cameron highland ni sejuk.... ada aircond tersembunyi ke?

" Cameron Highland ni sejuk....ada aircond tersembunyi ke? " that was Aiman's question upon arriving the highland around 8am. I tried to answer by explaining at higher latitude, the climate will be much cooler but he could not grasp the concept since he already focusing on the view of the tea trees. pffttt there goes my technical explanation :p this was last 2 weekend, not last weekend, but the weekend before, if you get what i meant... hihihi... anyway, school holiday just started but since my hubby is going to be overwhelmed by work spending the first half of the school holiday outstation, so we decided to give the kids some excitement by having a short getaway before the school holiday plus we (the adults) badly need the fresh air to de-stress. We started our journey around 4am Saturday morning... I just love travelling early morning, less traffic (even though I only be the co-pilot), cool climate and the kids will be sleeping. So no need to answer "Dah sampa

Is paying off a property loan as quickly as possible a wise move?

Another old article from Lee Mun Wai, Financial Snacks of The Star. Now this make me thinking more on how to do a wiser move regarding property loan.... hmmmmmmmm.... Where is my thinking cap??? ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The Star Online  > Business Monday November 19, 2012 Is paying off a property loan as quickly as possible a wise move? Financial Snacks by Lee Mun Wai AT first thought, it might appear prudent to pay off a property loan as quickly and as soon as possible. However, is this really the wisest and smartest financial decision? Consider using cheaper home loans to grow your net worth. - LEE MUN WAI writes... Home loans usually have lower interest rates than vehicle loans and other unsecured credit, because the use of a home as collateral reduces the lenders risk of financial loss. People can refinance an existing loan and extract additional funds to pay off credit cards and other de

How to retire with RM1mil in 3 easy steps

After trying to find out the latest article by Lee Mun Wai, I just have to share his old article here ... very interesting and he put it out so simple... but the main question, can we do it??? ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The Star Online  > Business Monday February 18, 2013 How to retire with RM1mil in 3 easy steps “I’m trying to build a retirement nest egg, but I really have mixed feelings about the pharaoh’s decision to raise our retirement age.” “First, get a million ringgit...” Okay, it's not that simple! You have to understand how to operate the three steps of wealth creation, writes LEE MUN WAI. THE three steps (T.A.R.) are: how much TIME you have, the AMOUNT you save, and your RETURNS on your investment assets. The slightest change in one or two of these steps can affect your path to RM1mil. The first step is how much TIME you have. When you think about getting your first RM1mil,

CANDY CRUSH SAGA !!!! Somehow the term 'addicted' is a little bit scary. But yesterday hubby showed to me the life lessons of candy crush :) who says playing games is a waste of time? ;) 8 Life Lessons Taught by Candy Crush: No 8: Life is not always fair. Sometimes you get lucky with a good board, sometimes you don't. Deal with it. No 7: Persistence is the key to success.

Hon hon hon hon pin pin pin pin pin

Last night from 8pm to almost 11pm, it was an almost non-stop honking plus jeritan2 manusia. At first, i thought it is coz by the trafiic jam. The traffic seems unmoving at that time at LDP highway near KJ. But the noise was persistent more than an hour. Then only i realized there was some perhimpunan organized by i-really-dont-care-who for whatever reason at Stadium KJ. And according to the self-proclaimed-journalists (some of my fb friends), there was a very very huge crowd at the stadium. But then it made me wonder several things. 1- how does that huge of crowd can populate that small stadium?  From the pics in fb,  it easily seems like 100,000 people. But Stadium KJ is much smaller than stadium shah alam ( which i believe have around 80k seating capacity thus 100k people assemble there is not a big feat for stadium shah alam ). But still if only around 50k people coming to Stadium KJ..... 2- how do they get there? Carparks in Stadium KJ is very limited. 100 maybe. 200++
