Short Talk:

Terrorists bombed Bali in 2002. 3 years later, terrorists bombed Bali again in 2005.

This year in 2008 and I am in Bali. I think I'm gonna have a blast.

The 'Eat A Chip Like Kenny Sia' Contest

The Mister Potato TV ad I've been waiting for has finally gone to air.

To celebrate my glorious three seconds worth of appearance on national TV acting like a giant oversized dolphin, Mister Potato is giving away a chance for one lucky kennysia.com reader and a friend to win and all-expense paid trip to Bangkok.

But this ain't your typical boring free trip giveaway.

Because on top of a trip for two to Bangkok, there's also a special bonus added to this prize package.

You see, we are not gonna just put you on an airplane, jet you out and throw you into some dingy hotel in some God forsaken corner of Bangkok for 4 days. To fully savour the best of South-East Asia's mecca of shopping, spa, food, culture and nightlife, you're gonna need someone knowledgable to show you around Bangkok.

Which is why we have arranged for tour guide to not only accompany you on this fantastic journey, your tour guide will personally ensure that you do have a whale of a time there as well.

Alas, you can't just have any tour guide. You need a tour guide that knows Bangkok intimately. So intimate, that he'd probably soaked himself for 3 hours in Bangkok river before just to tell you how it felt like.

That tour guide is of course none other than...



ME!

Yes, apparently Kenny Sia has turned into a contest prize.

If you win this contest, you and a friend could win a trip to Bangkok. And I, the poo-water-swimming potato-chip-eating dolphin will be there to act as your personal tour guide.

Best of all, this trip is all expense paid thanks to Mister Potato. And heck, we'll even give you some pocket money for shopping at Chatuchak Weekend Market.

In total, this prize package is worth RM5,000. And with me as your guide, I promise you it will be one holiday unlike any other.

How do you win this prize?

All you gotta do is upload a picture imitating me eating a Mister Potato chip like this.

This contest is open exclusively to kennysia.com readers.

Your photo doesn't necessarily have to be yourself eating the Mister Potato chip. It could be a human, an animal or an inanimate object. It doesn't matter. If you could con your 5-year-old nephew into doing this, even better.

The most important thing is that your photo has to be creative and funny.

The Mister Potato packaging must clearly be visible, and you must upload the photo using the form below or e-mail it to me at contest@kennysia.com before 11:59pm on the 8 June 15 June.

Of course, you must agree to terms and conditions, judges decisions are final and all the legal bla-bla-blas apply.

Hey, the City of Angels awaits the winner. ;)

Even so very funny contest. Might just join for the fun of it.

The future winner can consider oneself as very fortunate to be allowed to put up with you.

Unregistered

Awesome! trip to Bangkok! time to snap on

Unregistered

Oh man, I bet you're going to have a load of overseas readers wishing they were eligible for this. Me being one of them. :(

You should also host a self-judged for-fun category for the non-eligible people if you ask me, surely they'd be some people willing to submit pictures just for the fun of it, too!

Either way, looking forward to seeing the winning one, if you put it up! :D

Unregistered

hey..kenny..why dont u just post sumthing @ special event of sarawak, such as gawai dayak in ur blog?comon man...its a very interesting story to b shared in here..why owest others people's place..why not ur own place..isk...

Unregistered

Dear Kenny,

I respect you a lot, and still do, but I think the wording of your short talk is rather ill judged - not as you intended it, I think. Off course, as usual, you creatively play with semantics of the meaning 'bomb', but if you do read again what you wrote, you'll come to realize it kind of leaves a bad taste. Yes, it's a form of black humour, but one that isn't self-reflexive of its disturbing quality. Off course, one could argue for the subversive element of humour, which overturns and 'transform' the situation to which it is employed, but far from doing so in this case, the humour horrifies precisely because it does not negate the very real horror of the bombing for many Australians. The 'insistent' repetition of the 3 year intervals acts as a traumatic reminder that lingers on the psyche of people who have lost their loved ones there. If you had wrote: 'Terrorists bombed Bali in 2005, but I'm going there to have a blast' would mean a completely different thing. Thought that I might just let you know. Cheers.

Unregistered

wow, thats really nice. so tempting!

Unregistered

Yay! I love contest! Only thing to do is win it. Lol...

I'm in Kenny. ;)

Unregistered

This contest is so UNFAIR.....only for Malaysians living in Malaysia :-(
Anyway, I'm screwed...

Unregistered

Boooo. We should petition for a contest for the Malaysians outside Malaysia. =D
What if you're out of Malaysia, but know that you'll be back for holidays, so, you submit the picture anyway...? Hehe. Just a thought.

Unregistered

T_T

Unregistered

I find this seriously disturbing. But that's just me :p

Unregistered

I'm sorry but the City of Angels is Los Angeles, not Bangkok. There can only be one, and its LA.

Unregistered

Also before any idiot points it out, yes, I do know the official name for Bangkok is "Krung Thep Maha Nakhon" or City of Angels. Whatever. I still don't care.

Unregistered

Oh man...im craving for the chips now!!

Unregistered

the T&C is hilarious! .. =)

Unregistered

Unregistered

Great! I going to join this and buy mister potato first!!

Unregistered

Unregistered

wuwuwu.. i'm also a kennysia reader woot !!

Unregistered

Aw...I'm going to be so jealous of the winner and his/her friend. :(

Unregistered

Winners will be chosen based on how creative and or the submission is.

Both myself and a representative of Mister Potato will be the judge for this contest. Our decisions are final.


**omg** trust me, you don't hv to be creative to take part in this contest.kenny will choose the hottest chicks as the winner...noob!

Unregistered

Yes. I am bored. I did read the fine prints, didn't I?

And gosh...this is truly WEIRD. The prize isn't that interesting at first...until you, Kenny, being the tour guide. Damn! It is really weird, coz knowing that actually made me feel like taking part. @_@

I think I'm too bored.

Unregistered

Kenny will choose the hottest chick as the winner?

The person/animal/object/whatever in the most creative picture may not be the participant lah! How will he know the chick hot or not?

Unregistered

oh man i can win this! i have so many ideas for this!

but not in msia at d mo, DAMN!

why lah kenny why! ;P

Unregistered

ur blog had a coffeeshop where people dunno-for-what-reason like to chit chat there, making readers unable to post some comments to you at all. I thought a chatbox is for readers to communicate with you? Then there are people who really got nothing better to do, fighting to post the first comment on your blog with this word : "FIRST!".
what's going on with your blog nowadays??

Unregistered

any limits on how many entry per person??

Unregistered

Let me just predict: The winner is going to be a girl!
Kenny will dig pu$$ies anytime.

Unregistered

Bangkok, here i come!
