• Mari Anda Sekat (MAS)

    As the title of this entry is about, got sekat by Malaysian Airlines online miles redemption. In March, I was booking a trip with Retna to Sri Lanka via the miles redemption, the payment could not go through.  Contacted the Malaysia Airlines team via Facebook, no reply. Called the Malaysia Airlines customer line, was told the payment was down since a month ago. Wow, for such a large if not world class airline company, to have its payment system down for a month?  I guess that time, the CEO of the team seriously not doing their job right. So, I called and was charged RM70 per passenger for the call…

  • Just to talk about barbers, barbershops

    I visited about 10 barbershops in Klang Valley, Kuching as well as Kota Kinabalu. I did not photograph any of them, mainly I was having my hair cut, or had my face hair trimmed. Also, I prefer to photograph older barbers, and barbershops.  Just my preference. I have a fixed hairstylist I like to go to for now, and I photographed some barbers and barbershops when our twins were going for their hair cut.  They used to like the older barber, but now their taste in style has changed. While visiting the barbershops, I noticed some distinction which would determined if the barber would be able to make it big…

  • Mobile trojan, getting sophisticated, all for your money

    Mobile banking Trojans hit the list of cyber-headaches in Q2 2018. The number of installation packages for mobile banking – modifications which help attackers avoid detection by security solutions and to expand their arsenal – peaked at over 61,000. This represents a historic high; more than a three-fold growth when compared with Q1 2018, and over double the installations than in Q1 2017. This is just one of the main findings from Kaspersky Lab’s Q2 IT threat evolution report.

  • 你来, 汝来

    Have passed by Nilai many times, coming here, never. So I was there with the twins, as they were attending workshops in Universiti Sains Islam Malaysia (USIM) over the weekend. Of course I would take the opportunities to explore the town, through the chatting with the local as well as photography. We had some ok-ish food in Nilai.  Our colleagues told us plenty of food here, I Google-d, found some, but not the sort I like. So the weekend when we were in Nilai was also the time of the university convocation. I did not see many parents around, thought I could photograph them there.  In fact I seen none.…

  • We joined #joywithsharoncalli

    We love writing. Maybe not in the calligraphy style. We just love to write. When I decided to get the iPad Pro 2 years back, I was contemplating whether I should add Apple Pencil, anyway, I did. So I used the Apple Pencil to take notes during the meetings with clients, as well as learning. Talking about learning, yes, Retna and I will register for things to learn. Today, we did some learning on copperplate calligraphy, organised by CzipLee, taught by @joychong and @ronnycakes. The lesson started quite on time, where the reminder email informed the participants to turn up by 1000, and guess what, we started before 1030 (the…

  • #dirtymee #inconsistent #hardtomaintaingood

    Dirty Mee, a famous eatery in Lukut, before I continue, you are wondering the name. “Dirty?” you would ask. “Yes.  Nothing to do with the cleanliness of the place nor the food.” I would reply. Dirty Mee 拉渣面 was originally a stall setup next to a garbage dump.  The noodle was so famous, hand made, something like wan tan noodle, but not the same.    拉渣 means dirty.  Because the stall was next to the garbage, so it is called that, as easy to remember. Could be mistaken as Pan Mee, again no. However, the texture is more like wan tan noodle, I would say. We have been here before.…
