My Other Hobbies

November 1, 2011

I spent last Friday and Saturday traveling to Segamat, a district located at the northern side of Johor. It was only a 2 day trip, where I drove there on Friday night and came back right after finishing the job there. Didn’t sample any local food apart from this.


Roast Chicken Rice, where you can basically get it anywhere in KL. Heard some close encounter stories as well which I rather not tell it here. Anyways, the reason for this post is not about food but about my other hobbies. I find that for the previous few months, most of my posts are mainly on food and there’s not much about me anymore and it’s not a good thing because the reason I started this blog is because I wanted to make sure that most of my experiences are well documented, so for this once, I wanted to write about my hobbies.

I wrote years back about my jersey collection and for the past few months, I have been catching up to naming and numbering them. Started a few years back but stop halfway, but continue back this year and somehow it keep my mind of other things.


During the Raya holidays, purchased some England Namesets and try to do a little bit of DIY.

PU Namesets are said to be more difficult to apply but I find it otherwise. Although the same cannot be said if the name set is expired. The satisfaction you get from DIY is priceless!


Lextra namesets, like the one being used by the Barclay Premier League is a bit more difficult and require longer time, but is said to be much easier as you can’t go wrong as long as you follow the instruction. The only way you can screw it up is if you align the name or numbers wrongly.


It’s more easier as well if you have a template like this sportingID template and you can align the letters according to your liking.


The most exciting part of the hobby is when you start to peel the plastic off like this, the feeling is very very good (if you are a jersey freak that is!).


David Luiz, all done in Chelsea Away Kit from last season.



Some other kits that I’ve patch up recently. I have only got about 5 more kits to patch up and then it’s until next season before doing any DIY stuff. Surely going to miss it and I will make sure I enjoy the process slowly.
