Goodbye Mr Lee

Hi friends,

Sunday was the State Funeral for Singapore's founding father and first Prime Minister, indeed the entire week had been an emotional and dark week for every Singaporean including myself.

Indeed many tears were shed for the great man but it's also through this entire mourning week, we can see how united we as a people are. I'm sure the late Mr Lee would have been very pleased if he saw. 

Thank you so much Mr Lee that you have given up your life for the country, truly there are no individual that has reached the level of contribution you made for the nation. You are an astounding visionary that has brought this nation which started off as a fishing village and that many thought could never make it into a nation that is now a bustling metropolis that has impacted the world over!

As a mark of respect, I will start blogging again in the coming weekend.

Thanks for reading.

Rest in Peace, Mr Lee Kuan Yew

Hi friends,

Today is indeed a sad day, one of Singapore's founding fathers Mr Lee Kuan Yew left us in the wee hours of Monday morning.

He will always be remembered as the man who led the transform of Singapore from a fishing village to what it is now.

Rest in Peace, Sir.

Weekly Vibe #122

Hi Creative and Fashionable people!

Welcome to Weekly Vibe #122! Awwww right!! I'm so happy today as here I am blogging on my new machine!! An Alienware X51 R2!! I had a really radical deal which costed me about $1799 (US$1306) at an IT Fair at Suntec City. It usually retails at $1999(US$1451) I didn't just save myself $200 but also got a free set of Alienware Keyboard and Mouse! This machine is one of the ultimate for gaming and boy I totally enjoy gaming! 

Other than a good deal for the Alienware desktop, UK Tights has awesome Elbeo deals as well! 

Elbeo is the name most people would think of when it comes to support hosiery, they have been in the business for decades their products are highly affordable too the most pricey product being at GBP9.70 and the lowest priced product at GBP6.99 Reviews are generally fair on these products. So why not?

That's all I have for you all as I have to carry on setting this desktop up!

Thanks for reading!

Outfit of the Week #78

Hi Creative and Fashionable people!

Welcome to Outfit of the Week #78! Today we will be featuring this outfit!

This photo was featured on Men Wearing Tights tumblr page

Here we are looking at a similar formal style we featured last week of Kevin-Prince Boateng. Indeed the blazer the model is wearing is really stylish, probably something you wouldn't find at your nearest boutique, the shirt, capri length pants and opaque tights aren't too uncommon to find and woot check out his SHOES!!! Oh my gosh! It's so cool! RAD colour combination there! Overall I don't think this outfit is odd but I believe pretty formal looking if not gives the creative celebrity feel like Kevin-Prince Boateng in his outfits with shorter pants and tights. 

What do you think? I'd would try this someday when the event arises!

Thanks for reading!

Weekly Vibe #121

Hi Creative and Fashionable people!

Welcome to the 121th edition of Weekly Vibe! This week was pretty okay as workload was quite relaxed but on Sunday I was really glad that one of my friends whom I knew got married! I knew her back when she was still 18 in school uniform but now a teacher and a wife too! I'm really happy for them both!

Our friends at UK Tights also recently made visit to Pretty Legs' hosiery factory in the outskirts Leicester, UK. If you are really curious how Pretty Legs or how hosiery is being produced, check out their post on their visit to Pretty Legs' factory. To be honest I would like to go visit a hosiery factory some day as well!

Here are some pictures they shared on their blog site

And also from UK Tights, they having a special 3 for 2 promotion on their Wolford Satin Touch 20 tights

Do hurry up as it's just for a limited time only!

Recently I found out about this really interesting brand called "Platino" from Spain and they make really interesting hosiery products! Their line of opaque tights and fashion tights really caught my attention!

Take a look at the Platino Luxe Fata Tights They look similar to the CdR's Uppsala tights

Platino Jennifer Tights

Platino unique no waistband Total Comfort 40

Platino Janne Tights

If you really interested, you can check out their line of products in the Shapings site

That's all I have for you!

Outfit of the Week #77

Hi Creative and Fashionable people!

This week we are featuring something a little special! Instead of models and myself we are having a German Footballer! And he is non other than Kevin-Prince Boateng of Schalke 04!

Photo from
Awesome!! I was really happy that a celebrity is carrying the legwear look! And actually this isn't his first photo! Here is another one!

Photo from Stefan PS's Flickr page

I realised that actually in terms of clothes, we both share quite similar styles, the oversized or drop crotch shorts and the high cut sneakers. I'm really pretty sure at least for the 2nd photo, he is definitely wearing tights and not leggings, they look like 80 denier tights from here, you could tell from some of his skin was showing and you know what? His legs were shaven! You could find other photos of him and you can clearly see that he has shaven legs.. well I'm too sure why but probably having shaven legs would reduce drag when he is dribbling the ball... or shaven legs look better in tights..? Hahaha! I really really like his style! I probably going to try the style in the 2nd photo, shirt, blazer and oversized shorts! I'm pretty sure +Eugene Wong would probably say.. "Hey! That's my style!" Hahaha! or he would have commented to me.. "See.. I told you it would work out!" Yes yes.. I'm sorry +Eugene Wong.. and I repent! Seriously I really like those clean white sneakers and in fact one of the reasons why black opaque tights were gaining popularity again was because women could effectively make their shoes stand out and from here you could really see his sneakers standing out and I like his sneakers! 

Kudos to Herr Kevin-Prince Boateng!

Weekly Vibe #120

Hi Creative and Fashionable people!

Welcome to Weekly Vibe #120! Another great end to the week I hope for everyone though it may not be good but I believe that the coming days will get better because Spring is here and it's a new beginning! :)

I really like the bluetooth wireless earphones my girlfriend got me for my birthday!

I felt really blessed to be honest! Also on Friday the shipment of tights which I ordered from UK Tights have arrived in Singapore and I'm going to collect them at the post office on Monday! Man I'm really glad this week has already ended for them as I have been pulling off a 6 day work week for the past 2 weeks, I know I shouldn't complain but I'm really missing out a lot... but oh well I won't be working on another Sunday till next month! 

I was really excited when I saw UK Tights Blog's recent post titled "Innovative Hosiery: The Future of Hosiery" I was like Wow!! even the title got me really excited! The few things that really caught my attention were the hidden under-the-toes seam tights (Pierre Mantoux Veloutine 0 Ultra Sheer Tights) which retail at 14.99 GBP

The next thing would be the Pretty Polly Heatsense and Coolsense tights, feeling cold but not wanting to wear those overly thick tights? Pretty Polly Heatsense has a special heatsense yarn so you don't need wear those thick wooly itchy tights! Feeling warm but still wanting the opaque look? Pretty Polly Coolsense has a unique stay cool technology and yet you get the opaque cover! You'd might be thinking.. with all these cool technology they should cost a bomb! But guess what? Both of the sense series go for 9.99GBP each!

One more I would like to feature are the Charnos Velour Lined Tights with Cotton Boot Sock, these are actually very unique tights that features a cotton mix socks that helps keep your feet breathe and feel comfy all day. But then again this isn't new right? Yes yes I know about Bootights and they are indeed great as well.. however if you are not a tight budget and have US$32 to spare.. why not? Or if you are, you can get these Charnos tights at 11.99GBP!

I have only shared a portion of UK Tights Blog's post, do read the whole thing and comment! 

As I have said... Spring is upon us! And UK Tights have added a couple of new items for this season!

Do check out their new spring series!  

Tightsplease also has a special bulk discount deals on their opaque tights! 

Oh sweet my favourite Cette Dublin tights are on a offer too! Offer is still the 20th of March! Don't miss it!

Well that's all I have for you! Have a great coming week ahead!
