Ban Ki Moon

Named as Forbe’s 41 most powerful people for 2010 is the first South Korean U.N. Secretary General, who has the unenviable job of finessing relations between the organization’s 192 member states. Also: restore world peace, end hunger, genocide and protect 41.2 million refugees and displaced people around globe. The U.N. Refugee Agency has won the Nobel Peace Prize twice and has power to provide immediate emergency assistance to hundreds of thousands of people.  Ban’s other pet causes include climate change and disarmament; hopes to eliminate all nuclear weapons in his lifetime.

In addition to Korean, Mr. Ban speaks English and French.

Wendy Cheng aka Xia Xue

One of Asia’s top blogger who is quite popular because she is brash and brazen – her blog – which is a free blog – claims of thousands of page views and visitors a day.  I don’t know if she needed the help of a web directory initially – but as you can see – she definitely has made something out of herself outta nothing.  Wendy Cheng’s personality is either you love her or hate her – I don’t hate her – but to ask her to tone down – would also be wrong – for she is who she is and shouldn’t change for anyone.  Paid good money for reviews of products and more popular because of her photo shop pictures – Wendy is what i would call a little chili-padi.  Do i wish my daughter to be like her – nah i don’t think so – i prefer her to be sweet Dawn Yang.

Larry Page

Now who don’t know Larry Page must live in a cave.  Anyone who uses the internet knows that he is the co-founder of Google.  Google being the most powerful search engine on the world wide web – who can kill your blogs or let you earn some money with it.  what is Larry Page networth? 15 billion I heard and only 37 yrs of age – married with 1 kid.  Mannn!!  i wanna be him – donch you?

If knowledge is power, maybe information is too. Page met co-founder Sergey Brin in Stanford computer science Ph.D. program, now the brainy duo are trying to put all the world’s information at your fingertips. Combined net worth of $30 billion would place them third on the Forbes 400. Yet despite professed intentions to “do no evil,” Google is blamed in some quarters for decimating traditional publishing.

Lucille Ball

Lucille Ball – I grew up watching her and love her so much!!  my mother used to say that Lucille Ball must know that best acne treatment because one day – she would have something sprouting out on her face and the next – her skin is as smooth as a baby’s bottom – hahaha!  i am guessing that my mom was just jealous of Lucille Ball’s beauty eh.  hahah!

At that time i was still young and all I could think of was the funny acting of the funny actress.  But Lucille Ball is no ordinary actress – she went down in history too.  Born in 1911 – she passed away in 1989 – she is more than just a comedienne – she was in film, television, stage and also a radio actress.  She is probably the most remembered actress in America tv.  Lucille Ball received 13 Emmy and Golden Globe award too – she was definitely an actress of beauty and talent.


Gadgets For The Powerful People

I’m just amused whenever I go on the blog of John Chow and his friends – the amount of Gadgets they have – it’s truly astonishing.  I think most of Chow’s gadgets are sponsored but I’m sure some Iphone accessories he must have bought them himself.  In last week’s edition of his dot.com lifestyle – the above Mifi was the new gadget he has gotten because he was in Las Vegas for a convention.  Like I say – the man amazes me with his gadgets – but I’m guessing all powerful people will have plenty of gadgets – whether they are sponsored or bought – afterall, one can go without their gadgets right?

Katie Couric

Katie Couric is named the 7 most powerful people in new media  by Forbes 2010 and she is the anchor and managing editor of CBS Evening news. Born in 1957, Katie is an American journalist and host a webshow on CBSNews.  She is also the first solo female anchor of weekday evening news program on one of the 3 U.S Broadcast networks.

Coupon Saving Women

About a year ago, I saw on news about these women who cut their grocery shopping budget to half – and showed us all how they did it.  I’m telling you – these women are my real inspiration – I swear I wanna be like them if I could.  Who doesn’t like savings right?  that’s the reason why people like myself look out for Cyber Monday and buy all my gadgets like ipods and monitors at half the original price.  I too never buy gadgets like my a video card or a tv unless they are on sale.  It’s awesome all these savings makes me feel likes guilty about spending money.  What about you?

Working & Single Moms

Single and working moms are to be admired – because I have one too when I was growing up.  But there must be a lot of stress for single and working moms too – because it’s definitely not easy to bring up a few kids and work as well.  Many years ago – when I was a kid – I never could understand why my own mother was so angry all the time – she would be so stressed that she eats to ease away the pain.  We didn’t have weight loss supplements during those days  – so she didn’t feel very beautiful most times.

Now that I’m a mom myself – I can fully understand what she went thru’  – and I’m not even a single mom. My spouse does a lot to help with housework and taking care of our 1 kid.  My mom had 4 kids with no support from her own family nor friends.   Luckily for us – at this time and age – we can go onto the internet for support and find weight loss supplements to help us get back to a better shape and regain our self confidence.  Yes! if you know someone who is a working and single mom  – don’t forget to say a kind word or two to her.  You can also offer to babysit her kids once in a while – and I’m sure that she will really appreciate.

David Cameron

Youngest British prime minister in 198 years is product of privilege: Eton, Brasenose College, Oxford; is descended (illegitimately) from King William IV. Hailed by some as the second coming of Margaret Thatcher, Cameron shares the Iron Lady’s determination to slash government expenditures (defense, higher education), but as the leader of a coalition government he can ill-afford to repeat her brash divisiveness.

He has supported same-sex marriage, wants to improve attitudes towards the disabled and has a far more gentle view of immigration than Count Howard did. All quite odd for a Tory. On the other hand he is a Unionist, wants to avoid the EU and loves war or as he calls it ´spreading democracy.

Doctor Of Philanthropy

Dr Jumpei Yamamura is not just a ordinary doctor who can give you water retemtion remedies , he is an extraordinary person – a doctor who believes above everything else that helping people is most important.  Whether you are a Japanese or not –  whether you are an illegal immigrant – he will help you if you have a health issue.  If only all doctors in the world is like him and not about money and providing a good life for their family.  Dr Yamamura traveled the world to help people from other countries for humanitarian reasons, he is currently back in Japan but his philanthropy work did not stop – he is still helping people in Japan who need medical assistant – even though this has caused a wrath between him and the authorities.  Dr Yamamura is not interested in politics- he doesn’t want to criticize the government health issues – all he wants to do is to help people.
