I am a proud owner...

the others

These were the poses during photo taking on the podium at the end of the race. Most of the time it will start with the play of National Anthem of the winning driver & constructor followed by the trophy giving ceremony.

Last weekend on the Formula 1 Grand Prix De France - Magny Cours, although the entire race was dominated by the Ferrari & eventually they won 1 & 2. The Toyota team did a very race a well.

Jarno Trulli took the first podium for this season & all of us can tell he is a very happy man.

If you notice, in normal photo taking all winners will put down their trophies, gives a winning wave & say cheese.
Jarno actually carried the champaign & his trophy all the way.
In his mind, probably he must be thinking - Better soak in as much as this moment as possible where these kind of atmosphere is hard to come by...

Yummy Yummy...

Couple of weeks back I've gotten my mom to cook for me where I have inviting some friends from Penang to come over to my place for dinner.
It was rather a tiring day where at noon I am already at her place doing food tasting & helping her to prepare the feast for the night.

Definitely the meal was yummy & I always loves my mom's cooking. I am so fortunate to have such a wonderful mom.

However I didn't realize this meal had cause some mouth watering gastronomy well comments from some friends where they saw it on Facebook.

Are you on Facebook?

Guess most of us are on, however if you are not??!?!?!!? "Where the (^%&*^) are you?!?!" hahaha!! Just kidding.

If you have not added me as a friend, please do add as I do regard you as my Friend & on Facebook as well.

It is really amazing how much one can do in here. You can have a pet dog (I have mine - a Labrador retriever call Cadbury); sent flowers, sent bags; sent eggs; play scrabble; play warlords; etc... etc...

There are really whole lots of things you can find there. Moreover you can also post pictures or videos of yourself or others.

One cute article which I came across today from AsiaOne is this... For sure I don't do this :)

Poke With Care

LONDON (Reuters) - Should you reject a friend on MySpace? How do you ward off an old lover on Facebook?

Have no fear. Britain's etiquette bible has come to the rescue for social networkers who are at a loss about how to behave with online decorum.

Debrett's have helped to compile a new set of "golden rules" for devotees of sites like Facebook and Bebo.

The rules were put together after research by the telecoms company Orange showed that almost two thirds of social networkers are frustrated and confused by online etiquette.

It discovered that more than a quarter were uncertain about how to respond to unwelcome "pokes" or messages.

Eighteen percent confessed to being confused on "how to respond to my ex when in a relationship with someone else."

Debrett's etiquette adviser Jo Bryant tried to guide the confused through what can be a social minefield.

Acknowledging that social networking has made new demands on traditional etiquette, she said "My advice is to play it safe and always employ your usual good manners when online, treating others with kindness and respect."

And you should never throw caution to the wind.

Mark Watt-Jones, head of development and innovation at Orange, said "Whether you are checking your Facebook profile or posting photos of friends on MySpace at work, these guidelines will ensure you never lose old friends or make unwanted new ones."

The golden rules compiled by Debrett's with Orange are:

1. You don't have to make friends with people you don't know. Think before you poke.

2. Wait 24 hours before accepting or removing someone as a friend. The delay will help you gather your thoughts.

3. Birthdays, engagements and weddings are not "virtual" events. Always send cards or phone friends when there is an important event.

4. Think before posting a friend's photo what you would feel like if it was you.

5. Think carefully about your profile picture. Would you want it to be appearing in your local newspaper?

Pepsi Commercial - Soccer Stars

The other day when I am at the cinema, this particular commercial caught my attention.

Not that I am a super duper soccer fan (although my husband is a die hard Chelsea fan), but I am just amaze with the plot of the commercial where they had fans telling their view of the story. Having all the famous Soccer players acting it out was just superb. By the way this is also for the Euro 2008.

Following viewing this, I vaguely recall over the past years Pepsi had been producing multiple Soccer players whom they have sponsored.

One of the earliest its this - Sumo Players

Then they consequentiality had couple of fun ones like below 2.
Surfing - Do you think they all can surf so well?!?!?!?
Bavaria Beer Festival - LOL!!! I love the last part (pleat Ronaldinho hair)

While searching I found this one which I have not seen before.

In preparation of the Singapore F1 Race

Last Friday I had a chance to board the Singapore Flyer located at the Marina Bay area. It was really a breath taking sight having to view the Central Business district & the southern islands in the capsule while the Flyer rotates.

However what captivates me the most was, I am able to catch a glimpse of the construction for the Pit Stop Garages. Yes, I am not kidding, we are building permanent Pit Stop Garages.

This is the view from the top. As construction is still on going, so its not totally completed yet. But you can see, the roads are well paved.

Here is another view of a turn. Sorry as I am in the capsule & the sky was getting dark, hence the pictures was taken without the flash. (Reflection lah..)

Last but not least, here is where I will be sitting during the race.

Since I am on the flyer, sharing with you some of the photos I had taken.
