Where do babies come from in Germany?

leave a comment »

“Mommie? Where do babies come from?” Still remember asking this question when you were a kid? Well, now kids in Germany have a definitive answer to such a frequently asked question. I think it should become the de facto reference to all parents around the world.

More on the origin of this book.

iTune Addiction

with 2 comments

OK, I must admit I have an iTune addiction. That’s why I try hard to stay away from that music store icon. But, all those ITMS advertising emails certainly didn’t help. Maybe it’s back-to-school season. Everybody and their grandmas’ got a new album coming out. Dude, not all at once! My pocket ain’t that deep! But for you bargain hunters out there, ITMS has a bargain section that sells most albums at $6.99. It’s not much, but enough to feed the starving students some fries! 😉

p.s. The Pink Spiders totally rocks my socks! And at a bargain too…

Free Starbucks Iced Coffee

with 116 comments

Free as in… FREE coffee! Works noon-9pm per person per visit. Good until September. Enjoy! Thank Kat for the hookup.

[ Coupon has been taken down since the promo’s no long valid ]

Here is a picture of me enjoying my free coffee. 🙂 😦


OK, I know a lot of you don’t believe this is legit (Hell, even I don’t believe it). But, like I say in the comments, this appears to be legit. You can call the Starbucks customer service to verify this. And as I promised, I did a second run from the same Starbucks where I got my free coffee yesterday. Please note that the Barista did say that they normally don’t accept coupons like this b/c it’s a print out. But the odds are you’ll most likely get your free coffee.

P.S. sorry for the jerky motion.

[ Video has been removed from the page as well…  ]


Well, we all know it’s going to happen sooner or later. There is no such thing as free coffee! At least not anymore. As someone has pointed out in the comment, Starbucks has stopped the free coffee promotion. So, please DO NOT use the coupon anymore. Hope you’ve enjoyed the freebie. I know I did. 🙂

Here to read more.

Oh yeah, our boy KFed’s at it again… This time he chooses to “lose control” at the Teens Choice Award. Classic. I love it. Oh, no, not the rap ’cause that’s wack. But, I must give props to his endless will to keep trying… Now give it up for ma boy. KFed, Yea~! *sarcasm off*

Moleskine Notebook

with 3 comments

moleskine-small.jpgThese notebooks might be the best damn notebooks ever made by mankind. I mean just listen to its promo:

“Moleskine is the legendary notebook, used by European artists and thinkers for the past two centuries, from Van Gogh to Picasso, from Ernest Hmingway to Bruce Chatwin…”

Although some of these claims are disputed, but I’m convinced that if Leonardo da Vinci were alive today, all his notes will be taken on a Monleskine. Yes, it’s that good. The only down side is my cheap ass Zebra ball pen doesn’t seem to do the notebook justice. Prehaps the finest paper only deserves the finest pen.
