Most expensive milk in Malaysia?

31 December, 2009 | Written by Patchay at 8:45 PM in

A bottle of 2L Pura Milk (from Australia) cost RM13.99 in Malaysia.

It's freaking expensive when we pay only a few dollars in Australia.

Happy New Year 2010, folks!!!

When I was 21

17 December, 2009 | Written by Patchay at 12:27 AM in , ,

I did 21 things when I was 21.


I graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Accounting and Finance.


I invented spaghetti bolognese (beef) with sliced bacon. Trust me, this is not too bad.

Overall, my cooking skills went up and came down, and then I stopped altogether ever since I came home.


I watched one of the world's largest fireworks in Sydney. Close to 1 million people witnessed the spectacular and in terms of turnout it was probably larger than the one in New York City (due to economic crisis?).


I did my first ever forest hiking at Blue Mountains National Park. The local breeze vanished the summer heat from my memory - as it was raining throughout the return journey and I was soaking wet.


I experienced 48C heat wave in South Australia. Despite the sweltering condition, I was touring Adelaide City all by foot because the public transport was suspended for a few days.


I was on the flight 5 times within a period of 4 weeks. With AirAsia, I hope I could fly more often and longer distance this coming year.


I packed and left Brisbane for good. It was a difficult decision for me but I had not much choice but to seek my career back home.


I made Singapore my second home. Most of family members had moved southwards to Singapore and it was obvious for me to be somewhere near them.


I became an uncle for the third time. Everybody say Hi to little Sam!


I shopped alone in an almost abandoned mall. It was not surprising, as much as I wanted to explore the hidden secrets there that is probably the four seasons Quattro club.


I video-conferenced in Bloomberg. Surrounded by sophisticated equipments and being hosted by Mr Adrian Valenzuela, it was most unfortunate that I did not appear on "Bloomberg Live" with Haslinda Amin (lol).


I attended fifteen "BIG" graduate interviews during this time of economic crisis. Met many great people along the way.


I visited a farm for the first time. My agricultural working visit included a large feedmill, a modern broiler house (chicken farm), slaughtering factory and a giant freezer room.

I learnt that the chickens sold in Tesco were well fed but may not be fresh all the time.


The feeling of being treated and respected like a General Manager is very nice.


I upgraded my weblog to Patchay.Com, played Facebook and became addicted to it, and received my first Nuffnang cheque.


Unbelievably, I signed up for gym (and lessons) for the first time.


My write-up entitled "Kuala Lumpur Real Estate Roundup 2008-2012" was applauded many times over. From journalists to marketing people, I've been contacted for information related to properties. I hope to become a freelance magazine contributor next year.


I went up to the 61st floor (non-public area) of Petronas Twin Tower. The view is awesome from my room.


I had my first colleagues gathering.


I ate, and worked on Saturday, both for the first time in Hard Rock Cafe (I was there for 2 weeks as their external auditor). Lamely called "Batu Keras Kafe" when translated to Malay.


I attended the 1st Annual Young Corporate Malaysians Summit. Bumped into Tan Sri Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah, lunched on the same table with Omar Mustapha (managing partner of Ethos & Co) and shook hand with Datuk Johan Raslan (chairman of PricewaterhouseCoopers Malaysia).

Goodbye 21. Today I turned 22 years old.

Coincidentally, I would like to wish my Dad Happy Birthday too !!!
