I’ve always been a big fan of Air Asia, ever since these guys kid our shores flying has been the no 1 choice since its extremely affordable and sometimes it turns out cheaper then travelling by road(if you book early enough!) .
Travelling around this region has become a norm for most of us since the emergence of Air Asia and now they have take it one step further with AirAsia X!
The first long-haul budget carrier will fly to China and Australia and UK soon to follow,im pretty sure with the price points of the flights offered, flying abroad is now not a luxury anymore! To serve this purpose AirAsia X will be aquiring more flights that are capable of this kind of distance. I personally cant wait for this to happen and with Sir Richard Branson buying into this project, you know that its got potential to fly!

This topic was prompted from a email i received from a friend through the ContactMe page on this site. Thanks Devan for the idea, you got my brain ticking and here you have it! (If you have a topic you want me to look at, pls drop me a mail and ill get to it as soon as i can!)
A little back ground on this topic ,the email sent to me was as follows ->
Devan Said ;
“Tg. Piai located in Johor have been known to be the southernmost point of continent Asia, which means you can literally walk all the way from Tg.Piai, Johor right up to Russia, Europe, middle East and Africa. the thing is if you look at the brochure of discover Singapore, they claim Sentosa island to be the southernmost tip of Asia. They maybe be right as they are linked and they too can walk over using the causeway or 2nd link. so this is one more reason why Malaysia should get rid of the bridges!!!Your thoughts!!”
So i toke out my world map,courtesy of Google and to my delight Tg Piai is the southernmost point of continent Asia. What does this mean?? It means if you were to walk from Tg Piai to the north, you can effectively walk to China,Russia,Middle East and Africa!

That’s a large map showing that as long as your in Malaysia, you have access to all the mentioned continents by foot! The brochures raving about Sentosa island being the south most point to the continent has got to be absolute rubbish unless the we are mysteriously being connected by the dead whale lying between Malaysia and Singapore which they Singaporeans have claimed to be theirs
Like Devan has rightly said, we should probably remove the linking bridges and cut the water supply and watch the show eh?
Sorry to dash your hopes and dreams my dear Singaporean brother’s and sister’s ,Sentosa island is not the South most point.Its just another marketing gimmick(or that dude just didn’t have access to a map) to make you feel proud to be Singaporean!
Found this on the web of a trip this guy made to Tg Piai,looks pretty good if you like a get away to nature –>Tg Piai
In view of the drama’s we been having lately with Express buses crashing out of the road and taking lives with them, the latest drama has unfolded in the form of the insurance companies making conditions to insure them.
Based on a article i read on The Star, its indicated that the insurance companies are now laying down a list of conditions before insuring.
Below are some of the conditions :
The company, which insures the bulk of express buses on the road, will require bus companies to pay up to RM5,000 for death or injuries, and RM10,000 for property damage claims if those conditions are not fulfilled.
Among the conditions are:
> Full compliance with permit provisions,
> Having Puspakom road-worthiness certificates,
> That drivers are not drug addicts and alcoholics,
> That drivers have valid licences and are free of traffic warrants, and
> That drivers are physically and mentally fit
Pan Malaysian Bus Operators Association president came out slamming this action saying that the bus insurers are holding the bus companies ransom with these directives.Its a requirement for bus companies to have insurances and there are no 2 ways about it.
What’s he whinning about??
I find this whole thing absolute rubbish!! Aren’t the above basic things that all bus companies are supposed to comply anyway?? I think its a good move by the insurance companies in implementing these guidelines.
Think about it, would you travel on a bus that’s nor roadworthy?driven by a drug addict/alcoholic?No License?Mentally not fit? or does not have a driving license?
No brainer isn’t it?
With the Pan Malaysian Bus Operators Association president making such noises only makes you wonder how much dirt there actually is isn’t it?
Ponder about it!
