Time has just upped the ante in Malaysia's broadband's competition by offering super fast fibre optic broadband at affordable prices. So for only RM199, you can get to enjoy 1Gbps of Internet speed which is 10X faster than what Unifi is offering. Such competitive pricing is god for the consumers and it proves that a company can still earn profile while offering high quality products and services without relaying the cost to the customers.
Cheapest 100Mbps fibre broadband in Malaysia
In line with their more affordable pricing strategy, Time is also offering the cheapest 100Mbps Internet broadband plan in Malaysia which costs only RM99 per month. This is definitely a boon for those who are looking to spend less on Internet subscription fee. With the newly revamped broadband plans, Time is offering 500Mbps of fibre broadband for only Rm139 per month and their fastest is the aforementioned 1Gbps at RM199 monthly.
Just by paying RM139, you can already enjoy 500Mbps of ultra-fast Internet
All the three packages come with 24 months contract which I honestly feel is truly fair, given how affordable the plans are in the first place. On top of that, you will even get RM100 rebate if you sign up online. Should you wish to opt for the shorter 12-month contract instead, you will need to fork out a one-time charge of RM300 and you will not get to enjoy the RM100 rebate as well. Hence it makes perfect sense to choose the 2 years contract tenure.
When it comes to speed, Time fibre broadband are symmetrical for both its 100Mbps and 500Mbps plans which means both download and upload speed will be the same. However, for the 1Gbps plan your upload speed will be halved at 500Mbps instead which is still unbelievably fast! Of course the quota for all the Time's fibre Broadband plans (100Mbps, 500Mbps and 1Gbps) is UNLIMITED! Yes, unlimited quota for all the broadband plans rolled out by Time regardless of you package and price you are paying. So no discrimination or pressure to sign up more expensive packages. *hint hint*
Do you still need to call?
If you need to make any phone calls, by default you will be charged at 10 cents per minute on a pay per use basis. By adding RM2.50 per month, you can enjoy Voice Home Lite which comes with 30 minutes of free calls while Voice Home Max comes with 300 minutes. All the add-ons come with 1 free complementary DECT phone and of course a 24-month contract as well. Then again I doubt most of us will actually be making a lot of phone calls these days.
It's TIME to enjoy your Internet.
Existing customers of Time can rejoice as they will automatically be upgraded to the new broadband plans for free (of course). Existing 100Mbps customers will be upgraded to 500Mbps, while the existing 300Mbps and 500Mbps customers will have their respective broadband plans upgraded to the fastest 1Gbps fibre broadband plan for free. As it stands for now, Time is offering the cheapest and faster fibre Internet Broadband plans in Malaysia. How I wish that I can actually enjoy their Internet plan as well. Too bad, coverage is kinda limited right now for a lot of people outside of KL. I hope Time will expedite their coverage for other Malaysians to enjoy "cheap" Internet connectivity.
Should you want to move forward fast and far, to travel light and easily...then you have to be the first one to forgive. We really need to learn to unpack all our baggage of bitterness, envy, rage, fear and resentment before all these negative emotions drag us down. In fact we should never reject the opportunity to forgive as it is a fortitude which belongs only to those who are strong. Having said so, weaklings usually will banish any sight of forgiveness as their cowardice contaminates their nature.
Have you ever tried driving your car without letting go of your hand brake? I am sure you will agree that you are actually dragging the car instead of driving it right? That's exactly what a life of unforgiveness feels like. It will cause you to slow down, losing your momentum and eventually it will drag you down. By not forgiving, you are actually cultivating a deep-seated grudge which is sipping away your peace of mind like a deadly cancer. In other words, when you don't forgive you are actually wielding a double-edged sword which is also hurting you at the same time. Needless to say, it is utterly pathetic to harbour a hateful grudge for many years at your very own expense.
Revenge will eventually manifest itself when you cannot forgive. It looks so sweet on the outside, but we all know that vengeance is cunningly deceptive in nature and its aftertaste is definitely bitter. Remember that the quest to seek revenge will always cost you more than to bear it. You can never win by trying to even the score and the vicious cycle will continue with more and more innocent people at risk of being at the receiving ends of this otherwise preventable catastrophe.
There is no revenge so complete as forgiveness.
Forgiveness is never easy but it will be one's highest achievement. When forgiveness is absent, our life will be dictated by endless cycles of retaliation and animosity which pathetically exhaust us of our energy and time. Think about it: forgiveness is actually the key to our personal peace as it releases us from the shackles of hatred which imprisons us. In fact, if we want to live and long and fruitful life, we need to start forgiving those who don't deserve our grace. Peter Von Winter said it best, "It is manlike to punish, but Godlike to forgive."
Richard Nixon mentioned, "Those who hate you don't win UNLESS you hate them, and then you destroy yourself." It is time for us release the parking brake which is inhibiting our life; It is time to release the past and claim our future. Of course forgiveness can never ever change the past, but it does brightens our future. Do not burn bridges as you will be shocked to know how many times you actually have to cross over that same river. It is time to forgive and live your life. :)
The Devil sends his wickedest little devil-procrastination to earth to unleash hell by misleading people not work hard enough to accomplish what they need to complete. It appears that procrastination is having some difficulty dissuading people from misplacing their priorities. Hence addiction is sent to reinforce the mission to corrupt us. It is not just any addiction we are talking about; more specifically it is mobile game addiction!
It is addiction of course...
With more and more people being able to afford at least one smartphone, it makes complete wicked sense to infiltrate us through mobile phones no? Billions of people worldwide are being connected to each other via apps worldwide which include the ever prevalent mobile gaming apps. So far it seems that their evil plan is working like charm and more and more people are reportedly getting hooked to the virtual world, where they can crush candies and gang up with their virtual friends to kill their enemies.
Worse comes to worst, to those people who are addicted to mobile gaming, this addiction is not something bad for them compared to the more debilitating drug addiction. In fact, mobile game addicts believe that gaming is a way for them to relax and unwind, without hurting anyone around them like smoking! To them, mobile gaming is totally acceptable and it will never be able to dictate their lives just like how drugs can manipulate the addicts. Then again I beg to differ. Here are 5 warning signs which show that you are seriously addicted to mobile gaming:
1-Life Dictated By Mobile Games:
If you are constantly checking your game, collecting rewards and upgrading buildings almost every single hour, most probably your life has been dictated by the very game(s) you are playing. In fact the game itself has dominated most of your waking hours.
If you derive a lot of pleasure from mobile gaming, so much so that you feel it is giving you that euphoric sensation and easing all your pain, frustration and stress...most probably it is addiction.
Do you feel irritated, anxious, restless or disconnected when your mobile game playing session is reduced or stopped? It is obvious that you are suffering from the withdrawal effects.
4-Conflicts With Others & Yourself:
Spending too much time on mobile gaming will result in conflicts with those around you especially your family members. Altercations might occur as those who care for you cannot accept your misplaced priorities. Moreover you might even be "quarreling" with yourself. It's like you have developed bipolar disorder: one part of you know that this addiction is getting worse while the other half insists that it is perfectly fine to relax. BAM!
Sometimes when you have finally got rid of your addiction-by uninstalling the game, you will still end up reinstalling the game as you cannot control your craving to be gratified by your mobile gaming. Such relapse shows how serious the addiction has become.
It is time to stop...
So are you are a mobile game addict? If you check one of these boxes, you can already consider yourself as an addict to the virtual playground which has shackled both your hands, manipulating you in a way that you do not even know. It is time for us to snap out of this trap set by the mobile gaming industry before it is too late. In fact we can use digital wellness device such as Audra to help control our addiction. It is time to complete "uninstall" the games!
P.S.: Yours truly me is guilty of checking all the boxes above and that makes me a mobile game addict! :(
While you’re probably aware of the fact that there are lots of video formats out there – do you know which are the most popular? More importantly are you familiar enough with them that you know what they’re good for and why they’re used so frequently?
Developing a better understanding of video formats will let you choose the right format if you ever want to encode a video or transcode one to a different format. With that in mind there are four video formats right now that are very popular, and you should definitely know about:
MP4 with H.264
Over the years MP4 with H.264 has become the most popular and widely-supported format. Its initial rise was mostly because of how versatile it was and its ability to compress audio and video separately.
Simply put MP4 with H.264 provided smaller file sizes, was more compatible with mobile devices, and HTML5 supported it. It is still the recommended format of choice for most online platforms, such as indicated in YouTube’srecommended upload settings.
MKV with H.265
Largely seen as the would-be successor to MP4 with H.264, MKV with H.265 has strengths on several fronts. For starters the MKV container itself is open-source and can support practically any feature that is required – whereas the H.265 codec is the successor to H.264 and provides better compression.
For now the format is not as widely-supported as its predecessor, but support for it is growing consistently. In time it could very well supplant MP4 completely.
As you may have guessed MPEG-2 is an old format that is several generations behind MP4. However it remains popular to this very day due to the fact that it is the format that is used in DVDs.
Although newer DVD players have started to support other formats (such as MP4 with H.264) the majority still only cater to MPEG-2. In short if you want to burn a video to a DVD, it needs to be in this format.
Recently the AV1codec was released and it has been making waves since then. It offers better compression rates than H.265, is designed to be future-proof, and is open-source and loyalty-free.
While still in its early days, AV1 appears to be a legitimate challenger to H.265 and will likely compete against it for dominance. It is expected to gain widespread adoption over the next 2 years.
As you can see each of these formats is popular for a different reason – or will be in the not too distant future. In fact you may even see how you could use some of this to your advantage, for example learning how to convert a DVD to MP4 will help you to improve its compression.
Converting made easy
Keep in mind that newer formats are constantly emerging with various new features and better types of compression. It may very well be the case that in a few years a completely different format will be more popular than any of the ones listed above.
I have always believed that no amount of make up, genetic lotteries or glamorous scanty clothes can be compared to the innate ability to provide the best for your husband and children. That is exactly what I love so much about my wife. She always puts us before herself which might not be a good thing all the time but it goes to show how devoted and loving she is as a wife and mother. Knowing that eating out is not entirely healthy, my wife has always tried to cook for us even when she during her working days!
Wifey busy preparing dinner.
Sizzling salmon! :D
So today, even though it is a public holiday...my wife had insisted that she would cook for all of us for lunch and dinner. Yupe! No disrespect to anyone, but I know some mothers who do not really care about what their children would eat as long as the little ones have something to shovel down their throats to stay "alive". These mothers have time to go for facial, apply make up and do manicure while wasting hours scrolling Facebook or Instagram, to look at other people's lives; BUT they don't have time to cook nutritious food for their kids! Personally such women...disgust me...but who am I to judge right? LOL :D
Jasmine helping mommy to prepare dinner.
Mother and daughter do. :)
That's why I am really, really lucky to have my wife for she loves us more than herself. Of course in turn my children and I will love her EVEN MORE for all the sacrifices she has done for us. Trust me mothers: children know what kind of mothers are self-centered and not worthy to be called one. They know! Hence my children are always thinking about their mothers all the time. To them, their mother is the world and one who will always prioritize them!
Dinner is ready...almost.
Wifey dished out wholesome dinner for us!
Especially for Jordan and Jasmine with bigger portion of salmon. :)
Extra greenies for us.
My photo didn't do justice to this wonderful chilly made by my wife.
So this evening, my wife got out of her way to prepare a feast for us. She started as early as 4:30p.m. to get busy in the kitchen while my children and I are still napping. :( Altogether she prepared scrumptious dinner for six of us in the family. She have fried salmon, sausages, chicken chop, corn, potatoes, sweet potatoes, sweet tomatoes and even mushroom soup! She even prepared her very own chilly for us to savour. All this trouble just for us to have an unforgettable dinner.
Jasmine said she wants be as smart as mommy as well as being a good cook! :)
Jordan reiterated that he wanted to marry a woman like his mother.
By the time she was almost done...it was around 6:30p.m. Imagine sweating it out 2 hours non-stop in the kitchen, dishing out delicious food just for us. Still when our dinner was served, my wife was all smile. That is the kind of devotion and love that we love so much about her. Let's talk about the food shall we? The stir-fried Norwegian salmon was really the highlight for our dinner. It was perfectly cook and creamy. Dayum! I can't have enough of it.
My wife cooked this just for my father as he doesn't eat salmon, sausages or pork.
Next up was the succulent pork chop that my wife prepared specially for me. Knowing that yours truly me really loves to sink my teeth into these juicy, tender red meat, my wife took the extra trouble preparing it for me. As the kids love cheesy sausages, she cooked a few for them as well. Besides we also got to taste the perfectly steamed potatoes and corn which really complemented our meaty main course. She even spent time grinding her own homemade chilly which was not-to-spicy for all of us to savour. On top of that, she also prepared mushroom soup for all six of us. A lot of work indeed! Thank you for the dinner wifey! Muack
I would rate everything my wife cooks 20 out of 10 stars! 2 thumbs up!
Honestly I always told my beloved wife that she owed me in my previous life, hence this life I get to marry such a loving, doting wife and mother who really takes good care of the whole family. In actual fact...I am the one who owes her every single thing that I have right now; she is willing to marry me; she is willing to have babies with me; she is willing to cook for us. On top of that my wife is really smart (scored straight As in STPM) and beautiful which are bonuses for me. LOL :D So I am really, really lucky to have her as my wife because she is the world to me.
Nothing beats a meal made with love. :)
P.S.: Men: NEVER ever pick a woman as your wife solely based on her look or the way she dresses. Always choose a soul mate who will make you her world. This is the advice that I am giving my son.
To be completely honest, I don't really fancy Apple iPhones as they are considered an unnecessary luxury that we should not be splurging our money on. Then again, I must admit that I am utterly flabbergasted with the latest release of Apple Watch-the Series 4. After it was unveiled, I must say that it is the best smartwatch I have seen so far in 2018. No other smart timepieces can even be mentioned in the same breath as the one crafted by Apple.
It was obvious that Apple is planning to be ahead of the rest with their new Watch Series 4. The display of the smartwatch is 30% bigger than its predecessor and the bezel has been trimmed down significantly as well to complement the stunning display. Apart from the beautiful screen, the speaker has been significantly improved and it is now 50% louder for optimized experience of using Siri, Walkie-Talkie feature and of course calls. Apple has also repositioned the microphone so that echoes can be reduced to to deliver crispy and vivid sound.
Life better life!
All these while I thought that smartwatches are merely for notification and well...tracking your fitness though not many has truly fulfilled this claim realistically. Here is where Watch Series 4 from Apple is different from the rest. It actually helps you to live a better life and it even has the capability to save your precious life. The vastly improved health tracking mechanism built in it makes saving your life a possibility now. Read on to find out!
Now comes with newly-added electrodes.
Besides housing optical sensor at the back of the smartwatch, electrodes have also been integrated into the sapphire glass underneath the Digital Crown. Thanks to these added new sensors, Watch Series 4 can now read ECG (ElectroCardioGram) right on your wrist! You just need to launch the app and touch the crown with your finger and the smartwatch will do the rest. Voila! It only takes 30 seconds for the ECG to be read.
Apple Watch Series 4 can read your ECG with 98% accuracy
Here's the astonishing news: Watch Series 4 is the first smartwatch to be approved by FDA for its ECG reader. FDA has released its study using the watch it was 98% at detecting atrial fibrillation (AF). Do you know that atrial fibrillation can lead to stroke? Hence this feature alone will be valid reason for us to buy this life-saving timekeeper! On a side note, these recordings can be saved in the Health App and shared with your doctors.
It knows when you have fallen.
Here is another nifty feature that made this watch such a standout among its peers-Fall Detection. The watch can detect whether you have fallen or not. Once it has been detected a fall, it will ask you whether you want to contact any emergency services or not. If it does not sense any movement from you (assuming you are unconscious or suffering from heart attack etc.), it will automatically contact the emergency numbers available to ask for immediate help. Damn! This is truly a brilliant feature from Apple for its Watch Series 4. This will be ideal for our old folks or those with medical history. Hats 4 for the team behind this smartwatch!
Apple Watch Series 4 is the best smartwatch money can.
Under the hood, Watch Series 4 is powered by a new S4 64-bit dual-core processor that is 2X faster than its older sibling. In spite of the bigger screen and raw processing power, the watch maintains its 18-hour battery life just like its predecessor. When you are outdoor exercising with the GPS turned on, the watch can last up to 6 hours which is sufficient enough before you need another charge.
Introducing Apple Watch Series 4 — Apple - YouTube
All in all, I would say that Apple Watch Series 4 is not a luxury, relatively speaking of course. In fact I think it is a good investment especially for those who can afford to wear one on their wrist. Available in two different models-GPS only and GPS+Cellular-Watch Series 4 comes in 3 different colours of gold, silver and space grey. The price tag for GPS only watch is US$399 (RM1650) while the Cellular version will cost you US$499 (RM2,000). Though some might argue its price point, I highly recommend Apple Watch Series 4 as your life-saving smartwatch!

It has not been a good month for me to say the least. First and foremost, I was down with a terrible bout of coughing with phlegm which threatens to suffocate me from time to time. In four weeks' time I have been to 3 different doctors; two western and one traditional Chinese medicine (TCM). The first week when I was "attacked", I opted to treat myself by drinking plenty of water but my condition actually deteriorates further. Big mistake. Then I consulted a doctor who used less than 1 minute to diagnose me. Still it was useless!
I wish I could shoot my cough and phlegm away!
Then the second week, I visited TCM who used more around 5 minutes to diagnose me. Besides using stethoscope, she also checked my pulse to get a more accurate reading of my condition. After that she prescribed herbs to be taken by me for 4 days. 4 days had gone, and I was no where near to recovery. Yesterday marked one of the worst days of my illness as I was again attacked by a series of suffocating coughing while I was driving. It was so bad that I had divert to the nearest clinic for treatment.
Tried several other herbs on my way...
I told the doctor about my condition and she immediately diagnosed my condition. Using the stethoscope, she realized that phlegm is in my lungs which caused my breathing to be difficult. Coupled with inflammation to my throat, my whole condition is actually kinda bad. The doctor quickly asked the nurse to bring me to another room in inhale something which will broaden my airway (as seen in picture number 1). This is the first time I was hooked to such a thing in my life. Damn!
In the end, I had to rely on western medication again!
After that I actually felt better (of course...otherwise...). I met with the doctor again and she explained to me what was happening to me. She then meticulously explained to me every single drug that she prescribed for me. She explained that I would be getting steroid! What? STEROID? Apparently it is needed to fasten the recovery of my inflamed throat. She also mentioned that I would be getting a stronger dose of antibiotic since the first one prescribed by the first doctor didn't work. Right now I am feeling way better. Phew! Hopefully I will truly recover soon.
Yeah~both me and my laptop are sick!
As for my lack of updates for my blog...besides struggling with my terrible cough, I am currently trying to adapt to the new size of my laptop display. I think I accidentally cracked the top left of my laptop display, causing that particular part to be totally useless right now. RM400 is needed to repair the damaged screen, but then again it will mean that I will not get to use my laptop for work or blogging for a few days. SO? Well I guess I have to get used to it then. Any company want to sponsor a laptop for me? Bahahaha :D
That's how the display of my laptop is right now...I hope "it" won't spread.
Lovely is definitely one of the most haunting songs that I have ever listened to. You know it is obviously about something gloomy and bleak but it still sounds unbelievably well..."lovely". This unexplainable sensation of wanting to be imprisoned by this song is down to the spellbinding voice of Billie Eilish-the latest singing prodigy who is only 16 years old. Dayum! Together with the equally mesmerizing voice of Khalid, Lovely turns out to be one unholy beautiful song that deserves our attention.
When your voices blend together.
Though some might point out that the song has become a hit after being featured as a soundtrack for the second season of 13 Reasons Why. Then again such limelight can only bring you that far; Their voices and the arrangement of music really hit all the right chords, delivering whimsical but yet melancholy sensation which will linger in your head for some time before dissipating into thin air. Isn't it lovely?
Eilish-the 16 years old singing sensation!
According to Eilish herself, Lovely is a slow piano-led ballad about searching for something better. She also claimed that the title of the song was meant to be sarcastic which is true. Any idea what is the song about? All in all, I honestly believe that Lovely is about one's struggle with depression and wanting to find a way out. Though they talk about wanting to fight the very demon which is terrorizing them, at the same time, ironically they feel happy being alone and miserable. It sounds like it is ok for us to be "mental" as it is part of us. Chilling! Now do listen to the song and let me know what you think about it.

Thought I found a way
Thought I found a way out (found)
But you never go away (never go away)
So I guess I gotta stay now
Oh, I hope some day I'll make it out of here
Even if it takes all night or a hundred years
Need a place to hide, but I can't find one near
Wanna feel alive, outside I can't fight my fear
Isn't it lovely, all alone
Heart made of glass, my mind of stone
Tear me to pieces, skin to bone
Hello, welcome home
Walking out of time
Looking for a better place (looking for a better place)
Something's on my mind
Always in my head space
But I know someday I'll make it out of here
Even if it takes all night or a hundred years
Need a place to hide, but I can't find one near
Wanna feel alive outside I can't fight my fear
Isn't it lovely, all alone
Heart made of glass, my mind of stone
Tear me to pieces, skin to bone
Hello, welcome home
Hello, welcome home
Sooo...how do you feel after listening to the song? Try closing your eyes now...you can still hear their voices reverberating in your head right? It feels like the song has weaved into your heart and mind, as if you somehow can feel the misery that the song is trying to relay, no? Well...I think I can connect the song like we are at currently at the same wavelength. Haunting! If you think Billie Eilish's voice is good, do listen to her other songs like Ocean Eyes and Bellyache. I am sure you will find them lovely. Remember she is only 16! :)
