Streamyx down yet again!

It seems like every few months, my office streamyx broadband will be down. No idea why the service like. I will have to dial tm 100 help line to sort it out.

They will usually go through the process like finding out whether your modem kaput lah or you messed with the IP or something. But since I never touched any of those things it usually end up that they need to reset their servers to get it going again.

Sheesh, Malaysia internet access still got ways to go before they can be as good as other countries world class internet service providers.

Maxis Multi-SIM 1 Line

Maxis multi-SIM 1 Line
Finally went and applied for the Maxis multi-SIM 1 line service. I think it would be useful considering that I got spare mobile phones here and there. Besides, my Sony Ericsson X10 mini pro battery seems to knock out very fast these days. So perhaps a second phone with the same line might come in handy. However, after getting the new multi-SIM card it didn't work with my X10. Hopefully when the 2nd line SIM card becomes activated would work. Now waiting for activation which takes 24 hours. So keeping my fingers crossed. Otherwise I would need to visit the Maxis center again to sort out the issue.

Meanwhile, I'm using the main SIM on my old Palm Centro nicknamed 'the Whiteberry'! Haha! The SIM card has no issue with this mobile phone.
It's been a long while since I typed on the teenie weenie keyboard so it is a little slow to tap out this blog!

Truly bad Friday traffic

It was work. No choice. I would rather not drive around Friday evening rush hour. From airport to hotel took me a whopping 2 hours of grinding, slow, traffic jam! Not to mention contributing to the CO2 emmission to global warming...

Decided to take my dinner first before heading back home. Hopefully the traffic would have ease off. Perhaps a bit of stroll through the shops to clear my head. A later drive might be better with the easing of rush hour traffic.

Oh, well. Life's like that.

Home sweet home

It's good to return home to good old Malaysia! Sure the trip was short, but I felt it was enough. My legs muscles are aching from all the walking!
Time to unpack, take a shower and go for sleep. Back to work tomorrow...

Now at KLIA enjoying cup of coffee

.. just arrived KLIA airport. Still got many hours to kill so end up having a nice cup of coffee at some cafe.
The taxi journey was interesting. Never knew the taxi driver was a millionaire. He made hiis fortune as an engineer in oil and gas exploration. Due to an accident, he quit his job but found retirement too boring and wasted much money to fill in his time. So now to control himself, he decided to take on a taxi servicing.
In life you just don't know a person's background. An assuming person could well be a person very well off!
Well, that's life and for the rest of us, we just have to work our butts off to have any semblence of a lifestyle!

Co Trip to Shanghai

Well, we be going for company trip to Shanghai 4D/3N. Leaving behind darling wife and smiling baby. This morning was last chance to see baby as tonight I won't have time to see his happy face and hyper active mode. The flight would be rather tiring as it a very early morning flight way pass midnight and arriving early morning, bleary eyed and off and about sightseeing after clearing immigration.
The arrangement is very tight as boss only allowed for very short days as he would like to avoid disruption to work. It was rather difficult to find a travel agent willing to take such a small group and with such a short duration tour and travel. So the travel package was necessarily expensive in order to cover all expenses while making sufficient commission for the travel agent as well.
Anyway, the trip is more for the staff as a reward for making enough for the company. I've been to Shanghai perhaps some 10 years ago. This trip is not so intriguing for me, but I still have to tag along.
For that kind of pricing it was not worth it for me to bring along my dear darling wife along. Besides, my financial is rather tight at this moment, so I'm trying to conserve some money.
Anyway, a trip is still a trip, and many preparation has to be made.
Checked the Shanghai weather forecast and it looked bright and sunny. Hot weather just like here in Malaysia!

Extreme heavy rain!

.. It was awhile since the last downpour. So naturally the thunderstorm came with a vengence!
--
I managed to leave work timely but during the rush hour commute, the cats and dogs could not stay their hands any longer.
The end result was a super duper thunderstorm!
If I didn't get away sooner I probably got stuck in a super duper traffic jam. Now i'm back home and relaxing here.
Yeah!
