Heart Defibrillator

At Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA), I saw this strange looking red hearts signage and upon closer look, it is an emergency heart defibrillator. I do hope that there are enough medical officers among the passengers that can fully utilized the gadget. For non medical personnel such as me, I can only look at the gadget and not sure on how to use it.

As of now, the only concerned of the respective workers are falling from the tower instead of being electrocuted because the line is not being power up yet. They are in the process of connecting all of the towers from one end to the other.

Fixing and climbing the tower is just as easy as doing other jobs for these workers.

Read This if You are the Owner of Vehicles Older than 10 Years Old

Antique Car
Picture above shows one of antique cars still roaming the road. The owner of the car must be very much relieved to hear about current ruling by Central Bank to insurance agencies.

Recently, Bank Negara Malaysia (Malaysian Central Bank) announced that the public will be able to obtain motor cover from all general insurers and their branches as well as at Pos Malaysia and its branches nationwide with immediate effect. The measure is necessary to ensure that all motorists will obtain access to motor insurance coverage.

Thus, all general insurers are required to provide motor cover to all motorists including those "displaced vehicles" which mainly comprise private vehicles exceeding 10 years old and motorcycles currently underwritten by the Malaysian Motor Insurance Pool (MMIP).

Thus vehicles owners can now have the opportunity to pay normal market premium rates and will not be subjected to the loading imposed on high risk vehicles.

Vehicles' owner only have to undergo annual road worthiness checks at Puspakom if the vehicles are deemed to be of high-risk to the insurer. This measure will also ensure that the vehicles will not be the caused of accident on the road due its poor and dilapidated condition.

Happy Mother's Day

Wish my mom and all mothers a happy mother's day. We appreciate you for all of the burden and hardship that you have been entrusted until today.

Let us be grateful to people who make us happy, they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.

A mother is always there when trials and tribulations fall upon us; when adversity takes the place of prosperity;

A mother still clings to us when trouble thickens around us; she cause peace to return to our hearts.

So lets us all treasure our mother before she is gone forever.

To all mothers round the world thank you.
