Short Talk:

I have almost completely given away all 44 of my match tickets to watch Chelsea FC vs Malaysia. Winners will be contacted soon. But if you missed out, don't fret. There are still many other bloggers giving tickets away if you ask them really nicely and say "please."

Or in Cheesie's case, say "cheese!"

How People 'Eat A Chip like Kenny Sia'

I am constantly amazed by the creativity of kennysia.com readers.

A few months ago, I found myself eating potato chips, soaking in toilet waste-infused river water, filming for a TV commercial that was to be on broadcasted on television screens across Malaysia. It was the first time ever a company has engaged a Malaysian blogger to appear in their TV ad, and I am super honoured to be part of that.

Now, as cliche as it may sound, kennysia.com is nothing without the readers.

Which is why to celebrate my 3 seconds of fame on TV, I pitched an idea to Mister Potato for a very special online contest to reward you, my readers.

Three weeks ago, I put the call out to my kennysia.com readers to take part in the 'Eat A Chip Like Kenny Sia' contest. The grand prize was:

(1) A holiday for two to Bangkok
(2) Me as your personal tour guide
(3) A generous amount of shopping money
(4) An everlasting friendship with Kenny Sia

Yes, this is a contest like no other, because this one has my friendship on the booty as the big prize.

To take part in the contest, all that needs to be done is to take a photo of yourself imitating my part in the TV ad.

The contest has ended and the response was jaw-droppingly overwhelming.

I was expecting just a simple "jump and bite" picture.

Something like this.

Instead, what I got in my inbox was utter shock and horror. ;) The extent that people go to abuse someone just to win themselves a free trip to Bangkok is just ridiculous.

First there was Rachel Liew's sister abuse.

Save petrol, use Mister Potato

Then there was Tee Kean Lam's baby abuse.

Jesselyn Lam brought out her tortoise to her backyard to abuse.

Her tortoise bears an uncanny resemblance to Kenny

Loh Chan Wai carved out a potato, stick some eyes onto it and abuse.

And JC Veaghen took out her Spongebob plush toy to abuse.

Then there were many good ones who took the slightly more "unconventional" approach.

Susan Low's baby girl is too cute not to post up.

Fiona Lim thought Mister Potato was a Mexican singer and dressed up as one

Pirated version of Mister Potato

Douglas Lim got caught with his "Kenny Sia" expression when he violated the fundamental rule of cleanliness in his science laboratory.

Joshua Chng gave his boy Mister Potato chips as motivation to do sit-ups.

Rachel Beh made good use of her double-taping skills to create this Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon Kung Fu chip moment.

Then there's one who thought all I wanted was a hot chick as my travel companion.

Instead of sending me a photo of her eating Mister Potato, she sent me a photo of herself posing like this.

Trust me, I was very tempted to just put her through as the winner.

There were many very good entries, and I had a difficult time short-listing those few for the sponsor.

Tong Ching Yee's "Spud Lovers"

I'm sure the head honchos at Mister Potato knew the stakes was high. They probably sat down in one of their top level board meetings (along with their Mexican-looking moustached mascot), examining every single photo, until they eventually chose one person as the winner.

Any the winner is...



Joshua Chng with his Mister Potato motivational sit up photo!

Congratulations! Joshua will now get to bring a friend to travel with me on an all-expense paid trip to Bangkok, Thailand!

For all the short-listed entries of the 'Eat A Chip Like Kenny Sia' contest, go to the Mister Potato website and click on Mister Potato Goodies

WY Leong's Pac Chip

As much as I appreciate the contribution of all readers, unfortunately there is room for only one winner.

There were many who went through extreme lengths taking part in this contest but didn't managed get anything.

Like Yee Bing, who decided to eat the chip from...



...somebody's feet.

Sorry you didn't win.

I love the Kung Fu chips idea!!!! Everyone's so creative though =) Congrates to the winner!

Unregistered

really creative people around nowadays

Unregistered

so funny.........

Unregistered

Wow.. the winner quite unimpressive compared to the kungfu one. She has a better picture and it's creative. Well, I guess the organisers decided to give to the Sit-up guy cause the background looks too much like a dump to be a house. Oh well, for CHARITY.

Unregistered

The hell man? The mexican wannabe deserved to win! Don't just give up the prize to something you can relate to or aspire to(which I assume is to get fit by doing situps?)

Unregistered

Wow.. Impressed man.

Unregistered

wasai! my baby abuse doesn't win???
mine is originally without photoshop, i'm glad the winner is base on creativity on capturing photo, not using photoshop.
congrats to joshua, and weldone kenny.

Tee Kean Lam.

Joshuo wins for a reason. That is, there's no photoshop editing what so ever involved! Not even any make up or special attire...

Well done, Kenny, this is one good post. :-)

Unregistered

lolS>..the kid was cute...and using the chips as sit up bait is pretty neat idea...^^ congrats to the lil kid..~~~~ he gets to go to bangkok to bang some cock!!! WHOOHOOO!!!!

Unregistered

Hey dude, make sure sixthseal does not fake/cheat the 26.2 to win my USD 100 challenge.

Unregistered

susaw low's daughter is so cute. Perhaps, she should win.

Unregistered

Eh ! can put up a place and post up all the pics posted to let us all see..

i'm sure everyone wants to see everybody's creative idea.

Unregistered

really tough luck. plain idea gets to win but not those who were so much more creative.

Besides, isnt it a silly idea to want to get fit (by doing sit-ups) AND YET EATING FATTENING UNHEALTHY CHIPS????

Unregistered

I wanted so so so so so badly to win. Haha. But I didnt. Congrats to the winner though. =)

Unregistered

Wow.... everyone seems so creative!!! ^_^

Unregistered

the reason why Josh won was because it was a good idea for their next TV advert

so they sponsor him to go Bangkok while they work on their next Mr potato advert which was what Josh was doing , pretty creative I must say ;)

Unregistered

swt....wats so special abt the winner's pic...like dad aso can win....
mister potato should offer some consolation prizes...or prizes for those who r creative....

Unregistered

wow Kenny...u sure did tap into the creative side of people!

great job for all the pix submission! Maybe Kenny can be more generous next time and extend the winners to maybe 5, 20 or a plane-load of winners.. =)

Unregistered

Those entries are so creative!

Too bad you could only choose one winner! :(

Unregistered

I think Mr Douglas Lim should be the winner, showing how desperate he is for Mister Potato despite the lab rules.

Unregistered

it really shows how interesting and exciting the entries of malaysians are. we're a creative bunch no doubt... congrats joshua. now you get to eat more chips with kenny

Unregistered
