Band Name

Believe it or not, i am in a band. Despite how good we are, i think we are a pretty awesome team of trio+1. We are temporarily call the 3:43 from the early period and after 4.X years...we are still using this name. Not that we need a name to do any publishing or anything, but having a meaningful name for everyone in the band should be a mission. Especially before our lovely vocal moves to Melbourne next month. SO! so far, the names we have come up are:

1. The Living Room - cause we play in the living room, but too much like copying the living end
2. Our Duvet - Deena and Josh thought of it, didn't really click with me at the start, and still doesn't really...sorry guys...
3. the surname of the trio - Lynch + Man + So = Lynmanso, Malynso, Mansolyn, Somanlyn, Solyman
4. the first name of the trio - Deena + Josh + Quinton = Deejoquin, Jodeequin, Quindeejo....

we...have approximately a month to think of a name...any suggestions?

Shoes and Purchase

Finding a pair of shoes is very difficult. Off course, there are options like chucks and vans and stan smiths which can take you anywhere, but there are just times (or alot of times) you just want to put on something more classy, luxurious and make your feet happy. After all, they take you everywhere, right?
When it comes to luxurious and classy in mens' shoes, there is a name that stands out from the crowd floating on the the internet: Mr. Hare from the UK. Mr Hare himself has a very clear image in mind when he started the company in 2008, to make some quality mens shoes that can take you everywhere, but looking like a real gentlemen. Only after 2 collection, Mr. Hare has captured the internet, and my heart. I simply wants every single pair of shoes that he has designed (except the boots...they don't do it for me...).

Spring/Summer 2010: Hot Steppers

Autumn/Winter 2009: Purest Form

just by looking at the styling shots and i'm in love...

amongst the collections, Mr.Wolfe, Mr. Orwell, Mr. Fitzgerald from 2009, Fela, Capote, King Tubby and Jerry Lee of 2010 collection are my favourite (not too many right?)

yet reality check:
1. they don't stock them anywhere in Australia, let alone Brisbane
2. they are way too expensive for me, especially when it'll be too overdress most of the time if i wear it in Brisbane.
so i guess they can wait until i move to Melbourne, or Japan, or back to HK. Either way i would buy a pair for myself.

SO! that does not mean i cannot treat myself with a little gift despite the fact i am at the edge of bankruptcy.

What's better to spot nearly 50% off and it's something you'd had your eyes on and it's in your size? not much~

Vanishing Elephance Suede Desert Boot from 2009 collection

only $150AU, i couldn't let it pass...first purchase of 2010.

01 January 2010


First day of another decade, and I spent my day at home doing nothing. I guess in a way that is a nice way to spend the first day (also because many places are closed?). Spending the first NYE in Brisbane made me realise something, I don't care about celebrations at all. Yes it would be nice if I am doing something spectacular with millions of people, but, after the 10 seconds of excitement, it comes back to the same. I think only Tokyo, London, New York, Paris and some other major cities can make me eager to spend the last 10 seconds of the year on the street with other strangers, so unless I am spending NYE at any other places, I don't think I can be "excited". Happy yes, but not excited.

Happy New Year.
Happy Twenty Ten.
Happy Two Thousand and Ten.
