  Chaos in the chatbox and lack of sleep... blaaaaargh!!! oh boy that made me sound like old mister Scrouge. I had to admit today (or is it yesterday) was a roller coaster of events. It seemed that I was sky rocketing from one part of PJ to another and then some how making it to Shah Alam beating the armies of scrawling cars.

When the day ended I had sat on my bed and tried to close my eyes... and I couldn't sleep for the third night in a row. With a big sigh I had to say "Dude I think I'm a Vampire..."

Water Intoxication?

Have you ever surfed the internet and learned something really new that blew your mind away?

That's what happened to me about a few minutes ago. I was researching on tips and tricks of the radio DJ profession to satisfy my insatiable need for information about the topic and I came across a story about a 28 year old women who died during and on-air contest.

I was curious because I worked in radio for so long and nothing that was done was ever life threatening. So I googled it up. Apparently the contest was done in the USA called "hold your wee for a Wii" where contestants would have to drink large amounts of water without urinating.

the scary part is that the 28 year old women had died in the middle of the contest due to drinking to much water and no she did not drown. It appears that you can drink to much water where it poisons your body. don't believe me? Check this video out. A news report about the whole incident.

If you want to find out more about it in detail and/or in a more scientific point of view check out the wikipedia article on the subject.

Moral of the story... too much of a good thing is bad for you.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX3?

Once in a while I have mentioned that the camera to my Sony Ericsson K810i had been damaged due to a mid level fall from  my pocket to the ground meanwhile flipping and flopping in mid-air two or three times putting even Tony Hawk's skateboard to shame.

As a result the camera phone never worked the same ever again. I could make calls and SMS but i couldn't take pictures which drove me crazy!!! I mean how am i suppose to blog without pictures. It's almost nearly impossible. I could rely on my fabulous writing skills to drive a good story home... yeah right as if and the moon is made of cheese.

Before I unveil my solution to this little problem I would like to demonstrate how badly damaged or unique or eccentric my camera phone had become by making this video below to prove my point.

  What was the solution you might ask? get a new camera!!! So Emily and I decided to do some camera shopping to find that perfect camera that would fulfill all our needs, pack a whole lot of punch and yet is light enough to camwhore with!!!

So we came across the Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX3 which seemed to fit the bill. It was one of those Semi-professional cameras which is sort of a hybrid between Digital cameras and SLRs. Something like the oxymoronic battery powered petrol car but for the world of cameras.

I have to admit I feel in love with the thing to the point that if it were a living and breathing female, I'd have to marry it. Sorry Emily, still love ya with all my heart tho sugar pie.

Photos courtesy of and Panasonic... cause I can't take pictures with my Sony Ericsson any duh :P
At the moment we are charging the battery for 8 hours before we bring it into the world of sweaty palms and squinty eyes. Man it's like having a baby or something like it.

I'm currently in the works to get my up and running. Don't worry will still be running and kept alive. My blog will be kept for personal updates and random topics not related to my current career path and of course behind the scenes look at what I do on a normal basis and the events I attend and most importantly people I meet along the way.

The website would be more towards news about my current musical project and the soon to be released album which would be released mid 2010 (if all goes well).

The website would also feature Podcasts and an online Tv show which I am currently developing. Will keep you guys updated on it's progress as we go along. Cheers.

Haters in the Box

As of late there have been a lot of hateful messages left on the Chatbox towards those who love K-pop and there have been suggestions via e-mail that I should take down the Chatbox for this very reason.

First and foremost I do not condone these hateful messages and that it is completely not okay to make a statement for the purpose of hurting others. However, I would like to state that I am a firm believer in the Freedom of Speech and in my little world here floating in cyber space I believe should embody that concept. Everyone I believe has there own opinion and everyone has the right to express it. I don't believe in censoring the Chat box or even comments to my posts for the very same principle I mentioned earlier. To me censoring it would be so "1984" and I am more of a peace loving guy rather than a totalitarian. I always admitted that if I lived in the 60s I’d probably be a hippie.

You see, I run my blog based on an honor system where your comments and statements are only limited to your own personal conscience. I believe in the good in people and I would love to trust people because as the old saying goes "do onto others what you wish to be done onto yourself".

So the answer is no I would not take down the Chatbox nor would I enforce any kind of censorship.

However, I would also like to address the haters and say that words do hurt people sometimes more than the hurt of physical pain. I urge for the sake of your personal conscience and for the good I know which is in everyone, that you express your opinions in a way that doesn't hurt people. This is not an order or an ultimatum of any sort and honestly you have every right to follow it or not. Like I said I am not a totalitarian type but this is however a friendly advice to you. K-pop lover or not, we are all people and there is already way too much violence in the world. Why add to it?

Now to all the lovers, thank you very much for visiting my blog and dropping your comments. You guys are the best in the whole wide world and I’m sorry if there were some dark clouds on an otherwise sunny day in the chat area. Thanks again and continue to support what you love, let no one take that away from you.

With Peace and Love,

Moe Nasrul

P1 WiMAX Social Media Event

An awesome event took place last week where I got to meet my fellow celebrities and members of the online social networks like twitter, and various bloggers. It was cool that instead of wearing name tags with our names on it, we had our twitter alias instead listed on our name tag. To make easier to tweet each other I guess :D

I will further update this post as my camera phone wasn't working at the time so I gotta "borrow" a few pictures from a few people like Mike and Jules...

Hopefully I'll be able to upload them all by this Thursday. So stay tuned for pictures of this awesome social event by P1 WiMAX.

Snookie gets punched in the face and Bookfest 2009? huh?

  If your confused by the title of this post then let me explain. As of last week I've been tinkering around with the idea that applications like top tending topics on twitter really reflects whats on the minds of people all over the world or at least the internet surfing majority.

Today I decided to have a peep at Google Trends and research what are people searching for today? here is the top searches on Google Trends for the USA:
1. volksfront
  2. flipadelphia
  3. snookie gets punched
  4. gretchen rossi blog
  5. been verified
  6. ruben studdard
  7. browns beat steelers
  8. credit card connection
  9. cleveland browns
10. angelina jersey shore

It seems that the top three topics have to do with a Neo-nazi stabbing incident, Sookie from a reality show called Jersey Shore getting punched

Then it dawned on me, that this was what was on top of the minds of the people of USA but what about the Asian part of the world? I couldn't find Google trends for Malaysia (yet) so i did the next best thing and found the Google trends for Singapore. Now lets look into the minds of Singaporeans:

 Hot Searches   (Singapore)
  1. starhub singapore
  2. weak underdetermination
  3. hock lian seng
  4. suntec reit
  5. starhub imail
  6. starhub mobile
  7. cytochalasin
  8. bookfest 2009
  9. strong underdetermination
10. starhub broadband

It seems technology and a Bookfest is on the minds of Singaporeans. Does that mean Asians are generally smarter and have less violence in their lives? What do you think?

Top 10 K-pop artists and what else is on the mind of the world.

Having just returned from Penang and spent a good evening resting and attending to some unfinished work here in the Klang Valley, I do what I usually do to take my mind of things; I surf the web.

Out of pure curiosity I decided to Google what were the top 10 biggest K-pop artists at this point of time. I came across which gave me the answer. So far the Top 10 biggest K-pop artist are as follows:









Girls' Generation

Super Junior

Dong Bang Shin Ki

As One

Roller Coaster

Wonder Girls

Big Bang

Some Pretty cool insight, and speaking of insight I then decided to see exactly what is on the mind of the majority of the world. Hence why I logged on to my Twitter account to find out what are the hot trending topics which in my opinion really does reflect what is on the minds of the global majority or at least the global internet community majority. Here are the trending topics so far:

Funny How Tiger Woods is still on everyones mind because of the sudden revelation that he does fool around with the blonde girl types and not once or twice but nine times. To be honest what i really wanna see revealed is not how many women Tiger has pounced on but really what is going on behind the scenes right now and how his publicity team and management are going crazy and adding gray hairs and wrinkles to their already worried features. Not that I like human suffering just that I came from a Advertising and PR background and I know how chaotic things can get and truly that's when your heart starts to pump out massive loads of adrenaline.

That and of course Christmas. It is December and it's not a big surprise. However what really is bugging me are the Christmas Carols being played at the malls. "I say mommy kissing Santa Clause." now was mommy making out with old St Nick? How gross... yuck! Funny how vulgar and violent seemingly innocent things Nursery Rhymes. Oooh the violence!!  :P

For Shizzle My Nizzle... don't know why but I've been saying that for weeks now and way past the 23 day mark to make it into a habit... sigh...I guess I like the sound of it. For shizzle :P

the eye of the Tiger...Woods?

During the previous 8tv nite live Mike Campton and I had talked about Tiger Woods and his whole slam his car into a fire hydrant and his neighbours tree incident. It seems ever since then our dear Old Tiger has been getting into a whole lot of trouble.

The first was a hint of a possible affair with Rachel Uchitel, which she had come out and said it wasn't true and that the people that claimed to be here close friends and leaked out such a dirty little secret to the Enquirer were not close friends at all (or at least not anymore, i mean if my friends leaked out such a secret I'd instantly defriend them too!!!).

And according to, Woods was caught being an absolute "Tiger" with a sizzling brunette!!! hmmmm... I'm pretty sure this brunett is not his wife. see below :D

Yup I'm pretty sure the brunette is not his wife.

Now it seems that there was a voicemail recording left for his supposed mistress- Jaimee Grubbs!!!! check out the article on . It seems that Jaimee Grubbs has been showing off the affection she's been getting from the worlds highest paid sportsman by playing it to her co-workers at work. But dude for a guy who makes millions and has a hot bombshell wife his supposed mistress is damn scary looking! Ladies and Gentlemen lets turn our attention to Exhibit A:

This proves that Tiger can drive really well on the green but on the road and with the ladies..errrr.

Howling at the New Moon

In the beginning... I didn't want to get into the Twilight craze. I didn't wanna be among the so "gaga over how cool the movie was" type people or be among the guys wishing they were a vampire because all the girls are saying how amazingly good looking Edward (Robert Pattinson) was and blah blah blah so on an so forth.
Until I watched Twilight for myself. I admit it was more out of curiosity than anything else because i was like what is everyone jumping for joy about? I confess that when I had finally watched Twilight that I... became a fan (this is where I run to the corner and cry profusely wondering exactly where my manliness has gone)

And not so long ago... my favorite topic on Fly's Fm Buzz Central back in the days of Radio News Presenting was how girls all over world were going head over heels over Taylor Lautner and his new buff look in the trailer to the point that poor Rob. P. was blown out of the water ( thats cause he had his shirt off running through the woods isn't it girls!!!)

I confess...I am really excited about the New Moon Movie coming out and really can't wait to see it. Why? Definitely not for Taylor Lautner but because I have always been in love with the whole vampire mythos ever since I picked up reading Anne Rice Novels. That and the Werewolves vs Vampire element that I think is super-uber cool ever since I played Vampire:the Masquerade and seeing it come to life in the Underworld movies, will be present in the movie. I mean seriously it is hard to find a seriously good Werewolves vs Vampire movie.

Photo courtesy of

It's going to be more interesting in New Moon I feel because not only would the Werewolves and Vampires go head to head as a species but also it seems that a Vampire and a Werewolf is fighting for the love of one human woman. It's interesting to see this wicked love triangle in action and I admit it's a brilliant take on the age old rivalry.

In Short, I'll be watching the movie just look for the guy wearing a hoodie and sunglasses trying to cover his face with a big tub of buttered popcorn.

My Facebook Fan Page is up :D

That's write ladies and gents I've joined the ranks of the people that have a fan page! Now honestly why did I start a fan page on Facebook?

First and foremost Facebook being the one of the best social network out there it makes perfect sense. Why a fan page now? well it all started when Mike Campton told me on 8TV Nite Live that he had started a fan page. Obviously i thought it was vein and then after the show he told me about how it's great for people to come together and discuss the stuff that they love.

I was like OK. I love starting discussions and I do it all the time on my profile although unofficially. I was like why not create a fan page so that i could talk officially about the things I love and of course with the people that loves the same things. That and it would be a great way for me to share with you my latest artworks and of course the progress of my first debut album.

So add me up and lets get this party started!

High Mountain Tea Journey

I remember during my college days I was so into coffee. I drank coffee to keep awake and study for exams and I worked at Starbucks part-time to make some extra cash which I then was exposed to more coffee! I had always figured I was a coffee man with Kenyan Coffee beans being my favorite kind of grind.

Recently however I have reached a new frontier and a little less rugged i guess. The world I'm talking about is the world of tea or high mountain tea. Well to be specific Oolong tea. I know I'm the least likely candidate to be into traditional Chinese tea and maybe the farthest I would go is Green Tea on the side of a well prepared sushi.

Ever since I tried a cup recently I guess you can say i got hooked. First what attracted me was the exotic and very cool way of preparing it from the small tea pot and poured into the small cups. It made me feel like a Kung Fu master or an Imperial Emissary for an ancient Chinese Dynasty. That was the beginning.

Now comes the obsession part of it. I went online and started researching on the different kinds of tea! Did you know that oxygen makes the tealeaves bitter? hence why low altitude teas need that extra two teaspoons of sugar or flavouring to make it drinkable. It all has to do with a process called oxidization where the tealeaves are dried out or during the baking process. Since there is less oxygen at higher altitudes, teas like Oolong tea have a sweeter taste and aroma!!! Hence why Oolong tea needs no sugar and could consumed as is! mixed with water of course.

Pretty cool stuff.

Drive by gone wrong...Dude forgot to roll down his window!!!

Drive by shootings aren't funny for the main fact that people get killed. But there is something comedic about a 'gangsta' trying to 'bust a cap' but forgets to roll down his window. It's like something out of a gangster movie paraody or something very much like Quetine Taratino's Pulp Fiction. Like that scene where John Travolta's character accidently shot a guy in the car.

It's almost as funny as the gangsta who shot off his own balls because the gun went off when he holstered it in his pants. This is a true story, honest

A journey through my second brain...

It's funny how your phone ends up being almost like a second brain. A weird concept i know but if you think about it when you one day look through your phone and it's endless amount of pictures and notes you find that it brings back all kinds of memories. Just as a second brain would.

Here was what was in my second brain.

On the 15th til the 18th of October I had emceed Shojikiya's Japanese Food Fair at One Utama. the event included games and Japanese cultural performances suchas Wadaiko Drum performance, Soran Bushi folk dance and Rice Harvest Dance.

On the same day itself was the Indie Youth Festival 09, where they had a cyber games tournament specifically for the game of Counter Strike.

And much to my surprise a good friend of mine was hosting the Indie Gig for the Indie Youth Festival 09 none other than Rina Omar.

And I manage to catch performances by Dichi Michi...

and one of my favorite bands and close friends of mine, Bittersweet...

Loved how they came with neon colored sweaters and look very much like the beetles. very cool.
