Extra Tax Relief for 2012

In the current economic situation, we must ensure that we claim our income tax relief to the maximum. So, I listed here just a few for you to work on before 31 December 2012!

1. EPF contribution
2. Private Retirement Scheme - you may ask me.
3. Children education saving - find out from Maybank. They are agent.
4. Medical allowances
5. Medical equipment for disabled child/parents/spouse
6. Insurance for some

For full details, make sure that you download the income tax explanation booklet from IRB website.

For those high income group, probably only items 3, 4 and 5 are applicable to you.

Accident again at Pujut 4C/ Pujut 5 junction

Pujut 4C/Pujut 5 junction is a notorious accident spot. In think on average, there was one accident every month. My car was knocked twice at this spot also.
 So just now, 2PM, we saw a Proton Gen 2 and a brand new Viva knocked into each other.
This Viva is badly damaged.
I hope the local authority will quickly build a speed bump here so that people will slow down. Also, the road should be properly painted... perhaps with yellow strips.

天下男人没有有个是好东西 (All men are bad?)

 因為吃到最後 就把心扔了,
想要看到男人的心 就需要一層一層去剝!
 剝到最後你才知道洋蔥是沒心的 !


My translation:

Women are like pears,
Outside, it is sweet but the core is sour.
Those eating pear would never knew that the core is sour,
Because the core is always thrown away,
So men never understood a woman's heart.
Men are like onions,
To see a man's heart, you need to peel layer by layer!
But in the process of peeling, much tears will be shed.
In the end, you only knew that onions has no heart!

God is love, He is the creator. Therefore man has heart and soul!

Golden Dragon Fruit Flower

I bet there isn't a dragon fruit flower which is golden/pinkish in colour. But here it is... it wasn't photoshopped but ...
colour was modified during exposure time using a red reflector. Anyone can do it. The easiest is to cover your flash with a colour gel (film).
The original colour is snow white which I thought was too boring.

SPM and STPM tomorrow

To all my readers, I wish you all the best in the SPM and STPM exam starting tomorrow.

On the positive side, especially those science students, I was made to understand that the passing marks for the science subjects could be as low as 20%! So, if you are doing last minute revision, make sure that you can do all the subjects/chapters you like most... perhaps choose a minimum of three chapters.

I had a glance at some mock exam papers and was stunted to find that some students actually scored a big ZERO in basic science. A simple question like "Name a natural preservative" drew a blank! What on earth are those students doing in class? I knew many students actually slept through classes or busy talking.

Reflecting back to 1973, I was panic stricken and study like crazy for the last 6 months as the future will be bad if I didn't do well. I already knew what I wanted to study/do. Imagine that while I was in Form 4, we have a successful photo studio/business. But nowadays, many students are still unsure.... perhaps too much computer games.

So, go to study if you are having to sit for exams. Luck could still be there even if it last minute preparation.
