A few more photos from the red carpet that has just ended.

One Republic stopped and stared.

Kuching’s very own Nicholas Teo.
So ironic. Fifteen years ago, if I wanted to see Nicholas Teo, all I gotta do is walk across the next classroom.
Now if I want to see Nicholas Teo, I have to squeeze among the press to get to the red carpet.

Stefanie Sun, nominated for favourite Singapore artiste.
Karen Mok and Jared Leto, the two hosts for the evening.

The scribbling underneath her is by another Pussycat Doll. Neh, the less famous one.

4:38pm – The Jabbawookiez has arrived the Red Carpet.

3:38pm – The red carpet area, before the invasion of media, screaming fans and glamourous celebs.

I’m a little upset because I am denied access to the actual awards show.

I only managed to get access to the red carpet and photo room, which on the bright side, is better than nothing I guess.
Caught a glimpse of OneRepublic rehearsing “Stop And Stare” in the Arena of Stars.

Security promptly chased me out 2 minutes later.

2:34pm – The media and mosh-pitters are gathering right now to collect their passes.

JoyceTheFairy, Jason Goh, Michael Yip and Liang are here as well. The mosh pitters are practising their cheering, screaming their lungs out.
Rumour has it that there was a mass walkout staged by the local media during the press conference yesterday due to unfair treatment by the organisers.

1:24pm – I’m here at Genting to attend the MTV Asia Awards 2008.

I will be trying something new tonight. During the MTV Asia Awards, I will be blogging LIVE from the scene.
This is how my equipment is hooked up for the job: the HP Mini connected to the HTC Touch Diamond, accessing the world wide web with Maxis 3G.

Beginning 6pm tonight, will be updated regularly with photos from the scene and winner announcements every few minutes. It is my first attempt at live blogging. If all goes well, you’ll be reading exclusive live coverage on what is going on at the awards ceremony, right here on, before they’re even being published anywhere else.
This is not the end of my entry. Check back regularly for updates later. πŸ™‚

This is a live blog entry. Check back regularly for frequent updates.

    all in all, wish there were more artists and more performance … was disappointed it actually ended at 9:30 pm. maybe you can let the organiser know that they should have the award in malaysia next year and have a longer event πŸ™‚

  22. U said Li Yu Chun is not happy when she received the awards?? Do u know who is she?? How come you will said she doesn’t look happy?? She just din smile as u want only.. Maybe she dun understand what you r asking bout… Please don’t say her like that.. She purposely come Malaysia to receive this awards without any performance!!! This is her 1st time reach KL… Please let her have a nice memory.. Thank you…

  23. but so far only the Favourite Artist Mainland China has turned up to have her photo taken.
    So pleased to see this,LEE YU CHUN is a very good girl.That’s why so many people love her,like her.She is lovely.

  24. Hey Kenny! πŸ™‚ Valerie here from UrbanWire, Singapore. We met at Genting! Great work updating real quick.. We, on the other hand, had to rely on Coffee Bean and Starbucks’ wireless. Keep in touch! -Val

    Soooooooooo beautiful!
    I love her voice!!!
    I love her voice !!!!!!

  26. xixi, so happy that i use corn as my name^^

  28. Hahahaha.. I’ve to scroll down, up, down up, down up for so many times *LOL*
    Thanks for the live update though I just read them cos I seldom read papers πŸ™‚
    StephanieSun is so skinny.. Nicholas Tse is cute πŸ˜€

  29. mtv asia award for asia singer.where is asia powerful singer as well as west singer or better than them?all winner suck…where is asia songbird, regine velasquez(philipines)….asia best kept secret,siti nurhaliza(malaysia)…crystal voice of asia,sheryn regis(philipines), anggun (indonesia),jacky cheung,lata mageskar…why malaysia singer not given chance to perform at stage with full perfomance?????

  30. Kenny,
    you should’ve been walking the red carpet too judging by the way the sea of fans were chanting your name!! ^_^

  31. i think that it’s unfair that you made such comment about some unknown indonesian artist. come on, as if you know who the hell Tor+Saksit was or even heard of some of the other artists before.

  32. aha! nicholas teo definitely deserves the award for fav artist msia!
    ooowh, siti fans, dont get mad just because she did not get the award. people says he’s not as famous as siti. wahahhahahaa! you make me laugh~

  33. hahah.. the first nicholas teo pic was vr good, the last one, sth went wrong with his smile.. wakakkakaka…. he’s like a smiling cat

  34. i’m veary happy to know that lee yu chun has got the award…
    love this girl and her beautiful voice…

  35. yeh, super junior are a bunch of sissies lol.
    how can u spelled jabbawockeez’s name wrongly. they’re so big!

  36. Hi Kenny! MAA was awesome ya! Great to have met you in person at the Chinese restaurant after the awards πŸ™‚

  37. Omg im so sorry i commented in the wrong post. Delete the one from the chelsea post lol.
    Super Junior is a THIRTEEN member boyband, not eight. Two couldn’t attend the event (one was filimg a korean drama whereas the other chinese member was preparing for the Beijing Olympics Ceremony) so that makes 11 boys on the red carpet.
    Peace Muakz

  38. woah~ didn’t think that was what went on in the VIP room at Coffee Terrace lol! But I guess it was bound to happen anyway. I have to say the artistes were generally all very friendly towards fans (though Nick Teo kinda irked me) and took lots of photos and signed autographs. Plenty of groupies around…
    Btw, Super Junior is a 13 member group, not 8 lol

  39. why on earth does girls like super juniors? sissy boys. and why on earth does Li Yu Chun become famous?! the trend now seems to be the more girlish a guy is, the more famous he is. and the more ‘boyish’ the girl is, the more famous she is!
    Nicholas Teo SUCKS.

  40. hi!!! thanks for the pics. n’ info of the MTV asian awards!!! You are the best!!! seeing all those stars would have made me faint!!! thanks for the pics., especially pics. of super junior, pussycat dolls, leona lewis, etc. ^___^

  41. The is quite detached actually; most of the artists do not represent the majority of the voice in the respective country, too many western artists. Just look at the red carpet, the crowds is small and perform in closed area. In term of business sense, it is a strategy to bring western artist to Asia and quite successful.

  42. Kenny…
    why u are you so happy for Nicholas Teo??
    He dont even admit that he’s from Kuching, SARAWAK..

  43. OMG!!i never thought leeyuchun r so famous here..but,but,but she was so pretty!!her voice is not rough but deep,comfortable and,and,and..u will know why so many people vote for her soon..not because of her appearance o..but is her style,personality, voice,stage performances and more..cant express my feelings with words..^^

  44. Thanks for your pic of LiYuChun~~
    I’m her big fans~
    Do u hav the pic when she receiving the award?
    It’s so pity tat she din singing tat day
    I really love her style on the stage
    This is her style,no matter what awards she received,she always smile and smile,
    we called this “steady” ^^

  45. oh my gawd i seen this in august and it was so awesome jared and nicholas teo oh they were so hot made me happy godd job on the blog

  46. Do u mind to send me some photos of Nicholas Teo n if u dun mind can I post it on Nicholas Teo’s M’sia Official Fans Club (NFC) forum to share with all of his fans and credit to u ? Thx for the great updates n photos.
