The Bangsar Boy: Looking Cool For School

Okay, so one thing I have never been associated with is the word “Cool”. Some people might disagree, considering the crowd that I hang around with, but back in my school days, I was anything but. So I’m not sure why the sub-editors chose this headline for my The Bangsar Boy article published today. So, […]

Martell VSOP Rising Personality of 2008

So, I spent the night with some friends (left work early, will suffer tomorrow – or rather, today) at the Martell Personality of the Year event held at KLpac. Elaine, who was also there as JP‘s guest (and one of four celebrity models for the auction segment), texted me earlier and said that the organisers […]

Struggling to understand politicians

So I was reading this article today about Former Parti Keadilan Rakyat Youth leader Ezam Mohd Nor rejoining UMNO when I came across this quote by Pak Lah: “He wants to come back to Umno and he will continue with the struggles of Umno according to the party’s goal and direction, and not Parti Keadilan.” […]

RIP Sydney Pollack

Got an SMS Alert from The Star this morning: “Oscar-winning director Sydney Pollack, of Tootsie and Out of Africa fame, dies of cancer at age 73.” Yahoo! headlined this AP story. I don’t know much about his work but I think I first heard about him when Tom Cruise starred in The Firm. Later, just […]

Election blues

Running around today, I totally forgot that I hadn’t read the newspaper. I also forgot that the article on the BRATs programme which I am currently facilitating was out.

I want to be a Billionaire too!

Just a quick note before I get on with my post. Am in Penang for a few days to run The Star’s BRATs programme. Access to the net isn’t a problem, but not sure if I can find the time. Will try though but just wanted to give the two people (hi mum, hi dad) […]

Indiana Jones: My thoughts

So much happening today. I missed American Idol final performances cos I was at Cineleisure Damansara to watch the new Indiana Jones movie. So, I have the performances loading on YouTube as I write this (should have fully loaded by the time I’m done). And the reason why I’m not in bed is cos I’m […]

V(V)esak Day

A couple of nights ago, my friend Larry was in town from Singapore and we met up for drinks along Jalan Bukit Bintang. I told him I couldn’t stay out late because it was Wesak Day the next morning, and he asked me, “Why is it spelt with a W? Not with a V?” I’m […]
