Just when I thought my world was crashing..
..and by crashing I mean finding out that my camera doesn’t support 2GB sd card AFTER I’ve put an order on eBay for a RM63 2Gb SD card from a well respected trader and my charger doesn’t want to charge my camera’s battery(and we all know life has no meaning for me anymore if I don’t have my camera at hand).
After some long internet-less hours at school, I came home to look up the latest specifications for my Lumix FX8 and YES! They DO support 2Gb! I had to contact the eBay trader, Jeric, that I’m not buying two 1GB SD cards anymore. I did try to cheer him up by saying I’ll tell my friends about the promotion that he has for his SD cards! Rm55 for 1GB SD cards! Go to his eBay account now for good and reliable buys!(or so his 300+feedbacks say). The guy runs a computer store in Penang.
A trip to the camera shop at Tesco Sg. Petani and my charger was cured! Turns out that the adaptor/sockets-what-do-you-call-them-the-thing-you-plug-your-electronic-items-into at home was faulty and all the charger needed was a healthier one. SO NOTHING WRONG!! YAY! No need to spend RM185 on a new battery or RM100 on a new charger! Yayyy!
And also, after being upset for more than a year, Tesco Sg. Petani has finally made my day by deciding to stock up on Rice Crispies! I no longer have to ask my mum to buy for me five boxes of the crunchy cereals(only applies if it’s in milk and sugar) everytime I go back to Subang! Me loveeee Rice Crispies!
Life rocks now!
Life rocks more. Read below.
Perhaps one of the very reasons why I love blogging so much. The information comes to you!
But I guess some other people had a tougher day..
The furniture shop in Taman Ria, a place where we always have our lunch, caught fire last night.
Must’ve been quite a fire. Some more almost everything in there is wooden. 🙁 Poor thing.
Imagine the losses..
Damn scary. Luckily it’s not an enclosed area.
I suppose they were trying to see what they could salvage.
Dominoes effect caused by fire?
Lie Yuen said most of the time, furniture shop owners who are not doing too well will torch their own shops so that they can claim the insurance and then open another shop or another business.
Luckily I managed to save one cupboard back in Sept 06.:P Can’t imagine my poor (very functional)cupboard catching fire if I didn’t buy it back then.

Alrighty, now I know where to hunt!

jO: ehhee , now got new hunting place.:)
Have been reading your blog for qutie awhile and enjoy reading every entry that you have done. 🙂
Just to say, I have the earring rack too. I got mine at a wholesaler along Petaling St. too. If you are a wholesaler , you can get it for 50% off which is RM36 for big and RM28 for small sizes. or else it would be the normal prices of RM72 and RM56.
P/S : I live in SS19! You do too right?!
jo: !!!!!!!!! one of the babes from tickle-me.net!! hehehe you guys are among the pioneer bloggers in the blogosphere, aren’t you?:D Thanks for finally leaving a comment then!!:)
Must be the same wholesaler then! … ahh.. maybe i should buy a whole lot and go sell them on e-bay. heh:) can get it cheap AND make money. woot!
nah! i used to live there when i was 2-3 years old. but i live across the road now..SS18:)
Were you from SU too?? since ur staying in 19 and all.
Hey it was no prob at all…I know how frustrating it can be to hunt down for a specific thing..
I’m from the July04 intake and I think Prema introduced us once but I doubt you remember me. Visit my blog to see if I look familiar hehe…
jo: haha..oh yeah and i was in the january intake! … you do look familiar! but you’ll have to forgive me coz i’m quite bad with faces and names..:( I can remember numbers better though. strange.
Why get an earring tower? Get something weird and quicky like a tree or something.
jo: hehe oh hello! you came by again!:D i would like to! yeah, like one of those bronze wired decoratives….can’t find though. those would look better with necklaces, bracelets and stuff.
Oh, actually you might wanna try out http://www.lelong.com.my for cheap stuff electronic stuff too. I tried out, bought Bluetooth Handsfree Headset for RM60 only!!! and a PDA for RM200. =)
BTW, glad you found your favorite cereal, I am still searching for Penang Asam Laksa in Nottingham.. sigh…
jo: wahh..PDA good quality or not?:D
