I managed to download and try the xubuntu live today..

the one referred by http://ubuntu.com.my/ in the left menu link also pointing to http://www.ubuntu.com/products/GetUbuntu/download .. but the right menu link.. pointing to http://tw.releases.ubuntu.com/intrepid/
which is unreachable at the moment..

may be have not tried hard enough .. unable to find nearer south-east-asia mirrors though..

finally downloaded the iso image from australia mirror ..

[Xubuntu ~ 600Mb ~ took about 11hour and 53minute to complete]
Xubuntu from australia
at same time downloading ..
[CentOS 5.3 ~ 3.7GB ~ also completed in 14 hour and 16minute]
CentOS 5.3 iso mirrored in Singapore.


the example of direct HTTP iso link for xubuntu is as below.
