    Previously known as Ramen Taiko, Taiko Japanese Cuisine is a quirky name for a restaurant because it implies that they are the “big brother” in Japanese food. Well, at least for those who speak Cantonese. But the word ‘taiko’ actually refers to the Japanese drum as seen in the restaurant’s logo. After a change of management and menu, you will ...

    Malaysia’s UMNO/BN regime has been fattening itself and its cronies at the nation’s expense for decades and eaten away most of the people’s human rights,civil liberties and legal prosecutions the better to feel free to feed its insatiable greed. For those of us who see the human race as a life and death contest between the forces of good and bad,virtue and evil,right and might,need and greed or any set of ethical opposites,this has been a week of ups and downs with the suspension of The Edge and the unexpected reshuffle of the Cabinet.

    . By Raul Dancel Philippines Correspondent Straits Times . China has finished dredging sand and coral on a reef in the South China Sea, and is now laying concrete for a 3km runway. High-resolution photos taken by satellite mapping firm Digital Globe on July 18 showed only two dredgers on Subi reef, part of the Spratly archipelago in the southern half of the South China Sea. But there were 54 large supply ships at Subi, up from 38 on June 5. There were also more concrete transport trucks on the island that China has created so far on the reef: 34, up from 20.

    5 Real Excuses Why Malaysians Are Still Not Insured: Let me add in another one that I recently found out… You can’t fucking get a human to talk to about your policy when you need to (The agent died, ok?!). It’s all about press 1 for waiting, press 2 for more waiting, press 3 for even more waiting shit! The issue with insurance agencies nowadays is that they are out of human touch. Don’t believe the TV commercial about how human they are, they are not slightly bit human!

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. He was born in Kerala, but grew up in New Delhi, and spent the last four years as an expat in Kuala Lumpur. His…

    18 Jul 2015 | 9:34 am
    I read with great interest (including the comments thread) about recapping seed rounds by both Brad Feld and Joanne Wilson. Reprehensible beahviour. Also in general angels don’t go in more than the first round. Which brings me to a general worry/concern – companies where early employees become minority shareholders (not option holders, shareholders). Where they pay their first few salaries in exchange for shares. Or if after some M&A activity, folk become shareholders. One can easily own 1% or more of a company this way. When the going gets tough, vultures do come along.

    I’m not a huge fan of the marketing surrounding the “lean startup” or the idea of a “minimum viable product”. There’s merit to all these ideas, but the hype is what kills it (for me). I have realised something recently — I spend a lot of time & energy writing emails and creating documents within Google Docs or Keynote. Its just the nature of how things work. When it comes to chatting, there’s IRC and lately even Slack. All this bashing on the keyboard means that I very rarely have time to blog and talk about the things that are going on via mail/docs.

    The best thing about owning a mobile device is the mobility it provides; the worst thing is that being mobile raises the chances of you losing your devices in unimaginable ways. In circumstances where you actually lose a device, there are many third-party apps that can be used to track lost or stolen devices, but there are also dedicated tools for iOS and Android users. For iOS devices, owners can track their iPhone, iPad or Mac with the Find my iPhone app. For Android users, the lesser-known equivalent is the Android Device Manager.

The new consumption tax, Goods and Services Tax (GST) and the fuel subsidy reforms. These are seen as supportive of Malaysia’s finances even as federal government debt and explicit guarantees continue to increase. Fitch is one of the three nationally recognised statistical rating organisations (NRSRO) designated by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission in 1975.

    The National Higher Education Fund Corporation (or also known as PTPTN) is frustrated that persistent defaulters continue to ignore various measures taken to make repayment easier on their pockets. One of the efforts to encourage borrowers to pay their loan is the Ujrah scheme introduced in 2008. The Syariah-compliant Ujrah loan repayment scheme charges a flat fixed rate of 1% per annum, while the conventional scheme charges an administrative fee ranging from 3% to 5% per annum on the reducing balance. It was introduced to encourage default borrowers to settle their outstanding loans in a…

    9 Jul 2015 | 9:20 pm
    There’s really no two ways about it – the biggest factor which determines if an investment is going to pay out or not in the future is the buying price. Figuratively speaking, you can buy a dud and still turn a profit as long as you have got the patience (and the holding power) to ride the fluctuations of the market cycles. However, even if you’ve gotten yourself a prime piece of freehold real estate in the middle of Kuala Lumpur, you’re not gonna be ballin’ hard anytime soon if you’re paying through your nose at face-palmingly high valuations (cough, TRX,…

As you might know (if you were one of those who came on launch day), the site crashed in a rather spectacular fashion, and while it had since recovered, its uber slow loading speed (and I mean REALLY slow) meant that it was almost as useful as a Durex machine in Vatican city.
