Who says the elderly can’t have style?

Posted in Is it Nice..?, Videos by Ade Chong on January 15, 2012

Watching this video just made me think of how my friends and I are going to grow old. Some of their outfits are crazy, some of their outfits are laughable, and some are downright stylish; but the thing I love the most is that they don’t give a shit. I have so much admiration for people like that. Self-expression is something you should never lose sight of, no matter how old you are.

The Museum of Obsolete Objects

Posted in Digital, Is it Nice..?, Videos by Ade Chong on September 6, 2011

Just lovely. The Museum of Obsolete Objects is a place for fallen appliances, tools and gadgets from a simpler time. A lovely place to go to relive your childhood. I’m also incredibly impressed by how they built this entire site in Youtube. I remember working with Youtube a year ago and it was such a pain. Youtube must be pushing for brand channels these days if it’s progressed this far this quickly.

The site is built in Flash by German digital agency, Jung von Matt/Next.

Check this little shit out

Posted in Is it Nice..?, Videos by Ade Chong on July 25, 2011

Check out this little shit that my mum found. Think it might be a baby sparrow. She found it on the ground, unable to fly – probably fell out of a tree. So for now, we’re playing mum to it. The little fucker’s already bossing us around, complaining when we put it back in its (oversized) box and constantly asking for food (by chirping with its mouth wide open -_-

But yeah, it’s kinda cute. It likes to perch on my hand and if I try to put it down, it’ll fly back to me. Hopefully it’ll be able to fly away on its own soon. Catch it on video here.

Shake it like a polaroid picture

Ix’s giant origami crane

Posted in Handmade, Is it Nice..?, Videos by Ade Chong on July 3, 2011

Went up to KL for the weekend for Ix’s birthday and spent Friday night helping out with the props for the Heritage Festival this year. We spent quite a bit of time rehearsing how to fold Ix’s giant origami crane – which he designed himself.

The entire crane consists of 12 panels and can be folded and flat-packed into a 1.5m x 0.7m board, great for transportation. And all you need to put it together is fold it. Brilliant.

Working out the mechanics of the crane. Also have a video of them working out the best way to erect the crane. I love how we got distracted halfway through and started raving. lol
