StarBucks: Year Of The Tiger Mugs

This year, Chinese across the globe will be celebrating Lunar New Year on Valentine’s Day. To cash in on this rare event, StarBucks Coffee has introduced a couple of new coffee mugs and tea cups to usher in the year of the Tiger. Saw these at StarBucks KLCC today and got myself the one with a little white tiger for RM38. No free coffee with purchase though. With shipping, some sellers are asking for US$35 on eBay. Go figure.

Service Standards At Crocs Is Crap

How long does it takes to get from Lot 10 to Mid Valley? On average, 15 mins drive on non-peak hours and possibly 1 hour during peak. How long will it takes to do a stock transfer from Crocs Mid Valley to Crocs Lot 10? Eternity. Was at Lot 10 on Sunday to get my Crocs Velocity work shoe. Since they were out of stock for my size, they’ve placed a stock transfer from Mid Valley. After 3-days, James couldn’t stand their incompetence and made his way there to pick it up for me instead. Crocs – your service standard is crap.

Crocs: Velocity

Will be getting this tomorrow. The Crocs outlet at Lot 10 doesn’t have stock for my size and had to do a stock transfer from Mid Valley’s branch. I never thought I’d be caught dead wearing crocs but they are just too comfortable to be ignored. Velocity is their first work shoe and its really comfy. For a big sized guy like me, good foot support is important. It’s not the best looking shoe around, but I’m pretty sure its the most comfortable work shoe available – for me, at least.

Play, by JT

This is not a MP3 player. It’s just a shameless endorsement for money by a pop singer – Justin Timberlake’s new men’s fragrance from Givenchy called Play. Batteries and FutureSex LoveSound not included.

New Old Specs

Got myself some specs yesterday. I love black frames. And the recent trend with retro geek glasses has affected my selections. On hindsight, I don’t think I like the matt transparent one. Most probably will be going back to exchange for a black one instead. What was I thinking?

PlayAsia: Good Deal, Bad Game

When I was in Tokyo last year, I saw gameshops at Akiba throwing this game out at dirt cheap prices. Bins were filled with this title. Though cheap then, it can’t match the current promo price at playasia.com. It’s almost free – if you count the cost of shipping. Amazing deal, bad game.
