Road tax lowered on private vehicles from Jan 1
Vehicle owners will have something to celebrate this New Year - lower road tax.
Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak announced yesterday that road tax for all privately-owned cars would be reduced by between 4% and 33%, effective tomorrow.
No bad news but everyone is hoping the petrol prices will not go up
What is your New Year resolution?
This is my resolution for 2007
To be healthy all year round
To eat more grapefruits
Grapefruit is gaining ground as a power food. New research shows that it can fight heart disease and cancer, trigger your body to lose weight and even help you get a better night’s sleep.
A grapefruit a day can . . .
Increase your energy levels by 43 per cent.
Combat narrowing of the arteries by 46 per cent.
Help you feel fuller between meals, making you less likely to snack.
Lower your total cholesterol and LDL (bad) cholesterol levels by eight and 11 per cent respectively.
Reduce your risk of developing lung cancer by as much as 50 per cent.
Help you lose up to nine kilograms a year.
Lower your blood pressure by more than 10 points in the top number and five points in the bottom.
Improve the quality of your sleep by 64 per cent.
