted. A scarf is a delicate piece of cloth used for protection or as a religious veil or purely as fashion. The oldest evidence of the scarf dates as far back as 1000 B.C., where women in the Chinese sculptures are seen wearing scarves. Scarves known as ‘sudarium’ in ancient Rome, was a handkerchief used to wipe sweat off the face and neck. ater, the Romans modified the sudarium into a scarf. From then on, the scarf was knotted to the belt or worn around the neck by men. When women adopted the scarf, it became a fashion accessory.

Another myth of the scarf centers around the Duke of Krakow, a celebrated explorer. In 1783, the Duke wrapped a self knit woolen material around his neck to keep himself warm. However, he got strangled with his own scarf when it got entangled in his husky pulled sledge. Ironically, the cause of his death was the invention of a woolen scarf. Croation mercenaries have worn scarves since the 17th century. The French were attracted by this piece of clothing and adopted the scarf calling them cravats, from the Croatian word - kravata. By the 19th century the scarf, was a fashion accessory in every man and woman’s wardrobe.

In every religion the name or form of the scarf may be different but universally it symbolizes modesty, sanctity and character. Men and women wear scarves either as veils or turbans as part of their religious attire. Amongst the Muslims, the head scarf worn by women is known as the hijab. The Quran describes the hijab as a curtain that gives muslim women their privacy. The hijab in Quranic Arabic is known as the khimar. Jewish women wear a tichel - a head scarf worn to the Jewish synagogues. Amongst the Hindus, the dupatta is the Indian version of the scarf used to cover the forehead and head. Catholics wear veils to cover their heads, where scarves symbolize holiness.

In Tibet, katas are white scarves that are symbols of hope, prosperity and happiness. As a protective garment, scarves were used by aircraft pilots to avoid breathing in exhaust fumes. Tuareg tribes use a ‘cheche’ to protect themselves from the desert wind and sand. A cheche also known as a tagelmust is many layered covering the head and drapes down loosely to cover the neck.

In regions of Africa and West Indies, women wear scarves as turbans or head wraps to protect the head. Scarves soon entered the world of academic uniforms signifying merit, academic affiliation and distinction. Scouts wear scarves to indicate seniority and units to which they belong. In different parts of the world scarves are known by a variety of names- an ‘ascot’ in England, a ‘babushka’ in Russia, a ‘mantilla’ in Spain or the ‘bandana’ in Italy. Depending on their lengths and use, scarves are also known by names like jabot, ruana, hacking, muffler, do-rags or fichus.

Scarves were glamourized when actors like Grace Kelley and Greta Garbo, stylishly wore them on the silver screen. Made from different fabrics like wool, silk, cotton, rayons and synthetic nylons scarves must be light weight as they are draped around the head and neck. They are given a smooth textured finish so that they flow without sticking.

Scarves come in different shapes and dimensions - rectangular, squares or triangles as also in exotic colors and prints adorned with sequins or tassels. Tied around the neck in different knots or secured with a piece of jewellery, a scarf adds sudden color to a dull outfit. Covering the head with a scarf is traditional, but used as a belt, tied around the forehead or wrist is today’s scarf in fashion.

Men's Wardrobe Essentials

I have decided that I am going to start on fashion stuff for men as well! So things that I find interesting and needs to be taken note of I will post it up and of course I'll add a url link for the reference of the webpage source!

To kick it off, I will start with the Essentials for Every Man's Wardrobe.

Men's wardrobe essentials - I thought it would be interesting to ask Kim Johnson Gross of Chic Simple Ltd what wardrobe essentials every man should have in his closet. I also asked her for some bargain shopping tips for those of us who want to stretch our wardrobe dollars. The advice she provided gives every guy the essentials he needs for a practical and functional wardrobe that will carry him though many different occasions.

Where to Start?
According to Gross, when it comes to building a functional wardrobe, the first thing a guy must do is assess his lifestyle. Does he need to wear a suit every day? If so, then he will need several suits. Is he in a more casual setting at work? If so, then perhaps he needs more khakis or jeans than trousers or suits. No matter what his particular situation though, there are things every man should have in his wardrobe.

Men's Wardrobe Essentials

  1. A suit (navy or gray)
  2. - Even if you only need a suit a couple of times a year, you're glad to have it on hand when those occasions arise. Navy or gray suits are classic and neutral and can be dressed up or down. You can even wear the blazer with khakis or jeans. This is an item worth spending some money on.

  3. Black shoes and belt
  4. - These can be worn with khakis, jeans and your suit. This is an essential combo. Before buying brown, get black. I think you will find you get more mileage out of them, especially when attending more formal or evening functions.

  5. White dress shirt (good for day and night occasions)
  6. - White dress shirts look good on just about everybody. They look sharp and are versatile but should not to be worn as a casual shirt.

  7. Solid tie - Solid ties are easy and versatile. If solid isn't your thing, try a classic diagonal stripe. Having several tie patterns on hand will ensure you are prepared for interviews, weddings and evening events.
  8. Blue blazer - A blue blazer is good for all year round and easily coordinates with khakis and other items. If that bores you, try a tweed sport coat but also keep in mind that tweed is really only useful in fall and winter. Either way a blazer or tweed sport coat holds a look together.
  9. Khakis and jeans
  10. - No explanation necessary here. Jeans are a staple of the American wardrobe. Khakis are the same.

  11. Overcoat
  12. - An overcoat doesn't necessarily mean a long coat. It also means 3/4-length or car coat length. This item really finishes an outfit and can be worn with everything including jeans. And everyone needs a coat in winter, right? Well, maybe not if you live in places like Phoenix or San Diego.

  13. Briefcase
  14. - A briefcase does not necessarily mean a hard case. It can be soft, or messenger bag style. In a man is has to carry files and other documents, this is an essential.

  15. Athletic wear
  16. - Even for non-athletic types, athletic wear is great for those lazy Sundays and dashes to the convenience store at wee hours of the morning.

  17. Casual shirt - A casual shirt such as a polo or button down is a must have to wear with jeans or other casual pants.
  18. Deconstructed suit - A deconstructed suit is great because it has a relaxed look but is pulled together. Also, the pants and blazer can be worn separately)

A word of advice: start simple and expand according to lifestyle. Classics don't mean boring.

Bargains Shopping Tips
There is only one thing to say - buy on sale! After Christmas or season’s end sales are best. But don't buy something just because it is on sale or is a great deal. It should be something you would want to wear anyway and coordinates with your wardrobe. Also, if you find something on sale that may not have a perfect fit, don't be shy about taking it to a tailor. Buy comfortable clothes that make you feel confident and fit your style.

Please pay attention to this article. It is of utmost importance

I just got this forwarded mail from a friend today and it sounds pretty scary ! I am posting it so that all the people I care about who reads this blog and to the people around the world! Everybody be careful!!!

Subject: Please pay attention to this article. It is of utmost importance.
Date: Thu, 29 Jan 2009 12:28:02 +0800

Please pay attention to this article. It is of utmost importance.

Three women in KL turned up at hospitals over a 5-day period,
all with the same symptoms - fever, chills, vomiting, followed by muscular collapse, paralysis and finally,death.
There were no outward signs of trauma. Autopsy results showed toxicity in the blood. These women did not know each other, and seemed to have nothing in common.

It was discovered, however, that they had all visited a same restaurant along Jalan Kuchai Lama within days of their deaths. The health department descended on the restaurant, shutting it down. The food, water and air conditioning were all inspected and tested, to no avail.

The big break came when a waitress at the restaurant was rushed to the hospital with similar symptoms. She told doctors that she had been on vacation, and had only went to the restaurant to pick up her check. She did not eat or drink while she was there, but had used the restroom.

That is when one toxicologist, remembering an article he had read, drove up to the restaurant, went into the restroom and lifted the toilet seat. Under the seat, out of normal view, was a small spider. The spider was captured and brought back to the lab,where it was determined to be the Two-Striped Telamonia (Telamonia dimidiata), so named because of its reddened flesh color. This spider's venom is extremely toxic but can take several days to take effect. They live in cold, dark, damp climates, and toilet rims provide just the right atmosphere.

Several days later, a lawyer from JB showed up at a hospital emergency room.. Before his death, he told the doctor that he had been away on business, had taken a flight from Indonesia , changing planes in Singapore , before returning home. He did not visit the restaurant while there. He did, as did all of the other victims, have what was determined to be a puncture wound, on his right buttock.

Investigators discovered that the flight he was on had originated in India . The Civilian Aeronautics Board (CAB) ordered an immediate inspection of the toilets of all flights from India , and discovered the Two-Striped Telamonia (Telamonia dimidiata) spider's nests on four different planes!

It is now believed that these spiders can be anywhere in the country. So please, before you use a public toilet, lift the seat to check for spiders.

It can save your life! And please pass this on to everyone you care about.

There are Male Flashers in One Utama!!

I was walking down ONE Utama about a month or so back.. and while I was coming out of Rock Corner, going down the escalator from the samsung booth and down towards Baskin Robbins, on the bridge, 3rd flr of One Utama, I was stunned to see this!

I was like... ( O.O !) .... what the freakin! I quickly rush over the other side, and it was.. this...

This time I was like =.="

Even this lady over here is like walking off in disgust!

Seriously... you don't get to see these kinds of ads in Malaysia as it is probably bordering the very thin line of the Censorship board of Malaysia. I mean it this is mild when you go to like Europe, Japan, and even the US!

Hmm.. It does catch people's attention.... I guess... and is Malaysia starting to open up (in terms of Advertising and Censorship) ?

It would be Great! Cause.. New creative ways can be used for advertising instead of designers and advertising agencies, scratching their heads and getting stuff rejected from the Censorship Board!

You Are Chili Peppers

You are smokin' hot, and you can't help heat up everyone else around you.

It's not unusual for you to make people flushed and excited. You flaunt your sexuality.

My *09 CNY Experience... / TIme for Shopping!

Ahh well ... holidays come and go... this year the CNY celebrations seems to be fast and also seems to be dull-er than last years, and I thought that it was just my family and relatives but my friends also says that this year was not as fun and was dull as it was just like a normal holiday rather than a festive season.

Here are some pictures from my trip to Pahang from Sunday to Tuesday.

The home-made Yee Sang @ Temerloh, Pahang.

Lou Sang, Lou Sang!!

Yummy yummy Yee Sang! Our family enjoys our Yee Sang with Pomelo, lots of peanut and lots of garlic,onions & shalots!

My CNY celebrations in Temerloh, Pahang was pretty alright. Grandma was cooking up her famous curry and her other homemade specialties and our regular family steamboat and Lou Sang.

Whiles over in PJ, city celebrations seems to have turned down a notch. My grandma from my dad's side of the family normally cooks up a storm in her kitchen with Popiah, steamed fish, 100% made Yee Sang, and other nice nice food, but this year every one was doing pot luck. So... I dunno... But good thing the 'ang pows' are great! :D

Time for Shopping!

Oh remember the shopping list i made here. Well I finally got my flip flops!

I didn't take a picture cause my camera ran out of batt... I got it from Padini Authentics at 50% discount. only at RM 15!!!

I was tempted to buy 2 pairs ... but yea .. save money, save money.. I kept reminding myself!

So i saved RM35 on the flippys!

Adrianna says I am a "Metro"..

I had a friend over at my house.. a close friend of mine, her name is Adrianna she is one of my best friends visiting from NY over here and she is staying over at my place... so she asked me to do this quiz on 'How boyish and how girlish you are' and this was my result!

You Are 20% Boyish and 80% Girlish ...

You Are 20% Boyish and 80% Girlish

Even if you're not a girl, you're very feminine.

You're in touch with your feelings, and your heart rules you.

A bit of a emotional roller coaster, one moment you're up and the next you're down.

But no matter what, you try to be as cute and perky as possible.

Me: what? as the Concierge? Carry your shopping bags? -.-

What's more you are metro!

Me: Hey! I am not metro sexual orientated OK! In terms of dressing i am modern, have style !! *Hump!*

A: Ok OK... but u know what i mean rite? You dress is metro!

I finally found 4 nice Tees!

Ahh today I was at the Curve, original purpose was to meet up with some friends, but thing is since my brother is going to be there @ TGIF for a friend's birthday (Happy Birthday to Mei Fong again! :D ), I decided to join them for a meal with them.

I ordered a Jack Daniel's Chicken, I thought it looked small, but it was quite filling! I could barely eat half of the 2nd piece of chicken breast meat! But I must say the Jack Daniel's sauce was darn good!Jack Daniel's Chicken with mixed sauteed veg and Creamy Mash.

Half way through TGIF, my friends called me as they arrived slightly earlier than what was originally planned!

We (Sarah, Jason, Jane, Shantee Tee, Rachel) met up and we walked around in the Curve.

G2000, Padini Concept, Nichii, Giordano, Tough, MNG, Metrojaya, FOS... Well we didn't find anything interesting, except a few stuff, the girls bought new heels (Vinci), halters (MNG), jeans (Padini), belts (Nichii). Well the guys, me and Dave, Dave just got a new formal buttoned Shirt from Padini, a darn nice one indeed, I mean of course.. the top cost RM120! but really aside from the "nice" price tag, it was a really nice shirt.

Me? Well here is a picture of what I got for the day. :D

I got a Giordano Regular plain Burgundy T, top left.

From Brands Outlet in Ikano i got 3 Garage Graphictee
  1. The black T with a Rickenbacker guitar (left)
  2. Blue T with "The three best things in life..." (Center)
  3. Red T with "Kept You Waiting huh?" (left)
All these three Ts were only RM 50 for 3 Ts!

GG Tag! I am Serena Van Der Woodsen

Oh My... I can't believe I am ... and I have been ranting on how much I am looking for her!

Shopping for Clothes for CNY

Ok.. Last day of classes for now and was suppose to have a group meeting, but our group... well we decided to pass up on the meeting and you know what?? We vowed that after the break, we are going to step up a notch and focus focus on the tasks ahead of us!

Since there was nothing on.. Well the next thing to worry about was CLOTHES!

I need new clothes for not just CNY, but for the year! I have a lot of old clothes that I am dying to throw out or donate to charity and my bro doesn't like hand-me-downs, so I guess that's pretty obvious since my sizes of clothins are larger.

So, Alice, Sherman, Shermaine, Karmen & yours truely, went to One Utama to kick off our day of shopping and relaxation!

Shermaine bought a pretty nice leather Nike messenger laptop bag, Karmen and Alice bought themselves a nice Bro's water container which was on a sale of RM10 from the regular RM15.90. Worth it!

We walked walked walked and over dinner @ the Teh Tarik Place, gossip and talk about the holidays and "bitching" about people.. something that all humans enjoy doing. Gossip, gossip and more juicy gossip!

After the quick bite, we went straight to Kitschen, where I saw this really nice pair of Cargo white cream shorts! Perfect and it has DannyBoy style written all over it!

But! After I tried it out, Shermain noticed that the back pockets were huge! Imagine your wallet moving and juggling all over the back while you are walking! It would make your rear end look like it is flubbering, not like it already is anyways! It was only Rm 49.90 plus that is before 10% discount! Argh! big fat pockets! So I ended up didn't buy it cause of the too big a size pockets!

Well.. my objective was to purchase at least 2 new shirts or tee with one of them being Red. But to no avail I couldn't buy a decent one. The closes one was a Jersey T in TopMen, But the Red well.. though it was my favourite colour,but as Shermaine pointed out, it was not as good as a grey one or a black one, and Karmen wanted to buy one for her Bf, so I don't wanna get one where I know someone will have the same shirt as I do! Well, don't worry Karmen! I think the red jersey T from TopMen would fit your Bf really well! Pity they didn't have an XL for me for the Black one or the Grey. Deng it!

Well I am now at a studio, chillaxing as my fellow band members and I await the previous and already done occupents of the studio to pack up!

TTYL! Time to lock myself and my bandies up in the room and create some funky music!

P.s I must apologize for the lack of photoes lately. My camera has been loaned to my brother who needs to use it...

Of assignments and holidays

Well its only been the 3rd week of class and it seems that the IAA69s and the 70s seems to be alright, but finding common ground is still in progress.

Assignment wise, group allocations has been chosen by the lecturers, that means that we have a mix of people in our groups. It is a good change I guess.. to know more about our new classmates, see if they can work. I am quite picky on group members. But so far, we haven't encountered any problems or road bumps as of yet.

As of holidays, the Chinese New Year holidays are just around the corner. The first stop for me is on the first day of Chinese New Year, I'll be heading to my Mum's home town in Pahang, Temelor for 3 nights.

It will be my first stop for Ang Pow collection :D

After coming back then I will be heading to my Dad's side of the family's family gathering. SS2, where we have the usual relatives gathering, eating my grandma's popiah, and other Chinese delicacies that my grandma is famous for in our circle of family.

I will be taking some pictures on my travels and feasting for CNY. OH Yea! My family is also making an outstation travel, ust us four, my dad, mum, my brother and I. We haven't had a proper holiday together after our trip to Phuket and Phi Phi Island has been cancelled since Thailand's political controversies and unsettleness makes my parents postpone the trip!

Darn. I miss my friends reunion in Phuket!

Thats all for now I guess. Am in my break for Sales Promotion Lecture . Killing time, Killing time.

My Love Left On A Saturday by Michael Perez

My Love Left On A Saturday
My belt loosens slowly.
Reminders of you stay fresh
in murky ponds of suffocating tadpoles.
Wake me in the morning,
when the sun shines again.
It's frightening when all I know
falls apart.
And all I know is you.
Hunger squeezes me tighter.
My soul sags with exhaustion.
Ashtrays fill with sleepless nights.
Weeping intensifies my anxiety.
Can tomorrow come without you...
here today?
The cheap chandelier falls on my face.
The rose filled lamp explodes in my hands.
Pain is unrecognizable.
All I knew was you.
My love.

Melamine outbreak in China and now Peanut Butter???

Man I thought Melamine was bad enough that it restricts us from eating certain foods. But now one of my favourite food, Peanut Butter can't be eaten??? NNNOOOOOOOO!!!!!

Maybe I should contain my insanity for now first.. I am sure its not that bad...

So for now people.. refrain from peanut butter until further notice!

Here is the new's article from MSN. Click here.


Hey all.

I am getting by each day always thinking about how I should move on from my past. my love, and turn over a new page. Every time I seem to try to turn a new page, it always seems to be putting my pen down and ripping away the page of life and starting a new page again. Always on the same place.

It has been tough yes. Life is always about challenges, learning something new and when '$***' hits the fan, you should always learn from your mistakes and it will either make you stronger or make you hit the ground hard.

My church has started a series of missions where missionaries are invited to speak to us and inspire us to do God's work.

Am I fulfilling my mission? I have just started the new year and I am working on my mission for the year. I hope that I am strong willed to find my missions accomplished by the end of the year.

Jason Mraz Concert on March 4th people!!!

I don't know about you but myself and my bro is going!!! Any one else going?

I know that Rihanna's one is in Feb. I am not going cause the tickets are more pricey for good standings and for me I prefer to be in the front not some crap seats at the back or behind the speakers or where the singer looks like an ant!

I was trying to have a pleasant day today. I am sure Torrie would have wanted that. For me to have a happy day. 

I remember this date far too well in my mind, as if it was just yesterday. 

I know I should move on. It is not easy and I am trying. For those who have lost someone dear to their hearts they would understand.

Today went ok. Like any normal college day. 

Group meeting for Media, Culture and Society went better than I thought it would. Hopefully things will be better. 

Went to the driving range to spend some time with dad, and it helped de-stress my thoughts and forget about the day. 

Torrie.. if you can hear me from the heavens above. I just want to say, that you have been the best thing that has happened to me and I will always love you. 


Monday, January 12, 2009

13th Jan.. I remember when I said I love you.

I remember those hazel brown eyes,

I remember the smile that took away my breath.

I remember how your long blonde hair brushes over your face.

I remember the joy and happiness when we opened our Christmas presents. 

I remember the night we just sat on the roof of your house, cuddling in a blanket staring into the sky.

I remember our songs.

I remember the day we walked on the beach in the morning.

I remember our first date. 

I remember the first time I said I love you, and the joy that was indescribable and the best moment of my life when you said I Love You back. 

I remember our trip just you and me to Phuket

I love the way you look back at me and give a smile.

I love your laugh when I say something funny or do something unintentionally.

I love your scent

I miss hugging you so tightly like I would never let you go.

I miss holding your hand

I miss touching those lips

I miss touching your face

I miss your touch

I miss sending Christmas cards and Valentine's chocolate to our friends. 

I miss cooking your favorite meal

I miss the sound of your voice

I miss You. 

I thank you for your love that you have given me for the many years we have been together. You showed me that a perfect angel and someone who I can never dream of having, who can love an imperfect person like me. 

Torrie, I love you.

Gossip Girl!

Hey guys! I have been on a gossip girl marathon and it took me 2 days of night to finish the first season! Have been sleeping at 3-4 a.m in the morn. This show officially has topped my list and it is the best TV show I have seen and I am a big big fan! 

The reason why I love this particular TV series is cause it was how I grew up as well when I was staying in New York, during my teens, in a private high school with rich rich snobbish students and also a small portion of them are also nice and humble and people who parties a lot and definitely lots and lots of gossip and scandals! 

The movie really made me reminisce on my days when I was there. I miss NYC! 

Blake Lively is the most beautiful women in the world! In my books that is! She is so flamboyant, happy, has the smile that takes your breath away and many other countless things about her that I love so much! 

Blake Lively stars as Serena Van der Woodsen in Gossip Girl

Well see on the TV show.. Serena (Blake Lively) has a relationship with Dan Humphrey (Penn Badgley) and do so in real life as well.

As for me... I am looking for my Blake Lively, my Serena.

Where is she?

My 2009 New Year's Resolution

  1. Tame the bulge! - I know I know.. it is probably on everybody's resolution every year, but for me I really should! 

  2. Save money!! - For me I am most of the time an impulse consumer, and sometimes I spend without thinking of the budget I set aside.. so Save MONEY!

  3. To be more confident, focused and know what I want.

  4. Explore more about myself & learn something new. For me,the things that I love to do on my own is cooking and exploring enw recipies and ideas, playing and listening to music, watching movies and my favourite soap-operas 90210, Heroes and Gossip Girls! 

  5. Explore and broaden my music playing genre.

    Most of my friends know that I listen to all kinds of music and always exploring new music to listen to all the time! Yes.. most of you also know that I play the guitar and the violin. I play lots of blues and guitar influence is John Mayer, Incubus and other artist. So, I am going to explore into other music genre's to increase my playing knowledge. I am done with Blues, am going to kick the year of by starting with Rock!  

  6. Get more organized and be more responsible in my life.

Popcorn coin bank!

I got my Christmas present from Chloe today ;D 

I got this! 
Its a Robot Popcorn coin bank! So Cute! Haha! Thx Chloe! 

I just find it really weird that it has this at the rear end of the robot. 

"It's so delicious"

Hmm.. I don't want to think what it means XD ...

I decided to keep 'Popcorn' in it's packaging. I wanna protect it from dust and stuff. Plus it is sentimentary value! :D

Malaysian bus transportation system is really messed up!

So it's the first day back to semester 3 of college.. deng .. time passes by so fast during Christmas and New Years. 

I decided that since I have classes mostly in the afternoon, I decided to try out taking the bus to college. I have never taken the bus to college, but I have going home, since I'm not chasing time after finishing classes, just worried about how packed the bus can be.

So, I got my mum to drop me off at One U. Gosh!  I love One Utama when it is not packed! So I decided to walk around for awhile then I notice this... (see pict below) 

I didn't notice the Haagen Dazs so distinctively, but it suddenly made me stopped in my path with my jaws dropped and I started to reminis my time at Tenji Jap Buffet (The one I have been ranting on about ;p) yeating 5-6 scops of lushes Haagen Dazs ice-cream. Yummmmmm....

After that one minute pause. I went straight to the bus stop. 

I waited there for over 45 mins waiting for U82 BUS! I mean ... it is one of the most important buses that stops at major places in KL and through out PJ! And most importantly it stops at my college! 

I wasn't the only one who was so darn pissed of! There were a whole load of other people who were there, and 2 elderly Chinese women who are from CHina, asked me why it is taking so long, and they said that they have waited over an hour already. 

I was like.. yea... that's the Malaysian Bus transport system for you! 

That didn't piss me as much as seeing THREE U82 BUSES at the bus stop and the bus drivers went off for God knows doing what. Gees... 

it was coming to 2:40 p.m and I was like, "Screw the bus!" In my head of course.

I called my mum instead to drop me off. 

Darn buses...

But I am going to try the buses again 2mr ... and this time with pictures. 

Tenji Part 2!

As promissed Tenji Part 2 photos and review by fellow Epicurean SK! Click here.
It is part of a 3 post series!

Movie Review: How To Lose Friends & Alienate People

Genre: Comedy
Starring: Simon Pegg, Megan Fox, Kirsten Dunst, Danny Huston, Gillian Anderson, Max  Minghella, Jeff Bridges
Director: Robert B. Weide

Sidney is a disillusioned person who both adores and despises the world of celebrity, fame, glitz and the glamour. His magazine, Post Modern Review, Makes fun at the media obsessed stars and bucks trends, and so when Young is offered a job at the diametrically opposed conservative New York based Sharps magazine its something of a shock! It seems Sharps editor Clayton Harding is amused by Young's disruption of a post-BAFTA party with a pig posing as Babe. Thus begins Sidney's descent into success - his gradual move from derided outsider to confidante of starlet Sophie Maes - and a love affair with colleague Alison Olsen, that will either make him or break him.

Official synopsis taken from IMDB

DannyBoy's Review

Absolutely brilliant movie! Simon Pegg's portrayal of Sidney Young is just so fantastic, and the perfect British actor to portray a funny, arrogant Sidney which is perfect, as his character in the movie is a newbie into the media world. 

The storyline is great as it can be related to real life as it shows how someone's dreams can be fulfilled if you just do your best and someone times you meet those people who are just a nuisance and always looking to piss you off, but as you persevere you can go higher and be more successful than other people. And also that you someones get people who are willing to help you in the workplace to help you fit in. 

The one of the biggest lessons that I can take away from  this movie is that when you have an idea you have to stand firm and believe in your own idea in order to get your idea across and make people understand your idea.. or else it will be ignored or think of as a useless idea, but if they did thought that, then don't take it too much but take it as an encouragement and motivation to do better and analyse what went wrong and this will ultimately make you a stronger and better person.

My rating? 

7.5 /10 

Its a fantastic and brilliant movie! Hilarious! 

Here is the trailer! url.

3rd Semester... am I looking forward to it?

Wow I must say that my 3 weeks of holiday passed by fast. Christmas was fast and the New Year celebrations flew fast. And class starts tomorrow! 

I don't know if I should look forward to the new semester. I mean sure I am looking forward with the subjects. It's just that we are joining with the IAA69 bunch. The college decided to join up the IAA69 and my class, IAA70. So from our small and nice clas of 12, will be come 20+. I do not look forward to it cause the 69s are a totally different group of people. Not so cheerful, the dull, act cool bunch, the clubbing bunch, silent, and bored look
ing group and most of them smoke (not to say I have any quams of them, but it seems like those with the characteristics listed always seems to be smokers! ). 

I really don't care cause I have got 1 more year left before going to my internship and then to RMIT. So I just have to focus on my studies and my life outside of college. 

Of course you will probably say that I shouldn't look on the surface of the people at IAA69, I mean we have seen them before and we IAA70 do not fancy them as well. 

Here is my timetable for the semester.

Well.. this sem compared to the previous is that I only have one morning lecture, Sales Promotion. The downside is that this semester has 3 days that finishes at 6 p.m. It will be really jam for those who does not stay in PJ. Another downside is that Thursday I have worship practice so technically I have a shorter time in between to rest, dinner, take a shower and go through the songs again before the practice. 

I am glad that this college always have Friday off. :D 

Its a new semester and I am going to take it by it's 'horns'

Ok. I promiss my next post is my New Year's Resolutions.

Woah! Yesterday I went with Tenji Buffet again! The first time I went was Christmas Eve which I also dotted down my epicurean's review at this post, Tenji Japanese buffet better than Jogoya!

The Entourage that came on friday were:
Sarah, Esther, Amanda, Alison, Liang, Me, John (my brother) & Grace

Btw... If you guys wanna go and makan at Tenji, you have to book at least 4 days in advance. Friday the place was packed! Full! They didn't even allow walk-in! 

Here is the link to Sarah's Part 1 post on Tenji! As she was the photographer for the afternoon and her turn to do an epicurean's review! 

Overall the food was great! But my first time was better, there were some dishes that were there when I first went on Christmas Eve but wasn't there yesterday! :( 

Overall everyone enjoyed it! Even Liang is planning to bring his mum to eat there! 

Btw.. Thks to my fellow epicurean SK, who helped me co-0rganize the lunch!
