According to my horoscope that day 777 or July 7,2007 is the best day to purchase something for myself as a gift or reward for hardwork. I chose Louis Vuitton because it gave me the sign from the Logo itself that LV is the perpect gift. From the popular monogram canvas i saw the triple seven from the logo and that is the sign.Louis Vuitton is my magic wallet,my wallet that never runs out of cash.LoL.hope it will not stop to produce more!!!



Facts on Louis Vuitton
From Wikipedia


Louis Vuitton Malletier, or sometimes shortened to LV, is a
French luxury fashion and leather goods brand and company, one of the main divisions of LVMH headquartered in Paris, France. Known especially for bags and trunks, the company collaborates with prominent figures for marketing and design (most notably supermodel Gisele Bündchen and fashion designer Marc Jacobs). Internationally renowned and highly regarded for name recognition in the fashion world, as a result LV has become one of the most counterfeited contemporary luxury brands.
LV is also one of the oldest fashion houses in the world, having started in 1854. It sells its products strictly through its own retail stores and online (as an effort against counterfeit). It primarily competes with
Versace, Gucci, Chanel, Prada and similar luxury fashion brands.



History
In the late 19th century, Louis Vuitton was a renowned trunks and luggage retailer. Entering into the 20th century, the company expanded in terms of locations and financial success. Beginning in the middle of the century, it entered the fashion world, integrating its signature Monogram Canvas into purses and bags. Its merger to create
LVMH became a milestone step, and from then on, LV came to acquire its luxury fashion image known today.
Prominent figures to have exclusively ordered Louis Vuitton luggage in history include
Congo explorer Pierre Savorgnan de Brazza, who ordered a combined trunk and bed from the company, and American conductor Leopold Stokowski (for his travels), whose traveling secrétaire was designed by Gaston-Louis Vuitton.

Biography of Louis Vuitton
Louis Vuitton (born,
August 4, 1821; died, February 27, 1892),future founder of his eponymous company, was born in Jura, France (now part of the commune of Lavans-sur-Valouse). In 1835, he moved to Paris. The trip from his hometown to Paris was over 400 kilometers (249 mi), and he traveled the distance by foot. On his way there, he picked up a series of odd jobs to pay for his journey.

There, he became an apprentice Layetier to prominent households.Because of his well established reputation in his field, Napoleon III of France appointed Vuitton as Layetier to his wife, Empress Eugénie de Montijo. Through his experience with the french aristocracy, he developed expert knowledge of what made a good travelling case. It is now that he begins to design his own luggage, setting the foundations for LV Co.

Riyadh has for more than 1500 years been a fertile area set in the heartland of the Arabian Peninsula.The settlement was historically famous for its Palm Trees and Dates and Orchards.

This video that you are watching happened a year ago to the place where i am working right now.This is in Panda Supermarket,Dammam Saudi Arabia.I wasn't aware about this because that time, this event occurred i was still in the Philippines.

My fellow Pinoy shared this video, for me to be aware on the history of the place.He is working that time to the adjacent building where his office is located.He witnissed the crime from his window and it was captured from a mobile phone by his arab colleagues.At first knowing and watching the video my reaction is to be scared but examining the place now it is peaceful and well secured so no need for me to be frightened and to be worried about it.

From Wikipedia

History

1st vans factory
Originally known as Van Doren Rubber Company, Vans was founded on March 16, 1966 by Pauul Van Doren, Jim Van Doren (Brother), Serge D'Elia (Investor based in Japan), and Gordy Leeon 704E Broadway in Los Angeles, CA.
At first, Vans shoes were produced in the store, decades later American production of Vans shoes ended in July 1995. Vans began taking custom orders when people wanted different color schemes on their shoes. In the beginning, Vans designed their shoes with a diamond tread. Later on, the middle part of each shoe cracked and fell apart during heavy use, prompting Vans to add vertical lines in the tread to increase strength, friction and grip. The tread was officially named the "waffle-sole."
Today, Vans works heavily in the
surfing, skateboarding, snowboarding, urban and punk markets. The brand has also become popular over the last two years after re-introducing their much-loved slip-on. They have also marketed additional items such as clothing and skateboarding accessories.

Music scene
Kevin Lyman proposed to Vans, a music tour nationwide while Steve Van Doren wanted to do a skateboarding competition nationwide which then became Vans Warped tour with its first appearance in 1995 at the Hard Rock Cafe in Newport Beach, CA
In recent years, the bay area
hip-hop scene has begun to show interest in the brand, which has been popularized by the hip-hop group The Pack. The punk / ska band The Suicide Machines wrote The Vans Song as a tribute to the brand, and the rap group The Pack followed suit with their song, Vans.
In 2008, Vans - along with
Relentless and Rock Sound - sponsored the UK tour of American supergroup *shels.

Livestrong wristband




I bought one Livestrong wristband at Go Sport in Granada Mall, a distributor of Nike products in Saudi Arabia.


Brightly colored, rubbery wrist bands are an affordable fashion jewelry trend. But these soft bangle bracelets are a trend with a purpose. Each colored band represents a particular disease or societal concern. The hope is that people will be reminded of those issues when they see the bracelets worn. This "raised awareness" of issues can lead to increased research into cures for disease and better funding of programs designed to help those in need.


What is this Livestrong wristband?


Livestrong wristband
From Wikipedia


The Livestrong wristband
The Livestrong wristband is a
yellow silicone wristband (a gel bracelet) launched in May of 2004 as a fund-raising item for the Lance Armstrong Foundation, founded by cyclist and cancer survivor Lance Armstrong. The wristband itself was developed by Nike and their ad agency Wieden+Kennedy.


Purpose
The band is part of the "Wear Yellow Live Strong" educational program. The program is intended to raise money for cancer research, raise cancer awareness, and encourage people to live life to the fullest.

The band sells individually, as well as in packs of 10, 100, and 1,200 as part of an effort to raise $25 million for the Lance Armstrong Foundation in cooperation with Nike who manufactures the "live strong" bands in Austin, Texas the home of Lance Armstrong and other world wide manufacturing plants and sells the wristbands through their Nike outlets worldwide. This target was achieved within 6 months, and there have now been 70 million Livestrong bands sold to date. Individual bands sell for US$1 each.


Yellow was chosen for its importance in professional
cycling, as it is the color of the yellow jersey worn by the leader of the Tour de France. Other charities were inspired by the success of the Livestrong bracelets, and many charities have developed their own wristbands for raising money and awareness.

With the generous kindhearted of yours truly me, myself yes its me is the one who paid the bill for the sumptuous lunch that the entourage partake that include herb bake salmon,soup cream of chicken,hamour steak, and tenderloin with the desserts of blueberry and strawberry cheesecake and chocolate croissant.Ohlalala i love it we are so much full and by that we had enough energy to invade the place to do shopping.

Sad to say Bob one of my friend wasn't able to join due to work.What i bought from Ikea is the beautiful wall clock,mirror,slippers .Manny and Johnny bought plates and other kitchen utensils.Mark and Egay bought some stuff for laundry and for bathroom.Everybody felt exhausted yet happy for the experience even in a limited time.we hurriedly went home to take our afternoon siesta.
