Short Talk:

Sorry. I owe you one. ;)

Free Pixart Photobooks To Giveaway!

It's difficult to narrow down the winners, but someone have to be eliminated and someone have to win. Congratulations to the following winners and enjoy your free Pixart Photobook!


Winnie Ting, Petaling Jaya: "Would you please help me to dig the itchy booger out? My hands are kinda oily. TQ."

David Martinez, Singapore: "The face that only a mother could love."

Felicity Kuek, Kuching: *Personal earwax cleaning in progress*


Every now and again, I get freebies from people in exchange for publicity on kennysia.com.

About this T-shirt.

I think it's a fair deal. You gimme a sample of your product, I tell everyone what I honestly think about your product, even if I hate it to the bone. That's marketing. Everyone knows there's no such thing as bad publicity and that a marketing manager's worst nightmare is nobody talking about their products.

These days kennysia.com gets around 10,000 readers everyday. It's a marketing gold mine waiting to be tapped, and I'm happy James see the potential in there.

But here's the sucky part: readers simply do not like bloggers who sing praises about a commercial product because they've received gifts or monies from the company. Apparently, blogging about commercial products nowadays is equivalent to heresy in the Dark Ages.

So after that last entry, some angry people e-mailed me as if they were ready to put me up on a burning stake screaming "YOU SOLD OUT! YOU SOLD OUT!"

Well, let me say I've never forgotten about you guys. True, I got a free photobook from Pixart as part of my review. But here's the catch. After talking to them, Pixart has also agreed to give away THREE Pixart Photobooks exclusively to kennysia.com readers!

See I told you I've never forgotten about you guys! ;)

So here's the deal.

First, you gotta install the Pixart Photostylist software (get it here or here).

Then fill out the form below.

And... yep, that's about it! (Make sure you read the contest rules and regulations below hor.)

I am so nice, sometimes I feel like Santa Claus. Ho ho ho.

Dear Santa Sia

How come there isn't a mac version for this software?? *pouts*


thank you, Kenny. i love you.


Please please let me win.. please.. I promised I'll be good..

*clasping my hand* *bambi eyes*


This Pixart thing is pretty cool, it's already pretty popular in other countries.


I see the question, I give up.... :(


hah...macam ini pun kena ke?

Okaylah, Kenny, you are officially the most "tak boleh" blogger in Malaysia, write about anything also kena.


Mac users, stop whining. iPhoto is super. For PC i'd prefer Picasa (http://picasa.google.com)

Kenny I don't mind the endorsements/advertising, but I think you need to be sensitive to judge when too much is too much. You put a lot of your time into your blog, you deserve to make some money out of it right?


you are brilliant Kenny!!


ANyone facing the same problem ? When u click Setup there's this prompt asking u to Repair or Remove Windows Journal Viewer ..


I think it's fair game too. It's your blog and you can say whatever you like as far as your opinion is concerned, including advertising. If people like, they read your blog. If not... whatever lah :P

Crap la, can't enter contest ~ In Korea!


U're cute.


I don't want to enter the contest - here is my captions though.

'And if you press this button here, I pull this face and sing and dance!' :-)

'So hard to pick my nose when I'm drunk ... woops, missed again!'

'The Doctor warned, amputating from here up can be a health hazard.'

'Now to demonstrate the touch of death ... argh, I forgot I was not supposed to use it on myself!'

'I need a wax fast, look how long my chest hair is getting!'

'Do I look blonde? Look at the colour of this hair! So, what sort of fish do they get chicken from again?'


not all 10000 readers will join lar..so join lo..who knows..you might win..just be nice to kenny..
