Perodua Car Models – Alza, Axia, Myvi or Bezza   Leave a comment


Perodua Car Models – Alza, Axia, Myvi or Bezza

The Perusahaan Otomobil Kedua Sendirian Berhad (Second Automobile Manufacturer Private Limited), usually abbreviated to Perodua /pəˈrɒdjə/, is Malaysia‘s largest automobile manufacturer closely followed by Proton. It was established in 1992 and launched their first car, the Perodua Kancil in August 1994. ‘M2’ refers to the codename which was used when the project to establish Perodua was still top secret. The shareholders of Perodua are UMW Corporation Sdn Bhd with 38% stake, Daihatsu Motor Co. Ltd. (20%), MBM Resources Bhd (20%), PNB Equity Resources Corporation Sdn Bhd (10%), Mitsui & Co. Ltd (7%) and Daihatsu (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd (5%).

Perodua mainly produces minicars and superminis and does not have models in the same market segments as Proton. They do not design or engineer their main components, such as engine and transmission, in house. Perodua cars have historically used Daihatsu component designs. Daihatsu held a 20% stake in Perodua at the company’s launch, increasing this to 25% in 2001 and then to 35%. In 2004, Perodua started assembling the Toyota Avanza at their plant in Rawang, for sale in Malaysia.

Perodua sold over 189,000 vehicles in 2012, which was its highest ever sales record. Its estimated market share in Malaysia was 30.2 per cent. It is planning to set up a second car manufacturing plant from the planned $770 million investments in the coming years.

A Day Bus Trip to Petaling Jaya   Leave a comment


A Day Bus Trip to Petaling Jaya
I bought an Aeroline Express Bus ticket headed to One Utama (1-U) at Damansara, near Petaling Jaya, Selangor at RM60.00 at Queensbay Mall for the Tuesday, November 24,2015. Tickets for Sunday 22.11.2015 and Monday 23.11.2015 were sold out, as it was a busy week-end for Penang with the Marathon and start of the school holidays. Stated on the ticket was the 9.00 am schedule but when the bus left the station at Queensbay Mall, it was 9.30 am. Weather was good but cloudy most of the all. A smooth ride and quite well served by the male steward with a small bottled water drink and vegetarian bee-hoon in a plastic box. A hot coffee with dairy creamer followed after Ipoh. A short stop was made at a petrol station at Simpang Pulai near Ipoh. After the stop it was non-stop to Petaling Jaya. Finally we reached One Utama Bus Terminal for Aeroline at 1.40 pm. After a stop rest, it is back to Penang by car.

Motor-cyclists of Vietnam – Take 2   Leave a comment


Motor-cyclists of Vietnam – Take 2

From Wikipedia:
A motorcycle (also called a motorbike, bike, moto or cycle) is a two or three wheeled motor vehicle. Motorcycle design varies greatly to suit a range of different purposes: long distance travel, commuting, cruising, sport including racing, and off-road riding. Motorcycling is riding a motorcycle and related social activity such as joining a motorcycle club and attending motorcycle rallies.

In 1894, Hildebrand & Wolfmüller became the first series production motorcycle, and the first to be called a motorcycle. In 2012, the three top motorcycle producers globally by volume were Honda, Bajaj Auto, and Hero MotoCorp.

Motorcycles are mainly a luxury good in the developed world, where they are used mostly for recreation, as a lifestyle accessory or a symbol of personal identity. In developing countries, motorcycles are overwhelmingly utilitarian due to lower prices and greater fuel economy. Of all the motorcycles in the world, 58% are in the Asia Pacific and Southern and Eastern Asia regions, excluding car-centric Japan.

According to the United States Department of Transportation the number of fatalities per vehicle mile traveled was 37 times higher for motorcycles than for cars.

View of Ho Chi Minh City and outskirts from the bus   Leave a comment


View of Ho Chi Minh City and outskirts from the bus
If you do not mind some of these photographs have reflections from the bus glass, sometimes. It happened that April 30th, 2015, the next day after our arrival, is the 40th Anniversary of the Victory of Ho Chi Minh of North Vietnam over the former South Vietnam Government. The City was “ablaze” with bill-boards, posters, and flags. I am quite pleased with the extra colourful decorative additions to the city barring politics aside. More pleasant photo-shooting, indeed. Motor-cycles are seen over the place as I read somewhere that one in four of the population in Vietnam owned a motor-cycle as a great convenience in transportation. However, the norm of 2 passengers to a vehicle is not strictly followed. I had the opportunity of photographing of one passenger per motor-cycle to the maximum of 4 passengers per bike. However, I did miss shooting the 5 passengers per motor-cycle twice as I was not prepared to shoot. Next time when I go to Vietnam again as a tourist with a point-and-shoot camera rather than a photographer with heavy DSLR cameras and equipment on a photo expedition.

Motor-cyclists of Vietnam   Leave a comment


Motor-cyclists of Vietnam I was quite fascinated by the passing motor-cyclists beside our bus. There are blurry photos here as I just hurriedly shoot away without checking the settings due to the “urgency” of capturing the scene. The number of motor-cyclists is just overwhelming in numbers!

“Motorbikes are the most popular means of transportation in Vietnam, which has a population of 90 million people and 37 million registered motorbikes, according to the Ministry of Transport. (The number of cars is around 2 million.)Nov 7, 2013″ from Google

The Stunt Cyclists in action   Leave a comment


The Stunt Cyclists in action, at the Project Occupy Beach Street held on 3, November 2013. As I took so many photographs that day, I had categorized the photos into activity-related segments. Enjoy.

Progress of modifications to the main Wesak Float   Leave a comment


Some members of the Wesak Procession were following up on the progress of the modifications to be made to the Main Wesak Float by end December 2013. We should be ready by the next Wesak Procession to be held on 13 of May, 2014.

What is Wesak Celebration ?
Vesākha (Pali;Sanskrit: Vaiśākha, Sinhala: වෙසක් පෝය, Devanagari: वैशाख, Nepali: बुद्ध पुर्णिमा, बुद्ध जयन्ति, Bengali: বুদ্ধ পূর্ণিমা or ভেসাক, Thai: วิสาขบูชา), Wesak or Vesak also known as Buddha Purnima is a holy day observed traditionally by Buddhists in Nepal, Sri Lanka, Tibet, Bangladesh, Bhutan, India and the South East Asian countries of Singapore, Vietnam, Thailand, Cambodia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, the Philippines, and Indonesia.[1] Sometimes informally called “Buddha’s Birthday”, it actually commemorates the birth, enlightenment (nirvāna), and death (Parinirvāna) of Gautama Buddha.[2]
The exact date of Vesākha varies according to the various lunar calendars used in different traditions. In Theravada countries following the Buddhist calendar, it falls on a full moon Uposatha day, typically in the 5th or 6th lunar month. Vesākha Day in China and Korea is on the eighth of the fourth month in the Chinese lunar calendar. The date varies from year to year in the Western Gregorian calendar, but usually falls in April or May. In leap years Vesākha is celebrated in June.
The name of the observance is derived from the Pali term vesākha or Sanskrit vaiśākha, which is the name of the lunar month falling in April–May (see Vaisakha).[3] In Mahayana Buddhist traditions, the holiday is known by its Sanskrit name (Vaiśākha) and derived variants of it. Local renditions of the name vary by language, including:
Nepali: Buddha Purnima (बुद्ध पुर्णिमा), Budhha Jayanti (बुद्ध जयन्ति)
Bengali: Buddho Purnima (বুদ্ধ পূর্ণিমা), Buddho Joyonti (বুদ্ধ জয়ন্তী) or Bhesak (ভেসাক)
Sinhala: Vesak (වෙසක්) Full Moon Poya Day
Burmese: Kason Full Moon Day
Chinese: Fó Dàn (佛誕), Yù Fó Jié (浴佛節), Wèi Sāi Jié (衛塞節) or Fāt Dàahn
Filipino: Araw Ni Buddha
Indonesian: Hari Waisak
Japanese: Hanamatsuri (花祭)
Khmer: Visak Puja (or Visak Bochea) (វិសាខបូជា)
Korean: Seokka Tanshin-il (석가 탄신일, 釋迦誕身日)
Laotian: Vixakha Bouxa
Malaysian: Hari Wesak
Tibetan: Saga Dawa (*ས་ག་ཟླ་བ། )
Thai: Wisakha Bucha (วิสาขบูชา)
Vietnamese: Phật Đản

I leave with a few of Buddha’s quotes to ponder,
“Just as a candle cannot burn without fire, men cannot live without a spiritual life.”
“To live a pure unselfish life, one must count nothing as one’s own in the midst of abundance.”
“You cannot travel the path until you have become the path itself.”
“Your work is to discover your work and then with all your heart to give yourself to it.”
Sadhu, sadhu, sadhu.
