Oishi x One Piece Green/Black Tea From Phuket, Thailand

Just came back from Phuket, Thailand. I wouldn’t say it’s a superb trip but it’s fun nonetheless.

As usual, grocery shopping at 7-11 was very cheap, so I bought these, Oishi Green/Black Tea One Piece edition.

It was so cheap that I just simply grabbed them. The 7-11 in Phuket is selling this for 10baht each, and I grabbed 12 of them.

Tonic – If You Could Only See 

If you could only see the way she loves me
Then maybe you would understand
Why I feel this way about our love
And what I must do

If you could only see how blue
Her eyes can be when she says
When she says she loves me

Well you got your reasons
And you got your lies
And you got your manipulations
They cut me down to size

Sayin’ you love but you don’t
You give your love but you won’t

If you could only see the way she loves me
Then maybe you would understand
Why I feel this way about our love
And what I must do

If you could only see how blue
Her eyes can be when she says
When she says she loves me

Seems the road less traveled
Shows happiness unraveled
And you got to take a little dirt
To keep what you love
That’s what you gotta do

Sayin’ you love but you don’t
You give your love but you won’t
You’re stretching out your arms
To something that’s just not there

Sayin’ you love where you stand
Give your heart when you can

If you could only see the way she loves me
Then maybe you would understand
Why I feel this way about our love
And what I must do

If you could only see how blue
Her eyes can be when she says
When she says she loves me

Sayin’ you love but you don’t
You give your love but you won’t
Sayin’ you love where you stand
Give your heart when you can

If you could only see the way she loves me
Then maybe you would understand
Why I feel this way about our love
And what I must do

If you could only see how blue
Her eyes can be when she says
When she says she loves me

CNY Day 3 & OOTD

On CNY Day 3, my sister joined me to go to Sunway Pyramid to meet up with some friends for lunch at Dragon-i.

We just had to snap in front of those big mirrors in front of the lifts, it’s my new obligatory Outfit of the Day (OOTD) post.

Top – Navy blue checks with red borderline flanel check shirt by Uniqlo
Bottom – Chino pants by Padini
Socks – Stripe socks by Uniqlo
Shoes – Red suede loafers by Tomaz

Now, some people thought flanel shirts would be very hot for Malaysian weather. I would say it’s fine if you are 90% to be indoor.

I’m beginning to get the hang of wearing shirts during day time, I mean, besides attending events in the evening and stuff.

Flanel check shirts are making its way back into the fashion trend cycle, more popularly known during the 90′s where most alternative rock bands usually wore them, namely Nirvana, Silverchair, Third Eye Blind, and many others.

CNY Day 2 & OOTD

So it’s CNY Day 2 on 11th February 2013, and with my new obligatory Outfit Of The Day (OOTD) post.

uniqlo oxford shirt, padini cropped slim fit pants, suede loafers

Top – Light purple Oxford shirt by Uniqlo
Bottom – Skinny-fit cropped pants by Padini
Shoes – Red suede loafers by Tomaz

I love my Uniqlo Oxford shirts because it’s not hot even though it’s kinda thick. And like any Oxford should be, it’s easier to take care, wrinkle-wise.

I could never imagined that I would like this cropped pants so much. It’s slightly baggy on the crotch area but it’s skinny-fit on the legs, which I had to get one size bigger of my usual size.

My red loafers are comfortable as ever, nuff said!

Introducing the Yat’s family – my dad, my younger sisters, and my adorable few months old nephew.

This Michelin-kid brings a lot of laughter in the family. Get a kid to brighten up your family, especially on CNYs! :D

CNY Day 1 & Outfit Of The Day (OOTD)

It’s first day of Chinese New Year and it’s always the same thing happened in Kuala Lumpur.

Woke up around noon, went out to the Chinese coffee shop nearby my house for lunch. The shop has never failed open for business every year during CNY from day 1 til 15th.

Being a true KL-ian who have no ‘hometown’ to head back, CNY is just another holiday for me, and probably the same to a lot of other KL-ians as well, apart from receiving angpows.

Anyhow, I think I’ll randomly start this girly stuff called Outfit Of The Day, shortformed OOTD. From what I see, not many guys, or probably very few guys, who would do this.

I guess I will do this just for the sake of showcasing my Uniqlo indulgence. For your information, guys do love shopping, too.

So here’s my first OOTD post.

S;G is a drama, psychological, mystery, science fiction, and thriller that talks about time travel theory with lots of discussions that made me keep on watching.

It starts off with Rintaro Okabe, the mad scientist of the series who also calls himself Huouin Kyoma, claims the world he’s living is a conspiracy theory and his life is in jeopardy for knowing the secret.

With him is Mayuri Shiina, the supporting female character who turned out to be the major reason for the time travel events.
