now i have constantly been hearing about the ANDERSON school band from my bro Alan Thoo so finally at the event i got to see and hear them for the first time..
these band boys from ANDERSON deserves a huge pat on the back for their dedication cause it was scorching hot on that day and they had to stand still without moving.. man kalau i was in their shoes i would melt by now... cayar lar keep it up ANDERSON boys..

The StarWalk, Scratching Armpits and 1 in a million 3

ohh man i am still not recovered from the lag that is bandung and yes my work brings me traveling again(cewah lag sangat lar bandung tue kan, tapi serious tak larat k).. im not bitching about it cause its for work and of course i travel with a bunch of really fun people who else but penulis lirik dan jugak composer hebat Alan thoo...
this time around i was in penang for The Starwalk.. yup its a yearly event where nearly the whole of penang (kecuali abang yang goreng ayam kat line clear nasi kadar) would participate in. yes. they get up as early as 4am and be at the starting line as early as 6am and they then walk 10km and they receive a cert plus a chance to participate in a lucky draw. sounds like fun doesnt it?( sebenarnya macam tak masuk akal lar kan bangun awal awal mcm tue dan bersusah payah berebut berebut tapi apa apa pun ia hidup sihat dan cergas)... and for you out there who are thinking what is baki doing walking the mile well babes you know me too well.. i didnt walk but then i was there to lend my support to the whole event by emceeing for the concert and variety show before the prize giving.. (im not gonna touch on the event kerana sungguhlar tak teratur) but above all a big salute to all you penang people who took part in the walk cayarlar!!
one of the digicelebriteens Saban took part in 1 in a million punya auditions and sadly he did not make it to top 12 but he was really close... when i found out i nearly cried cause i know how talented and how much this means to him but tular seperti mana org tua tua cakap belum ada rezeki... when its yours it shall be yours..

abang believes in you.. you are a shinning star that 1 day will get his chance to shine brighter and stronger.. but shinning star dont let the dark cold nights burn you out of your shine.. if deep0 down you believe and want insyallah HE shall give it to you..

ok peeps, gotta get to bed now have to be up early tomorrow have many things to do and wish me luck in scoring azizi a venue ya.

i think its time..

i've been thinking for the couple of months maybe its time for me to own up to this page of rambling and constant slur of words that makes up the daily happenings of my life....
it was baby steps when i first decided to put my name to this blog.. and now finally i have reached a brave step i guess and shall with this officially call it Baki Zainal..

no longer do i want it to be known as a starbucks drink of the month.. so hopefully with this people get to know a side of me that seldom takes a peak on screen.
aite so here goes.....

im back!!!

oh man the past few weeks have been really fun and hectic.. the normal traveling down south, up north and side ways for work, my best friends wedding took place, many birthdays and many more little fun events that i attended. as usual i did not get to take many pictures.. hint hint hint anyone wants to buy me a canon camera hahahahahaha...

lets talk about hazlins wedding, there were many up and downs during the whole preparation part but above all the bottom line was that it was beautiful and because of that im now in love with this indonesian song "sempurna" check it out guys. its just soo beautiful. you must be wondering what does that song have to do with hazlins wedding well, the ever creative and brilliant photographer "Ayda Khamalrudin" (next to kid chan ok) did a montage for her nikah and it had pictures of hazlin, geetha and i laughing and sharing our moments and on top of that she lined it with that song and it was just so sweet (ok baki's gonna start to cry again) i promise that i would post up some of those beautiful pics once i get a copy. im looking forward for the day that saif (hazlins hubby), hazlin, lina, geetha and i grow old.. cause by then i do hope that we could relish all these good memories.

geetha, hazlin and baki

today, i attended Chelsia Ng's birthday at Kiehls Pavillion (lucky girl) n yes i came back with more products if you guys are asking hahahahahahaha i now have the traveling set and im loving the bio peel(im trying to convert everyone in using Kiehls)

im soo happy to see chelsia where she is now.. congrads girl!!!!! the girl from penang is here to stay!!

the next few days will be really pack for me.. finalizing azizi's mtv, photo shoot, and emceeing for world aids day(some more free of charge k cause its for charity) im really hoping that all of you could come and lend your support to this cause and learn more about it and eradicate all the stereotype general biases that we have build around this matter lets show our support ..

and of course packing for jakarta.. cant wait for all that and more to come.

from the past few weeks it makes me believe so much more that i am blessed in so many ways.. i have soo many people that loves me and theres always hope out there and that i have a beautiful life.. thank you guys!!!
i better go to bed now, i'll try to write after coming back from jakarta k. but before i say nite nite, happy birthday to badrul for after six, chelsia ng and congratulations to mr and mrs sharifuddin.. sesungguhnya baki zainal sayang kamu semua..

learn-nerds, deepavali and crying....

ohh man today had been very very tiring day... penat yang tahap tak larat.. i have not been this tired because of work for a very very long time.. im not bitching about work cause i had fun.. do not mistaken that but it was really really memenatkan ok.. ok ok i should tell what was it that i was working on just now that i tak larat like this.. i was a part of a pilot shoot and screening shoot for a mandarin version of "Mind Your Language".. yep it was fun cause i got to meet up with new people (there was this model from london who was also at the same time a Taiwanese actress) then there was people from the Chinese theater who was really awesome.. my old friend Osama and of course now international actor Mr Alvin Wong(im so proud of you bro) ..and a swedish model Marcus Bener.. the chemistry on set was just great and i am constantly amaze by ALvin cause he just never seem to stop inventing and coming up with new stuff as a comedian and as an actor.. well lets just cross our fingers and pray that this "macha" would give us wings for this.. insyallah.....
oh oh oh my BFF zeeka telah pun selamat ditunangkan.. congrats babes...

i realized something .. i tear up easily. i do.. ok tahu lar kan tak macho ngagis but then who cares about being all macho.. i rasa i memang kuat dan cepat tersentuh dan menangis.. tak lar yang bangsa meraung dan teresak esak.. dah kenapa nak mampus lar tue.. but then tear drops rolls down my cheeks easily.. semalam iklan deepavali yasmin ahmad yang sungguh brilliant.. hari ini hahhhh oprah's big give... ok tau larkan i ketinggalan zaman semua orang mesti dah tau pemenangnya tapi hello give me a break ok i dont have time for tv unless of course for TARA season 3..go ida.. go bernie.. ok dont get me started on that ok i can go on..huhhhhh speaking about TARA even masih kali kedua ida and tanya peluang untuk stay on i nangis... menghayat hati... ohh ok back to oprah's big give.. i think its such a wonderful idea and i gives all of us hope in such times cause there are still people out there that cares

and just by doing little stuffs it will make a difference.. anyways cayarlar to the winner.. i salute you... ok lar dah mengantuk
ohh before i forget HAPPY DEEPAVALI to everyone out there who is celebrating this triumph over evil and this pretty festival of lights.. dont drink and drive ya..

sesungguhnya baki zainal sayang kamu.....

im a man of color

i have been back for the past few days and my fellow friends who saw me knew that i have just been to a beach some where as i am back to being tan. but people who are not really close to me would give me remarks as "OMG your so dark".. "how to sell now".. "what happened?"
you see i believe that a man should have some color to his skin.. y? because i think if a person is too pale then he looks very sickly.. i mean fair enough if you were born pale like julian moore or ewan or who daniel cliff( they can never get a tan they would just turn red and burn like a lobster)
nice color

no no.. too pale

i feel that when a guy has a bit of color or shall i say tan, it says alot about him as a person. confident, worldly, out going and etc.. i know it sounds as if im stereotyping currently but thats just it.. some people goes to great extends to get a tan, some even pay big money to get a fake tan which i cant understand y, with the money spent on the fake spray tan might as well fly off to some beautiful beach cause with having low cost flight such as firefly and air asia its cheaper to go for these short holidays and get a tan rather than having to stand in a cubicle in those cheap paper undies being sprayed with color that would wash off after your 5th shower and above all it cost a bomb (my friend told me so)..

this is my current color i know bit too dark but i like

im happy with my current color.. cause i feel healthier, confident and raring to go.. most of all i feel sexy and beautiful hahahahahahaha.. i know i know one mans poison is the other mans medicine.. hahhhhh i hope this color is gonna last me for a month or so so at least i could save up some more and off again to another beach for some tanning session... im blessed life has been good.. thank you... aite peeps im going to bed now nite all.

p/s: thanks elly for inviting me to the open house, it gave me a chance to catch up with the guys.. muahhh miss all of you much..

sir i give you "happy ending"

with such a big buddha in the back ground well it does not take a rocket scientist to figure out that i was in Thailand, phuket to be exact..
thanks to eventplus marketing and my abang alan yes, i had an brilliant time basking in the sun and experiencing an island that i have heard many mix reactions from different people who has visited the place.. i would have to say thou my first day there i wonder how could one fall in love with such a commercialized touristy island that was over populated with sex bars and tattoo parlors? yes guys that was my first impression of the island.. but then while i explored the island i realized that it had its own charm... one that only by mixing with the locals and exploring the nature that would make anybody fall in love with this pearl that lays on the andaman sea.. one person that i know off that has decided to live there with the man of her dreams is simone.. i was so happy to see her relaxed and finally being happy and feeling serene.. ben and her showed me a less touristy side of phuket that made me change my views on the island..thanks guys..simone and ben the lovely couple..

i guess im lucky to be able to see past all the massage parlors, gay bars and go-go shows.. cause theres soo much to see and do in phuket.. beautiful scenery, colorful wet markets, smaller islands, magnificent temples awaits you besides the normal high priced tourist traps..

the temple roof at wat cha long

even so its a "happy ending" that your looking for, dont forget to look beyond and experience this colorful island.. im sure i will return one day.. heck returning for just a full body massage is already a good reason..

allrite peeps enough bout thailand.. im going to bed now and shall be dreaming of that azure blue sea.. nite all
