Man Almost Loses Penis Humping Steel Bench

9.30.2008

hk-man-penis02 Man Almost Loses Penis Humping Steel Bench picture

In Hong Kong , the police received a disturbing call from a man in trouble (I got a forward email about this, but this news kinda happened last month - thanks Johnny! for highlighting it)

Xing, a 41 year-old man, was calling from LanTian park in the middle of the night. The lonely and disturbed man had apparently thought it would be fun to have sex with one of the steel sit-up benches around the park. The bench has numerous small holes in it, which Xing used to attempt to satisfy himself. However, once he became aroused he found that he was stuck and could not get his penis out of the small hole. He panicked and called the police to help him.

When police arrive they found Xian stuck face down where he had been stuck for some time.When doctors arrived on the scene they tried to release some of the pressure by removing some of his blood, but the penis was so swollen that they ended up having to cut the entire bench free and take it, with Xian attached, to the hospital.

4 painful hours later, Doctors finally separated Xian from his bench. Doctors stated that if he had been stuck for even an hour longer, they would have had to remove his penis.

guys, don't over do it with your toys!

Onion - Out of Order

9.29.2008

apparently the Onionminator is out of order

Yesterday I was at Ikea & being there I had to eat the famous rm2 Ikea hot dog! When I reach the Relish Table, this is what caught my eye. My boyfriend was laughing at this "out of order" sign. He said "how can Onions be out of order?? not out of stock? machines can go out of order but onion??"

Maybe the Onion-minator is out of order thus no more onions for our hot dogs!!! sad...

SHOW YOUR COUNTRY IN 5 POSTCARDS AND A BOOKMARK

In this swap challenge, I'm supposed to send 5 postcards & a bookmark (new & unwritten) to Christina (Greece) and a note explaining to her about my postcards. Today I sent the package off already to her before Pos Malaysia goes on a 5 day holiday for the Raya celebration. I hope she likes my postcards.

Foreign Maids are not Slaves.

There is something disturbing me for the past few years as I watched foreign maids do what they do in Malaysia. While there are employers who treated them humanely, there are others who abuse, take advantage and treated them like slaves. Where are their rights? don't they have basic employment & human rights like us? Deep down, aren't they trying to survive like everyone else?

We know abuses happened, punishments go astray. How about noticing that maids are also being used to work in restaurants, cafe, shops, and being "loan" to family members, friends and even for third parties? No one shares an ear or gives a damn about them or how they feel. Aren't they being employed to look after your house? note I said house not houses. They cook, clean and look after children too. Why do some employers, even us - think that they needed to do more than that? A moment of relaxation after doing the daily cleaning would result in "MY maid is so FREE goyang kaki at home". Come on, they're not your slaves to be work for 24/7. Just because they don't fight back, protest or tried to say no (and even at times don't even know if that's their job scope) don't mean you can in simple BULLY them.

While many of these commonly known problems are being highlighted what about the hidden issues of maids being forced to go to religious places? eating non-halal food? washings dogs and so forth. These are just some of the possible things that might be happening and no one is giving a damn about these maids. Why?

Where are their rights. Do they know their rights? read The Malaysian Bar's article and be a good Samaritan. They are humans, if u see anyone being abused, treated unfairly, poorly or taken advantage of - are you going to ignore this or do something? what would you do if u were a maid? how would you feel if your child or a family member is a maid and being treated in the same inhuman way? would u like to be treated the way you're treating your maid? think about it.

Youtube's Maid in Malaysia.

Don't tell me your maid gave u hell, so you're giving her hell back. Don't even try to tell me they deserved it. If you have treated your maid humanely you will have no problem reading my post. If you had in any way felt "insulted" by my post, my question is. Do I know you? Do I know your maid? Is she being abused?

bad stomache .. ugg...

AMBP Travel Ambassadors

9.27.2008

I just got back from Menara Star! It was an exciting evening meeting with bloggers who was selected to be travel ambassadors for ambp. I didn't get to meet all of them but I know that I am one of the 40 lucky bloggers among 200 over applicants, selected & invited to attend the launching of the new and revamp allmalaysia.info site (powered by The Star) and a cool travel tool (developed with MayFlower Travel Group) that allows visitors to book tickets for flights, accomodations, car rentals and tour packages.

QuaChee the blogger, also the author of 50+1 was on our hit list

Well the event didn't start until late so you know what happens when bloggers met each other for the first time (or anything for that matter). Cameras snapping away, exchanging information and blog sites, gossiping about anything you can think from education, politics to hentai (ops).


hurley posing for me

Then the launching started and they had a host of VIPS giving speeches & a brief introduction about the site & travel tool. It was a short one as buka puasa time is near and everyone is hungry! I was disappointed that the travel ambassadors were not given an opportunity to come out as a group to be introduce during launching, seeing that they view bloggers as partners and not as rivals.


Well I didn't take much pictures of the buffet as I was so hungry and had to wait for the others to buka puasa first. There's better & yummier food pictures at Shah's blog where he got to dig in before us. The pictures looks better than the food! his camera is good!


the invasion of bloggerzoiks

We headed to the cafeteria with our food and sat down. (left-bottom) I met Johnny who blogs about life, QuaChee who inspires, Tecky a food blogger, Hurley who jokes, (right-bottom) Thomas the ultimate, Sam the hamster lover, and lastly the guy who loves contests SoonSeng. I didn't know my evening would be so cool and happening. I had a blast meeting and getting to know them all. Michael told me to dress smart/semi-formal and these people show up in jeans and nice tops. If I knew I wouldn't have come as a Malaysian Mascot. Actually I was rushing to this event, I didn't know what to wear and decided a baju kurung would be "formal" and presentable for this occasion. Darn I felt like a endangered hippo species.

Nevertheless I can't wait for my 1st assignment! hopefully I get a nice suite with jacuzzi all by myself and go to spas and yummy places to review! just like Xana from Expat magazine. It's the experience that counts, so Mayflower please make it a unforgettable holiday experience! (don't put me sleeping with strangers and such!)


a video of the event

Things that I will blog about real soon:

http://i283.photobucket.com/albums/kk316/Undertaker876/crazy-cat.gif
  1. my Bangkok trip day 2! sorry sorry.. T_T
  2. my Garage Sales as I don't know how to do it T_T
  3. more movie preview!
sorry girls (and guys) been very caught up with moving into my new condo and thinking how to overcome the defects and renovations of the place that's giving me and my bf a headache until he nose bleed. Think twice if you're thinking about Hartamas Regency II condo, don't get nose bleed.

Updates to my condo problems:
  • floors tiles are loose and coming out! and we had a customized table on top of it! how do we fix tiles without breaking down the table? (also there's a slight chance floor tiles are out of stock also!)
  • management couldn't care less about the defective bathtub. It's a big problem as how are they going to bring in a new tub without breaking down the small bathroom?
  • our bathroom tiles are "out of stock" and I don't know what the developer will do now.
  • our bathroom wall tiles are also hollow! u can play music on the walls.
  • the condo lights has mood swings - on off by itself. Complained to the management and all they can say is, it's our problem. We buy and replace ourselves. Initially they said its the bulb problem, so we went and buy bulbs. Still same problem. They now said it's the thing inside that needs to be replace. Imagine that we move in August and the lights seems to be 100 years old?
  • stupid master bedroom with weird shapes, we have no idea how to design this room which has a wall jutting out from nowhere and 8 windows!

Stila Girlfriend Club

http://makeupbag.net/wp-content/uploads/stilaholiday07.jpg
I was caught by surprise when I was doing my daily spy over my bloggeramas (blog butterflies) and reach my new found friend's blog, Shaz. Her post blew me off my seat haha so to speak. It was a really nice post about stila (my favorite cosmetic) and about how she needed the one last receipt to finally redeem her stila benefits from spending rm1,650 in 6 months! it's so crazy. I really pity her! how cruel is Stila to deny her of her benefits just because she lost one receipt? this girl has been a fan since ages ago! She regularly supports Stila and they don't recognize her last star because she don't have receipt to account for it. Hello? Mars to Earth. How on earth she got her last star then? freakin climb over your counters and steal your star sticker supply?

[Picture+920.jpg]
shaz posted my letter 2 her! omg

Anyway, I agree with her that the Stila Membership System is screwed. I have 3 stila membership cards and my beautician can't recognize me because I didn't go to their counter for 2 months. That just shows they see their customers by the $$$. I also notice that each time I do my makeover there, the beautician will leave me in the middle of it because some customers show up at their counter. They'll take their time "trying to sell" to the customers while I sit and wait for them. Woah? don't they have other sales assistant to do that? why must u always leave me 1/2 way during make up to attend to other people? What's more sad is I've spent so much there and they don't really want to give me samples/freebies and even a stila paper bag. I had to beg them for it and yet still end up either with nothing or spending more to get it. Bah Humbug.

Therefore I concluded that my favourite cosmetic is still my favourite. Just that the people under this brand is stingy, money minded people who cares more about earning commissions than their faithful customers who kept going back to them. I suppose they would throw the red carpet if Datins come to splurge at their counter and ignore you totally because..



"girl you don't spend enough here"


So Shaz, thank you for finding me. It's so magicially crazy that a beautiful person like you found me through searching for "stila". We've a few things in common but I'm no fashionista like you! U go girl! Do some make up tips so I can learn in your blog ok? I need serious makeover help.. my friends been trying to makeover me until they gave up. Guess I better go enter the Female Magazine's Butterfly Makeover challenge and see if that can turn me into a beautiful swan. OH and you should've told me you're going to snap my letter and post it up! I could've "zhing" the letter and make it sparkling out of your blog lol!!!

A-Z Whimsy "Box" Swap International



I'm going to send this out tomorrow or Monday to my swap partner in U.S. This is a A-Z Whimsy Jar swap. Unfortunately sending a jar would be too costly for me so the organizer said a box will do just fine. I had a tough time trying to put together this whimsy. It's also my first time and I can't say how many times I have change the contents of this swap. I've settle for something simpler and fun instead of throwing an entire scrapbook kit as a whimsy (my initial idea but after some thinking decided it was not the concept of whimsy). I'm still clueless and I better just send the package off to U.S before I change the contents again *lol*

Painted Skin Preview 24/09/08

I watched Painted Skin preview (directed by Gordan Chan) at GSC 1utama last Wed. I love how Zhou Xun portrays Xiao Wei, a fox spirit in human form who falls in love with Commander Wang Sheng (Chen Kun) and is determined to make him fall in love with her and become his wife. Unfortunaltey Commander Wang Sheng already has a wife, Pei Rong (Zhao Wei) and even worst, Xiao Wei needs a daily supply of human heart to remain in human form (thus u see many deaths suddenly when Commander Wang Sheng brings back Xiao Wei to his town to stay)

Zhao Wei a.k.a Pei Rong


donnie yen a.k.a depressed x-bf

Eventually jealous wife Pei Rong got suspicious of Xiao Wei and plea Pang Rong (Donnie Yen) who'se probably her ex-boyfriend to expose the demon fox's diguise. Pang Rong who obviously exiled himself because of Pei Rong, is still holding feelings for her and thus agree to help her out with the help of "demon buster "Xia Bing (Sun Li) <-- darn funny character. The movie is about L.O.V.E and not about monsters. So don't expect a horror movie here ok! To the weak hearted, you might cry like me as the story builds up to a halting tension of Zhao Wei switching places with the fox-demon in order to protect her useless husband. The funny antics of Donnie Yen & "ghost buster" will throw you off your chair. Strangely, I was also caught in by the fox-lady's charm as with all the men in the movie. She's really something.

I like my brother's wife


I have wet dreams

i think you're a demon fox..

I will snatch your husband

Bloggerzoiks?

9.22.2008

Today after watching Mamma Mia! organized by nuffnang, my boyfriend was in a hilariously funny mode to insult me and bloggers. Basically what happened what, after the show ended bloggers started clapping (and this was the second time that happpened, the first was Wall-E hosted by Adverlets) my boyfriend started laughing and saying "BLOGGERS!!! CEH BLOGGERSS!! U LA Bloggers!!!". Then we we were driving out of 1utama, we passby the bloggers again all in a pack outside the cinema exit. Most where taking pics, letting their pics being taken and chatting.

Now in my boyfriend's eyes there seem to be a new trend of people besides gamers, geeks, nerds etc. This new race is called "bloggerzoiks" by him. Why? well he observed the event and made some claims that Bloggerzoiks are weird people who likes to blog and that these bloggers are made up of:

1. the camwhores (particularly the girls that kept posing infront of the cameras repeatedly in different stances/pose/looks)

2. the photographerwhores (who snaps pics of camwhores & everything else even seats)

3. obsessive compulsive blogger a.k.a O C B

4. the ones that don't belong to the category above (yet to be determined by him but for now I'm in that category of unwanted, no life blogger)

He continue to say some blogging symptoms:

1. if they're away from the keyboard, you can see their palms sweat

2. if the internet was down, they're dead

3. if they don't see their counter go up they'll complain about why their counters don't go up

4. and if the counter don't go up, they'll cheat their way to counterized their site

5. must repeatedly check their blog at least once a day

6.if they see their counter go up, they'll still complain about it.

now at this point, I've already avenge for all of us bloggers alike by hitting repeatedly on his head to the point that he was driving like a drunk driver on steroids. Bloggerzoiks.. really?


Only 435 premises can charge 5% gov tax


Report restaurants still charging service tax

PUTRAJAYA: Some restaurants are still charging service tax to its customers although the number of outlets permitted to do so has dropped sharply from 4,800 to only 435 premises since the Government raised the sales threshold to RM3mil.

Customs director-general Datuk Seri Abdul Hamid Abdul Rahman said his department was aware of complaints by consumers. Customs officers have been making checks to ensure restaurant owners whose outlets did not meet the requirement would not charge their customers 5% service tax.

However, he said, not many people have come forward to make an official complaint on errant restaurant operators but they merely had gone to the press to air their displeasure.

“It is difficult for us to take appropriate action if we do not know the identity of the culprits. Therefore, we urge the public to come forward and provide us with information so we can act on it. My department is proactive and we do act on complaints but we need details,” he told reporters Wednesday after the launch of a seminar on Customs International Business Partnership by Deputy Finance Minister Datuk Kong Cho Ha.

Even the director-general himself was not spared from being charged service tax by a restaurant operator and Rahman said his men were in the midst of investigating the case.

He said the public could go into the department’s website to check the names of restaurants which still have the licence to charge service tax and lodge their complaints by e-mailing the department.

Effective July 1, only 435 restaurants nationwide have the licence to collect service tax. A total of 4,800 outlets had to surrender their licence as they were no longer eligible to make the collection following the Government’s decision to increase the sales threshold level from RM500,000 to RM3mil a year.

On another matter, Rahman said Customs estimates the collection of import duty from motor vehicles to be RM8.5bil this year, while duties for cigarettes and alcohol would also be more this year at RM2.9bil and RM1.35bil respectively.

He also said between January and August, the department had registered 3,133 cases of smuggling involving goods worth RM95mil and taxes valued at RM162mil.

“With the high-tech gadgets, equipment and increased surveillance work, we have managed to cripple many smuggling attempts and will continue to do so,” he said.

Pok Brothers Warehouse Sales

15 units for rm50

4 units rm10

rm2 each

himalaya rm10
good maids rm3-rm8


rm10 for 5 bottles
(drank 1 already lol)

Today manage to convinced my bf to go to Pok Brothers warehouse sales. My bf complained so much as we were traveling from Sri Hartamas to USJ. The traffic jam was really bad from SJMC onwards to Summit. He was cursing away at the sales & traffic throughout the journey. We spend almost 2 hours being stuck in traffic jam. When we reach the warehouse sales, there wasn't much selection and the brands featured were mostly unknown/not-so-popular brands. However I manage to buy some Goodmaid products (not bad very cheap few range from rm3-rm8), Himalaya shampoo rm10 for 400ml (rm5 for 200ml or buy 3 x 200ml = rm12), Pokka drinks 5 units rm10, Pringles one box rm50 (15units), Alif sauses in rendang, thai curry, sambal tumis etc rm2 each packaet, frozen food rm10 for 4 units (pizza at rm10 each, i didn't buy)

We found out they only accept CASH & we didn't bring enough cash -darn-. There were electronics, toys, house cleaning supplies, food and drinks there. I even saw condoms being sold but unknown brand again. Disappointed at the brands featured. Small tents, crowd is ok, friendly sales people but darn far from where I live so petrol was wasted for this sales. Not going again next time. I have price list from this sales but figure it's not that important.
