...howwwzattt... my 100th posting...


Reality show, what exactly it is? My definition is quite simple; it is a show involving ordinary folks pursuing stardom (plus monetary reward of course) shown live on the television.

Last Wednesday I watched this “America’s Got Talent” aired on Astro and my, I was taken aback at how some of us could go beyond our wildest dream just to totally make fool of ourselves. No specific talent, no age limit, no gender barrier. You can do anything you like by impressing the judges that your talent is valid that no other can question. The prize was USD 1 million. For instance, there was this 60 something male stripper (love this one) strutting his stuff on stage. Wowww, you got talent grandpa.

I wonder if we manage to get the franchise for the show and re-name it as “Malaysia’s Got Talent” like the Malaysian Idol. I’m sure many would want to show their capabilities and talents on the national network. But the way I see it, our talents here got no originality unlike the American and the show definitely will become no where near the original one. Most will only show their singing prowess, that’s a must. Stand-up comic, not many could live up to it apart from the lawak bodoh and the yelling.

So, anyone out there could enlighten me please? I can’t stand the yelling…

Howwwwzattt.....SEMESTA or SRTAS? Thanks for dropping by....I wonder how many former SRTAS guys are around. I remember bening punished by Encik Zainuddin the former Deputy Pengetua of SRTAS for not going down for prayers. He forgot to ask me my name and I was to terrified to tell him also as it was only my first month in SRTAS and it was the first inspection I encountered him :)
