It’s really been a testing month for me. My patience and my positivity most of all.

Whoever said a wedding is affordable, fuck you. Just admit you didn’t want to create the memorable wedding and you didn’t want to make it happen.

Hotels in KL are charging exorbitantly for their ballrooms from minimum of RM1800 not including the 16% service charge and government tax. And, there aren’t Chinese restaurants which are nice yet cater to non-halal patrons. If you’re an entrepreneur in F&B, think about that.

Work too has been crazy. Malaysian clients think time stops for them and assume everything can be done very quickly. When you explain to them, they think you’re the one giving excuses, instead of using their ears to listen.

Well, I can’t wait to start on our side project. It’ll channel new breath and a different scenery. No more need to explain to people who don’t listen in the first place.

Can’t wait for September to start and leave this grey hair manifestation month of August.


You son of a bitch

Woke up this morning to find someone selling personal information of high income Malaysia people. WTF?!

OM Industrial Materials spammer
Damn you!

Seriously, I know rumors say Web 3.0 is all about data. But if the future of data is pawning it off like the black market, I might as well start training to be a ninja in hacking.

If there was a Malaysian body whom I know would take action against people like this, I would report them without hesitation. Best of all, email was signed off even with the dude’s name, company name, phone and fax.

Can we trust Pos Malaysia?

The main headline of TheStar made me sick. Credit card fraud has reached a stage even involving Pos Malaysia postman! The very people responsible to deliver simple letters to wedding gifts from relatives who may be overseas.


This has diminished all my credibility of using Pos Malaysia’s services. Especially when I, myself am applying a credit card. It’s like if my bank told me they’re going to use PosLaju, I’d either tell them I’ll collect it from their nearest branch or I’ll refuse to apply a card with them.

Not to mention, Pos Malaysia has been actively advertising their PostMe service on TV. The spillover of this credibility crisis will not be overlooked by those customers. Who’s to guarantee my Ducati item will be sent to me?

I pray this Pos Malaysia incident slaps the higher-ups in the face and they think through to come up with a good solution. Otherwise, I’ll never use Pos Malaysia – ever again.

The telco got my IC wrong for 2 years!

I’ve decided to switch my 5 year plus loyalty of Hotlink to a DiGi Postpaid. My first ever number was when my Mum gave me her mobile. Back then, I was on a 010 number. And I think some telco recently re-activated it again, forgot who.

Why the switch?

Well, primarily it’s because DiGi’s data plan is fairer compared to Maxis. It’s not the data cap which makes me vomit blood, but the fact of the charges I incur if I run up the bill. Simple as that. I don’t think I considered Celcom because most of my friends are on DiGi and they’ve been praising it’s data reliability.

What about coverage?

Yes, I know DiGi’s still painting Malaysia yellow. But I’d rather put my investment and loyalty in a brand who does things right, rather than a brand banking on its size.

The switching experience so far…

Easy. I dropped into a nearby DiGi centre and took a number. The wait was about 45 minutes as there were lots of people. But when it got to my turn, I just told the guy what plan I wanted inclusive of data and all he needed to do was photocopy my IC and ask me to pay RM50 for the initial cost of the data.

Awesome but…

It’s taking me longer than 24 hours to activate my number now. Because DiGi informed me apparently my IC number at Maxis/Hotlink wasn’t correct. Seriously, WTF?!

I called the Hotlink customer service to clarify this. Though I’m informed I can resolve this matter at the nearest Maxis centre, I’m still finding the idea of a wrong IC number stupid. Because I’ve had my number for 2 years or longer, and only now, do I know my IC number was registered wrong.

How could this have happened?

Well, obviously someone somewhere screwed up filling up the form when I got this number. But I also personally felt this is why the government needs to work closer with private sectors. The IC number is a sensitive and personal information to all residents. Therefore, shouldn’t it have been verified in the first place?

Otherwise, it goes to show, anyone can register a number with a fake IC number easily. In addition, making enforcement to register mobile numbers with your full name and IC inaccurate and easily tampered.

Well, I hope this doesn’t continue to happen in 10 years.
