If Shanghai Bank Speaks Malay

"Saw this ad in Taiwan."

They even got a video clip for it.

It is just so wrong on so many levels naming your company's toy mascot after a favourite word Ah Bengs use to scold people. I wanna try to make a joke out of it, but I think I'll just take the classy road and stay quiet.

I only have one question though.

If the name of that little pig is called PUKI, does that mean his mother is called PUKIMA?

Sony's New Colourful Cyber-shot T2 Digital Camera

Sony’s latest Cyber-shot T2 has an internal memory capacity of 4GB and a large 2.7” LCD screen to share photos, available in five different colours.
The latest addition to the Cyber-shot T series is the new Cyber-shot T2, available in five funky colours of black, blue, green, pink and white. With a generous built-in memory capacity of 4GB, the new 8.1 mega-pixel Cyber-shot T2 stores more than 40,000 photos without any memory expansion. This means photos of many occasions can be saved in the camera without transferring them to the PC. On the other hand, photos that are stored in the PC can be transferred to the Cyber-shot T2 to bring along and to share with friends, just like a digital photo album. Bundled with the easy-to-use Sharemark software, one can easily upload photos to popular sites like Blogger and YouTube once the camera is connected to a PC online. The Cyber-shot T2 also offers a scrapbook function to create themes and frames on photos for fun sharing. With the PhotoTV HD feature, the Cyber-shot T2 allows high-definition photos to be viewed in more details on full HD and HD-ready televisions.

Photo Fix automatically improves light balance in one click to make your picture as good as it can get. When taking a picture of a moving object, for example at a sports event, you can select BestPic and take nine pictures in one burst. Then simply choose the best and delete the rest.

Next destination - Taiwan ~ Our honeymoon

Area :36,000 square kilometers
Population: 23 million
Capital : Taipei City
Language : Mandarin/Taiwanese/Hakka/Indigenous Languages
Religion : Buddhism/Taoism/Christian/Islam/Catholicism

Taiwan's total land area is only about 3,6000 square kilometers; it is shaped like a tobacco leaf that is narrow at both ends. It lies off the southeastern coast of mainland Asia, across the Taiwan Straits from Mainland China-- a solitary island on the western edge of the Pacific Ocean. To the north lies Japan and Okinawa, to the south is the Philippines. Many airlines fly to Taiwan, helping make it the perfect travel destination.
Taiwan lies on the western edge of the Pacific "rim of fire," and continuous tectonic movements have created majestic peaks, rolling hills and plains, basins, coastlines, and other wonders. Taiwan sees climates of many types: tropical, sub-tropical, and temperate, providing clear differentiation between the different seasons. There are about 18,400 species of wildlife on the island, with more than 20% belonging to rare or endangered species; among these are the land-locked salmon, Taiwan mountain goat, Formosan rock monkey, Formosan black bear, blue magpie, Mikado pheasant, Hsuehshan grass lizard, and many more.
The government has established 6 national parks and 13 national scenic areas to preserve Taiwan's best natural ecological environment and cultural sites. Take in the splendor and sheer heights of the cliffs at Taroko Gorge; take a ride on the Alishan train--one of only three mountain railways in the world--and experience the breathtaking sunset and sea of clouds; hike up to the summit of Northeast Asia's highest peak, Jade Mountain. You can also soak up the sun in Kending, Asia's version of Hawaii; stand at the edge of Sun Moon Lake; traipse through the East Rift Valley; or visit the offshore islands of Kinmen and Penghu. It's fun in capital letters as well as an awesome journey of natural discovery!
The cultural aspects also not to be missed. The blending of Hakka, Taiwanese, and mainland Chinese cultures has produced a rich plethora of cultural and social color. Whether it is religion, architecture, language, living habits, or food, it's just one big exciting melting pot! Food is the best representative of this cultural mixing and matching. Aside from cuisines from different parts of the mainland such as Zhejiang, Hunan, Guangdong, Yunnan, Shanghai, Beijing, Sichuan, and others, there is also the local Taiwanese cuisine as well as the local delicacies of each area.
