socks that don't so much rock  Posted on 06/22/2009

Maybe if his career in 1st grade does not work out, he can be a boy model...the sweater actually fits over his head.  EZ, seamless yoke sweater.  The yoke might be a little shallow, but it fits and he likes it.

First part of the town.  These guys are not as well organized as the others - no tv's as far as we can tell, no roof top cell phone perches. These guys are right below us.  Most of the shipping containers have been fitted to...

    Hi, I lived in KL for a couple of years a decade ago. Where do you live? I was wondering if you can tell me the names of a few furniture boutiques in Bangsar. There used to be a row of high end furniture stores with Thai, Burma, Malaysian teak wood antique furniture in Bangsar and Ampang. I bought a lot of stuff from a store called Rain Forest (I think) and another one called Silk Route (they used to be in Ampang but may have moved to Bangsar Baru). Do you know any of these stores? I wanted to order some stuff from them, but can't find their contact details online.
