Recently I got bored of the 'HKS' air filter and wanted something BIG as I find the 'HKS' filter is way too small for the 'Toyota 1JZ' engine... So I went out sourcing for the biggest air filter that I can fit into the engine bay of 'FrankenBenz'... And I'm in luck as I managed to find one and it comes with a pretty good price!!! Introducing the 'AEM Dryflow' air filter... 

Made in 'USA' yo!!!

Just look at the size!!! 

Size comparison between the 'AEM' and 'HKS'... Huge difference!!!

 'HKS' air filter with original plastic intake pipe... 

 'AEM' with custom aluminium intake pipe...

Ta-dah... Now the engine bay look so much nicer and not forgetting better intake due to the size of the filter... There's definitely some different as I find 'FrankenBenz' pulls a tad harder when using the 'AEM'... Now who wants my original 'HKS' air filter??? 

To be continue...

Choosing the right milk bottle for 'Mikayla' is something rather difficult... It might look extremely easy but in fact, it is not... I'm those person who prefer form over function and I like to be as unique as possible... I tend to stay away from norm and the first bottle that caught my eyes is definitely by 'Tommee Tippee'!!! 

Just look at the design and I'm sure you'll agree with what I've just said... It look so different from those conventional looking milk bottle!!! I know there are more unique looking bottles in the market but those are not as well known as these three BIG brands... So before my darling conceive, I told myself that these will be the bottles that 'Mikayla' will be drinking from...

But sadly, this bottle doesn't perform as good as it looks... After using this bottle, 'Mikayla's' mouth and neck is full of milk!!! Milk just leak from her mouth... Although the nicer but the performance is definitely the worse among these bottles that I've gather today!!! 

Second bottle that we tried is from 'MAM'... I love the design especially the ivory white one... The ivory white bottle used to be sold only in 'Walmart' but now it is available in 'Malaysia' as well... One of my darling's friend help us to buy the ivory white bottles from the 'States' and the moment we got it, we were really excited as it looks wonderful!!! Really pretty and I like the material they used for the bottles... The plastic is much harder and more resistant to scratch... 

I really like the design of the teat as it is flat and 'Mikayla' is able to suck it right from the moment she's born... She tend to reject those normal round teat as her mouth is really small and she don't like to open it BIG... So it was much easier for use to put 'MAM' teat into her mouth... But sadly we need to abandon these amazing bottle as well... The reason is pretty simple... It was really troublesome to use and it just leak from the top and also the bottom as the bottom is removable as well!!! When it comes to washing, this bottle is the most tedious as there are a lot of parts for you to dismantle and wash... When it comes to assemble, you must screw it right and I always do it right but the damn bottle just keeps leaking!!! In the end, I decided to give up on it as the leaking part is really driving me up the wall!!!

The most famous brand but the one that I rejected the earliest... The reason is simple... Too many people using it and it look so boring!!! Besides that, 'Mikayla' rejected these bottles as the teat is way too BIG for her small mouth... When we gave up on 'MAM', we decided to give 'Mikayla' another try on the 'Avent' bottle and surprisingly, she seems to accept it when she gets bigger... So we decided to stick with 'Avent' as it is the best in overall performance... The only thing that I need to get pass is the look!!! But fear not as 'Avent' introduces a new design!!!

The moment I saw this design, I was really ecstatic as it looks awesome... When scouting for this new bottle but it was not available in 'Malaysia' yet... So I turn to my best friend which is the 'Internet' by the way and order a set for 'Mikayla' to try... After using it for two weeks, I'm really happy with the performance of it... In fact, I'm ordering a few more together with some new teats!!! This new 'Avent' bottle is highly recommended by me and if you're looking for a new bottle for your baby, look no further!!!

Finally I've completed the collection!!! Why am I so excited about it??? True I'm a BIG 'Lego' fans but this is not the reason why I'm so happy that I've finally completed the collection... The reason is because I don't have to pump 'Shell' petrol anymore!!! 

Some people might say that all petrol are equal but the truth is, it is not!!! I don't pump 'RON97' so I can't comment on it but if you ask me about 'RON95', I can tell you that 'Shell' is the worse!!! It is so much inferior compare to others especially 'BHP' (i'm not getting paid on promoting 'BHP' petrol!!! i speak from experience)... Whenever I pump 'Shell RON95', my car felt under-power even with a 2.5L twin turbo engine up front!!! And I don't get the extra mileage that they claim as well... The whole car refuse to rev and the auto box is so reluctant to down shift... Really bad fuel if you ask me... If you're driving a performance car, please stay away from it!!!

So let me tell you which is the best petrol out there currently... The first goes to 'BHP'... Excellent power even using RON95... No other petrol brand come close!!! The next is 'Mobil/Esso/Petron' follow by 'Caltex' and 'Petronas'... And coming at a distance last is 'Shell' which used to be my favourite petrol... So sad to see a great brand producing such crappy petrol!!!

If you don't know, I'm not really a 'Twilight' fans!!! I still remembered the time I watched the first installment... I cursed like no tomorrow!!! Then I started reading the books and it makes some sense (as the story is supposed to be boring!!!) but still I'm no BIG fans of the installment... And since I've watched all the previous one, it doesn't make sense for me to skip the last installment... 

Again, the movie is quite boring in my opinion but definitely better than the previous one... Besides 'Michael Sheen' who plays the character 'Aro' (which is brilliant!!!), I find most of the actor/actress a bit dead and with no facial expression at all especially 'Kristen Stewart' and 'Robert Pattinson'!!! Both are lousy actor/actress if you ask me... So my suggestion is please watch this movie and get over it as it is just not worth talking about!!!
