My Red Babe At Car Clinic

FOR THREE CONSECUTIVE DAYS, I have to go to the car clinic....
Wednesday, did servicing on my car and that cost around RM150...
Thursday, servicing on my girl's car and that doubled the amount RM313 for a small car...
Friday, took my car again for repair this time... fixed front and back brakes and that cost RM220.. and that summed up to nearly RM700....

For the first time in history this morning, I left the car with the mechanic and walked few doors away to have breakfast alone.  One hour later, my car was still not ready... so I sat there and waited for another hour or more before my red babe is given the green light to go....

Front and back brakes needed to be replaced.....
Front is RM95 and back is RM65
Workmanship is RM60
He has a faithful helper around him each day so I am told....
Not one by two..... 
They come each day to "help" the boss around 11am...
And after lunch, they will leave... 
I put up this post for self-reminder and information....
My car is around 11 years old... 
this is the second time the brakes are changed as far as I can remember... 
Other than the brakes, my car is still in good condition...
That is a relief to hear.....


  1. Lol! The faithful helper seems to like your sandal! You have taken good care of your car to keep it in tip top condition.

  2. I like the two faithful helper... hehe...

  3. good that you take good care of your cars.

    1. Lone driver so should be ok.. but every now and then must maintain.

  4. It is important to take good care of your car. Especially more than 10 years old.

  5. It's good that you send your cars for regular checks. Women drivers like us need to ensure our cars are in tip top condition, otherwise we'll be really helpless when the car breaks down somewhere.

    1. Yes, yes.. that is one of the main reasons!

  6. The two faithful helpers are so cute, soulmates indeed

    1. I mean they are good soulmate for the human, hee hee

  7. Your car looks a bit like ours, Claire. I can't imagine how some people can afford more than one car.

  8. Never mind how much, can't place the price on one's safety! Always make sure your cars are in tip top shape. Drive safe!

  9. Your sports car is it? hee..hee..

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

Our Orders From Afghanistan, Spanish And Australia

My Final post on the Food Festival in the Victoria Market on Wednesday night.... The atmosphere at the market was "enhanced" by the cheerful songs and music by a group band... It was indeed a merry evening filled with music-licous folk songs in the air... . Ok, how to find four seats in this crowd.... hmmmm....... Somehow we managed to... and these were what my boys brought back to our table.... Mexican rice with oysters... or is it Spanish rice?   Both are the same, I guess... LOL.... Afghanistan Food.... chunks of chicken meat with naan.... Brazilian food.... don't ask me what it is.... I just ate what was on the table....  But I am amazed by this giant burger....  ..... and what burger is this? They told me it is Crocodile Tail Burger! Meat from the crocodile tail?  Is it just a name or what... I really don't know... Took a few bites of it... and I am full!! Well, these were the food we

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
