Nickelodeon has announced the list of nominees for the upcoming Kids’ Choice Awards 2016. As we all know, Kids’ Choice Awards caters for various categories.

However, it’s been made more interesting this year with the nomination of our very own national diver, Pandelela Rinong, for the category of Favorite Asian Sports Star. The Malaysian National Diver is an inspiration to Malaysians, young and old.

To celebrate Pandelela’s nomination for Kids Choice Awards, I’d like to encourage everyone to vote for her so we give her every chance to win. In exchange, Nickelodeon asked her some fun questions about herself and what she thought about her nomination, and here’s what she had to say:

11 random facts about Nickelodeon's Kids Choice Awards

It’s that slime of the year again! Come 12 March, the ultimate celebration of all things kids love – Nickelodeon’s Kids’ Choice Awards will return with massive musical performances, colossal celebs and super-sized (possibly slimy) surprises! The show will premiere in Malaysia on Monday, 14 March at 11.30am and repeat on the same day at 6pm.

In anticipation of the most slime-tastic time of the year for kids around the world, we’ve put together a list of fascinating facts about the Awards. For starters, did you know Nickelodeon’s Kids’ Choice Awards is the only awards show that gives kids the power to vote for their favourites in movies, television, music, sports and much more -- and honours their opinions with a live show filled with the stars they love? As you read on, just remember one thing – it’s kind of a big deal!

1. That time when Nickelodeon’s Kids’ Choice Awards was born. The show concept stemmed from Nickelodeon’s research with kids, which found that kids wanted to feel like they made a difference in the world. Kids wanted to be heard. So in 1986, Nickelodeon created Big Ballot, the first national poll of kids likes and dislikes. The Big Ballot was eventually renamed Nickelodeon’s Kids’ Choice Awards in 1988.

2. That time when there was an actual use with the famed Nickelodeon’s Kids Choice Awards award. The hollow orange blimp figurine handed out at the Awards also functions as a kaleidoscope.

3. That time host legends were created. TV personality Rosie O’Donnell is a Nickelodeon’s Kids’ Choice Awards legend, having hosted the show seven times. Kung Fu Panda star Jack Black comes up as a close second, racking up three stints as host.

4. That time the entire audience was slimed. The first LIVE Awards was held in 1992 and hosted by Paula Abdul. Slime continues to play a BIG role in Nickelodeon’s Kids’ Choice Awards.

5. That time sports stars got slimed too. In addition to winning Favorite Athlete at Nickelodeon’s Kids’ Choice Awards in 2003, skateboarding champion Tony Hawk went for the green - clinched a record – wowed the crowd with a spectacular "World Record Skateboarding Slime Dive," after landing in an 11,000-gallon/41,600-litre tank of Nickelodeon's signature green slime.

6. That time Will Ferrell held the world record for the longest ‘Slip n’ Slime,’ slipping through 200 feet of the green goop at the 2009 Awards.

7. That time Orlando Bloom and Jack Black set the record for the longest sliming, getting showered with green goo for one whole minute at the 2008 Awards.

8. That time we broke all rules and slime was not green! In 2002, multi-platinum recording artist Pink became the first person in the history of the Awards to be slimed with non-green goo. It was pink! This was before David Beckham and his sons Romeo and Cruz were slimed with gold-coloured slime for the first-ever Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Sports Awards in 2014.

9. That time we held a local version of the awards. Since 2008, Nickelodeon Indonesia Kids’ Choice Awards has taken place every year and broadcast live on GlobalTV in Indonesia. Last year, Nickelodeon gave out eight awards, including an Icon of the Year to a special public figure who inspired the children of Indonesia. Syahrini took home this award.

10. That time Justin Timberlake competed in five Burp-Offs, the most at Nickelodeon’s Kids’ Choice Awards. He won the Burp Award twice! !nd we still adore him! We wonder if he’ll continue the legacy with his son.

11. That time when SpongeBob SquarePants became the most decorated sea creature of all time, having won 14 awards to date, with 12 wins for Favorite Cartoon and two wins for Favorite Video Game.

This year’s Nickelodeon’s Kids’ Choice Awards is hosted by The Voice star and country music producer, Blake Shelton. Voting has begun across all platforms and guess what? Our local nominee, Malaysian diver Pandelela is contesting for Favorite Asian Sports Star. Vote for her via or tweet #VotePandelelaMY #KCA

Al Fatihah untuk rakan yang telah pergi

Semalam, kami dikhabarkan berita tentang pemergian kawan sekelas Batrisyia. Arwah menghidap Stevens-Johnson syndrome. Dimasukkan ke hospital pada 23 January 2016. Batrisyia sekelas dengan arwah di sekolah kebangsaan dan sekolah rendah agama. Tiada parents lain yang tahu arwah sakit. Malah keluarganya tidak memberitahu guru sekolah agama. Hanya guru sekolah kebangsaan sahaja yang tahu.

Sebenarnya kesihatan arwah semakin pulih. Kulit di badan pun semakin okay. Tapi menurut cerita ibunya, malam tu arwah diserang demam panas, muntah susu dan tekanan darah menjadi rendah akibat kuman yang telah menyerang paru-paru.

Batrisyia dah banyak melihat kematian sepanjang hampir 8 tahun dia hidup. Jadi, dia dah biasa. Cuma katanya satu kelas sedih bila sedekahkan Al-Fatihah dan Yasin untuk arwah. Batrisyia kata arwah baik orangnya. Kami tak sempat melihat jenazah kerana arwah dikebumikan selepas Asar. Batrisyia pula habis sekolah pukul 6.40 petang. Pergi juga ke rumah arwah untuk berjumpa ibu ayahnya.

Al Fatihah untuk arwah Haziq bin Abdullah Thani.

Mesti sama-sama bertanggungjawab

Masa CNY aritu, kecoh sekejap tentang seorang FB user yang cakap isteri sepatutnya rasa bersalah bila suami pegang penyapu. Siapa yang dah baca entries user tu, mesti tahu la rentetan apa yang jadi.

I completely disagree with her opinion. Baik isteri tu bekerja mahupun suri rumahtangga, suami tetap perlu mainkan peranan. Masa I bekerja, husband banyak tolong buat kerja rumah sebab sama-sama penat. Bila  I dah tak bekerja, dia masih tolong buat kerja rumah. Cuma dia rileks sikit la sebab banyak kerja rumah dah dibereskan waktu siang. Cuma tinggalkan kerja sikit-sikit untuk dia. Do I feel guilty?

Absolutely NOT. What? Hanya kerana seorang isteri tu tak bekerja, tak bermakna suami boleh goyang kaki. Tolong sikit-sikit apa salahnya kan? Kalau sampai tak menolong, tu maknanya isteri tu orang gaji kita. Cuma yang sedihnya, isteri yang macam orang gaji tu tak dibayar gaji bulanan.

Don't start talking about responsibility. Ya, seorang lelaki bertanggungjawab menyediakan keperluan asas dan seorang isteri  kenalah menolong suami mengikut kemampuan kudratnya. Tapi dalam masa yang sama, setiap pihak perlu ada sifat belas ihsan. Hanya kerana lelaki perlu sediakan semuanya, tak bermakna perempuan kena demand. Sama juga sebaliknya. Hanya kerana perempuan nampak macam boleh siapkan semua kerja, tak bermakna keringatnya perlu diperah.

Sama-sama penat kot. Kalau taknak berkongsi tanggungjawab, jangan kahwin. Hehehe.
