2 In A Row...

Hey, guys! I am back. I was really busy with the rats for the past few days. Unrealisingly, 1 week has passed and 2 more weeks to go for the toxicity study! And life gets tougher too because the rats have grown much larger in size. =>

While I was browsing thro' the internet, I found that this article really interesting. "Daughters are more expensive than sons!" Why is it so?!

First thing first, they have more expensive hobbies. When it comes to shopping, no doubt that they will have a shopping bag in hand everytime they shop unless they made their mind clear of window shopping. Boys! They just know about running around the football field or playing around the basketball court. Next, when it comes to demands, girls are definitely more demanding than boys! When you give a box of chocolates to them, girls most probably would see whether it suites them or not. But boys, they would just keep quiet and start eating the chocolates like no body's business. Ha-ha. How funny are they! This is worth to laugh about.

When we are talking about today's world, there is an obvious status difference between the poor and the rich especially in those 3rd world countries or war-torn countries. It is not just about financial status, but also about the power, the influence on others and many more. The rich will definitely enjoy their powerful and wealthy life but the poor will only think about how to survive tomorrow. Sometimes it is really a pity to see some kids begging along the streets, mums carrying their children and walking bear-footed on concretes under the hot sun and so on! But what can you do? How can you help them? Or did you ever thought of helping them? Like mum reminds us that "Not to waste food." is already a very good example. This is worth to think about.

Saving

Many people do spend more than what they earn, that's why they can't become a rich person. But spending is not a bad thing for the country because it can boost up the economical growth. When you spend more, you can boost more!
.
So what is it got to do with saving? Yea, nothing to do with it. It is exactly the opposite of spending only. While I was walking in the shopping mall today, this guy from XXX-bank approached me to promote a new type of saving with can earning big money within 30 years. When it comes to money, I am really interested in it. But after awhile of chit-chatting, I found out that it is nothing to do with saving. It is actually a kind of safe investment like mutual funds. Ha-ha. How do you define saving when you need a sum of money as a modal for you? And moreover, it needs you to put a certain amount of input every month to ensure that your account doesn't run dry.
.
As a student, I will never think of doing big investment now. Because I can say that I can hardly vomit a few hundred ringgit out every month to put into a bank account. Saving is actually all depends on yourself. It is whether you have the determination to save or not to save. It is simple as that. If I can give you this amount of money today, this doesn't mean that I can give the same amount next month. It can be less, very reluctantly it can be more. What the concern in today's world is actually people does not really know how to save. I am sure that many people will have the mind-set that if I can't save up today, I will do it tomorrow. But what if the same thing happens tomorrow? It will be a never ending story.
.
If you are already 40 years old, will you ever think of when are you going to retire? I am sure you have already thought about it. But have you ever thought of whether you have sufficient money to sustain until you die? Recently, one of the European country did a survey on this. They found out that many people actually do not have enough money to sustain their life until they die. Ok, maybe many people have different opinion in this matter. Because I may not get married , so I have no one to take care of me in the future. Even though all these are assured for you, there is no harm to think about this matter.
.
Enjoy and have a nice day.

Customer Services

Unexpected.. Really unexpected.. I didn't know that I got so many friends, my birthday wishes exceeded 100. That was crazy! Anyway, thanks everyone.

.


Some customer services are really bad nowadays. I can't deny that companies are now keeping on hiring staffs without giving any proper trainings. So that is why customer services are now becoming from bad to worse. Sometimes I am not sure whether these people understand what is customer service. Some may just think that it is just about crapping with the customer without giving any proper information and customers will just blindly accept what they say! Mainly it is because they know that consumers do not know how to "complain" or knowing their consumers' rights.
.
Last week, I met with such an incident. I went for photo printing at one of the photo shop near my place. I gave the soft copy exactly 1 week before I need it because the shop keeper says that she needs 1 week to process it as she needs to handle this to her HQ. As 1 week went passed, no calls from them. So I called up the branch which I went to, but my phone was not answer. Then I called up the HQ, they said that that branch has closed down and my photos transferred to another nearby branch. Fine, I double confirmed with that branch to make sure that my photos were there. Surprisingly, they said that they did not have my photos because they had lost the softcopy.
.
What a crap! See, I don't know where is their sense of responsibility. First, if the branch that I went to was closed down, why can't they call me up and tell me about this. I don't mind if you call me to collect at another branch as long as I can get my photos on time. And secondly, if they lost the softcopy, why can't they call me up and let me know earlier, so that I can provide them with another softcopy. After that, I called them to provide me a solution as I need the photos on that day itself, but they kept on saying that they need to follow the proper procedures which they will take another 2 working days to process the photos. I was very reluctant because they are trying to find an easy way to out without solving the case, 1 of the branch even said that "I pay you back the deposit lar!" How rude is she!
.
Come on, this is not about the matter of money. If I know such an incident will happen, I will not step into any of their photo shops. Finally, this case was dragged till late evening whereby the HQ has closed. I had no choice but to call the manager to speak to me. It was really frustrating dealing with them because they said that they will call back but they didn't do so for many times already. Huu. I called up the manager and sounded her nicely, "How long more do you want me to wait? Till tomorrow? Till next week? What kind of customer service is this!" Luckily she was polite and calm to talk to me. She finally deal a better price, so that I can compensate for any of my losses. But I don't know whether she will keep her words or not! Or else it is time to complain to the consumer tribunal.
.
Dear friends, many people are now taking things for granted on consumers because they know that consumers are afraid to make complaints, consumers do not know their consumers' rights. What for they need to improve their services to you! That is the mentality they are having now. Remember, everyone plays a role in improvising customer services. It is not about me only! Without you, it really makes a big difference!

Enjoy and have a nice day.

Happy Birthday to Me

Happy Birthday to Me.

Now I know what is the real function of Facebook, it is not about Mafia Wars and Restaurant City. This is the first time that I replied so many posts. Even though it is a very tedious job, but I really appreciate a lot.

First, I had dinner with my family on Saturday night. My wish is to have Malay food but wish is not granted. So we went for Thai food at Jalan Alor. Later on, my brothers brought me out for a drink at ĺ®…alk at Pandan Indah. It is a very new cafe and a very nice place. Maybe it is because that I had a few bottle of beer, and that is why I love the atmosphere a lot. I like the people there especially the female singer. I really admire her because she can sing a lot of tough songs which I think that normal people will not be able to sing. Haha. Then we have our second round at cyber cafe. At least I broke my record that I didn't kill any of my teammates. Thanks to them.

Then thanks to my U'mates as well. THough they are now at Langkawi, but they tried to blast up my phone last night. Too bad that they couldn't get through because I slept already and my phone was is silent mode. "Not forgotten" Wish them enjoy and have a nice holiday trip.

Everything was simple but nice. Thanks and have a nice day.

Help Offered But Not Appreciated

We can't really expect that many things in life to be perfect....

I can still remember how was the experience at the drug rehabilitation center few months back. I can still remember what experiences of those in-mates shared with me. I can still remember many more but what they deeply regreted throughout the years was they can't turn back time. At many times, help was offered to them but they tend to ignore and get themselves into bigger trouble. It was not only themselves but including those whom they knew became their victim. But after being drug addicts, it is really difficult to 'clean' themselves, what's more if it involves other people.

Sometimes life is like the story above, we must really think before we act. Many people out there are innocent. Get yourself involved is already bad enough but not others because you may turn things from bad to worse.

Enjoy and have a nice day.

I Got My Samsung Corby Wifi

I have been waiting for this time for so so so so so so and so long. After surveying for new hand phones for few weeks, i got myself a brand new Samsung Corby Wifi finally. Hee. This was actually the motivation to end my second week of exam.



Hmm. I can say that this is a very economical phone, "PLC" package all within. As for me, I don't ask for the style and design, but the main concern is actually about the features. If the phone doesn't serve me well, no point of being good looking. It's something like girls, physical appearance is just a temporary beauty. But what is most needed in them is actually how they interact with you. If they do not go along well with you, no point of going with them. It will just be a temporary mutual relationship. Is this true?

So, what I ask for is actually very simple. As a student, I do not need any 3G features, GPS and so on. I just need it to go on-line and hang on to the internet. Since the campus is a so-called wifi area, so isn't it a waste if your phone do not have any WLAN feature? Not only in campus, many other places such as Old Town Coffee House, Mc Donald's, Star Bucks, Toyota Service Center, shopping malls and so on are now having their own servers for you to be connected to the internet easily with just 1 click. I am sure in years to come, more places will have this wifi servers to attract you. But too bad that I can't play Mafia Wars by using it unless I pay money. Ha-ha.

Being Accussed.

Oops. Sorry guys. I didn't realise that I didn't post anything for the month of May yet. Anyway, I will try my best to give some updates and hot topic discussions today. Though exam just ended today, but I still got 1 more final event to move on before everything is done for this semester. Pray hard that Friday can come faster. So that I can start my 1 week break before I start my research project.
.
Hot?! So what's hot in the newspaper these few days? I am sure that many people would have their own personal opinion about "The cop is charged" rather than something about Thomas Cup. Yea, Malaysia just got through the quarter-final and they will be facing China on Friday. So back to topic. I do have my own opinion because I am very much disagree with him being charged now. I am sure that it really makes a very big impact not only on him and his family, but it will also affect the whole community. If I am the policeman, I will leave the force immediately.
.
Sometimes, it is all about fate. At many times, people will not appreciate for your effort in doing something good. Only God knows that you did well but human just do not know how to realise something which is present around them. That's why many will not even bother you if you treat them well. For him, he is really a brave policeman. I salute him! He dares to challenge what is ahead by ACTION, I find no fault in him for his brave action. In a 'you die or I die' situation, which do you prefer? I will not know who is a real criminal or who is a fake one, what I know is that he did his best! If there is still critics, I wonder how will they react if they are at the same situation!
.
Because of 1 boy, 1 family destroyed, 1 policeman gone, 1 impact on the society and 1 new freedom for some 'minors'. "Try to know your own mistakes before pointing your finger to others!" Don't forget that 1 finger pointing at others but 4 fingers are still pointing back to your self. I will never be pleasant when these kind of topics occur.
.
Enjoy and have a nice day.
