Happy New 2009

Dear Wonderful People,

I would like to take this chance to share a personal story of mine. A friend of mine just cheated recently by a conman. Though its only a phone with little over 2k, the lesson was invaluable.

She was assistant of manager of a company. She is having a Pda kind of phone with all contact & appointment stored inside. She is having a appoinment with prospect 'client' (even doctors get cheated ok)

The guy, full suit, smart looking & suave - met her at a hotel lobby. When the discussion is almost over, he claim that his hp is dry on battery, and he ask for my friend hp. Dont worry - he did not take the phone & pretend making calls & just run off like that. He sms a lady - telling my friend he will sms his wife, so she could call back to the number & talk to her 'husband' (without wasting pple credit)

Moment later the phone rang, the voice said, can I speak to my husband and so therefore she pass the phone to him - naturally. He excuse himself and talk and walk and talk and walk into disapearance.....

Needless to say, my friend was left with the drinks bill & of course a brand new hp. Nothing could be done at the time.

With this story - we need to constantly on guard & caution with our surrounding. Its sadly that nowadays no one can be trusted at all (you all can trust me with ur hp). Couple with such times of next year, conman & crime will soar. Business everywhere is uncertain, change & transformation would be vital for survival.

A good friend of mine pointed out, people are too confort in doing what they are doing daily, that sometimes, a cycle of economy downturn is NOT always a bad thing. True, people get retrenched and there is no food on the table. But on the positive side, whoever can survive these time of the year, shows a lot about the character of someone. Him or her will emerge victorious & standing tall. It brings some of the inner quality out & change whatever you are doing - to a whole new level !

Did I suprise you? I hope not. I guess I would take a minute of your time to share a message from Zig Ziglar. Do not become a Wandering Generality, be a Meaningful Specific.

May the new year flood your home with warmth & happiness.
May the new year bring a landslide of wealth, love, strength & wisdom into your heart.

Merry Christmas my friend & Happy New Year to all of you. Have a safe, happy healthy & a good game of year 2009.

Warmest Regards,

Customer Service

Today we want to discuss about customer service nightmare

Case 1

A famous company in PJ, the receptionist failed to know each & everyone extension nor being helpful to the maximum. Those are the people who are paid to warm up the chair from 9 to 6. Those are people who leach company and country resources.

Their good reply was:

the company is too big, i dont know the extention to the dept, only the person

& yet another minute they tell you, there are too many staff turnover in the company, the extension list is outdated.

& when they cant assist you, all they do is sit down there and look at you

good game to noob. the company starts with N


Case 2

A medium listed company in Sri Kembangan, I was lost, the receptionist is super helpful, reassure me its fine and dont worry. when i reach, i was greeted like a customer, even though i am a supplier, bring shown to the meeting room, being offered a very good coffee or tea and tell me the person will be down in a minute

the only thing that touch my heart was. the person is handicapped naturally, he was limping as he is walking, & he has a look of retarded people, though his speech is slow, he was polite. and his smile is genuine from heart. The company start from K


How can a person like that serve me like a king while a normal person who have everything treat me disrespectfull??

The next time i open my own company, i will put people who can accomplish thing. not people who 'for display only'


Case 3

my gf pc kong. i send to a shop in subang parade. when i walked in i wasnt being greeted at all. his assistanst turn on my pc and dont know what is the problem therefore he asked the boss(who never bother look properly) - tell me its rm 50 for format from far

i was furious and i said. its not about the charges, would you come here and take a look at the problem before u open your mouth?

he came without apologize, take a look and said. oh this, reinstall everything, and still rm 50

i said fine. thank you and walk out. neverthe less, he failed to give me confidence to put my pc there. and understandably he did not get my business

if u have greeted me, acknowledge my presense as a customer, check my pc properly before saying noob thing, tell me whats wrong with my pc, how u solve it, how long to solve it when expected can take back. and lastly tell me the charges is 50 - and EVEN if the charges is rm 60 i would pay u!

for u have show me the confidence that u can handle my pc !! but the noob shop has lost a rm 50 business & long term business

Instead of throwing my pc out of your shop, i rather kick your butt out...

Good game to good customer service.

Behind scene of EPF Contribution 11% to 8%. 公积金调整背后的隐忧。

For those who are currently working, you may want to see this. I got this information from the email i received.


Assume monthly basic salary is RM4000.
- If your monthly EPF contribution is 11% ( RM440 ), taxable income = RM3560, income tax payable = RM77.
- If your monthly EPF contribution is 8% ( RM320 ), taxable income = RM3680, income tax payable = RM109.
Conclusion : If you choose to contribute 8%, you will end up paying more income tax to the government,
which will make the government richer. Finance Minister Najib said this measure is meant
to boost up the slow-down market, but from this example wee see that the money does not
go into the market. Instead the money goes direct into the government's pocket through
the greater amount of income tax that we will have to pay.

假设 薪水RM4000

- 选择 EPF 11%也就是RM440taxable income RM3560,所以tax RM77
选择 EPF 8%也就是RM320 taxable income RM3680,所以tax RM109


That is why I am waiting for the form to be filled to change the 8% EPF contribution back to 11%. 有杀过没放过。。哈!

Please share this information with your friends, and kindly correct me if there is any mis-calculation above. 我可不是数学精算家,请多多指教~

My Organic Veggie Garden at Home - by my mom ^_^

I enjoy home veggie gardening which I picked up when I was in primary school. my school provided a small corner for pupils to grow vegetables. I remembered a few of my classmates went to collect pig's dropping for fertilizer. When harvesting, marks were given according to the weight & kinds of veggie. It was a satisfactory hobby, not only gaining the knowledge of gardening, I could have my own grown veggies on dinner table.

Nowadays, many vegetables from market are not safe to consume, they contain excess of insecticide & pesticide which are harmful to our body. If using artificial fertilizer for long time, organisms in soil are killed, the soil is spoiled. Healthy soil yield healthy food.

I had a small piece of land beside my house, I grow veggies like kangkong, bayam, long bean, petola, bittergourd, lettuce, bai chai, chai sin, ladyfingers, eggplant. Sometimes sweet potatoes and ginger are grown, these plants take about 4 months and nine months respectively.

Usually, I dig a hole, dump the kitchen food waste to the hole and cover with soil.
OR I use an empty paint-tong, make few holes at its bottom, fill with used top soil to about 1/3 tong and then dump the kitchen waste in till the tong is full, put soil on top and cover the tong .
It takes about 4 months, this compost is fertilizer. The water for soaking mushroom is good for compost and soil.

Organic veggies are expensive in market. This home gardening is enjoying, money saving , provide veggies instantly & good exercise for me.
For leafy veggies, I usually grow 2 to 3 types at a time, so I have different dishes.

Here are some photos of my garden.

Dragon Fruit Ice 龙珠果冰!!!

I am pretty sure you are going to love this! 除非,你是不喜欢吃冰的~~哈哈~

Sour Plum (Seedless)无核酸梅
Ice 冰


Cut Dragon Fruit

Haha... is time to see show!
Presented by: Amanda

Put in the ice into blender.

Follow by sour plum... 是不是已经开始流口水了呢? 嘿嘿...


But, when to stop?

*Hint - Stop when the sound of blending become very smooth indicating all the ice is blended into snow like size. 总之是打到碎就对了啦...

If it is over blended, it will become water.. That is different type of drink already.. T_T

Almost! wait for 3 more minutes.

Now only put in Dragon Fruit.

Blend for while..

Yeah! look delicious right?

Add in some water to dilute its concentration. 但别加入太多水,一旦变成龙珠果水就没那么好吃了。。。opps,是‘喝’。。。哈哈!

Is time to serve...

Very delicious, i would personally rate it 9.9/10.

Very worth it to have a try, and it is not complicated. 像我这样的懒人只会好吃懒做...怪不得越吃越胖...


Special thanks to AhSing & Family for introducing such a great and tasty drink!
