Used Dior Homme Jeans!

My brother just gave me his used Dior Homme jeans. It is always fabulous to take something from your brother's closet, especially when it is an expensive item. I suppose this is kind of what having a sibling is all about. Besides, it's kind of soft, comfortable and already 'broken in'. I kind of also find it interesting that it was imported from Japan.

Worst Traffic is not Los Angeles...It's Honolulu!

According Inrix's to latest study, the worst Traffic is NOT Los Angeles...It's Honolulu!  I guess this bad car culture has been adopted everywhere.  Similar scenario can be said for Europe and Japan.

A Very Good Movie - Antichrist (2009)

Per my co-worker's recommendation, I saw Lars von Trier's 2009 movie Antichrist. My wife did not like it, but I liked it quite a bit. The cinematography was beautifully executed, its plot was very interesting and actors were superb (Willam Dafoe and Charlotte Gainsbourg). In short, it was bitingly unsettling. Highly recommended.

Cyrus Barker books by Will Thomas

Having just finished reading Will Thomas' books Some Danger Involved and To Kingdom Come, I am craving for more Cyrus Barker series. It is time for me to order more.

Tea gardens

So I wanted to talk about tea gardens a little bit today.  Most cities have them, have you ever been to it?  I really like the look and feel of them.  I have to say though the tea they serve and those little rice crackers aweful.  They kind of give a bad name to the whole japanese experience.  Have been to japan and please not even close, dont know why they always export all the crap low end stuff. Just saying.  Anyways if you havent check out your local one you should, alot of times they are free and a nice peacful little place to get away.
