My Dream in the Year of the Tiger

This post is an official entry for the Nuffnang The Tiger Run competition.

Every runner has a dream marathon that he wants do before he dies retires from running.

Since Tiger Beer/ Nuffnang brought up the issue, I would like to officially announce that My Dream In The Year Of The Tiger is to run a Disney World Marathon Weekend!

OK! OK! The marathon will be in 6-9 Jan 2011, about a year from now. But, technically it is still in the Tiger Year. So, I might just catch the tiger by the tail!

FYI. Rabbit will officially takes over from Tiger only on Chinese New Year, Feb 3 in 2011. :)

So, what so great about this Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend? In final race of the weekend, I will get to complete the most magical 42.195km on Earth. For the uninitiated, 42.195km is the distance of a full marathon.

The course takes me through all four Walt Disney World® Theme Parks starting at Epcot®, continuing on to the Magic Kingdom® Park, Disney's Animal Kingdom® Theme Park and Disney's Hollywood Studios™ and then back to Epcot® for an exhilarating finish.

How cool is that?

I have been dreaming about Disneyland since I was a little kid. So, running a MARATHON in it would be a dream comes through!

This looks run, right?

Running the race with my favourite mice!

...and hi-five a Tigger! Hey! How auspicious is that in a Tiger Year? Feng Shui master, Lilian Too would approve of this! LOL!

Look at the Marathon finisher medal!

It's in the shape of Mickey Mouse! (Insert drool here!)

OMG! Look at the trophy!


OK. Better stop dreaming and start training now!

FYI, if I sign up for the Goofy's Race and a Half Challenge where I will run the Half Marathon on Saturday and then the Marathon on Sunday - there will be 3 medals waiting for me!

Mickey Mouse shaped for the Marathon (42km), Donald Duck for the half marathon (21km) and Goofy for completing both half marathon and marathon back to back!

So Tiger Beer, please make my dream in the Tiger Year come through and make me the Happiest Runner on the Happiest Place On Earth! (Insert roar here!)

Community Chinese New Year - Cultural Night For The Needy @ Sunway Pyramid

What? Community Chinese New Year - Cultural Night For The Needy

Where? Sunway Pyramid Shopping Mall

When? 28 Jan 2010

Why? Ang Pow and CNY Goodies for the underprivileged old folks and children.

It's a project by YB Loh Gwo-Burne (MP of Kelana Jaya). While I was passing the concourse area, I saw some people arranging the chairs for this event earlier in the morning. So, I returned at 6:00pm for some shots.

Here they are....

Gwo-Burne arrived quite early actually, I saw him having a cuppa Starbucks! LOL!

Too bad, Gwo-Burne sounded like a broken record when he apologized on behalf of other LATE VIPs for the event. Yeah! Yeah! Blame it on the traffic! If other people could be on time, why not them? :P

Yang Berbahagia Datuk Seri Dr. Wan Azizah Wan Ismail.

The show started after the speeches with a lion dance.

Followed by a lively CNY songs performance with Chinese musical instrument.

Then the show got HOTTER and got the crowd going....


Blind folded threesome.

Girls on harvest.

Please la. No...No...Don't so humsup la!

Chinese cabaret. Bare midriff. Sexy costume. Watch all the granpas' glasses steamed up! LOL!

Proudly displaying their "cockroach tummies and bee waists" - a compliment in Chinese, meaning they've got flat tummies and small waistlines. :)

Leo the Lion pretending to be Choy San (God of Prosperity)

Leo's a hit with the kids. :)

Group pic after the ang pows and CNY goodies have been distributed out to the old folks and kiddies.

One more for the camera.

Watch snippets of the performance and mass CNY Greeting to usher the Year of the Tiger!

Konsert Alibi Kosmik - Photos and Video Clips

What? Konsert Cosmic Alibi or Alibi Kosmik or whatever! Where? Wisma Bentley, Damansara Mutiara. When? 15 Jan 2010

Alibi Music is a new music label established under the Metadome Sdn Bhd's umbrella, along with Alibi TV and Alibi Pictures.

The concert was held to launch the new logo of the company and to introduce the 11 new artistes signed with Alibi Music.

I received a free ticket allocated for Dayang Nurfaizah's fans. On that Friday, Alyn, Judd, Ieta, Yazid, Tushee, Balay and many more DN fans turned up for the show. See how happy Dayang was to see us! LOL!

Muka-muka seposen. Waiting for the door to open. The show was scheduled at 8:00pm but at 8:45pm we were still not allowed to go in by the skinny bouncers at the doors! (Insert sigh here!)

At around 9:00pm, we were finally let in. The auditorium was packed to the brim and they got no seats left for us! Anyway, I managed to find myself a seat near the wall while the rest of my friends were "invited" to the front, sitting on the floor!

Here are some pictures to share. Hope you like them.

Wangi & Zizie of The Fabulous Cats.

Pow! Girl power!

The emcee of the night, Nana.

I feel that the introduction to the artistes could have been better, As I mentioned in my post earlier, there was no annoucement of the song titles to the audience. We could only see the names of the performing artistes on the screen. It would be great to announce the song writers as well. Just my own observations. :)

Anyway, the show was fantastic and fresh!

Liyana Jasmay with Aku Jatuh Cinta.

Dayang with Sayang. Hey, it rhymes!

Marsha - performed an acoustic intro of her song, Tak Perlu Selamanya with the keyboard before blasting in to the full blown song. Check out the video later!

Ezlynn rocking it out with the guys from Hujan.

Sleeq from Singapore. Very sleek indeed! Charmed the pants of the girls at the show! LOL!

Now you see him.....

Now you don't...Heheh! Nabil doing a halimunan (invisible) trick.

Dynda. All girls group from Singapore with their highly choreographed moves and harmonious vocals.

Did I mention, they are booty-licious too? LOL!

Blasting into the Stratosphere! Cinta Kosmik by The Fabulous Cats.

Papa Jahat! Heheh!

After the show we get to mingle and take photographs with the artistes!

Here are more photos.....It was impossible to post all artistes who performed in the show.

Awal Ashaari...I didn't have his photo on stage because I was recording it to video. He sang his debut single called, Memori.

The sweet Liyana Jasmay was seen dancing by herself in the auditorium when we approached her for photo.

Who is this? The guy from K.I.S.S?

Nope, this guy is from Hujan. LOL!

The girls from Alibi Music.

Group photo. Yeah!

Awal Ashaari, a Malaysian Idol reject is making a comeback in the music scene. He is quite established as an emcee and actor. But can he sing?

Or is he just a pretty face with a mouth that moves? You be the judge. :D

Note: Sorry about the bad visuals. My camera had problem focussing due to lighting issue. Or maybe Awal was too "good" at his singing and my camera couldn't take it! LOL!

The best performance of the night has to be Marsha (Sorry Dayang! LOL!).

She glided efforlessly up and down the octave range while she was playing the keyboard! What amazing vocals! Malaysia's Alicia Keys in the making???

I would love to hear more from the Sabah-born lass.

Her latest single is called Tak Perlu Selamanya. (Insert 2 thumbs up here!)

UPDATE: Sorry guys. The "copyright owner" Cydney Chang just had this video yanked off YouTube! 7 May 2010

We also like the launch of new single of The Fabulous Cats - Cinta Kosmik. It's a futuristic dance number which has a hint of Black Eyed Peas vibe with some Moloko thrown in. Catchy as hell!!!!
