It's not easy to save money , and I do not think many people will disagree with me on that statement. I've set a target (logical target actually) to extremely save my money starting from this year. Alhamdulillah with some salary increment I can now boost up the monthly saving figures.
With the extreme saving plus bonuses (insya-allah) and few others extra I'm targetting to achieve my mini M in 5 years time. I can do it .....do it I can.

Game 4 will be tomorrow and another win would seal the series. If Celtics were beaten the game will go back to Boston plus the home court advantage. I'm predicting Boston to win 4-3 and will then go to the NBA final for the first time after Larry Bird era to meet with Lakers (my other prediction)
RIZAL (I'm not from Boston)
My proposal has been accepted together with the application. I'll have to wait for another 2-3 month for the final say from UUM. So after a year break from being a student (post grad student = old people in the campus ...) I'm continuing my journey again.
Why UUM ? First it's my alma mater. Second, probably I've started with UUM and I want to end my academia journey with the same University and third, this will give me more trip going back to UUM for academic discussion with the supervisors.
It will not be a straight forward journey, the road will be bumpy here and there and hopefully in the end (4-5 years from now) I'll succeed.

I was a bit semi-frustrated with another article about Plaza Rakyat in the newspaper today not because the ever famous question...."BILA NAK SIAP NI ????" or in English to be completed soon..very soon (and 10 years has gone ). But my frustration is more to the people who supposed to take responsibility for the future of Plaza Rakyat (if there's any !!!).
The chain reaction created by the in completion of Plaza Rakyat has varied from the massive traffic jam surrounding Pudu Raya area to the confused tourist trying to figure out whether they are in KL or Mumbai (there surrounding do create that feel of MUMBAISM....).
So if after 10 years nobody cares about Plaza Rakyat ...lets change the name to TUGU PLAZA RAKYAT.....at least it sounds better and it can be added in the tourism brochure.

2) What to do ...here and there ..today and tomorrow ...disaster is everywhere ...it's worrying me (and I guess..I'm not alone)
3) What to do ...here and there ..today and tomorrow ... people pretend it's OK (1 & 2)
...i'm OK with that (and I guess..I'm not alone)
Was introduced by a friend of my wife about 3 years back. And we keep on coming to this CKT stall ever since. I've attached a map (not sure if its help) that will lead you to the establishment. It's just opposite the pasar besar area.
The operations start at 7 pm onwards everyday except Monday (not sure why ...). The "biasa" set will cost you RM 3.50 and you've to add another RM 1 to go for the special one. I'll post the photo affidavit later. So if you happen to be a foodie lover especially Char Kuey Teow ...CKT Kelang is the one for you.

I've always made it compulsory to stop at this car wash center near Lunas, Kulim before I reach my 'kampung'. Why ? First, it's a good impression (especially to Mak and Abah) when my Naza is clean (it's not always like that ....). Second, my kids (Imi and Widad) love being in a car that's washed by a gigantic cleaning machine. To them it's like asking Ultraman Daya or Tiga or Taro to wash the car. Can't wait to have another go the next time we're back in Kulim.
To finish the season at second spot to me is a commanding performance as a whole and with the champions league final coming soon (yes..with Man U ...AGAINNNNN), I still believe that the BLUES will not be finishing the season empty handed.

I bought this book at another warehouse sale by MPH last month pricing at RM 8.00. What a catch !!!. It's a story perfectly written by Jim Clark the co-founder of NetScape together with Marc Andreesen.
It's a coincidence really when Jim Clark before that was also the founder of Silicon Graphic (lots of reference pointing back at Silicon Graphic in this book) at the last day of his tenure in SGI was introduced to Mosaic , one of the first browser developed by Marc Andreesen (while studying at Uni of Illinois)
Team up with Marc and almost everybody in the previous Mosaic development team to formed NetScape Communications a company with an objective to developed a revolutionary browser code name 'MOSAIC KILLER' IN April 4 , 1994
The new browser will boost up the speed of the previous Mosaic up to 10 times !!!! (14.4 Kbps ....but of course it's 14 years ago my friend ) . Also story on NetScape court battle with the University of Illinois to get the rights in using Mosaic as the name of their browser. At the end NetScape decided to use NetScape (which i think was a brilliant move).
IPO launching of NetScape create one of the largest increment of share percentage in the history where it opens at USD 71 per share an increment of almost 400%.
Another interesting fact is the working culture in NetScape where office hour normally start late in the day because to most of their programmer "A lot of interesting stuff happens after 8 pm"
Highly recommended especially those who wanted to know more about NetScape.

Bought this masterpiece at PayLess Warehouse Sale few weeks back. Rev Jesse Jackson is probably one of the most influenced african-american who contested the presidency election (democrat) in 1984 and 1988. Although he lost the battle (he's african-american anyway ...) what interest me is the motivation and willingness to fight as a minority.
Am not surprised if Obama is also looking at this guy as a motivational figure since he's also in the same situation at the moment.
p/s : Do you think he can win ???? Maybe ...or ....
I went to Cameron Highland with my dearest last year. There's a small coffee shop near to the bus station that sell one of the best cheese cake I've ever had (period !!!) . Not even Secret Recipe's Marble Cheese cake could match its heavenly taste (and yes with strawberry topping) ...YUMMMMMYYYYYYYY
The name @JALAN_REBUNG is actually taken from my humble "kampung" house located in a quiet little place in MERU,KLANG. I hope to appreciate my humble blog as much as I appreciate my humble "kampung" house.
Looking forward to ignite @JALAN_REBUNG.
1) PayLess Warehouse Sale in Subang Jaya (bought 80 books !!!!)
2) MPH Warehouse Sale (bought quality 10 books ..)
Sounds crazy but ..do forgive me since I'm in the process of establishing my own mini library, although am not sure if I'll be reading all the books (some would probably stay as a display ...hehehe)
Comparing the 2 warehouse sale , MPH offer a recent title compare to PayLess but pricing (at MPH sale) can be very pricey ....(30% for books ranging from RM70 upwards). At the end of the day I manage to collect nearly 100 titles of books and for me that a very good start for the establishment of @JALAN-REBUNG mini library.
This will be my first attempt to have my own blog. I'll try my very best to ensure that the level of activeness will be acceptable (at least to a minimum standard). Nothing significant with today's date , it is just my attempt to finally create my own blog site. Hopefully it will be a medium to share and express my personal opinion towards certain things.
WELCOME TO @JALAN_REBUNG
