MAS removes chicken from menu on flights from China

General News January 29th, 2009

KUALA LUMPUR, Jan 29 — In light of the government’s indefinite ban on chicken imports from China, Malaysia Airlines has removed chicken from its inflight menu for flights out of China, effective today.

Instead, fish, mixed seafood and beef will be served, depending on sectors. However, chicken will remain on the menu for flights out of Malaysia as the meat here is sourced from local farms.

MAS general manager for inflight services Hayati Ali said: “The safety of our passengers is top priority for us at Malaysia Airlines. This move is aimed at ensuring the comfort and well-being of our passengers.”

President Obama’s acceptance speech

General News November 5th, 2008

Barack Obama

I think it’s worth for me to keep this copy of Obama’s acceptance speech here. The speech is so inspired and giving me the believe not to be afraid of CHANGE. We need to change for the better and we have to believe that we can do it.

Here’s the prepared transcript of his acceptance speech from the Yahoo News Room:

Remarks of President-Elect Barack Obama-as prepared for delivery
Election Night
Tuesday, November 4th, 2008
Chicago, Illinois

If there is anyone out there who still doubts that America is a place where all things are possible; who still wonders if the dream of our founders is alive in our time; who still questions the power of our democracy, tonight is your answer.

It’s the answer told by lines that stretched around schools and churches in numbers this nation has never seen; by people who waited three hours and four hours, many for the very first time in their lives, because they believed that this time must be different; that their voice could be that difference.

It’s the answer spoken by young and old, rich and poor, Democrat and Republican, black, white, Latino, Asian, Native American, gay, straight, disabled and not disabled – Americans who sent a message to the world that we have never been a collection of Red States and Blue States: we are, and always will be, the United States of America.

It’s the answer that led those who have been told for so long by so many to be cynical, and fearful, and doubtful of what we can achieve to put their hands on the arc of history and bend it once more toward the hope of a better day.

It’s been a long time coming, but tonight, because of what we did on this day, in this election, at this defining moment, change has come to America.

AirAsia offers 5,000 free Kuching-Singapore seats

General News October 8th, 2008

KUCHING: Low-cost carrier AirAsia is offering 5,000 free seats on its new Kuching-Singapore route that starts next month.

Tickets for the route went on sale on the airline’s website on midnight Wednesday with the free seats available for booking between now and Oct 19.

AirAsia chief executive Datuk Tony Fernandes said the Kuching-Singapore route would be a huge boost to tourism in Sarawak.

“We’re currently doing a very aggressive marketing campaign in Singapore and our first flight will be on Nov 1.

“We will start with one flight a day and from March onwards we will increase the frequency,” he said at a media briefing here yesterday.

On the Kuching-Macau flight, which will be suspended on Oct 26 due to low passenger load, Fernandes said AirAsia would look into reinstating it in three months’ time.

“We will work closely with the Sarawak Tourism Board to promote the state to Macau and south China and we hope to reinstate this route within the next two to three months,” he said.

He also announced that AirAsia will increase the frequency of its Kuala Lumpur-Bintulu route from seven to 11 flights a week and Kuching-Bintulu from seven to 14 flights weekly beginning Oct 26.

Meanwhile, state Urban Development and Tourism Minister Datuk Michael Manyin welcomed the new route to Singapore, saying it would boost connectivity and help bring in more tourists to the state.

To further develop the tourism industry, he said Sarawak’s tourism authorities would work with their Sabah counterparts to jointly promote the two states.

“For example, we will promote Mulu and Mount Kinabalu together as both have been listed as Unesco World Heritage Sites.

“We will also promote our indigenous festivals together, with plans for tourists to go to Sabah, first for Kaamatan, before continuing on to Sarawak for Gawai Dayak,” he said. – TheStar
