The price of ego

Who is willing to admit their missed shine moment?  Most of the time we will somehow adjust our situation to face the fact.  Yes, that is an evil ego behavior dominating  our mind especially when we are in the weakest link.

Just watched the Miss Universe 2010 pageant, Venus Raj took  her turn at the question and  answer portion, and Miss Philippines 2010 answer was a shocker.  She was asked if there was anything she had ever done wrong in her life and if so, what had she done to fix it.  She replied that  in 22 years, she had never  done anything majorly wrong,  thank to the love of her family.  Well, in matter of fact there are some blur issues on her participating as she actually born in Doha, Qatar.   How could she represent Philippine simply because her mom is Philippine’s?  That’s call dis-honest.

In fact, many smart people can’t even gave an honest and straight answer when question asked.  It happened to Politician and news anchors most of the time where we witness and laugh about it.  Sometime we also react this way without realize.  Guess this is a challenge of ego and it will a price to pay.

Internet + Privacy = Choice

Everyone is well aware on the usage of an Internet.  It makes us easier in our daily live with just a click and we may find our answer without move an inch.  That’s smell conveniences.  There are many social networks in these days such as MySpace, Facebook, Twitter just to name a few.  The purpose of this is mainly for people to connect.  Guess what it could be your mom want to add you an a friend too whoops!

But again, it’s up to an individual choice to publish his/her info online such as blogging about her family and relation and etc.  As for me it just simply my reference.  That’s smell choice.   This apply to web album, cloud computing, twitted and its totally the owner choice whether to sync the private info online.    Of course, it come in both ways and will have consequences.

So, for those viewer that love to bitch around and I would like to remind you this ‘Privacy is dead on Internet’  So be it and move on after all an internet + privacy = choice.

Penang Delight – Char Koay Teow

Char Koay Teow is one of the signature food in Penang, Malaysia.  You can simply find it any food court or coffee shop in Malaysia especially Penang.  However, if you happen to travel to Penang Island and you got to try this.

It basically flat rice noodle, shrimp, squid, a few drop of secret soy sauce, ground chili, egg, garlic, Chinese sausage, bean sprouts and handful of chives.  Of course, it taste better it cook with lard.  Also, a small piece of bananas leaf on the bottom of plate for the aroma when the piping finish product hit the plate.  These ingredients looks easy to find but it require technique to make a plate of delicious ‘Char Koay Teow’.  Seriously, I like my extra chili and lot of it.

Unfortunately, it just hard to the yummy Char Koay Teow anywhere else but Penang.  Looking forward to taste the delightful Char Koay Teow when I pay the small visit to Penang next round.

Being stupid on the street

Most of the people being stupid without realize the consequences.  Such as driving while chatting on the cell, chatting in the middle of the crosswalk, switch lane without blinker, riding bicycle in the middle of the street for being cool and stupid and many more.  Well, with the un-consideration act and it might cause an innocent on street in trouble.

Understood, there is a law especially for pedestrian http://www.dmv.ca.gov/pubs/vctop/d11/vc21950.htm but how many of us will follow the rule!  In fact, we can witness anytime and anywhere when we are on the street of these bad people behavior.

Well, my advise is to use their humor.  If  he/she has the right doesn’t mean he/she need to behave stupidly on the street.

It won’t be the same without you ‘Mary Hart’ on ET

Oh my! It’s official that Mary Hart of Entertainment To Night is quitting.  Reported she took 50% of pay cut early this year and just released below statement through the ET website.

She says:

“I’ve had the privilege of spending 29 years doing something I love — how often does that happen? I’ve had the support of a stupendous group of people starting with Linda Bell Blue, John Nogawski and many others who are so talented on our staff at ET. I only meant to be at ET for three years, suddenly it’s almost 30! I’ve reached a point when I clearly realize it’s time for a change. There are many things I want to do in my life and I’d better get on with them.

It will certainly be with mixed sentiments that I say ‘goodbye’ at the end of the season, but it will definitely be with a sense of celebration … 30 years of Entertainment Tonight, are you kidding me? That’s an accomplishment and something I’m very proud of!”

All the best to you Mary and NO one can replace you!  Trust me ET will not be the same without you.  Even worst they keep hiring annoy and sassy ladies such as Samantha Harris and Lara Spencer uhg.  By the way, these ladies are good at yelling though.  Guess Lara Spencer will taking your position.

Hope ET management will need to step up to plate to realize that viewer doesn’t like their selection and it will cause the low rating.
