Guinness Stout


When I was young, I found a can of beer in my fridge. I’ve seen people drinking beer on TV and they seem to enjoy it. So out of curiosity, I took the beer and had a sip of it. It ended up in the rubbish bin thereafter. It was terrible!

Years later, I decided to give it a try again. It wasn’t so bad. However, I soon realize that whenever I drink beer, I get blocked nose and a few KGs heavier thereafter.

Then I found Guinness!

It was bitter at first but after a few drinks, I got fond of it. It tastes creamy and thick. Unlike beer, the foam of is best part of the drink!
After drinking it for a few years, I realize that Guinness has a long history behind it. It was created 250 years ago in Ireland by a man by the name Arthur Guinness. 4 years later, he acquired a 9,000 year lease on the four-acre brewery at St. James’s Gate from Mark Rainsford for an annual rent of £45. The lease still exists today at the Guinness Storehouse in Dublin!

And this month, Guinness is sending someone to Dublin, Ireland!

Rice Crisp by Mister Potato


Mister Potato has been around since 1992. (Pic credit :Kyspeaks)

They recently launched a new type of crisps which it is made from a combination of rice and potato! It has no MSG and 20% less fat than conventional fried potato chips. It is also cholesterol and trans fat free. Notwithstanding the lack of these substances, it still tastes like potato chips – crunchy and tasty!

It comes in 4 flavours, BBQ, Original, Hot & Spicy, Sour Cream & Onion.

I bought the sour cream and & onion flavour. Quite crispy and has a tinge of sour cream and onion. Taste is not too strong but very additive. The best part is, it wont give you bad breath :p Oh, it tastes great with mayonnaise!

Speaking about mayonnaise, I like my rice crisps dipped with condiments. For example, melted cheese, cream cheese, tortilla chips sauce or

Fried chicken and sambal..Nasi Lemak style!

Tried this while at Village Park. Decided to replace rice with the Rice Crisps by Mister Potato. In view of the absence of cholesterol and trans fat, I can now afford to mix rice crisps with other oily stuff 😀

Rice Crisps by Mister Potato will also be treating Nuffnangers to a ‘Snack & Screen’ session on 27 May 2010 at 9:30pm at Cathay Cineplex Damansara, Nuffnangers will get to watch Prince of Persia : The Sands of Time. Bring your on condiments cause there will be loads of Rice Crisps to eat while watching the show! More details here.

Astro B.yond TVC Commercial

Remember the Astro B.yond TVC that I was talking about? Well, it’s out!

It was first shown in the Astro B.yond Bloggers’ Night. I forgot to bring my camera on that night hence no post about it. -_-

Anyway, here’s the video!

The bloggers that are featured in the TVC are as follows:

Astro B.yond

One of the newest technological advancements has arrived in Malaysia. Finally, Malaysians can now watch High-Definition (HD) broadcast, all thanks to ASTRO.

HD channels present a sensory viewing experience with sharper pictures, more vibrant colours, cinematic surround sound, and a wider screen – giving audiences crystal clear details and colours like never before. It delivers details that are five times greater than that of regular Standard-Definition (SD) programming (the standard shows we are watching on Malaysian TV are SD), and it comes with the 5.1 Dolby Digital Surround Sound.

ASTRO has launched the HD service under its brand name ASTRO B.yond. HD broadcasting had been around ages ago. Australia started its HD broadcasting since 2001. If not for ASTRO, HD broadcasting would not have seen light in Malaysia.

On HD content, ASTRO will start with four HD channels – ASTRO Supersport HD, HBO HD, National Geographic Channel HD and HISTORY HD on 18 December 2009, followed by ESPN HD in January 2010. FIFA World Cup 2010 will also be in HD. It will be so clear until you can see the sweat of your favourite footballers!

With HD content, you can watch shows on HDTV like this. Experience sharper images!

Customers can sign up for ASTRO B.yond at or call the ASTRO customer Hotline 1300 82 3838.

Customers have a choice to sign up at an additional service fee of RM20 per month and a commitment of 12 months. As part of the new B.yond service, customers will get the new B.yond box, new smart card, new outdoor unit dish, HD Multimedia Interface (HDMI) cable and new remote control. New set-up installation fee will be waived in exchange for the existing box.

Astro B.yond TVC Shoot

Last week, I participated in the Astro B.yond TVC shoot at Desa Park City. Other bloggers such as Beautifulnara, Kimberlycun, Kyspeaks, Saimatkong, ShaolinTiger, SixthSeal, Sultan Muzaffar, Tziaaa and RedMummy were involved as well. We were given slots to introduce ourselves and also our new year resolution for 2010. Other questions were also thrown to us during the shoot.

Being in front of a camera is no easy task for me. I cocked up a few times. The poor cameraman had to refilm me over and over again.

When speaking in front of the camera, I had to ensure that my English is perfect. No grammatical mistakes etc. However, it was not easy. I think I did screw up a bit. Now I understand why former Ms. Singapore, Ris Low screwed up her interview with leopard preenz and boomz.

Also, it was bloody hot. We had to speak under the sun. Since the videos are shot in HD, I bet you can see our sweat dripping off us.

Anyway, here are some pictures from that day!

So ‘ngam’ caught Kimberlycun, SixthSeal, and RedMummy sipping drinks. Many thanks to Nicholas Chay for buying us drinks.

For the first time, was featured on the Star Newspaper!

Blog enthusiasts collect clues in a race to win Malaysian Grand Prix party invitations.


IT’S amazing what some people would do to get special invites to a Malaysian Grand Prix party.

Avid bloggers and blog-readers hunted high and low in a race that began in the physical world, which then moved on to cyberspace, before they ended up racing to a physical finish line.

The event, dubbed “Spot The Raving Blogger” began on March 1 and will culminate at one of Kuala Lumpur’s most prominent landmarks, the KL Tower.

Nigel Low, 31 (second from right) was one of the first participants to show up at the ‘Spot the Raving Blogger’ race, which had contestants hunting clues that would lead them to a final meeting point. Low won himself passes to the official Malaysian Grand Prix party at the KL Tower.

On the first day of the race, participants were given a clue in The Star that identified a local blogger. On that individual’s blog, more clues were posted which directed the participants to other blogs, over the course of 10 days.

The last clue, which read, “A coffee house in the new wing of 1-Utama” led the participants to a final location – Starbucks Coffee at 1-Utama Shopping Complex where the five bloggers were waiting to be identified at 1.45pm.

Race participants reached the location panting, after they had run all around the shopping complex in search of the right outlet. The first 50 participants to arrive each won passes to the Speedzone Tour 2007, the official Malaysian Grand Prix party.

“I think this event is a fun way to give out passes, instead of the usual slogan-writing contests,” one of the featured bloggers, Suanie (, said. “The clues are a new and interesting way to get people to join in.”

The five bloggers were selected based on the popularity of their blogs as well as their blog themes.

Suanie, who has been blogging for several years, usually writes on music, lifestyle and clubbing – which made her an ideal candidate for the contest.

The others who were involved were food blogger KY, 29 (; lawyer Xes, 26 (; accountant Fireangel, 27 (; and karate practitioner Gareth, better known as Shaolin Tiger, 28 (

One of the race participants, Nigel Low, followed the clues all the way and was thrilled to win the free passes.

“I’m also glad I’m finally getting to know the bloggers in person,” the 31-year-old human resource manager said. “This contest is a very interesting and new way of doing things.”

Low is one of the many people who will be partying at the KL Tower terrace event, on April 7, which will feature local DJ extraordinaire Joey G alongside international DJs such as D-formation, Marco V and Yoji Biomehanika.


I told some of my friends about it and their first reaction was:
