Because being slim does not by default equate to being fit. Yeah, I saw the above advertisement & put aside my admiration to the model, I couldn't stop thinking how (potentially) misleading the ad was.
On another note, Wisegeek has a curious article, "Why are Fashion Models So Thin?". You may want to check it out. Heh.

So I got a $1,288-ticket for a Grandstand Turn 2 for yesterday 2011 Formula 1 Singtel Singapore Grand Prix! (I do wish I could have said it that I was given the ticket in my capacity as a blogger. Alas, that's not the case! Heh.)
Anyway here are some of the photos I snapped:
2. So I did a lot of walking. I came from Gate 1 (Zone 1 - refer to the map below) & I wandered all the way to Zone 4. Hur hur.
3. Here I was at Zone 4 - Padang.
4. And at Zone 4 - Esplanade Outdoor Theatre. Getting ready to watch Bollywood Express performance. Jai Ho!!
5. Then after laughing out loud at Forbidden Broadway hilarious performance (sorry, no pictures. Busy laughing!), I sneaked back to Grandstand Turn 2 & snapped some photos of the race.
6. Yeah, this was another of such photos. Mostly blurrish. I have much to learn. Heh.
7. The 10 planets blazing near Gate 1. Yeah!
8. Some stalls--beside those selling the usual merchandises--had also a game! This man didn't allow me to try, though. Hur hur.
9. Back to Zone 4 - Esplanade Outdoor Theatre for Neal & Massy Trinidad All Stars (Trinidad) performance.
10. Behold Marina Bay Sands - possibly the second best integrated resort after Resorts World Sentosa!
OTHERS (from the official website of Singapore F1 - 2011 Formula 1 Night Race - Singapore Grand Prix):
And the following YouTube clips of Forbidden Broadway will give you the idea why I failed to take any of the photos of its show:

Check out the official website, www.bravotv.com/work-of-art and yes, Leon Lim is indeed featured as one of the contestants. In fact his is the first of the contestants' bios. Heh. All the best for you, Leon!

Again a repeated reference to Price Tag lyric in particular "It's not about the money, money, money" (well, the money IS good, though. Thanks Nuffnang!), I'd like to credit Nuffnang co-founder Ming for the accompanying letter--short, but a nice touch--to the cheque. (And if you google "nuffnang cheque", you'll find out a lot of encouraging posts... And hey, the cheque is indeed real!)
Okay, so I'm an "Exclusive Nuffnanger". (But so can you!!)
An “Exclusive Nuffnanger” is a Nuffnang blogger who has NO advertisements from, mentions of, or links to other ad networks originating from SEA, or any ad networks we deem as competitors on his/her blog.
And I have to admit the benefit of being such an "Exclusive Nuffnanger" is real! Especially with regards to payment term which is 30 days from End of Month Requested. (For me, I requested the payment on 23/07 and I received the cheque dated on 06/09! I don't even have to do any tiresome, very much stressful follow-up like what I experienced when I was an exclusive member of the other competitor, which like Lord Voldermort, That-Other-Competitor-Which-Must-Not-Be-Named!)
Thanks again, Nuffnang!
May you go from strength to strength...

Heh. Cute. Compare the above clip, "Metal Slug in Real Life" with that of the trailer of the video games.
Wikipedia entry on Metal Slug has this to say:
Metal Slug is a series of run and gun video games first released on Neo-Geo arcade machines and game consoles created by SNK. It was also ported to other consoles, such as the Sega Saturn, the PlayStation, the Neo-Geo Pocket Color and more recently, the Game Boy Advance, PlayStation 2, Xbox, Xbox 360 and Nintendo DS. There is also an anthology of the first seven games in the main series (including Metal Slug X) available for the Wii, PlayStation Portable, and PlayStation 2.
Yes. There are a lot of Metal Slug series of the game. Complete list here.
