Kpop Influences in Malaysia

I nearly had an epileptic fit when I heard the lyrics and saw the promo pics of the K-pop influenced Malaysian band called Max 24/7! I love that Malaysians are starting to dance in their music videos and not just jump around singing rock songs or sway melodiously to music (which is what I look like when I try to 'dance').

However that's the only good thing I can say about this band. The song's vaguely catchy but it's catchy in a I-like-to-sing-this-to-annoy-ppl kind of way. A Rebecca Black song. Dance needs a little more energy. At least a handful are not bad-looking. Potential. Weird how the girl band Gula-gula (mostly comprised of Sabahan gals) is getting slammed more than these guys by Malaysian gossip rags and blogs. Probably has to do with the girls being 'sexy' I guess. But they do need a better song.

BTW, congrats to Ruffneckz who won the Kpop Hitz Talent Show and got to perform their dance at LotteWorld in Seoul! Previously this year, they also won the Halo! YG Day competition! I love love love their spunk and I hope to watch one of their performances one day. I've been a fan since the Korean Wave Contest they had last year organized by KTO. They didn't even place but I think they rocked the house.

Here's a few clips of their performances.

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...

Injin A/L Bot (changed his name already...)

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…
