A Thursday Potpourri

Kuala Lumpur may not be as expensive as Tokyo or London but things here are getting to be pretty costly. And if you take the bus to work, there's more bad news as bus fares will become higher Sept 1..

RapidKL raises bus fare from Sept 1 by 100 percent but those who opt for monthly pass will get betweeen 60 and 80 percent discount.

Perfumes make great gifts. Unfortunately, not all perfumes do what they are supposed to do and not all perfumes are safe these days as some office workers found out in Fort Worth, Texas. 34 hospitalized after co-worker sprays perfume.

There has been a lot of hype about going organic or rather eating organic food over conventional food. You may be surprised that studies show that Organic food is no healthier.

Organic or conventional, here are 101 Simple Salads for the Season that you can try out.

Finally, hope you are enjoying your summer. Hey, it's a great day for digging ponds.. or landscaping your garden. Psst..don't forget a place for that hammock..


  1. Oh, yeah. I am one of those people who are sensitive to chemicals. I cannot tolerate perfumes - they make me gag.

    I'm enjoying water melon this summer.

    Yummy salads! :)

    I can't stand those perfumes that smell really heavy duty. I prefer light ones that don't overpower.

  3. PandaB, strong perfumes make me dizzy. Air fresheners in cars make me woozy too.

    Enjoy your watermelon. We are still at durians. Have you tried this king of Malaysian fruits that probably need bottles of perfume to rid the smell of? LOL!

    Mei Teng, they look yummy, don't they?

    You get all kinds of fragrances in the office, don't you? I remember I once smelt Harpic when a co-worker breezed by. She paid a tidy sum for that bottle too. Sigh.
