If I could be someone for a day...

I would like to be...a PORNSTAR!


I want to be a noted fashion photographer. Or, a noted photographer. I love to take pictures. In fact, I would like to own a DSLR sometime this year (crossing my fingers really hard).

If I am a noted fashion photographer, I could be on America's Next Top Model, and Tyra bank will introduce me on TV. Wait. Probably Jay will make the announcement instead...

"Today your task is to take off all your clothes cos we are shooting all of you NUDE! And, to be able to do that we need a photographer. Let me present to you noted fashion photographer, Mr. Ethan Wong..."

That sounds too. Weird. Haha.

BUT, I get to shoot all these...

AND, these...

And these...

How cool is that? But, I'm not even an amateur. But, do you want to be photographed? : )

Seven Most Bizarre

The things I read on the internet...

  1. Boy's screaming kills chicken. Don't laugh. This happened in Beijing and the court has ruled that the cause of death of over 1000 chickens was the screaming of a 4 year-old boy. A villager was quoted as saying the little boy bent over the henhouse window, screaming for a long time, after being scared by the dog. Duh, right?

  2. A court orders a man, purportedly a drug user, to memorise the Quran or else he will be imprisoned. He has got 6 months to completely memorise it. C'mon, even Yoda can't do that!

  3. This happened right behind our house. Ok, seriously. It happened in KL. A 7.1 metre long python was caught and apparently it swallowed 9 dogs! Fucking greedy SOB, ain't it? Tsk tsk tsk...

  4. And, still in Malaysia, I am sure all of you have heard about this 'Supernatural' thing that happened to this girl in Kelantan (or is it Terrengganu?) that gem stones grew from her toe! Yes, her very unattractive toe! According to my boss' theory, she is single and fugly and she needs attention as such so that her mom can marry her off. Me-ow! But, I kinda buy that theory, seriously. How else can you explain it? Doc Paul, yes?

  5. 'Polite nude jogger shocks hikers, bikers'. Nude! And jogging! In sunny California! If you're wondering if he is as good looking as Brad Pitt, here's what the people have got to say, "He's frumpy. Plain. Not in good physical shape," Bowdoin said. "It's not a pretty sight.' Need I say more?

  6. "A novel in which the entire narrative consists of mobile phone text messages was published Wednesday in Finland. ''The Last Messages'' tells the story of a fictitious executive in Finland who resigns from his job and travels throughout Europe and India, keeping in touch with his friends and relatives only through text messages."
    Seriously, do you really want to read a book that's written in text messages? So blardy gimmicky!Enough is ENOUGH!

  7. "While people can't see ultraviolet light, spiders can, and it turns out to be important to their mating, researchers report in this week's online edition of the journal Science. It seems that both male and female jumping spiders, Cosmophasis umbratica, have markings on their faces and legs that glow in ultraviolet light, researchers led by Daiqin Li at the National University of Singapore reported. Many animals possess UV vision and use it for foraging, navigation and sexual selection, Li explained." How sexy. Kinda remind me of the Lava lamp people use...and think it's sexy. Eek.

Mary had a 'fishy' Friend/s

I was rushing to the gym this morning cos I will be late if I'm not out from the house in 5 minutes. And as I opened the door, I saw a figure outside the door grill - it was 5 to 8 in the morning and the corridor was not lit. Ghost was the first thing that came into my mind until...


'It' shouted.

THEN, it dawned in me that it was my neighbour's lover. Or, one of her lovers- Note the 's'. So, no ghost. And, so. This man outside my house noticed me as I opened my front door. This man had been to here for quite a few times. And, this man, I believe is not her father.

"Darling!" This time more passionate.

Muffled replies from the inside of the house.

"OK. O-k." Dejected, he walked slightly closer to my house and yes, he started a conversation with me. The first encounter with him (about a month back), I ignored him completely cos he was too busy with his cellphone.

"Going for a work out?" he asked rather nicely.

"Yeah. I'm hitting the gym," I replied nonchalantly. I wanted to say "I am really late for my class so don't talk to me" but I figured if I did, he will ask me MORE questions. So, I dropped that.

"Good. That's good. How often do you go to the gym in the morning?"

"I'll try twice a week. If not it would be in the evening."

"That's very good," he smiled.

This man looks like a good man. Seriously. Ive to say my 1st impression of him was a sleazy SOB but today he had changed to sleazy nice uncle who just wanna get off. Perhaps, his wife is just too, naggy; or worse, menapausing. I don't know. *Shrugs*

Ok, the point is, my neighbour has got a lot of erm, 'interesting' visitors. Sometimes, I would see a girl who walk and talk like a man (girl-man). Other times, a couple of men who look like construction workers visiting her in the evenings. No, no, definitely a local. I don't think she digs chili or rotten guava armpit smell, yaknow.

I am just curious. Some Chinese would call me "pat", like the number 8. Sometime ago, we heard her screamed at Girl-man. Like, right outside her famous door! She told her to pissed off and after 8 years, you did this to me and the shits... just like when a healthy young couple would break-up. In fact, I think she threw her out of the house. But that was too funny cos I think my neighbour is the one cheating Girl-man. I could be damn wrong about it but how many old, perverted looking men that she calls father?


The story of Mary to be continued...

ps: ALL my fish died! Damn. I will be on an abstinence, not from sex, but from fish for a month to pay respect to my poor fish. Sigh.

Somewhere over the rainbow...

It was a fruitful and enjoyable (scorching hot, too) Sunday at the weekend bazaar. Made some friends and foe - one vendor took advantage of a vacant spot next to him by displaying his goods on the stall. I got cheesed off I said to myself I can't let this went unreported. I lodged a complain to the management. Trust a Chinese to be kiasu.

Anyways, we got home just to find out that Sammy passed away. It was floating motionlessly. It was damn sad but it didn't come as a surprise to us cos we've detected something was wrong with the fish in our little aquarium; Neither Ad or me could figure out what is it. I scooped out Sammy from the tank, and promptly fed it to Coco and Bo - the cats that we are cat-sitting.

OK. I am just. Kidding. I buried it instead. Then...

Ad: Hey, cmon! Look at this! Come quickly!

He was opening the sliding door, completely ecstatic about something outside. I was like, 'What's up. The rain so nice to see meh?'

Ad: No, no. Hurry up! You wont believe this!

I kissed Sammy goodbye (before frying it) and walked over to Ad. At that moment, I could not believe what I saw cos it was just...surreal. I was completely blown away and I very quickly took my cellphone and took a few shots of it. That was the first time of my life that I was so close to seeing a rainbow, no, two rainbows so clearly. It was astounding.

Speaking of rainbow, I spotted Katherine McPhee's album cover on the internet this morning. I clicked on the link and there she is, wearing a pair of black vinyl boots, had a hair extension and her legs spread eagle. The writer was not very kind to her, of cos, saying that the prostitute wants her whore-boots back. Mee-ow. The writer also implied that she had hired Diva Mariah's fashion stylist. I was puzzled. When is it that looking sexy is associated to Mariah Carey? I guess people can't accept that she did a 360 change from her goody two shoes look on the Idol last year to this super sexy, super hot, and super gorgeous diva.

If anything, she is definitely much, much, much, MUCH prettier than Mariah Carey 'Puff'. And. Yes, sex sells. Hannah T can attest that.

And since she graduated from the school of American Idol, 1st runner up, I wanna talk about American Idol. Is it just me, or Paula Abdul is getting trashier? Or, half of the time she's buzzed? Did anyone spot Simon Cowell's hideous hairdo? The erm, auditions in Seattle - FREAK SHOW? Man, so entertaining. I love television. I only wish they show Janice Dickinson's Modelling Agency purrrrrrrrrrrr........

ps: I did not fry Sammy, if you must ask :)

Project Aquarium: Part Satu

A very long time ago, I had spoken about having an aquarium in my house. I had, in fact, posted on my blog that I will endeavour to get one, and even come up with a name for my ad-hoc project, aptly titled, erm, Project Aquarium.

And, may I present to you my "Project Aquarium" and it's "inhabitants"...

Many thanks to Diva V for making my project successful...hehehe....

Part Dua of Project Aquarium would be to look for a funky console for the aquarium. Still searching. Stay tune.

I am also babysitting 2 cats as big as a mini cougar - many thanks to Diva V, no less. She impulsively adopted 2 cats from the weekend bazaar and cos she had to travel outstation this week, I have been given the honour to take care of them.

I am not a cat fan. I just like to play with them, not rear them. Poop scooping is not a fun thing to do, trust me. But, I have grown to like them a little bit. Like, 25%?

Random thoughts of nothing about something

The weather has been quite unpredictable and I am not only talking about Johor - for the cavemen, 100,000 people had been evacuated from several parts of Johor because of flood and from the report, it doesn't look like it is improving any sooner. It reminds me of New Orleans almost a year back.

I pledge everyone to provide whatever contribution you can to the victims of flood in Johor. The kids and the old people are the one who will suffer the most.

The weather, yeah. Every year right after December, we all know the weather will change from moonsoon rain (I'd like to call it "pissing" weather) to hot and humid especially if the dates are nearer to Chinese New Year. It hasn't been very hot nor humid. In fact, it has been breezy, windy and cloudy with occassional rain in the late afternoon. Some parts of America is facing ice storm, whilst there have been reports in Europe that there was no winter in December.

What is happening?

I am not panicking cos eventually we all will die. I am just curious if we will go through what the Dinosaurs had been through before. If so, I think it will be much worse.

Ok, let's talk about something less depressing. Let's see. Justin Timberlake and Cameron Diaz broke up (duh, like no one knows already), oh oh...American Idol is starting this week and Heroes the next week!

So duh wan :-/

You all have to watch 'Dream Girls'. It is definitely one of the best movies I have seen for months. The set-up, the costumes, the choreography of the musical and the singing! A knock-out performance from everyone, especially, first timer, ex-American Idol Jennifer Hudson and Eddie Murphy. Ms Beyonce was really the character that will pull audience to watch it. Even of they do not know so much about African American history. Very, very good. FYI, I haven't seen a good movie since 'Happy Feet', seriously.

Anyways, I have finally got a brand spanking look for the blog. I am quite pleased with the result. I hope you like it too.

Dear Readers,

Sorry for the inconvenience caused, if there's any. I am currently revamping the site and I am still quite wishy washy how I'd like it to be in terms of designs, layouts, etc.

You will see a bit more changes in the next few days and I promise I will wrap up before Sunday.

So duh wan!

"I think I have to pluto that piece of Ikea furniture since one screw is missing."

PLUTO? I hear you asking? Yeap, pluto as in the ex-planet ...erm, the planet that's been axed, so it is official an ex-planet in our solar system is now a word. This is what the American Dialect Society's president, Mr. Cleveland Evans said, "Our members believe the great emotional reaction of the public to the demotion of Pluto shows the importance of Pluto as a name. We may no longer believe in the Roman god Pluto, but we still have a sense of personal connection with the former planet." Consequently, the word Pluto has officially become 2006's Word of the Year (clap clap).

The definition of "pluto" or to "pluto" is "to demote or devalue someone or something," much like what happened to the former planet last year when the General Assembly of the International Astronomical Union decided Pluto didn't meet its definition of a planet.

"Plutoed" won in a runoff against "climate canary," defined as "an organism or species whose poor health or declining numbers hint at a larger environmental catastrophe on the horizon."
Other words considered: murse (man's purse, DON'T LAUGH.), flog (a fake blog that promotes products) and macaca (an American citizen treated as an alien). Yahoo news

Cool, right? Let's make a sentence using these words:

"You hired another macaca after you have plutoed the other one because he was supposedly carrying a pink murse to work and started a flog selling Penis Enlargement pills?"


I have a word that we often used back in college days ... arghh... how I miss those days. Arcade, mamak sessions till 4am, drinking beer at the garden, meeting up dodgy strangers thinking that they're sincerely wanting a friendship (cue: "Yellow", Coldplay). Sigh... ok, ok... i digress. Yeah, we love to use this word often used by our good fren JL back in college, "Duh".

I know it is a common word and Homer Simpson has his own version -D'oh! But, our version is quite different cos we used it in every context possible. For instance, if a fren is late for a club's meeting and he got scolding from the Editor/President, we'd said, "ter-duh already". Here how it's used in a conversation.

"You know, JT tried to make a pass on big boobs *Sim last night at the playground but big boobs Sim grabbed hold of him and started punching his face," said round face *Moon.

"So duh wan! Go get some porn and wank lah", replied pimply faced *Shawn.

"I know! Now, everyone ter-duh already at the meeting this morning cos of what happened last night. Blardy JT should know better than making a pass on big boobs Sim. Now her fat legs girlfriend suurre gonna come after him."

"Yeah, lesbian bashing! Hahahahaha," Shawn snorted.

"Duh lah you, " round face Moon rolled her eyes.

*The names have been changed to protect the interest of the person.

Another Gay Sunshine Day

::Muse updates. Click to enlarge.

Argh I've been so busy that I do not have the time to compile my Best of 2006, let alone blog it. Maybe I can do a quick one now but I am quite anal when it comes to matter as such.

Besides, I do not like to do things in a hurry (most of the time, I do not, really). Anyways, I wanna talk about this gay movie I've bought with a lot of other titles such as, 'Babel', 'Scoop', 'The Black Dahlia'...

"Another Gay Movie" is the title. I kid you not. Gay teenager seeking for a fck, mastubation, porn and yeah, love. Oh, and the story is loosely based on 'American Pie 1" so you can imagine the silly banters and distasteful a certain extent, it is a soft-porn flick. Quite entertaining if you're lookin' for a light movie to watch after a hard day at work. A word of warning tho'. If you're straight or a gay-basher gal, you might just loathe this movie. Seriously.

Last night, I picked up a postcard or brochure or watchamitecallit card that illustrates two sailors icons and at it's back it says Sanctuary Cruise. Sailors, sanctuary, liquid, bar, sun, fun...didn't take a genius to figure that out that they're creating an awareness of a certain gay cruise docking in our shore soon, no? I was a little perplexed that they would actually allow gay cruise this part of the world, let alone our 'sacred' land. Not convince, I got online this morning and checked out the website and spank me Mr Cruise! It is gay cruise and right in the heart of Asia! Of cos, some smart biz dude from down south started it and he/she/shim is creating a wave (sic) all around Asia! Now, the masculine Marys will be delighted *wink*

And the other gay thing...the other thing that made me gay...whoa, sensitive. Happy things-lah that I would like to talk about is the recent announcement of our budget airline, Air Asia and it's brand spanking new routes. For the uninitiated, AA is flying to Manchester, Hang Zhou and Tianjin. AND, future routes include Melbourne, Tokyo and India? That's so cool. I love Mr. Tony Fernandes

Ah, maybe I should look up Nancy Sinatra's 'Another Gay Sunshine Day' and dream of my sanctuary cruise with hot D&G-esque model waiters serving me Tinto De Verano


ps: I am looking for old/used console table, or cupboard, or rack or used furniture. Anyone selling? Or, throwing? Give me a buzz, ok. If it is from Ikea, don't call me. Thanks

Habitual Behaviours

Recently, I have acquired this habitual "thing". Well, actually, a couple of "habitual things", really. Ok, fine. More than a couple.

1) I like to experiment with old clothes to make it look different. I think shin-length folded jeans is funky, for example. It looks even better if it is matched with a pair of clean, white shoes i.e. BATA school shoes. I ain't kid you. Ad and I had purchased one pair each. You know those shoes we hated it so much back in high school? Yeah.

2) We like to accessorize. Yeah, like our female counterparts, we, men, CAN accessorize. Thanks to whomever that coined the term "Metrosexual" or "Ubersexual". I kinda think it is a marketing thingy for fashion people to make more money. But I am really not complaining. Accessories for men are fun. No dangling earrings or piercing nose, yet. Hmm, but I'd like a pierced cook. Hot, what :)

3) We pay attention to good looking people or, should I say, good looking AND fashionable ppl . They will automatically divert our attention to whatever we are doing. Girls and guys alike. Even aunties or uncles. Well, not so of the latter but aunties. Since we started this bag biz, we love people watching.

4) We love watching "What Women Want" every Thursday on 8tv because: a) All the men in the show are pathetic! They tried too damn hard to be nice. "Oh, I will volunteer to be the bottom two today cos I did everything a team mate can possibly do. Bla bla bla."

Some speak badly even if they're a Phd student - you knw who I am referring to. While others behaved like small kids! Are these men really WHAT WOMEN WANT? If you asked me, I think women these days don't want a good looking dude, surfer dude, Shakespearian dude, or dude sings and dances to win a woman's heart (cue: last nite's episode. Vomit-inducing). Women these days want men with deep pocket. That's what women want.

Yes, I've said it. I think women will stop reading this blog from now on *grin* But, seriously, Hannah T. Do you really wanna date a Fine Arts degree holder dude who stays with mommy and working in an art gallery as a Curator or a Banker who drives the latest Beemer, and drinks champagne for lunch?

In all fairness, there are still some women who dig romantic guy or a surfer dude. And, the show is a very good locally produced reality show. Thursday will never be the same again. Pre-American Idol, of course.

5) I love going to Sg Wang. A couple of years back, I would keel over if you caught me admitting to this but now, I dont give a hoot cos Sg Wang is funky, fun and happening. So much to shop compared to Sunway Pyramid or One Utama even. Really, how many MNG, Topshops, Vinci, and Padini stores do we all need in the Klang Valley? I know I like new breed of brands. Oh, allow me to share this with y'all the other day I was there.

After dinner, we got to the 6th floor and the first shop that we walked in, I asked the Sales Assistant what time do all the shops close here in Cantonese (she looks quite Lien so I thought that'd make it easier for us).

SA: Oh! I am solli. I no Chinese. I Korean.
Me: Oh, I'm sorry. So what time do all the shops close here?
SA: 9pm. So, it's time to leave now.

I looked at my watch and it was a quarter to 9. Maybe, she's right until I checked with the another store and the sales person said usually by 9.30pm, most stores will start to close. Ms Kim Chi Bong was trying shoo me out of the mall so she can go back and eat her Kim Chi noodles. Hmmph.

6) We both think Jade from ANTM cycle 6 is cool. Seriously. She can be the bitch of all the bitches and the drama queens of all the drama queens, she rocks it. I will certainly hire her if I've got a fashion house and make her the next big thing. People love controversies. You people, admit it!
