Now I could bake more cookies at half the time since I could load more cookies in. Now it takes just 1 hour and half to finish making and baking one batch of cookies.

My engine was spewing white smoke, I was told the engine lubricant was burning in the combustion chamber. "Taukeh" told me one of my cylinder is having problem. Erkk.. we are having a financial crisis right now, perhaps we will have a look at it later.
I have no what this is, but its rusted. "Taukeh" said they will clean it out.

On an even lighter note, they are opening a Carl's Jr in The Mines. Possibly a fast food place that sells the biggest and messiest burgers. (My picture chopping on a charboil chicken burger is at the Carl's Jr at Mid Valley)

Dominos, introduced their newest card. Its basically the same "buy one get one free" card for takeaway purchases. Its more expensive now, but since you can use it as much as you want, it is good value, since they hiked up the price on their pizza. I love Dominos because they are generous with their sauce and their pepperoni taste better than Pizza Hut.

The new E75, I don't red, but for this phone I would like it in red. So nice, with the sliding QWERTY pad to make typing much faster, but its gonna cost me an arm and a leg.
E63 is nice too, although the QWERTY pad does not slide, the display is much bigger though. It cost half of the E75, so it will cost me an arm only.

Well, she went to Tesco, driving my car the Viva while I had to drive the Naza Ria. This is because my sister is at home for her semester break, so she has to drive my sister to and from school. It would be inconvenient to drive the huge silver whale (Ria) to the school with all that congestion that consist of cars, busses, parents, children and motorcyclist on the road.
I think she loves driving the small, fuel efficient, easy to park, easy to drive car for those short errands. 80% of the time a small car can do most of the things that we need from a car. I like driving the Naza Ria, the huge size, the great stereo and the commanding view of the road is nice. Its easy to deal with road bullies because you don’t have to go fast, you can just block their way by driving the speed limit and smile while doing it.
Speaking of cars, our other car is in the workshop. The mechanic is running around looking for spare parts, used spare parts that is. Even the used spare parts will cost us almost RM 2k. Its expensive because Mercedes don’t need to be repaired that much. Our car is already 18 years old, but still drives better than most cars that is half its age. Well we will see how long before my dad gives up and sells the car. Although I secretly don’t want to….

SMART TAG is a device where we insert the Touch n Go card in, so that we can use in the SMART TAG lanes. Its those automatic toll paying device, where you don’t have to stop to pay for tolls, but merely slow down till a “beep” is heard to know that you have paid for your toll. Other countries have similar devices that is used for tolls in there highway’s or toll for driving in the city. I live outside of Kuala Lumpur (KL), so most roads that leads into KL is toll based, although there are some toll free roads, the congestion and time it takes, is not worth it. Even my trip to the University cost RM 1 at the toll, I could go into Kajang town and go through 3 traffic lights along with the traffic congestion.
We have 5 SMART TAG devices in our house, because we have 5 cars. This is to prevent from the devices from being transfer from one car to the other car. It’s very stressful to drive a car and then realize when you arrived at the toll booth, the SMART TAG is not in the car, so you had to queue up with the rest of the drivers who are paying cash (the only reason that you need to pay cash now days is because you want to collect the receipt).
It’s so frustrating that even though there is a SMART TAG for each car, sometimes one the car’s will be missing a SMART TAG or a Touch n Go card. Yes, it was missing. Its like WHAT THE F@#K is wrong with you people. WHY THE F#@$ING hell did you have to take it out from my F&#@ING car, when I F&#$ing need it. I don’t borrow your F%$#ing stuff, so don’t borrow my F#@$ing stuff you F##$ing S%$T head.
Left and right people I know are getting married. I got the shock of my life when one of my friend was getting engaged after 7 months of dating. I was like, what!, no way!, really?, wow!, hey congrats to them. I also know a friend who has been married for 12 years and he is only 34 years old. Which means he was married at the age of 22. I was pursuing my bachelor degree when I was 22. Then, there was this one couple that I know that got married after they finished their degree. Now the husband is doing his PhD in Japan while the wife stayed in Malaysia to her PhD. They both are converting their Master degree into a PhD degree.
The funny thing about me getting the surprise of my life when hearing and knowing these news, is not that immediately jump on the bandwagon and get hitched, nor do I feel inferior that they found their special someone. I mean we are all created on earth to find our soul mate right. I feel well a bit weird, since I do thing some are quite young to be hitched or that some got married too soon, but then that is just me. I have no desire to built a nest anytime soon. It’s not in my nearest plan for the future anyway.
I do sometime see someone, either from online, from my friends acquaintance, or that occasional psychopath that you meet out of coincidence. However none of them made me feel like I want to settle down. The thing I think about the most is the next car I would like to own. A pickup, a SUV, a large sedan or a sport car. Who am I to judge on their choices, if they are happy on the path that they choose, I am too (although a bad day can literally feel like your life is hopeless) with my own choice.
I wish them all the best in their marriage and relationship. It’s probably not my thing now, but who knows right, once I meet the right person I might settle down….but only after a Mazda Rx8 on my car porch :D

CIMB does offer mobile banking, but sadly both of my phone are not compatible with the system. They offer a list of compatible phones with Nokia topping the list of most phone compatible with CIMB. I could get a second hand phone, but somehow my experience of using a second hand phone is not good, I mean come on, it's a phone, it could be dropped, thrown, water damaged and so on. So it's based on luck when buying second hand phones. I am not sure should I get it or not, its nice to get a new phone and its nice to be able to just reload anytime and anywhere where the connection is strong.

There is nothing worst like body odor or known as B.O to some. It ruins job interviews, failed relationships, causes panic and increases anger level. Exaggerating? I think most of us has experienced how B.O can really make your day turn sour. What does one do? Do we have to become mouth breather, practice holding our breath as long as possible, or spray some perfume and that god forsaken pits. Don't confuse this with natural body smell. Some people do smell naturally good, blame the pheromones for this unique scent that is present in everyone.
These two problem related with each other and can cause discomfort to the person and those around them. Sure there is deodorant and anti perspirant in the market, but sometimes certain brands or certain application of deodorant do not work well on others.
My brother has terrible anti perpirant problem. He gets so sweaty and wet, it turned into the most horrific and foul smelly B.O. He tries to wear deodorant from all brands and type but none of it worked well enough for him. Somehow along the way, we noticed he stopped smelling foul and is dry enough for us to touch. He told us his secret. He uses a Speedstick Anti Perspirant and Deodorant and a Nivea Dry Impact for Men. He claims this was the combination to stop him from sweating. A stick type deodorant that is then covered by a spray type. I did not really believe his combination until I tried it myself. However, I used a Rexona Roll On deodorant and Nivea Dry Impact combination. The result, my underarms were dry. They usually get wet easily even by the slightest sweating, but not when I used the combination. It was a pleasant surprise for my self. Maybe some of you may think that the Nivea spray deodorant is the reason for the dryness, but I used the spray before and did not like how the vapours enter my nose. So I do believe both combination provided an excellent protection and coverage to me.
A friend of mine has this terrible B.O problem, but so far we did not pin point it to excessive sweating. Since his underarms were relatively dry. So it has to be B.O. A blogger friend of mine swears that using Nivea Whitening for women has cured his problem. It sounded strange, but it worked for him. So I decided to try and recommended it to my friend with the B.O problem. He hesitated at first but after I told him he really did stink and before this I did not had the guts to talk about it to him but after he said his girlfriend sometime complain that he does, I straight away spilled the beans to him and he gave in. The results? It really worked, Nivea Whitening roll on work to combat B.O. Now I don't have to open the windows when he rides in my car.
Note, this is not a advertisement for the products mention above (I love to, but I don't think the company likes me mix matching their products and other company's products together)
