Keep The Cost Of Your Car Cheap And Cheerful

There are plenty of expenses that we will have to fit into our budget, both annually and monthly. Whether that’s the cost of upkeep for the home or even insuring all our possessions. These costs add up and take a massive percentage of our annual income. One of the biggest expenses is easily our car. Our car can end up costing an absolute fortune if we’re not careful. There are easy ways to avoid that though and cheapen the deal on the cost of your car.


Keep A Check On Insurance




If you’re interested in reducing the price of your insurance, there are a couple of things you can do. Most insurance companies now include the option of adding a black box to your car. This black box measures how you drive and decides whether you are a safe driver. If you are, your insurance premium will typically be lower. If not, it won’t go higher, but you will certainly not get the best deal. Another possibility is to price check your insurance when your current policy runs out. You might find that you can get a cheaper deal on the market, now that you have had some experience on the road. Building up a no claims could result in lower insurance premiums from some businesses.


Stay On The Right Side Of The Law




Most of the laws on the road aren’t your typical crimes. If you break road laws, you’re more likely to be looking at a fine rather than a prison sentence. That might sound like good news, but it isn’t. Those fines can be incredibly expensive, to the point where they are difficult to manage. For instance, you can be forced to pay a penalty of five thousand for one case of DWI. Scheiner Law pride themselves are getting those fines reduced, but they can still be expensive. That’s not even thinking about what speeding tickets could ultimately cost you after they build up. As you can see then financially, it’s in your best interest to drive safely. We haven’t even considered the cost of repairing your vehicle after a crash. Make no mistake, though; it’s an expense you’ll want to avoid.


Fuel Up When It’s Cheap




Fuel prices rise and drop throughout the year. You’ll also find that different stations have varied rates on fuel. Is it worth traveling to a different fuel station to get a lower price? Probably not because you’ll spend the money you save driving there. However, it is worth waiting to refuel until prices drop if you can. If you don’t need to refuel your car, waiting could save you a lot of money through the year. Money that you will then be able to spend elsewhere.


Buy Secondhand


Lastly, you should never buy a new car. It seems like peculiar advice. However, it makes a lot of sense because cars depreciate fast. A second-hand car has already lost most of its value. So, if it does depreciate you’ll be losing less money.

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL... 
Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch here in …

Getaway Weekday Trip To Cameron Highlands

UPHILL....

It has been two years since I last made an overnight trip to Cameron Highlands.  It was an impromptu trip, we only talked about it a couple of nights and the next day, all was arranged and done.  My friend rented the apartment from her niece, for two nights, we got a good deal, each of us only paid RM50 for a two nights stay.  Of course, it was an off peak season, otherwise we could not get the good deal offer.  LOL.... My friends planned everything from A to Z, they even went marketing to buy all the food stuff needed, pre-cooked some to take up for our steamboat dinner in the evening.  The weather was very cooling and nice, we had to wear our jackets especially in the evenings and mornings. 

Started off our journey by eating something light from Ipoh cos we have planned to take something good for lunch in Tringkap.  On the way, we stopped at a place called Green View Garden for some desserts before proceeding for our lunch.  Hmmmm... desserts before main meal?
Our fir…

Gathering At Top Grade Hot Soup, Ipoh

HOT SOUP ON RAINY DAYS... Yes, nowadays it pours, almost every day and in the late afternoon.  So cooling that I do not need to switch on the air con these days.  For cooling days, it is best to drink hot soup but do not land into one, okay?  LOL.. 
A few of my classmates planned an evening out at Top Grade restaurant at Festival Walk area.  I did not know that Ipoh has a branch, my first time was taken in Penang.  The boss told us that they have a branch in Ipoh, that sounds great!  I like their soup cooked with coconut water, the sweet taste is there... but funny, I don't know it is me or the soup, I still find the one I ordered in Penang is much nicer than this Ipoh branch.  I tried two times in Ipoh, my verdict?  The soup is still better in Penang.. okay, Penang wins!  The coconut soup base looks like this.....  Consisting of chicken, pig stomach, chestnuts, corn, red dates...  It cost RM58 since I am a member.. otherwise it is RM78... Others are add-ons...  And the soup gang…
