Fashion Walk of Fame

Exactly a month ago at New York City, Fashion District – Fashion Walk of Fame – 7th Avenue.

Just a few shots as the walkway was getting too busy for me to stand & snap more pictures.

According to one of the tour bus guide at Gray Line, this is the world’s largest button…fake one that is.

In view of Hurricane Irene passing by the city, may the New Yorkers stay safe and dry.

iPhone Auto-Correct

I am so sureee that I am not alone in this. Always, always so timely and so good at making things sound so wrong but well, I still LOVE iPhone(s).

Public Garden

 (I know, miserable amount of photos! I wish I had taken more...)

I was putting together feedback from our first experience at Public Garden and I thought I might as well share it here. It was also our first time out in the open (apart from the usual retail at Parco next NEXT, Rockstar, Antipodean and online channels).

Here’s our recap of the event. We felt that full credits should be given to Public Garden’s excellent organizing team:

1) Good vendor mix (anchor vendors include – BooksActually, Cat Socrates, The little dröm store, Dustbunny Vintage, Casual Poet)
Unique yet focused. We are so thankful that it is not the “usual” flea market. However, this is based on my observation from our tiny corner as I didn’t have much spare time to leave the booth to explore the other side.
 
2) *Thumbs up* for commendable publicity via social media.
We felt that we’ve already connected to everyone way before the actual event.
 
3) Which led to quality turn out.
The customers we met at Public Garden were very appreciate and supportive of design, arts and craft…not merely bargain hunters. We love ’em!
 
4) Nice location.
It’s not in the midst of the crowd but being tucked away at the corner of the city makes it a hidden gem that attracts sincere shoppers. Although (like it has been mentioned before by others), it could do even better with an air-conditioned venue (we were sweating cats & dogs – but nice people make up for it) 🙂
 

Certainly hope that Public Garden will continue to stay focus on promoting indie designs, arts, crafts and keep it upmarket. Would totally love the idea of having something similar to Perth Upmarket, Indie Designer Market@Randolph Street, SoWa Open Market here in sunny Singapore. Won’t you love it too?

A shout out to the following people that I finally get to connect face-to-face at Public Garden (credits to twitter-world) (thank you for dropping by our booth and say hello):

[RUMOR] iPhone 5 Could Be Revealed on September 7

I’ve grown to be so reliant on my iPhone and I am pretty positive many feel the same way too. Left my phone behind this morning and I just had to backtrack in order to grab it. Otherwise, I would not have survived without GPS, e-mail, whatsapp, notes, twitter, Safari to Google everything else I need i.e. nearest location of fast cheque machine, money changer etc. That is how important.

Here is a rumor about the much anticipated iPhone 5 (and I thought someone told me the release was supposed to be in July??)

The following article is extracted from mashable.com (by Sarah Kessler):

A report from one Japanese website marks September 8 as the date of Apple’s next media event, at which some expect the company to launch the iPhone 5.

The company has historically released its new phones at its summer Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC). This year, in the wake of the Verizon iPhone 4 release, that tradition failed to pan out.

Apple’s annual September media event seems like a logical alternative, although it has in the past been reserved for iPod launches.

The date of the event, like most things Apple, is still safely in rumor territory. MacRumors says that it has asked blog Kodawarisan for the source of the date, and found it came from “a source in the know.”

Even if the date is accurate, it might not be when Apple decides to reveal the iPhone 5. AllThingsD heard from “sources familiar with the matter” that the iPhone 5 wouldn’t launch until October.

To Work or Not To Work?

Contrary to popular belief, you wouldn’t be wondering if you’ll be distracted or stuck to the bed/tv/or anything else distracting. Instead, you should read the following article from CLEO September issue because trust me, you will indulge in work like never before. Or at least that is what has been happening to me but I love it, as always. Nevertheless, I am working on striking a balance of everything possible.

 

What do you think? Are you an office junkie or a home enthusiast?
