Short Talk:

Thanks to those who e-mailed me information on "Jenne". I decided to just let it go.

This is the last of my entries documenting events of my KL/Singapore trip. Back to more normal-length posts from now.

Sassy Xiaxue Poisons James Brown's Scarlet Feline

Sunday, 26th June.

2:00pm. Hotel 81 Chinatown.

When I parted with Scarlett Ting the night before, I promised I'd do lunch with Sassy Janice and her today. Its already 2pm and she still hadn't yet replied my SMS. Wait any longer and our lunch date is gonna turn into dinner.

I messaged 'Very Poisonous Lady' Apple Lim since I was supposed to meet her for coffee as well, but there was no reply either. Man, I never felt so neglected.

Still feeling giddy as I recounted the events of last night I ventured out of my hotel alone, wandering around aimlessly and ended up at Plaza Singapura.

3:45pm. Plaza Singapura.

I like heart-shaped latte art.

Phone call from Ting, finally. Believe it or not, that woman had only just woke up. You know you're a blog addict when you went home at 6am after meeting so many people from the blogosphere and the first thing you did was to update your blog.

By coincidence, paikia(bad boy)-loving Finicky Feline was in Plaza Singapura as well. We arranged to meet at Cafe Cartel, and she bought me a drink. Thanks, FF!

Her old-time friend GuoJun joined us a little later. He paid for his own drink. Poor bastard.

In case you were wondering. That's not FF's real face.

Something unusual happened while we were sitting there chilling out. A man approached us and placed a little pin attached to a card on our table. The card reads something like this: "I am deaf. I would appreciate it if you help me out by purchasing this badge, which costs SGD$5". I've seen people doing this in Kuching as well.

I had my suspicions because the man is obviously well-dressed and well-fed, probably more well-fed than I am. If it were to choose between giving him or the Kuching Shuffler money, I'd choose the latter without blinking twice. FF reckoned it was a con, but my lousy conscience got the better of me.

When the man returned, I handed him SGD$2 and asked him to keep the pin. FF looked at me quizically. I looked back at her grinning sheepishly. Was I conned?

We looked over our shoulders when we heard funky music blaring over the speakers. Apparently there's some cheerleading demonstration going on. FF, GJ and I ran over there like primary school children at the start of their lunch break.

Download cheerleading video: here or here.

I always thought male cheerleaders are kinda gay. Despite that fact, you gotta envy them because they can anyhow grab, fondle and touch those hot nubile little cheerleaders without landing themselves into hot water. So lucky. When I grow up I wanna be a cheerleader too.

5:00pm. Plaza Singapura.

FF and GJ left to watch some crappy movie. Scarlett Ting sent me a message blasting me for making her meet so many strangers. And Apple Lim just woke up.

"OH MY GOD! I slept like a pig!! Seventeen hours!"

Seventeen hours! Have you heard anyone who have slept for 17 hours?! Gee, what is it with Singaporeans and punctuality? ;) And I thought Xiaxue was being mean for making me so long for the answers to her IQ questions.

6:15pm. Bakerzin (or was it Baker's Inn?)

Scarlett Ting, Sassyjan and I finally had "lunch" at 6:15pm.

Joining us was "Chao Ah Lian" Apple Lim.

Apple's round necklace and ring intrigued me. She said she likes round things. I think that's probably the reason why she likes me.

Apple Lim is truly one of a kind. I'm not saying that because she once declared that she wanted to hug my hairy leg to sleep. I'm saying that because I've never seen a self-confessed Ah Lian blogger as good and as hilarious as she is. She's also in the Wheels Magazine Race Queen contest, so go vote for her.

There's this stereotypical misconception that models are usually stuck-up bimbotic airheads. Apple is the exact opposite.
20050705-17.jpg

Me giving you that grin that makes you wanna throw a punch to my face.

We talked only once on MSN. When I told her I was coming to Singapore, she was nice enough to offer her place (not her room lah, siao) for me to stay. I declined, fearing she'd secretly take photos of me in my red boxers and post it all over the Internet. She suggested Hotel 81 Chinatown, which is why I stayed there this time round.

Interesting fact: all the girls in this table are or were at some point involved with modelling / talent agencies.

I felt so left out. The only modelling experience I had was when I did my SarongPartyGirl pose.

Anyway, I'm surprised Apple Lim is so unpretentious, so incredibly down-to-earth, so likeable. It was the first time she met us all, but we seem to hit off pretty well. Scarlett Ting and Apple had a lot more in common than they think, and they were chatty throughout lunch dinner. Apple told us her interesting encounter with a fortune teller. I was amused she put so much faith in what a fortune teller told her.

I had agreed to meet James Seng and mr brown for dinner at 8pm, so I bade the girls farewell.

8:30pm. River Valley.

Finally. Some male bonding after all that female attention. Never thought I was ever gonna say this, but after a while, I kinda grew tired being surrounded by hot and pretty girls, especially when these girls belong to the can-see-but-cannot-touch category.

I had a long chit-chat with mr brown that night, and it was definitely the most enlightening moment throughout my whole trip in Singapore. No wonder they called him the ah kong (granddaddy) of Singaporean blogosphere. This man knows his shit. Right down to its colour, texture, and the number of undigested yellow kernels in it.

Pyramids of chicken rice. Beware of boobie traps.

We talked about the Singaporean blog culture, the upcoming Blogger's convention, the commercial aspect of blogging, among other things. One thing I realised from our conversation is how much more mature and serious the blog culture is in Singapore compared to the rest of Asia. Its evident from the facts. Mr brown, Miyagi are writing for Today; Wendy is writing for The New Paper, Maxim, endorsing LocalBrand; and most interestingly, commercial entities are APPROACHING the Bloggercon organizers for sponsorship, instead of the other way round.

All these are happening while Malaysian bloggers are still gloating over how they got their first cheques from Google Adsense.

James "Drupal" Seng, mrbrown, some Malaysian dude, and remote control specialist HC

I learnt so much from mr brown that night, and yet he still chia me eat chicken rice. What a nice man. Thanks mb, I appreciate it.

12:30am. Holland Village.

Decided to meet up with the princess again before I leave the country the following day.

I was buying FHM and Maxim (as I always do when I'm in Singapore) at Cold Storage when a makeup-less Wendy in pink platforms suddenly appeared and gave me the shock of my life that froze me. How appropriate was it then that I was in Cold Storage.

We adjourned to the nearest kopitiam, where she wowed and entertained me with her amazing blowing skills.






BUBBLE blowing skills lah. What were you thinking?

Quite a few people have asked me how Xiaxue is like in real life. I admire her for her willingness to share details of her private and personal life. I think in a way, she is very similar to the way she blogs - feisty, straightforward, sometimes mean, sometimes vindicative. But not mean to the point where she'll kick a stray dog off the road lah of course.

Kenny: "Eh why you cross the road like that? Not scared cars knock you down one is it?"

Wendy: "Never mind lah. Cars won't knock down 'mei nu' one."

Kenny: "..."

Still, it takes a lot of understanding to click with Wendy's sense of humour and not get offended.

People are so used to her being that snobbish vengeful bitch online its kinda difficult accepting her nice, angelic side. And she does have an angelic side. Its the subtle things she did that speak for itself. Like how she blew bubbles to make a little toddler girl smile, and later gave the whole tube for her to play with.
20050705-17.jpg

Somehow this picture looks very wrong. Its not what you think alright?

People usually don't notice things like these when she writes about it online, but it does bring a nice fuzzy feeling to my stomach.

Wendy and I chatted, joked, strolled till 5am in the morning.

In the process, we encountered one big ass spider.
20050705-17.jpg

Wendy tried to act chio by planting a flower on her head.
20050705-17.jpg

I tried to act chio, but failed.
20050705-17.jpg

Miserably.

5:15am. Hotel 81.

I returned to my hotel after exchanging goodbyes with Wendy.

I was about to enter the lobby, when out of a sudden I spotted two familiar faces scurrying towards the exit. It all happened within a few seconds, but I managed to whip out my digital camera in time to snap this scandalous picture.

mr brown and James Seng. Seen walking out of Hotel 81... TOGETHER!

Now we know exactly what the Tomorrow.sg editors meant when they say "We work together hard. Very hard."

Apparently, Malaysian bloggers who only have bad press media and gloat about mediocre USD100 Adsense earnings are inferior to Singaporean bloggers who get to write for real publications, get offered endorsements and get paid for it! Its evident from ... Read More

Xiaxue really that bad in real life meh? I guess some people are just like that... but it's hard to imagine that people like that can be liked by many.

n305er: Hello, he wrote about me in a good way okie!!

So anyway, I don't want people to thinK I am some kind-hearted, virtueous young lady. I AM NOT! I am every bit the mean, horrible monster I am on my blog!

I erm, actually gave the toddler girl the bubbles coz it was sticky and I don't want it to dirty my bag.

NAH! Just kidding! I am kind and benevolent! Hor, Kenny? (Say yes or I'll go to Kuching to strangle you)

Damn, its 6am, and I smell roti prata.

Unregistered

And I love the title, Hubby! So brilliant ah you!

Unregistered

Kenny, 26th June or July ???

hey! wah! seems u had a nice time in KL/Singapore leh... good fer ya!

Unregistered

Bubbles are supposed to be soap-y... Why was it sticky? Hmm...

Unregistered

I love the last picture. Scandalous!

Unregistered

"All these are happening while Malaysian bloggers are still gloating over how they got their first cheques from Google Adsense."

I agree with you there, Kenny

ps: I love Xiaxue too!!! :D

Unregistered

The pleasure was mine, K. How often does one get to take out a femes Singaporean blogger from Kuching for dinner?

James and I wanted to check out the clean linens that Hotel 81 is so femes for. Really.

:)

Unregistered

Wah piang eh. You and Xiaxue really good together loh.

*runs*

Unregistered

ermm....Sticky....it does makes one wonder where the tube had been.....given it's form and that pack of tissue........and seeing the fact that there are bubbles inside the tube which should not be the case unless shaken.......hmm........kinky!!!

Unregistered

Make sure you meet up with Cheeky and Bubblemunche the next time you drop by Singapore. I really want to see a threesome between the 3 funniest bloggers......

Unregistered

heehee! did ya c that clip? poor cheerleader...opps! dropped! sigh..

Unregistered

xialanxue, in case you're wondering: -
1. my gf requested that I not write anything about her on my blog.
2. she reads me.
3. i was merely documenting my experiences in Singapore.

There's nothing to speculate about, really.

Unregistered

Hmm...I really envy you. Seems like being a blogger do pay more than just money (read: Xiaxue)

I bet you would never imagine that a guy like you would ever be the centre of attention of so many fk-able babe. Did you have wild sex with any of them? Did xx show you her prowess in blowing? How many condoms did you eventually had to use? Or you din use any?

Unregistered

me slept 18 hours before! *haha*

nice! *yum!*

Unregistered

Wah reminds me of Singapore :( Hey,anything happening back home in Kuching? Now that ST is no longer online cant get Kuching/Sarawak news leh....can update me via email? Thanks.

Unregistered

LOL.. that last pic is a gem.. you can use it to threaten grandfather brown.. Btw, that chicken rice pic looks yummy.. I'm a singaporean but i dont know where that place is.. haha

Unregistered

C'mon, Kenny—get with a winner: QuickTime. WMP is so last century.

Anyway, I didn't hear any cheering.

Unregistered

I know where...in singapore....only Boon Tiong Ji....or Wen Tong Ji sells Pyramid shaped rice mounds with white Chicken. from the place he was, looks like river valley branch.....

Unregistered

Is it Boon Tong Kee? I don't think so. If I'm not wrong, it's a different group of people selling it. Anyway, I really like the last picture! Goodness, we've Mr. Brown and Mr. Seng walking out of Hotel 81 at that kinda timing. Bad Brown and Bad Seng!!!

Kenny, Kenny, Kenny....

I'm all jealous.

First, you flirted oh so publicly and repeatedly with XX. Then, you arrived in SG and conveniently forgot to *ah-hem* inform your most loyal groupie (me), and now, you've even put in a kind word to syntaxfree even though I'm going thru the same agony waiting for my ultrasound results.

I'm so utterly crashed....


Miserably,
Linda

Scandalous, that last picture!

By the way Kenny, the bandwith for cheerleader videos have ran out. Uh, don't look at me like that...

Unregistered

kenny, i don't like you very much now. we have different ways of making money. if blogging about nonsense gains me endorsements, i wouldn't feel very proud about it.

Unregistered

the last picture had me choking on my cream crackers......

Unregistered

Aren't Hotel 81 rooms rented out by the hour?

Unregistered

i guess some things in life are not meant to be compared. i believe comparing bloggers from differing countries is one of them. same goes for the return on investment(roi)from blogging too. and i think 'gloating' is not the right word lah Kenny. maybe 'appreciating'? coz not everyone blogs for cash.

Unregistered

I kept laughing throughout the post...

...because I kept remembering minishorts' post whenever I saw your face! 8-D

Curtis G, heh. It was actually converted to WMV from MOV files. Most ppl seem to be able to play WMV files.

Linda Chia, so sorry to hear about your experiences. :( Is there anything I can do to make it up to you?

NSDS3, so tell me how many time you downloaded the videos?!

PaulTan, thank you ha... this all turn into big ruckus already. Heh heh heh.

hankyo, poor cream crackers.

Janet, Geylang isn't the only branch where they operate you know.

Din, I'm sure most ppl don't blog for cash exclusively. But when the opportunity arise, won't you take it?

desperate addict, fu qi xiang?! FF is gonna kill you (and me) for that.

eyeris, different bah. There's a lot of trained professional writers that blog (minishorts, niki cheong, jennemeade), but pardon my ignorance because I don't know much about untrained writers that were approached and recruited purely because of their blogs. Other than HB. But he rejected.

kidchan, i'm still a normal guy leh. :D

GJ, done!

Ting, !!! oh my. wrong choice of words again?

hellokitty, dun siao lah.
