google doodle art


official google logo (present)

for most of you guys who has been using google for a long time, you would found out that the interesting google logo changes occasionally through out the year according to celebrations, holidays or any special occasion.
for me, google is my starting homepage for my web browser.
therefore i always looking for new google doodle.


Google has had several logos since its renaming from “BackRub”. The current official Google logo was designed by Ruth Kedar, and is a logotype based on the Catull typeface. The company also includes various modifications and/or humorous features, such as cartoon modifications, of their logo for use on holidays, birthdays of famous people, and major events, such as the Olympics. These special logos, designed by Dennis Hwang, have become known as Google Doodles. –wikipedia


first google logo (1998)


the first ever google doodle (1998)


here some special google logo for 2008.






google’s season’s greetings logo (december 2008)


google’s thanksgiving’s day logo (27-november-2008)


google’s helloween’s day logo (31-october-2008)

for more google’s special’s day logo click here.


The first Google Doodle was a reference to the Burning Man Festival of 1998. The doodle was designed by Larry Page and Sergey Brin to notify users of their absence in case the servers crashed. Subsequent Google Doodles were designed by an outside contractor, until Larry and Sergey asked then-intern Dennis Hwang to design a logo for Bastille Day in 2000. Hwang has been designing the Google Doodles ever since. –wikipedia

so to google team, keep up the good artwork!
just love it.

selamat pengantin baru mawi ekin


Sekalung tahniah diucapkan buat mawi dan ekin yang selamat diijab-kabulkan di masjid sultan abu bakar johor bahru pada hari sabtu lepas 20 disember 2008.
Mudah-mudahan ikatan yang dicipta berkekalan hingga akhir hayat.
Bukan mudah bagi pasangan suami isteri lebih-lebih lagi kedua-duanya adalah pasangan artis.
Perlayaran sebagai suami isteri bertambah cabaran dan pelbagai onak duri perlu ditempuhi sebagai suami isteri.
Moga mawi dan ekin boleh menjadi contoh teladan buat pasangan artis suami isteri.
Bukan hendak melemahkan semangat "raja sehari" yang baru mawi ekin.
Sudah menjadi satu kelaziman di mana peminat dan wartawan hiburan sememanganya akan mengikuti kehidupan peribadi pasangan suami isteri artis tersebut.
Segala cerita kehidupan peribadi pasti akan terpampang di dada-dada akhbar.
Bagi yang lemah pasti akan mengundang pecah belah di antara suami isteri yang mana akan mengundang perpecahan (perceraian) antara keduanya
Sekali gus akan menjadi buah mulut peminat dan akan mensensasikan akhbar hiburan utama negara.
Percayalah perkahwinan itu indahn namun segala onak dan duri harus diharungi bersama dengan tabah dan sabar

romeo and juliet forever love – until death do us apart

ROME, Feb. 7, 2007 – They died young and, by the looks of it, in love. Two 5,000-year-old skeletons found locked in an embrace near the city where Shakespeare set the star-crossed tale “Romeo and Juliet” have sparked theories the remains of a far more ancient love story have been found.(source)

“forever love” exists indeed.

Wartawan internet paling ramai dipenjara
Dec 5, 08 2:16pm

Wartawan dalam talian dan penulis blog kini lebih ramai mendiami penjara di seluruh dunia berbanding petugas media bukan Internet, lapor satu pertubuhan kebebasan media hari ini.

Jawatankuasa Melindungi Wartawan (CPJ), dalam bancian mutakhirnya, mendapati 45 peratus petugas media yang ditahan terdiri daripada editor dan wartawan dalam talian, serta pengendali blog.

“Wartawan dalam talian membentuk kumpulan profesional (media) buat pertama kali dalam bancian penjara CPJ,” kata pengarah eksekutif pertubuhan yang berpangkalan di New York itu, Joel Simon.

Daripada 125 wartawan yang dipenjara tahun ini, sekurang- kurangnya 56 wartawan Internet – pertama kali mengatasi wartawan akhbar yang mengalami nasib serupa.

Pemberita dalam talian yang pertama dikenakan hukuman penjara pada 1997.

Kumpulan berikutnya, 53 orang, terdiri editor akhbar, wartawan mdia cetak dan jurugambar.

Tahun lepas, 127 wartawan dihukum penjara di seluruh dunia.

Tambah Simon, sejak dua tahun lepas, pertubuhannya bersama syarikat Internet, pelabur dan kumpulan hak asasi berjuang mendesak kerajaan agar membuka ruang kebebasan di alam siber.

Dalam tempoh tersebut, kumpulan itu membentuk Global Network Initiative atau Inisiatif Jaringan Sejagat yang menyediakan garis panduan kepada syarikat-syarikat telekomunikasi dan Internet menjaga hak kebebasan di dunia maya.

Yahoo, Google dan Microsoft termasuk dalam jaringan tersebut, tambah CPJ.

Menurut laporan itu lagi, China masih lagi negara yang paling ramai memenjarakan wartawan diikuti oleh Cuba, Burma, Eritrea dan Uzbekistan daripada 29 negara yang berbuat demikian.

Kelima-lima negara ini terus-menerus berbuat demikian sepanjang penelitian CPJ, laporan itu dipetik.

the word “freedom of speech” is no longer suitable for the reporter that has been prison, it should be “prison of speech”.

Some Basic Facts About Formula One (F1)

F1 car is made up of 80,000 components, if it were assembled 99.9% correctly, it would still start the race with 80 things wrong

When an F1 driver hits the brakes on his car he experiences retardation or deceleration comparable to a regular car driving through a BRICK wall at 300km/h

F1 car can go from 0 to 160 km/h AND back to 0 in FOUR seconds

F1 car engines last only for about 2 hours of racing mostly before blowing up on the other hand we expect our engines to last us for a decent 20yrs on an average and they quite faithfully DO….that’s the extent to which the engines are pushed to perform…

An average F1 driver looses about 4kgs of weight after just one race due to the prolonged exposure to high G forces and temperatures for little over an hour (Yeah that’s right!!!)

At 550kg a F1 car is less than half the weight of a Mini.

To give you an idea of just how important aerodynamic design and added down force can be, small planes can take off at slower speeds than F1 cars travel on the track.

Without aerodynamic down force, high-performance racing cars have sufficient power to produce wheel spin and loss of control at 160 kph. They usually race at over 300 km/h.

In a street course race like the Monaco grand prix, the down force provides enough suction to lift manhole covers. Before the race all of the manhole covers on the streets have to be welded down to prevent this from happening!

The refuelers used in F1 can supply 12 liters of fuel per second. This means it would take just 4 seconds to fill the tank of an average 50 liter family car. They use the same refueling rigs used on US military helicopters today.

TOP F1 pit crews can refuel and change tyres in around 3 seconds. It took me 8 sec to read above point

During the race the tyres lose weight! Each tyre loses about 0.5 kg in weight due to wear.

Normal tyres last 60 000 – 100 000 km. Racing tyres are designed to last 90 – 120 km.

dry-weather F1 tyre reaches peak operating performance (best grip) when tread temperature is between 900C and 1200C.(Water boils boils at 100C remember) At top speed, F1 tyres rotate 50 times a second.

And that’s not Magic…
Its only a game…!

New Proton’s MPV Spyshot


the convoy

1st test car

2nd test car

satria neo test car?

i took these pictures as on my way to banting town.
the convoy consisted of one persona, two test mpv, and a satria neo.
(hmm.. did proton plan to have a face lift to satria neo also? i didn’t know.)
as usual the test car was black-out in color in most of the exterior.
it look like almost like naza citra. (not as big as i thought it will be)
but i only managed to take the rear view of the mpv as i drove passed the convoy.
when do proton plan to launch their new “family” member to the market?
how much it will cost? did anyone have any ideas?

here is the show room mockup spyshot of the mpv.


side view


front view


rear view

can’t wait for the launch.
ps.: hopefully proton will tackle the quality issue!
