  • FUWA! So Rock & Roll!

    I was very excited about the Beijing Olympics last week, 8 August 2008, starting at 8pm – especially when such cute friendly cuddlies are involved.

    And they look so POWERFUL!

    You’d have to agree with me if I say the FUWA is HOT! in comparison to some of the other mascots. Well, this is just my opinion…

    The Official Mascots of the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games

    The Whatizit, 1996 Atlanta – what is it?! Indeed!

    Neve and Gliz, 2006 Torino – One boy one girl? Huh?

    Magique – 1992 Albertville… Hmmmm…..

    Schuss – 1968 Grenoble… You gotta be kidding me!

    Some other yummy huggables that make me go AWWWWW…..

    Hodori – 1998 Seoul… Which kinda reminds me of Frosted Cornflakes…

    Cobi – 1992 Barcelona… I think he looks like a lawyer!

    And are you ready for more cuteness? Behold, Misha the bear, 1980 Moscow.

    I am a sucker for all things cute…

  • Arghhhhh!!! SEVEN POUNDS OF LARD!

    After 30, women lose about 5 pounds of muscle a decade, causing them to burn about 70 fewer calories a day — enough to add 7 pounds of fat a year.

    I can so confirm this! It’s a fact! And you don’t get to choose where the fat is deposited. Since I turned 30 – it’s all been heading for the ass.

    All SEVEN POUNDS OF FAT! IN TWO MONTHS!

    It feels like it’s been waiting for the past 30 years – and has decided to hit me – with all SEVEN POUNDS of it! IN ONE GO!

  • Generally, I’m not in to politics but I thought I’d share this…

    Badge

    I came across this today – and the rude-ness of this made me giggle a bit.

    These pins were actually being sold at the Republican State Convention.

    Ok, ok… I know it’s not THAT funny!

    What is funnier is that I am a DIM-WIT when it comes to anything political – but this made me giggle.

    And I am not racist!

  • 3 simple steps on how to deal with fuel price increase

    STEP ONE – I WILL HAVE TO GIVE UP STARBUCKS.

    Sigh…

    It’s not something that I really want to go into detail about, but since there is just SO MUCH TALK ABOUT OUR 40% INCREASE IN FUEL PRICE! I had to say something about it.

    STEP 2 – READ THE NEWSPAPERS DAILY. THERE ARE SOME GOOD AND SOUND ADVICE ON FIGHTING THIS PRICE INCREASE. PAY ATTENTION TO THE WORDS OF WISDOM AND COMFORT.

    “Make fewer trips to the mall, have fewer family outings on weekends and fewer holidays” – Datuk Shahrir Abdul Samad, The Sun front page, 6 June 2008.

    “Look at all avenues to reduce living costs, from using less electricity, having more meals at home and preparing a thorough financial plan” – Consumers Association of Penang (CAP) president S.M. Mohamed Idris, The Star, 8 June 2008.

    “Change your lifestyle to help reduce the impact of the rise in prices, exercise patience and prudence, Insya Allah this will enable us to tide over this problem and emerge more matured and resilient” – The Yang di-Pertuan Agong, The News Straits Times, 7 June 2008, Page 4.

    “Companies should encourage employees to car pool. We could perhaps allow only cars with number plates ending in odd numbers on certain days to be on the road” – Datuk Maznah Mazlan, Deputy Natural Resources and Environment Minister, The News Straits Times, 6 June 2008, Page 12.

    STEP 3 – COUNT YOUR BLESSINGS AND LOOK ON THE BRIGHT SIDE.

    You don’t have to sell cow poop cakes for cooking fuel like in India when their government hiked their gas prices – The News Straits Times, 9 June 2008, Page 6.

    The government is seeking to improve the public transportation system, and by 2010 the Kelana Jaya LRT line will have 22 new cars to ease congestion, and by 2011 there will be a line extension for Kelana Jaya and Ampang to Putra Heights. – The News Straits Times, 8 June 2008, Page 4.

    Our government is going to lead by example by not hosting lavish functions, cutting down costs on domestic and international travel, and reviewing excessive use of electricity in government complexes, Parliament and other large buildings. – The News Straits Times, 6 June 2008, Page 13.

    Last but not least – all you need is L.O.V.E.

  • Jennifer Aniston Hate Club

    I can’t believe I couldn’t find one online. Maybe I am just going about the search the wrong way. I key-ed in “i hate jennifer aniston”, “jeniffer aniston hate website”. And came up with nothing. But there is a “i hate angelina jolie club”.

    How dumb ass is that?

    I really don’t know why I don’t like her. I suppose HATE is a strong word to use. And I have not been brought up to HATE. My mum is a good mother – and did not teach me to hate. I write this in case she miraculously learns how to go online, and reads this. Of which she will then continue being the SUPER MUM she is and give me some money to spend.

    Back to Jennifer Aniston. I seriously think her claim to fame all started with the fact that she has gorgeous hair. Her hair is the picture millions of women take with to the hairdressers to say – I want hair just like that!

    BARF! BARF! Choke.

    But I do think she has great hair. And a hot body for someone her age.

    I am still so happy that Brad Pitt dumped her for Angelina Jolie.

    My sister tells me that evolutionary psychology will say that I really am a lot like her in reality, and probably have so much in common we’d be BFF’s if not for the fact that I see her as competition, hence my dislike for her!

    BARF! BARF! BARF!

    Then I thought – I am not going to spend anymore time searching for this Jennifer Aniston Hate Club. But if you do come across one – please share with me.

    If you would like to tell me otherwise why I should love her or give her a break since she’s almost 40 and has been dumped so many times since her divorce – please try to convince me.

    I am not being unkind nor hurtful. This is just my opinion.

    If you would like to add on to this post as to why you hate her too, you’re MOST WELCOME to do so.

    Oops… I forgot… I was not brought up to hate. I merely dislike.
