Five Turkish Airlines crew among the crash dead at Schiphol airport, by David Charter
Five crew members, including three pilots, were among the nine people killed when a Turkish Airways flight crashed on its descent into Amsterdam’s Schiphol airport.
The names of the dead are expected to be officially released today but reports emerged that the three pilots were Captain Hasan Tahsin Arisan, Murat Sezer and Olgay Ozgur.
The Boeing 737-800 aircraft, which was carrying 127 passengers and seven crew from Istanbul, crashed into a ploughed field at 10.30am local time yesterday, narrowly missing a highway. It broke into three pieces but, luckily, did not catch fire.
Oh Lord, bless those who has been killed during the crash. Bless their innocent death and may their soul rest in peace in your arms…. Amen.
Monday, 1st September 2008.
It was raining very heavy around 3pm in the afternoon!
A very unusual rain and it was so heavy the road down my house was flooded. Wow! It has been a while since I last saw this similar flood. This happens every heavy downpour…
My dad has to go out and check it out.. haha
The Toyota Unser stopped there for a while then it moves again.. haha
The road in front of my house is an uphill one. So the flood is only at the bottom and only about first 7-8 houses were affected with minimal damage to their front yard.
Picture taken from top and bottom of the slight slope…
We used to complain to MPK until now also we all fed-up already.
This is flood is due to the overflowing of monsoon drain along the main road.
But, not only this part of the main road was affected but as I heard, all around my “Taman” also affected with small flash floods.
The flood done its job by disrupting the traffic and many cars “died” because they tried to cross the flood area thinking that their vehicle can float on water! -_-
But some champions are really champions lah! I totally salute them! I just charge through the flood. I don’t even dare to do it.. mana tau die in the middle and all the water starts gushing in!
The highest water level is about my knee length! So the high!…
So… Like Father, Like Son. My brother and I go and check out too! Watch this video of the flood around my area. My brother and I were busy checking out the flood, taking picture and being a busy body.
During the heavy downpour, our electricity was cut off. Lucky it was raining and it was pretty cool in the day. There was no electricity from about 4pm onwards until god knows when. Because when I went to bed, about midnight, there was no electricity STILL!… I called TNB several times until I got so pissed off, I went to bed.
The irony of this blackout was that, along the whole stretch of houses on the same road, only about 9 houses were affected by this stupid blackout! Reason why is that our cable could be from a different sub-station! KNNCCB! Why like that? Kinda stupid right, we are all in the same township. The whole of Berkeley got electricity, but only a few houses doesn’t have? Weird!
Last time, we used to have candles only when there is blackout. So it was time for me to play candle back then. Putting them up in every possible corner of the house to light the whole area up. Walking around to make sure the candle is lit. Nowdays, we have all the portable emergency light which are rechargeable. Mom bought like a few of them for the use of the house. VERY HANDY I would say.
I can’t get online to finish my work, and that’s the whole reason why I am back to Klang is because I can online. Then, without electricity, that defeats the purpose of watching DVD which I bought earlier of the day, hoping that when the electricity comes back I can enjoy some kick ass movie! -_-
In the end, I entertained myself with my nephews’ toys. I AM SO SERIOUS! Play that “learning” computer thing and also with the helicopter I bought, which can fly when the string is pulled. Damn childish. I know!
Oh wells.. what’s the worst that can happen eh?
I’ve been searching the night for a good source of flood news.
I’ve searched through TheStar, NST, TheSun and Googling. I don’t find the much needed
news that I want to know. Which location is the worst hit by the recent flood?
While a search on TheSun gave me last year’s news… -_-
TheStar has a video updated on Floods in Pahang, Kelantan, Johor and Terengganu.
I’ve got considerably good amount of news coverage but not intense.
I even went to InfoBanjir, website of Department of Irrigation and Drainage Malaysia.
Nothing good could be taken from this site, as I don’t even know how to interpret most
of the things posted in the website.
That’s how bad it is to find such needed information during a disaster.
Why I need this information?
I am on my break now and since I have nothing better to do, why not I do something
good for my country and my fellow Malaysians brothers and sisters.
I am planning a campaign which I think I would love to call it “Ten-2-Help”.
Would love to run this initiative if I have enough support from every corner.
Initial rough plan is to run through this campaign throughout the bloggersphere to
garner a relief support in cash to be exchanged into kind for the flood victims.
Cash from as low as RM 10 for a start but no obligations to start at RM10.
Cash collected will be then used purchase items much needed by the victims like
- Bottled Water
- Food Items and etc.
Gonna work this out with few major organization… See how things goes..
Do I have your support?
Shall we blam the idiots who caused this horror to KLites..
Oh.. it is so the S M O K Y!!
I had difficulty breathing.. and my eyes abit the hurt..
I’m so lazy to walk outside..
Even when I’m in the office also I can smell the haze..!!
Look how terrible our neighbour is in helping each other…
Yea.. help us die faster with your open burnings..
UK flights on HALT!!
I just got an alert that a bomb attempt was being foiled..
Hah.. what a genius for these terrors to bomb LHR…
Made me wait in the office because of your dumb work!!
Made my crew can’t fly to UK!!
GIVES ME MORE HEADACHE!! in the flight arrangements..
For more on UK TERROR ALERT.. please see the source of news below..
I’ve been seeing bugs..!!
Bugs in my room!!
All sorts of bugs..
Red ant!! HUGE ONE!!.. those that eat alot of dunno wat..!!
Then, there is also small red ant crawling from my new laptop.
Company’s laptop!! Why?!!
I had the same experience with my own personal laptop as
well when i bought it last time..
My room is in a mess!! Total utter mess.!!
I’m just too lazy to clean it up!!
bah.. shall leave it till next week and i’ll run a round of spring
cleaning again.. which will take a day!! whole day last i took.
Car got some clutch problem.. Guess another RM 300-500 will
be burned just for the repair.. oh well.. bugger again!
Loft was full jam packed with people after caren’s party..
Hmm… and i went there late and table been given away..
Zul came and said, “Ah… apasal lambat.. !!” ahha
He sent a mass msg after that night thanking his friends and
regular customers.. heh and i replied by “next time 50% off”
Time to sleep now… tmr another big day to run here and there..
got one crew need to fly back to US, cause wife in ICU.
gotta send a ticket to KLIA… driving dad’s car..
anyways.. nite nite all..
It has been two days.. 2 DAYS!!
The human traffic has been increasing to a tremendous level.
It is crazy.. Summore Subang got massive rain and thunderstorm which led
to a halt in the KTM and that is why there is a huge traffic at Sentral.
But, not only KTM is facing the big huge traffic, even LRT and Monorail
are having the same kinda traffic increase..
It seems that KLites want to save some ringgit to make ends meet.
Oh well, but still with the rise of fuel price, STILL there are people who
take on driving to KL. My gosh.. the ammount of cars.
What I wouldn’t want to see is that the numbers of motorcycles increase.
It will make us end up like Vietnam where 2-wheels are more than 4-wheels
But, at least in Vietnam, they 2-wheels rider or operator are more civilized
and they respect each other on the road.
HERE!!.. THEY ARE JUST DUMBSHIT!!.. I want to run one of them down
one day!!.. Stupid MAT REMPITs!!! ARGHHHhhhh.. SO ANNOYING!!
Did anyone of you realize the kambing back of the haze?
Did the Air Pollution Index increase to a critical level.
Last I check on Dept of Environment website, it is not critical, nor
it is on the unsafe index at areas like KL or PJ.
Try driving or take a peek out of ur office window or ur school’s window.
It is HAZZY!!… It is kambing back!!
Okay Thank You

Fong Po Kuan’s ( DAP Parliament Rep.) reply on statement made by
CEO of PUAS (Pejabat Urusan Air Selangor)
“I was shocked to read from the newspaper today that the CEO of PUAS (Perbadanan Urus Air Selangor) Datuk Mohd Sinon Mudzakir is satisfied with the water quality in the Klang Valley, despite complaints from many consumers that the water they are getting is brown and smelly.”
Sunday is a boring day, I spend my whole day surfing the net and doing my stuffs.
You might have seen something new on my blog…

my BMW and secondly because he killed me after destroying my car.!

Then.. there was like SRJC Sin Chung is being demolished without
giving its warning to the school and despite protest being made by the school.
Just a court order to tear down the place the developer started their work!
So.. LESSON! = COURT RULING IS THE HIGHEST OF ALL IN MALAYSIA!
Note: Even religous matter.. !! Remember M. Moothy’s case?
and furthermore.. Proton is like selling MV Augusta!
What the hell.. enough of all this nonsense people!!
Can’t YOU PEOPLE just get things right for once..

Even MAS is like facing the damn problem of losing $$$$$

Even public transportation is the worst and is the root to all devilish jam in
KL and outskirt of KL!!
Can’t they just give a better service with KTM? which has links with most of
