The Quarz Clock

After Alan's "World Time" clock...


dropped dead a year ago, we bought a RM 2.90 1 clock from Carrefour, Alamanda. It survived only...


one trimester, no wonder its branded 1 (a Carrefour made brand).

Last weekend, WK and Zongz went to buy a new clock from Carrefour, Alamanda...


our new "World Time", available RM 4.90 in Carrefour, Alamanda.

When they came out of Carrefour, they anxiously showed us our new clock and then WK noticed its a...


quarz clock not a quartz clock. OMG, we just bought a fake quartz clock from China. We turned behind to look at the operation instruction...


step 3 stated that
replaced battery once a year even if clock is still running.

then Alan said "i doubt it even last one sem."

The case of the stolen Homer Simpson

i was doing my daily routine, checking thestar.com.my then lowyat.net then i would like to share something not related to me but i find it very funny


some villians kidnapping Homer Simpson, lol

2 Malaysian college students couldn't wait till July 26 for The Simpsons movie and decided to steal a Homer Simpson figurine from a Simpson family life-size portrait. ... bla bla bla ... o harm done in the end. 20th Century Fox representative Moo Hon Mei told AP that Homer would be reunited with the rest of his dysfunctional family shortly.

Free MMU Library Services... NOT

after the rocket fly New Vehicle Sticker 2007/2008 charges from RM 1.50 to RM 12 (for students), the "TMC (Top Management Committee Members)" decided to charge RM 100 for library services after 10 years of free services.


from bulletin board

ALL students, would be charged library fees at RM100 per student per academic year and this shall be reflected at all students' financial info kiosk.


unlucky me, a person who hardly go to library to sleep/talk nor borrow any books nor pattoh in the library and will be off for industrial training during the second trimester have to pay RM 100.

Thank you
my dear TMC 'friends'

i would like to remind our fellow MMU friends to make use of the library, make sure its RM 100 worthy.

Scotch-Brite Bath Scrub

i went to Jaya Jusco, Equine Park for grocery shopping last weekend, the sponge scrub in my toilet is kinda old and we need a new one. so i went for a survey...

  • a non branded sponge scrub is RM 2.50 each.


  • a Scotch-Brite sponge scrub is RM 4.90 each.


  • i bought neither of those, instead i cant believed i spent RM 9.90 on a sponge scrub.

    ladies and gentlemen, let me introduce the


    sponge scrub which worth RM 9.90 ~!!! Scotch-Brite Bath Scrub by 3M.

    look at the convincing cardboard labels, cool. this is the Bath Scrub version, there is also the all purpose version but i already forgotten its name.


    diagonal view: it comes with a plastic handle so u do not need to worry in touching any of the creamy+sucky+fugly dirt on your bath tiles.

    Pros: Scotch-Brite's excellent performance, easy to use handle.
    Cons: compared to the typical Scotch-Brite sponge, YES, i spent RM 5 on the stupid plastic handle to keep my hands clean.

    Verdict: for those who wont mind paying for more performance.

    706 Just a bad ride

    i just came back from Penang, bought my ticket from some Konsortium counter in Penang. lately theres been lotsa counters selling Konsortium bus tickets. i wanted to buy my tic from my favourite big Konsortium counter but was dragged by some fella wearing Konsortium tee to buy from his smally counter. since its the same, i make sure the smally counter didnt go gulung tikar.

    eventhough, i bought a Konsortium bus ticket but that day i was given a green Season bus from Freebury, kononnya all of them came from same company or Star Alliance of busses.

    i took the last seat in the 12pm bus back to KL. and my advice is...

    DO NOT TAKE THE LAST SEAT
    especially during a rainy day

     

    water leaking from the top of the 'emergency' door

     

    water rolling here and there on the floor

    the bus driver was kinda pro, horning any, i do mean ANY, car in his way. i reach KL in 4 hours.

    love the driver,

     

    hate the Freebury

    Updates from Cyberjaya:
  • Dell's office in Cyberjaya is almost completed, my dream company...

  • Mingchu in Equine Park opens its upper floor and balcony with more stalls and TVs, i rate Mingchu's repu half star below Asia Cafe, SJ. and

  • momofofo can be viewed using Apple's Safari Beta, and we looks better in it!

    Dome

    my family used to love Dome, i used to love Dome...
    i love their carrot cakes :D

    since im living a campus life in Cyberjaya, Dome is never a place for me to eat, because its not widely available (not as mushroom as McDonald's) and not as affordable. thats why every time i go back Penang, i'll sure drag my mum to yumcha there.

    few days ago, my sis ponteng her tuition so that she can join me and my mum to the Island Plaza's Dome outlet. as we checked, there is a price hike, my favourite cake went up by RM1 (from RM8.90 to RM9.90 to now RM10.90 if not wrong). we ordered our favourites, my sis: sausage roll & iced chocolate, mum: flat white and me: carrot cake & iced mocha.

    my sis's and mum's orders are fine but my iced mocha is tasteless (as serious as more diluted than Kayu's milo ais). i didnt check my cake is freshly baked or not but my carrot cake was not up to standard. with the price hike, it sucks.

    Verdict: not worth my sis to ponteng her tuition for
