buying made easy  

Posted by the Writer

I've never had problems with dark circles around my eyes, not unless I've been bawling my eyes out the night before. However, there are some in the world who are unfortunate enough to look like pandas every single day. The best cure is to use eye creams, not concealers day in and out. But which is the best eye cream for dark circles available in the market today? The poor girl will likely do her research and search for the best one but will the guy want to do it? Not likely, is it? He'll use the web for this. There are tons of one-stop sites carrying information he needs for eye creams so really, thank god for the internet.

Urban clothing  

Posted by the Writer

I think some people call Hip Hop apparel, urban clothing. Like, what? Seems like a marketing idea to improve the association value of the product in people's minds. Basically, to class it up. I know it sounds racist but come on, isn't that what it looks like? But in their defence, that is some fly apparel they're selling there. Definitely worth a look.

chocolate anniversary gifts  

Posted by the Writer

The thing I dislike most about anniversaries is the gift-giving. Like, what am I supposed to buy someone who can afford stuff I can't? Or rarely but it still happens, someone who has everything? That's when I resort to chocolate anniversary gifts. It's edible aka practical, and it comes cheaper than other things people really want. Like an iPad. And with chocolates, you can customize it yourself. It could be a gift basket, a portrait made of chocolates or even a 3D object, if you have the time. It's so versatile you'd wonder why you'd even consider anything other than chocolates in the first place.

office supplies

Girls love stationery. Yes, a generalization but nonetheless, very much true. The best place in Asia to get stationery is in Japan. Love love love their designs. But for someone who's broke, the next best thing is discount office supplies. They're cheap and you can pick the ones that look good. It won't be stunning, hence, the cheapness. It's just one of life's necessary trade offs, you know?

Also known as human growth hormones, HGH is incredibly useful in increasing energy, improving recovery, decreasing wrinkles, and umm... producing greater sexual vitality. At least that's what it says on websites. Sounds good, huh? Makes you want to go out and buy HGH right now, huh? Yeah. Just don't get caught with your pants down for not reading the instructions and side effects before taking those pills, will ya?

Choices  

Posted by the Writer

Sometimes it feels like we're going to kill ourselves quicker by taking fat burning products like liponox; but then again, you question yourself, is quality better than quantity? I.e. happier life because I looked good or longer life getting judged because of my size? Of course this is a very simplistic argument but it's a choice people make everyday, isn't it?

they just don't make them like they used to

As technology advances, the design in baby joggers become more comprehensive. Or some would say, their prices sky-rocket. Take for instance, the baby jogger city select. It can be a one or two-seater and has up to 16 different configurations... but it costs 500 dollars. But then again, if this baby, pun intended, doesn't fall apart before your next baby or your grandkid, it's definitely worth the buy.

Somehow, my cynicism tells me otherwise.

diet pills. they work.  

Posted by the Writer

I'm a non-believer when it comes to diet pills but recent events have got me wondering if I should discount pharmaceutics, especially diet pills. A buddy of mine is taking some sort of diet pill so he can bulk up healthily or something by losing fat while consuming a high protein diet. It works almost like adapexin-p where it gives you a boost of energy while helping you lose weight fast. My buddy's already lost 2.5kg in a 3 weeks. Not too bad if you don't bother about side effects that may or may not affect you.

Business phone systems  

Posted by the Writer

My goodness, had the internet changed our lives.

Did you know you could buy small business phone systems off the internet, just like that? It's probably good news for fraudsters and you know, genuine small and medium business owners. These phone systems work as your customer service line, voicemail and call router. Basically, it's your phone operator.

To digress a little, imagine this. You live in a huge house, probably 16 rooms and 10 bathrooms with a 6000 square foot build up. Wouldn't this phone system come in handy?

Beach, fire, company, that's all i want. And booze.  

Posted by the Writer

In the week long holiday I think I will have, I just want to hang at the beach with a bunch of friends with an outdoor fire pit to keep me warm. Don't forget the booze too. But they're going to Thailand and I'm not sure if I want to go. I'm broke as it is and I'm saving up for Prague! One day....

Sportwear  

Posted by the Writer

You know what bugs me? Exercise apparel costing so much it's preposterous! When I had to buy some sportswear like running shorts for outward bound school, I didn't manage to get anything. Because they were overpriced. But I also hate that I want to look presentable when I'm out exercising because who knows right?! And also because I want to feel confident, what are you thinking?!

Bruce Lee  

Posted by the Writer

The one other thing about Bruce Lee's I remember the most, other than his finger-waving fighting stance, is him sitting in his room, typing, and on him, attached several electrical pads. At every interval, his muscles will contract. When I follow the wires, they lead to a muscle stimulator. Then before I learnt how Bruce Lee died, I thought the muscle stimulator killed him because he overdid it. I was like, maybe 12, at the time

Cigars  

Posted by the Writer

I wonder if for my cousin's birthday this year, I should get him some cigars? The dude has always wanted to smoke one but I don't think he can without hearing from his parents. I mean, I could buy him some affordable-looking oliva cigars. A single roll costs only 2.31 dollars. We tried cigarillos last time but I didn't like the bitterness of the smoke. Don't think I was doing it right anyway.

Paper prices  

Posted by the Writer

If you haven't noticed, paper now costs more than ever, no thanks to rising costs of everything, deforestation and the impending threat of climate change. Even negotiation with your printer on the price of paper they are charging will go nowhere. They can't give you any more discounts! That's why, like low cost airlines, businesses like print direct for less are now the choice of SMEs. No frills, no exorbitant prices!

Industrial products  

Posted by the Writer

Industrial products are harder to sell since you don't get to sell them on tv ads, for instance, like most commercial products. You're limited to trade publications, flyers, referrals, etc. Take goulds pumps for an example. This is the description given for their products: "Gould Pumps manufactures residential and commercial, water supply and wastewater centrifugal and turbine pumps, controllers, variable frequency drives, and accessories." Who would use products like these? Developers, construction firms, factories, etc. Not commonly seen installed by your shirtless neighbour, married, father of two, in a suburban setting, is it?

Start up capital  

Posted by the Writer

I remember hearing from someone that someone else they know was planning to open an eatery with just 10,000 for capital. Now, being all grown up, that amount is going to be insufficient. From a conservative and ideal standpoint, a new business isn't going to make huge returns that quickly so you need to be able to sustain the business for a few months before you can expect to begin reducing debt. Start up capital needs to be large enough that you can afford POS systems, furniture, overhead (which of course includes employees' salaries, bills, etc). If you've pull with influential people, you may be able to get sponsored, especially with the computers, software and furniture. If not, request for one, see if they'll bite.
