How to cook maggi mee?

Maggi Mee is one of the famous local instant noodle in Malaysia, so, when you are here, it’s so infamous that you can even order it by it’s name, say, “one Maggi” and the waiter would know.

It has different flavours, which this is one of it, Curry Flavour it says.
You can easily prepare it using any metal container. Of course, make sure it’s heat resistant. Avoid using plastic, you’ll melt it with the noodle before even finish cooking it. You need not to cook it with a lot of water.
Fire it on!

It’s on fire. Let’s wait until the water’s boiled.
While waiting, inside the packaging you’ll find yourself, a pack of seasoning.
Open the package and pour the seasoning inside.
Stir and wait until it’s boil.

Place in the noodle.



As what the packaging says, it’s a 2-minute noodle. But from what I can see, it’s really up to your preference how ‘soft’ you want the noodle to be, but please make sure not to cook it for too long else you’ll ending up eating flour.

How to fill petrol for car?

It might be overlooked, that the safety precaution during filling up petrol for your car. Here’s a basic walkthrough how you’ll use the pump. I still remember back in the old day of the famous ol’ “Ambil Tarik Tolak Ad” (forgot the actual phrase, but is’ funny to know that filling petrol is like reading maths)

Note : Please make sure if your car is suitable for Unleaded/leaded petrol or Diesel! Do not fill with it with the wrong petrol!

Once you parked your car beside the pump, to avoid embarassing yourself, remember to open your car’s gas tank’s door.
Of course, at certain classical petrol station, you’ll get to choose leaded and unleaded fuels. Which almost every car now uses unleaded fuel. Choose the right one.
Once you made the correct amount of payment, there’ll be indication from the LCD screen of the pump that you can start filling up.
It’s open

Remove the cover.

There’s no complication in this process, just take the pump and tuck it in. Make sure it’s in, else you’ll have petrol leaking/sprinkling out.
Just make sure

You can choose to hold on the trigger.

Or automate the process, notice how the white little metal that is being locked/held?

How to discharge yourself from static?

If you’re unsure about what it is, you may do up a short reading at here. Most of us always worried that when we are handling our precious computer or hardware, that it died before we even know it how it happened. And it died before our hand because of static that passed through severe voltage to the semiconductor’s object/chip

Remember that you sometime have problems with touching shiny metal material, where you get a short eletrical shock from it? Of course, the guide below is still a guideline on how you can prevent you from damaging your hardware. It’s from my understanding, and i’m not liable if you damage your hardware. Don’t ask me lol. 😛 Of course, if you’re able to afford, you can purchase any anti-static strap (examples) from any hardware/electrical store, available wordwide.
AVOID handling your hardware straightaway, it’s best you do precautious measure first! To discharge yourself from statics.
Ensuring yourself are on the ground, it’s best that you can straight away touch any of the unpainted area of your PC’s casing, or if you can’t find any, just find any other metal material that connects to the ground as well. Touch it for a few time.
Not a hard process eh

Touch touch touch

You’re ready to go.
