NFL Blitz premiere: Mayday X NFL program on CCTV

NFL美国橄榄球职业联赛 超级腕 was aired on CCTV last Friday (19/11) over in China. For those of us who were unable to catch it, fret not as you can watch it here.

looking engrossed or lost in the game?
meeting NFL's big boss who didn't know they were a band and thought they were from China o_O
The program is about 30 minutes long. I've been dying to watch this ever since I read news about it :) I was hoping to hear them speak English but all I saw was a couple of lines hehe. Ashin was particularly funny in this part in the video below: "hey hey hey you you you you you..." "this is for you.... this is also drummer"

Ashin X Stay Real Star tee

This is incredibly funny.

Last night I was browsing at Stay Real's website and saw they had a new catalogue for the Star tee series. As usual there were numerous pictures of the products, including a picture of Ashin wearing the white version.

I chuckled when I saw the Ashin pic cos the tee looked a little too fitting on him. You could actually see his, uhh.. have a look at the picture below:


When I went to the website again today, they've replaced that pic (above) with the one below. It looks like the same picture but it's been doctored, and the tee don't look so tight LMAO!!!

AFTER -can you spot the difference?

Go Kaohsiung

It looks like the Kaohsiung City Government are gearing up for their biggest tourism event yet - Mayday's upcoming 55555人 concert.

Various promotions/activities/contests/etc have been lined up for the concert and they are anticipating a number of attendees, both local and foreign. Promotions include a free tour of Kaohsiung Port and Shoushan Zoo (which comes complimetary with stay at any hotel in Kaohsiung), free ride on the ferris wheel with any 55555人 concert ticket, the list goes on. For full list, surf on to Kaohsiung Travel Online.
There is a contest to win signed concert posters and exclusive Mayday figurines (guess Mayday's favourite scenic spot and local food in Kaohsiung)

A limited edition Go Kaohsiung travel guide will be issued on 5 December (pictured above) and distributed at the concert venue.

free ferris wheel ride for Mayday fans
In addition, the Kaohsiung MRT are releasing a limited edition (limited to only 3,555) Mayday commemorative MRT card which will go on sale on 28/11 at 8:00am (I can just imagine how many crazy fans are gonna camp overnight to buy it...)

Sony Ericsson battery life

I was having a bit of a problem with my Sony Ericsson phone battery lately. The indicator never seem to show "FULLY CHARGED" despite having been charged for hours. Maybe the battery has gone wonky, though it still lasts a good few days.

Why is this happening when my current SE W595 phone is only 8 months old? My other 3 year old SE W850i phone still works fine without a glitch. I think I'm gonna have the W595 sent for a check-up when I find the time, while it's still under warranty.

So I went online and did a bit of research, stumbled on this site/blog with a review on the Sony Ericsson satio mobile phone battery life. It seems to suggest that SE phones have the best battery in the market...

I'm still waiting for the release of the concert DVD.. wonder if they're waiting to release the Kaohsiung concert on DVD..?

Pepero Day

Today is World Pepero Day. I didn't know till Clarissa and Tika mentioned it on Twitter.

If you're wondering what's Pepero Day, well it's a Korean thing (a-ha! no wonder I didn't know about it) I've never had Pepero, but I've had similar biscuit sticks covered in chocolate and I love them! Over here we have a cheaper version from Thailand called Rocky ;)

Major Tao in SG

Major Tao's current "DT In Space The Rock And Talk Show" tour is heading down to Singapore on 8 Jan 2010. Previously rumoured to be held at the Expo, the venue has now changed to the Indoor Stadium. Tickets are priced at $178, $148, $128, $88 excluding the usual Sistic charge. Not sure when they will go on public sale as the various FCs are currently taking pre-oders.

And since Major Tao will be in SG to perform at a charity event on 27 Nov, an autograph session will be held on 28 Nov at Orchard Central at 3.30PM. David will be signing copies of his latest studio effort, Opus 69 and concert tickets.

Archie gets married

I've been reading Archie comics for as long as I can remember, though I eventually grew out of it as they got too expensive to buy. The comic has been around for ages. Wonder if it's still popular these days..

In issue #600 (they've come a looong way) Archie got down on his knees and proposed to Veronica. About time - the Archie-Veronica-Betty love triangle have been going on for 65 years now! Somehow I've always knew that Archie would pick Veronica over Betty. Aww poor Betty, just look at her expression on the cover of issue #601.

H1N1 strikes back

Just when you thought it's safe to go back out again.

China's Ministry of Health has on Monday, warned of a new round of H1N1 outbreak in the Mainland, as the number of infections continue to rise and the coming of winter may bring the number of infections up. Taiwan too, is bracing for a second wave of the H1N1 epidemic *yikes!*

In light of the current outbreak in China, Leehom has postponed his upcoming Quanzhou concert.


This blog has been quiet for the past few days, and I was gonna blame it on lack of Mayday news.. but the truth is that I was sick to the bone.

There's news on Mayday's Tokyo D.N.A concert here (if you can read Japanese..). They will be heading to Singapore next to attend this Friday's Hit Awards.
