Solat Hajat Perdana SBPIK...

MRC managing director handing over the notebook to the principal of SBPI Kuantan...


Friday September 12th, 2008 was an important day for us (MRC) and me especially, as that evening I was guest of honour (again) breaking fast with 600 students and their parents at their fully residential school at Bandar Indera Mahkota in Kuantan, Pahang. We then adjourned to the school's mosque for the special Perdana Prayers to seek blessings from Allah for the wellbeing of our children (except my children, none are schooling there..hehe) who will be sitting for the coming PMR and SPM exams. I gave a 4 minute highspeed train motivation speech and also handed a notebook and a desktop to the school as promised in my speech at their awards ceremony last year. It is a small donation on our part but I hope it will trigger other parents to come together and collectively contribute to the school via the PTA (Parent-Teacher Association). We also donated in cash, just a small token sum, to help pick up the tab for that evening's food bills. A most trying thing happened that evening, just before the maghreb solat. My driver left the car keys in the trunk of the car and closed it. Ya ya I phoned everywhere, AAM, my chaps in KL....eventually 'Nicholas Cage 60 minutes' of Kuantan came to the rescue..and I was RM200 poorer...uwaa .... juz to get the keys out so we can go home to Kuala Lumpur that same night...

Have you locked your keys in the car?

Does your car have remote keyless entry? This may come in handy someday! Good reason to own a cell phone: If you lock your keys in the car and the spare keys are at home, call someone at home on their mobile phone from your cell phone.

Hold your cell phone about a foot from your car door and have the person at your home press the unlock button, holding it near the mobile phone on their end. Your car will unlock. Saves someone from having to drive your keys to you. Distance is no object. You could be hundreds of miles away, and if you can reach someone who has the other "remote" for your car, you can unlock the doors or the trunk.
