I'm announcing a temporary hiatus for at least a week. (Unless Nazrin has got something to blog about)
And before I return to blogging, I'm posting 2 random videos for you guys.

I have been seeing the word "success" for so many times these days.
Recently, I watched the movie Borat again, and Borat was saying "Great success!" for so many times.
Not so long ago, I copied some Korean songs from my sister's external HDD and one of the songs I copied is Super Junior's Success.
Someone mentioned the word "Success" in Facebook.
This morning at school, my teacher also mentioned the word "Success".
And when I logged onto Sky Sports news, I saw the word "Success" again!
So what exactly is happening? Why am I seeing this word these days?
Is it just me or the word "Success" is getting more popular? Am I on the verge of becoming successful?
My dad promised me few days ago that he would reward me with something really cool IF i managed to get 3As for this coming A Level in November.
That's like music to my ears, but the thing is, it's not easy and it seems more likely that the chance for me to fly on the sky with my bare hands is even much higher than to achieve 3As.
But thanks to my dad, at least he gave me some motivation. =)
*I'm posting this because I find it surprising to see the same word over and over again.

I was at Hua Ho Manggis Mall supermarket last week and I saw these range of antiseptic mouthwash, with the brand name none other than Oral Me.
Think you seen/heard this before??
I know some of you may have seen this from kennysia.com, but I'm sure at least some of you may not have seen this before.
Well, if you don't know, this Oral Me is supposedly a fake version of the brand Oral B.
This is what happens when you try to imitate or sound like the brand name of some globally recognized brand. You get a crappy name instead.
What I find funnier is their slogan, "My Choice."
It's definitely not my choice.

Top 8 Names You Never Knew Existed
Last week I featured my Top 10 pick of footballer lookalikes. This time I will present a similar form of post, but different subject.
I hereby present to you..
My Top 8 Names You Never Knew Existed!
I would have accepted Cedric or Theodore. But Thedoric? According to him, he has only found one other guy who shared his name through google. Pretty rare, huh?
7. Fish Leong
A Malaysian-born singer called Fish. 'Nuff said.
Another Malaysian-born singer. His name sounds like the name you would have thought cool as a child. You know, it's those days when "Dragons", "Tigerz", "Shadow~", "Lord_0F_D@rknezz", etc seem very cool a name you would definitely use as your Friendster account ID. Interestingly, he has a cousin whose name is Fish.
5. Prince Michael Jackson II (a.k.a Blanket)
There's nothing wrong about naming your son Prince. But why Blanket?
Another friend of mine bore an unusual name. Ex-SOASCians will definitely know that this guy has bagged numerous awards. For every award he earned, the announcer would have difficulty pronouncing his name. Some pronounced Hu-zai-Shee-Shee, others Hu-zai-Shy-Shee. So listen up smartass, his name is pronounced "Hu-Zai-Sees". Huh? How is "Shysy" pronounced as "Sees"? Beats me.
3. Han Ran Jiao
I found this name in a video game I played. Han Ran Jiao.
Feeling curious, I talked to him.
Irreplaceable knife? Hmm..I wonder what that means.
Oh! You chicken out because you just "lost you irreplaceable knife"! I suggest you to change your name to Han Bai Chee, perhaps?
2. Max Hell
As the article (you gotta love the headline) suggested, the child called Max Hell was rejected from enrolling into church school just because of his surname. I don't see any harm in having a name as such. Apparently, the Hell family were of Austrian descendant, and Hell meant light in their mother tongue. Ironic, huh? Hell meant light.
Anyone who had loved Russell Peters would know this! I don't know if the name is made up to build his jokes or not. He claimed to have met this security guard and saw his nametag that reads !Xobile. When he tried to address him, well, now that's the thing. How do you say his name?? Unlike Huzaishysy, you have no idea how to start calling his name. Since it starts with an exclamation mark, must we go like...XO-bee-lay?? Now, how do you pronounce "!"?
Turns out, the proper way to pronounce it is (click)-bee-lay. Yes, you must do the clicking sound in his name. The nerve of some parents, naming their son like that.
What do you think? Found any names you found unusually rare? Share it with us ;)

Blog shared between Desmond, Edison and Nazrin. Edison is no longer a sleeping partner. What D.E.N. stands for is self-explanatory.
