Sunday family day with family members

We have a good time spending the Sunday at the Sunway Pyramid form 10.45am to evening around 7pm. No kidding we have been there all day because my son won to be final contestants in Jump Smash 15. The parking for so long hours was RM10.

My son got excited that he was one of the finalists. I am so happy for him and he too wanted me to play. As I told him that I also want to join in the Final, I didn't give up trying. I queue and play and then queue again to go play until I score 8-6. Yeah I won and can be in the running with other 31 contestants.

It was a good time being with my boys, though my youngest didn't make it to the final but he's there to support me and his brother all the way.

I rejected the invite for last Saturday to go Genting events because I thought we are going back to PD but we have change the date. Even though we didn't go back PD but the room for Merdeka weekends aren't going to be cheap so we decided to let it go.

Didn't know that letting go an event, I receive another invitation to go. It's a blessing indeed, from the event both of us learn about winning and failure. Though we didn't win but at least we have try our best. I am proud of my son.

This morning I attended the event to find out who are the winners for "GO GASHLESS CONTEST". The concourse at Giant USJ was filled with cheers and applause this morning, as 10 lucky customers received their prizes, including a Proton Exora 1.6 standard, for winning in the “Giant Go Cashless” shopping contest. Joining them in the joyous celebration were their family members.

Above Norine Majaman, General Manager, Marketing of GCH Retail (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd, the owner of Giant stores in Malaysia; and Peter Schiesser, Managing Director of Malaysian Electronic Clearing Corporation Sdn Bhd (MyClear) together awaiting Grand Prize winner announcement.

The Go Cashless contest is one of GCH Retail’s ongoing efforts to encourage consumers, especially those who shop at Giant, to pay for their purchases with ATM or debit cards. It was organised in conjunction with (MyClear) in support of the Government’s aspirations to make cashless transactions a way of life in Malaysia.

This contest has attracted over 73,000 entries in the eight-week contest, which is almost double the number entries received in the 13 weeks last year.

The results are very encouraging as it shows that customers are ready to embrace the e-debit habit and to make cashless transactions a way of life.

Giant is the first hypermarket chain to offer customers the convenience of shopping with their ATM cards at all Giant stores throughout the country.

Apart from eliminating the risks and costs arising from handling cash, e-debit transactions also lowers the cost of doing business, as the merchant discount rate for ATM/debit cards is at least 40 per cent lower than international branded debit and credit cards. For customers, e-debit gives them another option of a convenient and safe way to pay for their shopping.

The ATM cards issued by 15 banks – Affin Bank, Alliance Bank, Agro Bank, AmBank, Bank Islam, Bank Muamalat, Bank Rakyat, CIMB Bank, Hong Leong Bank, Kuwait Finance House, Maybank, OCBC, Public Bank, UOB Bank and RHB Bank were accepted for participation in the contest.

The winners of the contest are as follows:

 Naziah Binti Mohd Yusuff took home the Grand Prize of Proton Exora 1.6 Standard, worth RM56,500;
 Henery Anak Sigan walked away with the 1st prize of Air Asia Travel voucher worth RM8,000.00;
 Samehah Binti Wan Abdullah took home the 2nd prize of Air Asia Travel voucher worth RM5,000.00;
 Anwar Ul Haque won the 3rd prize of Air Asia Travel voucher worth RM3,000.00.

Six others each received a consolation prize of RM1,000 worth of Air Asia Travel vouchers, they were.
Teh Fatihah Binti Hassan
Che Rosli Bin Che Othman,
Mohd Arif Fadzli Bin Ibrahim,
Faizzah Binti Mohtar,
Jaliyah Binti Jalil
and Mohd Ilyas Bin Mohd Jamin.

Once again congrats to winners, it's a joy looking at everyone's happy face during the prize giving ceremony.

Planning to go Melaka

It's been more than 5 years since my parents last step foot in Melaka, the last trip with them were few years back. Melaka town is fulled with many food to eat, I am hoping to dine for my favourite meals there.

Can't wait it's just few more days to go and we going to have family vacation there. My dear checked the best deal would be in Swiss Garden Hotel and Apartment, we haven't been to this hotel before it would be our first experience there.

We thought of Hatten Hotel but the family suite for 4 pax cost up to RM880 a night with only breakfast for 4 pax. I read about the hotel accommodation review on the hotel.

For us the accommodation is important because we prefer family room. The connection room in the hotel would be fine for us, but these days not many hotels are having this convenient. The new rooms in hotel now are mostly side by side for your convenience it's not connecting room after all. We want to stick together so it's best to be staying close together. Nobody wants to be split up or in separate rooms which is far apart from each other.

Browsing bags online website

What's your favourite pass time? I prefer to do online browsing for things that interest me namely bags. I have bags addiction though I also love shoes, some how I love bags even more, don't ask me why.

I bought a pair of shoes which I though I can fit nicely in Zalora but sad to say the heels are too high for me. I am not fan of heels shoes, I afraid I fall. No kidding because I am quite clumsy person. Though the shoes are in good condition and still wearable, but soon it will be pass down to my niece as nobody in my family can fit in this shoes of mine.

Besides Zalora, I also shopping shoes and bags at XES Premium Store, they have a store in AEON BIG SUBANG JAYA. That's where I brought my dear to purchase his men's shoes.

Which would you prefer? Feel and touch the item or just purchase them online as they looks good?

Calling A Contractor

Working on your roof will likely be a difficult job if you are afraid of heights or if you aren't sure of how to place shingles or repairs needed to stop a leak. This is when you can call a roofing contractor to get the work done for you so that it's done right. Aside from a leak, there are a few other reasons to contact a contractor.

If there a small black particles when you clean your gutters, you should probably consider calling a contractor. There particles could be a sign that the shingles are falling and losing pieces that will hold them in a place. Some shingles might blow away after a storm, or there could be damage from hail. Missing shingles could be easy to replace, but there might be damage underneath the shingles that you don't see. The contractor can examine the roof to see if there is anything underlying damage before replacing the shingles.

Pay attention to the decks or carport outside. Some water leaking from the roof is common, but if you continue to see water dripping from the roof, then this is likely a sign that there is a leakage allowing water to reach the lower levels of the roof. This can lead to a hole being created if excessive water comes through. Some shingles might look like they are popping off of the roof. This can allow wind to get underneath the shingles, causing them to blow away. It could also mean rain gets underneath the shingles. Another reason to contact a contractor would be if you want a different style of roof, such as metal, or if you are modelling a home and need to add a new roof because the current one isn't in good condition for the home.

About Turkey Tourism
Turkey is, above anything else, a huge open-air museum, a repository of all the civilizations nurtured by the soils of Anatolia. Recently, a new field of tourism has opened up: health tourism. The country is in fact rich with hot springs, healing waters and healing muds. For centuries, Turkey has also been a crossroads of religions, not only of Islam and Christianity, but also of many others now forgotten by history. Many religious devotees can find a site, a shrine, a monument, a tomb or a ruin connected with their faith or belief.
