First Malaysian In Space

Sheikh Muszaphur Shukor is the 1st Malaysian in space, an orthopedic physician, a lecturer in Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia, an owner of a restaurant and also a MODEL! Can't believe it huh?? He's only 35 years old, exactly 20 years older than me. He's talented. He's smart. He's handsome. He's almost perfect. He launched to the International Space Station aboard Soyuz TMA-11 and it take places at the tail end of Muslim holy month of Ramadan, when practicing Muslims fast and pray 5 times per day. I wonder how he fast in the space. I guess he will postpone his fasting period. Dr.Sheikh said he will treats all the people in the rocket with Satay and Malay Traditional Kuih. That's a good way to introduce our country. I'm proud of him! My grandma's currently addicted to this handsome astronaut because he looks a like with an Hong Kong artist, Chow Yun Fat, who acts in The Pirates of the Caribbean 3.

here's the photos of the rocket, the astronaut and the process of launching to space:
