Personal : Ramadhan al Mubarak is coming!!

Alhamdulillah, Ramadhan akan datang tak lama lagi. Rasa rindu bila dapat bertemu dengan Ramadhan kerana di bulan Ramadhan lah jiwa lebih tenang, lebih fokus dan lebih dekat dengan Allah S.W.T.

Semoga Ramadhan kali ini lebih baik dari sebelumnya =)

Personal: New coins.

Bank Negara Malaysia will be issuing new coins to mark the new Third Series of the Malaysian coins which will be available for circulation early next yearLaunched today by the Governor of Bank Negara Malaysia, the commemorative coins issued are in the denominations of 5 sen, 10 sen, 20 sen and 50 sen.

The new coins series draws inspiration from distinctive features that define the nation's rich culture and heritage. The design motifs were crafted in the form of nature, flora and fauna and traditional handicraft which is found in Malaysia.

This series of new coins are smaller and lighter making its more user-friendly for the public. The yellow and silver coloured coins and the edge designs enable the public and also the visually impaired to identify and distinguish the different denominations. The new series of coins embodies the latest advancements in minting technology which incorporates improved counterfeit resistance security features. The new metal alloy used for minting has enhanced durability against wear and corrosion.

Bank Negara Malaysia will make available 500,000 sets of the commemorative coins (Brilliant Uncirculated) comprising all the coin denominations with special packaging and to be sold in stages to the public at RM 10.00 per set.

Personal : Big car, big dream.

It always funny when we can see the reality of life. Today, I read an article regarding the story from a Jaguar Dealer. Although it looks funny but that is the reality!!

The Managing Director of Sisma Auto (Licensed Jaguar Dealer in Malaysia), Syed Hussain Syed Mohamed, 73, said that selling a Jaguar is not an easy task. Of course Jaguar owners put themselves at a 'higher level' than others and sometimes can be arrogant. There are many vehicles that can fetch higher price compared to Jaguar, but since it is handmade, it is touted to be more exclusive than premium brands like Mercedes and BMW.

He also shared a story of a MD of a company who had to cancel purchasing a brand new Jaguar because the Chairman of the company use a Mercedes Benz S Class!! The Chairman of that particular company did not want his reputation being damaged by the Jaguar brand eventhough the Merz has a higher price..

He also said that usually buyers of Jaguar did not go to the showroom by themselves but the car is sent to the doorstep of their house to be evaluated. What a rubbish!!

One more fact is the driver of Jaguar is not the owner itself. So do not be fooled if you see people coming out from the driver seat. The real owner usually seat at the back!! Haha

Sometimes you will think it is funny but that is the reality. =)
