Merry Christmas & Happy New Year
Merry Christmas & Happy New Year
Managed to bring my family to i-city at last.
Yeah. Some of the views could be quite breathtaking.
Too bad, that Fairy’s wheel wasn’t ready for operation yet.
This giant Christmas Tree was one of the main attraction there. A big crowd was always around it. A throng of peddlers were selling their wares too.
A closer view of those ‘lighted trees’.
A nice amphitheatre.
We didn’t go into the Ice Arena. There wasn’t any chance that we were gonna wear those smelly dirty jackets. Simply horrifying.
Every morning, wife has to struggle to get son ready for school.
He will take his own sweet time getting ready, take a long breakfast. Then even after he get into the car, he will rush down again, saying: I forget my water container!
This morning, wife had to go to the market.
I told her: You just go. I will take son to school.
I made myself a cup of Old Town White Coffee. Sat down and slowly took my breakfast. Sipped my coffee. Poked the egg around.
Seeing that I was so slow, son changed into his uniform (without even being told). Finally, he asked me: Dad, are you ready?
I answered coolly: Should I wash the plate before sending you to school?
He yelled: No!
I get up, changed. Almost got into the car, then said: Opps! I forget to get my socks!
Slowly walked into the house, get my socks, put on my shoe, and finally get the car moving.
On the way there, son was fidgeting. Looked at his watch every 10 seconds.
When the school was in sight, I asked him: Now do you know how mummy feel every morning? Next time can you take a bit more initiative? Don’t drag your feet?
Son smiled reluctantly: Let me think about it.
Me: Oh? Think about it? Tomorrow should I be sending you to school, again?
School starts at 8.00am. We reached the front gate 7:59:30am
Maxis is currently doing a roadshow for its Maxis Home Wired Internet.
That essentially is Maxis’s effort in pushing for its High Speed Broadband.
The nice thing about the roadshow is this: Anyone who sign up during the roadshow will be exempted from paying the installation / activation fees which come up to RM375. Not a bad saving especially during these tough time.
I was sold. Signed up for the 6Mpbs package. Only after I signed up, I realised another benefit:
Maxis will be giving free talk time onto my existing Maxis mobile line. Cool! Way better than Unifi.
Of course. As per Unifi, Maxis will be giving a free fixed phone line, with a cordless phone.
Free Sand Art for children. My daughter’s favourite.
See the big LED TV? Supposedly was to screen Youtube / Facebook to show off the fascinating speed of broadband.
But of course, if you hooked a Playstation onto the TV, you don’t expect the kids to let you use the TV, eh?
You can choose to sit on the sofa. Maxis personnel will snap a photo (and print onto a calendar) for your family members, with a catch. The pillows with the word “Maxis Home” must be displayed prominently on your lap. Haha. Free advertisement for Maxis.
We thought for sometime before we decided to buy a couple of coupons from Groupon.
It was 50% off, and including Government Tax and service tax!
With trepidation, we went to Manhattan Fish Market with the coupons.
To our surprise, the restaurant was packed! It was never this crowded as far as we could remember.
When the waiter arrived, we asked: We should be able to use the coupon here, right?
The waiter nodded curtly: Yes.
Only then, we realised that half the of customers in the restaurant were actually having the same dishes. They probably printed the same coupon! We smiled at each other.
The dishes were up to our expectation. Fresh and succulent.
After this, we will definitely buy more coupons for our meals.
I guess not many of us like the new ‘renovation’ done by Facebook.
This is one extension which reverts Facebook to its ‘classic’ interface.
So what would it do?
It restores the Newsfeed as a chronological collection of posts. It also hides the triangular blue corner tabs that appear in each story.
Try it. You will like it.
Gotten a card from the students I taught yesterday. What a surprise.
Felt nice to be appreciated ^-^
Discover a new TV show, The Suits.
It is a … how to say it? A weird comedy show about legal issues.
The two main characters aren’t your ordinary lawyers. One who is … rash, concise, a closer.
The other one a rookie, but exceptionally brilliant.
The combination? A worthy TV show. Try it.
At the ground floor in 1 Utama New Wing, they have allocated a huge area for this event.
This is only a small portion of it.
I guess this is about the Chang-er and her rabbits? ^-^
Those rabbits are cute.
Of course, commercially speaking, they would put up a lot of booths to push their various mooncakes.
Soft toys, anyone?
More interestingly, though, was that 1 Utama has various perfomances on its stage.
I guess this would be the famous 二十四节令鼓。
Really an energetic perfomance.
I wish everyone : 中秋节快乐。
Some of us are fighting a losing battle when it comes to the ‘weight problem’.
I am sure you have heard the phrase: I gain weight even when I just breath!
Now look at the following story.
One hundred, eighty-three chicken wings. In 12 minutes.
That’s what it took for Sonya Thomas of Virginia to beat her opponents — including Joey Chestnut (currently ranked No. 1 by the International Federation of Competitive Eating) — to win the United States Chicken Wing Eating Championship.
Mentally, we would imagine Sonya to be … on the heavy side?
Now lets see her photo.
Need I say more?
