The AirAsia Story: How a Young Airline Made It Possible for Everyone to Fly and Became a Runaway Success Practically Overnight by Sen Ze & Jayne Ng

This book is about the story between AirAsia with the CEO Tony Fernandes. It also reveals Air Asia’s challenges, hurdles, bumps and how it overcomes all the problems.   

AirAsia is a Malaysian low-cost airline headquartered in Kuala Lumpur. It has been named as the world’s best low-cost airline and a pioneer of low-cost travel in Asia - Wikipedia

Through this book, I had surprise to know that…

1. Tony Fernandes was a Vice President of Times Warner Music Southeast Asia (Musicman) before he joined for AirAsia.

2. Tune Air, a company Tony and his investors set up, took over AirAsia for RM 1, together with its 2 Boeing 737-300s, a tiny route network and nearly RM40 million in debts.

“Believe the unbelievable, dream the impossible and don’t take ‘no’ for an answer,” was how Tony described AirAsia’s survival in a talk he delivered on business insights at the Singapore Institute of International Affairs (SIIA) in August 2005.

Tony once joked at an interview that people only recognized him because of the cap he was wearing, adding that, “…if I take off this cap, you will see me as just another Indian guy!”

“There is a fine line between managing the ego and having no ego. You’re got to have an ego. If you don’t have ego, you won’t be successful, but [you need to know how to manage] that ego.” He advises.

Previously, eight out of ten people on the street could not afford to travel overseas due to the high cost of air transportation, but that does not mean they never wished to travel. With AirAsia and the other low-cost carriers on the scene today, the sky is suddenly packed with tourists.

Sabah: Kota Kinabalu

Picture source: Skyscrapercity.com
Kota Kinabalu (formerly known as Jesselton) is the capital of the state of Sabah which is located in East Malaysia. It is also the capital of the West Coast Division of Sabah. The city is located along the northwest coast of Borneo facing South China Sea- Wikipedia

For me, Kota Kinabalu or known as KK is not a new city for me as I had been spent about 4 years in there as I studied at Universiti Malaysia Sabah which is a local university. Although I had been there for 4 years, KK still is a city that I need to explore more as I only get well about the town due to limitation of transport during study times.

Ramadan Bazaar 2013 @ Labuan Walk

Date: 10 July 2013 (Wednesday)
Venue: Labuan Walk

This month is fasting month for Muslim in Malaysia so there will be a lot of food stalls set up around Malaysia. At my place, the huge Ramadan Bazaar located at Labuan Walk and it opens from 2 pm until 7 pm just before the time where Muslims break their fast.

There will be a lot of food selling at Ramadan Bazaar such as noodles, rice, satay (grill meat), drinks, dessert, burger and many more. As I needed to wait for the stall to be close (click here to know what happen to me) so I had much of times to take a look at this bazaar. 

At this Ramdan Bazaar, I had spotted some foreigners came to this bazaar and took a photo of the food at there. It is a good place to know more about Labuan especially the food.

The times I went around, the bazaar was full of people to buy food. I like this place as it has a place to let people sit down after tired walk around the bazaar or to eat the food which located at the center of Labuan Walk.

It has a “smoke heaven” at Ramadan Bazaar (picture as below) which the entire stall that sells grill food will located at there.  At there, you can find Satay (a dish of seasoned, skewered and grilled meat), grilled chicken and others. It is also the place where my car was stuck  park at there (~.~)

Coming out from “smoke heaven”, your cloth will has a smell of smoke as there is full of big smoke because every stall at there busy grill food for sell. 

After sunset (about 6.15 pm), it was fast-breaking times and can heard pray sound came from mosque. Many people especially Malay sat down and ate the food at Labuan Walk. At this bazaar, I just brought ABC (mixed ice) for drink and did not buy any food as my mum had been prepared dinner at home.

Move or Not Move?

10 July 2013 was the first day of fasting for Muslims in Malaysia so Ramadan Bazaar (food bazaar) usually will held at Labuan Walk during fasting month.

As I always park my car near with Labuan Walk before go to work so I had concerned that whether the food bazaar will take place at my parking place or not. In the morning, as usual I park the car near with Labuan Walk because I did not see has any road ban to park at there.


When I was on the way back to my car after finished working, I had saw that many stalls around Labuan Walk and started to worry that will my car be affected so I hurry went to my car.

My car.....
Unfortunately that my car had been stuck at between 2 stalls and it is impossible for me to drive my car out of this place as I am not a skillful driver. I had met with one of my friend and he also said that drive away the car need to get the help of the owner of stalls to move in a little bit of their stalls. As I did not want to disturb with the business of the bazaar so I choose to wait for the stalls close out which around 7 pm while call my parents for help.

How to move?
As I need to wait for the closing hour of the bazaar so I had went around the bazaar to wait. Finally, about 6.45 pm, it was less people getting around the bazaar and my dad helped me to drive away the car. Yeah!

What can I do?
Although I need to wait for about 1 hour at food bazaar, try thinking of positive way that actually I also gain something from that incident which as below:-

a) Meet with cousin and some old friends at there and have a short chit chat
b) Explode Ramadan Bazaar and takes some photos that will be coming soon at my next post

How full is your cup? By J M Sampath

How full is your cup?
This book has a vivid illustration with colour to each page which looks very attractive. This book is a collection of 64 thoughtful short stories which will make you gain deeper reflections of life hidden between the lines of the story.

Inside view
Eat your own fruit
Some disciples once complained to their guru, “You tell us stories, but you never reveal their meaning to us.”

The guru replied, “How would you like it if someone offered you a fruit and chewed it before giving it to you?”

How do you learn to draw your own interpretations of life than live by others’ interpretations?
What holds you from thinking beyond what has been thought?

The filthy neighbor
A: You should see how dirty my neighbor is, and her house! Even her children are always dirty! It is almost a disgrace to be living in the same neighborhood. Take a look at the clothes she has hung outside on the line!

B: I think the clothes are quite clean…the streaks are on your windows!

How often do you clean your glasses before you see others?
How objective are the glasses you wear?

Every morning when the Prophet passed by an old woman’s house, she would empty a basket of rubbish on his head from this upper storey of her house. He never once remonstrated with her about this. One day, when the Prophet passed by the house, no rubbish fell on his head.

Thinking the old woman must be ailing, he went upstairs to inquire and found her ill in bed. When she discovered that the Prophet had come to meet her, she began to weep, “I ill-treated you all these years and now you come to inquire after my health!”

Ultimately she became one of his true followers.

what is the extent of your tolerance?
Will it be possible for you to care for those who hurt you?
What are the preconditions you place on your relationships?

Latvija Stamps

When saw for these stamps, I was so curious for the country named Latvija because it was my first times to heard about it. To know more about this country, the best way is through Wikipedia.

It is boarded to the north by Estonia, to the south by Lithuania, to the east by Russia and to the southeast by Belarus.
