Selling My Apple Macbook Air 11

I am letting go of my Macbook 11 inch for RM 1800 (negotiable) because I rarely use it and already have a Macbook 13.

The Macbook 11 was normally used to present during meetings with customer, play movie during vacation and primarily for mobility. Most of my work happens on the iMac and Asus Laptop, rarely used for heavy duty stuff.

It’s in mint condition and I’ve got to say it’s not exactly light and very sturdy aluminum exterior. There’s a few scuffed at the edges and bottom, and some buttons are shiny other than that, it’s close to brand new. Included, home made case (have been washed) and Case Logic sling bag.

Price is highly negotiable, I really want people to benefit from using it. Continue reading “Selling My Apple Macbook Air 11”

Maxis Astro Broadband IPTV, Dial Up is 10 Times Better.

Screen Shot 2013-10-28 at 4.40.54 PM

We’ve just changed our broadband package from Unifi to Maxis Astro IPTV, in my opinion it’s THE WORST internet and cable service I’ve come across. Here’s a video showing that I’ve capture while watching football. It happened so many times, hence why I was able to capture this footage.

In the tv commercial, they depicted football fans streaming a football game online and faced difficulty when the ball was stuck half way through.

Not sure to celebrate or not? Watch the Video

It was exactly what I felt while watching the game yesterday.

To make matters worst, it’s a nightmare getting the Astro guys on the line. Maxis.. pfttt.. don’t bother dealing with no 1 CON TELCO in Malaysia. They won’t even publish their support number on their website. They couldn’t care shit about your line or your account. I HATE rambling for nothing, but the service is really poor. Here’s the difficulties I’m facing.

  1. SUCKY Internet Connection. Can’t even maintain a consistent speed let alone meet the 10Mbps. It’s rubbish. I’m constantly forced to use my phone from time to time.
  2. WiFi Router Mega Crap. You put the router next to a pile of feces, the feces is better. Lose signal easily, no signal in our room, timeout when a 5 people connect and hangs a lot of time.
  3. The IPTV Remote provided is STUPID. You really have to align the remote properly to change channel.
  4. STUCK IPTV. It’s the most annoying thing is when the screen is stuck. Bloody hell, it happens while watching football.
  5. Non EXISTENT Customer Support. Just when you get someone on the line, they drop the call. Where is your call center? Under the sea ke? Plus they don’t publish the support number openly.

If you’re planning to change to Maxis Astro Broadband IPTV deal or whatever feces they call it, FORGET IT. It’s useless. Stick to the old setup, silo Astro and TM Unifi unit. Seriously don’t even think about it even if you’re getting waived. I would normally rate TM Unifi 3.5 star, but having dealt with Maxis-Astro, I’d give 8 stars. It’s just that bad.

ps: Maxis-Astro rep, this is seriously one unhappy customer.

Salam semua,

Terdapat banyak jaringan pengangkutan di Kuala Lumpur, salah-satunya adalah sistem KTM Komuter. Dahulu KTM Komuter ini, memang terkenal dengan kelewatan, busuk dan tidak mesra pelanggan. Namun, sejak 2-3 tahun lepas, banyak perubahan telah dilalukan.

Di antara perubahan adalah koc wanita (berwarna pink, aku pernah masuk, pastu semua perempuan pandang slack je), gerabak keretapi baru, lebih kerap perjalanan, yang paling penting, wangi! Kini KTM Komuter melangkah setapak lagi ke hadapan, sistem jadual perjalanan diintegrasi terus ke Google Maps.

Jadual KTM Komuter

Sekarang kalau anda mahu menggunakan KTM Komuter, tak perlu tunggu meroyan lama-lama dekat platform atau terkinja-kinja mencari Jadual Perjalanan KTM Komuter, anda boleh semak terus di laman web Google Maps. Cara menggunakan mudah sahaja, cuma klik pada stesen keretapi, paparan masa akan terus ditampilkan.

Peringatan: Ketepatan sistem ini tidak boleh diambil bulat-bulat kerana mungkin berlaku gangguan dan sebagainya. Cuba anggarkan dalam campur-tolak 5 minit. Lebih baik sampai awal, dari terlepas. 😀

Apa-apa pon, Beribu-ribu-ribu tahniah kepada KTM Komuter!

ps: Aku selalu pergi KL Sentral untuk meeting, walaupun ada motor, public transport lagi mudah untuk parking dan tidak tersepit-sepit celahan kereta.

Belajar dari Terbaik: DenaiHati Network

This post is brought to you by Denaihati Network.

So what is this Denaihati Network (DHN)? I asked myself the same thing when I first came across this. The tagline, “Hidupkan Untuk Memberi” left deeper curiosity. DenaiHati.com is a blog, meanwhile Denaihati Network is all the social medias, blog buddies, friends, facebook groups, Keek followers and instagram followers that is connected to DenaiHati blog.

DHN is best known for winning Social Media Week Award in 2011 and 2012 also being generous to other bloggers.

Blog Review

I was tasked by brother Ilham to post a review about Denaihati Blog.

denaihati1

His blog was messier when I visited years ago (I’m on Google Pages so I don’t visit the original blog as often). The new theme looks decent. However there are areas that can be further improved.

1. Sticky post – There’s a repetition of content from sticky post to new post. New post will always be on top, therefore need not be a sticky post. Instead, DH should use sticky post to reignite old posts or ones he wants people to focus.

denaihati2

2. Images on other post – While it is important to keep the blog lightweight, image or photography helps to boost and expand reader’s curiosity. I find that other than sticky post, other post does not have image to represent the content (on front page). This will be a show stopper for some.

3. Real estate – Today’s most common resolution is 1366px x 768px. With this information, coupled with our reading behavior of scanning the entire screen, DH has loads to lose. Upon loading only 2 posts are visible and 4 ads. It can be optimized to 6-7 posts with maybe more than 4 ads. Some of the best examples are Amanz.my, Azmanishak.com, negaraku.my and oren.my

4. Colors – As I scroll down, I can’t help but feel washed away. It was colorful with green, black and white as it’s main theme (much like Green Lantern) but died by time I reach the bottom of the page. This can be fixed by adding pictures and colorize the footer.

DenaiHati Activities

1. Sepetang Bersama Bloggers – I have personally been invited to this event before. We all had our chance to share our opinion and mingle around. It was fun meeting people who shares the same interest.

2. Blogging Class – Learn to make money by DenaiHati Network. Definitely the one best ways to generate passive income. This class is a crash course, can be too fast for non IT literate. However reaping the benefit isn’t hard, just as long as you keep your eyes on the prize. Me? I blog for fun, money comes as bonus.

3. Active Facebook Groups – Best place to share your content, learn from experience bloggers and mingle around. Denaihati Facebook Group.

Seminar Buat Duit Dengan Blog

There are a number of bloggers out there are doing this full time. To name a few, beautifulnara, tianchad, broframestone, kak Jie and more. So what’s stopping you from making money from blogging?

Denaihati will host a seminar on 19th of May 2013 at Singgahsana Hotel PJ.

  • RM 50 for registration before 5th of May (early bird discount)
  • RM 100 for registration after 5th of May

Why should you attend?

1. Curious about blogging and how to generate money from blogging

2. It’s only RM50 for a knowledge that was acquire through thick and thin for years of blogging. Mind you, not just one person experience, its a collective.

3. Potential networking. This could also be a chance for you to share your business with others.

4. Meet experience bloggers. Most (or perhaps all) are friendly bunch. Best place to mingle with like minded people.

You can register through this link. This activity usually happens once a year. It’ll be a waste if you decide to do it next year. Some piece of advise, don’t do today’s work tomorrow, do tomorrow’s work today!

ps: My May activity is kinda packed during that weekend (19th of May) I have wedding to attend to up north. Will have to miss this seminar 🙁

 

Shave By A Woman

This is the fourth post for the Philips Aqua Touch electronic shave review. In this post I’m supposed to create a video to demonstrate how easy it is to shave using the review unit.

To make it interesting, we are required to get an opposite gender to help us shave. In this case my victim is my wife. It’s her first time helping me shave so I have spare her for any mishap or missed hair. Normally I’d ask her to pluck what I call “bulu sesat”.

Though was a sloppy shave, it does prove 2 points.

1. Shaving using Aqua Touch is easy.
2. Letting someone else shave for you is terrifying. Ain’t easy like the movies.
