Tiger Woods is damn cool!

This is a recent hooha about Tigerwoods PGA Tour "Jesus Shot" in youtube...

Youtube user "Levinator 25" found a glitch in last year's edition of the Xbox game "Tiger Woods PGA Tour 08" where the digital Tiger Woods stood on the water for his next shot with the ball staying afloat on the water. This was what he posted in Youtube:



Later on, EA Sports responded to Levinator 25 with an ad for EA Sports 09 edition and proved to him, with the real Tiger Woods on the same stunt, that the "glitch" he thought he found in the game was not a glitch at all:



Glitch or not a glitch afterall? For you to judge and I would say EA is damn humourous!

Another really cool ad by EA sports for Tiger Woods:



Cannot solve rubik's cube? Make use of it then! Cool or what! Freaking amazing!

5 DON"T when you are sleeping

UPDATED: Hey folks, I need to clarify something.. I seriously dunno how true the following are (received via email) but I know for sure the bra one is true... regarding watch and phone, I guess it does affect a little if you do it long term.. the makeup one I seriously dun understand and cannot imagine there are actually people doing that.. I cant even sleep without bathing and washing my hair! The last one dun have to say lar.. confirm TRUE! hehe..


I guess it's always better to be safe than sorry huh...


1. DON'T SLEEP WITH WATCH
Watches can emit a certain level of radioactivity. Though small, but if you wear your watch to bed for a long time, it might have adverse effects on your health.

2. DON'T SLEEP WITH BRA
Scientists in America have discovered those that wear bras for more than 12 hours have a higher risk of getting breast cancer. So go to bed without it.

3. DON'T SLEEP WITH PHONE
Putting the phone beside your bed or anywhere near you is not encouraged. Though some of us will use phones as alarm clocks, but please put the phone as far as possible. Scientists have proved that electrical items including mobile phone and television sets emit magnetic waves when used. These waves can cause disruptions to our nervous system. Therefore if you need to put your mobile phone near you, switch it off first.

4. DON'T SLEEP WITH MAKE UP
People who sleep with make up might have skin problems in the long run. Sleeping with make up will cause the skin to have difficulty in breathing and problem in perspiring. You will also need a much longer time to go into deep sleep.

Lastly.....

5. DON'T SLEEP WITH OTHERS' WIFE / HUSBAND
You may never wake up again.

Ladyboys

Just finished reading the book "Ladyboys". A cool book to read if you would like to understand and know more about the lives of ladyboys or transsexuals - known as "Kathoeys" in Thai.



It's a collection of real life stories of Thailand's 3rd gender, interviews with transsexuals like Go-Go Girl, Columnist, Carbaret Girl, Prostitute, Street Walker, Entrepreneur, Air Stewardess, Boxer & Dancer. In this book, they revealed their innermost thoughts and feelings, how they struggled with their identities, their longing for real love, acceptance and support from people around them. These ladyboys were really humorous when they talked about their lives but at the same time, I can feel the amount of pain they went thru not just physically due to excruciating genital operations some of them went thru, but emotionally and mentally as well.

Many of them really came from very poor background and they suffered a lot before they become who they are or stay where they are.

The boxer's story left the deepest impression in me. "She" joined Muay Thai boxing jus so "she" could save enough money to go for sex change and become a woman. "She" even fought with makeup! "Her" irony situation intrigued me to want to know more about her. "Her" story was later made into a movie called "Beautiful Boxer", which was released in 2003.


I personally think she's quite sweet

After reading this book, my perception of ladyboys has completely changed. I truly empathize with them, even admire them for their courage to fight for what they want. Sometimes in life, it's not about right or wrong, it's about who you think you are, what you really want and how you wanna live for the rest of your life. It's a CHOICE.

Since I'm at this topic, I searched online for some kathoeys aka ladyboys' pictures:

HE became SHE











Sources: thaimiss.com/thailandpageant.com/miriamofficial.com/missladyboys.com etc


Gosh! They are more beautiful than some real women! I'm totally jealous!

You will never think they were once "HE" if I never mention huh...

Btw it's so difficult to find all these pictures hockay coz when I google ladyboys or kathoey, it leads me to all the porn sites! WTF!

Bakerzin

This weekend was kinda sucky for me coz I was sick on Friday and totally no mood to plan my weekend, dun even have mood for movies! Except for dinner at Bakerzin on Sat evening, I just lazed at home this whole weekend, resting and blogging.

I was kinda forced to go out yesterday coz I need to get a gift on behalf of my team for my colleague, who had just given birth to a baby girl on 20 Aug 08 (2008 2008).. cool date huh! So Baby and I went to Marina Square to get the stuff. After that we wanted to try Fin Seafood Cafe's fish and chips and when we were there, we were told waiting time was an hour! That was crazy so we decided to cancel our order. We decided to leave Marina Square and headed to Millenia for Bakerzin.

Their menu is getting more and more "Asianised". Anyway we did not go for the Asian food but their set meal:


I dun like the tomato soup coz it was sourish.. Yeah I know tomato soup supposed to be sourish but it's just not my cup of tea lar.. therefore Baby walloped both bowls.


Baby had this Meatball Spaghetti. Ordinary according to him.


I had the Ham & Bacon Aglio Olio. Very garlicky which was perfect coz I love garlics!


I had the profiteroles which was not part of the set menu. Baby had waffles with ice-cream and I did not managed to take picture of that. I still prefer "The French Stall" profiteroles coz the pastry, which is the most important role in this dessert, is nicer.

Bakerzin's set menu cost S$13.80++ which consists of free flow of homemade bread, soup of the day, choice of main course and soft drinks/Italian soda.

We were walking thru Marina Square heading to the bus stop infront of Esplanade and the chaos outside Marina Square surprised us. There were alot, and I really mean alot, of people. The floor was so wet after the rain and everyone just placed their ass down on the staircase. We were kinda curious what was happening coz there were even traffic police controlling traffic on the road. Baby speculated there might be fireworks and true enough after we reached home, we heard the fireworks.

I really have to salute the Singaporean's spirit sometimes... Freaking floor so wet, weather sucked yet none of their spirits were dampened. Hmmmm.. it's just fireworks lor......

Knut the Polar Bear

Knut, born on 5 Dec 06, is a polar bear who was born in captivity at the Berlin Zoo. Rejected by his mother at birth, he was subsequently raised by zookeepers. He was the first polar bear cub to survive past infancy at the Berlin Zoo in more than 30 years.

Knut was born to 20-year-old Tosca, a former circus performer from East Germany who was born in Canada, and her 13-year-old mate Lars, who was originally from the Tierpark Hellabrunn in Munich. After an unproblematic gestation time, Knut and his unnamed brother were born on 5 Dec 06. Tosca rejected her cubs for unknown reasons, abandoning them on a rock in the polar bear enclosure. Zoo keepers rescued the cubs by scooping them out of the enclosure with an extended fishing net, but Knut's brother died of an infection four days later. Knut was the first polar bear to have been born and survived in the Berlin Zoo in over thirty years. Only the size of a guinea pig, he spent the first 44 days of his life in an incubator before zoo keeper Thomas Dörflein began raising the cub.

On 23 March 2007, Knut was presented to the public for the first time. Around 400 journalists visited the Berlin Zoo on what was dubbed "Knut Day" to report on the cub's first public appearance to a worldwide audience.

See the moments of Knut with the public and his zoo keeper, Thomas Dörflein.








































































Video of his younger days. Very cute!


In November 2007 and weighing over 90 kg (200 lb), Knut was deemed too dangerous for close handling and his interaction with human handlers was further diminished. He now weigh more than 130 kg (300 lb) and a plate of six-inch glass, strong enough to resist a mortar blast, stands between him and zoo visitors.

On 31 Dec 07, the zoo's director confimed the zoo had received a proposal for a film deal from Hollywood film producer Ash R. Shah, to make an animated film about the bear's life. Shah reportedly approached the Berlin Zoo with a purported €3.5 million film deal. Knut made his big screen debut in the German film Knut und Seine Freunde (Knut and Friends), which premiered in Berlin on 2 Mar 08. Directed by Michael Johnson, the film depicts how Knut was rescued after his mother abandoned him and also features a polar bear family from the Arctic and two brown bear cubs from Belarus.

Watch the trailer on the film's website, Knut was damn cute.. But the film did not come to Singapore.. hmmm..
