Well, Apple started the ball rolling, and boy what a ball it is! I won't be going into the nitty gritty stuff, just a general recap (and some comments) of the event on the 23rd October.

Korean model So Yeon (?????) entered the scene about more than a year ago; and I was totally hooked.
It's pretty easy to see why.
A hot curvaceous body with smoking legs, booblicious bosom, stunning face and a cute smile that melt hearts.
Definitely giving schoolgirl Hwang Mi Hee (???) a run for the money.
Enjoy this album set!
More to come!

Onto 1300 flags and beyond in my favorite desktop game: Plants vs Zombies! Introducing the 4 Cob Cannon Setup for Survival Endless.
Still remember the ladder strategy? This time I got all 6 ladders on
either side of the pool. (that will take care of those pesky imps!)
I did a few fiddling here and there with regards to the setup. But this is all built around the core of the 4 Cob Cannons.
I usually use Blower for the balloon zombies; but decided to try cattails for a cute change.

A sneak peek at the all new Tomb Raider game by Crystal Dynamics coming out on March 5th 2013.

Cyrstal Dynamics have elected to completely relaunch both the brand and
Lara Croft. Shes younger, shes softer and shes not quite ready to

I was searching through YouTube for videos on one of my favorite timeless classic "Knife by Rockwell"; when I chanced upon a live performance of this song by this Korean Lady in an unknown cafe/bar.
Turns out she's Kang Ji Min (???); and when she reaches the "high" of the song, I'm totally hooked.
I would say she has the range of legendary Linda Ronstadt's vocal; superb on both lows and highs, deep and strong.
I'm not familiar with Korean songs, but she did quite a number of English covers, liv [..]
