Archive for June, 2008

It was a very hectic schedule for me that Sunday on the 22nd June 2008. First I had an amateur photoshoot with a bunch of friends in Bagan Lalang. Then I had to rush back home in time for my colleague’s wedding dinner in Hotel Maya, Kuala Lumpur. Bernard was my driver that night, that […]

This is my first experience here as a Toyota owner, servicing my Altis. I was prepared for a huge bill. For one thing, I do not have a complete service record for this car, so all other details of the record remain vague. I have called 2 weeks earlier to book an appointment and the […]

Unless you have been living in a remote jungle forest of Borneo without any internet connection or TV whatsoever, you would have known by now how much petrol price has risen overnight. I quickly went to refuel both my cars. I consider myself lucky. I got refueled in less than an hour for each cars. […]

The recent announcement of the new fuel subsidy structure is really taking everybody by storm. The most noticeable move is by prohibiting all vehicles from Thailand from fueling here. That took effect yesterday. The Singaporeans are still refueling here pending further announcement. The issue now here is: should Malaysians with Singaporean registered cars be allowed […]

I hate to admit it, but I have a very naughty little girl. And I’m proud of it! 😀 I’m talking about Yan Yan, the elder mischievous monkey. She started terrorizing the house the moment she is mobile. One of the earliest things she destroyed was the calendar that was hung very low.
