Luxurious Loo....

Malaysia is spending RM400k per toilet!!!! There will be 23 of them, *strategically* placed around KL in conjunction with Visit Malayisa Year 2007. The toilets are very *canggih*, fully automated, they can self clean and to use them, RM1.

yes...its very true!!

its very true...we're really obsessed with *EST* (it's true... & We're obsessed.....), another proof to this is Genting's First World Hotel. Its the largest hotel in the world and Guinness World Records is confirming this under "Feats of Engineering for Big Buildings". A total of 6,118 rooms, more by 1000 rooms compared to the previous *champion* MGM Grand Hotel & Casino in Vegas - 5,005 rooms.

In fact the whole of Genting has more than 10,000 rooms (total of 6 hotels)

Doha Double Delight

2 Asian Games gold from squash...Nicol David and Ong Beng Hee, Congratulations!!!

World Number 1, Nicol downed defending Champion Rebecca Chiu of Hong Kong, 9-0, 9-3, 9-3 in 34 minutes. Nicol lost out to Rebecca 4 years ago and now has a sweet revenge.

And defending Champion, Beng Hee downed compatriot, Azlan Iskandar, 5-9, 9-1, 10-9, 9-5 which lasted 73 minutes.

"There is no thought of revenge. It is more about wanting to win that medal. She is a hard player to play and I had to keep her out of her comfort zone.
"It was a good match and I feel really ecstatic. It was the last day of the last tournament of the year and there was so much pressure on both girls leading into the game. It has been a great year and a great way to finish off by winning here."

The toll rates are out!!!

Do you believe it?! An increase of 30 sens to RM1. And at LDP, the rates are up by 60 sens and KESAS up 70 sens..thank god, I don't use the highway frequent!!

Interesting Map

Interesting map....thanks to Carol....

NKOTB's Merry, Merry Christmas Album

I'm looking for NKOTB's Merry, Merry Christmas Album, anybody has got a copy, to sell or loan (then i can rip them to MP3s). Originally released in 1989.

Colleagues or friends?

Caught an episode of *House* last night on AXN, it was about a lesbian pair, one of them wanted to break up and was ill that she couldn't sleep for 10 days....however that part did not catch my attention!! it was more on Cameron and Foreman *side* story...Cameron accused Foreman of stealing her report on some research...she put the report on House's table 3 months earlier and Foreman got his on his table just 2 weeks ago and got sign off or something by House...a twist in the situation led Cameron thinking and approach Foreman at the end (of the episode) to make up and said they should apologize to each other blah blah blah....and here comes the best part...Foreman's reply -

10 years from now, when meet up at a church or at a convention (a long this line lah...can't remember exactly!!) we're just gonna shake hands, give a hug thats all...we're just colleagues not friends!!!

So what are you, a colleague? or a friend?

heart attack

I'm getting a heart attack...yet another lost at home to Derby 0-1...while they are flying high second in the championship, we're lying in the relegation zone...and Mr Wise is confident that we'll dig out of this!!! I sure hope he's right...

It's true...

It's true, we're really *obsessed* with *est* (see we're obsessed.....), and i can verify this again...this time we want to build an even LONGER forest canopy walk in the world!! we've already got the LONGEST one in Pahang, at the National Park. The new one which is near Kenyir Lake, Terengganu will be 400 meters longer than the National Park one. And it costs RM5 million to build. Its cofirmed! We're an obsessed lot....

My Fav plane...the Voight F4U Corsair...

The Voight F4U Corsair is a classic plane designed with an outsized propeller and "bent" wings that makes it AWESOME. With the huge 2,804 cubic inch (46 liter) Double Wasp air-cooled radial engine developing 1,850 hp (1,380.6 kW), the only way to convert that kind of horsepower efficiently into thrust was with a huge Hamilton Standard Hydromatic, 3 blade prop which measured 13 feet 4 inches (4.06 meters) in diameter. It was first launched in 1st May 1940.

And how was I introduced to this plane..a classic television series back in the 70's called Baa Baa Black Sheep starring Robert Conrad as Major Greg "Pappy" Boyington and his World War II Black Sheep Squadron.

a home draw....

Leeds drew at home...a 2-2 Yorkshire derby with Barnsley. According to Mr Wise, we could have won but couldn't convert those chances...and who saved the day? The loan duo Kandol and Ehiogu. Well Mr Wise seems optimistic towards the coming games...we'll have to see...
