#Tikam Is Back

This is my best day before the end of 2014. I been looking for this game many many years already and finally today I got it. This is a game we use to play at outside the school a tukshop or a car one uncle selling koropok and drink and this Tikam is waiting for us to play. It has so much fun to play all this thing during that time... pay 10 cents to get a ticket then open and see do we have the same number on the top and win the price or not. 
If one of the kid start playing that you'll see his friends stay next to him and told him here here take here sure strike the number one!! hahahah of coz this is lost more than win lah but we just like to enjoy the feeling of victory. Me always buy the drink inside a plastic bag for 30 cents then I pay 50 cent take the 20 cents to play the Tikam! All the kids wish to win the grand price which is the $1.00 lah
So that is one of out childhood games back in the 70's and 80's lah. If I'm not wrong all this Tikam start disappear during late 80's at 1988 already don't see this Tikam anymore.

I been searching this Tikam for many years already. went to Miri, KL and Singapore also don't see their shadow. I ever ask one very old shop at Sarawak do there have this Tikam and the young man reply what is Tikam??? At that moment I know not much people know what is Tikam anymore especially who are born at late 80's 
So I try my best looking around where can I buy this Tikam and I found that at West Malaysia Kota Bharu a wholesale center got selling all this Tikam and variety macam-macam ada!!! Watch the Video HERE below 

So I try to contact the person who post this video but unfortunately the guy no reply my message...
I started to hopeless, no matter how or where I search still cannot find a sign where have.
Then one day I post the tikam photo in my IG and FB finally someone told me where got sell this Tikam. At first I tot is just a joke try to fool around me but then one one old friend told me that the same place also have selling it... and it was in Brunei!!
Then today I went to place which they mention it really have... wow I feel like hitting a jackpot!!!
Suddenly all my childhood memories like a lightning strike on my head it all come back!!!
I feel like I'm a 8 years old boy walking in the store looking at all the Tikam there!!!
Now have more choice and price to win. It got games, Sticker, toys and many many more for you to choice. Me I still like the classic one which is the number you can win coins!
The shop not just only have tikam there but also have some other old skool stuff we use to play during out childhood. I bought some tikam back home and play with my kids then my wife bought the Paper Dolls for them.
Paper Doll is a doll printed at the cardboard paper that you can tear it off and let the doll wear the cloth, bag, hat and pants! Back in our time if I'm not wrong is selling 50 cents. Girls always play that in the class... hehehe if I boring I sometime also join them too!!!
I really really thanks to the people who told me where are this stuff selling... really appreciated. It help a lot to bring back my childhood memories!
Now I can give it and pass it down for my 2 little girls at home! I know many of you are also looking for this where got sell. Is easy to find one.. a wholesale shop behind the QAF at Telanai there!
Ok now I have to back to the game with my 2 little princess.

This one is for girls...

After playing this Tikam with my 2 kids I realize it is a very good game for kids to let them think and learn the numbers!! My I surpassingly to see my daughter she slowly remember what number that can strike and what dinosaur win what points!!

Ten Years Ago Today!!!

Ten years ago this is what I was doing... Me still working at Empire Hotel and we are setting up Sound System and Lighting for the countdown.
Everyday set up from day time to night continue for 2 weeks. We have to complete it before the Christmas. Which we did it but unfortunately the countdown never happen.  
 I never forget this day coz the Tsunami strike during the Boxing Day Indonesia was the hardest-hit country, followed by Sri Lanka, India, and Thailand.
When I hear this new i still believe that it was real... and we start heard that the countdown has to be cancel. Me and all the team still hoping the countdown not gonna be cancel. We still continue doing our work until the 30th December finally we heard is a "NO" then we stop and putting down our tools!
The reason not happening the countdown is for pay respect for the victims at the disaster. 
No countdown me also got nothing to do.... used to it every year countdown I was very busy work... People enjoy the Christmas and New Year Eve, we all see people happy and enjoy. That year finally I can relax do nothing and countdown with my niece at Kg. Mentiri!!!
Now look back my photo... feel time fly really fast. Just like that already 10 years go and my niece she also got her driving license too!

This is the photo during the time we do the set up... for sure many people never see how is the 2004 NYE countdown set up look at that time!!! Now I share my 10 years ago memories with you all. Do you still remember what you do at that day??

 This is where the sound and light control stage!! Not all the people can come here only the specialist people like can come hehehe. Fyi this is the best place to view the whole show!

 Team set up for the giant screen!

 The AV Specialist team group photo after we took down all the lights and speakers.
Wow.. I so slim that time handsome right...hehehe

The Balloons drop... unfortunately it never drop and the prize inside the balloons never giving away!

Believe Or Not Believed That Is The Question

Few days ago I asked people in my facebook page do they believe this Salebration? Surprisingly more than 95% of people don't believe it. I read all the comments most of them said the price are been mark up during the salebration so even the item as discount but still buying the usual price and that is why most of the people prefer go to the neighbor country to do their shopping.
I don't know is it ngam-ngam the timing or what... last week the people go to Miri and Limbang... wow jialat lah the Jam. News paper report that the jam goes to 16km from the immigration post there.
As you can imagine that how many people go out for shopping.
    Honestly.... I cannot do that lah jam for so long just for shopping I don't I can do it if I saw the queue about 1000 meter at Kuala Lurah or Sungai Tujuh for sure I turning back already. That is why I salute the people who line up on the queue.

Now let's looking back about this Salebration back in few years back is call BRUNEI Grand Sale a.k.a BGS then one of the advertising company suggest change the name to Salebration. I'm looking back the history of this event most of it also not a very good response.. of coz there is many reason why not good response but the main reason I think is because of the RM exchange rates lah that is why people love to go there. Especially this month the exchange rate is 2.6 of coz everyone love to go Malaysia for shopping lah. One of my friend told me if you use SGD go change RM you can get 2.67 at the money changer!!!
So that is already the best attraction reason to shopping out there... Not need 50% discount already have  70% for everything people buy there compare what the selabration discount!!!
The more RM doing down the more people going to spend the money there so you just imagine that if the Rm drop to 3.0 omg....whole Miri is Brunei car there!
Too bad the Kuching are too far away from us if not the Kuching people also can share a little few pieces of the pie. 

Drive Smarter with Ford this Holiday Season

With festivities just around the corner, many people are getting ready for road trips. Be it a vacation getaway or a family visit, driving during this holiday season can be a nerve-wrecking and stressful experience with the traffic, restless children and road work. Here are a few tips to ease the driving experience and keep you safe. Be a smarter driver simply by following some of the recommendations below and make your holiday driving experience a breeze.

Hands on the driving wheel
While driving requires undivided attention, it’s almost impossible to have zero distractions. One of the most dangerous, yet widely practiced, habits is using your phone while driving.

As long as you’re on the phone texting or talking, you will have only one hand steering the wheel. Add how your sight is distracted away from the road, with the combination of multiple family members in the car for a long holiday drive, and you have the perfect equation for an accident! Texting can always wait, and your phone should be put down until you’re safely parked and away from the road.

Some of you may opt for hands-free devices, but another option is built-in voice activated technology. The award-winning Ford SYNC® in-car connectivity system helps you make and receive phone calls and also allows you to browse through the music library on your devices via Bluetooth or USB through voice command. It will also read your text messages out loud so that you can stay in touch with friends and loved ones – while your hands stay on the wheel.

Keep your car clean
Even a small object like a water bottle lying in your car can become a hazard. Imagine the consequences when that bottle gets under your gas pedal. Always keep your vehicle nice and clean. It doesn’t just look good, but also adds to your safety.

Another behavior that puts people at risk is piling up the back seat with luggage. This is not only dangerous to you, but also to the drivers behind who cannot see through your windshield, which could lead to an accident if your car brakes abruptly.

Also, always pack heavier items in the lower areas of the vehicle so that in case of a sudden stop the heavier objects remain in place and don’t topple over to injure your passengers.

With Ford, arranging your things in the car has never been easier.  Ford’s vehicles offer smart storage compartments to help drivers keep your cars neat and organized, whether it’s the drawer under the front passenger seat that is big enough for a purse or a laptop computer, or a rear passenger bin by the side of the seats, there’re no excuses for things lying around.

Prepare before your trip
At some point, almost every driver has driven whilst trying to fight off fatigue, especially during the busy holiday season when you’re rushing from one place to the next. Getting in the driver’s seat while tired can be dangerous not just to you and your passengers, but also to fellow drivers on the road. If you are about to set off on a long trip, it’s important to be well rested before you get behind the wheel. If you feel you are not in the right condition to drive, don’t do so.

Plan your route
Before going on a trip it’s always good to plan your route and have a few alternatives in case of unexpected situations like road blocks or extreme weather conditions.  Make sure you give yourself enough time to complete the journey and plan for stops along the way.

Find yourself driving on a hilly slope when you detour? Ford always has your back with our driver assist features, no matter the terrain. If you are driving in the mountains, Ford’s Hill Launch Assist is at your side and will temporarily prevent you from rolling backwards when making a hill start. The system works by maintaining pressure to the braking system for an extra 2.5 seconds, giving you more time and control as you move your foot from brake pedal to accelerator. It’s also useful when you’re stopping and starting on slippery surfaces.

Additional features like the anti-lock braking system (ABS) and Electronic Stability Program (ESP) also give you greater control under any weather conditions.

Want more ways to drive smarter? Here’s more safety advice from Ford:
·       Buckle up and do it properly: The seat belt is still the number one piece of safety equipment, so don’t neglect it.

Microsoft Launches Anti-Piracy Campaign in Brunei

Microsoft Brunei today announced that the company has launched an anti-piracy campaign in Brunei, aimed at curbing illegal distribution of Microsoft® Office software, and Microsoft Windows®. . The initiative was kicked off at an event at the Radisson Hotel with an awareness session for local resellers and retailers on the risks of malware and cybersecurity due to pirated software.

This initiative is part of the continuous effort to educate both retailers and consumers about the risks associated with pirated software as well as the use of aging technology. In the 2013 Global Software Survey conducted by International Data Corporation (IDC), released in May 2014, the piracy rate in Brunei recorded at 66%. We recognize there has been 1 point drop since the last survey, and congratulate the various agencies who have taken initiatives to increase public awareness. However, the piracy rate in Brunei is still very high, affecting future ICT businesses, new innovations and the economy at large in Brunei.

The primary goal of this anti-piracy campaign is to curtail illegal hard disk loading of software and illegal Microsoft Office suites in Brunei’s retailers through education and one-on-one meetings with vendors. “This form of piracy competes directly with legitimate software retailers” said Dyg Haniza Zakariya, Country Manager at Microsoft Brunei. 

“Our goal is to level the playing field by reducing piracy and supporting the efforts of honest retailers who distribute genuine Microsoft products” she added. Microsoft is also calling the Brunei government to design more punitive copyright laws to support the future knowledge economy, in line with the country’s aspiration for more local IP creation. She further elaborated “Software piracy is unfair play that ultimately hurts us all. Economic growth in Brunei is thwarted by piracy – pirated software doesn’t create jobs for students, developers, or Information Technology professionals.

Microsoft’s investigation of computer resellers suspected of software piracy in Brunei was based on leads obtained from a variety of sources, including a local survey through a ‘mystery shopper’ conducted in September 2014. From the survey of 27 local ICT retail companies including their branches, about 81% of the companies are still offering elements of piracy, either immediately or when prompted, made an offer to sell and install pirated software. During the event, Microsoft take the opportunity to reward two local retailers who have demonstrated best genuine behaviour and practice by displaying, promoting and selling both Microsoft operating systems and Microsoft Office at their retail shops. The two retailers appointed as 2014/2015 Genuine Microsoft Resellers are Concepts Commercial Suppliers (Well-known as CONCEPTS COMPUTER) and Elite Computer Systems Sdn Bhd.

In the same vein, Microsoft APAC Corporate Attorney, Mr Jonathan Selvasegaram who co-presented on cyber security during the launch said “More critical, the US Federal Bureau of Investigation warns for the threat of malware-induced cyber-attacks. Criminal syndicates that are often behind the sale of pirated software, use infected computers to launch attacks against entire networks. These spread through shared connections to a home, business, or even government networks – crippling economies and endangering intellectual property.
The next wave of this anti-piracy campaign will be through real purchases of several units of computers and software from those retailers that failed the initial checks and will be followed by police reports if evidence is found of pirated software being sold openly.

"CoinCard" The Future Coins Saving

Is time to count the coins in my piggy bank that I every time buy things at the Kedau Runcit the small chance I put it! All this money is gonna goes to my to little girl bank saving! Not must lah.. just nice got B$200.00 each can have $100.00.
If this is last time I don't have kids I happy loh can go shopping heheheh but now cannot lah got kids already have to start saving some money from them.
 I love to count coin since I was a kid. I like the coins sound... coz the coin sound is the only "Sound of Money" we can heard. Even the thousand dollar note drop on the floor also don't have the sound as nice as a ten cents have!
When every time I take the coins to change I feel kinda malu one... Coz I'll imagine that the shop owner will think I'll broke already no money to spend and now need to change the coin to use! hehehe I think I think too much liao lah.

Now is think about the coins here if there is about 300.000 of house each house have $50.00 keep in the house no use or flow which mean that there is about $15.000.000 of coin not using!
Everyday the markets need the coin to run the business so can you imagine that the market need so much coin but yet many of coin are stuck at our house then the government need to make the coin every year again!! If there is a way can solve that problem I think we can have a lot of time and money to make new coin out!!!
I do have an idea to solve this question one of that idea is call CoinCard!!
Basically it just like a card for the customer to use for get the change of the coin and transfer into their CoinCard account! Example every time you buy a newpaper and a cup coffee it cost you $2.20 then you pay $3.00 and you get you change for 80 cents then the 80 cent will buy in your car or drawer, slowly day by day the money will become like what I have now. If every time the 80 cent I can use a card let the shop and scan then deposit in that CoinCard account isn't it that it make us more convenient? We don't have to bring so many and heavy coin in our pockets or wallet! Some more the coin will never lost or drop in the drain! Government each year not need to make new coins isn't it is a "One Stone Two Bird"
hehehe good right my idea!! Who want to buy my idea lol I sell cheap cheap to you lah!!
If this is really work already we not need to susah susah count the coin and look for a shop to change money... If not go to the bank and the bank have to charge us for the coin lagi right!!!

Like that ngam-ngam $200.00 for my kids!!

B And C Are More Delicious Than A

If you think about it No wrong and my theory are right!
Look think in this way.... When a restaurant their business very good, many people come eat where got time to clean the place as clean as like new!! No dust, no oily, no smelly, no spider web, no ants very very perfect then you get the "A Class" of cleanness.... to get this I see most of the restaurant are equip with aircon and their standard for sure very high one. 
I notice all my favorite restaurant or kopitiam they mostly get B or C never see got A one!!!
Then I realize is real... All the Class B and A their foods are delicious the Class A one... If you don't believe try next time you go compare their foods you'll surprise the result one!!

Hehehe if all the restaurant boss see this post I wonder they all will go apply from A to B or not Lol...
