Why I Will Never Buy From Senheng Ever Again

Thursday, July 3rd, 2014

I’m still alive and before I reach the point of one year without writing anything in this blog, I thought that I should write something. Have been busy with life. I’ve been frowning upon the “as long as it works” mentality with Malaysians since I was born. People are providing services without qualifications, and doing […]

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 […]

Pink iPhone Cable from Giveaway

Tuesday, September 4th, 2012

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. I laughed because I expected that he will send me a pink cable, as I commented about pink in the post: Thank you, […]

UniFi Phone Call Forwarding

Thursday, February 23rd, 2012

If you’re here to look for the way to forward the phone that comes to UniFi to another phone number, I apologize. I don’t know how. I tried asking TM call center but they told me to call UniFi support for UniFi phone. For the record every time I try *61*XXXXXXXXXX# the automated voice response […]

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. […]

Selangor No Plastic Bag Every Saturday

Sunday, April 17th, 2011

Since January 2010, the state of Selangor where I live imposed a new campaign where no plastic bags will be provided in retail transactions. Note that it’s a campaign and not a law. While I am in agreement that we need to do something about the pollution and improving the environment, I think this campaign […]

If You Want to Be Selfish, Do it Smart

Saturday, February 26th, 2011

Late Friday afternoon, tired from the week’s work, I encountered this on the road. Approaching a crossroad with traffic lights, it turned red for those going straight. From behind, there’s this Proton Iswara swerving dangerously to the right taking the right lane for vehicles turning right. Fine. Detecting that there’s a car on that lane, […]

Tak Nak – Really?

Monday, February 7th, 2011

“Tak Nak“, literally translated to “Don’t Want” is a tag line for Malaysia’s anti smoking campaign. In true sense it means “Say No To Smoking”. It’s a collaboration between the Government and a few other organizations. I was lucky enough to have some time to recently visit the National Zoo of Malaysia (locally known as […]

TM UniFi Downtime: Exercise Your Rights

Thursday, December 9th, 2010

If you are a UniFi subscriber, and live in the Puchong (plus Damansara reported by achmatibrahim via Twitter) area you might have already been aware of the downtime since yesterday afternoon (8 December 2010). At the moment I am writing this post, it has been more than 12 hours. TM is not actively informing users […]

Everything On The Web Is Public Domain

Saturday, November 6th, 2010

That’s what an Editor of the Cooks Source magazine told a writer when she called about the magazine taking her 5-year old article and publishing it in the magazine. If that’s true this blog wouldn’t have been taken down by GoDaddy a few months back because one of the sister blogs hosted in the same […]

Malaysian Bank to Avoid: EON Bank

Friday, October 29th, 2010

I received a call just about 10 minutes ago, from an automated recording system. Dear customer, you have eight thousand of outstanding amount in the system. Please remit your payment immediately. Press 0 to talk to our customer service So I did. For the record I never had any relationship with this bank for anything. […]

DiGi iPhone Page Has Wrong Modification Date via HTTP

Saturday, September 25th, 2010

iPhone 4 has just been launched in Malaysia, and I have also been closely following the progress. Looking at SoyaCincau’s comparison between Maxis and DiGi, I was attempting to load DiGi’s page again. I have done this before. Instead of talking about iPhone 4 itself, I am going to see why the page is showing […]

Maxis Transparent Proxy is Causing Problems to Developers

Saturday, August 14th, 2010

I had to transfer 2 WordPress blogs to another hosting provider last night, as the free one is going to expire today. It should be as easy as: Transfer the files Transfer the database Change DNS servers in registry to the new DNS servers Configure the new hosting location In a few hours after the […]

Maxis SysAdmins Are Rookies?

Thursday, August 5th, 2010

If you’re one of the SysAdmins working for Maxis, and you celebrated the recent System Administrator’s Appreciation day, you should really think about your future. SysAdmins are supposed to make people life’s easier, not the other way round. Maxis has been implementing transparent proxy for some time now, I think to save on bandwidth usage […]

Utusan Karya (Saji Magazine) Should Apologize to Mat Gebu

Thursday, July 8th, 2010

MAJALAH “SAJI” CURI GAMBAR KEK MAT GEBU!!.. The thing I hate next to bad service is plagiarism. The title above stole my attention, and since it was posted on June 27, the magazine has not responded. Sorry folks, the link is in Malay. The “Saji” magazine is a food magazine published by Utusan Karya Sdn. […]
