Bank Simpanan Nasional Should Provide Better Service

Thursday, June 3rd, 2010

I was instructed by my financial advisor to apply for the Al-Aiman credit card because of the low cash advance fee, to execute in a financial program, so I did and I got approved. However I received 2 cards (both Visa and MasterCard) although I only applied for a Visa card. Something fishy is going […]

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 […]

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 […]

Another AdSense Payment

Friday, January 30th, 2009

Today I managed to cash out my latest AdSense payment via Western Union. This is just to show a prove, and to motivate the unmotivated. Although the amount is not that huge, it’s still money and after subtracting the hosting cost there is some profit. Next objective is getting significant monthly payments (I currently put […]

On Property Purchase and Money3

Thursday, December 25th, 2008

As some of you might already know I bought a property in August, and the banking procedures were dragged until September where RHB Bank suddenly wished to change the loan amount. My agent, agent S was a 22 year old mobile agent I found through word of mouth. She was not helpful because she didn’t […]

PayPal in Bahasa Melayu

Friday, November 21st, 2008

I recently received an email from PayPal announcing that they now support additional languages. One of them is my native tongue, Bahasa Melayu. However when I clicked on the Malaysia flag it directs me to the same page as Bahasa Indonesia. Although many part of the Internet has already acknowledged and are well aware that […]

Web Hosting Reviews

Wednesday, August 27th, 2008

As a technical person in the office, and as a person who maintains (not own) more than 20 blogs my friends at work will usually ask me advice on their hosting requirements. The most important concern they have is usually the cost, and speed is usually second. I often ask them to use a portion […]

Chitika Oh Chitika

Wednesday, July 2nd, 2008

On 10 April 2007 I tried to apply for Chitika eMiniMalls just to try out my luck even though my number of visitors is much lower back then. I received a reply which I totally understand and accepted: In an effort to bring value to our publishers, we carefully consider each submission. During our review […]

First AdSense Payment

Saturday, April 5th, 2008

I have finally received my first AdSense payment since 2005. It’s not much but certainly a very good motivational factor to keep on blogging and making efforts to build websites. Since I opted for Western Union payment, it was actually a breeze. Filled a form and within 15 minutes I was holding cash in my […]

Local Ponzi Schemes Sprouting Everywhere

Sunday, December 30th, 2007

I don’t know about you but since several past weeks I have been receiving emails that claims to make you rich. Almost everyday, yeah. The unique thing about these emails are that they are in Malay, and originating from Malaysia and Singapore. So far I can easily classify these emails into a few categories: Mobile […]

Paypal to Debit Card, and AdSense to Western Union

Friday, October 12th, 2007

In spite of being extremely busy, yesterday I had a chance to glance over some of my daily readings. I am excited to find out that PayPal is now allowing Malaysians to withdraw money to Visa branded debit card. I need to check with Standard Chartered whether I can use my savings account which is […]

Google AdSense Allowed Sites

Sunday, September 9th, 2007

Have your publisher ID ever been used in other sites than yours, without your knowledge? I have never experienced the same problem but I guess some prominent publishers must’ve experienced this. AdSense now have an Allowed Sites feature where you can specify on which sites your publisher ID will be considered active. This is indeed […]

Photography As Passion

Wednesday, August 29th, 2007

Do you photograph? I have owned a Nikon D50 DSLR for about a year now, and also a Sony T30 for casual shots. It is indeed an expensive hobby as many people would put it once they see my camera. But this hobby can be converted to a source of income, and that is what […]

Nuffnang Error

Tuesday, August 14th, 2007

Today the site loads very slow, and as I was about to blame the network when I saw this: It seems that Nuffnang may be currently experiencing some difficulties. Since the ad block loads inline, the whole site waits for it. Oh by the way visitors from outside of Malaysia & Singapore will not see […]

Online Backup

Tuesday, July 10th, 2007

Do you have any backups of your data? Are you willing to lose precious data such as your digital photos, accounts, letters, spreadsheets, and the list goes on and on. Today, you hardly keep so many paper documents as everything is kept digitized for easy handling. Who are we kidding, it is convenient to travel […]
