Mid-Century Modern, WHAT?!

21 Oct

Yes, I have been working hard to keep my room clean.

But you know what,,, it is difficult,,, because day by day, more and more, stuff fill up your room.

I moved to Tokyo in the beginning of 2015.

Let me just show you my room and how it is set up.

You never know,,, it may help someone layout their room…;P

I always wanted a long desk so here is my setup.

I got two muji desks that are L120cm x W60cm each. I first bought two “Dulton Stool Clipper 2s” ivory and grey.

I then bought the Eames plastic arm chair in Peacock blue. (Top picture)

I think its a rare color, haven’t seen it anywhere.

Fresh iMac (2010)

27 Sep

Hello!
The other day (a month ago… to be exact)
A well known man of mine gave me an aluminum box. Engraved on the back was an apple mark.

He told me that possibly the hdd died out on it.
He didn’t want to tackle the time to go through procedures to get “this” surfing the web.

So,,, I became the lucky one, to adapt this product.

Its a 27in Mid 2010, iMac
with 16gb of RAM

I have decided to give it a shot to replace the dead HDD with an SSD.

with a lot of help from ifixit.com I was able to get the machine running again!

the cost was roughly around $300.

That said,,, I am back to have fun. just fun.

P.S. Steezy bought an iMac !

Specifications on my iMac set up is listed below

Colette Carnaval

15 Mar

Colette Carnaval was absolutely the hottest place for fashion goers, children, teens, students, and adults to attend on the 10th and 11th of March 2012.

The event gathered a crowd of people with the newest and slickest brands of clothing. This event was held to celebrate Colette Shop’s 15th birthday! (www.colette.fr)

So what was going on inside the “Party tent?”

Well, Colette is a select shop and the brands that have their goods sold at the store, held a booth inside the Carnaval, organizing their own way to celebrate the 15th  birthday. The booths varied from arts and craft, bowling, video game contests, basketball shooting, photo shoots and etc. I was surprised to meet Mark the cobrasnake  (who gave me a pose with his special Colette sunglasses) and was lucky to spot Pedro Winter of Ed banger (faaaar away).

Here are pictures from the event.

Overall, Happy Birthday Colette and for people who are planning to go to Paris, stop by Colette! You will not Regret!

Au revoir!

Bose IE2

23 Feb

So, I had the Bose IE1 lying around all my other electronic junks that were waiting to be thrown out. It had been in the pile for roughly 3-4years. Now I use the Beats by Dre Studio headphone. However, they are a hassle to carry around.

Wanting a new earphone, I had been searching the internet for a replacement of my old Bose IE. When looking through the Bose page I came across the warranty page (Bose Japan.) I discovered my earphones could not be covered by the 1 year warranty, but it could be sent for repairing. Well, since I had nothing to lose I filled out a form attached on the page as a pdf, and sent it to Bose Japan. The condition of my BoseIE: music only plays from the right ear piece.

Today(a week later) I received a package in exchange with payment of 6300yen (about $78.)

So my Bose IE1 became IE2 for paying 6300yen which is half of the price on amazon.

If you have useless Bose products lying around look through the warranty and see if you can have it replaced.

Photography job

8 Feb

Today, my boss offered me a small job as a photographer for his daughter’s communion party.

It sounds super cool, and it could be a start of something interesting!

Time to get a new lens, perhaps?

Skid

7 Feb

My brother was here over the weekend, and I let him try my fixie.

I also showed him skidding, and he took a vid of it, so here it is.

Nothing fancy. I just wanted to show my friends that I can fucking skid (for a short distance)…

[DIY Leathercraft] Project “Field Theories Portfolio”

7 Feb

Few weeks ago, I was surfing the web when I came across a very “chic” leather product by Field Theories.

They make this amazing “portfolio”, ideal for carrying small notebooks and pen around.

I really wanted one, but paying over 100 euros and have it shipped from the States kinda seemed like too much of a hassle.

Then it came to me: I’ll make it myself.

This is what it should look like.

  

Last weekend, I went to a leather store in Munich and bought everything I needed (rivets, eyelets, leather, tools, etc).

   

Today, I finally had the time to try setting the rivets and eyelets. I think it went super well. See for yourself 😀

 

Tomorrow, I’ll head down to my company’s workshop and bang on more rivets, this time for real.

 

 

New tires!!

6 Feb

I got rid of the cheap ass chinese tires that came with my fixie, and got myself a nice new set of Schwalbe tires!

Schwalbe Ultremo ZX foldable tire 2012

The use 3 different compounds on different parts of the tire to maximize the performance. How awesome is that.
