Barclays Premier League : Malaysian Companies Boleh!

What can be done if a Malaysian don't get to feature in the world famous Barclays Premier League (English soccer league), but still want to bring the fame to Malaysia?

Putting Malaysia or Malaysian companies name on the soccer jersey lo.. This is almost the same principle as 'if you can't beat them, join them'. In Malaysian term, 'if you can't be in them, be on their shirt'.

Malaysia Boleh!

Only Hard Work Can Bring Result

I am confident that I will have a tablet very soon, either iPad 2 or Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1. I can sense that I will own one the hard way and this is why I am busy researching for contest that gives the tablet as the prize. The main reason is because I can't afford it, and the other reason is because getting it from contest is more meaningful. Somehow, I haven't have enough luck to win without effort. 99% of my winnings came from hard work, unfortunately. Therefore, I don't put much hope in winning it through swiping my Citibank credit card.

If you ask why do I want one, frankly I don't have a concrete answer. Might end up under utilizing it whereby it will be left idle for most of the days. Possible reasons such as no connection, no time due to work commitment or difficult to use as compared to laptop.

But as someone who is always thinking, I don't easily let those reasons kill my enthusiasm. Now, I have few counter proposal why I should own one, such as learning on the go even during traffic jam, polishing my writing skill with more blogging opportunities as I'm always connected, and hoping to find my blue ocean strategy via ebay.

My motto: Only hard work can bring good result.

Today's 1Joke : 17 Sep 2011

I was curious initially when I read the headline of this news, but my instinct told me that it must be related the movie by Namewee "Nasi Lemak 2.0". Upon reading further, it came out to be true, and I thought it was a piece of crap news.

The article mentioned that our Home Minister advised the general public who is hurt (tersinggung) or not satisfied with Namewee can complain to him. Having said that, I wonder if it is really his scope of work to handle such a thing.

Sometimes, the Malaysian media can be perceived as a sub-standard organization. The way they are doing things now, it only paint a very bad picture of the Malaysian media because readers are fed with trivial stuff such as this. Supposedly, they report more on what our Minister does to help improve the country's economy, stamping the FDI outflow, upgrading our Third World mentality to First World, or brainwashing Mat Rempit to be useful group of people.

I think this is very much related and depended on how the media works. If they choose to keep on reporting such news, people will soon see that our Government is not doing what they are voted to do. Besides, sometimes it is the people who is giving the Government a bad name by going to the media for such a trivial stuff.

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Straight Talk for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

Are we able to live without a phone nowadays? I don't think anyone will, even a 100 years old uncle. With inflation inflating and salary decreasing, it is time that people needs to find ways to save, and there is no better ways to start with one of the most essential thing in life; our handphone.

Saving Money - Logical Tips

I'm picking up some points from "No Dumb Ways to Save: 7 Super Easy Ways to Stash Away More Money" article to be shared around. The following are 2 tips that are quite logical and reasonable, and I think they are workable for me.

"At the grocery store, I organize the food on the conveyor belt at the register by price, with the most expensive items at the back. That way, I can keep an eye on the total and easily pluck the pricier stuff off if I'm nearing my budget,"
>> This requires practice and patience. The more you do it, the cleverer and richer you will become. This has some similarities with the "Sleep On It" tip, whereby the delay is practised during shopping. You have to think slow and thorough, but act fast while you are queuing in the line.

Institute a 24-hour wait period before purchasing anything on your "want" list. "It's amazing what a day can do to your desire level!" says REDBOOK's money expert, Beth Kobliner. "This rule has saved me thousands in what would have been regretted splurges over the years."
>> This is a very effective one. I would say most of the dream items in my mind are not essential, and the purchase can be delayed. Once I am allowed to think over it again, the sudden urge to buy will die off eventually. One of the example is iPad 2; looks good, feels good, but if I lied to myself to wait for another day, I will still have the good feeling because of the money saved. RM1,500 is not a small sum to many, but it is to me...

Knowing Yourself

It is important to know if you are personality signifies a Worker or a Breaker. You may be blamed or teased inappropriately all because your personality is different from your complainant.

This is how I differentiate them.

> Someone who will lie down mid of working and wake up returning to his work.
> Working is their priority, and taking a rest in the middle of working is important for them to recharge and continue doing their job.
> A Worker can sleep early and wake up early, not feeling guilty.
> Their usual complaint are "There are too many things to do" and "I cannot finish in time".

> Someone who will work until he's satisfied before taking the break.
> To them, resting is more important. It doesn't mean they are not hardworking, but the priority is different from a Worker. Their ultimate goal is to get that rest, that is why their mind is programmed to complete the task no matter how late it is.
> A Breaker usually sleeps late, and wake up late after feeling satisfied of their work previously.
> Their usual complaint is "I don't have enough sleep".

Yesterday's 1Joke : 10 Sep 2011

Wonder why are there so many funny stories coming up in our country. I think I can soon compile a list of the jokes since the 8 Mar 2008 tsunami. More significant ones were happening in the past 2 years.

I just read another that I do not know will cause any change in the history text books or Muzium Negara exhibits or not. Now only we knew that our country was not ruled at all by British before!! This was informed to us proudly by Prof Zainal Kling that I saw in Malaysiakini.

Picking up a line from those commentator in the Malaysiakini website (which sounded very much true), then why are we celebrating Merdeka?? If we are not sick, we don't go to see doctor. If we are all this while independent, then why need to celebrate Independence le??

Another thing, he mentioned that our history books are wrong and need to be corrected. Then my question is, why only now this was voiced out when he should have known it for a long time? Is it because there is this controversial discussion happening lately? Or because this is a scam to further change our history? How come this was not announced by our famous Prof Khoo since he's a historian?

Does this also mean that Malaysia has been joining the Commonwealth Games and CHOGM meetings illegally?
