Finally, taking three days off starting 1st day of July to clear some leave and time doing personal stuff like doing laundry and a bit cleaning in my room as well getting my own bed freshen up which I haven't done a long time. ;) It was really a good sunny day yesterday and today.
During Ramadan month is a bit hard in Brunei when you can't dine in the restaurant. So my morning schedules are troublesome going out for window shopping if you can't have a nice morning breakfast. I don't like walking around having empty stomach. But I just too lazy to cook myself at home because I haven't stock up any breakfast type foods. I have been eating noodle almost every morning. Changing the food menu is a must.
I decided to drop by long awaited plan visit KB Sentral Shopping Centre this afternoon. Yeah, I know it's open quite a long time. However, some shops continue rushing renovate before the official grand opening this month. Got to be honest, nothing much to see other than restaurants and cinema. Even I don't really have many things to buy especially fresh fruits at Jaya Hypermart. Even-though there are some mobile shops around to check out, looking at the financial situation. Just go inside busy body and walk off. Actually I was planning to get Apple iPad Air, saw a shop selling and asked if I can purchase with credit card. Somehow, I notice seller tend to mark up higher unless you paid cash. Everyone knows, nowadays people hardly pay in cash.
As for online shopping, this month going to be my craziest purchase ever. The moment I started writing, I already just check out the comic books left hanging in the cart long time. It is disappointed knowing Attack On Titan volume 15 ran out of stock at Yesasia. There isn't any description listing regarding bundle something or any prize items, just normal release. Right now I am scratching my head and hopefully there will be restock. I also received promotion newsletter from Lego and Gunpla soon. How bad it going to cost me are just another question.

Never thought I would jump in buying life insurance when I don't really feel like getting one. However, with some changes and restriction made to the bank policy in Brunei for applying investment. I hardly able to think of a way securing safe financing in the bank not unless you have at least 100k lying around when I hardly able to save 1k in a year. What option should I look into? Life Insurance.
This is the simplest way to financing and securing your own future saving especially after retirement. Why now? Well, considering when I started working just earning $400.00 per month. There's no way I am able to pull that off paying life insurance per month. Only until today my pay are stable enough to move forward with the plan because the car loan have remaining three more years to go and looking at my current age. It is time adding extra accident plan and finance into it.
As far I remember, the agent said it was premium insurance (accident + life). Yes, it going to cost quite a bit more and cheaper idea going with this plan. If you never buy before, there are indeed some different between the price working in office and in construction area. I asked the agent listed me in construction zone because I do sometimes involving site office and in constructions. It's just a way having some peace of mind in case shit happen no matter if companies have strict safety policy or not.

Yeah, again and again not doing any update post this month. I spend most of the time now motivating on work out and jogging to get myself in healthy good shape 4-5 times a week. Even my sleeping hour adjusted as early 9.30PM after watching one hour shows. So the mindset about blogging simply put, already forgotten when the body automatically hits bed time alarm.
Now the toys, I still trying to get rid some Transformers MSIB that I don’t need or interest keeping. However, the selling prices in the market are entirely screwed over. Just this month when I visit Toy R Us shop in the capital. Few Transformers toys like Voyager Sound Wave (Blaster) were sold for $25.00 (BND) each and generation Shockwave $12.00 (BND) each for clearing sake. My mind was eventually blasted by it seeing how bad the Transformers market has become. Selling your MSIB or used toys are now harder at Facebook. The competition is terrible slashing between more than 60%-80% for complete loose even for MSIB toys. The result of this actually affect the resales value no matter if its great new or loose condition. I'm not really desperate getting back the money. Recovering lesser than what you paid for doesn’t worth it despite we face bad financially. My MSIB price will remain as it is following the local market or online price.
Well, as for the plastic kits, nothing change at my end. Bandai screw the builders by offering too many P-Bandai exclusive and limited kits this year. I actually went crazy with Pale Rider (ground type) by buying five of them and all three Jegan variation from Gundam F91 movie. The RGM-89A2 Jegan Type-A2 (General Revil) version was announced last month so this is definitely going to be high priority wish-list. Hopefully they might consider reissue the ReZEL Type-C (GR) and Jegan D type again. The build fighters Cathedral Gundam and Hi-Nu Gundam Influx also got me interested. As for now, I am looking forward finding ways to get RGM-89s Stack Jegan CCA-MSV version because I am too late to pre-order.

Well, my company happens to asked me clear some leave pile up last year so I wonder where to go. I’m not sure if I should visit Miri since almost more than two years never drive there despite only half an hour trip. But I am kinda not really interested and even cross my mind what am I suppose to find over there other than eating foods. Oh I forgot there are changes to the road direction over in Miri so I am going to get lost for a while.
My brother has asked me if I wanted to visit Japan in September. From what I am able to save in the bank today, wasn’t enough to cover the expenses in Japan, not to mention in Singapore itself. Sure, I got place to stay and save a lot. To be frank, I don’t really feel like traveling at all this year. With so much drama happening in Brunei and locals losing job in oil and gas industries, I need backup money around if anything should happen.
I got to say I really done a good job on saving. The past years are totally zero. Now I see something so it's good as long I continue cut the spending on toys and feel bitter every day unable to buy a house. Probably there will be more progress other than blowing the saving.
