Accidental good luck again- While price checking for G.Bawa book at the Museum of Sydney MOS today. This bright orange Barragan book caught my eye at the bottom of the shelves. It came down to 95$ from 175$ - Couldn't resist it, so I put them on lay-by. I can say that MOS offers a good range of books, and prices too :) you might get lucky as they put out some specials from time to time. I bought the SANAA Houses at 63$ from MOS compared to 70$, 76$ and 90$ from other places around town.

by the local thinktank - Asylum
New thing in town. Boutique cum cafe selling 100 flavours of chocolate.
Range from rose with rose petals, cheese, white sesame, lychee martini (voted best), pandan, lemon peel, strawberry yogurt, rose hip, darjeerling, longan, .. ... to ginger ..
Best part is that each chocolate bar has been segmented into different sizes, s - large.
Their store is done by Asylum themselves - simple, and i thought it was Aesop-ish

Live Forever: Elizabeth Peyton
Some shopping done today, haven't got enough time to get SANAA Houses, but I snatched this from the MCA store, that lady is nice enough to give 20% specials before the museum close for the day :D
Nice book, some of them could be re-printed at larger or smaller for personal collections.

Marilyn Minter, Terry Richardson and Juergen Teller - Hyperrealistic, high fashion and often, hardcore pornography.
What is interesting about Marilyn Minter is that, upon closer look, her photography is in fact, portraying mouth choking on baubles, bruised feet in high heeled shoes, overly heavy smudged makeup on the eye. Rewards of glamour...

Liked the whole super polished chrome finish and the very japanese form, yeah... scratch all you can! but I like that little patch of warmth detail behind the backrest of the chair - it's like a discreet garnish... hint of warm timber for those who really hate *cold-chair* - now no more complains! :)
Designed by Naoto Fukasawa - he also designed the wall mounted CD player for Muji -

'Standard' kind of beauty and understated -
A friend of mine will occasionally surprise and please me with his good eye in ... styles. This black calf skin cap toe shoe is definitely getting a yes from me - The heels, the overall classic shape and yet very youth full looking one.
So why not?
