Recalculate,recalculate…. Turn right at 100m.OMG, I had made the wrong turning by not taking Jln Duta. With the wow factor in this device , my panic faded away with just a breeze .

Till now you will know what I am talking about , it is the amazing GPS navigation device . I was totally caught the attention of GPS navigation device. It utilizes the on-time tracking system to navigate you around to reach your preset destination. With the revolutionary invention which existed few years ago in other countries, Malaysian just started to pick up the gadget . Plus, the gadget can let you set for the preference such as shortest distance, fastest time of arrival, toll avoidance, U-turn avoidance….

I tried this gadget for the first time when I was in my friend’s car to Wangsa Maju for supper . But ,the gadget managed to get us there by guiding us through some turnings and traffic lights. Pretty accurate.

After that , I went home but I missed the turning .I considered myself as stupid because I still can’t follow the GPS even though it is much more easier than the conventional look and drive style on my map manual. But then , the GPS really will alert us about any road blocks and incidents happened in front of the road traveled. The accuracy of the estimated arrival time which is a plus point for the system. The whole journey which I took from Duta bus station to Kelana Jaya was 25 km (0.5 hr) .

Technology really brings convenient for us as a driver to navigate around the cities with the vehicles traveling at 80 -100 km/h . As always , if you miss a turning , you will need to pay for the consequences like paying toll , taking big U-turn, detouring . It really eats up our patience .

Swatch Watch Staff Sales 2008

I have to say that this is the worst warehouse sale but not quite actually the case except for the bad attitude of staffs who treated the buyers. They were extremely rude.

I wanted to have a look at the coloured catalogue but I was told I was not allowed to do so. While i was picking my watch from the “black, white and blurry” catalogue, a lady staff just told me rudely those in the catalogue are not for us (customers) to take but just for reference.Luckily , I spotted one of the watches inside the box behind the counter .Then ,I asked an employee to let me have a look on that .He gave me and i wrote down the code and price .Thanks ,pss.. the watch which i bought was not in the catalogue . I was lucky to do that.

While I was waiting for my order, there was this bunch of girls next to me. They were looking through the stuffs they ordered. In the end they only wanted one. The swatch lady scolded them saying that if they didn't want all the watches they shouldn't have written them down in the order form .Besides she mentioned that it was very tough for them to look for the watches and packed them. So, being disorganised is the customers fault? So swatch pays them to just sit around???? What do they expect?? they are paid to be there to do so!!! This is ridiculous!!!! Also, you cannot expect people to be buying the watches without looking at them first. I mean, what do you expect when your catalogue is black, white and blurry!!!!!!

After packing the customers orders, the swatch employees just threw the bags on the floor. Yeah, the watches are cheaper than usual but I am sure it wouldn’t last that long.After all , we just buying those outdated stocks which they wanted to clear off once and for all.

Anyway, I was quite satisfied with my buy but not to mention the rudeness of the employees is a big discount on their image .I hope that in future they will improve for what we as a customer aspects .
