The Art of Packing by Louis Vuitton


How to pack your for a trip? Louis Vuitton defined this, The Art of Packing! However, it is an old video but I forgot to blog it long time ago. In case you have all the Louis Vuitton collection and ready to pack like in Louis Vuitton video, please don't end up at Ryan Air or Easy Jet or any economic class flight :)

Louis Vuitton Fall 2014 Campaign with Maserati Boomerang | Tyres!


Louis Vuitton recently used an iconic and also tend to break down Maserati Boomerang for the Fall 2014 campaign. However, I noticed something on the photos! And I assume many people did not even notice this.

Maserati Boomerang is not equipped with the same tread patterns of tyres! I know this does not sound unusual for many people but for road safety, each tyres of the vehicle should have the same tread pattern. However, this Boomerang has a semi-slick front tyres and rear tyres seem to have a old-school winter tyre. 

What do these things mean? Basically, this car will understeer heavily on wet roads due to semi-slick front tyres and control will be really hard. And on dry roads, it will understeer due to lack of friction at the rear tyres when it is compared to semi-slick front tyres. 
Understeer means, you won't have a control on front wheels this leads to lose the control on front-end and crash to a tree. Oversteer means, you won't control the rear-end and crash to a tree. In both case, you will crash to a tree, so be careful!
With this article, I managed to harmonise a luxury fashion brand with tyre tread patterns, well done to me :)

Kia | Istanbul not Constantinople #KiaYourCity from Twitter, Facebook and Google+ (Updated)


Few hours ago, Kia's Worldwide Google+ (http://bit.ly/1qemZ7e) and Facebook (http://on.fb.me/1qJkw2f) accounts released a photo  under the #KiaYourCity campaign on social media. Nothing really special or unusual with this, however Kia shared a Kia C'eed photo that was taken in Istanbul, Turkey. Nothing unusual with this as well. I have just noticed that Kia shared the same content their Twitter (@Kia_Motors) account as well! (http://bit.ly/YWk22a) The surprising point was the label; 
"#ceed‪ in #Istanbul (not Constantinople) #Turkey #KiaYourCity #Kia".  
Istanbul is used to be called as Constantinople. However, it is changed from Constantinople to Istanbul officially after the Turkish Republic was established. Despite this fact, Constantinople is still preferred by some people. For me that's fine, I never argue about these things. Despite my calm approach to this, many people try to correct when someones says Constantinople to Istanbul. And it is quite interesting to spot this debate on Kia's Google+ and Facebook pages.


The background of this lies on the history of Ottoman Empire and Byzantium. It is a subject that should not be discussed on a blog like this. However, I am really surprised to see this label on Kia's website. And I don't know whether it is generated by a user and shared by Kia or Kia generated it.
