Spend nearly the whole day at the Ipoh Main Post Office. There are 10 traffic summonses to settle for the two cars and today is the final settlement day. There are long queues of restless and frustrated souls at the Traffic Police Department and the Main Post Office.

Just can’t blame anybody but myself. I guessed this time my laidback attitude again cost me dearly… Lots of expensive time and money...

In summation, it is always best to pay off the traffic summonses early.

Spending more than five hours waiting and in between agony and anxiety, boredom faces and systems down, my mind was wondering about the many things that should have been done and attended more prudently and intelligently…so much for an eye opener and regret.

It would definitely be better off if I had been more discipline be it driving cars or going about my life.

I guessed my Pa was right all along. Discipline is the bridge between setting mere goals and real accomplishments.

(Sigh)…Too much at stake right now.

Save time, save money and save all the hassle…and save for the best.

There is no two way about it. I have to change right now…for me, for the better future and for the loved ones around me.

Received a call from LAT on Wednesday. We talked about his coming 'LAT KAMPUNG BOY, The Musical' to be staged at the Panggung Sari, Istana Budaya (National Theater) on March 16th to April 3rd 2011.

He was pretty excited yet cautious and nervous about the public response. I told him that everything should be fine. I also told him that I have watched Awie performed on stage in 'Cuci2 the Musical' and the actor/singer performance was superb then. I'm sure he will perform just as credible as LAT in 'Lat Kampung Boy, the musical'.

A lot of people are anxiously waiting for the show. In fact, our whole family and the whole gang of his Ipoh buddies are going down to Kuala Lumpur to lend support. Was told by LAT, our friend, Rizal Pakeeza is trying to make arrangements to ferry the Ipoh contingent.

What's next? That was the question lingering in my mind. Yes, after the musical, what is the next project line up for LAT, the iconic world-famed cartoonist?

This man has done a fantastic job in putting Perak, his home state and Malaysia on the world map, yet not much was given back by the state to honour his works. I'm still praying for the best to come…

If only LAT exists in Europe or USA, his work would have filled a museum and deserved the creation of a theme park.

As if reading my mind, he voluntarily explained that he was having a meeting with a top Perak state executive councilor the next day to kick start his long stalled pet project...let us just called it, LAT's signature project.

The rest…well, it is privy between two good friends.

I have quite a reasonable collection of watch boxes, be it plastic, leather, wood and lacquer. Some boxes are still nicely wrapped waiting to be filled up despite my rather handsome collections.

Nonetheless, this one box is rather special for it carries the ‘Longines’ brand name. It has spaces to fit in five watches as well as spaces for cufflinks and rings.

The only dilemma is I do not collect rings or cufflinks…

Maybe, it is a hint from my dear friend who presented me the box…for me to also pick up another line of collections…hahaha.

Nope, watchwise I'll be better off maintaining my status quo as as a loyal fan, collector and retailer...

339. Two Police Reports Lodged Pertaining Fake Letters From Perak MB

IPOH, Malaysia- The Perak Menteri Besar's special officer Datuk Azhar Ahmad Monday lodged two police reports concerning the case of forged documents bearing the name of the Menteri Besar and state departments that were used by certain quarters to cheat people.

The first report was lodged at Pantai Remis police station at 6am and the second at Sungai Senam police station here three hours later.

Speaking to reporters at his office here Monday, Azhar said the reports were lodged after he received two letters, with the Perak Menteri Besar's letterhead and purportedly signed by the Menteri Besar's special officer, on approval for state government-owned agricultural land.

"I never signed any letters of approval for state government-owned land... the letters are fake and intended to defame our officials and probably to tarnish the reputation of the menteri besar," he explained.

He said the first letter, dated Dec 9 last year, involved approval for 324ha of agricultural land in Kenering, while the second letter, dated Jan 13 this year, involved about 400ha land in Pengkalan Hulu.

Azhar said both letters were fake and ill-intended as he had no power whatsoever to approve land applications.

"Hence, I call on all individuals who had received such a letter or have fallen victim to the syndicate to lodge a police report, or seek confirmation from the state government before making any payment," he said.

Last week, Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Dr Zambry Abdul Kadir also called on the police to investigate whether there was an inside job in the case, which was first detected last year.

It was three Thursdays ago…In between appointments in Kuala Lumpur and armed with a couple of hours free time, we managed to roll into the Pavilion Shopping Complex hopping from one watch gallery to another. Haven’t been to this place for quite a while and there is just so much to see. So, have to be quite selective.

The Swiss Watch Gallery carries quite a wide selection of interesting IWCs, Grahams and JLCs. Of all the exhibits, the JLC crystal Atmos clocks really fascinated us. With a price tag of RM 72K and RM80K each before discount, any of the two would definitely be ideal to grace a collector's display cabinet. Just adore the pieces and would love to bring any of the two atmos, home except that the budget did not really permit then.

The TW Steel watch kiosk displayed models that were quite familiar especially those already featured in Lt Watch Gallery. Still, we spent some time there just to compare prices. Of course we came out smiling because we offer more attractive prices.

Wata Time Gallery, being one of the largest watch retail outlets offered bountiful of choices. Two U-Boats models were very impressive, reasonably price and worth considering. We might drop by again in the next trip to pick up one unit for the collections.

The stop at the Red Army watch gallery turned out to be no ordinary pit stop. It was a real long stop. There were just so many fascinating Russian models on display. Granted, we have never before given a second thought to Russian made watches although a close friend of ours have a good selection of Poljot, Aviator, Pobeda and Raketa in his collections.

There were so many fabulous and magnificent Russian made models to choose from. One can easily bust the credits cards and the bank balances in exchange for these gorgeous, big and busty models to take home.

Moving my eyes and hands stroking from one model to another, I was mesmerized by this one particular creation of Alexander Shorokoff. Just could not take my eyes of this beautiful creature…stunning, elegant, poised and looking ready to be taken home…Alas, this beau was only for display and not to be sold.

The face with two popping eyes devoid of unnecessary accessories and make-up overdo was so clean and pure.

The back is very transparent with neat engine and magnificent movement with orderly colour tone.

The crown is signed and sealed.

The black leather strap is just fitting.

I was just bowled over… I could not care less. Just wanted to possess the model and bring home and stamped as mine.

Pleaded with Awie, the Salesperson… A phone call to the gallery’s owner and upon my introduction, this master creation by Alexander Shorokoff is mine for the keep. Oh yes, I know the owner from a previous visit. We had then a very fruitful conversation especially after introducing my blog to him.

Securing this Russian beau, a limited edition of only 610 pieces created in Alzenau and dedicated to the people of Alzenau, Frankfurt, Germany was pure excitement, especially so when this is the first Russian of course.

Say what? Of course I'm still excited about this encounter.

I'm praying hard for a more stunning beau with Russian connection to roll and flow into my life...and that would just pure blessed because it would be God send!
