BP Oil Spill - BP rebranded

Eversince the BP oil leak issue, the evil of oil and its impact on the environment has become a hot topic again. As it is, there’s been extremely slow progress in the R&D of alternative power especially for vehicles.

It begs the question… have we been blinded by the promise of green technology for vehicles that we’ve forgotten to look back at the past for answers?

We already have vehicles that emit extremely small quantities of greenhouse gasses and doesn’t consume even a drop of gasolene. Let’s examine some of the models that you should consider as your next form of transportation.

What Digital Photography Means To Me

I bought my Sony α200 on 6 June 2008. In about three weeks time it would be my first anniversary as a DSLR user. Since that purchase, I’ve bought a couple of lenses, a tripod, a protective filter and a strobe (flash unit). If you think that’s too much subsequent purchases for a hobby; believe me there are others who are way more absorbed in their photographic gear than yours truly.

Petrol Prices To Be Revised: Guess The New Price And Win $30

Petrol Price

So it’s virtually confirmed; the price of petrol (or gas for you American folks) in Malaysia will be hiked. Abdullah Badawi says it will be announced and implemented tomorrow (Wednesday, 4 June 2008). Shahrir Samad (Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs Minister) says although the announcement might come tomorrow, implementation would take longer.

So who’s right? Our PM flip-flops so much that I find it becoming harder everyday to believe what he says. I tend to swing towards Datuk Shahrir in this issue, primarily because he’s a trained economist and petrol price control is under his ministry’s area of responsibility.

However, I can’t resist the temptation to guess what’s the new price of petrol would be soon. I’m sure many Malaysians and non-Malaysians do to. So why not make this guesswork (or speculation as our beloved PM seems to call it) be both fun and profitable.

I am now officially launching the “HTNet Speculate Guess The New Price Of Malaysian Petrol Contest” where there can only be one winner. The first person who guesses the correct revised price for a liter of petrol in Malaysia will be given $30 (USD)!

What Would You Do If You Won $350 Million Dollars? Blog About It!

I was in the midst of a bloghopping session and found a link to The Masked Millionaire. Now, before you think that this must be one of those irritating “make money online” blogs, I’m happy to tell you that it’s not.

The person behind The Masked Millionaire claims that he recently won just under $350 million in a lottery draw. Wow, that’s over a third of a billion US dollars! He’s also going to blog about his life as a freshly minted multi-millionaire.
