Sbyke - Scooter, Bicycle, Skateboard All In One

So you feel like you’ve seen it all, there are bicycles, unicycles, skateboards and scooters, but nothing really new, nothing you could look at and say, cool, that looks like it could be fun.

BMW Concept C Super Scooter

BMW has long been known for “sport bikes”. It marketed a cruiser bike for a time to compete against the likes of Harley Davidson, but it left the market when it didn’t catch on. In Europe, it is not uncommon to find business professionals commuting to work in a BMW motorcycle, often outfitted with a plexi-glass surround for rain protection. BMW has unveiled today a new scooter, called simply BMW Concept C.

Cultural Mistakes to Avoid When E-mailing or Traveling

Whether you’re traveling for business or pleasure nowadays the world really is your oyster. In a matter of hours you can plant yourself on the other side of the world, literally, and immerse yourself into a completely different culture.
As the saying goes, “When in Rome, do as the Romans do.” In other words, if you’re not sure what the local customs are when traveling abroad, follow the cues from the locals.

Adat Perpatih

Ramai yang tidak memahami sebenarnya tentang Adat Perpatih ini. Isu yang paling hangat diperkatakan adalah mengenai pembahagian harta, hingga ada yang menjatuhkan hukum "haram" kepada pengamalnya. Adakah benar? Sebaiknya, kita mendalami dahulu pengetahuan tentang Adat Perpatih ini....

Adat Perpatih berasal dari tanah Minangkabau, Sumatera, diasaskan oleh seorang pemimpin Minang bernama Sutan Balun yang bergelar Dato' Perpatih Nan Sebatang. Adat ini adalah amalan dan peraturan hidup yang ditentukan bagi masyarakat Minangkabau yang rata-ratanya adalah petani ketika itu. Tidak ada tarikh yang tepat dicatatkan bila adat ini diwujudkan. Tetapi Adat Perpatih telah dibawa ke Semenanjung Tanah Melayu (Semenanjung Malaysia) oleh perantau-perantau Minangkabau pada abad ke 14 Masehi.

Funniest Badly-Translated Ads

When it comes to advertising, we've come a long way, baby. All of these marketing slogans and brand names were perfectly fine... in English. However, once they were translated into other languages they took on hilarious new meanings!

World's Worst Cultural Mistakes

Touching Someone
Where It’s Offensive: Korea, Thailand, China, Europe, the Middle East.
What’s Offensive: Personal space varies as you travel the globe. In Mediterranean countries, if you refrain from touching someone’s arm when talking to them or if you don’t greet them with kisses or a warm embrace, you’ll be considered cold. But backslap someone who isn’t a family member or a good friend in Korea, and you’ll make them uncomfortable. In Thailand, the head is considered sacred — never even pat a child on the head.
What You Should Do Instead: Observe what locals are doing and follow suit. In Eastern countries remember that touching and public displays of affection are unacceptable. In places like Qatar and Saudi Arabia, men and women are forbidden from interacting, let along touching.

Strength Of A Man and Beauty Of A Woman

Strength of a Man

The strength of a man isn't seen in the width of his shoulders.
It is seen in the width of his arms that encircle you.

The strength of a man isn't in the deep tone of his voice.
It is in the gentle words he whispers.
