Your 5 minutes of life is better spent watching my video. - Narcissism is Necessary

Your 5 minutes of life is better spent watching my video.

I found the latest Gisele Bundchen ipanemas at 1 Utama and bought two pairs! I’m playing smart now, I figure by the time I wear out the 2nd pair, the new designs would have come out and so I wouldn’t need to search for them like a mad woman anymore. They’re the most comfortable and durable footwear I’ve ever worn!!

Gisele Bundchen G2B ipanemas.
My babies :)

The electricity suddenly got cut off today. Went to Secret Recipe to work from 11am to 4.30pm. They didn’t have wifi, so thank goodness for 3G. I brought my phone charger too so that the phone won’t die one me half way.


After work…I dropped by the neighbourhood stationary shop to get these tubes of magic. Currently, my favourite thing to play.

Plastic Bubble.
Once pop, you can’t stop.

Eh, they are not edible. In fact I’ve made a video of how to use them.

Check it out, it’s more than 5 minutes of goodness and it’s SAFE FOR WORK!

Did you watch from the start till the end?

    Hi there, just wondering, how much is a pair of Ipanemas in Malaysia? It costs about AUD40 here in Melb, and if it’s cheaper back in M’sia, I’ll just wait to get mine when I get home :)

    The Ipanemas look comfy. Are they bank breakingly expensive?

  6. Kimberlycun April 2, 2008 at 9:34 am #

    crysv: thanks v :) yeah nostalgic, isnt it :)

    simon: it was edible. hehe shows your age, aye??

    fishfish: lol i hope it’s 5 mins well spent! lol thanks :)

    time: i got mine for RM69.90 a pair. def cheaper than melb…but don’t wait too long! even when i was buying they seemed to have ran out of certain colours and sizes!

    paris: 69.90 for a pair now cause it’s still new. but i could wear em for anything and they seem to last forever.

    Well, the ‘demo’ is done too seriously. Hehe! Like how our science teachers demo experiments in labs in those days.

    I recalled we love to smack the whole bubble onto the head/face of ourselves/friends as punishment for losing some games/bets when we were kids.

    omg, that must be the funniest video on how to do a double bubble ever. i always used to make a hole in the 1st bubble and then stick the 2nd time and blow the other bubble inside. not every successful tho :(

  16. anon April 2, 2008 at 7:53 pm #

  18. Dabido April 2, 2008 at 9:22 pm #

    Heya!!! When I tried to play the video it said:
    This video is no longer available.
    What did you do? Insult a politician or something??? :-)

    [Of course, I’m worried something might pop up saying my comment is no longer available too].

  19. Kimberlycun April 2, 2008 at 11:57 pm #

    kristine: lol funny meh? eh if u made a hole in the 1st it will shrink what…

    anon: you work for ipanema or something???

    3point8: wah….

    dabido: eh it’s available! maybe you insulted a politician or something? :)

  20. Nicholas Chhan April 3, 2008 at 1:35 am #

    Woo… All this while I’ve been taking out the straw wrongly. And I’ve used so much more goop (spelling?) to make a single bubble – 1 tube doesn’t last long :(

  21. Kimberlycun April 3, 2008 at 10:39 am #

    nicholas: my mom taught me to use my lips to seal the balloon right after pulling out the straw. then i saw someone doing it this way and it looked way better than fumbling to kiss the balloon hehe

  22. Nicholas Chhan April 3, 2008 at 10:57 am #

    My mom thought me to use my lips too. However, I used to pinch (staple) it with my fingers. Kinda feel like getting some now :D Didn’t know it’s still around.

  23. Kristine April 3, 2008 at 3:31 pm #

    but if ur careful and make a tiny hole and quickly insert the other one and then seal the hole, theoretically it shld work :P

  24. Dabido April 3, 2008 at 8:28 pm #

    I did insult a politician. In fact, I keep insulting them. :-) Isn’t that they’re job? To get insulted????

    Okay, I’ve seen the video. Guess what? I got all excited and ran into the lounge room and said to my mother, ‘Guess what? Remember when I was a kid in Penang and I used to make those bubbles out of that bubble maker stuff?’
    My mother just gave me a weird look and went, ‘Yeah. So?’ lol

    It’s not available in Australia. I wonder if it’s toxic???
