Scholl Shoes Autumn Winter 2012 Collection

Personally I've never tried on Scholl shoes, until recently when an opportunity arise after my last shoe was too worn out to wear. More photos of my previous shoe's condition further down this post.

Philips Aquatouch AT890: Versus My Shaving Blade #Philips50Shaves

Week 3 of using this Philips Aquatouch AT1890 electric shaver, and I would say I'm might pleased with it.

Cedar On 15 Impiana KLCC

The name of this restaurant located at Impiana KLCC reminded me of the current trend for high-end restaurants named after the floor they're located at, each of them having a beautiful sky view. Cedar On 15 was no different, a rather luxurious restaurant setting serving fine western fare with a pretty KLCC view.
