It's Our Time to Shine!

Meant to blog about this earlier while it was still fresh in my mind, but I guess a few days doesn't make any difference. I heard that an 8TV crew was coming over to interview us at MERC so I was like, yea, must be another over-excited and energetic Chinese dude exclaiming how beautiful the place is (due to my experience of watching 8TV cooking shows). Then we found out it was Henry Golding coming over, and we were literally screaming in the office! (Don't deny it, girls!!) XD

Okay, so I made a terrible first impression. It kinda went like this.

(Introducing ourselves.)
HG: Hi, what's your name?
Me: *stunned* Henry Golding...
HG: That's my name! I asked for yours!
(Everyone bursts into laughter)

Yeah, that's pretty much how ditzy I can be in front of hot guys. I even got tricked into holding his hand for the interview by him and the crew, who initially said yes, this was standard protocol, and all started giggling when I fell for it. =_= That was when Petrina said we should learn not to believe anything they say.

Diving was short and sweet, visibility was just so-so that day... One of the best parts of the day was finally getting to try the food at Alu-alu Seafood Restaurant!! James (the chef) is amazing!! My fave was the beancurd and vegetables. :D

L-R:Jeffry, Khairi, Petrina, Amin, Asman & Henry, Front Row: Cheryle, Kristen and me

I get the feeling they do this all the time!

Anyway, the whole crew was genuinely friendly and playful! I guess you have to be when you go traveling around meeting lots of people all the time. The show's called Without Boundaries and the first season's about islands. I'll be tuning in when it airs (hopefully when I'm not in the office) and it should be good!

Henry and Cheryle (one of my fave shots because of Asman leaping in the background, haha!!)

We cam-whored towards the end of the day so everyone was visibly tired out by then. I kept a reminder of the day which set the girls in stitches on the boat back to the city. Ah, Vanessa, bless your crazy soul. Vienna (the MERC princess) was on holiday in Paris at the time with dear Sarah Passoni (we all miss you lots, soriot!) and told us to send her regards to HG!

All in a day's work... Till next time! ♥

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)
Bau Taie
Padang bin Ragut - Keningau/cattle owner
Putih Kusambut Hitam Kulambung - Lahad Datu
Tulis bin Pen - policeman
Duit bin Ringgit - policeman

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…
