The Fun Dip-Stick

Post by Mark

Dip Stick

Looks like Yan Yan have a guerrilla campaign going on. Ok maybe not. Its only one poster I saw on a wall outside a supermarket but still its a pretty cool poster. The best part is the tag line which is “The Fun Dip-Stick” (closer look).

Here are two definitions of Dip-Stick taken from UrbanDictionary.com all though I know it simply as another word for idiot:

1. Dip Stick
One who’s brain capacity is less than a long thin piece of metal used to check oil levels.

2. Dip Stick
The usage of fingers during sexual activities to gage the moistness of a woman’s vagina.

Now thats pretty cool.

Brand Sluts

Post by Mark

Brand Sluts means an obsession with consumerism but adapted and popularized by Marian Salzman in 2005 as a way to define consumers who flit from one brand to the next with no sense of fidelity to any one of them. While the connotation is negative, brand sluts are, in fact, savvy consumers.

Here are more “now” phrases. [Link]

Shawerma Review: IKEA

Post by Mark

ikea shawerma

Sweden is famous for their meatballs so when IKEA started making and selling shawermas I was eager to try it.

First time I had the shawerma in the new IKEA branch at The Avenues mall I didn’t like it. They mixed vegetables with my shawerma and I hate places that do that. The vegetables which is usually made up of onions and some green stuff (I don’t know what its called) over powers the chicken flavor. So next time I passed by IKEA I ordered the shawerma plain with just garlic.

How was it? Its edible.

The biggest problem I had with their shawerma is the bread. I think there is too much bread for the shawerma. The solution I would recommend is to either increase the quantity of chicken in the bread or decrease the size of the bread itself. The chicken tasted good and the garlics presence was felt but not over done. If only they weren’t so stingy.

Final score I settled for was 3 out of 5. The shawerma costs 250fils which is great specially since the place is extremely clean. They also have an offer combo, coke plus shawerma for 350fils. The location is crap, no one is going to drive up to IKEA just for their shawerma of course. Overall its not bad for their first try. I just hope they start filling up the bread with more chicken.
