This terms put me thinking about my family and in fact we have always been a "maker" family since young. We never threw away our old and broken toys. My brother will always glue it back or "mash up" broken toys into a new toy for me. As for my mum, being a professional bag maker, seamstress, she will always remove zips, clips or any reusable parts from pants or bags that we were going to throw away and keep them. With these parts we can always replace on other bags and such instead of throwing them away. She also makes new pencil cases, bags and even hats for us.

Stroking My Ego
I guess that's an overview for the makers movement but I guess I'm not really one of those "captain planet" kinda guys that do things for a huge cause of saving the earth. I guess you can call me shallow and self centred but for me, the idea of making my own things and customising things is all about being unique and special, aka stroking my own ego.
|My very own logo and cap.|
I created my own logo some moons ago and there I created my own badges as well as caps. And things didn't stop there, I also created my own badges for my wedding with the help of Superstore Singapore!
Who still gives silly badges these days? These ain't just silly badges. They are also
And if this is not enough? You can even make you own notepads! Why? Because iPad is too mainstream and it is time for SMITHPAD! (that didn't come out as cool as i thought)
How cool right! And what are that two totebags doing there? I am glad you asked! It is customised by the good people from superstore Singapore too!
Hahaha! Super funny caption right? This is such a good gift for any events! I mean even batman creates all his branding and what not all the time. He sure is a man of ego and contradiction too. Like you are suppose to work in the night and save the world and do not want recognition but putting your logo big big on your suit? On your car? And customised logo weapons? Seriously?
Then again, he is rich so I can't blame him for being an ego-maniac, but the good thing is that at Superstore you do not need to be rich! Everyone can have their own customised items be it for stroking ego or corporate events!
