INDONESIA & MALAYSIA Should Be Friends

Friday, September 11th, 2009

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” […]

Economy Crisis Hits Malaysia

Thursday, January 22nd, 2009

For the last couple of months I realized that the world economy is heading downwards. Europe and America have had their worst moments, Asia had a taste but Malaysia didn’t really feel anything. To be really honest the first sign I saw was last week when they announced that around 100K people in the manufacturing […]

The US Boycott Dilemma

Saturday, January 10th, 2009

Since Israel started to attack Gaza many parts of the world has started to organize events such as demonstration and peaceful gatherings to voice out against Israel actions, and as usual the ally – United States of America. WARNING: The fact that I am currently serving an American company might cause me to be biased […]

SpongeBob SquarePants

Thursday, January 1st, 2009

I have been working from home for almost a month now, and to cope with loneliness from the lack of company and with the noise produced by the work next door I always have my TV turned on while working. I used to hear about SpongeBob and I know what he is but never bothered […]

Starbucks Sizing System

Monday, December 1st, 2008

I was watching HBO when one of the short sections in between the movies were aired. It was about the new movie “Role Models”. I have always wondered why Starbucks have the sizing system “Tall” (small), “Grande” (medium), and “Venti” (large). It’s plain weird. Interestingly Danny Donahue (played by Paul Rudd) mentioned this directly in […]

Shutdown Day!

Sunday, April 20th, 2008

I was casually cruising at a friend’s blog when I saw his post about the Shutdown Day. It’s just a simple experiment to see how many people in this world can live a day without their PC. I joined the site, and will definitely turn off all of my notebooks on that day. My servers […]

MasterCard/Visa Promotion Fraud Attempt

Wednesday, January 16th, 2008

What great way to start 2008 with a pile of money obtained from other people’s credit cards? I am writing to share my experience today. I am lucky I am not that stupid although I didn’t realize an obvious bit earlier during the call. By the way the call came is as “Private” Caller: Is […]

Would You Return A Cellphone Found In The Streets?

Thursday, August 2nd, 2007

I received my copy of the August 2007 edition of Reader’s Digest yesterday and IMHO it is the most interesting edition for me since I started my subscription about a year ago. I ain’t gonna talk about all of the articles this time, but one of them. RD made an experiment where they sent their […]

Global Warming Effects Geeks Too

Monday, May 7th, 2007

In the area where I live (and work) it has been so hot for quite while now. Since I am working in an air-conditioned office at work and in my home office I did not really realize how seriously the heat has become until I received multiple alerts from my SMART monitoring software. Seagate disks […]

One Day Blog Silence

Saturday, April 21st, 2007

On April 30th 2007, the Blogosphere will hold a One-Day Blog Silence in honor of the victims at Virginia Tech. 32 innocent people died at the US college massacre. I support this as a human, and since it has got nothing to do with religion, politics (hope not!) or anything else. Massacres are bad. I […]

Hi Metallica, I am Megadeth

Wednesday, April 4th, 2007

Listening to Hitz.fm this morning on my way to work, heard a news that a couple in Sweden wants to name their daughter Metallica (and the authority does not allow them to). Searched the Net and found some news: http://www.shoutmouth.com/index.php/news/7510 http://punkbands.com/index.php?id=22715 Apparently they are trying to combine their 2 first names and came out with […]

Belisi Fashion

Sunday, January 14th, 2007

Are you into designer clothings? Or at least branded, fashion? I have never heard of this particular name in the fashion industry before: Belisi. Or perhaps I am not very familiar with the fashion world. What I wear to work is a collared shirt and jeans 😉 This is a true amazing story of how […]

Move To Dubai

Sunday, January 7th, 2007

This Monday will be the last day for my boss working in the Cyberjaya office. Shes leaving for Dubai soon. Thinking back, another colleague of mine moved to Abu Dhabi about a year back. Oil and gas is indeed a very big industry over there. Dubai is the second highly populated country in the United […]

Free KFC For E.T.

Thursday, November 16th, 2006

I’m not sure whether all of you have ever heard or even knew E.T.? He (it) is an ugly looking creature from a movie when I was a kid. KFC has recently changed their logo for the 3rd time since it was ever designed. And guess what did they do? They built a massive 87,500 […]
