Week 49, 2015

Alas, the weekend is coming to an end and looking forward to the upcoming long weekend (yep, it's that time of year again - Sultan's birthday on Friday). I know what NOT TO DO on that particular state holiday: go to the Big Bad Wolf Books sale. I wish I was kidding. 

  • Took MBPJ long enough to put their foot down on getting people to pay their saman - by threatening to bar them from renewing their road tax. There are people I know who treat those parking summons like used tissue paper and just toss them away. The kicker is that they're offering 80% discount on unpaid saman or something like that until the end of next February. I figured this would happen at some point and glad that I pay them promptly... just because you get a significant discount if you pay within the first couple weeks of getting them. Whether this will happen or not is another story.
  • Saw Instant Cafe Theatre's 4 hour gala performance at the Dewan Sivik MBPJ on Tuesday night. 
  • Made the annual pilgrimage to the Wolf's lair on Saturday afternoon. 
  • Maybank wants to disable online and MOTO (mail order, telephone order) transactions on their issued cards starting next year; and if you're opting out (read: still want to make online purchases), you have to let them know by text and/or over the phone. Apparently it's not a scam, but it sounds so scammy, Maybank has to keep confirming that they're really doing this for people left, right and centre through phone and social media. 
  • People getting their baby names from Instagram filters. Oy vey. 
  • The Blue Man Group is playing in Singapore next year and early bird tickets are on sale now. If you haven't seen them before, you should.
