Comfy Kicks

Written by admin on December 2, 2009 – 4:49 pm -

Before coming to India I wanted to get a new pair of kicks, something that I would have to worry about keeping clean all the time. I also wanted one that was militarily inspired as I have to let go airsofting.

I had my eyes set on Merrell’s Sawtooth hiking boot. After trying it on, my better half didn’t like it, she said it made my legs look really thin especially when wearing shorts. The deal breaker was it wasn’t waterproof.

The sales associate then whipped out a pair of Merrell Chameleon II Stretch hiking shoes. It wasn’t exactly what I had in mind but I did like that shape of the shoe.

I tried it on, and it fit like a glove. No laces to worry about with this shoe as its got a self locking cinch. The shoe was breathable and waterproof at the same time thanks to its gore-tex lining. The vibram sole had a pretty good grip but I’d be a bit careful when the surface your treading on is wet.

I’ve been using it for over a month now and its fully worn in and it feels great. Great for the the dusty roads in India. We’ll have to wait for the next monsoon season before I can field test this shoe in wet weather conditions.

Surprise gift

Written by admin on May 23, 2008 – 7:49 am -

It was my birthday a few weeks ago and my kids surprised me with a gift today. After arriving home from watching Indiana Jones today I proceeded straight to my desk and there I found a gift wrapped box. The funny thing is that I called my kids about noon telling them to meet me at the COEX where we would watch Indiana Jones 4. What I didn’t know at the time was that my son was already at the COEX buying me the gift, so he rush back home to pick his younger brother up to return to the COEX to meet me. 

When my kids arrived here about a month ago they noticed that I was using my mobile phone as an alarm clock and that there were no clocks at home so they both decided to get me an iPod speaker alarm clock. The Ozaki iMini functions as an FM radio, iPod speaker and charger, and alarm clock. You can set the alarm to trigger a bell, FM radio or your play your iPod at a preset time. Sound quality from its two speakers on both sides of the cube are decent but don’t expect any chest thumping bass from it. The best thing I like about this speaker is that I don’t have to take my iPod out of its case to hook it up.
