The Biggest Loser Planet YM

Biggest Loser Planet YMAdmit it, it’s pretty damn hard to lose weight on any normal day, especially if you are used to having at least 3 major meals from the moment you wake up in the morning till you go to bed at night. So, taking advantage of the bulan puasa, some members of the group Planet YM decided to take advantage of the inevitable weight loss to make it into a fun fun competition among themselves. Just to see who will actually lose the most kilos.

And to make it fair, the results will be in percentage, instead of difference in kilograms. So people like me who will definitely lose only 2 or 3 kilos still have a fair chance of winning. 🙂

Oh, before that, all thanks to Eiz for allowing us to use his canggih weighing machine. It can tell you your weight, your fat percentage, your body’s water content, the BMI and who knows what else. Maybe even your blood type or when was the last time you had sex. Hahahahaha…

Anyway, here are the before-and-after results of the participants:

There were 2 categories to be won: Most Weight Lost and Most Fat Content Lost. In percentage, of course. Congratulations to Kakak for winning the Most Weight Lost category. She actually won the other category but since the rules only allow one person to win one category, the Most Fat Content Lost award was won by AFJ. Congratulations!

Now the question remains whether these people can really maintain their current weight, especially since the next month is really a mentekedarah period for everyone. Hehehehe…

Planet YM Bowling Tournament @ Ampang Point 20/08/2011

Planet YM Bowling TournamentThis edition of Planet YM Bowling Tournament, held on Saturday night, 20/08/2011 at the Ampang Bowl, Ampang Point, really broke records:

  1. At 58 participants, it was the highest turn-ups ever.
  2. With 7 people per lane, it was the most ridiculous lane distribution ever.
  3. Completed at 4:30 AM, it was the latest end time ever.

It was rather unfortunate that the game clashed with another, causing us to get only 8 lanes. Ah well…  hopefully the next tournament will be much better.

Game format:

  • Game 1 & 2: 10-pin tap
  • Game 3 & 4: 9-pin tap

Here are the complete results and overall standings:

Do you have the Mukabuku Compulsive Disorder Syndrome?

If you have Facebook account, ask yourself these questions:

  • Do you update your status more than once or twice a day?
  • Do you refresh your news feed page every 10 minutes or so?
  • Do you become agitated if you cannot access Facebook everyday?
  • Do you lose sleep over Facebook?
  • Did you buy a new smartphone solely so that you can access Facebook everywhere?

Facebook AddictIf you answer Yes to all of them, then it’s confirmed. You have the Mukabuku Compulsive Disorder Syndrome. No, you will not find it anywhere on Google if you do a search. And no, it’s not really a new disease, although, I warn you, it’s really a very very very infectious one.

Still can’t relate the questions above with the name of the disorder? You see.. in Malay language, “muka” means face, and “buku” means book. So there you go. Mukabuku. Facebook. Sounds African when you put them together, no? Hahahahahaha…

Seriously, though, Facebook addiction is really something of a concern nowadays. I have friends who became agitated and broke in cold sweat when they could not access Facebook. I also have friends who slept late, or didn’t even sleep at all, because of Facebook.

Okay, I used to be one of them. Actually, I am still one of them. Although not as chronic as before. So how did I cut down? Simple. Don’t play games on Facebook. Those are really the major cause of all the sleepless nights, lifelessness (since the players really prefer to be playing games rather than socialising outside with their friends or go to work), tardiness, grouchiness… you name it.

Facebook Games

It’s fun, yes, but if your life becomes no life, then it’s really time to stop. Or at least, cut down. I play one game now, a major reduction from 5 a few months ago.

So… are you strong enough to cure yourself from the highly infectious Mukabuku Compulsive Disorder Syndrome?

Ramadhan Buffet 2011… OMG!

Predictably, the costs of Ramadhan buffet at various hotels and restaurants this year confirm one thing: I will never go to any of those places to break my puasa, ever!

Unless I get to eat for free, of course. Hehehehe…

I mean, have you actually seen the buffet prices now? One meal there is equivalent to 10 days’ worth of buying food at the pasar Ramadhan. Man, they are expensive. But if you are one of those who don’t know what else to do with your money, the list below may be of help.

And they still never learn!

Every year during bulan puasa we read in the papers, or watch on tv, or listen to the radio, about kids blinded or fingers cut off or burned some parts of their bodies all because of mercun (fireworks). Without fail!

And yet, they still never learn!

This is the latest example, posted in Kosmo! Online today.

Mercun meletup dalam tangan

Seriously, what is it about fireworks that make rational people go dumb? Is it the noise? The colours? The fire? It must be the thrill. I see it every time I go balik kampung when my nephews and nieces play with mercun. Not to mention the adults especially when the really big fireworks were brought out.

Okay, so I joined in when the big ones were launched. Nice colours… 😛

But honestly, if you got injured playing with fireworks, all I want to say to you is… “Padan muka!”

And kids, please… safety first.
