Thanks so much Peaches and TARAAsia Fan for your kind words!!!

I've already seen Ep 1 TWICE.... once in HK and once in Singapore with Team Singapore, Brett and Diane. It's the latter episodes that I'm shaking under my shell about....  :lol:

This is Melody from Season 1..... She's lovely and very happy. She's actually heading back to New Zealand for 2 weeks to do a travelogue for Channel 5 (Singapore) and the New Zealand Tourism Board. What a lucky girl!!!   :hugs:

More news from Singapore... while I was back.... I headed down to Siloso Beach, Sentosa to catch up with some old, old friends.... just kidding.... they are not that old ahhahah  :lol:

I worked as an intern with my production friends more than 7 years ago  :o  Time flies!!!

It was great to catch up with my old friends ANNE (very dedicated producer; anyone is lucky to hire her heehee) and one of, if not THE best MOST professional (hahahhahah) cameraguy in Singapore IKRAM.

Back to the beach party event on Siloso Beach last Saturday 17 Nov.... it was a showcase of local ROCK bands in Singapore and a few from other Asian countries. The party lasted from 12 noon to midnight and was of course sponsored by Nokia. I made a video diary of this and will post it over the coming weekend. It was fun chilling out on the beach, listening to some very interesting original rock songs.... one of my "favourite" had almost the same line "I wanna date a porn star" for the entire song.  :lol3:

Have a sneek peak at the party here first  :tup:

To listen and support the bands further, please visit nokia-asia.com/iac

Hi everyone,

All hell has broken loose.....

The show begins!!!

First of all, I learnt MANY life lessons from the race and what NOT to ever do again with anyone. Shit happens. Since coming back, I had a different perspective on a lot of things and a lot of people I thought were my friends. So now, I'm much closer to a group of friends who bring out the VERY best in me, and my relationships have never been better. I also have to credit Brett & Kinar for their great influence on me, especially my talks with Brett. He's so wise and so clear on what priorities to have in life.

Hey, nice to see a TARA2 racer around here!  :waves:

Anyway, may I ask whats up with Aurelia and your quote about her during the roadblock? Was it that stressful due to it being hard to eat but at the same time not wanting to be at the back of the pack?

But you guys did great, finishing in 5th place...So congrats on a good start!  :tup:

All the best in the edit and thanks in advance!

Sophie! Y'all did great! And so far so good on the edit although I can see how they set you up as the fighting-former friends. But I thought y'all did amazingly well! I was a nervous wreck the whole time--there was so much going on!

And just how nasty WERE those eggs??

Going back to reality again....

I was just meeting some girl-friends for a quick drink last Saturday night (24 Nov).... then rush to an Omnimax movie called Deep Sea in TST, and meet up with them again after the movie. BUT I ended up missing my movie to become their official "Banger Sisters" group photographer, handbag caretaker, bar chop checker (we had to get a stamp from each bar after completing the task and drink at all 12 bars in 1.5 hours), runner, cheerleader and direction pointer (the girls got so drunk it's really hard to keep sight of which way the next bar was.... actually I got very confused as well running back and forth on the streets and I wasn't even drinking)......ahhahahaahhahahah.....

I have not laughed so hard till I almost rolled on the floor from weak knees in Wanchai before.... how can running around to 10 pubs be this much fun!!!! it was *(*&^#*@^*($^#($^# awesome ahahhahaha!!!!...... couldn't have had a better sat girls night out!!!!!!

The best comedy of the night Countdown Chart -

10) Sophie running off to find a candle from 7-11 and other bars, but finally got a candle from mes amis to melt 2kg of ice from one of the challenges. But arrived too late and it was already finished

9) Jamie disappearing to 7-11 to get Big Boy condoms so that we could fit 2kg of ice into it..... yah right...

8) Jessie eating crackers for extra energy and gum for fresh breath (you never know hehehehe) as we ran from pub to pub

7) Girls getting stuck with string through their clothes, pulling and tagging and finally taking off their shirts

6) Wendy's rap on stage at the end; Wendy's screaming at the cockroach when she bent over to get the brush to paint the dangling apple

5) Jamie going down on the dildo of whip cream (is this way you're not single anymore after sat night??? ahhaahah)

4) One of the bunnies from the other team (every team got dressed up in different costumes) grabbed Adriane's butt during one of the pub challenge

3) Wendy biting into the condom as she tried to put it on the dildo

2) Everyone puking from eating the smelly tofu and holding their noses at the bar

1) Jessie pulling out a pair of slippers out of nowhere!!!!!....when Jamie's sandles fell apart while racing..... this was PURE comedy!!!!! Jessie had everything in her bag and was super prepared for the race!!! Only she would have thought of extra slippers (just in-case). What a gal!

The girls WON BEST FANCY DRESS for the night because of their original t-shirts ahhahahahah

We're trying to do a rooftop party at my house to drink up that case of Heineken beer we won...Yippee!
More reasons to keep on partying.....   :cmas26

More photos...  :cmas22

The first bar had this drink you had to choose from 1) some weird concoction with chicken feet not just as decoration on the side of the glass OR 2) chili padi ground up into the spicy drink....

Oh boy!

And then there was another bar, after they had finished drinking their shot... one chosen team member had to use a brush (with no hands) and paint a dangling apple. This was when Wendy bend over to pick up the brush, she screamed so loud everyone on the street heard her and every one jumped because there was a cockroach ... a very very naughty cockroach that was hiding behind the paint can, waiting to fighten the girls. The bar staff and I went to chase the cockroach away. Yes, I'm NOT afraid of them wahahahhaha.......

Last ones ..... ahhahhaha   :cmas27

Many other funny things happened at the other bars, but this was probably the one that made us LOSE!!!

Have you ever eaten Smelly Tofu???? Oh my!!!! It's like who the hell would invent something like this.... and call it a local delicacy???!!!!   (:;)  just kidding   :cmas19

We all PUKED!!!!...... including me because I tried to help the team eat some of it in the box....


At the last bar stop.... all the teams had to go on-stage to do a rap about all 10 pubs we went to. Gosh, at this stage.... who can even talk properly hahahah.... but of course.... Wendy the trooper went on with Adriane and Jessie .... just a sneak view of their "rap"

Hi everyone

I just noticed that there are ADS HIGHLIGHTED with certain KEY WORDS in my blog.....

Emmm... just to let everyone know I DO NOT profit from any of these ads NOR am I computer savvy enough to have added them in..... I HAVE NO IDEA WHEN OR HOW THEY HAVE APPEARED THERE!!!

Any idea Peaches and Puddin??? Or they were put up by you girls????

Everyone, I just write here for fun and to get my video diaries watched on Youtube to be enjoyed..... nickname realisophie.
I'm not into making any money from here, I regard myself fortunate enough to have food on my table and a roof over my head from jobs I get as a mere writer. I work very hard, 14 hours almost everyday. If I did make any money from my "new-found" status, I would say it and donate to charities and green organisations I work with on a regular basis.

Anyway, I'm VERY confused on the appearance of these ads here and just noticed them TODAY, sat 1 Dec. Honestly to have these ads here is also a real turn-off EVEN for me. I hope they will be removed soon, whoever tagged or made links here. I hope you understand.

Just to clear things up.

Anyway... the REAL reason I came in today is to wish everyone

WORLD AIDS DAY!

To spread the message of SAFE SEX to our younger Amazing Race fans.... and also to remind others of being faithful and RESPONSIBLE to your partners and not indulge in casual sex just for the "moment". It's hard enough finding that special someone who loves you for who and how you are.

In a city like e.g. Hong Kong, money is everywhere, so I've seen how "easy" it is to be tempted by good-looking guys who will give you ANYTHING you desire to "have" you. But love CANNOT be bought no matter how rich you are.

TRUE LOVE does exist ....... even in lonely cities that are overshadowed by material offerings and temptations.

Life is beautiful and love is the topping that should be sprinkled into everyone's lives.... ahahahaha.... I have to be a romantic..... I'm a writer heeheheehhe.....

Love and respect your partner always!

Sophie, I think Rob, the guy who owns the site is trying something new with the ads. The ads are how he makes money to keep the site running, it has nothing and its not just your blog that has them, sorry.

Hey keep on racing girl! I'm loving this season! What a perfect mix of characters, you all make me laugh and cry at the same time. I love it!!   :hearts:

But okay let me watch the episode over the weekend and talk about it later.... to explain.... just in case I was misunderstood.... but of course I will be frank about everything. The crew is my witness ahahahahhaa....

Hi Tarasia Fan

Yes, Brett and Diane were nice enough to call me last night to see if I was okay ahhahaha.... Sawaka watched this episode weeks ago and told me it was looking very bad for me, to help me get mentally prepared for it. Bless Sawaka  :cmas17

I will be brave to try catching it over the weekend to see how badly the edit is. But I'll write later more about what really happened ... I have tried SO hard to forget....

I don't think disfunctional is the only word to use..... just completely SELF-DESTRUCTIVE team!!!

Sigh...

I tried my best thats all I can say .... and I will explain more later.

After hours and hours in the car driving with her talking non-stop... I just wanted to drive off the cliff.... I got a little nutty.... no LOTS nutty I admit  :pull  ahahhahhaha   :lol3:  Yes I'm laughing it off.... coz I believe in Karma and I'm a better person from that experience!

Thanks for still talking to me hahahahhahah  :cmas19
