Not at all, although the origins of the word came from the Kashmir area from the Persian times, we are fortunate that many other locations are now producing cashmere. One in particular is in Inner Mongolia, northern China. This area is the biggest producer of cashmere goats in the wool. Vary the pressure when working with color to give the sketch shadows and highlights. Never mind coloring outside the lines, because neatness in drawing doesn count much compared with the tangible creation that results from the idea. Some designers even purposefully color outside the outline, making the sketch more artistic and abstract. Many films of the 1940s centered on the trials and tribulations of the brave men and women fighting for freedom in Europe and the Pacific. In order to express its support for the hardships and rations endured during the War by regular citizens, Hollywood created simple and subdued costumes during this period. Women dressed in simple suits or slacks with sensible shoes. Batman Forever Return of Swamp Thing (Truly bad but I couldn make a strong enough case to call it a superhero film) Elektra Meteor Man (This film almost made my list but I left if off since it is mainly a spoof) Ghost Rider Dick Tracy And finally, I have to mention one film that was excluded that perhaps deserves the number one spot and that the 1994 Fantastic Four film that was never released theatrically or on video although it been heavily bootlegged. Intending it to be a $40 big budget film, the producer, Neu Constantin was about to lose his rights to the film and had to produce something. He hired director Roger Corman to make the film but not for $40 million. Matchy Matchy doesn't always work in the fashion world because sometimes you have to mix and match your outfits along with a little color. With the rules of wearing white after labor day doesn't really apply anymore. In fashion, you'll need to take certain risks without being afraid to strut your stuff in those outfits that you own. Are you one of those people that know exactly what you want but you have trouble finding it. Try looking for it on Ebay. You will be shocked to find exactly what you are looking for in a very reasonable price. Should petite women buy, tweak, or skip the animal influences trend for fall/winter 2010/2011? I say tweak on this fall fashion trend. Furs, whether real or faux, tend to be quite bulky, so petite women should wear them with care. For example, a fur lined hood may work better than a full length fur coat.

The Reborn of the All New Kia Rio in Australia

Precisely a year ago, the all new Kia Rio reborn in Australia. The 2012 Kia Rio is the third generation of the car, which was first introduced in 2000. The first two generations of Kia Rio can be awful, but the latest generation of Rio is a total different set of stories. The car is sporty, award-winning run-around that seems as comfortable in most of the road conditions.




As you may know, the car has been spotted many times in Kuala Lumpur with trader’s plate. The new Kia Rio is rumoured to be launching by Q4 2012 in Malaysia. If you are in the market for a Volkswagen Polo or a Ford Fiesta, I would suggest you to wait and give the New Kia Rio a try.




Based on reviews, the car engineered with great handling and performance. Similar to the new Kia Sportage, the new Rio is designed by Massimo Frascella, an Italian car designer who’s had a hand in designing cars for Ford, Land Rover, Jaguar and even Aston Martin. This car is European designed, built in South Korean with a Korean price tag. The car has already received rave reviews (4.7 out of 5) from car buyer, and late last year it was the car awarded Semperit Irish Car of the Year. The Rio has also claimed Car Guide’s 2011 Car of the Year and won Slovakia’s 2012 Car of the Year.




The new Kia Rio has been hailed as a ‘great alternative to the Ford Fiesta’. Reviewers have also said that the Rio ‘continues Kia’s march upmarket and benefits from smart, contemporary styling, and generous space inside. In Australia, there are few variants available – 1.4-litre and 1.6-litre petrol engine, 3-door and 5-door versions.


The engine of the Kia Rio 1.4 output a maximum power of 79kW (105HP) @ 6,300rpm and a max torque of 135Nm @ 4,200rpm. Interestingly, the Kia Rio 1.6 comes with GDi D-CVVT engine that churning 103kW (138HP) @ 6,300rpm and a max torque of 167Nm @ 4,850rpm. Now I understand why the new Kia Rio was mentioned as “sporty” at the very beginning. I am sure the Rio 1.6 is one of the fastest subcompact cars in the market.


The Kia Rio 1.4 comes with 6-speed manual or 4-speed automatic transmission.  The top range, Kia Rio 1.6 comes with 6-speed manual or 6-speed automatic transmission. Unfortunately, there are no diesels variants in down-under land. You can check out the specifications across all variants of the new 2012 Kia Rio if you are in Australia.


Lastly, Kia has packaged the car greatly with its styling, performance and handling, but don’t take all their word for it. Just wait until we take the car keys for a test, we will judge whether this is faster and better or the Polo 1.2 TSI!
