Newspaper appearing act`

Ah benben appeared in the newspaper I think about one week ago. Since I don't subscribe to English paper, I didn't know there was an article until my friends came to me and say "You're on the papers!"



first up eastern times.. *flip flip*



tadah~ *look to next page`*



WOAH! It's the first time that my full-body-length picture got into the papers` So flattered.



A week later post mag wrote about the review~ The reporter, Margaret Apau, spelt Flautist correctly~! :D most of the people call flute players flutist.. I don't dare to say it's wrong but I would think that flautist is a more appropriate term for flute players`



black and white sleepy look`

It feels kinda funny to be in a newspaper clipping.. because I know that my performance was not up to par, those of you who watched the video should know. But frankly speaking?... It's quite fun to appear in newspaper once in a while~ hahahahah :P

p.s: I am so sorry about the tag debts.. I really got confused already about who tagged me.. lost count! pisang, may, rinnah, leonard, anna?, drunkfish... who else??? I am a bad tagger`

p.p.s: Ah ben is planning to get his own domain name` www.benmoh.com? or www.iokachng.com? lols~! just a thought :)

BAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!!!



Today ah Benben seven early eight early drove to the Pending post office to collect my precioussssss~



Tadah~! BAHAHAHAHAHHAH! my Advertlets cheque is here dy~ Woahhh~ my belated bday gift?? :P you see, really can make money through blogs! (I am one step closer to my PSP~) wahahahahhaha

this time they gave us 7 stickers and 2 badges~ I like the two badges~! very very adorable~



musician-friendly-badges~ See, I pinned them on my flute bag` Canggih or not? quite nice kan?? Still can pin at violin case too~

*reads reads letter* take picture... with badge.. post... EARN MONEY!!! *eyes shimmering with moolah sign~*

Leng luis and lengzais, Ah benben is gonna have his debut camwhoring session in his blog` As you all know, ah benben only post pictures of food most of the time, where got post own face one??? So this time, I am gonna sekaligus post a few camwhore picture just for Advertlets~ get ready your pails and plastic bag just in case you throw out` :X

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Once upon a time, there was an angel with a white advertlets badge living in advertsland`



oh yeah.. we need a name for the cast.. Let's call him Angel B` So this angel was supposed to look after the advertlets cheques~ It was all peaceful in advertland until..



evil T with the black advertlets badge showed up~ evil t began to steal the cheques given out by the Mayor of Advertland. Everyone was dejected because they could not buy their favourite plate of FKT, even the commitees at advertland could not do anything because evil T kept them in hallucination~

Angel B knew it was time he took some action so he went up to evil T and gave him a can of



Angel B: wah evil T very hot hor, see you so busy snatching people's cheque, the background always got the fire effect, you must be hot till wanna faint. here, drink up first~
Evil T: *teary eyes* Angel B, you are so nice to me~ aiyo, you don't know only, this background is burning my Ka chng till I have to apply aloe vera every night! *slurp drink*

Little did evil T knows, the drink has been spiked! Angel B had added his potion, Lao sai selama-lamanya (diarrhea forever and ever) potion into the drink` So, Evil T spent the rest of his life in his toilet. Once again, the day cheques are saved` thanks to..



Angel B`!

o m g` so much camwhoring can seriously kill!!! I wonder how could they stand it???? *acts angelic`*



If only I was as cute as boing boing and toing toing` ahahaha

Hope you enjoyed the "show"` and remember to sign up for advertlets to start earning your moolah~ :)

20-07-2007

lols~ another one of those "special dates"` die die also must blog something :P

btw, my Advertlets cheque has finally arrived!!!!!



well.. arrived but ah BenbEn was not home to collect it! So tomorrow I have to drive to super far to Pending's post office to collect the cheque` aiyoksss

But I am glad that the cheque arrived at this time because it can be added into my Laptop fund~!

If not my laptop fund, then it would be...



for my PSP fund~ wahahahha! lately ah benben ka chng cio (buttock itchy) and is very tempted to buy a psp~

reasons:
1) i wanted to buy the Sony Digital Mp3 walkman but since PSP can listen to songs too, why not just get a PSP? then I can play game marh kan? :D

2) Can view the pictures taken with my digicam cos both of them using the same type of memory stick~

3) Can play game in the toilet`

4) to ease the itchiness in the ka chng

5) It's a Sony so it must be good~

So you see, with all those excellent reasons above, I think it's good enough for me to get myself a PSP~ But hold up!



NEW PSP~ looks the same kan? but it is said to be lighter, brighter screen and the battery has longer life span. It's selling for the same price in the states but I think when it reach Kuching, the price is definitely gonna be more expansive than the old PSP` then again.. since both of it looked so much alike, I must just get myself the old one because when the new one comes out.. the price of the older version is gonna drop straight down into the longkao wahahahahahhaha! :x

*saving up money saving up money~*



side note, There's gonna be an unofficial bloggers hang out tomorrow at bestberry cafe` If you guys/girls wanna tag along you're welcomed to do so` Don't have to register yourself or anything` :)

side note 2, since the pinch ka chng fever is always on the loose. I shall now teach you all a new hokkien word. ready? make sure you are all dressed up like our Modal student ehehehe

the word for today is "Nyam" which means pinch~ so now, you dun have to say pinch ka chng, you say "nyam ka chng"~ tadah!! so simple kan? Class dismissed!

oh, before i forget. The Emperor is gonna meet up with the imperial loktor` So who's gonna nyam whose ka ch'ng? we shall wait patiently for their posts~

Potter Boing



Ah Benben went to watch harry potter earlier on. I gave it an 8 out of 10. I thought the show was not bad as I haven't read the book (the book's still in the shelf) so I don't know what details did the missed. The name of the spells are very interesting` :D The casts were more matured in this show but I thought harry potter was getting old, literally. Well, he looked older compared to the previous show.

I wanna put spoiler can ah? I minus 2 marks off the total due to the kissing scene` Don't why I feel gelik after watching that part, I mean harry potter is suppose to be mixing potions, zapping momoks, and fiddling with his wand.. so I personally thought that scene was a bit.. er. yeap, a bit ER.. :X

As usual, the music for harry potter show is excellent. The main theme always catches my attention, very cleverly written indeed. The effects created by the orchestra was great too. That's why I say "sometimes you really have to salute these ang mohs"`

If you haven't watch the show, you can go and watch it. But ah benben suggests that you go on movies day (if there's such thing in your place) when the tickets are cheaper cause hardcore potter fans might find it to be not so worth it if they had to pay the original ticket price. :)

Starbux has landed~

Literally landed at Kuching International Airport... of all the places` So Ah Benben decided to go for a visit~



sorry the starbux lady looks a bit like Michael Jackson :x`



Emptiness. It was raining earlier in the evening so the air in the airport was freezing cold! my goodness.



Follow the sign~



AND I FOUND IT~! Starbucks Coffe(e)

The place was not as packed as Secret Recipe when it just opened in Kuching. Maybe because it's at the airport so people don't really bother to go so far just for a sip of very expensive coffee. Well, maybe they just haven't heard about the place cause it's still new? :x



My glass of hazelnut-sweet-till-die-hot-chocolate`~ Yes, Ah BenBen doesn't drink coffee if you haven't noticed.



Noisy guy is back in kuching! no wonder no peace in kuching these few days, feel as though the air is polluted with noises` :x



david who thought that there weren't cream in his green tea ice blended`



With sam poh. MY EYE BAGS!! So horrible you can fit two large LV bags inside` T.T



group pic snatched from sam's site` The other David on the far left and clarence on the far right`

Nothing to hoo-haa about starbucks cause it's like quite common in KL?? But since it's the first shop in Kuching, so I think Kch ppl should give this High class kopitiam a visit :)

Concert Etiquettes~

I just attended a violin recital by Yap Ling and my flute examiner, Geoffrey Pratley just now. It was really a rare event as we seldom get concerts in Kuching, which was quite sad. KL have mpo, nso, Aiyer` how I wish I could watch their concert every week. ahah, okay.. don't side track..



The show started a bit late` They played quite a number of pieces, ranging from Bach to Saint saens. Mr Pratley played Schubert's Impromptu. VERY WELL PLAYED!! the top melodic line was crystal clear~! such great control` *droools*



Yap Ling who played well~!



mr Pratley accompanied and played well too~!

Now, to the main concern of this post`! Concert Etiquettes` Some people just cannot sit still~! Babi them, so noisy` Oh, and people already reminded them to switch off the handphones or put it to silent mode, and then hand phones still ring! So embarassing! imagine Mr. Pratley who played for BBC and is having all these. Oh my goodness!! *hides like ostrich*

Then got this stupid kid, who walked so near to the stage thinking he's the star. This one must ask nyonya to piak his butt using rotan! YERRR!! Then those kids, the song haven't finish, clap for what?!?!? Even in between sonata movements you're not suppose to clap also!!!



*Unleash evil toing!* Feel like giving them one kick in the butt and let them stuck in the wall`!

But then again, I am so sweet and lovable *ahems loud loud~!* I must educate people properly kan??? *kicks evil toing into the drain*



Angelic voice:" Remember, if go to concert, must make sure you sit quietly. If you bring your children, bring super glue to glue their butt onto the chair and lastly, Don't clap in between movements or before the song ends!"

this is a community education message brought to you by angelic boing~*harp music in the background~*
