  • Copyright stuff

    21 Feb 2015 | 10:41 pm
    One big question I always have - Copyright. Anyone can enlight me a bit here? Say: I hired a photographer for my wedding. After I got all the photos from the photographer, I give it to my friends, who then post it online and on Facebook. Short and sweet right? Now, the photographer goes to my friends and threaten a legal suit because those photos are copyrighted by the photographer. So, are those photos mine to share or do I need permission from the photographer to share? Or in this case, do my friends need permission from the photographer or me? This same thing goes to web design. I hired a…

  • Goodbye LKY

    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."

    Dear Papa,   Gosh, has it been 9 years already?      I was asked about it the other day and I almost couldn't believe that it has been that long.  There's so much you had missed out on since you left, papa.   The amazing thing is that... even so long after you had left, there are still so many random strangers coming up to me and to koko, telling us pretty much the same old things.   "I knew your dad."   "We would be in meetings after meetings, talking for weeks and weeks on a problem we couldn't solve. Then when your dad walked in,…

    They say in life, it is not just what you know, it is who you know. I first heard of the Entrepreneurs' Organization (EO) through Marcus Luer, who served as my mentor for MillionaireAsia's Enterprise Development Challenge two years ago. In fact, joining EO was the very first advice Marcus gave me. "It is very important that you surround yourself with like-minded individuals," he said. "When you are in the company with other individuals in similar position in life like yourselves, you get access to a whole group of people who supports you, mentors you and gives you opportunity…

    #AttemptAtFacebookClickBaiting "Finally, it's happening." I made it. My dream has come true - I finally got to fly business class on an international long-haul flight for the very first time. Granted, I was on board as a guest of Qatar Airways, but still - this was a very special moment for me. With repeated awards and accolades such as "Best Business Class" and "Airline of the Year", I knew I was in for a treat. "So this is how the one percent travels," I thought to myself as I stepped into the front cabin of Qatar Airway's brand-spanking new Boeing 787 Dreamliner. Maybe it was the dynamic…

    Japanese commercial-movie for Casio EX-FR10, a digital camera which separates the lens from the controller. Accessories are provided so that the lens can be placed/attached to various spots; not sure if it’s a new idea but looks interesting. Retail price is around USD450. I’m looking for a new compact camera, this is a plausible alternative. I’m a bit sceptical with the brand’s image quality though.

  • Developers: Why You Shouldn’t Skip Documentation

    Thoriq Firdaus
    30 Mar 2015 | 8:01 am
    In the development realm of mobile apps, web apps, desktop apps, or JavaScript libraries, documentation plays an important role that could determine the software’s development success. But if you have ever done documentation, you’d agree with me that it is pretty much the least favorite things for developers to do. Unlike writing code (which is what developers signed up to do), documentation (which we didn’t) has to and should be easily digested by everyone. Technically, we have to translate a machine language (code) into a language that is understandable to humans, which is…
  • 15 Lessons “The Art of War” Teaches You About Winning Life Battles

    30 Mar 2015 | 3:01 am
    The Art of War by Sun Tzu is widely regarded by many as not only a “bible” for the battlefield, but also a great source of lessons for life in general. Life in itself is a constant struggle to, if not stay on top, at least make it through daily challenges, while making the most out of our resources. Subject to personal interpretation, The Art of War can also be a great source of inspiration and guidance to web designers and developers in their work struggles.

    There’s a lot of effort that goes into running a blog professionally. And the larger part of a blogger’s time is spent in researching and organizing information – often more than it takes to create the content itself. But it’s possible to save a significant amount of time at this stage if you use the right curation tools. Curation helps you filter out the signal from the noise and manage information more efficiently. Here are a few such curation tools that can help you do this. One thing we kept in mind while creating this list that the tools should be aimed for use by…
  • 15 Lightbox Libraries For Mobile Responsiveness

    Thoriq Firdaus
    26 Mar 2015 | 6:01 am
    Lightbox is one popular way to overlay images on the web. When you click on an image, the Lightbox pops up with some form of animation, and dims the background so your focus is on the image itself. The image is also larger in scale. Most popular Lightbox JavaScript libraries that we have known for years let you do this well on desktop, but not so much on mobile platforms. Neglecting this, and the need for responsiveness, is not a good idea nowadays, which is why this collection of 15 responsive Lightbox libraries must be checked out.

  • Tanjung Piai National Park – the Southernmost Point in Asia

    25 Mar 2015 | 11:56 pm
    Tanjung Piai National Park is the Southernmost point in mainland Asia – located in Johor, Malaysia. The park is about 80 km from Johor Bahru. The video shows my view as I walked through a mangrove forest and emerging onto the Johor Straits. The video zooms in to see part of Singapore (since Singapore is an island off of Asia this point is the southernmost point on mainland Asia instead of Singapore). And if some in Singapore try to claim that title, which some do, then why not Indonesia? The video also shows the line of ships waiting to dock in Singapore. The end of the video shows the…
  • Cheng Ho Cultural Museum, Malacca

    2 Feb 2015 | 6:28 pm
    Cheng Ho Cultural Museum is a small museum in Malacca dedicated to the memory of Cheng Ho (the more modern conversion to an English name calls him Zheng He). It is believed that the present Museum is situated on the original site of Guan Chang built by Cheng Ho, the Ming Grand eunuch, about 600 years ago. His fleet of several hundred ships sailed 7 times to the Western Ocean from China between 1405 and 1433. Historic timeline of Malacca Historical records reveal that Ming Dynasty’s Admiral Cheng Ho (Zheng He) visited Melaka at least five times during his famous seven voyages to the Western…
  • Making the Streetscape Walkable

    19 Jan 2015 | 4:03 pm
    Response to Let’s do more for tourism in JB I agree, JB has much to offer tourists and room to improve. Making locations like Jalan Tan Hiok Nee attractive to tourists is important. 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…
  • 2014 Make Malaysia My 2nd Home (MM2H) Statistics

    12 Jan 2015 | 7:21 pm
    Make Malaysia My 2nd Home (MM2H) is the program started by Malaysia in 2002 to encourage expats to stay in Malaysia by offering a long term (10 year) visa. The MM2H program is a very good idea to aid economic development in my opinion. It brings in foreign currency which is very useful: both from fixed deposits and spending by expats. The currency help is especially helpful right now. The Malaysian Ringitt has collapsed in the last few months to just 3.57 MYR to the US $ now. It was stable at about 3 a couple years ago and slowly declined to 3.3 over a couple years before the recent collapse.
  • Rhinoceros Hornbills on Mount Santubong

    23 Dec 2014 | 12:44 pm
    My single most amazing experience during several years in Malaysia was watching Rhinoceros Hornbills fly around on my hike on Mount Santubong on Borneo in Malaysia. I stayed in a treehouse cabin at treehouse cabin, Permai Rainforest Resort (in Damai about 45 minutes from Kuching). From there it was a 15 minute ride to the trailhead. The hike of Mount Santubong was amazing itself, and I will post more about it later. It was the longest most vertical hike I have been on. At what I think was the first overlook I stopped and ate a snack and drank some water. And during my stop hornbills started…

    30 Mar 2015 | 7:42 pm
    As house prices in Malaysia continue to surge in the past few years, first time home buyers are finding it more and more difficult to afford a residential property, especially in the urban areas. The middle and lower income groups have no choice but to continue renting or buying their houses in the outskirt — which means commuting longer and further to go to work and home. The Government heard the cries for help and has established a few cooling measures to stablise the housing prices and also to help these groups of people to finally afford their own home. One of the efforts introduced…

    Life is unpredictable and often comes with a series of twists and turns that can throw off even the most meticulous of plans. This is particularly true when it comes to your finances. An unexpected event such as an uncovered expensive medical condition can drain your bank account and put you in debt. A new job opportunity may require you to purchase a laptop that you cannot afford. Or you could be in the midst of a promising business opportunity that calls for a hefty deposit. With no other option, we sometimes are forced to sell our assets at a less than favourable prices. Whatever the…

  • Buying A Property? Ask These Three (3) Questions Before You Take The Plunge

    Khai Yin
    25 Mar 2015 | 8:49 pm
    If you have been in the property game for long, you will soon realize that it’s an industry which is driven pretty much by emotions. The truth is that while we like to think that we make decisions purely on reason alone, in actuality we (often subconsciously) choose to buy based on our feelings (“This place gives me a good vibe”, “I grew up in a house which looks really like this”, “Our bed will really match the wallpaper and the carpet”, etc etc). And as we have said before, if you’re not careful, emotions will screw it all up for you. The…
  • How To Pick An Agent: The No BS Guide

    16 Mar 2015 | 8:28 am
    Just yesterday we have signed up the 130th agent through our GoodLeads program. That’s not a big number, but I’ve deliberately under-promote it for one simple reason: an agent has got to be pretty self-selective in order to apply to join. And of course, agents who are already in the program would normally STFU about it because let’s face it – this is a dog-eat-dog industry, and agents want to hoard all the good leads for themselves. The truth is that there are enough leads to go around; we have now more than 10,000 subscribers to the GoodPlace Digest (a large majority…

    Look dude, I screwed up,” Michael (not his real name) sighed as he slumped in his seat in front of me at the HackerHub. But his lethargy soon turned into mild anger. “I bought into this dream of getting rich through property. Someone sold the me idea of buying these three properties. And now I’m $120,000 down. Oh man, I feel like a sucker.” I sat silently and waited for him to complete his rant. But his anger subsided as quickly as it had risen. “I’m not a newbie by any means,” he confessed. “I’ve owned properties. I bought the place I…

Built by YTL Land (which has been making headlines of sorts with its Fennel condominium project in Sentul), it is the venerable developer’s first project in the island state, with Gross Development Value (GDV) of some RM330 million. This upmarket condominium project features some 115 units which are housed in three blocks. Priced between RM1,200 to RM1,500 per square feet, the project is clearly targeting upper tier buyers which would…

    Just last week an old high school friend of mine came down from Taiping and we met up for a teh tarik session in Setiawalk, Puchong where I work. The last time I saw him was when I took my SPM results back in the mid 1990’s (yes, I’m that old), and so I was surprised that he would come and catch up with me after so many years (two decades!). And so Willie Loong (that’s this real name – don’t laugh) had come over to ask me about a couple of “opportunities” that were pitched to his family by a group of agents last month in Taiping.

We worry about toilet facilities, where to shower, will the river be clean. Where would I sleep? In a tent or out in the open? What about electricity and do we have to lug all our supplies with us through the jungle? Lets face it, the spirit of adventure is still with us but many of us are not young anymore or in high school. We…

Tambunan is a hidden gem of a valley in the interior division of Sabah and I think it’s the most picturesque of a set of three valleys namely, Tambunan, Keningau and Tenom that are found in the interior. It is located about 80km from Kota Kinabalu, along the road that leads to Tenom. The Tambunan valley is located at an altitude of 750m…

    Part of the forested Park.Living in a city can have its drawbacks. Too many tall concrete buildings cramped together, no matter how beautiful, will eventually make most of us yearn for some wide open places with trees and flowers where we can commune with nature. In many great cities in the world, parks have been built to add that breathe of fresh air for its inhabitants. Even though we do not consider Kota Kinabalu City to be on the same scale as Kuala Lumpur or Hong Kong, it is still rather stressful to navigate the traffic everyday and live in such close proximity to our neighbors in…
