The Perth Experience

Ah, Perth. What a perfect holiday we had there last week. Beautiful sights, friendly people, nice weather… we simply couldn’t ask for more.

Perth’s a city with 1.65 million people, and I think they must be among the happiest lot on the planet. No wonder they’re generous with their greetings and do not stare at us for looking different.
Our days were filled with leisurely walks and photo snapping (LOADS of photo snapping) and stress was literally an alien concept.

Our favourite sights and places? Well, Swan River was spectacular.

And Kings Park, which was really near our hotel, was awesome. For flora and photography lovers, this place is a must.
The shopping district of Hay and Murray streets were cool as well with loads of nice little shops and stuff to eat.
Oh yeah, we also took a river cruise to Fremantle, the port city with loads to offer. On top of the list was a Submarine Tour! Yup, for AUD$8, you get to go inside a sub and experience the claustrophobia first hand! And the seafood at the Fremantle Harbour was finger lickin’ good.
So yeah, Perth was simply perfect. No need for a thousand words on this, just look and look again at the pictures!

The 7 Coolest Things Of The Past 7 Days

1. UFO-shaped cloud spotted in Moscow
Man, the world is just getting creepier by the day.

2. 100-year old woman in Australia breaks shot putt record at World Masters Games
She threw it for 13 feet 4.2inches. That’s 13 feet more than you unfit bums out there!

Next up for Tony Fernandes: Applying for “King of the World” job.

MPB Raya Meriah!

So today we had the annual Media Prima Hari Raya Open House at Sri Pentas. And as usual, it was awesomely meriah with loads of marvelous food on the menu.
...Our own company Alt Media had a stall called ‘Gua Punya Cupcakes’ where we served up – you guessed it – Cupcakes. And since 1Malaysia was the theme (what else?), we custom ordered cupcakes with cute little Malaysians as icing on top.

...And the cupcakes were a definite hit as we ran out merely an hour after the stall was opened. It was also good catching up with colleagues whom you don't get to see on a daily basis although they're just around the corner.

Meanwhile, the evening session saw clients and celebs enjoying the atmosphere and entertainment. My favourite bit? Mee Rebus Baidali! Enuff said.

"Pisau Cukur" Premiere

So a couple of nights ago, I attended the premiere of "Pisau Cukur", an 'urban' comedy, at the Cineleisure, The Curve. And I must say it was a well put together event with a very good turnout....


The movie itself was pretty good, and I must give an "A" for the acting and "B" for the story. So make sure you catch it starting Nov 5th!

Green Day Coming!

Well, to Singapore, but close enough. And so, on January 14th next year, one of my biggest dreams will come true; to watch Billie Joe perform in the flesh. The best part? I'm making this an office trip! Uh huh. The bus to Singapore is right next door, so the plan is to hop on the coach the day of the gig, have a rockin' good time and hitch hike back to KL. Punk mah...

The 7 Coolest Things Of The Past 7 Days

1. US President Barrack Obama wins the Nobel Peace Prize
Maybe he should now be the MCA President as well…

2. Marge Simpson to be on the cover of an upcoming Playboy issue
The magazine says having Marge on the cover is something “the 20-something crowd would be into”. Funny, I thought the 20-something crowd would be into ACTUAL boobs and stuff.

3. Fasha Sandha finally getting married!
Well, not quite. Maybe next week, or the week after, or the week after that...

4. Miley Cyrus quits Twitter because of boyfriend
Now, there’s a relationship problem we never saw coming…

5. Heidi Klum will finally take husband’s Seal, Samuel surname
So she’ll be Heidi Samuel? That sounds soo boring lah.

6. Paris smooches a chimp
Frogs, chimps… she will kiss them all.

7. Simon Cowell turns 50!
And releases a series of fragrances that will leave your man boobs smelling fresh all day.

Cameras To Roll In January...

Oh yes, shooting for the movie I co-wrote will finally start in January 2010. Hurrah!

Casting has not been finalised, but we pretty much know who we want for the roles. The hero will be someone famous making his acting debut, while the rest will be somewhat familiar faces with tons of talent.

Meanwhile, I've started writing my second movie screenplay and I'm having a blast. This one will be "Malaysian" in every way and has the Mamak special as the central theme. Not merely the backdrop or main location, but the whole story will be based on this popular Malaysian pop culture icon.

It's been really exciting so far as scenes just keep popping up in my head, although major revision on the dialogue will be needed once I get totally in tune with Mamak jargons and nuances.

More updates coming soon...
