Hello folks,

Today I’d like to share with you how easy it is to renew your road tax today, at the comfort of your home using the online service by myeg.com.my. Please kindly refer to the attachment below, as I have summarized the process in visual format (jpeg). Please also note that this is my real transaction.

But before that, here are a few things you need to have/know prior to using this service:

  1. Internet connection, preferably broadband coz this will involve online payment.
  2. Your credit card ready (If you opt for CC payment). There are 3 methods of payment, you’ll find it in one of the attachments.
  3. Your insurance is already renewed. They also have online motor vehicle insurance renewal service, but mine has already been taken care by my agent. So I only use the Road Tax renewal service.
  4. Note that if you opt for Home/Office Delivery, and if you’re staying in Klang Valley, you’ll get your road tax the next day if your transaction takes place before 6 p.m. (it is the cut-off time). Otherwise you can opt for self-collection from your chosen e-Services Centre.
  5. Your Vehicle Registration Certification aka “Geran” is still with the Bank?! Don’t fret. You don’t even need it. I have confirmed this with myeg.
  6. They charged me RM6 for delivery, and RM2.75 for their service charge. Altogether RM8.75, which I find very minimal (as compared to engaging with a runner). I’m sure I would fork out more than that if I were to do it by myself i.e. go to the bank and post office/JPJ (fuel, parking fees, time and not to mention all the other unexpected risks I could bear on my way there).

Now all I have to do is to check on my mailbox tomorrow. Easy peasy, don’t you think?!

So go ahead, log on now to myeg.com.my to renew your roadtax and/or Motor Vehicle insurance.

Thanks and have a nice day ahead.

Regards,
Adiq

Clean Your Home in 19 Minutes

Because we’re so pathetic that we have no news to post in several months, I’m going to post something not related to koleq, especially for the slobs out there.

Taken from CNN Living.

With these room-by-room checklists, you can maintain a sparkling house in just 19 minutes a day, giving you more time for family, friends and you.

Kitchen, 4 ½ minutes daily
Always start with the sink. “Keep it empty and shining,” says Marla Cilley, author of Sink Reflections (Bantam, $15) and creator of www.FlyLady.net, a housekeeping Web site. A sparkling sink becomes your kitchen’s benchmark for hygiene and tidiness, inspiring you to load the dishwasher immediately and keep counters, refrigerator doors, and the stovetop spick-and-span, too.

• Wipe down the sink after doing the dishes or loading the dishwasher (30 seconds).
• Wipe down the stove top (one minute).
• Wipe down the counters (one minute).
• Sweep, Swiffer, or vacuum the floor (two minutes).

Bathroom, 2 minutes daily
Make cleaning the basin as routine as washing your hands. But don’t stop there. Get the most out of your premoistened wipe by using it to clean around the edges of the tub and then the toilet before tossing it.

• Wipe out the sink (30 seconds). Wipe the toilet seat and rim (15 seconds).
• Swoosh the toilet bowl with a brush (15 seconds).
• Wipe the mirror and faucet (15 seconds).
• Squeegee the shower door (30 seconds).
• Spray the entire shower and the curtain liner with shower mist after every use (15 seconds).

Bedroom, 6 ½ minutes daily
Make your bed right before or after your morning shower. A neat bed will inspire you to deal with other messes immediately. Although smoothing sheets and plumping pillows might not seen like a high priority as you’re rushing to work, the payoff comes at the end of the day, when you slip back under the unruffled covers.

• Make the bed (two minutes).
• Fold or hang clothing and put away jewelry (four minutes).
• Straighten out the night-table surface (30 seconds).

Family room, living room, foyer, 6 minutes daily
Start with the sofa — as long as it’s in disarray, your living room will never look tidy. Once you’ve fluffed the pillows and folded the throws, you’re halfway home. If you pop in a CD while you dust, you should be able cover the whole room by the end of the third track.

• Pick up crumbs and dust bunnies with a handheld vacuum (one minute).
• Fluff the cushions and fold throws after use (two minutes).
• Wipe tabletops and spot-clean cabinets when you see fingerprints (one minute).
• Straighten coffee-table books and magazines, throw out newspapers, put away CDs and videos (two minutes.)
