Story of the Ant & The Grasshopper

This is a good analogy!

Older Version
The Ant works hard in the withering heat all summer, building its house and laying up supplies for the winter.
The Grasshopper thinks the Ant is a fool, and laughs & dances & plays the summer away.
Come winter, the Ant is warm and well fed.
The Grasshopper has no food or shelter so he dies out in the cold.

Modern Version
The Ant works hard in the withering heat all summer, building its house and laying up supplies for the winter.
The Grasshopper thinks the Ant's a fool, and laughs & dances & plays the summer away.
Come winter, the shivering Grasshopper calls a press conference and demands to know why the Ant should be warm and well fed while he is cold and starving.
TV1, TV2 & TV3 show up to provide pictures of the shivering Grasshopper next to a video of the Ant in his comfortable home with a table filled with food.
The majority of the Parliament are stunned by the sharp contrast. How can this poor Grasshopper be allowed to suffer?

KJ stages a demonstration in front of the Ant's house.
Nazri goes on a fast along with other Grasshoppers demanding that Grasshoppers be relocated to warmer climates during winter.
The Government immediately passes a law preventing Ants from working hard in the summer so as to bring about equality of poverty among Ants and Grasshoppers.
Hisham makes 'More Special Reservation' for Grasshoppers in Educational Institutions & in Government Services.
The Ant is fined for failing to share 30% of his food with the Grasshopper.
PM announces that this is part of the NEP. Every ant must not question it.
Many years later...
The Ant has migrated to the US and set up a multi-billion dollar company there.
100s of Grasshoppers still die of starvation despite the 'Special Reservation'.
Losing lot of hard working Ants and feeding the Grasshoppers, Malaysia is still a developing country.
All because the ANTS are still doing their work .............................
I wonder how long can this last..... when all the Ants leave........

Bukit Antarabangsa Land Slide : PM comment.

Taken from TheStar,

Don’t blame others for mishaps, Pak Lah tells Selangor govt

JAKARTA: Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi has hit out at the Selangor Government for apparently trying to wash its hands of the Bukit Antarabangsa landslide tragedy.

The Prime Minister said the Pakatan Rakyat government should accept responsibility and correct any mistakes or weaknesses which have occurred.

“This is not the way to govern – taking credit only for the good things and blaming others for the mishaps.

Danger sign: A tree at the edge of the landslide at Jalan Wangsa 9 in Bukit Antarabangsa was uprooted Thursday, signalling that the soil is still unstable. The flattened bungalows are at the base of the hill while the Impiana Selatan condos can be seen at the bottom right-hand corner. — ABDUL RAHMAN SENIN / The Star

“As the new state administration, they should improve on all aspects and take things in their stride,” he told the Malaysian media here when commenting on claims by Selangor Mentri Besar Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim that a total of 99 risky hillside projects were approved by the previous government.

Abdullah said there was no need for him to teach the present administration how to do their work as they should be fully aware of what was good for the people.

When I read this, I was really amused. Is this how a Prime Minister gives his comment? What do you mean wash hand? PR has done more compared to what BN has done. BN is the one who approve the permits for the constructions, now that it has crashed and killed someone then the responsibility falls to PR? (Who is washing hands here, please don't treat us like 3 year olds.)
PR have so far managed to prevent any loss of life on the land slide and is able to provide proper help to those in need, warn those who are in danger and found the idoits who approve such lousy works. This is what I called responsibility.

So please tell us Mr PM, what has BN done for these people? What have you done, did you even visit the site? Please be a responsible PM for a few more months to come. Bye...
Guys please learn from SK Koh on how NOT to become a SORE LOOSER.....

DR. M Legacy? I think not!

From TheStar,

Mukhriz: I did not call for schools to be closed down

KUALA LUMPUR: Datuk Mukhriz Mahathir has clarified that he did not call for vernacular schools to be closed down.

”I said the system should be one. I don’t think the issue of closing schools arises. That is the last thing I want,” he said when commenting on the flak he received after it was reported on Monday that he had called on the Govern­ment to abolish the vernacular school system to enhance unity among the people and that a single school system was the only way to check racial polarisation.

“The school remains the same physically and it is the system that needs changing where the medium of teaching would eventually be one, which is Bahasa Malaysia, except for Science and Mathematics,” he said, adding that it would include religious schools.

On the Opposition saying that he was trying to win votes, he said there were certain statements that went against BN’s position, such as the issue of ketuanan Melayu.

Many political leaders from the Opposition and Barisan Nasional had hit out at Mukhriz for blaming the vernacular school system as the cause of a polarised Malaysian society.

MCA vice-president Datuk Liow Tiong Lai said the present school system was still the best and such methods had been accepted quite well by all races.

He added that the multi-streaming school system didn’t stop students of various races from mingling together as Malaysians.

“It’s old thinking that the multi-streaming schooling process will cause issues concerning racial unity,” he said.

Deputy Education Minister Datuk Dr Wee Ka Siong said: “Language alone cannot be deemed as the main factor for national unity. It should entail mutual understanding, sincerity and respect among all races.”

Dr Wee also expressed his regret over Mukhriz’s proposal to have a single stream school system and pointed out that many non-Chinese students were studying in Chinese primary schools.

MIC president Datuk Seri S. Samy Vellu said Mukhriz had violated the provisions in the Constitution, which protected the position and rights of vernacular schools.

He said that with Malaysia being a liberal country, he would expect a modern mind and right thinking to prevail.

DAP veteran leader Lim Kit Siang said Mukhriz had committed a seditious offence by questioning one of the four sensitive issues entrenched in the Constitution and he could be disqualified as an MP if convicted.

Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng said; ”It is not right for him to fish for votes to win the Umno Youth Chief seat.”

PAS deputy president Nasaruddin Mat Isa said it was the right of each race to be educated in their mother tongue.

PKR adviser Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim said Mukhriz wanted to appeal to the extreme Malay views to win the Umno election.

This is very saddening. He will never succeed as what his father can do with this kind of mind set. This is the kind of mind set which brings Indonesia down to their knees where all the 'other' races fled the country leaving it in economic paralysis. Mukriz may not be the one after all. KJ may have an advantage, if he knows how to use this opportunity.

Crashed... Who is the cause?

Car which was installed with the video recorder. (Satria GTI Mivec)

Car which was involved and suffered broken bumper. (EG6 VTEC)

Who do u think is the issue? My suspect is EG6 'understeer' hit the GTI on the door while trying to overtake from behind right side on a right turn. Bad move as the GTI have much better torque at corners.

What about Inflation?

Taken from TheStar.
Guan Eng: Petrol prices should be slashed more

PETALING JAYA: DAP secretary-general Lim Guan Eng called on Finance Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak to slash petrol prices to RM1.52 per litre as the international oil price was now below US$50 per barrel.

“This was the price charged at pumps when oil prices were below US$50 per barrel in 2005,” Lim said in a statement on Sunday.

“It is only appropriate, fair and responsible that the Government reduce the price to RM1.52 now instead of waiting for two more weeks,” he said, adding that the reduction would help restore investor and public confidence.

“Instead of paying subsidies, the Government would also save more than RM10bil if prices remained stable,” Lim claimed.

He added that the failure to reduce prices would only raise eyebrows on why prices were increased quickly while lowering prices seemed more difficult.

Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs Minister Datuk Shahrir Samad said on Saturday that fuel prices may drop another 15sen by the end of the month following the decline in global oil prices.
Well said YB Lim, we would totally agree with you on the investor type of relation ship and how this could help our economy. BUT the question is "How is this going to benefit the RAKYAT?" Bringing in more investor would not reduce the issue of inflation. As we all know inflation is the biggest problems in developed country such as Hong Kong and Japan but why it does not really affect European county that badly? Inflation is triggered by the sudden fuel price spike, that s common knowledge. But now that the fuel have gone down following the world trend, have the food and other daily necessity's price gone down too? What is so GREAT that a FEW mega store cut some of the prices? Char kuey tiow is only RM2.30 per plate before the fuel spike (Petrol is RM 1.92), it went up till RM3.00 per plate when the petrol is RM2.70. Now that the petrol has gone down to RM 2.00 per liter, why does the Char Kuey Tiow is still RM3.00 per plate? Reason is simple, why should the traders or hawkers reduce the price? Who is the competition when everyone already raise their price and refuse to go down? What role does EACH state GOV can do to help? Can this be debated in Parliment? Discussion on this is a better choice of debate then all the other stupid "TALK COCK" that we read in the newspaper! How shameful would this be when it was shown on the internet??

Petrol to go down more? What about OTHERS?

Petrol prices likely to come down by another 15 sen
By MAZWIN NIK ANIS (Taken form The Star.

PUTRAJAYA: Malaysians can look forward to another 15 sen cut in fuel price by the end of the month, bringing pump prices to a two-year low of RM1.85 per litre.

The lowest price the people paid for fuel prior to the recent escalating global oil prices was RM1.92 per litre in March 2006 before it was increased to RM2.70 per litre on June 5, this year.

Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs Minister Datuk Shahrir Samad said further reduction was “not impossible” judging from the decline in global prices for the commodity.

“Malaysians can expect good news and pay less for petrol. As it is, consumers have been paying unsubsidised petrol the past few days.

“But the Government will have to continue to subsidise diesel and gas so the money is channelled for these purposes,” he said after attending the ministry’s family day yesterday.

On Nov 18, the Government slashed prices of petrol and diesel by 15sen.

The current pump price for RON97 is RM2 per litre while RON92 is sold at RM1.90 per litre. Diesel is sold at RM1.90 per litre.

Shahrir said while Malaysians were now paying slightly more for fuel than the market price, the additional money paid by consumers went back to the Government’s coffers and did not increase revenue collected by petrol companies or stations.

“Even the Government is not making money from the difference. This is because we have paid RM15bil to date this year in subsidy and there are other things that continue to need subsidy.”

He said the decline in global oil prices reflected weakening in demand, which could also be dangerous as this showed that people were not spending and that economies were weak.

The minister said he had emphasised to traders time and again to bring down the price of goods as reasonably priced goods would create higher demand.

The petrol is no long much a factor, now it is the inflation that the 78sen hike impact which is making the RAKYAT suffer. Since the petrol has gone down, the price of food and other necessity is not down at all. All the hawkers/traders is using the excuse "MY supplier have not cut their price sown!. The supplier will say my tyre price is still not down.... ETC ETC...."EXCUSES".
We must understand that now family is not too big most ly about 3~4 members which is not economical to cook. Eating out side is cheaper, but the impact of the price hike have much burden the RAKYAT where, we have to fork out more to feed our family (NOTE: Salary no increase this year at all). What can the GOV do for us? How to control the price of food and service? How about taking a good look at Singapore where they haveprice controlled ood stall which GOV help to set up and control the price of hawkers food? Think about it :)

Malaysia Gov Cheats?

Taken from TheStar,
Government not paying petrol subsidies

KUALA LUMPUR: The Government has stopped paying petrol subsidies since the beginning of this month due to lower global oil prices, Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs Minister Datuk Shahrir Abdul Samad said.

“The savings on petrol subsidies next year is expected to be more than RM10bil if oil prices remain stable,” he told reporters at the Parliament lobby yesterday.

Shahrir said that at US$65 (RM235) per barrel the Government would not be paying subsidies and that the focus now would be on deciding whether to set a floor price or figuring out a way for the Government to get some income from the sale of petrol.

“Even with petrol retailing at RM2 per litre, we are not paying any subsidy. We have actually arrived at a time when the price can return to RM1.92,” he said.

“In that context, we hope to be able to set a policy to address this when the National Eco­nomic Council meets next. There must be a decision made on what the floor price should be.”

Shahrir said that for six months from September 2001 to February 2002 the Govern­ment had collected taxes from the retail sale of petrol but had stopped that practice since then.

“Earlier announcements of how much the subsidies cost us, even as recent as 2005 or 2006, always included how much we had foregone in terms of taxes.

“We have stopped doing this, however, and just focused on how much subsidy we are paying,” Shahrir said, adding that the Government was now enjoying some revenue due to the difference in the ex-refinery price and the price oil companies sold petrol to station operators.

He added that the revenue being taken now was a form of tax that could max out at 60 sen per litre.

Shahrir also released information on the amount of fuel subsidies paid so far, which have amounted to RM15.57bil as at the end of October.

Fuel subsidies last year cost the Government RM16.18bil.

The fuel subsidies in October amounted to RM610mil, compared with RM2.99bil in May when oil prices peaked at over US$120 (RM432) per barrel.

What the hell are they talking about? See how our beloved sleepy head "EAT HIS OWN WORDS" (Gov will continue to subsidize RM0.30sen NO matter what BULLSHIT). Even more Funnier is "Our Gov STOPPED subsidized and the saving?" What saving? The petrol proces should be below RM1.70 mark.... Our Gov is forcing us to buy at RM2.00 per liter. So our Gov is actually making PROFIT from the RAKYAT. Oi...... U think the Rakyat is stupid ah.... We shall wait for next GE or better still if Pakatan Rakyat can trigger another emergency GE. Then Gov shall see how smart the RAKYAT is NOW! Don't be an Asshole and rip off your Rakyat, WE shall MAKE U PAY! Smarten up! IT is TIME to change the GOV, not change the Rakyat.

PM: Opposition MPs walked away from responsibility?

Taken form the Star,
PM: Opposition MPs walked away from responsibility

KUALA LUMPUR: Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi took Opposition MPs to task their walkout Wednesday yesterday and likened the action to "walking away from responsibility."

He said if they had not walked out, the sitting would have been able to discuss the details of the stimulus package tabled by Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak without the need to adjourn the proceedings this morning to clear confusions that arose.

Dewan Rakyat's proceedings was adjourned for 45 minutes on Wednesday to ease tension after several Opposition MPs raised questions claiming confusion over whether Budget 2009 tabled on Aug 29 or the RM7bil stimulus package introduced Tuesday was approved for second reading.

"The Supplementary Supply Bill is a very important Bill. It details the budget proposal for the year 2009," he told reporters at the parliament lobby.

He said Opposition members appeared to be trying to disturb the proceedings by repeatedly raising points of order despite warnings from Speaker Tan Sri Pandikar Amin Mulia.

Asked about the claim by Opposition members that Najib was "arrogant" for not giving them opportunities to interject to seek clarification, Abdullah said, "I don't think he is arrogant.”

“I think he just wanted to read out quickly the details of the stimulus package."

Asked if there was a need to amend the Supplementary Supply Bill 2009 as demanded by the Opposition, Abdullah said there was no necessity to do so. - Bernama

Who is not responsible now? Does our PM knows how serious is an unclear Budget on our country would affect the economy? Parliment meetings is to discuss the issues. What is the use of Parliment if certain party can BULLDOZER all the way till end of meeting without answering VALID questions? Think Again Please!

Card system mulled to replace fuel rebates

Taken from The Star
Consumer Research and Resource Centre Paul Selva Raj said the fuel rebate system would not be necessary if the subsidy was scrapped and redirected to develop the public transportation system.

“People took the RM625 fuel rebate for granted and did not see the value. They don’t understand that the rebate is only short term,” he said.

This is another stupid and contradicting statement from GOV ppl, if this rebate is for temporary why do Abdullah Badawi raise the petrol ~40% and induce so much hardship to the ppl? Just for a "TEMPORARY" issue, we are all in deep shit with economic crumbled and INFLATION soars. IDIOT!

I do not think the GOV dared to cancel the rebate as the ppl will scream "NOT FAIR". The fuel price caused hardship to every one and only the road tax renewal date is affection the pay out... But what about those hardcore poor who do not even own motorclycle, let alone car? IDIOT again?

Second astronaut plan may be reviewed. WHAT?

Taken from the Star:
PETALING JAYA: A review seems likely of the plan to send the country's second astronaut into space in 2011 or 2012 in view of the uncertain global economy.
Deputy Science, Technology and Innovation Minister Fadhillah Yusof said on Monday that priority had to be given to more important programmes in view of the current economic situation.
Major Dr Faiz Khaleed, the candidate to make the space trip, would continue to attend the scheduled training sessions to create awareness and kindle the interest of young people in science and technology, which was necessary to boost the nation's competitiveness, he told reporters after launching an ISO 26000 seminar on "Guidance on Social Responsibility: Impact on Trade and Social Development in South-East Asia".

Please tell me how this can benefit us? Last time we ate Roti Canai in space. Now what? Make Roti Canai in space. Keep training astronaut means keep taking our taxpayers money. Please invest in something more substantial to develop our country, use the money to improve education 'delivery' (proper school) would be a much better choice. Do not teach our new generation to make roti canai in space unless Malaysia is planning to have 7 or 10 STAR hotel on the Moon. What a joke!

Petrol to CAP at RM1.92? GOV to remove subsidy!

Quote in The Star:
Shahrir, who said the average world crude oil price for October was US$76.40 (RM267.40) per barrel, said the average for November might go below US$70.
“So (if this happens) the price of petrol at the retail level will probably go back to RM1.92 per liter,” he said.
As a cap has been placed on a price of RM1.92 per liter, he said if the world crude oil price goes down even lower than that, the Government could end its fuel subsidy and use the money for other purposes.

Yet again GOV proves to be the not trustworthy. They use the OIL price upscale to justify the petrol price increase and cause so much burden to the Rakyat. They even promised to up hold the RM0.30 subsidy NO MATTER WHAT HAPPEN.
Reading the article in "TheStar" shows that GOV already eating their own words.
Take a GOOD look at Thailand, their fuel prices is not subsidized BUT they have no Tax on car, no road tax, and no TOLL. Can our GOV do that? Ha ha ha ha....
If you want to follow the global fuel price, we the rakyat is not stupid and believe in all to dumb calculation estimate which was shown to us. We just need to take a glance at Thailand Petrol price..... WE are SMART but not power yet, wait till the next Election! We will show u. Els; please smarten up or change your line up. M'sia GOV is OBSOLETE!

Innocent Person release?

Political analyst Abdul Razak Baginda walked out a free man from the High Court here after two years of standing trial for abetment in the murder of Mongolian Altantuya Shaariibuu.

I am not surprised at all!..... If someone did not do it then why punish this person? But this does not make this person a victim. This person admitted to have relationship with the REAL victim (already dead la...). In LAW; this person is guilty but not amounting to murder! Thank GOD that this person's family does not loose a family member in such a stupid way. Initially he claims that he is the one who have a sex relationship with the REAL victim. So is he telling the truth?........ Where is the evidence? Court has rule that is NOT true. All Bullshit!

If this person did not do it, WHO DID? The fact is the women have died (murdered) and some one blew her up. Nothing can change that. Do we know why she was blown up? I am so stupid that I DO not know. Any way.... we should expect "CASE CLOSE ALREADY?"......

PEtrol to go down 15 sen again. So What!

This dumb..... Oil per barrel price is lower than it was 6 months ago. Six months ago we pay RM1.92 per liter but now we have to pay RM2.15, which is higher......WHY?
Did our GOV subsidize us RM0.30 per liter? OR we actually subsidize them back?
But there is no point at all even if the petrol would return to 1.92, all the other necessity (food) have already gone up.... Who is going to help the rakyat to bring it down? HOW?
Raising the cost of living by more than 30% over a THREE months period is the most numbskull mistake that a "Leader" can make to his/her country. Thank GOD this is not going to be prolonged as the replacement is on the way up. The rakyat will make sure of that in every other elections.

Petrol Price Calculation? We are conned/robbed?

Remember this bull shit?

At that time they explain 1 barrel is USD 146 (1 barrel is 159 liter), so the calculation begins

Price per liter = 146/159 = 0.918 USD/liter (exchange rate ~ 3.3) = 3.029 Ringgit per liter.
Gov subsidize 0.30 ringgit per liter. Per liter for consumer = 3.3029-0.30 = 2.72 Ringgit per liter.

Ok.... so now the 1 barrel is USD 93 (1 barrel is 159 liter), so the calculation begins

Price per liter = 93/159 = 0.585 USD/liter (exchange rate ~ 3.45 'current') = 2.182 Ringgit per liter.
Gov subsidize 0.30 ringgit per liter. Per liter for consumer "should be" = 2.18 - 0.30 = 1.88 Ringgit per liter.

So why is our petrol price is at 2.45 ringgit per liter? Where is our "57 sen per liter" goes to? (2.45 - 1.88 = 0.57)
Dear ppl please take note.... we are not stupid.... We shall wait till next election... then you will know....

Our current petrol price should be RM2.182 (No need for subsidy also....) If got subsidy it would be RM1.88...... Evil or Very Mad #$%^ SOB

Petrol Price Reduced!

Our Gov announced that the petrol and diesel price have reduced. The petrol was reduced 10sen from MYR2.55 to MYR2.45 this is about 3% reduction.....
I actually did not give a damn even if the petrol price reduce by 50sen........
Our current problem is everything has inflated during the last price hike, so the damage has been done. Traders and businessmen has use that as an excuse to raise the price of necessity (BIG inflation). This has cause hard ship to many of the lower income group; so now robbery, mugging; what every crime imaginable is on the rise. It is simple, we do not see rape cases raise because that has no income value compared to robbery; mugging.......
So now the question is When and How the Gov can control Inflation? Follow Singapore style to have centralize Gov Food stall, Gov developer, Gov market?
Damn you for rising the inflation............

VTEC Engine Oil and Transmission Oil Tips

Saw this on the Forum and i think it is worth to share especially if you have a VTEC engine.

20 Sept 2008 (HCOC Touge Visit)

It has been while since I blog, so this a little something i wanted to share :).
20 Sept 2008 has been a good day for me. For the first time since i crashed my Wira in January 2008, i finally made up my mind to go touge again.

I have officially registered as a member Honda Car Owner's Club (HCOC) on April 2008. I have been quite active in the forum to learn up as much as i can about my car and its engine.
The committee members decided to have a Cameron Trip on 20 Sept 2008. In total we have 6 cars going up the touge (EK9, EG6, EG8, SR4, City VTEC and GRA Accord). To cut the story short, we went up the touge after breakfast. I was ferrying Jeswey (It is an honour :)) and was tailing the City VTEC (Euguene - GRA Driver). He is real good at the corners with very minimum body roll (his car is stock "new"), i can only tail him in straights and was having a lot of body roll. Jes is trying to sleep :O ... but i do not think she did ( i wonder if she is worried). We stopped at Green View for a break. After that we proceed to Kg Raja to have lunch and when to Brincang (I was driving alone this time, Jes goes back to our Ashish's EG6). Edward booked 2 units of "Apartment" (converted top floor of shop house).

From what we can see it is pretty good. It has 3 bedrooms, 1 wash room, 1 bathroom, 1 kitchen (with fridge), 1 main room with dinner table and mahjong table too).
Around 4.30pm, my car SR4 (me, Hawke and his dear wife) and Ashish's EG6 (Ashish and Edward....he he he he he....) return back to Kg. Raja. My best friend Ah Lee who owns an electrical shop there had got our Jagung (I ask him to get us the "AA" grade :)). In total we have 141pcs and i took home 12pcs... On the way from Brinchang to Kg Raja, Hawke (GRA - Pro class) noticed my driving skill can be improved (not that safe la...) and give me some tips and pointers in line to take and to reduce body roll. Once reached my friends shops, we counted the jagung and paid. I decided to stay with my friend and they went back to Brinchang in the EG6. As old friends get together, i finally left Kg. Raja at ~6.10pm. This time I touge alone and is in a hurry too.... I reached the Simpang Pulai exit at ~6.40pm. I overtake every vehicle, (some is kind enough to let me pass, some is not too happy about it (especially a 4WD, dunno it is hilux/x-trail/storm? It does not allow me to overtake and after overtook it, it tried to tailed me. The adrelin rush came and I try to follow Hawke's pointer and it works well. I have better control and was cornering around 80~90kmh. After a few corners, i overtook a bus and i can not see the car anymore :)) For my personal record, straight top speed is 130~110kmh; average speed at corners is 80~100kmh (except the 4~5 sharp ones which needed 3rd gear 50~70kmh). I took special precaution when approaching the spot where i wrecked my Wira..... it is at the Concrete divider area almost near the foot of the hill (end of touge). This time it wasn't raining but i am taking no chances so i take it easy at 50kmh and finally i understand why i crashed.
To make it simple, it is a deceivingly sharp left turn after a long straight. you would not notice during the uphill be cause you are driving up at the left lane and turning right (the radius is much bigger thus the corner is not sharp). But when you are going down hill driving left lane, taking a left corner is really tight when there is a concrete divider, you can not take the right lane if shit happens (you will go into the wall on the right and then into the drains on the left, trust me, I Know!).
So to serve a warning to all: "At Cameron down hill, please pay attention and drive slowly once you see the concrete divider. Pay attention to the sharp left corner which is almost took my life".
I have gotten my confidence back, I will be driving again :P!.... See ya....
(Hawke: Thanks for the pointers, if have the chance i will meet you guys more or join the GRA...) To all HCOC members, thanks for coming and teaching me a lot of good things.
Note: Please don't flame me..... i am still not really good yet and not really fast yet......

2) Install a better suspension... this time i will buy my own and make sure it is new (with 1 year warranty). No more 2nd hand stuff :)

(Think about it.. When can you have so much fun.. while the petrol is still subsidized go ahead :P. Not sure when we will have Malaysia petrol = USA petrol). I do wonder where is our Billions of ringgit Petronas profit goes to?

A True Story of Trusting a new Friend

Simple word of wisdom having friend is important. However if money is involved; there is reason to be caution. Trust with caution especially if there is any link to $$ of you may lose a friend quite easily thru misunderstanding or miscommunication. :P.

Old School Alfa Romeo.

Project SR4 Update 8April2008

Driving near 70kmh without windscreen is NOT fun especially you start to see rain clouds forming :P. Finally I manage to get my ride to install the windscreens, carpet, seat....

I took the opportunity to add SIKA sound damping to the roof, now the cabin noise noticely is much lower compared to before. (Good stuff and comparable to the relatively more expensive Dynamat). Next update will be on requied accesories.

Due to unforseen circumstances, the car is not ready for collection yet as the worker who is supposed to assemble the car took early leave due to emergency. So i have to postpone the plan today and cancel the leave. It is ok for me cuz there is an issue at work which i know i needed to be there, so off to work for me today :).

Project SR4 Update 1April08

The engine bay has been painted, i would say quite neat as they did not remove the engine but able to paint most metal of the areas properly. Top coat Glasurit has been applied check out the shine :) NOTE: This is the effect BEFORE polish. I will update after polish effect too :).
Note: I can see my self in the bumper reflection. Checkout the rain water flow area (between windshield and engine), it is fully painted, this is Quality workmanship.
