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...

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

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

Now I understand the word of Full Commitment when it comes to taking care of baby... seriously, I have to be fully commited and occupied by this little cheeky fella who is now going to be his 10th month soon.  Wow... time flies, when I first came, he was just slightly over four months... that being said, it is soon time fo rme to pack my bags and leave.  LOL... My 6 months being a babysitter is soon over... and did I say I can hardly wait?  NO, NO... I love my job here and I am going to miss my baby tremendously!  I only don't miss his cries!  LOL...  OK, by the time I write this post, Chinese New Year is over, it is now the 4th day of CNY.  Two days before the Lunar New Year, my daughter-in-law and I cooperated fully and baked a few types of cookies.  Looking back at these pictures, I dare say that we did a good job... not on the cookies but at least we had a great time bond
