Michael Teoh: AYA Awards 2008


What's next from Michael Teoh? This guy here is my brother. That's why you have Michael Teoh and Jackson Teoh. Combine both names and you have Michael Jackson. :P

He is now involved in the AYA Awards, battling for Malaysia's Most Outstanding Youth.
Qualified into the top 7 in Malaysia. However, he doesn't really have any weapons to battle at this point of the competition. He has to depend on people like me and you to cast a vote or two. :)

As his brother, let me express how proud I am and how thankful I am towards him setting such a high benchmark for me to beat. Hehe. Don't worry bro, I'll be there. Hehe.

He has achieved so much within 2 years in New Zealand. Despite being a foreigner in a land not well-known to him, he forged a path that has been going on and I hope that it will continue to widen as I get there. Hehe. Always new heights bro, always new heights.

During his first 3 months in New Zealand, he competed agianst other champions from other countries in SIFE 2007.

After that he entered another competition: Deloitte Case Competition 2008.

And then, he went for HPAIR by Harvard 2008. The only Malaysian-New Zealand guy to be there.

And then back to International SIFE Competition 2008.

The are many others, but I can't find for the pictures... so... yeah...

I voted for him of course. What else can a brother do? :P
All I did was:
Type: AYA(space)Y(space)4
Send to:
36828

That's all, bro.
I hope you will bring glory to us, Penangites. :)

Warriors Orochi 2 with a Little bit of Dynasty Warriors 6

Just finished my add maths Gerak Gempur test (What my bro and I love to call: Gerak Gedempur).
Why? Because it sounds fat and funny. :P

Anyhow, this post is nothing about advertisements, eventhough it is like a promotion for a certain game: Warriors Orochi 2!

Great game as they merged the Chineses' and Japaneses' most famous histories into one.

The Chinese warriors or better known as Dynasty Warriors brings us back to the Three Kingdom period where 3 powerful forces: Wu, Shu and Wei struggle for the land, only to be tricked by Sima Yi, a Wei strategist in forming the Jin Dynasty instead.

While the Japanese warriors, better known as Samurai Warriors brings us back to the Warring States period. When Nobunaga started his attempt to take over the capital till... the time when Tokugawa Ieyasu became the first shogun of Japan.

The Japanese made both games and it is a dream come true for many Warriors' fans when Warriors Orochi was announced. Merging both worlds together with a mystical power forged by Orochi, whom escaped from his otherworldly prison in search for a worthy warrior besides Susano that is. :P

Anyways, when the game first came out, my brother and I sorted out some "look-alikes" throughout the series.

1st, and most obvious: Nobunaga Oda and Cao Cao
Nobunaga Oda (left) is from Samurai Warriors. Cao Cao is from Dynasty Warriors. They just look alike. But based on my opinion, Nobunaga Oda is cooler than Cao Cao. :P No offense.
Note: The name Cao Cao is not pronounced as Cow Cow, but rather Chow Chow.

2nd, cover boys!: Yukimura Sanada and Zhao Yun
Yukimura Sanada (left) from Samurai Warriors and Zhao Yun (right) from Dynasty Warriors. Both are coverboys for respective games and they do look alike. Somehow you just feel that they are a pair. :P
Note: Both Yukimura Sanada and Zhao Yun uses a spear. Not shown here because Yukimura just loves to pose :P

3rd, the Mr. Handsomes: Mitsuhide Akechi and Zhou Yu
Mitsuhide Akechi (left) from Samurai Warriors and Zhou Yu (right) from Dynasty Warriors. Look almost the same. They have long hair. Uses a sword as a weapon. Zhou Yu just looks a little bit like a girl. :P
Note: Mitsuhide Akechi, one of Nobunaga Oda's most trust-worthy and skilled warrior turned out not so "trust-worthy" when he burned Honoji together with Nobunaga Oda down to the ground. Sad thing. The game made his ending very touching though. Nobunaga's last minutes before death, he said, "The Japan under you would be the Japan that I'd love to see". At the ending, Nobunaga's spirit appeared to look at the Japan under Mitsuhide, when Mitsuhide turned around to see his spirit, it is gone (totally fiction) :P

4th, the cute girls: Nene and Xiao Qiao
Nene (left) from Samurai Warriors and Xiao Qiao (right) from Dynasty Warriors. They are cute and they look alike. Well... almost. :P I especially like Nene though, her cutscenes are so cute. :P Xiao Qiao is a little too cute because she's too childish.

5th, the love birds that in the end, falls into despair: Oichi and Diao Chan
Oichi (left) from Samurai Warriors and Diao Chan (right) from Dynasty Warriors. Okay, maybe they don't really look alike. So, I exchanged Diao Chan with her Dynasty Warriors 6 version.
Now, they look alike. :P Oichi whom loves Nagamasa Azai so much had to choose between the love for her brother, Nobunaga Oda or her "to-be-husband-if-everything-is-okay", Nagamasa Azai. During Nobunaga's conquest to the capital, he had to face the Asakura army which has Nagamasa Azai in it. At last... Oichi had to suffer the consequences when Nagamasa died in the battlefield against her own brother. So sad...

As for Diao Chan. Dong Zhuo loves her, Lu Bu loves her, she loves Lu Bu. At last, Dong Zhuo is killed by Lu Bu, but Lu Bu was captured by the Wei army in Xia Pi. He tried to offer his service to the Wei army (Imagine how powerful Wei will be with the most powerful warrior by their side). Cao Cao did not believe him with his records of killing both his previous commmanders. At last... he was beheaded. Sad for Diao Chan...

Next: the same weapons.

1st, bow and arrows (girls): Ina, Yue Ying (DW6) and Sun Shang Xiang (DW6)
Ina (left) from Samurai Warriors. Yue Ying (middle) and Sun Shang Xiang (right) from Dynasty Warriors. All three of them are using bow and arrows. The other 2: Huang Zhong and Xiahou Yuan are not included eventhough they use bow and arrows because there are no guys in Samurai Warriors that use bow and arrows! :P

2nd, fans fans fans!!: Mitsunari Ishida, Zhuge Liang and Sima Yi.
Mitsunari Ishida (left) from Samurai Warriors. Zhuge Liang and SimaYi (middle and right) from Dynasty Warriors. All are strategists. All uses a fan as a weapon in the game. I did not include Takeda Shingen because I can't find for his picture. :P

3rd, Most powerful warriors of their time: Lu Bu, Meada Keiji and Tadakatsu Honda.
Lu Bu (left) from Dynasty Warriors. Maeda Keiji (middle) and Tadakatsu Honda (right) from Samurai Warriors. All are among the most powerful characters in the Warriors series (besides Orochi). All of them uses a spear as a weapon.

That's all for this long post of mine.
Blog next time. :P

Dynasty Warriors 6: Now Available on PlayStation 2

This is the newest advertisement that I've made since the past few months.
Dynasty Warriors 6 is available on the PS3 in it's early days.

It is my dream to play Dynasty Warriors 6, unfortunately, I do not own a PS3. I own a PS2 though. Love it. About 2 weeks ago, I was just streaming through Gamefaqs.com and I typed: Dynasty Warriors and Dynasty Warriors 6 popped up! I went crazy after that.

Then, I saw another very cool game coming out for the PS2, PS3 and the Xbox 360: Gundam Musou 2!! Or the English version: Dynasty Warriors: Gundam 2! Double crazy! Messaged my bro immediately and we're going to rock both the games when they release!

Just purchased Warriors Orochi 2 and Gundam Musou 1. Warriors Orochi is a cool game with the mashing of Dynasty Warriors 5 and Samurai Warriors 2. Played Warriors Orochi 1 with my bro and it was awesome! Total of over 90++ characters! How can we resist?

Gundam Musou 1 released on the PS3 when PS3 made it's debut to the world of electronics. It is also the highest bought game for the PS3 during the first term PS3 was released, defeating the Gundam game released by another company.

Well, both are very cool games. Unfortunately, I can't continue playing or unlocking characters without my brother who is now in New Zealand. So, I have to wait for him to get back to Malaysia. Can't wait!

Currently watching Comedy Inc. while typing this. Some of the jokes are funny and some are okay. Anyhow, I'm going to have another exam next week, it's called 'Gerak Gempur'. It's like an exam that is like an exercise for the real exam: SPM which is exactly a month away. Am I nervous? Not really. SPM is just a brand name to make the exam look important. :P

Anyways, this is the revival of my blog.
Thanks for reading. :)
Drop me an E-Mail if you have any enquiries, deals or partnership. My E-Mail is listed below this post.
Have a nice day!
