Something new and some news

1. Notice anything new about my blog?

A few visitors mentioned that my blog looks boring without a banner. Found this picture of palm trees, which I had taken sometime back. Yep! I have a new banner.

2. Some people are of the opinion that having a blog with your own domain name means moving up to the next level of blogging. They sneer at the poor people with a Blogspot blog (like mine). Now I am one of them - the elite. I too have a domain name for my blog now: ahoklah.co.nr and look down on the others. ha ha ha. Actually it links back to my Blogspot blog.

It's totally FOC (free of charge) thanks to the good guys at CO.NR Free Domain Name.

3. I have been trying to find a picture of the World's first solar-powered motorbike on the net but couldn't find it. Finally got my hands on a copy of the NST that carried the story and scanned the picture. Called the Turtle, it has a top speed of around 90 km/hr. The Turtle is manufactured by SOLARin Holdings (M) Sdn Bhd at their plant in Pahang and is expected to cost around RM3,000. Another first from Malaysia.

from the NST, Monday, July 10, 2006. p. 36.

4. Woke up this morning to find that the haze has come back to Malaysia again. Bring out the air filters and ionisers again.

5. Noticed this in University Malaya sometime back.

Can anyone tell me what it means? No, there's no First Aid box inside, though I did notice a broom.

Hahah ... what an appropriate name for a slow bike. Yes the haze is killing everyone's view. Hope it clears up fast. I wonder why it repeats all the time and no one is doing anything about it.

Want to buy one when it comes out. Can save a lot on petrol. A bit worried about the service and availability of parts though.

hurray! adam finally has a banner... and it looks nice too. hey, it would be a good idea to have a half-eaten apple as your banner picture too. :)

I must thank you :P I was browsing different blogs and found yours, only to find this post, only to find the domain site.

Thank you thank you. Thank you so very much.

Charri> You are welcome. Only one "thank you" is enough ;-) Not sure for what though.
