Lazy Bug Strikes Again.....

Some must be wondering, why I didn't update blog lately. Getting slower and slower. Ya the lazy bug strikes back again.

Lately I get some works to do. Finally my boss assigned me something to do and he makes me "sign with blood" that I will deliver my work in 4 days time. Gulp gulp, he wanted me to come out with a tool to perform sanity testing on the system configurations made by the engineers here. FYI, the system configurations made by the engineers here is in PERL. So I was like, OMG ... my PERL so terrible, then he asked me to parse the PERL configurations instead.

So I began to sweat. Starting with something simple, then I start scribbling at my rough paper to design the flow for the tools that I want. This time, I need to move fast. I only have 4 days to come with a working tools. A prototype that makes sense at least. So I spend the next 2 hours designing the tools. During the implementation time, I get stucked here and there and there. Goodness, I'm damn nervous already.

I have the ideas for tools, I will use PERL to parse the PERL configuration into hashes and make the comparison with excel sheet. Yes I will use PERL to parse the microsfot excel sheet as well. One thing that stop and deter me the most, the syntax of PERL is killing me. Can't get the dereferencing of array and hash properly. I'm so used to C & C++, jezz, having hard time. Luckily I have a sen-seh sitting next to me. In fact, the PERL tool that I'm writing was to parse my sin-seh PERL configuration cause his PERL configuration have a lot of bugs that keep him in constant radar with the management. Har, funny huh, I need to ask my sin-seh that produces a lot of bugs. Hey, don't get me wrong, his technical skills is good just that I felt he didn't test it thoroughly.

Parsing the PERL configuration into hashes is ain't an easy task. I need to understand his configuration, his design and logic before I can completely parse the configuration.

Luckily by the last day, I come out with something that actually works. Thumbs UP .. that's what my manager said. He is pretty impress with my tools with the fact that I was given such a short time to do it (oh course lar, what do you think, you make me sign with blood, hahaha). Of course, it is just a prototype, I have written down few areas that can be improved further. Hmm... I'm going to make this tool a nightmare for the TEST team. Catch me if you can .... No bugs can be catch by TEST team. FYI, being a former tester, I really know how TESTER think. When I was in CDMA team, back then, very seldom my tester can catch bugs from my code. If you really wanted to catch me, you really need to think outside the box of an tester, cause I KNOW HOW YOU THINK !!!!

After coming with the tools last week, it really strained me to the max. I felt so lethargic now. Mentally strained. Plus on, I didn't really have a good weekend, hence it does not help ..

I was supposed to deliver the full working toll this friday, but I decided to laid back for a while. I'm so tired and bored. Darn, I need caffeine.

I got some materials and photos to blog on, but can't find the mood yet. Stay tune for more updates....

Quality: Proton launches 'zero defect' campaign

It was reported in NST,

Proton (Malaysia Car Manufacturer) managing director Syed Zainal Abidin is launching "Zero Defect" campaign. Obviously this MD of Proton knows very little about quality control.

The arguement is:
  1. How can a product line be "Zero Defect"? Although as claimed by ZD concept founder Dr Philip B. Crosby, this method is inexpensive but many observers doubt it where it involved extreme cost in meeting the standard.
  2. Proton should be more realistic by at least meeting Six-Sigma before looking at ZD. Even six-sigma allows 3.4 DPMO (Defective Parts Per Million Opportunities), hence let's be realistic rather than overly ambitious.

Spooky Tales

SF has CISCO training at downtown. She got to wake early and drive all the way to downtown as you know, cannot rely on our beloved Malaysia's transport system. Diu read here on my experiences in taking bus and you will know why.

So I take care of the Ning Ning mommom at night and early morning lor. So happen that Ning Ning sleep soundly today and I woke up around 7am. So I was like, arrghh still early but what to do. I am very alert even while I'm sleeping. The lightest sound can wake me up, the moment I woke up, I cannot fall asleep again. Sighh....

So after cleaning up, I turned my wireless router and online from SF's laptop inside the room cause Ning Ning is still sleeping soundly in her baby cot in our room. Diu, the bloody streamyx, darn slow. So I was trying to access the my router admin page to check if any settings that had caused the lagging. luck, everything looks normal. I thought got someone stealing my bandwidth, but no ar, everything seems normal.

Then I also farking give up, the bloody streamyx. So I shut down the laptop and tried to turn off my router. I was shocked, the desktop that connected to my router was turned on. I was like, huh? SF already went to work, why is that the computer get turned on by itself? Gulp gulp.

I bet SF will get scared when she read my blog later on. Diu what to scare, as long as I didn't harm that "thing" I will be alright. If that "thing" need anything and I can fulfill it, I shall do the "thing" a favor. Diu. Where got the "thing". Or I did intentionally turned on the desktop without my consciousness. Jezz, I'm really getting old. Oh know, I just turned 29, I can't be that old. Oh no, did I have alzheimer's?

According to, alzheimer's are

a progressive form of presenile dementia that is similar to senile dementia except that it usually starts in the 40s or 50s; first symptoms are impaired memory which is followed by impaired thought and speech and finally complete helplessness

Diu, I will eventually become helplessness. Fark.

Petrol: How to save petrol, ie: your money

I found this article from 5xmom, 5xmom, I basically reproduce the article from your blog. If you think I should remove it make my readers go to your page instead, please let me. (Diu, as if well established blogger like you will bother visit my blog.)


This is a Message received from a friend. Now that cost of petrol has gone up, you might want to post this and help people save some money.

I don’t know what you guys are paying for petrol… but here in Durban, we are also paying higher, up to 47.35 per litre. But my line of work is in petroleum for about 31 years now, so here are some tricks to get more of your money’s worth for every litre.

Here at the Marian Hill Pipeline, where I work in Durban, we deliver about 4 million litres in a 24-hour period thru the pipeline.

One day is diesel; the next day is jet fuel, and petrol, LRP and Unleaded. We have 34-storage tanks here with a total capacity of 16,800,000 litres.


Remember that all service stations have their storage tanks buried below ground. The colder the ground, the denser the fuel, when it gets warmer petrol expands, so buying in the afternoon or in the evening…. your litre is not exactly a litre.

In the petroleum business, the specific gravity and the temperature of the petrol, diesel and jet fuel, ethanol and other petroleum products play an important role. A 1degree rise in temperature is a big deal for this business. But the service stations do not have temperature compensation at the pumps.


If you look, you will see that the trigger has three (3) stages: low, middle, and high. In slow mode, you should be pumping on low speed, thereby minimizing the vapours that are created, while you are pumping. All hoses at the pump have a vapour return. If you are pumping on the fast rate, some of the liquid that goes to your tank becomes vapour. Those vapours are being sucked up and back into the underground storage tank so you’re getting less worth for your money.


The reason for this is, the more fuel you have in your tank, the less air occupying its empty space. Petrol evaporates faster than you can imagine. Petroleum storage tanks have an internal floating roof. This roof serves as zero clearance between the petrol and the atmosphere, so it minimizes the evaporation. Unlike service stations, here where I work, every truck that we load is temperature compensated, so that every litre is actually the exact amount.

most likely the petrol/diesel is being stirred up as the fuel is being delivered, and you might pick up some of the dirt that normally settles on the bottom.

Hope, this will help you get the maximum value for your money.


"Diu" and "Niamah"

I find very hilarious when I read others blog with the word "Diu" or "Niamah". Hahaha .. last time when I just came back from Melbourne after staying 2 years there, I picked the habit of saying "What the fuck are you doing here?" , "Where the fuck you wanna go?", "How you going? (should sound and means as 'How are you doing', but dunno why oz like to pronounce it in such a way)". The word "Fxxx" is so common, hence I don't find it offensive.

So when I just got back, I still have that habit inside me, but I find most of the Malaysian felt offended and the word "Fxxx" is a no no thing. Gosh ...

Now when I read

Patrick Teoh

5xmom (chan li lian)

Kenny Sia

Seriously I find it very hilarious. Perhaps, I should start using it the word "Diu" and "Niamah".

My First Father Day - A Very Touching One

I'm so touched with this, although it is SF who did it. But I certainly felt very touched. I've been through few milestones being a father. It is great to see Ning Ning grow healthily.

This is my 1st FATHERS DAY and more to come......

Conclusion: Experiment on Taking Public Transport - BUS

Many of you must be asking where are the other 2 days of my experiment in using public transport - bus. Hmm .. after taking 3 days in a row for last week. I can come out with my conclusion and summary.

- Save money (in petrol, parking and toll. Perhaps even save maintenance cost of the car)
- No need to drive (hence you don't need to curse the irresponsible driver that suddenly cut into your lane. Ya ya, I'm not a good driver cause I curse irresponsible driver.)
- Less worry on traffic jam. You can just sit tight let the traffic problem to the bus driver.
- Can meet more people, improve your network.
- Help you to slim down, cause you need to chase for time.

- Time consuming.
- Inconsistent bus (in terms of availability and timing)
- If rain, then a big problem.
- Expose yourself to pick-pocket.
- Unable to plan your time properly, where you spent most of your time in waiting for the bus or chasing for the bus.
- Reaching home late, spending less time with my family. Especially my baby daughter. Huh, not worthy, this is the time where she changed a lot, don't want to miss those moment.
- Tired, waiting and chasing for bus and seat.
- Expose to the dusty environment at the bus stop.

- I will only resort to taking bus if petrol price become unaffordable. So far, still manageable, just that I have to trim some unnecessary expenses.
- I will only resort to taking bus if we have a reliable transportation system where I can plan my journey from home to workplace and vice versa. Currently I cannot plan my time, I have to wait aimless at the bus station for the bus not knowing whether the buses will come or not. I hate living aimless. I wanted things under my control.

Again I am a strong supporter of public transport. I don't need a car to work if I can take efficient public transport. I really miss the transportation system in Melbourne.

Nice Flower by MIL

Went back to Sungai Siput, SF's hometown. Apparently my MIL plant quite a number of flower at the front yard.

Apparently, I stole one of this back to Puchong.

I wanted to take this one, but MIL only got 1 bouquet

Complaint: Bad Service from Astro

On 9 June 2008, I called Astro at 1300 82 3838. THREE things that I am so dissatisfied with Astro.
  1. Long waiting time
  2. Bad support from customer service officer
  3. Wrong information in the leaflet
Long Waiting Time - I was made to wait for 8 1/2 minutes before I get attended by the customer service officer.
- It took 3 - 5 minutes for the customer service officer to get my problem solved eventhough it can be done in 1 minutes.

Bad Service
- When I asked the customer service what should I do, she insist that I just put in the new gold card that I have received from Astro. Damn it, I have tried.
- I have to ask her 3 times that what I have to do first. I've told her that I'm currently viewing a program at channel 311. So do I need to be in standby mode before pulling the old card out. She insist NO. I kept asking because the method that she asked to do, I have already tried it on my own before calling ASTRO at 1300 82 3838. Damn it, she don't understand English is it.
- Finally at the fourth time of confirmation, she told me that I have to switch to channel 880 and put in the new card for activation. Sighhh..... Astro should really train their staff properly. There are hundred one ways of solving problem. The customer service officer should be more alert in listening to the customer situation before offering solution.

Wrong Information Sent to me
- There are only 4 steps given to me in the leaflet.
- There ain't step for channel 880. Sighh
- When I question the customer service officer, on why no channel 880 in the leaflet. She told me that "Ooo.. that leaflet is wrong". What the heck, if it is wrong, why on earth they still send me the wrong info. So irresponsible act by Astro.

Day 3: Taking bus home from Uptown to Puchong

5:40 pm - NO U82 passing uptown. Grrrr ... U82 went MIA
6:00 pm - Take Metro bus to One Utama. Paid $0.90 cents.
6:10 pm - Reached One Utama
6:25 pm - U43 reached One Utama. Board this bus to Puchong.
7:05 pm - U43 reached IOI Mall. I'm taking another experiment to see if U43 stop right in front of my house or not. To my horror, it did not, I end up at Bukit Puchong Petronas. So I have to call SF out to pick me up.

Day 3: Taking bus to workplace

Today I woke up 15 mins earlier than usual. Hehehe .. woke up at 7am but doze off again till 7:16am. I get myself ready by 7:28am, huh 12 mins .. that's a record. Then have breakfast and leave home by 7:40am.

7:45 am - U60 reached PU.
7:55 am - U60 reached Tesco Puchong.
8:00 am - U43 reached Tesco Puchong. Huh, so close.
8:30 am - U43 reached Sunway Toll. Apparently there is a 3 car accident at Western Digital (the opposite side towards Sunway). One thing I find out very frustrating is Malaysian are busy body/nosy. Most of the cars that pass by the accident area will slow down and glance at the scene. OMG, if you are not going to help, then don't bother to even glance at it. Keep moving. Don't slow down. You are causing problem to other motorists.
8:58 am - U43 reached Uptown.
9:03 am - Reached office.

Day 2: Taking bus from workplace to home

A good day

Today I decided to use another route to catch U43. I knocked off around 5:30pm and waited for U88 at Uptown towards One Utama.

5:40 pm - U82 reached Uptown, this one also goto One Utama but pass by Taman Tun first, which take longer route to One Utama. U88 go straight to One Utama.
5:55 pm - Another U82, so decided to to take this since no sign of U88.
6:15 pm - U82 reached One Utama.
6:20 pm - U43 reached One Utama. Yeah, managed to grab a seat.
6:40 pm - U43 reached Kelana Jaya LRT station. Traffic is very bad today.
7:15 pm - U43 reached IOI mall. Need to catch U69/U60.
7:20 pm - U60 reached IOI mall. Boarding this bus. Opps to my horror it didn't use the DHL. Artwright, Koi Tropika, Puchong Hartamas route. It went to the main LDP road. But there is a bless in disguise, I found out that U60 stop right in front of my housing area. Even nearer to my house compare to taking U69.
7:30 pm - U60 reached PU.
7:33 pm - Reached home in time for dinner. SF just finished cooking 3 meals with 1 soup. Yummy.

Success story:
- U82
- U60

Thursday, June 12, 2008

Day 2: Taking Bus to Workplace

Huh, hopefully Day 2 bring me more lucks.

8:00 am - Wait for bus U69/U60
8:05 am - T509 reached. But not going to take this bus else gonna pay extra RM1.
8:10 am - U69 reached PU. Taking this bus to Tesco Puchong.
8:25 am - U69 reached Tesco Puchong.
8:40 am - U43 reached Tesco. Taking this bus to Uptown. Quite packed but manged to get a seat. Traffic is quite bad. Lots of cars today.
9:25 am - U43 reached Uptown.
9:30 am - Reached office.

Going to work is pretty ok, the nightmare is going back home. Sighh .. Hopefully today will be ok. Finger crossed.

If I drive - normally take 30 - 45 minutes.

If I take bus - 60 to 70 minutes.

So additional 30 minutes. Quite good actually considering it is public transport.

Day 1: Taking Bus Home From Workplace - Total DISASTER

It is a total DISASTER going back home by RapidKL bus. OMG !!!!

The journey as below:

5:30 pm - Leaving office
5:45 pm - Taking U89 bus from York (the air-conditioner company) Damansara Utama Jalan 21/1 to Kelana Jaya LRT station.
5:55 pm - U89 reached Kelana Jaya LRT Station

The nightmare began, wait and wait and wait and wait and wait and wait .. hungry, hungrier and hungriest .....

7:05 pm - U43 finally come after I have waited for a total of 70 minutes or 1 HOUR and 10 MINUTES
7:25 pm - U43 reached Sunway Toll towards Puchong
7:40 pm - U43 reached IOI Mall, Puchong
7:45 pm - U69 arrived, need to board this bus to go home
8:00 pm - U69 reached my home.

Notes: Weird though, I go to work by U69/U60 & U43 (2 buses only). But when I wanted to go home, I need to take U89, U43 & U69/U60 (3 buses). I'm wondering how RapidKL design their route. Sighhh .. Seriously they need to improve on this.

Another thing that frustates me the most, in the 70 minutes waiting, there is only 1 and ONLY ONE U89 reached Kelana Jaya. That simply means, if I have missed the 5:45pm U89 bus at Uptown, I will never be able to catch the 7:05pm U43 to go back to Puchong. OMG. I checked with my friend that live in the same area, he tooked the 6:50pm U89 reached Kelana Jaya at 7:30pm. Then luckily he managed to catch the 8:00pm U43 to go home. Huh ... breathtaking.

It was packed like hell. I'm like in a Sardine Can only. I have to stand on the footsteps of the bus. So dangerous. Appreciate if RapidKL and the authority can look into this. It is so different from the morning session where it is so comfortable.
So a total of 2 1/2 HOURS to go home which normally took me 1 HOUR to reach home.

1 - Increase the frequency of U89 & U43
2 - Shorten the duration between buses from 1 hour to 15/30 minutes during the peak hours from 5:30pm to 8:00pm. The wait time can be gradually increased after 8pm.

For the first day experience on public transport, I noticed few disadvantages:

1 - Lost plenty of precious time in waiting for bus.
2 - Lost precious time (1 1/2 hours) with family considering that I'm late for home for 1 1/2 hours. Decrease in communication with families member.
3 - Late having meal, increase the risk of gastric
4 - Very tired.
5 - Expose myself to pick-pocket. The bus is sardine packed.

My confidence level drops to 65% after the first day experience.

Day 1: Taking Bus to workplace

Due to the fact, our petrol price is so expensive nowadays, I decided to try to take public transport to work. In reality, most of us don't really need a car to work. All we need is just to get to work and go back home. Hence if the public transport can do the magic, why not.

The issue is, I kept hearing from my families, friends and colleagues that our public transport is not reliable. A waste of time. But I don't agree with them, we need to try first if it works. No point say NO without trying. As Napoleon Bonaparte said "The victor is the one who persevere the most".

I'm going to do a 5 days experiment. Below are my journal for Day #1.

8:15 AM - A bus (U69) pass by my house to transfer me to Tesco Puchong.
8:30 AM - U69 reached Tesco Puchong.
8:50 AM - U43 bus reached Tesco Puchong. I need to take this bus to Damansara Uptown.
9:20 AM - I reached at uptown, near the Maybank and Ambank.

Huh breathtaking, in fact the timing was quite good actually considering that I'm using public transport where it need to stop in between.

Now I am worry about the journey back home because yesterday when I drove home at around 5:30PM, I didn't see any U43 bus along the way. Hence now I'm wondering what time will I reach home then?

Normally I left my home by car around 8:50AM and I reached office around 9:35 AM. All the way when I was in the bus, I could see other cars also stucked in the traffic jam. So it make no differences if I drive or taking bus. But still, this is only Day #1. Stay tuned for more updates for Day X.

Notes: I make some big mistake this morning, I left my office key at home. Gosh .... !@#$%^&. My wife has been telling me to double check my stuff before heading to bus station. But I'm confidently told her that, yes I did. In fact I do, the first thing I do when I got home yesterday is put everything in one place and put it in the backpack. To my horror, I left my key. Jezz. Hence few things to prepare:
  1. Office Key, Tag
  2. Umbrella
  3. Story book (so can do some reading)
  4. Drinking Water
  5. Tissue
  6. Loose change (if u don't use touch n go)
  7. Additional T-shirt (just in case you sweat too much or heavy rain)
  8. Fan (in case too hot)
You must be wondering why I took so much hassle on taking bus? Let me do some simple calculation (what Maths again !!! ya I like Maths a lot. Everything in this world can be calculated !!!):

On average a car consume 8 liters of petrol per 100 km. That's $0.216 cents per km (for RM 2.70 per liter of petrol).
Distance from my house to work: 25 km for 1 way

Cost of Petrol:
2 (ways) x 25 (km) x 5 (days a week) x 52 (weeks in a year) x $0.216 / 12 (months) = RM 234

Cost of Toll:
2 (ways) x RM 1.60 (for LDP) x 5 x 52 (weeks in a year) / 12 (months) = RM 69.33

Cost of Parking:
RM 126.00

Total Cost: RM 234 + RM 69.33 + RM 126 = RM 429.33 per month

If taking bus:
$2 (per day) x 5 (days in a week) x 52 (weeks in a year) / 12 (months) = RM 43.33

RM 429.33 - RM 43.33 = RM 386 per month

Hopefully the public transport is reliable so that I can use the money save to offset the Electricity that has went up 11% recently and also to offset the inflation nowadays.

Is This An Act of Retaliation?

Someone argue this is an act of retaliation from the government for losing 5 states + 2/3 majority in the parliament in this General Election 2008. Is that so?

I don't view it in such a way. Reviewing the price of petrol is inevitable, but as I have argued before, the price hike must be reasonable and bearable by the rakyat. At the point where the rakyat is fighting against inflation, the rakyat got a double straight punch to the face. I would say a TKO to the rakyat. Rakyat is the big loser.

Why is it double straight punch to the face? Electricity and PETROL !!!!!
  1. New Electricity Tariff
  2. New Petrol Price
I sincerely hope this is not an action of retaliation against the rakyat. Because if it is, then UMNO folks and those that votes for BN also suffer since they also use petrol. Hence I do not think this is an act of retaliation. More towards improper planning and execution of ideas without proper reasoning and thinking. I really hope government will do something to relieve the burden on the rakyat.

Cost of Living

Let me calculate the cost of living after this DISASTER.
  1. New Electricity Tariff
  2. New Petrol Price
In average:
  • Travelling to work 25 km for one way = 2 (ways) x 25 x 5 (days in a week) = 250 km.
    • On a car that consumes 8 liters per 100km, that translates 20 litres.
    • Before increase = 20 x 1.92 = RM 38.40
    • After increase = 20 x 2.70 = RM54.20
    • Extra RM 15.80 per week, 1 year = 52 (weeks) x RM 15.80 = RM 821.60 extra needed just to go to work.
    • Take additional 100km for weekend grocery sourcing/sending kids to tuition/family gathering/etc.
    • Hence Average per week = 350km, equivalent to 28 liters per week.
    • Before increase = 28 x 1.92 = RM 53.76
    • After increase = 28 x 2.70 = RM 75.60
    • 1 month = (on average 4 x 21.84 = RM 87.36)
    • FINAL TOTAL = 52 x RM 21.84 = RM 1135.68 EXTRA is needed. Minus the RM 625 (rebates (hmm when will get it arr? Will it reach us?), RM 510.68 is needed. RM 42.56 per week.)
    • Hints: This is an average calculation, for myself, I pumped an average of RM 70.00 per week. After 40.625% increase, I need to pumped an average of RM 98.44 per week for an average 450 km in distance.
    • Hints: Government is expecting us
      1. Don't go shopping at shopping mall.
      2. Don't buy new clothes.
      3. Don't buy anything.
      4. Eat lesser.
      5. Don't get anything from the retailer. Save money. Plant your own vegies, rear your own chicken.
      6. Don't visit any relatives.
      7. Don't send your kids to tuition class.
      8. Don't eat at any hawker stalls or restaurant. Cook yourself.
      9. Better still, don't drive (But no proper transport system, how leh?)
  • Inflation on food/non-food items
    • Obviously almost all food/non-food items will increase after this DISASTER.
    • The hawkers/restaurant won't bother on government pleas on not to increase price. Think of this, those folks need to make a living also. I really hope the increase will not be a huge one like petrol but rather manageable.
    • Addtional RM 100 for food items.
    • Additional RM 50 on non-food items.
  • Electricity
Generally 1 family with 1 car =
Petrol = RM 87.36
Food = RM 100
Non Food = RM 50
Electricity = RM 5

TOTAL = Minimum RM 242.36 extra is needed.

1 Family with 2 cars = RM 329.72
1 Family with 3 cars = RM 417.08

and so on ...

Notes: The above calculation is on the modest expectation on a family expenditure.

Abolish the RM6 per kilo ceiling price

It was reported in the The Star, that the ceiling price RM6 for the chicken will be removed soon. Fuyoh, I wonder what will be the price once the ceiling price is removed.

Let me list of food that will be impacted (Current Price shown as in PJ):
  1. KFC - snack plate (RM 9.25 to RM ???)
  2. KFC - zinger maxx (RM 8.35 to RM ???)
  3. Chicken Rice (RM 4.50 to RM ???)
  4. Mixed Rice (RM 4 - RM6 to RM ???)
  5. Chicken Bun (RM 1.40 to RM ???)
  6. Curry Mee (RM4 to RM ???)
  7. Chicken Chop (RM7 to RM ???)

A tribute to DOG

In the recent earthquake in Sichuan, 2 dogs that are so loyal to her owner, stay close to her owner for 196 hours, equivalent to 8 1/6 days. During the period, the dogs kept barking, hoping that rescuers will noticed them and help them to rescuer their owner. Finally, the dogs owner, a woman in her 50s was saved.

Let's give these 2 dogs a big hand.

In this disaster, dogs have been a very good friend to mankind. They have helped the rescuers to find 35 peoples buried under debris. These 35 peoples was saved.

Without the help of these most loyal friend to mankind, these 35 peoples won't stand a chance.

Sichuan Earthquake: Touching Stories #3

A soldier was reporting for duty in Sichuan, his hometown, where his family still staying when the earthquake struck.

He received order to move from Point A to Point B. His house is in between Point A and Point B and so happened the route that they used to reach Point B did by pass his house. Hence he did dropped by at his house (no longer house, the whole building had collapsed). He found his mother still alive trapped underneath the debris, and his mom said "Mom, is ok, go go save other people first. I'll wait for you here."

Then he quickly made his move to Point B. Upon finishing his duty at Point B, he quickly rush back to his house to save his mother. At this point, the whole world seems to fall on him. His mother has died.

He said this "Mama, wo hen du bui ji nie" (Mom, I'm so sorry).

Scam: Lucrative vacation offer by FilterFxxxx

Folks, if you ever received a call from tele-marketer telling you that you have been choosen to receive a lucrative vacation package away to Langkawi/Tioman/Redang or whatsoever, DO NOT fall into their trap.

One of my friend, received the call and went to the office. All my friend wanted is the voucher for the vacation and he has no intention to buy any product from this water filter company.

Initially the treatment was very good, my friend was invited to have a seat. Everything went very smooth up to the point when he was asked to fill in the form for recording purpose.

When he filled the form given to him, he stated that he not interested in water filter thing nor wanted to be agent for them. After the so call manager fella saw the form, he straight away asked my friend, what is the purpose he come to the office for FilterFxxxx? Then my friend said, your tele-marketer called me and I'm interested with the voucher offer. Then all a sudden, that fella changed, he asked my friend to leave. And NO voucher given. Cheh ....

To all, please beware of this scam. Don't fall into the trap. Don't just because of a voucher that might worth only RM 300 and end up losing RM 3000 to all these scumbag.
