How to Take Dumb Pictures in Terengganu

Sightseeing in Terengganu is kind of quiet-ish during Chinese New Year... (What am I saying, it's quiet all year round!) And the traffic jams in town are so bad around this time of the year!!! Why?!! Because people balik kampung (go back to hometown) in the holidays, even the non-Chinese! So if you're stuck in Terengganu in the holidays like me, here's a few LOL things to do if you're dead bored. And love cam-whoring.

1. Take pictures at the wonderfully ruined Terengganu Sports Stadium (which fell down after a year of of being constructed). It makes an awesome backdrop for just about anything.

You can also try the ever popular jumping shot. Warning: Hair will fly everywhere and looks best with a good pose. This is also part of Number 2 of Things To Do in Terengganu.

2. Do a jumping shot just about anywhere in Terengganu. They're really fun to do and you should try it before your age demands you to stop jumping for propriety's sake.

This one was next to Setiu River

3. Go to a relatively quiet place in Terengganu and do muscle shots. If you get caught in this silly act, ignore the sniggers and stares that are commonplace with some of the locals here.

4. Visit one of Terengganu's waterfalls! Sekayu Waterfall is a popular destination here for families, Chemerong Waterfall is a bit more quieter and relaxing though it's an hour long trek to the main waterfall. But it's the highest waterfall in Malaysia! How can you not go?! :)


5. Then there's Terengganu Chinatown!! The food here is so-so but here is also where Telaga Low Tiey (Low Tiey Well) is located. This well saved many people way back when during a drought when other wells were polluted and a plague had swept over this area. This happened in the 17th Century, and a good man Low Tiey provided water supply for the people and thus they named the well after him...

That's all I have for this post. If I get any more ideas I'll post some more later... I was just trying to show you what you can do in Terengganu besides the islands and the museum. There's also Kenyir Lake and the pasar malam (night market) with cheap delicious food but I don't have pics of those... Wheee~

Funniest Malaysian Names!

I laughed out loud for 10 straight minutes reading this old post at Mr. Badak's website! If you must know, I was searching for the meaning of mulau (crazy in Kadazan) because I wasn't quite sure of the meaning (I'm a poor excuse for a Kadazan), and I stumbled across this. It's not even the post itself (about an unfortunate man named Mulau bin Burit) that was the absolute funniest, it was the commenters! Teachers and government workers come across the funniest names...

Imagine being named...
Alias bin Mati
Injin A/L Bot (changed his name already...)
Penus (Oh dear.)
Labiah binti Kondong
Ignor Ingor
Blueberi anak Dewberi (This made me laugh the hardest!)

Lee Je Hoon to Belt Some Notes for Paparotti!

How cute is this piece of news? Everybody's favorite actor gone for military service, Lee Je Hoon, is acting as a gangster who wants to sing! Jang Ho (Lee Je Hoon) has a talented voice, but because of his poor family background, he became a gang member. Nevertheless, Jang Ho still likes to sing and desperately wants to become a singer. He enlists the help of Sang Jin (Han Suk Kyu) who used to be a well regarded performer in Italy, but is now a music teacher at a local high school in a small city. He's not the most passionate of teachers. Kang So Ra plays Sook Hee, a classmate who has a crush on Jang Ho. 
This movie is based on the true story of Kim Ho Joong, who first appeared on Korean TV Show, Star King, on July 18, 2009. During the program, Kim Ho Joong surprised people with his vocal abilities and also made people cry because of his back ground story. He grew up as a troubled kid who joined gangs, but because of his grandmother he began to sing in earnest. Stills and the …

Gawky Poses People Do Best Forgotten

Ever seen a pose that you thought looked terrible even though the person doing it is a mega hot fiiiiiine piece of...well, you get my drift. I'm sure if I asked a guy, they would have plenty of other suggestions but here are just three that occurred to me while typing out this post.

1. The Angry Chicken Pose

E.g. Sohee from the Wonder Girls (middle girl) - BTW their new album WONDER WORLD is out! Check it out! :)


I have never seen anyone pull this off and still look attractive. (Also known as The Stomach Ache or Pelvic Thrust)

2. Woman Draped on a Car Pose

No offense to auto babe ladies everywhere, but I can never find this not tacky. It must be difficult to twist yourself in a sultry pose on a heap of metal (something I, a mere mortal, can never hope to achieve) and I'm glad that at least you're being paid for it.


3. Cutesy Asian Poses

There's a whole multitude of these but I'm pretty sure you're familiar with the like. E.g. Peace Sign (I'm totally guilty of this…
