Mitsubishi Evo X

Thursday, March 26, 2009

Before I start to comment with regard to the situation, I would like to say that, I'm very impressed with the design of this car. *stare

First of all, obviously it is not mine. Secondly, this is not new thing. I'm the one who lagged behind I admit. It didn't even being shown in their feeds!!! Arrghh!!

KUALA LUMPUR: The Royal Malaysian police has bought 25 high-powered Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution cars to catch criminals and speed hogs.The cars, worth several millions of ringgit, would be fitted with safety gadgets and would sport the looks of police patrol cars.

Sources said the police had al­­ready taken possession and were testing the cars before sending them to the Road Transport Depart­ment for registration and approval.

“The cars are to be used in high-speed car chase, especially in cases of carjacking, kidnapping and hi­­jacking.

“The speed of the cars would enable the police to catch up with criminals who often used modified turbo charged cars to escape,” they said.

Several police personnel have been sent to undergo intensive driving classes to ensure they are able to handle the super charged cars, they added.

The cars, they said, would also be used by the highway patrol unit to monitor speed hogs or illegal racers.

Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Musa Hassan confirmed the purchase but declined to elaborate.

As a son of someone who keep the roads a safe place, this is what I THINK. I'll say them in a simple way.

Generally it is GOOD!

It in a way elevates the image of local police toward the citizens.

Just like the article, I agree that it matches our police operational conducts with current tactics of road criminals.

For me, it is like another sign of how our police are turning from supression to oppression toward the criminals. (Provided that they fully utilise the cars). Well, for this one, sadly those police are likely to be challenged by criminals as well since we are starting to have drifter on the streets.

I don't know if it would be a disgrace toward local car manufacturers as claimed by certain people or not. It should be noted that they don't manufacture sport cars in the first place. So, there shouldn't be any case like that. Like my teacher once said, "be humble". It is better not to think so highly to ourselves until not accepting what others might have to offer.

I won't say something like "the old folks aren't suited for those things", of course. Like the PPSMI students, there are new generations being raised in the security forces as well. I'm looking forward into that. Hei! I'm being optimistic here!

BUT then,

It is TOTALLY a matter of how those cars are used. Nothing much about money. (Maybe for the government, it is similar to how I feel when buying 25 piece of Ferrero Rochers, I dont know XD)

Which makes me to some degree similar to other critics,... I would like to see how number of criminals can be decreased with those purchase.

Digital Broadcast

Sunday, March 8, 2009
I'll start with this quote from The Star Online dated today

"KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysians will have to buy a special decoder to access free digital TV by 2015 as all Asean countries will stop analog broadcasting by then, says Information Minister Datuk Ahmad Shabery"

And I'll end it with another quote from the same page

"More to come"

(p/s: 'Special' decoder? Does that suppose to mean... it is super expensive? super quality? super encrypted? or merely to differentiate it from Astro decoder - -)
(p/s: Just watched Clannad After Story ep 16... Nagisa dont die...sobs)

Earth Hour 2009 by WWF - Sign up for Earth Hour!

Here goes. Simple and comprehensible enough... I hope.

On 28 March 2009, Saturday... to be more exact, at 8.30pm Malaysia time,
Malaysian are encouraged to turn off their light, for one just one hour!

At the same time, the whole world will be doing the same thing.

Why again?
It is the Earth Hour!

What does it mean?
It is an awareness program to replicate a global ELECTION!
You will be voting either Mr. Global Warming or Mr. Earth!
By turning them all your lights off, you'll be voting for the earth! Yeah!
By letting it be on, you'll be voting for global warming! Booo!

"WWF are urging the world to VOTE EARTH and reach the target of 1 billion votes, which will be presented to world leaders at the Global Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen 2009. This meeting will determine official government policies to take action against global warming, which will replace the Kyoto Protocol. It is the chance for the people of the world to make their voice heard."

I'll be supporting this event. You all as well!!!! Let's vote for the best!
Kyoto Protocol, its not a kid matters.

(p/s: I wish to see KLCC darkened =D)
