Here Come Bonus


Now is end of the year. Almost all working adult is expecting or have already collected their bonuses. Some fat some thin bonus.

I have a thin bonus. Anyway it is better than none.

Some people may have good plan after receiving their bonuses. For me I want to save it up and this time not the grandma's way like putting it under the pillow, haha just joking.

This time I would like to invest in gold bullions and gold coins. I was not really familiar with this type of investment earlier, but thru friends and some Internet searching I am now more confident and starting to learn about what is gold coin and gold bullion and how to invest in it.

Now with FD interest rate so low, gold is definitely another better option to safely keep our hard earned money.

Money Can Buy


I stopped going to the garden for morning and evening walk recently since the committee closed the exit and fenced up the road I used to take to the garden which is situated right infront of my house. Now I have to walk a loooonnng, looonnng distance to reach the garden which is just infront of my house.




So recently I am having very little exercise and I am sure sooner or later all the health problem will surface, and wrinkle will appear, and soon I will be moving like people playing 'Tai chi'. Oh, no no no I cant let all these happen to me. I want to live healthy, I want to enjoy life, I want to stay active, I want.... I want... I want....




First thing I did was to go for facial and then go for body massage to reduce my stress and wrinkle and have a more youthful look. Who dont want to look good, betul tak?




The beautician told me that my T-zone is oily and I am having a combination skin. So she recommended me a set of Skin Care Products. Besides that I also get some Acne Products from her for my acne and most importantly I got from her something for my Age Spot and Pigmentation.




I think I am happier, healthier and less wrinkle now.

Jalan Jalan Cari Makan

My girlfriends and I were in KL rounding looking for something to eat. From Jalan Pudu we went further up and turned into Jalan Peel and after passing Carefour traffic light we ended up at a stall by the road side.


The stall was packed with people. That means foods must be nice, I was guessing.


See the cars in front of me double parked? I was just following the trend, double parked too. Hehe


This is what we ordered:


Braised chicken feet. My favourite if it is fried and cooked with mushroom but this is nice too. Will go back for more of this next time. The 'char siu yoke' is really tender. We want to order 'siu yoke' (roasted pork), but according to the lady boss, it is sold off within the first hour. So at around 1 pm or earlier there wont be any more 'Siu Yoke'. This Char Siu is also one of their specialties. I saw some one ordered steam fish too and I am sure they served other dishes too.
Hot soup.
Chilli sauce.

And this is the name of the stall: It is not Reataurant Hoe Kee but the one next to it. Written in the signboard is Makanan Nasi Ayam in Malay and the rest were written in Mandarin, JIA JIA LAI..........

Big Brain

Went to Mid Valley for shopping today but park my car at The Garden car park for the first time.

I always have problem locating my car after shopping so I played smart this time. I took some pictures of the location where I parked my car.

After shopping almost the whole day I forgot which lift I used earlier. So I showed the picture in my camera to the security guard and he pointed to the correct lift suppose to lead to the carpark where I parked my car.

But strangely, the picture in the camera showed B85 P4 but I walk the whole place and passed by all the B85, could'nt remember how many of it, but still no sign of my car.

I was panic because I could'nt find my car, also because I was all alone in the carpark and with so many emails telling about the happening at carpark at the shopping complexes, I was worried, really worried for my security.


At last I found my car. It was parked at B86. Actually I stood near my car and took a picture of the pillar opposit my car. Hahaha smart right?

'Big Head Prawn' Haha

I Am Back!


I think as a blogger I need to be more responsible and not just leave my blog on sleeping mode for too long. Anyway this time I have a good excuse for doing so.


Actually I had a problem with my computer. It just closed down every few minutes and I cant reformat my computer before I save up my important files.
Today I called the HP care center and they help guide me to Save Mode and son told me to save file in the extra hard disk in my computer from Safe Mode. Oh, I didn't know I can do that to save the files. I should have asked them earlier. Anyway I will keep all my important file in an external hard disk to save all these trouble in the future.

Being unable to access my blog and go visiting other blogs is really a torture for me.
.
I do miss you, you, you and you. Do you miss me?

Home Sweet Home



I have just sent away my Old bulky TV set together with some other old items from my home to the recycle centre.

Now I have lots of space for some new furnitures and a new TV set. Should I go for Sumsung TV or Toshiba TV? A leather sofa set or one with fabric which need to wash often?

I really have to have some thinking or I might end up regret again which happened very often to me.


Do you have anything to give away for charity or for recycle? Please contact : 03-90211888 or visit their website: recyclecharity.org

Living With The Hooligans

There are fighting at the USJ area among the residents because part of the residents has converted the garden into guarded and gated community which has caused more inconvenience than any good. They use the ugly fencing to fence up the place and employ some dummy security guards to harass the residents and put up the barricades wherever they like and close it whenever they like it.
The above is the barricade broken by some angry residents of this area.
.
No body sees the fight but they only see the ugly fencing and the dummy security guard getting fatter everyday.
.
The entrance and exit near my house is closed permanently. Due to this I have to often park my car opposite my house to avoid taking a big turn just to drop my marketing and out again using the steps I built. The same steps I use to take to go garden which is so convenience is now removed and the area fenced up.
.
Hey, I am no criminal, I don't harassed people, I don't collect unlawful money, I don't misled the residents like you and why am I being caged in like you, committee members?
. The above picture is the fencing right in front of my house's main gate. I put the newspaper there to show how ugly it looks with one side lower than the other. The committee members has either done it purposely because I objected to the gated and guarded idea or they really are not qualify to take the responsibility of the community's security and our garden's image.
.
With most of the road closed, I just couldn't imagine what will happen in case of emergency. The fire brigade or ambulance have to take time to look for entrance or exit or they have to take time to breakdown the closed and locked gate. What is the point of building the entrance and sealed it?
.
My personal life is badly affected by this group of hooligan.
.
I am very confused. When there is no road, the people rally and request to have road built and when there is road, they allowed it closed. Any logic?

Moon Cake Festival


Tomorrow, 3rd October, is the Mid-Autumn Moon Festival or Moon Cake festival or lantern festival, which is on the 15th day of the 8th month of Chinese lunar calendar. On the day the moon is believe to be roundest and brightest signalling a time of completeness and abundance.

I usually celebrate in my mum's house with my sisters, brothers and the children. After the dinner, we move the table outside the house and savor the mooncake with Chinese tea, peanut, fruits etc... while the children parade with their colourful lanterns.
It is indeed a very happy get together every year.

Eat First, Pay Later

Today dinner at Dynasty Dragon Seafood Restaurant, Summit Subang USJ. The name sound really grand ya? I didn't notice there is this restaurant which is situated at Summit Complex facing the main road. I must be having cock eye. Haha!

Sorry for the poor picture quality. Still not sure how to use my Cannon camera in night time.


Waiting for food to be served.


Start with a bowl of shark's fin soup.

Then rice with claypot Toufu.

Stir fried bamboo shoot with prawn.

Steam fish slices. Wah, very fresh and tasty. No wonder people still dine there although the food is a bit expensive.

Mmm... yummy, yummy, yummy..... Don't worry, eat first, next month the bank will tell me how much to pay.
.
Let's enjoy!!

Shopping For A Pram

Recently I was so sick and feeling so weak, I was lying in bed almost everyday doing nothing after the medication. The only thing I could do was close my eyes and recall those old memories, when I was young, when my children were small and all things that happened during those good old days.

Time flies. My children are now grown up.



I remember very well once I went shopping with my elder son who was about 3 years old then, looking for a suitable pram for my new born baby. I brought the maid along thinking she would take care of my son while I do my shopping.
Suddenly I realized my son was not with the maid while she happily shopping with her two eyes, forgetting she was there for a very important mission.

I got panic, almost crying with all sort of funny thinking haunting and clouding my mind. The shopping complex was so crowded and I was wondering how to find my son in the sea of people.

I did not go to the information centre thinking it wouldn't help and even if they announced, a small boy would not know how to response to the announcement. I didn’t realize then that it could help alert the security and also I had under estimated my son’s capability. Luckily I have always told my son what to do if he is lost in a shopping complex, to either find a security guard or stand at a corner until I come.


Suddenly I saw my son standing in one corner as if he was waiting for me to fetch him. Oh! What a relief to see him!

I found the pram later but the choice were quite limited at the shopping complex.

If you are looking for a pram too why not try this online shopping site with 3000 stores to offer you anything and everything you need with better deal and saving. Happy shopping!!

Oh God! I May Be Carrying H1N1

I am having flu, cough and sore throat. Symptoms very close to the recent epidemic, which make me a little panic now.

I was not worried earlier and have been travelling to Kuching last month to visit my friends and been to some trade show display centre, visit all PC fair exhibit booths at KL Convention Centre, to PD for a break and to the shopping centre for the BIG sales. All those places were very crowded which I think is not advisable to expose ourselves there.

Now suddenly I am down with flu, cough and sore throat. Although confirmed by the doctor that I have no fever I still worry that the medication may weaken my immune system. Now I have to be very careful with my diet, making doubly sure I eat well and keep physical and mentally strong.

I think I should be staying at home for the time being, and not out to spread the flu to others. So just forget about the grand sales and the MATTA fair which will be starting 4th September at the moment.

Look at the *smart* Orang Utan below, unlike me, they have no health problem, no worry, no pressure, no financial need, just live a carefree and happy life!

Fresh Air And Sun Shine

Take a cool dip in the swimming pool and relaxing by the pool away from home. That was what I have just done last week and I think I will do it more often from now on.
Went to Avillion Port Dickson Water Challet last week. PD is just about 1.5 hours drive away from where I am staying now and yet I have negleted it so long. The last I went there was more than 5 years ago.






Port Dickson is my home town. I grown up there and my home was just next to the popular seaside at Teluk Kemang. Picture below shown the place where I used to visit almost everyday when I was young, picking seashell either alone or with friends.

I have changed a lot *ol oredi* but the beach is still very much the same.



The picture below is the Blue Lagoon. There were some development there but still looks a little quite.

Hey, Mr Postman

I am feeling relieved and in a happier mood recently. Hmm.. Wonder why?

The bad neighbors have moved out, yeah!!!

Since I heard they were moving out few months ago, I have been holding my breath counting the day and hoping that they will not change their mind and stay on.

I am not the only one bullied by them. Their daughter-in-law has moved out earlier because she couldn’t stand the bully too.

Actually their presence were causing me worry and lots of inconvenience. See, I have my own letter box but some of the letters ended up in their rubbish bin, why? Could it be Mr. Postman dropped wrongly into their box or they came stealing it from my letter box while I was out? This has caused me great concern but nothing much I could do about it.



Some of you must be thinking how am I so sure that my letters were missing and they were the one stealing it or Mr. Postman dropped the letters wrongly. Here is the proof:

They don’t have a rubbish chute and they place a rubbish bin in front of my house which irritates me a lot. Sometimes the stray dogs and cats came messed up the bin and there were twice I found my letters inside the bin. I was really angry but I couldn’t do anything, just pretended nothing has happened rather than making a scene out of it.

If you have a bullying neighbor like my ex, I suggest you get a whitehall mailbox with a lock and keep a bull dog for double security.

Now that they have moved, I should praise myself for being so patience, tolerant, good hearted etc…etc… etc.. hehehe....self praise…..
