Sk-II miracle water

Everybody knows Sk-II expensive, but still it's famous!

Recently, I come across a website regarding Sk-II Christmas package, seems worthy to buy.

So I went to a Sk-II counter, ask about it. After some detailed explanation from the promoter, I bought a 75ml facial treatment essence (miracle water). After all, they are famous for this miracle water only ma. RM187 for a 75ml miracle water is really expensive for me, but I just want to give it a try, may be I'll get a better skin with it?

My small small office is on the way

Yeah! Finally I could sit inside a office (with air-con)! lol

I used to sit inside hubby's shop to stay guard of incoming customers. But the weather's so unpredictable, sometimes cool, sometimes hot and since it's in open air, heavy dust will cover my table every day! It's great to have myself sit in a office!

Air-con will be install today - an old air-con from our house, the ceiling fan will be relocate, and the partition board will be fix on Thursday.

We will also change our display racks, having a minor change in the shop!

In the coming time, we will do some changes bit by bit, determining to renew and refresh the shop. Nowadays, changes must be made to survive. We ourselves as a customer, would rather pay more to sit in a clean and comfortable cafe, than sitting in a old and "not-so-clean" kopitiam, right?

My Digital SLR

Nikon D3000 - my new camera!

Hubby bought me a DSLR as a gift... erm for my pregnant Christmas gift - an early gift! I have been dreaming for it long long time ago. And now my wish comes true!

When hubby and I went to Australia, we saw many tourists holding a DSLR, even girls are holding one! We are wondering what's so great about this "big thing"?

So we try to find out when we are back in Malaysia. What's the different between our small digital compact camera with the Digital SLR?

When we were in Gold Coast, I tried to snap a picture at the night market and got scolded, all because my camera's flash light which caught the stall's owner attention! When it comes to a DSLR, it need not a flash light on at night, just increase the ISO will do, so not easy to be discover when we were to snap photos at night!

Look at the picture below, with a DSLR, we can show the movement nicely where our small camera cannot.

Picture with movement

Aperture has a big impact upon depth of field. Large aperture will decrease depth of field while small aperture will give you larger depth of field. Adjustment of the aperture will give us the below effect.

Pictures with different aperture

There are many functions hidden in this Digital SLR camera. I'm still on my way discovering!

Why human beings get sick, grow old and die?

Got a death news of a 70-year-old man, whom pass away while sleeping on yesterday morning. The news came too sudden, as if struck by lightning. Hubby and I can't even finished our breakfast on that morning.

I wonder why human beings needs to get through the path of getting sick, grow old and die? I told hubby why not we stop producing? We give birth to a little child, and the child grow up, get sick, grow old and die eventually. So why we give birth? If we don't give birth, then the child won't have to suffer from sickness and death!

It is understood that Mother Nature keeps the population balanced that way. The Earth can only support so many people. There is some kind of natural need for new people instead of the same ones living forever.

According to Bible, it is because of sin. When Adam and Eve sinned against God in the Garden of Eden, their sin brought sickness and death into the world. If sin had not entered into the world, mankind would be living for a long time.

In the book of Romans it says "The wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is Eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. Human being is a living spirit, got a soul and live in a mortal body. Our body will die, but our spirit will never die.

Death is inevitable. So we have to live everyday as if it's our last day, enjoy ourselves and live our life to the fullest.

Ipoh road resurface???

The road in front of our shop was being resurfaced yesterday. Fyi, the road in front of our shop is still in good condition without bumps or holes! Anyway, it's something to be happy, right?

However, do you normally see "road resurface" being done in the daylight? Shouldn't it be done at night??? Try imagine the traffic and the SMELL of the asphalt!!!

The SMELL is really unbearable, I'm having stuffy nose since then! Now cough joins in too! Making me eating everything tasteless! *sigh*

I noticed that Ipoh is now having a "road resurface" revolution. But mainly to "main road" not "small lane". Road resurface supposedly a good deed to us, but please do this in the night time. We need not see the progress of road resurfacing to acknowledge the work done!!!

Chocolate walnut cookies

Yup, chocolate walnut cookies. We made chocolate walnut cookies on the past Sunday.

I saw Claire's post about chocolate walnut cookies, made me mouth-watering. So I go buy this buy that to made my own chocolate walnut cookies! It's easily made, but my mini oven made the baking time long - I have to separate many times for them to bake into shape. Every tray took 20 minutes. I think we have made around 8 trays. 20 minutes times 8 equals to 160 minutes!!!

Anyway the final outcomes are delicious! I think I would bake some more before CNY (save some money buying cookies from others!). LOL.

Marcus also want to take photo with his toy camera!

Highway traffic jam

Hubby and I went Butterworth meeting up with a friend on the past Sunday. From Ipoh to Butterworth, it supposed to take around 2 hours. But we took extra half an hour on the way, because of a lorry! The lorry happened to turn all the small rocks out accidentally (I suppose!). The rocks covered the whole road until the police had to stop all the cars to clean up the road. Thus, we are stuck inside our car for half an hour in the middle of a highway!

Came to a halt on the highway to Butterworth.

See the long queue?

A police taking care of the traffic while the tractor removing the rocks.

This is the lorry that cause the mess!

The art of waiting

Do you get frustrated when you have to wait? Do you feel the pressure build the longer the wait? Do you complain loudly whenever you are delayed? Have you ever thought about the physical effects this irritation is producing? Would you like a way to make waiting easier and productive?

The greatest benefits of keeping yourself occupied while waiting are that you remain calm which keeps your blood pressure down, your mood pleasant and stimulates your mind.
The above is something I got when I key-in "the art of waiting" to Google Search. I'm in the mist of waiting. I'm rather disturbed and annoyed by the waiting. That's why I Google for the phase "the art of waiting".

Waiting is a large part of our way of life so we may as well make it constructive and thus productive. But how???

Nine Emperor Gods Festival

The Nine Emperor Gods Festival (九皇爺) is a nine-day celebration observed primarily in Southeast Asian countries like Singapore, Malaysia, and Thailand.

In Ipoh, Tow Boh Keong is one of the temple celebrating this festival and it is located opposite of our shop. When it comes to this time of the year, the street in front of our shop will be jammed with cars and peoples.

Hubby always tell me that when he was young and still staying upstairs, he used to look at the crowd every night and he loves the noise. Now the whole family had moved into a terrace house, we still visit the temple almost every night enjoying the crowd!

As a result of eat and sit, I'm getting heavier day by day. So hubby bought me a bicycle to exercise, both for me and for him. We are eager to bring home the new bike, thus we request the sale person to fix all the important parts and left only those common-sense part for us (for the sick of the storage of our "big" car).

The machine is designed to have a calculator of calories burned, exercised time, km and heart beat rating. Unfortunately, the sensor which is placed near to the pedal malfunction. The technician had been coming to replace us a new bike which is also having the same problem.

Finally the problem solved yesterday, I ride on the bike happily and not long after I cycle, comes "krat, krat, krat" and "bang"! The pedal's cover dropped off! *sigh*

My new home exercising bike with the pedal dropped off!

What is web directory?

A web directory or link directory is a directory on the World Wide Web. It specializes in linking to other web sites and categorizing those links.

A web directory is not a search engine and does not display lists of web pages based on keywords; instead, it lists web sites by category and subcategory. The categorization is usually based on the whole web site rather than one page or a set of keywords, and sites are often limited to inclusion in only a few categories. Web directories often allow site owners to directly submit their site for inclusion, and have editors review submissions for fitness.

Most of the directories are very general in scope and list websites across a wide range of categories, regions and languages. But there are also some niche directories which focus on restricted regions, single languages, or specialist sectors. One type of niche directory with a large number of sites in existence, is the shopping directory for example. Shopping directories specialize in the listing of retail e-commerce sites.

Examples of well known, general, web directories are Yahoo! Directory and the Open Directory Project (ODP). ODP is significant due to its extensive categorization and large number of listings and its free availability for use by other directories and search engines.

Gambang Water Park

We went to Gambang Water Park on Sunday morning too. It was located at Gambang, Pahang, about half an hour from Kuantan.

It was very crowded when we arrived. Hubby and my cousin went for a long queue to buy tickets while my uncle, auntie and I went walking around. The surrounding is very nice and windy.

When we were inside the water park, we decided not to play water (we didn't even bring any clothes or towels!). Sited himself at the food court, my uncle waiting for us queuing to buy food. However, we only realized that we need to buy voucher from another counter to buy food in the food court!!! As such, we just forget about it, walking away from the food court without food! LOL

We stayed there for an hour before going home.

Breakfast at Mentakad

Hubby and I made our way to Kuantan again during the Raya holidays. Mentakad is about an hour away from Kuantan though, my uncle loves to come all the way just for breakfast.

This stall is fulled with people early in the morning, I supposed this stall is quite locally. We waited for quite some time before food served.

Hubby and my cousin waiting for table clean-up!

My little mouse went into factory?

My mouse for the notebook hair-wired in the mist of nothing!

I didn't go to get a new one, it is a laser mouse comes with 2 years warranty. I have use it for a year though. I sent it back to the computer shop for warranty instate. And according to them, it takes around a month before I can get it back in good condition.

I hope it comes back to me earlier, without the mouse, I found it hard to control my notebook!

So I'll be blogging less until my mouse is backed. By the way, I'm not feeling good these days also.
