Amazing angmoh

Shane, my friend is one amazing angmoh! He’s only been here for a about 3 months, he’s can’t speak Malay well just yet but listen to him singing in Malay….it’s just AMAZING and not to mention that his voice is like HEAVEN ON EARTH okay?! I should’ve blogged about him when he was still performing weekly at Shamrock, Waterfront KK but I was just to damn lazy to bother writing anything in my blog. I actually suggested to him Samsons – Bukan Diriku to sing at that bar but I’m sad to say that I never got a chance to listen to him singing that song at Shamrock but I did however listen to a preview of him singing it whilst having dinner with him and Asif at The Place and it was AWESOME..!! So, press play this Youtube video, I’m sure you’d be in awe just like me.

 

And to those who’s looking for a good place to have a fancy buffet lunch, drop by Hyatt on Sunday (12.00 noon – 3.00 pm) I think they’ve started Christmas menu cos what I had there yesterday was yummylicious….was too lazy to take pictures tho…sorry bout that…maybe next time. xx

 

Okay…another video of Shane….

You’ve Got X, now lets get Stompin’!

As I previously stated in my latest entry, I was given the chance by Nuffnang and of course invited by Celcom XPAX to attend the event of the year in Kota Kinabalu, STOMPIN’ 2010! I didn’t attend the event in 2009 so I am uber excited to go to this one. I’ve got 10 FREE tickets so I invited all my close friends to go see the concert and we definitely went home with a smiling face or was it smiling face and a stopped by at Edgar’s after ….. Hmmm…… We must’ve been hypnotized by the sound of GREAT music in Stompin that we decided to hit the club right after for some more music!! Yeah, that concert had that impact on us. So, to those of you who didn’t make an effort to go join the fun filled times we had at Jesselton Point, your lost! Hahaha! But then, don’t be too sad tho, there’s always next year so make sure your save the date for next year. 74131_494807119327_179959144327_7086830_6355474_n73049_494806309327_179959144327_7086808_6825720_n

 

Unfortunately tho, the rain was scarily heavy that I was afraid it might flood and that I’m gonna be stuck at home but then it didn’t stop me from going to that concert! Why? Because I’ve heard mixed reviews about last year’s Stompin. Some said it was horrible and that it’s not worth it to go and watch but then some said it was fun and all the performers are great. so, that made me wanna go see it for myself. Can’t really trust what other people say until you see if for yourself right!!

 

I reached Jesselton Point around 7 p.m and got my tickets from Celcom people and made my way into the venue with my hot nieces! It was still rainy tho when we got there so I was a bit upset about that, and the tent for VIPs were full! So, we had to stand in the rain under my umbrella ella ella. Lucky I took my brolli with me, otherwise my mascara would run down! Jeez…. So probably next time, Celcom can do it in a place like Likas Sports Complex, so at least people can sit and enjoy the show, no need to fight for a seat and let the performers perform in the rain on the football field…LOL! Kidding….Anyways, back to the point, I really think Celcom should’ve prepared more tents for the VIPs and it’s rainy season so … go figure! Well, enough bitching about that..on to the show!

75385_494809114327_179959144327_7086903_5489440_n 76944_494809364327_179959144327_7086912_915627_n 73158_494809069327_179959144327_7086902_3046603_n

 

The concert start off with performances from local Sabahan bands including the bands selected during the U.O.X Campus Tour audition held at Palm Square, Centre Point KK a week before the event. I can honestly say, they’ve definitely got talent! I envy them big time! How I wish I can play at least one musical instrument, think I have to convince Mr.Pishori to teach me how to play the piano…. He he.

150029_494814664327_179959144327_7087003_7994723_n

Toi from Akademi Fantasia played the overplayed Wondergirls song Nobody over the Angklung. Well, I didn’t find it annoying played in angklung mode, so Toi did a wonderful job playing it. No surprise he’s been winning international award for this. I’m so happy to be able to witness this man in action. Well, he did sing a Spanish song and all I can say is…better stick to angklung my friend. Let other people do the singing.

148852_494817954327_179959144327_7087055_5630185_n

DJ Tony, Shawn Lee the beatboxer and MC Vibe did wonderful job as well! Besides doing their single act, the actually collaborate and made wonderful music! That was amazing! Shawn Lee is kinda cute, I fantasize that my niece Dewina is dating him.

150225_494818719327_179959144327_7087073_4858669_n

LOL! The coldness of the night slowly fades away as the night was getting hot with all these amazing performances by the artists. Wicked Aura Batucada was a one unique group, although it didn’t really do me anything like te rush of blood to the brain or goosebumps cos its THAT good but it’s something new.

I’m sad to admit this but there were only 3 artists that I really know which was Ella (the long awaited performance), the collaboration of Dicken (sorry boss, I tak kenal you but you were awesome!) and Joe Wings and also THE LEGENDARY MAN KIDAL , to be honest with you, I was at the venue during the rehearsals and I saw this legendary guy doing his thing and he even came over to us to say hi!!! I’m NOT KIDDING! He really did. Well, of course I didn’t have a picture with him la cos I didn’t bother to at that time but when I think of it now.. I should have at least take A photo with him and brag about it. I probably should’ve asked him to sign on my chest also and not shower for a week! LMAO…Kidding.  Too bad, I didn’t get to see the performance from Kulahig a Filipino band. We didn’t realize that it was already middle of the night when everything comes to an end. How sad, we wanted more! more! more! I hope that next year I will be invited to this event again. I’m sure its gonna be a BLAST as well!

76865_494827114327_179959144327_7087147_3539088_n

That’s Ella in action!!

 

Well….that’s my experience in Stompin Sabah 2010. I really did have a blast and I enjoyed the music minus the bad weather, it turned out to be a GOOD GOOD NIGHT!

 

Much Love, x

Hey ya..

 

Gonna post up entry on Hennessy Artistry Party last weekend within these few days. It was a blast and I was shocked to find out that Joe Flizzow is shorter than me?! OMG!

 

I was learning to use Camtasia earlier so I tried to make a video about H-Artistry which is not so great but I think not too bad. Enjoy. I love the song!!

 

 

Our theme for the night was The Pussycat Dolls

So, another BIG night out will be in October (Joanne’s Birthday) and she’s gonna come up with her own theme and all the 5 of us will dress up to her theme. Yay! Can’t wait.

 

Enjoy the video even if it’s not that great. Hihi.

Finally, I want to BRAG about this outfit:

This gorgeous two piece (bought separately but same material) only cost me RM16!

 

I think I want to post an entry on cheap bargains. I have lots of pretty outfits that didn’t cost me any fortune. But then, I think everyone can dress up super gorgeous below RM50 these days. Well, better finish up the long overdue drafts!!

 

See you in next posts!!

ACARA SELINGAN:

So, I stumbled upon this lady on the Internet, apparently a lingerie model, don’t know where she’s from la, either Malaysia or Singapore. If Malaysia, I didn’t know a lingerie model job exist in Malaysia. How ignorant of moi. Eventho she’s not ugly, I find something odd in her:

I find her face shape is a little bit odd. First photo is okay, was just mesmerized by that boob size on someone so slim, does not compute! Maybe just me, but does it look weird to you? (Talking about the face shape now, not boobs) So, I did some digital surgery on her face shape and came out with this:

Definitely not a cat person

Sorry for wasting your time reading this one. I stumbled upon an album of a friend of a friend in Facebook and saw this photo with a caption ‘She has one blind eye’. WHICH IS WRONG!!

 

If you look at the other eye, you can see the white area is visible but not too obvious compared to her other eye (sorry, I have problem differentiating left and right). My sister is a cat lover and she got about 8 cats at home so we can simply say she knows almost everything about cat care. So, this one my friend means the cat is SICK. The cat got fever or tummy problem (worm) and in need of meds. She is NOT a one eyed cat. With proper meds she will be okay in a week.

 

So, whoever that girl was, defo not a cat person.If not, she would’ve known that she is sick and not blind. Haha. I am just rambling and actually hungry.

 

So,gonna go eat now. See you!

Another dumb post ….

Sorry, its like a tradition for me to post up dumb posts before engaging into a heart felt blog entry. I find this so funny tho:

 

HUAHUAHUAHUAHUAHUA…

Just wondering, how many of you ever tried you know what. LOL. You know what I’m talking about. Hehe.

 

Guess what? I have a AKU TERSINGGUNG PART 3! Believe it or not…. seems like this series is something I should mark as my signature blog entry. Whenever something pisses me off, it falls into Aku Tersinggung entry. Yep, sounds good. Oh and I found a completely two different pictures of me, one a very innocent look and the other is like wasted slut. Sheesh. Something like alter egos.

 

I think this one look innocent la konon and yes ketika aku masih berkulit kuning langsat.

OMG! Guys, I strongly believe your mum won’t like me if you show her this photo of moi. I look like a bitch and a gold digger here. Nevertheless, I like this photo.

Travel – Bangkok, Thailand

I travelled to Bangkok, Thailand about a year ago and spent three weeks there living like a princess. Stayed in a nice hotel, order room service whenever I want any time of the day and spent good times watching DVD / TV Series, exploring the city alone and tanning myself. Whilst I was there, I found out that Gil Grissom can speak Thai and so does Spongebob Squarepants. and everyone on The Amazing Race. WTF?! Spoiling the fun. Isk!

 

We stayed at Prince Palace Mahanak Hotel, 13th floor. It’s a 45 degrees view of metro Bangkok. So, that was my home for about 2 weeks before we moved to a smaller room in NovoTel at Siam Paragon. Wished we stayed there since day one though, although it was a VERY spacious and elegant room (but out of date TV set) with a nice view that Prince Palace Hotel, it was quite far from the attractions, (by attractions I mean shopping complexes)!. Where, staying in NovoTel gives me the freedom to just walk from one shopping complex to another. But, having said that, it was probably good too that we moved to NovoTel the last week we were there, otherwise I would’ve spent all my Bahts on week one. Ada baik juga lah. Thanks honey for that wise decision. Mwah x.

 

View from the 13th floor:

29165_124794287531226_100000019656609_335604_6806637_n

 

Here’s some boring photos of the presidential suite

 

Big big mirror for me in the room. *LOVE*

Didn’t use this sofa much. Just sat there to wear shoes.

The big comfy king size bed where I spent most of my days and old fashion TV..eeeek….(didn't use that TV much cos everyone in there speaks Thai) and the place where I work on my hibernating skill.

John’s workstation which doubles as my dressing table. He spent most of his days sitting there.

 

Gah..apa lagi…dining table la… tempat makan. This hotel got some killer Fried Rice with Pork!!! So Yummy! I rarely eat meals here, mostly in bed.

 

So, all in all its a perfect place to stay.

 

Like I said earlier, I explored the city alone and it was fun! John was tied on UK working hours. That’s the reason why I had to do the most of the exploring alone, we were suppose to visit Vietnam and Hong Kong as well but it’s quite hard for him to be mobile when tied to that working hours so it was SAD for moi! But, not for long cos I started to enjoy being a solo Dora the Explorer. But, having him on that working hours means my sleeping and waking up time was totally fucked up too. So, I really really REGRET the fact that I didn’t get to visit the Bangkok Grand Palace cos it is closed after 12 noon and my waking up time is 1 – 2 p.m. I even made arrangement with the Tuk Tuk driver to pick me up from Prince Palace to go visit the palace. Rugi!!!

GrandPalace01

 

This is what Tuk Tuk look like and it cost around 100 – 150 baht for a ride to your destination and Tuk Tuk drivers are CRAZY drivers!! Bikin takut jak. Haha. But, it’s the easiest and most available mode of transportation. Don’t worry, it is safe, even though they are crazy drivers, they are also dedicated drivers.

 

thai-tuk-tuk

 

First weekend there, we went on a night out and visited Nana Plaza, a red light district in Bangkok, rumored to be the largest sex complex in the world …. hmmm…. NOT SURE about that, I think Angeles City in Pampanga,Philippines which is also a red light district is just as big tho. Surprisingly, we had a lot of fun there. Who would’ve thought a vagina could make a ping pong ball pop out and fly thru the audience or a boiled eggs can go in and out of pussy so easily like that?! Oh and razor blades going in and out of you know where. My knees are weak just by typing that. Talk about awful job! Wonder how much they are paid to perform such act.  Sorry, no photos of that, it was not allowed. It was something new for me. I guess you have to go there la and see for yourself.

Another infamous red light district in Bangkok is Patpong but we didn’t go there. One thing I liked about Nana Plaza was, they play good music and it’s fun seeing pondans drooling over my hot boyfriend. For the first time, I’m NOT the one who gets the attention. LOL.

 

Not the lady boys drooling over John but certainly looked like this:

Kathoey

Anyways, I made friend with one of the stripper there, gave her very generous tips and bought her drinks (the effect of too much booze) but forgot the name now cos it was sooo Thailand, hard to remember.

 

One thing I hated about being in Thailand is the fact that I am ALWAYS mistaken as being a hooker. At first, I find it funny but then when it’s making it hard for me to enter even the lift in the hotel, it’s insulting (should’ve start series of Aku Tersinggung entries long ago). I explore the city alone, remember? So, I’m in and out of the hotel quite often alone than with John. But even with John, seeing as he is an ang moh and I’m Asian, first thing that crossed their mind was I’m a hooker with an ang moh customer. And me going in and out of the hotel translates to me going there to perform a service. . Look at me!!! I don’t think I look like a hooker pun!

 

 

They stop me at the lobby and ask where I’m going etc or if I’m with John, they ask him the room number. Supposedly, they’re gonna charge more ‘cos he brings hooker back in the room. WTF?! We ignored it at first but I think John have had enough after a week having to deal with that, I don’t know what he did but it stopped after he spoke to the management. Show some respect to the GF people….please…and oh, another thing, people can never guess it right about where I am from. It’s ALWAYS Filipino or Indonesian or Thai for me. Never did one guessed Malaysian. So, in Bangkok, I’m a Thai hooker, just because I’m dating an ang moh. Couldn’t blame them tho, cos it is so popular there. It’s EVERYWHERE. But please, I don’t date him cos of money. I was NOT raised by my parents to be a gold digger but was raised to be Miss Independent. And , why NOBODY ever thought that it’s possible I am the one hiring him for services??! That’s he’s the man whore? And I’m paying him for services?  Kenapa? Muka tiada duit kah saya ni?

 

Highlight of my trip was visiting Tiger Temple and that old fashion train ride along River Kwai. I remember John was so fascinated with the countryside, loved it so much and said he needed that to clear his mind of work and to chill out and I’m like “Ish!! What’s so special?  I see this whenever I go back to Tambunan” – so not fascinated because I see it almost everyday.

We woke up at 9 a.m. for this particular trip. The earliest waking up time ever on that holiday. We wanted to visit that floating market but then, to go there it’s going to be a 1 1/2 drive and we have to wake up at 6 a.m. to be able to reach there before the floating market closes. Being the lazy ass that we are (we are the King and Queen of Sloth), we skipped floating market cos we won’t be buying fruits or veges anyway so it was not important. We reached the train station in time to get on that train and stop at another station to be picked up by our hired cab to our next destination, the Tiger Temple.

 

The train is operating on the famous Thailand-Burma Railway, there was a movie about it titled Bridge on River Kwai. The Thailand-Burma Railway also known as the Death Railway was built in 1942, it’s a 415 km railway built by the Empire of Japan during WW2. About 180,000 Asian laborers and 60,000 Allied prisoners of war (POWs) worked on the railway. Of these, around 90,000 Asian laborers and 16,000 Allied POWs died as a direct result of the project. The dead POWs included 6,318 British personnel, 2,815 Australians, 2,490 Dutch, about 356 Americans and a smaller number of Canadians. (Source: Wikipedia)

I wished they let both of us took photos together with the tigers but was not allowed. Entering the Tiger Temple, I had to wear a horrible looking soldier green pants cos I was wearing a short pants and it is not allowed to wear shorts (ladies) to enter the temple area. I think we paid 100 baht each to go in and honestly, telling you the truth there’s NOTHING great about this temple, it’s not pretty at all, it’s pretty much tanah liat everywhere and no rumputs and it’s a big desert like place with minimal sheltered walkways. Which was a pain cos to take photos with these highly sedated tigers, you have to walk for about 500 meters (I’m not so sure) and it was a long queue to take photos with the tigers but it’s worth it, you don’t get to take photos with tiger that often.

Khaosan Road is also the street I think you should visit when you go Bangkok, it’s similar to Chow Kit anyway, no surprised there but I bet you won’t see this at Chow Kit Road

Fried insects!!! Sorry peeps, I didn’t try those fried insects cos John was totally disgusted by it although I wouldn’t mind trying the fried grasshopper but he probably won’t get near me for a very long time so I skipped that and I was not too eager to try anyway.

 

And, at Chow Kit Road, I don’t think you will see such ad:

 

Whilst having drinks by the road side, this uncle with cool shades pass by with his tricycle,click-flash him and I like this photo!

Shopping time:

 

I only found out that my classmate in high school Amy Angelo is working in Bangkok the last night I was there. Such a waste…I missed shopping at Platinum Plaza, supposedly a shopping heaven for the ladies. I spent most of my bahts around Siam Square, few good shopping complexes there and if you want to buy fake M.A.C Cosmetics and any other major brands in the world at the cheapest price imaginable,then you should go to 3rd Floor of MBK Centre. Not sure if the red shirts idiots burned that one or not.

Think I spent a lot on cosmetics because it is insanely cheap! Ranging from 50 bahts to 350 bahts. And I bought my complete set of M.A.C brushes there at the price of THB350 (MYR35) and I went and checked out the price for the original one in Siam Paragon and it was around MYR80 per brush and I couldn’t tell the difference between the original one and the imitation probably because I am not a makeup artist. So, yeah, if you don’t mind buying the imitation ones and happens to visit anytime soon, don’t forget to spend you hard earned money at MBK Centre! Oh and FYI, not too far from MBK Centre there’s this place filled with beauty stalls, forgot the name, they have this hair extension service and once again so damn cheap, it’s around MYR80 per line. Menyesal pula tidak buat dulu. 

The place that I love the most was Central World, mainly because of its wide range of restaurants and food court. Haha! I can’t help it, I love food.

Its such a shame that the red shirt idiots burned it down.

I loved the movie theater in Central World. Especially the sofa seat and the McDs we sneaked in for the movie. Ha ha. Before starting a movie, they play this slide presentation honoring the King and everyone stands up when it’s played. Something new.

I love 3D movies tapi that 3D glasses menganggu lah! Watched G-Force in 3D. Rats in 3D. Boringnya…..

 

And I am happy to share that I learned how to swim on this trip! Thanks to John for being a good instructor and because I’m such an awesome student. Other than that, he taught me how to play pool and it’s not as hard as I thought it would be.

 

I also noticed that almost all the statues in Thailand are a bit pornographic:

So, all in all it was a great holiday trip and I gained weight and had to swim everyday for couple of months to get rid of my tummy fat and chubby cheek. I can’t wait for my next holiday!!!! Destination is to be confirmed. So, here I go again going on a swimming regime to get back in shape after a month of lazing around after my Bali holiday. Why do I always get fat post-holiday??!!!! Below is my travel tips but you may have different take on that. 

 

 

Travel Tips:

1. You DON’T have to bring 5 different shoes.

2. High Heels shoes are NOT necessary, you’ll ALWAYS end up going to clubs on your flat sandals anyway. But, I tried walking on the streets of Khaosan Road in my 3.5” heels on our first night out there. Not too bad.
3. Bring MORE undies. I tend to shower 3 times a day so to pack extra undies is necessary.

4 You'’ll end up buying new clothes on your travels so don’t bother bringing too much clothes, and dare I say, you can recycle it 2 or 3 times.

5. Jacket. Airports and major shopping complexes and movie theater especially in Asian countries have only ONE default air-con temperature : FREEZING COLD. So, you gotta bring jacket with you.

6. Network roaming – handphone and make sure if your phone is prepaid, reload at least MYR50 or more. You gonna need it.

7. ATM Card roaming
8. Currency conversion

9. Universal socket adapter.

10. Netbook / laptop

11.A good book – for when your laptop batter die.

12. Extension socket (optional) – assuming that you gonna have to charge your digicam battery, handphone and laptop at the same time.

 

That’s all for now.

 

Much Love, x
