Jinx... Yes! It's Jinx - The Music Writer!

Jinx.... WoW! Love his version of Lionel Richie's "Still" and his Michael Buble's "Haven't Met You Yet" acapella number... pretty cool! Worth the watch! Would love to jam with him!

A little bit about Jinx. Jinx has written music for countless TV and radio commercials internationally and was also a songwriter for Warner Chappel Music. Not content with just writing music for other people and corporations, he has gone back to writing, producing and performing songs that come from the heart.

Resdung. Love To Have Worms Crawling Out Of Your Face?

This video shows a man with worms inside his face. Those worms comes out from the pores and is moving around. The man suppose to be from Malaysia, some of them speaks in Malay and some in Chinese. According to a YouTube user comment, this is a traditional Malaysian cure for sinusitis (resdung). It's like voodoo surgery where they appear to extractinfected entrails using only their fingers.

Sinusitis is one of the most common health conditions in the United States. It is estimated that more than 37 million people suffer from sinusitis and sinusitis-related conditions each year and that more than 13 million people visit their physician each year due to chronic sinusitis. In other word, sinusitis is a prolonged inflammation of the sinus cavities brought on by a cold, allergy attack or bacterial infection.

Paranasal sinuses are air-filled spaces, communicating with the nasal cavity, within the bones of the skull and face. So in this video (after the jump), you will see MANY real worms comes out from the face of this Vietnam guy. This is a graphic video, if you think that you can’t watch this video.. just proceed to the next post in this blog.

Analysts See A Slower But Steady Property Growth In 2011

Something good to share with you guys....

By Melissa Chi
December 16, 2010

KUALA LUMPUR, Dec 16 — Analysts said today property prices next year in the Klang Valley will continue to grow but not at this year’s skyrocketing rate.
With property prices going up by more than 30 per cent in the past two years, they said many Malaysians were wondering if they should sell their properties, buy more, or just sit and wait.
Eric Ooi, the organising chairman for the 4th Malaysian Property Summit 2011, told reporters here today that the Association of Valuers, Property Managers, Estate Agents and Property Consultants (PEPS) would be bringing in experts to address the real estate concerns, especially of homebuyers and investors.
“On the local front, the economy has bounced back and the stock exchange has reached new highs, showing signs that the stimulus packages introduced after the global financial crisis have worked themselves into the system,” he said.
He added that while landed residential prices in the Klang Valley skyrocketed, especially in prime locations, other sectors are showing mixed results.
Retail is “fairly strong” but the office sector is still soft but improving, as is the industrial sector, Ooi said.
“While real estate prices compared to 25 years ago might have increased ten times, we must not forget that 25 years ago, interest rates were also very high... to a certain extent, that has cushioned its effect but not enough, I know it’s not enough,” he said, acknowledging that home prices are beyond the affordability of an average home buyer.
He said an average property, either landed or condominiums, will be about RM450,000 in the Klang Valley.
James Wong, the immediate past president of PEPS, said the country’s economy will continue to expand next year, but was also quick to add that it will be at a slower pace.
He said he expects to see a double dip recession in the U.S. and more European countries to be debt-ridden.
“So the property market in 2011 will still grow but probably it will grow at a moderate rate. So unlike the fears of the economists in China and in Singapore, you will not expect a property bubble for our country in the foreseeable future. This is because the sharp increase in property prices are only in landed residential properties, in very choice locations and there is actually a very big penned up demand for such properties, both in the Klang Valley and Penang and also in certain upmarket condominium project launching,” he said.
“There is liquidity in the market, although Bank Negara is trying to curb speculation, which is a good thing,” Ooi acknowledged.
The central bank’s imposition of a maximum loan-to-value ratio (LVR) of 70 per cent for a third and subsequent housing financing facility taken by a borrower, was seen as a timely pre-emptive measure to avert unhealthy speculative activities and a potential property bubble.
With the latest measure that has already taken effect, people buying their third and subsequent house would be required to pay a higher down-payment than the current standard minimum of 10 per cent of the value of a house.
The analysts pointed out that although they predict a steady growth, there are still a number of challenges to be aware of, that could take a negative spin on the property market.
One of them is the highly speculated snap polls expected next year.
“I think if you look at investors, in general, investors wants stability. So, whichever the government is, stability is very important. So long as, I think you don’t have the situation of hung parliament for example, then if you have a government and the government takes affirmative action... then it will have not much impact on the real estate market,” Ooi said.
There is also the question of whether there will be an increase of interest rates.
“I think over the past year, there had been increases introduced by Bank Negara but I think it is unlikely that there will be major increases in 2011 because any major increase in interest rates will affect repayments and will affect affordability. So, I don’t expect interest rates to increase substantially,” he said.
Wong admitted that a large number of property prices in the Klang Valley are beyond the means of most young professionals as well as those who are preparing to start a family.
“One way of overcoming it is for the government to open up lands for developers who wants to build affordable housing and probably provide incentives for developers who wish to do so,” he suggested.
Choy Yue Kwong, PEPS president, insisted that investing in properties is one of the “safest” way to invest.
“Everybody knows property is the hedge against inflation. It’s the safest one, when you buy a property, if you can hold, it will go up. The only problem is when people over leverage,” he said.
The 4th Malaysian Property Summit 2011 will be held on January 18 at the Sime Darby Convention Centre and speakers will be presenting their property market outlook for the year.

Rihanna - Only Girl - A Capella Cover (Is It Really A Capella? I Doubt!)

"A capella" is a voice, or voices singing without instrumental accompaniment. Usually voices singing, harmonizing and mimicking instruments.

I do really enjoyed this song. I thought it was well done or even better than the original. But I kinda have a really hard time believing that as if it is just voices and mouth. The question is, if it is so A Capella, why is it digitally re-mastered? I still prefer the acapella done by Sam Tsui!

This sounded so fake... compared to.....

Minnesota Vikings - Metrodome Roof Collapse

The giant inflatable roof above the Minneapolis Metrodome collapsed on Sunday under the weight of a massive snowstorm that swept across the upper Midwest. The weight of more than a foot of snow was too much for the Metrodome roof and it collapsed overnight. The 580,000lbs roof, which is made of Teflon-coated fibreglass, fell in just hours before Minnesota Vikings were due to play the New York Giants. That game had been moved to Monday because of concerns about the snow on the dome roof. The dome collapse came long after the snow had stopped.

Here's some footages captured by FOX

Do We Continue To Be Ignorant Or Do We Deter?

When I read about the article of Alviss Kong in The Star, I decided to browse further to see who he was in facebook and what was it all about. I also wanted to know what made him committed suicide. From facebook, I found that he had an accumulative number of at least 100,000 people liking his page on different Alviss Kong pages. Even in his personal blog (which has been private by now) has hit 29,000 views.

I know that the world-wide-web's social media has one way or another changed our lifestyles' metaphor. Individuals are more open on their feelings and thoughts in the web and often opting to penned it down on their blog unlike the olden days where we write it down on personal diary. Sometimes, they vent it out on Twitter or Facebook status updates too. So because of this, as a friend, parent, or family members, should we now ought to be a little bit more sensitive towards the action and feelings of our loved ones when they post messages alike Alviss? It is clearly shown that nowadays social media has become one of the preferred channel for individuals to gamble out their last resort before taking dramatic actions against themselves a.k.a. ending their life. It kept me wondering if social media is starting to burst it's bubble by turning the other way round.

This evolution is worrying and I now totally understand why does parents wanting or insisting in one way or another to be friends with their children on their facebook page. This is because, they hope that they could stop their kids in time before it leads to some unfavorable dramatic actions. I don't blame them. I do hope youth will not try to emulate Alviss Kong. If there is something that you could not solve, turn to your trusted friends or family. They will help get you out of it.

If friends of families were to be sensitive enough on the last 45 minutes countdown of Alviss Kong after he posted those messages up on facebook, some sort of actions could have been taken to avoid such saddening incident. But nevertheless, we learn from this lesson. This is the second time people posting shout out in facebook before they take their own life.

Rest In Peace Alviss! I do feel sad reading about your article.







This is the message he posted on his Facebook account:

The photo above was taken by Alviss shortly before he committed suicide. You can feel his sorrow as tears flowed from his eyes.

For those of you who wants to know more, Josh Lim has wrote a summary of the incident and I hope we learn from it. Here goes....


I read some disturbing news in my Facebook feed, and clicked it. In summary, here’s what happened. Most of the official articles are in Chinese, and some people are adding unnecessary details. Here’s just the facts in summary.
Just the facts:
  • A 22 year old (Born 22nd May 1988) , ALVISS KONG (Jiangshi Feng (IT staff) committed suicide by jumping off the 14th floor of Ketumbar Heights, Cheras.
  • Before commiting suicide, he posted a note to his Facebook profile page. Prior to jumping, he took one last photo and even posted a message 45 minutes before.
  • From the note, it can be inferred that he no longer wanted to live after his girlfriend broke up with him.
  • Alviss Kong ’s body damaged a car upon impact, and he lay bleeding until emergency services took him to the hospital.
  • He was pronounced dead at 9AM on the morning of December 10th.
  • He lived on the 5th floor of the same apartment, and has a brother and a sister
  • Prior to jumping off the 14th floor, he went to a tea stall near his apartment.
  • Both Alviss Kong and his girlfriend had blogs.
  • They had been together for 4 months, and this was Alviss’s second, and last relationship.
  • From a source on FB, I found out that Alviss Kong used to work in Berjaya Times Square. He also used to go clubbing a lot, and he liked to wear a plaster on his face as a fashion statement.
There’s a tragic amount of disrespectful comments in the FB page and some of the forums and blogs from “keyboard warriors”, unfortunately. If you’re reading this, please don’t add to it. I thought this tweet summarizes it pretty well: http://www.twitlonger.com/show/7daaj8
On Thursday 9th December 2010,  said:
People~ please respect the late alviss kong,4 months doesn’t mean that the love is nt deep,respect by nt saying him dumb or what,n fr u guys who wanna scold or slap the girl,for what?it’s nt even her wrong n we outsiders will nvr know what’s the real prob between them~
Screenshot from Alviss Kong’s blog. It’s closed now, but the Google Cache is available:
It’s quite sad reading about Alviss Kong’s perfect day with her (clubbing, school, etc) especially knowing what happened.

Alviss Kong's Perfect, Unforgettable Day
Media
Blogs
My thoughts:
This is particularly depressing for me given that Alviss is quite likely someone I have probably met or seen while clubbing. Someone that I have 15 mutual friends with on Facebook. And he’s a blogger. A girl in my Facebook list wrote on her wall about how she was very happy to have been his friend, as she used to club with him and he always had a “cute plaster” on his face, and spend late nights talking on the phone with him and sharing secrets. It’s especially sad knowing that Alviss was a fashionable, good looking guy, had lots of friends and people to talk to (judging from his pics, Facebook profile and blog posts) - but still chose to commit suicide.
I know we’ve all ‘been there’. Where you just want to turn the off switch. It really isn’t the way to go about it.
Please if you’re even thinking of suicide. There’s always a way out. And really. There will always be other girls.
Please do give them a call before you do anything - this is a counselling/suicide prevention hotline.

Rest in peace, Alviss.

Butt Crack Blunders!

Butt Crack, as termed by Wikipedia, is called the intergluteal cleft, also known as the natal cleft, is the groove between the buttocks that runs from just below the sacrum to the perineum, so named because it forms the visible border between the external rounded protrusions of the Gluteus maximus muscles. The intergluteal cleft is located directly above the anus. Yes, it's called butt crack!

Despite who you are and what's your status, we try our best from falling into style blunders. Whether it may be a planned disclosure or an accidental mishap, butt cleavage is a common mistake.

While I was having dinner yesterday, I can't help but notice the most heinous, awkward, and impossible-to-forget butt crack right before my meal. It's kinda wanting to tell me, what goes in from the top, is gonna have a hard time popping out down there. Go get yourself a decent piece of underwear dude!

Pinoy Songs Are Really Good! Why Isn't It Brought To Malaysia? Just Be Careful With My Heart OK?

Please Be Careful With My Heart! This song has been following me for years. I saw a friend who is only 21 this year hearing this song from his msn and I asked him "How on earth do you know this song? You were not even born yet!" He then told me the singer of his version was Tay Ke Wei and Christian Bautista and I went Ah Ha! No wonder... it's the remake version. Anyhow it's in a mixture of chinese and english. Not too bad I would say!

Pinoy songs are really good and I JUST DO NOT UNDERSTAND why is it not promoted in Malaysia! People like Eric Santos, Sarah Geronimo, Jose Mari Chan, Mark Bautista, Christian Bautista and Gary Valenciano are having songs that are a killer! Each time you listen to it, you'd melt!

Here's the version by Tay Ke Wei and Christian Bautista


And here's the original

Let's Hear Negaraku In Cha Cha & Rock? LOL!


"Negaraku" (English: My Country) is the national anthem of Malaysia. "Negaraku" was selected as a national anthem at the time of the Federation of Malaya's independence from Britain in 1957. The tune was originally used as the state anthem of Perak[1], which was adopted from a popular French melody titled "La Rosalie" composed by the lyricist Pierre-Jean de Béranger. - Wikipedia

Time has evolved, including how we present the song as well. We hear the song during airplay on our mainstream media, at the end of a sports game (when Malaysia wins), on official events etc.... but I have never heard our national anthem being sung in the style like what our American stars attempted it as someone (forgotten who) told me that our national anthem could not be sung in such manner as it would show disrespect. It's a national anthem, not a pop song... but look what I found....



The deeper I looked for the song in youtube I found more versions of our national anthem apart of the Namawee's parody of Negaraku in other titles. Hence, I Wiki-ed for it.

[In 2007, a YouTube video featuring a parody of the Negaraku anthem caused controversy in Malaysia. The video, named Negarakuku, features Wee Meng Chee, a Malaysian student studying in Taiwan, who weaves the Negaraku into a Chinese language rap. The Flag of Malaysia was featured at the backdrop. This controversial video caused outrage among most members of the Malaysian cabinet. The song criticises the government and pejoratively speaks about the Malays, the primary ethnic group of Malaysia.
Lokananta, Indonesia's state-owned recording company alleged that "Negaraku" imitated Indonesia's song titled "Terang Boelan". "Terang Boelan" itself is a song adapted from French song "La Rosalie".[4] . This continues the conflict that had already been sparking since the first days of the independence between the people of Malaysia and Indonesia, mainly using the Internet as the battleground. Soekarno told his people not to sing "Terang Boelan" anymore because its composition was and is similar to "Negaraku". - Wikipedia]

Anyway, here's a quick mash up of the Negaraku in different version.

If These Boys Were My Son, I'd Beat The Shit Out Of Them!

These are young boys, so young and already indulging themselves into gang of mobsters. Here they are beating up a young helpless innocent boy from Kepong. Hooligans.

The links to their facebook is found on this youtube video info! If you are the parents of these youngsters, DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT!



Another one...

I Would Love To Get Myself Into One Of These Rides. Wanna Join Me?

The Griffon roller coaster at Busch Gardens Williamsburg, is a Bolliger & Mabillard diving machine that now reigns as the tallest and fastest dive coaster. American Coaster Enthusiasts and members of the media got a sneak peek at the European-themed adventure park.

Each train consists of three rows of ten seats. Once strapped in, the loading platform floor drops and guests hear, "Now, prepare to enjoy the power and speed of the mythical Griffon." After a right turn out of the station, riders climb a 45-degree lift hill running about 10 feet per second,(6.8 mph) 205 feet up. Then they make another turn to the right and face the Royal Palace Theatre. The trains pause on a holding brake for five seconds before dropping 205 feet at 90° hitting 71 mph. The ride then goes into a 146-foot Immelmann loop before making a sweeping turn upward to the left and into the block brake. Riders will then drop 130 feet down at 87° toward The Rhine River and into another 100-foot Immelmann inversion. Finally, riders will exit a bunny hop into a water splash pool. Each of the three trains produces a different water spray pattern up to 45 feet high. Riders then encounter a small dip just before the final brake run and station.

This is one scary ride. Doesn't just looking at the video scare you?

15th Nov 2010 - Tornadic Waterspout in Penang? How Come We Know Nothing About It?


Was it reported in the papers or was I just pretty ignorant of what is happening? I've checked from the internet and there's no such report from the mainstream media! Ridiculous! Oh yeah, I forgotten they only report on politics. It is proven that youtube is more reliable for updated news!

How come Penang has been experiencing tornado nowadays? It's the second time I see such videos. So what's the next natural disaster that's gonna happen in Penang?

Looks Like Piranha And Sharks Aren't The Only Fish That Eats Human

Tigerfish can be considered Africa's equivalent of the South American piranha, though they belong to a completely different family, as they are famous for their ferocity when hunting. They have razor-sharp teeth that are interlocking, along with streamlined, muscular bodies built for speed.

Tigerfish are aggressive predators. A tigerfish has a gas-filled sac in its body that it uses as a sound receiver. This transmits vibrations from the water, enabling it to detect any animals nearby and respond accordingly. A school of juveniles can tackle animals of almost any size, including any land animals that stray too close to the water's edge. Adults tend to travel in smaller groups of four or five, but they are no less dangerous. Even an individual can take down prey as large as itself.

When food is scarce or the competition for food is too great, tigerfish may resort to cannibalism. This is particularly common in the dry season. Tigerfish have also been known to attack humans, these attacks can be devastating owing to their sharp teeth and aggressive hunting tactics.

Luckily I do not like going into the water. That's what scares me most!

What Happened To You Winter Tyres? You Made Those Buses And Cars Skiing

Advertising. The Most Powerful Source In Driving Sales. But Are We Doing It Right?





The Evolution

Back in the olden days, life was easy. Working husbands would return home daily with their family members greeting them at the doorsteps; with meals awaiting on the dining table. Supermarkets and entertainment outlets were limited. These family spends most of their time at home, reading newspapers, watching television or even picnic at the park.

In these recent years Malaysian households have undergone tremendous transformation following the changes in the economy. The shift from agricultural commodities to industrial production has increased job opportunities and changing lifestyles. Family mobility has expanded, individuals are spending more time out-of-home as a result of their modern schedules.

The Time Spent At Home

Urban Malaysia showcases various shopping malls, culture and cuisine in thoroughly modern settings. And with great offers of perfect holiday getaways, an individual only spend an estimate of 35% of their time at home.

A typical time spent of an individual these days would be mainly for business, travelling, lifestyle activities and most of the time, on the road, in short, OUT-OF-HOME.

Advertising

As we all remembered, advertising was way easier back in the 80’s. Newspapers, television, posters, leaflets and sandwich boards were only the few media that you would need to consider for advertising.

These mediums focused mainly to households where consumers were relaxing or spending time together at home.

But time has changed… Today, emancipation leads to media explosion, globalization, and a knowledged society. Even one of the world’s oldest advertising mediums, outdoor advertising, has been evolving and is now classified under Out of Home to encompass the many different formats.

OUT-OF-HOME (OOH) Advertising

Out of Home (OOH) advertising in Malaysia is presently experiencing phenomenal growth focusing on consumers when they are commuting in transit, in commercial areas and in public places. OOH advertising formats fall into billboard, ambient, transit, or even point-of-sale (retail).

Outdoor advertising has been around as long as advertising itself but this medium is showing new life. Traditional billboard remain the predominant form of outdoor advertising. However there’s been explosive growth in ambient advertising where the advertising is distributed to audience in such places as retail outlets, office buildings, shopping malls, theatres, restaurants and convenience stores. Transit advertising is featured on anything which moves from buses, trains, buses, taxis, and mobile trucks. Point of Sale relates to the retail arena while ambient commonly refers to ‘surroundings’ – elevators, lifts, and other alternative spaces, eg. building wraps, 3D free standing structures and plasma TV wraps in restaurants and coffee shops mainly seen in urban centers.

The Complexity That Cluttered The Minds

Out of Home (OOH) advertising has long been one of the favorite medium for media buyers. The last few years have seen particularly dramatic growth, especially in and around the major cities of Malaysia. The primary, and widely accepted, reason for outdoor advertising is that it provides mass-market visibility for clients and large canvases on which to present bold messages and stunning creative.

There are signs, however, that the many mix media afforded by outdoor advertising may be getting choked. Outdoor has become too crowded and it is impossible to stand out amid the clutter. The outdoor medium has become a victim of its own success, and some of its intrinsic strengths are beginning to become diluted. To a certain extend, if it is not carefully innovating and reinventing themselves to stay relevant to the most demanding advertisers, it will become a potential blind spot.

Captivation and The Platform That Will Stand Out From The Clutter
In my personal opinion, to advertisers, don't you think that you should capture your target market during their dwell time? Wouldn't it be good if we were to place our adverts at advertising mediums that really stands out, with your consumers giving their undivided attention to them? That would be the best medium to roll out your campaign right? Also, do consider having advertising mediums that will require your target market wait for more than 5 mins looking at it, do nothing else, see nothing else, but only looking at your advert. Wouldn't this be the most impactful and best advertising investment?

Great Aussie TVC Campaign! 5,804,546 hits!!!

One of the best Don't Drink And Drive Campaign TV Commercial. It's pretty intense and well produced. However I must say that if you get caught for drinking and driving by our PDRM, this would not be the treatment that you'll get. You'll get a lot of threatening and shouting or even bashing before heading to the lock up.

By the way, it has 5,804,546 hits!!!

Ready For Monday?

I found these pictures on the internet and thought that it is very hilarious although some of the warnings are true and real. I hope it brightens up your monday with some laughter.

This Girl Should Be Crushed To Death





In the beginning of the video, I thought it was another loving girl caring for her pet. But not so after seeing towards the end of the video...

For whatever reason, this chinese girl's action in the video is very cruel towards animal. I guess action should be taken against her. I can't help it but it kept me wondering if they are buying the rabbits to be eaten for dinner or rearing as a pet. I really do hope that they are treating it as dinner. What she is doing is very awful and from how she is prepared with the glass panel, I do not think it is the girl's first time.

Her friends are sitting there to enjoy the show? Yikes! These girls are sick. I really pity those rabbits still alive in the cage.

 Judging from the conversation they had, I think they are from China.

Are You Ready For A Better Solution?

5 days ago I went to the pet shop to get my cat litter as it was running low. It's time to replenish anyway. I've always been buying the crystal alike cat litter as it is considered one of the best so far.

Although the cats may be messing the floor with a few bits of crystals scattered around the floor after they do their business, however, the maintenance is generally pretty low.

I'm a happy owner of 2 6-year old male tabby cats with one of them, a mixed furball where he will have a few clumps of litter stucked on his ass and feet whenever he uses the toilet. Worst if I were to use the clumping litter. The clumps would get stucked to the feet of both my cats. I would feel like my house is as if undergoing renovation that will never end cause of the powder flakes. It's forever dusty, sandy and dirty.

Also, you do not need an alarm or a reminder to tell you that it's been 3 days and it's time to change your cat litter. The odor itself will. Even if you can stand the smell,  the boys (cat) will throw tantrum at you telling you that it's time for you to change by standing right in front of the litter box. Even they can't stand the smell! This applies for both crystal and powder cat litter.

The problem is, so far I could not find a litter that will suit both my boys and make the least mess not until I saw EverClean lying on top of the rack!

I decided to give this brand a try. So far, to my surprise, it is amazingly effective! This litter has very little odor comparatively to any other brands that I have tried. It's been 5 days unkept and yet, the formula simply mask the odor pretty well. To my amazement, the floor is just as clean. My boys does not get cemented feet with this product.

Apparently EverClean clumps nicely. The clumps do not break apart when you are scooping and this is very good. The clumps, to me, is like cement stones that reduces odor. It would be a good try if you are fed up with the current cat litter of yours. Warning, it does cost you a bit comparatively to the other litters. But then again, it's definitely worth the try right?

This is how the packaging looks like

I'm like picking up clumps of stones.

Isn't this wonderful? No dust, No smell, only stones.

The Peak - Madame Tussauds Hong Kong (Wax Museum)

We visited Victoria Peak when I was in Hong Kong. It is one of the most popular attractions in Hong Kong. We took a tram from Sheung Wan to Central and had a walk of 20 mins up the hill to The Peak Tram Station. From the tram, you'll see all highest building in Hong Kong surrounding you. Don't miss the Bank of China!

To reach The Peak, you can go by public bus or taxi, but for a more spectacular ride is to hop aboard the Peak Tram at the Lower Peak Tram Terminal.

If you have actually purchased the 3 day pass from the airport, you would need to purchased tickets to go up the Peak. The ticketing officer gave me a scare when I enquired and showed him my pass and asked if it was usable, he took it from me, scanned it and told me that I have been reloaded HKD 200 in the card and asked me for money. Luckily I could ask for refund if I have not used up the money in the card.


When you are on the tram, if possible, sit on the right hand side so that you can see the skyline of the spectacular Hong Kong. During our trip we didn't get to see much view cause it was really cloudy. The railway will glide 373 metres to the top and you will actually feel a force of climbing although you are on the train. Just that this time, you don't need to use energy.

At the Upper Peak Terminal, you'll be able to locate Madamme Tussauds easily. To me, it is fun to visit this place especially the special horror room called 'SCREAM - Run For Your Life' where it's a mixture of wax and human scaring you. I didn't want to go in there this time as there were nobody else going with us and I do not want to be the only one being scared! The sentiment would not be funny and I would probably fight back and give them a good whack. But, it sure does look scary from the outside!

I must say that the wax figurines are really quite impressive although some does look quite fake. I kept wondering to myself if they have the exact precise details of the actual person. I actually pulled the hair of Michele Yeoh to check if it is real or fake. LOL! And also, I have a feeling that they left out something very imported for the men wax figurines. Their groins... very flat... no buldge at all. LOL!

Here are some of my favourite picks from the photo collection of mine...

Princess Diana. She looked so pretty and real.

I would never be able to see Pavarotti in real. However this is how he looked like.

This wax figurine looked so real although I do not know who is she. (Can you tell me what's her name in the comment box below?)

Johnny Depp

Leon Lai. He looked real tho, but don't they have a younger looking version of him? He looked so old.

My old time favourite.... Beckham!

This fella Dao Ming, he's damn bloody tall. The tip of my head is only at his chest!

Elvis Presley - King of Rock 'n Roll

Tina Turner. Didn't look that real rite?

Although The Beatles doesn't look that real, but I do like it.

THIS... IS.... MAJOR! Madonna!

Michael Jackson. When he was black.

Teressa Teng

Anita Mui. I seriously can't recognise her. Where's the famous Anita Mui mole??? Besides her eyes, everything looked so fake.

And lastly, Miriam Yeung...

This is a place that you MUST visit when you are in Hong Kong. Don't miss it!!!!!
