I’m going to go out of my way for once to lend my support and promote this petite and pretty person with a penchant and passion to turn people (even those resembling Pilsbury or Playdoh) into pretzels with panache. I’m talking about Ninie – The Yoga Instructor. She’s made it as one of the finalists in the Nescafe Kickstart reality TV show (airs every Saturday at 7:00pm over TV3). HatiYoga, Malaysia’s first yoga magazine, is her brainchild in which her wish to reach out and share the beauty and benefits of yoga to Malaysians is realized. For RM10 year-quarterly, you also get an instructional VCD to guide you with those breathing and body-bending yoga moves. Real value for money!
Promotions aside, I personally feel that Ninie has a lot going on for her in pursuit of her passion and to realize that magazine of hers. It definitely showed during the HatiYoga’s launch this morning. For that, I have nothing but utmost repect for her (perhaps the ability to greet “Sawadeeka” from behind has something to do with it as well). And despite yoga being non-violent by nature, I hope she will kick major asses in Kickstart!
Papa Jahat does the Sexyback on the London Bridge by The Fabulous Catz featuring Fergie and Justin Timberlake. It’s the fastest produced remix/mashup I’ve ever done. You may laugh, cry, laugh crying or cry laughing after listening.
In less than two months, we’ve been ushering no less than three
new years. Today, we celebrate the Chinese New Year. While it may
be the year of the boar, I hope the coming year will be anything
but a bore or chore. May you have a prosperous new year, don’t
let the wallet get too porous, stay gorgeous and lay off
Meniti usia kita
Dalam kederasan dunia
Adakah dapat ku penuhi
Tanggungjawab yang diberikan
Mampukah ku bawa?
Coming soon to you on the Sumo-lah
let me in on the near final version of the song when I popped by
the studio last week. I thought the strings and rocking guitar
climactic ending is nothing short of eargasmic. So I asked him
for another listen. He obliged. He’s cool like that. Mamasan thinks so
of him too.
It’s been some while since I got one of those little piece of shiny plastic discs that brought me joy when I put it to spin in one of those audio playback devices. So you can imagine the excitement when I got one that not only brought me joy listening to it, but also a personally signed copy of it from the Malaysian girl who’s making it big in The Big Apple, i.e. Shayna Zaid herself!
You can’t tell from the pictures, but I wet my pants when I received the CD via JFK who just returned from his 7 week adventure in the US of A.Here’s looking forward to meeting her when she’s in town this March!
The weekend was a long one for me so I made use of it to clear
up the clutter in my room at the parental unit’s abode. Little
did I know this early spring cleaning exercise will help me
create and achieve resolutions of sorts at the same time. For
one, the desk is finally usable again after having rid of
statements and bills that have passed their retention period.
With that load of junk out of the way, it finally happened.
For the first time in my life, I actually managed to balance
my checkbook. Being someone who struggled with accounting
concepts in college and loathed all things financial (despite
my majoring in management), it was like unlocking one of the
great mysteries of the universe. It was a big deal for me. Then
one thing led to another, I ended up with a very realistic and
doable budget for the year that won’t make me break into a
sweating spree from having to pay Uncle Samy’s chetty houses,
the never decreasing petrol prices,
the beloved Income Revenue Board
and still be able to enjoy some indulgences from time to time
along the way. In other words, it all makes perfect sen-se
now (cue rimshot). So, with that resolution out of the way,
what else do I need to do now to establish that long term
relationship with a member of the opposite sex?
Admittedly, this weblog has fallen behind a bit as far as updates
are concerned. To the 2-3 million of you out
there who still haven’t left the building wondering what this
bloke has been up to, let me tell you that the last couple of
weeks hasn’t really been a picnic. Being physically and mentally
stretched day in and out really left nothing much for me at the
end of each day to indulge in anything else. On the flip side
however, it did help me sleep a little longer than I usually do
everyday. Still, I’d rather have my couple of hours each day to
indulge in insane things that keep me sane. When you’re on that
last stretch of the seemingly perpetual mile, things like that do
help make things pass easier. That as well as plenty of fiber and
fluids in your diet.
