Do you like this Christmas theme? Even if you don’t, I do. Just found it online, and unzipped to my computer, before FTP to my server and simply activate the theme. I have also customised the look by adding widgets and other stuffs. Christmas is just around the corner, less than a month away and I shall be having a buffet Christmas dinner at Quayside with mum, sister and partner at RM 40 per person on 17th December 2016. I have also activated the let it snow plugin to reflect on winter time in the upper hemisphere of the earth, namely Europe, UK, etc. It must be chilly cold up there with strong winds.
I was reading the old copies of the Herald magazines produced by Catholic churches and it was stated that the Olympic gold medalist Usain Bolt is a Catholic. It is enlightening to note that he is a Christian and in this faith, it encourages believers to give their best with passion in whatever endeavors they are in – a job, sports, family, etc. Usain is also being sponsored by Celcom, our local telco here in Malaysia. Reading Christian material is certainly uplifting and inspiring. It helps to beat mental stress at work, in relationships with in-laws, etc. Forgiveness is key to a healthy life.
My Firefly flight was delayed by 40 minutes last night, departing at 8:50pm instead of 8:10pm. It was raining heavily and the traffic was terrible. Took us 45 minutes to arrive at the airport, but luckily we set off 2 hours earlier. I have missed 3 flights before, so now I cannot take any chances and be prepared for any unforeseen like the bad weather or accidents along the road that slows down the traffic. In the morning, we went to Nilai, Seremban which took us 40 minutes along the highway to visit a site. Tomorrow, will treat my family to a steamboat buffet at the newly opened restaurant in Times Square.
Tonight, I shall be going for a BBQ buffet dinner with my spouse and family for 5 persons at Paradise Hotel’s restaurant. We will use the Club Membership card for 30% discount and there is no ala carte today since there is a BBQ buffet tonight from 7:00pm – 10:00pm. I specially requested for non-smoking area with a nice view. There is a discount for senior citizens at RM 53 net and RM 55 for adults after the discount. Otherwise, it is RM 79 per adult, which I think is a bit pricey. Currently I am also busy with sending out 2017 calendars for next year and printing out the address labels.
I was browsing through the websites this morning when I came upon an interesting site known as Ian Leaf Britain. You can go ahead and click on the link to find our more information and especially the take on living in Great Britain. I have attended my second sister’s wedding to a Caucasian in Southampton last year and she should graduate from her PhD programme by middle of next year. It had been 5 long years since she left Suchou, China to study in Britain.
Today is a public holiday and I plan to have plenty of rest to recover from my flu. Work can wait and making money is not as important as having a good health.
I was immediately down with flu after eating a yellow tim sum bun filled with egg yolk and oil! Yucks! And the tennis coach liked it so much, he recommended it to my spouse and specially waited for this item. After having 2 of such buns, I began vomiting and threw out all the buns and their contents. This could be due to food poisoning, but according to the doctor, it was due to infection. So, he gave me anti-biotics, cough tablets, phlegm tablets and cough syrup for $66. I also did not enjoy the cruise; slept throughout the entire cruise except for dinner and breakfast on Superstar Libra for the second time round. Did not watch any shows either.
Last Sunday, I went for Fit for Life to collect a free goodie bag for the first 500 visitors at SPICE, formerly known as PISA in Penang. Inside the bag was a packet of wet towels and hand sanitation gel in a small bottle that you can keep inside your handbag. I also bought myself an RM 10 bag of soya powder packet, The Star newspapers plus other goodies like cream crackers, etc. Also went for a free bone density test that states that I have osteopenia, the beginning of osteoporosis, but I think the test is inaccurate and not valid as I take calcium supplements and drink Nestle Omega 3 milk almost every day.
I sold more than 150 stamps still stuck to envelopes yesterday for RM 25 which is considered very cheap as I get them free of charge, having tear out from letters of tax invoices, etc from various companies. It was banked to my Public bank account and on the same day, I couriered it out to Sabah via City-Link. People are not rich, but with the little that they have, they are willing to spend on their kids or for their hobbies to keep going and having interests of hobbies. I gave her extra stamps since I have collected more from the time it was listed on mudah website for her sincerity. There are many con artists lurking around mudah looking for easy cash by cheating people like you and me.
I just came back yesterday after a visit to Nilai via Firefly, boarding at 7:40am and reaching Penang at 11:00pm the same day. Rested for a while at our KL condo and collected the access cards with photo for $10 for 2 cards. Did a delivery order and invoice this morning and played a game using Nestle vending machine which gives out either a can of Nescafe or a packet of 3 sachets of coconut flavoured coffee powder mix. Tomorrow, will head to Penang Port to board a SuperStar Libra cruise ship for Cruise to the High Seas for 1 night while enjoying free dinner, magic shows or just relax at the deck enjoying the sea breeze as it cruises along.
Today is Thursday and it is morning at 9:25am. I will be going to KL with my colleague and return on Sunday, also to hear free public talk on Investment at Mid Valley CityMall Halls 2 and 3. There are several speakers talking for 40 minutes each for each day and divided into several sessions per day. There is a goodie bag, free ice-cream and other freebies dished out for the participants. There is also a talk by Bank Negara, PRS, EPF, etc. I hope to have a good time there and learn something to grow my savings. Wish me luck!
