54 days later

April 26, 2008 in MDG Drama

I was feeling a little like the old man who hung himself in Shawshank Redemption. I was starting to wonder if i actually remember how to handle a mouse and how to reply to an sms (huh, handphone? what handphone?) properly.

The emotions I was having were so mixed up it makes rojak sound like the most orderly thing ever. I was feeling sooo… cheesinomous (adj. Okay. I actually don’t know what it means but that’s is exactly what it means. Just a word i coined to express the inexplicable nature of something… uhm, hard to explain. Please jot the new vocab down in your exercise book, thank you very much).

I’ve been thinking what to blog actually. Definitely not something sensitive. Most definitely not something insensitive. Cheesus Crust. If i really do blog about everything that has happened and what i have felt during the cheesinomous 54 days, i can guarantee your mouse is going to die a horrible death of exhaustion due to excessive scrolling.

Give me a couple of days (longer than that, maybe, connection sucks) to watch the video clips (isn’t that ironic? we’re what’s in the show yet we’re the last to know what they actually show in the alternate reality) and let me see what kind of person i actually am, THEN i will decide if i want to write about anything at all.

Okay. Some friends have suggested I should have self-defended for any sort of rumors and baseless accusations that people have thrown callously at me. But i think for now thats the last thing i want to do. You see, you explain something, they counter back, and they expect you to bite their flame bait so that it may satisfy their desire for senseless sniping. If you don’t, they think you admit defeat. And if you do, they will come up something else for you to stress yourself over.

You don’t find it tiring meh? I do lo.


One thing though.


Regarding comment moderation. Please. I hope you actually watched enough episodes to realize that there was no cheesing internet in the house. How could you just so impetuously come to the conclusion that *i* was the one who deleted the comments. It’s blatantly obvious that for the past whole month, i had nocheesingideawhatsoever what was happening on my own blog. Even if i did have 5 minutes online i wouldn’t spend it deleting your comments. Sorry for the shocking revelation of the day. Undoubtedly it could have been done more tastefully and i apologize for not taking it into consideration before i joined the show. But please, stop scolding ME for deleting your comments.


Sekian terima kasih.


Sigh. I’m so tired. I’m dying to blog about something that actually makes me happy.


I was happy.

I was so happy.

I was so very very happy.

Reminiscing it makes me happy already. 🙂

  29. May Zhee says:

    Ya la Cheesie, do this also die do that also die. Sometimes you just cannot win with the public.

  30. JuNjUn17 says:

    aisay, tot u could win. anywaya, a top 6 finish is an achievement?im sure da votes were not wasted~

  31. Penny says:

    Ringo… Well if I were you I definately gonna feel back being eliminated at this stage cos it’s just another step and you’ll be in the top 3… But then again, it’s not that bad afterall cos 3 person were eliminated at the same time instead of 1 which will make the situation more pathetic… anyway see you on tuesday k?

  32. -april- says:

  36. serena says:

  37. Nad says:

    You are so different from your personality on MDG. I think you are hiding behind your computer and trying to portray a side of you that is unreal.

  38. sunflower says:

    The sun, moon & stars shineth again in Cheeserland!

  39. Julia says:

    yahooooooooooooooooooo…..no more discussions!!!

  47. AEP says:

    MDG is an eye opener to your real selfish personality that you could hide behind a computer but not in real life. From a supporter of yours, you totally loss me towards the middle to end….
    I really could not believe how selfish you could be…

  48. Enrico says:

    AEP, what is ur problems?

  49. lynn says:

    aiyo, why still got irritating fly around, just ignore her, she’s testing ur patience.
    the fact that she keeps coming back means you win already.

  50. hebe says:

    only important people get hate comments haha ~ *wink wink*

  51. Ellone says:

    I bet you really got alot of things to write coz tooooo many stories about you around the net. Even i got tired reading already…. T,T

  52. sutheshkumar says:

    hey ringo,

    i just realised tht you dropped by my blog.;)
    as you have noticed, my post about you compared to the other girls are a bit harsh. allow me to clarify myself that what i wrote about you are purely on the competition purpose and nothing personal. Although my comments on your pictures are harsh, but personally I find you very bubbly and approachable.

    sorry if any remarks from me hurt your feelings. still friends? 😉

  53. Jackson says:

    Wow 54th comment on 54 days later. Cheer up cheesie ^^. Don’t worry too much about not making top 3. You’re still no 1 for your cheesie supporters^^

  54. Juney says:

  60. angelnot says:

    “your blog is like your home, don’t invite anyone angry to tea”

  61. li jen says:

    yes! ringo’s back to blogging…blog abt yr MDG experience kays~? =)

  62. Renka says:

    Cheer up girl… it must be tough for you for the past 54 days.. must be missing your family members and Cheedie alot…
    my two cents – we cant stop what people comment or think about us… as long as your love ones know who you are…. the rest just ignore it….
    really looking forward to your latest update 🙂

  63. Kim Ong says:

    Babe, they’re selling the show. They’ll find something to pinpoint and all that. That’s what makes the show. At the end of the day, your readers know you better than you’re you on TV – because you’re not meant to be the real you on TV / reality TV on Internet or whatsoever. They might portray a different you. You being true to yourself is all that matters. I totally understand how you feel, from one who comes from a reality show previously.

    Take this as a good learning experience abt the entertainment industry, and you’ll get further just being a blogger, coz you can write, you have great command in English and this is definitely not the end.

    Congrats for coming this far babe… you’ll go even further.

  64. Lin-lynn says:

    Dear Cheesie

    I’m glad to see you back on your blog. I *heart* your blog, and I think it highlights you much much better than MDG ever will, and quite frankly, although I didn’t think you were great as a model, I heart you on Cheeserland. So please keep blogging when you feel like it again. Anyway, I don’t think MDG is a real stepping stone to anything great, so I don’t think you missed out on much, like Jean.

    Hope there are no hard feelings on the contents of my blog.

  65. here says:

    i find it amusing how so many ppl gave bad comments on you on their blogs while u were in mdg and now sucking up to u.
    sigh.anyhow, you have a very pretty face and all the best in whatever you decide to do in the future.

  66. 5aday says:

    Ringo, I say this for the sake of your health and not for anything else. You have an anorexic BMI and need to put on weight!! It was no wonder you could not carry those dresses, because they were carrying you!

  67. sugar says:

    Welcome back, Ringo.
    Looking back, it was so surreal as a dream wasnt it? Certainly it was a life experience. From the beginning it was already hard for you, we all see and understand that. But it was fabulous you came this far. The best part is, you discovered more sides of yourself that you didnt know existed, right?
    Love, sugar.
    ps: our hair used to be of the same length, now too! ha!

  68. m@nda says:

    It’s rather ironic how I don’t consider MDG to be a very good production but am still watching every single episode. Anyway, I think you’re great for keeping your cool throughout the show and being diplomatic. 🙂 It’s nice to see you on the show.

  69. jolyn says:

    cheer up.. eat more cheese… be more cheeseeen….
    so sad to see ur all gloomy… =(

  70. scoobz says:

    Welcome back Ringo!

    Look on the bright side. Although you didn’t make it into the finals of MDG, you gained more traffic, new loyal readers who had never previously heard of your blog, and new friends! 🙂

  71. Smokin' Aces says:

    AEP got shot down for making a comment… ha!ha!
    its like walking into a lynching… didn’t someone ask the “haters” to make comments when Ringo is back to defend herself…. haih!!!

  72. hey girl.. cheer up kay? Being in a reality show is not fun at all. I had another fren who was in another reality show… Malaysia’s Most Beautiful or something like that….
    She told me the whole story and how they edited the shows to make you seem like someone who you really are not.

    Anyways…you have been good in the whole show. No cat fights…:D

  73. puspa says:

    arlo cheesie ….

    the pics of u in london . snapping pictures of the London eye … looks cool

    but i got to say that the ribbon u had on your jacket. looks stupid .
    cause i’m currently studying in london , and i don’t see ppl with a huge ribbon . perhaps only u


  74. KY says:

    The character of Brooks in Shawshank Redemption is a very sad one, but we should get inspired by Andy instead isn’t it?

    The whole comment fiasco is over and done with anyway, you’re right to not taking the baits.

  75. heeeeee says:

    eeeh look gloucester road 😛

    Cheesie: 😀

  76. teohsf says:

    hey cutie pie, you are cool.
