Updating Facebook Status Through SMS by XPAX

I don't have a smart phone so when I have something that I want to say in my Facebook status, I'll have to look for a PC to go online to update it. I used to be able to update on my status through SMS using PacMee service which is now defunct. I think Twitter killed it :p

Just so recently that I found out that Xpax is offering a service where you can update your Facebook status and a few other function like wall post and poke in Facebook just by using the good old SMS service. If you're already an Xpax user, all you have to do is:

It's quite easy isn't it? It only cost RM 1 for a week of unlimited access to this service and it's the first Facebook SMS Service in Malaysia. So be the first to one to own this service ;). Xpax always ditches out great new services at affordable price. I think it's time for me to change one of my prepaid mobile service to Xpax. For more information click here. What are you waiting for? Spend thousands on smart phone? :P

I'm Back From Nuffnang Blog Awards, Singapore

Hello! Hello! Hello!

It's been 3 days that this blog is not updated. Not too long nor too short lol. Nuffnang Asia Pacific Blog Awards ended successfully without much hiccups. It's is quite a grand gala dinner. Red carpet for the bloggers to walk on. Also a star studded event. It felt like a Oscar for blog event lol.

First of all, thank you Nuffnang for the invite and the hard work the Nuffies put in to make sure everything is running smoothly like the transportation, accommodation, seating, and tour. Although there's a minor hiccup in the accommodation part, which is due to the lack of experience from the hotel side in handling such a large crowd like us. Rough estimation of 120 people checking in at one go. And of course there's the mis-communication issue that was brought to light after so many hinting in twitter and what not.

Second is to thank all of you again that voted for me on the Slurpeelicious contest. Really appreciate it.

Most of you would have known by now that Xia Xue swept 3 awards, which is Most Influential, Best Blog Design and Region Best Blog (garnered from overall most votes).

While Malaysia very own Kenny Sia only manage to win the Best Entertainment Blog award. It's funny when Xia Xue was preparing to give her speech on her 3rd award of the night, Kenny went up the stage and did a Kanye West move on her. LOL.

A bit sad though that my taukehsoh didn't win the Best Travel Blog award. Ah, but getting nominated, already means her blog is one of the best in the category.

The Best Celebrity Blog went to Joanne Peh of Little Nyoya fame. No doubt about it, the other nominees are not as well known as her. The people there that night was like queuing up to take picture with her when she's on in the Nuffnang Award background area having her picture taken by the media. Talk about star attraction.

I voted for Hanis in the Best Celebrity Blog award though lol. I think Hanis accepted the result with an open heart.

I am so happy that YC won the Best Hidden Gem award. I diligently voted for her the past few weeks. Her doodling is very funny.

Well, whether the results is what you expected or not, everyone's a winner that night. Okay, so long for now. More on the Nuffnang AP Blog Awards trip in later post. I'll leave you guys with this scandalous picture of me trying to kiss Casey as ordered by my taukehsoh.

Who is BeutifulNara?

To be honest. I only got to know about BeautifulNara when I see the announcement of Project Alpha. From the name, one would have thought that the blogger behind it will be a female. Wrong! It's actually blog by a very down to earth guy that is working as an accountant. He's name is Nazuwan.

Find out from Episode 1, why the name BeautifulNara. I'm not going to tell you here.

How the hell did I know whether he's a down to earth and work as an accountant? Even before I watch the episodes in Project Alpha and I don't read the blog, I already know. That is because I met the man himself. Yupe. Nazuwan my man. I was at the XBerry Party and I saw Nicole and Casey in Italiannies, then I went to say hello to them. Nazuwan was there to with them. Nicole and Casey were so nice to treat us some pepperoni pizza. Yummy.

At first I don't know who he was because he didn't introduce himself as "Hi, I'm Beautiful Nara wtf." He look kinda familiar, so then I asked him, "You're BeautifulNara right?" He said,"Yes." After the meal, I bumped into Nazuwan and his best friend Hilmi.

Want to see how Hilmi looks like? See it for yourself in Episode 5 of Project Sad to say, I didn't manage to take picture with Hilmi.

Why I say Nazuwan is a very down to earth guy? Well, he's very friendly and a bit shy in this kind of event. He saw some celebrity like Joe Flizzow, and wanted to take picture with him but do not dare. So, I, whom is a seasoned event camwhorer helped him to ask for a picture with Fizzoe and Rudy. LOL. Actually, Rudy knows me, so it's kind of easy. The next celebrity is Yasmin. I also helped to have our picture taken with her. Thanks Hilmi for being behind the camera. Oh, by the way, where's the pictures, tag me lah in FB? :p

The man from

David from Nuffnang then invited him to an after party in MOS and Nazuwan was so kind to ask me to tag along. So, the three of us went to party! Oh, he may be a bit shy with celebrity but he blogs a lot about celebrity gossip kekeke. He also has a very pretty girl friend. I heard from Hilmi that they are going to engaged soon. Congrats bro.

Episode 6 will be Jojo chatting with his girl friend. It's not uploaded yet at the current time. Please check out Project Alpha for the latest episode.

Taken in MOS with Audrey. She's the first to appear in Project Alpha.

Catch the very 1st Episode of Project Alpha, featuring

Oh, by the way. Project Alpha is sponsored by Adidas New Action 3. Of which, I am a big fan of the product. I've been liking Adidas deodorant ever since my cousin Elaine gave one to me when I visited Hong Kong 3 years ago. At that time, it's hard to find Adidas deodorant in Malaysia. Only about a year ago, it's available and I quickly bought myself two Adidas Action 3 Sensitive.

It can last very long because I work 12 hours per day and I still smell good, won't stain my shirt and best of all, my sensitive armpit won't be itchy like I had when I use other brand of deodorant. Since my old Adidas Action 3 left only half the amount, I went and bought myself the New Adidas Action 3 Sensitive. The new one, you don't have to take off any cover, just press and spray lol.

Guess which one is the New Adidas Action 3? ;)

Er...No prize for guessing the right one though :p

Of Miss World Malaysia & Pasta de Gohan, Sunway Pyramid

Simon Says: Help vote for me on the Slurpeelicious contest. Click here then look for my picture and click vote! Oh, after you voted, check your e-mail because you'll be asked to verify your vote by clicking a auto generated link. Thanks.

Early this month, I went to Sunway Pyramid to support Bangsar Babe in the final of Miss World Malaysia 2009, she's one of the finalist. I reached there about 7 p.m. but the final only starts at 8 p.m. Since there's still time and my stomach is growling, so I went to Pasta de Gohan for dinner. (For guy that is not interested about food can scroll down for picture of the Miss World Malaysia 2009 :p)

I've been wanted to try Pasta de Gohan for a long time but alas, Sunway Pyramid is a place that I rarely step foot in unless there's any event there. This month and last month, I already went there 4 times for events like I.M. Magazine Launch, Miss World Malaysia 2009 Grand Finale, Digi D'Ultimate Birthday Bash and the most recent XPAX XBerry Party. Since, I am already here and there's enough cash in the wallet, so I won't miss this chance to try Pasta de Gohan, if not I won't know when I'll be coming to Sunway Pyramid again.

True to the name, they serve a lot of different style of pasta here. I am here to try their 和風
(wafu (Japanese)) style pasta. Started off with a Japanese clam chowder soup. One word can decribe this soup. SALTY! Even Campbell Soup will taste better than this. FAIL!

Rating: 1/5

For the pasta, I ordered 海胆 (uni) Sea Urchin Spaghetti in wafu sauce. I have to give credit that the pasta is cooked al dente, not to soggy and not to hard, just the right texture and springiness. I think a specially mixed soya sauce was used as the pasta sauce. Too bad the amount of sea urchin that was given is too little to mention here, well sea urchin is quite expensive stuff. They are only charging RM 30 plus (sorry I forgot the exact amount), so you can't expect a lot of sea urchin. This pasta is good for those that like sea urchin but for those that can't stand the special taste of sea urchin won't like it at all. I found that using sea urchin in a pasta is not a good idea at all. I still prefer to eat it in the form of sushi, sashimi or even uni tofu.

Rating: 3/5

Ah, this is quite a disappointment for my first time in Pasta de Gohan. It makes me wonder to come back again or not. Even though there are still a lot of different pasta that I haven't try yet, there's still the alternative Pasta Zanmai that got my thumbs up. Talking about that, it may be a time for me to revisit Pasta Zanmai, anyone want to join me? :p

Okay, after filling up my stomach it's time for the show. It says to start at 8pm but the real time it starts is 9pm -_-

The invited guest will be serve with food from Sakae Sushi.

Asha Gill is one of the co-host that night for the finale.

The show opens with Soo Wincci doing a song from her debut EP. For those of you that don't read The Star, she's the winner of Miss World Malaysia 2008. While she's singing, a batch of finalists already getting ready near the stairs to the stage with their sports wear by Schwarzenbach.

The finalist getting ready to start. Sports wear is the first item.

And very quickly they changed into swimsuit. They were like running back to the backstage to change after the sports wear, that is what I meant very quickly.

Next up, is a more traditional taste. Baju Kebaya. 1Malaysia mah. I starting to think that this theme maybe a bit overuse as in what Jeff Ooi has written in this post, this post, and this post.

Bangsar Babe looking stunningly in her Baju Kebaya.

Her fellow contestant-mate.

Some touching up before going back on stage again.

They did a bit of catwalk with oil umbrella and Peranakan stlyed basket while wearing Baju Kebaya.

After that, the girls get to get some rest because it is time for the performance by the children of some orphanage and their instructors. They did a few nice songs, I only able to recognize You Raise Me Up.

Oh, the very confidence girl that was shown in the audition were invited to sing a Celine Dion's My Heart Will Goes On that she sang during the audition.

This is her cut of the auditioning:

Well, even if you don't make into the finals of Miss World Malaysia 2009, you are very suitable in the showbiz, because you sure got guts singing in front of so many people. I would have pee in my pants to be on stage. Salute.

It's time for the final dress, evening gown.

Bangsar Babe in her evening gown.

This also means it's time to announce the winner of the sub-category titles and the top 10 finalists that can go the Q&A round.

Hey, I see Miss Popular there.

As all of us expected, Bangsar Babe won the Miss Popular title. As expected of a blogger. She also made it to the top 10 finalists.

Sue Lynn walking down after doing her Q&A session.

I saw Soo Wincci wearing her crown and getting ready for her last performance that night.

The crowd outside started to noticed her and ask for picture with her. I joined in the fun as well lol.

While waiting for the result to be calculated. Asha Gill and her co-host went around to interview the family member of the top 10 finalists.

The youngest audience and supporter of that night.

I later went up to first floor to join the colleagues and friends of Sue Lynn.

Soo Wincci singing, while the finalists waiting nervously for the results to be calculated.

The results: *drum roll*

Second Runner-up goes to Christy Yeoh

Stefanie Chua got first runner-up and Thanuja was crown Miss World Malaysia 2009.

Later the organizer called Sue Lynn and told her that she's the 3rd Runner-up wtf. Well, it's a very good experience.

Me and Miss Popular.

Oh! Sushi, Mid Valley Megamall

Before I went to the screening of BARD (Beyond A Reasonable Doubt lol) last month, I went to Oh! Sushi for dinner with Sheila that I invited to join me for the movie screening. At first I want to go to the Japanese Izakaya next to Oh! Sushi to eat Japanese curry pork cutlet rice but Sheila don't like to eat rice, so we embarked to Oh! Sushi for their ramen instead.

For appetizer, I ordered the salmon sashimi set that comes with raw salmon, raw salmon belly and salmon roe (ikura). I just can't stand to not order ikura if I happen to see it in the menu, just like uni (sea urchin) and foei gras.

The salmon sashimi and belly is quite fresh and the salmon roe is quite popping too.

Rating: 3.5/5

Sheila ordered a Chicken Mayonnaise ramen, this is the first time I see mayonnaise used in ramen. I tasted a bit of the soup. The taste is just ok only, and a bit too salty.

Rating: 2.5/5

As for me, of course I order something with pork. Mine is Kushu Ramen, the soup is cook using pork bone and there's chashu. Even, Sheila like the soup, which has a natural sweetness of the pork bone. I upgrade the ramen to use a special kind of ramen, which I forgot the name. It tasted just like the normal ramen, so don't bother to do the upgrade when you're there. Nevertheless, it's a nice delicous ramen.

Rating: 3.5/5
