MAS GO RETRO - CELEBRATING 40TH OF MALAYSIAN HOSPITALITY

Malaysia Airlines is celebrating 40 years of world renowned Malaysian Hospitality delivery to air travellers. As part of a series of year-long activities the national flag carrier recently revealed one of its aircraft painted with the special “40 years of Malaysian Hospitality” livery. A Boeing 737-800 was re-painted in full colors of their first ever aircraft that took to the skies four decades ago, offering a special guest experience for customers who fly in this aircraft.

 Based on nearly twenty years of close cooperation, AkzoNobel Aerospace Coatings partnered to develop the colors, advised on selection of the paint system and also provided on-site technical support to the highly skilled work force of the MAS paint shop.
For the Retro Livery that dates back to October 1972, the most modern paint system was selected. The B737-800 aircraft was painted with Aerodur® 3001 Base Coat and Aerodur® 3002 Clear Coat and benefits from the very latest advances in technology;  notably improved gloss, color retention and extended durability, providing the ultimate protection and good looks for Malaysia Airlines’ brand image.
Recognized as the first Base Coat/Clear Coat system that fulfils it’s promises, the Aerodur Base Coat only needs one coat per color for full hiding and dries in two hours instead of ten. The entire surface of the aircraft was finished with a protective Aerodur Clear Coat. As a result, the MAS paint shop benefited from faster process times and paint volume reduction. The wide application window made the system particularly suitable for the tropical conditions.

AkzoNobel Aerospace Coatings is proud of the ongoing relationship with Malaysia Airlines and is delighted to be associated with the commemorative aircraft.

MY OSAKA AUTUMN WALK

Bamboo Path, Kyoto

1.00 am in the morning at LCCT, melangkah masuk ke dalam A330 AirAsia-X to Osaka, Japan - with my fren dari travel agency dgn mission to take photos and video's for their promotion.

Tepat jam 1.05am, pesawat airbus meluncur laju ke angkasa menuju ke Kansai Airport.

Hello Kansai! Hello Osaka!
LTE Pocket WiFi 72Mbps! - Very Fast!
Penerbangan ke Osaka mengambil masa lebih kurang 7 jam dari Kuala Lumpur ke Osaka. Tepat jam 8.10am waktu Japan, pesawat selamat mendarat di KIX (Kansai International Airport). Selepas selesai mengambil barangan serta melepasi sempadan imegresen serta kastam, terus ke departure hall untuk ambik Pocket Wifi yang telah dibooked awal-awal. Kat sini rugi tak guna internet 24jam sehari kerana line kat sini sangatla lajuuuuu - 72MBPS!

Then terus ke tingkat bawah untuk mengambil Airport Coach bus untuk ke bandar Osaka. Coach ticket dibeli dari mesin automatik yg disediakan, cukup mudah dan teratur.

Umeda Station, Osaka
45 minutes dalam bus, akhirnya we all tiba di Umeda Station. Disini merupakan pusat transit untuk pelbagai jenis pengangkutan awam seperti train, subway, bullet train ke seluruh destinasi lain serata Jepun.



After we put our luggage dalam luggage box sekitar Umeda Station, we all terus bergegas mengejar train ke Kyoto. Lokasi pertama penggambaran - Arashiyama.


Tiba di Arashiyama, terus proceed ke ticket counter untuk naik Romantic Train - akan dibawa mengelilingi lereng bukit untuk menikmati suasana Autumn yang mana pokok2 berdaun merah kuning jingga menaikkan mood suasana di sana.


Terpaku seketika melihat rimbunan buluh yang dijaga rapi di Bamboo Path.  Diberitahu bahawa buluh-buluh ini diguanakan untuk pembuatan chopstick.



Disini juga sempat merasai airkrim traditional mereka - perasa tea. Sangat sedap!



Kemudian we all berjalan kaki di celah celah kampung tradisi jepun dan menuju ke satu lagi kawasan menarik - Togetsukyo Bridge
Projector on Wall





Beberapa jam menghabiskan photoshoot sekitar Kyoto, then we all bergegas menaiki train ke Umeda Station dan terus mengubah menaiki train yang kedua untuk ke Juso - where our hotel located - and the hotel room was very big! siap ada massage chair, projector kat dinding to mirror the tv, siap ada jazuki yang bley tukar2 kaler lampu bagai...awesome!



Day 2 - Pagi2 lagi we all dah transit train untuk ke destinasi seterusnya - Nara.  Ia merupakan kawasan taman yang sangat luas dan terdapat temple-temple keagamaan. Di sini juga terdapat banyak rusa yang berkeliaran tanpa dikawal. Mean - rusa-rusa dibiarkan hidup bebas disekitar kawasan ini tanpa ada pagar etc etc.



Keunikan autumn dapat dilihat dengan jelas disini. Kebanyakan pelancong gemar untuk datang ke sini adalah kerana keunikan daun-daun pokok yang berwarna-warni ketika musim autumn! 3-4 jam berada disini amatlah memuaskan!


Then we all terus naik train ke Shinsaibashi. Pelbagai store berjenama berada disini. Kedai2 berteknologi tinggi hampir memenuhi kawasan Daguyasuji Street ini. Sempat juga menjengok Apple Store™ Osaka yang juga berada berhampiran :)
