KB Mall, Shopping, Double Chicken Prosperity and Stuff

doubleprosperity

Isn’t Double Chicken Prosperity just awesome? Yum~

Part 1: It’s been a while since I last went shopping. The rain kept me at home for weeks. I went to KB Mall with my parents this evening, thinking that there wouldn’t be so many people. We were wrong. Even finding a parking space is a trying affair. How could it slipped off my mind that Chinese New Year is approaching? Hmm… I bought 3 jeans and 2 tops for a good deal. I so love discounts :3 That’s RM235 down. And then we went to McDonalds.

Part 2: My craving for Double Chicken Prosperity has been satiated! I don’t mind coughing out RM14 for the awesome thing at all! And before you complain anything about boycotting or whatever, please do refer to this entry that I wrote a couple of days ago. While I was waiting for my order (DCP and two fillet-o-fish for my parents), the staff kindly asked me to wait for my meal on the left side of the counter. A dumb bitch standing behind me suddenly went “Hey, cutting line aa?”. I bit my lips from calling her ‘blind and stupid’ and simply said “Excuse me, I’m waiting for my meal that I’ve already paid for” in heavy British English accent. My orders arrived just after I said that. I took my tray, glared at her for a few seconds and enjoyed seeing her flustered self. Serves that bitch right.

Part 3: After a month of thinking of buying a new external HDD, I finally succumbed to a 320GB Hitachi, which cost me a mere RM268. Maybe it’s a lot cheaper in KL, I don’t know. This is the cheapest for 320GB that I could find in Kelantan. The same hdd sells for a whooping $310 in New Zealand. Technically, I’ve saved a lot (lol, I remember buying the old 80GB WD for more than RM200. Moore’s law is totally correct after all, except 80GB is still selling at over RM100.

Part 4: I actually wanted to print some photos, but guess what? I couldn’t find a print shop in KB Mall. I was sure I saw one last time I went, so I was very confused when I saw none. I guess I’ll just go the usual print shop at Tesco.

Stuff: One a different matter altogether, I’m kind of done with MySQL. My Garden of Lies project is going to use XHTML + CSS layout with either Greymatter of CuteNews – OLD SCHOOL STYLE, YEAH! It’s been too long since I last used any of them and I thought “Wth, it’s going to save me from all those SQL calls”. I’ll just take care to keep hackers out.

p.s/ I still want a Nintendo DSi!

Of License, Banking & Shopping

Lots of things happened today – both good and bad, but not really bad. I’m trying to get back to the way I write blogs in the good old days – by sections. My friends once told me they like that style of mine, so I’m trying to start it again.

The Trouble With Renewing Driving License
My driving license expired on December 27, so I thought it would be good to go and renew it today. Papa suggested I renew it for two years to make things easier, and I chose to follow his plan. The three of us (Papa, Mama and yours truly) headed for JPJ HQ to renew my license, but unfortunately, the counters won’t be open until 2.45pm (it was 12.25pm when we arrived). Break from 12.25pm to 2.45pm? That’s quite long a period. I was like ‘what the heck’ and we decided to go somewhere else first before coming back to the HQ. Just outside the building, we met my driving instructor. He said that even if we wait, I wouldn’t be able to renew my license anyway. The server is temporarily down, and whatever devices the have in the building were currently out of service. %*##$#*@?? I was fortunate, though, my instructor offered to renew my license because he’ll be coming back to the HQ a few more times this week. I’ll just have to go and collect my license from him when it’s done. Thank God! That’s one problem down.

The Trouble With Registering For Public Bank Online Banking
Unlike other cards (at other banks), registering for PB Online Banking required me going to the customer service representative, filling out a registration form, and waiting for a loooong time. No, it didn’t take more than 5 minutes to get the ID and password to access their online banking facilities. It’s just that more people keep coming to the CS table even though it’s occupied (by me!), and the rep finished theirs first because theirs were more complicated and involved a lot more pen-slashing and signing. Um, next time, how about doing the fastest and easiest and definitely less complicated first? Move from basic to complicated, you know, like David Ausubel’s receptive learning theory… I wasted more than 40 minutes when it shouldn’t be more than 10 minutes, 15 minutes maximum if you count the time I spent reading the terms of use and filling out the simple form. And the ID and password can only be used after 24 hours. Great, more waiting.

Shopping at KB Mall

My New Jacket!

Alas, the best event of my day. Spent around RM350 for a Voir/VJ Jeans jacket with faux fur neckline, a knee-length Institute skirt, a cute yellow Institute long-sleeved t-shirt, and a white Nicole blouse with black vertical stripes. Cheap huh? Of course, the Institute skirt and t-shirt went on an 80% discount and the Nicole blouse got 50% discount. Only 10% discount on the jacket, though, because it’s one of the ‘New Arrival’ items… Click the images for full view.
