And the winner is....


me! During the media trrip to Japan, organised by Isuzu Malaysia, 18 journalists had a go at being the most fuel efficient driver. Must be some Scottish blood in me as I was the one using the least fuel on the test round. We drove the Isuzu 8 x 4 Giga. Actually, except for the punch when you hit the accelerator, it is pretty much like driving a car.

Liked Hokkaido in Japan. Very much like Germany in Summer with farmers tending to their fields, long evenings and rolling hills. Just that the volcanos gave me a bit of the creeps. After all, they do erupt every now and then...

A differnt view of Hong Kong


This week I was in Hong Kong to speak at an event, organised by the Government, to celebrate the 15th anniversary of the handover of Hong Kong to China. Thanks to HKTDC I was flying Business class on Cathay Pacific. Now the problem is that I won't want to fly Economy Class again. The lounges were really cool: uninterrupted internet. Not to mention the free flow of coffee (and chanpagne of course).

The Grand Hyatt in Wan Chai offered an amazing view (see above) and easy access to the conference where I was speaking. The only issue was my delayed flight. Had to spend 10 hours in the said lounge on the way to Hong Kong.

Now back and working my way through tons of mail, email and things to do...
Ready for the next vacation!
