Gas.

Funny but filling up with Blaze was my cheapest (and only sub P2000) fill-up so far this year, and I got a Hulk toy freebie to go with it. I think we are at a point where it's cheaper to run a gas powered car than a diesel lol

It is actually cheaper for gas since diesel overtook gas in terms of pricing, well, for me I guess. Because Crosswind and Mobilio actually have the same consumption - for my driving style, around 12.5km/L - for long travels, gas would be cheaper, since I can go upto 16Km/L on Mobilio, but can only go 14Km/L on Crosswind

Ordered a MagSafe CD slot car mount from china, and they sent me used surgical facemask in an envelope. WTF?! Initiated a refund with Lazada.

I encountered bait and switch more often in Lazada than in Shopee. I actually returned more items in Lazada than Shopee. In fact, I don't recall ever returning an item in Shopee. But I usually order big ticket items from Lazada.

Also with Shopee, shipment lead times are typically shorter compared to Lazada. It's just that I usually go for whichever online marketplace that has the item I want available or has it at a lower price. If I need something quick, I go for Shopee.

On-topic:

I ordered an ADATA SU630 240GB SSD and 2x 8GB Kingston DDR3 1600 memory for an old Lenovo Intel Core i3 (Haswell) desktop mini tower that I'm reviving to issue to our new employee at the office.

Yeah my Mazda2 is more frugal than my Kia Sorento, that for a time I was using the former more, but now that rains have started, I have to use the latter often in case of floods. Good thing diesel prices are starting to drop more than gas.

Reddit was correct, or at least for me. Boxer briefs are better than boxers or briefs. There's no chafing i.e. skin rubbing. It's supportive and yet airy. That's now all i wear when am alone at home.

Diswasher tray replacement (and a very fast delivery, called 'em (Maximus) up this morning, and got it a few minutes ago) -- they don't lie when they say that dishwasher soap is corrosive

here's the underside of the corroded tray

Ikea Markus. The lumbar support that pokes my back will take some getting used to.

On the plus side, the headrest and seat cushion are comfy. It's also got a steel base and the back rest recline mechanism has a quality and smooth feel to it.

diesel, because there will be a price increase next week. Luckily I will be out of town for the next 2 weeks so the car is just parked.
