Things that i got from HK

I bought nothing much from Hong Kong...only 2 items. A MacBook Pro and a Hermès Marly bracelet. I sold my old laptop before i bought a new one so i fork out only half the price. The bracelet was actually for my wife. I bought the Hermès Rivale bracelet for her but she didn't like it so i exchanged the Marly for myself. Anyway, i have been wanting a bracelet for so long...

Personal update

Sorry to my readers. It had been a busy month for me...tied up with work and everything else. I hope everyone had a happy Christmas!


I will be going to London the next month. It will be for work and an exhibition. I will be staying there at least 3 weeks...and i wonder if it is good or bad news. It will be my first time in London but i have already heard about the freezing temperatures there. I do have some blazers and jackets but i am wondering if it is enough. Perhaps i need a thicker coat - just another reason for shopping.

Anyway, i have been shopping "smartly"...i stopped buying expensive clothes or items that i seldom wear or use. H&M, Zara and shops like these are the places that i shop now. There is no need for me to wear a fancy shirt to work. I just need "normal" working shirts so those are the good places.

I just got back from HK 2 weeks ago and i bought only a Hermes bracelet and a Macbook Pro...i will post some pictures soon...

Vimeo - My preference over Youtube

Vimeo is a video-centric social network site which launched in November 2004. Vimeo is more like a video-sharing website but it allows only user-created videos. Vimeo has gained a reputation for catering to a high end, artistic crowd because of its higher bitrate, resolution, and relative HD support. They are the first video-sharing site to support consumer HD back in 2007 and this is the reason why you see Youtube supporting HD now. Approximately 15% of all uploaded videos in Vimeo are in HD.


This is the sports that i play

New purchase! Balenciaga

This is the thing that i have been waiting for. The Balenciaga leather weekend bag. I collected it at the post office instead of waiting for it to be delivered. I guess i was really anxious to see it...Furthermore, weekend is here and it will only be delivered next week.

Thanks to YoYo for helping me with the purchase! He's such a nice guy and i certainly owe him this favour and also a couple of dollars (because we miscalculated the charges...hehe).

I love this bag. The design is good, with 2 large pockets at the front and another compartment at the back. You can keep all your mobile phones, music player, wallet and etc in the front pockets while keep the rest of the stuff such as a cardigan in the main compartment. This bag is extremely roomy and it is really good for travel. You can also stash your important items such as passport inside the zip compartment.

However, i find that this bag might be too big for me and i may not be able to use it often. Maybe i should sell it... ;) what do you think? If anyone is interested, please contact me...hahaha
