24 Hours in Singapore

April 18th, 2009 No comments
Had to do my visa run so i choose Singapore, can do it in a day and considering the financial crunch at the moment, it was the way to go. Way better than Kuala Lumpur as far as scenery but then again, i didnt really get to see much. Walked around a lot, saw mad Chinese people, and of course...ate. I think i averaged about 10 meals in 24 hours, it got a little overboard but as soon as i saw a Burger King shop i dove straight in. Stayed at Sleepy Sam's which is a backpacker place, most definitely clean and worth the money, was in a proper neighborhood too which was even better.

Singapore is ridiculously small. Extremely clean, very manicured, and was my first time back in a big metropolis since a year ago. Need to get outta Bali more often! Contemplated on living there as the nightlife is great (so i heard), food is awesome (which it is), subway system easy to navigate (never get lost), and due to its central location is a great place to jump to other Asian countries. It's also hella expensive so without that great payin jobby-job, don't think i'll be living there anytime soon. Also, has a DOPE airport, which unfortunately is not the way to judge a city but for this trip it was among my "sight-seeing" activities. Oh well....hung out with my homie Stevie G. (who was in town on the same dates for the same thing) and my boy Paul who had DJ Perplex (Aussie 3X DMC Champion) with him as well, nice afternoon of a few Stella Artois and checking out some vinyl finds before the flight home.

Of course got some shopping in too, picked up this great watch (pictured below) for my girl which now i wish was mine....fark.

Ballin’ Review #17 – Nammos Beach Club

April 13th, 2009 No comments
Nammos Beach Club is part of the Karma Kandara Resort family, and happens to be the best beach in Bali voted by...me. It was sorta one of those "secret" beaches that not a lot of people knew about but that will all change in 2009. First off, the infinity pool at the top of the cliffside is what everyone dreams of, the view is absolutely ridiculous and sunset will make your face melt. To get to the beach you have to take a mini-lift that goes 100 meters down the wall of a cliff and shazam, you're there. Words don't do justice to the scenery, you're just gonna have to check it out yourself.

Food is great, the pizza is off the hook and so are the main dishes. They just started a new Evening Asian Rice Menu that has dishes from Indonesia, Vietnam, Korea, India, and Thailand. "Grilled Wagyu Beef Bulgogi"!!! Like I said, ridiculous. Lots of sunset parties being planned for the summer so holler if you're down there, i'll be the one on the beach sippin' bubbly.

Thousand Reasons

April 4th, 2009 No comments
Very dope clothes from Thousand Reasons label straight outta Australia. The boys have their factory here in Bali and I recently was able to DJ for their new 2009 denim collection fashion show at Eikon in Kuta. What a crazy night and even crazier antics, Australians + Beer = Mayhem.... Only on the scene for a few years now, their lines have grown exponentially in both popularity and availability.

Jeans are way too tight for me, I guess growing up a hip hop head has something to do with that but the tshirts and jackets are killin' it in my opinion. Not sure if they've hit the States for my Amurrican buddies (maybe a shop in NYC or LA is carrying it) but as always, the internet solves most of those geographical problems. Special thanks to Dan and Ben, wasn't sure if the birthday pirate party the following night was more chaotic but a good weekend nonetheless.

Rotten Fresh

April 2nd, 2009 No comments
Peep this website for all things interesting regarding events, street wear, fashion, surf, music, eco, art, design, film, photography and books with specific attention given to going ons in the South East Asia Pacific region. Rotten Fresh is an online publication that was created in Bali but reaches all over the world. Especially like their guerrilla style tactics of adverting all over the island, can't go very far without seeing one of their stickers somewhere whether its on a bar stool or in the bathroom. What up Christian!
