Here's to more Britney Spears

It has been a pretty good year.

We have received numerous messages and support from people who has stumbled upon our blog.

It has also helped us open some doors that had us meeting some great people, one of which is our current employers.

To which we thank all of you.

However we are getting bored now.

The very existence of the blog is to do something different. That is what we (try to) pride ourselves against. And we have seen enough people doing the same thing these days that makes us want to do something different.

Do not get us wrong. We did not invent this whole blog/potfolio showcase and this idea thing. Credit must be given to Martin and Theo, The Staufenberger Boys and personally, a certain creative team's book I saw at TBWA about 2 years ago.

Besides, over the last month we debated that we might have veered off course a bit. Posting irreverent images and texts that probably make no sense.

So here we are, back to basics and sticking to what's true of what we first set out to do.

We do not know what it will be yet. But we may have an idea.

Here's wishing everyone a great New Year ahead and may Paris and Britney continue to be friends forever.


PS As a personal side project, here something I've realised.

Life's too short

I desperately want the new Sony W950i phone.

Doesn't help that O2 refuses to give it to me for free.

Worse, my gf got it for free from Carphone Warehouse. She simply phoned up and blagged it.

So I went to ebay to browse and see if I can get a good deal.

And this auction I came across had me in stitches.

When I put up something up on ebay, I try to be as precise as possible. Sometimes it took me about 15mintues to research then write the description.

But this guy wrote about three lines and said, "Life is'nt long enough to list all the details and functions..."

How true.

I should make better use of my time.

Watch them waste away.

Since the summer everyone out east and maybe west have been wearing these 5 bucks shoes. I've gone through around 3 pairs so far and have finally upgraded to a proper pair of leather converse. But cuddy our in house graphic designer is still going dispite the bad weather. So i thought i would document the downfall of these shoes. This is the first shot ohhh dont they look nice.

There's light...

Coach journeys are horrible.

And I just feel that train companies are underselling their 'product' a bit.

Or it's probably complacency.

Train journeys are like flying.

Except it's far less restrictive, more comfortable and actually city-to-city, if you know what I mean.

If there are numerous award winning ads for airlines, I don't know why train companies can't achieve the same.

Especially in this country.

Maybe it's an aspirational issue.

Flying is, afterall, sexier than any other mode of transport.

But train beats coach anytime, anyday.
