  1. Thanks @Bearcore! I agree that weight loss can be challenging for some weeks, but it's slowly progressing once I endure frustration and boredom from the early stages of weight loss. I measure my weight and body fat with Inbody at gym every 2 weeks and hopefully I'll have an additional body fat and weight loss soon πŸ˜ƒ.
  2. Congrats to all winners! I'm also began to lose some weight and gain some muscles about two months ago (had a severe weight spike in this year and my weight is now 95.6kg with 40.7% body fat, which is quite significant decrease from 99.8 kg with 44.8% body fat). Hope that I can lose more weight and become a buff dude in some day πŸ˜ƒ. I might join in the next International Fat Bastard Competition when it pops in once again πŸ˜„
  3. One of my Korean FOH BOTLs just informed me that the local Habanos Specialist store decided to increase the price of Cohiba & Trinidad by double from this month 😣. The price of CCs in Korea has been identical to UK (sometimes more $$$ than UK) since 2010's, but I fear that it'll be pricey as HK or Singapore in near future after HSA's pricing policy change 😭. The price of NCs including Davidoff and Rocky Patel at Korean cigar B&Ms are also began to increase rapidly about few days ago. I believe CCs & NC sales in Korea will be declined massively for long period of time due to constant cigar price hike 😱.
  4. Vids seem don't work here as well. Other than that, thank you for sharing Cohiba 55th Launch Event experience @Mr. Japan! πŸ‘
  5. I think he used an AI translator called Papago or other English-Korean AI translators (it's loosely translated but has same meaning overall). As a friend of @Papago and cigar jesus of my FOH Korean buddies, I'm really happy to see him being more active on FOH πŸ‘πŸ˜„
  6. Connie A is one of my fav CCs all the time and it tastes really good even after 30 days of resting period only. Wish I have a box of Connie A in my CC collection as well. I agree that price hike makes difficult to get bigger vitolas. Korean B&Ms will have a even higher price spike soon too and I believe Korean CC price will be same as HK in near future (Lusi 25 Dress Box and Siglo III box at local Habanos Specialist retailer were already at $1000+ few years ago).
  7. Thanks buddy! Hope that I can have a herf with you when i travel to Philly πŸ˜ƒ.
  8. Thanks buddy! I usually buy long CCs on 2424 sales but since recent D4 production has great reputation on FOH, I decide to snag D4 box before it's too late πŸ˜ƒ. Hope that I have a chance to get E2s and Connie As (one of my fav CC rotation) too on some day. I too believe De La Mano is one of the greatest local cigar lounges for those who enjoy speakeasy atmosphere with jazz music, cigars, and whisky 🎷πŸ₯ƒ. Jazz is one of my fav music genres and I think it'll be suitable especially for puffing long CCs such as CCE, Monte 1, and Lusis 😁.
  9. Much appreciated buddy! Since Monte 1 more frequently pops on 2424 sales than before, I'm definitely buy moar Monte 1s if possible πŸ˜„. I also ordered D4 clearance box on last week and hope that it'll be tasty as Monte 1 πŸ˜ƒ. On next Kimfessions episode, I'm planning to visit local cigar lounge called De La Mano which is runned by Davidoff Korea but allows bringing your own CCs if I pay some fees. One of my Korean FOH buddies went there and he said it had a great whisky selection in a cool speakeasy ambient with Chet Baker's music being played, so it sounds really promising as Led Zeppelin cigar lounge. πŸ‘
  10. Much agreed! Monte 1 is also classic CC and I feel glad I have a Monte 1 box from our host πŸ˜ƒ. Hope that next local CC lounge experience will still be enjoyable as last Kimfessions Series πŸ˜„. I'll let you know when the Kimfessions: CCE review begins πŸ˜‰.
  11. Thanks buddy! Looks like I should grab Partagas 898 when it pops on 2424 sales πŸ˜ƒ. As a huge fan of long CCs, I really like the variety of flavor from these CCs like Monte 1 πŸ˜„. I recently got new Side Part haircut at barbershop and also added Walrus stache on my beard, so the next Kimfessions Series will be something more refreshing than before 😎
  12. Absolutely! RASS is one of the CCs that are getting better and better as they're being aged. I really like the fruit bomb flavor of RASS πŸ˜ƒ. I'm currently keeping CCs in two tupperdors and one of them is box storage exclusive. I also have Monte 1 box from our host and I can tell Monte 1 is a pure CC delight if you're a big fan of long CCs like me πŸ˜„.
  13. No problem buddy! I noticed you have RASS dress box in your wineador. RASS is one of my fav CCs too and I wish I have a RASS 50 cab in my stash πŸ˜ƒ.
  14. Much agreed! I really like long CCs and and I can tell Lusi is the absolute CC delight for sure. I'm sure Partagas 898 will do a job for me too πŸ˜„ Since most of Korean cigar lounges' business hours returned to normal, I'm now able to resume Kimfessions Series once again 😍
  15. Dat tasty Partagas 898 and Lusi indeed @Heels82! Wish I have boxes of Partagas 898 and Lusi since I'm a big fan of long CCs (Lusi is one of my all time fav CCs)πŸ˜„
  16. Congrats @Ford2112! What a fantastic tasty CC sampler prize indeed πŸ˜ƒ
  17. Much agreed @jakebarnes. With the recent price of most Cohiba cigars, I can buy other CCs and rare ones such as Monte 1, MdO4, and Sir Winnie instead. Here in Korea every CCs including Partagas Lusitanias are already ridiculously expensive (the price difference between 25ct DB Lusis and 25ct SLB Siglo III at local Habanos Specialist B&M is extremely small) and I believe CC price in Korea will be pricier in near future.
  18. Although Cohiba is one of my fav CC marcas, I'm going to buy rare ones such as COLA, CCE, and Siglo III/V/VI only for Cohiba due to recent Cohiba price spike. For CORO, it tastes really good for my palate but I can spend my coins on its tasty same sized peers like RASS or even better CCs including Connie A instead.
