Andy Lau

This is a little late, but better late than never. 🙂

I saw this poster promoting Andy Lau’s Vision Tour concert plastered all over KL the last time I was there. The first time I saw it, I can’t help but to have this feeling of deja vu. Haven’t I seen this somewhere? It looked so familiar. I knew I’ve seen this before, but when exactly did I see it, and where?
So last night, I was walking around the cinemas when all of the sudden, it hit me.


Dammit Andy Lau, I should’ve known. You ripped off Chicken Little! 😉

(This is a blog-vertorial)
I’ve been flying around a lot lately. And if you’re like me, you’ll realise that there’s the so many flight operators in the market right now, and searching for the right airline to bring your from A to B is complicated enough to give you air-sickness even before you board the plane.

It wasn’t used to be that difficult. Last time, if I want to go from, say, Singapore to Bangkok, all I gotta do is ring up my travel agent and they’ll tell me which day, what time and how much.
That was when MAS and the other big players used to rule the skies lah. Nowadays, you got AirAsia lor, JetStar lor, ValueAir lor, TigerAir lor, SuperMan lor, all vying to get a piece of the sky. You call your travel agent also no use because when they hear the names of these low-cost airlines they also act blur like sotong.

Reason why AirAsia flights are always delayed.

Fact is, most low-cost airlines don’t pay much commission to travel agents because they wanna cut corners like taking out the reclining feature from your seats.
If you wanna get the absolute best airfares, you gotta do-it-yourself. That means, searching hundred over websites to find that right flight ,at that suitable schedule, at that price you’re willing to pay.

Enter, an online travel search engine. is great. It’s like the Google for airfares. It searches info from traditional airlines, low-cost airlines, online travel agencies, etc and displays the findings all consolidated in one site.

You see their search box on the sidebar of all the time. It’s easy! You enter your flight details, wait a few seconds, and then out poops a list of all available flights along with how much moolah it’s gonna cost you to get there. is the main advertiser on and has been that way since October last year. Writing on is nice though sometimes stressful and costly affair, so it’s great to have them help offset that.

I recently met up with the CTO of Gunesh Raj over coffee when I was in KL. This is one young, talented yet humble Kuching boy who’s made it big on the Internet and personally, I just enjoy seeing a fellow Kuching-nite shining bright. On top of advertising on, Gunesh and I talked about the possibility of offering readers something so major, no other blogsites have done it before. I can’t say anything before the deal is finalised, so you guys just have to keep an eye out for that. 😉
Thanks for the coffee, Gunesh!

Damai Lagoon

Nicole has been in Kuching since last Wednesday. I brought her here after our new year celebrations in KL. We caught up with some old friends and spent some time together before she flies back to Perth tomorrow night. It’ll be another 11 months before we see each other again.

Just yesterday we drove down to the idylic resort of Damai Lagoon at Santubong, about 45 minutes away from Kuching city for a bit of beachside R&R.

The resort is set amid acres of landscaped garden and there’s a huge beautifully-decorated pool situated just next to the beach. The hotel’s brochure said this is the largest lagoon-shaped pool in Sarawak (as opposed to those boring rectangularly-shaped Olympic pools).

Then again, this is probably the only lagoon-shaped pool in the whole of Sarawak. Compared to Sunway Lagoon in KL, it’s actually kinda sad.

There’s actually not much else to do at Damai Lagoon apart from swimming, walking by the beach and admiring the sunset. It’s just a calm, quiet and peaceful place to get away from the city to wind down and relax. Even the seabreeze itself is strangely hypnotising.
I was looking to try some water sports, but the waves were a little strong this Monsoon season.
Then I spotted these massage beds lying by the poolside.

Nothing like a good massage to round up the holiday. I was about to call Nicole over, until I read the fine print.

Eww… Why would I pay to let some other men touch me?
I’m not homophobic but I’m damn scared of letting other men touch me ok. Handshakes and buddy-buddy hugs are perfeclty fine, but I freak out big time if a guy is about to massage me or touch whichever one of my body parts sensually.
I mean, what if he got a hard-on while doing it? What am I gonna do?

Mannn… wouldn’t go nude even if you pay me.
Then again, what does going nude during a massage have anything to do with preserving a country’s customs and heritage? Odd.

AirAsia Airbus A320 Review

So while MAS Airlines is still debating whether to sell their building or their RM1.5 million paintings to cover their losses, AirAsia is making a proverbial killing in the Malaysian domestic flight market right now. Look at them, they’d just given out 2 million free tickets and they’re still sitting there twiddling their thumbs grinning happily.

AirAsia is doing so well in fact, that Tony Fernandes just ordered 100 of those sweet new Airbus A320s, the first of which arrived early last month. I was one of the lucky few who managed to test-ride this month-old baby during my trip from Kuching to KL last week. And I can tell ya, low-cost airlines never looked so good.

Yes, I’m fully aware that Indian uncle in front spotted me with my camera and nonchalantly struck a cool pose. 😉

Walking into the A320 is like getting into your dad’s brand new car. The interior of the aircraft was wide and bright and the scent of leather still lingered fresh in the air. If not for the signature black leather seats and the bright red uniforms of the aircrew, you’d be forgiven for thinking that you’d just walked into a luxurious MAS flight.

I wonder if they have Solitaire installed in this baby.

The first thing that caught my attention during my entrance was this cool sophisticated-looking touchscreen LCD control panel. I don’t know what it does. I’m really tempted to try but I don’t think I’m ready to insert myself into my own episode of Lost. Yet.

“Ok, who stuck their pens in the toilet bowl?”

Midway through the journey, the flight attendants did a sales pitch for AirAsia merchandise. Among the few of them, there’s the usual toy aircrafts, keychains, oversized pens, and – get this – AirAsia red and black t-shirts!

Quick, get your limited edition AirAsia T-shirt for RM50!

I don’t get it. I can understand if people wanna get Manchester United jerseys, or even Hard Rock Cafe T-shirts. But why would anyone wanna buy AirAsia T-shirts? To dress up as flight attendants? Wear them to the next Halloween party? What next? T-shirts from Ah Suan Chicken Rice?

The best thing about the A320s is obviously the seats. It’s even better than the seats on Malaysia Airlines. With the old Boeing 737, there’s not a lot of room to manoeuvre your legs once plonked your ass on the crappy seats. But the seats in the new Airbus A320 are so darn spacious, even the most materialistic girlfriend in the world won’t realise her stingy bastard of a boyfriend were taking her on some cheap budget airline trip.
The seats really are THAT good.

AirAsia is experimenting their new seatbelt system, featuring a severed ghost arm

One caveat though.
I didn’t sleep too well the night before, so a few minutes later in the air I was dying for some quiet shut-eye. I looked to the left, I looked to my right. Something’s not quite right…

It’s gone! They’ve removed it! How could they?!
I ended up sleeping on the flight in tight upright position. Trust me, it’s NOT the most comfortable position to sleep in. I woke up 2 hours later with a grumpy mood and a royal pain in the neck.
The new planes are real sexy, but dammit AirAsia. Why didn’t you at least build a basic reclining feature onto your seats? 🙁

AirAsia. Now Everyone Can Fly™, But No One Can Recline.

Today, Turns One

It’s‘s 1 year old birthday!
Not like anyone should care, really. 😉 But it’s my birthday and I can cry I want to.

I registered “” on the 1st January 2005 and initally it was hosted on the cheap $3.95 per month servers, running content management system Movabletype as its backbone. Soon afterwards, tag-board (Chatterbox) was installed, adding much life and interactivity on the website.
By April 2005, after experiencing one too many downtimes and bandwidth overshots, it became clear that has outgrown it’s old host and I made the much delayed decision to migrate to the very reliable Site5 servers which I faithfully stayed with until today. By November 2005, plagued once again by extreme bandwidth overshots on, I launched as a sister site to host huge bandwidth-eating audio and video files, and hopefully putting an end to my server nightmares.

The decision to start was made on an impulse and never had I imagined that it would become as popular as it is today. Throughout it’s existence I have made a lot of wrong decisions and, whether intentionally or unintentionally, made a few enemies and offended many people in the process. However, these are nothing compared to the many fruitful friendships I’ve established across Kuching, KL and Singapore as a result of my blog. That, in itself, is a priceless gift that no one can take away from me.
What is your favourite KFC moment?
For me, the following entries represent the best (and worst) of in 2005.

Top 4 Most Impactful Entries of 2005
April 01, 2005 –April Fool’s: Making Fun of Myself
Introducing Kimberlycun, owner of Malaysia’s smoothest pair of legs, and coincidentally the author of that fantastic blog with a fantastic title, “Narcissism Is Necessary”.

Introducing… my legs.

I wrote this entry shortly after I joined Project Petaling Street and became fascinated by the popularity of some bloggers. was relatively unknown back then.
A lot of people hailed this entry its turning point (for better or worse). It’s kinda hard to argue with the facts. The hit counters shot from mere hundreds to thousands after Dr Liew and Mr Miyagi linked to me. This started a snowball effect that lasted several months.
Kinda amazing when you think I was just acting very stupid in that entry.

May 24, 2005 – XiaXue And I Are Getting Married!
Meet our future daughter, Wenny Sia.
Of the five bloggers I parodied in the April’s Fool entry, The Hustler Diaries became defunct, HB ended up becoming my occasional drinking buddy, Kimberlycun and I fell out for some absurd reasons, Jeff Ooi and I found new respect for each other, and Xiaxue proposed to me (fake one lah).
Another stupid entry, but when I think about it, I think this exchange kinda marks the start of some tight Malaysia-Singapore “cross-blogospherical” interactions.

June 14, 2005 – Datuknametoolongitis
How bad can this get? I thought those were the worst, I have no idea.
Until I came face to face… with The Mother of All Long Roundabout Names.


DOUBLE the “Datuk”, DOUBLE the “Abang Haji”, DOUBLE THE OOMPH!!!

The popularity of this entry on Kuching’s notoriously long road names is quite unexpected. I was merely writing about the culture shock I experienced when I returned home. A few weeks later, I heard rumours of it being circulated via forwarded e-mails, all the way to the desks of StarMetro in KL and The New Paper in Singapore.
6 months later, StarMetro contacted me and I agreed to let them publish the entry (for an agreed fee of course). Coincidentally, the nephew of one of the Datuks “featured” felt insulted, flew in a rage and wrote a scathing message against me in the notorious-for-flames Sarawaktalk forum. Ouch. When I wrote it, who would’ve thought something like this could’ve happened eh?

August 03, 2005 – Kenny Sia Replies To Furong Jiejie
The worst thing is, Furong Jiejie wants ME to print out this picture and hang it over my bed tonight.

Excuse me while I vomit my dinner out.
I don’t know what to say.
Thank you Furong Jiejie for your “sexy picture”.
But I’d rather hang this picture over my bed tonight instead.

Ericka told me someone at her workplace liked this entry so much, he bloody printed out THAT Furong Jiejie photo and put up on his partition wall. That freak!
Top 4 Most Offensive Entries of 2005
I’m no angel and I don’t profess myself to be one. I want this blog to be the most honest thing I have ever done in my entire life. Sometimes I’m brash, sometimes I’m careless, sometimes I hurt people’s feelings.
Two things usually happen from then on. If I realise I did something wrong, I WILL retract my comment and I WILL sincerely apologise. I’ve done it before. It’s not that hard.
BUT. If I think people are being unreasonable, I will stand by my stance and people are simply gonna have to accept that that’s the way I am. Call me stubborn, call me egotistical. At least I’m HONEST. And don’t give me that “As Malaysia’s top blogger you must do this and that” bullshit. I take none of that crap.

July 19, 2005 – The Siarong Party Girl Controversy
A disgusting and shameful act or a naughty but hedonistic fun? No one got hurt right?

September 27, 2005 – In The Media And My So-Called “Fame”
Yea, I went too far that time.

November 12, 2005 – Singapore Very Safe One

This one I was being careless. Sorry.

December 20, 2005 – “Merry Christmas” Is Another Way Of Saying Screw You
Everyone ignored the rest of that entry because of that ONE sentence that I wrote. *groan*
Top 4 Entries I Used To Be Able To Write, But Not Anymore
What initially started out as a website to share my thoughts and interests with a few of mine like-minded friends (thanks Kim and Irene), eventually grew into an audience that includes not only my group of friends, but long-lost friends, families, strangers, cousins, uncles, ex-crushes, ex-colleagues, current colleages, business associates, my ex-boss, former highschool teachers, magazine editors, newspaper editors, the police, the Home Ministry, politicians, government officials, etc.
The reactions people who knew me in real life have when they first discover my blog was usually one of surprise and disappointment. They’re upset that they believe I’d tainted my image with what I write on my blog. I admit, I think it’s pretty difficult for them to swallow the fact that Kenny, who’s usually pretty quiet and decent in real life, would touch on the topics I did on my blog. Forgive me people, just because I don’t talk about these topics in real life doesn’t mean I don’t think about them.
Regardless, I’ve already toned down A LOT of my act and chances are, you won’t see topics like these anymore. It’s unfortunate but it has to be done. Here are top 4 of my favourite entries that I enjoyed writing, but can no longer do so because of “the image” I had to protect.

January 08, 2005 – United Colors of Benetton Condoms
UCB Condom on rack
Ever seen a designer-brand condom?

February 17, 2005 – Ansell vibe4u Vibrating Condom Review
Ansell vibe4u Vibrating Condom - Front
Whose kind of sick idea was this?

April 19, 2005 – The Hustlergate Scandal
One of the biggest controversies to rock the Malaysian blogosphere last year, which resulted in the downward spiral and the eventual blogicide of one of our erotic bloggers.

June 13, 2005 – The Sarong Party Girl Controversy
One of the biggest controversies to rock the Singaporean blogosphere last year, which resulted in the rapid ascension to fame and the eventual fortune of one of their erotic bloggers.
Top 4 Emo Posts of 2005
Because I am human and I have feelings too.
May 05, 2005 – The Last 25 Hours
I wrote this because I want to forever remember how I felt during that day.
May 07, 2005 – Four Days and a Funeral
I hit the absolute lowest point in my entire life.
August 20, 2005 – I Want To Go Back To Perth

Wondering if I have made the right decision.
September 23, 2005 – Ayam That Guy
A meme turned emotional.
Top 4 Hate Comments of 2005
Hate comments and blogs are made for each other. In fact, I don’t think anyone should start a blog if they cannot be prepared to handle hate comments.
Over the past one year, I’ve received so many hate comments that honestly, I’m pretty much immune to it already. I can’t change people say about me but I can change the way I react to it. Besides, these days people just nitpick at every single thing they can. Here are the 4 most absurd hate comments I’ve received.

“You’re one of those with self-given Christian names I see. Pathetic.”

~ bodco, in Kuching Parking 101, who thought it’s pathetic that my parent-given name ‘Kenny’ wasn’t printed on my driver’s license.

8 months old

“Fuck you lah Kenny,
She is just a little baby and you have to do this to her just so that you can satisfy your egoistic and selfish to attract more readers??? Ever thought about how she would feel when she’s older? How would you feel if your uncle or somebody had taken a picture of you when you were a baby showing your ku ku to the rest of the world so that he can juice up his personal website? “

~ Nick, in Pinku, who thinks a baby’s innocent middle finger is the equivalent of the male penis.

“His act really sia soi bloggers from Sarawak. I got to voice this out as no one would like to talk about KennySia bad stuff or else kenak shoot by him till very the bad. This is true wad. Is he consider as a part of Malaysia Blogosphere ? From my opinion, NO. He is somoene who likes to “hu” the balls and the papaya of the Singaporean famous bloggers.”

~ “kcyap” Justin Yap, in his blog, a fellow Kuchingnite not too happy about my association with bloggers from Singapore.

“OMG.. i don’t comment generally.. but my first thoughts are the video of the CHILD going down the water slide.. is that a bit paedophilic or what?! Please take it off it’s disturbing.. point made :-)”

~ Veus, in When A Good Layout Isn’t Exactly Important, who called me paedophile when all I did was showing animations of little girls in one-piece bathers going down the waterslide.
Funny how in that same entry I had the music video of Crazy Frog with his exposed dick playing, and yet she didn’t accuse me of being a perverted crazy gay frog assbanger.
For what it’s worth, the journey has been wild but fun, and I can only thank you guys for joining in for the ride. Thanks for the support. As corny as it sounds, without you the readers, will be nothing but empty words.
Here’s to a fantastic year it was and a great year ahead of us. Cheers!

Made-In-Malaysia Robot

This is bad. This is real bad.

Am I the only one feeling slightly perturbed by this 10-foot-tall Malaysian-made robot on display right now at the KLCC LRT station?

Our robot seems perfectly content speaking fluent Bahasa Melayu in his mechanised accent, educating our little kids about the dangers of Aedes mosquitoes and such, while at the same time moving (or rather, jerking) his arms and torso wildly like only a mechanical robot with chronic rheumatism can.

Never mind the flashing red Darth Vader eyes and mouth that looks like a bird’s beak. Never mind even the fact that he has bloody LOUDSPEAKERS FOR BOOBS!
Hey, after all, I’ve met girls with tits so big, they look like they’re talking to me half the time. Loudpeakers for boobs is NOTHING.
What disturbed me was this.

That bloody perverted robot has a friggin LCD MONITOR hanging out of his pelvis as his dick!
The worst part is, all these while little kids were looking at the monitor thinking they’ve learnt something new about Aedes, when in fact they were STARING AT HIS ROBO-MOJO.

New Year’s Eve Celebration in KL

Happy 2006 boys and girls, and greetings from KL!
Believe it or not, this is the actually first time I’ve welcomed the new year in a city that’s NOT Kuching or Perth. What a culture shock it was.

This is the scene at Bukit Bintang at just 9:30pm on the last day of 2005. It was nothing short of chaotic madness. The entire city was literally SWAMPED by humans!
People spraying each other with cans and cans of fake snow and party strings! I honestly wonder what’s so fun with those things. Can someone please enlighten me?

Sea of human heads. Here. There. EVERYWHERE.

Bukit Bintang wasn’t my kinda place. I ventured out to KLCC Park after dropping my stuff off at the hotel.
There was a security alert at the US Embassy in Jalan Ampang earlier, so I’d expect the crowd to be less in that area.

WRONG. KLCC Park was just as well filled to the BRIM with humans, humans and more humans. They’ve even lined nicely up along the poolside. How cute.
Where the heck did all these people come from?

Maybe they’ve all come to see Adam from 8TV playing host that night.
Being new year’s eve, there’s no shortage of illegal traders freeloaders appearing between every corner and crease of KL, selling everything from drinks…

To lok loks

To plastic trumpets…

To babies…

Wait a minute. Why would someone sell baby dolls by the roadside? Weird.

Despite the security scare, the only thing that exploded that evening was the skies.

Next stop, Zouk KL for music and drinks!

Crap, just ONE HOUR into 2006 and already I’ve broken my new year’s resolution.

The theme for the night was “I *heart* NYE”.
I know you *heart* NYE, but do you *heart* KENNY?

Looks like the illegal roadside traders weren’t the only freeloaders here. The entrance charges were insane!

Of course, I managed to freeload off Zouk Ambassador Laineylashes and got in for free. Thanks Elaine!

Recharge was giving out freebies throughout the night. It looked suspiciously like Salem Light boxes, except the contents were:

Kids’ toys.
From left to right, it’s a party popper, this… some sort of contraption to make snappy sounds, a baton used for hitting people, a whistle and two glowsticks. All designed to irritate and torture my poor soul.

Dave Seaman? Isn’t he the goalkeeper for England? What da heck is he doing here? England catch no ball, go become DJ kah?

Anyway, I was walking back to Bukit Bintang when I saw the aftermath of the new year’s eve party. It wasn’t a pretty sight, literally.

Way to go, guys. Start the new year by dumping your junk on the roadside instead of INTO the rubbish bins.
Despite that, I have a feeling that this year will be better than the last. Let’s hope it’s not just a feeling, but a reality.
Happy New Year, everyone!
