Miri City - "The Oil Town"

I have got a lot of people asking me about any special places in Miri City (in Sarawak, Malaysia or also called as West Borneo). Some of the places in Miri can be found in other websites, such as the Mulu Cave, Mulu National Park, Niah Cave, Lambir National Park, Bario Highland, and Loagan Bunut National Park.

So, I would like to add some other places which is a must-visit place, which located on the Kanada Hill, Miri, Sarawak (don't know how they got the Kanada name).

1. Grand Old Lady - The First Well
This is a very historical place for Malaysia, because it is the First Well drilled in 10th August 1910. Drilled by Shell, big oil company which still remain in Sarawak as Sarawak Shell Berhad.

2. Time Capsul (in Malay: Kapsul Masa)
The Time Capsul was launched on the 20th May 2005. It contained the "Book Of Miri City Officialisation" ("Buku Cenderamata Perayaan Pengisytiharan Bandaraya Miri") which will be opened on the 20th May 2105 (100 years later after the launch).

**Writer & his kids.

So, since this year is the VISIT MALAYSIA YEAR 2007, don't miss your chance...

Making A Baby...


The Smiths were unable to conceive children and decided to use a surrogate father to start their family. On the day the proxy father was to arrive, Mr. Smith kissed his wife goodbye and said, "Well, I'm off now. The man should be here soon."

Half an hour later, just by chance, a door-to-door baby photographer happened to ring the doorbell, hoping to make a sale. "Good morning, Ma'am", he said, "I've come to..."

"Oh, no need to explain," Mrs. Smith cut in, embarrassed, "I've been expecting you."

"Have you really?" said the photographer. "Well, that's good. Did you know babies are my specialty?"

"Well that's what my husband and I had hoped. Please come in and have a seat".
After a moment she asked, blushing, "Well, where do we start?"

"Leave everything to me. I usually try two in the bathtub, one on the couch, and perhaps a couple on the bed. And sometimes the living room floor is fun. You can really spread out there."

"Bathtub, living room floor? No wonder it didn't work out for Harry and me!"

"Well, Ma'am, none of us can guarantee a good one every time. But if we try several different positions and I shoot from six or seven angles, I'm sure you'll be pleased with the results."

"My, that's a lot!", gasped Mrs. Smith.

"Ma'am, in my line of work a man has to take his time. I'd love to be In and out in five minutes, but I'm sure you'd be disappointed with that."

"Don't I know it," said Mrs. Smith quietly.
The photographer opened his briefcase and pulled out a portfolio of his baby pictures. "This was done on the top of a bus," he said.

"Oh, my God!" Mrs. Smith exclaimed, grasping at her throat.

"And these twins turned out exceptionally well - when you consider their mother was so difficult to work with."

"She was difficult?" asked M rs. Smith.

"Yes, I'm afraid so. I finally had to take her to the park to get the job done right. People were crowding around four and five deep to get a good look"

"Four and five deep?" said Mrs. Smith, her eyes wide with amazement.

"Yes", the photographer replied. "And for more than three hours, too. The mother was constantly squealing and yelling - I could hardly concentrate, and when darkness approached I had to rush my shots. Finally, when the squirrels began nibbling on my equipment, I just had to pack it all in."

Mrs. Smith leaned forward. "Do you mean they actually chewed on your,"

"It's true, Ma'am, yes.. Well, if you're ready, I'll set-up my tripod and we can get to work right away."


"Oh yes, Ma'am. I need to use a tripod to rest my Canon on. It's much too big to be held in the hand very long."

Mrs. Smith fainted !

Doctor Terminology

What doctors say, and what they're really thinking:

"This should be taken care of right away."
I'd planned a trip to Hawaii next month but this is so easy and profitable that I want to fix it before it cures itself.

"Welllllll, what have we here...?"
He has no idea and is hoping you'll give him a clue.

"Let me check your medical history."
I want to see if you've paid your last bill before spending any more time with you.

"Why don't we make another appointment later in the week."
I'm playing golf this afternoon, and this a waste of time.
I need the bucks, so I'm charging you for another office visit.

"We have some good news and some bad news."
The good news is, I'm going to buy that new BMW. The bad news is, you're going to pay for it.

"Let's see how it develops."
Maybe in a few days it will grow into something that can be cured.

"Let me schedule you for some tests."
I have a forty percent interest in the lab.

"I'd like to have my associate look at you."
He's going through a messy divorce and owes me a bundle.

"I'd like to prescribe a new drug."
I'm writing a paper and would like to use you for a guinea pig.

"If it doesn't clear up in a week, give me a call."
I don't know what it is. Maybe it will go away by itself.

"That's quite a nasty looking wound."
I think I'm going to throw up.

"This may smart a little."
Last week two patients bit off their tongues.

"Well, we're not feeling so well today, are we...?"
I'm stalling for time. Who are you and why are you here?

"This should fix you up."
The drug company slipped me some big bucks to prescribe this stuff.

"Everything seems to be normal."
Rats! I guess I can't buy that new beach condo after all.

"I'd like to run some more tests."
I can't figure out what's wrong. Maybe the kid in the lab can solve this one.

"Do you suppose all this stress could be affecting your nerves?"
You're crazier'n an outhouse rat. Now, if I can only find a shrink who'll split fees with me ...

"There is a lot of that going around."
My God, that's the third one this week. I'd better learn something about this.

"If those symptoms persist, call for an appointment."
I've never heard of anything so disgusting. Thank God I'm off next week.

Hehehehe.... For Doctors, Cheer Up Guys....

Next Mercedes Sport Car - SLC

As you already know by now Mercedes and Mclaren split after the SLR didn’t have the success everyone expected. As a result, the next sport car from Mercedes will be built without McLaren’s help.

The next sport car will be called SLC and will be built in cooperation with DTM. It will be based on the next-generation SL and will be a front/mid-engine car with rear-wheel drive model. A first concept will be unveiled next year at Geneva Motor Show.

The SLC will have a fixed carbon roof to lower the center of gravity and gullwing doors to link it with the SLR. The SLC will be a 2-seater, although one of the design goals is that the car provide more than adequate space for two people and their luggage.

It will be powered by a modified 6.2-liter AMG V-8 engine with an output of 700 hp. Price will be around $200,000 and will be limited to only 500 units.

Tire Safety
Studies of tire safety show that maintaining proper tire pressure, observing tire and vehicle load limits,and inspecting tires for cuts, slashes, and other irregularities are the most important things you can do to avoid tire failure, such as tread separation or blowout and flat tires. These actions, along with other care and maintenance activities, can also:
- Improve vehicle handling
- Help protect you and others from avoidable breakdowns and accidents
- Improve fuel economy
- Increase the life of your tires.

What Information’s you must
know about your Car Tires

• Temperature Resistance
• Traction
• Tread wear
• Max. Load Capacity /tire
• Speed Symbol
• Manufacturing Date

Where you can find these information ?

Temperature Resistance

These letters indicates a tire's resistance to heat.
From highest to lowest, a tire's resistance to heat is graded as "A", "B", or "C".

Symbol Area
A - Hot Area
B - Normal Weather Area
C - Cold Area

Treadwear Number

This number indicates the tire's wear rate.
The higher the treadwear number is, the longer it should take for the tread to wear down.
For example, a tire graded 400 should last twice as long as a tire graded 200.


This letter indicates a tire's ability to stop on wet pavement. A higher graded tire should allow you to stop your car on wet roads in a shorter distance than a tire with a lower grade. Traction is graded from highest to lowest as "AA","A", "B", and "C".

Max. Load Capacity & tire Speed Symbol

Number indicates the max. load that can be carried by the tire. Symbol indicates the
max. Speed at which a tire is designed to be driven for extended periods of time.

Manufacturing Date

This Tire has been made in Week 37 from year 2005

Vehicle tires have a 4-year validity period from their Date of Manufacture (DOM). Thereafter, the tire expires and may burst whilst in use. How to find out whether your tire has expired? Check for a stamp like this: (*2603*) There is an asterisk at the beginning and at the end of this serial number.
The first two numbers 2 6 will tell which week of the year has it been manufactured.
NB: One year has 52 weeks. The last two numbers represent the year of make. Therefore, *2603* shows that the said tire is manufactured in the 26th week of the year 2003. *2699* this shows that the tire is made in the 26th week of 1999.
Check all your tires for safety purposes. Do not use expired tires. They are likely to burst (especially when running in hot weather) because the rubber component may have hardened and cracked.
