Knowing How To Drive With Efficiency In Mind

One of your main expenses as a driver is the fuel. That much goes without saying. Unfortunately, fuel is often expensive, and there is very little that you or I can do about that. Nonetheless, there are steps you can take to keep your fuel use down. Mostly, this is a matter of learning to drive efficiently. Driving with efficiency in mind is actually pretty simple once you know how. The quickest ways to waste fuel is to speed needlessly, rapidly accelerate and brake again and again. Avoiding these will make a huge difference alone. Also, cruising at around 50mph is ideal if you are looking to save pennies on that fuel.


Basic Maintenance

There is nothing worse than having to take your car to the garage. However, it is not just about keeping your car from being seriously damaged. Keeping up the basic maintenance on your vehicle also helps to keep fuel consumption down. Make sure you keep your engine oil topped up, as this can make a huge difference here. It is also a good idea to keep an eye on your tyre pressures, as if they are low you can end up using more fuel. Also, treat your car to a service every now and then. Spending money on a service will actually save you money in the long run.

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL... 

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte
