Walking along the streets of Kuala Lumpur, I came across this restaurant which was using the ".Asia" domain name space. It is actually a pub/restaurant located near the Sunway Lagoon which is a theme park in Malaysia. Them using the domain name makes perfect sense since they have branches in Singapore and also in China. When entering their site, you have the choice to enter the different regional sites and see the offerings and special events going on there. They were able to get a good domain name which gives them excellent SEO rankings and it is easy to promote and remember. Using the domain name on their entrance, lets more people remember it and go back and share it on their social networking sites and also with their friends. It is becoming a trend now for eateries to go online so people can look at their menus, special events and make reservations too. A great domain name and a great bar too I must say.

Heard of the amazing race? Well CityDash was something similar and it took place in Hong Kong on the 13th of November for the whole day. Participants had to go to several checkpoints all over Hong Kong and be ahead in the race and they stood the chance to win many attractive prizes at the end of the race. They were able to kill 2 birds with one stone, going to the best places around the city, meeting celebrities along the way and also enjoy a great Sunday out with their friends and loved ones. The weather did not disappoint too and there was not much trouble for every participant to reach their checkpoints. Using the ".Asia" domain name gives a chance for this competition to move to other regions in Asia without doing much to change the domain name. Also in the future, there is also a chance that it might become an Asian wide competition resulting in more attention, more prize money perhaps and more exposure. Great usage of the domain name and a great idea too.
一直聽說偉大祖國要將語言一體化，普通話被視為國語大熱，那邊廂南北普通話大比拼；這邊廂廣東話其實悄悄起革命，在亞洲，說華語的人很多，當中廣東話實在不少，廣東話語句結構其實深不可測，這個網站，教你認真又爆笑地學廣東話，將不同的語句歸類，如俗語篇中的 '得個×字' ﹣ ×往往是動詞，"得個"就是"只能"，"只有......的份"，又如"得個講"、"得個做"。"恨" 除了 "痛恨"，在粵語裡頭還有"非常想得到"、"渴望"的意思，如"恨嫁"、"好恨食榴蓮"。
