Happy 4th Birthday Lazada!

Leave a Comment
First of all, Happy Birthday to Lazada. Thank you for providing us a great shopping experience online and may you continue to serve us well in the future.

I really love shopping in Lazada. It's easy, convenient and sometimes allows me to purchase items at a discount too!

Here are the top 10 items I would like to buy from Lazada Malaysia this birthday.

1. Microsoft Surface Pro 4
Super awesome piece of gadget from Microsoft. Can't wait to get my hands on it. Sweet!

2. Apple iPhone 7
- Not officially released yet, but I am betting that Lazada would be one of the first online retailers in Malaysia to offer it once it is available.

3. Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge
One of the most anticipated smartphones this year with all-rounded improvements from the previous Galaxy series. Available for order on Lazada now!!

4. GoPro HERO4
- Quite pricy but would be great to have for adventurous people who would like to document their experience with clear photo/video.
5. Apple iPad Pro
The everyday convenient and helpful Tablet to have, suitable for kids 3 years old up to adult aged 80 year old.

6. Flashforge Dreamer Series Dual Head 3D Printer
Not something that I really need at this moment but I guess boys should familiarize themselves with the future of printing sooner rather than later. Imagine this modern gadget available for sale on Lazada, no joke!

7. Sony Playstation 4
Would like to really spend my time gaming with my brother and nephew this coming holiday season.

8. Apple Macbook Pro
The beast of a computing power in a small package. Looking forward to increasing my productivity with the help of an Apple Macbook Pro.
9. Coffee Maker
- have not decided on a particular brand yet, there's just so many brands and makes to choose from on Lazada. Check out the link below:

10. Flat screen 3D LCD TV
- need a great display to build a superior entertainment system but undecided on which brand and makes yet as well. Seriously considering getting a Smart TV too.
Smart TV would be great!

Well honestly there are so many more things I would like to buy from Lazada but I guess the list would suffice for now. I shall make a new list again for my next year's birthday.

What do you think of my wish list? What does your wish list for this year looks like? Share with me in the comments.

Kajang by-election result inconclusive

1 comment
Congratulations Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail for winning Kajang by-election.

Here is the result:

Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail (PKR - PR) - 16,741 with a majority of 5,379 votes
Datin Paduka Chew Mei Fun (MCA - BN) - 11,362 votes

This win by Pakatan Rakyat (PR) is with reduced majority compared to GE13, however there is an increase in the popular vote in terms of percentage.

How did this happen? Simple, there is lower voter turnout compared to GE13 but of those who turned up, a larger percentage of voters backed PR's candidate.

What is the conclusion here? Inconclusive or and speculate all you want till the cows come home.

There are fewer candidates this time around. The voter sentiments changed, many events have happened since GE13 and different issues are on people's minds now.

What now?

Just wait and see. Focus on other more important issues gripping our beloved country. Lastly, would be interesting to see if this Kajang move eventually leads to a Selangor move as well.

Little insignificant help for Typhoon Haiyan victims

Leave a Comment
Just donated a small amount to the Typhoon Haiyan funds organized by ChurpChurp Malaysia. This is indeed noble and thoughtful efforts by the social media company. The world will certainly be a much better place when more people realize that they have a social responsibility and role to play (to help others in need) rather than just looking after their own well being and interests.

I have friend who actually went to the ground in Philippines to provide relief and first aid to the victims. May he and his team be blessed by the Almighty.

If you are keen to contribute too, visit the #ChurpForPH page below or donate to other fundraising organizers (just google or look in your local newspapers):

Thank you for making the donation effortless, only my earnings from ChurpChurp is deducted, no actual money came out from my wallet ;)

The donation drive will end on 22nd December 2013, look for my name in the donor's list later. Enjoy, stay safe and pray for our fellow comrades in Philippines.

The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug

Leave a Comment
Thanks to a good friend who managed to win 2 tickets to the premiere screening of The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug and was kind enough to invite me, I have a rather enjoyable day at TGV, Sunway Pyramid yesterday.

** mind you, the delay in the screening for about 1 hour was a turn-off **

My treasure acquired from the lost world of Sunway Pyramid ;P

No spoilers intended but suffice to say that the film is very entertaining, lots of actions, the computer generated images (CGI) looked real and the pace of the story is just about right. I like it more than the first film, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.

Ooooh, by the way, my favorite characters in this film are Tauriel and Bard.

First time joining an event organized by Nuffnang/ChurpChurp. Not too shabby, but I don't see any famous bloggers around. Or maybe they were there all along, just that I do not know the who's who of the Malaysian blogosphere.

I should make an effort to join more of such event. It will be like an adventure. To all those seasoned bloggers and event guests, hope to get to know you people more. Do leave the URL of your blogs in the comment or contact me using the contact form.

Looking forward to the next film in The Hobbit movies.

Congratulations Neobux 4th Anniversary

Just noticed Neobux's logo change today:

Yes, it is their 4th Anniversary and they are 4 years old. Wish them all the best and a great year ahead.

Read their post about them being in the 5th year and the discounts they are offering in conjunction with the celebration of their anniversary here:

We're officially in our 5th year

Neobux is no doubt a reliable PTC (paid-to-click) site. I would even go so far to say that it is THE reliable and honest PTC site. If there were any more such sites currently, they are pretty much inspired by Neobux. Correct me if I am wrong in the comments, but I believe Neobux is the pioneer in being an honest and reliable for the long-term PTC site.

I earned some small pocket money with them. You can too! These small change really helps at times. Others have even made hundreds and even thousands of dollars (some recurring monthly) from this site. Do you want to be one of them?

Let's embrace NewTwitter

Apparently NewTwitter has been gradually rolled out since September 14 but I only get to play with it a few days ago. The improvement or upgrade is much welcome, considering that there were not many (major) innovations coming from the microblogging giant since day 1 of its launch.

Honestly, the upgrade is not revolutionary. Twitter just added features which have long been demanded by its loyal users or are pretty standard on other social networking sites. Nevertheless, I believe this represents the first step for it to bring many more innovations to the table to improve users' experience in the near future.
The new interface of #NewTwitter
New features
  • New design with multiple tabs (@mentions, retweets, searches, etc.) in the timeline, recent and suggested activities and actions on the right.
  • Embedded content such as pictures and videos can be previewed and viewed directly on Twitter.
  • Users are able to discover related content of a Tweet such as additional information about the author and subject.
  • Mini profiles allow previewing of users that you come across without leaving the page (their account information, bio, recent Tweets, etc.).
 Major concerns by users and developers alike
  • Old Twitter background will not be displayed correctly in the new design.
  • Twitter desktop client softwares such as TweetDeck and Seesmic Desktop are rendered less useful and relevant now that some of their features have been incorporated in #NewTwitter.
Same old same old (things we are glad did not change)
  • Tweet still consists of 140 characters or less. Duh!
  • #NewTwitter seems more like an interface upgrade and functionality addition rather than a complete revamp. Hence existing applications using Twitter API should still function perfectly.
What are the responses to #NewTwitter? 
At this initial stage, we can only conclude that there are mixed reactions to #NewTwitter. Some hate it, some adore it, others are indifferent. Of course, there are also thousands of Twitter users who plead to be given access to the new Twitter. Here are some Tweets in response to this upgrade.

Nobody is forced to have the #newtwitter at this point, it's only a preview.

Tweeted by @DanOfficial
Yes but won't all of us need to switch to #newtwitter, eventually?

#newtwitter so far very cool, but still missing some nice #Tweetdeck features
Tweeted by @BizTechMBA
Really? I'm not sure what are those missing features. But being able to view embedded medias on #newtwitter is pretty cool!

I don't like the #newtwitter! And it thinks I'm in #Poland :D Ok, that's kinda cool:D:D
Tweeted by @Natalie_C_Sweet
I think you have to embrace #newtwitter, better sooner than later :D

WPWebHost Cheap Freedom Plan Hosting Up for Grabs (Limited Units!)

In conjunction with the launch of its new website appearance (redesign), WPWebHost announced a crazy one time discount up to 90% for its WPWebHost Freedom Plan.

What is offered under WPWebHost Freedom Plan?
  • Total web space: 50GB
  • Monthly data transfer: 500GB
  • FREE lifetime domain name
  • Host up to 50 domain names per account
  • cPanel
  • Unlimited subdomains, MySQL database, FTP accounts
  • Nightly backups
  • One-click WordPress auto-installer
  • Extensive free WordPress tips and video tutorials
To summarize, this Freedom Plan is suitable for small and medium business and individual use especially if you do not expect more than 30,000 unique visitors per month. You can always upgrade to higher plans later on if you need to expand beyond that figure.

Unfortunately, there are limited units under this promotion (first come, first served, while stock lasts). As I am writing this post, the discount code for 90% (10 units), 80% (30 units) and 70% (50 units) discounts have been fully utilized and those units have sold out. There is currently less than 300 units remaining under this promotion for the 60% and 50% discounts.
As shown in the image above, you can save even more if you immediately sign up for 2 years hosting. Based on the features in Freedom Plan, it is almost impossible to find another quality web host which could offer a better price than $2 / month. This is truly affordable hosting at its best!

Don't wait any longer, lock in the offer at the 60% discounted price now. Click on the link below to sign up:
