Music News

Mariah Carey is on track to collect her 18th No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart next week. "Touch My Body," the first single from her upcoming album, dipped one place to No. 15 on the latest survey.

It doesn't take anywhere close to "4 Minutes" to realize that Madonna is poised to score her first top 10 hit since 2005's "Hung Up." The launch single from upcoming "Hard Candy"—her 11th and final studio album for Warner Bros.—co-stars Justin Timberlake, with production props from Timbaland. There's an awful lot going on in the busy dance track: sing-song verses, insistent foghorns, cowbells, chants of "tick-tock" and "Madonna, Madonna," and a rap from Timbaland—but the trade-off chorus between Madge and Justin of "We've only got four minutes to save the world" is hooky enough unto itself to sell the song. "4" qualifies as an event record between superpowers who not only share equal billing, but sound gangbusters together. Expect instantaneous penetration for this spring break '08 anthem.

Soo..what do you all think? Like her new image? She's back!! Udui cepat2 lah kuarkan album..

Back in KK..again

Whew..! Believe it or not I fly Sandakan-Kota Kinabalu every week for the last 2 years! Few of my friends in Sandakan do not understand why I have to spend money on going back home to KK. Well.. I have my dogs and people I care about in KK. Money can't buy that right? I thank JC for that. He is great. But home is where the heart is. Having Rex jumping on me when I get back home is undescribable. Bobbi licking my face and Sisqo follow suit, biting my shirt or something. Dogs are just a wonderful gift. You can scold them and yell at them (I don't,..just an example lah) but they still wag their tail and love you to bits. If you are a dog lover you'll know. They chase your blues away, your stress out of the window. I love dogs..they are better then most people. But I also feel blessed that I have few really non pretentious, genuine good friends. You just know you have great friends when, they text you in the morning just to say good morning. When they text you the food they are eating, they call you just to say they bought a new shirt, or they call you just to tell you who is out in American Idol. Everyone wants to have a ride with you in your big beautiful limo..but when that limo breaks down..only true friends will walk with you to the nearest workshop.. Do you have these friends? The kind of friends who would jump into the band wagon when you say " guys let's go to Philippines..and they do". Not the kind that say " oh, ok let's see..oh maybe not.. Oh..I'll go when I'll go".. Back to dogs..I love my dogs.. they give you unconditional love,..they know not of pretense..They genuinely love you and appreciate your presence. Look around yourself.. Do you have these so called friends. If you do , let them know. I call them my angels.. To my angels, thanks. I feel blessed.. Ciao for now.

I'm home from KL.. Characters


Yeah back from KL. trainng of course. Know what it was a very insightful course, to identify characters and why we are like that. Great, now I am less judgmental because now I realise that people are natural, innately like that. That's the way they are. You see, I've learnt that we are innantely this sort of character but as we grow (environmental, situation, work place etc) plays a role in developing certain characters but you natural self is still as is. Now I now, why my boss is like that, my friends are different etc. When one starts being standoffish, that's the way they are. wheeww.. I'm going to be less judgmental and gossip less now..hehehee.. Not that I am but I do have my little "you know what's, blah, blah,blahs" moments.

So..anyways..after the course I heade off to KLIA tryong to catch an earlier flight, but unfortunately I was a bit late so missed that. So I spent 3 hours wandering around the airport and ended up buying a Lancome moisturiser for Me cost RM242!! Oh No.. But I guess, if it makes you look better then why not.. But RM242 for a moisturiser?? damn.. Boarding time. Let's face it, us being Malaysian are most times being quite noncivic -minded. How many times have you heard the ground staff annouce " ladies & gentlemen, we are about to board, we would like to have families with children, sr citizens and passenger who requires special assistance to board first." Familiar? Guess who boards first? Yes!! The stupid Malaysians! Here's another one. "Pls do not switch on your cellphone until we reach the terminal building or when the seat belt sign is off". Wanna guess who couldn't wait to swit on their handphones? Yess!! 100 points to you if you say the Malaysians. Some of us are total dickheads! What difference does it make? I mean, you still have to walk a good 8 minutes before you get to the car, or whoever is pickinh you up or the taxi. Why not make a call then? I understand not. Anyway, I'm not being judgmental but its a fact. Thank god I'm not one of these sad people. Gotta go.. I have a plane to catch, yup..flying off to Sandakan. but I'll be back to KK tomorrow evening... Ciao

Kuala Lumpur

I fly every week. Now I have a course I have to attend for 3 day in KL. I'm leaviing tomorrow and I'm not really jumping with joy. I don't mind though but it's just the long 2 hours flight..hmmm. I'll be staying at Shah Alam's Grand Bluewave Hotel which is like miles from civilisation (not really, just dramatising it). Hope to meet up with Gurangak though and take him out for makan or something. Then I could just cheer myself up with some shopping at 1 Utama or IKEA...yeahh!!!! Now come to think of's a good thing. My sister is in Kl so I could give her a call and catch up. So, packing my stuff, travelling light again tomorrow and hope this course is an interesting one. But must not miss the sunday dog club though. Ciao for now. Sleepy.. zzzzzzzzzzzz.

Hati Merindu

Picture of my piano.... And my new song. It will be recorded Live, piano only with few strings in the chorus. Hope to record it soon. It is somewhat quite 'kerohanian' a bit.

Sering Kali, hati ini
Tiada pernah mengerti
Mengharapkan kau kembali
Di sisi ku menemani

Indah kasih ku rasakan
Saat tanganmu, kau hulurkan
kau beri ku kekuatan
Menepuh hari depan

Masih ku ingat s'lalu
Damainya dalam dakapan mu
Besar kasih sayang mu
Mengubahkan seluruh jiwa raga ku

Saat hati merindu
Lembutnya bisik suaramu
jauh di sudut hati ku
Menyatakan ku cinta pada mu
Kasih ku


Tanjung Aru Sunset
ArTeo, Mesh & Myself decided that we wanted to take some pictures of KK's sunset. It was rather cloudy today but we hope to get some nice pics anyway. Got all our tripods, cams ready and it was a wonderful day. It was ashame though that we couldn't get a full blown sunset but the break of colours were amazing! See for yourself. Although it would have been nice to have some pictures without the people around. If the dogs were around, they could have chased all these people away. but then again, it's also great to have some human elements in them. We left soon after the show was over. Mesh & Me have a game of tennis. We didn't mind waiting for a bit as the view was breathtaking and worth it and a definite change of routine.

Doggie Day

Yup,'s some photos of few dogs taken that day..not including Mesh of course.. He's no dawg! hahhaa..

Doggie Time

Rex & Me
Last Sunday, Mesh, Bobbi, Sisqo, Rex & Me joined the MKA (Malaysian Kennel Association) Dog Club. The boys get to meet up with so many new friends. First activity was the obedience training, basic one. Bobbi, Rex & Sisqo passed with flying colour..hehehe, they had basic training from us before. It was really hot though and every dog was panting due to the heat. Thank god I brought water along. Rex was clearly hot.. must be because of his long thick coat..hehehe. To sum it all up. they had fun. Can't wait for next sunday.

Rex is Sick

Sick Rex
Poor Rex. When I got home from Sandakan last night, normally Rex would be jumping for joy welcoming me home, but not yesterday. He came to greet me but with a very unenthusiastic wag of his tail. I knew straight away that he was not himself. I talked to him for a bit. As I sat down on the couch, I called him and he obediently came. Putting his head on my lap, he obviously needed some hugs from me. I did so, a rub behind his ears, kissed his furry cheeks and loads of hugs. He then gave this sad puppy eyes and I knew he was sick. I tried feeding him but he refused to eat. I told him that we'll see Dr. Skinner tomorrow, first thing in the morning. I bet he understood as he slowly moved to his usual spot. Next morning we went to see Doc. He had a temperature, a fever. So Rex got a jab and some antibiotics. Took him home and gave him loads of water. 4 hours later, he was better! Yeah! I fed him and he finished his meal. Yes! But no long walks and jogging for him today. He needs his rest. Tomorrow ah boy, we'll go for a nice long walk...But for now, get some rest.

Taal Cowboys

One for the road. The Taal Cowboys! Hehehe..after 1'30" in boat ride, to and fro. almost 2 hours by horse. Did I tell my ass hurts like hell. then the numbness sets in.. OOhh mommy I can't feel my ass. Did I shit myself cos I can't feel a thing! The boat ride was way fun. Me & Mesh took off our shirts off because it was way choppy and everyone was wet. was like being thrown a pail of water. wet but damn enjoyable. We got sunbunt after that. Ahh we reached back to the resort and we opt of a chicken adobo lunch. 5 minutes and it was gone. It was one heck of a dish. The ice water was divine.(maybe its because we were so thirsty). This pic was taken after the hearty meal. Mesh enjoyed the chili. OMG, I can feel my ass!

Taal Volcano Erupted 33 times


1911- Volcano Island was demolished, 1334 people were killed mostly by ash and pyroclastic flows. In addition, lava flows and tsunamis on crater lake killed others. Ash was spewn on Manila 60 km away; a puppy was the only survivor.

Taal Lake & Volcano

Taal Lake & Volcano

Here's something different. So once upon a time, there was a little tiny seahorse, who was much smaller than all his siblings and seahorse friends. He wished and wished and wished to be a taller seahorse and on his 6th birthday he found a bottle and examined it and out popped a genie. He was so excited, he immediately wished to be a taller than his friends, so he could now look down on them. The genie did not quite understand him, so instead of making him a taller seahorse, he gave the seahorse his own lake on the top of a huge mountain in the middle of where he used to live to make him taller than all his friends. The seahorse was very angry for not having gotten any taller himself and swam furiously around his new lake, so fast and so much, he created bubbles and heated up all the water. The genie also became very upset that the seahorse was so mad, that he decided to try to ruin the mountain he made for him. One of the seahorses friends overheard the genies words and begged him to not ruin the huge mountain so that his friend would live. The genie decided he would destroy as much as he could without hurting the seahorse. So he blew it up, making it very small, but one of the rocks from the eruption ended up falling into the middle of the lake, almost killing the seahorse. So now, whenever the seahorse says its okay, the genie blows up the little mountain, throwing rocks and ash into the air to try to let the seahorse come back down out of his own private lake and play with his friends.

Intramuros..Let's go

Me & Mesh

At the end of a long day at Intramuros, he had to get support. Whew, luckily a Mesh to act as a wall. We are actually near the exit. Whats next is to go shopping. Jom! let's go and spend some money..

Field Trip At Intramuros, Manila


It was probably a Kid's Day coz there were hundreds of this little people. They were so cute going through their own stuff. Some were distracted, others busy taking pictures, few sipping their drinks (it was a hot day). Funny that most schools were doing a field trip then. Cute.

The Cathedral


So many has been said in Gidong's, Gurangak's and Mesh's blogs.. So what i'll do is just to show few glipmses of what was not yet shown. This is an old Spanish Cathedral. That's it. Because after arriving at Intramuros, I got car sick. The taxi was TMTH (too much to handle).. The minute I went out, I felt like I was going to throw up. Bit dehydrated for a while. but after I got myself a bottle of water I was fine. Nasib it only lasted for 5 minutes only. The initial cathedral was actually a bamboo church built somewhere in the 1800s. Burnt down they built a concrete church but the earthquake sometime in the early 1900s tore it down to rubbles.. Too lazy to fine out more about the history. They finally built this one in the 60's. Tadaa...!!

I Will Never Drink Again

Last night didn't do much for me. Not so much on the tipsy side. We always say "oh God, i will never drink again", especially when you couldn't even remember your mother's name at that time!. We all have the same share of experience. I was really trashed last month during a BBQ party. Oh in the previous post. I didn't promised then but I did in December after my birthday bash. I remembered jumped out of a moving car and threw up by the ide of the road. "I will never do this again, NEVER!!", i remembered saying. And guess what, I'm still doing it. I bet you did too. Why then? The kick right?! hahaha.. I must admit I love the occasional drink and the occasional 'let loose, don't worry be happy" state. Maybe for me it's a time to forget some troubles I had recently or pressure at work or I just got a raise or something. The numbing feeling, your head feels like your balancing a hippo on our head, your body suddenly becomes a music absorbing vessel,..amplifying music into dance..and you dance like there's no tomorrow..well maybe that's what I wanted. I'm not sure. I'm going out again tonight,..let me find out. Oh guys.. why don't you find out too and let me know. Let's compare notes. But.. do us a favour.. Don't drink & drive. Ciao!

Bar Observation

This can only be done when you are sober enough to analyse, hehehee. I went out last night with my regular friends for a drink or two or three. The table adjacent to us were already there when we arrived (arrived around 11pm ish). The two girls were laughing talking about their friends. His male friend seemed to be more interested in the 2 guys at Table 4..hmmm. But soon, one of the girls called that guy at Table 4 to join them. He did. Now they start talking. One of the waiters joined in, hugging one of the gals (obviously he knows her). He even forgot that he worked there. Now, at the bar (oo..where were we, we are at table 5, try to visualise the layout..hehehe). The older guys (uncle-uncle) were having such a blast that they start to dance in the most funniest fashion. Tummy out, butt out and shake hard! Hahaha.. Bar 4, 2 girls were already at drunken state. One was so desperate of hugs & kisses (she looks like it) start to hug everyone at her vicinity..(thank god we were 3 tables away). Table 1, now these guys are drunk too (that's why is called a bar). Next thing you know, there was a commotion.. about a song. Who is supposed to sing..(this is a karaoke bar by the way). All were getting excited and started to group up near the DJ'c room. Hugs & kisses girl started to cry "It was my song!". Oh dear. Bar 2, guy in green started to dance that would make Paula Abdul cry, literally. Then Table 1, one of the guys gave me a neat Chivas! Oh no! This is my best drink ever..right. I couldn't say no to a free shot of whiskey... sshusshhh.. down the hatch in 2 seconds. I was drinking Top 10 (mixture of beer and stout) in Bristol they called it a Mickey Mouse (??? ddon't ask). So, soon after that, I started to get a bit tipsy. But the place was about to close..damn. We finished our drink and soon left. question is,.. What do you normally do when you are sober. No need to ask when you are drunk. Some of us don't even want to remember., including me hahahaha.. have a great weekend yo'll.

Tennis Quote From My Favourite Player

" I think about that sometimes - learning to play in a parking lot, stringing nets between cars. I learned to play by hitting against a brick wall, not a ball machine or other players. And my Father was my coach - teaching me from a twenty year-old book. When I hear people say that you can't make it in tennis if you don't have a lot of money, I know they're wrong. We didn't have much money. But I loved the sport and that was enough." - Monica Seles -
