Asian Own’s Sports Illustratred

i bet you guys didnt know this, Almost three years ago Maggie Q sneaked into Malaysia for a personal project called Love Asia, an Asian version of the American Sports Illustrated Swimsuit editions. The production is aimed at promoting Asian women and Maggie is featured in it as well.

"When we were shooting in Chinatown (in Petaling Street, Kuala Lumpur) in front of the shops, none of the shop owners said ‘No’. Most of the local people I’ve come in contact with in Malaysia are those working in my crew, and they’ve been really co-operative. That’s partly why we chose to come to Malaysia. You have no idea how hard it can be in some countries. And even the reporters. Halfway through, some Chinese press reporters found out about me and politely asked for permission to take my picture and talk to me. That’s so different from Hong Kong. That’s why when I say Malaysian people are nice, I really, really mean it." 


Tell Hong Kong-based Maggie Q that she is a Model-Turned-Actress and the beautiful one laughs out loud. "Yes, I’m a cliché. But I don’t care," she exclaims in a girlish voice, unembarrassed.

"I don’t blame these stereotypes," she rattles in an American drawl. "Look at Cindy Crawford and Elle MacPherson. Just because one can doesn’t mean one should," she says, referring to the lackluster acting efforts by the supermodels.

While the sylph-like Eurasian would not comment on her own craft, critics have been kind towards her few roles to date. Her most famous role was playing an FBI agent in Gen Y Cops (2000), which also starred Nicholas Tse.
Last year, her stage debut in Hong Kong even earned her rave reviews. South China Morning Post journalist Tom Hilditch wrote that Maggie’s was ‘a star performance’.

Then, there is Love Asia, the hour-long Sports Illustrated-styled production, lensed by Singaporean photographer Leslie Kee. Maggie is one of 10 models featured in the title, which finally made its debut on the decidedly non-prime time Star World on Friday, at 11:30 pm Hong Kong local time.

Why this production sat on the shelf for better part of three years collecting dust and not seeing the light of broadcast may give one pause, as to the interest in the production. Furthermore, that Star World picks it up only to run its premier during an off-hours time slot on a late night Friday make it seem less than a commercial success.

The production documents the ten models’ three days romp through Malaysia for their shoots at different locations throughout the tropical Southeast Asian nation

Maggie Q (a/k/a: Maggie Quigley) gets the video going as any headliner should. The Vietnamese-American beauty, (5’9", 33-24-32) born in Hawaii to her American dad and Vietnamese mom, gives a laid back interview about herself saying "My dream is to do good films, films that mean something, films that that affect people." The interview is interspersed with video coverage of her swimsuit photo shoot. 

This sets the tone for the flow of the production and each girl is introduced – by her first name only – in turn in the same style.

 


There is Chinese Chi-Ling, (5’9", 34-23-33), born and raised in Taiwan. Mainland Chinese honey Queenie, (5’10", 34-32-33), raised in Shenzen and whose parents found the ad in a local paper for her first modeling job.


Japanese Mayuko, (5’10", 32-23-34), a lusty Tokyo born girl who was raised in Yokohama from the age of 3, claims she didn’t know how to pose when she first started in the business "I do modeling jobs, but I am not a model." As a proper Japanese girl she says that she is traditional, and admits that she might ‘fall a few steps behind her man’, when out with him. Though this doesn’t seem to jive with her frisky side when she admits – and wins kudos from the other women – for winning ‘best sex location’ for having sex in airplane’s bathroom. Maggie is notably impressed. 

Chinese born and Hong Kong raised, Almen, (5’8", 34-25-34), says she was a tomboy growing up and that he family welcomed her transition to a more feminine role.

 

Grace, (5’10" 33-23-33), is ‘pure Filipina’ as she puts it and a simple gal who was recruited for modeling while shopping with friends at the mall. "At first I hesitated but my friends said, ‘go for it’" she recounts.

 
A lovely mix of Korean and Japanese is found in Kae, (5’11", 32-23-33) who -sadly – had to concede defeat to Mayuko, for only being able to muster sex on the beach, to Mayuko’s airplane antics.


Singapore born and raised Jacqueline has a Dutch father and Indonesian mother and proves to be a well-rounded, grounded and beautiful woman. 

Then there is Thai-Chinese Yo, (5’9", 34-23-34), raised in Thailand she is another girl next door who – to her surprise – was recruited for modeling and hopes simply to make the most of it while it lasts.
An outstanding beauty is Aysha, (5’10" 33-34-33), who is a testament to international relations through her lineage as an Indian-Pakistani-Chinese woman.

 
Maggie – who got a producer credit along with Fortune Asia for the piece – also isn’t shy about offering romance tips to her fellow models in Love Asia telling them, "Never ever, ever marry someone that you love more than he loves you."  Probe her about her romances, and Maggie, who was last romantically linked with Nakata Hidetoshi, the midfielder of Italian football club Parma, becomes all pensive.  "I like Asian men. I cannot fathom dating Caucasians. They don’t have to be pretty boys or beautiful. I can accept flaws in a man," she says cautiously.  Asked if any of her former boyfriends come close to fitting that mould? She smiles. "One of them was my ideal type, but I’m not naming names," she teases.  And although she is a picture of composure and confidence, she admits to feeling insecure sometimes. "I lack faith sometimes. I feel that I don’t live up to other people’s expectations of me," she says. But she looks confident, you point out.  Then comes her riposte, delivered with an exaggerated voice and impish expression.  "Why, that’s because I’m a good actress!"  Actress or model Love Asia, while it may not have been a stunning success for those who appreciate Asian beauty, it might just be a reason to spend a Friday night at home to enjoy all that is stunnin about this production. ok dont go drooling now catch ya later and take care

Emergency in Thailand

i’ve just receive this information from my ammie today, this is bad. taken from BBC news. There are even Tanks around the government area. i hope there wont be any problem anymore.

 

BBC Last Updated: Wednesday, 20 September 2006, 00:43 GMT 01:43 UK

Military leaders in Thailand have staged a coup, suspended the  constitution and declared martial law.

Army chief Sonthi Boonyaratglin said the military leadership had formed a council for political reform and ousted the Prime Minister, Thaksin Shinawatra.

The coup leaders say the cabinet and parliament have been abolished, but power will be returned to the people.

 

Mr Thaksin cancelled a speech he was due to give at the UN. It is unclear whether he intends to return home.

The military said the country’s stock market, banks and schools would remain closed on Wednesday.

BBC World, CNN and other international TV news channels have been taken off the air, while Thai stations have broadcast footage of the royal family and patriotic songs.

‘Temporary measure’

In the capital, Bangkok, soldiers seized government offices and took up strategic positions around the city

In a broadcast on all Thai television channels, the leadership of the armed forces said it had taken control of Bangkok, declared nationwide martial law and ordered all troops to return to their bases.

"We ask for the co-operation of the public and ask your pardon for the inconvenience," the announcement said.

A spokesman for the coup leaders, Gen Prapart Sakuntanak, said the seizure would be temporary and power would be "returned to the people" soon.

The military announced that regional commanders would take charge of their areas outside Bangkok.

It ordered provincial governors and heads of government agencies to report to them in the coming hours.

The rebels – who said they were led by Gen Sonthi – visited the king and declared loyalty to him.

The highly revered King Bhumibol Adulyadej has made no comment about whether he backs the takeover attempt.

There has been pressure growing on the prime minister to resign, including from groups close to King Bhumibol, following a political impasse in which April’s general election was declared invalid.

But the BBC’s Jonathan Head in Bangkok reports that while many people wanted Mr Thaksin out of office, there will be unease about the way this has happened, and people will be looking to see whether the king has supported the coup.

Opposition Senator Mechai Viravaidya welcomed Mr Thaksin’s departure, despite doubts about the methods used.

"I’m delighted he’s gone," he said. "It would have been great if he had resigned voluntarily, but apparently he was too stubborn. But at least it’s better than an assassination."

Another opponent of the prime minister, Chirmsak Pinthong, suggested that Mr Thaksin’s continuation in power would have been even worse.

"I would say that nothing is worse than what Thaksin has done," he said. "Thaksin has already carried out what I would call a silent coup, because he called the country as a dictatorship by using money in a corrupt way.

"Nothing is worse than the Thaksin regime."

‘Following orders’

Our correspondent says the coup is a surprising development for a country that had been viewed as one of Asia’s leading democracies, and events in Thailand will have repercussions throughout the region.

The streets in Bangkok were quiet on Tuesday night. People were calm for the most part, correspondents say, curious about what was going on, but some said they were scared.

Traffic moved through the streets normally and in the bars of the city centre, foreign tourists seemed oblivious to what was going on.

One soldier on a tank said: "We don’t know why we’re here, we’ve been told to say nothing. We’re just following orders."

Russell Miles emailed the BBC News website to say there were troops "dressed in Swat-style gear strolling around" near Government House, and "a tense, but fairly controlled atmosphere".

He said: "We saw a group of blokes bundling a cameraman and another chap into a van. We are taking photos, but not out in the open."

The EU’s Finnish presidency expressed "grave concern" at events, and the US called on Thais "to resolve their political differences in a peaceful manner".

It is the first coup attempt in 15 years in a country where they used to be commonplace. There were 17 of them between 1932 and 1991.

Klang Kriterium Race

Yesterday was the 1st road race i participated, it was fun, but the problem with this race is .. alas… the wait.

7am in the morning  Jason came by with his Bike and then followed by Justin, we all went to register ourself and got ourself a Tshirt, wow .. really kewl as we have not race and already got a prize, but to me.. joining the race and being at the starting line is being a winner. not many people i know would do that, they would just say, oh it is just a  waste of time participating,

8.45, we waited for the categories to be flagged off, What a Surprise to see Justin’s Mom and Dad whom came by to cheer for us, thanks Mr and Mrs Pua, i didnt took any picture but i did have this only,the starting line 

started with the Klang closed category offered only to under 18, what a bummer then follow by under 16, under 18, women open, junior veteran, and then senior veteron and finally the senior 19 – 35 category.  time waited and cheering for racers total 4 hours

Lim mechanic from Boon Foo was there, so was Kimbeley the Msia Triathlete, chatted with them for a while, i even saw my old coach Valentin from Russia and it was a long time he doesnt recognize me anymore, it was like 8 years ago. Well good to see him still training the Selangor division after so long.

12.30 the race flagged off for my category which is the senior 19-35, about 70 people raced. by the 2nd lap i have already dropped to 48, i just see there is no point continuing so i stopped when i saw justin by the side on the 4th lap :( i know i know. people who give up even before they finish are losers, haha .. but hey i know my limits k. those kids were just too fast. i was averaging about 38kmph so says my meter, AVERAGE!! its different from a dualthon or triathlon. cause you cant keep the cadence constant the track was a small little loop of 1.03km  

well no whining, i know where i stand as i dont train like those kids.. it was just for pure experience and fun. it was fun though and i am hoping to join more races in the future, Road bike race.

DO NOT CLICK

Curiosity did kill the cat, it killed you cause you clicked on it even when i ask not to,

In essence, "curiosity" is a term that describes an unknown number of behavioural and psychological mechanisms, which have the effect of impelling beings to seek information and interaction with their natural environment and with other beings in their vicinity.


what causes this curiosity is most likely a natural instinct developed by evolution; curiousity confers a survival advantage to certain species, and can be found in their genomes (see Behavioral Genetics).


Who is affected?

Curiosity is common to human beings at all ages; from infancy to old age, and is easy to observe in many other animal species. These include apes, cats, fish, reptiles, and insects; as well as many others. Many aspects of exploration are shared among all beings, as all known terrestrial beings share similar aspects: limited size, and a need to seek out food sources.

Many famous historical figures where affected strongly by curiosity, to explore and conquer, for example, Colombus, Balboa, Magellan, Coronado, Sir Francis Drake, etc. to name a few.

It’s a Dirty Sport

Is the truth finally catching up with Lance Armstrong, and is this one race the seven-time Tour de France champion may not be able to win?

In Tuesday’s New York Times, two of Armstrong’s former U.S. Postal Service teammates admitted to having used EPO, an illegal performance-enhancing drug, at some point in 1999, the first year Armstrong won the Tour de France. While neither said they saw Armstrong do the same, the implication was that the drug use was common knowledge within the team. "The environment was certainly one of, to be accepted, you had to use doping products," said one of Armstrong’s teammates, who requested anonymity, fearing reprisals from the notoriously vindictive Armstrong, who still wields considerable power in cycling.

The other teammate was 39-year-old Frankie Andreu, a domestique who competed professionally for 12 years and was once Armstrong’s close friend and roommate. He’s now a motivational speaker and real-estate dealer in Dearborn, Mich. He said he only used EPO "for a couple of races" and was speaking out in hopes of cleaning up his tainted sport.

More interesting — to me, anyway — was the testimony the Times uncovered that Andreu and his wife, Betsy, gave last fall during a lawsuit between Armstrong and SCA Promotions. The company had withheld a $5 million bonus it owed Armstrong after he won the ’04 Tour because of doping allegations.

The suit was eventually settled out of court in Armstrong’s favor, but in  their sworn testimony the Andreus said that when they visited Armstrong in the hospital after he’d been diagnosed with testicular cancer, they’d heard him tell his oncologists that he’d used "steroids, testosterone, cortisone, growth hormone and EPO." Their testimony was disputed by the doctor who administered Armstrong’s chemotherapy at Indiana University Medical Center. In the same trial, Armstrong testified that his doctors never asked him if he’d used performance-enhancing drugs, and that he’d never used those substances.

Which testimony is more credible? The Andreus’ or Armstrong’s? Ask yourself which party had the most to gain by lying. And why is that particular testimony significant? Because one of the possible side effects of prolonged steroid use is testicular cancer. It’s impossible to prove, but if what the Andreus testified to under oath is true, than Lance Armstrong, role model and hero to so many cancer survivors, may very well have helped bring about his own cancer through his use of performance-enhancing drugs. Young athletes tempted to go down that road need to know if that’s the case.

None of what was reported in the Times is a shock to me. In 1999 I went to see Willy Voet, the Belgian trainer of the French-based Festina cycling team who was at the center of the ’98 Tour de France scandal when he was arrested while crossing the border with literally hundreds of vials of EPO, growth hormones and testosterone.

Voet ended up spending time in prison, and by the time he talked to me he was a man filled with remorse. He, too, was interested in helping to clean up his sport, and had written a book in French, the title of which translates as Chain Massacre: Revelations of 30 Years of Cheating. It made him an outcast in cycling but painstakingly chronicled the drug culture that only now is recognized as having infected the sport.

In the 1970s, Voet said, the drug of choice was amphetamines. In the ’80s it was anabolic steroids and cortisone. In the ’90s it was growth hormones and EPO. He described leaning out a car window to give a shot to a cyclist in the middle of a race. He recalled hiding condoms of clean urine in the anus of cyclists to fool drug-testers. He spoke of dripping IV bags of saline solution into their bodies after a race to lower the ratio of red-blood-cell volume to total blood volume to avoid EPO detection in the event of a surprise drug test.

Of the 500 cyclists he’d worked with over the years, only two had ever failed a drug test. "A racer who gets caught by doping control is dumb as a mule," Voet told me.

And how many of those 500 cyclists he worked with did not take drugs to enhance their performance? "I can count them on two hands. Maybe two hands and two feet if I’m generous," Voet said.

And where did the clean ones finish? I wondered.

"The back of the pack," Voet said.

Armstrong never finished at the back of the pack. Neither did his onetime teammate, Tyler Hamilton, the ’04 Olympic champion who was suspended for two years for blood doping. Neither did another former teammate, Floyd Landis, who failed a doping test after winning this year’s Tour de France. Neither did Italy’s Ivan Basso, or Germany’s Jan Ullrich, or Spain’s Francisco Mancebo, who finished second, third and fourth to Armstrong in the ’05 Tour, all of whom have been implicated in the Spanish doping investigation that rocked the start of this year’s Tour. Each disputes the allegations.

There’s nothing new in any of this. Voet was telling the truth, but not enough people were listening. The sport of cycling is dirty, was dirty and will continue to be dirty until more athletes like Andreu and trainers like Voet come forward and break the code of silence. Remember those names. They’re the heroes.

Here’s the thing about truth: It may take a while. It may take years. But truth’s a tenacious battler. Eventually it will come out. (taken from yahoosports)

I for once would like to believe that he is innocent, but the holes are beginning to show, most people that do not take drugs will be left in the back of the pack like voet said, its true, (maybe to a certain extent) If Lance is Guilty and he say he is not, he shall live in guilt and forever he will know he is wrong. Whats a win with enhancer to you ? ask yourself..  but if Lance is guilty on drugs, lots of people would be devastated, for one of them is me.  catch ya later,

The Tommasini Project

You must be wondering? what the hell is a Tomassini, its a italian bike manufacturer in DUH italy, it is a bike name to be hold with such as Ciocc, Torelli, Viner, Moser, Bellesi, Cinelli and Gios and Moser,  i think thats all the italian bike brand that still manufacture Steel Frames as people these days go for titanium and Carbon. Steel is the way to go. Here is a bit of history about Tommasini

 

Irio Tommasini has spent most of his life around bicycles. In 1948, while still racing as an amateur, he started working on bicycles. His building career started at an important bicycle factory in Milan where he had the opportunity to gain valuable experience and learn the techniques that enabled him in 1957, to start his own business in his home town
of Grosseto and he still is there till today.

 

Today i have started a new project (its the Tommasini project) its my bike. My steel bike and yup i will take months to look for all the right parts and the end of the bike it will look like this (the FRAME la i mean) not the whole bike.. the whole bike would be something else.

 I will show you the process of me going thru it one by one, maybe you can find a passion to make your bike into one, let me know .. we can ride together. if you have any cool steel bike pictures let me know where i can find it. Would love to see more design. thanks guys.. catch ya later

Upside Down

Jack Johnson

Who’s to say
What’s impossible
Well they forgot
This world keeps spinning
And with each new day
I can feel a change in everything
And as the surface breaks reflections fade
But in some ways they remain the same
And as my mind begins to spread its wings
There’s no stopping curiosity
I want to turn the whole thing upside down
I’ll find the things they say just can’t be found
I’ll share this love I find with everyone
We’ll sing and dance to Mother Nature’s songs
I don’t want this feeling to go away
Who’s to say
I can’t do everything
Well I can try
And as I roll along I begin to find
Things aren’t always just what they seem
I want to turn the whole thing upside down
I’ll find the things they say just can’t be found
I’ll share this love I find with everyone
We’ll sing and dance to Mother Nature’s songs
This world keeps spinning and there’s no time to waste
Well it all keeps spinning spinning round and round and
Upside down
Who’s to say what’s impossible and can’t be found
I don’t want this feeling to go away
Please don’t go away
Please don’t go away
Please don’t go away
Is this how it’s supposed to be
Is this how it’s supposed to be


Translation is not our thing

Why Malaysian Government insists on using English for math and 
science?

This is because the whole world uses the language as an information 
and/or technology language.  How dangerous it will be if we try to use 
Bahasa,especially in school.  See example below:-
Hardware  =  barangkeras
Software  =  baranglembut
Joystick  =  batang gembira
Plug and Play  =  cucuk dan main
Port  =  lubang
Server  =  pelayan
Client  =  pelanggan
Try to translate this:

ENGLISH:

That server gives a plug and play service to the client using either hardware or software joystick. The joystick
goes into the port of the client.
 
BAHASA:
Pelayan itu memberi pelanggannya layanan cucuk dan main dengan menggunakan batang gembira jenis keras atau lembut. 
Batang gembira itu dimasukkan ke dalam lubang pelanggan.

Is It Wrong ?

is it wrong to be studying when you are 26? or even 30? does it makes one a lesser mortal with no career in mind ? some people aren’t as fortunate as some other where they can get money to go and study, life isn’t that pretty or fare for some born without a silver spoon in their mouth,

 some less fortunate people have got to come out and work, some working with less a company , while some lucky bastard got jobs flying in the sky, does that makes them those stewards a better person to look down those who are less fortunate? just because those people are born with looks and enough luck enough to get into the airline to be a steward or stewardess. Just because Stewards and Stewardess get a high paying job cause its the risk involve working on a airline makes them better ? what morale or value do they have ? FUCK OFF CAN get your nose off peoples business and do not look down on others, just because we take a longer time to amass our own money to pay off our education doesn’t mean we dont want to climb the corporate ladder. There are people who doesn’t even finish their school but become millionaires started with almost nothing in their pockets.

those are rag to riches story but in today society I know there won’t be storoes like this you hear often enough now, as this world today its more of a paper chase paper kind of life!! without those papers employer look down with uncertainty that you can handle a certain job, so obtaining those papers (diplomas, degrees, Master or P.H.D) would gain us a status where we have a certain level of education, but education cant guarantee that these people have morale’s, and values, or even competence to posses that kind of qualification.

quoting Dr Mana said, "There are numerous PhD holders in the local universities who cannot even write a paragraph of original stuff intelligibly and speak English legibly"

So if you consider yourself lucky enough to get a job flying high as a Steward in the sky earning big fucking money do please consider about what qualification you have, and are you competent enough to be not serving coffee and tea or even serving food, mind my grammar or my vulgarities in this blog, its just that some people do not understand why these papers are so important in certain level in the work force and why some of us have to go back to University to paper chase. As much as i hate doing this.. who wouldn’t love to climb the ranks and be some high flying executive driving a BMW or MERC, but we can’t do just that. as don’t you forgot .. some people are just  lousy student learning life’s lesson just because we dont have enough money to pay for our education earlier.

i have to apologise.. this blog is not meant for everyone to read.. its just a way to vent my anger on what i heard about people saying people who goes to study later in life just cause we dont have the money when we were younger are not career minded.

i quote verbatim " what does your future husband do? oh he is only a student?"

can any of you tell me whats wrong with that sentence ?  

 

ps: no blog updates till further notice. (life is unfair isn’t it)


The Poor States of our Graduates

When our graduates are unable to secure jobs in many of the private sector companies, one begins to wonder as to why this should happen. Aren’t there enough jobs for our graduates or is it because they are not qualified enough to be employed?

Many of our IT graduates, for instance, are unemployed or doing jobs that do not commensurate their qualifications. If they cannot make it within the country they would, theoretically, find it much tougher to survive in the global market. Some employers lament that our graduates are not resourceful, creative and functional enough to survive in a challenging working environment.

In a way, these employers are right. The mode of strait-jacketing our students at the school and university levels only reminds us of conformism to the traditional school teaching where students are trained just to listen and accept what their instructors pass on to them – involving very little interactive or persuasive skills. This rhetorical mode of teaching has, to a certain extent, failed to produce graduates with an inquisitive mind.

Despite the many university hours spent on remedial work for those who lack these attributes, many have failed to acquire these decisive skills. Added to this set of symptoms is their inability to brave themselves to express their ideas and opinions of their own. Cut and paste, plagiarism and group thinking are the distinctive features seen in the work of our graduates.

Some are so bad in English that they cannot even string a simple sentence together correctly. They do not even have the proper skills to paraphrase academic work of others. The best they resort to is copying or plagiarising what others have done. This is produced in class assignments as well as in theses up to the highest level.

There are numerous PhD holders in the local universities who cannot even write a paragraph of original stuff intelligibly and speak English legibly and yet they are teaching our graduates using this medium of instruction. They seldom go beyond the stuff they have copiously written in their dissertations to improve themselves. One wonders how, in the first place, they managed to get through their studies. To add salt to injury, void of quality papers and publications, these academics are given the title of ‘professor’ merely to meet the number. All this nonsense is a telling sign that the quality of our education is at stake.

Many of our students are just exceptionally good at rote learning but not qualitative learning. They are apt to remembering notes and regurgitating them during exams. They are good at rehearsing facts but lack the skills to apply knowledge and think from out of the ordinary view points on any subject. This is, unfortunately, the setback in our education system and it is hard for students to avoid it.

These students, on the other hand, are seldom rewarded for their ability to think creatively or for their unconventional standpoints. There is a void of meaningful engagement analysis, independence of thought and support for students to think individually.

The education system should reward those who are truly au fait, ingenious and inspired and not those who wholly subscribe to the convention of copying, plagiarising and memorising notes from books and then churning them out in paper assignments and exams just to earn a degree.

Those teaching these graduates should have ample and indubitable experience and qualifications that are at par with those in the developed world and some developing countries. Employ them based on true capability before our education system becomes a laughing stock, even among the many other progressive developing countries in our region.
