Mosin

Yesterday I met up with Kimmikanuyi, Monica and Anti-Ringgit in Mosin Restaurant. I don't believe we have gathered like this for a long, long time. Of course I was grilled by Monica about Anne. Of course she's happy for me and will help me pick up a birthday gift for her. Trust Monica to be so helpful. I am sure she will have a good eye for a good gift.

Now, I really do not know what to get for Anne. Is it too early to get an expensive gift? Monica said that will scare her away. She suggested bouquet of flowers which may be nice and all but it has no memories... you know, once the flowers withered and dried. I wanted to get her something special. After all, it is her first birthday with me.

Ideas?

  1. Love should remain in the heart and not by giving objects. Imagine if you are poor and can't afford present, what will you give? A good memory is all you need.

    For me, first candle light dinner is good enough, even mamak as long as it's a romantic ambience and unforgetable!

  2. Dude, send flowers to Annie is a strategy - first of all, most women naturally like flowers, those strongly say tak suka also - I tell u, deep in their hearts - they definitely value the FIRST bonquet of flowers sent by their sweethearts one, the feeling of receiving flowers is very sweet punya lah, sure smiley face (though we know it is not practical - tak last long), but u see, we, ladies can turn it into dried flowers (then can keep long long liow loh) ....Secondly, it is a signal to all her 'admirers' in her office - that she is attached liow, indirectly chase away all her 'mosquitos' mah. Flowers aje tak cukup wor, think harder on the 'gift' lah :P :P

  5. I am still poor lar. If I buy a watch and then later a nice candlelight dinner, I think I can't afford flowers anymore lar. I'm sure Anne understands :D As for the mosquitoes, these bugs can still be chased away when they see her new watch and enquire :D

One million daimoku

In April 2008, Anne and I started our resolution to chant 1 million daimoku in one year. It's already Jan - and I am only one-third of the way. I really need to WORK HARDER - coz I made another 1 million resolution from Jan - Dec 2009.

The chart you see on the right of this post is a chart that we put beside our butsudan. It tracked our chanting progress. Every 20 minute, we coloured one box. Mine is the one on top, Anne's at the bottom - you can see that she made much better progress than me! Hmmm.. come to think of it, I am not even at one third!!

Edit 22 March 2009: Thanks to Google, a couple of friends in faith found this post and they want to know how many hours of chanting is required to achieve one million diamoku. Here it is. Based on our publication in Malaysia, 20 minutes of chanting is equivalent to 1,000 daimoku. So, one hour is 3,000 daimoku. 1 million would take about 333 hours.

LG UltraWide Monitor 38WK95C Review

I bought this today. It was not an impulse buy. I spent months researching and then two months of waiting for stock from LG Malaysia.


Trust me, it is not easy to buy a modern monitor these days.

I have a few criteria:
ultra wide screen regardless of size - can be 32" or 34" or even 34"it must be IPS screen, not TN or whatever the other one is calledit must have USB-C to charge the MacBook Pro and also to extend the display of the MacBookit must have good speakers. Not the puny ones that some Dell monitor shipped with. Really good ones. I hate having to plug in the speaker jack from PC to monitorit should have G-Sync supportbonus - it has nice legs that doesn't take up space I have searched high and low. I looked for Asus, I looked at Dell and Alienware.. none of them ticked these checkboxes, particularly that USB-C one..

I realize that I really wanted the USB-C and good speakers. I don't really care about G-Sync because even though I still play games, I spen…

2017 Honda CRV in Malaysia! An owner's review

After years of driving an old car, I finally decide to change. And having a small family, I was eyeing a SUV. Last year, we were considering a Mazda CX5 because of its exterior look but after inspecting it in a showroom and then sitting on a Honda CRV, we have no doubt that Honda was the choice to go. Our decision was simply based on how spacious the interior cabin of the CRV is compared to the CX5.



And so, we have to decide whether to get one early this year or wait for the new CRV which was supposed to launch in May 2017 (well, that was before Honda Malaysia decided to delay the launch date after Raya). What made me wait for the new model was that the sales agent told me that the new CRV will have a new engine and Apple CarPlay! Being an Apple fan, as you can tell from this blog, I definitely wanted CarPlay. We dropped a deposit with the showroom sales agent in April.

I waited patiently and when Honda finally launched the car on 12 July, the wife and I went to the showroom for a lo…
