Only in India

What is the deal with India? First two faces and now this.

Take a look at the size of that child! He is 10 months old and 49 LBS, eats 20 times a day! For the love of god! And get this...the person holding the child if the MOTHER! Kid you not. I am desperatly trying to find a picture of the dad.

Think I am better off not having been to India yet. Who knows what will happen!!

Have a good weekend!

I love you the weight of this baby 10 time over!

You asked for it...

Not the best photo but shows the costume. Here you go JB as Madonna -

Didn't really get the hair right but you get the idea.

Again I ask myself. Where has my dignity gone??

Oh and in response to Jeff's comment on the last post. Love that you wanted to be M too. Reminds me of the time when you sent me a dozen roses for Valentine's day with a card reading "I got the moves baby you got the motion..lets get together to cause a commotion" Was there ever a question??? LOVE YOU!

Blonde Ambition

Hi. There I go, going MIA once again. No excuse I just have not been feeling myself which resulted in some major bloggers block. Think it was a mix of stress, homesickness, uncertainty, and a general self reflection. You would think my brush with “celebrity” and non-celebrity I experienced at the Contender Asia would have snapped me out of it but not so much. Well I have decided to pull myself up by my bootstraps and get back into the swing of things. My life is anything but terrible and knowing that you guys are there, while I am here makes me miss you but is so comforting and wonderful at the same time. Ok I am starting to freak myself out by this post so on to other more upbeat convo….

This weekend was a great one. My friend Toby celebrated his 30th birthday and the theme of the event was “dress as what you wanted to be when you grew up”. So can you guess what I was???

[cue Jeopardy theme music here]

I was Madonna from the Blonde Ambition tour…pointy boobs and all!! I unfortunately do not have a picture that really shows the get-up. There were many photos being taken that day so as soon as I get one I will certainly post. I did win best costume but I think that was for the mere fact that I actually walked out of the house in a shocking gold bustier and hot pants! One lesson learned…I am not meant for blonde hair!

The day was really fun. Toby rented a party bus and we did a bar crawl through Singapore. Image 40 people in various states of dress and undress walking through the airport singing happy birthday! Priceless! It was amazing to see people’s reactions to us. It was almost like being a celebrity; people would come up to us and nervously ask if they could take our picture. This happened many times throughout the day!! I just hope my blond head and pointy boobs don’t end up on the cover of some porn movie!

So what would your costume be?

JenniB = Total Loser

For those that read this regularly, you know that this weekend was a big one for me…. The Asia Contender Finale!! Let me tell you it did not disappoint!!! It was fabulous! Staying true to my word I punched, coached and yelled my way through all 4fights. Then as if the night could get any better, Phil and I went to a grab a drink and some food after the fights and it turned out that the after party was being held at the restaurant so I met some of the fighters. Imagine my excitement!!

Me and John Wayne. He lost the main event!! Look at that bruise!

Me and Dzhabar...he is a scary guy.

Me and Sean (another favorite)

Now here is where my loserness really shines. I was so excited by the “celebrities” that my eyes played a trick on me. My favorite boxer on the show was this Australian guy named Soren. He is super cute and seems to be a really nice guy. So after spotting him by the pool table it was my goal to get a picture before the end of the evening. After downing aglass of wine, I headed over:

Me: can I take a picture with you? [smooth, I know]
“Soren”: Sure what’s your name”.
Me: I’m Jennifer [hummm he seems taller on TV]
My fists clenched in my “picture with figher pose” Picture taken. Then all his friends start jumping in the picture and many more photos taken
Me: [inside my head] Wow he has a lot of friends from Australia here with him
Soren”: So why do you want my picture??
Me: [inside my head] Ut-Oh…this is NOT Soren. This is just some regular guy!!!
Me: Oh I just felt like it
Back at table
Me: I am such an idiot
Phil: Why?
Me: I just took a whole bunch of pictures with the wrong guy!!!

Needless to say Phil had a good laugh at that especially the photo with me doing the “fighter pose” with “Soren”. What that guy must have been thinking!!!

Scary that I keep looking at the pics with all the friends and I am certain I see the guy on the right all the time!!! How embarrassing! There is a resemblance don’t you think?

Real Soren

Soren Imposter and friends

All was not lost as the next day, out to lunch with friends, I spotted the real Soren along with 3 of the other fighters. Phil was trying to convince me to take a photo with him but I felt bad since he was eating and more nervous that they would recognize me as the crazy girl snapping photos the night before. Again, I was so excited and staring at them as we walked past that I walked smack right into a pole with a loud CLANK.

The Other Face...

Many of you are familiar with the story of my first bikini waxing experience where the “technician” explained that everyone has two faces and you must take care of them both.

I don’t thinks she was talking about this:

Baby with 2 faces worshipped as reincarnation of Hindu goddess

NEW DELHI - A BABY with two faces - two noses, two pairs of lips and two pairs of eyes - was born in a northern Indian village, where she is doing well and is being worshipped as the reincarnation of a Hindu goddess.

Hundreds of pilgrims have visited Lali, the 1-month-old baby, and her impoverished parents to touch her feet out of respect and receive blessings.
'She drinks milk from her two mouths and opens and shuts all the four eyes at one time,' Mr Ali said.

The child apparently has an extremely rare condition known as craniofacial duplication, where a single head has two faces. All of Lali's facial features are duplicated with the exception of her ears - she has two.

Poor Lali has three faces to maintain!! Was that joke wrong???????????

Front Page News ~ Singapore Style

The following two stories were front page news in the Strait Times,

Hairstylist dies after choking on biscuits

HUNGRY after a late-night chat, a hairstylist helped herself to biscuits, only to choke on them fatally.
Huang Yan Ping, 33, was in the Jurong East flat she shared with two others at around 11.30pm on Tuesday when she started choking, reported Shin Min Daily News on Wednesday.

Her flatmates tried to force the biscuits out of her mouth, but Ms Huang died after a burst of coughs.

She was taken to the National University Hospital by ambulance but was pronounced dead after arrival.

Ms Huang, who came here from Johor 10 years ago, was married with two children, her friend, Ms Zhou, told Shin Min.

Man collapses and dies after dancing

HE LOVED swinging to the beat of arcade dance machines, and went dancing there thrice a week. But on Tuesday, Zhang Wei Ming, 23, danced for the last time when he collapsed and died after dancing for about half an hour.

Mr Zhang, who helped in his father's contractor business, was at an arcade at Dhoby Ghaut MRT station at around 8pm when he suddenly passed out.

Nobody knew how to perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation or CPR.

He was found dead after he was taken to the Singapore General Hospital.

His family told the Chinese evening dailies that he smoked heavily, kept late nights and had Thalassemia, a type of blood disorder.

Don't get me wrong choking on a biscuit and dancing yourself to death are very sad but front page news??? Where's the real crime, governor sex scandals, and Colombian drug cartels??

Actually these are better than the series of stories last week about a crack down on the cosmetic surgery industry...What are Singaporeans to do without skin whitening?? Big news!

Good thing I can get the real news, NY Post, online :).

NY front page headline ever..(talking about workers stealing stuff from the rubble after 9/11)... ASH HOLES. So clever!

The Way to my Heart…

The way to most normal woman’s hearts is flowers, sappy cards or stuffed teddy bears wearing shirts that say “I love you Bear-y much” but not me…I kind of hate that stuff.

Come to think of it though, there are many ways to my heart: food, wine, food; but I have to say that Phil may have just found the express route to my thumper….are you ready….are you set…lets get ready to rumble!!!! TICKETS TO THE CONTENDER ASIA FINALE!!!! Are you freaking kidding me?? He had mentioned this in passing a few weeks ago but it has been confirmed…yours truly will be (literally) ringside for the main event! Who’s the lucky girl???????

Sad thing is he doesn’t even really like the show and I will most likely be yelling like a man…actually…who’s the lucky guy????

April 12th its on!!!!!!!!!
