MMS


If you think sharing means
caring, you may experience
the greatest shock of your life.


The MMS is a great invention. It allows you to share images over the phone. But you've got to know where to draw the line. Never put yourself in a compromising position. You may regret it sooner, rather than later. Protect yourself by practising self regulation.
Be smart phone users.

My story:

Recently my friend showed me a few short clips of pornography in her handset. I was surprised and I asked her how she got hold of those obscene videos. She told me that her salesperson sent to her through wifi.

Most of the videos were self-videoing. So you can imagine that...


Win an Apple iPad!

Suddenly this message popped up on my screen and it read..





I am selected??

Curiously, I clicked the site and filled up whatever I was asked..




Finally, I was offered a chance to win an Apple iPad!



I answered a few questions and I had one more step to go!


So, without hesitation, I texted ON WIN..


Shortly afterwards, I received this message.


Then, next..

My goodness, I was charged RM4 for this message..


One after another came but it was terminated as my credit was too low.


Phew..Later when I topped up my credit, I quickly texted STOP ALL..


It was a trick..I learned a lesson..

Never ever trust this kind of scam..

Ensure my health

An Ensure promoter will occasionally promote this milk powder at our shop. Whenever she is here, she will certainly let me have a small cup of the ready mixed milk.

Well, I don't quite like to drink milk but this milk really managed to charm me. I sort of like to drink it now.

This promoter has been here for quite a number of times already but this time, she gave me this cute pillow..




Ensure with FOS


I was so touched as she said, "Don't forget my heart!" I won't forget her even if she doesn't come again to our shop..




She talked to our customers about the benefits of drinking milk powder. I heard so much that so much so I got myself a small can. I will start drinking Ensure for sure to ensure my good health..

My favorite day

Yesterday was Friday night but I had to work as one of my cashiers was on leave. Otherwise, I would take my girl out for dinner. Well, Friday is normally the only night where I can take leave from work.

Anyway, Friday night is the only time where I get to see new customers as they just walk in after visiting the pasar malam near my place.

And also business is moderate too as on this night our rival just a few doors away only closes on Friday night.

I would look forward to this special day. So I simply love Friday.


The Seven-Day Week

The Babylonians marked time with lunar months. They proscribed some activities during several days of the month, particularly the
first -- the first visible crecent,
seventh -- the waxing half moon,
fourteenth -- the full moon,
nineteenth -- dedicated to an offended goddess,
twenty-first -- the waning half moon,
twenty-eigth -- the last visible crecent,
twenty-nineth -- the invisible moon, and
thirtieth (possibly) -- the invisible moon.
The major periods are seven days, 1/4 month, long. This seven-day period was later regularized and disassociated from the lunar month to become our seven-day week.

Sunday -- Sun's day

Middle English sone(n)day or sun(nen)day

Tiu (Twia) is the English/Germanic god of war and the sky.

Wednesday -- Woden's day

Middle English wodnesday, wednesday, or wednesdai

Woden is the chief Anglo-Saxon/Teutonic god. Woden is the leader of the Wild Hunt.

Thursday -- Thor's day

Thor is the Norse god of thunder.

Friday -- Freya's day

Sex Education


Sex education is a broad term used to describe education about human sexual anatomy, sexual reproduction, sexual intercourse, reproductive health, emotional relations, reproductive rights and responsibilities, abstinence, contraception, and other aspects of human sexual behavior.

The existence of AIDS has given a new sense of urgency to the topic of sex education.


What do you think? Is this subject necessary?

Good Riddance

Suddenly this old lady/customer showed me a packet of Breeze soap powder which was already opened. She brought it back to us as there were lumps of soap powder.

So my staff just pressed the packet and the lumps were loosen but she was not satisfied. She wanted us to refund her money but I insisted that it was not possible as she had used most of the soap powder already.

She got angry and accused us of cheating her. I nicely told her that we wouldn't know if the stuff were in good condition or not. But she simply said that we always sell old stuff.

That was not true!

Our stock is always rotating and I don't buy that accusation. I got angry and told her off. Since she always compare us with the shop next door, she could just go over there and get her stuff there.

She realized that I was pissed off. She quickly collected her stuff and went off.

This lady is always fussy and I always try to satisfy her needs to get her stuff. She knows I will be nice to her but surprisingly, she saw my true color today.

I guess she wouldn't try to be funny next time. Even if she doesn't come to our shop again, I would bide her good riddance!

We are Family



(CHORUS:)
We are family
I got all my sisters with me
We are family
Get up ev'rybody and sing

Ev'ryone can see we're together
As we walk on by
(FLY!) and we fly just like birds of a feather
I won't tell no lie
(ALL!) all of the people around us they say
Can they be that close
Just let me state for the record
We're giving love in a family dose

(CHORUS x2)

Living life is fun and we've just begun
To get our share of the world's delights
(HIGH!) high hopes we have for the future
And our goal's in sight
(WE!) no we don't get depressed
Here's what we call our golden rule
Have faith in you and the things you do
You won't go wrong
This is our family Jewel

(REPEAT CHORUS TO FADE)




Ya, we are family..

Do visit my new blog, Just about anything

A friend in need is a friend indeed

I own this Toyota Unser since 2000. I had experienced many incidents with this vehicle but never before in a row.

The story..

Last Saturday, I drove back home in the evening to take my dinner. After I had my bath and had taken my dinner, I was ready to drive back to the shop. To my surprise, my unser's engine was dead. It shouldn't be as I had the new battery just about 2 months away.

So I drove the other car, Corolla, back to the shop and told my husband about it. He immediately called the mechanic. Quickly, I went back to my house and waited for him. He was fast and came in just a short while.

After checking the battery which condition was still good, he realized that the knob on top of the battery had loosen. So he just tighten it and the engine was back to good.

I asked him, "Are you sure it's ok? We are going to KL tomorrow."

He replied, "Should be no problem."

The next morning, that was last Sunday, my husband drove it all the way to KL. When we reached a car park, he switched off the engine. Then when we were ready to go on, it happened again. The engine couldn't start.

Oh my goodness, guess what happened..

The knob had snapped and it was impossible to do anything except to call for a mechanic.

My husband asked a guard to recommend a mechanic and he could only come in 2 hours time. I was thinking, "Why not I call my brother to see if he could help."

I called my third brother's hp but there was no answer so I called his home. Again no answer. Never mind, I called my fourth brother and there was no answer too. Guess he was in church.

What else could I do except to call my long-lost friend whom I met again 3 months ago. When I called her, she was having her lunch with her family in a restaurant. She told me she would call me back later. But later would be too late!

I quickly said. "I need your help." Sensing my urgency, she talked to me and I told her everything. She was going to get back to her place and called her mechanic there as she hadn't got his phone number right then.

Ok, that took her about half an hour and when she called me again, my husband agreed to take her mechanic rather than the first one. So we waited for another half an hour. My friend and her husband drove the mechanic to our waiting place.

The mechanic just spent a mere few minutes and everything was back to normal. He just changed a new knob for the battery.

I was really grateful to my friend. She was such a kind person as she insisted to help even when my husband said not to trouble her.

Thank you so much, my dear friend. I really appreciate your kindness..




A friend in need is a friend indeed..
