Here some bangas post from me.. Perasmian Rumah Terbuka Pesta Kaamatan 2008 which been held at Padang Bandaran, Kota Kinabalu on last 31st May 2008. Below are some shots I took for you guys..

The event started at around 7.00pm and the time is so quick as I mange to go home recharge + have some short rest just after atended the Unduk Ngadau Finals 2008 which finished around 5.30pm at KDCA, Penampang.

The Prime Minister of Malaysia is there too.. everyone knows him, so no need for me to introduce.

A speech by Y.A.B. Datuk Musa Haji Aman, Chief Minister of Sabah

Among VVIP that present are Datuk Seri Mohd. Shafie Apdal, Minister of National Unity, Culture, Arts and Heritage, Datuk Joseph Pairin Kitingan, Deputy Chief Minister of Sabah, Dato Masidi Manjun, Sabah Minister of Tourism, Culture and Environment, and Yang Dipertua Negeri, Tun Ahmadshah Abdullah.

The show begin with a symbolic meaning to the kaamatan itself where a giant ‘basung’ basket pouring a rice into one big basket.

Souvenirs presented by Datuk Seri Mohd. Shafie Apdal to the T.Y.T of Sabah

and not forgotten also presented to the Prime Minister.

The show started with a traditional dance.

and later came the one and only, Abu Bakar Elah a.k.a Si Ampal….

everyone loves him..

Most of the fresh Sabahan queens are there too that night, 3rd Runner-Up of Miss Sabah Malaysia World 2008, Ms. Rounnah Beb Robert Sylvester was there

and also the 1st Runner-Up of Miss Sabah Malaysia World 2008, Ms. Joanne Kimberly J Majalap, mann she’s preety!

and everyones favorite (including me).. Ms. Joana Henly Rampas. love this Joana workh!! korgh!! I mean this shot!!

The show continues with various types of Sabah traditional dance

Some candid shot of the dancers

Some of them are familiar faces

nearly most of the dancers I’ve seen on the last event, Sabah Fest 2008

including this one..

and this one too, just one particular female dancer I didn’t saw her show up that night which I knew this one particular blogger (everyones favorite) really love to see her in action..

The new Akademi Fantasia S6 Champion, Stacy also present that night.. Waah!! Talabih sudah!!

The fresh Unduk Ngadau 2008 Champion, Ms. Leonie Lawrence Gontuni was there too..

and an appearance of the local gambus queen from Bongawan, Sabah.. Fauziah Gambus

The 19 year old Fauziah Gambus or her full name is Fauziah Suhaili, had made an album call ‘Fauziah Gambus’ which are now available on every local music store in Kota Kinabalu (ceh! sempat promote bah!)

Linda Nanuwil the AF S2 1st runner-up winner is also present beside the famous singer from west malaysia, Syafinaz.

No wonder the crowd was so packed that night, everbody are rushing for their favorite artist, but some of them are not allowed to go inside.

The event finished at around 11pm.. actually after the VVIPs went back, there are more shows for the visitors performed by the local singer, Abu Bakar Elah and the rest of the singers, but I was already half death and decided to went back home recharge.. that’s all I can showcase here guys till next post.. panat suda sia bah!

Next : 23rd Sabah Dragon BoatRace 2008..

Last week’s dinner at Pizza Hut Lintas was total bullshit!!

I’ve ordered one set of meal for two and choosen the Peperoni Delight flavour for the pizza. Then, around 17 minutes later, the pizza arrived which is looks like this :

It seems the pizza is slightly burned, parched, Hangusss!!! Then I told the Pizza staff to check with their kitchen’s staff whether the pizza is actually burned. The she came back and told me “Oh! Ya sir, memang hangus, nanti dorang masakan yang baru”. So I waited for the new pizza to arrive la this kunun..

Then less than 10 minutes, new pizza arrived which is like this :

Don’t you guys think the pizza still look Hangussss!!!. Then the lady quickly walk away and move to another table. I’ve waited for almost 10 minutes to get one Pizza staff to find out what’s the problem until and one chubby guy came over..

Me : Excuse me Boss! sia mau tanya ni pizza yang first one tadi ka or yang baru punya??
RM : Errr.. not sure sir.
Me : Macamana ko tidak sure nih!! who’s incharge here??
RM : Err, me sir! I’m the Restaurant Manager.
Me : Macamana ko ni restaurant manager ndak tau apa-apa ka sia suda duduk almost half an hour ko bilang ndak sure. Ko tengok ni pizza hangus kan.. yang tadi punya ka this??
RM : It’s okay sir! I will give you new one shortly, and this one I give you for free. (while his hand holding the plate)
Me : NO! you give me new one, and this one you can eat yourself, or ko bagi ko punya kucing makan ka.
RM : Very well sir (while he quickly ran to the kitchen)

Not less than 10 minutes, new peperoni pizza arrive :

Now that’s much better pizza. I was lucky, Pizza Hut Lintas has an interior where front part of the kitchen is facing towards the visitors and that’s when I saw the Mr. Restaurant Manager took one pizza out from the oven which he bring straight to the table.

Now I realized the second pizza was the same pizza they gave me at the first time I ordered, why? here are the fact :

– 2nd pizza arrived less than 8 minutes (which fresh new pizza usually took about 17 minutes to serve)
– 2nd pizza look 100% totally the same (budak-budak pun ndak bulih tipu ba!!)
– 2nd pizza they give for free (ceehhhh!!)

After I finish my meal, I decided to gertak those guys a bit, so I took out one dslr camera which I brought and start zooming on every of the pizza staff around, I was looking for Mr. Restaurant Manager but it seems he already M.I.A, so I look for the 2nd girl who brought me the 2nd pizza.

Yaaa, this how she look.. I strongly believed she must be behind all the lies!! (Pok silap punya kes) I couldn’t manage to get her name since she knows she’s been targeted by the shark!!. Lucky the Mr. Restaurant Manager was already cabut awal, otherwise…. Smileeee!! you face on my side bar for one year free promo!!!

moral of the story :

Don’t mess with BLOGGERS!!! especially the one with camera…. jen! jen! jeng! jeng! jeeng!

The time you guys reading this post, I’m already was siok2 at Sepang for the Super GT Malaysian series .. All comments will be reply after I come back, to all my clients.. kasi chance sia three days cuti-cuti malaysia bah!

Super Babes here I come…

errr… I mean Super Cars here I come, jen! jen! jenggg!

New Petrol and Diesel pricing in Malaysia has been announce yesterday by the prime minister, Dato Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi to be effectively take action on 5th June 2008 which is today. Did your vehicles have full up of fuel before 11.59pm last night? or you got so much money until you don’t even bother about the new pricing?

RM2.70 per liter (RON97 Petrol) compare to RM1.92 per liter (old pricing)
RM2.62 per liter (RON92 Petrol) compare to RM1.88 per liter (old pricing)
RM2.58 per liter compare to RM1.58 per liter (old pricing)

… and that will cost me RM89.10 for full tank compare to RM62.70 last time

But not to worries as the goverment is preparing an additional subsidy of RM625 a year for vehicles owner with engine displacements of 2000cc and below, that includes most of the national manufactured cars which majority of the Malaysian are driving at the moment. While those Mat rempit also will get their subsidy of RM150 per year for Motorcycles under 250cc.. say hooray to mat rempit!! and all this subsidy are given for those road tax effective from the 1st of April 2008 until the 31st of March 2009.
