Hi, my name is Michael Cheung, and the purpose of this "Paperclip Challenge" is to start with a paperclip and trade for something better. Then after that I trade and trade and trade until I get myself to the goal of getting a FLAT!!! Nope not a house, A FLAT!!!. It's a daunting task but then again its not called "The Paperclip Challenge" for nothing! If you are interested then please send an e-mail to MHYCheung@hotmail.CO.UK.

1). Bike stand
2). User manual

The story behind this is quite hectic. It started with me driving to Reading on Thursday 1st February to see 5 properties to rent in cos I'm gonna be moving down there on the 19th Feb cos of a new job. In the end I found a really nice place for £433.33 all inclusive!

Then back up to Stamford and then had to prepare and clean up the BMX on Sat morning for a trade in Preston on Saturday 3rd Feb. Still following? Ok good! Since I had to go to Birmingham to meet up with some friends (on Friday 2nd Feb) who I haven't seen for almost a year! Hi Chris, Kiki, Ivan and Judy! Cheers KiKi for letting me stay overnight in your awesome posh flat and most importantly a place to keep my BMX bike! NICE! So went for a dinner out and then a night out in OCEANA with them. It was a really cool night club and an awesome night out.

So then the finally after the Sat night party, got up on Sunday morning to have some Dim Sum with the mates and then headed off with the BMX to Preston on a 2 hour journey from Birmingham. Finally got there after driving through 1 hour of dense fog. It was crazy. Could hardly see in front of me so I had to drive extra slow.

So now I finally get to meet the man, John. Really friendly guy. Even had a drink with him inside after the trade, non-alcoholic of course! Cos kids remember! Don't drink and drive irresponsibly :) His girlfriend took the lovely picture in the lovely dense fog. I always seem to trade in the worst type of weather!

He's moving house so he's trying to get rid of alot of things, good things may I also add! So if anyone has got cash and money to spend. Help John clear out his house of goodies by searching on for his username "Stables01" (he's the username that's located in Lancashire, UK) on Ebay! Cheers John. Enjoy the bike!

OH YEAH! If you guys wanna chat to me or offer a trade I'll can be reached by contacting me on the e-mail address below. I'll get back to you as soon as possible!
