Red Lined Rims

Posted in Others on September 6, 2008 by au13

This is exactly want I want for my birthday. My husband still has no idea which brand but basically we are looking at about $600 each. Thats a total of less than $3000. I know its expensive and I know Ill only get it when someone buys it for me. (Like hell im spending that on my car hahaha) I basically like the red accent which is easily noticeable in an all black rims. Even if I love my car, I am still dying to change something in it. Or else it looks like every single GTI that came out of the dealer. I need to be unique, although not too unique because i have seen these rims a couple of times. A lot of people actually buy this because it matches perfectly the red accents in the front of the car.


Cash Cab

Posted in Others on August 31, 2008 by au13

 This is one of my favorite game shows in the world. I found it in the Discovery Channel. The concept is very unique, very exciting and very New York. Unsuspecitng passengers get into a regular looking cab in the city. Then the driver revelas that they are in a game show and they could earn cash whil they are being driven to their destination. They must answer the general trivia questions and theye arn $25, $50 or $100, depending on how hard the question is. When you reach your destination without making 3 mistakes, you get to keep the cash amount you’ve accumulated. When you reach 3 strikes, you get out of the cab. It has basic game show rules such as lifelines, you can call a friend or shout out on the street to ask someone for help.  What makes it interesting is that the driver is so funny and the New yorkers itself are soo much fun. No matter what color they are or whether rich or not, male or female, they are all willing to play the game and have a little cash. And they amaze me coz they are pretty smart with some of the hardest questions and the ending is always awesome to watch as they get out of the cab triumphantly with their money. Its the most exciting 40 blocks these passengers ever had. Go check it out. Youll see what I mean.

Cuddly Comfort Pillows

Posted in Others on August 31, 2008 by au13

I saw this product while shopping at Costco with my mom. It comes in a set of 2 and it is just the cuddliest pillow ever. The texture is as soft as a teddy bear and you just want to run your hand/fingers over it. The pillow isnt fully filled and structured and im pretty sure its bad for the neck. Its purpose is really just to be hugged. Like a secuurity blanket for kids but for adults also.  Just watch out for the product number because theres a recall on some products that possibly contains metal debris due to a malfunction in the manufacturing process. Other than that, Ive been using it and hugging it every night. Ill definitely take it with me when i travel also.

Volkswagen GTI

My new car. That is, if the financing works out ok. They found the last one that I wanted in Massachussets and it is now being tranported to NY. I am getting the 4 door, 6 speed manual transmission, Autobahn package (black leather and sunroof). Its got 200hp at least, I am getting it in white (no choice- last leather 4 door car in 2008 model in the whole eastern seaboard). I gotta have the last one. Even if its turning out to be more expensive that I thought but I know buying this car would be for the best. The GTI has a good mpg ratio and it doesnt drink gas when its on idle. My Mustang is killing me everyday with the gas consumption. Being a 2 door isnt practical either. Having a heavy body tires me out after a whole day of driving it. Dont get me wrong, I LOVE MY CAR, i am saddened to have to let it go. But it is just not practical anymore. Whats the point of having a nice car if you can’t drive it everyday. And the good thing about the GTI is that, for insurance purposes it is not considered a sports car. (yey my insurance would go down) But my husband will definitely not let me downgrade to a car that has no kick. So I think I will be happy with it. Ive done Americans, and now Im into Europeans. Still an upgrade. Go V-dub!

IPhone 3G Case

THIS is the reason why I want an Iphone! haha that seems shallow but I love this Disney silicone case made by MOBO. It also comes with a strap (something im dying to have – my palm treo has no holes for a strap). They also have Warner Bros and Winnie the Pooh characters.

Iphone 3G

The new Iphone came out July 11 and I needed a new fone. But obviously I will not stand in line for hours and hours. And by now all Apple stores in NY are sold out. Who knows when they are going to have another shipment. So I will wait. Im definitely not in the rush to pay cancellation fees to my current provider (my contract ends in April 2009) But I have heard a lot of good things about the Iphone. I love its look. Its very light and the programs are very practical and user friendly. I also like the fact that you can see the whole webpage of the internet. And the Ipod Function. The keyboard will probably take time getting used to but im definitely going to miss the actual buttons of the keyboard which makes it easy to text while driving. Lol Which I shouldnt be really texting while driving so this Iphone is definitely ideal. And for the price of $200, im sure id be happy with it for a whole year until a new and better version comes out of course.

Soju is a korean alcoholic drink. It tastes like vodka but a little sweeter. But I am not here to talk about a drink but of another addiction that is slowly eating up the females of my family. My cousin recommended this website and it has a lot of Korean Dramas and movies, even Japanese and Taiwanese. Most of the links are working and you will spend hours and hours in front of your computer reading subtitles. Its very addicting and weekly they add another episode or movie. If you have lots of time to kill, you can check out and be prepared to be entertained.
