BACKBENCHER’S Club deputy chairman Datuk Bung Moktar Radin has called for Proton to be wound up claiming that the national car maker had embarrassed the nation by trying to pass off a rebadged Mitsubishi Lancer as the Proton Inspira.
Bung Moktar (BN-Kinabatangan) said he could not accept Proton’s excuse that it was too costly to develop its own car to replace the Proton Waja.
“Proton said it would cost RM700mil to produce a new car. If it cannot afford (to design a new model), then just close down.
“Do not embarrass the country. Proton has been doing research and development for years. Don’t tell me that there is no design that can make the people proud,” he said while debating the Budget 2011....

Training session in progress.
It has been a while since I last stayed at Awana, Genting. There is now air-con in the room, there wasn't one the last time I was there. It is getting warmer up in the highlands due to global warming.

I was in Bangkok last week on a short business trip for a project workshop discussion. At Suvarnabhumi airport in Bangkok on my return trip to KL, during security check and baggage x-ray scan, the security officer spotted a pocket knife in my laptop bag.
I forgot (REALLY!) that I left if in the bag. It was in my laptop bag when I departed from KL. So that is how my pocket knife was confiscated.
Well this is not about losing the pocket knife, but to highlight the security check or lack of it between Suvarnabhumi airport and the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA).
At KLIA, for my flight to Bangkok, I had to go through 2 security checks and baggage x-ray scans. The 1st is after the immigration counters and the the 2nd at the departure gate. At both security checks, the pocket knife was not detected.
In Suvarnabhumi, there is only 1 security check after the immigration counters. Furthermore, we were required to remove our laptop from the bag and belt for the scan, but at KLIA this was not required.
How could KLIA security miss detecting my pocket knife? I shudder to think what would have happened if some hijacker manage to sneak in some weapon onto the plane.

SCIENTISTS in Britain believe they have cracked the answer to the age-old question of which came first, the chicken or the egg?
Researchers have found that a protein called ovocleidin (OC-17) is crucial in the formulation of eggshells, and it is produced in the pregnant hen's ovaries, the Daily Express reports.
Therefore, the answer to the conundrum must be that the chicken came first.

We had brunch at Sushi King and thereafter walked around the shopping centre.
There is a mini library run by the Perpustakaan Negara Malaysia on the 1st floor. Finally a library nearby. Don't expect to see a huge collection of reading materials, this is a mini library.
To borrow books, you need your MyKad and for the children, their MyKid. As of this moment, we still can't borrow the books.
