A businessman from Arizona started this business of chartering couples on a 90-minute flight for special occasions like birthdays, anniversaries or for nothing!
They fly around in the Arizona sky while couples take in the scenery and champagne and possibly try out their fantasy of having sex on a plane! *Wink wink wink wink*
Membership for the club is US$150 per annum, or for just $750, you can have that flight. [source]
Niceeeee, having to fulfill this fantasy, don’t you think? Get your partner to dress up as a pilot or stewardess at the same time. Woooooooooo ;D
I wonder if I’ll get to try it one day. I wanna be ‘plane naughty’, too!
Last year, I blogged about Doraemon’s ending. As the creator of Doraemon, Fujiko F. Fujio passed away in 1996, there is no official ending. However, there are numerous unofficial endings created by third parties. I found one uploaded at http://www.kejut.com .
The entire episode @ http://www.kejut.com/doraemon1 (In Japanese with English translation)
Interestingly, iit was reported that the artist of the above unofficial Doraemon ending had to compensate the publisher Shogakukan Inc. and Fujiko Productions, the management company of late Doraemon creator Fujio F. Fujiko for copyright infringement. . He published a book featuring the above story and sold them online and at Akihabara bookstores for 500 yen apiece. He sold about 13,000 copies.
Warning: a forwarded joke via email.
Two priests decided to go to Hawaii on vacation.
They were determined to make this a real vacation by not wearing anything that would identify them as clergy.
As soon as the plane landed they headed for a store and bought some really outrageous shorts, shirts, sandals, sunglasses, etc. The next morning they went to the beach dressed in their “tourist” garb.
They were sitting on beach chairs, enjoying a drink, the sunshine and the scenery when a drop dead gorgeous blonde in a topless bikini came walking straight towards them. They couldn’t help but stare.
As the blonde passed them she smiled and said “Good Morning, Father ~ Good Morning, Father,” nodding and addressing each of them individually, then she passed on by.
They were both stunned.
How in the world did she know they were priests?
So the next day, they went back to the store and bought even more outrageous outfits. These were so loud you could hear them before you even saw them!
Once again, in their new attire, they settled down in their chairs to enjoy the sunshine.
After a little while, the same gorgeous blonde, wearing a different colored topless bikini, taking her sweet time, came walking toward them.
Again she nodded at each of them, said “Good morning, Father ~ Good morning, Father,” and started to walk away.
One of the priests couldn’t stand it any longer and said, “Just a minute, young lady.”
“We are priests and proud of it, but I have to know, how in the world do you know we are priests, dressed as we are?”
Recently, it was reported that some sort of scam has been hitting residents of the Klang Valley. This has caused a stir in the legal fratinity.
It started off with the following email.
Dear family members and friends
I am writing this e-mail to warn all of you. This is what happen to me on 18th may 2007 at 10.00am. The phone rang and i answer, a voice message stated that the call is from the Malaysian High Court mentioning that i have a case to attend at the KL High Court. Rather curious of what sort of case i have, so i press 9 to talk to the operator.
The operator speaks very ‘slow english’ if you know what i mean. She insist that i must give her my name and ic no. in order for her to check what sort of case i have. I hold on for a few seconds and she ask me if that is really my ic no. I confirmed and she also confirmed that i have a case to attend. She says that she will faxed the doucument over to Bukit Aman Police station and the officer will call me in 3 munites.
So i hung up, through enough i received the call less than 2 minutes. He announced himself as Yeoh Long Wah from Bukit Aman police station. He ask me a lot of questions and say the criminal have use my ic detail to open bank account in Maybank and Public Bank in Negeri Sembilan.
He then ask me whether i have a bank account in Maybank and Public Bank. I told him that i have a Public Bank a/c. He says that i have to answer his questions honestly so that he can help me with my case. The questions he ask like have you lost yr ic before, did you hand over yr ic to anybody for documentaion and how much money u have in yr a/c
I told him i cannot reveal the amount in my account and that i will meet him in Bukit Aman police station. He says fine and meet him before 4pm and gave me the phone no 03-77826222.
I rang my lawyer and ask for advise. She ask me to fix the appointment with the so call police on Sat or Monday since today is Friday and mosque day. I called the the no 77826222 and the police answer telling me that this is not Bukit Aman police station but police station in Old Klang Road. I told the police the problem and he told me to launch a police report in Subang Jaya police station because they have been receiving a lot of these calls from people.
I went to Public Bank to freeze all my a/c for the time being. I am sharing all these with you so that you will not go through the trauma i went through

Subsequently, members of the Malaysian lawyers google group, The Rostrum reported that few of their clients were victim of this scam.
One of the members, Mr Leong Yeng Kit gave a great insight on this matter:
Several of my clients received these calls and some unfortunately divulged their personal information. Now, there are several ways these fraudsters can use your personal information, it mainly revolves around identity theft. If they only have your name and NRIC No., they can use it to apply for credit cards / credit facilities and you end up with the bill. I’ve advised another client to lodge police reports on fraudulent cards which they have not applied for, with lots of credit racked up. When we sighted the NRIC used for the registration of the card, the NRIC showed the proper name, ic no and address of the customer, but the picture of the IC was totally different. Syndicates have long used specialized machines to produce NRICs better (and faster) than our own NRD can. Smart chip? Not a problem.
Second scenario – Private Investigators in this country also have the ability to conduct “covert searches” on any person’s bank account and asset profile. They usually have sources in banks and EPF, Bank Negara, Socso, telcos etc who would only be too happy to release such information for a fee – all they need is an NRIC number. This information, coupled with the ability to create identity cards – they can virtually clear out the accounts from any person.
The types of fraud goes on and on, and I’ve seen so many that my confidence in the system is shattered.
I deal with fraud matters a lot for banking and utility institutional clients, trying to improve their internal systems to help prevent these types of fraud. Whilst I can say that throwing money at the problem in acquiring and deploying better Fraud Management Systems helps, it is really not/hardly foolproof. And any fool can actually pull off such identity theft – all you need is the will.
Hope I have been of assistance to you and your clients. Just take all necessary precautions to protect your assets and your identity. That’s the best you can do and pray it works.
Another member, Mr Chia Cheng Wee pointed out that this scam is not new. In USA, there a scam with similar modus operandi. See http://www.snopes.com/crime/fraud/juryduty.asp
Please inform your friends and relatives.
This picture has been going around via email under the heading of, “Never Make a Woman Unhappy!” or something like that. I received this yesterday via email, although I’ve already seen it on the blog, That Girl Emily.
It’s a blog supposedly started by Emily who found out that her husband cheated on her with her best friend. Furious and pissed off, she plotted her 14 days of vengeance by wrecking havoc one day at a time. The billboard was put up to humiliate her husband, Steve.
We were stuck in traffic for 3 hours.
I’M GOING TO BE BALD! BOTAK!
I am losing so much hair whenever I wash my hair, and when I wake up, I see hair on my pillow and my floor beside my bed.
They say it’s normal for about 30-40 (pieces? =D what’s the penjodoh bilangan for hair, anyone?) hair to drop daily. Perfectly healthy!
But pulling out dropped strands of hair while washing my hair is a scary thing.
Is it the diet? Is it the shampoo?
I hear that eating lots of spinach and protein will help make your hair stronger. But it doesn’t talk about preventing excessive hair dropping!
Any advice for a balding girl?

When the world was new, and all the Animals were just beginning to work for Man, there was a Camel that lived in the middle of a Desert.
All the Camel did was eat and eat and when anyone spoke to him he just said, “HUMPH!”
One day, the Horse came to him asking for help, “HEY YOU! Come and help us with the work!”
The Camel only said, “HUMPH!”
Later, the Dog came with a stick in his mouth, “HEY CAMEL! Come and help us by carrying some stuff.”
Bloody lazy Camel just went, “HUMPH!” and the Dog went off to complain to Man.
Then, the Ox came and asked the Camel for help. Again the Camel just went, “HUMPH!” and continued eating.
The Dog, Horse and Ox were damn pissed off as then Man told them to work double time since the useless HUMPH thing refused to help.
So the 3 animals complained to the Djinn of the Desert, how it was bloody unfair for everyone else to be working except for the lazy good-for-nothing HUMPH Camel.
The Djinn was also annoyed, “What?! Later I HUMPH him, then he know!”
Angeline got us tickets to watch the reality TV show “So you think you can dance” live @ Ruums, KL. In this reality show, dancers are put up in a pair and must put up a good show to the judges and audience.
In this episode, there were 12 dancers remaining and were required to dance in pair. Their dances are all choreographed by experts and it involves all sorts of dances ranging from Malay contemporary to Chinese traditional dance. I heard that the last 12 dancers were either professional dancers or professionally trained.
Before the show started, the audiences were made to go on an applause rehearsal. We had to rehearse on how and when to cheer and clap.
