Shining Moments

My shining moments are…

When you played hide-and-seek with me in the supermarket, and cried when you couldn’t find me.

When you dressed up as “Mei Ling”, or do those ridiculously stupid bo liao things normal people wouldn’t do.

When you told me you want to be there when I make things right.

When I put the regulator in my mouth and breathed underwater for the first time.

When we reached the pinnacle of Mt Kinabalu after battling rain, cold, altitude sickness and a badly sprained ankle.

When you told me you were proud of me, and meant it.

Love. Friendship. Passion. Hope. Dreams. Family. These are the shining moments of my life.

What are your shining moments?

LG Shine Fashion Phone

We take a break from our daily adventures on to bring to you this special message from our sponsors at LG Mobile.

Say hello to the new LG Shine! 🙂
Following the footsteps of the popular Black Label Series line of fashion phones, this baby is set to get heads turning from the style conscious crowd.

Unlike most phones out there made out of cheap plastic, this silver number is sturdily constructed with stainless steel, which actually feels amazing to hold on my hands. On top of that, its sleek and slim profile is sure to grab the attention it is designed for.

Indeed, the LG Shine is too beautiful to look at. I made the mistake of bringing the phone with me to Penang, and the girls I was travelling with can’t resist just picking it up and playing with it (eventhough they all unanimously hate my ringtone, “Beatbox Acappella”)
You know how sad your life is when your phone received more attention from the females than you do.

The signature attraction of the LG Shine is its eye-catching mirror-like front facing. Beneath this reflective (but easily smudged) surface hides the phone’s LCD screen, much similar to the LG Chocolate.
When the screen is unused you can hold it up and see a faintly distorted reflection of yourself from its casing.

Once you slide it open, this stunner of a phone illuminates itself in all its shining glory. It’s a really cool effect.
I particularly liked the keypad’s striking blue backlights upon the phone’s silver metallic body. The colour combination made the LG Shine look like one helluva futuristic gadget.

The sliding mechanism has certainly improved since the LG Chocolate. This one whips out steadily without the slightest wobble, culminating with a satisfying snap.
Most navigation are done with the multifunctional scroll button located on the top part of the phone. All other keys on the phone are completely flat except for the grooves surrounding it, which are curved to make them look all the more deliciously sexy.

I flipped the phone over to the other side and was greeted with a 2-megapixel camera with auto-focus, featuring lens by Schneider-Kreuznach. Having used a digital camera sporting those German lens before, I can certainly vouch for its quality.
This photo is taken with the LG Shine’s built-in phone camera.

Look at the amount of detail it captured!
Check out my unedited full-resolution test shot here.

Coupled with the huge LCD screen on the phone, the camera function is a real joy to use.
I’m pleasantly surprised to find how well done the phone’s built-in MP3 player is.

Most phones tend to force you to use their own propietary earphones. But LG Shine thoughtfully included an inline MP3 player remote, which you could then attach a pair of high-end earphones to get even better sound quality.
Storage space is not a problem either since it comes with a MicroSD card slot.

The unit I received came along with a 1GB MicroSD card.
Bloody hell, that thing is smaller than a 5 cent coin. Imagine how much pirated MP3 stuff you could load onto it!

Another software I really like is the Document Viewer. It lets you open up Microsoft Word, Excel, Powerpoint and even PDF files right from your phone.
That kinda functionality is almost making this fashion phone into a smartphone.

Unfortunately, this unit I received is a review test set and honestly speaking I’m kinda sad to have to return it to LG so soon.
The LG Shine fashion phone is now available immediately from your local mobile phone stores. Last I checked, the going price for one of these babies is RM1,200 – possibly even lower if you bargain hard.

I say at that price, chances are you’ll be hard-pressed to find another phone that look even half as good as the Shine.

If you wanna know more, go check out LG Shine’s cool website and get yourself a chance to win a holiday for two to Seoul, Korea.

Nuffnang Penang Bloggers Meet @ Food Loft

What do you get when you put 100 bloggers in a room full of free food?

Lots and lots of cameras in action, of course!
The day before the Penang Bridge Marathon, I was invited by Nuffnang to attend their Orient’s Voice North Malaysian Bloggers’ Gathering at the Food Loft, Gurney Plaza.

It was by all measures a resounding success.
I hadn’t been to a large-scale bloggers’ gathering since the Blogger.SG Singapore Bloggers Convention two years ago. As most people following my blog back then would’ve remembered, that event was infamously immortalised by that one boobie-baring incident seen around the world .

You would have thought Malaysians are more tame and more conservative than our Singaporean counterparts. But noooo… In fact, Malaysians are WILDER.
At this bloggers’ gathering, something even better happened.
Much to the delight of all the horny guys in attendance not only were we treated to a set of beautiful naked boobs, we actually had a NAKED WOMAN baring it all inside the restaurant! Just for us. Naked woman you know?!
Warning:If you are easily offended, do not scroll further.

Nah. Naked woman.
Can play violin one somemore. Dun pray pray.

I like big butts and I cannot lie.

*muah* I lub u.

Food Loft is a Marche-like restaurant located on the 4th floor of Gurney Plaza. You’re given a barcode card when you walk in, then you get the chance to walk around the market-like area to see what dishes are available.
When you’re ready to order, just let them scan your card and they’ll bring your food right over to you.

Yes, it’s almost like your local kopitiam food court.
But this one stylo a bit. Because they got sweeping views of the ocean and then got a naked woman in the restaurant.
Does your local kopitiam food court have naked woman?

Due to my limited dietary options pre-marathon, I had the spaghetti marinara. Not the best I’ve tasted, but it was pretty alright.
Too bad not many of us really had time to sit down and enjoy our food anyway. Everyone basically spent the good one hour and a half running around taking photos.

Myself and sexyshortskirt

And photos.

And photos.

And MORE photos.

With nicolekiss.

So much camera flashes until I began losing my sanity.

Next thing I know, I was putting on Nicole’s baby pink jacket.

Pwetty or not? ^_^
Some time during the middle of our shenanigans, I was sat down and interviewed by the charismatic Cedric Ang. Some crazy guy called Daniel Ooi jumped on the opportunity and asked me to contribute my body hair to auction off for charity.
I didn’t wanna do it, but this is for a good cause. So what the heck right?

I don’t know whether to feel sorry for myself or feel more sorry for Nicole.
Especially when it comes to the part where she had to cut off my nose hair.

Nah, can see or not?

Luckily we stopped at just nose hair.
If we cut off anything more than that, you might have to pay money to read

See that look on my face?

The funniest thing happened on the Monday after the Nuffnang Bloggers’ Gathering.
Apparently, my name appeared on national newspaper The Star Metro. No, not for becoming the first overweight person to finish the Penang Bridge Marathon in world record-breaking time.
But for this.

Kenny Sia mobbed by Penang fans!
Pardon me, but when you describe someone as being “mobbed by fans”, it conjures up the image of some wild media frenzy that look something like this.

Now, compare that to the “mobbing” I received at the hands of my Penang “fans”.

WALAU! Eh you “mobs” can appear more excited and less bored-looking or not!?
