Reduce Income Tax

A couple of ideas:
1. buy medical insurance or term insurance with critical illness. 60% of the premium paid entitles you to tax relief. Max relief is RM3,000. Why not pay some money upfront and get better insurance converage.

2. for the folks who contribute to their religion society, spend RM1,000 on religious books. Then give these books to the poorer family who can't afford them. In a way, you contribute to your religious society/church and also help spread the gospels to the poorer folks who want to read but can't afford.

Income Tax

I filed my income tax online. This year, I have to pay inland revenue dept RM1,900 in tax even after all the huge deduction they took from my monthly salary!

RM1,900 can buy a refrigerator!

Niamah!

Does this look too cheap?

I wanna get a low end but comfortable sofa.
I thought this one in IKEA looks decent.. Question is, does it look too cheap?

Spiderman 3

Check out this 7.5 minute, never before seen preview of Spidey 3! Thanks, ZipD.

Note, for those who is not familiar with the black costume of Spiderman in the movie, I suggest that you read about it here to get some background. It will improve your movie experience a lot more :)

The Fly Part 3

I talked abt Mr Fly a while ago. Click on his name to read about it.

I really don't know how to describe this guy. He just like to imitate what I do. I mean, it is flattering that he's following the games I play, the notebook I use, the place I stay but sometimes he does it to the extreme it is beyond comprehension.

He learned about me playing World of Warcraft (WoW) months after I played the game. I was level 35 when he decided to follow the MBS friends' footsteps of playing in WoW. That's fine by me, the more the merrier, right? He was diligent with playing WoW.. levelling up all by himself. He turned away any help that we wanted to render - just soloing for what it's worth. WOW is not a a game to play solo. It is a massive multi player online game!

He's now level 35 I believe. I am 49. I didn't have much time to play due to work and life. I decided to stop the game. I cancelled my subscription and emailed all my friends that I am cancelling. Next thing I kn…

He's here, the Phantom of the Opera!

Came back from Phantom last weekend. Phantom of the Opera was excellent. I am glad I went to see it again.

Even though I know the story, it was refreshing to see the play at a different angle. I first saw Phantom in 2002 in West End. At that time I had a very good seat in the front. I remember it was perhaps 5th or 6th row from the stage. At that time, I didn't know what to expect so it was wow-factor though I was lost in some of the scenes - thick British accent, you see.

This time, having seen the movie version (and DVD) several times, I was very familiar with the scenes and all the songs. I know what to expect. Yet, it was still refreshing to see how the scenes turned out. I was able to appreciate all the little details even more. I think I'll not get bored of Phantom :P

We were very lucky. The seats I chose turned out to be a box-side seats. You know how those special "balcony" at the side of the theater? The one where Richard Gere and Julia Roberts saw the Italian …
