First Malaysian in space

Today marks another milestone in Malaysia's history. Yeah, we finally send someone to the space. The lucky person is no other than the handsome Dr. Sheikh Muszhapha Shukor. Guess he will be the idol of many young Malaysian from today onward.

Dr. Sheikh is the first 'angkasawan' or astronaut to represent Malaysia though there was another candidate, Capt Dr Faiz Khaleed who went for the same training. According to news report, he could be the second person in line to visit ISS (International Space Station) should our country is sending another space mission.

Well, as part of the 'BOLEH' community, I hope Dr. Sheikh has a pleasant journey in space...
