Live for today, deal with it tomorrow!

coin toss

I just got a pair of adidas Originals jeans right before I was about to fly back to Sibu for the Mid Autumn Festival and an epiphany just came to me – I’ll wear the jeans during the entire 5D/4N stay in Sibu.

The fact that I haven’t packed no doubt contributed to this decision. smirk

adidas originals denims

This pair of denims is a low crotch and slim leg selection from the adidas Originals Collection and is very aptly called the Mad Cab Skinny Fit jeans. It looks like a crazed genius designer cut apart two pairs of jeans and stitched them back together in segments, much like a caterpillar.

The effect comes off as extremely hip (no pun intended) – it has that edgy, urban look that I don’t have in my entire denim attire.

Well, I’ve been told that I’ve been losing weight…in fact, almost EVERYONE who sees me says I’m skinnier right about now. Allow me to let you in on a little secret. I was just afraid that I won’t fit into the jeans so I started to eat less. I asked for a size 30 and to the best of my memory I haven’t worn a size 30 since college. Heh.

crash

Okay, I’m kidding, I didn’t go on a crash diet or anything, in fact, I don’t know why I’ve lost weight. Like Cindy says, perhaps the most apt word is that I “ter-lose weight”. That’s Manglish (and a newly coined word to boot) for losing weight without realizing it.

mad cab skinny fit

I know I can fit into a size 30 so thus begin my chronicles. I’m sure you don’t want to see me in various camwhore poses so I’ll focus on the jeans instead. ;)

mad cab fit

Mine comes in black and is very distinctive – there are little details all around the jeans that I really like.

plane

It’s very comfortable too. I didn’t sleep before my flight coz I had to finish everything before I came back to my hometown so I took a two hour nap on the plane. The ground staff that attended to me was kind enough to reserve the entire aisle for me. The conversation went a little like this:

Check-in counter: Would you like a window seat or an aisle seat, sir?
Me: Can I have both so I can sleep on the plane?
Check-in counter: Sure.

Trust me, I am just as surprised as you are. She put me in the middle seat and blocked off both seats at the side so I can recline completely on the Boeing. Bliss.

You just can’t go wrong with a pair of jeans. I’ve worn it out to casual lunches and nights out and I’ve gotten interested comments about the unique design of the Mad Cab Fit.

Someone actually asked me where I got it when I was out for drinks. Heh.

lunch

Well, another great “feature” of the black pair of denims is that if you accidentally drop some food on it, you’ll just need to brush it off…

oops

…and it’s as good as new.

no stain

You won’t even see a stain. :)

me

I went EVERYWHERE wearing this. I also got my hair cut, washed and colored (it was an impromptu decision) and I think my old t-shirt from my university days living on campus in Melbourne sums it up.

adidas originals

That’s the spirit of the adidas Originals line of denims and this Mad Cab Fit is becoming a fast favorite of mine already. It’s comfortable and cool, which are two words you don’t usually see in the same sentence.

trick shot

…and yes, I really sunk this trick shot. :)

3, 2, 1, Action!

adidas action 3 roadshow

adidas is the main sponsor of Project Alpha and I headed down to their adidas Action 3 Roadshow at MidValley on Saturday with the other six bloggers in Season 1 for some fun and games and a sneak preview of the first episode of Project Alpha

adidas chick

Thus, in classic sixthseal.com fashion, here’s the event coverage, which completely violates every single rule of writing for the net with extremely verbose copy and frequent asides. ;) 

adidas roadshow

So, go brew a nice hot cup of tea and settle down with a comfy cushion, this is going to be a long one. :) 

action 3 girl

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. 

first arrival

I’m kidding! Okay, here it comes: 

adidas games

I’ve always been a big fan of adidas and most of my sports apparel is exclusively adidas (which is spelled in all small caps, BTW). I think a lot of it had to do with them being the “alternative cool” brand instead of the overhyped other label. 

action 3 ball

I’m also a huge fan of Korn and the song a.d.i.d.a.s in their self titled debut album, while not sanctioned or related to the brand, is a very awesome song. ;)

adidas bonus hour

The road show was held at LG of Centre Court (God is in the details, my friends, and I wouldn’t feel proper without providing excessive minutiae) and I happened to arrive during Bonus Hour so the place was PACKED. It was so crowded I won’t even attempt to make witty analogies. The Bonus Hour really lasts for one hour (thus the namesake) and is a PWP promo (buy 1, free 1) so it brought a influx of people much like what Pakistan experienced when the US bombed the living daylights out of the Afghans. 

adidas roadshow buying

Anyway, after everything settled down, the Project Alpha sneak peak was shown on the LCD TV. I was so enthralled by the trailer and promo for Episode 1 that I didn’t take any photos. I’m telling you, Project Alpha is going to be a hit, and I’m not just saying that coz I’m in it. :p 

project alpha teaser

We were split up into teams for a foosball tournament after the screening – the 7 Project Alpha Season 1 bloggers and Jojo Struys in a 4 team knockout competition of 6 goals. I was paired with the 4′ 9″ wonder (which you’ll see in the first episode). 

foosball attack

It started out very promisingly with several consecutive goals, including a rather neat trick which I attribute more to luck than skill. Sam even commented that I was a “foosball hustler” which I took as a compliment. Alas, everything went downhill since that providential shot. 

foosball defend

The Red MummyBudiey crew started gaining on us and the FourfeetnineSixthseal team did the unimaginable – an own goal. This is bad…hell, if I were Andrés Escobar, I’ll be shot dead by now. :( 

foosball team

Nevertheless, we pushed on while The Enemy (TM) started closing the gap until we were tied 5-5. 

foosball concentrate

It’s damn kan cheong okay! 

foosball kancheong

It was the game ball and after much effort and twisting of the handles…they scored. I can’t believe we lost after a 5-1 lead! OMG!  My bad Aud! 

foosball prize

Oh well, at least we still got a prize. :) 

adidas voucher

Adidas also provided us with a RM 100 voucher which can be used to redeem anything from the roadshow. I decided to stock up on the adidas shampoo + shower gel combos and I got 9 (nine) bottles of that. (!) Haha! 

adidas shower gel

I’ve sorted out my shower needs for the rest of the year! Yay! I’ll never have to buy shower gel until 2010 (at the very least). Heh! This is budgeting at its very best. ;) 

adidas game prize

The adidas Action 3 roadshow had this contraption which has 1-5 in huge buttons. You get a chance on it after a purchase of RM 45 and above. There are prizes associated with each number – everything from bags to eau de toilette. I was keen on the bag and Agnes was kind enough to tell me that she’ll sort it out. I pressed the button and got a 5 (eau de toilette) but she gave me the bag anyway. Thanks Agnes! =D 

project alpha bloggers

It was just about buka puasa time and adidas arranged for us to dine at Alexis in The Gardens. Now, this isn’t a buffet line setup, mind. This is proper dining with you ordering a la carte with wine provided. 

alexis at gardens

I thought that was mighty generous of adidas. 

chicken liver pate

I had chicken liver pate for the appetizer. I liked this; the chicken liver pate is smooth and creamy and comes with a topping of cheese. It’s perfect for slathering on top of the bread or just eating it on its own. I love liver pate and Alexis does it well – the almost melt-in-your-mouth texture is orgasmic! 

wagyu ribeye steak

This here is a deliciously juicy and rich medium rare Wagyu ribeye steak with perfect marbling which weighs in at a staggering RM 155 for the 200 gram serving. 

waygu steak

It’s smooth and velvety, awesome stuff. It could have been done better though; I’ve had Wagyu beef which was crispy on the outside and nicely rare on the inside. I guess they mistook medium rare for medium.

pecan pie

I also had a Pecan pie. It tasted absolutely fabulous despite the fact that I was stuffed at this point. The nuts were warm (almost toasty hot!) and sweet (the pine sweetness of nuts without additional sugar) which contrasts very well with the scoop of premium vanilla ice cream. 

adidas dinner

I nearly fell asleep after all that good food. 

dinner at alexis

The dinner was courtesy of the largess of adidas. Thanks! I won’t be able to afford a RM 155 steak otherwise. ;)

adidas – all day I dream about steak. :p

Adidas Ultimate Frisbee Regulation Disc 175 g

adidas ultimate frisbee

I noticed a Frisbee shaped product in the adidas store last time I went in and was intrigued by the packaging. It’s an Ultimate Frisbee regulation disc (175 grams) and it retails for RM 19.90.

adidas regulation disc

I don’t play Ultimate Frisbee, though I’ve heard of it, but long
time readers of sixthseal.com would know that I’m an easy sell,
especially when it comes with nifty packaging, so I got one (though for
what purpose, I couldn’t ascertain at the time of purchase). ;)

adidas ultimate frisbee back

The Ultimate Frisbee regulation disc weighs 175 grams
and comes enclosed in a black adidas cardboard enclosure. It’s a
relatively light flying disc that has matte black coating and the
adidas logo prominently displayed on the front of the disc.

adidas ultimate frisbee rules

There are printed rules and regulations about the Ultimate Frisbee
game (“rumored to be a non-contact sport”) and it sounds interesting
enough, but considering I don’t play Ultimate Frisbee and don’t even
know why I got it in the first place – a (timely) revelation came to me
last night and I put it to good use:

Ultimate Ketamine! ;)

It’s an extreme form of ketamine insufflation (works with any white
powder actually e.g. coke, ketamine, insert your favorite sinus
delivery drug) where the matte black disc surface is used as a platform
for snorting ketamine instead of the usual mirror since the contrast
pretty much works the same. Heh!

More on Ultimate Ketamine soon – I’m totally bushed today, I just got off work at 9 pm…
