Short Talk:

Blog Plug of the Day: Well, this one is not exactly a blog, but a forum frequented by (mostly) Singaporean bloggers. They won an auction in the recent Nuffnang Anniversary party and they are claming their prize, which is a free plug on kennysia.com

So join The Cowboy Bar and see what bored Singaporeans do when they don't spend time catching Mas Selamat.

The Last Supper

Leonardo da Vinci painted this way back in 1492.

Now, people like me pay 8 Euros (RM40) just to watch this piece of work for 15 minutes. Even a foot massage costs cheaper than that.

From the back wall of Santa Maria della Grazie church in Milan, Italy.

Jesus said to his twelve apostles, "One of you shall betray me."

Happy (belated) Easter, Jesus.

And I can't believe that you can't believe you paid 8 Euros to actually see a masterpiece.

Unregistered

Unregistered

Unregistered

Unregistered

Unregistered

Jesus, the MOST awesome human who ever lived, and still is. He is risen!

Unregistered

Unregistered

Unregistered

Unregistered

it's so real isn't it?

Unregistered

Worth it!!

Unregistered

Happy Easter!!

Unregistered

THIRTEENTH YOU MOFO

Unregistered

this is one of them things i've gotta see before i KO

Unregistered

I think you shall pay more respect to Christianity and to Leonardo da Vinci. Do not make fun of Jesus or Christianity.

Nobody force you to pay to visit the painting. You can go watch your movie for a million times, but still it ain't the Last Supper painting.

Unregistered

1 of u shall BETRAY me... Jesus must be feeling so hurt, helpless, breatheless, devastated, torn apart and so on... & yet can't do anything about it in the name of love for the bigger picture...

Anyone actually enjoy being betrayed???? Anyone???

Unregistered

I read somewhere jesus is a paranoid fella who employed spies to follow his followers around. that's how he found out that Judas was betraying him.

Unregistered

You can take picture, but no flash. You might blind Jesus and his friends.

Unregistered

Jamilah,

He's God, he knows who'll betray Him. He did not hired spies. Do your research properly! I suggest you refer to the Bible instead.

Unregistered

Maybe I should check with the Bible. I also learned that Jesus studied buddhism when he is in India. Kinda Cool.

Unregistered

8 euros isn't that bad, since it's a once in a lifetime experience. I'm sure you won't go for a second round lol!!

Unregistered

haha.. yeah, happy easter jesus.. and kenny :D

Unregistered

so kenny's a christian?

Unregistered

Are u a catholic kenny?

Happy Easter BTW

Unregistered

Easter celebration means more than anything for the Christians, more important than the Christmas celebration in fact. It is Easter that reminds us of how Christ has continued to live in each one of us who believes in Him eternally... =)

Unregistered

It's not belated. It's still Easter you fool.

Unregistered

I paid 15 Euro to watch that in Milan!!! Photography strictly prohibited i thought!!

Unregistered

Kenny Christian? Of course he's not. He wouldn't make fun of the Lord if he was. This is like at least the 2nd time he's done it.

Unregistered

In fact I think he's anti-Christianity.

Unregistered

kenny is not a Christian la, he doesn't even believe in God. His family's got a temple above their business building in Kuching.

Unregistered

Wow you went to Milan to see the Last Supper.
I missed the opportunity when I was in Italy few months ago.

Unregistered

It's amazing how religion fascinates many.

Unregistered

wouldn't kenny get sued because he took the picture?
we don't need to pay the money now. we can look at the picture for free. thanks kenny. HAHAHA

Unregistered

Hey Kenny

How did u even manage to take photos in there? I was over at Milan a few years back, and they were SO STRICT against cameras!!

Cheers man!

Unregistered

I saw u in CLEO!
I already noted in my blog about 3 months back that Kenny Sia may be in the run for the CLEO Bechelor of the Year and then it came true!
I love your answer on the which actor in a movie question! I laughed out so loud alone reading it at the cafe just now, people thought I'm xiao one!

Unregistered

i'll be willing to pay 100RM just to see that painting.. what a nice painting from historial Leonardo Da Vinci..

the problem is i have no money to go to Milan at the moment.. i was surprise why you complained to pay for that?? if you dont like it then you shouldn't go there..

Unregistered

BlogMalaysia, what sort of drugs are you on? How was Kenny dissing Christianity? How did you manage to get that from what he wrote?! Insane. He paid for it, you don't have to be Christian to want to see it, and really you shouldn't read stuff on the Internet if you're going to misinterpret it SO BADLY.

Unregistered

Ooo... Da vinci... 1 of my fav inventors... Wonder hw he drew hw jesus looked liked...

Unregistered

I enjoy your blog immensely but your comment on the legendary Leonardo Da Vinci was of poor taste. Foot massage and one of its kind masterpiece the world has ever seen?

Count yourself priviledged to witness such an amazing piece of art. I would pay heaps more to see it and appreciate every stroke of brush on that painting.

Unregistered

how could you compare a piece of amazing artwork to foot massage

Unregistered

I'm not sure.. i stil prefer d foot massage though :)

Reminds me of Da Vinci Code..

Unregistered

haha, i'm don't prefer foot massage, though i will spent 8 euro on a pizza there though, which is what i did. the church looked so small from outside, and not an art lover, i can't appreciate any strokes inside(though the micheangelo one inside the vatican city left me awestruck).
its just a matter of preference, those extremists out there should just close yourselves in a locked room if you can't take other people's opinion. that's honesty you get it??

Unregistered

Happy Easter Kenny!

Unregistered

i m goin to screenshot the painting and post on my blog.

Unregistered

Really a blessed belated Easter to all.

Yeah!!!

Unregistered

The last supper is a work of art!

Unregistered

K, think it this way, u pay 40euro, but u get RM400 mil back a gift from Jesusa

Unregistered

I see this painting and i can't help but but notice the same things mentioned in Dan Brown's book, which turned out to be false but kind of intriguing...i just can't help but feel annoyed by people around me who keep wanting to convert me...in fact just stopped talking to a friend bcoz she tried the same thing...she den sent me a message again...with all sort of things to convince me...argh!!!! So hate religion now, anyone who isn't in yours is an infidel...oh great, burn me on a stake then...

Would love to travel around Europe one day...especially Italy...and see this fresco myself!

Why is this blog related to Easter Sunday, sucker.

Unregistered

Look closely at the picture and you will notice someone is showing his "fingers".

-Da Vinci Code is for noobs...Stpd movie with no sense...I rather watch Star Trek...WTF!

Unregistered

da vinci code is fake

Hey Kenny, Congratulations on your nomination as this year's Cleo 50 Most Eligible Bachelor. Do look at your previous post : http://www.kennysia.com/archives/2006/04/darth_towel_hol.php. Now you can say, you're a nominee!! Congrats once again.

Oh, how come you haven't blogged bout it yet. I'm a lil surprised. Well, i believe you would be able to garner lots of votes and support. All the best :)

Unregistered

people talk about Kenny's family business, what family business is that?

Unregistered

i think is along?

hehe... joking..

Unregistered

"its just a matter of preference, those extremists out there should just close yourselves in a locked room if you can't take other people's opinion. that's honesty you get it??"

So, lala, by writing this line, aren't you also one of those who can't take other people's opinion?

I suppose so. Heh. ;)

Unregistered

Wow Kenny in Europe! How cool is that? You don't happen to come to Germany, is it? Frohe Ostern (guess what that means)

Unregistered

o_O inappropriate yet so malaysian.

Unregistered

And he was betrayed indeed... Nice pictures, by the way.

Unregistered

Missed the opportunity to see it when I was in Milan. We didn't book in advance and the next available slot was like in a month's time.

Unregistered

wow...not cheap considering a 15mins of admiring the painting but worth it. If I am you I will have pay to view as well. :)

Unregistered

not cheap ar...but worth it. I will pay that sum of money oso if I were you. :)

Unregistered

You're just so rich Kenny. Crisscrossing the globe for holidays...

Unregistered

Hey Kenny, how do u get the ticket? last time i'm at Milan they told me need to buy the ticket in advanced coz it is too much people queue to look this great painting!! gosh.. thanks for the sharing!!

Unregistered

Hey Kenny,

I did my research that indicates I need 2 days in advance to get tickets, I went to the Church in Oct last year hoping I can get the tickets but they are all sold out till Dec and they said I need to book online and even online the earliest ticket is still in Dec.

I was so annoyed and only took a picture that's on display........ :(

Unregistered

OMG, it's expensive.

Unregistered

First, Happy Easter everyone..
Yea, Easter IS the biggest celebration for any Christian coz it brings back the meaning of being one and reminds us of how Jesus died on the cross for us.. all that suffering...

Second, Da Vinci Code is a dumb movie who although was partially based on facts, twisted it all to make it seem like that(the meaning behind the movie). I'm pretty sure it's a counter for Passion of the Christ as it was such a good movie and reinstated many Christian's faith.. and even made some new ones while da vinci stumbled others...

Third... I studied about his painting once.. well.. more like just touched the surface about the painting. Apparently it had loads of meaning behind it... Strongly implying the trinity... =) I would have paid RM100 to see it life too.. XD

I think Kenny gets special privelages to take pictures =.=

Unregistered

y0!

That's cool!!!

I wish i was there!

Unregistered

Hey Kenny,

8Euros, but I think its worth it. I went as well, and had a good time learning about the history, even if I don't believe in Jesus.

Anyhow... How come you managed to get shots? They told me to put the camera away. Pfft!

Unregistered

Jamilah Subramaniam , from your name i believe you are from some foreign religion ya.?

Maybe Jesus could be blinded by flash, maybe he hired spies.
At least, The Christ in christianity has the courage to show his face, and to be portayed on pictures as memorable to all his followers around the world
Not like someone who, couldn't even show his face to the world. remember the comic artists case? zz

Unregistered

I saw this also, nice bit of painting by Leo. But did you know there's another painting on the opposite site of the room? That one is pretty good also.

Unregistered

Suddenly God the Omnipresent becomes God the exclusive to a selected few... Haih...

Unregistered

^^

and your point is?

Unregistered

the painting of The Last Supper actually disturbs me.

Unregistered

damm !! You are so lucky. I was there in June last year,took 30 minutes train and like walked for a out 20 minutes to see the last supper ,..but i couldnt lay my hands on the ticket !!! Was so frustrated. Anyway managed to visit the cathederal next to 'The last supper'.....

Duomo was nice, yes I agree. You never visit Galleria Emmanuelle ?? Nest to Doumo only ?

Unregistered

JESUS was born specifically to Die that we be Forgiven. His Rising from the Dead prooved Immortality of our Spirit. Humans highest form of intelligence is both a Blessing and a Curse, because it naturally gravitates to PLEASURE, whatever form that takes. Twisted perversion too often.
Da Vinci Code is a Fictional Story woven around Historical FACTs.
TESTAMENTS in the Holy Scriptures are survivors of Early Christian Zealoted CENSORSHIP to preserve Patriarchial supremacy concentrating on FAITH & OBEDIENCE.
Recently discovered Scrolls in EGYPT PROOVE that there were many other Legitimate TESTAMENTS, and that Mary Magdaline or Mary of Magdalla was indeed JESUS' Favourite Desciple because she Understood his Doctrine Best, and there were Testaments bearing her name. There were also many other Women among his desciples.
Hopefully, some revelations of what the early church destroyed might come to Light as EGYPT has very recently Freed COPTIC CHRISTIANS from forced ISLAMISATION. COPTICS ascribe to GNOSTIC Testaments, a Doctrine of FAITH & WISDOM. Some Scholars attest that Mary Magdaline incorporated Both Doctrines: FAITH, OBEDIENCE & WISDOM, which was in conflict with Roman Politics of Control through OBEDIENCE.
Scholars also attest that "To the Best of Their Knowledge, Jesus was not Married, but if he ever was Mary Magdaline would most likely have been the One".
As a CHRISTIAN, whether JESUS was married or not, in no way Advances or Diminishes his PROPHETIC Status and Doctrine of INCLUSION for All of HUMANITY.
Just sharing what little I've learnt.

Unregistered

a celebration of the risen christ =)

Unregistered

still doesn't beat the 30Euros gondola ride...

Unregistered

i spent 50€ per person for gondola ride, but worth it. i miss italy.

Unregistered

jesus freaks...out in the streets....handing tickets out for god.....

Unregistered

If Jesus is a paranoid and spied on his disciples, then why do you think he would walk into the trap knowingly?[assuming he's an ordinary man] Use your common sense please. That's what your left brain's for.

Unregistered

Gosh.. It's amazing how people react when it comes to religion. :) Before anybody starts to spam me, I'm not an anti-christ and I'm not making fun of anybody. :)

Unregistered

Lord Jesus didn't walking into any trap. This plan to die for the human race was decided long before the foundation of the earth.

Unregistered

I think most of the comments are just going off topic with the mere linking of religion. Why all these arguments when it isn't what Kenny's focusing?

Unregistered

I don't understand why you guys are making a big deal outta this post. Its just a comment on the price! And I'm a strong Christian, and I sure don't see how this is anti-Christ in any way. Stop being holier-than-thou and freaking ppl out!

Unregistered

How did you manage to take photos of the Last Supper and David??? I tried so hard to secretly take photos but still got caught :S

Unregistered

8euros? dun rmbr how much more i paid xtra for the AUDIO guide. the women sounded as id she was dozing off and was speaking the italiano-ingris.

but it was v cool to c that... should have done more research on it b4 seeing it.

it was juz by luck they had extra tickets. normally it fully booked unless some ppl burn their tickets or the contract-agency X finish their quota.

look carefully on the postcard or online pics, u can see extra faces!!! really!

apparently some scientist somehow manage to find a music piece in this pic

Unregistered

I love Satan.
