Burger King Sri Hartamas Closes Down And Now I Want A Burger

Drove past the Shell in Hartamas and saw that the Burger King had shut down. I do like their burgers even tho I only go there about once in 6 months. But now that they are closed, I find myself asking Lord Gaga where's the next nearest Burger King. I do feel like a Mushroom Swiss Double now. Why is it that humans want what they can't have or when it's no longer there?

Hmmm could be linked to the fact that I love having a pool, BBQ area, playground, sauna, gym, tennis courts, chill out area and the usual amnities within a condo even tho I hardly use them and despite paying for their maintainance every month. It's a nice-to-have and I know I'd feel deprived if they weren't there even if I had no use for them and no longer paying for them.

Us humans are a funny lot.

Baby Cost Costs

How is it that my queen sized bed frame costs RM799 and a baby's cot costs RM1,299. And the baby's latex mattress which comes highly recommnded costs RM699 while my 4 times larger quuen sized mattress costs under RM1,000?

So far we have purchased a Peg Perago Switch stroller and Recaro Infant to Toddler car seat which costs just uhnder RM5,000. I forsee we'd have spent double that amount by the time the baby get's here .... excluding hospitalisation etc.

And that's just 2 1/2 months away. How quick is that! How exciting!
