Outrun the security guard!


I have enjoyed a very rich life and taken all the risks that comes with living life on the fast lane. I can’t say I have any regrets…if I had to go through it all again, I would have done the same thing. However, the only fallout that really got to me was when I was…er, asked politely to stay at a facility with limited access to the general population a.k.a incarceration. *runs out of euphemisms*


I have since then made it my personal resolution to not ever get into the same situation again. /cue “You’ll never take me alive!”


However, I have participated in a blogathon where we had to sit in an enclosed space for 24 hours in total. The only difference is that my fellow bloggers were not murderers or serial rapists (at least I don’t think they are ;)) and I didn’t have to watch my back every time I dropped something. smirk


It was actually pretty fun, in hindsight.


There is an upcoming event where 4 bloggers will be physically confined to an enclosure and asked to perform various tasks. I don’t know what the tasks are but I can throw out a couple of suggestions to the event organizers!

Hold it in!


I actually saw this in those wacky Japanese game shows. The participants were forced to drink several liters of beer, stripped down to their loincloth and forced to sit in a tub full of water complete with ice cubes. The man who manages to hold it in the longest wins the challenge.

This was in winter and one memorable scene which still makes me laugh to this very day is one guy whose face was practically contorted in concentration, before deciding to throw in the towel.

He actually ran sideways like a crab to the toilet before the boos of the crowd made him rescind his moment of weakness and he retreated back to the tub. The expression on his face? Priceless! HAHAHA! These Japanese sure know a thing or two about making their tasks akin to torture.

Outrun the security guard!


Okay, now since this thing is being held in a mall I have a great idea for a task. Each blogger has to shoplift something from a specific store. There will the the usual CCTVs and corporate security guards around but they won’t know which ones are the bloggers. The person who reaches the exit of the mall wins! However, if you get caught, you still have an option – break free from the guard and make a run for it!!!! The first blogger who gets to the mall exit wins (coz that’s where the jurisdiction of the mall cops ends).

Guess the exit!


This is a spin off from the second task and also inspired by those crazy Japanese game shows. Each blogger will be given free reign to run through the mall and try to exit the mall. Think Cube the movie. The automatic glass doors are all locked except for one, but the bloggers would not know which one it is.

The trick here is that every single blogger will have to run headfirst at full speed towards the auto glass doors – it has an element of luck to it so it can be a tie-breaker. If it’s the correct (operating) glass door, you’re off scot free. If it’s not, well, it’s time to break out the ice packs for that bruise on your head. smirk


Yup, it’s the second incarnation of Marquis de Sade here. smirk

There will also be a contest running on Astro’s Facebook page starting on the 1st of June. It seems that one of the mechanics would be to comment on a moment when you wish you can record in your life. This is an easy one for me. I would choose my time with Stephanie – I was 24 and she was 29. She’s perhaps the only person I’ve ever truly loved in my life, so I can replay it over…and over…and over…again.


Oh well, back to the event, just be thankful that I am not the person who’s organizing the tasks. Haha!


The four bloggers who will be at this event on the 5th of June will be Michael, Eiling, RedMummy and BeautifulNara in conjunction with the Astro PVR roadshow.

I consider both Mike and Mira to be my friends and I’ve even shared the same room (but not the same bed la) with Nazuwan in Kuching but I’ve been asked to choose one blogger to support and that has gotta be:



She’s been an awesome friend and even invited me to celebrate Chinese New Year with her family last year in Ipoh so sorry guys, I’m going to root for Eiling. I know her sisters too – just bumped into Yiling a couple of days ago. I’ll be there the entire day to support her!


A good friend will come bail you out of jail, but a true friend will be sitting next to you saying, “Damn, that was fun!”.

It’s next Saturday! See you all there!

  3. Idea for the event, each blogger have to drink 2 litre of water before the 24 hour starts.
    Anyway dude, you are wrong. “A good friend will come bail you out of jail, but a true friend will be sitting next to you.” is not correct.
    A true friend will use C4 to bust you out of jail.
    Eiling: HB is secretly in love with you, so to throw us off his trail, he is using those pics. The secret is out.

  4. Thanks, but no, thanks! Anyway, they can’t possibly put so many people in a enclosure when there’s me in the group. I will fill up one enclosure all by myself. Hahahahaha! Have fun…

  7. chrisblitz: Haha! It would be fun right? Especially the Guess the Exit task. Imagine having to run headfirst through a glass door, not knowing if it is locked or will open. =D
    Redmummy: Hello Mira! I support you too k! Had to choose one but no worries, I support you all too. πŸ™‚

  8. Come on mate, aresourceful lad like you, I am sure you can lay your hands on some C4 if you wanted to. Grease some palms and doors will open.
    Are the Lim sisters married?

  9. Niki Cheong: Noooooo I support you too. =D

    WEEN: Haha! Buddy, I was in .au for 4 years and most Asians aren’t into true grassrote rave/doof scenes (as in the less than legal ones) while I am, along with a healthy interest in certain chemicals so naturally I had more Caucasian friends than Asian. πŸ™‚
    e: Haha! Yeah, indeed bro. πŸ™‚
    rocket: C4? No way in hell I can get that. Semiautos yes, it’s quite accesible, but you’re talking about military grade explosives. No one but politicians can get that. πŸ˜‰
    eiling: Heh! Single and available! πŸ™‚
    rocket: Haha! Some of them have boyfriends. πŸ™‚
    Jason Chow: LOL!
    nicole: No worries! It’s not my quote, it’s an anon quote, so that’s why I put it in italics. πŸ™‚
    ahlost: You can! Fly over for the Astro PVR! =D

  10. dogbone: Heh! It does seem like a fun thing to do. Yeah, it won’t work in Malaysia without prior agreement. Thus is our country. πŸ™‚

  11. Certainly completely with your conclusions and think that you’ve made some excellent points. Also, I love layout , design of your site and also the ease of navigation. I’ve bookmarked your blog all of which will return often!

  12. This weblog seems to get a great deal of visitors. How do you advertise it? It gives a nice unique twist on things. I guess having something authentic or substantial to talk about is the most important thing.
