Stuff that’s so awesome it hurts, Vol. 7


This week, I present you with a hodgepodge of things, not all of them new.  I know at least one of these items has been around for several years, but I’m just now getting around to noticing it. So forgive me if you’ve seen any of these before, but I hope you enjoy the rest.

Nelson Omar the Owl Clock. Isn’t he cute? If you’re one of those people who watches the clock all day at work because you just can’t wait to go home, this might be a good way to help take the sting out of a long workday. If you’re not an owl fan, Nelson has several cute animals to choose from.

Hello! Skinny Jeans. Coming in three different lengths (that might save you a trip to the tailor), and featuring the oh-so-flattering “barely boot-cut” style, these jeans are supposed to perform quite the magic trick – make everyone who wears them look thinner.  Say what you will about that goal, but I know that it’s damn near impossible to find jeans that are both comfortable and flattering, so if these do half what they claim they will, then they’re awesome.

Cloud Meeting Room.  There is no way you can sit in this and not feel like you’re meeting inside a marshmallow, but it’s still pretty cool.  I wonder if it’s soundproof. Can people outside the cloud hear what’s going on inside the cloud? It’s a pretty neat idea, but I can’t really imagine the workplace that needs one of these.

Mini Business Card File Cabinet. This seems like a very useful way to organize business cards. I tend to just leave them in stacks all over my office, so filing them away in a mini cabinet would be a great way for me to reduce the clutter on my desk.  Plus, this is the least expensive and most practical item in the list this week.

Bejeweled Panther Clutch by Renaud Pellegrino. Now for the least practical and (second) most expensive item on this week’s list. This clutch is just so fancy. I mean, if a Swarovski crystal-crusted panther doesn’t scream class, what does? Oh, and I don’t know if you can tell from this image, but he has a green eye. Now that’s attention to detail.  Only $2,285. Why don’t I have two of these already?

That’s all for this week! Check back next week for volume 8.

    ?????RE BITTERMELON ???,???????,???? ,?????BITTERMELON ????? , ????????EMOTIONAL , ????????,??????? ??, ????????????????, Most resources are in the hand of the elder gerieatnon . Young people are never independent because they are not financially free. Accomodation cost exceeds the wage of an average professional because the capital gain will skyrocket in the market bubble. You can still say you need more data to prove it.What I can tell you is more traces of Japan have shown in HK. I could even tell you is that teenagers nowaday has lost ‘hope’ when they understand education has become a game to those who can pay for it. No matter how bad a student do in public exam, they can still enter university by sending them to Australia , Britain and USA. When they come back , they are often armed with a title that they speak fluent English or whatsoever. That’s what my tutorial students told me. How desperate they are. If you say Hong Kong Has never changed, I could tell you it has become a playground for the rich but not a ‘dreamland’ like before. I won t leave any comment . So please don t mistake any other anonymous man to be me.
