Some Tips For Fresh Grads

Wednesday, May 19th, 2010

I had to go through quite a significant number of resumes the other day, and here are some tips for fresh graduates out there. Try to make your resume short. 2-3 pages is just nice, 4 is too many. Skip that section listing your primary school results and hobbies. What good does it make if […]

Technology is great, indeed but human interaction is also important. We are sushi lovers, yes. Our favorite sushi outlet in Malaysia is Sushi King.

Facebook Glitches

Monday, April 26th, 2010

Facebook is an application, so it’s normal that it has glitches and problems. The first one I saw last week while writing a like button plugin is the incorrect number of likes a like button displays: It’s obvious there were 4 likes for the post but it randomly displays 2 of my friends. When not […]

WordPress Plugin: Basic Facebook Social Plugins

Thursday, April 22nd, 2010

Today, I saw that Facebook introduced some new features, and one intriguing feature is called “Facebook Social Plugin“. It would be very interesting to have blog posts to be simply “liked”, and having information displayed about activities and recommendations related to your website. So I decided to take 30 minutes of my break time and […]

Kerengga @ Weaver Ants @ Ocoephylla smaradgina

Friday, April 16th, 2010

I have no plans to change this blog to an insect blog or anything like that. I am just disappointed with people who are acting like Weaver Ants.

Amway Sucks

Thursday, March 11th, 2010

Due to the ranting nature of this post, reader discretion is advised. Some language may be offensive. More than a year ago, I became an Amway agent just because I needed to buy some recommended products from them. This was done by contacting an agent in the forums, in the Internet. When explained that I […]

Forex Trading In Malaysia

Friday, March 5th, 2010

It was an interesting morning today, when a friend told me that his brother received a job offer in a Forex trading company in Shah Alam. It was great news that he was able to get something after searching for opportunities for quite a while. However since my niece experienced this more than once, I […]

Queue Jumper BJV2290

Monday, February 22nd, 2010

On the road, one should not only think about oneself but about others. If the road is made only for 2 parallel vehicles, don’t make it three. But then again people don’t care. For example: Who is more despicable, queue jumper or new queue maker?. I like this post so much I am borrowing his […]

Review: The Picture Company @ One Utama

Tuesday, February 16th, 2010

Due to the ranting nature of this post, reader discretion is advised. Some language may be offensive. We found The Picture Company in One Utama some time ago and decided to try it out. We were out of time and unable to look for more options. We called the place to make an appointment and […]

DD-WRT as Wireless Client

Tuesday, February 16th, 2010

There is something very wrong with the wireless module on the DELL Precision M4300 I am currently using – after a while files begin to get corrupted and Windows will fail to write the event log. I have just had the motherboard changed by DELL last Monday. In the office I did not have any […]

Funny Phishing Attempt

Sunday, January 24th, 2010

I received an email with no text but contained just an image as attachment, and the whole image is a hyperlink to a phishing site: Notice the casual language and a spelling mistake (find out where!), plus the Copyright year is 2009. The email was sent to someone without the Internet banking facility, and a […]

Malaysian Twitter & Facebook Users Makes Fun of Rais Yatim

Wednesday, January 20th, 2010

You can consider this as an honest and sincere opinion from me, as a Malaysian and a heavy Internet user. Maybe, if Rais reads this it will be much fun. It’s all because of this news article: Malaysians advised against being immersed in Facebook, Twitter. In twitter, the tag #yorais has been spreading like mad. […]
