The public library that we normally go to has implemented a new system recently. It's the 'reminder email' system which I really love. A few days before the due date to return all the books, tapes, dvds and cds that we borrowed, they will send us a reminder email to basically remind us to return the borrowed stuff on time. Kalau dulu, selalu jugak we all terlupa nak pulangkan the books on time especially the Other Half so memang selalu jugak lah we all kena bayar the late penalty fees. Bukannya mahal mana pun, cuma 20 cents/item per day but kalau dah 10 benda yang we all pinjam and sampai seminggu terlupa nak pulang, tak ke sampai $14 tu! So, memang lah buang duit aje kan membayar fines ni, hehehe.... Baik I guna duit tu buat beli groceries kan :-). The Other Half dulu bila kena bayar denda sebab pulangkan lambat selalu cakap,
"That's ok Dear, we are supporting our local library with the fines money. If not for people like us who are perpetually late, they won't have enough money to buy more books!".
Banyak lah pandai Mamat tu berhujah, wahkahkahkah... Kalau betul hujah takpe lah kan :P. So, sekarang ni bila dah ada the reminder emails ni, all our borrowed stuff sentiasa di pulangkan on time and no more money being wasted on paying the late fine.
So tadi balik from picking up the Little Misses we went straight to the library and then sampai rumah dah lambat. But sempatlah nak buat lamb kebab for dinner and meatballs for the Little Misses lunch supply :-). But sempat buat itu aje pun, nasib baik lah ada frozen chips in the freezer and some lettuce in the crisper so that's what we had for dinner tonite.
Lamb kebab with oven baked chips and salad. Simple and filling :-).
