The Book That Sells You Privilege!

Super Update: I won a little prize (2nd) for this. Not much, but good it's better than none. =D

Think Kuching is a laid back city? Think again with

'My Privilege book 2009'

I am not so much of a reader, but I would like to show support for Kuching's first of its kind 'Privilege book'. As much as the name of the book may sound cheesy, it is actually a book crafted to provide consumers a smart guide to dining, retain, entertainment and services in Kuching city. To top up that, the book comes with a privilege card and coupons that entitle you for discounts at many participating outlets.

Born and breed in Kuching, I will not hesitate to tell you that there is little in this city that could come close in surprising me. But when this book listed out 124 participating merchants in town, I was quite impressed,esspecialy by the 54 dining outlets listed on the guide. I am not so worried about where to get my car fixed or where to get a haircut, but when it comes to dining area, it has always been a headache. When was the last time you sat in your friend's car and went like "where should we eat?" , "I don't know", "what you want to eat?", "I also don't know", "Aikz, go Siang Siang lah!". If this happens to you like it happen to me all the time, you will probably need a guide. More than that this one comes with discount privileges.

Besides, whenever you have friends visiting Kuching, this book can always serve you well as a tourist guide. Bring your friends to places you never thought existed. In addition you can also show any non-local this book, and for the first and the last time,tell them that Kuching is a rumbling city and people here do not live on trees (anymore).

For these, I would recommend everyone to check this book out at these details:

My Privilege Book 2009 launching is on 12.12.2008 (Friday)
The Spring (12-14 December)
Crown Square ( 12-24 December)
Boulevard ( 27-29 December)

If I were given this book, I guess it could be a great Christmas gift that would make me go like...

I am happily overweight

Have a nice day.

Virgin Post

Hello World,

I have decided to start writing in to my weblog earlier than what I had suggested. And I really have to admit that a one and a half year absence from writing has made me lose touch a little. So here it is the new home for my postings, the last time when I design a blog, it took me weeks to get things done, but now with all the blogspot layout features, all I spent was an evening.

One of my friend says he likes the flag on my heading, I have to give credit though to Khairy Jammaludin, the Havard law graduate who married my lame duck prime misters' daughter. I actually took the flag image right from his blog. You have no idea how beautiful are the blogs of our ministers. And it all sprouted right after the 08 General Election. It's funny these ministers think that they lost big in the election because of blogging and the internet. You did not lose because of the internet duck, you lost because you are a duck. You get it? You are a duck. Duckass!

You never know what's under the water

There are a lot about politics that I want to say, just as there are many literatures and philosophies I want to share.I don't even know where to start or how to label my posts yet, we'll see how it goes. As I venture into this new blog, I have decided to theme it 'Personal', I figured out that no matter how hard I try blogging for the sake of readership, I will never get close enough to become a Hollywood or Hong Kong Star.

I upgraded myself from Hong Kong to Hollywood actor after I did this, yes I appeared for 3.8 seconds in Batman The Dark Knight

So I would rather use this weblog as a channel to express myself at the same time reach out to my friends and loved ones.Of course, if you are a stranger and you enjoy reading me,you are always welcome to explore my body.

So here now you are with me in The Andrew Ho Weblog, update is at least weekly, feel free to come and trash me anytime you feel like it. Have a nice day.
