The Bimbobum Show

I’ve decided to be a talk show host. How difficult can it be, to have my own talk show?
I don’t like channel surfing and coming across talk shows hosted by celebrities, e.g. Oprah, David Letterman, Tyra Banks, etc. OK, David Letterman isn’t that bad, but the ones for women ………. o_O
The non-celebrity guests come on tv to air their dirty laundry. Who the hell cares that she stole her best friend’s boyfriend 3 years ago and now feels bad, so please put her on air so she can publicly apologise to her ex-best friend? Or that he doesn’t understand why he’s mistreating his wife so they’d like to talk about their problems in front of the whole wide world and gain sympathy from Oprah?
Gimme a break. You know what I’m talking about.
“I don’t know what’s wrong with me. *wipe away tears* I really love her, but I can’t stand to sleep in the same bed with her. She’s my wife, I should make love to her, but I enjoy looking at child pornography on the internet instead.”
Oprah or Tyra Banks or Ricki Lake will then answer, “You know you’re wrong, don’t you? How does it feel to realise your mistake now? What do you think you should do about it?”
Sad hubby will then answer mournfully, while sobbing on his wife’s shoulder, “I don’t know. *sobs pathetically* I’ll make it up to her …… I want our marriage to work. I just hope she’s patient enough to wait for me to be cured.”
-_-
Or the ex-best friend:
“I realised that I shouldn’t have stolen my best friend’s boyfriend. *sniffs* After all these years, despite being happy with my boyfriend, I realised that she has been my only best friend. After losing her, I’ve been lost. Everytime I look at him, I see my best friend …..”
B-O-R-I-N-G.
Chinese believe that you should not air your dirty laundry in public. Private affairs remain behind closed doors. The westerners think differently, of course – the more publicised, the better!
So, I’m going to propose to xes for a talk show on www.xes.cx. It’s so easy! Who would like to be our first guests on the show? ;D Make sure your laundry is dirty – the dirtier the better!
p.s. No, send your real laundry to the kedai dobi lah, not to me, thank you!

Taman Negara 23 November 2006 – 25 November 2006

Back from Taman Negara!
Taman Negara is one of the national parks in Peninsula Malaysia. It encompasses 3 states, Pahang, Kelantan and Terengganu. It is well know for its ecotourism.
I procured the services of NKS HOTEL & TRAVEL SDN. BHD (Tel : 03 – 20720336 / website: http://www.taman-negara-nks.com/) to organise my trip to Taman Negara. The cost was around RM425 which is inclusive of accommodation, transport, food and also activities. It was a steal!
My trip to Taman Negara lasted for 3 days 2 nights. The journey to Taman Negara took quite some time. First, we had to take a 3 hours bus ride to Jerantut, followed with a short ride to Kuala Tembeling and lastly a 3 HOURS boat ride to Kuala Tahan.

Paris Hilton, an Idol

“Nothing in this world can stop us tonight …….”
Yikes, I can’t help but to sing along to that when it comes on air!
Are you a fan of Paris Hilton, the ever famous socialite whose name everyone is familiar with? The one who’s prettier than her sister and is trying to be a singer?
Have you heard her songs on the air or watched the music videos? I can’t stand the videos, but I have to admit that unfortunately, her songs are catchy. I am one of the sad ones who actually find myself singing along to her songs, God help me.
I admit, it’s so embarrassing. Anyone else here having the same problem?
I don’t know why some young girls make her their idol, though. What good example can she be setting? Partying and changing boyfriends like there’s no tomorrow, drugs and others.
Oh, not forgetting her limited vocabulary!
“That’s hot.”
“He’s gorgeous.”
The two most over-used words in her vocabulary – hot and gorgeous.
Check out her t-shirt here.
Check out her doll – comes with Tinkerbel and crabs Crabby.
A Hello Kitty Paris Hilton?
Wanna buy a sex doll – supposedly her?
OK, I got to admit, I don’t really hate her …..
p.s. Sorry, this is just a rant. 😉

Melbourne Shuffle Competition in Up2U club, miri.15th-17th November 2006

After so many months of discussion and deliberation, it’s finally happened – the first shuffle competition in Miri, on the 15th and 17th of November. With the RM1000 prize money for the first place, contestants from all over Sarawak flew or even drove to Miri’s notorious club – Up2U, just for two nights of fighting it out on the dancefloor.
The competition on Wednesday (15th November) night was merely the elimination round, designed to select ten finalists out of the nineteen participants. Friday (17th November) night was a more serious affair, with several of the contestants exhausted to the point of being carried off the dance-floor halfway through their performances.
Such publicity! Such excitement! All that sweat – and maybe secretly shed tears, and the surprisingly good performances… and three winners were picked out of the nineteen contestants.
Alex Chua of Miri walked away the second runner-up, with his consistent performance and overwhelming popularity among the crowd. Wouldn’t say he was outstanding in any way, other than the fact he did well technically, so we’ll just move on to the next winner.

Just Thai @ 1 Utama, New Wing


I have often walked by the restaurant and wondered whether the food was good. I’d scrutinise the list of food outside the restaurant and figured out that I didn’t want to eat just a plate of pineapple fried rice.
Finally, I gave it a go. If you notice, nowadays FNB (food and beverage) places pay close attention to decor and ambience and … er, yeah, that.
So I liked the decor.
I like fried food, too, although too much is not a good thing. ;(
