When Ads Uses Humor...

Funny Ads that tickle your tummies like a belly full of jelly...

Don't you just love ads that make you think and reflect for a little while?

Happily Ever After...or not?

We tune in to the merry season with our juiciest gossips ...breakups!! Here are a few lovey-dovey ones we WISH they would break up...'cause they're just so happy together, it's annoying!

 TomKat - we thought the odd couple wouldn't last, but they defied the odds...

Brad & Angelina - ah, we thought he'd wake up and go back to Jen, but it's been 5 years and gazillion kids later...

The Beckhams - They've been through rumors of his affairs and her endless control-freak actions, but 3 sons later, they're still proclaiming their love in an intimate interview with Hello! magazine...

Here are a few that we place our bets on that they'll last forever and ever, but broke up this year! (*double shocker*)...

Christina & Jordan Bratman - typical modern day Cinderella story. Popular singer falls for the underdog, got married, had a lovely bouncing baby boy, and now 8 years later...separated!

Ryan Reynolds & Scarlett Johansson - the young beautiful couple called it splits after 2 years of marriage...such  pity, just as Ryan's star is beginning to shine really brightly with the Green Lantern coming up.

Eva Longoria & Tony Parker - the desperate housewife was not desperately clinging on to him when she found out he had an affair. Oh Tony, just when we started to think you're getting into the A-list clique...

Zac Efron & Vanessa Hudgens - What? the High School Musical sweethearts have split after 4 years! Of course, Zac seems to be going places and she's still stuck doing mediocre high school love stories...

Taylor Swift, Finally Off The Market?

The soon to be 21 year old country singer, Taylor Swift has had a pretty rocky year this year in terms of love. Throughout the year, there has been frequent rumors regarding Swift's love life.

First off, there was British actor, Toby Hemingway who appeared in her music video 'Mine'.

Then, there was actor Coby Menteith from Glee.

And now, Jake Gyllenhaal??!!

The two of them have been spotted spending Thanksgiving together with Gyllenhaal's family in Brooklyn.

When Gyllenhaal was confronted by the media, regarding the swirling rumors about a relationship with the young starlet, the 29 year old actor smiled.

Could it be that Taylor Swift has started a new "love story" with Gyllenhaal?

The Big Bang Theory - not nerds after all?

For those of you who follow The Big Bang Theory, you would know that it's the story about a bunch of super-geniuses who fail terribly in the social circles because they're geeks/dorks/nerds/Sheldon. Of course, Penny's the hot one of the bunch, but would you think twice about dating the male cast if you see them out of character and in real life below? Let us know ok?

Howard Wolowitz

 Howard Wolowitz- in real life

How about that huh? Ok let's see another one. The lady shy Dr. Raj Koothrappali in the series...

Alright, the doctor is actor Kunal Nayyar in real life! Not so nerdy after all rite?

 What about the unbearable Dr. Sheldon Cooper, unoffficial group leader and the one who gets on everyone's nerves?

Sheldon in real life...

So smouldering and so-not-sheldon, huh? OK, lastly Dr. Leonard Hoftstadter, with his on-off relationships with Penny and his very cute shy demeanor...

And he's transformed into Johnny Galecki in real life!

No matter how they look like in the series or in real life, we hope the dynamic group will continue to give us laughter and random unknown facts (through Sheldon, of course) throughout the years!

Ads: Engaging & Eye-Catching

Years ago, advertising had always come in the similar fashion of having the same characteristics. Nevertheless, with the changing times, creative heads have gone on to squeeze their brains for more creative ideas to ensure that every advertisement produced is more engaging and if not, more interesting than the last.

One of the ways to accomplish this is by ensuring that the advertisements are not only eye-catching but also relevant to the social context. Few examples of them are as per below:

The Return of Comebacks...Part One

Ever felt like you're in a feisty mood and you just need to come up with an awesome come back for someone else's insult (the traditional "Roll Your Eyes" and the sarcastic "haha you're so funny" is screaming uncool!)? Here are some ideas for your reading pleasure without bringing on the Yo Mama jokes...

"Is that your natural face or did your neck throw up on you?"
- for those who insulted the way you look-

"If brains were taxes, you'd be getting a huge rebate"
- for those who condescendingly implied you are dumb-

"Do you still love nature despite what it's done to you?"
- for those who told you you can't change the way you look-

"If I could rearrange the alphabets, I'd put "F" and "U" together"
- for those who gave you corny pick-up lines like "If I could rearrange the alphabets, I'd put "U" and "I" together"-

"Your kind of face is the kind I used to pay money to watch"
- for those who called you a freakshow-

"There there, it's ok. It's people like you that makes us appreciate beauty like me even more"
- for those who makes you feel like crap-

...and now, for the Le Grande Finale,

How to Dress Like Blair Waldorf

Whenever you are in doubt, or skeptical of your fashion sense; whenever you are headed towards any forms of fashion faux pas; or when you are in need of little bit of fashion education, get yourself locked down for a night in on Friday nights for an episode of Gossip Girl. Queen B and her 'so-called-minions' may just guide you into their whimsical world of fashion donned with exaggerated headbands, bright tights, tailored suits, designer jackets, and the like. Yes, you may also get some pointers from Serena Van der Woodsen, who is said having a style that is inspired by Kate Moss, that is if you like a mixture of boho chic and vintage styles. And yes, we shall not forget Jenny Humphrey, Vanessa Abrams and the oh-so-classy Lily Bass (or should I say Humphrey).
But today, let us study our very first exhibit: Blair Waldorf. The challenge? To incorporate B's styles into the Malaysian environment (so you won't look like you are trying too hard) - be it campus, work, parties, or casual shopping. Just follow these simple rules, and you are own your way to be the B's minions!

1. Headbands, headbands, headbands
If you don't even have these accessories to begin with, don't even think that you can pull of the rest! I personally adore Blair for her signature hair accessories! From big red bows, to bright yellow bands, to exquisite chic pieces, even berets, Blair can definitely make one huge fashion statement!

2. Tights
Yes, it is hot and humid outside, but it is no excuse to not wear a pair of tights or pantyhose if you want to dress like Blair! One thing's for sure: B almost never wears any dresses or skirts, without tights. Tights and pantyhose are cheap. You can get good ones for less than RM30!

3. Dresses and Skirts
In the 3rd Season of Gossip Girl, I notice that Blair loves wearing classy, A-lined pencil-skirts and dresses. I find these pieces clean, simple, and extremely classy. She wears these with tights or bare legs, either way, she goes all the way up on my score chart. You don't need to splurge on designer dresses, you can definitely find affordable ones at Forever 21, Treats, Seed, MNG or even Sungei Wang!

4. Tailored Cuts
Blair is all about being the perfect example of a classy high school queen. In the first two seasons, you may realize how often Blair wears 'uniform-style' tops. Safe and simple, collared tee and blazer matched with a skirt is probably the most appropriate college dressing if you miss wearing your school uniforms.

5. Bright Colors
Blair's styles are always daring and unique and one of it being her continuous experiments with bright, eye-popping colors. So if you want to dress like Blair, make sure that you have too, enjoy experimenting with colors. Wear bright red tights, or yellow headbands but make sure these colors make-up only ten percent of your outfit if you really want to make a statement!

6. Bags
If there is one thing I learnt: Bags are the most important accessories to invest in (apart from shoes)! Do it like Blair, by matching your outfit from super-sized bags (to keep your books and notes) to small pouches.
My favorites are Michelangelo, if you are into splurging, Paris Hilton, and Zara. But you will be fine with Charles & Keith, Pierre Cardin, Vincci Accessories if you want something affordable but that feels and looks like a million ringgit.

7. Coats
Yes yes I know. Serena and the rest of the stars cover themselves in warm, furry coats too, but none of them could pull it off like Blairs does. Malaysia is not exactly the perfect place to show off trendy coats but, hey, there's no harm pushing it jussstt a little, right?

If you have any more ideas on how to "Blair-It-Up" feel free to drop your thoughts and share with us! Till then, I will be keep you posted on the rest of the GG stars!

You know you love me,
