Cheapskate Me...

Is recession really hitting us globally now?? For those of you who don't know me well, I never buy and hold newspaper for quite some time now.. Why? 1stly, I don't like to read the news written there ..2ndly, I have no time to read... 3rdly, the news are free online... thanks to some "outspoken" bloggers, they are really great... a lot of nationwide information are retrieved from their blogs... appreciate them a lot!

Call me cheapskate..... every cent counts now... u know why? Don't know whether to be amused or shocked when Ping Pong Piang offers "Cents" only for one opp. Why so Little? Then it hit me.... world economy has crashed and will still keep crashing...

Meanwhile, 50 or 60cents per opp... i still sart...sart.... I will accept them, with or without complaint...


  1. hehe...i like the "ping pong pia", so

  2. haha... agree..... 1 cent do really count the different.. sometimes..

    KL got free newspaper.. "THESUN" .. hehe

  3. you are so right every cent counts. one of the reason why newspaper company were cutting back because of the internet.

    oh yeah- about your question i paid my hosting almost $100 per year. take care.

  4. wow..that is a lot of money, carlotta.. ok.. i stick to the blogspot .. for now.

  5. i try to SAVE.... but it seems not easy.... :(

  6. You are right. Every cent counts. I am not willing to lower my standard of living yet. But I'll find some cheaper alternatives :D

  7. ping pong pia... hahahhaha.. sooo funny.. economy is bad.. that's why we have to help each other.. (got it? wink! wink!) if u dun get it.. email me at btw.. i've help u a bit today.. :)

  8. Happy Wednesday! Bloghoppin' here... Hey, I have an interesting tutorial for you that I have written myself. It is about adding Adsense on your Single Post in XML template. I hope you'll like it! God Bless you!

  9. well for those who have choices, they prob will snuff their noses at low paying ones. but i totally agree with you claire, every cents is money. if you have 50 cents a day, $15 a month can be a lot to some family.

  10. yes, Constance.. as long as i m making an effort to make the money, it is worth taking it .. it is not undertable money..haha...

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe

The Good, The Bad But Not Ugly

MISSING AND NOW BACK IN ACTION...  I checked back my last post and it was 8 March last month and today is 19 April, less than two months only.  So what has been happening in my life?  Lots and lots... good news, bad news, sad news... all concerning health and I guess this is our life cycle as we live day by day.   My health is also not that "fantastic" during the past few months, but mine is a small rock compared to giant boulder which my best buddy is undergoing... I guess some of you know what is happening to her from her blog posts.  I was totally devastated when this happened to her, my tears couldn't help falling and my heart goes out to her.  I am ashamed to say that instead of me giving the comfort that she needs, I am the one that have been receiving her strength in times like this.  She might be crushed physically but she is not broken in her spiritual mind and soul.  One word... "Unbreakable!"  She is a shining example..... "What can death do to m

Exploring The Sea Cruise Royal Caribbean

CRUISING ALONG.... Once we deposited our bags in our cabins, we had our buffet meal at the Hammerjack restaurant and exactly at 4pm, we heard a loud Horn signal...  ITS TIME TO SAIL ALONG THE PACIFIC OCEAN! And while the ship started to sail, we humans started to walk and explore.... to familarize ourselves inside the ship....  Elevators on each side of the ship....  Making my mark....  On another side....  We walked along to check out our food outlets... This Promenade Cafe  had became our regular joint .... We like to sit there enjoying our hot drinks and desserts... Free flow of food day and night.... Passing through the bars to the casino... The casino will open only when the ship is in international waters...  At one of the jackpot machines... I wonder if they are real?? But they are only $1 bundles... Then we went up to the highest floor.... The swimming deck.... Taken against the sun.... Nice sunset in the evening.... The Happy Trio!
