The other 8 finalists were call back to do catwalks on the stage on the finale night. So, all in we have 11 girls doing catwalks displaying a few local designer's label such as Carven Ong and shoes provided by Nose.

Cindy (1st Malaysian Dreamgirl)


Fiqa (very pretty in person)

Hanis (2nd Runner-up)

Elaine Daly was the MC for the night and she call upon her two fellow judges on stage to chat a bit while the girls are changing in the backstage.

The judges actually only responsible to pick the 12 finalist, after that it's all purely based on SMS votes from viewers.

After the prize giving session, all the finalists were mobbed by their fans to take pictures. Yours truly of course will not miss this opportunity. Even though the SD card is missing from my camera, I am able to ask bloggers around me to help take some picture to diversify the memory usage. I still didn't get photos from Nigel, so I'll so you what I got in my limited memory first.

Malaysian Dreamgirl Finale - Results

Just came back from Malaysian Dreamgirl Finale in 1 Utama. Thanks to Ringo, I am able to go in as an invited guest. Will blog about the whole event in a later post. Now let me tell you guys the hot results of who won the Malaysian Dreamgirl after two months of controversial competition shown online.

Alison won the Escada Moon Sparkling girl, which is voted by the contestant themselves.

And here's the result, ***drum roll***

2nd Runner-up went to


A lot of bloggers predicted Hanis will be crown the Malaysian Dreamgirl but when she was announced to be the 2nd Runner-up we're all so disappointed. Pinkpau even shouted out so loud that all of us laugh at her. Anyway, she's still get a modeling contract and some cool prizes. By the way, she got so many supporter there in the Oval, 1 Utama, shouting their support everytime she walked on the stage. They even have uniforms.

The 1st Runner-up goes to........


She can be said an underdog which did not so any potential from the first few episode. I think after she won the Escada TV commercial challenge, people started to notice her and vote for her. And here she is taking the 1st Runner-up.

Nuffsaid, now you all will know who won the Malaysian Dreamgirl title and take away the Nissan Latio. Yes, it might be due to her rich dad but still we have to accept that this is a popularity show. All the girls have given in their hard work the whole two months. The final 11 were there to do a series of catwalk before announcing the winners. Jean was the only one not there.

Let me present to you the first Malaysian Dreamgirl,


Well, after two months of MDG craze, and finally it's all over. Now every Thursday and Saturday there's nothing for me to look out for already. There's gonna be season 2 which will be bigger and better. A nation wide audition will be conducted I heard. Well, to all the 11 finalist that did the catwalk tonight, GREAT SHOW. Wish you all the best.

Categorizing My Posts

For my frequent readers, you'll notice that there's something new on the right frame. I've installed a widget that categorized and list my post by labels. Took me 2 hours to reorganize and simplified my labels. Currently there's 94 posts, so it still bearable to organize the labels. So from now on I'll label my post carefully. You guys can now browse through the categories and look for posts that interest you. Happy reading! :)

After the photo sessions in front GSC, Robb says he have to go to Pavillion. So the rest of us look around the Garden for a good place to have our lunch. I suggested to try out Cova as I've read some good review and I've tried here once before. Everyone agreed and here we are.

Cova @ the Gardens

They got lunch set at affordable price. Good.

Nice & quiet lunch environment

The set lunch includes two beverages that you can choose from.

Ice Lemon Tea

Lime Juice

Soup of the day is Cream Brocolli Soup

The Cream Brocolli Soup is not bad at all. Rich taste of brocolli and not very salty.

Rating: 3.5/5

Mr. Tang's Braised Beef Spaghetti with tomato coulis

Kenny's Duck Confit & mushroom vermicelli with garlic & asparagus

Mitchbaby and I ordered Seared Dory Fillet with garlic mash & butter reduction

The Dory Fillet is cooked to the right timing, making the texture smooth and fresh. The white sauce also goes well with it and the garlic mash is so fine. Eating both fillet and garlic mash together create a new kind of taste altogether.

Rating: 3.5/5

Joshua's Stuffed Chicken breast with wild mushroom & butter mash

The dessert of the day is Banana Chocolate cake

It's not as chocolaty as Secret Recipe's but still tasty on it's own accord.

MyReview: Forbidden Kingdom

Last Thursday, I was invited by Nuffnang once again for another movie press screening. This time it is Forbidden Kingdom.

As I have watched the trailer before, I know that this movie is going to be in English. Yes, Jackie Chan and Jet Li will be speaking in English most of the time. It all starts with Jason () a fans of Shaw Brothers' kungfu movies having found a golden staff in an antique store ran by an old Chinese man.

He was then teleported in to another world which look like China and sound like China but I don't think it's China. I think it is Jason's fantasy world of the Shaw Brothers' kungfu movies. At first everyone only speaks in Mandarin but after Lu Yan said to Jason "Because you're not listening hard enough", suddenly everyone knows how to speak in English. In this world, Jason found himself as the chosen one (sounds familiar) to return the golden staff to the Monkey King (Jet Li). As he travels, along the way he met Lu Yan (Jackie Chan) which is a master of Drunken Fist style of kungfu, Golden Sparrow (Liu Yi Fei), The Monk (Jet Li), and chased by villain like the Bride with White Hair (Li Bing Bing), and the Warlord (Collin Chou).

For those of you that is not familiar with Shaw Brothers' movie, Golden Sparrow is a character in of their movie Come Drink With Me (大醉俠) which is played by Cheng Pei-Pei who is famous for the role of Silver Fox she played in Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon.

Travelling through the dessert like Journey to the West

Interesting thing to note is that some of the character from like the immortals are from the story Journey to the West, the first time we see Monkey King God and The Heavenly King speaks in English. Shaw Brothers also made a few movies on the story Journey to the West. Also the villain Bride with White Hair is another character from another movie that is based on a martial arts novel written by Leung Yu-Sang.

The Bride with White Hair (Li Bing Bing)

This is why I say this is a fantasy world of the kungfu movies cramped into one. One have to really watch this movie with open mind to appreciate this movie. Two of my friends watched and they told me it is not too bad at all. Not many films you'll get to see Jackie Chan fighting Jet Li.

Dueling it out between Lu Yan & The Monk

Fighting over a stick? Both got your own, right?

Jokes aside, one of my favourite fight scene is Jackie Chan fighting the soldiers with his 8 Immortal Drunken Fist style kungfu. I like his movie back in the late 70s which is comical kungfu fighting.

Lu Yan teaching Jason the way to do a good fart

Golden Sparrow (Liu Yi Fei)

The Warlord (Collin Chao)

Overall, it's quite an entertaining flick if you watch it with an open mind and accepting that Jackie Chan and Jet Li speaks in English. It's more for the American market, it's opening week is top in the Box Office in US. You must first empty your cup to fill in more tea.
