My A-Z Review of 2007

A is for Angkasawan. Malaysian dude in space. Awe-freakin-some.
m.zulkifli
B is for Britney, without a doubt the queen of bad press in ’07. Give me less of that in ’08, OK?
m.zulkifli
C is for Cinta the movie. Raked it in at the box-office AND the awards. Malaysians are jiwang alright…

D is for Dogs. To be exact, DVD-sniffing dogs Flo and Lucky, who put a number of pirate kings out of business.

E is for Erra Fazira. But where do I even begin?

Sunday With Amir

So I made my way to Amcorp Mall today to check out Amir Muhammad's stall at the famous flea market, although I've already bought his book Malaysian Politicians Say The Darndest Things. If you haven't, buy lah. It's got clueless Malaysian politicians after all...


Also on sale were books by Amir's partner in crime, Shahril Nizam and "mysterious" DVDs. Also managed to speak to Amir on the possibility of him doing a regular column for GUA.COM.MY. Woohoo!

Dudes, I've Got A New Blog!

It's called MOJO DAILY (why the name? 'cos all the other ones I wanted aren't available lah). And this one totally suits my (self-proclaimed) lad-mag legend status. Of course, you'd need to GET IT to totally enjoy MOJO DAILY. Do not enter if you're an old foggy who thinks a witty discussion on procreation is "porn". Or if you have the sense of humour of cement... All others, click HERE

KL Going Wireless!

Woohoo! If you haven’t read the news yet, how disconnected are you lah? So here’s the awesome news: come 2008 (which is just a few days away), the people of Kuala Lumpur will enjoy FREE WIRELESS service!

According to one report, DBKL (God bless them!), is “bridging the digital divide by installing the wireless network for the entire city in a move to deliver services to its residents more efficiently and effectively. This will allow the city folks to be connected at all times no matter where they are.”

This means part of my New Year wish will actually come true! But seriously, this is HUGE; especially for those in the new media business, like my peeps and I.

With connectivity no longer an issue for KL-ites, the focus will then be on CONTENT . And whaddya know? Media Prima has plenty of those. Both on the revamped TV portals and on GUA.COM.MY.

Man, I’m already loving 2008!

Kerana Karina - The Party!

A special viewing party of Kerana Karina was held on Tuesday night at the swanky Saujana in Subang. The invitees included contest winners, GUA members, press and of course the cast and crew of Kerana Karina. On the agenda was the presentation of the Malaysia Book of Records to GUA.COM.MY for producing "The first online drama series". Yes, it's official now. Woohoo!

Guests were also shown the first and the last three episodes, making them the first in the world to view the final episode of Kerana Karina.

For entertainment, Marsha belted the theme song "Yang Mana?" while Ally Iskandar MCed the whole event.

Overall, it was a memorable event that also celebrated GUA's third month anniversary. When we started GUA and Kerana Karina, I never expected such success in a short period of time. Up to episode 18, KK has recorded 520,000 views while GUA has amassed a total of 12 million page hits in the 3 months we've been in existence!

Best of all, we've built a community which is active, loyal and always happening. Currently GUA has an incredible 45,000 registered members... and counting!

To say that I'm over the moon is a gross understatement...


Some of the food sections were named after KK characters. Mmmm...

With some very supportive GUA members

Marsha was also gifted an airbrush portrait done by GUA's own forum moderator, Vatos

KK on MHI


Kerana Karina has 2 more episodes to go, so we were on Malaysia Hari Ini to plug it as usual : ) It was a lively session with Roslan, Marsha and Sazzy constantly bantering and even exchanging "in-jokes". But a bit too short, though. Bummer. But I did manage to get the message out and we're expecting healthy numbers for the last 2 episodes. And tomorrow's the exclusive viewing party for the final ep at Saujana, Subang. Woohoo!
kerana karina

Memang Heboh!

Saturday was so-so, but Sunday brought in the peeps by the truckloads. We managed to register a few hundreds more new members who took home exclusive goodies. Kerana Karina star Zizan Nin also came by on Sunday. We also had extra committee members in the form on GUA members who proved to be a dedicated and happening bunch. Thanks guys!

KK star Zizan made it merrier

GUA on MHI

For the past few Mondays, I've appeared on Malaysia Hari Ini to do my GUA.COM.MY plug. And it's been great fun (save for the part where I have to be at the office by 7.15am). But beginning this coming Monday, the slot will be a recorded one. The first installment features a young new talent, Sari, hosting the whole bit with yours truly as the GUA rep. So, do and try to catch it this Monday, 7.30am onwards. If you're up by then, that is...

On A Roll... Still

Today: Starbucks, Ikano... And oh yeah, the endless Xmas carols kinda helping too : )

I'm On A Roll!


Been struggling to get going with my next drama project (which is still P&C btw) this past couple of weeks. So what did I do? I went to The Gardens at Mid Valley (for the first time ever) today, found myself a Starbucks and guess what?, it actually did the trick. I wrote and I wrote and now it's 60% complete. And it doesn't suck. Toffee Nut Latte saved my life!

See You Next Year!

So okay, “Percayalah Sayang” didn’t make it to Juara Lagu but full marks to Vince for a top-notch performance. Overall, the show was quite entertaining with a pretty lively crowd. But man, it was burning hot inside the studio! Shouldn’t have worn baju dua lapis… : )

"Dude, can you wear a skull on national TV lah?"


Rockers meh? Not truly convinced...

The moment of truth...

Mawi made it...

And support for Siti is still as stong as ever...

Good luck to all the finalists! I might be there for a totally different thing... He he he.

It's D-Day!

Yup, today "Percayalah Sayang" will be competing in the semis of Muzik-Muzik where 5 of the 10 competing songs in this category will go on to Anugerah Juara Lagu to be held in January 08. So how am I feeling? Optimistic, actually. But boy it's pretty tough this year in pop/rock with so many heavyweights involved. Wish me luck!

Forward to 00:54 for my short interview on this past ep of Muzik Muzik.

Didn't know that this is Baskin Robbins' slogan as well. Sounds more like what guys usually say to girls... no?

Marvellous Miri!

Miri will always have a special place in my heart. When I first joined the judiciary back in 1996, my first posting was to the city of Miri, Sarawak as a magistrate. Loved the placed instantly. Laidback, fairly clean and with a beach to boot, the only thing I didn’t like was the fact it was too damn far, and expensive, to balik kampong. Hey, Tony Fernandes was still selling CDs then, ok?

After close to 2 years in Miri, I got a transfer back to KL. Since then I’ve been back there a couple of times while I was still in the Judiciary. The last time was probably back in 2000.

And two weeks ago, I was back there, this time for my new baby, GUA.COM.MY. And it was awesome. It’s still hot as hell, but Miri remains the cool place I left some 10 years ago.


Madli's was the first ever restaurant in Miri I had dinner at.
It's still there, and still serving satay... in the morning!

Of course I just had to have my Mee Kolok. After 7 bloody years!
The city centre's awesomely clean...


And the skyline's spectacular, as usual
gua.com.my
Whoever runs the city SHOULDN'T receive a broom...


That's Mega Hotel. The "shopping complex"'s pretty dead though


The Tamu's still standing proud.
This is where you go for everything and anything...


Was good to see old buildings spruced up

This is the place I used to go for breakfast every other day. At 8.30 sharp, 2 sexy ladies who work at the salon would walk by. Everyone would just stare. Or drool. Or both...


But to my horror, the old magistrate's court I used to work at has been torn down!!!
They paved paradise to put up a parking lot!!!


Miri's a city with a thousand Inns.
You can find one in every corner of the freakin' place...

Went to have some nice seafood at this place called Yi Hak Hai.
Go ahead, laugh. It's funny


The midi vege. Yummy


Can't remember what it's called, but it's absolutely gorgeous...

At the humble GUA booth...
gua.com.my
A couple of old colleagues also popped by!

And yes, Air Supply and Sugar Bun are still big around here! : )
