Can I claim.......................Can I??

I was browsing at some websites and found this article relating to PKR.... It's about the PKR Election Manifesto....So I took a quick look and read the manifesto and something caught my attention.

In the manifesto, it is stated that Rakyat Selangor is entitled to receive RM75 for every sons and daughters they sent to nursery. In addtion, rakyat Selangor is entitled to receive RM50 for sending their kids to Pre-school kindergartens.

Hence, I was just thinking, can I claim this entitlement? If I can, who do I get in contact with or, has anyone received any of these promises as yet?

Plus, prior to 2008, it was called Barisan Alternative and now Pakatan Rakyat. A wee bit odd isn't it when the promises were made by BA instead of PR. Anyway, hope they can fulfill the promises and I hope I can get my money soon.


Yesterday, as I was waiting for my car to be serviced, I bump into an old friend.

It was nice to meet him again after all these years. He used to be a member of a local 'underground' band ages ago but has now became a 'successful' marketeer attached to PNB.

So there we were talking about the glory days back when we were young. Anyways, when we were talking, one of the topics that we spoke about was investment. He asks me whether I've invested before and obviously my answer was 'yes!!'.

He was saying something it's mega important to invest and spread the risk if you can and try not to focus on one particular area. He spoke at length about investing in unit trust as there one too many funds and we have to be on our toes to pick the best one that suits us.

He then laugh as we were talking about investment as he said, he never thought that one day, we will sit down and talk about investment. Those days, the only thing we speak about was music and hang out at Uptown. How time flies and he said we're definitely getting older!! Heheh

I was pleased to see him after all these years and glad he is 'happy' to be where he is now. As for me, there are things that need to be done. Obviously, I can't buy another property now so for the time being I'm focusing on maximizing Wifey's ASB. She's got a long way to go before we reach the RM200k mark but we'll get there.

To be honest, I've not been able to save as much as I wanted to as there will always be something that need to purchased or paid whenever I wanna save some savings. Hahahaha. Anyways, hope to clear out those 'debts' before the end of the year and hopefully, I can invest more in ASB and properties next year.

Some people are just born.......??

This guy (apparently a foreigner ) is apparently special or just plain stupid. Welcome to Boleh Land....


I went to A&W PJ last saturday with a couple of friends for sahur. :P

To be honest, I'm not a fan of A&W but I have to say, I like the root beer float and the coney dogs. Hehehe

I think there's something magical about that particular A&W outlet. If I can remember correctly, my dad used to bring me there when I was a little boy. Fast forward 2 decades later, I think, the set up of the outlet is pretty much the same as it was years ago...

It got me thinking, how does A&W compete with the other fast foods chain eh? I would assume, it'll be very difficult for them to compete especially with McD or even KFC. The prices are on the high-side. The staff are not as joy-ful as McD's or KFC's.

The services are slow in my opinion. They only open up 2 counters at that time, which I have to wait approximately 10 minutes before my orders were taken. I would think, A&W has a long, long way to go to reach the level that they are supposed to be.'s up to their management to decide though...

Nyways..I enjoyed eating away those lovely coney dogs, curly fries and drinking 'em root beer floats. It certainly brings back the memories when I was 17-19 years old again....Hahaha

I took the time to 'wiki' A&W a wee bit and I was shocked to know that there's no A&W outlet in Singapore anymore. The A&W outlet in PJ was actually opened in 1965. Hence, that makes the outlet, 46 years old....Hahahaha...


After months of thinking whether or not to buy an Ipad, I finally decided to purchase one for wifey at Digital Mall, PJ yesterday. A 16GB one that costs RM1500.

Apparently the other day wifey told me that some of her friends that owns ipads were able to download their medical journals for easy reference. Hence, instead of carrying those super-sized and heavy medical books, she may now read it in Ipad. Where to download?...I have no idea as I'm not familiar with Ipad thingy!!

Anyways, I know that there are alot of education apps for kids in Ipad. So, kecik may be able to learn a thing or two from those apps (If we decide to let her play)...hahaha

So far, I've downloaded few apps that I think I can use especially in budgeting, finances, health as well as some books....Obviously, I picked the free ones at the moment....Not to forget some education games for Kecik....

I'll write more when I'm familiar enough with my latest gadget!! Well to be honest, I think I'm gonna struggle initially, but, need to keep abreast with the latest technology eh?

Have a good week ahead...

Yamaha XJ6

I've been bike-less for about 2 years now.

At times, I miss being on a bike......I seriously do...

However, due to time constraint, I had to sell it off...

Anyways, as I was talking to a friend the other day, he was talking about this particular bike. Yamaha XJ6. To be honest, I don't have a clue what it looks like so I went back home and 'googled' it.

My first impression, I think the bike is nice and sexy. I've never ridden on a naked bike before (perhaps one day I will though). The price if I'm not wrong is about RM40k. Good price for a mid range bike I think....

Maybe, I'll take a test ride this Saturday at Sungai Buloh. Perhaps, after that, I'll share it here....
