இ Bloggers Anonymous (BA) Anyone?

Heard of the most common 'Anonymous' of the whole lot is Alcoholics Anonymous (AA). Here is an abstract from Wikipedia mentioning about the "twelve-step program" which is a set of guiding principles outlining a course of action for recovery from addiction, compulsion, or other behavioral problems. The method was then adapted and became the foundation of other twelve-step programs such as Narcotics Anonymous, Cocaine Anonymous, Overeaters Anonymous, Co-Dependents Anonymous and Debtors Anonymous. As summarized by the American Psychological Association, the process involves the following:
  • admitting that one cannot control one's addiction or compulsion;
  • recognizing a greater power that can give strength;
  • examining past errors with the help of a sponsor (experienced member);
  • making amends for these errors;
  • learning to live a new life with a new code of behavior;
  • helping others that suffer from the same addictions or compulsions. Narcotics Anonymous, Cocaine Anonymous, Overeaters Anonymous, Co-Dependents Anonymous and Debtors Anonymous
Wonder is there such a term called Bloggers Anonymous (BA)? Our Panda friend, foongpc used to mention this word often. Lately another blogger friend CH Voon got 'poisoned' and addicted to one of the games in faceBook and maybe someone in future would say you suffer from Facebookie Anonymous (FA). We shall leave this aside for the moment and shall cross the bridge when we are there. The future is yet to come..

Heard from a BLOGGEROLIST SPECIALIST (don't google, no such word) who says too much 'Blogging' may affect 'Clogging' of the brain and if not treated early would spread like wild fire causing Cardiac Disorientation, Phyche Disorder, Square eyes and worst of all Erectile Dyfunction. How true? One obvious Symptom you can test whether you have got Bloggers Anonymous (BA) is to check whether you would be sitting right in front of your computer blogging even before your breakfast and worst case even before brushing your teeth. Or another easy way out is to do yourself a big favour, view video clip to examine if you have the symptom visibly embedded.

On a serious note sorry folks not too sure the 'twelve-steps program' would be applicable to Bloggers Anonymous (BA) in future or will there be any (BA) or not, yet to be tested. Who knows the first case maybe from bolehland, Malaysia? At the moment will just have to apply a D.I.Y. program to nip in the bud and be extra careful and mindful not to blog excessively for more than 18 hours in a day, eight days a week and 53 weeks a year. Don't forget you've got a life to live..Happy Blogging.

The moment of truth - Congratz to Faisal Admar who is the new Champion Blog Idol 2010. It has been an exciting race right from the very start and Bananaz took it as a F1 race, steering nervously merely hoping not to crash out in the first initial rounds so as  to have the chance and thrill of racing. Must admit Faisal Admar is too tough to fight with 129 votes vz 105 votes. Bananaz would again like to thank those Voters who supported in all the earlier and final round with a big "Thank You". It was much more tedious than the previous rounds with lots of blood sweat and tears involved sending countless emails and smses with follow ups phone calls. It was a great experience to learn and know almost all of them bloggers, friends, colleagues and relatives on the same repeated message and can  actually see the good bad and ugly. Thankz my lucky stars to have few blogger friends who added strength to help out.

Bananaz would like to acknowledge with gratitude a few very outstanding blogger friends for their strong continuous support and truly appreciate their effort and contribution. My deepest and heartfelt appreciation goes to the first blogger who is no stranger to all, the past Blog Idol 2009 Champion [foongpc] for all his invaluable tips and suggestions when Bananaz was lost just as Round 1 kicked off who shared his kind advice. Second also another blogger just like foongpc whom I have never met before, is CH Voon who did a hard sell not only once but twice for Bananaz in his blog with full of concern who sent a full checklist on the things needed to do. Lastly the third blogger friend Peteformation who forwarded my emails and spent countless hours posting in his foodie list of followers clicking away with messages - vote "You're The Voice". Wowie I am really very touched, last but not the least my special thankz to the person who was instrumental and responsible for organising this event the one and only Bluedreamer for steering the helm pretty well despite his tight schedules in between studies and interruption caused by typhoon Basyang..Also not forgetting my sincere thankz to all the other ten participants who gave their best especially the Top #3 Blog Idol, Mariuca who occasionally showed up with her  kind words to give Faisal & Bananaz some motivation..XieXie.

இ Paul the Oracle Octopus predicts Blog Idol 2010?

Just a little bit too late as at July 12, 2010, Paul retired from making predictions. Paul's owners stated "He won't give any more oracle predictions - either in football, or in politics, lifestyle, economy or even Blog Idol 2010. Paul the Oracle Octopus goes eight for eight during the World Cup who finally ended its career. Eight is enough. Honestly Paul would not want to be involved in the 'DUEL' or anything near to Crouching Tiger {Faisal} or Hidden Dragon {Bananaz}. Moreover Paul hates eating bananaz, prefer his favorite mussels. Another 7 more gruesome days with 6 night mares to the Final Countdown before facing the Moment of Truth..will it be joy & jubilation or tears..? 

Dear readers hope you are not bored to death with the Idol thingy, Bananaz would apologise and sorry for posting them constantly. Just bear with it for the time being until the Final Countdown on 21 July 2010. This song has a very meaningful lyric and carries a great message about CHANGE.. "This time, we know we all stand together. With the power to be powerful. Believing, we can make it better".. Shall take this golden opportunity to sincerely thank all my voters and of course not forgetting those who voted in all the earlier 8 Rounds as well. For those who are reading this Idol contest for the first time and happens to like my favorite song *You're The Voice* you can vote HERE tQ.

இ Blog Idol FINAL ROUND : Most Favorite Song *YOU'RE THE VOICE*

Oh-ö-ö-ö, Whoa-ö-ö-ö! Wake me I'm dreaming? After encountering all the heart pounding plus missing some heart beat coupled with biting nails trailing behind round after round Bananaz is finally into the Final. Sorry Mariuca you 'fought' pretty well, great choice of songs you've got. Moment of Truth ~ The Clash of Tiger vz Dragon is about to begin pretty soon and guess who shall be the Blog Idol 2010, Crouching Faisal or Hidden Bananaz? All the best to you Faisal, Good Luck!. Once again this can never ever have happened for Bananaz to go this far without the strong continuous support of fellow bloggers, friends and relatives for upholding my votes. T:H:A:N:K Y:O:U so much.

You're The Voice" was awarded the 1987 Aria Award for "Single of the Year". The song was one of the biggest hits of the year in Australia, topping the singles chart there for many weeks. It is also one of Farnham's biggest international successes. "You're the Voice," peaked at #1 in Sweden and Australia, as well as being a Top Ten hit in some European countries: #3 in Switzerland, #6 in the UK, and #6 in Austria".

Bananaz would like to borrow the chorus of my most favorite song ~ "You're the voice, try and understand it. Make a *VOTE* and make it clear. Oh-o-o-o, whoa-o-o-o!" tQ once again..

இ Living in 2Jilo1Jilo - Ridiculously True

Nowadays with the high technology in our current lifestyle we almost have forgotten those good old days. Received this email from friend Brigitte and I kinda agree with her absolutely how we lived a ridiculously life..

Living in 2010


1. You accidentally enter your password on the microwave.

2. You haven't played solitaire with real cards in years.

3. You have a list of 15 phone numbers to reach your family of 3.

4. You e-mail the person who works at the desk next to you.

5. Your reason for not staying in touch with friends and family is that they don't have e-mail addresses.

6. You pull up in your own driveway and use your cell phone to see if anyone is home to help you carry in the groceries.

7.  Every commercial on television has a web site at the bottom of the screen.

8. Leaving the house without your cell phone, which you didn't have the first 20 or 30 (or 60) years of your life, is now a cause for panic and you turn around to go and get it.

10. You get up in the morning and go on line before getting your coffee.

11. You start tilting your head sideways to smile. : )

12. You're reading this and nodding and laughing.

13. Even worse, you know exactly to whom you are going to forward this message.

14. You are too busy to notice there was no #9 on this list.

15. You actually scrolled back up to check that there wasn't a #9 on this list.


Have a nice weekend and Happy Blogging.

Get a life I am Getting a Life too..

இ Don't Go For Medical Check Up This Month

Sol + stice derives from a combination of Latin words meaning "sun" + "to stand still." As the days lengthen, the sun rises higher and higher until it seems to stand still in the sky. As a major celestial event, the Summer Solstice results in the longest day and the shortest night of the year. The Northern Hemisphere celebrates in June, but the people on the Southern half of the earth have their longest summer day in December. We have experts claiming that the whole of June/mid-July month may not be an ideal month for medical check up or for major operation in's the reason why..check out the video below..

Gotcha! Nothing wrong with the Summer Solstice but during *Waka Waka* World Cup fever its not even safe to even go for out breakfast as the food could be semi-cooked haha. So tune in to NED vz ESP 11Jul 20:30hrs (local time 02:30Hrs 12Jul). Wanna grab the bulls by its horns or go Oranje?

Thanks to Bernard Chou for sharing the joy..

இ Salute to Nine Contestants of Blog Idol 2010

Whoa! We are coming to the Semi-final of Blog Idol 2010 with the remaining top three contestants at the podium with only two more laps to go. Would seize this opportunity to thank Bluedreamer once again and with salutation I take my hat off to the nine retired Blog Idol contestants for a good and exciting competitive race. You guys are great and sporting who successfully kept this poor 'NKOTB' ~ New Kid On The Blog, a newbie green Bananaz biting off all finger and toe nails coupled with the heart missing a beat while looking at the votes count. Bananaz has been trailing behind safely all these while keeping fingers crossed and P:U:S:H diligently "Pray Until Something Happens" hoping not to crash out so as to be able to participate in all the races until the checkered flag which most F1 drivers would always look forward to. It would be awesome to feel the moment when passing the finishing line with the waving checkered flag. This would not have happened for Bananaz to reach this far without the continuous strong support of my VOTERS. Sorry 1001 apologies I am unable to name all of them here. I hereby wish to say this two words from the bottom of my heart which I truly and sincerely appreciate your support very much ~ "T:H:A:N:K Y:O:U".

For this semi-final round on Classic medley, Bananaz has chosen a beautiful and meaningful song by Simon & Garfunkel with the lyrics which many would have known ~ "People talking without speaking, People hearing without listening, People writing songs that voices never share. And no one dare..Disturb.. The Sound of Silence.."

The song propelled them to stardom and, together with two other top-five (in the U.S.) hits in the summer of 1966, "I Am a Rock" and "Homeward Bound," ensured the duo's fame. In 1999, BMI named "The Sounds of Silence" as the 18th-most performed song of the 20th century. In 2004 it was ranked #156 on Rolling Stone's list of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time, one of the duo's three songs on the list. ~ wikipedia.

Lyrics | Simon And Garfunkel lyrics - The Sound Of Silence lyrics

If you love *The Sound of Silence* and wanna vote please click HERE. For the vote to be valid you need to vote two (2) songs meaning you gotta choose one more song from the list either "Memory" or "Woman". Good luck to both Mariuca and Fasial..all the best! Check it out at the sidebar on the right for current updates of the contest.

Thank You once again and happy fingers clicking good.
