10 litres of water to produce 1 sheet of A4 paper

I was reading the online news this morning and the following advertisement caught my attention!

Check out the fact that we need 10 litres of water to produce 1 sheet of A4 paper!!! OMG! I wonder how many trees we killed and how much water we consumed/ wasted daily...

Lets put our hands together and be more environmental-friendly. Let see what we can do to reduce the usage of papers and save our earth.
  1. Think before you print
  2. Print on both side of paper
  3. Do not throw away your newspapers/ magazines, recycle them
  4. Submit income tax online - fast, easy, and you do not need to worry that your forms will be missing in transit through snail mail
  5. Bring your own eco-bags during your shopping trips - this will help in eliminating the usage of paper bags and plastic bags

I'm sure there are a lot more ways. No matter what, just do our best, k? =)

Congratulations on June & Alfred's Wedding!

This evening, I attended my neighbour, June's wedding at Federal Hotel. This is the second time I had dinner here. I remember the first time I came here was during the 'Malam Anugerah Cemerlang Pusat Tuisyen Martin' (An award presentation ceremony by my tuition centre). Mr Martin, the principle of the tuition school was very generous. He treated his students who scored well in UPSR/ PMR/ SPM every year. So, we were motivated to study harder in order to be invited to the ceremony. =p I wonder if he still treats his students now... Or probably they get to go to a better class hotel now... hehehe!

Anyway, the food for today's event was much better than the last time. Hahaha! There were prawns, fried fish, chicken, mushroom with brocolli, and etc.. Out of all the dishes, I love the fried rice with anchovies the most! Its kind of weird... I will usually skip the fried rice in every dinner I attend. However, for this round, the fried rice was GOOD!! I was so tempted to get myself the second bowl. But I think I was too full to eat another one... Hehehe!

Besides the food, we were entertained by a live band. This group of singers consists of 2 guys and a girl. They sang lots of English oldies, and even a few Mandarin and a Cantonese song. I love their singings in the beginning. They are good singers. However, I got bored towards the end of the event as I was hoping for some Black Eye Peas or Lady Gaga's songs... hhahhaah! I gotta feeling... Tonight's gonna be a good night...

When dessert (the last dish) was served, it was already 11pm... I was so sleepy and tired. And guess what? I was so clumsy! I spilled my bowl of dessert! =( It was... an accident... All the guests at my table were focusing on me, the clumsy me... I felt so embarrassed. *sniff sniff*

Lastly, I brought home the complimentary chocolates for my brothers...

Brand new tyres for my car

My car has finally installed with two brand new tyres...

About two weeks ago, AO spotted my bald and scratched front left tyre. OMG!! I didn't know my tyre was in bad condition before this! On the next day, I went to a tyre shop and consulted the mechanic. This uncle mechanic shook his head and scolded me for driving with the bad condition tyre. He told me that the tyre might just burst on the road if I drive too fast.

After he settled with his earlier customer, he carefully checked all my tyres. He asked when was my last time changing the tyres... Emm... So far, I changed only 1 tyre which was punctured a few years back. Other than that, the rest of the tyres were already 6 years old. He nagged me a little... I was adviced to purchase at least 2 more new tyres for replacement. However, he didn't have stock for my model. So, he took out my spare tyre and changed the spoiled tyre. Then, I will need to come back again when the new tyres arrived.

When I told my colleagues about this incident, they were laughing at me! TY said 'You mean 6 years? Hahaha! Even those new tyres on the rack also expired already!' *Blush* Yea... I know nuts when it comes to car maintenance stuff. Now I know, I am supposed to rotate my car tyres every 2 years or so, in order to drag the life span of the tyres. Besides, I should check my car and the conditions of tyres every so often... Yes, yes!! I remember now... =)

Finally, the tyres have arrived and I changed them today! Initially, I thought the process of changing tyre is very easy. Buy a new tyre, take out the old tyre and install the new tyre, right?... NO! In fact, they got to go through a lot of testing before installing the tyres. What I observed was, the mechanic put the tyres on 3 different machines to do some testing... I am not sure what sort of testing are those... But for sure, changing tyre is not as easy as what I thought. In the end, it costs me RM225 including some car alignment and etc.

Sadly, this workshop accept only cash... Issh! I gave him all the cash in my purse already. Yea... I'm officially broke! =(

Everyday is sPeciaL!!

I got this cute table calendar from my secret santa, Alice. I like it as there is a nice quote every month. For January, its "Everyday is as special as you make it... make it great!". So, this becomes one of my new year resolutions. =) Yes! I'm trying to make everyday a special day. Perhaps I can make yours as special too!

Okay, I'm asking myself. 'What's so special about today?' Well, I was approached by one of my managers to apply for transfer to her department. Hahaha! This situation is rarely happen. However, this has proven that I still have some market/ value in the company. =p This is kind of a good news to me.

New year countdown celebration @ Mutiara Damansara

I had a great new year celebration this year! I went to Mutiara Damansara a.k.a. The Curve/ Ikea/ Cineleisure for 2009 countdown! In order to avoid the massive traffic jam, we reached The Curve at about 7pm for dinner.

After the awesome 'TGIF New Year dinner' (there was a special new year menu), we walked around while waiting for the countdown. We dropped by some shops and did some window shopping. Our last stop was Ikea. We hung out in the stall and got amazed with the house decorations until their annoucement went... "Dear customers, we will be closing in 30 minutes time... bla bla bla... Thank you for shopping with us." Okay... Its time for us to move out from Ikea.

We were quite lucky to spot some vacant benches in the mall. Hence we waited at the benches until 11.30pm. 30 minutes before midnight, its time to find a nice spot and enjoy the fireworks later! We found a so called nice spot, listened to Jacklyn Victor's live performances and saw others spraying their bubble. Check out this picture...

There were some poor guys got sprayed by a gang of people. Probably they were strangers to each other. However, they seems like enjoyed being sprayed. Haha!! I was keeping a distance with those people who were holding the sprays. I didn't want to get wet later... =p

Its 11.59pm!! Time to countdown!!! 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1!!!!!!! HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!!!

I experienced the first new year countdown celebration with fireworks!! I wanted to snap some better pictures. However, I was standing right in front of some flag poles and snapping with my 3.2 megapixels camera phone. So, the picture turned out to be like that. I cant even remember if there were flash... Hahaha! Anyway, the real fireworks were 10 times nicer!!! I love it!!! I hope to see more fireworks! They are pretty! Beautiful!!
