Conversation with Richard Madden - Nerd HQ HD

2 of my favorite guys in 1 video?

Guess this is my lucky day.
I never thought the day would come when Chuck would meet the King of the North, Robb Stark.
Richard Madden gets interviewed in NerdHQ’s Conversations for a Cause benefiting Operation Smile.
King of the North looks so charmingly shy and awkward during the interview.  But so endearingly lovable. 
Let me just say that his accent is “to die for”.  And props to the panel for making this a very lively and interesting converstation.
Here are some bits from the panel conversation:
On being Prince Charming:  “It's not a promotion though, I mean I’m down to being a prince.”
On who he would like to have single combat fight with: “I'd like to have a fight with Jon Snow.  I wouldn’t know who would win it.  It would be the best fight and it would be to the death.”
(Someone shouted Geoffrey here but Richard quipped “it wouldn't last long if it was Geoffrey, would it?”)
On who he would like on the Iron Throne:  “A combination of Jon Snow and Danaerys”
On the future of GOT and if there would be any Starks left:  “I can see it as being season 9 and it would just be three dragons.”

Oh, and Richard's real life girlfriend drops by on this video (but we're not really interested in that are we?) 
And not to forget my guy Zachary Levi on giving advise to new struggling artists “Start with theatre.  If you don't love it there, then  you're getting into for the wrong reasons. If you do not like it when you don’t have money... then you’re in it for the wrong reason.
Feast your senses and enjoy the video.

Singapore is so much like Makati -- tall buildings, fast people & talkative Filipino yuppies. Not so much sights but then again, we were there to overspend on pasalubongs and go retail shopping. I don't want to brag, but between here and Manila, Manila wins hands down (on my own standards). :-)

Our hotel was located at Orchard Rd. and it has (thankfully) Starbucks at the groundfloor. We went down one night only to realize that coffee (as with cigarrettes) is so much more pricey there.

Athough, I must say, the air is worth breathing and the streets are super clean. Thank God for countries who respect the rights of non smokers to nice, clean air.

Lingerie, baby steps and women's liberation

If you ever heard the saying "One small step for man, one giant leap for mankind" then you can relate to this post.

In Saudi, a 2006 law banning men from working in female apparel and cosmetic stores has never been implemented due to various conservative groups who are opposed to the idea of women working in common areas visited by men and women, like malls.

Finally, the government has decided to enforce this law effective this month after long standing protests by Saudi women.

Strict Saudi law prohibits mingling of unrelated men and women.

Which kind of makes it awkward for women to be accompanied by male relatives in buying their intimate wear from men behind the counter.

"I and many other women like me were always embarrassed to walk into lingerie shops because men were selling the goods," said Saudi shopper Samar Mohammed.

She said that in the past she often bought the wrong underwear "because I was sensitive about explaining what I wanted to a man."

Just want to share this quote to all the ladies out there: 

A man wears the pants in a relationship but the woman tells the man which pair to put on.
