Elections Sooner Than Soon?
Need inspiration for the election? Pick up a magazine.
An elderly man attempted what no man (including me) in the same building would have dreamt of attempting before. What worries me more is that such an impact caused the glass to break. That glass is thick man! Everytime I stay in high rise buildings and hotels, I will stay away from the glasses just in case I may accidently bump one in the 20th storey.
Anyway if you want to see more close up photos, I believe my Wisma Bapa blogger colleague has it in her blog Memory Lane.
Rakan Cop in Kuching
The Prime Minister will be launching the national level Rakan Cop this April 16 2006 at Mederka Square Kuala Lumpur. The Police here have a few programmes lined up already and I am sure its going to be an impressive and exciting one. I manage to catch a glimpse of their trial runs recently.

I saw someone cycling on the road today as I returned from work. It was a sight to see as I thought that bicycles and those who cycle have become extinct in this busy and major part of town. Its cool and I am suddenly thinking about getting one like that.

1st Silicon (X-Fab of Germany & SEDC tie up?)
News announced in 1st Silicon's website that its merging with X-Fab Semi Conductor Foundries AG. This has been confirmed in EETimes. Excerpts: "German CMOS foundry X-Fab Semiconductor Foundries AG has agreed terms to take over the Malaysian foundry 1st Silicon Sdn. Bhd. The deal would almost double X-Fab's manufacturing capacity. A value for the deal has not been disclosed. The majority shareholders of both companies agreed to treat the transaction as a merger on the basis of an equity exchange, but X-Fab has no plans to communicate the transaction's value, Thomas Hartung, X-Fab vice president of marketing and sales, told EE Times."
So we are looking at more rosy days ahead for 1st Silicon?
