Mr. and Mrs. Fenton are retired, and Mrs. Fenton insists her husband go with her to Wal-Mart. He gets so bored with all the shopping trips. He prefers to get in and get out, but Mrs. Fenton loves to browse. One day Mrs. Fenton gets this letter from Wal-Mart:
Dear Mrs. Fenton,
Over the past six months, your husband has been causing quite a commotion in our store. We cannot tolerate this behavior and may ban both of you from our stores. We have documented all incidents on our video surveillance equipment. All complaints against Mr. Fenton are listed below.
Things Mr. Bill Fenton has done while his spouse was shopping in Wal-Mart:
1. June 15: Took 24 boxes of condoms and randomly put them in people’s carts when they weren’t looking.
2. July 2: Set all the alarm clocks in House wares to go off at 5-minute intervals.
3. July 7: Made a trail of tomato juice on the floor leading to the ladies rest rooms.
4. July 19: Walked up to an employee and told her in an official tone, “Code 3 in house wares”… and watched what happened.
5. August 4: Went to the Service Desk and asked to put a bag of M&M’s on layaway.
6. September 14: Moved a ‘CAUTION - WET FLOOR’ sign to a carpeted area.
7. September 15: Set up a tent in the camping department and told other shoppers he’d invite them in if they’ll bring pillows from the bedding department.
8. September 23: When a clerk asks if they can help him, he begins to cry and asks, “Why can’t you people just leave me alone?”
9. October 4: Looked right into the security camera; used it as a mirror, and picked his nose.
10. November 10: While handling guns in the hunting department, asked the clerk if he knows where the antidepressants are.
11. December 3: Darted around the store suspiciously loudly humming the ‘Mission Impossible’ theme.
12. December 6: In the auto department, he practiced his 'Madonna look’ using different size funnels.
13. December 18: Hid in a clothing rack and when people browse through, yelled “PICK ME! PICK ME!”
14. December 21: When an announcement came over the loud speaker, he assumes the fetal position and screams “NO! NO! It’s those voices again!”
And last, but certainly not least…

One day a hippie gets a ride on a public bus and sees a hot young nun. He sits down next to her and promptly asks if she would like to have sex, to which she immediately says no and walks off the bus. The bus driver leans over and says “Hey guy, I know how to get that nun to have sex with you…”
Naturally the hippie asks, and the bus driver tells him that every night at midnight the nun goes to an old graveyard to pray for god to forgive her for her past, and that he should dress up like god and tell the nun she will be forgiven if she has sex with you.
The hippie gives his thanks and runs to the nearest costume shop.
Later that evening the hippie gets ready for his big night and drives down to the graveyard and sees the nun praying, on her knees. He says “Behold, I have heard your prayers and you shall be forgiven if you have sex with me!”
The nun agrees but asks if they can have anal sex in order to keep her virginity. The hippie agrees and once they are finished the hippie jumps back and pulls off his mask and says “Surprise, its me the Hippie!”
The nun jumps up and pulls off her mask and says "Surprise, its me the bus driver!"
“The Sarawak United People’s Party (SUPP) is currently collaborating with a financial institution on a special welfare scheme for senior citizens. Under the scheme, eligible senior citizens would receive monthly assistance of RM360 from the party through an appointed bank.”
If you have ever been approached by any person claimed to be officers from this party and offering you this sort of scheme, please be warned that it is only a scam. An elderly woman from Miri,
So my advice is, be really careful when being approached by anybody that you are not familiar with. No matter whom they claimed themselves to be, be it the police, the welfare officers, the government agents doing survey and stuff or even a sales person; you need to be extra suspicious towards them. Don’t put your trust easily on them as you might be shocked on what intention they might have towards you. Signing out. TheWonderWoman.

(To Women) please take time to ponder .........
(To Men) enjoy the moral of the story........
Young King Arthur was ambushed and imprisoned by the monarch of a neighboring kingdom. The monarch could have killed him but was moved by Arthur's youth and ideals. So, the monarch offered him his freedom, as long as he could answer a very difficult question. Arthur would have a year to figure out the answer and, If after a year, he still had no answer, he would be put to death.
The question was: What do women really want?
Such a question would perplex even the most knowledgeable man, and to young Arthur, it seemed an impossible query. But, since it was better than death, he accepted the monarch's proposition to have an answer by year's end.
He returned to his kingdom and began to poll everyone: The princess, the priests, the wise men, and even the court jester. He spoke with everyone, but no one could give him a satisfactory answer. Many people advised him to consult the old witch, for only she would have the answer. But the price would be high as the witch was famous through out the kingdom for the exorbitant prices she charged.
The last day of the year arrived and Arthur had no choice but to talk to the witch. She agreed to answer the question, but he would have to agree to her price first.
The old witch wanted to marry Sir Lancelot, the most noble of the Knights of the Round Table, and Arthur's closest friend! Young Arthur was horrified. She was hunch-backed and hideous, had only one tooth, smelled like sewage, made obscene noises, etc.
He had never encountered such a repugnant creature in all his life. He refused to force his friend to marry her and endure such a terrible burden, but Lancelot, having learnt of the proposal, spoke with Arthur. He said nothing was too big of a sacrifice compared to Arthur's life. And the reservation of the Round Table. Hence, a wedding was proclaimed and the witch answered Arthur's question thus: 'What a woman really wants?
She said, 'Is to be in charge of her own life.'
Everyone in the kingdom instantly knew that the witch had uttered a great truth. And that Arthur's life would be spared. And so it was. The neighboring monarch granted Arthur his freedom. And Lancelot and the witch had a wonderful wedding.
The honeymoon hour approached and, Lancelot, steeling himself for a horrific experience, entered the bedroom. But what a sight awaited him. The most beautiful woman he had ever seen lay before him on the bed. The astounded Lancelot asked what had happened. The beauty replied that since he had been so kind to her when she appeared as a witch, she would henceforth be her horrible and deformed self only half the time. And the beautiful maiden the other half.
'Which would you prefer? She asked him. 'Beautiful during the day..... or at night?'
Lancelot pondered the predicament. During the day he could have a beautiful woman to show off to his friends, but at night, in the privacy of his castle, an old witch! Or, would he prefer having a hideous witch during the day! ? But by night a beautiful woman for him to share his thoughts, intimate moments with?
(If you are a man reading this...) What would YOUR choice be?
(If you are a woman reading this) What should YOUR MAN'S choice be?
What Lancelot chose, is given below:
BUT... make YOUR choice before you scroll down below... OKAY?
Noble Lancelot, knowing the answer the witch gave Arthur to his question, he said that he would allow HER to make the choice herself. Upon hearing this, she announced that she would be beautiful all the time. Because, he had respected her enough to let her be in charge of her
Now... what is the moral to this story?
The moral is...
1) There is WITCH in every woman no matter how beautiful she is!
2) If you don't let a woman have her own way, things are going to get ugly. Hehehe...
So, always remember:
IT'S EITHER 'HER WAY' OR IT'S NO WAY' !!!

“Effective January 1 next year, smoking along five-foot ways and outside shopping malls will lead to a fine.”- source of The Borneo Post."
There you go folks! Don’t say that we didn’t warn you this time. Believe me this time it is for real! The anti-smoking campaign carried out by the government is getting more strict and forceful now. There will be additional ‘prohibited zones’ to be introduced coming next year which includes ban in places such as bars and clubs. Since the start of the year, the authorities together with the Kuching divisional office team has been conducting anti-smoking rounds which takes them from the airport to shopping complexes, schools, hospitals, public transportations and also air-conditioned eateries. Such places will be defined as any public place under a roof. Some smokers will also find that lighting up outside airport terminals including the parking bay is no longer allowed. The law is so that younger people are aware of the dangers of smoking and there is also a need for them to see less of their peers and elders smoking in public areas. Offenders who caught up smoking at these prohibited areas will be issued a fine amounted to RM500 for each offence. Failure to pay up fines will lead to court where sentencing can be up to RM10,000.00, two-years jail, or both.
A few of these moves were found to be similar to what is being enforced in countries like
So, lets give all of our support to this campaign this time around. For fellow smokers, my message to you is “You might want to consider quitting that bad habit of yours soon. In other words, your new year’s resolution perhaps? Good luck. Signing out. TheWonderWoman.

Do you know that with effect from 25 November 2008, it is a mandatory for employees returning from state-funded training course to share their knowledge with others. This would mean they need to post all relevant information to the State Civil Service knowledge-sharing portal for the benefit of other civil services.
The portal, which enables knowledge resources to be centralized in one unified system, was officially launched by Chief Minister, Pehin Sri Haji Abdul Taib Mahmud on the same day in conjunction with the State Public Service Assembly held at the State Indoor Stadium here in Petra Jaya.
The portal was viewed as the one place for civil service to get access to the latest information without much hassle. The knowledge to be contributed by these employees included documentation of their experience and opinions about the course, the seminar and conference materials. In addition, it is also a mandatory now for state employees to contribute teaching and course materials produced in the course of their work.
On the other hand, as a move to promote the use of this portal, an incentive to recognized and reward content contributors would also be implemented. So in conclusion, may I say this… civil servants who were sent to attend a course will now be really attached to the course from the start to the end of the course. No more “escaping” from the course, no more sleeping at the very back of the hall, and definitely no more getting your colleagues to sign for your attendance while you’ll be at home doing stuff that you weren’t suppose to do during office hours.

There is no doubt that government servants have many privileges compared to the private sector. The salary alone is relatively higher than what is being offered in the private sector to start with. Then there are the benefits such as good health care, yearly incentives, housing allowances and many more. However, non-Bumis were seen to be less enthusiastic to apply for jobs in the government sector through the Public Service Commission (PSC). So what may due to such scenario? Some say it is due to the non-Bumis have lower chances to be accepted in the government sectors to compare with the Bumis. And even if they were accepted, they felt that they would not be in a better position compared with Bumiputeras because of the perception that the government favoured Bumiputera workers. Or is it due to many non-Bumis preferred to earn a living by doing business than getting employed?
Well, if you were to ask my personal opinion on this matter, I definitely would say that the non-Bumiputera community had never been discriminated against. We have never seen jobs recruitment ads for civil service mentioning that only Bumiputeras are allowed to apply, or has any of it makes it a mandatory requirements for applicants to have studied in Malay school and what not (not like what we often see in the private sectors recruitment ads where it had stated clearly that applicants with fluent Mandarin is PREFERRED!!!) So there you go, there should be no more excuses for the non-Bumis to even think that they do not have equal opportunities to be in the civil service. If you have applied for a civil service job many times or filled up the online form for more than you can remember, and still not getting any feedback? Believe me, you are not alone! Even many of my friends and myself experienced that too. In fact we’ve been filling up that online form for god knows how many times. And we have waited and waited up until now, and sadly we were only called for the preliminary examination before we could be considered qualified to attend the interview. And to be honest, we didn’t get to go for the interview.
So, this is what I had to say. Never give up! If there’s a will and so there’s a way. Of course a stable job with a high salary and lots of benefits would be a hard catch right? These days, if the benefit is great, the bigger the effort you must give. Trust me, everyone can be in the civil service. All you need is just HARDWORK. If it is any help, I am now making my best contribution in the civil service and I’d still remember the girl sitting next to me on my 1st day for duty. She is one hell of friendly, intelligent and confident CHINESE lady. Signing out. TheWonderWoman.

I received this in my e-mail the other day and thought that i should share it with you guys since it is madly hilarious. I laughed so hard till my tears came out =] ENJOY!
Some guy bought a new fridge for his house. To get rid of his old fridge,
he put it in his front yard and hung a sign on it saying: 'Free to good
home. You want it, you take it.' For three days the fridge sat there without
even one person looking twice at it. He eventually decided that people were
too un-trusting of this deal. It looked to good to be true, so he changed
the sign to read: 'Fridge for sale $50.' The next day someone stole it.*
One day I was walking down the beach with some friends when someone
shouted....'Look at that dead bird!' Someone looked up at the sky and
While looking at a house, my brother asked the estate agent which direction
was north because, he explained, he didn't want the sun waking him up every
morning. She asked, 'Does the sun rise in the north?' When my brother
explained that the sun rises in the east, and has for sometime, she shook
her head and said, 'Oh, I don't keep up with that stuff.'
My colleague and I were eating our lunch in our cafeteria, when we overheard
one of the administrative assistants talking about the sunburn she got on
her weekend drive to the beach. She drove down in a convertible, but 'didn't
think she'd get sunburned because the car was moving'.*
I told the girl at the steakhouse register that I wanted the half kilogram
sirloin. She informed me they only had an 500g sirloin. Not wanting to
make a scene, I told her I would take the 500g steak instead of the

I was hanging out with a friend when we saw a woman with a nose ring
attached to an earring by a chain. My friend said, 'Wouldn't the chain rip
out every time she turned her head?' I had to explain that a person's nose

I got off the plane but I couldn't find my luggage at the airport baggage area.
So I went to the lost luggage office and told the woman there that my bags
never showed up. She smiled and told me not to worry because she was a
trained professional and I was in good hands. 'Now,' she asked me, 'Has
our plane arrived yet?'...*
While working at a pizza parlour I observed a man ordering a small pizza to
go. He appeared to be alone and the cook asked him if he would like it cut
into 4 pieces or 6. He thought about it for some time before responding..
'Just cut it into 4 pieces; I don't think I'm hungry enough to eat 6 pieces.*

Have you been to the Kuching Waterfront lately? The so called kuching’s popular recreational spot is now a disgrace too many of us since the recent crimes that appeared to involve students, including the murder of a Form 5 student. This once favorite leisure spot for families, joggers, tourist guides and even the newly-weds taking those wedding pictures has now been tainted with loitering students in the area which has make it an eerie place these days.
It would be such a humiliation to have tourists from both the local and international countries seeing students loitering and walking in space (I’m referring to those who were high on drugs or under the influence of alcohol). This is not a place for students to loiter but then again why they are allowed to do so in the open? Where are the authorities? Isn’t there a tourist police being stationed at the Waterfront? Strangely no one is doing anything until someone gets killed! Or maybe the security guards that the authorities sent to patrol the waterfront were not fit or capable of controlling these youngsters who were consuming alcohol and drugs or those who were fighting.
So I hope the local authorities will not only take serious actions when higher authorities come down from Bukit Aman and once these officers left, the local people are back to their leisurely couldn’t care-less attitude. I am also hoping that the authorities will come down hard on traders who sold alcohol and cigarettes to the students. Placing signs to the whole stretch of the Waterfront that reads “Stay Away From Alcohol! Do Not Destroy Your Future” is not enough and wouldn’t help that much if there is no serious actions taken by the authorities. Signing out. TheWonderWoman

Two men, both seriously ill, occupied the same hospital room. One man was allowed to sit up in his bed for an hour a day to drain the fluids from his lungs. His bed was next to the room's only window. The other man had to spend all his time flat on his back.
The men talked for hours on end. They spoke of their wives and families, their homes, their jobs, their involvement in the military service, where they had been on vacation. And every afternoon when the man in the bed next to the window could sit up, he would pass the time by describing to his roommate all the things he could see outside the window.
The man in the other bed would live for those one-hour periods where his world would be broadened and enlivened by all the activity and color of the outside world. The window overlooked a park with a lovely lake, the man had said. Ducks and swans played on the water while children sailed their model boats. Lovers walked arm in arm amid flowers of every color of the rainbow. Grand old trees graced the landscape, and a fine view of the city skyline could be seen in the distance. As the man by the window described all this in exquisite detail, the man on the other side of the room would close his eyes and imagine the picturesque scene.
One warm afternoon the man by the window described a parade passing by. Although the other man could not hear the band, he could see it in his mind's eye as the gentleman by the window portrayed it with descriptive words. Unexpectedly, an alien thought entered his head: Why should hehave all the pleasure of seeing everything while I never get to see anything? It didn't seem fair. As the thought fermented, the man felt ashamed at first. But as the days passed and he missed seeing more sights, his envy eroded into resentment and soon turned him sour. He began to brood and found himself unable to sleep. He should be by that window - and that thought now controlled his life.
Late one night, as he lay staring at the ceiling, the man by the window began to cough. He was choking on the fluid in his lungs. The other man watched in the dimly lit room as the struggling man by the window groped for the button to call for help. Listening from across the room, he never moved, never pushed his own button which would have brought the nurse running. In less than five minutes, the coughing and choking stopped, along with the sound of breathing. Now, there was only silence--deathly silence.
The following morning, the day nurse arrived to bring water for their baths. When she found the lifeless body of the man by the window, she was saddened and called the hospital attendant to take it away--no words, no fuss. As soon as it seemed appropriate, the man asked if he could be moved next to the window. The nurse was happy to make the switch and after making sure he was comfortable, she left him alone.
Slowly, painfully, he propped himself up on one elbow to take his first look. Finally, he would have the joy of seeing it all himself. He strained to slowly turn to look out the window beside the bed. It faced a blank wall.
Moral of the story:
The pursuit of happiness is a matter of choice...it is a positive attitude we consciously choose to express. It is not a gift that gets delivered to our doorstep each morning, nor does it come through the window. And I am certain that our circumstances are just a small part of what makes us joyful. If we wait for them to get just right, we will never find lasting joy.
The pursuit of happiness is an inward journey. Our minds are like programs, awaiting the code that will determine behaviors; like bank vaults awaiting our deposits. If we regularly deposit positive, encouraging, and uplifting thoughts, if we continue to bite our lips just before we begin to grumble and complain, if we shoot down that seemingly harmless negative thought as it germinates, we will find that there is much to rejoice about.

The farmer replied,"There is a pond near my house that is full of frogs ---millions of them. They all croak all night long and they are about to make me crazy!" So the restaurant owner and the farmer made an agreement that the farmer would deliver frogs to the restaurant, five hundred at a time for the next several weeks.
The first week, the farmer returned to the restaurant looking rather sheepish,with two scrawny little frogs. The restaurant owner said, "Well... where are all the frogs?" The farmer said, "I was mistaken. There were only these two frogs in the pond. But they sure were making a lot of noise!"

THE development of SCORE (Sarawak Corridor of Renewable Energy), both intensive and intrusive, will represent the last phase of a major development for Sarawak to push the state to a much higher level of development beyond the year 2020.
It will exploit the most important economic potentials, available in the central region, to push the state to the era of massive industrialisation to enable it to become an industrialised society on par with those in developed countries towards the year 2030.
Nevertheless, the development dictates a kind of politics where the government and the opposition should agree to speak on the same wavelength, at least on major issues, with the primary objective to involve the people in the process of the massive development of the region.
Hence, it is important for all elected representatives of the people to be bold enough to understand what will evolve in the next 20 years of economic planning toward 2020 and beyond. The state government, with the support of the federal government, has a perspective of the things that will be carried out during the period.
All the planning, the fundamental ones in particular, will move towards realising the objectives of Vision 2020.
However, the state cannot become part of a developed nation unless the people have the capacity to participate in the big transformation of economic management which entails transfer of technology in carrying out the task from the most difficult one, which is the development of Mukah as a Smart City, to that of providing better amenities to the people.
The following are excerpts from a keynote speech of Chief Minister Pehin Sri Abdul Taib Mahmud at a parliamentary discourse in Kuching on Oct 13:
I have been watching the political development in the country for the last one year, after the March general elections in particular, and seeing populist ideas surfacing very strongly.
In fact, they are becoming the most important features of the challenge being mounted by the opposition to score political points against the government. Before this, during the last 20 or 30 years, populist politics had never played a role in Malaysian politics for the simple reason that the people had been focusing on the development of the country.
Obviously, the populist politicians have been trying to exploit some of the social problems which have been overlooked or have not been tackled by the government in the common efforts to bring into proper perspective the socio-economic development in the state and country.
Immediately after Merdeka, the spirit of independence was sufficient to get the people to be more patient in waiting to enjoy the fruits of development.
However, because of rising expectations and exposures to things happening around the world, the people have become increasingly impatient with things being done for them, the state and the country.
In fact, the second Prime Minister of Malaysia, Tun Abdul Razak, took the opportunity to frame a political consensus whereby even the opposition should share with the government a certain political attitude — that is to minimise politics and give greater attention to the efforts of national development.
Of course, I share his view because what is the use of freedom and independence if the people are still struggling in poverty; they will not have enough dignity to enjoy their political freedom.
The Wonder Woman:
So what is SCORE? The Sarawak Corridor of Renewable Energy or simply known as SCORE, is one of the five regional development corridors being developed throughout the country. SCORE is a major initiative undertaken to develop the Central Region and transform Sarawak into a developed State by the year 2020. It aims to achieve the goals of accelerating the State's economic growth and development, as well as improving the quality of life for the people of Sarawak.
SCORE is what the people of Sarawak is waiting for. It will speed up our growth in economic sectors and creates a lot of job oppurtunity. This will eventually lead to the development of infrastructure and utilities. Simply said if the cards are right SCORE will definitely be our gold mine in the near future. In order to achive its goal we need to work and move as a team. Without unity in Sarawak we will find it will be hard to achive anything. With SCORE we will achive the goal of balanced development, and a general improvement in income levels and quality of life in the State.
Hopefully the people of Sarawak will realize what our leaders are planning now for our better future. If we do not realize it soon, SCORE would be just a dream and a waste of a lot of money.

But now, I believe my nightmare is just about to turn into reality. PBB was suddenly being accused of bullying other component parties in Sarawak? The Former Parti Rakyat Sarawak (PRS) information chief, Baginda Minda recently said that PRS had been bullied by PBB in the past election, and as many would feel that this act is an echoing act to as what the Malaysia Chinese Association (MCA) had said about the United Malay National Organisation (UMNO).
To me personally, PBB might be the biggest political party in Sarawak (of course laaa…since all the Bumiputras name it the Malays, Melanaus, Bidayuhs, Ibans, Kelabit, Kenyah, Kayans, Orang Ulu and many others were united under one group in this party) but this does not mean that PBB is bullying anybody from others parties.
Here I quote an article by Dato’ Peter Minos :
“Everyone in Sarawak can see that PBB has stretched all out to accommodate its political partners in the State BN. This can be seen by the sharing powers, of the giving of ministerial positions among the BN partners and of making decisions that do not hurt anyone”
In his article, he also urged people of Sarawak not to compare PBB with UMNO as he explained that the population pattern in Peninsular is completely different from that in Sarawak, which makes applying the Peninsular political policy wouldn’t work in Sarawak.
So I leave this to all bloggers out there to think wisely before any assumption is made. Lastly, again a profoundly witty quote from Dato’ Peter Minos :
“ People must not compare apples with durians. There are to types of fruits. It does not make sense to compare”

Abdul Taib Mahmud is Sarawak current Chief Minister and had been involve in Sarawak politics since 40 nearly 50 years back. When you look at Sarawak now, you can see the progress and the development that we had achived throughout those years. Honestly I would say, if it was someone else beside our Pehin, Sarawak wouldn't come this far. To be a politician, to have just money and power is never enough, you need to get the approval from the citizens, the people's trust, have a heart that is as tough as stone, never know the meaning of giving up on your people, and finally of course to have a great vision and dreams to share with your people. This I believe is what our Pehin is made of. Without it Sarawak wouldn't come this far and he himself wouldn't still be our Chief Minister untill today.
This is the historical event:
It was May 1963, Abdul Taib Mahmud, already a qualified lawyer, found himself in the Attorney General's office in Kuching. The young Melanau lawyer had been assigned to draft a law pertaining to the salary scheme for a historic occasion - the formation of the Federation of Malaysian states, Sarawak included.
As Taib was drafting the proposed salary scheme of the State's cabinet ministers, a strange premonition overcome him as he mused: "Could I be drafting my own future salary scheme?"
Taib dismissed it as wishful thinking. Only 27, he was prepared for anything but knew that the chances of him being elected into the new cabinet were remote.
"I didn't stand a chance because the elections had just been completed and it was too soon for me. And anyway, I was too young for politics. But somehow at that moment, I had a strange feeling that something big was about to happen in my life."
This intuition would soon become reality, when on July 22, Taib found himself at the Astana, across the Sarawak River, standing before the Governor, Tun Abang Haji Openg, and about to be sworn in as a nominated assemblyman. At that moment, he felt the same feeling he had two months earlier. Destiny, somehow, had led him by the hand into politics.
Unlike some politicians, Taib had his ideals. If he entered politics, he wanted to serve as humble and obedient servant of the people. As an Honourable member of the August house, Taib noted that some people were in politics for their own personal gain and ambition. He expressed his disappointment and warned:
"People who entered politics just to ascend into higher and higher office will not have a happy political career. Nothing less than being Number One would give them satisfaction. On the other hand, if we are moved by desire to serve, satisfaction comes every time we help people."

A failure means you’ve put forth some effort. That’s good. Failure gives you an opportunity to learn a better way to do it. That’s positive. A failure teaches you something and adds to your experience. That’s very helpful. Failure is an event, never a person; an attitude, not an outcome; a temporary inconvenience; a stepping-stone. Our response to it determines just how helpful it can be.

“Be careful on how you list names on your cell phone! This lady has changed her habit of how she lists her contacts list on her mobile phone after her handbag was stolen.
Her handbag which contained her mobile phone, credit card, purse etc was stolen one day. 20 minutes later when she called her Hubby, from a pay phone telling him what had happened. Hubby says 'I've just received your sms text asking about our Pin number. I replied a little while ago.
They rushed down to the bank, the bank staff told them all the money was already withdrawn. The pickpocket had actually used the stolen hand phone to text 'hubby' in the contact list and got hold of the pin number. Within 20 minutes he had withdrawn all the money from the bank account”
So the lesson here is:
Do not disclose the relationship between you and the people in your contact list. Avoid using names like Home, Honey, Hubby, Sweetheart, Sayang, Dad, Mum etc... And very importantly, when sensitive info is being asked through texts, CONFIRM by calling back. Also, when you're being texted by friends or family to meet them somewhere, be sure to call back to confirm that the message came from them. If you don't reach them, be very careful about going places to meet 'family and friends' who text you. Signing out. TheWonderWoman

The case was the youth was stabbed in the chest without mercy during a gang fight at the Kuching Waterfront last Saturday. The teenager was believed to be stabbed by a knife by a group of about 10-15 youths. Kuching Waterfront was originally built as a tourist attraction and for publics usage for recreational purposes has now turned into the “black alley”. Is that so?
In my opinion, the government together with the local authority should look into this matter seriously and try to come up with effective solutions to prevent gangsterism among our society. One of many suggestions would be to create or organize more programs focusing on youths. Perhaps Rakan Muda could refresh our memories on the said programs for the sake of our future generations.

Shoe Trend #1: Statement Shoes
No longer just supporting and complementing an outfit, these type of shoes are making a statement of their own. Shoe designers have had enough of their limelight being sapped by the "It-Bags" and are now fighting back with eye catching creations that exude confidence and command attention.
Gladiator sandals are the ultimate shoe trend for this season. Once relatively neutral, these sandals are receiving additional flair with extra straps and sky high heels.
Stabilizing neutrals combined with pops of brighter colors to create unique, distinctive looks are the basis for a great simple wardrobe. Look for an emphasis this season on citrus colors such as orange, yellow and lime, especially if they are bordering neon. Hot pink and turquoise are also favourites.
There’s something about platforms that makes us crave hot temperatures and a stylish outfit. Team them with a flowy maxi dress for added height, or a shift mini dress for endless legs and a look that will turn heads your way.
Peep toes show off your perfect manicure, they are less confining than regular pumps, easy to wear and very stylish.
Shoe Trend #5: Wedges
Wedges are the ideal choice for adding height without having to sacrifice comfort. Discover sky-high options, gladiator styles and updated versions of last year’s trends.

So sempena Hari Raya hari yang mulia ini, let me share with all of you out there a very useful hands-on experience for you to ponder. It’s about my latest darling and madly crave thing off all time-THE BAG HANGER!!!
The bag hanger is a very tiny little thing but brings big offer to its users especially the ladies. The person responsible in inventing this gadget is superbly brilliant and simply genius!!! And should be awarded with the inventer of the year award I supposed.
Ok so this is how it works. I’m sure all of you beautiful ladies out there are aware that the bigger your handbag is, the better it be nowadays right. Correct me if I’m wrong, but how many of you would agree with me that these over-sized handbag not just give you the edge of being fashionably sexy and elegant, it also give you the extra satisfaction to be able to stuffed your bag with as many items as possible, from your mobile phones or PDAs, your iPod, your big sunnies, your bottle water, your lip balm, your facial blotters, your tissues, your pressed powder and many other things that women do carry in their bags. The only drawback of these over-sized handbags is the problem you will faced when you need to eat!!! Imagine this, you’re sitting at your table getting ready to enjoy your meal…and there it is your over-sized handbag place uncomfortably on top of your lap. So where should you put it? You can’t just put it on the table as it would be rude. Nor put it on the empty chair next to you because it may be snatch by people walking by. So where should you put it?
The answer is none other than the Bag Hanger. The bag hanger is a gadget you use to hang your handbags. It has a strong magnetic strip underneath it that holds the gadget to the table. And even if the table is not made of metal, you can still use it as the shape it was made somehow able to cling the hanger towards the table.
Here’s my fav bag hanger that I got free from Charles & Keith @ The Spring, Kuching. Spend RM260 and be a member, and it all yours… Signing Out. TheWonderWoman
