Nowadays, it is all about responsive website, getting you from mobile phone to tablet to desktop, everything. It is just like employer looking for a designer who can work on Adobe Flash, poster design, video editing. Don’t get me wrong, I am all into responsive website, it is convenient and really worth the work. I don’t think Internet or bandwidth is a problem nowadays.
The problem with WordPress theme businesses, they stuck, stucked with WordPress plugins. It is no surprise that some of the top premium WordPress theme creators are hesitating with responsive design, and encourage the use of mobile plugin instead. That is the best way to get away from having headache of “responsive” plugin.
A typical WordPress users could easily used up to 12 plugins in a time (Solely base on my experience, I don’t have the exact figure though). You can imagine how mess up a responsive theme will be with those plugins activated and crashing onto the screen.
I don’t usually buy stuffs or services for fun, but when I buy an item or service, it is something that will interest me and/or needed to be done.
When you get older, your needs are adding on. I don’t know if I am a greedy bastard or life works this way, you have more needs (or want) than last year.
The problem in Malaysia is they all focus on economy as well as money and forgot about working ethic or business ethic. After a short discussion with my wife, both of us are getting more and more disappointed with what Malaysian can offer. Ironically that including myself, as a business owner.
The differences between what I did and what other did is that I take full responsible and I make it quick and easy. If you are not happy with what I offer, I am gladly refund or if you need some fix and thing I did those, I will investigate (within a day or two only) and make a necessary arrangement.
While other services normally just trying to push here and there and taking more time to cool you down or something (?), I just don’t understand why it took them so long. Some if not most, will just walk away from their responsible without any reply. The main point is responsibility, which I find more services here does not have. Comparing apple to apple – Local hosting with oversea hosting provider.
The last thing I wanted to do in my life now is, to make sure I just accommodate what is “needed” and remove all “wanted”. Simplest thing is always the best thing in life.
I am all about do-it-yourself when it comes to minor stuff at home. I practically fixed everything all the time and it felt good to be useful
That explain how I got some collection of tools, if I may I would even get an auto lift! Just recently I’m into gardening and I’m doing the road side portion now. Looking back, all this home fixing coming from my father attitude. He too is all about do-it-yourself, I lose count how many awesome stuff he built, or fixed together.
DIY is a good habit, at least it gives me a glimpse of how things works. With that habit with me, even I delegated some major task to someone, I will feel uncomfortable, it’s like I did not get in touch with it from start to end, and it gives me a very insecure feeling. Perhaps I was scammed too much too
But anyhow, delegating a task is always a good option here, consider every little thing will require a lot of time, even just to get to a location. Well, life is always about give and take, you give something (time) to get something (money).
It’s a shame to start, I hooked up with cigarette at the age of 14, and I am a full-time nicotine addict by the age of 15 until recently – 29. So in calculation, this will be the 14th year of my smoking life at the age of 29.
I have been trying to quit smoking on the 10th year of my smoking life, I tried literally EVERY possible way of quit smoking, from NRT (Nicotine Replacement Therapy), cold turkey and e-cigarette. Everything failed, and of course that included my own will power. On the 10th year onward, I am actually on “give up” and “give in” situation, promising myself to not smoke a cigarette tomorrow morning and didn’t do it.
I actually spend some fortune on those quit smoking aid. I admit, I rather fool myself than completely remove the little hope that I could quit smoking after the aid. So I go on with e-cigarette, smoking pipe (and I enjoy this one the most one the last few months ) and NRT inhaler (very expensive shit).
Until I stumble this book by some guy named Allen Carr – Easyway to stop smoking.
It was 12.00am when I downloaded the PDF. I plugged in my personal vapourizer, and start reading. At 5.30am I just finished 80 pages (how slow I read), and there is around 40 pages to go, and I went to sleep. Upon woke up at 9.30am, I did not smoke at all and don’t have the desire to smoke too, and I haven’t even finish the book yet. That is how powerful the mind can do the trick on a smoker.
Upon finishing the book (and I was required to smoke when reading the book), I just stop smoking all together. I asked my wife to pack all my smoking related stuff (they range from lighters to pipes to e-cigarettes) into the dustbin.
For 5 years, I’ve been trying to make myself quit smoking by “sacrificing” the cigarette, just to know that I actually “don’t need” the cigarette. The best thing is, I don’t have all those withdrawal symptoms at all! There is no running nose, no mood swing, no shit like those, I just stop smoking and I didn’t even need to adjust my lifestyle at all. I still do what I do all the time just didn’t involve cigarette (using “minus the cigarette” or “without the cigarette” sound like I’m missing something it suppose to be there – Sacrificing).
If you are seriously thinking about quit smoking (if you have any other excuse like your social needs and shit, that means you are not even thinking about quit smoking), get the book and read it. If you truly understand the book, you will stop smoking after you finish the book.
When I was in Sibu, there is no talk about race. Mainly because one ethnic took around 80% of the township and only in the early 2000 that I started to see other ethnics more prominent in town.
So you can imagine the lifestyle in Sibu, and of course how people think, even the people on my age. When people on my age react to race, I get disgusted, mainly because we are one of the most educated generation, so to speak. If someone (especially the politician) tells you Sarawak is very harmony, think again!
I remember one time on a plane to LCCT. There was lots of Dayak in the plane, I sat down according to my number, a young boy stop right in front of me, murmuring to his friend “So many XXX ethnic there”. I am both shocked and angry, seriously, what is wrong sitting with them? And for 2 hours if that even an issue.
Then I bought a house, my friends came to visit me (mainly from Sibu), each of them has one exact same question “I see that your neighbour are all XXX ethnic”. For one, I have known them for years (posted at least a diploma if that help trigger your anger), but I did not expect that question at all. Secondly, they have been in KL for at least 8 – 10 years, either KL changed their mindset, or they just hide it so well back then.
If you ask me, can Malaysia get rid of racism, no, at least in my lifetime
