They got shoes in every room divided by several cateogories. Funny thing, they put Reebok Pumps in the bathroom next to a poop installation.

If you're thinking "It's a waste if he doesn't wear at least some of the kicks. All of them look like they're in plastic and DS.", then you should pay attention to the rare AM95 he's wearing during the presentation.

Mad beautiful Military Grey Colored New Balance 1400 for J.Crew. And you know what, these are made in the U.S.

The king of kicks: the iconic 1400 sneaker (originally launched in 1994), in never-before-seen custom colors that our design team cooked up in collaboration with New Balance. (Translation: You won't find these versions anywhere else.) After years of being available only in Japan, the model's stateside re-release has been a cause célèbre among connoisseurs. Each pair is crafted in the USA from premium American-made suede at New Balance's Skowhegan, Maine, factory. Run, don't walk—these will go fast. Sneaker inserts. Man-made sole for traction. USA

Continuum - Coat Check Chair

Instead of messy stacks of unused hanger, we should do this, but of course with a proper hanger.
Coat Check is a chair design that seeks to encourage people to hang their coats up properly. The design simply appropriates the plastic hangers and the steel bar from a standard closet and creates a chair from those elements. The idea is to bring these items out into the open to be seen and thus remembered on a daily basis. The chair could be great for house parties or just daily routine. Coat Check also has the potential to be used in women’s clothing boutiques, helping with dressing room organization.

Underwater Bedroom in the Maldives

Insanely beautiful yet must be super creepy at night and i can't imagine if something broke in there.
A little over five years ago, Conrad Maldives Rangali island opened the very first underwater restaurant. Now, to celebrate their anniversary, the restaurant offered guests the chance to dine AND sleep under the sea. The 12 seat restaurant, which lies about 16 feet below sea level of the Indian Ocean, was converted into a private bedroom suite for two, complete with a champagne dinner and breakfast in bed the following morning. The view of the coral reef outside the glass, and the constant flow of marine life all around the guests is definitely a once in a lifetime experience. (Or possibly more than once, if they’re really damn rich and luxurious.)

Tiramisu Affogato at Go!Curry Jakarta

If you thought that Go Curry (Pacific Place & Cilandak Town Square) is all about Curry, then you are wrong. Alongside their delicious curry and nan pizza selections, they also offer some tempting desserts. One of them is this Tiramisu Affogato. I'm always a big fan of Affogato, and i always love a good tiramisu. So to me, this one is pretty good. You can taste to bitterness from the coffee while still mixed with creamy tiramisu feel


Tin Pan Alley

Been here for a couple of times now, and i must say, since the first time i eat here, i instantly hooked right in. Located at Thamrin 9 Building (also known as the UOB Plaza), Tin Pan Alley is an authentic american bistro in Jakarta, serving wide varieties of bistro food which is inspired by American culinary traditions.



Tin Pan alley is know one of my favorite destination to eat. Many selections from sandwiches, steaks and pastas. They also offers several options of dessert and drinks. I will personally recommend you to order the Cajun Fries (A french fries, served with a special cajun sauce), Baked Mac N Cheese (one of the best mac n cheese in town in my opinion), and for the dessert, the apple crumble or the chocolate cake.

It is sad knowing that HBO's "Entourage" has finally coming to its end a their 8th season this year. You might remember the episode where Fukijama made a special pair of Air Force 1 for Turtle? or seeing Turtle's Nike collection on his room? well, Nike together with Entourage (or Turtle) has always been a good thing to see.

Premier Los Angeles skate & sneaker destination Hot Rod teams up with Entourage creator, Doug Ellin, and come up with this beautiful Dunk Low SB design. Black & White colourway, pimped with elephant print, suede and premium leather upper. Bad news is that this is rumoured to be released in a very very limited numbers, maybe even for Friends & Family only (around 50 pairs maybe?)
