A Tribute to Leslie Cheung

Time flies, tomorrow will be the 9th death anniversary of Leslie Cheung. Wanna share a 'new' song I just found out recently. Never heard it before, luckily found the Eason Chan covers version first. He purposely picked and sing this song in a tribute concert for Leslie. A hidden gems and also a great song from 陳小霞 and 林夕! Together with the original version, I love both, my song of the month of April!

张惠妹 记得

Shuffle and randomly come up in my ipod, then forgot how many times of repeating. Should be my favourite song of A-mei. An oldies or classic for more than 10 years from released. Been covered by many artiste in recent years, such as; Jam Hsiao, Khalil Fong and song writer himself; JJ Lin. To me none of them reaching the same level like original. Heheh..

Beside that the video is great too. The tone or styling and haircut of A-mei, consider one of the best or topnotch appearance of A-mei to me. Everything are almost in pretty essential. Not forget that this is more than a 10 years music video. Enjoy.

Andy Lau in 桃姐 A SIMPLE LIFE

Just watched the movie last night. Love the realistic, simple yet delicateness of story telling. A movie that you shouldn't miss. After all, found a little nice stuff inside. Hehe.. Check out the shoes that main actor; Andy Lau is wearing in the movie. A classic icon from New Balance; M1300. A made in UK version, from their well known Flimby Factory. Pairing this shoes with classic checked shirt, cardigan and chinos, I mean the stylist should get a big credit here! Simply bring out an image or taste of a wealth and low profile "少爷" character. So this is the pretty...

ASOS Padded Gilet

For this kinda gilet or vest, basically I still prefer a thicker Down Vest for layering, too bad only apply for winter. (different story with Suit Vest) Anyway these thin padded gilets in navy and beige are both from ASOS. I love the whole colour composition, such an eye-candy. The scale of blue mixing with the beige on vest, desert boot and the model's skin tone, just so well executed and perfect to me.

Childhood Goodness

One of my best kept secret recipe; Nescafe + Strawberry Jam Cookies! Im not that kinda Milo kids during my early ages, and I only drink Nescafe with my afternoon snacks. Maybe Im such a strange kid. Hehee..

And I just got this classic red colour Nescafe mug last year. Come with the coffee powder. It just recalling back the tastes of childhood. Goes with condensed milk like old time. Also searching back the Strawberry or Pineapple Jam Cookies to make my perfect duo!

Same way of having it since im kid. Similar to the Oreo ways, but skip the 'twist and lick' and mine is just dunk with Nescafe! Yummy..

Ryan Gosling in DRIVE

Just watched the movie last night. To me the story line might not be that kinda interesting like expected. Still I love the music and mood of it. And I found the most inspiring part are actually the styling of Ryan Gosling. Hmm.. Lets share some of the best here.

The renowned quilted satin Scorpion jacket in the movie. If you wonder why they pick a scorpion pattern, you should read this fable story. That makes it more 'complete' for the driver character. By the way, you can even get yourself a replica here.

And most of the time, he wears a vintage Henley neck t-shirts for matching the jackets or extra layers on it. Other goodies are the Patek Philippe watch, the leather glove, the boots, retro glasses, fitted jeans and jacket. Details in the interview with costume designer Erin Benach by GQ.

Finally this is my favourite among all. The super fitted denim jacket from Levis. Its been trimmed like those made-to-measure clothing for Gosling. And I love the leather glove that stuffed in his back pocket, looks effortlessly cool! He is definitely the most impeccable denim jacket icon in my list, surpassed Kanye with a distance. If there is Pros and Cons; I just don't like his hairstyle in the movie honestly, too tame for the character. The stylist should make a more convincing one.

For further talks on denim jacket, check on Mr Porter site, they have a featured story on it. Not bad for a reference. And you will surely see me even more with mine these days! Hehee..

Brought another Chucks during a clearance sale last year. Treat it like a backup plan for my aging and trashing old pair. Also in simple black and white tone. The old one had being with me for more than 6 to 7 years. Truly a reliable styling companion. It could blend into any style I want and the best part is; you don't need any good care on it. Hehhee..

Ok, for some of these special design Converse, its quite hard to get back a same one after sometime. Different story for basic models or either you stock 2 or more in one time. Luckily I didn't find a model that can make me this crazy 'yet'.

Pictures is always best to cut short my story... Left is my retired old man while Right is the steady young gun. Same feeling same tone but a little enhancement. So glad to get this Robert Indiana's LOVE version, with a sale price tag, no complaint!!

The black out sole is so catchy and right to go with the total look. Follow with details on mid sole, the little LOVE printing square just stand out from normal, my eye candy!

Compare inside; still remember the pinstripe pattern and the extra metal eyelet that make me paid for it. For the new one, the major design in black and white nicely placed or hide behind the star of Chucks. And the lovely all black lining printed with the copyright of the artwork.

Last but not least, the creator of this classic artwork; Robert Indiana. Together with the long list of his beautiful LOVE sculptures all over the world.

Sneakers White Red Blue

One of our endless topic. Talking about sneakers that longing in my mind and lets share the thought here. All are vintage models that become our wardrobe or shoes rack staple today. Also the essential of each labels. Sorted in a similar tone or colour combination. Stayed on a white base (leather or nylon or canvas) with a little red and blue in details. Never goes wrong or bored even looking back at 10 or 20 years. Classic yet classy. Hmm.. Any models that I miss out? And which one are you from the list?
