Dockers Men’s Flat Front True Chinos (Was USD$ 50, now from USD$ 15 onwards)
Hari Raya is just around the corner. Although I am a non-Muslim, I still celebrate the festivities with one of my best bud, N whose gorgeous “kuah kacang” I look forward to every year. Hari Raya is also another good excuse to get new outfits.
I was trawling the Net and I stumbled on an amazing deal. I found Dockers Men’s Flat Front True Chino from USD$15 onwards at Amazon.com. Made from 100% cotton, these stylish yet comfortable slacks is suitable for the office or an evening out with the guys. Dress it up with a shirt and tie, you are ready for your meeting. Or dress down with a polo shirt for a casual night out with the family or friends. For this Hari Raya, I think a “Baju Melayu” top would be quite appropriate too.
This versatile slacks has hook and eye front closure with inside button. The ¼ top front pockets and coin pouch on wearer’s right side is convenient to store any loose change. The double welt button through back pockets with the keystone stitch detail above the double welt pockets adds a nice subtle touch. Some of the masculine colours available are Khaki, Deep Sea, Oiled Brown and the essential Black.
And here are some of the items to go with the Dockers True Chino to make your man look spiffy for this Hari Raya.

“Spread the love, not the virus” is my mantra these days. With a horrible disease like Influenza A (H1N1) claiming more lives everyday, personal hygiene should be everyone’s top priority. One of the methods that has been recommended by the health authorities is the usage of hand sanitizers. While there are many different brands of hand sanitizers out there, my personal favourite is the one by Bath & Body Works.
I love the pocket-sized PocketBacTM Deep Cleansing Hand Gelas it is so portable that you can carry them in your handbag, laptop bags or even school bags. This small wonder contains natural ingredients and powerful germ killers that help you keep your hands clean wherever you go. The PocketBacTM Deep Cleansing Hand Gelcontains Vitamins B5 and E to nourish your skin and leaves your skin gently scented. I really adore the many different scents that this hand gel comes in. At only US$ 1.50 per 1 fl. oz. bottle (30ml), am sure it is a small price to pay to keep nasty germs at bay. Currently, Bath & Body Works has a 5 for $5 PocketBac Hand Gel special offer. With this wonderful offer, you can now have one PocketBac for each of your handbags or you can buy one in each scent.
