My neighbour complained today that our cigarettes smell permeates until the hallway. The two neighbours said that they opened their doors all the time (my fault?)
So, we went to the mall and bought 1.4k air purifier! Aren’t we nice? We also clean our air conditioner filters as well.. Yeah that how I spent my new year eve. We will also purchase automatic air refresher that sprays in set interval time..

I left the box outside our house but behind the door grill to show how committed we are of being a good neighbour.. huh!

Collecting Stamps

I really like to travel; I wish I could tour the globe before I die. Thanks to wide bodies plane like Boeing 777 and the latest Airbus 320 travel is becoming more affordable. One commercial plane can fit over 500 human beings in one flight (wow so many) so you know how much money the airline can collect per flight? You do the math.

Seating in flight

I have been to Singapore (more than 5x), Australia (Sydney 1x) Thailand (Phuket & Krabi) and will be going to Madrid and Barcelona – Spain in February 2011. I will be collecting another immigration stamp. The flight will have a stopover in Schipol, Amsterdam but too bad I will not be passing through immigration there.

Stay @ Tropical Inn Jb

It is Eid / Raya and I need to book a hotel in Johor Bahru because my mom’s house could not fit 13 of us. As usual I will stay in a budget hotel in JB (for sleeping) I need air conditioned room lol.

This trip I stayed @ Tropical Inn.
Good points
1. Cheap Rm 130.00 per night
2. Near City Square Jb – In the city.
3. Ample parking (hotel compound area)
4. Good view compared to Sri Malaysia – I got bushes.
5. Clean although this hotel is sooooo old
6. Online direct booking through this web site workkss and way cheaper compared agents web site. I read somewhere phoning them directly and book can eliminate internet order charges, but I prefer printed confirmation so RM 30 ++ is ok
with me.
7. LCD screen – 29” Way better than old and cheap CRT TV

Tropical Inn - Room

Not Good
1. No free or paid Wifi or Lan internet (except in the lobby)
2. Old building (what do you expect for RM 130.00)
3. No cable or Astro (not complaining)

View from 19th Floor

I am currently in staying for the first night. I will update this posting after my stay.
Selamat Hari Raya

Moving Again

Feel calm. I have been procrastinating a lot these days. Time to shut my mouth and do more work.
I am able to procrastinate because I am the manager and nobody is supervising me. Well, I still have conscience and now I have to stop lazing around.

I will be moving to a new place. This new building is not under Time but Telekom Malaysia. I have to say goodbye to my Netlynx 4Mbps. I will try to apply for Streamyx 4Mbps or Unifi (I could see the cabling done around Taman Desa – Yes I move to a different building in Taman Desa! – I love this area).

Hope I will be getting 4Mbps soon. 1 Mbps is not sufficient for me.

Taxed by RMC

I called FedEx today I and  they informed me that my items will be taxed.   I dealt with Royal Malaysian Customs and I  do not want to beg them like I did with my network switch.  Actually  my items are all computer parts and non-dutiable.  I have checked  tariffs and RMC’s web site – yes non dutiable.  The items are RAID cards

Well 1 out of 15 shipments – one box got taxed RM 386.86( WTF) the item is  priced RM 700 per unit!

To avoid tax next time,

1. Order 1 Unit only

2. Make sure the item marked computer parts (easy to declare)

3. Apply MSC status company (tax free!)

This is a pain in the butt!.  Fedex clearance delay. Somebody in KLIA – customs officer probably sitting on my package.  I need the server parts quick. I have been getting the same parts for ages and they would not take this long. For god sake, the item is not drug, food, soil etc – computer parts! Maybe they are all on leave at the same time.

Forex Trading

I always wanted to participate in Forex trading. With 3.6 trillion transaction daily, I also want a piece of the action. Here comes el toro hehe 😛 nope Etoro. It allows you to invest with only USD 40. This is what we call  mini forex account.   The software can be downloaded from their web site. It has demo and real time mode. I made a fool of myself.  Invested in real trading account and lost USD 50  LOL.   I am losing again as I am writing this. I also made profit earlier today. Well in forex trading you need to control your emotions.   I am very emotional person and hate losing LOL. I just deposited 200 USD just to compensate my loss – yet I am losing LOL .  I would never imagine this day would come. You can participate in forex by sitting in front of your computer.

If you want to store your favourite music clips or full length movie  to your Iphone you need to convert the format to mp4. Yes Iphone stores video in .mp4 format. There are many converters around.  like .flv -> mp4 (flash movie)  or avi ->mp4.   The simple and free way is to use  this software
