    Some are from local fishermen, some from Indonesia and Thailand.
    It's cheaper here even after conversion

    I'm having breakfast in my usual cafe.

    Nowadays, I normally go to my usual cafe inside Sjmc but today I go to the one in Taipan as I want to buy joss sticks for CNY from a shop which is across the road from this cafe in Taipan.

    The cafe is playing jazz music, it is nice for breakfast ..

    I went to the Thai Corner restaurant last night which had shifted to a new premise months ago. They are now occupying the former shoplot of "Endang".

    I think this is the 4th or 5th time I went to their new premise. I have been asking them to install the glass wall/door like their previous premise - to keep the restaurant's air cond from escaping ... and to prevent mosquitoes from coming in but it seems like they are happy to keep the entrance wide open..

    I likely won't eat there again if there is no glass wall/door installed... but may still take home my favorite pandan chicken..

    3 Head phones=$12.00

    It's Sunday and I went and walked around a swap meet which is an informal gathering for the barter or sale of used articles or handicrafts. Swap meets have now become synonymous with flea markets, which are open-air markets where cheap and second-hand goods are sold. For clarification purposes, a swap meet is a gathering where individuals barter goods with each other or where others come to purchase goods at the gathering with actual money.

    The asking price for the Philips Head phone was A$10.00 & I just gave him $10/=..cheap already.

    Then I walked further down & this fellow also sell Headphones--a CV-230 & a Sennheiser..I asked how much, A$1.00 each.

    I asked why he was selling, he said moving to Eastern States.

    So I sapu the 2 as well.

    Now I have 5, I already have 2 others at home

    Am looking forward to put my spray paint skill to the test again this Saturday. Just have to do this once a while to keep my skill in good form.
    Been helping my son and DIL paint up their new home. Contractor quoted RM2k just for labor to paint the house. NO WAY Jose! DIY. Spray paint his new gate this Saturday...no brush painting..that's for amateurs.

    Yes, better bring ur own for better sound & insulation quality. Also they collect them 45 min before landing leaving you without any headset.

    Make sure you have a 2 pin adaptor
