20” Crossmac 8 speed foldable bicycle

A couple of weeks ago, I purchased a foldable bicycle for the girls. My brother in law bought one from Shoppee and his bike was shipped from China. I'm not a bike enthusiast like him and so, I prefer to see the bike first before I buy and I'd like to be able to send it to a shop for service or repairs if there's a need to, and so, I went to this shop called Bike Elemenz in Desa Kompleks in Kepong.  The owner, a nice gentleman by the name Gavin, was there and he let us try a few models and convinced me why the bike that he's selling, a brand called Crossmac, is better that those that come from China. The secret, he said, is in the joints when you fold a bicycle. The joint must be made of good quality material so as not to fall apart from frequent use. Actually, I don't have much opinion about this bicycle as it is just a bicycle, after all, and I'm too tall and heavy to enjoy it. But, it's a perfect fit for my wife and the two girls. We adjusted the height of

Professor is now in Centrepoint

If you have kids and you are looking for really comfortable school uniform, I'd highly recommend clothes from Professor. These clothes don't come cheap but they are made of really good material. My eldest has sensitive skin and we tried many different type of school shirts and they always give her rashes. Until we got her shirts from Professor. Professor has a shop in SS2, at the same row as Babyland and that place do not have parking. It's inconvenient to buy from SS2. I'm glad that they are opening a branch in Centrepoint. The shop is in the same row as Jaya Grocer in G floor, beside a Traditional Chinese Medicine shop

Covid - to send or not to send the kids to school?

This is a dilemma in every Malaysian parents' minds today. We are at the cusps of MCO 3.0 with daily cases above 2700. Some schools in PJ were closed. Some were reopened after closing for a couple of weeks. My daughters’ school, SKTM, is still opened but many parents are not sending their kids to school.  Last week, my nephew’s form teacher was tested positive. Nephew and family were considered Category B, meaning they have to self-quarantine and wait for KKM instructions to go for the Covid test. We had close contact with the nephew and as such, we are considered Category C. If nephew is tested positive (as of this writing, he’s not showing symptoms and KKM scheduled a test on Day 10), then we will become Cat B. Therefore, we chose to self-quarantine for 10 days and so, the girls did not go to school.  To be honest, I'm disappointed as I have also heard of friends who were Cat C who still went out. It made our self-quarantine pointless. I wish there are clearer guidelines from

Keychron K4V2 Review

Recently I bought a Keychron K4V2 mechanical keyboard . This one came with Gateron Browns, a hotswappable RGB board and a aluminum body. The reasons I bought this keyboard, despite having quite a number of keyboards are: 1. This is a wireless keyboard which could connect to 3 devices. I hate cables and so, having a wireless keyboard made my desk cable and clutter free. Once you start using a wireless keyboard, wired feel so inconvenient. By pressing Fn-1, I connect to my Windows PC. Fn-2 will instantly switched to my MacBook and Fn-3 to the iPad. The switch is almost instant, maybe a couple of seconds delay to connect to the PC, but, it feels so good that it’s like having a KVM (keyboard, video, mouse) device at home.  2. Numpad in a TKL size. As I used my PC a lot more to do  work these past months, I find that the Numpad is invaluable for when I’m doing Excel or quick calculation. The problem with full-size keyboards are that they are too wide. The Keychron K4V2 though, crammed
