Rise Up, the Dance

I have to lower my expectation when it comes to this dance that we will be presenting on Easter Celebration next month. From the way she taught us, I know she is not a dancer. She has experience doing aerobic but not in teaching a proper dance routine. I still go along with her but did try to improve the dance steps when she asked for my opinion. I was so happy that she informed us that she won't be around in 2 Sundays time and asked me to take over the practice session. I plan to teach everything back from the scratch and get everyone synchronize. Then I can happily go home and dream about good m audio oxygen 25 from guitar center. :)

Automatic Car Cannot Start. What to do?

When I was driving a manual car, if the car cannot start, we can jump jump start it by pushing the car then go into gear 2. Unfortunately, the same cannot be applied to an auto car. That was what happened to my Daihatsu Ascend 2 days after it came out of the workshop. We have to call the same mechanic to repair it and it cost us another RM150 to change the electronic/electrical part that is related to the ignition. Then later I discovered that my car alarm is not working anymore! We have to drive to the mechanic shop again the next day and the mechanic's assistant found that the alarm wire was disconnected. It was free of charge as the boss was not around. I do not trust this kind of mechanic. It happened to us often. Send for a repair, came home to more repairs to be done. I wonder whether the mechanic purposely spoil some parts so that they can get more business. :(

Dance Practice for Easter Celebration

I was recommended by the pastor of the church I am attending to join a dance for the Easter Celebration. We will dance to the song Rise Up (Dance Your Shoes Off). I was quite disappointed after attending the first practice. You see, I am a perfectionist to a certain extend. I started dancing through a professional dancers. I even thought some church members to dance for a church anniversary. So, my expectation of the dance instructor is quite high. She without knowing her steps! She said, "let's practice together" with a tab infront of her. I stood behind her, watching her learn the steps. It was such a waste of my time. I could be at the swimming pool at that time of the day with my children or writing about zildjian cymbal for my blog. The instruction video that she chose was not a good one either. I found a better one which is easier to follow with clear cut dance steps and counts but she does not like it. *sigh* What to do. I learned 80% of the steps and I'll try to help my fellow dancers during the practices then.

Daihatsu Ascend Drive Shaft

Money in, money out. I sent my Daihatsu Ascend for repair last Friday and it cost me RM699 to change the drive shaft! And the thing is, the mechanic can't find a new drive shaft for my car. The drive shaft came from a used spare part shop. Mechanic told me that my car is an imported car and the model has stopped production so can't find a new drive shaft. Another shocking new was, the drive shaft is under warranty for only 2 weeks. If after 2 weeks, I find faulty in it, I have to spend another RM699 to change to another used drive shaft. :(

Itinerary Pastor

We were at my shop just now to send some of the computers there and to set them up. After we are done, we went to the Mamak shop 2 doors away to have our dinner cum supper. Hubby met an acquaintance and his family there. He is an itinerary pastor. While waiting for my food to arrive, I overheard their conversation. He was asking hubby where to buy the rane mixer. He is scouting for one for one of the church that he often preaches. Since hubby has experienced working full time in church for 7 years, he gave him some tips on where to buy it and how to look for a good mixer.

Loan for Business

The fish are coming in but my net is not big enough to catch them. I need to get a bigger net or else, I'll lose the fish to other fisherman. But I do not have money now to buy a bigger net. I can wait a month or two to save from my income but in a month or two, someone else could have catch those fish. So, I resorted to borrowing from my dad. With his money, I am able to purchase 5 more used computers which is good enough for gaming. can't afford to buy new computers yet but the day will come when it can be done. :)

Musician at my shop

One of my customers plays the bagpipe. He often come to my shop to get me to look for bagpipe sheets to print then laminate. Once he asked me to help get him bagpipe sheet for wedding songs. That was a tough one because I am not familiar with bagpipe songs. He also plays the guitar and asked for my help to find guitar pedals are of high quality and affordable price. I showed him the rogue guitar pedals at guitar center. I am not sure whether he bought them or not.

His Blessing Overflows

Hubby prays for me every day before he leaves for work. One of his prayers is that God will bless the works of my hand. I believe. And His blessing is overflowing in my business. Almost every day I do not have enough gaming computers for my customers. I see more new faces. Sales has doubled up but I still do not have enough cash to add in more gaming computers. We are considering whether or not to borrow from my dad again.

Tools To Keep

The tools in my house are all kept in a cupboard where everything is chuck in there. To find a tool could mean taking everything out! I need to find 48" Draw slides so that I could arrange the tools neatly on another shelf which I can find any tool that I need to use easily. Then slide in back in so that everything is neat and tidy. No more screaming where did you put the saw? Where is the hammer? etc. Being a SAHM, tools come in handy when hubby is not around during the day if anything need fixing.

Computers for Blackshot

Praise God for His blessing, we are able to invest in 5 more used but with higher spec computers which Blackshot can be played on it. Since the boys know that my cc have Blackshot, more has been coming every day. And 5 computers aren't enough so we tried installing graphic card to 4 more computers and it works, Blackshot can be played on them. Now we have 9 computers with Blackshot. Even that, it is still not enough. Praying that God will continue to bless us and we will have the means to add more higher spec computers.
