Posted by editor On November - 7 - 2008

There are different kinds of paties out there so what is your panty styles?


panty01 panty02thong-back

Thong – these bareback basics panties have much practical purpose, in that they eliminate unsightly panty lines under skirts and snug-fitting pants. Among thongs categorie here are the most common thong varieties:

G-strings feature little more than a triangle of fabric in front and a thin “string” of fabric around the hips and down the back. This is one of the skimpiest thong styles and is best reserved for wearing undertight-fitting bottoms to eliminate visible panty lines. (see g-string thong pictures bellow)

sensual-G-String front-g-string

V-strings are similar to G-strings but feature a rear string that separates into a “V” of two strings (or a small triangle of fabric) at the rear waistband. (see v-string thong pictures bellow)

v-string-back-front v-string-back

T-backs have waistbands or strings that stretch straight across your waist; so from the back, the side and bottom straps have a “T” shape. (see T-thong pictures bellow)

t-thong-2 t-thong-front

Rios are similar to T-backs except the waistband rises above the hips at the sides instead of sitting straight across your waist and back. (see rio thong pictures bellow shown on man and woman)

Tangas offer the most coverage of any thong style. They generally have wide waistbands and back straps. (see tanga-thong pictures bellow)

Bikinis – give full coverage in the back with leg openings that are cut above the thigh. Most bikinis sit about three inches below the natural waistline, although with the popularity of low-rise pants, some are now cut even lower.

classic bikini offer comfort and full back coverage (can be high-rise / above waist-line or can be low-rise / bellow waist-line) (see classic bikini pictures bellow)

String bikini born out of creativity by thinning the sideline, sometimes there can be single string, double strings or even tripple strings bikini (see string bikini pictures bellow)

Boy-cut short, Culottes & Hipsters Briefs


Boy-cut short is a full-coverage panty style with a low-riding waistline and leg openings that rest just above the thigh. Because they sit so low on the waist, boy shorts can visually lengthen your torso (see boy-cut pictures bellow)

boyshort-01 boyshort-back

boyshort-02 boycut-lace

Culottes is cut like a boy-cut short except it looks like a skirt wrap/mini divided skirt. (see culottes pictures bellow)



Hipsters Briefs – offer the same low-riding waistline as boy shorts, but the leg openings hit well above the thigh, helping to avoid the fabric “ride-up” you sometimes get when wearing longer-cut boy shorts. While hipsters are generally considered a full-coverage style, some may be cut a bit higher in the rear than classic boy shorts or briefs

panty07 panty04

Modern briefs, like traditional briefs, offer full front and back coverage, but have a lower rise. Their waistbands sit a few inches below the natural waistline.

briefs french-cut-brief

High-cut briefs offer the same full coverage as traditional briefs, but have high-cut leg openings in front. The waistband sits at or just above your natural waistline.


French-cut briefs (picture shown bellow) have the highest-cut leg openings of all brief styles. The leg openings hit the highest point on the hip and are positioned more to the front of the panties than the standard high-cut brief. The waistband should sit at your natural waistline.


Control briefs (picture shown bellow) are meant to slim your tummy, bottom or upper thighs. They look like traditional or high-cut briefs, but feature control panels at the front, rear or both.

Poseidon, Fiji – the word’s first undersea resort hotel

Posted by editor On November - 5 - 2008


So How do you like to sleep under the sea without getting wet? I always admire sea beauty and its creature, too bad I am a sea freak. I wouldn’t last very long in sea water before I shout out “help” with a hysterical tone, cuz to tell you the truth I am terrified of sharks. Well now with the luxurious lifestyle Poseidon Undersea Resort offer the benefit of enjoying the view of natural sea from your bed chamber. It’s like living in an aquarium except it’s the other way around we’re inside the air-filled aquarium and the fishes are outside surrounded by water.

Poseidon Undersea Resort is nestled in the crystal clear cerulean water of Fijian lagoon. It is said to be open in 2009, by begining of 2010 they will start taking regular reservation.

According to the developers, the island comprises approximately 225 acres, stretches a mile long and is surrounded by a 5000-acre lagoon with waters that range to 90 feet in depth. It is situated within a coral atoll that was chosen by the developers for its crystal-clear water and unspoiled tropical marine ecosystem.


So how do you like to spend a night in this suite? that’s 70% of it made up from 4 inch thick acrylic glass so you can get the beautiful sea-view while you sleep. Plus check out these features: king-size beds, sitting rooms and library, and personal office facilities such as WiFi and high-speed Internet access. They will also have flat screen TVs, CD/DVD players and refrigerators stocked with gourmet snacks and premium beverages. The ensuite include large jacuzzi tubs and hydro-spa showers. Now that’s what you’ll call underwater luxury.



Aside from its underwater suites Poseidon Resort also offer stays at over the water bungalows and beach-front villas, so if you’re so much of a water freak then maybe this is another option.

For construction and safety issue please visit poseidon’s website.


Now the cost… of course with such luxury there’s always gonna be a huge bill – well too bad it is a humongus cost to stay (as for my budget) a weeklong visit will cost $15,000 USD per person meaning a couple will be charge at $30K for a week to stay in a shared suite. The resort can accomodate maximum of 144 people (72 rooms/suites total), so if you want to book the whole thing say for a wedding event or coorporate event then it’ll cost 3 million USD for a week. yes that’s 3,000,000 with the six zeros!


This is the view of the lobby. I also read about the possibility of coming up with undersea chapel or some sort like that for a wedding event. The undersea chapel will be a splendid space for a vow renewal, with coral garden backdrop – how romantic.



So what to do there? they offer submarine piloting activity, deep reef excursion, exploring the abyss to the depth of 1000 feet bellow using the triton submersibles, scuba diving, sea-floor walks, water sports, para sailing, ultralight flight, cave exploration, star gazing, cavort (private honeymoon spot), diving and walking tours, lectures and workshop on marine science, and if these not enough they have these amenities:

  • SPA
  • Dining (6 restaurans & 7 bars available)
  • Sport (9-holes golf, tennis, beach volley & bocce, windsurfing, sailing, kayaking, snorkeling, parasailing, bike riding, trail walking, birding, yoga, wellness classes and more)
  • Fitness Center
  • Library
  • Shops & Boutiques
  • Conference room, Wedding chapel & Theater

Up on the tree hotel – The woodpecker hotel, vasteras, sweden

Posted by editor On November - 4 - 2008


Suspended 13 meter above the ground this tree hotel is located in Vasteras, Sweden (Not to far from Stockholm). So how do you get into the room? There’s this sturdy and wobbly rope ladder (so you gotta climb I assume) and then once you reach the platform/deck area then you can view the impressive park bellow and the lake beyond.

Well if you always dream of that tree house once you’re small a stay in the woodpecker hotel is definetly a must. And it’s only one room available at a rate about 250-350 depending upon the season (summer season is very popular)

take a look at the closer view here:

what can be more adventurous than staying in a cave? well it’s not the primitive cave I’m refering to but more like Elkep Evi, a boutique hotel that offers cave rooms with modern facilities and ideally located near the top of Esbelli, the hill above the town of Urgup in Cappadocia. By the way Elkep Evi is the only cave hotel located at the top of mountain in Cappadocia. Check out these pictures of the hotel and surrounding scenic views.
