Gucci addiction

Fashion? lifestyle ? or just want to show off on your status ? well I alway ask myself this question when I am gonna puchase my Gucci’s before or rather LAST TIME, till date.. I have not purchase any designer stuff anymore. I have sworn off designer stuff for good until I am earning well over $10k a month, till then I wont buy anything that cost or has a celebrity endorsing it because I know it will be going into their pockets. My ultimate goal this year is to get my 4 room apartment in which will cost me nearly half a million, and its not any pretty landed property, but a regular HDB yes.. its that bad.. housing in Singapore is not cheap as it looks. But this investment will be my best bet for the future of my family. The house and apartment in Malaysia shall be secondary investment, actually selling the Port Diskson apartment to fund this Singapore one. (Anyone thinking of buying a aparment in PD do let me know, I have a 3 room fully furnished apartment for sale.
 
as for the addiction of Gucci I am refering to all those other people that cannot control them self from buying all this fashion status item, it would easily cost $200 to $10k for something as simple as a key chain to a haute couture dress from this fashion label. To think back buying a belt that cost $580 is really crazy, or even a Jeans that cost me $800, I could have bought like 10 levi’s jeans’ , this Iconic GG is making slaves to many people out there, their marketing is perfect, make everyone beautiful while carrying a GG bag, where some boutique could come out with similiar design with the fraction of the cost ? agreed? I was indeed a slave to fashion, spending over $10k buying all this stuff from Prada’s, LV, Gucci, D&G and my fav Hugo (orange Label) , oh no the memories is coming back to me.. ahah .. those Armani, those Burberry and those lacoste.. what happen you ask me to those items ? well .. its still with me.. but some is thrown away already, as it was wear and tear.. so its good money thrown away.. ahha ..  well who knows ? if you are a slave to fashion as me .. I would just reinvent myself and get things at a cheaper bargain from alternative store like levi’s or quiksilver, cheaper bags like Crumpler and Freitag, and cheaper shoes from Tiger Onitsuka or even Adidas or Nike, at least thier shoes dont cost $600.
 
If you have this addiction, I kindly advice if your earning + return of investimet x (investment) – needs (wants – DEsigner LAbel) = life balance, then go ahead.. if its not balance and you are riding on negative credit .. better re-evaluate your own spendings and investment. My own weatlh management has always been good, so I dont knwo about yours, catch ya later..

One decade of Friendship

I felt like writing about our friendship, well at least my childhood friendship with my close buddies, we all grown up together and its been already more than 12 years of friendship and we had our ups we had our downs, Most of our deepest secret I think each of us know a fair bit from one of another, but we never went back stabbing our friends in the back in the past , neither in this present, but I am very sure also not in the future, each and everyone of us know each other families like its our own, well not forgetting Justin who is the illegal brother to Henry, and Lawrence is my brother in arms..

All of us have grown up and now holding heavy responsibilities among ourself, One having a successful business, the other working for a very big firm and recently installed a NGV in his car to save the natural resources of the world as well as save some more money, the other is succeeding his father business and last but not least one having a stable job working for our friends dad, well as for me, I dont compare what we friends have or not have, I only thank god for what I have, I just want to say Thanks for the 15 years and more of friendship, thanks for being there for me when I needed you guys, and yes Henry I was crying the the Toilet in Sunway way way back then when you asked Justin or Tien Seong about it if you wanted to know.

I cant wait for all of you guys to be married and seeing all your little one running around, As I will be seeing little Jason pretty soon this coming September, I can’t wait for it.. Justin I know you will be getting a hot chick pretty soon and Henry you also, as for Lawrence.. congratulations on your proposal this coming 28th I wish you all the best, I know she will be very happy with you

here is a picture of us in 1996 and another a very recent 2008 compare .. did we change ? I guess rather not! only growing sideways .. but our smiles still gleams wide ..

Yu Sheng

I think I did a blog something about Yu Sheng a few years back, anyway .. this is not about the Yu Sheng but more about the destruction of it by our friends who always have the reunion dinner, well it never fails  that the nicely arranged piece of food is for us to loh hei for prosperity and luck but instead we all treat it like its a ritual to throw that find delicacy around the table, I may not have the full years of all the Destroyed Yu Sheng, but here is last years one, but I am not there but It still put a smile on my face.. its really funny .. check it out, after the loh hei I really can’t call it Yu Sheng any more but tossed salad more like it, Enjoy ! will post the recent 2008 Yu Sheng for you all to see when I am back for the dinner .

American Supports !!

America Idol was showing on channel 5, and i was watching it, that show entertains like millions for ever many seasons and still has its following, people who are interested in AI, are not in for the music but for the emotions, the songs and the amusement and how people break down,  To me American Idol shows me alot of family values and culture, you ask me how ? well I say that when you see the audition, who will always stand by when they are singing inside auditioning, its their family and friends, they are full of support , its really good to see them waiting as early a 5am, there was this old lady as old as 93 years of age and she was waiting for her niece of 16years old, you see all those people waiting for their hopeful auditioning to be the next AI, what are some of them thinking? I think they themself know that they cant be the next AI but they still try it out, this is what I call self perception of a perfect image, just like how when we put on our ear buds and sing or even when we are the shower and start singing, In our mind we maybe singing to the songs of our fav artist as in our mind, we hear them , but in reality its our voice, I can’t say that I can sing, but I surely can’t, and even if I do, only a few songs .. as I have a problem with lyrics.. anywy .. signing out, wanna catch some ZZzZ ! tomorrow is Chinese New YEar and I wanna take this opportunity to wish you all a Blessed CHinese NEw Year and May Everyone Prosper like there is no tomorrow ! HUAT AR !!

Virus Commandments ??

Ten Commandments for Your Computer Sanity

1. Dont assume anything. Make some time to learn about securing your system.

2. Acquire and use a reliable antivirus program. Select an antivirus that has a consistent track record. Checkmark, AV-Test.org and TuV are among the most respected independent testers of antivirus software.

3. Acquire and use a reliable firewall solution. Again, independent reviewers are your best bet for reasonable choices. Some operating systems come with a firewall which only filters incoming traffic. Use a firewall that can control both incoming and outgoing Internet traffic.

4. Do not open e-mails coming from unknown or distrusted sources. Many viruses spread via e-mail messages so please ask for a confirmation from the sender if you are in any doubt.

5. Do not open the attachments of messages with a suspicious or unexpected subject. If you want to open them, first save them to your hard disk and scan them with an updated antivirus program.

6. Delete any chain e-mails or unwanted messages. Do not forward them or reply to their senders. This kind of messages is considered spam, because it is undesired and unsolicited and it overloads the Internet traffic.

7. Avoid installing services and applications which are not needed in day-by-day operations in a desktop role, such as file transfer and file sharing servers, remote desktop servers and the like. Such programs are potential hazards, and should not be installed if not absolutely necessary.

8. Update your system and applications as often as possible. Some operating systems and applications can be set to update automatically. Make full use of this facility. Failure to patch your system often enough may leave it vulnerable to threats for which fixes already exist.

9. Do not copy any file if you don’t know or don’t trust its source. Check the source (provenance) of files you download and make sure that an antivirus program has already verified the files at their source.

10. Make backups of important personal files (correspondence, documents, pictures and such) on a regular basis. Store these copies on removable media such as CD or DVD. Keep your archive in a different location than the one your computer is in.
