For a good cause

I'm not sure whether you're aware, but there's a voluntary team set up here in Taiping about 4 months ago, called the Pasukan Keselamatan Sukarela Taiping Perak(太平自愿治安队). The purpose of the team is to help police in reducing house break-ins and thieves cases in Taiping. Until today, the team has more than 700 members consist of chinese youngsters/gentlemen, even ladies as well.
TP members will patrol around Taiping and report to each and every member if they spot anything suspicious.

There was an exclusive interview with the team leader last week, check out ChinaPress Saturday (21/8/2010) edition ok.

To become a voluntary TP member, all you have to is to pay RM 380 to get this walkie talkie set, there'll be an unique number assigned for you (and you can request own lucky number provided the number is available). all communication using the walkie talkie must be of official purpose only.

thanks to the prompt actions and helps, they have successfully overcome numerous thieve cases in Taiping! I hope with their helps, police will gain more man power to bring peace and harmony to our beloved Taiping town.
of course whatever missions they involved, safety always come first!

their head office is situated at Kampung Boyan, same row with Weng Sang shop.

  5. Hi Hayley, my time too during the '60s and '70s there was a spate of home invasions as well the notorious 'orang minyak'....and the government formed similar to this Taiping one, but called 'Rukun Tetangga' and only men from each house in locality take turns patrolling the streets, roads where we live. Up to 4.30am.

    But still the robberies continued.
    And I was one of the unfortunate or fortunate to manage to almost catch the orang minyak too...he tried to break into my house, but I had laid a booby trap for him, and he got cup up very badly too, but got away.

    You take care and have a nice day, Lee.

  6. goldflower86 & HwiYee, haha, but somehow we still need police effort la.. But hopefully, with the helps of this voluntary team, thieve cases would reduce...

    Lee, yes, I know Rukun Tetangga as well. But this one involve people from all around the town..
    Thanks for dropping by~

Just a short post before the weekend arrives! =)

I've been drinking this collage drink for about a week already.....

It's from this brand, 满点肌, a product from Japan

10 bottles for the price of RM145

According to the SA, this collagen drinks will make your skin flawless after consuming for a period of time. And now after a week of consuming it, I did not see any significant improvement on my face. But one thing I realise is that my nose has become smoother and less blakcheads! Not sure is it the results of this drinks, but to me it's still a good news! =)

Anyway, my main purpose wasn't to buy this collagen drinks at first, I was looking for the eye mask actually, after reading the positive comments from Female magazine. 6 eye mask for the price of RM 155

The SA told me if I buy their collagen drinks, I'd entitled a 40% discount for the eye mask (yea, business tactics) So that's why I ended up buying the collagen drinks (which I never had before, cause I was worried…

Can't think of a title now...

2D1N Hatyai trip

I have been to Hatyai many times and I am not bored of it yet, haha!! xD
It's one of my favorite place to go, I mean considering the fact that I can't really travel oversea at the moment (no money and no time).
But traveling to Hatyai is still consider 'oversea' la right? 😆 It's just that we go there by car instead of plane.... Just 2 hours plus to reach kastam, almost like from Taiping to KL.

We had a short getaway to Hatyai last month, it was 2 days after the Songkran festival. We tagged Aden and Toby along so hubby suggested to avoid that festival.

Journey was smooth from Taiping all the way to the kastam, just the queue at the kastam was a bit tiring. We managed to check in early, lucky!

We stayed at Grand Pink hotel, I simply love this hotel because the room is big and clean! Staff service is nice too! Highly recommended, heard it's been refurnished lately. It's located next to Lee Garden Plaza so it's easy to find!
I also love the spacious bathro…
