How to win tickets to MTV Asia Awards 2008!

Alright, who is going to MTV Asia Awards 2008? Held for the first time in our country and in our city of entertainment le Genting Highlands, what can I say…freakin’ finally!

But the question is….will you even get to attend it? Will you? You? You? Me? No……… :(

I heard the event is so exclusive that they won’t even give the VIPs their passes till the very last minute. So just so the tickets won’t be indiscriminately transferred to random people.

So yes, even my humble network of media friends can’t get me any ticket. Sigh, I feel so puny *sulk*

Can you imagine…the hotness that is Jared Leto from 30 Seconds to Mars will be there! Since he acted with Christian Bale in American Psycho, I’ve decided that that being in Leto’s presence would mean that I’d be upgraded by proxy from a 3 billionth degree to 3rd degree of separation from Christian Bale. Sheesh, I’m even more embittered now than when I started penning this post.

So sorry, I digressed.

And then, I stumbled upon this picture of Leto….

Jared Leto.

Who needs any reason other than Jared Leto to see Jared Leto eh, ladies?

Oh yes, Leona Lewis will be there too. The Pussycat Dolls of course. And OneRepublic who brought us the overplayed hit that is “Stop & Stare”.

Sigh. I really, really want to go!

I don’t care who you are, but you buggers who are Celcom’s XPAX users….I HATECHU. Because your good mobile services provider is giving you a chance to win passes to MTV Asia Awards 2008!

And you don’t even need to do anything embarrassing or crack your brains to win some silly contests.

Attention XPAX users!

Just follow these steps in order to win ONE PAIR of tickets to MTV ASIA AWARDS 2008:

1. Type XPAX MTV and send to 28881.
2. Then reload RM10 or more on your XPAX and stand a chance to be one of the 6 daily winners to get 1 PAIR of tickets to MTV Asia Awards 2008.

Pretty easy aye?

That said, what’s MTV Asia Awards without all the side parties??? You could also party alongside the likes of DJ Tony Touch, Hujan and Faizal ‘topless’ Tahir at MTV Asia Awards X-Party while watching a live telecast of MTV Asia Awards 2008.

To get tickets to the MAA X-Party, just dress up as hip as possible and get spotted in Kuala Lumpur from 11pm onwards (18 July – 31 July)! Start planning what to wear, people! Dress to impress!

So invest your energy & efforts wisely, cause you’d never know you’d be one of the lucky folks to be at the actual MTV Asia Awards or MTV Asia Awards X-Party!

Eh if anyone of you won any ticket, take me! Take me, please!

Day 1 – Being in Hollywood.

Although I’ve posted an entry on Los Angeles, I’ve never really elaborated much on the city. This post is an effort to make sure that I will not completely lose touch with my experience in the City of Angels. Right now, my memory is sketchy at best but what I do remember clearly is this: I had a grand time.

Even after I’d touched down in LAX (man, I feel glamourous already just saying that – LAX. LAX. LAX. LAX), passed the tight airport security and seated in my van heading towards the hotel, I still had a hard time trying to digest the fact that I was in Los Angeles. Tinseltown. Hollywood.Wow.


The moment I stepped out of my van, there was already a team of film crew shooting some scenes at the entrance of my hotel, Millennium Biltmore. Then I heard someone mentioned that Nicholas Cage was holed up in another hotel nearby, shooting a new movie.

I was terribly jet-lagged but my colleague wasted no time in asking the concierge whether there were any game happening at the Staples Centre. Luck was on our side, Lakers was playing against Memphis Grizzlies later in the evening. We booked our tickets and went back to our rooms to freshen up.

Lakers game.

Krabi, Thailand – Day 1

My trip to Thailand was a good one. I enjoyed myself immensely, courtesy of See Tho from See Tho Holidays. See Tho is one of the most progressive men (extremely knowledgeable & Internet savvy) I’ve ever met and with a wonderful down-to-earth disposition to boot. Despite being the owner of See Tho Holidays, which has offices in Phuket, Krabi, Trang and Hatyai, he personally attended to us and made sure that we had a great time. And indeed, we had a fabulous time. Many thanks to Nicole Tan, who hooked us up with See Tho.

The reason why I enjoyed this trip so much was because we were introduced to a side of Thailand that you’d hardly see in the tourist brochures. All the trip packages offered by See Tho Holidays are personally customised by See Tho himself. He does it by travelling all over Thailand, trying out and experiencing every spot including towns, shops, hotels, restaurants and many more. Then, he would decide on the best and put them on his itineraries.

Personally, I’ve never liked group tours as the pace is too fast and you could never stay long enough to take in the beauty of any place. But with See Tho, there was never a single moment during the trip where I felt rushed. You may think that I’m a bit of a hard selling here, but frankly, See Tho deserves it.

On the morning of 6th July, KY and I took a cab to LCCT for RM65. We reached there and found Kellster and Nigel at Mcdonalds. To be honest I was quite worried about how Nigel and Kellster would be like as travelling partners as I didn’t know both of them very well, but they turned out to be quite a riot :) Especially Nigel. I’ll probably talk more about Nigel in future entries as his funny moments during the trip were priceless!

Nicole and Andy, our official photographer arrived shortly after and before we knew it, we were boarding the plane.

Bound for Krabi.
