Airline war on the F1 grid – AirAsia passengers might get Richard Branson as stewardess!

Yes you read right! Sir Richard Branson of Virgin fame could be serving AirAsia passengers in a stewardess uniform – but only if Lotus F1 beats Virgin Racing in the battle of the newcomers. Lotus F1 chief Tony Fernandes will have to do the same on a Virgin Atlantic flight if the Malaysian backed team loses in the duel!

“He has an airline, we have an airline and if we beat him he can come and work on our airline as a Virgin stewardess. We will make sure that the stewardess outfit is perfect. I suspect that he might ask us to reciprocate. I’ll have to check how fetching his stewardess outfits are but I’d be game to do it while totally confident of winning,” said the Briton.

AirAsia boss Fernandes replied: “Bring it on, the sexier the better. Our passengers will be delighted to be served by a Knight of the Realm. But, knowing Richard, the real challenge will be to prevent him from asking our guests ‘coffee, tea or me?’ That would be scary,” he said.

These two “warring” friends subscribe to the power of publicity, so this challenge comes as no surprise. As much as I want Lotus F1 to do well, Tony Fernandes in a tight skirt would be quite a sight! What do you think?

Big Appetite for Bigger Disk Space

My disk was full! Any other choice I have??

Of course I do, get a new one. Besides, my external hard disk casing supports two disks in a single house and I still have another slot to put in.

I was thinking of getting 1TB when I saw 1.5TB doesn't cost much.

Just got formatted and ready for usage.

Pantun: Kulatku Kudat

Kulat-kulat si paku layu
Layu tidak menghijau segar
Kelat-kelat hatiku sayu
Sayu kerana tinggal terbiar

Segar rumpun indah pandangan
Jauh terbentang luasnya alam
Tidak kupinta kasih balasan
Sekadar hati tidak teridam

Return from the past: High School's Subject - Accounting Principle

I have always hated accounting during lower form and was lucky enough during high school time not to have to take this subject. But as time goes by and when I dealt with so many accounting and investment needs, I can't get away but to feel a little regret not having to learn it during school time, which I would have all the time in the world to study on the subject.

Yes, being a programmer has been my dream for as long as I can remember when I first learnt about computer. But, I have never thought that accounting would play a crucial part of what I am developing about. Now, the subject is the main 'course' in my daily routine to look up into, because my company's primary product is an accounting system.

I may never have dreamt about it, but oddly enough, now I am spending sometime to teach myself accounting principle and got myself high school's book to learn from. I need to catch-up quick as this one doesn't have year end exam, but rather tested everyday by our customers.

Simply an Evening

I love to spend an evening as the sun setting down and the surrounding is getting darker. It brings out the 'inner' you. The peaceful and serenity which I won't find everyday in town I now lived in.

New Wallpaper

It has been sometimes, since I last changed my wallpaper theme. I like blue to match the taskbar and window's theme. So, I would have lagoon's spread or the sky's. On some other occasion, I just put some random picture of my friends. But this time around, my eyes were fixed onto this beautifully taken photo. It displays gradient and giving stress upon life of an object. I like it instantly.

This single pic, costs me USD3.00

Iftar @ Kuala Juru

Sunset at rivermouth, facing Penang Island.
Gravy crabs... Delicious!
Khirwan and his deals.
This drink was ordered an hour earlier.
It was like a movie scene, that when Yukta said that he was to leaving at 7.50 should our food not served, they sent it right up at 7.49 - we had ordered like an hour earlier, but not even our drinks were served! But then, we did enjoyed our crabs....

Memories Back Then - IO's Homestay @ Sedim, Kulim (2005)

I was cleaning my boxes of books and CDs to make sure that they are still good. Well, I do need some more space after all since my collection of books keep on being added from time to time. Then, I found two discs labelled USM (International Office's Homestay 2005). One of the disc was irrecoverable (have lots of pics!) But, still I am glad that one the disc was somehow intact. (To prevent the same 'disaster', I have copied all the files inside the CD into my hard disk.)

Emceeing a final program with Aishah

(At that time, she was my student, now pursuing her masters).

Wet time huh??

Reminiscing my good shape...

Me, Kushairi, Sunny and Jan.

At time, I wished that I had never to leave USM ever again...
