Not at all, although the origins of the word came from the Kashmir area from the Persian times, we are fortunate that many other locations are now producing cashmere. One in particular is in Inner Mongolia, northern China. This area is the biggest producer of cashmere goats in the wool. Vary the pressure when working with color to give the sketch shadows and highlights. Never mind coloring outside the lines, because neatness in drawing doesn count much compared with the tangible creation that results from the idea. Some designers even purposefully color outside the outline, making the sketch more artistic and abstract. Many films of the 1940s centered on the trials and tribulations of the brave men and women fighting for freedom in Europe and the Pacific. In order to express its support for the hardships and rations endured during the War by regular citizens, Hollywood created simple and subdued costumes during this period. Women dressed in simple suits or slacks with sensible shoes. Batman Forever Return of Swamp Thing (Truly bad but I couldn make a strong enough case to call it a superhero film) Elektra Meteor Man (This film almost made my list but I left if off since it is mainly a spoof) Ghost Rider Dick Tracy And finally, I have to mention one film that was excluded that perhaps deserves the number one spot and that the 1994 Fantastic Four film that was never released theatrically or on video although it been heavily bootlegged. Intending it to be a $40 big budget film, the producer, Neu Constantin was about to lose his rights to the film and had to produce something. He hired director Roger Corman to make the film but not for $40 million. Matchy Matchy doesn't always work in the fashion world because sometimes you have to mix and match your outfits along with a little color. With the rules of wearing white after labor day doesn't really apply anymore. In fashion, you'll need to take certain risks without being afraid to strut your stuff in those outfits that you own. Are you one of those people that know exactly what you want but you have trouble finding it. Try looking for it on Ebay. You will be shocked to find exactly what you are looking for in a very reasonable price. Should petite women buy, tweak, or skip the animal influences trend for fall/winter 2010/2011? I say tweak on this fall fashion trend. Furs, whether real or faux, tend to be quite bulky, so petite women should wear them with care. For example, a fur lined hood may work better than a full length fur coat.

Perodua sold some 180,000 vehicles, consisting of 30% of the total industry volume in 2011 and maintained as the most preferred automotive brand for 6 years in a row in Malaysia. The new Myvi models sold nearly 78,000 units last year follow by its 2 other models – the Viva and Alza.

 

Perodua Managing Director, Datuk Aminar Rashid Salleh said Perodua has set a sales target of 188,000 this year or a 4% increase from 2011 on the back of better standard operating procedures from Perodua as well as aggressive promotions throughout the year.

 

“We are confident that, barring any unforeseen circumstances, we can meet this target,” he said at a media briefing here today.

 

Aminar added that Perodua is also doing well in terms of after sales as the national car company recorded its highest ever service intake of 1.67 million vehicles in 2011; this translates into a market share of 51% of Perodua vehicles currently in operation. He also revealed that Perodua has doubled its exports to 8,000 vehicles in 2011 from 4,000 vehicles in 2010.

 

“We aim to further boost our exports this year to 10,000 units by further increasing the export volume to the countries that we are currently in as well as exploring new markets,” he said.

It also exports its Myvi model to Indonesia under the Daihatsu Sirion badge.

 

In addition, Perodua also aims to further boost its customer satisfaction by improving the quality of its service on both sales and after sales. Aside from better training its human capital resources to be more efficient and knowledgeable, Perodua will also build its new flagship 3S centre in Section 19, Petaling Jaya as a model of its future sales and service centres nationwide.

Perodua Myvi Extreme 1.5L Manual Review in Malaysia

When the proclamation about the new Perodua Myvi 1.5L will be launching, our enthusiast’s sense triggered to drive a more powerful Myvi immediately. We took the top of the range Perodua Myvi Extreme with a 5-speed manual transmission to get the maximum output from the 1.5-litre that produces 102hp and attempt to achieve the 0-100km/h in below 10 seconds.

With 2 adults onboard, we are able to achieve 10.7 seconds from 0-100km/h. Hence, we believe 0-100km/h below 10 seconds is achievable. The 1.5-litre engine performs pretty well and responsive. However, the engine gets a bit loud when we’re doing high 5000rpm above. Otherwise on a normal day cruising or over taking with the Perodua Myvi 1.5, not a problem at all.

According to Perodua’s engineer, the all the new Myvi has been fitted with an extra bar in the rear body and a firmer suspension tuning for the Myvi 1.5 too.The car grips pretty well for a short wheel base vehicle. Steering response was predictable and relatively direct. As we are driving the manual version of the Myvi Extreme, we often require to change gears with the gear stick, we felt that the gear stick was position a bit low even the driver seats is positioned to the lowest.
