Insurance

I'm glad I bought insurance policies as one of it helped me pay for my medical bills when I discovered I have a lump near my 'ahem' area last month. Hubby was complaining a while back that I have too many policies but I defended that they are useful.

Besides a life insurance policy I bought a term insurance policy too as a way of saving. It is for a period of 25 years and after which I can have a sum of money where I can withdraw when it matures. I have paid for a bout 15 years now so I'm left with another 10 years to go!

It will be good as I can use it for my boy's school/uni fees when the mature date comes...

Pearls for Mother's Day

Every year without fail I will try to get my mom a little gift for Mother's day. My mom has always like jewelries but with me not working full time now, I can't really buy expensive gifts. I used to get her jewelry items like diamonds and jade as these are some of her favorite.

Therefore, this year I decided to get her a pair of freshwater pearls earrings. I saw a pair which was really nice and will fit my mom perfectly so I went for it. It was not too costly as other precious stones or gems. Being a fan of pearls, I think I got my mom a really nice gift!

Should I get one too?

I've just started my little home business selling cupcakes and was wondering if I should get myself a checking account for the whole purpose. By having one, it will enables me to pay my suppliers using checking facilities and i do not have to pay with hard cash.

In fact I already have a registered company legally so it will not be a problem for me to get a checking account from banks around here. Since a few of my relatives are in the banking industry, I don't have to worry much if the banks required an introducer to open an account.

Will see how things goes... when my business grows, I guess I just have to have one!

Going to New York CitY

I was supposed to follow my mother in law to New York last year but after considering having a toddler tagging along I decided to abandon the idea. It's not easy since hubby will not be following.

My mother in law has been there a few times and since some of her siblings are living there she just go and visit them as well as going to some nearby attractions for a short vacations. If I'm not mistaken she joined a New York City travel agent and went on trips to Chicago and some parts of Canada.

How I wish I can have that opportunity someday.... I would love to see Statue of Liberty, Empire State Building and visit Wall Street as well as Ground Zero!

A relaxing evening

This evening we paid the beach a visit since we have not been going there for a long time. The weather was pretty good... cloudy for most part of the afternoon. However, when we arrived at the beach, the clouds were all gone! So, it was rather hot! Luckily we managed to find a good shaded area and spent an hour there.

Then we went to a relative's house for dinner. They are staying in an apartment so there isn't any chance to enjoy the evening breeze. How nice if they are staying on a landed property so that we can relax on the patio furniture while chatting and sipping fruit juices.

How to be clean?

With prices of most staple goods continue to rise like nobody business, more and more of the lower income group will suffer. In fact in the past weeks I have started to read about more snatch thieves cases which has simmer down a year ago. But I guess the bad economy are forcing many people out of their wits.

Many of these cases involved drug addicts. The can find enough money to sustain their addiction and at the end they have to rob people in order to get money. Though many are caught ans was sent for drug rehab but many do go back after a while as when they go and mix with their old bad company, they will be involve with drugs again. So, how can they be clean again if this continue?

Flowers for all occasions

With Mother's Day just around the corner, what is your plan? Since I can't be with my mom but I've got her a gift which I will bring it to her when I visit her next month as I don't think I can mail the gift to her.

Last time I used to send my mom flowers on Mother's Day. I will get my friend who lives a few doors away to buy the flowers and bring them to my mom on Mother's Day itself as I was working in another country then. It was a crazy thing to do but flowers always warms the heart of it receivers.

Well, if you have not get your mom any gifts yet, why not send her some lovely flowers? FiftyFlowers.com, a wedding flowers specialist cum wholesaler has a wide varieties of flowers arrangements for every occasions.

Let them battle it out

Sometimes competition is a good thing.... at least from the customers point of views. At least with competition we get better stuff at a cheaper price.

I'm sure most Malaysians are aware that both MAS and AirAsia is counter striking each other with low fares. I got email alerts every other day from AirAsia giving out the bestest deals. Well, will we fret? This is good in fact as we can travel at an even cheaper rate. Don't you think so?

With almost everything going up... I'm glad there is still something that is coming down. :P

File them up

Our digital camera has been with us for almost 4 years and we are glad it still works fine. I must admit that with it we managed to capture most of the beautiful memories we have had in the past 4 years.

Hubby has been very diligent in filing them up in our PC and categorized them too which make viewing them a pleasure. My little boy will always ask for his own photo and video slides to be played. For that hubby has been getting more hard disk with higher memory so we could store more of the photos and videos we took.
