Angkasawan Dunia Terpanas (The Hottest Astronaut in the World!)
So cute!!! (Compare with middle Russian cosmonaut)
Still cute even though spacesuit is dirty (Look at the Russian again...)
Suave like a movie star!!!
I was so mesmerized I couldn't resist posting a comment on his blog here.
I am also bimbo-eified into feeling that, yeah, this is really a programme that all Malaysians should feel proud of! After all, he is only the 451-st person to go into space, and we are the 35th country to send someone into space (quoted from this morning's Fly FM)! And not to mention he did pass the physical endurance test, mental test, technical test and all that jazz, which is not easy you know!!! Plus he will be doing important experiments in space: cancer cells, microbes, and protein crystallization, not mentioning bringing vacumm-packed Malaysian delicacies to space, and wearing a batik shirt!
Some armchair critics like to complain that the angkasawan is wasting our money and say this is a stupid mission. Well, we don't very well know the significance of those experiments, do we? (And neither do I...) But since everything is already done, we might as well take the 95-million RM "Search for the Angkasawan Negara" as the 95-million "Search for Malaysia's Next Top Eligible Bachelor a.k.a Eye-Candy"! Which, IMHO, is a huge success! ^_^
All that said, I wish him and all the other angkasawan a safe journey, and God Speed!
