Wanna look cute like Anne Curtis, Filipina actress. (Perlukah kita nampak cantik macam ni?) Or superfit like Marc Nelson. (aduh, perut aku!!)
And the gorgeous Kristin Hermosa
OK,..for the guys and gals. Are you one? the one who are worried about having extra baggage? Worry bout that fine wrinkle? Worry about getting old not so graciously? I keep on trying to tell myself not to worry bout it. But, when you watch a movie or flip through magazines, we are always 'presented' with an array of beautiful people in the planet. And know what, only 10% of the whole world population are considered beautiful and have fabulous body. Are you like me, influenced by vanity? Worrying about my waistline, getting crows feet, receding hairline, not that fit body and the list goes on. Hmm..I've tried not to think about it too much and just let nature takes it course but there's a little part of me telling me not to. Look, why do we want to look good or better than we are now? It's the mating game. We want to look for a mate. To do that, we must be beautiful? Do we? So now, I (publicly) announce that I will keep myself healthy, eat well, sleep well, play hard, enjoy hard..hehehe. But try (oh no!) not to get too overboard with pursuing the need to look like a freakin supermodel or a celebrity, coz I'm not..(yet) hahahhaha... Anyway, feast your eyes on these insanely beautiful, symmetrical, fit human beings. Enjoy. OMG, the ultra sexy Jessica Alba! (kalaulah muka saya macam Dennis..Oh no!!)
Yup, yesterday at 10:00am, my youngest sister, Bernardita (married to Roger Ortiz Gonzales of Uruguay) delivered a healthy baby boy, Thiago Balanjiu Ortiz. He is 50.5cm long??? and 3.7kg. Oh no! More christmas presents. When I get back home to Kk, I'll dedicate one post just for the little boy. Habislah budak ni. Have to teach him talk Kadazan, Malay, English, Tagalog and Spanish... Welcome to the world Thiago!
What are friends to me? 1) They are the ones who rides the bus with you. If it breaks down. Everyone pushes! 2) They are the ones who laughs with you when you are drunk 3) They are the ones who tease you on durians or takes pictures of food 4) They know all about you but still likes you 5) They know about your faults and loves you more. One who looks for a friend without faults will have none. 6) They show their love when you are in times of trouble
Enam saja lah for now... Love you guys! "In the sweetness of friendship let there be laughter, and sharing of pleasures." -- Kahil Gibran
I went to office today feeling ok. No problem. Tapi, tiba2 after pukul 4 petang terasa sejuk. Badan trus rasa lemah ni.. pernah kah gitu? tiba2 ja. Now, hidung saya hebat berlari (runny nose), fever lagi tu..sialan tul! And tomorrow is friday, hari Oleng-Oleng sedunia!!! oh tidak!! Saya terpaksa makan Panadol. Harap2 bisuknya sihat. Oklah..biasanya urang bilang, kalau sakit minum banyak air. Isshh..terpaksalah. Kalau Chivas bulikah tu? :-)
So Ok, we are going to Sipadan again but its so worth it. Sesiapa yang nda pigi tu,..hahaha tu lah. Next time kita simpan duit sama2 for few months pas tu, sure everyone can go. Those has done the scuba diving for the first time like I did in July know that once you do Sipadan, anywhere else is not up to standard except for Palawan, Philippines and Manado, Sulawesi. Those who are scared of sharks, well, ikan yu disini tidak makan manusia lah. They are few, the White Tip, Black Tip, GreyReef etc. I swam with few and they were harmless. The last time we dived, they were at least 4 keliling kami. The divemaster said 'wah, untungnya kita hari ni, sebab banyak shark'. Later after I went up the boat, I noticed my shin was bleeding, kena corals. Patutlah banyak shark, they smelt my blood. Oopss.
I would love to go to Palawan next. Palawan is an island province of the Philippines located in the Western Visayas region. Its capital is Puerto Princesa City and it is the largest province in terms of land area. The islands of Palawan stretch from Mindoro to Borneo in the southwest. It lies between the South China Sea in the northwest and Sulu Sea in the southeast. The province is named after its largest island, Palawan Island.
Cantik oh tempat tu. Then I'd love to go to my mom's hometown, well, she was from Zamboanga City but my mom's family moved to Cebu. Cebu ni banyak campuran Sepanyol coz it was colonised by the Spanish centuries ago. My mom is a mestisa, kacukan Filipina-Sepanyol (sebelah datuk). That's why all my family members bernama sepanyol kecuali saya,Joseph....huhuhu. Anyway, saya dengar from my friends that kalau kamu pigi sana, sure tidak mau balik. So, kawan-kawan semua. Pray that I win the Toto Jackpot, RM14 million, semua kamu saya bawah melancung ke Cebu. Then we party like nobody business. Tidak dibenarkan baca buku disana...hahahhahaa. The City of Cebu (Cebuano: Dakbayan sa Sugbo, Filipino: Lungsod ng Cebu) is the capital of Cebu in the Philippines and is an important metropolitan center in the country. The city lies on the eastern shore of the island of Cebu and is the first Spanish settlement in the country. It is the country's main domestic shipping hub and is home to more than 80% of the country's inter-island shipping companies. Cebu is also the main hub, outside of the capital, of international flights into the country and is the most important center of commerce, trade, and industry in the Visayas and Mindanao, the southern parts of the country. It is because of this and other important aspects that Cebu City is dubbed the Queen City of the South.
But for now,..kawan-kawan, I'm looking forward to go to Sipadan with all of you. Kita gempakkan Sipadan & Mabul. Kita snorkel dengan penuh perasaan. We suba dive macam ikan lumba-lumba. 10 days to go!! Yippeee...!!
So, what do friends, group of friends normally talk about in a bar? When I was in U.K, I had to work with a Portugese-French company as a researcher whilst doing my PhD. Guess what do researchers i.e. scientist talk about? Yup the first 1 hour they were talking about work, their findings, stats etc, etc.. (yawn..boring). I grabbed my Greek friend (let's call her Tash) to the dance floor. She was more than happy to do so. However, after an hour or so, upon coming back to our table (yes,..we danced for an hour!..those were the days)..my colleagues were now talking about tits and asses!! Yes!! let's talk people. Now, are these the type of conversations these so called intelligent people talk about in bars, pubs or clubs? Oh yeah they do.
Another story in KL. My colleagues and their friends in Mont Kiara. A lawyer, an engineer and us managers. Professionals with degrees and masters degree sitting in a packed pub. And what do we talk about guys? Nope, we were not talking about work, not talking about this great book Brian read last weekend, nor did we talk about current affairs. We were talking about our bosses, tits, asses, how to get laid at the end of the night, clothes ,..etc etc. Are we bunch of idiots? Yes we are in a on-sober kinda sense. But are we stupid? You be the judge of it. I seriously believe that those who actually talk about statistics, how to improve the socio-economy of the country, in depth political affairs etc.. are idiots! Who in the right frame of mind would go to a social place like pubs or bars and talk about 'intelligent' stuff? A hypocrite probably..Geez! Imagine reading a newspaper or reading a book/novel in a pub or a karaoke with music blaring out loud and some fun people enjoying a good session of Elvis' My Way. To the general public, whoever is doing that is a moron. If you want to look intelligent, be one or look the part, go to a library for goodness sakes. Don't embarress yourself in public places like the pubs or bars. If you want to exert all this 'intelligent' vibes, for the love of God, do it at home in front of your PC. Otherwise, loosen up and have fun. Be a goof ball amongst your friends. The highest probability is that you'll make a fool of yourself with your goof ball friends and tomorrow everyone will laugh about it. It's not permanent for your information..hahahaa. I enjoy going out with my group of friends. Mesh, Gidong, Josie, Tompok, Lumis, PS, Nel, Mamai, Donna, Arteo, Jason,Duffy, Gurangak, Bobby and others. Are we unintelligent? Hahaha,..intelligent enough to live life and enjoy each others company. Intelligent enough not to read newspapers in a pub.
Ooooh.. read this. Intelligence (also called intellect) is an umbrella term used to describe a property of the mind that encompasses many related abilities, such as the capacities to reason, to plan, to solve problems, to think abstractly, to comprehend ideas, to use language, and to learn. There are several ways to define intelligence. In some cases, intelligence may include traits such as creativity, personality, character, knowledge, or wisdom. Hahhaaa.. if you are the type who reads a newspaper or a novel/book in a rowdy, loud, dimmed lit pub or bar..you do not have 'the capacity to reason or comprehend ideas'.. You're not so intelligent after all. Furthermore, an intelligent person does not brag about his so called intelligence. Only a fool does that or someone with a condition called Inferior Complex (I'll talk about that in the future).
But to all my friends, my drinking buddies, my adventure any time, come lets play volleyball, my goof ball friends... you are loved. And most of all, we are no IDIOTS!
David Archuleta Talked About His Current Single “Crush”Posted August 17th, 2008 by fashiongossip David Archuleta is working on songs every chance he gets while on tour, though he doesn’t expect any of his own compositions to make it to the release.

I won’t limit myself.” The 17-year-old singer also revealed that he is also learning about music history by studying radio charts, exclaiming: “I love charts!” He exclaimed with that cute grin that has melted millions of hearts.
Can Whitney Houston still sing? The diva's voice is feared to have been weakened by crack cocaine
Thursday, 14 August 2008
Whitney Houston’s planning a dramatic comeback after 6 years out of the spotlight and the original diva hopes that her drug and relationship demons haven’t ruined her career for ever.
'She’s convinced that she’s still at the top of her game,' a source tells Now.
Snapped on 27 July at West Hollywood club Villa, Whitney, 45, looked happy with toyboy Ray J, 27, and onlookers said she didn’t touch any alcohol.
Her new track Like I Never Left has been leaked on to the web – and some forums suggest that her power vocals have been weakened by years of crack abuse.
One said: ‘It’s not bad, but it’s not good.’ The track was leaked ahead of plans for a new album this autumn and one of the album’s producers is Mark Ronson.
‘She’s got all the top producers involved,’ the source continues. ‘It just depends if her voice can cut it.’ >> But go have a listen her leaked track "Like I Never Left" in Youtube. Nice song! I quite like it. JR
Walaupun dalam suasana yang boleh dikatakan ok, kadang-kadang ada masanya ataupun saat, rasakan seperti berjam dimana anda terasa 'sedih'. Padahal pada ketika itu anda tidaklah ada bergaduh dengan sesiapa mahupun mengalami keadaan 'stress' atau tension disebabkan kerjaya. Pernah? Hari ni, saya terasa terdapat sesuatu kesedihan yang saya belum pasti dapat saya selami, mengapa, apa... kekeliruan? Tidak juga. Tenang? Ya, memang pada saat ini, hati saya terasa tenang tetapi ada sesuatu yang tidak menyenangkan. Kesedihan kah itu? Macam juga, tetapi tidak teramat sangat hingga terlalu mengganggu perasaan namun sempat membuat ku berfikir..Hmm,..sudah lah. Kadang-kadang jika kita terlalu melayan perasaan, begitulah lah jadinya. Saya bukanlah seseorang yang negatif, sebab saya senantiasa merasakan walau apa pun yang negatif atau yang kurang baik telah berlaku, semestinya ada suatu kebaikan atau unsur positif disebaliknya.
Mungkin disebabkan saya jauh dari lubuk kasih? Tidak pernah saya nafikan walaupun seketika. Mungkinkah saya terlalu lama berapa di tempat yang jauh dari keluarga, yang tersayang, rumah dan kawan-kawan? Boleh dipertikaikan, namun apakan daya jika komitmen kepada kerja telah membawaku jauh dari tempat yang membawa keriangan, ketenteraman dan yang lebih penting, tempat yang membuatku terasa diperlukan. Cukuplah layanan hatiku pada hari ini... cukuplah untuk saat ini, tak ingin ku sesat dihati yang jadi penghalang kegembiraan.....
My ex used to say, "why are you making such a fuss on improving yourself or forcing yourself to do things with me? That's not really you and you don't seem or projecting an honest disposition. Don't be a fake!" Geezzz!! I've always believed that relationships sometimes need a bit of a workout. Not the Madonna kinda workout where you should run 4 miles a day and spend 1 hour in the gym. There's no relationship where both partner are so damn compatible and everything works. Example, if I may.. If you love to watch TV most days but your partner is somewhat a fitness freak. What do you do if you love him/her? Take a break from the TV and grab you running shoes that has probably not seen a pebble since George Bush won US the presidential election. Or worst, still have the price tag. Now, you tell me if that is being fake? To me it's a sign of your commitment to that relationship, your love of your partner to spend quality time. You are giving people! Being a giver is better than taking, no? I think so. But I seriously don't mind taking a new pair of Nike shirt I say at 1Borneo last weekend... ehem.. Those who don't, well,..here's a bottle of Clorox..drink it!
Whether you are in a boy-girl, girl-girl, boy-boy, boy-girl-boy (oopss ,..wrong script)..relationship. I guess they are all the same. If you take a shit and it smells, people,..listen. We are all the same. We all have freakin' smelly, God help me, eewwwww gross shit. If your shit smells of freshly cut grass or freshly ironed lemony smell shirt or of peach blossom in the early spring in beautiful Okinawa, overlooking a mountain with clear blue waterfall.. man! You are an alien! But if you are,..call me though. If your shit smells so good, I wanna see where it came out from...eeewwwww!!! Hahahaa... Pervert! "The only thing that scares me more than space aliens is the idea that there aren't any space aliens. We can't be the best that creation has to offer. I pray we're not all there is. If so, we're in big trouble."~ Ellen Degeneres.
So people..there's nothing wrong in changing a bit of your habits or your non-existing habit for the sake of your loved ones. So ok, you couldn't keep up with him/her on a 3 km run. But it'll be fun watching your partner slowing down just trying to help you rub your back while your throwing up in a nearby bush after just 5 minutes of running. Or, massaging your neck due to massive cramping because you were running like a camel in the Sahara, because you thought it would be fun doing that. Nope. Love him/her. Be a giver.
Your true love is who, When you make a fool of yourself, Don't believe that this condition is permanent.
All that drinking in the past week is making me feel a bit weak. So i've decided to go on a detox..to flush out all the impurities and toxins out of the system..hahaha. I bet this weekend will be another boozin' day. But as long I keep myself healthy with exercises and good food during the wekday..hmmm.. Well guys, get yourself detoxed. Dunno if that'll help though. Drinking water provides the much needed hydrations to the cells and body as a whole. A certain amount of regular water intake can help you in more ways than one. Sweating is an essential part of the detoxification process. It is as essential as proper bowel movements. Sweat can change lipid Toxins into water soluble toxins and these water soluble toxins are then easily eliminated through the pores as Sweat. Hot, cold and Sweat baths open up the pores for smooth Sweating. So let's all go and exercise!! Cheers
I haven't been to Port Dickson so I'm looking forward to it. I'll be having a 3 day course there, 5th-8th Aug. Hmm,..normally this kind of courses only makes you fat, breakfast, tea breaks,lunch... Leaving tomorrow..Hope to take some nice pics there.Bye for now.
" 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 -
