What Are The Odds?

This is too much of a coincidence.

What are the odds of a Kuching blogger travelling to Penang to be part of a reality TV show, eating Penang Char Kueh Teow at a table, right next to a Singaporean blogger who’s also travelling to Penang to shoot a separate TV show?

I swear there wasn’t any prior planning going into this. The whole thing just happened completely out of the blue.
I was just sitting there doing my thing when I noticed an ang moh boy walking across the road. I thought to myself, “Hmmm… that guy looks remarkably like XiaXue‘s boyfriend.”

A short while later, I noticed a tall lanky girl sporting a tattoo of a star on her arm walking past me, and I thought to myself, “Hmmm… that girl looks just like XiaXue’s Girls Out Loud co-host Rozz.”
“Hey wait a minute, it IS Rozz.”

Turns out the whole Girls Out Loud crew was there in Penang, eating at the exact same Char Kueh Teow stall at the exact same time as I did. Seriously, what are the chances right?
I couldn’t even recognise Wendy Cheng. Sporting a new hair colour and a new nose, she’s looking refreshly different.

Heh. A Kuching boy and a Singaporean girl bumping into each other at a little lorong in Penang, of all places.
It’s a small world after all.

Penang rocks, big time. Did some really crazy ass stuff which I’m pretty sure they’re gonna use on TV. Anyway, I’m in brief stopover at KL now before returning to Kuching. What a trip!

  1. wow that’s cool. when we meet people we know in kuching we might think it’s a small small world. but meeting someone in penang same time same place.. lol. that’s like 1 in a million chance.

  2. hey pal, u look great with your new hairstyle. And have a hunk look. hahaha… Better than the photo u take at Penang at 2002. Don’t worry, I ain’t gay.
    Seriously, is that really Xia Xue. WOW! I got nothing to say. Completely different.

  3. I calculated.
    The odds are 1:1,278,998 just for xx alone.
    1:2,334,665 if you include Rozz.
    But once you take into consideration that Mike is there from US as well it balloons to
    1: 45,899,989!!!

  4. u exposed her “after-gettin-nose-job” pics before she herself did!!
    anyway, i miss penang food. hope u enjoyed it there.

  5. lorong selamat food isnt exactly nice, just another “tourist attraction” whereby true penangites seldom frequent. ie, you pay an extremely high price for food not worth that much

  6. the bee shades is a no-no for xiaxue’s nose. it made her nose even more bulbous. roaaaaaaaaaaar. and she looks even more pretty with blue black hair. yeay!

  7. haha i think it’ll be the perfect time to sing that song.. ‘It’s a small world after all! It’s a small world after all.. it’s a small, small worllllllld!’ =P

  8. Dude… that ang moh guy looks like a whimp. What a ginga!
    ps: he kinda looks like archie… the dude in the comics….

  9. I fully agree with the comment “Xiaxue looks even more fucking ugly than she usually is.” and may add that she look stupid with that smile n hair style
    Got back from Kuching n the food sucks big time…and i tried 4 kolo mee and only the store at “10th mile” is okay n the rest are not something west m’sian will eat..
    koay chiap there is like short hor fun with watered down tau yew bak gravy.
    laksa is almost like penang curry mee but without the penang processed chilly..
    however the teh C special at a seafod restaurant in damai is good as the syrup is pandan flavoured n dark greenish. the other few i tasted are nothing special.

  10. omg thats wendy cheng that xiaxue girl? man i think she need some tuition on fashion. i think that shirt of hers is way tooooo small and tight for her. her tummy is bugging out!
    and oh man… the nose seriously suck and that shade doesnt suit her. just one word…DISGUSTING.
    but anyway kenny you looked fine la =D

  11. I was going to say how pudgy her nose looks but everybody has already commented on it. I thought ppl who go for a nose job usually want a sharper nose like kuai loh? I think she is going to ask u to take down pic #3.

  12. Hey Kenny, you’re sporting a nice haircut there! Very smart looking.
    What a small world for your to bum into xiaxue and the crew. I guess there are going to be another season of GOL huh?! She does look completely different from her usual blond mane.
    That Char Kueh Teow stall must be seriously good. 🙂

  13. Aiyoh Kenny… give me a call la. I bring you out for a better food.
    Frankly, I don’t really like the Lorong Selamat Char Koay Teow. The woman damn “lansi”. If you can wait, then wait. Otherwise, you can leave.

  14. Kenny you look younger with this hair style, where u cut it? I’m looking for better saloon at Kuching actually. Xiaxue’s nose bot suite her la!!

  15. Kenny, The odds are 1:1,278,998 just for xx alone but why u so sway (unlucky)…
    I fully fully agree with the comment “Xiaxue looks even more fucking ugly than she usually is.” and may add that she look stupid & so ah lien with that smile n hair style n the oversize sun glasses. i think she need some tuition on fashion. i think that shirt of hers is way tooooo small and tight for her. her tummy is bugging out!
    and oh man… the nose seriously suck and that shade doesnt suit her. just one word…DISGUSTING.
    In that pic xx with angmoh, xx look kind of retarded.

  16. “XiaXue’s Girls Out Loud co-host Rozz”…hahaha she’s hot a long title…
    u revealed xx’s photos even b4 she did it herself! I’m sure she made u (or herself) photoshop the pix of her! it’s so ugly I don’t even dare to believe it’s post surgery!
    But seriously…i think she looks better as a blonde bimbo than normal dark hair chinese gal warteva…. (i’m chinese btw =p)

  17. Xiaxue didnt even post images of her new hair yet and you did! Hahah too cute! I wouldn’t mind bumping into your guys anyday!
    Rozz is so cool (:

  18. Out of all the best Char Koay Teow in Penang, you have gone to one of the worst and most expensive Char Koay Teow in town! You must have been cheated by the taxi driver, or your Penang guide is not a local.

  20. however bad-looking some of u mite say abt XX, u cant deny that she has a pretty smile, always. very warm & natural. but of course she doesnt look good in the photos kenny posted…

  21. ah~ with Rozz standing right beside you, we have a proper gauge of wad your height is. I’d say around 175cm?
    XX’s nose doesn’t look very different, in fact it looks kinda swollen to me, she shld have the doc look at it again.
    Rozz is hot.
    And the odds are crazy.
    And since you asked for it… *pokes you*

  22. lorong selamat auntie is so so to me, it’s rm5.50 now btw.
    i hearts the lrg selamat apek more!!
    apparently the pg secret CKT is in p.tikus where we must not bring kenny to in order to keep that place an open secret of penangites and not have tourists!! ho ho ho

  23. XX’s shades look like a fake Christian Dior Glossy sunglasses. The one that Paris Hilton used to wear all the time. The only thing I think is hideous is her haircut with short bangs. It’s funny how she transforms herself from all fake and bimbotic to looking like a 10-year old nerd.
    Rozz, as usual, is one gorgeous chick!

  24. I have been in US for 10 years, and I have to say only guy like XX’s boyfriend, who has low self-esteeem and couldn’t find a girl in US, would go to Asia and date a girl like XX. People in Asia might think he is cute, but seriously.. in US he is considered an average looking nerd.

  25. what a coincidence..our school had a prefect’s training camp in penang and we went to the EXACT same stall to eat char kuey teow!!

  26. 老實說, 你部落格的文章比下雪的幽默.

  27. Everyone’s flocking to Penang now eh ? I’m proud to be a Penangite ! Penang rocks, I agree with you Kenny Sia.
