Where is our Public Holiday?

Lee Chong Wei won the All England Championship 2011 and made all Malaysians really proud of him. He overcame his mental nemesis, Lin Dan. One of the reasons why Chong Wei faltered each time he played against Lin Dan was his mental weakness, not his physical skills. Now, Malaysians stand tall with Chong Wei to say SYABAS! YOU DID IT!

Chong Wei is now truly a world champion in badminton beyond a shadow of a doubt. He is finally ranked amongst the elite few who have won the All England title, perhaps the most coveted crown in the world of badminton.

Now, we have a big and important question to ask our dear Prime Minister. When are you going to announce a PUBLIC HOLIDAY to celebrate this amazing win which is truly WORLD CLASS? You declared 31 December 2010 a public holiday when our national football team won the AFF Suzuki Cup. That is Asean Class, hardly worth the cheer.

Chong Wei has done what few has achieved and his persistence and dedication to be a world champion has dawned in 2011. Yes, he has been awarded a Datukship. But in the same sentiments of the AFF Suzuki Cup win, Malaysians deserve a public holiday to celebrate!

Come on, Mr Prime Minister. This declaration will be consistent with your intents to encourage Malaysians to be champions, in this case, a WORLD CHAMPION!

When? When? When?

iPhone 4G: Hard Act To Follow

The real beauty of a phone

The real beauty of a phone

Apple introduced their fourth generation of PDA phones last year and the competition is still catching up.

In what can be termed as a quantum leap in PDA phone technology when Apple first launched their iPhone series, they have managed to continue their leadership by a mile, so to speak.

Here are a few outstanding features that are worth considering when looking for a new device like this one. I consider these compelling features. If they don’t excite you, then you may be better off getting something else.

    Retina Display – Apple continues to push the display envelop knowing far well that consumers eyes will be captivated by what they see. The WOW factor generated by this technology for the iPhone 4G gives the immediate allure to want to get one. You must see it to believe what I say.

    FaceTime – This is Apple’s answer to the Balckberry Messenger which is free to BB users. Apple also provide FT free and this is a video chat service between FT enabled devices which includes the latest iPod Touch and various MacBooks.

    Fun and Games – The iPhone 4G continues the legacy of providing endless entertaining moments. The Android apps are certainly catching up but Apple has the edge for a little while more. The ease of use to non-techies is just amazing as Apple adopted the intuitive interaction approach where everybody can use with no problem.

So if these do wow you, then you must get one.
