Porting over from Maxis to U Mobile

Tuesday, March 1st, 2016

Swapping or porting over your telco plan to another such as Maxis to U Mobile can be tedious. Mine was not easy because it was a supplementary plan latched onto my wife’s Maxis principal line. Maxis is still the best telco in West Malaysia having the best LTE/3G internet data coverage as such they do charge a premium for their service. The supplementary line was more for backup as I still have my work line with Maxis. Besides the supplementary at RM30 only has 250MB of internet data was not quite sufficient, so it was time to move over to another telco.

BMW Mini Countryman driving adventure

Monday, July 11th, 2011

Any roadie trip would always be exciting especially planned with a large group of friends. What’s more, when you could also try out a new car like the BMW Mini Countryman! This was a simple roadie trip from Klang Valley to Penang, Pearl of the Orient. The drive wasn’t so difficult as being on sales I need to drive about just about anywhere. So the journalist here was probably not a season outstation driver.

Nowadays with the superb PLUS highway the drive would be rather straight forward, unlike the days when I started driving from KL to Pena

ng using trunk road and having to overtake lumbering big brother trucks and lorries, and sometimes there could be a stretch of them in a row making overtaking extremely difficult and dangerous!

Now with the highway, you only need to worry about feeling drowsy and falling asleep at your wheel. The long easy drive really dull your senses, so take breaks often to clear your head and freshen up as much as possible before continuing with your journey.

Stylish hotel, check. Fantastic shopping, check. Cool ride, check. The perfect getaway is closer than you think.

“How many adults can you fit in a Mini?” I was kicking back with a glass of Chardonnay when a portly holidaymaker leaned in to ask me this. [editor: answer at end of article if you can’t wait to know! Cheers!]

It was a sweltering evening, and the models had just concluded their parade across the ultra-hip lobby of the Hard Rock Hotel. All eyes followed as they disappeared behind a wall decorated with candy-coloured Coach bags from the Summer 2011 collection.

On the move: The writers drove in six Minis, for 547km, from Kuala Lumpur to Penang.

TNB Tariff Rate Appliance Estimate

Tuesday, March 1st, 2011

Received this email in my inbox which gives an estimate on the TNB Tariff Rate on home appliance usage. Although the costing looks small based on the hourly usage, it all adds up to your monthly bill. My own house electric bill goes for an average of RM150 per month. When the weather is hot with the heavier usage of air-con it can shoot up to RM200+. I heard some of my friends electric bill are as high as RM500+ or more per month! I wonder what they use to use up so much electricity!
