Paper Price To Increase by 50%

Paper price

I guess it’s now screaming “RECYCLE ME!” in case you missed Sunday’s Headline. The price of paper & stationery may increase to 50% by year end.

For many of those who don’t really know me, I am all ‘green’. Also being one of the reason of not participating in the last general election, no party preached about global warming or going green.

As a web developer, my work evolves around computer. My thoughts are usually penned on my used Lab Book aka buku amali. I usually cram everything onto my Google Docs, use emails & pdf for official matters and try my best not to print anything. Heck I don’t even buy newspaper! (again, that’s why I built Negaraku.net).

The beauty of using Google Docs is collaboration. You can share documents with others without having to give multiple copies. Best of all, it’s free! Google Docs in layman terms [youtube].

It’s long sigh if you’re a boss, but this is your social obligation. So “Think Before You PRINT“. It’ll cost a bomb (soon).

ps: It’s good to see Multi-National Companies have these small reminder to save paper on their email signatures. GLCs and GOCs? Non. You should, because I have one.

pss: Now you know where Maxis got the idea for their latest tv ads?

Inevitable. Try to re-use paper. Unless submitting a proposal or coursework. Then it’s different.

Student ni selalu tersalah print. Check dulu byk kali before print. Bukan mahal ke murah, kire jimat dan selamat kan alam.

Yes, Maxis tiru iklan dari YouTube. Tak malu.

A’ah lah… Maxis meniru! hehehe … My sister and I really like to watch that Maxis ads, simple but creative KONON! Now I know where the idea came from.. cis! :mrgreen:

p.s: A have a box full of papers in my room – trying to recycle … almost flowing now with all the unnecessary information from Digi bills… even though I signed up for the e-billing, they still send me paper copies of bill summary and addresses of their branches! What a waste! :down:

that is called liabiliti hehe
tapi harga aset sentiasa naik.
kawan saya pernah cakap,kalau nak kaya,kumpullah aset sementara harga masih tak lagi terlalu tinggi. nanti harga aset tu dah tinggi/semakin tinggi,kita pulak tak mampu nak beli :smile:

:roll: I always rewrite my note after class.. because it’s difficult to write in an organized ways when we learning something. During the class, I would concentrate on the explanation, then write it down ASAP before the lecture move to another topic! ❗

p/s: Saffa pakai kertas kajang. ❓

identical method, but I study first before going into class. So I can sit there a listen tentatively and relevant questions ❗ Note taking isn’t my best criteria. Xerox je semua orang

Huhu.. suma subject memang saffa akan study dulu, but.. for math.. memang sangat susah.

Sbb text book math tak berapa selari dengan apa yang belajar kat kelas. rasa macam agak rugi sbb beli text book tu. Ah.. nevermind!

I need a workbook for math! one isnt enough.. mana nak cari…
