Opposites Attract or Repel?

No I don't mean Paula Abdul's Opposites Attract (although that was once a fav song of mine) but maybe Paula Abdul and Simon Cowell as a couple *shudders*.

I know a lot of people say a couple who are opposites can be a good thing. They can learn to compromise and accept each other's thoughts or opinions but for some reason, it's not apparent in most couples these days. Before you can even say "Hollywood", they break up the minute the slightest disagreement comes up. The only thing that probably attracted them in the first place was, sex appeal and tequilla!

For instance, the girl wants to go catch a movie but the guy wants to chill at home with a few drinks and the girl's an extrovert but the guy's an introvert and...you get the drift. Neither party shows any sign of giving in, which leads me to wonder - do opposites really attract?

Anyone Up For SHAGS?

Yes, you read it right.

S-H-A-G-S = Socialize, Harmonize, Actualize, Glamourize, Spiritualize (wow, that's a mouthful)

If you're in the mood to mingle with great people, down a few drinks and grab a bite or two, then you should make it to the Bloggers SHAGS Gathering KL. This event is organized by Daniel, who's had plenty of experience coordinating blogger gatherings over the years, which you can read about on his blog :)

Date & Time: 27th Nov 2010 from 6.30pm onwards
Venue: The Hill, 23, Lorong Dungun, Damansara Heights (same row as Jarrod & Rawlins)

As stated by Daniel, this event is not for the anti-social or the nerdy. You do not want to make your way there and end up sitting in a corner with your netbook or iPad, completely oblivious to the people around you. So c'mon. It's on a Saturday night and you've got a long way to block the 27th Nov off your calendar, unless you want to spend the night sitting at home like a hermit!

Confirm your shagging by 12th Nov on Facebook.

IMPORTANT! : Happy Hour will end by 8pm so be there early to drown yourself in more booze :P

UPDATE: RM30/pax for food only - from meat & shrimp skewers, chicken wings, meat balls, wraps, burgers and flavored fries. If any of you are vegetarian and would like to request for some dishes, do let Daniel know!

LEGO Wedding Rings

How cool would it be to have LEGO wedding rings?

Not sure if your other half would feel the same way, but I think the stainless steel ones are pretty sophisticated looking (for LEGO)!

Mother's Milk Surfboard Wax

How many boobs does it take to wax a surfboard? You be the judge :)

Run, Walk, Wheel, Ride @ Terry Fox Run 2010

Yes, it's time to take your running shoes out of the box (or from under the bed!) and dust them off for this year's Terry Fox Run which will be held at Titiwangsa Lake KL on Sunday, 7th November. This year is marks the 30th anniversary of the 5km charity run and the fun part about this is, that you don't have to run. You can walk, cycle, roller-blade, wheel prams or heck, even salsa your way through the course!

The run itself is free. There are no registration fees. However, proceeds from the t-shirt sales go to the Cancer Research Iniatives Foundation (CARIF). So if you'd like (but you're not obliged to), you could buy a t-shirt (RM25 each) and/or make additional donations to the cause. Of if you have a Terry Fox Run t-shirt from previous years, you could wear that too :)

Check out this year's design!

A brief insight:

The Terry Fox Run is an annual non-competitive charity event held in numerous regions around the world in commemoration of Canadian cancer activist Terry Fox, and his Marathon of Hope, and to raise money for cancer research and awareness.
So to recap...

Date: 7th November 2010 (Sunday)
Venue: Lake Titiwangsa, KL
Time: 9am (participants are required to be there by 8.45am)
T-Shirts: RM25 each (can be obtained on the day of the race)
Route Distance: 5km

No Registration Fee!

I participated in the 2008 run but could not make it for last year's run due to unforceen circumstances. So I'm very determined to make it this year especially since it's for a good cause. Every year the response seems to get better and better though. Malaysian celebrity, Yasmin Yusoff would probably be the MC (as she has been for the last few years). And according to some websites I read, there would be entertainment and light refreshments served (Milo truck!).

So block 7th November on your HTC, iPhone (or paper calendar!) and make your way down to Titiwangsa Lake, KL to help raise awareness for cancer research!
