As what you all know, I spend a month in Bali for the Global Classroom by Limkokwing University.
One day, walk around the Kuta Beach area where we’ll pass by the Hard Rock, saw an advertisement about the Hoobastank performance at Hard Rock Bali. The ticket price only for IDR200,000 and it’s kinda cheap if we compared to the other performance by the other band. No picture? Hahaha. How come no picture for this time? Hehe. Check it out.
My friend so happy cause he got the song list given by the Hoobastank vocalist & a guitar pick by the guitarist. Kinda cool cause it is 3 days before my birthday! The performance was awesome! People are totally crowded especially the one that nearby the stage. Wanna see more picture? Will upload it soon. Hahah!

KUALA LUMPUR, June 20 — Cheras Umno today asked the government to rename Jalan Ampang to Jalan Tun Dr Mahathir.
The Cheras Umno division chief Datuk Wira Syed Ali Alhabshee also wanted the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) to be renamed to honour both Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad and his wife Tun Dr Siti Hasmah Mohamad Ali.
“I call on the government to change the name of Jalan Ampang to Jalan Tun Dr Mahathir as soon as possible,” said Syed Ali when opening the Cheras Umno annual assembly.
“In Kuala Lumpur we now have Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman, Jalan Dato Onn, Jalan Tun Razak. It is fair that we honour Tun Dr Mahathir for his contribution,” he said.
Syed Ali said he had made the same request to the government when he was a member of the Dewan Negara, months before Dr Mahathir’s resignation as prime minister in October 2003.
“We must honour him when his around, don’t wait until he is gone,” he said.
Jalan Ampang is one of the major roads in the Klang Valley connecting the city centre with the state of Selangor.
The road is home to several entertainment outlets and major shopping centres including the Suria KLCC.
Syed Ali added Dr Siti Hasmah should also be honoured in a similar way for her role in Dr Mahathir’s life.
“I also would like to propose that the Kuala Lumpur International Airport be renamed Mahathir-Hasmah International Airport, Kuala Lumpur,” said Syed Ali.
“I hope the government will seriously consider the suggestion from Cheras Umno. His contribution to the country is invaluable,” he said.
Dr Mahathir became Malaysia’s fourth prime minister in 1981 and continued to lead the nation for 22 years before handing over the leadership to Tun Abdullah Badawi in late 2003.

LOS ANGELES, CA – The internet has been abuzz since this Sunday’s Golden Globes ceremony, where Megan Fox jokingly remarked that she looked like a man.
When interviewed on the red carpet, she said “I look like Alan Alda in drag. I’m a tranny. I’m a man.”
At the time, reporters passed it off as a jovial attempt to cover for her nerves.
However, today she has cleared the air and officially reported: she’s really a man.
Megan Fox was born Mitchell Reed Fox in Rockwood, Tennessee. From an early age, Mitchell showed an interest in both performing and women’s clothing. When having a preacher lay hands on him did not ‘cure’ him of these interests, his parents simply put him on the pageant circuit.
By the age of 13, Mitchell had already started a career as a female child performer called ‘Megan Fox’. Making her debut on an Olsen Twins straight-to-video release, the twins have kept his secret all this time.
As a sweet 16 present, Fox’s parents offered him sexual reassignment surgery, which, given their child’s career, they’d hoped to write off as a business expense. Unfortunately laws prohibit such surgery to be done to minors.
Since then Megan has been working non-stop, and been included on many Hottest Women lists in publications around the world.
Megan, as she goes by now exclusively, also noted this Sunday how much she wants Salma Hayek’s figure. She has even scheduled surgery later this month to get it. After the two met in New York this week, Hayek offered to have a cast made of her bust so doctors can match them exactly on Megan Fox’s chest.
The internet is already speculating whether this news will be worked into the plot of the upcoming Transformers sequel.
P/S: WTH? Could you imagine the people that we can considered as one of the hottest women in the world is a MAN?

Music Memorials | 6:38 p.m. Expect a number of Jackson music marathons in the days to come. According to our colleague Stuart Elliott: WCBS-FM, the oldies station in New York, is broadcasting some of Mr. Jackson’s greatest hits. The station said it would have special programming later in the day.
Mr. Jackson was one of the icons of MTV’s early days in the 1980’s. Our colleague Steve Reddicliffe says that the music channel is now playing the music videos for “Beat It” and “Thriller,” accompanied by a “breaking news” graphic on the screen about the singer’s death.
Update | 6:37 p.m. The Associated Press is reporting that Mr. Jackson is dead.
Reaction | 6:37 p.m. Television news images showed large crowds gathering outside the UCLA Medical Center. “People are already showing up in costume, believe it or not,” said a Fox News correspondent, Trace Gallagher, comparing it to the circus he witnessed during a trial involving Mr. Jackson.
More Reports | 6:29 p.m. “A lot will be said about Michael Jackson as we learn more about this story,” Brian Williams said on the “NBC Nightly News.”
“He was incredibly talented, a child star who was an adult with deep troubles and physical and mental health issues.”
The reports of Mr. Jackson’s death ricocheted around the world with remarkable speed. The news led Friday morning newscasts in Japan.
CBS and ABC are also reporting the news, standing on their own reporting now.
L.A. Times Reports Jackson Is Dead | 6:24 p.m. The newspaper cited “city and law enforcement sources.” The networks and CNN are also broadcasting the news, citing the Times story.
Reports: Jackson in a Coma | 6:15 p.m. Several news organizations including the Los Angeles Times reported that Mr. Jackson “is in a coma.” The newspaper attributed the news to one law enforcement source. CNN is also citing “multiple sources” as saying that Mr. Jackson is in a coma.
Update | 6:11 p.m. LOS ANGELES – An unconscious Michael Jackson was rushed to UCLA Medical Center on Thursday afternoon by paramedics who performed C.P.R., according to the Los Angeles Fire Department.
Early reports indicated cardiac arrest, but a hospital spokeswoman was not immediately available for comment. Mr. Jackson, 50, has been renting a mansion in the Bel Air neighborhood, a short distance from the hospital, and rehearsing for a series of 50 sold-out shows in London.
Joe Jackson told to E! News, an entertainment Web site and cable channel, that the singer’s family was scrambling to determine his condition. “I am in Las Vegas, but yes, people in Los Angeles called me and are with Michael and tell me he was taken to the hospital,” Mr. Jackson told E! News. “His mother is on her way to the hospital now to check in on him.”
Mr. Jackson is scheduled to perform in a series of concerts in at the O2 arena London, beginning next month and continuing into 2010. The shows have been widely seen in the music industry as an important possible comeback for him, with the potential to earn him up to $50 million, according to some reports. But there has also been worry and speculation that Mr. Jackson, who is 50, was not physically ready for such an arduous run of concerts, and Mr. Jackson’s postponement of the first of those shows from July 8 to July 12 fueled new rounds of gossip about his health.
Even though Mr. Jackson has sold millions of albums around the world — “Thriller,” from 1982, has been certified 28 times platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America — his eccentric lifestyle took a severe financial toll. In 1987 Mr. Jackson paid about $17 million for a 2,600-acre ranch in Los Olivos, Calif., 125 miles northwest of Los Angeles. Calling it Neverland, he outfitted the property with amusement-park rides, a zoo and a 50-seat theater, at a cost of $35 million, according to reports, and the ranch became his sanctum.
But Neverland, and Mr. Jackson’s lifestyle, were expensive to maintain. A forensic accountant who testified at Mr. Jackson’s molestation trial in 2005 said that Mr. Jackson’s annual budget in 1999 included $7.5 million for personal expenses and $5 million to maintain Neverland. By at least the late 1990s, he began to take out huge loans to support himself and pay debts. In 1998 he took out a loan for $140 million from Bank of America, which two years later was upped to $200 million. Further loans of hundreds of millions followed.
The collateral for the loans was Mr. Jackson’s 50 percent share in Sony/ATV Music Publishing, a portfolio of thousands of songs, including more than 100 by the Beatles that are considered some of the most valuable properties in music. In 1985 Mr. Jackson paid $47.5 million for ATV, which included the Beatles songs — a move that estranged him from Paul McCartney — and 10 years later Mr. Jackson sold 50 percent of his interest to Sony for $90 million, creating a joint venture, Sony/ATV. Estimates of the value of the catalog exceed $1 billion.
A member of the pop group The Jackson 5 as a child, Mr. Jackson was a pint-size musical dynamo. He under the aegis of Joe Jackson, spent years in talent shows and performing in seedy Midwestern clubs his dictatorial and ambitious father. Joe Jackson and Berry Gordy, the founder of Motown Records, were the singer’s twin mentors during his early career.
Mr. Jackson eventually broke with his father and the Jackson 5, a move toward creative and financial independence marked by his collaborations with Quincy Jones on a trio of albums. The most memorable of those is 1982’s “Thriller,” which eventually racked up sales of 51 million copies globally, according to the Guinness World Records, making it the best-selling album in history.
A spokesman for the Los Angeles Fire Department told CNN that rescuers were called to Mr. Jackson’s home at 12:21 p.m. Pacific. “When paramedics went on the scene, they treated the patient, then they immediately transported the patient to UCLA,” the spokesman told CNN. Mr. Jackson’s home is located only a few minutes from the hospital center.
Cable news channels almost immediately started showing paparazzi shots from TMZ, X17Online.com and Hollywood.TV of Mr. Jackson’s entourage arriving at the hospital. By mid-afternoon, television news helicopters were hovering above the medical center.
Entertainment news Web sites including EOnline.com and PerezHilton.com appeared to be loading more slowly than usual, or not loading at all, an indication of the intense interest in Mr. Jackson’s hospitalization.
Farrah Fawcett, an actress, television star and pop-culture phenomenon whose good looks and signature leonine hairstyle influenced a generation of women and, beginning with a celebrated pinup poster, bewitched a generation of men, died on Thursday in Santa Monica, California, according to Paul Bloch, her spokesman. She was 62 and had been battling cancer since late 2006.
To an extraordinary degree, that fight was played out in public, generating enormous interest worldwide. Her face, often showing the ravages of her illness, became a tabloid fixture, and updates on her health became staples of television entertainment news.
In May, her cancer battle was chronicled in an NBC primetime documentary, “Farrah’s Story,” some of it shot on home video. An estimated 9 million people viewed it. Ms. Fawcett had initiated the project with a friend and producer, Alana Stewart, after she first learned of her cancer.
CYBERJAYA (June 8, 2009) : Former prime minister, Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad was conferred with an Honorary Doctorate of Humanity by Limkokwing University of Creative Technology (LUCT) today as tribute to his vision and achievements in transforming Malaysia during his 22 years of premiership.
“To talk about Tun Dr Mahathir is easy. There is so much that he has done. His footprints are literally everywhere in this country. You will also find his footprints in other countries,” said the university’s founder-president Prof Emeritus Tan Sri Dr Lim Kok Wing at the conferment ceremony.
“But to pay tribute to such an extraordinary person calls for more than an extraordinary effort.”
In crediting Mahathir for being instrumental in the liberalisation of private education, Lim said it was the catalyst that enabled Malaysia to become a regional hub of education, leading to the university becoming a globalised player in tertiary education.
Mahathir was one of three icons conferred with the doctorate by the university. Other recipients were former South African president Nelson Mandela in June 2008 and former Botswana president Dr Festus G. Mogae in February 2008.
Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Abdul Razak was conferred the Honorary Doctorate of Social Transformation in April 2008.
