Moving back to old house

Due to a burglary, my house has been cleared - virtually nothing left! I felt that the whole world had gone black, hope drained from me. Thus I decided to leave the house, either rent it out or sell it off. The house is mainly left unoccupied except the time when my aunt and family come back Ipoh for holiday.

My relationship with my aunt and family are very close, as if they were my own family. So I had always troubled myself, thinking of where they will stay when they are back.

Hubby and I had thought of buying a new house, but the property price has been rising tremendously throughout the years. Not that we couldn't afford, but if we really bought a new property, we would have to travel less, and use less, everything becomes tighten, we are not allow to spend freely. My aunt also doesn't agree to the idea of buying a new house.

Thus, all of us come to a conclusion to move back to the old house. We will have to build a concrete wall without door at the back yard where the fencing had been stolen; add more grills around the house; set up an alarm system; have an electrician to fix all the wiring that have been cut off by the devil thieves; and lastly replace the air-conditioner/ Astro decoder/ washing machine/ water heater/ refrigerator/ Furniture.

I will be busy going to and fro my house! Everything will be find after the alarm installation, I supposed!!!

Day after Malaysia Day

It is a Friday! And from the time I awake, I thought it is Monday today! LOL! Tomorrow will be Saturday and soon will be Sunday - another holiday!

Hubby stayed at home all day yesterday, cooking, washing, cleaning, watching TV, as if it was a Sunday! We do not need any stereo systems at home but still we enjoy ourselves.

KL stay

I'm backed from a 3 days 2 nights Kuala Lumpur trip. My aunt and family came down from Kuantan; hubby and I went KL from Ipoh.

We stayed in One World Hotel which is nested within One Utama Shopping Centre. I've booked our room through an online travel agent with a great deal, instead of RM1,200+ for superior room only from the hotel's website, I have it at RM1,088 for deluxe room and breakfast (2 rooms 2 nights).

Upon arrived in KL around 9am, we checked in but the hotel system had been down. So we went back around 12pm, queuing up to check in again. We were lucky to have our room upgraded to executive deluxe room since deluxe rooms were not ready yet. :)

It isn't the first time we stay in this hotel, but we always feel happy to check in to One World Hotel. However, some unhappiness happened after the check in.

We were rushing time going to meet my uncle's friend. The bellboy whom helped us arranging our luggage in the trolley was busy attending to another customer, so we helped ourselves pushing the trolley to our room. Half way unloading the luggage, the bellboy came. But he wasn't helping, he just stood and see us unload our things. Once finished, the bellboy showed us "black face", teared off our room tag on the trolley with force and pushed the trolley out of the room. (May be he thought that we were suppose to pay him tips but we didn't. Hey, he never even offered help unloading the luggage, why are we paying him?)

On the other hand, while waiting for check in, hubby parked our car beside the lobby waiting for us. Once he got down from the car, the jockey told him they'll charged us RM5 for parking there for 15 minutes. Because our car not a Merz? BMW? Porche? or Ferrari???

Other than that, we enjoyed our stay there, everything were great!

And cam-whoring!
I don't need a senior match service! LOL!

Half an hour of Piranha

Hubby told me he wanted to watch the Piranha days before. I have made an online booking with TGV. RM10 per seat and an additional online booking fee made up to a total of RM21.00 for the movie on Tuesday. It is a nice seating place at the last row since I have made the booking early.

We arrived at Jusco on time for the movie. While seated, people walking pass our back (we were on the last row). I heard some of them discussing why the theater was warm. I didn't bother much until half an hour after the movie started. I felt stuffy and even sweating. I also smelt the bad smell of shoes!

I could not tolerate with the warm, stuffy and smelly environment. I walk out to ask. And only when I asked that I realized that the staffs are already aware of that! They told me the cinema's air-cond compressor had broken down few weeks ago!

Gosh, they are selling tickets with normal price without informing customer about the fact that there is NO air-cond throughout the whole cinema!!! Imagine how you feel when your car and home air-cond compressor broken down, when only hot air coming out from the air-cond!

Being told that the air-cond compressor is malfunctioning, I rolled my eyes big and look at them. Following that, they told me I can have my tickets refund. Well, at least they refund. I went back into the theater, discuss with hubby. At last, we decided to get the refund. Hey, we do not need to pay to suffer!!!

We asked for refund at the ticket counter, the staff needed to ask for permission to do so from their supervisor and came back refunded me RM20. I request to see the supervisor since it was not fully refund - RM21. It is just RM1 difference but I bothered by the fact that the cinema still selling tickets even though the air-cond was not functioning!!! When the supervisor came, he pay me back the difference immediately. Clever him, or else I will be writing my complain letter to the TGV headquarter now!

I think they need to change their seats to a more fashionable western furniture style since they are now starting to get smelly!

I have a netbook!

I just took my netbook back after having lunch with my friends! *Happy* But we waited at the computer shop for half an hour before I can take hold of the netbook. :(

At the moment, I can't on the netbook to browse through, it needs to charge for 8 hours before using. I can't charge it now in the shop, have to wait till we got home! I could only admire the netbook externally! LOL!

Sweet n sour prawn in bread

We used to hear curry chicken bread, now I want to introduce the sweet n sour prawn in bread. We bought it from the restaurant near our house for supper. Yup, just hubby and me, finished the whole bread and prawns.

The sweet n sour prawn in bread costs RM42 with 10 big prawns (yes, we count!). Yummy!!!

Okay, let the picture do the talk!

Help for the elderly and disabled

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of NMEDA. All opinions are 100% mine.

NMEDA is a non-profit trade association of mobility dealers, manufacturers and rehabilitation professionals that advocates providing safe, reliable vehicles and modifications to enhance accessibility for all people. NMEDA does not sell anything. They educate consumers on buying products from a NMEDA qualified dealer.

NMEDA has Dealers AND Quality Assurance Program (QAP) dealers. The QAP is a recognized accreditation program for the mobility equipment industry. The program was developed to promote quality, safety, and reliability within the industry. It is based on the principle that in order to satisfy customers consistently, companies must have a systematic and documented approach to quality.

Also, NMEDA is the only association that promotes safe driving and equipment for disabled people. The elderly and disabled could regain their freedom and get back onto the road of independence easily with the help of NMEDA dealers, providing appropriate training or product refinements.

It is a hard job to be a caregiver. I haven't been one, but I could see with my eyes, how much strength and patient needed? How uneasy for the one being care of, fearing that they'll burdened their family? I can feel it!

It's easy, just go to and on the homepage, hit the dealers locator and type in your ZIP code and see if there is a qualified dealer near you. Get some advice from them!

Matta Fair, Ipoh

Matta Fair in Ipoh starts today. Weeks before this, I saw the advertisement on the Genting website regarding the room redemption offer. It supposed to open by 10am.

Thus, I go there on 9.40am, thinking that I shall be early and could have been first few in the queue for room redemption. But I was wrong! Totally wrong!!! It's already in a long queue when I reached there.

I queued for an hour for the room redemption. It worth the wait since I only need to use 3GP to redeem 2 nights stay in First World's deluxe room during low season! I separate the stay , one in October and one in November, which means I'm going to Genting Highland once in each month for the coming two months!

Steamboat birthday bash

1st Sept is my best friend's - Terrence birthday! Yes, he is a guy. my best friend is a guy! Sometime, guys are better than girls when it comes to the time you need help or advice. What do you think?

We have a steamboat birthday bash held. We have not been to this restaurant, it is recommended by a friend. Hubby and I went on time while others were yet to arrived! Despite wasting time, I took out my camera, starting to snap everywhere. LOL!

It is actually a steamboat and bbq restaurant where we could bbq hot dogs, hams, satay, etc. If you need to eat something while waiting for the steamboat and bbq, there are fried rice, nuggets, watermelon and red bean soup. The variety of food for steamboat were plenty too!

I would highly recommend this restaurant for buffet steamboat. We only paid RM19.90 per person since it is on weekdays and the food served are fresh, especially the prawns. We had 4 big plates of prawns - the boss must have taken down our face, black-listed us! We almost finished al the prawns in the shop with the efficiency of the birthday boy peeling off all the shell of the prawns. LOL!

All of us were so full that we hardly left any place for birthday cake! I wonder I would need to use the dental business cards that my friend gave me on the day before!

Merdeka @ Genting Highland

Hubby and I, FIL and MIL went up to the hill on Merdeka day! Hubby and I stayed in Genting Highland for half day only. Why? Too boring! We lost RM50 straightly within 5 games! No luck! Thus, hubby and I went down to KL, go for Low Yat Plaza for some computer accessories. We went up to Genting again around 7pm to fetch my in-laws to Gohtong Jaya for dinner before heading home.

Before going down to KL, we had our lunch in a almost hidden restaurant which is located in Genting Casino. My in-laws brought us there. This restaurant named New Orleans. We were fortunate to have reached there in time to avoid the long queue, half an hourly later, the queue gets quite long already! LOL!

In the New Orleans, one only need to order a main course to be able to enjoy buffet salad, soup and drinks!
