October – A Year Older, A Year Wiser

Yup, I am getting older. Not a surprise. I'm just glad that I am still able to write this entry. The time passes incredibly fast and it's only less than 3 months to go until the end of 2018. So I will try my best to make it a habit to write about my personal thoughts regarding the current issues which have been happening for the past few weeks and also some update about myself.

For those who have not read about my August entry, or maybe you have. Here's some more update from where I have left it. I've gotten back my laptop last month after sending it to the service centre. It took about three days for them to diagnose the problem and then another two weeks to replace the motherboard. It cost me a lot but looking at the price of a brand new Macbook Pro now, the lowest specs is priced at RM5,932.00. That's crazy expensive and I thought technology should be getting cheaper every year. I guessed this doesn't apply to Apple products. I bought my Macbook Pro 13" back in 2011 and it cost me RM3,799 which I think is a decent price for a Pro model.

Many people asked me why do I need to stick to macOS and I should buy a Windows laptop for half the price but here I dare to say that if you have used macOS for a period of time, there's no way that you will want to go back to Windows. There might be limitation in terms of certain software or in the gaming section but it's a super powerful work horse. I've used my laptop for seven years now and it's still as good as those brand new Windows with Intel i3 processor laptop in the market. It just unfortunate that my laptop could not update to the latest macOS Mojave.

My Singapore trip in September 2018

During last month's long weekend, I went down to Singapore for a 4 days 3 night trip. Although it was quite short thanks to the long weekend traffic jam, I enjoyed myself a lot with the company of my friends and getting the food which I have planned to eat before the trip. Some food were good to be honest and there's one which was super overrated. Damn regret paying SGD6 (RM18) for it!

 Other than chilling with friends and food hunting, I have also visited Sentosa Sandsation: MARVEL Edition at Siloso Beach and I was really impressed with the huge sand sculptures there. I might write about it soon and also a separate blog post dedicated to Singapore food. Let me know if you want to read it and I'll try to post it up as soon as possible.

This month marked the third year renewing my car insurance. Another chunk of my salary spent there. I hope that I can just travel to work by MRT or LRT train just like my colleagues but too bad the nearest train to my place is the slowpoke KTM – Oh hi, new Malaysia, same old KTM service. Year end is coming soon, so I need to save more money to plan for next year's trip or perhaps for something bigger? Hahaha...

Last but not least... my birthday is coming soon. Like really soon. I mean it's literally less than 24 hours. HAPPY BIRTHDAY to me! In the coming years, I wish that I am able to achieve financial freedom, focus and spend more time on my priorities and also to be able to travel more. If you want to buy me a birthday gift but too far away, don't worry, you can always do so by following my Facebook page and also my Instagram account. That's a super nice virtual gift for me. Thank you very much in advance and I wish you everyone a happy month of October!
