On a rainy day like this...

I dream of the sun...

"Sweet as, bro" taken to a new level

Last week, I got a link with a message that said, "You HAVE to watch this video..." and it was a video of Dane Moeke, a contestant on New Zealand's popular karaoke competition, Homai Te Pakipaki (loosely translated as clap your hands/put your hands together/applause)

After watching the video, the thing that amazed me the most was not only his singing skills but the mere sight of his outfit on NZ national TV! A plain white tee, a hoodie and a pair of white jandals (aka Japanese slippers, flip flops, sandals, etc)!

Maori Television doesn't allow embedding of the video due to copyright, click on the link to watch the video and be amazed of the laid back-ness of his overall look (albeit Dane needs some training but I do think he can sing):

I guess the beauty (and amazement?) of it all is that this is yet another demonstration of the Kiwis being super laid back ala their country motto, "sweet as, bro" where anything and everything goes (also read my previous blog on the NZ PM). He really looks like he just had dinner with his family at the takeaway shop and went straight for the show! 

As the saying goes, "There's no place like New Zealand" - literally, I don't think there is any other country/TV show that would allow jandals on the set!

Don't get me wrong, I have absolutely nothing against jandals. I think I have 5 pairs? (hey, I'm a tropical girl!) I guess there's a time and place for every pair of shoes, you know? My favourite and most trusty pair of jandals has been with me for the past 3 years....they last a long time :)

Well, I hope Dane Moeke wins the competition 'cos this is his 3rd time trying and he looks like a sweetie pie. My vote goes to him! Hopefully, with that cash prize he can go buy a pair of shoes.

Even the PM of New Zealand offers to pick me up from the Auckland airport...

When the boyf asks me to take the shuttle into the city!

This video is a great representation of the Kiwis' sense of humour (being able to laugh at themselves) and their "sweet as"/laid back attitude (I don't think the Malaysian PM would ever do something like this...)

As seen on David Letterman...the pro of Top 10 lists...

My friend (and my sister's BFF) Seira and her friend Sherrie have been working on a short film based on the current Perak constitutional crisis. The film is finally done (I haven't seen her in the past 6 months?!?) and their premiere screening will be held on:

Date - 3rd October 2009 (Saturday)
Time - 7pm onwards
Venue - The Annexe, Central Market


So if you have nothing to do and would like to support a good cause (and perhaps learn a thing or two) enter the date in your diary and come for the screening!

The screening will run til 5th Oct 2009 in KL but come on the 3rd 'cos it's the premiere (red carpet!)  and they're gonna announce the winner *fingers crossed*

So pls come if you know/love them or if you want to see some cuties *winks* Feedback for the movie is most welcomed as the producers/directors/coolies wanna know if they can quit their day jobs and concentrate on becoming the next Martin Scorcese, Quentin Tarantino or Michel Gondry.
