Hit the Gym, yo!

Shabery Cheeks has been busy visiting gyms lately. Not a day passes by without the sight of a suited-up (track suited up, that is) Cheeks grinning idiotically while observing big ass dudes pump iron all day long.

As if that was not embarrassing enough, Cheeks felt that he should not be missing out on all the meathead fun and volunteered to do some chest presses, just to show that he is suitably fit for the title of Sports & Youth Minister bestowed upon him.

Well, that's fine except for the fact that Cheeks obviously has been skipping his weekly gym sessions and was struggling gravely to lift that damn bar. And I swear I saw some saliva trickling down the sides of his mouth. It was THAT heavy.

No, really. It was.


Earth Day

Earth Day (22 April) passed without a whiff of notice. There was virtually no publicity whatsoever to promote whis event, save for the one-page special in the NST. This is in stark contrast to the hype given to the absurdly self indulgent "save the environment" affair that is Earth Hour.

Where was the WWF on 22 April? Did they even organise a "Save Mother Nature" program, or at the very least, a gathering to commemorate Earth Day?

Where was 8TV? Did they show any public service ads? Where were the 2-minute long clips with our nation's hippest and most environmental concious-est celebs?

Were the hell was the dreadlocked hippie Reshmonu? Or 8TV CEO Ahmad Izham Omar?

Where the fuck was Reshmonu?

RESHMONU!!! Where are you?

This blatant display of hypocrisy just proves that our so-called "socially responsible" is nothing but a fraud. They'll exploit anything that would generate exposure to themselves and will conveniently drop their commitment when it no longer suits them. And that's why I have a cynical view of anything coming from 8TV, Air Asia and all the other bullshit companies pretending to be oh-so-angelic because I know that they're only doing it because they can make money out of it.

Now, where the hell is Reshmonu?


Champions League, First Leg

Liverpool's swashbuckling performances (plus the last minute winner at Fulham) of late was exactly the kind of run that warrants a home stuffing by Chelsea. I'm not being pessismistic but I think that's just about right. We'll be brought back down to Earth in frustrating fashion.

And I am proven right. At 4.38 AM on a Thursday. Early goal. Two headers conceded. Non-existant second half. Baik aku buat kuiz kat Facebook.

Even the 7-million pound goal scoring machine that is Andrea Dossena can't save this.


Malaysian GP 2009

The highlight of last weekend's GP for me was the sight of an all dried up Kimi Raikkonen having an ice cream while his rivals sat patiently in the rain, waiting for the stewards to decide whether the race should be continued.

I love his "not giving a fuck" attitude. Why bother getting yourself soaked if the best you could achieve was to finish 14th? 

I wonder what ice cream Kimi had? 
It looked like a Magnum, which by the way costs a whopping RM 3.80 nowadays.
I know because I just bought one.
