Don’t act like it’s normal

Some times it’s not only appropriate to act as your age, but it is important to act as the current situation as well.

It’s not driving mood/mode now

I know it may be hard to stay at home although I don’t understand, I can agree with your feeling. Currently, it’s in movement restriction order, you’re not supposed to go for a spin in your car. Go to where you should and go home.

It’s not usual shopping hour

Because it’s movement restriction order and not a lockdown, so we get to go out and get the essential. It’s not the time to think about what to buy in the store. Make a list before you come out, pick up, make payment and go home.

The right thing to do now is, make a list and plan your drive. Go, get, pay, home. Just because there is no traffic on the road, you take your time, nobody should be spending a lot of time on the road or in a store.

Quote me this: When the army is on the road, traffic will build up because of these idiots.

Restricted Movement

Whatever the name is, it’s all comes to one thing – Stay home. It’s just as simple as that, nothing more. When there is nothing to do, stay home instead of walk around the mall.

This is something so simple that one should have been doing it already. Why is there to wait for the government to tell?

Everyone is asking what government going to do, well, a strict check-up is ready, strict travel already imposed. Besides financial aid, I do not see anything the government can do but ourselves, which is, again, stay home.

Now, the financial aid seems disappointing, but it is what you’re looking for, so take it and shut up. Stay home like what the government imposes.

It is that hard!

My email to SOCAR, here is the break down of the event.

Day 1: I wanted to register to SOCAR app, but it just doesn’t upload my identification. So I gave up, I emailed the support (after some search, I went to Facebook, because nothing is working) to get my account removed.

Day 2: Received a follow-up automation email regarding whatever it is the first email. The unsubscribe link doesn’t work, it loop back to my email. So again, I contact the support to get myself removed from their newsletter.

Day 14: Another automation email came. I was pissed, I clicked the unsubscribe link, it work this time. I contact the support again to confirm and get myself out of them.

I understand there will be some hiccup especially on email marketing, but removing an email shouldn’t be that hard to do.

It seems like I’m with government agency. Everything is harder and time consuming with them.

Car

I’m not a car enthusiast, as long as it has wheels and cover me on a rainy day, getting me from point A to point B, I’m good. The car I’m driving is about 7 years old now. I’m not planning to change any time soon, but I do bring up the changing car topic with my wife from time to time.

Nissan Grand Livina

Our first thought was an electric car, which is way too limited in the market. Nissan Leaf is kind of expensive for a small car. I don’t believe building an electric car is so difficult, just look at the success with Tesla car (and numerous electric car in China). There is even a solar-powered car.

The thing is, when people buying a car, they’re looking for fast, horsepower and some shits that a car doesn’t really need. Why would a normal town and highway driving need to pick up 100km/h in 6 seconds or less?

If you look at a car as what it is – transportation. There isn’t really a lot of requirement. In fact, I think if we remove a lot of the so-called “performance”, it will still be a car, a decent car we can drive to the mall and have dinner around town.

As a matter of fact, we should in a way limit a car performance to help combat accidents. Here, where I live, there is one t junction (minor road mind you), so far 5 years of living, I’ve seen 3 major accidents (car flipping).

If there is a solar-powered “normal” car available and within my budget, I will sign up first one, no question asked. I still don’t understand why there isn’t much initiative from our government to import/encourage more electric cars.

Marvel Exhibition

So we went to the exhibition the other weekend. Not really that interesting for my liking.

I mean a few items from the movies and that’s all. I don’t like the human figures there, as it is nothing like the real person/thing.

Also, one thing bugs me a lot is the way it exhibits – I cannot go backward. Once we went inside the walkway, there is only one way to go – forward. Why? Why can’t I go back to the previous section? Limited space for those limited items?
