Level up

I thought nothing of the laughing mannequins I saw in boutiques. It turned out to be a representation of Yue Minjun, a Chinese artist. The laughing face is modeled after himself.

n79 review

I’ve just struck off another item on the wishlist. And n79 so happen to match all points I listed in the phone item. Looks like I’m a few years ahead of technology when I made that wish. The next phone I’d like to see will be a touch phone, but with a morphable surface so that it will jut “keys” out on areas that can be pressed, creating a tactile effect, as though there were keys. Crazy? Maybe.

Having set up and customized my phone for a day, here’s my perception of the phone.

I’ve got it

Got this in the mail. At first I thought it was the bill again. :(


In no time it became this…

Uncertainty vs Fear

The Falling Man

Fear is a result of uncertainty. Under certain circumstances, there is no more fear. (no pun intended)

Note 1: What’s with fear recently…

Courage vs Fear

“Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the judgement that something else is more important than fear.” – Ambrose Redmoon

Note 1: Youtube blocks original MTV :( where else to link?

Note 2: What’s with rain falling on windows…

Gift wrapping

I’m not much of a gift wrapper, especially compared with the women who work at our shop. But I was the only one available the day a customer wanted a gift wrapped for his mother.

“Sorry,” I said, handing him a box covered with wrinkled, oddly taped paper. “It’s wrapped, but it sure looks like a guy did it.”

“Great,” he said happily. “Now my mum will think I did it myself.”

This was extracted from a recent copy of Reader’s Digest. Meant to humor, it struck me elsewhere instead.

What are your thoughts?
