Window Replaced… Choice Made.. More Travel!

I replaced my window on Monday afternoon, it took quite a while as there was a small but deep dent where they had used something to rip the window out and smash the corner and it was raining..

The total cost was RM880, a nice number…but shit almost 1k to replace the fscking window!

That’s one of the disadvantages of having a 3 door car, the rear windows are thick and curved and cost a small fortune..

Have to replace my camera now too, I’ve decided I’ll get the D200, it’s a solid camera and it should last me a good 2-3 years so I think it’s worth a bit of extra investment.

Nikon D200


Imagine if everyone from the last post who commented gave me RM10, I’d have more than enough already 😀

I’m still a bit depressed, but still it’s only material and everything can be replaced/fixed. No one was hurt and nothing intagible was lost.

But yah if anyone wants to make donations to my new camera fund feel free!

Let’s all learn the lesson anyway, lot’s of reports have been made about thefts and car break-ins in the SS2 area, so be very wary, people’s cars have been broken into just for a nasi lemak in a black bag as someone thought it was valuable..Cameras and laptops have been stolen in seconds outside ATM machines and at petrol stations whilst people paid.

Criminals are desperate and ruthless, please don’t give them a chance like I did as they will take it.

I’ll be off to Philippines AGAIN on Monday for about a week I think, not sure if I’ll get to do anything interesting this time 🙂

Will charge the old powershot A70 and get him rolling!

    “Imagine if everyone from the last post who commented gave me RM10, I’d have more than enough already :D”

    You say mah…i am more than happy to give it to ya, you know?

    But glad everything is over……take care and never left any electrical item in the car. Not even a one dollar note. Cheers

    ‘”Imagine if everyone from the last post who commented gave me RM10, I’d have more than enough already 😀 “‘

    Can I donate it in Tim Tams ?

    Sure, it won’t help buy the camera, but you can drink coffee threw tim tams for that nice coffee, chocolatey taste.

    Actually, I have a fear that the cost to convert Aussie dollars to RM will be more than RM10. 🙂
    [It cost me $4.50 to convert AUD$ into English Pounds the other night … is that more than RM10?]

    Anyway, I’m sure you earn a lot more than the rest of us, I can’t even afford a good digital camera … yet. 🙂

    Philippines-awesome. Hope they don’t break into your car again.

    the last time i got into some shit like this, i replaced the perdana’s back mirror for RM50, RM20 for the workmanship … the mirror was from some chop shop … mitsubishi marks on it, beats having the old protonmark on it right …

    but the shitty part was the tinted glass part, was fucking hard to get the same color and all, as i had two layers some weird V-kool green and a some weird black Aircool under it …

    it remain untinted until i sold it …

    Shaolin, interested in blogging for Channel [V]? please reply ASAP, this is NOT a joke. Hope to hear from you soon.

  15. kamkuey September 28, 2006 at 10:33 am #

    Hey… sorry to hear of your misfortune.

  16. J September 28, 2006 at 10:45 am #

    60 commenters x RM10 each = total of RM600.

    I think you need us to be much more generous and give you at least RM100 each, right?

  17. ShaolinTiger September 28, 2006 at 11:12 am #

    Thanks all, had a few offers via e-mail too. Really I appreciate it but there are plenty of people who are needier than I, so I’d prefer people give to charity and just do something positive, perhaps in the future people can buy some of my photos to support my work 🙂

    Dabido: I love tim tams, make sure it’s the caramel ones though haha.

    sexypurny: Thanks I’ll arrive on Monday, maybe I’ll get to see Bryan again.

    James: Yah me too, expensive business, I’m glad now I never bought an expensive stereo for my car.

    earl-ku: Same problem for me…I’m either gonna have to leave it untinted or have the whole car done again which another RM600-800.

    Matthew: I’ll e-mail you.

    Kelvin: Congrats me after I got it dude 😉

    J: Ah bugger, perhaps I need the money for maths lessons!

  23. Dabido (Teflon) September 29, 2006 at 8:27 pm #

    I was in the Tim Tam aisle at the supermarket today. They have STRAWBERRY ONES and BLACK FOREST FANTASY ONES! YUM!

    The Strawberry ones go to help Breast Cancer research. My mother bought a packet. I was going to photograph it, but she and my youngest brother have already eaten them! Waaah! lol

  24. ShaolinTiger October 1, 2006 at 8:29 pm #

    Patrick the Pup: Yah it’s a beauty!
