    2020 Land Rover Defender

    The new Defender is being featured in more and more teasers by Land Rover to generate more buzz. It’s not your typical shadowy teaser image as the adjacent photo gallery was shot in Africa where a near-production prototype had to go through some serious hurdles in Kenya. Together with British non-profit organization Tusk Trust, the resurrected off-road SUV was used across the 14,000-hectare Borana Conservancy by wildlife managers to support conservation operations. Approximately two and a half years have passed since the last old-school Defender was built at the factory in Solihull, and we’re now just a few months away from its completely new successor. Land Rover will allegedly unveil the next-gen model in September and will have the iconic off-roader on sale soon. Like its predecessor, the revamped Defender will spawn a great variety of derivatives, from barebones off-roaders to luxurious and powerful versions in a bid to lure in a wider clientele. We’ve spotted it multiple times in short- and long-wheelbase configurations, but we’ve also been hearing rumors of a pickup truck with a single cab setup among other versions.

    Boleh Land Election 2018

    Let me starts the discussion here as the other thread discussion on funnelling of funds. Malaysian government declares polling day a public holiday KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia's federal government has declared May 9, polling day, a public holiday. This is to allow all Malaysians to fulfil their responsibilities as voters, said the Prime Minister's Office (PMO) in a statement on Wednesday (Apr 11). “The declaration on the public holiday is made based on Section 8 of the Public Holidays Act 1951 for Peninsular Malaysia and the Labuan Federal Territory,” said the statement. The Malaysian Election Commission had on Tuesday announced dates for nomination and polling day for the country's 14th general election. Many had expressed concern that having the vote on a Wednesday, Malaysia's first weekday poll in nearly two decades, would affect turnout at the ballot boxes. Malaysians had reacted to announcement of the weekday polling date by taking to social media to offer transportation and funds to those who wanted to return to their hometowns to cast their ballots. Several Malaysian companies on Tuesday also declared May 9 a holiday for staff. Read more at https://www.channelnewsasia.com/news/asia/malaysia-election-polling-day-public-holiday-10127468

    This is how the new Defender looks like

    Someone has posted an image of the upcoming Land Rover Defender on Instagram. The long-awaited SUV, is seen here free or almost free of any camouflage. According to the Instagram user, the photo was snapped on the film set of the latest James Bond film where the all new Defender is set to star. We are already aware it will look different from the previous-generation Defender thanks to the official teasers from Land Rover but from this photo, the Defender does look a little softer and more of a fashion statement than a proper off roader. Of course, Land Rover will disagree and point us to the impressive amount of ground clearance shown. Set to be launched at the Frankfurt Auto Show next month, the SUV is rumored to be launched in 110 guise first with engine options consisting of three petrol models available, namely a 296bhp 2.0-litre, a 398bhp plug-in hybrid, and a 395bhp 3.0-litre six-cylinder.

  11. Toyota Rocks SEMA with 220 MPH Twin Turbo Land Speed Cruiser Land Speed Cruiser Set to Become World’s Fastest SUV TORRANCE, Calif., (November 1, 2016)—Broad shouldered and confident, the vaunted Toyota Land Cruiser authored the rulebook for Sport Utility Vehicles. This year, the Land Speed Cruiser will write a new chapter in the SUV’s history book. Debuting at Toyota’s 2016 Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show display, the Land Speed Cruiser is a low-slung, purpose-built sled of a vehicle capable of generating more than 2,000 hp and a top speed of 220 mph that leaves most sports cars in the dust. “From the outside, the Land Speed Cruiser appears quite normal, quite subtle,” said motorsports technical center manager Chuck Wade, who built this vehicle with his team of engineers. “This is what makes it so special. Every single system and component has been touched. The trick is getting the body back onto the heavily modified frame.” The build team surgically extracted the outer shell of a 2016 Land Cruiser. Beneath the surface of the Land Speed Cruiser lies the rugged durability of Toyota’s 3UR-FE 5.7-liter V8. A volleyball-sized Garrett turbocharger flanks each bank of cylinders and breathes directly through front inlets in the specially designed aerodynamic hood. The engine is linked to an ATI transmission. “I love the challenge of taking a vehicle and making it stronger, faster,” Wade added. “Making something beyond outrageous keeps me coming back for more.” “With the Land Speed Cruiser, we are breaking all of the normal conventions of what an SUV should be,” said Steve Appelbaum, Toyota Motor Sales national egagement marketing manager. “This is a vehicle is truly a feat of engineering.” The Land Speed Cruiser is Toyota’s answer to the extreme. The 2017 Land Cruiser represents the present, and the first generation 1961 Land Cruiser harkens back to the past. These three distinctly different Land Cruisers—along with numerous other Toyota, specialty vehicles—can be seen in the Toyota display booth (#24800) in Central Hall and on the Patio Annex of the Las Vegas Convention Center, November 1-4, 2016. .......................................... The Toyota Land Cruiser is known for many things, like toughness and durability, but speed is not among the SUV's chief attributes. Until now, that is. Toyota traveled to the SEMA Show in Las Vegas with a rather special version of its Land Cruiser in tow -- the Land Speed Cruiser. And, as that name implies, the Land Speed Cruiser is very fast. According to Toyota, the Land Speed Cruiser will top out at 220mph, besting most super cars available today. Getting a behemoth SUV to travel at that speed was no easy task however, requiring significant modification to the truck's chassis and suspension setup. The Land Cruiser's 381-horsepower 5.7L V8 also required a shot in order to prepare it for Land Speed Cruiser duty. Although the same basic architecture remains, Toyota was able to lift the V8's horsepower rating to more than 2,000 horsepower with the help of a pair of turbochargers said to be the size of volleyballs. A special transmission was installed to handle the power. "With the Land Speed Cruiser, we are breaking all of the normal conventions of what an SUV should be," said Steve Appelbaum, Toyota Motor Sales national marketing manager. "This is a vehicle is truly a feat of engineering."

  13. Yo, Hainan brothers @Jman888, @Dleodleo, @Ender, @Uncle2 all bought land in Hainan ? Now acquired by gahmen to build rocket launch site. 海南文昌建发射中心 祖宅地被征用痛失429万 七旬狮城妇申诉,海南文昌建发射中心,结果面积达8580平方米的祖宅地被征用,痛失逾429万元,打了四年官司,至今仍追讨不回赔偿。 海南文昌航天发射中心于2013年建成,但却引发了拆迁纠纷。几名祖籍海南的新加坡人告诉本报,他们在文昌市龙楼镇的祖宅,于2011年被征用拆除后,当地政府并未给予合理赔偿。 苦主郑春梅(70岁)告诉《新明日报》记者,四间祖宅加上田地的面积达8580平方米,全被政府征用,每100平方米的土地价值约5万新元,估计损失逾429万新元。 她说,文昌市政府拆私宅时没给予通知,之后没赔偿,还要求他们支付大约8万元人民币(1万6000新元)购买土地建宅。 “由于损失太大,加上是祖先辛苦建造的家园,我和其他人决定打官司追讨赔偿。如今一打就是四年官司,身心疲惫。” 她说,父亲当时把所赚来的钱全部用来买地,如今被征用,一生的积蓄就血本无归。“我们希望当地政府能重视这个问题,依法归还我们一个公道。” 据悉,24个乡村的1000多间房屋被拆除,其中不住在国内的中国国民、海外华人以及港澳台公民占409户。一共有17名人起诉文昌政府,当中4名是新加坡人。 http://www.zaobao.com.sg/znews/singapore/story20171103-808168

    Land Rover workshop & stockist

    Hi, anyone know of workshop and stockist for Land Rover?
  16. Since quite a few of us here have tenanted units, thought this would be a better platform to discuss this. Been leasing out my units for a while and can compile a list based on anecdotal experience: 1. Get to know your tenant - It goes a long way. I normally invite them out to dinner if they are new to the country and get to know them better. This warms up the relationship so that there is mutual respect and understanding. - Check on them regularly for the 1st few months to see if there are issues and they have settled in. Most of mine have been Japs and they make excellent tenants 2. Involvement in your property - get involved in your property so that you are above on what is happening inside. Try to attend AGMs as well as be part of the council if the opportunity arises. - Makes the knowledge of your property and areas more transparent so that should the tenant need help, you are right there with the necessary guidance. 3. Do your homework - if you are a green horn at leasing out, then you may engage a agent at first. Know the TA and the entire due process. - Learn how to manage and draft your own TA. There are standard templates out there for you to take cue from. - After the 1st lease, best to do your own so that the 2nd comm need not be part of the payment needed to be taken into account. 4. Care of your property - If this is the first property, then ensure that after 4/5 years you do a refresh of the unit if need be. Do repairs, works so as to keep it up to the mark - Manage defects well and itemise them and follow up regularly so that it is maintained That's all I think I have off hand but the gurus like @throttle2 and @sp4wn can add on and oh, poonde @turboflat4 can ass @ttl1976 you can come in later bro......and share some insights Thanks and do add on so that we can learn.
  17. A short work trip to the land of Putin. Tiring but very fascinating. Made some video clips. Landed into -1 deg with some snow. Not cold by Moscow standards, but I'm from the tropics. Cloud cover was very dense and I couldn't see anything outside the window until the plane had almost touched down. Before the flights, some video clips from Changi Airport. This is the Kinectic Rain exhibit at Terminal 1. This has been around for some time but this is the first time I stared at it for a bit. This is the full size X-wing fighter exhibit at Changi Terminal 3. More to come, stay tuned.

    Johor To Seize Malay Land From Non-Malays

    Malaysia boleh ............ My friend had ever warned me with regards to buying houses in MY, they could seize back anytime.... Yahoo news: Johor to seize Malay land from non-Malays NUSAJAYA: The Johor government will seize Malay reserve land which had fallen into the hands of non-Malays. Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Khaled Nordin said several action plans would be enforced to seize land which rightfully belonged to Malays. “This shows that we did not neglect our responsibility in defending or increasing the size of Malay reserve land,” he said to questions from Datuk Maulizan Bujang (BN-Tiram), Ayub Jamil (BN-Rengit) and A. Aziz Ismail (BN-Senggarang) at the Johor state assembly sitting here yesterday. However, he did not elaborate on what the action plans were nor the size of Malay reserve land which had changed hands. Khaled said Johor had 432,157ha of Malay reserve land as of last September, compared with 87,536ha in 1957. “In the Iskandar Malaysia economic region, the size of Malay reserve land is 23,517ha, compared to 1,921ha in 1957. “These include land in Johor Baru and in Kulaijaya. “This clearly shows that the acreage of Malay reserve land in the economic region has grown in size, and not the other way round. “In fact, the size of Malay reserve land has grown by 12 times as compared to 1957,” he said.

  20. Malaysia busted smuggling syndicate in 'biggest scandal' involving civil servants 468 195 0 1PRINTEMAIL One of the Customs officers being escorted to the court in Petaling Jaya on Sept 4, 2014. -- PHOTO: THE NEW STRAITS TIMES KUALA LUMPUR - An anti-corruption taskforce in Malaysia has uncovered what it believed could be "the biggest scandal involving civil servants". Investigators remanded 24 members of a syndicate running an intricate network at the Port Klang Free Zone (PKFZ) that is believed to have cost the government RM4 billion (S$1.57 billion) in lost revenue, the New Straits Times reported on Friday. Among those arrested were a state customs director and 11 personnel of various ranks from the customs department, said the newspaper. Twelve others were also arrested, including company owners and lorry drivers. Investigation into the syndicate started in 2011, according to the report. The syndicate allegedly left a long money trail that allowed investigators to blow the lid on their illicit operations. "Their lavish lifestyle was among what gave them away. They couldn't have been more blatant in displaying their ill-gotten wealth," one of the investigators said. Among the things seized were 10 luxury cars, including a Porsche, several Audis and Mercedes, and RM3 million in cash. Investigators have also frozen 200 bank accounts allegedly used by the syndicate's network. "RM1.67 billion worth of cigarettes and alcohol were brought into the country under their watch since 2011... but from that amount, only a total value of RM420 million was declared,'' said Datuk Seri Mohd Shukri Abdull, deputy chief commissioner (Operations) of the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC). "Investigations had shown that the goods were brought in from Scotland, Sweden, Indonesia, Thailand, China, India and Cambodia." The commission is looking at making more arrests soon, said the report. The Star newspaper said the smuggled items were being sold in Malaysia as well as in neighbouring countries. The New Straits Times quoted Shukri as saying this could be just the tip of the iceberg as the estimated losses calculated were based on investigations into only 10 of 70 companies that operate in PKFZ. "The Customs Department and the Inland Revenue Board are crunching the numbers to identify exactly how much the government had lost to this syndicate and how it had affected the market trend." Shukri said the syndicate had allowed into the country high quality cigarettes and liquor, kept them at the PKFZ and released the goods after their minimal tax value were declared. The syndicate used cash in their transactions with importers, and had under their payroll, a large number of people, including the port's gatekeepers, he added. The Malay Mail quoted former PKFZ chairman Datuk Lee Hwa Beng as saying the Royal Malaysian Customs Department should not be the only agency in control of the zone as such practices could lead to abuse. "The free zone area is fenced from the entrance and the Customs is in control of the entire area," he said. During his tenure as chairman between 2009 to 2011, all entry points were heavily guarded by the Customs while auxiliary police served as back up. "Security screening was strict that even I, as chairman, was required to register and collect a pass at the checkpoint to get into the area. I feel there is too much control by one party," the website quoted Lee as saying. He described the zone as a "gold mine'' as it functions as a warehouse and storage area for goods brought into the country via Port Klang. "Companies stock their goods there before they are sent out. This gives room for wrongdoings," he said, adding that such situations created an opportunity for illegal activities especially during off-peak hours. http://www.straitstimes.com/news/asia/south-east-asia/story/malaysia-busted-smuggling-syndicate-biggest-scandal-involving-civil-#xtor=CS1-10

    A closer look into the local motoring scene

    The LTA recently revealed a Land Transport Masterplan which maps out enhancements to the public transport as well as road management. We look at the some intrinsic details and finds out what they can mean to us. Naturally, one of the key highlights of the plan lies in the public transport sector. Both the rail and road systems will receive substantial boost, such as extending bus services to more areas, giving more priorities to buses, as well as an ambitious plan to double the island's rail network by 2030. For a moment, the plan does seem to have hit the nail on head. But we reckon there is more than meets the eye. Our rail system has been plagued by frequent service faults and disruptions. Even with the current network, train operators have been struggling to keep maintenance up to the mark, and statistics have proven this point. There were four cases of service disruptions in October alone, and no less than nine cases in previous three months. On that point, imagine the amount of workload on the maintenance with the doubled network, which will likely lead to more disruptions if all things remain constant. Then, there is the mindset of the local commuters. A study has shown that locals still prefer private mode of transport. And if nothing is done to adjust this preference, the enhanced public transport network will just be a 'white elephant'. Next, the plan aims to address road congestion by putting ERP gantries on major roads (Bukit Timah Road, Holland Road etc.). At this instance, one question springs to our minds: If the current 71 gantries placed on expressways and arterial roads have limited effect on congestion, how will adding gantries to major roads help? And hence, the big question remains: Do you think the master plan will succeed?
