The Happiest Blog

June 23, 2008

Various blogs were created for various reasons by their authors. From raves to rants, flame-wars in the blogsphere to reporting about wars, past and present. From retro to techies. Whatever you can think of, it is somewhere out there.

Feeling down on a Monday? Here is a blog which the author hopes to put a smile on your face. Sharing an article from My Paper. Now there is a reason to smile.

NEW YORK: Mr Terence Chang wants to promote happiness to as many people as possible. So the Taiwanese began a personal online project, called The Happiest Blog, to collect the most recognised symbol of happiness – smiles. In less than three months, the website www.smilemyday.com has collected more than 150 smiles, reported www.happynews.com. “A great smile will bring happiness to the people around you, which will make you happy too,” Mr Chang said. He had worked as an IT consultant in Phoenix, Arizona, before deciding to journey out on his own as an Internet entrepreneur.

His dream was to be able to travel around the world and help people to be happier. He created a few retail websites and began contributing to business and social networking blogs. In February, however, he hit upon The Happiest Blog project. Said Mr Chang: “Finding happiness isn’t so difficult. And one of the best ways to spread happiness is through smiles.” His goal is to collect photos of as many smiles as he can, and to post them on his site where others can enjoy them. Initially, he found most of the smiles for his blog on Flickr, the Web-based photo-sharing community. Then he started asking his blogger friends to share their happiness with his readership through a photo of their great smiles, along with the answers to simple questions about happiness. “They love the blog and how they become happier by seeing other smiles,” Mr Chang remarked. He intends to continue blogging at The Happiest Blog as long as it takes. He enjoys the project and the opportunity to learn about how different people achieve happiness. He said: “I encourage more people to participate in the happiness project. By answering a few simple questions and submitting a great smile photo, you can help to make the world a happier place.”

Jeff Dunham the ventroloquist

June 6, 2008

It’s Friday and perhaps the performance of stand-up ventroloquist comedian Jeff Dunham gives you a well deserved break for the weekend.

The recent runaway success of this shrewd, contemporary, and cutting-edge comedy team has now moved Dunham and his three-foot tall sidekicks out of comedy clubs and into sold-out concert halls and performance arenas across the country. Dunham’s team consists of ‘Peanut’, a frenzied and fast self-described ‘comic genius’, who claims origin from an uncharted island in Micronesia. Then there’s ‘Walter’, an everyman-curmudgeon whose opinions on any person or any subject spew forth in a delightfully unbridled fashion; ‘José Jalapeño’ avoided his destiny to be eaten when he teamed up with Jeff after an accident in his home country of Mexico, which permanently placed him, ‘on a stEEK!’; There’s ‘Melvin’, a mild-mannered, no-real-power superhero who wants to save our country from evil, meanwhile he keeps getting locked inside the suitcase; And finally there’s ‘Achmed’, the dead terrorist…Yes, the dead terrorist. Did we mention this show was cutting-edge?

Here’s a bit more of Jeff Dunham from Wikipedia as well as his site at www.jeffdunham.com.

Female masseuses padlock their pants while at work

April 11, 2008

An article published in TODAY newspaper describing masseuses using padlocks to lock up their skirts and pants while at work to make it clear to customers that sex is not on offer during the massage. Will a simple `NO’ be sufficient to tell customers that sex is on on offer? Here’s the story.

JAKARTA – Massage parlours in an Indonesian town are asking their female masseuses to padlock their skirts and pants to make it clear that sex is not on offer. But, the move has been protested as prejudiced by the women’s affairs minister of Indonesia, where massage parlours are often a front for prostitution. “It is not the right way to prevent promiscuity,” Ms Meutia Swasono was quoted as saying in yesterday’s Jakarta Post. “It insults women … as if they are the ones in the wrong.” At least one parlour in the tourist town of Batu on the island of Java has required its masseuses to padlock their skirts or trousers to show patrons that the establishment does not tolerate prostitution. Others in the town started following suit after local officials suggested it was a good idea at a recent meeting with parlour owners. Television footage and photos have shown several masseuses with small padlocks in the zip of their pants or skirts in recent days. “The padlocking phenomena has been seen at various parlours, and it is something we like,” said Imam Suryono, the head of the town’s public order authority. He denied media reports that he had formally ordered them to wear padlocks. – AP

Just Jokes

April 7, 2008

Something to chase away those Monday blues.

1. Have you heard about the proposal between KIA of Korea and SUZUKI of Japan to set up a joint venture company in Singapore to build a hybrid car which will be named KIASU?

2. Have you seen the Made-in-Malaysia car ‘Kancil’? You know, that very little 600 cc car ??? Well, Dr M really wanted to sell it to the US, so when Dr M paid a visit to the White House after finishing formal discussions with George Bush, Dr M checks with Bush to find out if there is a way to sell the Kancil in the USA. After having looked at the brochure, Bush said, You know, I
think this ‘Kernchill’ is too small for us Americans. Not one who gives up easily, Dr M persisted and finally Bush offered, ‘Ok, take this number down. This guy is my good buddy and he’s also the CEO of the biggest compact car distributor in North America’. Dr M was satisfied with the meeting and returns to Malaysia. The next day he called the number and a lady answered, ‘TOYS R US’, Can I help you’.

3. Mr. Samy-vellu went for the recent United Nations’ meeting. He represented the Malaysian Prime Minister. All nations were discussing about space exploration by the year 2003. Here are
some of the conversations:

China Delegate : ‘By 2003, China will start their moon exploration project.’

Russian Delegate : ‘We too, we are going to explore the moon. This time we will see to it that our cosmonauts will step on the moon.’

George Bush : ‘We the United States will also explore the moon for the second time.’

Malaysian Delegate: ‘By 2003, Malaysia will explore the sun.’

There was a long silence. Bush stood up and asked the Malaysian Delegate: ‘Isn’t it too hot to explore the sun?’

Samy Vellu (after a long silence): ‘We will do it in the evening.’

Bound to fail

January 28, 2008

You will have read in the recent newspapers on an article about the comments made by a principal of a secondary school to the Sec 5 pupils saying that they stand a better chance by applying for entry into ITE rather than making an attempt to sit for their O Levels exams. “Through Train” – as in having the academic ability to skip the O Levels exams and proceed directly for the A Level exams or perhaps it could mean that the school is “through” with training you? Let’s hear the podcast from Mr Brown on Bound to Fail.
