OH how i BEG to defer! u realize....that people and their personalities or their occupations or their schools or just simply their lifely hood, can be reflected on the face? no? yes! see guys from ACS have this super ACS face. or people who are shy and softspoken have that very plain face? no? but this one is for sure. have u gone to the market and stuff and seen the butchers? they always have this similar face like...u can put thier job and face together. OBSERVE CHILDREN:

see what i mean! he's a butcher btw
Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting if u want to have a model face or a superstar's face, you've gotta live like a model or a superstar. difficult huh? well better example if you want to look like me then.....oh wait you need to be blessed by God for that so...hahaha!

kidding(like why must i say this? will it offend people? they think i'm arrogant? why can't everyone just...ease up a little cheeze)

hmm lets see what else i've been doing...hmm. oh yes at the supermart, i bought this Basket ball hoop thingy for kids and..haha...put it up in my room. its endless hours of fun for the price of $2.50 i tell you

shooting baby hoops is MY thing ;)
Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

chop!! yes thats frograracy accuracy!
Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting's another sad story. see this fish we shall so affectionally name...Mr fish, was swimming happily in his ocean sea. the waters free for him to roam and look for other female hottie fishes. he can do anything he wants! in the waters there are no laws! and reproduction is everything! haha...isn't that just the life? and everyone is NAKED! woo! but how happy he must have been that day....when Mr Fish was swimming around and he saw a shrimp! OH HAPPY DAY! i must get that shrimp! and he chases and he twists and turns and wiggles his way around until FINALLY he catches up with the little bugger. chewing it with his teeth,Mr fish swims away happily with his new catch! until suddenly......SWWOOPPP!! he got caught himself. thats the end of his marine playboy life.

Look at the shocked expression on his face. if i were him, i would curse my luck as well
Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

poor Mr fish. (characters named in this story have choosen these aliases and are kept anonymous for their own protection)

oh well...i might as well tell u his name..ALFRED FISH! yupp...i just breached our contract. haha! stupid MR .FISH! he's dead anyway so he won't know ;P

wo ho ho...long blog today k highlight of the day. the Singapore annual bear staring competition has come again! some of you might be asking...HUH?!?! what bear...what? staring? wth? okay okay let me shed some light. its an annual competition where bears from all over the region come to singapore to compete in their staring skills! its a tiring and gruelling competition i tell you. and this year i've been invited as special guest participant...NORMAN THEN! woo! claps(for himself)

and that day i tell you...i realized that staring is not a simple game..OH NO NO NO! it involves so many factors. if you stare like this might put ur opponent to sleep, or yourself. if you stare like this 0_0 , you might risk looking like this forever, or just simply looking like an idiot. if you stare like this ^_^ one will take you seriously. haha!

so anyway i beat a few bears and ended up in the semi finals where i lost! *gasps*

yea,...he was a seasoned starer so i couldn't beat him . here is a shot of him and me staring!

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

oh and did i mention that bear went on to win? but the sad fact that he died the next day cuz....few ahbengs beat him up. they were like..."stare what stare?" then....BSSH BASH! POW! WHACK!then....... newspaper front page. what a terrible life to live.

oh well i'm pretty hungry now so i'll just leave you with this thought:
Do you agree that microwaves are the best invention in this century???

The worst thing about being not talked about

"the worst thing about not being talked not being talked about" - oscar wilde true. how true. wise words from one of the legends in story telling. i will not venture into telling you all how he got famous. Not because its a long story....nnonono.....its just .......i haven't much of a clue myself. HAHA!

anyway....story is that....he was a very famous story teller. Charming in his own way and women all over....wherever he was telling he's story from(america i think) fell in love with him. and oh well he just had something about him that was so, original.

novelty attracts.

speaking about novelty, i happened to watch tonights show(the one where mathilda got kicked out) and, i must say, i was bitterly dissapointed. not only to see one of the best singaporean singers get kicked out so early in the competition, but also to see some of the best performers(hady and jon who conincidentally are my good friends) to be in the btm 3. Sad .

its not a singing competition anymore i guess. some people(i DARE not mention the type if not i'll end up dead tmr morning), are spoiling the competition. its not any of the idols faults. their doing their best. but sometimes, people see themselves in whoever their voting for. so i guess ...there aren't many good singers in singapore cuz....ppl just see their bad singing in their idols and vote for them.

go ahead and slam me. I DUN CARE. you know why? cuz i'm not targeting anyone here. BUT U KNOW WHO U ARE. thats right. i love all the idols. believe me. but i want to see a good show. so pls. vote properly.

i had fans....i think. and i'd like to think, that they supported me because, i sang well. thats the only reason. other reasons are secondary. i just want them to like my singing cuz, its a singing competition for god sakes! why would i want to join a competition and be remembered for something else? i wanna make it far in life. with my singing and musical career. i dun want to be famous. hell no, fame is boring. i too thought fame was nice. having people recgonize you was something COOL.

i was wrong. its boring. lonely sometimes. when i was in the competition. its's in your face 24/7. its hard to be yourself. its hard to be happy.becuz u can't do what u want to do. you say what you want to say.

at the end of the day. it sucks.

so if any of you reading this, that is hoping to join SI next season or anything else in your life. for fame. don't. you'l regret it.

life is too short. only do what you want to do and what will be good for everyone else around you. Love yourself most importantly and...whatever religion you are, believe in your God, fully.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

hahaha...nonetheless...both my cousin and I had loads of fun. not to mention the shopping! hahah! there were many incidents to cherish but here's are a few HIGHLIGHTS of our trip :D

and what's a themepark without a proper Go KART! woo!
Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

but here was the most interesting part of the go kart...okay. there was a board which had all the rules and regulations of the go kart system and here was one of the rules
Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

APPERENTLY...there would be a warning or a signal given to anyone...with...NO PECKS! HHHUUUUHHH!!!!! we were confused by the sign?!?! None of us had pecks!(here's the definition for the word peckless

we were looking around and we were this the reason why these arabs are here? there were alot of arab women queueing up for the go kart and they had it tudongs? anyway theirs are much more elaborated than singaporean tudongs cuz theirs covered the mouths and the nose and everything! cept the eyes of cuz. though some of them still wore shades (go figure!). we were wondering...perhaps under that disguise...they had PECKS! thats why they were so willing to go karting!

finally we figured out the word was actually supposed to be RECKLESS. oh well fortunately i figured that out AFTER the race as i was driving at TOP SPEED(which wasn't really fast actually) and bumping into all my friends to get FIRST PLACE *claps*

haha and of cuz me and my cuz was making fun of that board the enitre trip! haha

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Shawn suggested me buying this shirt and wearing it to one of the shows........perhaps not shawn. hahaha
Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

all in all....malaysia can be summarized into a moment me and Shawn had. We visited this shop called 'Factory outlet Store' (in short FOS) and i thought it was funny cuz my friends would insult each other by calling names like POS(piece of s***) . Basically what it means is that if i call you that means you are a piece of human faeces. You can only imagine my reaction when not long after i told my cousin about POS, I saw this sign.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

it really shows how malaysians love thier country. HAHAHAHA

alas. it was time to head home. we were all really tired and just wanted to catch some sleep
Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
