Comparato Wins First Ever F1 Powerboat Victory - Cappellini Loses Hope Of 2004 World Championship

Press Release Kuala Lumpur Malaysia, September 25, 2004.... In what started as a clear lead for Cappellini in today's F1 Powerboat Grand Prix of Malaysia soon ended with a dramatic incident with Seaquest driver Bob Trask on lap 18. The drivers were racing at more than 200kmph and ended up colliding just prior to the bridge. The air turbulence literally sent both boats flying through the air with a spectacular double flip before smashing back into the water - amazingly almost in tact.... And in those split seconds Cappellini's chances of a world championship win were shattered!" This year is not my lucky year and I have yet to win in Malaysia," lamented Cappellini. "I am not giving up hope and will continue to race for first place in Korea. "With the debris removed from the circuit, racing continued with the waving of the green flag. Comparato quickly sprinted ahead holding both Cantando and Gillman at bay. Adrenalin was racing in the Comparato camp with the promise of an inaugural win still but a dream at this stage. Gillman continued to attack Cantando and although at one point managed to overtake, the Italian today was the stronger driver and managed to pull ahead. With a requirement of just 16 points to secure over these next three races the strategy in the Emirates team was for Gillman to finish rather than drive aggressively for first place - and it paid off. Malaysian driver was holding his pace well until unfortunately on lap 34 he hit a buoy which took him out of the race. With the yellow flag raised this gave other drivers the opportunity to close the gaps and have a go at catching Comparato. With the restart on lap 38 Cantando and Comparato were neck and neck - teams were holding their breath to see if Cantando could take him on the corner. Comparato however was absolutely determined and pulled away quickly leading the rest of the race to the chequered flag and his first ever win in his 50th race start. "I'm ecstatic!" said Comparato. "I knew I had some very fast laps and I just raced as hard as I could. At one stage I was worried as it was a very long race of 60 laps and I wondered if my boat would make it. Once I knew I could win I just pushed harder and harder. I'm very happy." "Today was definitely Comparato's race," enthused Gillman. "We did have a few problems with our boat this weekend, however I'm delighted with a third place win - the Championship is looking more likely." With a second place finish, Cantando has put himself strongly back in the World Championship running with just 19 points behind Scott Gillman. "I nearly passed Cantando today but he was much faster than me. I am extremely pleased for him and very happy to come in second place," commented Cantando. Gillman's team-mate Tany Al Qamzy also put in a very strong race finishing 4th today and ensuring a team win for the Emirates drivers. Philippe Dessertenne who finished second in Singapore was extremely hopeful for this race. However fire in his engine took him out on lap six - much to the disappointment of the Ligier team. All was not lost however with the 2nd driver Philippe Chiappe securing points when he finished in ninth place. David Trask from the Seaquest team finished in 6th place today and once again securing precious championship points. "I must be on a lucky streak," said David. Both Corona drivers performed strongly in Malaysia today with veteran Fabrizio Bocca finishing 5th and Jamie Stallard in 11th. "We are very happy to be both winning points - it was a great success for our team and it feels good to be up at the front again," said a delighted Bocca. The racing line up also saw Marco Gambi from the Interpass Castrol team finish in a surprise 7th position and the Belgium Julius Leysen finishing in 10th place. "Today was a wonderful and exciting Grand Prix," commented F1 Powerboat promoter Nicolo di San Germano.

Casting for film: Leap of Love

We’re casting for a feature film, Leap of Love, to be produced by Raintree Pictures. The story revolves around Chang Li-An, a Chinese girl in her mid 20s, and her obsession with the idea of finding her soul-mate. Her girlfriends scoff at her; her mother thinks she’s not being practical. Her best friend, KS, is in love with her and but Li-An doesn’t see that. Then, there is a French businessman who comes into the picture. The film is slated for international release, and as such, we are looking for a local/regional/international cast with neutral to American accents. The shoot is likely to start in December, and will be shot in Singapore. If you are interested, please send your CVs and recent pictures to johan@ascension.com.my. Do help spread the word as well!

Calling all Poets

Attention poetic factory workers of Malacca! You are invited to join the Malacca State Industry Workers Declamation Poetry Competition. Okay, it sounds more poetic in Bahasa: Sayembara Puisi Deklamasi Warga Industri Negeri Melaka. This is an effort of Dewan Bahasa & Pustaka Selatan together with Jabatan Kerja Tenaga Melaka and Pesatuan Penulis Melaka. Closing date is Sep 15, 2004. Call 07-2358522, 07-2365588, fax 07-2358686 or email: rar@dbp.gov.my. Nevermind that 99% of puisi deklamasi sounds like Squealer's odes to Napoleon, let’s hope that through this exercise some real blue collar poet, whose poem about beef patties might be rejected for not being declamatory enough, will not give up and will one day be heard. Meanwhile, up north, 50 poets from around the world have gathered to mumble their verses to one another around Malaysian sites in need of some soul: the Malaysian Tourism Centre, the Agricultural Park in Shah Alam and the Ministry of Finance. In their weekly declamation, preview the KL World Poetry Reading forum, as well as Thor Kah Hoong’s revisit to a bygone Brickfields, and a funky Japanese lighting gadget. This week is a veritable Literary Fest at Kakiseni. Zedeck Siew, who recently survived National Service, sat through four days of the Citigroup KL Lit Fest and found himself equally confused about his prescribed identity. Yes, more soul-searching from everybody’s favourite teenager. Jerome Kugan, who came back from a holiday in Jakarta, found himself smitten by the literary scene that could have been Malaysia’s, if only we had the hungry readership and feeding publishers. Speaking of which, allow us to offer you this delectable morsel. Leading Indonesian essayist, poet and writer Goenawan Mohamad has generously given a mystical tale of his for our humble little website. With this, we would like to launch Kakiseni Voices. Send in your poems and short stories; our favourite each month will be published on Kakiseni. The winner will receive fame and glory and a book prize. At the polls, 17% of you would rather be an artist on a tropical island (making post cards?), while 10% chose the countryside and 9% the city. Merely 5% recognised the grimy inspiration to be had in a warzone, and another five are willing to do time at Kamunting in order to find their muse. Only one poor sod chose the office. For what it is worth, Wallace Stevens, one of the most celebrated American poet of the 20th Century, was also an insurance executive with a boring office job. How much more reality can you get? For those keen to take part in declamation poetry competition, here’s Wallace Stevens’s advice. From ‘On Modern Poetry’: It has to be living, to learn the speech of the place. It has to face the men of the time and to meet The women of the time. It has to think about war And it has to find what will suffice. It has To construct a new stage. It has to be on that stage, And, like an insatiable actor, slowly and With meditation, speak words that in the ear, In the delicatest ear of the mind, repeat, Exactly, that which it wants to hear, at the sound Of which, an invisible audience listens, Not to the play, but to itself, expressed In an emotion as of two people, as of two Emotions becoming one. Okay, keep writing, folks. Contributed by Kakiseni

Income Tax: Self Assessment Seminar

A one-day seminar on Income Tax: Self Assessment September 25, 2004 HELP Institute

The Malaysian Income Tax system will be totally transformed with effect 2004 from the current formal assessment system where the Inland Revenue Board Malaysia (IRB) determines the income tax payer by an individual taxpayer has to interpret tax laws and determine his or her own tax liability and subsequently file with the IRB an accurate income tax return form (Form B) together with a payment instrument for the balance of tax payable by them, if any.

In view of the shift towards self assessment for individuals beginning from the year 2004, it has become increasingly important that all tax payers become aware of not just their rights and responsibilities but more importantly of fundamentals and basic principals of the Malaysian income tax legislation.

In Pursuit of the Ultimate Nasi Kandar in Penang!

Whenever you're in Penang and want to feast on great mamak food (yes the sweaty hairy mamaks in Penang ROCK!!!)

Ladies, check out "Podium"

Podium They have women’s clothes and shoes and swim wear. It opens on the 29th July 2004. It's a fast spreading secret among the high society ladies. It’s at Bangsar Village (near the mosque) on the 1st floor. It’s a cute nice small boutique that sells select clothes from Paris called Tara Jarmon (professional wear and classy wear) and clothes called Amanda***arling and shoes from Beatrice Ong (The ex creative director of Dato Jimmy Choo in London). Very very bling bling nice shoes. Amanda***arling has fun clothes and beach wear. Think Princess Diana and Channel style with a pinch of fun. The pieces are limited and one of a kind in Malaysia. Definely won't be caught with someone wearing the same threads. We like. Sorry guys.. No men’s wear. p.s: They are a bit pricey, so if u really want to dress to impress like them Datin’s flashin’s, you know where to head. Look for Lee Ann and mention Johan sent you, she might give you a discount.
