    One Step Closer to the Maxis Om Nom Nom Race

    As you can see below, I always have something in my mouth. And no, it's not anything sexual.

    Whether it's 1) ice cream,

    2) Snacks:

    3) or even unrecognizable food lumps:

    there’s surely nothing that interests me as much as FOOD!

    Everywhere I go it’s food, food,

    and more food!

    Recently Nuffnang announced the Om Nom Nom Race…I’m so joining winning it! This competition is organised by Maxis and we’ll be using the iPhone 4, the Finder301 application and Wireless Broadband to find 5 restaurant locations then do an impromptu review ON THE SPOT!

    Maxis Om Nom Nom Race

    I’d love to join the Om Nom Nom Race because I’ve tried so much food from all over the country, good, bad, western, Indian, Chinese, mamak, fine dining, pasar malam dining…I’ve tried it all. My awesome team members of Burpzilla are Samantha, Li May and Donny, all food aficionados as you can see from their posts below:

    Li May: Click here
    Donny: Click here

    We will be blogging live, tweeting live (@nickleschow!) and updating our facebook status as we go, all with Maxis iPhone 4 (which I own myself) and the Wireless Broadband connection. Can’t wait for this Saturday!

    I love eating so much that I have to wear an L size…maybe it’s time for me to lose weight to fit in an M?

    Nope, don't think it's gonna happen!

    A Funny Picture A Day

    This picture is so funny, I crack up every time I look at it. Perhaps it's Darth Vader's expression?

    While I Was Away

    Yes, I know. I haven't been updating my blog in a million years. Donny was asking why I didn't update my blog for so long the other day. Samantha asked me too, in a somewhat friendly "Oii, update your blog lah!" tone. Many apologies for not updating my blog for almost a month, it has been a pretty crazy month as I was super busy + lacked inspiration. Not that I didn't want to, it's because I couldn't. 

    I'm trying to kick start my blog-writing habits again after this month-long layoff, because honestly, I think I do miss blogging quite a little bit. So, while I was away, I: 

    1) Wrote, wrote and wrote
    It has been an incredibly busy month at work due to all the Hollywood awards season, and especially when you are short-handed. One of the main reasons why I didn't blog as much is because by the time I got home from work, I was so tired and I got so sick of writing, I didn't wanna write anymore. But you gotta admit, I wrote some kick-ass articles, like these: Spoilt little rich kids, Before they were famous: Celebrity odd jobs, Here comes the Hollywood bride and TV's hottest doctors to name a few. And the Entertainment desk won a total of RM23.70 in the new office incentive system. 

    2) Found someone special
    And her name is Samantha. And she's lovely and sweet. And she's an angel. And I really like her =) A lot! *Pic has been Sam-approved!

    3) Jambalya-ed!
    It's the first play I have been to in awhile and I really enjoyed it. It was quirky, and funny. And yeah, Sam was the stage manager for the night.

    4)  Watched the Biggest Loser Asia Finale live
    Was never really a fan of the series, but it was a pretty intense finale especially when you watch it live. Didn't appreciate the 6-hour long taping of the finale, but thankfully I had Donny and Aaron to bitch with at the studio.

    5) Watched (500) Days of Summer a million times a week. It quickly became one of my favorite romcoms of all time. Also became an instant fan of Zooey Deschanel; she is super cute and pretty (albeit looking a lot like Katy Perry in the movie). Still bummed that (500) Days of Summer wasn't nominated for Best Picture at the Oscars. 

    6) Potlucked and amateur karaoked singing with the colleagues
    It's been awhile since we the crazy MSN-ers hung out, and it was Reta's idea to have a potluck session at Amir's place. Plenty of booze, food, JUNK food, laughing and amateur singing ensued. It was really fun, should do this more often. Sorry I had to ditch early though, guys! Should have stayed a bit later to see Lydia stripping Shaza.

    7) Went to Singapore with the girl
    It was a tiring trip, but it was well-worth it because I went with her...and her parents! Initially we wanted to go to Universal Studios, but it was really expensive (say, S$72?) and it rained the whole day. In the end, we took a bus to Vivo City, waited three hours for it to open and we walked and walked and walked till it's time for us to head back. And we had macaroons! 

    8) Went to the hot air balloon show
    ...just to have the rain ruin the party =( We wanted to see the Darth Vader hot air balloon so badly, and it was half way blown up until the rain decided to play Anakin Skywalker and ruined it for us. Oh well, at least it was fun while it lasted. Sorry dear, we go again next year OK? =) Hopefully it doesn't rain.

    9) Am still a huge Megan Fox fan
    =D *grins sheepishly*

    Meeting An American Idol - Part I

    Anyone who knows me well would know that I'm a big Adam Lambert fan and how much I love his music. No offence to Kris Allen though - I do believe he is a very good singer and he deserves to win Idol - but I prefer Lambert's flamboyance and theatrics. But of course, when I found out that Kris will be coming down to Malaysia for a meet-the-fans session and an exclusive showcase, being an entertainment writer and an American Idol junkie, I thought I shouldn't give up an opportunity to meet an Idol in person. After all, Kris Allen is the first and only American Idol who has ever made a trip to our small little country. Lucky right, we all?

    According to the people who gave me the passes to see Kris Allen in person (thank you, Star World!), Kris Allen touched down the night before. I'm pretty sure there were hundreds of screaming fans who welcomed him, and let me assure you I wasn't one of them in case you were wondering. 

    The press conference (aka our first glimpse of the man himself) took place at a posh club called the GSix Club in the Gardens Mall and trust me, when Kris came out to take the stage for a brief Q&A session with us media monkeys, there were lots of screaming - from the members of the media! Yeah, we know we should all be professional, but sometimes we can't help ourselves. I mean, c'mon, what would you do if you see, let's say, Brad Pitt in person? Wouldn't you wanna give him a hug too? And here's a funny thing: my fellow R&D 09 buddy, Hitz.FM DJ Jin hosted the press conference! Haven't seen that guy in awhile, and we bumped into each other there. 

    Kris was exactly like what you see him on TV: a little shy, very down to earth and a typical boy-next-door who could sing. He is also a funny chap - something I didn't really know 'cos on Idol, we saw him as the shy one who usually kept to himself. But no, this Kris Allen was uncharacteristically funny and bratty; he even teased a reporter who asked him a question. Cheeky!

    But one thing though: Kris is actually much shorter than he looks on TV. Like, way much shorter. And I'm proud to say I'm TALLER than an American Idol (*cue evil laugh*), although he is richer, more popular, more good-looking and more talented than me. Me 1 - Kris Allen 100! Oh well!

    Here are more pics of the Allen from the press conference:
