I'm attending a training in office today. Suddenly, there is an announcement throught the speaker: "Attention please, there is a fire in the car park, please move all your car from there!" Just after listen to the announcement, we were keeping our stuff so fast. my colleague ran so fsat out of the room to go rescue his car.
When we walked out, through the window in 3rd floor, we could see a huge crowd were in front of the window. I manage to get a glimpse from there. It's really on fire and it's consider a big one. A car was on fire in the car park. The car was park almost the back of the car park. The fire engine was already there. The car beside was also get burnt, ko lian lor..... sooooooo poooooor......... Bo tai bo chi kena, pity.......
I managed to get some photos from my colleague. He also got it from friends. So fast they already distributed the photos. Hahaha, really effective. First 2 photos are from CS. Thanks to him.
For those who want to buy 4D, let me know, I will tell you know the car's number. :)

From my new house to my old house, I only need around 15-20 mintues. Within this time frame, I have met few people who don't obey the traffic law.
First, there is this stupid Honda City drive by an indian, just over take me. It's ok to over take me if you want but he did it in the double line. You are not suppose to over take people if there is a double line. I don't know why he wants to do that, since the traffic light is RED! He still needs to stop there and wait. STUPID!
After this, when I go until the big roundabout, 2 motorcycles were making a cheat turn. They suppose to go through the roundabout and turn back to the 6 o'clock position. I think they are lazy to wait the traffic light, so they just turn on their right to make their life easier.
The third one, I hate this the most! I stop at the traffic light before turning into my housing area. There is an indian inside a van behind me. He just spit on the floor through his van's window. I'm really canont see this kind of uncivilized people. No wonder Penang is full of rubbish and dirty! I'm wondering, will they spit inside their own house? I don't think so. Then why do it in the public?
The first 2 cases can get a samman if there is police. But, if really police is there, sure will settle it without a samman. You know, i know. In fact, everyone knows about it. Hmmmm, then police is for what then? No idea.

I have set up a new blog. YES, new blog! That is why I'm busy with it the whole yesterday. It's not really easy to set up a new one but I manage to get it done finally.
My main theme for the new blog will be food, travel, technology and make money online. I will share the food from different places, places that I have visited, discussion on technology/IT related stuf, including tutorial and BKM (Hahahaha, sure most of you don't know what is BKM. This is the acronym widely used in my company. It's Best Known Method) for PC problem, and last but not least, how to make money online (This will be the hot topic!).
For this blog, I will continue to write. Most likely will be more on my life and things happen around me, need to match the title of this blog mar...... "My Mood, My Feeling". :)
At first, I think of moving my whole blog to the new domain, but it's better for me to have another one rather than move the whole blog there. I have my reason for doing so. I'm still in the middle of tweaking here and there since it's new to me. Please feel free to visit my new blog, provide comments, if any and link me to yor blog. Hehehe.

I have been reading on the RSS Feed stuff for the whole afternoon. I tried to make one on my blog but I just not able to get it done. I send an offline message to Nic for help. Hahaha, Nic always will be the one I look for if I have any questions on this kind of stuff.
Anyway, I continued to search and found the way. :) What you need to do is, go to FeedBurner. Enter your URL and it will do all the stuff for you. SO EASY!! Now, you can see a column subscribe me on the right hand side. If you click on the feed button (the orange one), you can actually subscribe to my blog. So whenever there is an update, you will receive a notification. It's better than let you come to my blog but with no new post.
You can try it out if you want to have a RSS Feed on your blog. You can ask me if you have any problem on the process. Good Luck!

Update: Too bad.... Lee Chong Wei lose to Bao Chun Lai. Seems that the lines man was not so fair in this game. :(
Electronic commerce (e-commerce) has become popular since the existence of internet. People can sell their own goods or buy from others through the web. From Wikipedia, Electronic commerce, commonly known as e-commerce or eCommerce, consists of the buying and selling of products or services over electronic systems such as the Internet and other computer networks. E-bay is one of the well-known and successful e-commerce website. Besides E-bay, another famous e-commerce site that I knew is Tao Bao. It is the largest e-commerce site from China.
Before you can sell your goods online, you need to have a website. In addition, you also need to have e-commerce software in order for your site to be working. What is the software you need? Let me explain to you. When you go to a grocery stall, normally you will use a shopping cart to put all your goods inside before go to the cashier. So it makes sense that for e-commerce site, you need to provide a shopping cart to users.
What are you waiting for? Start to sell your goods by setting up an e-commerce website now.

Today, woke up quite early, around 7.20am. I have no choice since I promised my mum to fetch her to market. So, I need to force myself to wake up although today I'm off day. Anyway, good for me also to wake up in the early morning.
The sky was blur..... The Sun was also not clear. I took the photo of the Sun. From my room, I can see a group of people in the blank space doing some exercise. Wow, they are really early! If for me, I will sleep until don't know what time.... lazy me..... I also took photos of them.... hehehe....
When reached market, I bought 2 buns for my own stomach.... I finished 2 of them within minutes. It's proved that I'm very very hungry. After my mum finished buying, I saw the Ban Chen Kuey stall. I bought 2 of them, brown sugar. I cannot stand it if I saw those food that I like. Before going back, I bought Curry Mee somemore.
Got home around 9am, quickly on my laptop. Since my show only start at 10am, I went for gym, only go for a while....... Not bad huh, still can go gym. After some workout, rush back to my home and get ready for the show. In the meantime, I ate my Curry Mee and 2 Ban Chan Kuey, means that, I have 2 buns, 2 Ban Chan Kuey and Curry Mee. Eat a lot loh me.... Hor liao....

Some of you may know, I started to blog 2 years back after get influenced by my brother. I'm writing in Chinese at that time. Later, I get to know many friends from China and I moved my whole blog into Sina. Just until July this year, I'm back with English blog and write until now.
Initial purpose of starting a blog is to let my friends and relatives know about my latest news. But now, blogging has already become part of my life. Everyday, the first thing when I login into the internet, is to check my own blog. Then, I will go through my friends' blog, one by one.
There is another reason why I'm so motivated to blog. If I tell you, you will get paid for blogging, will you believe? Some of them will actually answer with a suspicious tone, "Are you sure?", "Really?", "Have you got the money yet?" and etc... What I can tell you is, you really can get paid to blog.
Smorty is the one that can let you blog for money. As a blogger, what you need to do is to write a review/opinion on the advertiser’s product or website. After you submitted and get approved by Smorty, you will get paid. Sounds easy right? Let me explain more to give you all a clearer picture.
For further rules and processes, just go to Smorty.com and find out. Trust me, get paid to blog is so easy with Smorty.

I just posted my hot pot photos earlier and guess what, I got the hot pot invitation from the Cheng Du colleague again on Tuesday night! Such a coincidence. This time, the hot pot was not that hot anymore. They use a wok instead of a pot since they don't have any. Yummy Yummy.....

Last Sunday, before I left for work, the TV is showing the favourite food talk show, Hor chiak. They are introducing the Apong Balik. The stall they interviewed looks so familiar to me. I told my mum it's the stall in front of the Union Primary School in Jalan Burma. My mum said, are you sure? Later, when they finished introducing, yes, it's really the stall in front of Union. I bought from this uncle before.
On that night, I cannot tahan and want to have this Apong Balik. I went out with my colleague to have 2nd dinner (yes, 2nd one since I already took at home before I'm going to work) in Teluk Bayan. There is a van that selling Apong Balik. I told my friend, we go to eat first, then only buy it when we are going back. After finished eating, the van is gone!!! Oh man..... "close shop" already. :(
The next day, which is yesterday night, I still think of the Apong Balik and cannot forget about it. My colleague went out for food and I asked her to buy for me. Finally, she manage to buy it. Hooray........ :) I bought 10!! 5 banana and 5 corn.
If you have the chance to go for a holiday, which country will you choose? US? Japan? China? Canada? Have you ever think of going to Australia for your holidays? For me, if I have a chance to go, I will go and explore it.
Before going for a holiday, information needs to be collected. We need to decide where we want to go. Sydney? Melbourne? Brisbane? Normally, we will only go to one destination. If we have the time and money, maybe we can go round the whole Australia. In order to get all these information, you can go to DialAFlight.
DialAFlight provides all the info including flights, hotel, cars hire, and even holiday ideas. If you have decided to go Brisbane, you can get the details on flights to Brisbane from the website. Besides checking on the website, you can call to DialAFlight to get more details and make a reservation on a Holiday Offers.
With DialAFlight, you will have a great holiday with no regret!

My friend has this instant noodle the other night. Inside the package, there is this small packet of chili, called Hell Chili (Di Yu La Jiao 地狱辣椒). The writing on top of the packet is funny. If you put 1/3, it will be mild hot. 2/3 will be medium hot and full packet will be extra hot.
From my friend, it's just so so, not really that hot... I think it's because most of the people in Malaysia can eat very spicy, my friend is one of them. Actually, I like spicy too. I can eat very spicy when I was in secondary. However, I didn't eat that spicy anymore now.
I still remember, that time when I'm in Costa Rica, It's difficult for me to find chili sauce. Not only Costa Rica, US also the same. People in Costa Rica totally cannot eat spicy food. A little bit of spicy can kill them.
I'm not sure how many of you have tried the Ma La Huo Guo 麻辣火锅 (Spicy Hot Pot). I tried it once. My counter part from Cheng Du came to Penang for training. They brought over the paste for the hot pot. It was so hot!!! You totally cannot drink the soup. You can feel that your tongue is really become numb. The soup is filled with one layer of the chili oil. Just imagine that. I cannot find the photo I took in my laptop. Maybe it's inside my home pc. If I can find the photo, I will post and let you view it.
p/s I found the photos!!! Here you go.....

I went for gym yesterday for the very first time since I moved in. I suppose to go in the morning but I just cannot wake up. I slept quite late the other night. So, I go in the afternoon instead.
The gym room is empty. This is usual. I seldom see people go to gym. It's great that I have made the first move to gym and I hope, I will continue do that when I'm free. You know laa...... I'm a lazy type.
Maybe yesterday was the first time, I felt dizzy after some workout, like lack of oxygen, I think. So, I stopped and return to my house and rest. This morning, when I woke up, I can feel the pain, muscle pain. This proves that, the workout is useful.
Who wants to come join me for the gym? Anyone interested?? :)

My friend delivered a baby girl on the 24 June. It's the same date for my another friend's wedding. So coincidence. I managed to take a photo with her when I visited my friend during August/September. She's so cute.

Since I cannot go celebrate with you, what I can do is, give you a virtual BIG birthday cake with 4 layers and sing a birthday song to you.
Happy Birthday to you,
Happy Birthday to you,
Happy Birthday to Tau Tau,
Happy Birthday to you.
Just finished my company dinner, again...... Previous one is for the whole IT department. Today is only for all the Service Desk department. For me, the purpose of going to the dinner is to eat. The food is consider ok, not really good and not really bad. Oh... the dinner was held in Vistana Hotel.
The theme for the night is Culture of ISD. ISD is our family name (the department family). I just simply wear a colar t-shirt and pants, like what I did for the previous dinner.
No photos for today. I didn't bring camera and I don't feel like taking photos. The food is almost the same as well. I left around 9.15pm since I still need to come back to the office and work from 10pm. Boring.
I'm not really in good condition, headache and slightly fever, I assume. I took panadol before I'm coming to work. Hopefully I will be fine later.

Guang Liang released his latest album Bu Hui Fen Li (Never Apart). It's a nice song. As usual, I think this song will be the karaoke hit like his previous songs, Tong Hua (Fairy Tale) and Yue Ding (Date).
Enjoy the MV.
Normally, before I buy something, I will go to the internet and do some research. I need to make sure the stuff that I will buy is good and with a reasonable or even lower price. Today, when I'm searching for some product information online, I came across another online coupons site, EdealFinder. I just notice that, there are so many coupons and deals out there for us to grab.
I checked the website and found the store I like, Dell. I think I don't need to explain more on what Dell is selling, many will know. From there, I can get Dell coupons for the notebook. I even found Dell discount on the Dell 19 widescreen flat panel LCD monitor. Sounds great huh!
Besides Dell, there are still many merchants coupon you can get from EdealFinder. Go there and explore yourself, for sure you can find the deals you want.

On Deepavali day, our boss invited us to go to his house for lunch. His house is located in Taiping. We departed from Penang at 10.30am. We reached Taiping around 11.45am and our boss was still in the temple. He asked us to reach his house after 12 noon. So, we went to TESCO. :)
TESCO is one of the hypermarket that I prefer to shop from. The price is reasonable and sometimes it's cheap!
After a while, we went to my boss's house. The purpose there is to have lunch! Last year I have been there as well. The mutton that cooked by my boss's dad was superb. I took some photos to "sia" you guys.
Around 3 something, we left.

I like horror movie a lot. Friends of mine will know that too. Some of them said I'm crazy, always like to watch this kind of movies. Watch horror movie also consider crazy? What theory is that? Different people sure have different interests, right? I just ignore them sometimes. Who cares.... As long as I like it....
I've tried to watch horror movie alone in the cinema, ONLY me! I think that time still early and no one is going to watch that movie. So, I'm the only one. It's a thai movie, called Ghost Game. Not bad.
Purpose for writing this post is I want to introduce some horror/thriller movies for you to watch. I checked the movies website and found them.
This will be the movie I'va waited to watch, already can find the download link from internet, but it's the cinema version. I checked from the Singapore Yahoo Movies and knew taht SAW IV is showing in Singapore starting 8 Nov. In Malaysia, these kind of movies are banned, cannot go into the cinema. If it's still showing when I'm in Singapore next month, I will go to watch it! Hehehe. For those that don't know what is this show all about, you can check it from the internet. You need to watch from the first one then follow by SAW II and SAW III. It's a sequel. I can tell you one thing, SAW III is really freak me out. I'm dare to watch it without closing my eyes for the first time but I cannot do it again. Think of it also gerli liao..... Anway, it's Highly Recommneded!!
Jigsaw and his apprentice Amanda are dead. Upon the news of Detective Kerry's murder, two seasoned FBI profilers, Agent Straham (Scott Patterson) and Agent Perez, arrive at the depleted police precinct to help veteran Detective Hoffman (Costas Mandylor) sift through Jigsaw's latest grizzly game and piece together the puzzle. However, when SWAT Commander Rigg, the last officer untouched by Jigsaw (Tobin Bell), is suddenly abducted and thrust into the madman's harrowing game, the officer has 90 minutes to overcome a series of interconnected traps...or face the deadly consequences. Rigg's citywide pursuit leaves a wake of dead bodies, and Hoffman and the FBI uncover clues that lead them back to Jigsaw's ex-wife Jill (Betsy Russell).
The Mist is from Stephen King. I'm a Stephen King's fan. I read some of his book last time. I like. Stephen King's movie always so mysterious and horror. I like his previous movie like IT, Misery, The Langoliers, The Stand, The Shining, etc...... Another Highly Recommended movie!!
The day after a strange and mysterious storm, the citizens of a small town find themselves besieged by hordes of deadly creatures. A disparate group of townsfolk barricade themselves in the local supermarket and struggle for their survival as the creatures outside grow larger and more dangerous, fighting to get inside with ever-increasing ferocity.
This one is I accidentally bumbed into it. I watched the trailer and it seems quite nice. It's some sort like the movie Red Eye and When a Stranger Call. If you like these kind of thriller, maybe you can go check it out. Recommended!!
It's Christmas Eve. Angela Bridges (Rachel Nichols of "Alias" and "Charlie Wilson's War") works late before she leaves for her family's holiday party. When she gets down to the parking garage, she discovers that her car won't start. The garage is deserted and her cell phone doesn't get a signal underground. When security guard Thomas (Wes Bentley of "American Beauty"), comes along and offers to help, Angela nervously accepts his gesture of goodwill. Soon after a failed attempt to start her car, he invites her to a small Christmas dinner he's preparing in the parking office, but she laughs it off. Angela doesn't realise this is no laughing matter - Thomas has been watching her closely for months. His dinner invitation is not optional. If Angela wants to live to see Christmas morning, she must find a way to escape from level P2 of the parking garage!

On the Deepavali eve, before 12am, the fireworks already started. I can see it from my balcony and from my bedroom. Such a nice scene. When the clock just turn 12am, I can see a few places were having the fireworks at the same time. Amazing. I quickly ran into my room and got my camera. I managed to get the fireworks photos at last. :)

I've been tag by HNKP. I don't like to be tagged. Last time, I have been tagged by Laksa, I didn't chap siao her.... Hahahahaha, the list from her was so long.... I'm so lazy to reply on every question.
Since HNKP only tag me with one question, so I decided to reply on this. Laksa, don't get mad ya.....
OK, I need to list down 5 blog links. So easy..... But hor, I have so many, how? Hmmmm, I will do it in a different way. I don't want to tag anyone, I will put it as my top 5 blog. Let me think..... And think..... And think..... And come out the list below.
3rd: Ang Ku Kueh
5th: Hoon, Laksa
I put mine on the 1st, since I view my own page more than others. Besides, I ki siao on blogging these few days. The tag didn't say I cannot put ownself blog, wakakaka.
I put 2 blogs for 5th, I cannot decide which one. Laksa very kut lat when she is in UK. But she seldom update her blog now. Busy? Need to ask her. For Hoon, she updates her blog quite often these few days (still consider ok la...).
Those not in the list, sorry la.... because hor.... I went to your blog and the post is still the same most of the time. Actually I want to have more, but here only says 5 blog links. Never mind, let me write down from 6th to 10th. Hahaha.

Holiday is just around the corner. Many of the shopping mall will have their year end sales starting from next month or end of November due to the Thanksgiving and Christmas. It’s a good time for those shopping lovers to go shop until they drop. Hahaha.
I went to Singapore a lot of times. Just in 2005, I went there for 3 times! Can you imagine that? It seems no related to holiday shopping but why I tell you this? For me, Singapore is a good place for you to shop during their holiday season, especially mid year and year end sales. You can get the stuff you want with great discount. You can never get it in Malaysia. Tell you one thing…… I’m going again this December.
As we know, Thanksgiving is coming soon and I came across this site called black-friday.net this morning. Black Friday is the day just after the Thanksgiving. For this year 2007, it falls on 23rd November. It’s the kick off for the Christmas shopping season. From black-friday.net, the Black Friday ads usually come to you on the Thanksgiving Day. However, black-friday.net has them early for you! You can actually start to plan your shopping list for this holiday season.
One thing good about black-friday.net is, they send you update via email once there are new ads available. What you need to do is just type in your email address in the website to subscribe. It’s so easy. Besides, black-friday.net provides more than 50 stores for you to choose from. Among all, Costco ad has many items for you to choose from, for example: electronics, health & beauty, travel, etc.
Talk about Costco, my sister likes it a lot (I think so…. Hahaha, she used to tell me that). It’s some sort like Tesco in Malaysia. You can find all kind of stuffs there. When I’m in US, she brought me there. I got my external hard disk from there as well. I tried to search many stores, the most they only have 80GB or 120GB. The one I got it from Costco is 160GB! I like it!!! Thanks to my sister for paying on that.
Besides Costco, let me list down some of the stores in the black-friday.net: Amazon, BestBuy, Buy.com, Circuit City, IKEA, Disney Store, Home Depot, Office Depot, Old Navy, Target, Tommy Hilfiger, Toys R Us and Wal-Mart. These stores are just part of the list that I know. You can find other stores in the website as well.
Forgot to mention, black-friday.net is an online shopping website. You no need to queue and rush with others while shopping online. So, be prepared on your shopping list and plan ahead on your holiday shopping!

I think it's good for me to share the Best ITV Awards winning music video over here. The winner uploaded the vieo to youtube for sharing but he didn't enable the embed code, I cannot paste it on my blog. :(
I have no choice but just paste the link over here. I have shared to some of my friends to view it. For those not yet view, please go to the below link and enjoy. It's a great song and it's all done by one person, really great job.
The song is called Cube Dreaming. Lyrics are very true and meaningful to most of the employee. But for those who work in the same company as me, you will feel it more than others!!
Here's the lyrics, enjoy~~~
It was just another day at the usual pace,
I'm sitting in my cube in the same old place.
I see the same old docking station,
the same old job in the same old situation.
Work grows, it's always like that,
the more time I have, it seems, the more work I get.
I sit alone and wonder why
it's been so long since I got to see the sky...
I'm sure, that you're just like me.
We all have our issues with our WLB.
But wait, there is a way,
to get you through the rest of the day...
and it's called:
Cube dreamin', you're dreaming in style,
I'll show you how to do it and it won't take a while,
you just lie back in your ergo chair,
take a deep breath of the office air,
and close your eyes and start cube dreamin' away...
I dream of pretty places where I'd like to be,
I'm lying on the sands on the beach by the sea.
With a warm breeze blowing at me,
it feels so good to be free...
and as I was dreamily watching the tides,
a pretty young lady comes and sits by my side,
and she looks at me with those pretty eyes,
tell me, what was I to do, when she said:
"Come with me now baby I wanna be with you..."
and then I wake up, to find that things are not what they seem.
I see my T41, that stupid machine,
it's got another fatal error, another blue screen.
I guess I'll just restart, then go back and dream....
'cause I'd rather do:
Cube dreamin', I'm dreaming in style,
I'll show you how to do it and it won't take a while.
you just lie back in your ergo chair,
take a deep breath of the office air,
and close your eyes and start cube dreamin' away...
I close my eyes, and start cube dreamin' away...

Few years back, I seldom call to overseas since the charges are quite high if you make a call through your house line. But later, you can find different types of phone cards or so called prepaid calling cards or phone card international in the market that offers you to call internationally with a lower charge.
I’ve used Time Gold before (Anyone heard of this??). I cannot remember the rate, but if I’m not mistaken, it’s almost the same as you call directly from your house line, making not much different. On that time, it’s popular and quite a number of people are using it. However, I'm no longer using it since few years back. I heard that now it's not available anymore. Until recently, I used Skype to call. Skype is easy and convenient for people who online all the time. If you don’t have internet connection, just forget about it.
Yesterday, I bumped into this website called Pingo. Pingo provides the service that let you call by using your house phone with amazing low rates. I went into the Pingo website and it’s actually surprise me. I found Malaysia toll free number there. That means, Malaysia is available for this service!
Besides calling from house line, Pingo is also available for mobile users. You can save up to 90% on international calls when you dial from your mobile phone! That’s not all. When you sign up, you will get $5 USD in your account. For each of the friend you refer, you will also get a $5 USD as well. And guess what, refer three friends, and when they join, Pingo will throw in an extra $5 USD for a total of $20 of free calling time! Furthemore, Pingo also offers a special phonecard blog discount coupon: "ppp3" valid for $3 off Pingo. Great deal huh?!
Sign up today in order to get the cheapest phone card and discount long distance. Enjoy the offer.

Another new song from NameWee. There are many bad words (short form) in the lyrics. So, if you cannot stand it, please don't view the video above. The lyrics is so true.... Of coz not including the bad words laaaaaa....... If you live in Malaysia, you will get what I mean.
Previous post talk about insurance, now let me talk about credit cards.
Credit cards are one of the 5 C (Besides Condo, Cash, Cars... aiya... forgot another 1). Credit card is very useful in the sense that, you can pay for the stuff you bought without using cash. What you need to bring is a card, and no need to keep all the notes and coins. In addition, it's also easy when u shop online.
Nowadays, when you go to shopping mall, someone will come forward and approach you to apply for the credit card. They will offer you a lot of free gift just want you to sign up. For me, I will only choose some of them. Last time, I applied one of the bank because my friend asked me to. I never use that card after applied.
Credit cards also provide many of the services like balance transfers. You can transfer the balance from other account to the credit card and enjoy low interest rate. I've never done that.
One thing you need to remember, you must use your credit card wisely. If not, you will in deep trouble in the end.
Do you have any best credit cards that you think it's really good? Share here.

This year, the annual dinner was held at EQ hotel. For the past 3 years, it was in E&O. The food from E&O was not nice (YES, the first thing I commented is the food, wahahahaha). We always have the buffet dinner for this event. If compare to E&O, the food from EQ is better. I like the lamb and fish. Yummy.... Oh... And the dessert too.... My favaourite.....
My friend came to fetch me around 7pm. The time they sent out is 6pm. Luckily we didn;t go so early. The event just started when we arrived. The theme for the night is ITV. Before the dinner, there is a contest on going, MTV production. This year, our department didn't join. The dress code is evening casual, but as usual, most people wear until so grand..... I just wear a collar t-shirt and pants. Haha.
Throughout the night, there was band perfomance and the ITV sharing. Total of 7 ITVs submitted this year. We are the one that will vote for the BEST ITV. Besides, there was also lucky draw. I got nothing as usual. I only got it the first time I join, which is 4 years back.
Oh, forgot to mention about the door gift. The door gift for this year is photo taking. YES, photo taking. After taking the photo, the commitee will print it out and let you take home, quite a memorable one.
Food photos were inside my colleague's phone. I'm not sure when he will send to me. For the time being, I will only post some of the photos I took with all my colleagues and friends.
Talk about insurance, I think I no need to explain more. For those who have car, for sure, you have car insurance. For houses, you have house insurance. For me, I have life insurance, car insurance, house insurance........Hmmmm, what else...... I think for the time being, just 3.
I bought the life insurance from my old old friend. I knew him since kindergarden. To me, if you want to buy an isurance, better to buy it from someone you trust and can depend on. Just in case, when anything happen (touchwood!), he/she can help to claim and do all the stuff related to insurance for you.
For car insurance, we need to renew it before we can go and renew our road tax. So we totally have no choice but to pay for it. One thing good about car insurance. If you didn't claim for the whole year, then the price will decrease for the following year, and so on.
What do you think about insurance? Maybe you can share some of your thoughts here.

Today is the Sunshine Square Sales again. They have the sales due to Deepavali next week. Although I went to bed around 1.30am last night, I put the alarm clock at 7am just to make sure I can wake up on time and go to meet my mom in Sunshine Square. I manage to wake up at 7 something after a few times of pressing the alarm clock on and off. After shower and everything, get online. :)
Kacang is online in MSN. I chat with her and later I call her using Skype. At the same time, I checked on my PPP and found one opportunity on the coupon stuff. So, I reserve it and start to write again while talking. Usually, I will multi tasking at one time. Haha, save time.
After submmited the post, it's almost 9am. I quickly get ready and drive to Sunshine Square. I'm so lucky today. I manage to get a car park just beside the lift. Thanks to the Kancil. Then I walked to the ground floor to find my mom. My aunt fetched her there.
We bought a lot of stuff, the whole trolly is full. But all the goods are for 3 families, so it's still ok.
If you bought over RM30, you can PWP (Purchase with Purchase) to get some item at cheaper price. I got myself 2 Häagen-Dazs ice cream, Macadamia Nuts and Rum & Raisins. Yummy Yummy.
p/s Those pics purposely took for Ah Hoon. She always like to take those supermarket photo and upload to her blog. So, I followed her. And one more thing, I'm not really like shopping. I will buy the stuff I want and go back straight away. I will not go round and round the whole supermarket.
