Miss Sarawak Leisure World 2009 Talent Night

Last Wednesday night I attended my first beauty pageant event. I joined together with Rose and JF to cover the event. Frankie, Pazuzu and KY were at Anna's advance birthday dinner so they came late. Sorry Anna I couldn't make it for your dinner :(

The setting at The Core was nothing to be impressed. Have a look at the video:


After a delay of one hour, the finalists were finally ready to show their talents!

However only 12 of the 15 finalists showed up; I heard three of the finalists (#7 Natalia Ngui, #13 Pamela Phang and #15 Juliana Tan) were either on work commitments or were disqualified.

And just in case you need a clearer view:-

So the models introduced themselves:

On with the first performance then. Finalist #1 Chang Hui Chung performed an Indian dance. An interesting comment I've received was of her attire: "She's on her pajamas!"

A change of stage setup and we have finalist #2 Chiong Yin Yin playing a piano piece. The mood of the crowd changed to the sounds of the piano.

Finalist #3 Cherrie Yin played the piano as well. The people beside my table however had some suggestions for her....

So out was the piano and in was a seat and a microphone for finalist #4 Christine Chong to sing a Malay song for the crowd.

Next was finalist #5 Amy Goh showing off her dance moves that got the crowd going again.

Finalist #6 Zoe Lee provided a talent that was different from the rest by playing a guitar while singing two English songs in one play. Unfortunately, the microphone did no favours for her...

Finalist #8 Aliceson Renis did a Middle Eastern dance. She' s the, most mature finalist at the age of 25. She was also the one I commented as 'having similar looks with Maya Karin'...but that was based on the preview photo la. Real life ah? Er...different...

Next was finalist #9 Criselda Ong singing that Britney Spear song "Lucky". Personally, I like her :)

Back to dancing and boy, did finalist #10 Carron Kho mezmerized the crowd with her modern (and kinky) dance!

Finalist #11 Angela Agatha Jerome did a dance as well...but a very naughty one! The men went crazy and I am one of the guilty ones!

Finalist #12 Julies Lucas sang a Malay song and perfomed some 'dangdut' dance. Crowd wasn't that interested to be honest.

Last but not least, finalist #14 Amy Iszaida doing a dance. Her body language screamed of lacking confidence though.

While waiting for the results, Frankie, JF, KY, Pazuzu and I went backstage for a photo session with the ladies. A lot of photos were taken I can assure you!

The men were too shy to smile....

After some time waiting, the judges made their verdict. Who do you think would win? I bet finalist #11 Angela would win it for her kinky dance.

And the winner of the Miss Sarawak Leisure World 2009 Talent Night is....

CONGRATULATIONS CARRON KHO! Don't she wish her prize was a little bit better than her hamper prize

Up next: The Miss Sarawak Leisure World 2009 Final. Swim wear involved. Nuff said!

Tiger FC's Chick Magnet and the Big Away Game in Kuching

Meet Mr. A4 Paper:

Mr. A4 Paper was born as an experiment to see Kuching people's reaction to someone as cute as him.

Will the people of Kuching laugh at his presence (or rather, laugh at me carrying him) or will he be the star of the show?

I brought him to the Tiger FC Big Away Game at DUBS Commercial Centre last Saturday night to find out. Joining me together was Alvin, with Allen, Frankie, his friend and my brother all coming later during the match.

There was curiosity, and then there was love! The Tiger FC girls at the entrance adored his sweet smile; the professional photographers even took photos of him! He, my friends, became an instant star :)

Until the emcees came to announce the start of the event.

Mr. A4 Paper's 15 minutes of fame ended with the opening of the first match, Portsmouth VS Everton (eh, I thought the newsletter said it was to be Blackburn VS West Ham?)

OK, let's put aside Mr. A4 Paper first.The Tiger FC event in Kuching was just like what I predicted; not as happening as the one in KL. In fact, it had a different feel to it. It felt more like an outdoor pub rather than a 'stadium-feel' Tiger FC was after. The two emcees for the night were unheard of (no Serena C!)...and even worst they got an emcee to speak to the crowd in Chinese! So potong stim la....

I saw more old folks around my table attempting to get drunk rather than to bet any money on any of the BPL matches. But at RM25 per bucket we fully understood why the old geezers were on the drinking spree. That's RM6.25 per bottle of Tiger! Cheap!!! Oh, and the beer taste even better with a hot friend around; who would have thought I would end up drinking with a KL friend I haven't met since I left college five years ago???

Anyway, for every bucket of Tiger beer you get a chance to predict the scoreline and win a Nintendo Wii if you get it right! My friend and I predicted 0-2 win for Everton. Instead thanks to Peter Crouch it was a Portsmouth win 2-1! Argh damn you Crouch! :( Nobody was really paying attention to this game by the way, and only one true Portsmouth supporter was spotted.

Mr.A4 Paper was drunk already.

I did said I wanna win a Tiger FC jersey this time. So with many thanks to lady luck (and some direct suggestion to one of the emcees), the emcees approached our table after the match with this question:

"Name me four teams that have won the Premiership"

"Manchester United, Chelsea, Arsenal and Blackburn." (Where are you Liverpool??? HA!)

Ah, at last...

...I've finally had to show some skin to wear the Tiger FC jersey!

And boy, it was worth it!

After attending three Tiger FC events, I'm really happy to be wearing the jersey. Thank you Tiger!

Now endorsing Tiger as of 21 March 2009

The second game was what Mr.A4 Paper came for; Tottenham VS Chelsea. Excluding Mr. A4 Paper only one real supporter of Tottenham was spotted as well. Rumours had it that the main prize will be a PlayStation 3 so we brought two buckets; 0-1 and 0-2 win for Chelsea (sorry Spurs fans, we were being realistic in order to win the PS3!).

It was however a boring first half performance so we boys do our thing and we flirt,er, had a fun conversation with this Tiger FC girl:

The curious ones may ask Mr. Frankie about her.

Even Mr. A4 Paper was bored, so he became a pimp with six ladies!

I was not one to miss such an opportunity to pose with the ladies :)

The same goes for Frankie too. He and his 'Angels'.

At half time with the scoreline 0-0 I went to meet my colleagues at Fire, Travilion for a quick clubbing session. I came back 15 mins after 2nd half started...with a heartache. The cause:

1) Tottenham scored. NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!! My PS3!!!!!!!!!!

2) Manchested United lost again. NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!

#2 was a lot more painful. So naturally, we turned from meekfully supporting Chelsea to passionately supporting Mr.A4 Paper and Tottenham!

My brother did this when Luka Modric scored:

And when the full time result was 1-0 to Tottenham, I can't help but to follow suit:

To my amusement (and luckily enough), the winner DID NOT WIN A PS3 but instead a signed Ronaldinho jersey...when has still at Barcelona!

Wah lao, sell that la! 11 girls and two men will agree to that!

After four bottles of Tiger beer, and two other beers at Fire, I was tipsy. And that's good cause I went home with a smile as beautiful as Mr. A4 paper :)

So while the crowd's kind of crap for a football event like Tiger FC Big Away Game, the fact that I had a great time drinking with my buddies, enjoying the sight of the Tiger FC babes and seeing Chelsea lose (although it didn't really made me forget about Man Utd's loss) made this night one of the more memorable nights I had this year.

Oh, remember the professional photographers taking photos of Mr. A4 Paper? One of them's from Sin Chew Daily and he prolly made Mr. A4 Paper slightly famous in Kuching!

Many thanks to Allen and Frankie for the photos. Oh and Frankie again for discovering the appearance of Mr. A4 Paper at Sin Chew Daily last Monday :)

Miss Sarawak Leisure World Talent Night 2009 (Preview)

While I'm preparing the write-up for last Saturday's Tiger FC event, let me show you an image preview of the 2009 Miss Sarawak Leisure World Talent Night:

Click image to enlarge;I know you want to....

If my imagination would come to reality, I could expect a very naughty night; lots of kinky talk, skin showing and poll dancing! Maybe that's what the organisers considered "talent" since these finalists are showing their ability at a freaking night club.

Hopefully they are showing some real talent like singing or playing with some musical instrument; even better if they have some unique talent (name any superpowers from Heroes).

I was told that the actual final will be at Four Points Sheraton this Saturday night so I'll see if I could attend that as well.

As for the finalists themselves...if the winner was chosen based on looks alone, I reckon Aliceson (Finalist #8) would win it. She has that fact, I think she looks similar to Maya Karin. If it isn't Aliceson my 2nd option would be Pamela Phang (Finalist #13) as I think she looks best from all the rest.

Then again, I may be pressured to support Angela (#11) as I know her a bit....

I dunno about you but I find #4 to be scary.

I find something funny though; if the sponsor is Tiger then how come I'm getting a bottle of HEINEKEN for buying the ticket??

20As!? Respect!

All my respect to Cik Nik Nur Madihah, who scored 20As for her SPM.

Back in my school days (cheh wah, like I'm so old like that), hitting 13 or 15As was unheard of, what more 20As! Don't even mention getting 11As to my class, 'cause my classmates were only interested to pass our minimum seven subjects. Some are even interested to fail all but Malay Language/Bahasa Melayu (or is that now called Bahasa Malaysia again?), which if we fail that we gotta go through a year's worth of school again...that's a big no-no.

Coming back to Cik the heck did she do it?? She must be either gifted in remembering 20 different textbooks...or she had no life at all reading and understanding the subjects at her study room each day after school. Not a bad thing though given her parents are poor; now she would most likely be in Oxford University or any of those prestigious universities so few of us had such privilege to go to.

Then again, how come there's like 20 subjects now?? She also took Mandarin and Tamil exam kah? She can draw like Leonardo da Vinci for Arts/Pendidikan Seni? She's so damn good she can write a freaking Windows program, making her SPM IT subjects seem like child's play?? Fuck, she can do Add Maths without the need of a calculator???

Ok, I'm exaggerating but seriously I can't think of 20 subjects. My college/university exams were average of four per semester?

And me? I'm proud of my SPM result: 1A 2B and 4C!

So I wish her all the best for whatever she plans to be (Bet: Doctor 7/5, Lawyer 7/4, Engineer 12/1, Others 5,000/1)

Last thing I wanna read from the papers though is Cik Nik turning to another Sufiah Yusof:

Tiger FC is finally coming to Kuching!

One of the events that I truly missed while I was working in KL was the Tiger FC Big Away Game (BAG). Tiger FC BAG is an event to enjoy watching BPL football with the real atmosphere; lots of loud football fans, a big screen and great sound system, fun emcees (Mix FM's Serena C and Fly FM's Phat Babes in particular), and even a chance to win simple prizes such as caps and key chains to their limited Tiger FC jersey (which I really, really want!), a PS3 and if you're really lucky a trip to the UK!

Oh, not to forget the hot models and ushers that work for Tiger FC! :) Of course if the models aren't up to your expectations you could always enjoy the mandatory Tiger beer....I mean the beers would really help you alot like this example:

So when I received an email of Tiger FC's newsletter, I was very excited when I read they are coming to Kuching for the first time this month!

Here's the information on the Tiger FC BAG in Kuching:

As much as I would like to believe that the event would be as happening as the ones in KL, this event will be in Kuching...and let's be honest Kuching isn't like KL. I wouldn't know for sure how this Tiger FC BAG in Kuching would turn out but I would keep my expectations low.
Which is a good thing 'cause if there's no crowd then I'm certain to win that PS3 right?? :)

And to see pretty ladies at the Tiger FC BAG in Kuching? Hmmm...

And why are they NOT showing a BPL match between Fulham and Manchester United!? ASTRO not showing gah!?? Cannot be leh!

Instead I guess I'll wear a Tottenham jersey and pray Luka Modric scored the winner against Chelsea. Heh.

Anyway, I'll be going for the event; I wanna win something there that's for sure. Any football fanatics/alcoholics in Kuching wanna join me?

And now, for something different:

Have a look at the video after the first 40 seconds. Love the lads!

10 Types of Bosses You Need to Avoid

I love this article written by Amused & Bemused, a feature blogger:

My boss has been really been bugging me lately. I think I spend more of my day thinking about how to avoid him than I spend working on the stuff he needs from me.

So, for this week's article, I had the bright idea of giving you some sage advice on the types of bosses you need to avoid. The chances of someone getting a great boss are about as slim as my man-boobs suddenly changing into rippling pecs, so I thought this idea would be helpful to many.

I don't know about you, but when I think about bosses, it makes me think of asses, and when I think of asses, I think of ___holes, and without fail, when I think of ___holes, I think of toilets. How about you?

So here's my advice on the 10 Types of Bosses You Should Avoid, as demonstrated with the help of toilets:

10. Avoid the Boss That Has No Personal Life

Toilet Office

This boss suffers from "everyone should suffer like me" syndrome.

There are bosses out there that have little in their lives besides work and don't respect the fact that others do. To avoid facing the empty and joyless lives they have, they typically glorify work as if it's the only thing worth doing.

These bosses will not hesitate to ask you to work on Poker Night or cancel your family vacation to Vegas. You can tell you have one of these bosses if you see them running to the crapper, bringing along a memo to read, so they don't miss a second of work time.If you have one of these work all the time types, go find a new boss or watch your life dry up like dog poop in the sun.

9. Avoid the Boss That Wants to Piss All Over You

Between A Woman's Legs Toilet

This boss suffers from "if I am nasty, no one will notice I am stupid" syndrome.

There are bosses out there who don't know how to say "thank you" or "great job". Silent when you perform and deliver well, they are the first to publicly berate you with a warm stream of criticism for the slightest goof or mistake. Fearful of being discovered for the failures that they are, they will leap at the chance to make others look bad. Showers of abuse are what they provide.

If you have one of these full of piss bosses, leave them or your self-respect will become smaller than the nuts of a man who just joined with the ice swimming Polar Bears club.

8. Avoid the Boss That Constantly Clowns Around

Clown Toilet

This boss suffers from "I am a laughing fool" syndrome.

When you first meet this type of boss, you'll think they're great. You love the idea of having a fun boss to work with at first. Only when you've been with them a while do you realize that they are having too much fun to do any work. They are the ones spending all their work hours looking for a new gag to play or titillating gossip to spread around. Since they have little time to actually do their jobs, you will end up staying late every night to finish up their work.

If you have a joker for a boss, you need to run far away from that circus.

7. Avoid the Boss That Struggles to Stay Afloat

Fish-N-Flush Toilet

This boss suffers from "I am drowning in my own incompetence" syndrome.

Some managers are merely around to prove that the Peter Principle (that you get promoted until you get a job you can't do well and get stuck there) is alive and well in corporate America. Clueless as to how to do their job and afraid to admit it, they are always looking for someone to save them.

Watch out as these bosses will surely cover up their incompetence by taking credit for your work and quickly toss you over to explain away their missed deadlines and bad decisions.

If you have one these bosses, don't keep throwing them a life raft. Just let them flail around until they run out of energy and let them drown.

6. Avoid the Boss That Constantly Blows His Own Horn

Musical Instrument Toilet

This boss suffers from "if I say I am great enough times, it'll be true" syndrome.

These bosses believe that if no one is saying anything nice about them, they should fill the void by creating loud fanfare about themselves.

They are usually the ones who will tell you that the company can't survive without them. Needing constant polishing and buffing, they surround themselves with people who will support their delusions of grandeur. You can tell you have one of these bosses, if it feels like you are expected to start a parade every time they successfully go to the bathroom.

If you have one of these bosses, tell them that you will no longer be part of the show and a member of their failing band.

5. Avoid the Boss That Is Always Competing With You

Video Game Toilet

This boss suffers from "I need to prove I am not the weakest link" syndrome.

Have you ever had a boss that makes everything a competition?

These are the jerks that can't just be happy with the fact that they rule over your workday. They need to get the daily ego boost of winning, even it's just proving they can eat a sandwich faster than you.

Had a nice weekend, he had a better one. Bought yourself a flat-screen tv, his is bigger. Leased a new BMW? Hers is a Porsche. These are the bosses who can't go to the bathroom without covertly peeking over to your urinal to see if you would win the "whose the biggest in the locker room" test.

If you have one these bosses, drop out as a contestant in their biggest loser marathon.

4. Avoid the Boss That's All Talk

Kiss Toilet

This boss suffers from "diarrhea of the mouth" syndrome, constantly spewing dribble until nothing is left.

These are the bosses that walk around telling everyone their pathetically unfunny story or joke of the day. They are the ones that need to take over every meeting, forcing everyone to swallow their bull. For these bosses, sucking up time is what they do best. These big mouths also tend to be backstabbing hypocrites, telling you how great you areto your face as they snicker over your latest goof with everyone else in the office.

If you have one these bosses, tell them to shut their big gaping trap and tell their story to someone else.

3. Avoid the Boss That's Always on the Go

Toilet Bike

This boss suffers from "if I pretend to be busy, you'll find someone else" syndrome.

There are bosses that are zipping around, never in one place long enough to actually do any work. These bosses often travel a lot and complain about it but find every opportunity to get out of the office. With the frenzy that surrounds them and their packed appointment book, there is no time to spare for a lowly slug like you. They are very good at delegating tasks and you are unsure as to whether they can do anything else but shove more work on you as they leave the office for one more trip.

If you have one these bosses, use them for inspiration and zip yourself go somewhere else.

2. Avoid the Boss That's Obsessed with Sex

Rear End Toilets

This boss suffers from "I never get any at home so all I can do is talk ABOUT IT" syndrome.

Every workplace seems to have the office letch. The pig that has to leer and make a sexual comments every time someone attractive walks by. They are the first to note that a "sweater" is nice, as they stare at your breasts or tell you they are waiting for a big "package" to be delivered, as they lick their lips and look at your crotch.

It's bad enough to have to deal with them at work but it's unbearable when they are your boss. Trying to look up your skirt when you're crossing your legs if you're hot (or making you feel like a cow chip if you are not), they can be relied upon to offer blush-worthy commentary on everything. You can tell you have one of these bosses if everything they say is filled with sexual innuendo and they even talk about the toilet as some sexual conquest.

If you have let's talk dirty boss, you should get another. It will only be a matter of time before you participate in the lewd talk to fit in, only to find charges of sexual harassment brought against you. Your boss will be too important to fire but you won't be.

1. Avoid the Boss That Will Eat You Alive

Jaws Toilet

This boss suffers from "I was a nerd in high school but now I can be a bully" syndrome.

There are those bosses that are simply terrors to work with. Impatient, nasty and mean, they dismiss all of your contributions and belittle you at every turn.

These bosses are great yellers, and when you think of them, all you can think of is a big snarling mouth. This type of boss won't hesitate to throw a tantrum, scream profanities as they smash things around the office and hurl books and pencils at you.

If you have a man-eating boss, you need to break free from their nasty grasp. Life is too short to work for someone that's not even worthy of licking your toilet flush them away like the turds they are.

Well, you have now been through the 10 Types of Bosses You Need to Avoid. I am sure I have only touched the dirty surface of the bosses we've all had to work with.

So what are the ones I missed? Do you have a horror story to share about your lousy boss so that it makes my boss seem like a saint in comparison?

A message from the instructor

I saw this message yesterday while I was on the road. The message was:




Kesian, this instructor's students all kena bullied by us Sarawakian drivers!
