AirAsia offers free seats for KL-Perth

From midnight Thursday, 5,000 free seats will be available for the Perth-Kuala Lumpur flights via AirAsia X.

The free seats up for grabs are for the travel period between Nov 2 and April 30, 2009.

AirAsia X director Datuk Tony Fernandes said the offer was only available for booking on Friday and Saturday and it was in conjunction with the launch of the long haul budget airline's new direct service from KL to Perth, Western Australia.

"From midnight today, you can try to get free seats to Perth. I've already received 27 SMSes from Malaysians and Australians in Perth asking what time they can start booking," he told reporters Thursday after the launch of the long haul destination to Perth here.

He said the average fare to Perth would be under RM400 including fuel surcharge and the return fare for business class seats was about RM2,000.

"Many people have been asking when we are going to Perth. It has the largest Malaysian student population and Malaysians and Singaporeans living there. Our dream of turning Malaysia into a hub for people flying around South-East Asia destinations is also becoming a reality."

Perth is the airline's third international destination following its launch to Hangzhou, China in February this year with five return flights per week and to Gold Coast Australia in November last year with four return flights.

AirAsia X will offer six return flights per week between Perth and KL, and is already planning to increase the flights to daily return flights by March 2009. The airline’s new wide-bodied Airbus A330 aircraft will service the route.

To date, AirAsia X has carried over 50,000 guests between Gold Coast and Kuala Lumpur, and 30,000 between Hangzhou.

Maria Sharapova sizzles against helpless Henin


Maria Sharapova inflicted world No.1 Justine Henin's first loss since Wimbledon last year with a stirring 6-4 6-0 victory to advance to the semi-finals of the Australian Open.

The Russian No.5 seed was at her clinical best against an out-of-sorts Henin, who had not been beaten for 33 matches - a streak that began after her semi-final loss to Marion Bartoli at the All-England Club.

Since then, Henin has been the dominant player on the WTA Tour, winning five tournaments including the US Open and the season-ending Tour Championships.

But she was ineffectual against Sharapova, who smashed 30 winners to just 11 to claim victory in one hour 38 minutes.

Sharapova was clearly in the zone from the outset, breaking Henin in her opening service game before taking a 5-3 lead in the first set.

Somehow, Henin fought her way back into the contest to take it to 5-4. Sharapova then had three set points on the Belgian's serve before finally converting on the fourth to close out the set in just over an hour.

Henin was unable to find any sort of rhythm on serve as Sharapova continually pounded winners from the back of the court, racing to a 4-0 lead before winning the set to love.

She will now take on Serbian third seed Jelena Jankovic after she ousted Serena Williams earlier in the day.

New "Happy" Prepaid Mobile Service

"Happy", that is the name of the new no-frills mobile service. Happy prepaid service allows customers to call any network at 1sen per second to a maximum of 99sen per call while SMSes will be at 10sen per SMS. Happy is the brainchild of four "rebel" from Digi who felt Malaysian mobile customers should have one straightforward plan and not have to pay for the "extras" they didn't need.

The Happy network will be riding on Digi's infrastructure so essentially, you'll still be getting a Digi coverage. The Happy line will use the 014 suffixes and starter packs star at RM5 with RM2 worth of calls. Happy is also giving their customer longer lasting line with validity going for 60 days starting from the last reload, regardless of the reload sum.

To register with Happy, you can head over to www.happy.com.my and order a Happy pack which will be sent to you free of charge. Alternatively, you can call 014-3456789 and order it from them or pick up a pack from Happy crews who are visiting nearby Giant Hypermarkets.
