What to look for in 2K9?

Welcome 2K9! Time to make those resolutions for the whole year. Let’s see what are ahead for the coming year.

1st of all, the global powerhouse, US of A will see president Barack Obama officially taking over George W. Bush on January 26. What can AND shall we expect from him? Likewise, Pak Lah, our prime minister will hand over his prime ministership to his deputy, Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.

Rear seat belt ruling in Malaysia will come to effect this year. So brace yourselves  for RM300 compound for not buckling up. Muslims who are going to tie the knot will have to undergo mandatory prenuptial HIV test.

The triennial Kuala Lumpur International Motorshow (KLIMS) will be held at the Putra World Trade Center in May and June. Expect more foreign cars and booth babes [huuhuu…..]. So, if you are looking for a new car, be it local or foreign, this is definitely THE exhibition you will not just want to miss! Deals, discounts, and more. Get this. This year’s Merdeka celebration will be held in the midst of fasting month. Will there be another occurance of Merdeka Raya in 2010?

Another highway in KL called DUKE [Duta <-> (H)Ulu K(e)lang Expressway] will be open sometime in January this year.
