A few years back, we’ve seen billboards all around Hat Yai announcing that Hat Yai will be secured with CCTVs all over the city. I couldn’t imagine how that can be made possible since the city is quite big. But just last month, I got a big surprise when I noticed that most of the streets and corners of the city have indeed been equipped with CCTVs. As a resident of the city, indeed I feel safer and secure knowing that there are ‘eyes’ everywhere and those planning to do any crimes can truly be watched and found out.
As mentioned in one of my posts, we’ve been looking forward to another OTOP event in the city. These are the events when products and delicacies from different provinces are being sold. Ou family loves these OTOP fair because it’s the time when we can get to taste different delicacies and see different local products without going very far. Sometimes they also have a lot of freebies during these fairs, from free taste test of the desserts to free cigars and souvenir samples.
But unfortunately, we just missed one OTOP event that had been held at the local university early this week. The dates kinda slipped our mind and we were also busy with other things. Well, ’till next time OTOP!
We’ve finally redeemed our free German made knife from Big C Extra. This was the second time they were offering these freebies but we were not able to claim our freebie last year since we were out of town during the redemption period. This time around, we’ve collected a total of 20 stickers and we got the medium sized knife. The knife seems to be of premium quality. I haven’t used mine yet, it’s still safely inside the box. Somehow I don’t feel like using it yet.
For the meantime, I still have time to collect more stickers since the promotion is still going on. I might buy a small coffee maker with warranty and appliance service next week, so I guess I can still get the kitchen shears.
Whenever we go on a road trip to Malaysia, we never miss stopping by at the Burger King outlet at the ‘jejantas’ R&R nearing Kuala Lumpur. I love the burgers at Burger King and they don’t have any outlets here in south Thailand. I remember seeing Burger King in Krabi and Chiang Mai airport but I found it too expensive! With the set meals in Malaysia, BK’s ( and even the rest of the fastfood chains like McDonald’s and Pizza Hut) really more affordable there.
Anyways, so there’s my Whooper Jr. … looking at this now just makes me drool…
Our daughter loves listening to music. Since, we can’t afford to give her an iPod, we thought of giving her an MP3 player instead for her birthday.
It was quite amusing when I shopped for her gift. I went around the shop several times looking for the MP3 player, but I couldn’t find any. Instead, I saw all the latest iPads and tablets. After searching in vain, I finally resorted to asking the salesperson. Fortunately, he brought be to the corner and there was the MP3 player places beside the USB broadband. Hmmm.. that’s why I didn’t notice that earlier. He then told me that this is the last MP3 player that they had. Yes, there were no other brands to choose from , not even a color to choose from. It was only then that I realized that MP3 players are definitely nearing its end! lol! It’s a good thing though that we got the last unit. I don’t know what I could have gotten for her instead. She won’t appreciate getting savarez guitar strings at Guitar Center yet since she’s not so much into playing the guitar for now.
But anyways, even if the MP3 gadget seemed almost obsolete, our li’l girl was still so happy with her gift.
