see what i've found frm some jap online shopping site!
i thought they look damn amusing i kept laughing to myself like a retard. the monkey is seriously lame. i wouldnt mind getting one for myself (not for the purpose it was made for, but more for its lameness/cuteness) if it were cheaper. both the nailclipping & blowing thing cost frigging $19.90 each?!
when i told my mum about it she was like, hmm.. it says about the degree of laziness of the japs right. lol i agree. but more like they're too free to even come up with these huh
which reminds me....
a very cool fact here:
my korean boy tutee actually has a ROBOT at his korean home (!!) his father is a scientist and according to him, their home robot is designed by his father himself. now HOW COOL IS THAT?!!? but it sounds pretty useless to me, since the robot's main function is to: -
(i) open the door when there're visitors
(ii) make & serve drink when
he it's asked to
but the cool thing here is that, you can instruct the robot by words la. not like 'Press here for tea' and 'Press here for coffee' kind. lol imagine being greeted by A ROBOT when u press the doorbell? and then it says, "Hi. My master is not around, please come back in 43 mins and 16 seconds.." !!!!! freaking hell haha.
but apparently his mum said the majority of koreans have robots at home. mostly are those small ones that move on the floor, used for cleaning purposes. only a small fraction will have the standing and walking kind of robots.. ahhh freaky. i wonder when will we start having robots at home too? laziness X 1000000
then im sure the japanese have home robots as well.

lol. was just circulating this email in my office.
haizz. the reason behind the perpetuation of human laziness in the 21st century.
look at the pic below, COOL HUR.
it's NOT an animated pic btw.
when ur eyes focus on one circle, that circle stops spinning.
and i got an interesting reply from martin:
"The trick here is, do not focus on any circles at all!"
well, i tried to do that but it barely lasted for a few seconds before i focused back on one of the circles again.
lol, the perplexity of the human brain.
on a sidenote, here's a small little dedication to
me and chian's newfound love (i kind of got over the fetish already tho i still find him cute when he's acting):
i swear i did sort of despise myself for a minute or two when the thought 'ohman he's cute!' flashed across my mind. years ago he was only qualifed to be my mum's idol, not mine.
chian, this says something...
we're getting OLD :S
