Konvensyen Jutawan Awesome 2012

Monday, October 1st, 2012

This year, I am trying to learn as much as possible by joining seminars and conventions related to business and entrepreneurship. I’ve attended seminars by Dr. Azizan Osman and they are superb. As someone who has a day job (salary earner), I still have plans for retirement by having my own business some day. Earlier […]

I received a surprise in the mail today. It’s the iPhone cable I won in a giveaway organized by LiewCF.com. Thanks LiewCF and I should also thank MudahAlih.my for sponsoring the gifts.

Sluggish iChat, Messages, Terminal, and Others in Mac OS X Lion

Saturday, May 12th, 2012

After about 60 days using my MacBook Pro running Mac OS X Lion (10.7.3), I saw some sluggishness in some apps. At first, it was Messages (iChat replacement for Mountain Lion). It went unresponsive and displays the rainbow wheel for a few seconds, enough to annoy an impatient user. Then, the same behavior happened in […]

Crocs Malaysia Warehouse Sale

Sunday, January 22nd, 2012

I have always been a fan of Crocs shoes because of their lightness, durability and the airy design. As someone who suffers from athlete’s foot since the teen years, airy means better air circulation and dryer feet. Back in 2009 or 2010 we went to a Crocs warehouse sale in Ikano Power Center in Damansara. […]
