"Thomas" is back...

Tuuuttt... tuuuttt.. Thomas n Friends is back on the track.. And this would give good news to the residents around Papar, Kinarut and along the way at Putatan as well. Coz, they now have alternative routes to reach their workplaces. Mostly for those who work in K.K... You know la kan.. area sana tu start dari Kinarut sampai KK, jalan jem gila.. Ntah bila laitu jalan di sana mau siap.


The interior look owesome
According to the opinion of my friend, the train is beautiful and great looks. The interior had also been enhanced.. Make me impatient to try the service.. hehehe.

I still remember, last time I ride this train in 1994 from Tg Aru railway station to Papar.. perrghhh.. lama sdh pula tu kan.. hehehe. Time tu masih sikul lagi bah.. baru tingkatan 4.. That was 17 years ago.. This time, I want to bring my family to ride this train, travel from Tg Aru to Beaufort... I was wondering if my lil prince Rayyan like it or not sinced he is very interested in trains.. especially the cartoon Thomas n Friends.

Not forgetting my beloved lil princess Ryanna, how would she feel when she is boarded the train.. hehehe.. just wait and see la kan... chowww !!

Sunday car mart @ PJ new town..


Second-hand goods make more sense in our current situation.. And flea markets are a good place to hunt all kinds of things.. But, Where should people looking for used cars turn to apart from the classified ads?

Try PJ new town's Sunday car mart.. Hundreds flock here to look for cars and test their bargaining skills.

Sunday Car Mart... all these car are for sale
According to long-time residents (my best friend), the car mart started more than two decades ago when the MBPJ rented out the parking lot in front of the Civic Centre to a man who in turn charged a fee to sellers who wanted to come and display their cars to potential buyers.

As interest grew in this casual car market, the cars being put up for sale increased, spilling over to the main road (Jalan Yong Shook Lin). Eventually, the council stopped renting out their parking spaces, but a private company stepped in and offered its four-storey carpark (Kompleks A, behind Standard Chartered bank)  to be used for the mart, calling it Car Boot Sale.

Buyer looking for their dream car
Today, this weekly event, which takes place between 8am and 4pm, is so popular that lots are quickly snapped up.

But if you don’t want to pay to display, you can alternatively bring your car and exhibit it at the MBPJ bays nearby. It’s free but sellers usually send their cronies to pre-book these lots the night before. The cars on offer are often spruced up, with the bonnets left open for buyers to inspect the engines.

Wheel and stering also available here
Should you require an audio system, you will probably find it here too. Yes, just about every car accessory can be found at the car mart, including tyres, spare parts and car insurance.

Here, buyers negotiate directly with the sellers, eliminating the need for a middleman. The cars may also be test-driven on the spot.

If you think the mart is only for the cheaper cars, you’d be dead wrong. Many high-end foreign cars like the BMW, Mercedes and Jaguar also find their way here. Even used car dealers are taking advantage of the car mart to showcase their products.

Till then, happy hunting... errr.. hunting for your "new car".. chowww !!!

Goodbye Mr Cool.....




It’s another obituary on this early year. The former guitarist Thin Lizzy Robert William Gary Moore has passed away at the age of 58-years-old. He died while he spent winter holiday in Spain on Sunday 6, 2011.. Better know simply as Gary Moore died in a room at the Kempinski Hotel on the Costa del Sol. He was on holiday in the Costa del Sol in Spain with his unnamed girlfriend.

Gary Moore.... RIP
Originally from Northern Ireland, Moore was drafted into Thin Lizzy by Phil Lynott, but also was successful in his solo career as a rock guitarist.  His early career started out with Irish band Skid Row.

Having embraced a range of music genres, Moore performed live on stage with a range of major artists, and released some 20 studio albums during his career.

Described as a “genius”, Moore had not fallen victim to the rock and roll life style, so his sudden death has come as a shock to many fans in all around the world. Suspected heart attack!!

Like the other performers, although he has left us forever... but his songs will remain with us forever such as song called Still Got The Blues.

To me.... Gary Moore is a very very very talented guitar player. I was listening and interested in his songs since I was in high school. And until now, I still play his songs.
