*this is the retro version, sourced from kicksonfire.com; now it costs a freaking 145~155USD!
The soles lasted me a good year before wore them out to the point of busting the exposed air max cushion...
Like my poor shoes, my hoop dreams did not live to see the new millenium *i'm vertically challenged okie..., at least by the game's standard x(* & so my kicks collection has been drastically downsized & obsoleted since.
Now i'm more into comfy kicks for getting around... something like what the SB lineup embodies ~ the cool factor + cutting edge technology... i dig =)
I'm no skateboarder but this one really blows me away...
the unorthodox styling takes a little getting used to on the eyes, but it's really more like an artpiece... it's got intricate detailing unique to each side... when you own a masterpiece like this, you'll have 2nd thoughts about wearing it to go out... But i've got my eyes set on this... ~ after all my current solo pair of kicks is nearing it's lifespan... morphed from a squeeky clean white to kurap-yellowish color

A great lad with impressive personality & unique outlook on life. With all the postive aura that he exudes, he's always a great guy to hang out with... having genuine & positive friends will make a difference especially when you're caught up in the midst of mid-life crisis (i.e frustrations at work, stagnant career, stagnant relationships) like me.. that includes you too mr sexylips...
I'm starting to sound like a senior citizen already... yeap, ehon call's me uncle =D
Man, i should start to hang out more with friends not older than 22 years old, to retard my mental aging process.
Sometime in the middle of the week, had also managed to squeeze in a happy hour time slot with jenbebe & co. at one of the latest happening night spot in town, The Core. At 7pm on a wednesday night?? Not much going on, but those poor tax friends on mine just need to unwind after a stressful day's work. Hang on in there guys, peak season's going to be over soon! Of all the people, i've also bumped into a girl who was accidentally involved in my infamous puking fiesta at barzing from years ago... *paiseh*paiseh* Had a good exchange of chit-chats, & i hope that she will no longer address me as the guy who once puked on her.... =p

A comical introduction to the D1GP. An excerpt from a Hot Version VCD i've had for quite a while, but never really made out much of it coz it's purely in japanese with chinese subs only. Stumbled upon this splendidly translated version on youtube. Damn funny that ending tag, "Although this car is 100% street legal, it won't score us any chicks" ~ that, i could definitely relate to. & oh yeah, to participate in the Street Legal D1GP, you car needs to have a functioning car audio system too. Now what the heck has an audio system got to do with motorsports??

~ a night view of Toa Payoh skyline from the 10th floor of a HDB flat;
~ & its day time equivalent shot;
Settings: ISO 80, aperture ~ F7.0, shutter speed ~ 1/180 without flash
Okies, the camera was in auto mode all along. I'm still a noob at this; just experimenting & trying to figure out the suitable settings to use when taking shots. It's a good thing that its got shot settings recall mode for the photos taken. *All photos of this trip was taken using a point-and-shoot Samsung L100 digicam. What's next ~ investing in a entry level dSLR? =D

with aunts, cousins & chek kong
catching up with some x-colleagues at Bugis Junction
2nd consecutive Japanese feast for the night ~ with Julian, Lester, Eugene & co.
It's become a mini Kuchingnites gathering in Singapore. All of us have worked for the same company at one time or another, & now they're (ones that left) also working in the same company over there. How ironic... Nevertheless, we had a great yum-cha session =)
Ah kong too, dropped by just to say hi, on the way home ~ good to see you, buddy!
*as usual, he insists on having his Tu Shen request ~ censored la*
3rd appointment of the night ~ September! An ex-ex-colleague of mine during my Agilent internship days from nearly half-a-decade ago. Great to catch up with you again. Hey, you haven't changed at all! =)
Along with 2 expatriate friends, Michiko & Asami, one of whom happens to be a freelance writer. Cool =)
It's been nice meeting you guys, though it was quite a brief meet up at McD, before we had to run after the last train near midnight to make it home. Ha, that was quite an experience ~ "It's 11:45pm, you can start running to the MRT station, coz the last train will depart in 2 minutes time". Well, I did made it back to my aunt's place in approximately 21 minutes =p
Changi's new T3 ~ so squeky clean & green
Sis had to leave a day earlier...
Toa Payoh, Lorong 1 Chicken Rice ~ even the neighborhood kopitiam is packed to the brim well past lunch hour. There is no place to dine without having to queue up, except at home lar.
my cousin, Donald's ride. I dig that aggressive & muscular look. Not a WRX, just 1.6 AWD variant though, but sharing that same boxer layout. Quite a fuel guzzler that returns 8 - 9 km to the litre. The real deal WRX STi would definitely be one heck of a drinker!
@ Suntec City
Yup, I've been an uncle for quite awhile now =p
Debra & Marissa ~ ^_^
& Bree, the most recent addition =)
That about wraps up my trip for this time round ~ it's been a great one! =)
