Korean Car Mates (KCM) - Korean Cars Specialist Service Centre

My ride has been my workhorse for the past 2 years+, 3years exactly this October, now clocking in at over 120,000 km. Ever since my 100k km mark, I've begun servicing my Kia Forte outside the Kia service centres, mainly due to the prohibitive high pricing that Naza charges for servicing and labour. I have modified my ride to the extent that voiding the factory warranty seems pretty reasonable for the huge savings incurred by servicing it outside. 

This time around, for my car's 120,000km service I did it at KCM (Korean Car Mates), the Korean Cars Specialist at Glenmarie Shah Alam after hearing lots of recommendations from fellow car club members. Check out my experience, the pricing and what has been changed in my post below.

BAC Offers Free EduNation Programme For All Malaysian Students

So this piece of news came in my inbox today. As I regale to my youth; I realised I could never really grasp the topics that the teacher taught us during maths, chemistry, or even history. I continually struggled to comprehend all the various concepts and formulas. In fact, when I was in Form 5, I used to sit at my desk for hours on end trying to memorise the significant events that led to our country’s independence during History class– of which resulted in little success.

Now, with the help of technology, it’s easier than ever to access a variety of educational resources. Riding the technological wave, the good people at Brickfields Asia College (BAC) have devised  an initiative to help all Malaysian students learn in a fun and new age way. If you’re a Malaysian student seeking additional assistance and support to excel in your studies, fret not! You now have a new resource to turn to, EduNation.
