That AirAsia stewardess is beautiful. Do people have something against AirAsia's 737's?


Back on topic, I love the look of these Malaysian highways. How are the drivers? I remember seeing pictures of Italian highways but when you see them in person the crazy driving of other people takes your attention away from the scenery if you're behind the wheel.

Italians can be inadequate in the city, but on motorways they follow the rules. I wish in America motorway drivers behaved at least like Italians.

Italians drive like suicide on the rural roads. Overtaking in curves where there's absolutely no sight on the other lane, excessive speed, non-following rules in city limits etc.

Well, I drove mainly on Autostradas and left the car on the outskirts of large cities. After crossing Poland, Czechia and Austria, I did not notice any suicidal behaviour among Italians.

I noticed how people drive on the motorways when I drove in Rome and Catania. I wish they would drive like that in the U.S. They stay in the right lane and get the hell out of your way.

What are you trying to imply? Nobody said this highway is in Borneo?

Pan Borneo Highway
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Pan Borneo Highway (Lebuhraya Pan Borneo), also known as Trans Borneo Highway, (Lebuhraya Trans Borneo), (Federal route 01 for Sarawak and A1 for Sabah) is a network of federal roads connecting Sarawak, Brunei and Sabah. The Pan Borneo Highway project a joint project between the governments of Brunei and Malaysia. The project started as soon as Sarawak and Sabah joined the federation of Malaysia in 1963. The lack of a road network system in Sarawak was the main factor of the construction. The section that connects Sarawak, Sabah and Brunei is the Lawas - Temburong (Brunei) stretch, completed in 1997. The completion of the stretch made traveling by car from Kuching to Kota Kinabalu possible. However, the government continues to build newer sections to connect rural areas in Sarawak.

The length of the entire highway system is expected to be about 1047.18 km. As in 2002, about 997.18 km or 95.2% of the highway has been completed. The latest section of the highway (Tenom - Sipitang section) is the most recent section completed in 2006. The construction of the final section from Kalabakan to Sepulut is expected to begin in 2008, therefore the entire Pan Borneo Highway is expected to be fully completed within the Ninth Malaysia Plan period.

I doubt that ssangyong buddy...it was more of a 'smart ass' comment in my opinion, more like he was trying to say that East Malaysia is ignored and underdeveoped and there are no such highways in Borneo...pretty sarcastic.

Are there any expressways on Borneo? The image we get in the "western world" is that it's just one hell of a jungle.
