World's Greatest Shave

Sorry for the lack of updates recently, people. I'm kinda busy and the internet connection isn't working at my place.

Anyway, I am going to write something today. :)

Why are there sitting outside the engineering building?

I know today, there's an event going on. So, I purposely rushed back to uni earlier after lunch to witness the event. Can you guess what's that?

It's the World's Greatest Shave today! I have actually seen the posters all around the engineering building.

Be brave and shave!

What's that you might ask. It's all about shaving your head to raise funds for the Leukemia Foundation.

Waiting patiently for their heads to get shaved!

There's people walking around to get donation while these people getting their head shaved. All the money will go to the patients and families living with leukaemias, lymphomas, myeloma and related blood disorders.

All done.

The World's Greatest Shave is one of the biggest fund raising project across the country (Australia). About 100,000 people participate in this event.

"Can I have a look at the mirror?"

It's actually a challenge to have your head shaved. Some of the people just couldn't take it but there are people willing to shave off their head just to raise funds for charity. I salute those who are brave enough to shave off their head.

You look cool, mate!

Anyone is welcome to participate in this event. Even if you don't shave, you can colour your hair. If not, you can...

Do something like this guy did.

wax your legs! Some guys even waxed their chest which I didn't manage to witness. I know why they had their head shaved but, colouring their hair and waxing their legs and chest? Can anyone tell me why?

Anyway, good job to these guys. I was just not mentally prepared for this. If not, I would have my head shaved off as well. One, I can do this for charity. Two, I can get a free hair cut! How nice right? ;)

Wow, Kok, all that's missing is the picture of you having your head shaved. Like you said, free haircut ma, so why not? ;)

The leg waxing looks reeeaaaal painful... Ouch.

Eewwwww.... guys waxing their legs? Shaven heads are fine. Guys can look quite sexy with their bald heads. So are guys with ponytails...! :D

wonda said...

If you ever shaved your head for a good cause, don't forget to post your photo, ok?

Kok said...

kenny: I'm not mentally prepared leh. Some more, I have class after that. Better don't. :P

Yea, actually quite disgusting for the leg waxing. haha!

dancing queen: For charity mah. haha! Guys with ponytail? Alright, you can see me with ponytail. I don't know whether I will cut my hair for the entire year. It's way too expensive to have a hair cut here. hehe.

xiu long bao: If I have more time to think about it, I might have my hair shaved. Yea, hair cut here is sooo expensive. My friend even cut his hair himself. :P

wonda: Err, I don't know when I'll shave my head. Maybe I will but my mama told me it's not nice leh. I have several times wanted to shave my head. Just because my mum said not nice, then, I didn't.

I agree some bald men are sexy but bald women is complete no-no. Think Sinear O'Connor and Britney S. BTW, did any women go for it or was it just for men thing?

wmw said...

I'm back! I thought you were going to end the post with a pic of you, having shaved your head! Ha ha...

Kok said...

mum in miri: Bald women really cannot make it leh. Like you said, Britney Spears, she looks like those army. haha! Hmm, I didn't witness the event till the end cause I had something to do. But before I left, there's still no girl did that. I think no courage.

wmw: Welcome back, wmw! Having fun eh?:P No no! I still not yet prepare for that. haha!

I prefer hairless guys. Hair-free guys. I mean bodily hair. Not the hair on the head. Looks cleaner marrr.. hehe.

Kok said...

lynnx01,
Like that one meh? Then I don't think you'll prefer ang moh as your future hubby. They are hairy!:P

Kenny Mah said...

I wonder how many guys would be willing to shave/wax themselves to appease their future partners? Me? I don't think so unless it doesn't hurt... Which by the looks of the pictures, oh ho ho... :P

Kok said...

kenny mah,
I don't think I'll have the courage to wax though. Like you said, OUCHHHH! :P
