At this hour, hubby has the privilege to become the Co-MC (more of a translator) in the very first Melaka’s Bersih 3.0 Concert. He gets to shake hands with Datuk A.Samad Said, Ambiga, Wong Tack and Hishammudin Rais. Cool! I want! Unfortunately, I’m stuck at home with the kids wondering how the MCing went well. Let’s wait for update from hubby when he gets home soon.
The weather has been super duper hot here in Malacca. It has been this hot since before the Chinese New Year. The grasses are dying and the leaves are withering. Yesterday, there was not a single cloud in the sky around mid day; clear blue sky. It did rain last night but don’t think it is sufficient for the plants.
We have been napping and sleeping with the air-cond on for about 2 hours almost everyday! I am really scared to see my electricity bill this month. I told hubby that since he can’t bring us to Genting or Cameron Highlands for holiday, we spend the holiday budget paying for the air-cond usage bill!
Is there any online life insurance for death by heat or dehydration?
I am making sure my children and myself too to drink lots and lots of water. Make sure you do the same too ya. If not, sure fall sick one.
My sister bought a new house and recently my dad helped to get the electricity and water meter fixed. My dad went to the Syarikat Air Melaka Berhad (SAMB) formerly known as Perbadanan Air Melaka (PAM) office to pay for the connection fee of RM110 which include the water meter and installation.
A few days after that my dad got a call from the SAMB contractor asking my dad to come to the house. There is no reason for my dad to be there because the water meter is usually fixed outside the house gate. This is what one of the contractors told my dad over the phone, “Faham, faham saja lar Encik.” (this means that they want $$$) At that time, my dad just came back from the house and no way he is going back there. He just told them told to fix the water meter.
In the evening, before going to the house, my dad met with a pensioner from PAM. He told my dad that they will only do it if my dad pays give them some money! True enough; when my dad arrived there, there water meter is not fixed. My dad was mad and he wanted to make a complaint but did not. Lazy to drive all the way to town.
The next day, the contractor called my dad again and asked for RM10. My dad gave! They fixed the water meter.
Haiya!!! Since we are not in a rush to get water into the house, what for pay??? Not that my sister is living there yet. If I were him, I already make the complaint!!!
Latest Update on 15.09.09 – Apartments Rented till further notice.
I just check the MMU semester calendar; 2nd semester will only starts in November. That is 4 more months to go; if there is 2nd intake during the 2nd semester. If no have to “suffer” till June next year!
So we decided to open our apartments up as Holiday Apartment; Cheap Holiday Apartment! The rental is only RM150 a night. Negotiable if you plan to stay longer. We have 2 of them. Both situated in Bukit Beruang, Melaka near MMU (Multimedia University).
Since the school holiday is coming, come lar. Can visit me and experience my kampung lifestyle. Got big place to run, trees to climb, fishes to catch (we have 3 big ponds), free coconut water etc. Oh ya, free WiFi too!
So you’re repentant now? asked the interviewer.
The question is very simple…Have you repented from looking for “kok kok”?
His answer was…
I have admitted my guilt. I’ve resigned — that is like a form of punishment.
I’m willing to start all over again, which means I leave it to the delegates to decide my political destiny, whether my private life is more important than my public performance.
I’ve publicly admitted my weaknesses. At no time did I try to deny it. At no time did I say it “looks like me and sounds like me but it’s not me”.
This is what I understood from his answer:
He admitted he is quilty.
He is willing to start over.
He admitted his weakness.
He did not deny it.
I am looking for the word “Yes, I have repented”, “I repent.” “I’ll never do it again”, anything related to repentant but I can’t. Anyone can?
Our Datuk Seri Dr. Chua Soi Lek is making his come back as President and his is going to start all over again!!! Stay tune.
Have you read the latest news?
You see, even our own government has no confident in using Proton.
Excerpt from the news:
The state owns 16 of these Proton Perdanas and the servicing cost had hit a whopping RM1.07mil over the last four years.
“I also urge them (the ACA) to probe the high service charges by Spanco,” he said.
Haiya, Spanco know government got lots of money to spend so charge higher lor….see see…now can even afford to buy a Merc that cost RM3.43mil.
Why not spend the money to buy new Perdanas instead of buying only one Merc?
Thank God I didn’t buy Proton Persona. I shall stick to my Toyota Corolla KE30. Imported car you know.
Yay! I am eligible.

I heard that they will rebate when we renew our road tax and insurance. In that case, they have to pay me instead because my road tax and insurance is about RM400 only. Will they actually pay??? If they are, gonna spend that money buying office furniture for hubby’s internet cafe.
Unfortunately, I will be affected by this…the 18% increased in the electricity rate.
Electricity tariff restructure
> Households using 200kWh and below every month will not be affected. This covers 59% of households in Peninsular Malaysia with a monthly bill under RM43.60.
My electricity bill is more than RM200 these days. It used to be around RM60-80 per month. The most it goes up to RM90 when some of the in laws come back for the weekend.
Oh well, I can’t say much about it. Just work harder to pay up bills.

Check it out here.
To those who are lazy to click the link, here’s what on that page:
The new price of petrol is RM2.70 per litre beginning midnight tonight, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi announced just a moment ago. The 78 sen hike or 40 per cent increase is still below the antiticpated RM4 per litre price projected earlier and among the cheapest in Asia.
I just got my cars full tank. That’s all we can do. I wonder if I borrow my future BIL’s pick up truck they will let me buy in drums arh??? The company I’m still working in got lotsa drums.
So, we have to cut down on a lot of things now. Everything will increase further. I wonder whether my nen-nen can resume production! Milk is sooooo expensive now.
St. Barts villa rentals have to wait for a little longer then. Did I say that I’m planning to go there? Nah…forget about it.
