I attended the official opening of the Zeiss Vision Center located at the Pavilion KL shopping centre here in downtown Kuala Lumpur a few days ago. If you are not aware, Carl Zeiss Vision is a market leader in the field of optics and lenses. You will find the Zeiss products in cameras too and they have been at making precision glass for a very, very long time.

Now this is something a little different that belongs to me. Those that collect Parker would find this one of the unique fountain pens from the renown pen maker - the Parker 61. This was a pen, when first introduced in 1956 had a tagline ' Unlike Any Pen In The World...or Any Other'. You can see it in the photograph above.

What are Go-to-Hell Pants? Actually, it encompasses more than just the trousers if you put it down to brightly coloured (and embroidered) articles of clothing that one could wear as casualwear. The most famous of them all are the Go-to-Hell (GTH) pants. Here, in the video below where I try review a Porsche Panamera with a friend, I am wearing a pair by Brooks Brothers GTH trousers with birds embroidered on them, that famous American brand noted for making these sort of trousers (well, I prefer calling them trousers).

Friendship Day. This is another Hallmark Cards creation to boost their sales. Much like that Mother's Day, Father's Day, Uncle's Day, Groundhog Day or Sit at Home and Sleep Day cards that we all buy. Some of these cards I made up but you get the point. But it is about sharing a greeting to someone. So friendship day, usually celebrated on the first sunday of August is a time where one can gift a friend something nice - watch retailer Red Army Watches supposedly have a few timepieces or watches for that thought.

Bags: Of Thrifting at the Local Thrift/Bundle Stores & the LL Bean weekend duffle bag I recently bought
Thrifting at the thrift shops or what they call 'Kedai Bundle' here in Malaysia is actually one of the best ways to procure hard to find clothing, shoes, bags and other accessories. Now 'kedai' means shop, and bundle is from the bundles where used clothes are bundled together and then sold at stores like this, giving new life to used items. I have to admit that I occasionally frequent these stores from time to time. It is usually when I am on the look out for something unique or hard to find here in Malaysia.
