Volvo On Call

My Volvo S80 decided not to start at 10:00pm tonight due to a flat battery that has only been in use for 3 months. That is bad news. Unable to start the car, just pick up my mobile and call Volvo On Call toll free line for the first time and in 30 minutes, the technicant arrived with a brand new battery and replaced for me at totally no charge. That is definitely good service and I hope that can continue to count on Volvo On Call in the future should my car refuse to cooperate again.

Belgian Shepherd (Malinois)

On July 2, 2005 a group of us including my wife, Raja and Law KS were down south in Jelebu to view Malinois puppies. It was a cool morning drive for 1.5 hours to Jelebu and we spent a good later part of the morning seeing some bite works and enjoy some nice durian in the orchard. Law KS finally purchased his first Malinois from Mike and we should expect him to get into Schutzhund training in few months down the road. Some of the nice pictures taken during the day are :- At the young age of 10 weeks, these Malinois puppies showing no sign of backing off when challenged. The pups practising on bite works. Law KS trying out on bite works with an adult Malinois. The Malinois Kennel Malinois charging at the helper from 10 feet away. Raja stacking the GSD.

Tennis and Formula 1

Tennis and Formula 1 has always been my favourite sports. In Tennis, I always admire Andre Agassi who has gone through the up and down in life. The best Tennis matches that I enjoy the most must be the French Open Final in 1999 that was won by two old guards in Tennis, namely Andre Agassi and Steffi Graf. Their determination to win and commitment to the sports always motivate me in one way or another. In contrast, Martina Hinggis who has won many matches at young age faded away from Tennis world since then. Have not heard much of her since then. In Formula 1, the biggest thing that has happened must be the crash of Aryton Senna that has taken his life many years ago. Aryton Senna has never been my favourite and I enjoy watching Nigel Mansell, Alain Prost and Mika Hakinen racing more than others. Needless to say, McLaren is always my favourite team. Whether it is McLaren Honda or The West McLaren Mercedes Team, they always have my attention in all races. In recent years, I have watched Mika won for McLaren twice and glad to see McLaren is back to the running again in …
