Kungfu competitions on Chinese TV

I was at the gym when I ‘saw’ the show. Each episode, 2 kungfu schools are invited, typically with different kungfu styles. Then the show put the fighters into respective weight class and let them slog it out.

I wasn’t impressed at all.

I probably watched too much of Hong Kong kungfu/fighting movies. I was expecting something more polished and smooth, and gritty… something like Fight Quest when they learned Sanda.

Instead, what I saw was the typical kungfu pose before the engagement. Then when they engage in a fight, it looked like a hybrid of judo plus boxing plus kicking. Sure, there are a few signature moves once in a while. But nothing interesting.

Each bout was quick. Within 3-4 moves, one fella is down and point is given. The fighter then would have to stand up and reset the fight. This probably indicate the effectiveness of kungfu. If you’re good, you can take down an enemy within 3-4 moves.

My point is, I couldn’t feel any ‘kick’ from watching. In fact, it was boring as hell. And the fights weren’t fought in close distance. The fighters were standing far away. I wonder if it would be effective in a train or roadside where space is small. Close quarter fighting is totally different. And I wonder if kungfu would work when dealing with street fighting and self-defence.

If you want to learn how to defend yourself on the streets, I guess the best bet would be Kajukenbo of US, Krav Maga of Israel, and bodybuilding (no one ever dares to mess with a big guy). I would like to pick up kajukenbo (savate and taichi too), it’s ghetto and gritty. And they literally do street fights. This is as underground and ghetto as it gets.

Grow Cube

For those with time to kill, here’s a Flash game that will kill a few brain cells. Grow Cube.

*Clickety click –> www.eyezmaze.com/grow/cube

It’s a simple game, and very cute to watch. It’s like watching cartoons! I love it! Even now that I know the correct order, I still play it just to watch the Cube grow. =)

You simply click on the items on the side. Those items will develop/grow as the game advances. The objective is to find out the order to grow the items. Each item can possibly affect the growth of other items depending on the order of your choice. Get the correct order and all items will grow to max level (each item’s max level is different).

It took me a few days, I think, to solve this game. D@mn nice! Go play Grow Cube now!
And oh… do try out other Grow games by Eyemaze too. They are just as fun.

A nutty old horse’s inane rumblings

Holy motherload of crap heavens!

WTF?! Look at this ridiculous sh!t spewing from the old horse’s month — ‘Lou Ma’ (in Cantonese, you know who I’m referring to =)

http://test.chedet.com/che_det/2008/09/snippets-6.html

This is bad and this is also seditious. What in the heck is in that senile old man’s kepala otak? What he said is totally irresponsible! So old already, minum so much kopi already, still wants to ka-ka-cau-cau. Pfffft!

Seriously, Chinese Malaysians have no problems our Malay brethren. Our problem is with the corrupted BN/UMN0 gahmen. Like I said before, corruption, extortion & injustice doesn’t discriminate which pocket it takes its money from, or which life it destroys.
Whether a brown man’s pockets, yellow man’s pocket pockets, a dark man’s pockets, a Banana’s pocket, a Coconut’s* pocket (*coconut = Indian version of Banana, brown on the outside, white inside), a dan-lain-lain’s pockets… semua kena. As long as there are coins in it, their greedy little fingers will squirm its way in to grab it.

What’s ‘farnie’ is that the idiots there actually agrees with Lou Ma about Malays losing powers and what not. LMAO!

Eh brader… s’ka-ang ni makan pun tak cukup, k’orang masih ada mood nak Ketuanan-Melayu sini, keris-bathe-in-Chinese-blood sana, ke? Baik kita berkerjasamalah dan halau pontianak yang dah lama hisap darah rakyat sampai kering kontang. Today, it’s no longer Malay Dilemma — it’s MALAYSIAN DILEMMA. BN/UMN0 doesn’t want to see us united, and the stupid people above ikut secara buta. (Entah nasi apa dia orang makan? Aku suruh mak aku jangan beli.)

So, as a Malay… you betui-betui takut Malayu akan hilang dari dunia. So what to do?

Work harder lah, push for a fairer gahmen/system in Malaysia so that your rights will be taken care of. Look, you’re the biggest number in Malaysia. That makes you the Big Brother. And each of the other siblings have different abilities and different views on issues. Instead of taking care of your younger siblings and talk things out with us, you bully us kau-kau. WTF is this?!

In the mean time, our neighbours laugh at us that there’s no love amongst brothers in a family. Are we seriously stupid or what?! And they take full advantage of this situation. Oh yes, they do.

Guangzhou… here I come!

So kiss me and smile for me
Tell me that you’ll wait for me
Hold me like you’ll never let me go
Cause I’m leavin’ on a jet plane
Don’t know when I’ll be back again
Oh baby, I hate to go…
[Haih… no one to kiss me and hold me. *sob* Tiba-tiba feeling emo…]
X^D

Well, I’ll be back on the 30th. See you guys then! There’ll be lots of photos to share. I’ll be covering a wedding too. Henry’s cousin in Guangzhou is getting married. So He invited me along with him to visit GZ and jalan-jalan. Of course, he had to bluff his cousin that I’m a professional kamera-men. So off I go to GZ!

Oh, due to the fact that my flight is to arrive in Macau before Henry’s uncle pick us up… I figure I might as well drop by the casinos and have some fun. Hah hah! Please hope that I win some money. You’ll never know… when I come back and see some well wishers leaving a comment or two here, I might belanja minum or something.

Refine & Define 2008 – The Dance Space

Oh, if I have not mentioned it before… now I’m telling you.

I sent in a form for the Men’s Health Refine & Define Challenge 2008. And I am selected as one of the 20 finalist. Woohoo! The challenge is to turn me into a real man’s man! X^D

So dancing is the third module out of 10. Off I went to The Dance Space in Plaza Damas on Saturday morning. The Dance Space is actually quite small lah. It’s just one big square room with wooden parque floor and a counter.


The Dance Space. That’s Mie posing for this shot. I put the magazine there simply for promotional purposes, and also to give the photo a sense of context, it is a Men’s Health event after all. flickr

I forgot who our dance instructor’s name. She’s a Thai and she taught us hip-hop… Aiseh, what is this lah. I don’t even go clubbing, so hip-hop basically doesn’t mean much to me. I was hoping that they might teach us some latin dance or some simple waltz. But I guess no guy will want to hold another guy’s hand and waist in a waltz. Ah well… hip-hop it is.

Contrary to my initial believe, hip-hop is actually not easy. I had the chance to learn a few steps from a friend last time. I just can’t synchronise my hands with my legs with my hips with my butts. Either I looked like a rusted robot with jammed gears, or a bone-less octopus squirming when I dance hip-hop or go to the clubs. I like dancing, but I’m no good at it.

I stood at the front. Why? Because I’d rather face the dance instructor’s back than to have 19 guys’ ass poking my eyes. I was just right behind the the instructor… and a few times she jokingly [& sarcastically] mentioned not to stare at her ass. Ooops, I must have overdone it. X^D


That’s Alif feigning exhaustion. flickr

After 2 hours, everyone was tired. There was a lot of movement, ass grinding, booty shaking & blur faces. If you want aerobic exercise the fun way, take hip hop lessons. We split and I went off for lunch with Alif, Dixon & Amran.

Belkin support in Malaysia

Belkin Malaysia phone customer service technical support
Belkin Malaysia phone customer service technical support
Belkin Malaysia phone customer service technical support
Belkin Malaysia phone customer service technical support
Belkin Malaysia phone customer service technical support

That should do it. People who Googles ‘Belkin Malaysia’ should reach here and actually get somewhere, instead of jalan mati by calling Belkin’s phone number.

Call AVF at 03-7783 3010
http://www.avf.com.my/contactus.asp
Address: No 14, Jalan 4/152,
Taman Perindustrian O.U.G,
Jalan Puchong, 58200
Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

I can’t paste the bl00dy Wikimapia map here. Stupid WordPress can’t seem to recognise html codes. It only accepts its own codes! It’s just like Apple+Steve Jobs — trying to take over my brains. Ciput!
So here’s the link to Taman Perindustrian OUG map in Wikimapia. [Note: You can’t come out from KESAS(Lebuhraya Shah Alam) to Jln Puchong [B11 & E5] on that junction next to Tmn Perindustrian OUG — it is a fly over, it’s not an entry-exit junction.

AVF is the distributor of Belkin products in Malaysia. Ask for Jack. Even he himself told me that Belkin’s toll-free line is useless. You want to claim warranty –> Jack; you want 1-to-1 exchange –> Jack; you want to RMA –> Jack; you want to check your device –> Jack. AVF is located in OUG Industrial Park, off Jalan Puchong. I’ll post a map later.
(The above info is correct at the time of print)

Stupid customer service of Belkin. Belkin’s customer service in Malaysia is non-existent. They only have a toll free line which will route (pronounced root, not ra-oot) your call to another continent (India? Philippines?). The CS representative will take down all sort of details about you and the product and confirm with you so many times that you begin to wonder if you just called a survey agency. It’s d*mn irritating. Then they will promise you that tech support will call you soon. How soon, only god knows. They were supposed to call me 3 weeks ago.

To Belkin…
If you can’t provide support here in Malaysia (I wonder why, since you do have an office across the bridge in Singapore), at least guide us to someone who can! List contact details of the official distributor of Malaysia (which is AVF). At least we know who to deal with when the Wireless G Router (pronounced rooter, not ra-ooter) goes bonkers. Your stupid CS rep don’t even know the distributor of Malaysia. Come on… don’t you train them properly? And your tech support still have not called me yet!
