    “Attacks could be indiscriminate and may target Western interest or locations frequented by Westerners,” said the Australian government in a statement on their website.

     

    The government added that the level of advice has not changed and members of the public should “exercise normal safety precautions”.

     

    “We continue to advise Australians to reconsider the need to travel to the coastal region of eastern Sabah, and to exercise normal security precautions in Malaysia overall.”

    A spokesperson from the Malaysian Foreign Ministry said they had taken note of the advisories, and had acknowledged the efforts of the Malaysian authorities in strengthening the security presence in the areas mentioned.

     

    They added that there was “nothing to be alarmed of” and that they would “continue to keep foreign missions informed on the security developments”.

     

    “We also acknowledge the fact that foreign missions are at liberty to provide their own assessment of the security situation in their host countries albeit the fact that it may not be accurate or gives a true reflection of the situation.” the statement said.

  • How To Be A Successful Salesperson If You Think You Can’t

    1. Ask yourself: What words come to mind when I think of myself as a salesperson?

     

    2. Listen to the response that arises inside your head:

     

    • If you find you’re thinking words like helpful, partner, problem-solver, relationship builder, mutual benefit – congratulations. You have the core mindset of a successful 21st century salesperson.
    • If your thoughts are running more along the lines of words like rejection, pushy,fake, annoying, unwanted, manipulative, scary – I suggest you continue on to step 3.

     

    3. What could you say to yourself that’s more positive and hopeful about the idea of you as a salesperson – yet still feels true to you?  I asked my mate and his response was, “I have a great product that some people will find useful. If people don’t want to buy it, it’s no reflection on me.”

     

    Remember, you just need to keep things Great, Simple, Positive and Accurate.


  • MH Flight 370 may have flown for hours after dropping off radar

    US investigators believe MH370 flew for hours longer than first thought based on data automatically downloaded and sent to the ground from the Boeing 777’s engines. Hence, I reckon this incident is far more complex than we initially told and thought.

     

    Boeing 777-200ER 9M-MRO

     

    According to the Wall Street Journal initially said they could not reach Rolls-Royce for comment but later updated the story with a response.

     

    “We continue to monitor the situation and to offer Malaysia Airlines our support,” a Rolls-Royce representative told the publication.

     

    “The disappearance is officially not an accident and all information about this is strictly handled by investigators,” a Rolls-Royce executive is reported to have said. Also quoted was a Boeing executive who declined to comment except to say: “We’ve got to stand back from the front line of the information.”

     

    It was reported that live data from the plane’s Trent 800 engines is recorded in 30-minute increments and sent to Rolls-Royce for analysis, with the information showing details such as altitude and speed of the jet.

     

    Rolls Royce Trent 800

     

    Rolls-Royce says on its website that engine data is routinely used “so that plane operators can easily view the health of their fleet of engines”. “Snapshots” are sent from the aircraft to the ground during take-off, during a climb, once the aircraft is in cruise and at the end of the flight – and are also triggered by unusual engine conditions, the website states. “The snapshot data is always ‘trended’, so that subtle changes in condition from one flight to another can be detected.”

     

    A total flight time of 5 hours means the Boeing 777 could have travelled about 2200 nautical miles after leaving Kuala Lumpur and potentially have reached the Indian Ocean, the border of Pakistan or even the Arabian Sea, the Wall Street Journal said.

  • No Trace of Missing MH370 Wrackage

    As of now, still no confirmed debris found from missing MH370 Boeing 777-200ER jet, says Malaysian official.

     

    “Unfortunately, ladies and gentlemen, we have not found anything that appear to be objects from the aircraft, let alone the aircraft,” Azharuddin Abdul Rahman, director general of the Malaysian civil aviation department, told media members Monday.

     

    Vietnam’s civil aviation body said they have retrieved a “yellow floating object,” but it was not a plane life raft.  So the mysteries surrounding Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 and the true identities of some of its passengers remain unsolved.

  • Oil Slicks Spotted in MH370 Search

    The Vietnamese air force has reported two large oil slicks close to where a Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777 went missing earlier in the day, the first sign that the aircraft carrying 239 people had crashed.

    The air force planes were part of a multinational search operation launched after Flight MH370 fell off radar screens less than an hour after it took off from Kuala Lumpur for Beijing early Saturday morning.

     

    The oil slicks were spotted late Saturday off the southern tip of Vietnam and were each between 10 kilometers and 15 kilometers long, the Vietnamese government said in a statement. There was no confirmation that the slicks were related to the missing plane, but the statement said they were consistent with the kinds that would be produced by the two fuel tanks of a crashed jetliner.

  • Macau Pork Chop Burger at Tai Lei Loi Kei Cafe, Taipa, Macau

    Recently, I have travelled to Macau – the Asia’s casino capital for 3 days 2 nights company annual getaway trip. In short, I conclude the most famous and more convincing casinos in Macau are – Grand Lisboa Casino, MGM, City of Dreams and The Venetian.

     


     

     

     

    Before the trip, I was recommended to try out the famous local style Pork Chop Burger at Tai Lei Loi Kei Cafe near The Venetian at Taipa, Macau.

    氹仔巴波沙前地18號

     

    Basically, the pork chop burger has no lettuce, pickles, tomato, cheese but just a piece of pork chop and bread. Technically, the bread is different from other pork chop buns I have seen and had. It is slightly crispier and the texture was perfect.

     

    In conclusion, my expectation was higher. Perhaps, it is over-rated by the folks in the cyber world and the price is slightly at the high side for the location and serving. But it is worth tasting it at least for once.
