Shopping and Street Fighter 4, hell yeah!

While I appreciate the fine clothing at Banana Republic, I think we all agree that it's a little bit overpriced (especially to those who are used to lower prices in the States). Nevertheless, when I see something I like, mesti beli! As you can see, the fine details and workmanship on the polo... very nice and at the very least cheaper than Lacoste or PRL equivalents. And I have some discount vouchers to use... yay!

On another note, there's a relatively new cuff link and tie shop in 1 Utama. It's called Cuffz. Some interesting items can be found there. Prices are not too bad and the service is good.

I could not resist the rhodium plated Transformer cuff links :)

On YET ANOTHER note, Shanghai Tang opens its doors at Pavilion KL. I've been highly anticipating its launch for a while especially since I did not get to visit their branch in Singapore on my last trip there.

Their paper bag is so wonderfully colourful.

And they have nicely printed receipts...

I wanted to get one of their Genghis Khan polos but the choice of sizes in the colour I wanted was not available and also those in other colours, did not fit quite well. So I got myself another item with those mandarin collars which I so love (I have a few shirts tailored with those collars as well).

Again, prices are a little bit on the high side. Hope sales will come soon. In any case, they gave extra buttons in a small paper envelope but I actually prefer these sewed onto the shirt inside label (dunno what those are called) somewhere inside so as not to lose them.

On another insanely happy note, I am glad that Street Fighter 4 has finally been announced by Capcom. It brings tears to my eyes and shivers down my spine. Can't believe it's 20 years since I first played the first Street Fighter!

Fuck yeah! Hadoken, hadoken, hadoken.... Shin-shoryuken!
