The Old Honda Accord

My uncle still drives his old Honda Accord, even after all these years. We keep asking him to change to a newer, more reliable car, but he keeps it running in good condition, and besides he's got this special sentimental attachment to the car. I think he got married when he first bought that white Accord.

But these days he admits its harder and harder to maintain the vehicle, as with any old model that aren't as efficient as they used to be. The other big problem for him is how difficult it is for him to find spare parts. Not only can they be hard to find especially for discontinued models, plus it is also usually very expensive. But i've managed to find a radiator for him the other day. The site carry all the major Honda Radiator models, and most importantly the one he was looking for.

They're very professional folks, they can assist with their professional advice and they stock lots and lots of models for most new and old cars. Recommended.

(okay i know this pic isn't the exact scene, but it's from the same season, this is from the "Never off the table" scene...)

I'm a huge fan of the show... i was watching 'Derailed' starring Jennifer Aniston, i was reminded of this great scene. For those who can't remember, (or are unfortunate enough not to have watched it), it's from the second last episode, of the closing season.

Like i said, i love the show. Where's my DVD box set now?

For Doctors On The Go

Doctors are always busy people, trust me i know i've spent a lot of time waiting for them in their waiting rooms and hospitals. And now with the every increasing demand of treatment for critical cases and emergencies, doctors are finding themselves on the move and making housecalls.

That's all and good, but that means that the doctors and medical personnel are without their medical information when away from the desk, unless you have prepared to take it with beforehand. But now you can. Epocrates has a great system to offer on the go doctors to be able to view important medical information via a PDA (personal digital assistant) or a smartphone. The system, a kind of PDA medical software is now used by over half a million healthcare professionals.

Think about what a difference such speed of info can make. The package comes with free medical PDA software for most platforms, and more are in the pipleline for iPhone, iPod and Blackberry devices.

This can sometimes mean the difference between life and death.

This announcement was paid for by Epocrates.

No Credit Credit Cards

Everyone has credit cards. I have 2 myself, but I only use one frequently, the other is only for emergency use, but in my 12 years of using the first one, it has not failed me yet. But everyone else I know have at least has 2 or three, and most of them actively use them all the time, in part due to our active lifestyle in this day and age.

But credit in our lives today, permeates our lifestyles more than in the form of credit card, we take credit in the form of home loans, personal loans and car loans. I am currently servicing one huge car loan and an even bigger home loan.
If you have problems getting a card, due to any particular reason like having a bad credit history, you can imagine the problems you have with cashflow. You can’t get a credit card, you have problems getting your loans approved (if they even get considered at all) and you probably have to rely a lot of cash, which you don’t have a lot of, and is the precise reason why you need credit in the first place. Check out no credit credit card they have the listings of all the best cards for people with no credit. Very nifty website, they are heaven sent for some of us.

Protecting Women

Ladies out there, its always difficult to find good people that are likeminded with you, whether they are guys or girls. If you are looking for a relationship or just wanting to meet men, then you can understand the difficulties that come along with it. There are lots of unsavory characters out there, and sometimes you won't be able to tell if a guy is one or not by just looking at them.

But meeting new friends on the Internet is getting more and more popular these days. But with the anonymity that the Internet offers poses a whole new level of dangers, although it also opens up your opportunity to a wider number of friends.

So what can you do about it to protect yourselves from these pitfalls and dangers?

As a relationship expert aims to help modern women deal with men by networking together to share their stories to bring the good guys. The website works on the maxim of "research and rate BEFORE they date" to be able to make better choices, and save women all over the world a lot of heartache.

Going Back to Wisma Atria

Some time ago when I was on school holiday, I came up to KL by express bus to visit my sister for a few days. She was living in SS2 at that time, and the one thing I remembered was she brought me to Swensen’s near Wisma Atria in Damansara Jaya.

That was the very first time I came to Wisma Atria. Yes, long before The Curve or 1 Utama or Mid Valley, PJ had Wisma Atria, the modest shopping mall surrounded by shop offices servicing the middle class residents of Damansara Jaya, SS2 and Damansara Utama. It was never as happening as those huge malls in KL at that time, but it thrived as a community mall, with its family based shops and eateries. There was also a little Parkson, where housewives came to do their shopping during the weekdays, and families hung out together during the weekends at Esquire Kitchen or KFC.

Then later when I first came to work in KL and stayed in SS2 as well, I came to Wisma Atria almost every weekend, during the times when I wasn’t in Imbi Plaza (that’s another place I should blog about someday…!). I remember back then there were these huge PC shops outside Atria, CompAsia being one of them, the other the names seem to escape me. There were also other frequent haunts – the old magazine shop where I could get PSOne mags cheap, the Playstation shops on the 2nd floor, and the PC games shops at the top floor. And also Victoria Music Station, where I fed my dose of underground metal in those days (Campbell Complex was too far).

The other day, I was in Shah Alam for a party, and I got an SMS that my pal HM’s grandmother had passed on, and that a wake service would be held somewhere in DU that same day. So to kill time, I decided to drop by at Wisma Atria for an hour or so, I didn’t want to go to madness that is called 1-Utama.

I had known that Wisma Atria had been in decline for many years now, but it had been a long time since I stepped in there. It was still early on the Sunday evening, and the place was almost deserted. Parkson was gone, replaced by the depressing new Giant. All the cool Playstation lots facing Parkson were all gone. All my usual haunts upstairs were also gone, replaced by other tenants that don’t seem to last very long. Only a few familiar places were still around, one of them was the PC store at the top, but inside, I didn’t see anyone I knew.

Dave’s Deli was gone, the bookshop replaced with some faux couture place, at least Victoria Music Centre was still there. I didn’t go in.

Wisma Atria is now a shadow of its former self, with the kids in the area all grown up and moving away. The newer generation of kids and students are obviously more attracted to 1-Utama and the newer malls, it isn’t hard to see why.

I don’t know how long the place can last, even though the management is still desperately trying ways to revitalize it. I think it pretty much depend on the lunch crowd from the surrounding offices. I dunno, maybe it’s better to redevelop it as a kind of rebirth, but it may not still work.

At least Jaya Supermarket is still doing well, although only just.

Desperate for Credit

Everyone needs credit. Like it or not, credit has become a huge part of our lives these days. We take a loan whenever we want to buy a house or a car or when we are seriously short of money. But by far the most common form of credit that pervades our every day life is the humble credit card. Everyone I know has a few, at least two that they carry around on a daily basis.

I use the card to pay for a lot of things, like when I pay for groceries or when I pump petrol at the station. And I use it a lot to pay for monthly auto debit payments. That adds up to quite a lot every month, I know that, but these things are necessary for me like membership payments and monthly scheduled deductions.

I can’t imagine life without credit cards, not because of dependence on it, but because it has become integral to our society. So if you can’t have a credit card for any particular reason, that it’s going to be a problem. If you need to check out Credit card offers for no credit, the best place is here, because you can see all the best offers in one nifty page.
