Keeping the Merdeka Spirit Alive

This Sunday is.................................................

MERDEKA DAY!!




but this coming Monday is...................................

HOLIDAY!!!

Its just so good to be in Malaysia where if holidays falls on weekends, we are given another day off as a replacement.

Where in the world practice such things!!

Now, whenever merdeka is around the corner, I'd always love to see how people show their Malaysian Spirit.




umm sorry wrong picture...




Sadly, this year around, our 51st Merdeka Day has not been shown alot of attention. (Maybe this could be due to over-spending in our 50th Merdeka Day)



Ok lets face it!! When I say attention, I don't mean the usual boring parade.



I meant the MALAYSIAN WAY OF SHOWING OUR MERDEKA SPIRIT!!

Like umm....

Turning your whole car into a Malaysian Flag.



Make the longest flag with bottles.



Make a Malaysian Flag out of Lego's.



Try to outbeat in making the Malaysia's longest flag that stretches a mile longer by using everyone's "Bergotong-royong" hand spirit.





or wearing a Malaysian Flag Shirt and smashing a "Kompang" at least!!



So, yesterday, without the presence of anyone displaying a Malaysian flag on their car at the very least,



I saw what could at least show that there are still people out there who still does give a damn about Merdeka Day.

Driving past Pulau Tikus, I saw this.....




HAVE YOU SEEN HIM!!HAVE YOU SEEN HIM!!



THE ONE ON THE BICYCLE WITH MALAYSIAN FLAG USED AS A ROOF RIDING AROUND THERE WITH PRIDE!!




Okay, I know there are a whole lot of ways to show your Merdeka Spirit but using the Malaysian Flag to shade yourself from the sun and rain is not actually the nicest way to show respect to a flag but still....

At least its still great to know someone is keeping the Merdeka Spirit Alive the MALAYSIAN WAY!!

HAPPY 51st MERDEKA EVERYONE!!

My Samsung Bluetooth MP3 Player YP-S5

I could always remember when my car had no radio after it got STOLEN.


I did not have the money to replace it (thank you thief, I doubt you read blogs!!) and my ex-girlfriend whom I dated back then had to suffer and travel with me around in a very silent car.



We even came to a stage when my ex-girlfriend would plug in one ear piece into my left ear and another into her ear and play music from her handphone(did not have mp3 phone back then) in the car while i'm driving. It was definitely music sharing those days...



OBVIOUSLY!!We didn't last long...


If there was any truth to telling a girl that she deserves someone better like in this picture,




This whole can't afford a radio and going on dates without radio definitely shows it clearly.

I was a broken man.

And I became single for the longest time of my life which might change after last weekend.

Last weekend, I won a Samsung Bluetooth MP3 PLayer YP-S5 over blogging.




Samsung thought that my Wormy Blog post was their favourite among all the other blogs out there but seriously, I felt that my post was really badly written and among all, I really got lost in what I was trying to say. But I got to thank you guys for giving me something that normally guys like me would work our asses off to pay for the things we want in life.




Now I would love to go in details about this new gadget that I kind of like got it for free but I think you could just go and visit this website aeh..Nothing really great except that its got speakers


and umm bluetooth capability which you can transfer files, or pick up phone calls and stuff like that.



So umm after reading all that, I've got umm an MP3 Player now and still using the same car.

Ok I know i did not win a car through blogging but still...



What you say...Would you like to go out for a date with me?Music Sharing ok?

Samsung Bluetooth MP3 Player YP-S5 you know!!!

Nuffnang Gift Ideas Contest

Now blogging this past few days has been so much fun. There is just so many prizes up for grabs and gosh I think i've never been any more hardworking than any time throughout the year in updating my blog.

So, here's for this contest.

Its been a long time ever since I joined the Real Rewards membership which I joined through its Realmart website,


i've been swapping my card at just about every place that accepts for the collection of Real Rewards (RR) points. With most times at Petronas Petrol Stations. That's the reason why I frequently go to Petronas and not any other station.



I've been collecting so many points that the only thing I cannot remember is redeeming anything from them.

Not even ONE gift!

Not even a small leather bag from RealMART to keep my precious realrewards card!


NOTHING!!

That's because until today I have not collected enough points for the things that I want most which would take me about 50 years to collect enough RR points which by then,



I wouldn't have lived long enough to redeem anything from it leaving my RR points in my account in the system for all eternity never to be redeemed again!

Now, coming back to this contest, I noticed after reading 203 blogs who joined this contest,

that's right guys!203 NUFFNANGER BLOGGERS!!

203 Nuffnangers who all have one thing in common. Do you want to know what that is???

NOBODY GOD DAMN GAVE ME A PRESENT!!NOT EVEN ONE BLOGGER!! That truely show's how popular i am..sad case...

If that was bad enough, even my dear friend of 24 years of friendship did not even bother to give me a present through this simple giveaway contest!! With one present to giveaway now, who could I possibly give it to??

Now if you have continued reading from the start, giving a present away and choosing someone is a very difficult decision for me. Especially for someone who is up to saving enough Real Rewards Points for 50 years to redeem it for himself the things he loved most.

But I have thought about it clearly over the weeks and with only 2 more hours to the deadline for this contest, I have made up my mind to whom I should give my gift.

If there was anything, it cannot go wrong after knowing a person for such a very long time.

He is none other than Timothy Tiah.



Now that we've grown so big with you already being a fast and successful businessmen ahead of all our time, I think its about time we took our friendship to the next level.

I'm giving you this!A CEO Toy that I found in Realmart website.



Its time we play Tic Tac Toe the Men's way. The Royal Selangor Pewter Way. I could always remember the days gwhen we played it on paper but I guess we've passed that.



I hope I have made the right choice. Why do I still feel one sided in this trade-off. Why is this poor person giving the boss something so expensive? Shouldn't it be the other way around??

DAMMIT!!Where's my gift??I WANT IT NOW!!!

My Experience in the World Cyber Games

Just awhile ago, I was shocked to find that my blog (that has remained unknown for the longest time I could ever remember) has just received a huge phenomenal hike in visits.

Its so incredibly huge that if celebrity bloggers like Ringo



and Cindy



were not able to attend the Nuffnang Sharing session at Italiannies this coming Sunday,




they knew they could count on me to share my recent blogging "experience" of celebrity-like. That is if good looks, boobs, and hot legs were not part of the requirement.

If there was any benefit of inviting me as Guest Blogger, I could share with you my experience at a Mamak Stall over some Roti rather than over Cabonara



which could ruin your night out with Ringo and Cindy if not eaten properly.

I mean "ewwww". You know how difficult sometimes it can get to eat infront of hot girls and talk at the same time what more with the uncertainty of forking out the spaghetti noodles out from the plate the right way hoping that they would not notice how "Chinapek" you really are..I think you get what I mean.

While all that's not ever going to happen, looks like i'm going to share with you my recent experience last Saturday on my blog while i'm experiencing this unusual rain of visits. At least don't go until you read this post. I BEG YOU!!I BEG YOU!!

Last Saturday, while our National Hero Lee Chong Wei was on his last step to winning Malaysia's first badminton Gold Medal in Olympics 2008 in China,


Back in Kuala Lumpur Mid-Valley Megamall Exhibition Center, there was a whole different game going on.



It was the World Cyber Games 2008.

(Picture from Timothy)

The Olympics of computer games that is filled with world class gamers coming from all over the world whom at least experienced lots of scolding and attempts of disownment by their parents if not disowned as well.

I was there to see and experience what was happening at the World Cyber Games and of course to also see whether I could fit a 32" LVD TV from Samsung on my empty table at the end of the day.

If there was any real good reason why I should experience all the things I did in my previous post before I left for Mid-Valley, I wanted to make sure that I got the 32" TV for my mother to let her know that all those years of sitting infront of the computer did not go to waste. For all those years that I was playing Worms and CS that has destroyed part of my life, at least I hope I would be able to show her that those years of playing games was not for nothing.


But I guess since games is out for me(retired), thanks to Samsung and Nuffnang, I've got to blog my way for it.

I hope this saddening but pretty true story would help me win this 32" LCD. I can't help but think that nobody out there needs it more than I do.

So, coming back to the World Cyber Games, I was there to see through to the finals of a mini-CS competition held at one of the Samsung Booth



where 8 Nuffnang blogger teams (Nuffnang team included) with a requirement of at least ONE female player in each team will compete with each other.

The finals was between the Nuffnang Team (Wahh not bad aeh, must have practiced it at work!!), and Ben Chan team.

I don't know about you, but I thought that the odds of winning was far greater at the Nuffnang Team side with 9 wins and 1 more to go. Thinking it was more exiciting to watch the winning side to see how they whipped the asses of their opponent, I saw otherwise.

They lost to a score of 10-0, and 10-1. If you tell me the opponent did not study Counter-Strike back in high school, please CORRECT ME NOW!!

Now there were other things going on there besides the mini-CS Competition.

The World Cyber Games competition was being held here.



This is where the BIG BOYS play!!BOYS who are serious in showing their parents that playing games all their lives was not for NOTHING!!Nuff said...I mean hey...WORLD COMPETITION YOU KNOW!!!

If there was anything, these are the guys who bring their own keyboard, mouse, and earphones.

So, leaving them aside, let me show you what else was happening there.

Here's something impressive. There was a PC on display running 6 19" Samsung Screens smoothly altogether.


Its so powerful here let me show you this...


ITS SO POWERFUL NOBODY CAN POSSIBLY TELL YOU THE PRICE!!

Then there was also F1 racing competition through a computer game for those who lets face it, there are not many things we can experience in this one lifetime.



There was also a Guitar Competition for people who umm...can't play the REAL guitar in real life.



And when you thought the rest of us who were not doing anything like playing games were bored, you were wrong.

we were entertained with music by a band that were almost as good as Avril Lavigne.


She was really good!



As the clock strikes 4pm, it was time for the prize-giving ceremony for the best blog entries of "My Favourite Computer Game of All-Time".

I won for Samsung's favourite post which gives me a Blueteeth MP3 Player YP-S5. Blogger Soo Chooi Leang won most creative entry that gives him a Samsung Camera.

and when it came to Timothy Tiah, who won not just Funny, but most FUNNIEST ENTRY which gives him the 32" LCD TV FROM SAMSUNG.

HE GAVE IT AWAY!!

The emcee was like saying: -
"WHY!! THE 32" LCD TV YOU DON'T WANT TO TAKE AH!! TOO SMALL FOR YOU IZZIT??"

Let me show you how big 32" LCD TV is.



Anyway, the 32" LCD TV is now up for grabs again and gosh, maybe you know, Its FATE really. The TV really wants to be with the person who needs it!!You know who right??RIGHT??

Staring at the TV for awhile, I can tell, he would have loved to have that TV. Must have sucked being Timothy for a day!


Well after Tea, Timothy decided that those who'd like the TV should post pictures of themselves together with Samsung Girls and blog about it. The best entry would win of course.

What do you think we did??

Soon, the Samsung Girls with Blue Hair



were as popular as the Spice Girls.



Everyone went back to the exhibition center and was taking pictures with them like crazy.


I tried a James Bond post though. What a failure!



All I can say is, HOW COULD WE HAVE POSSIBLY NEGLECTED THE SAMSUNG GIRLS ALL THIS WHILE FOR GAMES!!!

oh right...its not just any game, Its WORLD CYBER GAMES!!
