Local Aviation Companies

This is interesting!!!! After MSS, now MAS is going to increase prices of Economy Class by 15% & Business Class by 25%, with higher fuel surcharges and adminstration costs reported by TheStar today. So in short, you should have know what is going on with them.

Well...on the other hand. AirAsia is given rights to fly to Xiamen and Shenzhen from Kota Kinabalu. Also reported by TheStar today.

So in short I can see that the double A carrier is gonna dominate the whole of the Malaysia's aviation business. Tony Fernandes is gonna be a very very happy man.

NEW PC Project

Starting September, I'll be building a new PC, I'll probably take 3 months to complete building my PC due to budget constraints. So I'll start off with a 17" Samsung Flat Screen Monitor.

In October, I'll get a 250/320GB Seagate/Maxtor Harddisk, a cheap 450W ATX Casing.

For the Grand Finale, I'll get AMD Athlon 64Bit X2 3800+MHz (AM2), but if the price go further down till that time, I'll get myself a AMD Athlon 64Bit X2 4200+ MHz (AM2). For the motherboard, I'll just get a normal/cheap one with 4 ram lots, doesn't have to be SLI/Crossfire ready, but who knows, maybe till November, price for a SLI/Crossfire motherboard will be at an acceptable level. A cheap 256mb PCI-E card and 1GB Ram.

And I'll get all this below $2000.

Handphone Nowadays

Handphones nowadays are getting smaller and more feature packed. Unlike the old days of the BRICK, modern handphones comes with camera, mp3s, BlueTooth, memory cards and tons of other features which I don't know. Unlike in the late 1980s, HPs those days can kill a man, imagine using a Motorola's Brick and knocking it on the head of your enemy. HPs used to weight a few KGs compare to now, less then 100gms. I really have to salute the inventors/innovators of modern HPs. Thanks to them, smaller, features packed HPs are made available to us. And THANKS to them, our wallet are getting thinner.

In the early days, you'll have to pay up to 10-20 thousands just to own one. Now you can get a basic phones for less then $200. I don't know how much I've spent on buying handphones. I don't even quite remember how many handphones I've owned. Now let me try to list them out in chronological order.

Ericsson(forgot what model) => Motorola 8700 => Startec 90 => Nokia 8810 => Nokia 8210 => Nokia 8250 => Startec X => SE T600 => SE K700i => HP RW6828

Up till now, I've already owned 10 handsets since 1998. Which makes me using 1.25 handsets per year. The prices of the phones are not cheap when they are still consider new. Sometimes spending some thousands dollars on one phone. Till today, the value of the phones that I've owned are of no value but a bunch of unrecyclable junks.

So I've a conculsion, from today onwards, I'll never buy any phones above $700 anymore. So I'll have to wait until K750i or K800i to drop until below $700 before I buy them (^^)


I've finally made my first purchase online after so many years surfing the Internet. Now, when I filled in Internet Surveys, I can say that I've purchase something from the Web before.

You know lar, there's a first time to everything. (^^)

Stupidity at its finest

Kung fu fan tries to stop train(China Daily)Updated: 2006-06-03 09:06

A 17-year-old boy surnamed Liang almost died when he tried to use a kung fu movement to stop a running train in Laibin Railway Station in South China's Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region on Tuesday, Nanguo Jinbao reported.

Liang was pushed to safety by a railway policeman just as he was about to be knocked down. Liang jumped down to the tracks and wanted to use Xianglongshibazhang, a famous kung fu posturing described in many swordsman fictions, to stop the running train.

He was taken into custody for breaking railway rules and said he wanted to test whether or not he could use kung fu to stop the train. Liang is a great fan of swordsman fiction and has also learnt martial arts.

In this world, there are all sorts of crazy people doing stupid things.
