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
