Calling for PTPTN Debtors

I have been someone who tries to live a righteous life, at least.
I know sometimes I do make mistakes in life, I have tried stealing *oops* but yet, i think it's not right to 'owe' people $$. Let's live our lives 'debtless'.

Some people thought that I would have areasonable amount of $$ to study at MMU.
No, I think my family comes from the lower average income group.
At least I tried to minimized their burdens by applying for PTPTN loan.
I was not even a bright student.
I wont get any scholarships ( I saved my postages not applying for any).
And, I am far away from being a First class honors student.
So, forget about waiving the PTPTN loan.

I started paying probably in 2001 (very the chuan chuan plus paying my own malaysian cheapo car, Iswara - Proton Saga).
No choice.
I needed a car too.

And now, after paying for XXX no. of years (yes, i'm very old already), I'm proud, at least, the 'Admin Fee' has dropped from Rm100++ to just RM24.70.
So, pay up your loans la PEOPLE!!!!
Unless, you feel that you deserve to get that $$ from the government, then, I've got nothing to say.
Maybe I need to borrow second time for study (again), since the economy is so bad.
I don't think I have anymore 'cash' to pay my loan if I'm out of job.

Very healthy balance now.
( I hope PTPTN would waive my loan fees for posting this entry :D, but *dream on*)

You are a clever student then.
I have to pay FULL amount.
And, the $$ i got from PTPTN is not enough to pay to my Money Making University.

I was not a rich student.
In fact, a super thrift-student.
I used to buy chap fan for lunch and put a lot a lot, eat half, and save the other half for dinner.
Or i eat buffet for breakfast and keep all the food in my tummy for lunch and dinner and the next day's breakfast and lunch.

And yups... try asking those who has had their PTPTN loans, majority is not interested to pay!

What's the Difference between 'Net' and "Nett"

Since it's part of my group's job to publish daily billings report to the management, our Director (from US) pinpointed that we should fix the spelling of 'nett billings' to 'net billings'.
My colleauge was looking at google, trying to understand the 'right' spelling to be used.

I finally checked it from Wikipedia, and found that 'nett' is BRITISH and 'net' is AMERICAN.
No wonder he's offended to fix it to 'net'!
C'mon. I'm in an american MNC, I should be more sensitive towards this.

Nyonya Willow is now at Arena Curve

Penang is indeed a food haven, where both tourists and locals are blessed with many good foods. When it comes to Peranakan or rather, Nyonya food, we could never forget Penang..... aside from Malacca and Singapore.

Nyonya Willow used to be located in a home at Sungai Tiram but now it's currently moved to Arena Curve. Getting there is a little tricky as the parking space around Olive Tree hotel is usually full, thus I'd recommend to park inside the Arena curve where the entrance is situated opposite d'piazza.  I personally find that it's now situated in a more strategic place, as it's easily accessible and nearer to my work place.

As it was on a usual weekday lunch, we ordered a few dishes like jiu hu char (RM14) , lor bak (RM16), kapitan chicken (RM16), pork leg vinegar (RM18), perut ikan (RM18) and babi ponteh (RM16). I'd recommend the kapitan chicken and perut ikan, as well as their gulai tumis (I tried it earlier in my previous visit).

Traveling to the Southern Thailand Border - Dannok

It's been a while since I've gotten my passport stamped, thus, I thought I could do a day trip at the southern Thailand border. Being a frequent traveler to Thailand, I've always booked a van service to take me to the border. This time, it's really my first time trying out going to the border by foot.

It wasn't a good day for me as I forgotten to bring my umbrella.
Thus, I bought a not-so-nice one that day.
Moreover exchange rate is really bad. It's like 8.30 rate.
Then, I didn't know how to get the immigration form. So i chose the easier way to go to the shop and get it printed out (I later found out from my next trip that i can walk into the office to get one)

I started my walk along the shops to take a look at clothes, food, and also I bought a floor mat (funny, i thought it was nice). Also, not forgetting 7-11 for the cold drinks.
The weather was really crazy that I stopped at McD for free wifi and aircon, and the samurai pork burger.

 Seriously, tahpau…
