Morning After: Walk of No Shame

Going back home the morning after a wild night with the look that everybody can tell? Now AMP  Energy drink salutes the walk of shame with their new tv ad. It does make you feel better after you had sex with a stranger and going back home the next morning doesn’t it? I can totally see this turned into a musical, “Walk of No Shame.”

Blog to Death?

A few weeks ago, Russell Shaw, a prolific blogger on technology subjects who died at 60 of a heart attack. In December, another tech blogger, Marc Orchant, died at 50 of a massive coronary. A third, Om Malik, 41,survived a heart attack in December.

According to this article by New York Times, many bloggers are suffering from sleep disorders, exhaustion and other types of non-stop strain of producing blog entries.

To make you feel better, it also says “To be sure, there is no official diagnosis of death by blogging, and the premature demise of two people obviously does not qualify as an epidemic. There is also no certainty that the stress of the work contributed to their deaths. But friends and family of the deceased, and fellow information workers, say those deaths have them thinking about the dangers of their work style.”

So I guess we don’t have to worry, yet.

Forget about entertainment, it’s all about “paintertainment” now. Meili-Melo Ltd’s Living Arts Cafe started as an ad hoc freestyle group painting party, and has now developed into a highly successful creative services company with a list of major corporate clients, including Hermes. You will be given a 85 x 120 cm canvas, unlimited acrylic paint, sponges, brushes and spatulas and the rest is up to you.

Unlimited healthy juice drinks are supplied but my friends and I usually bring our own alcohol to help stimulate the flow of creative juices.

Coffee Assembly: More than coffee

Felix Wong, the owner of Cafe Corridor who is famous for its Latte Art, is definitely more than a coffee junkie. Other than meticulously selecting and carefully roasting its beans at its own facilities, Coffee Assembly provides a wide range of coffee related services such as event catering and coffee workshop.

As a coffee junkie, Wong doesn’t just crave for the drink, but its related products too. His coffee related collection includes a rare antique, La Peppina espresso machine from the 60s. According to the man, once he feels like he has enough historical coffee related artifacts, he will open a coffee museum for all the other coffee lovers out there.
