The Beautiful People

jerine beach

I’m an Aries and have strong attributes related to that horoscope. It describes me down to a T. We like beautiful things. Now, beauty is in the eye of the beholder and all that and there are many beautiful things in the world.

Yes, this is what comes into mind for most guys but there are beauty in other things too.





Heck, there is even beauty to be found in random notes on a toilet door in a 10 room shared home. πŸ˜‰


However, the thing I admire the most is the design skillz that people have. I just don’t have the necessary creativity with art as I do with the written word. I’m constantly amazed by the stuff that people can come up with.

This is the Best Entry in the Dell Design Studio contest. Titled “Old Style” by Amirul Hasrie it features an abstract pattern which reminds me of the concrete jungle juxtaposed with hues of green in an attempt to re-conciliate nature with the big city. He walks away with vouchers and a Dell Design Studio laptop with his design on it. How cool is that?


The other winner is the design by Sin Ong Toh called simply “Dell“. It has a very Zen feel to it with the budding lotus flowers. He won the Most Popular Design by Votes and I can certainly see why. It’s a photograph with post production elements that garnered him 333 votes.

Dell has a new range of laptops to cater to every person and the current one features a partnership with OPI, producing a series that matches your notebook to your nail color. I’m particularly intrigued by the “I’m Not Really a Waitress” design:


This design called 100 Years in NY by Deanne Cheuk is awesome too!


The Dell Studio 15 laptop is not just a pretty face but has plenty of horse power under the facade, with up to Intel Core i7 Quad-Core processors with a nifty 15.6″ 16:9 aspect ratio LED screen and other features like Blu-ray, mobile broadband and surround sound complete with sub woofer built in.


I’m quite tempted by the laptops coz it has both beauty and brains and comes at a reasonable price tag to boot! It’s very convenient to buy Dell coz they have been offering online purchases since Time Immemorial (TM).

I remember buying a Dell tower PC back when I was 14. This was in the heydays of e-commerce and understandably, my dad had reservations about using a credit card to make purchases online. How the times have changed, you’ll think of purchases online first before buying from a brick and mortar shop nowadays.

  1. I’m half way doing my assignment. Hey would it be okay for me to let you read my assignment?
    I need someone who is alien to the subject to read it…
    My sister and flat mate can’t do it for me cos I ramble about it all the time.

  2. I am an art teacher, that winning design “Old Style” is a Piet Mondrian artwork that has been recolored. the original work is in the primary colors red, blue, and yellow. That winning design is plagarism…do a simple google image search for Piet Mondrian artwork and you will see…..

  3. KY: Yeah, love the designs, especially the special designs. πŸ™‚
    Diana: The collaberation between them and O.P.I. is groundbreaking! Never thought of a notebook company having a design based on nail polish. πŸ™‚

  4. Simon Seow: Haha! Well, Dell is awesome, my second PC was ordered from Dell. A Pentium II, damn old skool. Rhymes too. πŸ™‚

  5. To all the beautiful people following your blogs… Can someone help? I need to rent a room / 1 bedroom apartment for about 1 month…budget around RM1000. 27th April 2010 till 23rd May 2010. For 1 person for 2 weeks and then 2 person for the remaining stay. Need to have easy access to KL city centre…either walking distance or LRT. I hope you can help….Actually.. Pls pls pls help!!! hahaha Cheers!!!! and you two make a lovely couple!!!!

  6. Social Stranger: Hmm…renting for one month might be difficult but not impossible. I know some condo owners who rents out by month for people on long vacations but those are all in PJ. Good luck!

  7. HB: Jz a note to Social Stranger: I was in real estate be4.
    Budget RM2700 and u can get one in Bukit Bintang for a month, RM1000? No such luck. Not for walking distance to LRTs. And not for one month.
    Back to yr article: Another well written one! ;0)
    I have no talent w words nor creative. Die la. 9-5 job for the rest of my life dear… *sobs*

  8. Social Stranger: Save your money and just stay at the bus stop at Bukit Bintang. Kill two birds with one stone.
    HB: What’s the go with sun bathing? Seriously, does tanning make a chick hotter? Then may as well sit in a bath tub full of tea. I still think pale/fair is cuter.
    Ever seen a sub burnt chick with pink tits? Just looks weird. ha ha ha

  9. Thanks. πŸ™‚ It’s still in the drafting stage. So be patient yeah. I’ll probably finish it by saturday. You just need to tell me if you can understand the whole of it or not.
    If you can’t, I’ll fix it.

  10. thenomadGourmand: No la, I find your posts interesting too! I don’t know I guess I love reading and writing so this comes naturally to me. Glad you enjoyed reading! πŸ™‚
    rocket: Hmm…I wouldn’t know coz I don’t get a tan. I just get sunburnt. Whenever I go out in the sun for prolonged periods of time, I go all red and my skin peels. πŸ™‚
    Michelle: Okay, looking forward to it! πŸ™‚
    No worries, take your time, I’ll give you feedback when I get it. πŸ™‚
    sjc: Nope it’s in Magellan Sutera Harbor in Kota Kinabalu. I was there for a vacation. πŸ™‚
    Social Stranger: No worries! Glad the others could help. Or you can live outside KL city (say in PJ), that could help with your budget. LRTs can bring you to the city. πŸ™‚

  11. Do u have any recommendations? Cos’ I dun really know KL that well… I need to access the MCA building for a UK visa application…which is the main reason why I’m going to KL… anyway, thanks to everyone… it’s been informative…

  12. debbie: Oh, that’s Jerine! πŸ™‚
    Social Stranger: Hmm…I suggest you stay outside KL for cheaper rent and then take the LRT and then a cab for your UK visa application. Cheers! πŸ™‚

  13. Very nice article and straight to the point. I don’t know if this is really the best place to ask but do you folks have any thoughts on where to hire some professional writers? Thank you πŸ™‚

  14. I cling on to listening to the news bulletin talk about getting free online grant applications so I have been looking around for the top site to get one. Could you tell me please, where could i find some?
