Decision?

Saturday, August 22, 2015

Very often you are in a position to decide either to go with your decision or not. Most of my decisions decided after I came out from the toilet (but seriously? I think most of us like that too). Lol. I usually take some time and give a deep thought if the decision affect my long term plans.

I’m in my late 20’s and less than few years to hit that awesome thirty. Ouh… Wow? Time flies. Yes. I am proud of myself and grateful that I have reach this far. I ask myself if I have make or made any big decision so far… yes, my career and education. What else? There are more things coming my way… life partner and to own a house.

I know most of us are delusion. Thinking that we are forever young. Ouch. It’s not a bad thing though to think that we are forever young but try to keep it minimum. Finding a right partner is not an easy task. I read about this article on the net few days ago and I like how the writer wrote it from different perspectives.

“And when you choose a life partner, you’re choosing a lot of things, including your parenting partner and someone who will deeply influence your children, your eating companion for about 20,000 meals, your travel companion for about 100 vacations, your primary leisure time and retirement friend, your career therapist, and someone whose day you’ll hear about 18,000 times.” Click here to read full story.

I guess my time is running fast too. Keep moving!

Mazda 6 for me!

Friday, July 31, 2015

Ok. It has been decided. I go for Mazda 6. I booked the crystal deep blue and will be out end of August. I hope!

I choose 2.5cc and low spec. I don't see the point of having high spec when I know i don't use or need all the features. Right? Why do i have to pay for a few extra thousand when I can use it for saving or travel.

Hence, now I will need to revise back my financial. yay~

As for now... keep waiting!


Choosing a new car

Sunday, July 26, 2015

Choosing car is not an easy task especially for the first timer who wants to own a car. I remember years ago when I first bought a car it took me months before I decided to go for Hyundai Tucson. It fits all the criteria. Diesel engine, SUV-type, spacious and awesome. My car is 6 years old now and having issues with the engine… I sent it to this Thailand workshop in Jerudong and waiting for them to give me some updates.

Hence, while waiting for my car to fix I go surveying new cars. I am actually thinking to buy a new car since my car only left 1 year with the bank. After looking at my balance sheet, I am looking a new car that is below $600/monthly. There are many cars that fall in this category, from sedan to SUV. I like to go for a Japanese car sedan (Mazda, Honda and Toyota).

I went to NBT Bunut showroom and there’s a new Toyota Corolla Altis on display. I have read all the good review about this car and the red colour is awesome. I don’t have a chance to go for a test drive but the salesman is trying to get me a slot next week or so. Everything is good about the car except it doesn’t equip with the leather seats.


Then I went to Honda showroom and instantly fall in love with Honda Civic. I always love to drive a Honda Civic and again there is no test drive available. Ouch. It really fits my criteria. A good engine, low fuel consumption (1.6cc), reverse camera and sensors, leather seats and good infotainment system.

After Honda, I went to Nissan showroom. Nissan Pulsar turbo is on display outside the showroom. I was like… WOW. I went for a test-drive and WOW. The cabin is good in handling the road noise and smooth gears transition. It doesn’t come with Bluetooth and the LCD screen is the smallest to my liking. Sigh.


Finally, I went to Mazda showroom next door. I fall in love with Mazda 6. Loving every bits of it. I did a test drive and WOW. All the criteria I look for a new car is there.


All of the cars above is 1.6cc except mazda 6 which is 2.5cc and the price is something not to be missed! Verdict? It is mazda 6 :)

Paid to travel?

Monday, July 20, 2015


I have been approached by few of my friends who introduced this Multi-Level Marketing (MLM) programme “travel and get paid”. Sort of. They let me to watch a short clip where they go around the world cheaply. The video is really convincing…. Watch it below.


But what's the catch? You have to be a member of this MLM programme. Like many MLM, you need to get more people join under you and bla bla bla. See how it works? MLM is not a bad thing. I have joined quite a few MLM but specifically this one... I'll pass :)

I have several reasons why it doesn't suit me:
1) The monthly fee (Why should I pay for something that I will not use it frequently?)
2) The package cover  high-end hotels and major attractions (Really? I'm fine with cheap hotel/hostel. I'm an adventurous traveller. This package is for tourist or for someone who is lazy to do planning but where's the fun, right?)
3) The flight fare is not included (This is a major turn off for me)

Having said that, I am looking forward for anyone to sponsor/fund my trip. LOL.

Sportypal

I have been using Sportypal since February 2010 which covered 1357km and 148hours of workout. Mostly I use it for running and hiking. It is one of the best sports app for mobile phone but I rarely see people use it here. It's okay... that put me on the top 10 list. Wohooo!

There are quite a few good apps out there but I trusted this one. Period. 

Sportpal is FREE! :)

Go get the app here www.sportypal.com or you can download it at appstore/playstore.
