It's basically an old magazine shop and holds heaps and mounds of treasure for those who don't mind judging books by its covers. You see, every magazine is wrapped and sealed in clear plastic so you never get to flip through it like you would at a regular magazine store.
Most of the magazines there are back issues of foreign titles from the US, Australia or Europe and are never ever found in any other bookstore. I usually pick out the ones I like, and note their titles and then rush back to Google them to see if they're worth buying.
So when I spot an issue that's two months old, it goes to the top of my list cause that's practically brand new! The best part is, what would usually cost RM28-RM40 would only be beetween RM9.90-RM15.90. That's a steal!!!
It's still a lot to pay for a magazine but I supposed it's better than waiting 10 years to buy a copy of "Best Hairstyles of 2011" for RM5 (also sold at Giant Hypermarkets)
Well today, I was browsing through the shelves and they had just been recently restocked and I stumble accross a REALLY beautiful magazine cover by Vogue Australia Entertaining + Travel.
I've never known Vogue to have an Entertaining + Travel mag so i bought it and I'm just amazed at every page! The colours, the composition, the layout, the content! I'm dying at every page turn. Gosh! IT'S BEAUTIFUL!!!!

I was just poking around online and I came across this wonderful band called Little Joy. Just their name alone is pretty and they're sorta amazing!
Little Joy is a Brazilian/American rock band formed in 2007 by Los Hermanos singer/guitarist Rodrigo Amarante, The Strokes drummer Fabrizio Moretti and Binki Shapiro.
'Next Time Around' is just the perfect tune as I get ready to leave for the beach at the end of the week! :D

I just came across this song by The Audreys - a band from Adelaide, Australia and it's hauntingly beautiful~
They're a bit folksy and bluesy and although their earlier music sounds a little too dreary for my liking, this new album seems pretty promising!

In an attempt to be more observant, I'm starting a new Tuesday segment dedicated to the world around me. I'll be observing three things which are interesting and bringing them to life here, so you can imagine with me.
As i drive to work along the MEX expressway, I arrive at a bend which always takes my breath away. It's my first glimpse of the KL Cityscape set before cool blue skies and cotton candy clouds. At one particular spot, KL Tower lines up with Times Square and KLCC and sometimes it’s these little architectural marvels that get me excited about working in the big city.
Chivalry is not dead in this big City. Today I saw a young man offer his brolly to two of his female colleagues while he walked ahead in the pelting rain towards his office (I assume) in Bukit Bintang.
It's funny what you overhear in the streets if only you will yourself to stop and listen. A girl in an incredibly short skirt wonders aloud, "What's the difference between pink and neon pink and what's fuchsia?" to which her Goth friend responds, "Who cares... they're all colours I will not ever wear."

Now this would be the perfect theme song for my Monday morning! I sooo don't wanna be at The Big Corporation today after the lazy weekend I've had... but owhwell...
Sugarland is fast becoming my happy-feel-good band and everyone could do with a lil' bit country now and then. Sugarland consists of singer–songwriters Jennifer Nettles (lead vocals) and Kristian Bush (background vocals, lead vocals, mandolin, acoustic guitar, and harmonica).
Jennifer does this 'Shaggy' impersonation in some of her songs which i absolutely love! Check out some of their live concerts too. Looks real fun! Now what are the chances of Sugarland making an appearance in Malaysia? hmm....
