Stompin' Sabah 2010!

My friend had tickets to go see Stompin' Sabah 2010 at Jesselton Point (organized by Xpax) so my cousin and I tagged along. It was raining like mad that night and it didn't seem to let up even 3 hours later when we finally decided to show (it rains almost every night here these days). Turns out the tickets were VVIP(!) so it was awesome, we got to stand/sit in a tent and eat food sponsored by Imperial Hotel.

The view from the tent with Wicked Aura on the big screen.

I think Ella was the biggest name there but I didn't get to see her perform. Instead I watched performances by Shawn Lee (beatboxing prodigy), a funny guy who seems to be AF6's Toi aaaand a Singaporean band called Wicked Aura. That's as far as we got till we sped off to party elsewhere as it was getting late. It ended at 2am!

My cousin, Didi. Doesn't she look like a doll?

I recognized DJ Jin from at the tent but I wondered whether to approach him for a photo or not but alas, courage failed me. What can I say, I'm very shy around good-looking guys... ^^ Anyway when I got back, turns out I did get a pic with him! He's the guy wearing the white shirt on the left.

Just realized how scary I look here!

YES. I AM THE LAMEST PERSON I KNOW. Can't wait for next year all the same! =)

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!)
Gary Forceps (Waa, future scientist)

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…
