Annual Miss Universe Break Down

Every year, at around this time, this deceptively named blog gets a seasonal influx of visitors searching for Miss Universe goodies - thanks to the supreme filtering of the likes of Google. In an attempt to pacify the bitter disappointment from the realisation that 'Marissa' is not even a 3rd world country, here is my would-be contestant entry form (see template here):



National Costume

(yes it comes equipped with mini samurai swords tucked inside the headgear)

Evening Wear


What are your interests and what do you enjoy doing the most?
Self deprecation - because it's in the KS creed.
What do I enjoy doing the most? Tacking on "the most" and "the worst" to the end of every sentence.

Name one person other than your parents who has had the most influence on your life. Why?
Australia said David Attenborough (although he would be an excellent godfather)
Japan said Christiane Amanpour
Singapore said her mom (she obviously can't read)
Everybody else cited their grandmother
So I'm going to go with the Bee Gees because of their song "I started a Joke".

What is your career ambition and what are you doing or plan to do to accomplish that goal?
Most immediately, beating Cherie in the Corporate Games @ Thredbo this weekend. I plan to resort to unsavoury tactics, like strategically planting human distractions at each flag; and/or sabotage her board the night before the race.

If you want to buy photos or send me flowers, please forward them to Angela Asare (Miss Ghana/Miss Congeniality).

You like like a ...

Someone once told me I look a panda (insult or compliment? undecided). If this is the case, this head device would be perfect for moi. Giant panda indeed.

The Zero-Sum Game of KS Golf

It's been a hectic, tiresome couple of week, JAM-packed (only one man would dare give me the rasberry, LONE STARR) with bday celebrations galore (spring fever babies), sojourning friends, golfing trips, touch football mayhem, and copious amounts of food and alcohol.
End result?
A significant impost on minimum sleeping requirements. But of course, all worth the sleep deprivation because it's been lots of fun in the sun ... but now I weigh a tonne.

The return of YDG (now full time magician) coincided with Sharlene's bday milestone, and Wayne's bday milestone (plus one). Such an auspicious occasion naturally warranted the revival of the KS GOLF CUP CHALLENGE @ The Vintage - Hunter Valley.

Foregoing previous team pairings of Pandemonium (YDG & I) and Perfect Pairs (Shar & Wayne), instead opting for new teams consisting of Sic Bo (Shar & YDG) and Caribbean Stud (Wayne & I - me being the stud of course ;p)
The prize?
Bottles of wine (of winner's choice) and the usual bragging rights.

We all started on par (oh the pun!)

... until Sic Bo found the rough

... and the double whammy sand bunkers. Poor SicBo, the bunkers were big enough to consume their self confidence.

... meanwhile Caribbean Stud was cruising along, casually wondering which semillion would go best with beef casserole dinner.

Caribbean Stud - winners! And unfortunately, the zero sum game of KS golf dictates, what was a fairly predictable outcome: SicBo - losers! Perhaps next time you should go with the name 'Two Up'. The added advantage may give you a fighting chance in KS GOLF CHALLENGE Mark II.

Before I sign-off, happy birthday all those Jun/Jul babies. I offer these pictures as proxy for your bday celebrations.
