All In A Day's Work

Guest what I did today that makes me so happy?











I got my rebate!!!!! I am richer by RM1,250.00. I have a double claim, because I have 2 cars under my name and they really gave the money to me!
.

I Went to Giant Hypermarket Post Office at 8.30 am to make the claim, but the queue there was long and the sun was hot, I thought it was better for me to avoid getting sunburn.







.
So I packed and drove to Carrefor. Regretted, because the jam from Giant Hypermarket to Carrefor was 1/2 hour instead of the usual 10 minutes drive + petrol?
.
At 9.00 am I was at Carrefor Hypermarket. All shops were not opened yet. I went to the post office and queue up. Is was cooling, so is worth the petrol. The post office open at 9.30 am.
.
While waiting, I overheard a young man talking on the phone : "Darling, I am at Carrefor waiting to claim the petrol rebate, the queue is so long, any way it's such a small amount, I'll make the claim some other days ok?" He stopped a little while and said : "But darling, you see, I have been to other post office, it's all the same long queue." I turned and smiled to the young man. Most people when they are young they call the wife darling, honey, sweet heart.... Slowly, they would change the tone and start name-calling with Wei, Hei added in ....... that is the time the wife should pack and go, I think. Haha just joking. May be the wife like it that way.
.
I renewed one of the Road Tax, which will expires on 8.7.08.

I asked the clerk - " Can I get the rebate after the renewal?" He said, after looking at my registration card and did some calculation, "No, cannot, come back next year January 09." "But then it's stated in the news that renewal after July 08 can start to claim on 1.7.08 right? Can you please check again, thank you." I handed him the other registration card and said, "I would appreciate if you could let me claim it together." And jokingly I said, "Petrol very expensive Oh, now!" And gave him a smile. I didnt know I could bargain for it, I was surprised.

Within 20 minutes I got my road tax renewed and money in my hand. Yeah!

On the way home, I stopped somewhere for breakfast. I saw this shop "Uncle Seng Home Made Noodle". There were so many people waiting, it must be nice. I went in alone, feeling a little like an alien.
.






.
I found that the food there...Mmmmm.... soup was ok, no 'ajinomoto', I think they've added in some cornflour to make the noodle smoother, that all, but the coffee was nice.
.
That's me, on my way to my car, parked so far away.
.






.
I drop by at Standard Chartered Bank, put my money safely into the bank before I plan what to do with it... Mmm.... big makan, new cloths, shoes, handbag, sunglasses ... anyway how many people will actually keep the money for the petrol? Count ....... and tell me!

Hi Sweetie, thank for dropping by. You can ask some one to claim on behalf but the money will be posted to the address given to them. No cash if you do it this way.
