First Editions – Gen 13 #1 (1994)


First Editions - Gen 13 #1 (1994)

This was a crazy 1st issue, during the most prolific time in comic history and Image Comics was doing really well (but later absorbed by DC after the bubble burst) … The reason it was crazy is because they released 13 variant covers (coz Gen “13″) and like an idiot I had to have all 13 … Notable covers include a spoof of Pulp Fiction’s poster, Janet Jackson’s infamous Rolling Stone cover and a kickass one by Simon Bizley.

Oh yeah and I bought it because I was a huge fan of Jim Lee!

Steak Frites


Steak Frites

This was a pretty decent 200g Australian tenderloin w/ loads of herbed butter … at Steak Frites, 23 Love Lane, Penang.

The thing I love about this restaurant is that it only serves one thing – steak & fries (hence the name “Steak Frites“)

The only choices you have are whether you want 150g or 200g and how you want your steak done.

Super cool.

Throwback Thursday: Pete Teo Live @ Heineken Green Room Sessions (2003)


Throwback Thursday: Pete Teo Live @ Heineken Green Room Sessions (2003)

This is a great shot by Bernice Chauly of Malaysian singer/songwriter Pete Teo during his solo concert @ The Actor’s Studio Bangsar in 2003.

I produced this concert for Pete and it was sponsored by Heineken.

The show broke a lot of ground for both Heineken and the indie scene in Malaysia (FIRST indie concert in Malaysia to sell out way before opening night) and is still something I am very proud of to this day!

And don’t forget we didn’t have Facebook and all this social media to promote during those days!
