Was looking around for the KAWS dissected and/or KAWS Companion and I saw a seller in Singapore.
I'm definitely not gonna buy this.
Just thought of sharing with you readers.
It's life-size and these costs like roughly 2800 SGD each.
There are the smaller versions though.
They do cost a bomb too and I have no plans to get them.
KAWS X stuffs are always extremely expensive. Highly priced valuables: That is what a lot of people consider them to be including yours truly. Lol.
Maybe, maybe, maybe.....
Perhaps I could get a X KAWS X related item. Lol :p

I'm at an all-time low right now. Just plain laziness. :p
Been talking about going for driving lessons since ages but to no avail till this second.
Gonna make myself learn driving by this week.
I paused my driving several months ago due to training and lack of time.
Right now my video editing freelance work is still waiting to be rendered and handed to my boss.
And FYP [Final Year Project] has sort of started due to lack of time once again.
*Start early and finish without rushing.
Do you ever wonder which expertise you're gonna be when it's time to work?
I mean, I for once am always thinking of some far-fetched "quick-fix" idea that probably won't work out.
The only thing which I know I'm good at is in music but to what extent?
I'm good on piano. Although I didn't take my Grade 8 practical back in 2005 I had already prepared 2 of the 3 songs I was supposed to play and practised part of the scales.
I don't look at it as a pity because I'm contented and satisfied that I in turn explored pop music. Be it mandopop, Rnb, hip-hop or a combination of the mentioned genres.
I really don't wanna write stuffs in here like "I must work harder this time round, I must put in double the effort, I mustn't give up at this point in time etc. etc.". ~~~ You know what I mean.....
Talk is cheap, without action nothing can come to fruition.
It's time to change my method for composing. I know what to do but it'll take some time to get used to it. One of these days ~ I'm working for a breakthrough in my music.
Cousins's Wedding Day @ the Furama Hotel.
Above: [Left] My brother getting all funked-up. lol [Right]My nephew, Prince"Jordan"II.
He's only a year old plus.
Left: My dad and grandpa.
Michell with my family, bro took it for us.
Below: Bride and Groom...
Left: Mom, cousins, aunt and niece.
Left: Grandma, aunt and mom. :p
~Oh yes btw something to add in here.
Some people just do not change even after months of not meeting each other, I'm referring to a person whom I know. [Neither from VS/OB nor from Poly]
Why be jealous of me? Afterall, it's just a composing stint that I've got right?
I do understand why though, it's because you have low self esteem, always bragging till the cows come home.
And the weirdest part is you don't brag about yourself. Instead, you brag about your previous friends who I don't think keep in contact with you any longer. I mean, you've got nothing to brag about yourself, then don't brag at all and make me endure talks that are not related between us.
Do whatever you like, I'm through hanging out with you.

Lol I just love this. :D Thought of sharing with you guys the original video from his channel itself.
Warning: The "F" word comes out more than 30 times from his mouth. lol
And this is when he didn't get what he wanted at White Castle's drive-through. :p

iPod Nano 5G is really da bomb!
And the integrated video camera just makes it even more worthwhile. :)
Have been playing around with this baby for the past few days.
I have to say it's pretty awesome and don't underestimate its ability due to its size. :p

iPod Nano 5g coming my way! :D
Went to the Apple store earlier, told there were no stocks for the black, purple and blue version. I'm eyeing the black one. It's phat.
Finally, something I'm looking forward to catch in the movies!
'This Is It' Theatrical Trailer @ Yahoo! Video
While on the way back, some girl actually came up to me and Sam and I was wondering if she was asking for something....until, I recognised that face. It was Lydia! My art friend back in secondary school. We used to hang out in a clique which I've dispersed from. lol
I remember the times we went for KTV sessions at Kbox and discovering my "talent" in singing, as Lydia put it earlier hahaha. :p
We walked to the interchange, chatted till her bus arrived and I headed off in the Apple store direction.
I watched "9" along with Sam and Khai earlier today after meeting my boss [work and work, tired].
It was an average movie, or probably because I was eating London Fish n Chips [the authentic way, they come in a paper bag] in the theatre and didn't know which to focus on [LOL].
It's co-produced by Tim Burton, who brought us films like "Nightmare Before Christmas" and "Corpse's Bride" using stop-motion footages. However, "9" is fully based on 3D animation if I'm not mistaken.
Overall, his shows are always dark so the same feeling will be there. If you've watched his previous films, you'll know what I mean. His films are always featuring new and profound characters, sometimes simple and effective. Even the look of the characters are somewhat dark but camouflaged by various features on the face.
On the whole, I would recommend "9" :)
ps. However, don't point the finger at me if it sucked for you. :p
His films are really just, different.

My First Bearbrick Baby 3rd Edition [Black & Silver]
Came back yesterday from malaysialand.
Met up with Zac and Miaoru today, sold Zac a dynamic microphone lol.
And feel so bad for making them come down all the way from CityHall.
Reason was I decided to make a call to Kelvin just in case and was told my Bearbrick hasn't been sent to Jurong Point. :x
And the 3 of us took a cab down near to PS.
Went down to Plaza Singapura to collect this baby, literally. :D
And here it is, finally! "My First Bearbrick Baby 3rd Edition by Chiaki"
Chiaki's the actress in KillBill. lol
The name of this Bearbrick is also meshed together in the Bearbrick.
When you shake it, the matching-colourway balls rattles and sounds like a baby's rattle. :)
Bye I'm off to malaysialand again later on. Be back soon. :)

I know I know, I've missed the order, let alone the pre-order for the Billie Jean Michael Jackson from Hot Toys BY A LONG SHOT, a very long one. Lol. I want it so badly and luckily, although I know it's just not the same, Hot Toys is gonna release a Thriller version of Michael Jackson in about 2 months time.
Watched "Living With Michael Jackson", a documentary by Martin Bashir [mf: dirty hyprocrite] for the 5th time since 2003.
I really truly hate this guy down to the Earth's core. Can someone just shoot his brains out?
MJ trusted him so much just because he did an interview with Princess Diana but he had this in him all along: "callous self-interest masked as sympathy".
He made people believed Michael was a weird person, making his life worse.
And I know I'm bitching, but really people, if you go on to say MJ is a weird fella and a sicko, do some research online, watch the interviews, watch the home-videos, watch the way he lived his life, you'll agree with me that he's a 100% innocent.
How can people say things that are so biased when they didn't even care or took the time to watch just several videos? I'm not gonna spoon-feed you by adding all the links that I have but there are photos and many videos that are evidences that he's neither guilty nor a weird guy.
Sorry for the very 1st swear word in here but I couldn't care less.

Meet Sharin Foo of The Raveonettes. She has the same surname as me! Lol.
She has been on bass, guitar and vocals along with Sune Rose Wagner who's on guitar, instruments and vocals. Band was formed in 2001. Released 3 studio albums so far and an upcoming one this 6th October titled "In and Out of Control".
Sharin's 1/4 Chinese so we probably have the same ancestors, that means we COULD be relatives, since the surname "Foo" is hard to come across. Once a person's surname is "Foo", he's bound to be of Hainanese descend. Unlike other Hainanese surnames like "Lee" which can be Hakka or whatever. Hainan Island is separated from the mainland. My grandfather hailed from Hainan Island and I'm cool about it. Hainan "Dao" is China's Hawaii afterall. Lol.

Relatives had steamboat at my house earlier on.
Marcus and Beishan came in the afternoon and just went home an hour ago. lol
Alas! Finished 4 recordings in a day! First time recording into my MacBook. Sayonara to my PC desktop, no more recordings in Cubase for the time being. :)
Anyway, I'm still thinking of you MJ, your superb music will really really lives on in my heart and soul forever...forever.
Since his passing, I dare not watch his Moonwalker music movie. I'll probably break down if I do so since I've watched that since I was a young kid, age 4. My favourite part was the part set to "Speed Demon", in which he disguised himself as a rabbit named Spike. :D
I have been inspired, since months ago and once again, to the max.
[edit: done watching Moonwalker for the 30th time since I was kid? Didn't cry, although it made me really sad]
Posted by BearBrickER at 11:54 PM Whoa, long day ahead. Gonna have Beishan over to record for BY2 demo, including Marcus's.
And thanking Marcus or Beishan in advance for buying and bringing over a foot-long Subway for me! :D lol
Relatives from my dad's side at night for dinner at my place. :)
Am waiting anxiously for my Be@rbrick B@by 3rd Edition. :x
Hurry up with the release mannn or else my Bearbrick glass cabinet won't be fully utilised!
