Service Your Vehicle @ KIA Service Centre For Chinese New Year

Chinese New Year is just around the corner, and the exodus back to hometown has begun. Everybody has either started or is going to head back in time for the celebrations. Now any long journey can be dangerous if our vehicle has not been checked or serviced recently, hence I was at the nearest KIA Service Centre a couple of days back in Setapak for my 60,000 km service in preparation of the journey back.

Baby Martin's New Huggies Yellow Duckie Float

Recently I have plans to get Baby Martin into the swimming pool, just for him to get a taste of being submerged in water, other than the bath tub.

If you have not read yet, I got the yellow duckie float from the 7th Maternity & Children Expo 2014 @ Midvalley , from my purchases at the Huggies booth.

Chicago Rib House @ Gurney Plaza Penang

It was to be a simple birthday lunch for mum, as she did not want anything fancy. We dropped by the Chicago Rib House at Gurney Plaza Penang, one which I have not tried yet. I have tried the branch in 1 Utama a couple of weeks back for their Christmas menu (Chicago Rib House 1 Utama Christmas Menu ) and it was pretty good, so there I was again hoping for a satisfying lunch.

BookUp: Your Online Source Of Secondhand Books In Malaysia

I've been introduced to this website recently, BookUp.my which triggered my interest as it works to resolve the current dilemma that the majority of students in Malaysia are facing in recent times. In fact, a decade ago I was already feeling the heat of expensive university textbooks, and the only workaround that time was to source from outgoing seniors and sometimes that's hard to come by.

Patching Up A Flat Tyre After New Year's Day

Waking up on the second day of 2014, to a sight which made me feel like I did something wrong last year and this was a punishment to me. I saw my car slumped to the left side, as the front left tyre was left without any air inside, being flat and all. Instantly, my thoughts were to dig out my tyre changing tools and my spare tyre from the boot of my car, to change to a spare tyre and drive to the nearest tyre shop to repair my flat one. 


Seeing this sight always makes me sad
