Weekend Wonders

Woooohoo! (For two reasons)

1. My dog Pokemon, remember him? Well he's the International Champion Doberman that I co-own in Malaysia. The Dog Show in Ipoh - remember that? Well, that's what I went to Malaysia for over the weekend. It was a back-to-back show (meaning two judges judging two different shows at the same time, kinda like a two shows for the time of one show thing). Poke (pronounced Poh-Kee) won BEST IN SHOW at BOTH shows! He's now the leading Dog of the Year in the Malaysian Kennel Association's 'Doggie League', as he's won the most number of shows so far this year. :) Big booboo on my part as I forgot to bring my camera.. but I'm currently sourcing for the pics so I'll post them up as soon as I can.

I actually didn't get to eat Ipoh TauGeh, but mom was kind enough to go buy me Ipoh Hor Fun (yuuummmm), and the best pohpiah in the world from the grumpy old man in Canning Gardens. And when I say old, I mean REALLY old. He was already selling pohpiah (and was already kinda old-ish) to my MOM when she was growing up there. *lol*

So we went there, won, came back and stopped in Bidor for a bit (yummiest Wan Tan Mee in Malaysia) then it was back at my parents' place by 8pm Saturday.

Then I came back on Sunday, rested, and had a pleasant surprise this afternoon. Which brings me on to reason #2 why I woohoo-ed.

2. To all the FHM readers who voted for me, a BIG thank you for choosing me to be #1 in this year's FHM 100 Sexiest Women in the World poll. It seriously came as a shock to me, I think I might have uttered a few foul words in surprise when I was told. I went out to get it today and I must say thanks again to David, Simon (photographer), Simon (stylist), Tinoq (make up) for their contribution to my covershoot for the April issue. No doubt if it was not for their professionalism and talent, it would not have been such a beautiful spread that it turned out to be. I will not upload the pictures yet, and will not list the others who made it on the list for now.. cause y'all need to go out and buy it la! :P

Pictures coming up soon, I pwomise. ;)

roy lim said...

Kudos to Poke & Andrea for their respective wins.

Brown Sugar said...

Congrats!!

roy lim said...

Short of sounding too inappropriately suggestive, I think the latest pic of Andrea in the white swimwear is rather well-taken.

Is there a high-res copy that is downloadable?

Will like it to temporarily usurp Michelle Reis as my desktop muse.

hobbes said...

Oh yeah, the Duck Soup wan tan mee in Bidor is beyond good- it's fucking gorgeous!

You are thus forgiven, for missing out on the chubby Tau Geh.

fazzy said...

I dono...but somehow I prefer the red swimsuit shot better than the white one. Its nice lah..but too much white...I don't know if you can get what I mean. The red one has better contrast with your complexion..you don't look so...white.heh..but ahh...your legs...and flat tummy that I wish I had...=)

adelin said...

hey friends, somehow i believe andrea will be the ch5 ah jie leh.

David said...

nono . adelin . if zoe tay is the ch8 queen . Den andrea will be the ch5 queen .. who knws. she might take up acting and become the queen of caldecott ? :)

David said...

really hope someone is able to make or do up a desktop wallpaper of andrea.. so i can put up forever on my comp scrn ~ ~~ :D

adelin said...

hahaha ya lor david that wat i meant mah, ch5 ah jie = ch5 queen.
there's never anyone that i think is consider ch5 queen till andrea comes along. i think she is the one.

wrt acting, i think not might, i believe she will. soon.. begin acting, singing, modelling, hosting wow..

pathfinder said...

(A) What exactly DID you say when you found out about the FHM win? ;) Yes...I was shocked also. :O I'm KIDDING...congrats! :D

(B) You thank EVERYBODY, don't you? Sweet kid... :)

(C) Your dog...you weren't kidding about raising champs! :O :O Those were TWO gasps...one for each win! AGAIN, congrats... :D

(D) Do we get...three treats? ;) And I'm not talking dog biscuits... :P

(E) On the exact day you came back, a bus travelling from KL to Singapore burst into flames. When I heard about it just now, the first thing that sprang to mind was you...fine, you're not a THING. :P But you might want to consider other means of transport...or just avoid the relevant bus company, I'm not sure how it works. I KNOW YOU'RE A LITTLE GIDDY RIGHT NOW...BUT REMEMBER THIS THE NEXT TIME YOU GO HOME, ALRIGHT?

pathfinder said...

Fazzy...

I don't think it's the suit, I think it's the photo. A white suit should make her dark...red, light.

I like A fair...but I like her, period. ;) Don't make her return to tanning... :P

Scorpion said...

She's only 23. Channel 5 queen? "Ah jie"? Come on lah. She's only burst on the scene for a couple of months until now. Zoe Tay had to win Star Search first and then put in YEARS of hard work before people recognised her as Channel 8 queen.

Number 1 dog, number 1 in FHM poll... no doubt you deserve our heartfelt congratulations, Andrea. But don't forget to always have your feet firmly planted on the ground.

Gabe said...

Happy for you:) Congrats Girl:)

adelin said...

Time will tell

fazzy said...

pathfinder: she doesn't need to tan..i think its just the choice of colours..or lighting perhaps.

I don't read FHM but congrats you...you deserve it hotness!

pathfinder said...

"I went out to get it..."

You have to PAY for your FHM? I guess that makes sense... ;)

Andrea Fonseka said...

Ch5 "ah jie" ?? Caldecott Queen? Lol! Must remember I only just started, guys. DOND was shot only a coupla months ago. It will be a looong time (if ever) I garner enough experience to even be considered to be in the same league as the rest of them. :)

Path: Yah. I bought my own copy. heh. Going to AMK to get free copies from the FHM office would have cost me more than S$7 anyways. ;) Wow a bus exploded?! Any casualties?

hobbes: that was *EXACTLY* what I had. :P~~~

To the rest of y'all, thanks for the best wishes. :) I still cant believe it!! lol!

Female Aug'07 issue

Covergirl : Andrea Fonseka

:D

adelin said...

allow me to quote from Female mag, "casting directors and magazine editors love this eurasian beauty so much, we reckon Andrea will be a recognisable face for many more years to come!"

:P

glenn said...

andrea,
do give me an autograph on the fhm edition. and congrats.

Andrea Fonseka said...

OOOOOoooo!! Female mag is out?? Lol! I didn't know that even! Thanks adelin, I'm going to go out and get it asap! Raining now though. :( Will have to wait till its over.

pathfinder said...

"It will be a looong time (if ever) I garner enough experience to even be considered to be in the same league as the rest of them."

I'm sure THEIR dogs aren't champs. ;)

A few years back, my friend got two Dobies...one red male, one black female. The boy's a monster, but/and I'm quite firm with him. I'm a pushover for the girl, because she's pretty and she likes me...didn't you say something about NOT allowing that? ;)

(Apparently, people are more intimidated by the girl's COLOUR than by the boy's SIZE.)

"Any casualties?"

Thankfully...no. Since I couldn't contact you immediately, that was the first thing I checked. I mean...same day, same mode of transport, same route, same direction! :(

It's even made the news...

David said...

damn .. nw i have to go out and buy the FEMALE mag .. :) Cuz got andrea on the cover !! Would love to have andrea's autograph on it . but den hw to get it ? :(

pathfinder said...

"Female mag is out?"

I see Female doesn't give you magazines either... :)

fazzy said...

Perhaps the travelling cost is more than the price of a copy at her nearest news stand also. More convenient anyways.

I was just gonna go "she's eurasian?!"..then I realised she is...haha. that explains the good looks.

adelin said...

you are welcome!

hey, check your mail before zzZzz-ing.

pathfinder said...

Have you ever bought a magazine (with you on the cover) and been recognised by the vendor? Did you get a free magazine? :)

Gabe said...

Gotten The female Mag, yesterday. Andrea, You look stunning:) Love the write out about you. Well, said and written:)

Thank god there is no causualty from the fire on the bus at NorthSouth Highway:) The bus company is from Transtar:)

Andrea Fonseka said...

gabe: thanks luv. :) Nice to hear from you again!
Path: no I dont think she recognised me.. and I dont think staff from 7-11 would be able to get away giving away free mags. ;)

pathfinder said...

I'm just wondering if it wouldn't be SAFER using that bus company NOW (assuming they're not forced to close)!

andrew said...

Andrea,

You rock! Budak Pulau Pinang!

Please-don't be queen of Caldecott! Be yourself and keep it real!

Go case #10! ;)
