how to research trends But is the only place you find cashmere wool coat from Kashmir? 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.

Proton & Volkswagen talk resumed to set up a CKD plant in Malaysia

Previously, Volkswagen AG had shown interest in Proton’s manufacturing infrastructure in Malaysia with intention to establish a CKD hub catering to the Asian market. Unfortunately, there are many things occurred and turn things down during discussion between the tie-ups.


Now, Skoda, Volkswagen or even the luxury Audi at an affordable price range is possible again for Malaysian fellows as Proton & Volkswagen talk resumed. This time it will not be a conditional takeover or tie-up talk but a discussion about to set up a completely knocked down (CKD) plant locally.


Last week, Proton CEO Datuk Syed Zainal Abidin Syed Mohamed Tahir confirmed that the company is in discussion with the German automaker. OSK Research added, “The feasibility of this potential tie-up is expected to be announced by the end of the first half of this year. If it materialises by 2011, the said plant will manufacture Volkswagen sedan vehicles catering to the domestic and export market, predominantly in the Asean region.


It added that if Volkswagen does set up its hub here, the initial investment would be less than US$200 million (RM667 million). Last year, the VW’s partnership deal with IndoMobil to set up a CKD assembly plant in East Jakarta, Indonesia, to manufacture its MPV line-up at an initial investment of US$140 million (RM467 million).


I would see if the proposed CKD plant in Malaysia goes thru, we will see the local facility catering to the production of the Sedan segment using the Proton’s Shah Alam plant.


Mazda 2 Sedan Malaysia Review

Mazda 2 Sedan Side

Mazda 2 Sedan or 4 Door version is  available now in Malaysia. While still waiting for the official launch, the car is actually in most of the Mazda showrooms. Mazda 2 sedan it’s only available in few country such as China,Thailand and Malaysia and others. If i am not wrong, even in Japan there’s only Mazda 2 Hatchback known as Mazda Demio over there.

Mazda 2 Sedan Front Bumper

Mazda 2 Sedan share the same front fascia as the Mazda 2 Hatchback. China was the 1st market that has the Mazda 2 sedan model. That was my 1st time to see Mazda 2 on the road when i went to Guang Zhou last year and it was the pre-facelift version. The New Mazda 2 Sedan we are having here is a facelifted version built in Thailand.

 

The car model we are reviewing here it’s a Mazda 2 sedan R-Spec ( High Spec) with Sparkling Gold Mica as colour.

Mazda 2 Sedan Light All on

The most significant difference when you compare a Mazda 2 Hatchback and Mazda 2 sedan is of course the rear of the car. From the  rear we can see Mazda 2 sedan has inherited designs from his closest sibling – The Mazda 3 Sedan. With the 3rd brake light position on the top center of the boot and the similar shape of the tail lights.

Hybrid Vs Diesel – Here goes the BMW Mini Cooper Diesel Vs Toyota Prius

Automakers are introducing a number of different solutions for cleaner and more fuel efficient vehicles. In Australia, there is a war of words over title of greenest car back in 2009.


Every automaker is trying to share the mantle of the country’s most fuel-efficient car as part of their marketing effort.


The new Toyota Prius with 1.8L engine has joined the Mini Cooper Diesel version as Australia most fuel efficient vehicle. Both cars are using just 3.9 litres of fuel per 100km.


Toyota claimed that the larger capacity engine actually improved fuel efficiency at highway speeds because the extra torque. In the other side, BMW have long argued that the Prius is more about marketing spin than genuine breakthrough technology.


In depth, Toyota Australia product manager Ashley Edwards said that while the manual version of the Mini and the Prius used the same amount of fuel, the Prius emitted significantly less carbon dioxide – 89 grams per km, compared with 104g/km for the manual version of the Mini and 134 grams for the automatic Mini. The automatic Mini uses 5L/100km.


Question is whether Battery Cell or more Carbon Dioxide? In terms of eco-friendly, which is a better option? Which is more harmful to the environment? We need to analyse over the supply chain of the battery cell and its lifespan. In the other hand, the Diesel engine will emit a little more CO2.

Hybrid Vs Diesel Engine, which save the most fuels?

When the talks turns to saving fuel during fuel price crisis, the hybrid engine powered car naturally rise to the surface. In the other hand, a lot of people didn’t know that diesel powered car are also as efficient or even more efficient than hybrid car. Unfortunately, this rarely gets mentioned and discuss in Malaysia. In general, a lot of people here are not aware and secondly are due to poor quality of diesel in Malaysia. Therefore, there wasn’t many range of Diesel powered vehicles in Malaysia except for trucks and commercial vehicles.


In fact, the modern diesel engine is designed to be even more efficient, powerful, low emission and low fuel consumptions.


Consider this which tested in USA: Combined city and highway fuel economy for Lexus HS250h hybrid car is 35 miles per gallon. For Audi A3 TDI diesel car, it is 34 miles per gallon. Furthermore, in highway driving, the Audi considerably even tempting with 42 miles per gallon over 34 miles per gallon on Lexus HS250h.


Back in 2008, Volkswagen AG has extended their low emission Bluemotion range in UK across Golf, Jetta, Passat and soon to Scirocco Sports Coupe.


Putting a side of the price tag of Hybrid Car. Both type of power plant designs still required fuels to be powered and both produce emissions as well. For the hybird, it still required battery cells to be in-placed. From here, I would say that Diesel powered will be even more Eco-friendly and Greener. Lastly, I hope Malaysia will be able to upgrade and supply higher quality Diesel in very near future.
