I am now lying on my bed in a hotel on george st, sydney, waiting for
my cousin to wake up to do some touristy stuff. And this is the first
post using mail to blog, i think with this newly discovered feature,
my blog will be updated more frequently!

Day off








"He Wears It" is the official name of this set of brilliant Star War characters in casual clothes, but i made a new title "Day Off" instead, i think it suits the theme more.

 I think Stormtrooper in Thom Browne and Scout Trooper in Viktor & Rolf captured the brand's style the most. but i like the Darth Vader in Band of Outsiders and Jango Fett in Commer Des Garcons the most.

looking back at some old photos, i realised how much things have changed in the past 4.x years.

here i am studying for my last exam at uq *fingers crossed*, i would never have thought this is how i am going to end my bachelor when i started my first day. i thought i would have changed into law and arts and on a steady road to become a lawyer, mean time have some crazy uni life and settle down for the last two years or so.


had half a year of crazy party, uni life, then i got bored and tired. slowly drifted away from the white community and gained a rather large group of asian friends. about this time, glad i went on msn in the morning one day and eventually formed "Sleeping Soda" with a few like minded. had some ups and down with the ladies, and lost some friends during the course as well.

confirmed for a fact that i am considered one of the weird one amongst my friends, but thats fine. afterall, what i have learnt from these 4 years or so of uni and adulthood is the fact that it didn't teach
me enough to tell me what i want to be, but taught me more than enough to shape me what i am now.

the point of this post?

nothing, looking at photos just triggered many things that have been long forgotten and after digesting it, i need a place to dump it down.

ps: to Agnes over at hong kong, i saw some photos of us when we first met a few years ago, can't believe you are still sleeping, it's been 4 months, i haven't seen you since my birthday. hurry up and wake up, we are all waiting!

You are not a friend of mine

you are not a friend of mine
cause you're way more than that
we've walked through the past
and we'll travel till the end
until the very end

you are not a friend of mine
you are one of a kind
forgive my lack of lines
but words cannot describer
how i need you in my life

whenever you're lonely
you can count on me
and rest upon my shoulder
whenever you need me
all you need is to call
and i'll be there
anywhere in the world

"and...to be continue"

The Rivival

Last sunday i hit up the most genuine Fixed Gear Shop in Brisbane, if not Australia - GEAR and bought myself a copy of "The Rivival".

started by two fixed gear enthusiast Wayne Morhart and Tom Briggs from Vancouver, and collaborating riders from all over North America, they present the most in depth and beautiful fixed gear film.

The Revival - DVD Teaser from Corey MacGregor on Vimeo.

recruited riders such as the pioneer of the new Fixed Trick 700cmx scene - Tyler Johnson of ZLOG, Prolly of Prolly is not Probably, Tom Mosher, Torey Thornton of Wrawh and GRIMES and off course the most amazing dude on the Fixed Trick - Ed "Wonka" LaForte.

after watching it with my fixie partner Kelvin, we both ended with a fire burning inside us, wanting to jump on our bike and start thrashing on the streets and jumping over 7 stairs and on top of a water fountain. but sadly, when we cleared our mind, the fact that it's 12:30 am and probably only around 12 degree outside, we realised we can only jump over a can of coke and barely go up a hill. FML

ps: while i was at gear, i was deciding whether to get the rivival or the film by the GRIMES crew "Death Pedal 2". As the owner Erik can obviously tell by my face impression that i was having a hard time choosing which one to get, he kindly helped me by telling me that "they are both pretty good films about tricks on fixed". thanks for helping Erik.
