Annual Fee Free

Am chewing on some seaweed while typing this. How should I start…

The night before I was checking my credit card outstanding payment when a RM90 charge glared back at me. What is this Annual Membership Fee doing in my account statement? The guy I spoke to last time agreed to waive it for 2 years. And this is only the second year. I am pissed. I hate calling up to argue about all these… the hassle and the constant frowning.

But guess what, when I called I was greeted quite warmly and I just mentioned it’s regarding my annual membership issue. The guy on the phone, S (forgot his name) said ok and proceeded with verification details first. When that was done, he just said he will cancel out the charges and all I have to do was to swipe the card for 12 times in a year. I haven’t even said a word yet. My mind went… mmm good good. He then said I qualified for some loan thing which I declined nicely and I even asked him to redirect a card that never seem to reach me. Overall, the service rendered was satisfactory by me. And my statement now says Annual Membership Fee Reversal. Done.

Oh and by the way, my gum does not hurt that bad anymore. Had no problem chewing on some hard rice for dinner yesterday. Hehe. Home cooked rice is nice. Shall we do it more often? *wink*

Cold outside, heaty inside

My lips are cracking a little. I’ve ulcer on my tongue. Sore throat and my gum hurts… badly. The swollen irritated gum is the worst. Literally forced me to make tuna sandwich, papaya and watermelon my lunch. Chewing is hard… have to move the food to the left because the bits that get into the gaps uncomfortable and its hell trying to get it out again. Damn… It’s more like bite bite swallow bite bite swallow.

Will try to down a glass of bitter herbal tea tonight in hope that it will ease my suffering. And teo chew porridge for dinner. Yes… at least something to look forward too. I think I could manage my intake of 3 bowls of porridge today. Yum. Thinking about it makes me hungry.

Hope the pain goes away tomorrow. Shoo…

D’oh!

The dysfunctional family is here… in a matter of hours. Its going to be screened in Malaysia on the 26th of July, a day ahead of US and A. Many are said to be awaiting its arrival patiently. Although some “overly passionate fans” forcefully invited Homer into their house, which caused quite a stir nationwide.

 

There is a better way to be a part of the family and you can do this at www.simpsonsmovie.com
Tonnes of stuff lying around. Games… And its fully animated… D’oh! You can try creating your own Simpson’s avatar. The one looking out of place is me. Have a go and create one if you have time. :)

 

While I was reading up on some early beginnings of The Simpsons at Wikipedia, I found this. Their first appearance on Tracey Ullman Show. Wow.

 

So are you going to be the first few to catch it in the movies?

Rise of the G7

It has been many years since I got hold of a camera and snap away. Come to think of it, I have never really snapped away as much as I wanted to. During my third semester of my studies, my Photography lessons earned me a D+. Which is bad. Most of the time I have to drag myself to accomplish this feat. There were several reasons for my achievement.
1. I feel weird performing contortions in public all in the name of getting a good shot.
2. Developing films were expensive.
3. My lack of confidence of getting a good shot does not help.
4. Never really understood the meaning and functions of aperture, focal point, shutter speed and stuff.
5. It did not intrigues me, was doing it for the sake of getting it done. Assignments.

Alas, something took me over and I recently purchased a brand new digital camera. A Canon G7. It’s fun taking photos now. Having a favourite subject matter helps a lot. Am still in the midst of learning how to use it. My previous blog was filled with letters… hopefully now I could save on a few hundred thousand words or more. Yeah baby!

The Tool.

The first assignment was taking photos in Cameron Highlands. Will compile a few photos to be posted.
Will also show you what I have learned about this camera too. Yes, I am noob when it comes to this.
As a matter a fact, a lot of things. Hmm.

Come 20th May I will be spending the day at Summit USJ because there is a climbing competition. Top climbers will be there so it would be worthwhile to be present. Be awed.

I am participating. Been in last year. Might as well do it again. Just for fun sake. I get a free tshirt for the RM30. And some freebies. Its not that bad for a session of ass kicking.
