Thanks to Mai for telling me about Linda keluar di Majalah Hai. Kalo tengok di cover majalah ini, tidak pun dinyatakan ada kisah Linda di dalamnya. So, ada keberangkalian saya tidak akan terbeli majalah ini :)

So, what's new about Linda? Tidak berhenti-henti gosip pasal Linda kahwin dengan seorang Datuk. Sebagai seorang peminat, saya sendiri sudah muak dengan gosip ini, apatah lagi empunya badan. Patutlah Linda menghilang begitu lama. Selain sakit, saya rasa dia juga melarikan diri dari gosip itu. Sampai bilalah gosip kahwin ini akan diperkatakan. I want something new from her beside that wild gossip. Her career, her shows, her activities and so on. Well, it's good to know that she's back in the industry.

Saya difahamkan, Linda baru saja selesai menjayakan show di Shangri-la Tanjung Aru Hotel. It's a good start. I wish her success always!

oh by the way, Linda cakap "ada sekumpulan peminat menjejaki dia sampai ke Ranau". Siapakah gerangan mereka ini? :D

Yeah, right. The Chong's sisters won the first leg of the race and each won a Nokia N95 handphone! I hope they continue their good teamwork and will cruise to the next leg. Nobody has been eliminated in this race as the last team to arrive, Edwin & Monica was given a chance as it was the first non-elimination but they were marked for elimination in the next race. They must arrive first or otherwise they will incur a 30 minutes penalty.

Watch them again, Thursday at 9.00pm on AXN!

I have to admit I missed the first few episodes of the Amazing Race season 12. Blamed it to the bad weather. There were no Astro services in my area. AND my streamyx too was a problem! I thought it was only a temporarily until I reported it to '100'. My streamyx restored today - thank goodness!

So, what did I miss? They had eliminated three teams. And they are, (from left to right) Ari & Staella, Kat & Pat and Marianna & Juliana.

The remaining teams are :

Azaria & Hendeka, Nathan & Jennifer, Kynt & Vyxsin

Lorena & Jason, Nicolas & Donald, Ronald & Christina

TK & Rachel, Shana & Jennifer

Too bad, I didn't have the chance to get to know the three eliminated teams. But this 12th season of the Amazing Race, I think I'm gonna follow Nicolas & Donald AND Ronald & Christina teams. Why? because the teams each had an elderly team member. I really wanted to see at least an elderly member in a team win the race! Go team Go!

I received an e-mail read as below. Whether it's true or not, I'm just speechless! Just look at the pictures.

"An Indonesian fisherman who feared that he would be killed by tree-like growths covering his body has been given hope of recovery by an American doctor - and Vitamin A. Dede, now 35, baffled medical experts when warty "roots" began growing out of his arms and feet after he cut his knee in a teenage accident."

SHANGHAI, Nov 18 (Reuters) - World number one Roger Federer put on a vintage display to beat Spain's David Ferrer 6-2 6-3 6-2 in securing his fourth Masters Cup title at the season-ending event on Sunday.

Federer's victory at the showcase eight-man tournament put him level with Ilie Nastase and one behind the record of five titles held by Ivan Lendl and Pete Sampras. More here

New Delhi - A man in southern India married a female dog in a traditional Hindu ceremony as an attempt to atone for stoning two other dogs to death -- an act he believes cursed him -- a newspaper reported Tuesday.

P. Selvakumar married the sari-draped former stray named Selvi, chosen by family members and then bathed and clothed for the ceremony Sunday at a Hindu temple in the southern state of Tamil Nadu, the Hindustan Times newspaper said.

Selvakumar, 33, told the paper he had been suffering since he stoned two dogs to death and hung their bodies from a tree 15 years ago.

"After that my legs and hands got paralyzed and I lost hearing in one ear," he said in the report.

The paper said an astrologer had told Selvakumar the wedding was the only way he could cure the maladies. It did not say whether his situation had improved.

Deeply superstitious people in rural India sometimes organize weddings to dogs and other animals, believing it can ward off certain curses.

The paper showed a picture of Selvakumar sitting next to the dog, which was wearing an orange sari and a flower garland.

The paper said the groom and his family then had a feast, while the dog got a bun.

GEMBIRA: Sebahagian daripada 30 murid Sekolah Kebangsaan Green Road, Kuching menunjukkan wang RM50 yang diterima daripada PIBG kerana memperoleh keputusan cemerlang dalam UPSR. Mereka antara murid yang mendapat 5A daripada 138 calon UPSR sekolah itu.

Bertuahnya budak-budak sekarang. Dapat 5A dapat RM50.00! Erm..macam rasuah pulak kan hehehe. Secara positifnya pemberian ganjaran ini adalah untuk memotivasikan budak-budak itu supaya lebih ghairah untuk mencapai keputusan yang cemerlang.

Tahniahlah kepada budak-budak yang telah score 5A. Congrats to Fio juga walaupun tidak dapat A (sigh!) tapi saya masih bangga dengan keputusan yang mengejut itu. Keep it up dear! You'll be in Form One next year. I'll always pray for your success! Give mama a kiss!

To all Malaysians,

I have completed my mission in space successfully. The 12 days in space was the most exciting time of my life. It feels like I was living in a dream. Even now, there are times when I had to pinch myself to remind me of the times that I had been to space. It was such a magical moment! I am definitely going to share as much as possible my experiences with all Malaysians.

I would like to contribute my journey to space to my beloved little brother Sheikh Mustapha Shukor or " Ajil " whom I missed dearly. He has been a great supporter of me. In fact he was my No 1 fan. He gets very excited and thrilled when I was announced as the first Malaysian angkasawan. His room is filled with my pictures and about space showing his much vast interest in these field. He loves to debate with me on every topic from politics to the small petty things in life. Among the 5 brothers, he is the most intelligent, determined and ambitious.. If he would have joined the space programme, he would surely be my strongest competitor. He would probably be the angkasawan and me as his back-up. He even had completed a book on my journey to space which I have yet to read but is with me for my safekeepings. That was his gift to me.

My beloved brother, Ajil

Being in space has changed my perspective in life. Small petty things does not concern me anymore. Space has taught me to look at the bigger picture. I am more concerned of the global problems such as war, world hunger, poverty and pollution. I could see the beauty of God's creation and it touches me spiritually. I encourage everyone from all walks of life to keep our earth green and save our planet. After all, it is our home!

I have done my soul-searching for many many years by going to Afghanistan in 2002 after the war and Cambodia in 2003 for humanitarian aid under MERCY. I have always felt some emptiness inside not knowing what it was. But I have found my inner soul in space. I felt somehow complete while I was in space.

Thank you again to all Malaysians for their Fatihah and prayers to Ajil. He shall always be in my heart. I will continue my role as an angkasawan as I knew that is what he wanted. I am ready to face the world.

"I have found my life in space but lost a life upon return"
My journey to space is for you Ajil!

Dr Sheikh
Angkasawan Negara

Seawal bulan Oktober I was informed that Linda Nanuwil will be featured on EH! magazine. Linda terpilih dalam 20 Anggun dalam EH! yang Anggun 2007. Memang tidak sabar kemunculan majalah ini. Apa yang pasti, saya kongsi berita gembira ini dengan geng yang lain. Muncul November, muncul jugalah majalah ini. Noey, Ritt, TS masing-masing sms bagi tau sudah beli. Argghhh! saya juga yang ketinggalan. Sana sini saya mencari tak kan sudah habis. At last dapat juga akhirnya. Fuhh! lega!

Saya petik dalam majalah mengenai Linda:

Linda Si Cantik dari Sabah ini hanya mengamalkan rutin asas menjaga kesihatan dan kecantikan. Mengamalkan lapan gelas air suam, pengambilan vitamin C, minyak Primerose dan waktu tidur yang ideal mampu mengekalkan kecantikan dan kecergasan tubuh badan.

"Keanggunan gaya bergantung kepada semua perkara; pakaian, aksesori, solekan dan penampilan diri. Namun, bagi memastikan wajah tampak segar bercahaya, saya menitik beratkan solekan mata. Hanya mata yang galak mampu menyerlahkan seri wajah" ungkap Linda yang berpendapat keikhlasan hati, jiwa yang bersih, fikiran yang positif dan menjauhi tekanan antara jaminan kepada identiti diri anggun semula jadi.

Memang anggun bah si Linda ini. Bukan dia sahaja dari Sabah yang terpilih. Marsha dan Yanie pun terpilih sama. So, jangan lupa sesiapa yang berminat dan berkesempatan menyertai Parti 20 Yang anggun 2007 pada 24 November 2007 di Kelab The Ruums, Kuala Lumpur bermula jam 7 hingga 10 malam. Linda pasti ada di sana.
