My First Digital Camera

Nov 30, 2007

All this while, I used either my SIL's camera or my K800i phone camera to shoot the pictures. I have always thinking of buying a digital camera. Last Friday, when I was shopping at MP, I passed by Fotokem. Just for the fun of it, I enquired the man for Sony latest cybershot camera, Album-T or Sont Cyber-shot DSC T2.

Throughout our conversation, the man actually recommended me to take Canon Ixus 860 IS than going for the stylish Sony Cybershot camera. The features in Canon is greater (wide angle, 3.8x optical zoom, multi-face detection) & the picture quality in the outdoor & indoor are equally good as well. With the price of RM 1499, they have given me 2GB memory card, 3 years warranty, one mini tripod & a pouch too. Moreover, it was the last day of promotion. So without much hesitation, I have bought my very first digital camera finally.

What Is He Doing?

Nov 24, 2007

What is happening with Kai Jun? Something smelly?

No, no, no! He is on nebulizer treatment. He has to visit this GP twice a day for treatment & today is the 6th day. He is such a sensible boy. When he stepped into the consultation room, he would sit quietly for doctor to examine him. Then he will walk to the other room & to prepare himself to put on this nebulizer.

According to my SIL, this treatment helps to open the bronchi, which are the airways of the lungs. The medicine relaxes the muscles around the airways. It is an aerosol and is given to through an aerosol machine (nebulizer).

I remembered when he was about 4-5 months old, he was on this nebulizer as well. It is kind of painful to see him suffering at this young age. However, I must praise him for being so obedient & clever. Hence, my younger brother & I decided to reward him with the Thomas & Friends Road & Rail set.

Anyway, my SIL suspected that KJ has inherited her bad gene, allergy! So I just wish that he will recover soon & stay healthy always.

Bacon Wrapped Asparagus Bundles

I was craving for this finger food since last week. BB cooked it for us but only one per person. How naughty he is to keep me missing of this food so badly.

I decided to try out his recipe when I did my shopping at Jusco this afternoon. I modified the recipe by using pork tenderloin instead of bacon & I did not use salmon in my recipe.

It is an easy recipe & it turned out to be overwhelming one.

The Truth Is Finally Out!

Nov 13, 2007

While on my way to Seremban this morning, my Toyota’s customer service called me. They confirmed that my car jerking was due to the petrol problem. They have withdrawn the sample for me so that I could make a complaint to the petrol station. However, they told me that if I have pumped V-Power, the colour of the fuel supposed to be blue & not red.

So, I called up Shell Customer Service to check the details needed for lodging a complaint to Shell. The CS also confirmed that the fuel color for V-Power is blue. So what have I filled it in to my car? Seriously, I was confused. The receipt was inside m car. I will have to check it when I’m back to the workshop.

Haha… I’m like a superstar in Toyota. All their staffs were looking at me. I followed the CS to their service bay & they showed me the bottle of fuel that gotten from my car. All the foremen came to me. When I checked my petrol receipt, then I see this RM 1.88/litre. Then I know that I have made a huge mistake. This is not V-Power price (RM 2.15/litre). The fuel is called as Regular. Ah…. How can this be? The repair quotation from Toyota is not cheap either. RM 1300+ for changing the filter pump, fuel pump, spark plugs & labour cost.

I have no concrete reasons to complain to the petrol station now. What a price that I have to pay for making such a silly mistake! But I don’t understand why Shell uses the same pump handler for both V-Power & Regular. My friends told me that there is a note on top stating it is VP or Regular one. I’m not trying to push the blame to Shell, but logically, for those who can’t read, they can only recognize the colour, right? Anyway, I will convey this message to Shell for their improvement. Who knows one fine day when you bumped into the petrol kiosk, you’ll notice the change in the handler for the Regular pump. Haha… please remember who is the heroine behind ya.

My uncle who is a mechanic has advised me to refill my tank after finishing the existing culprit. He asked me not to waste money changing the pump. I double confirmed with my brother’s mechanic & he told me the same thing as well. So I immediately called up Toyota to stop the parts ordering.

I made a little research from the web. Shell is the pioneer to go 100% unleaded in 1999. So the fuel that I got into my car is Formula Shell Regular Unleaded (92 Octane). Toyota Vios recommended octane is 93. So what does octane mean? A lower octane rating means less power only. It will not harm your engine but only sluggish a bit. But some also said that it is not good for Electronic Fuel Injection (EFI) as it will clog up the sensors. Another suggestion given by the car expert is you can buy a bottle of octane booster with the money saved and regain some power.

Anyway, I have concluded that I will not use V-Power anymore unless the handler is changed. Haha….

Huey Jin, Uncle Sam, Chin Nee, Stephanie & Emila, thousand apologies for the wrong information given & thanks for the concerns. I feel so shameful now. ;-P

He Has Landed in The Ward!

Nov 12, 2007

I am so unlucky today. After having lunch with my friends at Melaka Raya, I decided to feed my car's stomach at Shell petrol kiosk at Bandar Hilir. I usually go to Shell petrol kiosk at Semabok. However, due to the urgent signal given by my car, I have no choice but to find the nearest station. I paid RM 73 for V-power as I will be travelled to Seremban tomorrow.

After collecting back my stock from a clinic near Munshi Abdullah, I continued my journey to Ong Kim Wee. While driving, I can feel my car jerking. Then I stopped opposite my brother's pharmacy. Oh no... He was so restless. His heart is pumping slower and slower. What is happening? Please.... please don't do that to me! Should I call an ambulance?

So I S.O.S. my brothers. Godzila (my elder brother) called his mechanic. Uncle mechanic came after 20 mins time. He suspected that it might due to the spark plug. So he drove my 'beloved' to his hospital.

Of course I called BB to manja2 lor. After telling him the entire story, he told me that this jerk might also caused by the mixture of the petrol with water. Hmm.. make sense too.

About 7pm, I received a piece of bad news from brother Ralph. Uncle mechanic failed to rescue 'my love' and has asked us to send it to the service center. He changed the spark plug, he tested with his high-tech computer, he thought of all the possible problems & he concluded that the culprit must be the petrol!!

I was so frustrated with such unethical behaviour. Though petrol price is high, do you think that it is right to earn max profit by cheating the customers? I definitely going to lodge a complaint to Shell later. BB called again & advised me to get the report from Toyota first. Then only officially lodge the complaint to Shell. 2 possibilities; the petrol kiosk owner really mixes their petrol with kerosene (according to uncle mechanic, they just recently changed owner) or during their recent renovation, the water was kept inside. BB always acts so calmly when it comes to problem solving.

I will see what is the investigation outcome from Toyota tomorrow. Then I will share it with you all, ya. Folks, to prevent this incident to happen again, please visit those reputable petrol kiosk, ok.

Garage Floors

Nov 10, 2007

What will you do with your garage if you have a chance to renovate it? If so, how about remodeling the garage floors too?

I did not know that there are so many designs available for garage flooring. The garage flooring tiles are the ideal one because it helps to solve the problematic flooring. You can even design your own flooring by entering the dimensions of your garage, the tile type and template into the system. Then, it will correctly tell you the amount needed for each color that you have chosen.

With such a simple step and also easy installation, let us have a refresh our garage floor for this coming Christmas.

Blue Ribbon Campaign for Childhood Cancer

According to our Health Minister, Datuk Seri Dr. Chua Soi Lek that at least 3 children are diagnosed with cancer every day in our country. The saddest case is when the parents has refused to face the fact that their child is disgnosed with cancer. They even went to seek for their the treatment from the bomoh or sensei. As such, the child was delayed for treatment & it worsen their disease state. I believe it only happened in the rural areas due to their poor knowledge towards the diseases.

Have you heard of Blue Ribbon Campaign? It is a campaign that create the awareness of child cancer in Malaysia. BRC also helps the affected children and their families, particularly those with financial crisis by raising funds for treatment & help grant wishes of the ill kids.

We have given our support to Blue Ribbon Campaign by planting a wish in Rainbow of Life Forces. Do you wish to plant a wish to? Besides, with the 100,000 coin boxes, you can also make a donation at Celcom outlets, CIMB or selected media organization to help in the fund raising program.

Happy Blogging Wish

Nov 8, 2007

So sweet of Lovely Mummy to send me this encouraging poem. Even since I joined the blog world, I must admit that I have get to know many great bloggers & have learnt a lot from them as well. I look forwards to read their blog each day. I try to give my best supports to them too. However, if I did offend anyone of you, please forgive me, ya.

This Happy Blogging Wish came from the mom behind the Poems For Cards website, a website created with much effort and talent and it’s definitely a website worth visiting.

So I wish to pass this meaningful poem to the following dedicated bloggers:

Happy Birthday, Little Car Lover!

Today is my nephew, Kai Jun's 2-Year-Old birthday. Happy Birthday, little monster! His birthday celebration started since last week. Before his big day, he has already receiving many presents from us and friend. A set of study table and chair, white board, Disney Car's T-shirt, bermuda and cap, Bod The Builder and bicycle. So lucky!

Then he also shared his joys with his music class's friends. He brought each of them a goodie bag which filled with sweets, biscult, chocolate, jelly, etc. Then on Friday night,
Winnie and her parents also had a buffet dinner celebration with him at Renaissance Hotel.

We also celebrated his birthday yesterday. He seems to enjoy himself very much. Till the end of the celebration, we asked him if he is happy with the birthday celebration. He replied us "ppy" (he can't pronounce the full word yet). My SIL told us that he even insisted to wear the Car's T-shirt to sleep. Hmmm... really a car mania. Haha..

Anyway, just wanna give him our very best wishes. Wishing him to stay happy and healthy throughout his journey. Guess he is having fun in Pontian now. Another round of birthday celebration with my SIL's family.

Hogwarts Invitation

Nov 6, 2007

I received this tag from Jo-N. It really scared me off when I see it. All the name sound so alien to me. Why? Because I'm not a Harry Potter's fan. Oh no! What will I do with this tag? Shall I continue or should I reject it? Hmm.... Ok. I should try it. If I never try, I won't know the fun of it. So here I come, Hogwarts.

I am Hufflepuff with the following in-depth results:
Hufflepuff - 15
Ravenclaw - 11
Gryffindor - 10
Slytherin - 7

*** start copy paste this invitation***

I know what you're all thinking, "Not -another- sorting quiz!", but before you get bored and leave, let me say a few things about it. This is not the ordinary sorting quiz that you're used to. Unlike all those other quizzes infesting the Internet, this quiz actually sorts you for who you are as a person, not because your favorite animal is a lion.

I made this quiz as a reaction to all the bad sorting quizzes. The problem with most of the existing quizzes, is that the questions rarely have anything to do with which house you would actually be sorted into. Your favorite color doesn't effect which house you belong to. Not every Gryffindor likes defense against the dark arts, not every Slytherin likes potions. Just look at Harry, Ron, and Hermione. Each is in Gryffindor, but each has a completely different disposition. Harry's father was often a bully and a thief, yet he was still in Gryffindor.

This quiz will actually ask you psychological questions with a variety of answers that can't easily be determined as to which house they fit into. This was meant to be more like what the Sorting Hat does. Just remember though that you must answer these questions truthfully in order to get an accurate answer.

Also these questions are written to take place in our world, not the world of Harry Potter. I didn't give a Harry Potter theme to the quiz because the answers are more accurate this way. As Muggles, we don't have any idea what it's like to be faced with a troll or a bogart and we've never played quiddich. Our answers may be skewed as to how our favorite characters would act instead of ourselves. However, we all know what it's like to live in the Muggle world because we do it every day.Please take the test and copy paste this *master list* after you are sorted and don't forget to tag your friends! Let's see which tower has the most members!

Under One Roof Services

Nov 5, 2007

We love traveling. For our past few light and easy trips, we have made our hotel reservations through this particular online store. Hubby B always tells me that they are the cheapest amongst the online hotel reservation. Somehow I have doubt and will still searching for the best rate from the internet. Well, I would say that he is right. The rates offered are cheap and they have the 24-hour live customer service to assist you.

This opportunity has been opened to me for quite sometimes. However, I’m quite reluctant to write any of the review with regards to this website. Please do not misunderstand that we had a bad experiences with this site. Frankly speaking, I don’t even know its existence when I did my online hotel search previously. I know I am being unfair because of condemning it without visit the site.

I decided to visit Hotel Reservations today. I compared it with our favourite site. Oh I can’t believe my eyes. Is that true? I don’t believe it and I kept trying with few more hotels. It is true. We own you an apology, Hotel Reservations. Both rates are quite comparable and at times Hotel Reservations can be cheaper than our favourite one. The only suggestion would be to add in the travelers’ review towards the hotel they have stayed. With this, it helps the next traveler to decide his or her hotel booking besides the rate factor.

Hotel Reservations provide you with under one roof services; from online flight booking, vacation package, vacation rental, hotel reservation to car rental. I like their search option menu. It is quite details and is particularly useful for customers with different preferences.

Luckily I did not waste my times exploring this new site. We will definitely put Hotel Reservations in our list for our coming holidays.

Review Before Placing Your Bet

Nov 3, 2007

Do you gamble? I do but just for the fun of it. I bet on auspicious numbers sometimes. However, I have not had the chance to strike yet. Maybe I’m not persistence enough to follow them through for few bets. My superior is a gambling freak. He bets on numbers almost 3 times a week. The money he spent is huge on each single bet. I advised him to stop betting so huge but he would always tell me that no risk, no gain. It is really hurt when you know that your bets are gone with the wind. I would say that his bet is merely based on his luck rather than background analysis.

Surprise from Him

Nov 2, 2007

I brought my yoga mat for BB when he picked me up from my house this evening (I wanted to buy a new one but have not do so because I couldn't find the one that I want).

After a late dinner (BB went for badminton), I went up for shower. As I walked into the room, I saw my old yoga mat lying on the floor. Something caught my eyes. Hmmm... what is it on the bed? Eh....... A yoga mat that I want. I am looking for a yoga mat with bag but I couldn't find it here. I did share with BB last week & so thoughtful of him to remember what I have said.

Hubby B, thanks with lots of love! So I have no excuse to skip my yoga class again. Hehe....
