Self storage

Some people get too attached to their possessions and never want to let go of them. I don’t, in fact I hate clutters and would throw anything away if I don’t use them anymore. Well if you’re one of those people who must absolutely keep those sentimental stuff but have no more room in your house for them then consider using self storage facilities. They don’t cost much and you get to keep all your clutters!

Spending Chinese New Year

Well let's see what we're going to do for Chinese New Year this year..tomorrow we're having a New Year lunch with our friends. Was supposed to be a dinner but Selwyn and Caitlin have to go somewhere in the evening. So lunch for this year it is then. We do this every year all 3 families and will continue to do so for many more years to come.

Then next Friday we'll probably go to Crown again for their Hawkers Bazaar down on the Esplanade like they have every year. It's becoming too predictable now with the same acts and performances year in year out. And there's no fireworks like they did when they started the first year!

Acne treatment

Back when I was in high school there were a lot of my classmates who had very serious problems with their acne, some worse than others. I was one of the lucky ones in that I did not have much problem except for a pimple here and there every now and then. Some of my classmates had really bad acne covering their whole faces. I think there wasn’t much acne treatment back then except for some acne cream. Nowadays there are so many to choose from so there’s no excuse for bad acne days.

Lunar New Year & Australia Day

This year's Lunar New Year falls on the same day as Australia Day meaning there will actually be a holiday on the day! Living in Australia for so many years I've missed the exciting festive season as was celebrated back home in Sibu. It is such a contrast here even with the event celebrated by most of the Asian residents. Nothing compares to New Year in Sibu so I don't even bother to make an effort anymore.

Instead it'll just be another day comes Australia Day or Lunar New Year Day. At least it'll be a holiday, maybe have a barbie with some friends or family..that's about it.

Diet pill

A famous local funny celebrity who has always been on the heavy side has decided to shed her extra weigh. The public has always known her as a heavy woman and in a way I think that’s probably her trademark as well. I heard on the radio in an interview that her goal is to target 85 kilo and that will be a huge weigh off her. Well good on her if she can achieve that for her health but I wonder if her new image will be detrimental to her fame since everyone’s used to her extra weigh. Losing weigh is hard and I’m glad I don’t have that problem but if I do I’d rather have a miracle diet pill and not bother with the hard work! Of course that’s wishful thinking.

This will do fine for me

Yes I know I've been lazy in updating my blogs. Rather than doing so on the weekends I opted to do my scale modeling instead. And yes I've been slack in updating the progress of my Millennium Falcon model as well! Actually the scale modeling project was going the way of the 'too hard' basket as well until I bought the magnifying lamp from Officeworks.

The magnifying lamp from Officeworks is a gem and I can do my projects with it. Cost me $149 but it's worth every cents. It's not exactly the real thing like what they have in a lab which costs thousands of dollars but this one will do fine for me.

Term life insurance

Life is so unpredictable; one minute we are enjoying the best of our health and the next minute things can change for the worse. It is so imperative that we safeguard ourselves and our families for any unexpected nasties. It is imperative that we all get ourselves insured like a term life insurance. Sure when we’re young we think we’re indestructible and life insurance is the last thing we want to spend our hard earned money but it could well be the best investment of our lives.

Everyone's on holiday except us

Even though it's the holiday season there's a lot of work for us to do. Our customers left us with a lot of work so we had to try to finish as much as we could in preparation for more work when most of our clients come back from their holidays.

Having so much work we are running low on cardboard paper. I hope what we have left over we can manage to last for another week because our paper supplier is also on holiday for another week!

Tankless water heater

A couple of years back my friend’s water heater in their home broke down and they had to get a new one. It was the perfect opportunity for them to get the latest state of the art tankless water heater that doesn’t require a big water tank like a conventional water heater. It is slightly dearer but I think it’s worth every cents of it, I would get one for myself if mine broke too. You get instant hot water!

Happy New Year 2009

Happy New Year everybody! Can't believe it's 2009 already, where did the year go? So how did you celebrate the New Year? Did you get smashed on New Year's Eve? I know I didn't because I was at home watching the countdown to the New Year on TV and the fireworks.

But we did get to celebrate the New Year on the first at our friends' house. We stayed all day and they had their whole clan of family there; it easily could have been over 100 people! Lucky they have a big house to put them all in. So that's it for another year, let's hope 2009 will be an even better year for all of us.
