I was an ex-smoker.
I feel more socially responsible for people around me and my loved ones.
I cherish their health as much as I cherish mine.
The Finer Details
The "Timbuk2" trademark is the 'spiral logo' as well as the 'reflective tail straps'. The exterior of the bag is made with high quality Cordura (a nylon fabric from DuPont). The high thread count makes the surface of the bag waterproof. The main flap with three distinctive panels (usually in multi-coloured), is secured with two strips of velcro as well as two plastic clips. The reflective tail straps are secured to another set of clips. The rear bottom of the bag has two metal D-rings for fixing the cross-strap. The cross-strap is intended for securing the bag to the body while 'riding the bicycle or running for bus'. The interior of the bag is lined with a thick waterproof inner lining. A cable tie secures the triangular yellow hook which is intended for hanging the bag on the proprietary rack in retail outlets. Some retailers will cut it away, but most users will keep the hook as another iconic feature of "Timbuk2" bags. The Cam Buckle adjusts the length of the strap to match the height of the user.
There are many compartments (13) in this deceivingly small messenger bag.
(1) Main compartment accomodating an A4 folder, (2) zipper pocket, (3) business card clear pocket, (4) pocket, (5) wide pen pocket, (6) pen pocket, (7) pen pocket, (8) fleece-lined cellphone pocket, (9) large zipper pocket, (10) pocket, (11) pocket, (12) zipper pocket, (13) pocket.
Inside pocket #9, there is a key hook attached to a red strap (A).
"Timbuk2" Classic Messenger bags are made to be worn. Though there are different designs with multi-colored tri-panels, solid black will be suited for both casual and formal attires. Furthermore, black is alway cool!
Many thanks to 'cam-whoring' Mr.MBB for flaunting this bag.
I initially do not have the intention to get myself a "TIMBUK2" Classic Messenger bag as it was already a very common sight in the streets. However, when this special promotional price came about, I got myself tempted. Furthermore, it is the right size that I had been wanting, good for day-to-day use. When I put it on, I felt that it was made for me. When I felt its texture, I was immediately sold by its quality. "TIMBUK2" bags are just too cool to be missed! Together with the free shoulder padding that I got, I believe it is an unbeatable deal to start the GSS!
Finally, thanks to Fio for buying this bag as a gift for me. Fio has been great sponsoring all my cool bags!
If you haven't gotten a "TIMBUK2" bag, grab one today and join the trendy cool league!

Pumpkin, Carrot and Yam cake (kueh)
Traditional savoury steamed kuehs with real chunks of soft pumpkin (golden), white radish (white) and yam (purple), topped with white sesame and fried shallots.
There has been an increasing number of traditional Chinese desserts stalls sprouting up in the Chinatown area. "Ji De Chi" (记得吃) is one of the popular stalls that had a decent league of foodie fans. The stall that I visited is along Liang Seah Street (opposite Bugis Junction), where the famous "Ah Chew Desserts" (阿秋甜品) is located as well. Despite the stiff competition, both dessert stalls thrive as Singaporeans yearn for a taste of 'grandma's home-made' desserts.
The desserts at "Ji De Chi" are reasonably priced and benchmarked against competitors. So it all boils down to taste. I have tried both dessert stalls along Liang Seah Street and "Ji De Chi" definitely deserves two thumbs up. The desserts served are suitable for weight-watchers and the health-conscious. So anyone can just indulge without feeling any sin.
