Detachable Radio Cum Clock

Published November 29, 2010 by ireneyksoh

Found this long forgotten radio clock when clearing my wardrobe.  Got this as a free gift with a magazine purchased at PageOne bookshop more than a year ago. Can’t remember the exact amount I had paid for it but must be quite low since I’m a well known miser.

The radio clock is made up of 4 lego look alike blocks that one can dissemble and re-assemble in many different ways, which is good for me as I love to play around with my things.

After using it for 2 days, this is how the radio clock looks like now. Am still exploring more ways that I can stack up the 4 blocks.  Oh boy! its such fun!!

Btw: I have got an extra pc of the radio clock lying idle in my house. Anyone interested in getting it, please leave me a comment here.


Blackcurrent Lip Butter From Guardian

Published November 29, 2010 by ireneyksoh

Was shopping at Guardian and come across this cute lip butter. There were 3 different flavours and I choose blackcurrent. This is the first time I’ve seen lip butter in this type of container.

The scent of the lip butter is very sweet and not artificial as I expect it to be. However, there is one little thing that kinda pissed me off.

I was kinda horrified when I turned to the back of the lip butter and find that the manufacturing date to be backdated till year 2008.  Its partially my own fault too as I did not remember to check out the expiry date as I used to when I purchased the item. Should remind myself to be more careful from now.
