Short Talk:

Blog Plug of the Day: David Wang runs a Mac-enthusiast site called MyMacBuzz, and he had an interview with me about my iPod right here.

Kenny Sia +10

This is not a paid advertorial.

I got a package sent to me by courier earlier today. If it's sent to me by courier, I'm guessing it's gotta be something important.

Check out who it's from.

adidas Malaysia!

Can you believe it? Apparently my "Teamgeist ball looking like sanitary pads" entry found it's way via inboxes all the way to adidas' regional office and it landed on the desk of Anna-Rina from their communications department.

In return for me making fun at their product, they've decided to send me a pack of gifts as reward. I don't quite understand the logic behind it either but hey, I got freebies! That's all that matters.

How come Osim never gimme anything when I poked fun at their uZap? Stingy bastards. :P

Here's what's inside the package.

First up, a football jersey.

But too bad it's a little too small for me to wear. Gotta shed a helluva of weight before I could fit into this one.

I like the pen and holder they gave. There's a tiny hole in the centre of gravity of the pen and you're supposed to use that balance the pen horizontally on the pyramid shaped holder. It's pretty cool. I'm planning to put it on my office desk to make all my workmates jealous.

There's this T-shirt with the adidas tagline emblazoned on the back.

"Impossible Is Nothing"

Yea yea, impossible is nothing alright, except when the bloody referee awarded the penalty kick against Australia with only 40 seconds left on the clock. WTF!

Blah! Don't talk to me about that match. I'm still damn tulan about it.

Then there's this elegantly compiled mini-folder detailing adidas' involvement in the FIFA World Cup for the past 30 odd years, in full colour glossy photos. It even come with a CD containing high-resolution snapshots of their products. I presume this was what's given out to the press worldwide for their coverage into the World Cup.

I got the left overs.

Kaka! Kaka lai!

Finally there's the adidas Football Lookbook contains pretty much the same thing, except it's hard-covered and comes with this cute keychain of a pair of football shoes.

Too small for me.

Doubt I could find any use for it, but at least I can now play World Cup with my fingers.

It's never too early to train for World Finger Cup 2010

Overall, great football memorabilia from a company with a good sense of humour. :) And I certainly appreciate that. Thanks!

Sorry Kenny, Australia really deserved to win that match. I go kill that referee for u. I also very tu lan

Unregistered

Damn ! How can someone get rewarded for throwing insults ?

Tak aci betul la !

I shall try this on some property company someday . Who knows if I'll get a brand new semi-d in return ( Or a defamation charge ) .

Unregistered

Wow lucky you!

I'm devastated >

But it's really cool that Adidas appreciated ur sense of humour and sent u all these goodies.. .must have been a happy day for you!

Unregistered

For some reason some part of my comment is gone...

I was so going to trash those italians on lygon street and I swear I'll boycott Italian food for a month! (it's a lot to ask from me ok? I live next to lygon st)

But seriously tho, that WASN'T A PENALTY~!

Socceroos played exceptionally well this world cup, we should be proud of them! Hopefully see them at asian cup!

Unregistered

Mwhahahahaha your fingers are so cuteee Kenny!!! *hug your fingers* XD

Unregistered

Unregistered

LOL. tmw got parcel from kotex i think.

Unregistered

omg i so envy of u..i so like the freebies!!!

Unregistered

Gosh, you almost caused me a heart attack when I thought they gave you that RM500+ yellow boot. Phew! You're just one lucky bastard! :p

Unregistered

After reading your entry, everytime I tune in to watch the world cup playing, I will remember your super-imaginative view of the football. Darn funny though...hehehe

Unregistered

The jersey and fingers-in-shoes pose is so childish! Lol!

Unregistered

others make fun of their ball b4 you but u get freebies...damn lucky =)

Unregistered

Shudn't Reebok or Nike be giving u freebies instead of Adidas?..xD

Unregistered

Adidas did find u talented with unpaid advertorial. They expect u to blog about them again. mayb that's y they sent u all those freebies. ermm...i like that keychain the pair of football shoes. It would be great, if they really send u that kind of real footbal shoes huh.

Unregistered

Unregistered

So nice of them to "Yi De Pao Yuan" (以德报怨)

Bah, you know liao la, next time whatever you want but no money to buy, just blog it. ^(oo)^

Unregistered

WOW.. SO GOOD!!!

Jealous.. Hehe..

Unregistered

damnit...i want one too!!!

Unregistered

I wonder if adidas will give me something if I copy and paste your sanitary-pad-ball post on my blog.

Registered

Unregistered

i wonder if rojaks got some freebies as well!

Unregistered

i cant believe adidas gave you those cute stuff cos you poked fun at their ex ex ex ball.
so unfair. why dont i get freebies when i blog?
haha. ok, my calibre is not yet up to yours... okok, i get it...
but still, thats real nice of adidas. =(

Unregistered

Not all bloggers will get stuff from major corporations by talking about their products/services. Only the more popular ones like Kenny will =)

Unregistered

So sweet of them and you deserve it :)

Unregistered

WHAT?!?! you make fun of them and they gave you freebies?! if i make fun of Microsoft, will they give me the Vista and the latest office pack? you are such a lucky bastard...

Unregistered

Online Blogging can be fun, exciting and surprising but it can be as deadly as well. X-D
Nice adidas gift and blog.

Unregistered

Don't forget

LG gave him the Chocolate phone as well too

.....

Unregistered

Kenny, i actually recieved your 'teamgeist' post in my inbox yesterday.

Proves that Adidas has a sense of humour ;) at least they didn't send a lawsuit. I heard Osim are gonna send you the IGallop. That would be funny hehe.

Unregistered

heheheh...good for ya kenny...the freebies must had brighten up ur day! dun forget to blog abt ur kotex freebies if any!

btw, how did the adidas ppl knw of ur mailing address eh??

Unregistered

Dem lucky guy!

Unregistered

i guess from a marketing pov, its a worthy investment for quite a number of items they sent u for nationwide publicity.

they r anticipating jumps on their mini-t's and key chain sales soon =)

adidas ppl r brilliant..

Unregistered

Sweet balls of fire. Those are some magic pantyliners.

Unregistered

that's what u call world-class PR, i tell u! it's not like they're losing anything by sending u those stuff. those ppl at adidas r really smart.

Unregistered

40 seconds? More like 10 seconds.

Unregistered

congrats to u lucky blogger, for havin to be used by adidas for such a great deal.

Unregistered

hahah i like this one..
yeah, osim is not sporting at all!

Unregistered

i thought they gonna gift you the football when i saw the package picture, as it was way too expensive for you.

Unregistered

adidas have free publicity... courtesy of kennysia.com...

Unregistered

Adidas certainly has a great sense of humour! Unlike Osim :D:D:D

Unregistered

Hey Kenny,

Do you listen to Hitz FM??? I heard from the radio that they are searching for dunno what angel to become Osim's UZap ambassador... Why don't you go try out??? Hahaha I'm sure you'll at least be in the final...

Regards,
penny

Unregistered

Hey man... if ya wanna auction off the kaka book lemme know...i collect all kaka items i can get hold of! hehehe...

hmm. you think if i slam nokia they'll send me a phone?

Unregistered

Nice. Sure puts Osim to shame! LOL

And that's why I always support Adidas :)

Unregistered

*sometimes life just pissed me off...

Unregistered

Unregistered

Unregistered

I was all choked-up with laughter when I saw that final pic!!!

~TheAngel~
@ My Life Story

Unregistered

Wow! The marketing people down there at the Adidas HQ are good. Considering that you have an average of more than 11,000 visitors per day, it well worth it. Yeah I took a look at your stats.

Unregistered

WAHAHAH!! That last pic is hilarious!!!

Ur hand looks sooo cute!!

Unregistered

eh unfair i also wan!

Unregistered

Wah knn... I shall now go hurl insults and poke fun at Nike so that I shall get free merchandise instead of purchasing stuff from them all the time.

Unregistered

Walauyeh, like tat oso can aaa.. Shud try with DUREX.. who knows...

Unregistered

Geez, you're pretty lucky kenny... =)

Unregistered

Unregistered

Unregistered

Unregistered

Unregistered

Unregistered

I'm so jealous of you... Lolz.
Blogging sure makes freebies looking for you.

Unregistered

And I realise what's wrong with the last picture..
The guy isn't wearing any pants LOL.

Unregistered

SOO CUTEEE

Unregistered

Sheeshhhhh lucky guy! And that was cool of them. ;)

Unregistered

weeeeeeeeeeeee

Unregistered

erm, 1 qn though. How did they get ur address?

Unregistered

WOW! Those shoes key chain looks damn stylo milo!!!

Lucky you!!!

Unregistered

Hey Kenny Buddy,

Can u pls poke fun at Merc cars for me...? We can share the car afterwards...

Unregistered

Amazing.

Unregistered

Wa ho~~ So nice, i think lot more of brand will send something to u for advertise ler~

Unregistered

Your post on the Adidas football came into my company email too! And my company is in Penang.

Btw, I like the last pic! :)

Unregistered

Hey Kenny~! Concerning the Aussie match... you'd be interested in the following article in the Los Angeles Times:

Sins of 2002 Cast Shadow on Aussie Loss.

Sad but true. It's just in the name of the game.

This year's WC sucks, IMO. ~_~

Unregistered

Wow... lucky u.. ahha.. Congrats.

Unregistered

KENNY THE MOTHERFUCKER likes to pose like he's a muscular bodybuilder when in actual fact he is a lump of wobbly lard.

Unregistered

wow... cool... i'm starting to like adidas! :)

Unregistered

It's so nice of them to send those gifts to you! World Finger Cup 2010. Who knows, IMPOSSIBLE IS NOTHING anyway. LOL!

I know the penalty kick by totti wasn't fair but hey, I'm Italia's greatest fan ;D (don't need a genius to know huh?)so who cares (at least on my part :p) Btw, it was good enough that australia, being an underdog country in the WC got so far as the knockout round. Football's never been popular in australia anyway but I dare not deny that they'll probably go far in due time. Btw, "socceroos"? I don't mean to insult but I think that's plain daft.

For the finals my head says Brazil's gonna play against Germany but my heart says it's Brazil vs Argentina. What about you kenny?

Unregistered

cute!!!!!!!!!!!!! ;) *jealous*

eh .. faster go write something about Porsche .. then u can give me the car, k?????

Unregistered

Aiyo..that mini soccer shirt is so cute & this is made even better when u used your fingers train for world cup. Such creativity you have~! =)

Unregistered

me likey likey the keychaaaain! the last picture rocks my socks !! =D when u showed the jersey- i was staring at your black shirt thinking whats so ill fitted bout it until i realised its actually the yellow one. Man im blinded by you XD

Unregistered

...
I AM WANTING!

*goes off to poke fun at Adidas*

Unregistered

I love your entry on that DIY adidas ball. Cute freebies anyway!!

Unregistered

It must have been your free advertising of ADIDAS in ur blog that resulted in free gimmicks for you, Kenny....

:) Jealous nya....

Unregistered

Dear Kenny,
Is great that you got some adidads freebies by just making fun of them. I guess you should really take a look at this. I got it from my friend 30minutes ago and I am starting to feel this is tad bit off what we Malaysians actually should be.

[KS: link removed to protect identities of those involved, who are obviously minors]

I dont read chinese(although I am one) but my friend that reads it told me it is a school from Miri.

Cheers,
Tzu Siang,Selangor.

Unregistered

thats a kool gimmick man...
u made the ADIDAS company give u freebies for ur critics....
wonder why they didnt give u a ADIDAS teamgeist ball..

Unregistered

Cool Adidas things. Pity they are very small.

Unregistered

... u lucky fellow...

Unregistered

:P
:)

Forza Italia!!!

Unregistered

How did they get your address huh?

Unregistered

so jealousenvydengkikhianat at you!!!!!
:)

Unregistered

I hates you. I is jealousness.

Unregistered

love the SHOES!!!!!! =) see you at the world finger cup!!!! you can represent malaysia! =p

Unregistered

love the SHOES!!!!!! =) see you at the world finger cup!!!! you can represent malaysia! =p

Unregistered

hate those shoes, why can't they give something more .. lets say usefull ? hehe. yea im green now jealouse la. God just blessed an offending joker. Maybe their mind are twisted or smtg.. why didn't they sue you? OH MY KENNY, I THINK THE KEY CHAIN WILL EXPLODE SOMEDAY and the two small shoes will aim and fly into your eyes and blind you ! And i really think that the pen holder is an eqquipment used to charge electrical flow into the pen so that you'll get a schock when you use it next time! Oh Dear kenny! I care for you, give me all that you received from them!

Unregistered

Goodness, Kenny, your blogs even caught the ADIDAS's attention. I wonder did the CEO read that blog. Gotta give you the thumbs up. You're the man. You're a man and you blog well too. Great work. Write more!!!

Unregistered

hey.. maybe u shud start blogging bout how to create a porsche wif condoms...
Next thing u know, the car's wrapped in a courrier on ur front yard

Unregistered

I wonder will Kotex send you anything?

Unregistered

yeah how did they get your address? Uh, I don't think u would publicly publish your home address on your blog right?

Unregistered

How did they know your address?

Unregistered

Next item to poke fun at: Osim UGallop :P

Unregistered

AUSTRALIA WAS ROBBED!!!

Nice blog, btw.

Unregistered

HAha ask Sesame Street sponser u a range of boxers with their Sesame Street characters.. HAha.

Unregistered

That's really sweet of them leh. But I'm wondering too: How on earth they know your address!

Unregistered

walaneh...u so song la..get so many freebies from them. Hahaha wish OSIM will send u sth to ride on soon

Unregistered

Hey Dude "[KS: link removed to protect identities of those involved, who are obviously minors]". That's a very mature thing to do...while me, a 40 year old uncle was spreading the same link around to show " Miri Boleh".

Registered

wingz, I also dunno! INJUSTICE! CORRUPTION!

angelin, stupid kotex. :P

rachz, *fingers hug rachz*

mia + eantautjk, they got my add 'cos they emailed me before sending the stuff over. No conspiracies right there.

kenJJ, they wouldn't know my size.

Eve, I know I know. :P

Jayelle, no wearing pants either.

Yong, I wore it to the Brazil Ghana match!

Avril, they said they love the entry and it was being passed around in their regional office. I think if you slam Nokia, Sony Ericsson will send you a phone.

Laksa, I used to support Nike only until yesterday.

KingMeng, YEP! That sounds like a plan.

e, apart from that, it was a good video clip though. Definitely the most violent out of the few recent ones involving school kids. heh.

Unregistered

I think Osim didn't know you're so cheap. If they could have predicted that free stuff could sway your opinion, they might have sent you a bunch of free stuff for free advertising too.

Unregistered

Oh no..jealous nya. I want that too..hehehehe :)

Unregistered

[KS: link removed to protect identities of those involved, who are obviously minors]

kenny check out the miri girls fight

and it says tht miri local papers dont dare to post bout this news because the dad is a gangster

Unregistered

Hi Kenny, been lurking on your website for a while. You're really funny. Two thumbs up.

Unregistered

Lucky Bastard

Unregistered

like that also can. win liao..

Unregistered

wha lau leh.. kenny u ar damn heng sia.. make mi so jealous of u!! waaaaaaa...

Unregistered

Hey, I got the same type of balancing pen & holder from my company (without the Adidas logo of course)... Maybe you can check the bottom of the pyramid and see if it says "Made in China"... Haha...

Unregistered

Ahhh, the joys of being a journalist. I was a broadcast journalism student turned PR coordinator, hoping to turn back soon. The freebies were probably a thank you for 'promoting' their ball (any publicity is good publicity and all)...OR....to shut you up and make sure you be nice from now on ;)

Unregistered

anyone noticed they gave kenny so many stuff except the football that costs RM399.90? O=)

Unregistered

Nothing makes me a happier person than seeing australia and England packed off, and rooney sent off.

Unregistered

Funny picture! (:

Unregistered

i love checking your blog. we're all in need of a good laugh and your site never lets us down!

Unregistered

its good to be a celebrity...

always ve sponsors giving gifts...
haha...

Unregistered

Hey, good for you! That was a really smart post. Really hillarious.

Btw, were you aware that Traxx.fm mentioned this post this morning at 8.45 a.m.? You might want to call them up to get a recorded version of it. I think they release radio announcements etc. within one week. So get it fast!

The announcement was made when they were talking about the top sporting goods' outlet in KL and that Studio-R was rated as the top-selling sports shop because of their variety of brands. Then they moved on to talk about Nike and eventually Adidas and one fella mentioned about Kenny Sia, the famous blogger... about your ad etc. Nothing was mentioned about the "sanitary pad" part but about you highlighting the price of the football and making one on your own and having Adidas send you goodies for the publicity...that it was smart of Adidas for rewarding you etc.

Who knows, you might be the official brand ambassador for Adidas since no blogger has endorsed any particular sports brand yet. Well, not that I know of. Good luck!

Unregistered

lucky u! adidas.. hmm... if i poke fun on them, will i get the freebies too? hmmm..... better try it!

Unregistered
