Downgrade the petrol and increase the price some more!!!
This is called 1 Malaysia wo.... *sad*


KUALA LUMPUR: The newly introduced RON 95 fuel is now priced at RM1.80 - five sen higher than the previous RM1.75.

Meanwhile, RON 97 is upgraded as a premium product and has gone up to RM2.05 from RM1.80.

Microsoft drops price of Xbox 360 Elite, kills Pro

After Sony launched PlayStation 3 *Slim* for USD299...
Today Microsoft decided to slash the price for Xbox 360 Elite to USD299 too...
Starting Friday, the Xbox 360 Elite will be priced at $299, $100 cheaper than its current price. The Xbox 360 Pro, which currently retails for $299 will be priced at $249 starting Friday. Once retailers sell through their entire stock of Xbox 360 Pro units, that SKU will no longer be offered by the hardware maker.
Going forward, Microsoft will offer only the $299 Xbox 360 Elite with its 120GB hard drive, and the $199 Xbox 360 Arcade which comes bundled with five games and a 256MB memory unit.

New 2010 / 2011 Suzuki Swift spyshots

From: TMR The Motor Report

THE CURRENT generation of the Suzuki Swift - available in Australia since 2005 - is reaching the end of its run, and an all-new model is now on the way.
Styling is expected to remain similar to the hugely successful fifth generation Swift, and these new spy photos reveal that development is well underway.
The new Swift is expect to make its debut at the 2010 Paris Motor Show in October next year, with its market debut likely to come in late 2010 or early 2011.
While little of the car’s profile is visible, the heavy cladding down the sides suggests that new styling will appear along the doors and rear quarter panel.
The front of the Swift reveals a little more, with the headlights clearly retaining their current shape, and the area surrounding the grille to take on a hint of the recently revealed 2010 Suzuki Kizashi’s styling.
Still concealed, the side intakes flanking the bottom front intake appear to benefit from a slight update as well.
The sixth generation Swift is expected to be a little larger, and roomier, than the current model.
Little is known about updates to the engine range, although many reports suggest that a diesel engine will be added to the line-up, along with a possible all-wheel-drive system.
A choice of petrol engines is expected to be offered, with output figures ranging from 67kW to 97kW.
Suzuki has sold nearly 60,000 Swifts in Australia, making up nearly 60 percent of the brand’s total sales locally.

Full Tank Mileage on last trip

Went to KL TT last Saturday and return back to Ipoh with one full tank of petrol (about 36 liter).
This time I able to break my previous record of 500km with 11km extra.
Total mileage of my car is 13,000km or 10 months old.
Driving style:
80% Highway 20% City
Ipoh to KL : Steady 90-110kph
KL to Ipoh : 90 - 130kph
I believe it able to achieve more mileage with steady 90-110kph (my leg was itchy sometimes)
Will try to break record next time :P

Schumacher abandon F1 return due to neck injury

It was sad to hear that.... But you are my F1 legend!!!

BERLIN: Former world champion Michael Schumacher has called off plans to return to Formula One racing at the European Grand Prix in Valencia on August 23 due to a neck injury, he announced on his website yesterday.
The 40-year-old German, who won the world title seven times before retiring in 2006, had been primed to replace the injured Felipe Massa in the Ferrari team for the race in Spain and possibily for the rest of the season.
But he injured his neck in a motorcycle accident in February and medical tests showed that he had yet to fully recover.
