Short Talk:

I fell off a bike when I was in Vietnam and injured my right hand. It's still hurting and I can't lift heavy stuff for close to a week now.

Anyone know a good registered reflexologist in Kuching?

An Impossible Defeat

I am feeling so very the tulan right now.

Timothy, Lance and I are in this Cornetto contest. We're supposed to form an all-male team to participate in the contest, so that's what we did.

We called ourselves the kennysia.com Lurve Squad.

Check out our kickass group logo.

The way this contest works is that we collect points by eating ice-creams, and then use the points collected to compete with other groups to win prize packages.

Sounds simple right?

Eat ice-creams. Collect points. Bid prizes.

Even kids can do that.

With an ice-cream junkie like Tim and a fat ass like me in the group, you'd think that we'd have absolutely no problems racking up the points and send all the other contestants back home to their momma crying.

Well... NOT QUITE.

There's a grand prize on offer every three weeks. That is the prize that everybody wants.

In the first round of the contest, the grand prize was to go diving with the sharks at Aquaria KLCC.

We didn't bid. The winner was this other group called 'WSC' who accumulated 7300 points to bid the top prize. If 1 Cornetto = 100 points, that's 73 Cornettos they consumed in two weeks!

That's alright, because the kennysia.com Lurve Squad decided to let them win. (Ok lah. In actual fact, we were too slack to get our group organised until the last minute)

Second round comes along.

This time the grand prize is one night to live up the glamourous high life and go on an evening date with Hannah Tan at Maison and Tarbush Starhill.

We didn't win.

BECAUSE WSC WON THE BID AGAIN.

I was frustrated. How the heck could ANYONE eat so many Cornettos in such a short time?!

So I clicked on this WSC's group profile, half expecting the three of them to look like this.

Instead of having three overweight pimply teenage kids staring back at me, I was confronted with three Nicole Richie lookalikes.

Are you kidding me? This is ridiculous.

How the hell can our group of one guy, one ice-cream glutton (Tim) and one fat ass (me) with a kickass group logo, lose to three stick-thin skinny dudes!?

What has the world turned into!?

This isn't fair!

So for the next round, we decided to get our act together.

The grand prize is an Airplane + Go-karting + iPod Shuffle package.

In the beginning, WSC got the early lead, but kennysia.com Lurve Squad was ruthless. Over the next two weeks, we went on so many trips to 7-11 and ate so many Cornettos until our jaws got frozen. But the results paid off.

Finally, we knocked them off the top spot!

WSC is no more. Come, let's all laugh at them.

HAHAHAHAHAHAAHAAA!!!

Lick on that, suckers! Too late to shop for ice-cream now.

As the clock ticks down to zero, it seems almost definite that we're taking home the big prize. We refreshed the page many times, making sure we're not outbidded.



Then right at the lasttttttt second...

WTF. These people go swimming in Cornettos or what?

You realize you don't actually have to EAT the ice cream...right?

Unregistered

Y oh Y did it happen?

Unregistered

They probably bought the whole cornetto and give away to all their kampung people.

Registered

...

Unregistered

probably they stocked up the points for something they reallllyyyy wanted.. or maybe they went and dig tru the bins for the points?

*stick-men on a mission*

Unregistered

top 20 here... wahahaha

Unregistered

lol sponsor your blog readers to eat lah!

Unregistered

mebbe they juz...own ice-cream stalls..zz~

Unregistered

IMO, the only possible way for them to win is Hacking the server...

Unregistered

feel like eating ice cream now !!!

Unregistered

maybe dey own a store or 7-11?

Unregistered

you don't have to eat the ice creams you know o.O
*hint *hint* ^.^

Unregistered

That is call contest... every1 use all the tactics to win... that "silverarrow" maybe is collecting all the point and bid for the last round. or maybe thay guys is own a ice cream stall ler... haha.

Unregistered

Maybe all the readers of kennysia.com should each buy at least one cornetta royale and give the PIN to kenny

Unregistered

I tell you, any freaking contest now are all but rigged!

Unregistered

Probably they are given cash to buy???

Unregistered

maybe they got all their friends to eat the ice creams or something lol. or maybe they eat 20 ice creams a day wheeeee

Unregistered

and at least it wasnt Wsc again haha =)

Unregistered

Must be Kelong I think... How can clock in 10,000 so many in a short span of time?!

Unregistered

let's go swimming swimming swimming... Do you still want to bid for the last package? :p

Unregistered

Thats funny now that you mentioned this cornetto thing. I was at Maison on Sasi the Don's invitation. Believe me you didn't miss much at the party.

But anyway, may I suggest to consume the ice cream melted. Stuff it all in a bottle suck it all up with a straw, or stuff em into those water container backpacks. As for the cones take it for lunch, munch on it for tea break and eat it with rice like keropok for lunch and dinner.

Hopefully you shall win the next bid~!

Unregistered

oh too bad.. you'll win the next one.. but go on a diet immediately after that.. haha!! stock up on ice cream la!! put in freezer and eat.. every 5 minutes one ice cream!!

Unregistered

well kenny, you could have just buy a carton or two and treat some primary school kids. they'll be glad to help you with ice-creams and you earn points =)

Registered

The got the last laugh.

Unregistered

aiyooo. only hannah tan lar. not monica belluci. nvm lah. be glad that there're actual guys who are more desperate than u guys to want to see her in person. go walk ard in any event can see her la.see until my eyes bleed ald.

Unregistered

OMGGG DATING WITH HANNAH TAN MAN !!! Too bad kenny was defeated >

Unregistered

lol... nice 1

Unregistered

muahahahaha, must you finish all your cornetto, can't you just like distributing them to the people around you :P

Unregistered

How unfortunate. Hahahahaha.

Unregistered

Maybe they just bought in bulk, and sell it cheaper?

Are the points being refreshed every 2 weeks after the new bid? Else, you can always accumulate by running a "wholesale" nature of business.

Well, the last man standing is always the organiser, Cornetto. Or maybe they themselves created a virtual team to win the big bid.

Unregistered

It is obvious, that they used HAX!

Unregistered

what is this about ?
very confusing.

Unregistered

wow hannah tan is HOT.
her body looks damn fake tho like her waist is unproportional.

see kenny? if u wanna be hot u shouldn't eat so much ice cream fatty.

Unregistered

i felt TULAN too!
just from reading this post!!
OMFG
they are sooooooooo kiasu
can die
-.-

Unregistered

the contest is fake one lah, how can be last minute kena outbid? that group must be fake, planted by cornetto so that no one can win

Unregistered

This ice-cream eating contest sounds so fun! I loves eating ice-cream...

Unregistered

It looks like as though they found a way to hack the website and manipulated the scores la.

Unregistered

There's an Ah Pek who treats dislocated shoulders, sparins etc at Foochow No2 area. can give directions if u want

Unregistered

I wonder how many people know what tulan means? No, it's not an ugly gorilla...

Unregistered

duh kenny dont you see? it's one big fat coporate lie. there isnt prizes to begin with. all they need to do is announce some "winner" at the end of the auction to make suckers like yourself (sorry no offense) want to win the next round. more ice cream sales for them yay.

Unregistered

ice cream sickos!!!

Unregistered

Kenny

U must be new to contest. FIrstly, there are only a few explanations.

1st = They hacked (which can be done as my friend did that once to anohter online game to prove a point to the organiser. Eventually another hacker won)

2nd = those winners didnt really eat those ice cream. U count the cost vs the worth of the prize offered. How muhc is a konek-tu now? RM2? SO even if it is rm2 x 100 konektu u only forked out rm200. That's a good investment rite to win? But of cos that's what Walls is trying to get u guys to do. To "gamble" in such a way to outbid the other. The on-going Marigold contest also plays along the same line. U think u can consume that many drinks and win? Unless u own a coffee shop that use upto 50cans of milk per day. Otherwise forget it!

3rd = there is no 3rd in my list. SO if I were u just pay rm1000 to hannah-t and book her for 1 hour of makan chit-chat.

Unregistered

That's a heckofalot of cornettos.

Unregistered

Maybe they have friends eating for them? Anyway, eating so many Cornettos will just speed your mortality rate up :p

Unregistered

i agree with zzz, they may have hacked the site~

Unregistered

duh, you dont exactly have to EAT the icecream. maybe they bought for some company dinner or function

Unregistered

My point of view... Well planned Cornetto secret plan... So Cornetto don't really need to pay ANYONE!

Unregistered

aiyo...next time u gather us at sarawak plaza lah...we help you eat...

Unregistered

maybe they buy for other people as well..

Unregistered

Injured your right hand falling off a bike? Never heard THAT one before... heh

Unregistered

buy and give to charity... haha, or they buy cornetto wrappers from people for a cheap price...

Unregistered

O.M.G...... Take care your body man Kenny !! How many marathon u going to join in order to keep yourself FIT ?? LOL

Unregistered

wow... i dont think i can eat so many ice creams! salute to you and all those who joined the contest!!

Unregistered

If you do your math right, you should have bought 200 cornettos and distribute to orphanage, get the points and out bid WSC. :P 200 cornettos is abt RM400. I think you can get tax deduction for donation too.

Unregistered

Hey dude, I bet you are are building up body fat to fit the shirt :)

Unregistered

I think the winner is wholesaler of Conetto ice-cream, diam-diam ubi suddenly show up and beat u down...

Unregistered

Treat this as a good lesson Kenny!!

Unregistered

mayb they know some1 who sell ice-cream so can suka ati eat.
even worst, they may CHEATED bt dunno la...

Unregistered

and the biggest winner goes to...

CORNETTO!!!!!!!

*cornetto boss counting money earned from the competition*

Unregistered

The Hannah Tan prize is the best. Assuming she'll be wearing THAT during the date.

Unregistered

i seriously think they buy n they dun eat~ boo!

Unregistered

should find alternative to beat them.how bout tis...u pay for the ice cream...u get the points...n i eat for u??

Unregistered

Hey dude, its very obvious that they 'hacked' the system. Quite common for online contests. Maybe you can send a letter to the organizers to disqualify them (and get your top spot in the process?) haha =)

Unregistered

hannah tan didn't wanna meet you guys.. she is silverarrow in disguise!

Unregistered

lol kenny u sucks.

Unregistered

silverarrow kenak the "icecream"

Unregistered

only licenced reflexologist ah? i nvr ask them to show licence oh! :p ...have u tried the one opposite the pending scuba diving shop behind the Big fresh supermarket? quite famous though he didn't heal me.

Unregistered

I seriously did buy all the ice-creams and eat (but not all)...

*hint: you can still key in 100 cornetto in just 10 mins or even 5mins if you are fast, Without eating them. Just buy and clock in.Simple as that! Remember this game is not about EAting the ice-cream. Thus it is not impossible to gather 10000 in a short time.

Hacking? even tho it can be done, at the end of the day, you still need the lids for prove.

Regards: chocoluv

Unregistered

y u always tulan?

Unregistered

Kenny I think it's a small thing you didn't win the competition, but tulanness u have to go for a few more marathons to lose out your "spare tyre" tummy. LOL

Unregistered

If it were me , i wouldve see what benefit i could get out of buying..say.. a truck load of cornettoes. Give it out for free and record down all the PIN. CONFIRM WIN! Its just a matter if u really want to win or not in this kind of competition. =P

Unregistered

Assuming each cone is 100 points, 10,000 points = 100 cones. Assuming each cone is RM3, means they spent RM3,000 to get a crummy Ipod Shuffle, a gokart ride and a ride on the plane? Damn em-tai rite?

Unregistered

oops....its RM300 for the stuff...not RM3k. Maths tak jadi. XD

Oh then its quite worth it wor.

Unregistered

Nice one, liaw! Are you left-handed or right-handed? Can't enjoy yourself using an untrained hand :P . That's very tulan for sure.
Lots of foot reflexologist in Kuching, hor? Won't matter if you're a gorilla, lei?
Get well soon!

Unregistered

haha..sincerely i cant imagine those 3 guys wif those looks will enjoy eating ice-creams but they do hav those computer geek look

Unregistered

my goodness...
are you people even human
as much as I like Ice Cream...
this is way...too much
however
good luck!!!

Unregistered

is there any conspiracy between wsc and cornetto?? is this a family contest or fear factor challenge? 100 ice cream.. siao..

Unregistered

eh maybe you kena conned izzit?..10,000 sticks?..siow ar?..got people that kiasu bo?..hahahaha..

Unregistered

Haha...
They might have frozen jaws.
So, i check out the lastest results again.
So the WSC is in the lead AGAIN!
Gam bateh!!!
Eat more cornetto! Eat more..win more...and become fat more...haha. Just kidding.

Unregistered

lol, try holding shift while clicking the refresh button, but it only works for IE though. in mozilla u just open a new window.

Unregistered

Maybe they own the 7-11 chain where u guys buy your ice-creams? Muahaha...

Sounds fun. Maybe my girl friends and I shall form a team and bid for the last package!

Unregistered

pwned by silver arrow.....

how many cornettoe did u eat exactly, kenny? haha....u better watch ur weight ar...

Unregistered

ya wolfx, rm 300 quite worth for 3 ipods, gokart and plane for 3 persons... should have spot it earlier.

Unregistered

wtf, hannah looks like a blowup doll

Unregistered

lmao,get a life lah :D jks

Unregistered

100 ice creams, rofl, rofl.

Unregistered

Aww.. how ironic =\

Unregistered

Kenny...Kenny... U said u tulan. But more like gonglan to me...hehehe...(no offence). I guess you would like to show the siao-ness in you again, right? Anyway, a part of me would like to salute you (and team members) for the 'ai peah' (fighting) spirit. Eh... Why your blog suddenly got too much junk food promo lah? I remember reading a Twisties contest some time ago too. Ini macam, nanti rokok also come in liao.

Unregistered

Oop, who should be blamed? Blame urseft lah, big body size but with small size stomarch...? hehe
Even defeated, but at least kennysia.com has had a good try.

Unregistered

relax, kenny..

just let those 'pathetic' guys win.. u have much more interesting things to do than licking ice creams 24/7 rite..

Unregistered

Kenny, tak payah eat the ice cream... beli aje..

Unregistered

u r such a pathetic looser :p

Unregistered

wow..apa itu ais cream...yum yum~

Unregistered

u kno wat, kenny. i think these 3 guys are part of the promo too. the prizes are jus a hoax.. they're not real. so if they run into the risk of someone actually winning it, they increase the points of these 3 stick-thin guys so that other ppl wun win. in actualy fact, there is nothing to win anywae!

Unregistered

huh

Unregistered

wah lao... u guys eat so many cornettos ar?! later your pockets get frostbite then u know. lol...

Unregistered

aiya stupid. they can buy the ice creams and sold it to vendors at a cheaper rate.

Unregistered

Think out of the box man.

Got so many legitimate ways to win this competition but your team chose the weakest way to try win it.

No cool man.

Make a video to show you all actually ATE the ice-cream, maybe cornetto management might consider giving you all a consolation prize! lol

Unregistered

Kenny,...
You're pissed over loosing with 2750 points?? We lost and came second place for the dive in KL aquaria to DAMN WSC by 1 cone. Our 10K point are acumulated over a month plus and all team members ate their good share of Cornetto. Not all 10K points came from the cones,.. there are bonus point for forming a group at a certain time. Anyway i know how u felt, we felt the same with the first package. As for hannah tan,... nothing great. It was so boring even the gals were entertaining themselves.

Unregistered

dudes, much as you are trying to pacify the sore spot of kenny and his fellow tellytubbies on not winning any of the packages, the contest is as true as it states. No hacking, no hoax, no walls-inside team. We are all just like everyone here, a "once-tulan-team" that didn't win the first bid.

Yes, eating a whole load of ice cream was no joke but bear in mind, this contest has been running for over a month. and with sheer determination to win after losing the first package by 1 freakin cone, we were more than determined to 'tapau' the SkyTour package, and that was what we did.

We didn't buy 100 ice creams overnight just to win it but points were collected over time. Friends assisted by buying for their own consumption but passing their lids to us. So, if you wanna win, gotong-royong a bit lah.. Things just dont happen to fall from the sky.

Kenny, from all the previous group/individual ipod bids, you should know there are many lurkers out there who are just waiting to pounce and tapau at the very last minute. Good luck for the final bid :) We know how it feels to be knocked out at the very last second after hitting F5 and seeing your name as the winner. We shared the same sentiments as well, saying it's hacked, hoax, internal job, BS, etc...

Cheers to all!
