Jeannice Khor

I am going to feature the second-placed winner from the MAS-organized Youth Leadership Program speech showcase – she’s from the Under-15 category and her name is Jeannice Khor. Her speech title was “A Gift”. Like Puteri Ayu, I know you will agree with me that this teen has talent! Listen to her speech:


My October 11, 2010 posting titled “Nissan Leaf” featured the 100% electric car from Nissan Motor Co Ltd. Well, the Japanese auto company has won the Car of the Year Japan 2011-2012 award at the 2011 Tokyo Motor Show (December 02-11) for this particular model. This is also the first time in its long history that an electric vehicle has won this prestigious award (The Sun, December 14, 2011, p 22).

Nissan Leaf is a zero-emission vehicle that emits no CO2 while it is being driven. The said car offers new mobility value as the world shifts toward a sustainable zero-emission society, not only as a means of transportation, but also as an element of social infrastructure on account of its ability to store electricity.

Nissan Leaf was also named the 2012 RJC Car of the Year award winner, presented by the Automotive Researchers' & Journalists' Conference of Japan, in addition to winning the Japan Automotive Hall of Fame's 2011-2012 Car of the Year, the 2011 European Car of the Year and the 2011 World Car of the Year accolades.
