0 komentar
Setiap berbelanja dengan kartu Kartu MCC di  Matahari Department Store, maka kita akan mendapatkan poin. Untuk kartu Reguler setiap kelipatan Rp.20.000 kita akan mendapatkan 2 poin, sedangkan kartu Premium dan kartu Beauty, poin yang diperoleh 2 kalinya, yakni 4 poin.

Poin yang telah terkumpul tersebut dapat kita tukarkan dengan voucher belanja.  Setiap 100 poin  kita dapat menukarkan dengan voucher MCC senilai  Rp. 10.000.Voucher ini dapat langsung kita gunakan untuk mengurangi jumlah pembelanjaan kita, atau voucher tersebut dapat kita simpan untuk belanja dikemudian hari ataupun dapat diberikan ke kerabat atau orang tercinta. Penukaran voucher dapat dilakukan di counter MCC di semua toko Matahari.

Untuk mengetahui jumlah poin yang telah kita kumpulkan, kita dapat langsung ke counter MCC dengan menunjukan kartu MCC atau dengan nomor kartu MCC yang tertera di kartu. 

Ada cara yang paling gampang dan cepat dan pastinya lebih menyenangkan untuk mengetahui jumlah poin yang telah kita kumpulkan, yakni melalui pengecekan di website MCC,  pada menu MCC Membersip. Masukan nomor kartu dan password kita dan kita akan melihat jumlah poin yang terkumpul untuk dapat kita tukarkan dengan voucher MCC.

Tapi untuk password, dimana dapat kita peroleh?. Pada kartu Premium dan Beauty, password ada di sebelah kanan setelah nomor kartu (4 angka). Password juga tertera  pada bar-code di belakang kartu Beauty, Premium ataupun kartu Reguler dengan angka yang lebih kecil.

Jika pertama kali masuk ke menu ini, kita akan diminta untuk langsung mengganti password di sistem MCC tersebut.  Dengan mengganti password, maka password akan berbeda dengan yang telah di cetak di kartu dan hanya kita yang mengetahui password tersebut.

Disini kita juga dapat merubah data yang ada dan juga kita dapat melihat transaksi belanja yang pernah kita lakukan sebelumnya.


  • Ganti password dengan kombinasi angka dan huruf, minimal password  8 digit.
  • Perhatikan masa berlaku voucher MCC untuk menghindari voucher kedaluarsa.

9 tips for renting an apartment at Hong Kong

3 komentar
There are various kind of options for places to stay in Hong Kong, ranging from luxury hotels, star hotels, hostels, backpackers / guest house to an apartment. Location of the places was also influential in choosing the places. The accommodation is spread almost all over Hong Kong, but the majority located in Kowloon and Hong Kong Island. The Limited land available has caused property prices to be very expensive. Buildings in here mostly comprises a slim tall buildings with small size and efficient.

Daily rent apartment option is workable alternative if our budget is limited, especially if we are traveling with a family. However, not so many apartements can be rented due to their regulation. Some of the apartment owner offer their places at web sites, ask for the rate they offer, review the pros and cons of previous tenants if any. Do it before we decided to rent.
Some points based on our experiences on choosing to rent apartment instead of staying at hotel when travelled along with kids:
  • Kids are more comfortable and feel at home. Usually a rented apartment has a living room furnished with a sofa and televison sets. They can play as well as at home.
  • We can save costs because we can cook ourselves. Find an apartment that has a kitchen set as they usually come with cooking utensils. Shop at the supermarket for cooking needs.

The department store at Mustafa Centre consists of two shopping centres: one retailing jewellery and household appliances, and has a supermarket in it; and the other selling books, CDs and DVDs, watches, electronic goods, footwear and clothing.  The business concept of offering other services such as Foreign Exchange, VISA Processing, Travels Booking, Gold Mart,  GST refund counter and all kinds of shopping item available under one roof.

The place is huge and you need a couple of hours to cover all the departments, It is not the most sophisticated and classy place to shop in Singapore but it surely sells almost everything at a reasonable price and also open 24hours, thus making Mustafa a popular shopping place for tourists.

You can get almost anything from over 300,000 items displayed on four levels covering an area of 400,000 Sq.ft within the six story building along Syed Alwi Road. It has a wide variety of goods from souvenirs, food, spice to electronics. Just selecting carefully and patiently cause sometimes if you're lucky you will find the same things with lower price or better quality, like t shirt (Singapore-is-a-fine-country T-shirt), souvenir, etc. But remember, most of those items can be purchased from other places in Singapore, like Chinatown or Bugis Street market, even at Orchard Road with better quality and price.

If you have limited time for shopping around but wanted to buy some souvenirs before leaving for airport, Mustafa might be your best choice.  You can go there even after midnight, do your shopping and if you do not have enough space in your luggage, you can always buy extra luggage in Mustafa too, but make sure you refund your GST if you can. There are lots of Indian restaurant around Mustafa so don’t worry about getting hungry.

Getting Here
Take MRT of the North East Line (purple) - Punggol to Harbour Front and alight at Farrer Park station, do not alight at Little India station. Services operate from about 5:30 am and usually end before 1 a.m. daily with intervals of approximately three to eight minutes. For after midnight shopping, use the taxi services.

Some tips for shopping at Mustafa
  • If you don’t mind the crowds, come by on a Saturday or Sunday evening, but if you want to do your shopping leisurely then go after midnight. 
  • Before you buy the perishable products, please check the packaging and the expiry date. 
  • Don’t rush, takes your time to look through every shelf through out the mall, some items might not be displayed at the same area, be sure to browse first unless you already know what you want to buy. 
  • Don't feel bad about pushing your way through the crowd 
  • Watch out your valuables. Beware of pickpocket 
  • Ask your shopping bags to be locked with cable ties before entering the store. Sometimes the security guards may request for your personal bag (non-handbags) to be cable-tied as well. 
  • There's a storage counter if you are carrying big bags. It's better to put it at their temporary storage because the passage ways are narrow, you won't want to knock things down.

Photography: Cloudy sky view from the plane

0 komentar
There is rarely an opportunity to capture the beauty of a cloudy sky. If we find it, immediately took the camera or mobile camera. One of the most interesting view is when we are on the plane. Well while waiting to take off or already above the clouds.

Take a picture when the plane queuing for take off. At this time, the plane is relatively still and no significant shocks.

To get a good picture of cloud, the aircraft should already be in the clouds. Do not delay to aim the camera if there is a bunch of beautiful clouds. to avoid light reflection from the plane, attach the lens as close as possible to the window. Take wing aircraft in the foreground image. On a sunny day, you can take a picture with apperture in figure 8-10 with ISO 100.

Point the camera slightly up to the sky to get a blue sky, or down to get the blue ocean. If lucky, we could get a picture of the mountains or sailing ships.

Framed pictures of the sky by taking a picture window. With the backlight, window and wall planes will appear black. Or take a picture of people sitting next to the window to get a silhouette with blue sky background
