For Pol

OK, I got something for Uncle Pol today. Who wants to help me?

You want to help me Kaelynn?

Wah, you so clever, hor. You see your sister's toys and you almost know how to use it

Here you go. I got for Uncle Pol three air beds. Two singles (RM24.90) with a built-in pump and one double (RM29.90) without any pump. They're heavy and it took me ages to get to the counter and pay for them. Are you ready, Kaelynn?

Ah, thank you, Dear. You can model for me now. But no saliva or bite marks, OK?

The secret to a healthy looking skin

Kristine has a nice smooth soft skin. Yeah, although she is just a small child but you too can have such skin. For today, she will show you how without buying all those expensive creams. etc. and insurance.

First, you need to scrub off the old skin. Presenting the Skin Peeler 3000

Make sure you go over the whole body at least three times

And yes, you can also use it as tongue cleaner/scraper

You have to do his everyday for the next fortnight. After that, (and if you have eaten all your vitamins and painkillers) new skin will come out. And for that soft feel, use some meat tenderisers.

Kaelynn's trip to the Hospital

I just came to my Sister in Law's house yesterday evening because my wife took the kids there for a holiday break right after Kaelynn's Doctor appointment. This time, I was told, she screamed the house down. Normally, when the Doctor gave her some injections, she would quietly smile and think nothing of it. thank goodness, I could say, I was not there hwen it happened. ha ha ha ha

Goodies from the tTrip

These are some of the things I got in Lumut. Its not much but I just love going to old towns because their stocks do not move as fast as in the bigger towns or cities. So, sometimes, you can be lucky and get that old town you missed years ago.

(L-R) Funny water pistol, the almost original cap gun and a Digimon knockoff

I was interested in this shape. Never mind if the battery was dying and
most of the features do not work. Even the front connectors which lets
you connect to another Digi-mon device is just plastic. If I do have the
chance, I will gut it and put in LEDs. HA ha ha ha ha ha aha

This is how the cap gun looked like when I was young.

See the little metal flap in the middle? This is the one
which pushes the paper up, loading a new gunpowder
round. And I used to think that if I pulled the trigger
faster, flames/fireworks might shoot out of the barrel

Going home: Stopping by Teluk Intan

Before we go to Bidor for the famous duck noodles, we stopped by Teluk Intan (since it was on the way to Bidor from Sitiawan). And so, we went straight to the shop that sells Chee Cheong Fun. This was the shop that my wife used to go to whenever I wanted some. I was told there were three such shops in Teluk Intan. Once was somewhere in town, which I think was the one "Ho-chiak" TV program went and I tasted that one before, which was quite oily. The other was the "Sam Siew Yeh" which opened a shop (and thay had customer problems) and the third one was this. Just in 2003/4, before the new road was built, this shop has the most customers and in front of it, there was a Medan Selera too. But when the new road took most of the land, business really declined. You could say, by 80% as everyone went away.

I was interested in this shop because of the Chee Cheong Fun making machine which fascinated me long ago. This time, I used the advantage of placing the order for 15 packets to make them happy so that I could take some photos. The machine is largely a steamer with a conveyor belt running through it.

This is the CCF making machine. The trays are for the CCF liquid
which they will coat it with some oil, pour the CCF flour mixture
and also add some ingredients

This is what it looked like user the CCF machine, OK?

Once the steamers are ready, they young chap will flick the switch
which then activated the motor for the conveyor belt. He then takes
one of the tray and puts it into the machine in one end

When the steamed CCF comes out, it is quite solid and the other
buy then uses a scraper to make it into a roll where the lady then
uses a knife to cut it into pieces. This time, there were more "liew"
or ingredients for us. And the price is still RM2.40

The sideway trip at North

And after that, it was off to the customer who was located inside the Lumut Navy Base. Luckily for us, the stop by in Sitiawan wasn't taking too much time and we were able to make it before she leaves the office. Once done, it was time to go home...

By the time we came out, it was already quite dark.
Then we were stopped from going further because
the Navy guy told us that no cars or people were
allowed to moved until after the Sun has set. weird
But then, would you argue with a guy holding a Steyr?

As we were on the road without much food, it was time
to fill up. I just took a glass of Neslo because I was not
hungry after eating all those buns in the Highway. Luckily,
I had ebough cash with me as all the ATMs were full of
Govt servants as that day was payday, I think

But we did stop by to buy some foodstuff for the
Office to show how fun it was to go for outstation
service calls Ha ha ha I did notice a lot of flies
about and at first I thought this was cockles

But on closer look, it was La-la ( I dunno what you call it)

The trip up North

Once again, we're going up North. I must say it is a bit like a last minute trip because I was only informed the day before. Ph well, at least I do not have to drive since my Boss is going with me. I am still exhausted from Loctor's Wedding weekend. Not sure why, But I think its something to do with lack of sleep. Still, it was a nice trip up to Taiping. And luckily, the customer did not ask us to go up on Monday. It would not be funny because during the weekend, I was in Prai.

Throughout the whole journey, there were a lot of incidents from
accidents to Police/JPJ joint venture projects

And even the roadbuilders decided to join in as well since it was a nice day

But not everyone was working hard at their job

You asked me to come up all the way for this?!!

And by the time we finished, there was another call for us to drop by Sitiawan as the customer noticed that their guardhouse extension was not working.
