Short Talk:

I love the Kuching Festival Fair, but I can't help but to feel that it's more of the same every year. Food. Credit card booths. Wedding photography booths. Where's the variety?

Fun And Games With The Madame

I met someone important while I was in Hong Kong.

The one and only Minister Mentor of Singapore Lee Kuan Yew was having dim sum lunch with his entourage at a restaurant near Central.

He spotted me just as I was walking in, hollered me over and much to my surprise, told me that he's a big fan of kennysia.com. He also said to me he liked reading Dawn Yang and hoped Paul Twohill would win Singapore Idol.

Fine, I lied. It wasn't actually Lee Kuan Yew. Just a wax figure of him.

But still! I was having a stimulating monologue with an inanimated object that looked vaguely like the Minister Mentor. That's something ok. That means I'm like, cooler than the rest of you plebians.

So who wanna touch me?

I was at the Madame Tussauds Wax Museum at Victoria Peak, Hong Kong.

Madame Tussauds of course is well known for their realistic wax models of famous personalities. Their branch in Hong Kong is the first in Asia and features wax sculptures of celebrities that we're more familiar with in this part of the world.

Entrance tickets to the wax museum are HKD110/RM55 a pop, which is actually quite expensive, but it's fun to see how detailed the wax works are.

You can try fooling your friends into believing that you met so-and-so celebrity in Hong Kong. I attempted to do the same, but all they said was "Eh, this one quite realistic hor!"

Dammit, am I that predictable? :(

At least I had fun kicking David Beckham's balls.

Getting poked by Madonna's breasts.

And delivering a speech at the White House with Dubya by my side.

Personally, I don't think it's a good idea to have a wax figure of yourself on display for everyone to touch and see.

I mean, you could be the world's most successful golf player and people could still make fun of you.

I guess it's alright if you're like Gandhi and everyone loves you.

But what if you're "Aunty Killer" Bae Yong-Jun and half the male population hates you to death?

I hate Bae Yong-Jun.

I still hold him personally responsible for that bloody annoying Winter Sonata theme song that's playing repetitively in my head. That stupid Korean baby face.

The worst thing is, I spotted a couple of these posers taking photos with Andy Lau like this.

How horrible right. What would Andy Lau think if he saw people taking photo with his wax figure like that! Like getting molested liddat.

Then suddenly, I saw Ayumi Hamasaki.



And then I did this.

Hehe.

Sorry. Couldn't resist.

hey.. had fun ya? why werent u on my flight to macau?

Unregistered

Just being a typical male, eh?

Unregistered

understandable..

Unregistered

Unregistered

Unregistered

Yeahhhh! I can see you're having a great time there.

Unregistered

coolman.. i wan fooled by lee kuan yew initially.. :(

Unregistered

Why didn't you take a pic with Andy Lau's figure? I didn't see it~~ I heard that Andy Lau's figure actually got heart beat. Is that true?

Unregistered

Hmmm... some of them don't look too similar to their real-life versions. In comparison, the stuff at the original Madame Tussauds Wax Museum in London look more realistic, judging from a friend's travel photos.

Different.. erm.. waxers (what dya call people who make wax mannequins anyway?) result in slight discrepancies..maybe?

Unregistered

LOL YOU KISSED AYUMIII. (or u smell her?)

Unregistered

BECKHAM!!!!!!!!!

Unregistered

hilarious la ur poses.. keep it up!

Unregistered

I went to Hong Kong in April and the wax museum was closed for renovation or something... darn it!!!

Unregistered

aiks...

the madonna wax look REAL fake for Madame Tussauds standard...

Unregistered

Unregistered

Unregistered

Hahahahah you look darn cute. XD
This entry makes me wanna visit there NOW. >

Unregistered

Yo Dude, I enjoy reading your blog. It really puts a spin on things. But, please get a gf asap. Kissing the wax girl is........

Unregistered

Nice shots.

Unregistered

Yea, I think some of the wax figures were quite badly done... The Madonna one looks the most horridly unlike the real person..

Unregistered

It's chearper than the London's Madame Tussaud.. It's £20++ and the queue is usually rather long.
Anyway, it seems that the HK one have some really good wax figure and some err... horrendous wax figures.

Unregistered

wow...da andy lau wan looks real...but ayumi's wan looks fake though....

Unregistered

i hope it's not camera tricks... ur diet seems to be working worrr!

haha
nice hair too.

Unregistered

it looks like beckham is 'searching' for something with his right hand on ur balls

Unregistered

Wahahaha. Tiger Wood looks hard into your ass.

Unregistered

Nice place,HK. Beckham and Andy Lau looks real. Unfortunately i didn't visit the wax musuem when i was there.Nice kenny! Should have made ayumi sexier...

Unregistered

hehe... notti notti kenny, how could you...

Unregistered

"At least I had fun kicking David Beckham's balls."
After he grabbed yours?

Unregistered

poor andy lau!! my mom will definitely if she sees that !! >

Unregistered

Hi Kenny, from your pics, the Bruce Lee figure doesn't look like him at all!

Unregistered

lol.. u look damn cute in the bae yong-jun pic..

Unregistered

*lol*
You cheeky thing, you!
(Poor Becks though... with you literally hitting under the belt - tsk,tsk)

Unregistered

Good one Kenny Boy. It's Hilarious. Love the tiger woods pix.

Unregistered

Haha.. typical Kenny. After talking about ppl molesting other wax ppl, he did it himself. But Madonna really looked terrible.. X-P

Unregistered

wow, they have more wax figures now! a lot of those wax figures weren't even there when i was there last year :( but I'm definitely not paying to enter the museum again. I see it all in kennysia! haha

Unregistered

walao...those wax figure look so real man...

Unregistered

I hate madame tussaud, so crappy!

Unregistered

You are definitely gay!

Unregistered

So, what color was Ayumi's panties? :D

Unregistered

Like Andy Lau kena molested by that lady, Ayumi, Lee Kuan Yew, Beckham etc etc all kena molested by you. The horror...

Unregistered

Gee, I didn't know there was one in Hong Kong. Madonna and David Beckham look really fake.

Ayumi Hamasaki looks like Jennifer Lopez O_O

Unregistered

did you went to disneyland?

Unregistered

hey.... i was fooled bout lee kuan yew too... but they do look soo similar... OMG.... but AYUMI and that korean actor... wahh!! i wish i could be der taking picx n fool my friends... lolx

Unregistered

u said u went alone. SO who's that camera/phone camera man/lady who's willing to help you take those awkward behaviour photos?

Unregistered

There's something called the Tripod.

I was at Madame Tussauds on the 21st July. Not lucky enough to bump into a Kenny tho'.

Unregistered

LOL... Andy Lau's figure got heartbeat wan! I took so many pictures with him cause he's the best looking figure there. I freaked out when I saw Leslie Chueng's figurine cause he was at a bend and they were playing his songs in the background. It's like a shrine to him or something.

I had fun with my first Madame Tussaud's experience. Totally interactive though I have to admit that RM55 to see candles are pretty ex...

Unregistered

I didnt get to see the wax work when I was in HK.. haha I think I'll prolly pose like that girl if i get to see Andy Lau. HAha.. you are too cute! I like chubby guys. :P

Unregistered

Adoi! Kenny, I am in the office at 2.45pm and I laughed in front of my computer. My colleagues stared at me as if I am some kind of weirdo. It's all your fault!!! :P You made my day already.

Unregistered

Unregistered

Unregistered

cooL!! ayumi is too beautiful for u, by the way :P
i agree too, putting up your wax figure there will create even more jokes around, like what you did XD
how can mr lee kuan yew know you? unfair!!! XP

Unregistered

dont u think u resembles LeeKuanYew !

Unregistered

This time, you missed out Gandhi's picture?? I don't see it.

Unregistered

hhaha =) nice wax..look so real~!

Unregistered

hey ya... i think the word should be plebeians

Unregistered

why ayumi has no reaction when u kiss her...

Unregistered

Bet Ayumi must be choking... smell durian... :p

Unregistered

Do you peep what's inside Ayumi ? I bet you did, you hamsap bugger

Unregistered

its good to have an Asian wax museum. At least a change from the europeon version.

SOmehow i wish they would do better wax models for ayumi. She is hot, but the wax is not like her and lack her charisma.

Unregistered

andy lau looks the most real among all.. and that aunty really.. no comment lol

Unregistered

That looked like loads of fun :) Makes me want to go there too!

Unregistered

Saw u in LCCT on your way back to KG. We were on the same flight. We were on our way home from Phuket. Nice place. Tho' u might not know us, but we've met u a couple of times around KG.. small world.

Wat happened to your IC, the PP machine can't screen? :-) Saw u there too...

Unregistered

AIYOH, you had so much fun at the wax museum.

they seems to add several new figures, last year when i was there, there was no Bae Yong-Jun,Tiger Woods and Ayumi, they even shift house for LKY!!!

i dun even have time to take such comical shots with the figures, nah...david beckham was protected by the staff last year.

didnt u see aaron kowk??

Unregistered

Eh, how you take ur pic harrrr?!?!??!

Unregistered

Kenny, can we go holiday together? Maybe for a week.....Wait till u reply, I'll give you my contact number.

Unregistered

You sadistic bastard........kissing a wax-version of ayumi hamasaki ??

Man that's a pile of wax with fake hairs and paint. Think chucky the child-killer. It'll be so cool if the wax came to life and tried to molest you in return..... holy shit.

Hope you have nightmares after this. :)

Unregistered

lol! i loved your poses! there was an exhibit in Singapore quite a few years ago.. i went with my classmates xD

Unregistered

Too bad they are all wax...

Who knows... from here on there is always a possibility of you one day meeting them for real...

Who know one day andy lau will call you up for breakfast.. there is always a way for good things to come around to those who do good.

Hmmm and then again if Ayumi Hamasaki were to read this .. she might not call you up for a dinner :)

Take care dude.. you are doing great with this website
