Mr. T brought boy out of coma

Former The A-Team star Mr. T once stunned a sick child’s family by bringing him out of a coma – after doctors begged the actor for help.

The poorly kid fell unconscious in Detroit, Michigan in the mid-1980s – and the only physical movement he made was in response to hearing Mr. T’s name.

And when the mohawked star was in town, he stopped by the hospital to visit the ill boy – with miraculous results.

He tells Empire magazine, “His family put toys around him and one of them was a Mr. T doll. And whenever my name came up, the boy moved his arm.

“Somebody told the doctors I was in town, so they called me down there. I closed the curtains and prayed. Then, as I was walking down the hall, the kid suddenly came out of the coma and hollered out.

“That was my supernatural moment.”

Turns out… Chuck Norris ain’t got nothin’ on Mr. T.

Hi-Tea at Sheraton

Delectable treats.

Lovely ambience.

Had a lovely hi-tea at the Sheraton Utama Tasek Brasserie yesterday. Along with me was Airbiscuit and several other members of the media. The food was great, and it was a warm and cozy afternoon. Thanks Wena for the invite, and for the great company. And it was also nice to meet you Norizah. I’ll be sure to extend the invite to you for the event on the 12th. 😀

And Then The World Collapses Due to the Infinite Looping


Yeah, I’m still sitting here, holding that pose, a few hours after Jim took it.

Off into the rain.

In what can be considered a spirited match, AM Gunners, led by His Royal Highness Prince Abdul Mateen fought to the last minute, going down to a 2-4 score against Sekolah Sukan. A very entertaining match, with a very entertaining crowd cheering on both teams, meant a very, very entertaining shooting experience despite the light downpour. Most of us braved the rain with plastic bags over our gear to get a good shot of the action. The weather cleared up for the second half, which saw a flurry of goals.

Taken during the DST Women’s Sports Day event at the Balapan last Sunday, which saw the Ministry of Finance team bagging second place overall. Good job team!

Good opportunity in getting to grips with my new TeleConverter. A stress test revealed it might not be able to keep up with fast sports, and I really need to do an AF Fine Tune to get the sharpest image possible. But I’ll learn to work around the shortcomings and make it fit into my style of shooting.

Paradise Found: Kuraman Day Trippin’

Man, Kuraman is like the Venus sculpture. It’s beautiful overall, but looking at it closely reveals imperfections. I’d go back if not for the one hour long ride on a small boat. My whole body was sore from the boat ride, and I think I swallowed too much sea water that I’m still nursing my sore throat.
