Bought this Rex door seal thinking to reduce noise. However, i doubt it is very good for noise, this is good to reduce noise of door closing though, no more door banging noise.

This one i bought is “P” shape, you can see it on the left in photo above.

A company outing. We went Tadom Hill, it is suitable for group outing. Not cheap. They have flying fox, and you have to decide on the spot (when buying entrance ticket) whether you want unlimited and only once flying fox. Some of us bought the unlimited flying box, but end up going only once. So unless you are crazy on flying fox, buy the one-time-flying-fox ticket. The small hut in picture above is the starting point of flying fox, and you have to walk quite a distance to go back, and your body can’t be wet (from playing the water activities), so one-time-F-F recommended, instead of the unlimted ones. Do check out Faves who has some discount for this place

Surprisingly, they have quite a lot of accomodation here:

Also a canteen which serves quite nice chicken rice set for only RM10


Ppl walking towards flying fox, so sunny and hot!


Into the water, from a water slide


We play quite a bit of kayak, and with some pushing others to overturn, so some of us fall into the water. The cleanliness of the water is in question, they do put up a sign at the side to make aware this fact.


Before Tadom hill, we went Putrajaya Wetland, which is closed by to see Rhino feeding, quite nice to see them eating grass, papaya etc. We also went to see crocodile in the same compound.

Just for own record, Mutiara Complex, Jalan Ipoh has 2 shops which you can take IC photos. Kedai Gambar Campbell (below pic) charging more expensive. It is better to go to a shop which sells photography equipment (reflective board, tripod etc), ie  DC Color Imaging System Sdn Bhd, so much cheaper

Glove reviews

Ladies like to use hand cream. What better is “prevention is better than cure” 😀 Gloves will prevent hands from getting in touch with strong dishwashing detergent. So far these 2 are the more heavy duty ones out of quite a few which i have tried (Aeon value is really small though is medium size; Mr DIY ones doesn’t last long, and once bought a pair which is both for left hand) Above is from HeroMarket in TTDI, priced at RM 7.70… The size is a bit on the small size for this size:M, therefore recommend to size up to L. Bought a L size one, and the fit is perfect.


Above is the best gloves, i think it lasted for quite a while (can’t remember it is 3 months or 6 months) and still sturdy. Bought from Tesco, but i can’t remember which branch, and i seem can’t find them anymore 🙁 This glove is heavy duty, good thickness, and very good. Though it listed as “long cuff”, it is not super long, it is just nice for daily use. This Rubberex is no longer sold in Tesco. But googling Rubberex and few phone calls later, i found it sold in Econmart in Taman Sentosa, Klang for RM9.

MyUS – the best USA forwarding service i have so far

In continuation to my latest experience with Global Shopaholics, though positive, i am almost on lookout for cheaper options.

The previous time is charger 16 lb (7kg) dimensional weight, though actual weight only 4kg. Shipping fee paid is US$93.46

For this time, i am trying my US as they are having promotion for Mastercard, free 1 year membership, with 30% off shipping fee for first month.  I got some items from USA site, and after repacked it is 5.3 lb, which is 2.5kg. I was charge total $53, after 30 discount, it is only $39.

When the package reach me, it is delivered to me via Fedex, the documents did said my purchase has RM58.22 Import GST and RM5 “Free Commercial Zone” charge, total RM63.22, but i am happy to say this import cost is bornt by FedEX, i don’t need to pay for this tax amount, unlike Comgateway/Global Shopoholics which uses DHL, and i need to pay these import tax and charge.

although i really don’t get how my purchase – worth USD 110 and shipping USD39, total is around USD150, which converted to about RM600 can incur RM63.22 charge. The document did say it is 6% tax, but it is more than 10% to me. Anyhoo, as long as i am not paying, it doesn’t really matter

I really like MyUS TruePrice: calculation method which does not take into consideration the dimensional weight. Save so much when items are like shoes which are generally larger dimensionally.

After trying Comgateway, and Global Shopaholics, i am seeing i think i will like MyUS much more due to TruePrice price calculation method.

No monetary / non-monetary paid to me to promote MyUS, go try MyUS, they have promo where by MasterCard user can get free 2 year membership, first month with 30% off shipping, subsequent months 20%:

Below are my previous shopping experience:

Shipping from US To Malaysia (Aug 2009)

US Online Shopping using Comgateway DHL Delivery service, deliver to Malaysia (Sept 2010)
