    Just a quick thought after a few frustrating transaction with eCommerce site. It is 2015, so I thought, perhaps I should really put down my guard about eComerce scam in Malaysia, so I did do some transaction in some unknown website. They are safe of course, but not really doing a good eCommerce business. First, I was encounter with a site that sell another merchant product. Gave me the wrong information, I bought it, then I filed a refund. Refund took some times. Here is the reason #1 why eCommerce is not booming in Malaysia: No quality control or even verification. With this in mind, do you…

    Dear Papa, It has been ten years since you're gone. Never imagined I would be missing you everyday for ten years, but I guess I did. :) Ten years have passed, but the feeling of not having you around anymore is just as raw as it was ten years ago. A lot has happened. A lot of milestones achieved in these ten years. I'm a little disappointed that you were not around to witness it, nor to taste the fruits of your labour. But that's the cards we were dealt with, right? So we live with it. The supermarket business that you started more than twenty years ago has been making a lot of progress…

    With the crashing ringgit and the GST, I thought Malaysians may be more cautious with their spending. I thought wrong. This was the scene at the most recent MATTA Fair at PWTC. It took me one good hour to make find a parking spot 1km away from the venue, and another good hour just to make my way through the queues into the 5 huge exhibition halls playing host to the MATTA Fair. If Malaysians wanna travel, they will spend - and not even the weak ringgit is gonna stop them! Despite the rising popularity of lesser-known "hipster" destinations, travelling to Europe remains one of many…

    Unlike the current generation of entrepreneurs who can count Robert Kiyosaki, Donald Trump and Steve Jobs as inspirational figures, my late father have few well-known figures he that looked up to. One such exception, is Lee Kuan Yew. When I was 7, I saw on my father's desk a biography of Lee Kuan Yew. "Who is that, papa?" "He is someone incredibly extra-ordinary. Thirty years ago, Singapore and Kuching were the same but he developed Singapore so much. No one could ever have imagined. Read, and you will soon know, son."

  • The online banking opportunity

    Colin Charles
    10 Aug 2015 | 2:47 am
    It’s 2015, everyone I know makes use of online banking. In fact in Malaysia you’re getting online banking mobile apps that also take advantage Apple’s fingerprint sensor to give you a quick balance. Yet, you can’t take a photo of a cheque and get yourself credited, like you can do in the USA. But that’s not the online banking I’m referring to. Online banking as a service or conduit for your physical bank is pretty boring. I’m thinking of the online savings accounts like ING Direct does provide you in Australia — high interest rates due to not having physical bank branches to…

    I’m excited to be at LinuxCon North America in Seattle next week (August 17-19 2015). I’ve spoken at many LinuxCon events, and this one won’t be any different. Part of the appeal of the conference is being able to visit a new place every year. MariaDB Corporation will have a booth, so you’ll always be able to see friendly Rod Allen camped there. In between talks and meetings, there will also be Max Mether and quite possibly all the other folk that live in Seattle (Kolbe Kegel, Patrick Crews, Gerry Narvaja).

    The way I see money being invested lately makes me think of a proverb, “a fool and his money are soon parted”. There has been a lot of talk recently about “the gig economy”. The FT has a series titled the New World of Work. The NYT has been covering this as its part of the US election campaign as well (see: Defining ‘Employee’ In The Gig Economy). The WSJ continues on with What’s the Gig Deal?. The Economist was ahead of this trend in 2011 — Labour markets: The gig economy. Anyway, this isn’t a post about the gig economy per se. For…

While I still occasionally swing by The Wing, The Bridge, and The Cabin (in that order), this lounge has become my favourite, as you can get a 20-30 minute complimentary massage, which makes the transit a lot more bearable. Today’s interesting conversation in the massage area (it is usually quiet, but occasionally you get a chatty passenger) happened to be with a gentleman on the same flight I would be on.

    WordPress keeps improving with new features in each new edition. Some of these new features are so subtle that you might have overlooked them. In version 4.2, for example, WordPress adds a set of new Emojis which you could use to make your post more fun and expressive. To display these Emoji, WordPress loads a script, wp-emoji-release.min.js, behind the scenes. However, if you find that you do not use Emoji much, there is not point on loading this script, and you might want to consider removing this feature. Here are two ways you can do so.

    I subscribe to a lot of newsletters to keep me updated with the fast-changing industry I’m in, web development. Recently I see more frequent use of emoticons or Emoji in the email subject line. Intrigued, I looked up on the issue and found a few studies suggesting benefits when emoticons are used in the email subject line, specifically increasing the email open rate, which is good for business. Having an icon is certainly more attractive to the receivers which would explain the higher open rate. If you ever wonder how this can be done, this is the trick you are looking for. Adding…

    Ever since the dawn of modern gaming, we’ve been a bit more drawn to worlds that mimic life rather than flout its rules. Games are more gripping when they give us access into corners of the real world which we otherwise can’t engage with, or when they let us make decisions that, otherwise, either aren’t ours to make (like building skylines and communities in SimCity), or would get us in trouble if we were to make them (like joy-riding in Grand Theft Auto). It’s this necessary but disappearing parallel between real life and the illusion of reality that makes open-world…

    27 Aug 2015 | 10:46 am
    The Malaysian Ringgit has collapsed in the last 6 months. This is largely due to the large amount of consumer and government debt (that I mentioned were problems for the Malaysian economy previously) with a large amount of that debt help by foreigners, the collapse of the natural resource prices (oil and gas and others) and dumping of Malaysian assets by investors losing confidence in Malaysia’s government and economy. The economy is actually surviving better than you could hope given the problems listed above. The economy continues to grow, even if the rate of growth has decreased. The…

That location can provide a distinctive JB feel (not just one of 1,000+ malls all over SE Asia that really are all basically the same). Peppering it with small shops and art galleries and food and museum and street art is great. And obviously what is desired is a nice walkable place that has history. JB is trying to do the same with the new “riverwalk.” But if you then allow people to park cars…

    To ensure their children remain competitive in the increasingly borderless world, more and more Malaysian parents are opting for international and private education for their children. However, these schools do not come for cheap. In 2012, the Malaysian government has eliminated the quota for Malaysian enrolment at international schools. Due to the quota and the lack of affordable options, only selected affluent Malaysians could afford to send their children to these schools previously.

But it’s a good thing, according to tourism and culture minister Datuk Seri Nazri Aziz, who said that the tumbling Ringgit will favour the local tourism industry. Well, in theory, a weaker currency should encourage overseas tourists with stronger currencies to spend their money here. It should also encourage everyday folks like you and I to holiday domestically, as overseas vacations are just too expensive now. But real-life statistics suggest…

In short, it’s smart to pick properties with uber solid fundamentals which will appreciate over years, not months. As such, KLCC may just fit the bill because after all, how can you go wrong with…
