Crocs Footwear and Cool Designs

posted by constance

I was in the mall recently and there was a design exhibition on Crocs footwear. Years ago, Crocs was very popular (still is!) and everyone wanted one. The demand was so good there were even fake ‘Crocs’ on sale at less than $6.00 in the markets, those Made in China copycats.

It was great for outdoor and in places near the pool, beach and is comforatable to wear. However the only thing that alerted many parents and public is that these shoes can be dangerous if they are worn on escalators as they are soft and flexible to be pulled into the escalator trappings at the side. Some kids apparently have had toes pulled in and some reported mangled toes and other foot injuries.

However, Crocs remain a popular footgear for many till today. We do need to understand that even if we don’t wear Crocs, other shoes or slippers may tend to get caught in the trappings too. It is about knowing how to spot the dangers and self responsibility when you buy any product. We can’t blame the shoe manufacturer if we want to wear shoes that are not meant for certain conditions or enviroment. Like wearing a shoe with plastic base on oily surface. We are bound to slip of course. Also if you are on the escalator, we definitely should be putting our feet right in the center of the steps and not move near dangerous spots.

A pair of Crocs may not come cheap but they certainly are very comfy and is safe in places like poolside and slippery grounds. I saw they even have Crocs handbag, very cool actually. That would be so perfect for marketing and beach too!

The Designing Competition displayed some very interesting Crocs design.

Check out these Crocs!

Puffer fish theme

Durian Crocs! Very Original!

How about a Green Theme?

Sweet Candy Crocs! I like it!

Hmm.. I wonder if this theme is more Christmas, Chinese New Year or Chinese Wedding..

Hahahaha Crocs for Tarzan? ohhhhhhh ehhhhhhhhhhhh ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

Pretty Candy theme, I think. Flowers and Lollies..

I like this best! Colour Palette!!! Artists in France can have this on their feet!
hehehe So Cute this one!

Don’t you think those shoes were creative?

and now, these below are the amateurs…heeheehee

Besides this professional design competition, there was also a fun Design A Crocs for children on the spot. They placed tables and allowed kids to register and have fun crafting out their designs on large Crocs’ slippers which can be brought home after that. There were glue, glitters, ribbons, dye pens and cute stuff for you to use.

I honestly don’t know what Rae and Lea were trying to do but they both enjoyed it! LOL!

Army Officer is the New Subaru Impreza Winner

posted by constance

After an impressive 82 hours and 18 minutes, a new record is broken. That is the timing set for having his hands on the S$80,000 Subaru Impreza. The winner is a 29 year old Army Officer. Wow! He must be commended for his stamina for being able to withstand almost 4 days of this torture. It is not an easy contest, having to stand with your palms fixed on the spot and only going for 5 mins break for every 6 hour for a choice of meal, drinks or toilet breaks! Perhaps if he sold off the car, he can set aside $2,000 or a nice spa holiday…  Unless he wants to use the car but that is still without COE and other taxes and insurance.

Some good thumbnails I saw from a sg auto website of the contest.

With this record, George Lee walked away with his new Subaru Impreza! An army officer taking part and winning shows his strength and stamina being tested for all that grueling training he must be getting. Anymore tough training, we’ll have our officers fit to carry steel buildings like super heroes you watch on television! A 35 year old senior executive Mary Tan was first runner up.

I don’t think I’d even get past a day. Last year’s record was set by a woman, Sandra Yeow at 77 hours and 13 minutes! Another Super Hero, right?

Preparing for November Contest

posted by constance

I’ve been wrecking my brains over the Top Commentator widget. I wanted to start a new contest for November month but apparently the widget had already started it’s count since Nov 1 and I have not yet prepared the contest gift post.

I tried to reset it by taking it off but the widget still does a proper count from the first day of November so what I will do is to set my widget based on number of remaining days, just to make sure I get a proper count till the end of November.

The current contest also marks Top 4 Commentators as winners. Everyone gets a fair chance at the starting line. The contest will end in 30 November.

Watch out for the contest post, everyone!

Are You A Compulsive Shopper?

posted by constance

I know of many women who enjoys online shopping. Retail therapy helps some women to calm their nerves, make some happy or even kill boredom. Some does it when they are angry or depressed. It may get out of control for the compulsive shoppers. The shops in the mall may be closed by a certain time but you never stop if you are into online shopping. Do you suffer from any of these symptoms? Because if you do, there is a place whereby you can make a confession about it and win some money (for more shopping!).

If you have a story to tell, funny, sad or quirky, why not get it off your chest in a Shop and Confess column. It could be in text or even a video. It’s pretty easy. All you need is just to register for the contest online at this website – http://www.shopandconfess.com/ and you can tell the world about your urge or any dark secrets you’ve been keeping inside.

You may want to watch this video below of how easy it is to confess and enter it in a contest and win $1,500 every month!

Contest Ending Soon

posted by constance

It is only 2 days away before the contest for the Top Commentator ends. It will end on the 30 October. The time that I take down the 4 names will be at 6pm Singapore/Malaysia time on the 30 October 2008. The comments that are posted after 6pm will not be counted.

So good luck everyone!

I’ve been rather lazy blogging lately. On Friday, I was in a jubilant mood because that was the last day of exam. I tied up some loose ends in spring cleaning upstairs and had a good time on Sat, Sun and Mon just not really doing much except stay home or bring the girls out.

Because the exam is over, Rae is now asking to go on my desktop often playing those games again. There is this site that she goes often and I, too have gotten addicted at the game she played so mom and daughter take turns playing! If you want to try it out, go to y8.com and try out the flash games there! I didn’t know that there are so many games that are so interesting there!!
