“Successful people maintain a positive focus in life no matter what is going on around them. They stay focused on their past successes rather than their past failures, and on the next action steps they need to take to get them closer to the fulfillment of their goals rather than all the other distractions that life presents to them.”- Jack Canfield

I bought Arduino Starter Kits from Lazada. I bought it to teach my kids on programming from young age. Furthermore it is school holiday soon. So I want to expose them to new activities instead of just playing iPad, read books, play drums or gyms.
I did compare between Rasberry Pi & Arduino. From my findings Arduino is the easiest one especially for kids.
I bought 3 items.
1) Arduino UNO R3 Advance Beginner Learning Sensor Starter Kit v5
2) Arduino 4WD 2 Layer Smart Car Robot Chassis Kit Base Set
3) Arduino Range Finder Ultrasound Ultrasonic Sensor HC-SR04 HC SR 04
The Arduino Starter Kits comes with lots of electronics components such as LED, resistors, breadboard, light and temperature sensors, stepper motor, USB cable, LCD display and many more.
In total, I bought all the items for RM158++ and it arrived on time and in good conditions.
Before I can teach my kids, I need to learn first how to use Arduino. Surprisingly there is a lot of tutorial for beginners on the internet and lots of cool projects.
I bought one condominium at Windmill Upon Hills last year. I want to do AirBnb.
Interesting Places in Genting Highland
20th Century Fox Theme Park
Genting Premier Outlets
and few more.
Now my next concern what would be the occupancy rate of Genting Highland AirBnb.
To do that, I compare with Midhill condominium as it is already completed and similar concept with Windmill Upon Hills and owners already rent them out as AirBnb units.
I calculate how many days a unit is occupied in a month. A unit is occupied if on the day it is strike through.
Genting Highland AirBnb Occupancy Rate
Then I compiled few units and calculate average occupancy rate and I did it for few months.
Occupancy rate is still low around 35%, maybe 20th Century Theme is not yet opened.
Last September, 2018, suddenly my floor made a lot of cracking sound. It sounds like firecracker. I noticed that our living hall floor started to pop up.
The vinyl floor also popped up due the tiles floor.
I called my contractor asking for quotation to repair the popped tiles. The contractor said popped tiles happened due to low workmanship e.g not enough cement under the tiles (it produces hollow sound if you step on the tiles) or due the not enough cement glue during the mixture.
Steps Repairing The Pop Tiles
1) Remove the Popped Tiles
2) Pour New Cement mixed with Cement Glue
3) Install New Tiles
4) Wait Till It Dries & Make the floor flat and smooth using patching compound
After finished eating dinner, I was putting my plate to the sink.
Seeing that Deef then switched off the dining light because he knew that I don’t like to waste electricity.
I was moved because no need to tell him to assist me.
Me: Thanks Deef for switching off the light.
Deef: Your welcome papa.

Alhamdullillah my books finally arrived. I was worried that I woudn’t receive the books because it happened to me last time 15 years back when I ordered my first book at Amazon. My mistake when it didn’t arrived 15 years back I didn’t complain to Amazon.
Worry that it would happen again, I complained immediately after not getting my books. Fortunately I received the books yesterday and at same time I got refund on my postal charges from amazon as mentioned in my My Books delivery from Amazon are delayed.
Now I have to read 3 books about restaurants. I bought these books because I want to understand restaurant business but I don’t have any planning to open a restaurant though.
I ordered few books at Amazon.com on 8th September 2018. According to Amazon, I shall get the books by 24th September 2018. Unfortunately till 27th, I haven’t received the books.
It worried me. Then I complained to Amazon via Live Chat. The customer representative told me that Amazon delayed the order processing and expected the books will be delivered to my house by 11th October.
The good thing the customer representative offered postal refund of USD19.96.
Wow it really impressed me. Give me confidence buying more from Amazon!
