Importing Your Blog Posts into Facebook “Notes”

Thursday, December 3rd, 2009

I have always find it difficult to find the import link, even when I wanted to change my settings. So here is a quick note for myself and to others who are interested in importing their blog posts into the Facebook notes. There may be a shorter way to access the notes page but I […]

Malaysia PayPal Users Can Now Add Local Bank Accounts

Wednesday, December 2nd, 2009

My better half told me yesterday that we can now add our local bank accounts in PayPal. It was too good to be true so I decided to check. I went to check my PayPal emails first just in case I missed an announcement. However, I don’t see any. It’s kinda weird that when a […]

Big Bad Thursday

Saturday, November 28th, 2009

I spent 6.5 hours from 9.00AM to 3.30PM at Puchong Naza Kia service center, wasting time because I didn’t realize they have free wifi. As planned, we rushed to the Big Bad Wolf book sales at Amcorp Mall. The traffic was moderate, but Amcorp Mall was packed with people. Arriving at the outdoor parking space […]

Is 5GB Per Month Enough? Fair Usage Policy

Thursday, November 12th, 2009

I don’t think so. Last week, I was on leave for the whole week and did some light browsing at home. To avoid contamination with other PCs in my house, I conducted this test while purely tethering on my BlackBerry device. WIFI was turned off. The only objective is to see how much data I […]

Secret Recipe at The Curve Damansara

Sunday, September 27th, 2009

My other half and I have always loved Secret Recipe. Among our favorite dishes are the Thai Fried Rice, Vietnamese Beef Noodle, Singapore Laksa, and not forgetting the cakes. It’s a Malaysian brand, and it provides good food. However we have not been visiting any outlets since a couple of months ago because we had […]

Another hot issue in South East Asia, and a sad one. The issue of ownership between Indonesia and Malaysia. We have seen so many events happening in Indonesia that reflects the hatred of some Indonesian people towards Malaysia. Burning of the Malaysian flag, “sweeping” of Malaysians from the streets of Jakarta, and the “GANYANG MALAYSIA” […]

There Are Still Uncivilized People Using The Internet

Monday, August 10th, 2009

Sad to admit, but it’s true. I am helping a friend to get rid of a very old HP laptop but instead of throwing it in the trash I decided to try and sell it off at so that he can get a netbook. I am not surprised to receive quick responses from the […]

Italiannies Sunway Pyramid

Friday, July 24th, 2009

This is an overdue post that I wanted to write right after I came back from there on Tuesday, but I couldn’t. That day, I went back home earlier than usual as my other half was craving for pasta. Pizza Hut and Kenny Rogers pasta were also candidates but we like the Carbonara at Italiannies […]

Do I need to reboot the machine after increasing the maximum number of open files at /etc/security/limits.conf?

Friday, July 24th, 2009

No, you don’t need to. This morning I struggled to convince someone that the server does not need a reboot. It was because of this: Increasing the number of file handles on Linux workstations. ulimit – Provides control over the resources available to the shell and to processes started by it, on systems that allow […]

Allianz Auto Assist

Thursday, July 16th, 2009

My car refused to start on Sunday, and as a car dummy I didn’t expect it was the battery. I thought the maintenance-free dry cell would last longer than acid lead batteries. That incident caused me to miss a friend’s wedding, but I am happy to see the pictures posted in many other blogs as […]

Yahoo! Mail is Down

Thursday, July 9th, 2009

I am unsure whether this is only effected Plus users, or everyone. When I failed to fetch my emails using Thunderbird, I tried the web interface and received this:
