Sleepless Nights Make Me Crazy

I am feeling very upset for a few days now.

I couldn’t eat,
I couldn’t sleep,
I couldn’t study for my exam,
I couldn’t settle down my heart at all to do anything.

I need someone to talk to, but nobody have the time to listen to me. Everybody is busy that I really understand.

Anyway, I have to clear my head otherwise I will go crazy, so I made an appointment to see Inspector in USJ police station.

I told her why I am up set, sleepless, no concentration, worry, no appetite, etc… I should be seeing a doctor for that right, but different profession treat different sickness and I was sure I went to the right place. Only inspector can give me some clue to my worry and anger now.

To my surprise she lends her ears and I really thank her from the bottom of my heart.

Ok, let me tell you what I tell the inspector.

I told her I lost my laptop, my purse, 2 handbags, and cash in RM and Sing dollar, my Will, my EPF statement, Rolex watch, Gold chain, children’s game station, 2 hand phones, my son’s bag etc… to the recent break-in. I know you don’t feel the pinch, because it doesn’t prick you. Ha, that should be the way, I agreed with you.

I was away from 5.30 – 9.30 pm for dinner and came back found my back door open, and front window grill removed, front door tried but failed.

Something I couldn't’ understand is, the back lane is fence up with iron grill and with the security around, and there are still so many break-ins. And they don’t have to wait till mid night. It happened at about 9.00 pm, yes, that early.

My area is split up into paying and non paying residents. The paying residents are marks and non paying residents are unmarked. I am within unmarked group. I am now wondering whether the thief came to me because I am not paying or they really go at random. And who are those thieves? Which, lots of people tell me stories behind the break-ins. Now it is up to you to guess.

I SMS to inform a few committee and ask whether they are aware there are break in in USJ 11/4. All of them told me are 0 cases. Anyway one of the committee called me back and tells me I should join them. Ha, so they can guarantee there won’t be break-in again? Wao, that sound DANGEROUS to me.

I have made some suggestion to the Inspector regarding the G & G (Gated n Guarded) community. I am happy with the answer and happy about what she is going to do with my suggestion.

She also promised that she will ask the petrol to come into the gated area and not depend on the guards.

She said USJ6 area although not gated but with the petrol the crime has drop a lot which I totally agreed. Well, they are doing something, so why take law into your own hands when the police are there. Although they cannot be 100% also like the G & G but at least we don’t have to be caged in and with limited exit and entrance.

Ok, I felt so much better now, thanks for reading my grumbling.

Still no appetite. Just hope I can sleep like a baby tonight.

Back To School


I am now attending a course. An intensive 5 months course and then after that I will be on a new job and will be a new Molly.
.
I have stopped work. Which mean I have no income for this 5 months. So now I have to tie up my stomach, eat LESS, NO SHOPPING, spend LESS, NO entertainment, NO outing, NO tea or coffee time with friend, LESS contact with friends. It sounds so dry and boring right?

But is ok, I can blog ma! I can also blog hop leh!

I will not reveal what course I am taking at the moment till the end. You can make a wild guess but I will zip-up my mouth on that at the moment.

Just some clue in case you might want to guess.

In the new job I will always have an audience, have company, never lonely, interesting, away from home, eat out, less home cook I think the clue is long enough for a catch.

See you at your blog!!

My Cash Return Invested

If you have read my earlier post you would have known that I have sold off a car and make some money from it.

Now the question is, where am I to put this money?

So where? where? where is the best place to invest my hard earned money? Fixed Deposit? Mutual Fund? Share Market? Gold bullion?

I think the best choice is to invest in gold.

Ok, set, buy gold bullion is the best answer for me!

Smiling All The Way To The Bank

I am with a big SMILE and on the way to the bank, HA HA HA!! Want to know where I get the big fat cheque?
.
Is a pleasent morning and I am heading to the PUSPAKOM, a place where mostly runner or male are there sending the car for inspection, which is compulsory if you want to sell your car and transfer ownership.
When I sell my car, I usually sell it personally to the buyer and not to the car agent. That was because if I sell to the agent I loose out at least Rm2,000 - RM5,000 depending on you car condition, model, year make, and bargaining with the agent, etc......
.
With the new ruling it could be a little hassle to sell it yourself because you need to send your car to Puspakom SDN BHD for inspection to get a letter of clearance before you can have your name transfered.
.
There are many reason given by the Puspakom SDN BHD why we should send our car for inspection but only 2 important reasons I think is important, ie 1. to see whether the car has a 'cut and joint' or 2. a stolen vehicle. Other than that since it is a must to send for inspection and there is a payment of RM30.00 they might as well give a thorough check up.
.
I send for inspection myself this time because the buyer wanted to send a runner to do it for him and I was worried the runner may run away with my car or take my car for a rambling before sending it back to me. So I have a deal with the buyer that I send it for inspection and he pay me RM100.00 inclusive of RM30.00 inspection fee. He paid me because he has to pay the runner double for doing it.
.
I arrived at the PUSPAKOM at about 7.45 am and waited behind other vehicles. Not too long que, only about 15 cars before me.
There are two counters before entering the inspection area. There I fill in a form, submit the original car registration card and pay a fee of RM30.00.
After that I headed toward the inspection area. The whole inspection together with the letter of clearance took about 1/2 hour.
.
After that I went to the Road Transport Department to get the necessary form for transfer of ownership and have my ic verified by the officer, free of charge.
.
ThenI met up with the new owner to get the fat banker's cheque and headed to the bank.
.
Caution! Do not simply trust any buyer. Keep you eye big if you want to sell the car yourself. It is not difficult but could be dangerous especially to people so small size like me. Hehe. and do not hand your key to them, get someone to go along with you if possible but I did it alone. Hahaha my worry is over at last.

Online Tuition


Any one of you having problem with Algebra 1 or Algebra 2?

Of course the answer is NO because almost 100% of my visitors are either working adults, parents or grandparents, right?

But you may be indirectly facing the problem when your sisters, brothers or your children come to you for help in this area. If yes, are you able to help? No? Why not try the algebra help online?

A Task I Cannot Avoid


Went to the new Toyota Service Centre , Subang Jaya to service my car yesterday. Estimated 3 hours job, so I decided to wait instead of going home. Well, I have no choice, because it is too early to get someone to fetch me home and to those who are working is not convenience too to trouble them.

3 hours wait could means a long time if you are sitting some where hot and stuffy. But at the new Toyota service centre at Subang Jaya, waiting is a pleasant experience. There were many people waiting, some with their laptop, some reading newspaper and there are a few computers for some restless to serf net and get connected while waiting for their car.

I sat comfortably there watching my favourite magic show after reading The Star and Sin Chew Daily papers, sipping coffee and eating sandwich I bought on the way there. Wah, I am feeling so at home.

I used to hate sending car for repair but after yesterday's experience I think I dont mind sending my car for service again in the future.

I know, I know many of you don't have to worry about sending car for repair because there are some one to do it for you, right? Lucky you, but for me, I have no no no choice. I will have to do it myself as long as I want to own a car.

Lunch

Went to 3K sports complex for a class recently with a friend of my and had lunch at the restaurant inside the building. They serve all sort of foods like Nasi lemak, various type of Chinese noodles, ice-kacang, curry fishhead etc.........
.
I ordered nasi lemak (RM8.00) with mutton curry,
hmmm....that was my type of mutton curry. Very nice.

And my girlfriend ordered Cantonese noodle (RM5.50) cooked by a Malay chef,

that was not bad but I would still prefer it with pork.

We each had a glass of teh tarik, which both agreed was nice too.

The second day we went back there for a smaller cup of teh tarik after our lunch else where. Hmm... I still have to urge to go back for more teh tarik, I just wonder why?

FW: FW: FW: Mail Tracking---Must read

An email I received months ago TO ALL MY EMAIL BUDDIES :

Here is something everyone should read. If you don't, you're hurting yourself and your email buddies.
Please read to the end.

By now, I suspect everyone is familiar with www.snopes.com and/or www.truthorfiction.com for determining whether information received via email is just that: true/false or fact/fiction. Both are excellent sites.

Advice from Snopes.com --Very important!

1) Any time you see an email that says forward this to '10' of your friends, sign this petition or you'll get bad luck or good luck, you'll see something funny on your screen after you sent it. It almost always has an email tracker program attached that tracks the cookies and emails of those folks you forward the mail to!

The host sender is getting a copy each time it gets forwarded and then it is able to get lists of 'active' email addresses to use in SPAM emails or sell to other spammers. Even when you get emails that tells you to send the email on if you're not ashamed of God/Jesus .... that's email tracking! They're playing on our conscience! These people don't care how they get your email addresses - just as long as they get them. Also, emails that talk about a missing child or a child with an incurable disease 'how would you feel if that was your child' .......they are all email tracking!!! Ignore them! Don't participate!

2) Almost all emails that ask you to add your name and forward on to others are similar to that 'mass letter' years ago that asked people to send business cards to the little kid in Florida who wanted to break the Guinness Book of Records for the most cards. All that was to get names and 'cookie' tracking information for telemarketers and spammers - to validate active email accounts for their own profitable purposes.

You can do your friends and family members a GREAT favor by sending this information to them; you will be providing a service to your friends, and will be rewarded by not getting thousands of spam emails in future!

If you have been sending out (ie. FORWARDING) the above kinds of email, now you know why you get so much SPAM!

Do yourself a favour and STOP adding your name(s) to those types of listings, regardless how inviting they might sound, or make you feel guilty if you don't .. it's all about getting email addresses - nothing more! One email doing the rounds for the third time is the whales being killed on a beach in Denmark . Email address of every one who forwarded that are now with the spammers!

You may think you are supporting a GREAT cause - YOU ARE NOT! Instead, you will be getting tons of junk mail later and very possibly a virus attached! Plus, you are helping the spammers get rich!!

Also, email petitions are NOT acceptable to the White House, Congress, UNESCO, UNICEF or any such organizations. To be acceptable, petitions must have a signed signature and full address of the person signing the petition. So this is a waste of time and you're just helping the email trackers.

AND MOST IMPORTANTLY, DON'T FORGET TO:

1. DELETE other people’s email addresses BEFORE forwarding emails that you receive.

2. When forwarding/sending email, send as b.c.c. so that the receipients'
email addresses cannot be seen or tracked.

You notice that the only name up top of this email is mine. If you wish to FORWARD this, please DELETE my name/ email address

............................. email end

I Love New Year

First of all 'GONG XI FA CAI' to all who are celebrating Chinese New Year and those who are not, a Happy Holiday!!!

I love New Year, why? Can anyone guess why?



Is it becauce of lots of nice food, new cloths, new shoes, holiday, family reunion, meeting with old friends .............................???


That is not the correct answer ....


I love new year because only during this time, few dayssss before Chinese New Year I am exceptionally hard working. You see, I dont like house chores. I hate it, but when new year approaching, I can clean up every corner of my house, from front to back, from downstairs to upstairs, from cupboard to store-room, from room to room, all tolets, painting, grills, under the table, behind the cupboard, not a single space is spare.
I have to thank the bangla-worker for helping me last month to clean up places which are too high and difficult for me to clean. Luckily I have them helping or else it would be much more difficult for me to clean up now.



I must also thank the 'Cai Shen Yeh' (God of Prosperity) who motivated me to endure all the pain and ache in my body to complete all the cleaning, scrubing, painting of my house single handedly . Although there are still places not clean up yet but I think 'Cai shern Yeh' will still visit me because I have tried my very best.
See, see, see what the 'Cai Sern Yeh' brought for me? Worth the effort, right? HAHAHA

I am having a very Happy New Year and a Happy New Year to you, you and you too!!!!

Fried Banana

I had fried banana for tea today. It is crispy and so yummylicious.
.
It is very simple to make, I mean it is very easy to make it crispy. I learned this from my cousin sister when I visited her in Port Dickson during last Christmas holiday at PD, when 6 of us finished the whole big plate of fried banana she prepared at least enough for 15 people. We felt very embarassing because before she fried, all of us were saying that each of us will have one or two pieces because we had just taken our lunch.
.
So here is the simple way to fried banana:
For batter : Mixed Flour, little salt, sugar and water. Dip the banana, she use 'pisang nipah', in the batter and deep fry it till golden colour.
.
Here is the end result. Inside is soft and sweet while outside is crispy.

I had that with a cup of tea, how about you? Tea or coffee?
