New Rims

Got a new rim for our Mini. The old tyre rim was actually pretty ugly (hey, that's an oxymoron!). Some don't-know-what brand, with lots of spoke wan. Not to mention, difficult to clean. And rusty somemore.

So when my dad called me to say someone's (potong shop lor) selling a set of 12-inch standard Minilite rims (aka pisang rim), immediately I said "Yes!".

Happy only.

So, had a friend sprayed some metalic paints over it, clear-coat (chrome too expensive), brought to a tyre shop to fix it.

"Boss, cannot lar. This one need special nuts wan".

"Hah? Why? Cannot ah?". *sweat*

"Yalar, sumore the screws all so short wan. You see, the screw hole on the rim ah, very big you know. Normal nuts cannot wan. You need to get this special nut lor".



Asked around a few shops, some friends, all say don't have. Sin Tong Bee shop said must order from UK, which would cost me around Rm25-30 per piece. And I needed 16.
Double Aiyo.

So ended up manufactured it locally.

The rims cost us RM400. The nuts, RM300!!

Lesson of the day: Make sure you check and ensure the screws and the nuts are available, before you buy new rims.

Sin Tong Bee is a classic car accessories shop located in Jln Pudu. Expensive.

Mami : So, how is she doing?

Teacher : She's doing just fine.

Mami : Good.

Teacher : But she's a bit boyish. She's quite active compared to other girls.

Mami : Oh really?

What? Boyish? My little girl boyish??
She's not boyish, just a little active girl. That's normal, isn't it?

Well, I admit. She doesn't sit down still when watching TV. She would run here and there, climbing and jumping on the couch. That's not boyish.

Going for shopping, she would jump and run excitedly, instead of walking. But that's not boyish.

At the playground, she would choose the most challenging and dangerous equipment to play with. Climbing, crawling, sliding down at top speed. That's not boyish, right?


Well, maybe a little.
But she's still our little girl.

Only when she's 4..

Mami : Yiyi, why do you cry when you go to school?

Yiyi : Because I want you to accompany me.

Mami : When will you stop crying?

Yiyi : When I am 4 years old, Mami.

For the past 3 days, Mami was having no problem sending her to school. But when I sent her today, she cried again. Manja me lor.

She gave all kind of excuses to delay us. The teacher held her, while I went for the door. She was kicking and screaming. I went out and closed the door, and stood there peeking through the glass pane on the door.

Slowly, she calmed down, but still tried to look for me through the glass pane. I stood there, waving at her, letting her know I'm there. But slowly, I stand further and further, and until she was completely distracted by her friends, teachers and toys, I left.

Tomorrow will be her last day.

First Day at School

Last week was Yiyi's first day at 'school'. Pre-school to be exact.

Well, it's actually a holiday programme for two weeks, not the real semester yet, but we signed her up just to get her started. We wanted her to get used to the environment of her new pre-school.

Yay!! I am going to school!!

She was getting really bored at home. Watch TV, playing with her toys and talking to her GrandMa. When she started to talk like GrandMa, we decided it's time to send her to pre-school.

The first 3 days was OK. She was really happy and excited. She even brought back stuffs that she made at school, and talked about her day at school and her friends. But on the 4th day(Thursday) and onwards, she started to cry and ask for Mami and me.

So over the weekend, we have been trying to 'brainwash' her. Telling her the good things about her school, her friends, stuff they get to do, like dancing, singing etc. She was really excited and promised she won't cry.

But today, she cried again when I dropped her at the school.

I guessed it's gonna take some time for her to get herself comfortable and to trust the teachers there. Let see how the rest of this week goes.
