Essential Gadgets for Responsible Drivers

Being a responsible driver isn’t easy when the entire road is against you. Not only do many drivers seem to pay absolutely no attention to the road or other people, they also don’t seem to understand how to driver their vehicles properly. This is why a course in defensive driving is perhaps the most useful thing any responsible driver could invest in. However, even if you have the knowledge to drive safely and account for other people, that doesn’t mean you’re going to be able to avoid accidents.


If you truly want to be a responsible driver, you’re going to have to invest a little more money into your vehicle and here are just some of the essential gadgets.




Dashboard Camera
You’re going to have to record everything that happens if you want to make a good insurance claim should you end up in an accident that wasn’t your fault. Not only can it help you, but your dashboard camera can make a huge difference to other people’s insurance claims as well. For instance, if your dashboard camera catches drivers who are speeding or manages to record what really happened in an incident that wasn’t your fault, you could potentially help those drivers seek justice by giving them what was recorded on your dashboard camera.




Emergency Lights
One of the most important things to carry is a set of lights for emergency vehicles. For instance, you could be an emergency first responder and instead of driving past traffic and beeping at everyone who’s in your way, you should simply attach it to the top of your vehicle and signal to everyone that you’re an emergency vehicle that has to get somewhere as soon as possible. There are also other emergency lights. For example, you could have broken down in the middle of the road and you’re going to need some emergency strobe lights to indicate to oncoming drivers that you can’t move from your position. It’s also helpful for letting people know that you’ve broken down when it’s dark.




Car Maintenance Devices
If you want to keep your car in great shape, then you’d better carry some handy tech such as a tire pressure gauge and a vehicle diagnostics device. A digital tire pressure gauge will let you accurately examine the pressure inside of each tire. Tire pressure is something that every driver should be monitoring before they set off on the road because it can negatively affect the way your vehicle handles. Too much pressure and you lose traction and it can damage the tire. Too little pressure and your car will be unresponsive and could put your safety at risk.

A typical vehicle diagnosis device plugs into the OBD-II port of your vehicle. Where this is located depends on the make and model of your vehicle, so consult your manual if you plan to purchase one.  You can pair digital car maintenance devices with smartphones (most of the time) to receive detailed information about your car’s health. This information isn’t for beginners, so it’s recommended you have a bit of knowledge about how to diagnose problems in a vehicle and how to fix basic issues before investing in these.

An Evening Dinner At Chef Chew Kitchen, Petaling Jaya

BACK TO SG. BULOH for a couple of days.... Come evening, we went for dinner at Chef Chew Kitchen in Seksyen 19, Petaling Jaya.  Since it was my first time there, I did not know what to expect except to sit back, relax and eat.  LOL... It is a one shop lot restaurant so tables are very limited.  Reservation was made at 6pm to be on the safe side, to avoid crowds and waiting for food was very minimized at this time of the day.  For the seven of us, these dishes were served on the table... Thumbs up even before the dinner...  And soon these are served...  Claypot braised ribs...  Their signature dish... Fish Maw...  First time eating fish maw which is whitish in colour...  Black Beancurd with Pumpkin sauce... Hey, this restaurant indeed serves new to me! This must be Sweet Sauce Chicken... For the American... Cos we Asians like Steamed Chicken like this!  LOL...  And the star dish of the dinner is this...  Freshly steamed and succulent prawns

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

Night Market Along Lee Garden Plaza Hotel, Hatyai

BY THE TIME WE REACHED THE HOTEL, it was almost dark. This time round, we took a longer rest in the hotel... my girl might not need it but I certainly did!  After recharging around 80% of my body strength, we were ready to explore the streets again. Our hotel is really a strategic spot for us tourists.  The street vendors were all ready to boost their sales in front, at the side and along the whole stretch of street where we stayed.  Left, right, front... the place was filled with people and tourists like us... I could hear some of them speaking my dialect, we felt kind of at home instead of being tourists.... Besides the street vendors in front of the hotel, there was a night market just five minutes walking distance away from our hotel, Lee Garden Plaza.... Maybe they only opened during the weekends?  I am not sure about that.. .anyway, we were kind of excited to see all the bright lights along the street.... Come... Let's Go! We started from the beginning of the str
