Short Talk:

Is my blog taking a long time to load? It seems perfectly fine on my side of things.

Today, kennysia.com Turns One

It's kennysia.com's 1 year old birthday!

Not like anyone should care, really. ;) But it's my birthday and I can cry I want to.

I registered "kennysia.com" on the 1st January 2005 and initally it was hosted on the cheap $3.95 per month peoplehost.com servers, running content management system Movabletype as its backbone. Soon afterwards, tag-board (Chatterbox) was installed, adding much life and interactivity on the website.

By April 2005, after experiencing one too many downtimes and bandwidth overshots, it became clear that kennysia.com has outgrown it's old host and I made the much delayed decision to migrate to the very reliable Site5 servers which I faithfully stayed with until today. By November 2005, plagued once again by extreme bandwidth overshots on kennysia.com, I launched supercoconuts.com as a sister site to host huge bandwidth-eating audio and video files, and hopefully putting an end to my server nightmares.

The decision to start kennysia.com was made on an impulse and never had I imagined that it would become as popular as it is today. Throughout it's existence I have made a lot of wrong decisions and, whether intentionally or unintentionally, made a few enemies and offended many people in the process. However, these are nothing compared to the many fruitful friendships I've established across Kuching, KL and Singapore as a result of my blog. That, in itself, is a priceless gift that no one can take away from me.

What is your favourite KFC kennysia.com moment?

For me, the following entries represent the best (and worst) of kennysia.com in 2005.


Top 4 Most Impactful Entries of 2005

April 01, 2005 -April Fool's: Making Fun of Myself

Introducing Kimberlycun, owner of Malaysia's smoothest pair of legs, and coincidentally the author of that fantastic blog with a fantastic title, "Narcissism Is Necessary".

Introducing... my legs.

I wrote this entry shortly after I joined Project Petaling Street and became fascinated by the popularity of some bloggers. kennysia.com was relatively unknown back then.

A lot of people hailed this entry its turning point (for better or worse). It's kinda hard to argue with the facts. The hit counters shot from mere hundreds to thousands after Dr Liew and Mr Miyagi linked to me. This started a snowball effect that lasted several months.

Kinda amazing when you think I was just acting very stupid in that entry.


May 24, 2005 - XiaXue And I Are Getting Married!

Meet our future daughter, Wenny Sia.

20050524-6.jpg

Of the five bloggers I parodied in the April's Fool entry, The Hustler Diaries became defunct, HB ended up becoming my occasional drinking buddy, Kimberlycun and I fell out for some absurd reasons, Jeff Ooi and I found new respect for each other, and Xiaxue proposed to me (fake one lah).

Another stupid entry, but when I think about it, I think this exchange kinda marks the start of some tight Malaysia-Singapore "cross-blogospherical" interactions.


June 14, 2005 - Datuknametoolongitis

How bad can this get? I thought those were the worst, I have no idea.

Until I came face to face... with The Mother of All Long Roundabout Names.

kch

DOUBLE the "Datuk", DOUBLE the "Abang Haji", DOUBLE THE OOMPH!!!

The popularity of this entry on Kuching's notoriously long road names is quite unexpected. I was merely writing about the culture shock I experienced when I returned home. A few weeks later, I heard rumours of it being circulated via forwarded e-mails, all the way to the desks of StarMetro in KL and The New Paper in Singapore.

6 months later, StarMetro contacted me and I agreed to let them publish the entry (for an agreed fee of course). Coincidentally, the nephew of one of the Datuks "featured" felt insulted, flew in a rage and wrote a scathing message against me in the notorious-for-flames Sarawaktalk forum. Ouch. When I wrote it, who would've thought something like this could've happened eh?


August 03, 2005 - Kenny Sia Replies To Furong Jiejie

The worst thing is, Furong Jiejie wants ME to print out this picture and hang it over my bed tonight.

...

Excuse me while I vomit my dinner out.

Ugh.

I don't know what to say.

Thank you Furong Jiejie for your "sexy picture".

But I'd rather hang this picture over my bed tonight instead.

Ericka told me someone at her workplace liked this entry so much, he bloody printed out THAT Furong Jiejie photo and put up on his partition wall. That freak!

Top 4 Most Offensive Entries of 2005

I'm no angel and I don't profess myself to be one. I want this blog to be the most honest thing I have ever done in my entire life. Sometimes I'm brash, sometimes I'm careless, sometimes I hurt people's feelings.

Two things usually happen from then on. If I realise I did something wrong, I WILL retract my comment and I WILL sincerely apologise. I've done it before. It's not that hard.

BUT. If I think people are being unreasonable, I will stand by my stance and people are simply gonna have to accept that that's the way I am. Call me stubborn, call me egotistical. At least I'm HONEST. And don't give me that "As Malaysia's top blogger you must do this and that" bullshit. I take none of that crap.


July 19, 2005 - The Siarong Party Girl Controversy
A disgusting and shameful act or a naughty but hedonistic fun? No one got hurt right?


September 27, 2005 - kennysia.com In The Media And My So-Called "Fame"
Yea, I went too far that time.


November 12, 2005 - Singapore Very Safe One

This one I was being careless. Sorry.


December 20, 2005 - "Merry Christmas" Is Another Way Of Saying Screw You
Everyone ignored the rest of that entry because of that ONE sentence that I wrote. *groan*

*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

Top 4 Entries I Used To Be Able To Write, But Not Anymore

What initially started out as a website to share my thoughts and interests with a few of mine like-minded friends (thanks Kim and Irene), kennysia.com eventually grew into an audience that includes not only my group of friends, but long-lost friends, families, strangers, cousins, uncles, ex-crushes, ex-colleagues, current colleages, business associates, my ex-boss, former highschool teachers, magazine editors, newspaper editors, the police, the Home Ministry, politicians, government officials, etc.

The reactions people who knew me in real life have when they first discover my blog was usually one of surprise and disappointment. They're upset that they believe I'd tainted my image with what I write on my blog. I admit, I think it's pretty difficult for them to swallow the fact that Kenny, who's usually pretty quiet and decent in real life, would touch on the topics I did on my blog. Forgive me people, just because I don't talk about these topics in real life doesn't mean I don't think about them.

Regardless, I've already toned down A LOT of my act and chances are, you won't see topics like these anymore. It's unfortunate but it has to be done. Here are top 4 of my favourite entries that I enjoyed writing, but can no longer do so because of "the image" I had to protect.


January 08, 2005 - United Colors of Benetton Condoms

UCB Condom on rack

Ever seen a designer-brand condom?


February 17, 2005 - Ansell vibe4u Vibrating Condom Review

Ansell vibe4u Vibrating Condom - Front

Whose kind of sick idea was this?


April 19, 2005 - The Hustlergate Scandal

Faye

One of the biggest controversies to rock the Malaysian blogosphere last year, which resulted in the downward spiral and the eventual blogicide of one of our erotic bloggers.


June 13, 2005 - The Sarong Party Girl Controversy
One of the biggest controversies to rock the Singaporean blogosphere last year, which resulted in the rapid ascension to fame and the eventual fortune of one of their erotic bloggers.

Top 4 Emo Posts of 2005

Because I am human and I have feelings too.

May 05, 2005 - The Last 25 Hours

Coffee

I wrote this because I want to forever remember how I felt during that day.

May 07, 2005 - Four Days and a Funeral
I hit the absolute lowest point in my entire life.

August 20, 2005 - I Want To Go Back To Perth

Wondering if I have made the right decision.

September 23, 2005 - Ayam That Guy
A meme turned emotional.

Top 4 Hate Comments of 2005

Hate comments and blogs are made for each other. In fact, I don't think anyone should start a blog if they cannot be prepared to handle hate comments.

Over the past one year, I've received so many hate comments that honestly, I'm pretty much immune to it already. I can't change people say about me but I can change the way I react to it. Besides, these days people just nitpick at every single thing they can. Here are the 4 most absurd hate comments I've received.

"You're one of those with self-given Christian names I see. Pathetic."
~ bodco, in Kuching Parking 101, who thought it's pathetic that my parent-given name 'Kenny' wasn't printed on my driver's license.


8 months old

"Fuck you lah Kenny,

She is just a little baby and you have to do this to her just so that you can satisfy your egoistic and selfish to attract more readers??? Ever thought about how she would feel when she's older? How would you feel if your uncle or somebody had taken a picture of you when you were a baby showing your ku ku to the rest of the world so that he can juice up his personal website? "


~ Nick, in Pinku, who thinks a baby's innocent middle finger is the equivalent of the male penis.


"His act really sia soi bloggers from Sarawak. I got to voice this out as no one would like to talk about KennySia bad stuff or else kenak shoot by him till very the bad. This is true wad. Is he consider as a part of Malaysia Blogosphere ? From my opinion, NO. He is somoene who likes to "hu" the balls and the papaya of the Singaporean famous bloggers."
~ "kcyap" Justin Yap, in his blog, a fellow Kuchingnite not too happy about my association with bloggers from Singapore.


"OMG.. i don't comment generally.. but my first thoughts are the video of the CHILD going down the water slide.. is that a bit paedophilic or what?! Please take it off it's disturbing.. point made :-)"
~ Veus, in When A Good Layout Isn't Exactly Important, who called me paedophile when all I did was showing animations of little girls in one-piece bathers going down the waterslide.

Funny how in that same entry I had the music video of Crazy Frog with his exposed dick playing, and yet she didn't accuse me of being a perverted crazy gay frog assbanger.

*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

For what it's worth, the journey has been wild but fun, and I can only thank you guys for joining in for the ride. Thanks for the support. As corny as it sounds, without you the readers, kennysia.com will be nothing but empty words.

Here's to a fantastic year it was and a great year ahead of us. Cheers!

I'm new to your site Kenny but am now a big fan since the day I discovered your blog about Kuching Food Festival or whatever you called it. Love ya blunt honesty which is rare in this society full of hypocrites. Ignore those sourgrapes. You are what you are and I am sure a lot of ppl love you for it, and I, for one, am very proud of ya, my dear fellow Kuchingnite, for being bloody outspoken. Perhaps we can 'plan' a chance meetup when I'm back to Kuching in Jan???

Unregistered

Hi Kenny,
I may not agree on what you write about sometimes (but of course you wouldnt care) , but still I have lots of fun reading it!

Too bad you had now gone past the "controversy" post, (the one you are unable to post anymore) . Anyhow... keep us entertain... and keep your chin up!

Unregistered

Happy Birthday Kenny!

Unregistered

Happy birthday to your blog! I've always loved your writings. Most of the time, you pretty much hit the nail on the head, and the datuklonglongroadnames post WAS the truth anyway. But I guess someone will always have something to say about everything about somebody.

You seem like a pretty decent guy in your posts too. Keep on writing what you write, and at least you're one year wiser on blogolitics too. Happy blogging!

P/S Would you be game for an actual Kuching blogger's meet before I go back to Perth? KCyap said he'd organise it, but he hasn't gotten down to it, so I'm trying to set the ball in motion. If anyone from Kuching besides my friends and I are game.

Happy Birthday Kennysia.com!

See quote: It's not easy being green

It’s not that easy bein’ green;
Having to spend each day the color of the leaves.
When I think it could be nicer being red, or yellow or gold,
Or something much more colorful like that.

It’s not easy bein’ green.
It seems you blend in with so many other ordinary things.
And people tend to pass you over
‘Cause you’re not standing out like flashy sparkles in the water
Or stars in the sky.

But green’s the color of Spring.
And green can be cool and friendly-like.
And green can be big like an ocean,
Or important like a mountain,
Or tall like a tree.

When green is all there is to be
It could make you wonder why,
But why wonder why? Wonder,
I am green and it’ll do fine, it’s beautiful!
And I think it’s what I want to be.

-Kermit the frog-

So it's not easy being green, but you are who you are. Keep up the good job of entertaining us! Muahaha.

Unregistered

HAHA well kenny, these ppl "eat full to free", come to your blog and critisize at the things you write. being so anal for what? who died and made them blog experts?

one thing that i really like about your blog is that you aren't afraid to show your true self - cracking lame jokes and not afraid to show your sense-of-humour! i think that's what's needed to make a blog fun to read! :)

Thanks for a great year Kenny.
Great writing and lots of fun being shared.

Again , dont let those sourgrapes and the 'so so high but low as dirt' people scare u out of your passion of writing. If they do send u threats.. u can blog it too and there will be thousands of witness. (maybe u can put a disclaimer , enter on your own discretion and no offense should be taken should they choose to enter/read)

Keep the good work up.. i think Malaysia became more well known especially Kuching due to your blog. The tourism of Kuching should thank you and pay u for your efforts.. Now the Kuching 'roundabout' may become tourist spots as grand as Petronas Twin Towers.. courtesy of Kennysia.com

I only started reading your blog recently, and this entry gives me a great chance to see you at your best and "worst" (because to me, the only 'worst' there is to a person is when other people are threatened and defensive - and only want to tear you down). You are you, and it's refreshing to read something genuine for once, rather than the usual 'poser' or 'try-hard' one can come upon in the blogging world.

I just read your Perth entry and though I was in Australia for a much shorter period, and in a relationship for shorter than 4 years, I can relate to that entire entry. I came back to Malaysia, not only because I couldn't afford to stay, but also to be with my family. I'm torn between feeling at home in Australia and Malaysia, I lost my father October last year, and I'm in a perpetual long-distance relationship; my being a Malaysian citizen and my partner being Australian.

To know that there is someone who understands that confusion and pain makes me feel better, not because you are hurting (or were?), but because I'm not alone (because people who think they relate, are merely apart from their gfs/bfs for a few months, so they could never understand the pain of that uncertainty of the future).

I don't mean to trivialise your pain and take it as my own, or that it's the same as mine. I hope you don't take offence to what I said, it's just that your entry moved me. I visited Perth while I was in Australia and although it was only 11 days, it was one of the few best times in my life. I'm not saying that I feel what you feel, but I honestly believe I understand and relate to it.

I just had to ramble. My apologies if I overstepped my bounds. Happy 1st Birthday to kennysia.com ... and take care :)

All that and it's only your first year! 2006 is going to be mofo. My vote for post of the year goes to Furong Jiejie. She may be woman, but she's got balls to be prancing around like that.

I must say the contents have changed considerably since and so are your newly acquired readers. Sometimes I do wonder if they have now becoming your targeted audience. I can’t imagine how tough it is to truly write your own mind and yet with audiences in mind.

Alf + Cynical Idealist, drop me an e-mail and I'll see what we can arrange. I'm always looking for an excuse to get out of the house. ;)

Pope, I've noted that you've stopped leaving comments as well, which sucks because I've always enjoyed reading your comments. I cannot write the way I used to anymore. I do think of the audience when I write nowadays, partially because the audience now includes many people who are connected and close to me. What I write may not affect me, but it may affect them. It's a fine act I need to balance.

Dabido, no I haven't got anything but spam. :( Want some v|aGra? Maybe I could interest you in some debt consolidation service.

ahlian, I think you're a little too anal about my attitude towards xiaxue. Despite me poking fun at her online sometimes, I still love her to death. Friends who understand each other do it that way.

LHM, nice to have met up with you in KL. I got a few other time-sensitive things to post up before I get to yours. :) Please be patient.

"You're one of those with self-given Christian names I see. Pathetic."

~ bodco, in Kuching Parking 101, who thought it's pathetic that my parent-given name 'Kenny' wasn't printed on my driver's license.

If bodco was more educated, he would realise how Kenny isn't necessarily a Christian name. It's a European name. It just so happens a lot of Europeans are Christians.

It's like how E.W. Said the philosopher was a Christian. "Said" is an Arab name, not a Muslim name and there are many Arabs who are Christians, Jews, Buddhists, Taoists and Hindhus.

sort of like how muslim converts here like to change their names when they don't have to. names like "yusof", "hassan" and "karim" are not necessarily muslim names.

heck im a muslim and my name's kris because it's by origin a greek name, not necesarily a christian name so it's not unislamic to keep it.

man when i get married I'm gonna give one of my kids a Chinese name.

Unregistered

heck i might call him "Tze Foo". sounds like a muslim name to me.

wow! I didn't realise my entry was such a big deal. My apologies for unintentionally insulting you. It was honestly was meant to be light-hearted comment. Oh well, you've survived a year. Happy Birthday.

Unregistered

yeap, it's taking quite some time to load.. =) nice entry!

Unregistered

Here's to you and your coconuts Kenny. Keep on blogging. Am living vicariously through you :D

Hey! I thought 'Singapore Very Safe One' was a very good entry! It was so funny, esp the last picture that I laughed out very loudly in my otherwise quiet office and had some of my colls running to my desk and asked me what is it about...

Anyway, detractors will always be there. So do people who worship you. Just ignore your detractors conveniently and lap up the admiration your worshippers shower on you!

Hope you have a good 2006!

thanks for mentioning me.. hope this year will be a good one and hopefully your crtics will just bugger off ay

you know what's pathetic? when sad asses like bodco can't even tell the difference between a christian name and an english name. christian names are names you find in the bible and kenny, sorry to dissapoint you but no we don't have any kennys!

as for the picture of the little girl on the slide. i read that entry a couple of months back when i was digging your archives and not once did I find it a little paedophilic. well then 'pointmade :-)'

HAPPY BURFFDAY! kennysia.com

KCYAP should be crucified. And I think you men-per-siasui-kan sarawakian bloggers even more with your cinapiang yingrish.

Unregistered

Hmm... I'm kinda late commenting on this post. Haha.. Sorry, but better late than never.

Happy Birthday Kennysia.com!! I think I started reading your site in February. And I commented in the vibrating condom post. Haha... I still love reading your posts so keep up the good work Kenny.

Unregistered

Haha... I got hooked on Kennysia.com ever since the "Singapore Very Safe One" post. Can still remember how I laughed my ass off. Started reading all your archives and visited the site to read new posts since then. Keep up the good work, Kenny!

Happy belated birthday to kennysia.com.

heh. things change. thanks for the mention here. sometimes fame has its price to pay. and you find yourself practising self-censure. and somehow, an online diary becomes an online mag for the entertainment of the masses.

Unregistered

kenny! you rock! no doubt about it. all the best! I think you're really different and stylish in some way!

Unregistered

Happy Anniversary Kenny!
