Hollywood Weaklings And My Favorites ;)

In My American Idol Addiction on February 15, 2008 at 2:19 am

I’ve always loved American Idol.  Especially now that I’ve declared my crush on Simon Cowell publicly.  HAHA.

But then after I watched the season 7 Hollywood Week episode, I’d have to say… I feel like watching some sappy show.  Yeah yeah we need the ‘drama’, but I think this year there’s a wee bit too much tears.  I mean, I expected something really funny like that bit they did with the tone deaf cowboys from two seasons ago.  You know?  Or is it really that this year they only managed to get crybabies?

And no, I don’t think Simon was being evil.  *teteeeppp*

A Series of Congratulations!

In Me Likey, My Amazing Race Asia Addiction on February 15, 2008 at 1:46 am

Although it started quite bumpy, I have a series of congratulations to deliver to the following:

1.  Adrian & Collin of Singapore.  You guys rock.  I knew I picked the right team to root for!  Once again, it’s proven that so-called ‘disabilities’ won’t stop anyone who has determination.  Best team ever on TARA.  Quiet, determined and focused.  Loved how you played the game right to the end.  I wonder what you guys will do with the $100,000.  Whatever it will be, I am sure it will be good 😀

2.  Pam & Van.  Great job on the radio assembling, and great race in the sand dunes.  Pretty girls don’t have to be dumbos, and you both have shown that.  No dumb blonde moments and coming in second ain’t that shabby!

3.  Marc & Rovilson.  Loving you both.  Coming in third is okay, I think, since you guys have all those goodies from coming in first in all the other legs.  I’m still envious of that Africa trip prize!

4.  Allan Wu.  Thank you for being so cute and adorable all through season 2.  Can’t wait to see ya again on season 3.  Keep the haircut!

5.  And finally, my favorite guy:  Michael McKay.  I’m not sorry that I bitched a lot about the contestants selection because most of them sucked anyway.  But thank you for the great finalists and the awesome finale.  And thank God I gave the show a chance after all those annoying contestants.  I have to say, the final 3 teams were the best racers ever!  Surely, I can’t wait for the next season to air.  Oh, and nice Vaio built-in on the museum task, although my favorite moment of this season’s race was the charity house-painting by Standard Chartered.  That was very touching and yes that was great TV as it brought tears to my eyes.  Hope you do these sort of things again on the next season.  I loved it.  Seriously.

Aahhh… and now I’ll have to check whether I won the SMS contest because I predicted that the Singaporeans will win.  So fingers crossed, I might… just might win one of those fine Sony goodies! HAHAHA!

Cheers to TARA 2.  I didn’t think I’ll ever say that after watching the first 3 episodes, but I knew I’d say that after watching the last 3 episodes.

Funny how the show, like the race itself, turns the table sometimes. Ah, reality shows.  As unreal as they are, I still love them.  Yeah.  They’re way way better than some Indian guy talking about Bollywood to non-Bollywood audience and bore us to our bones.

Yes Karan, I am talking about your Krappy Koffee show.  EUGH!

The ultimate fear is to find out that one isn’t as fearless as one thought one would be.


To The Finals, Teams!

In My Amazing Race Asia Addiction on February 8, 2008 at 1:19 am

Again, I know I bitched a lot about this season’s Amazing Race Asia.  But when it’s good, I should say it’s good.  So after whiny teams, annoyingly bickering couples and a disappointment from our Indonesian team who got eliminated pretty early, I summed up the whole race into a list of thoughts as follows:

1.   I am quite surprised on the country selections.  The race has taken off beyond Asia, and I have to admit the countries are indeed amazing places.  Congratulations!

Simon Cowell. I Heart You.

In Celebrity Talk, My American Idol Addiction on February 7, 2008 at 8:04 pm

I’ve been quite ADD-ish about my TV show preference these days.  Mikearmand thinks I’ve given up on The Amazing Race Asia, and having not written anything about it for quite some time, he’s right to think so.  But truthfully, I’ve got a lot to digest.  American Idol?  I never missed an episode of it, yet I’ve not written anything about it either.   And seeing my past posts and special tags I’ve created to devote my addictions to them, I too question myself: why?

Well why, maybe it’s because when I’m fed too much good shows, I just become lazy.

Looking For A Bulls**t Job

In Reviews on February 6, 2008 at 2:50 pm

Right.  Sometimes I dream of doing nothing but getting a lot of money.  Like DUH!  That is the dream of every red-blooded employee on the planet.

In the midst of my search for these so-called ‘dream jobs’, I stumbled upon this fabulous book:  100 Bullshit Jobs… And How To Get Them by Stanley Bing.  Man, it’s a really funny read.  The part I love the most is the conclusion chapter.  I’m not telling what it is, but it’s really enlightening.  Bing’s sharp look at corporate and (non) corporate life tickled my funny bones and got me nodding all the way through the book.  What do AROMATHERAPISTS do, exactly?  Or MARRIAGE COUNSELORS who, by Bing’s calculations, usually succeed in driving their clients towards divorces rather than reconcilliations.  Among the funniest was when I read that “Being Donald Trump” requires a 200 level of BS with a downside of: People making fun of your beautiful ORANGE hair.  Hilarious.  Hilarious indeed.

You can visit the author’s internet home here.  In case you haven’t heard of him, he’s also the guy who wrote Sun Tzu Was A Sissy.  Okay, I’m gonna get my hands on that one too.

Is This A Sign?

In Silly Posts on February 6, 2008 at 1:00 pm

I found this fact on a random website today:

St. Patric, the patron saint of Ireland,  was not Irish.

This is a sign.  Seriously, I’m applying to be the next American president, because “St. Miund” sounds ridiculous.

Have I Or Haven’t I?

Okay, this is another thing why you SHOULD go online and windowshop.  Today’s find is a board game that threw me into questioning:

Haven’t I played this all these times?

Tonight’s the Night

In Entertainment on February 4, 2008 at 2:34 pm

It’s ok if it’s 5 years late.
It’s ok if it’s only aired after so many dumb shows before its existence.
It’s ok if people find it dumber than any dumb shows before its existence.

All I know is I need something to look forward to every Monday, and my dear Starworld had answered my prayers.

Calling all aspiring stand-up comics and let’s watch the new series together… to see who will be the Last Comic Standing.

And I am currently reading this because practice isn’t enough. 😀

Another Rainy Day Wish

In Me Likey, Shopping, Wishlist on February 1, 2008 at 8:02 pm

Okay, am at home now and looking for something comforting.  Yeah, my bed is enough… or so I think after seeing this:


Man, I WANT IT!  Especially when away from my sweetie.  Just add a warm blanket and this Leachco Back ‘N Belly – Contoured Body Pillow will assure sweet sweet dreams at only $59.99.  As I haven’t got a baby yet, I imagine this pillow will be handy when I decide to work from bed with my laptop. 

Ah heaven.
