Toyota Ad capturing the technologies and interfaces in cars we often take for granted, like headlights and windshield wipers by portraying them in the form of humans. It’s clever and funny. The human factors should touch the hearts of more customers and attract them to its showroom.

It does have that Stealth kind of feel… blocky, featureless and anti reflective…

Smokers’ Incense

October 22, 2006


Smokers are a dying specie in Singapore what with tobacco tax raising almost every quarter of the year. When I was 10, 20 sticks of Marlboro cost about SGD2. Now its about SGD12 or whatever… It doesn’t matter anyway… the haze from the Indonesian forest fires is good enough high for us.

The Smokers’ Incense is supposed to covers up your smoking tracks after you finish your lung burning hobby by leaving a pleasent scent. £2.95 per pack. Wait a minute.. wouldn’t it be smokier? And what’s the difference between this and normal incense sticks? Hmmm…

I find these stuffs strange… are they meant to encourage smoking…
