A Song For The Ex

This song is dedicated to my ex who cheated on me with someone else. I will always remember you as person who is dishonest and disrespect of relationship. There is no good memories I can keep from you.

I will find someone who is better than you. You don't deserve to be love by anyone and believe me you will never find love in your life. I am never going forgive you for the things you did to me.

Remember, you will always be hurt worst than the way you hurt me. You believe in karma, so karma will bite you back. I am removing you forever from my memory and my life.

Ning Baizura, Jacklyn Victor & Shila - Beribu Sesalan

Ku susuri malam ini
Yang tidak berbintang sunyi sepi
Juga rembulan dah menghilang
Dalam kelam ku sendiri

Ku mencari hembus bayu
Yang selalu berbisik madah rindu
Kini membisu dalam sayu
Tidak ku temu suaramu

Kekasihku di jalanan yang berliku
Di saat ku perlukanmu
Tertutup jua segalanya terhadapmu
Di sini ku tersedu-sedu

Setelah cinta pergi
Ku mengusung duka ini diiringi
Kisah janji dimungkiri lagi

Kekasihku di jalanan yang berliku
Di saat ku perlukanmu
Tertutup jua segalanya terhadapmu
Di sini ku tersedu-sedu

Setelah cinta pergi
Ku mengusung duka ini
Diiringi

Kisah janji
Dimungkiri
Dimungkiri

Sia-sia ku
Mencintaimu
Setia padamu
Percayakanmu

Sebak dadaku
Retak hatiku
Luka jiwaku
Dihiris pilu

Sia-siaku
Mencintaimu
Setia padamu
Percayakanmu

Sebak dadaku
Retak hatiku
Luka jiwaku
Dihiris pilu

Beribu sesalanku

Blog On Hold

Well well well. Hello spidey! Nice web on my wall. Caught any bugs?

Anyway, just an update for all of you who still reads my blog. This update should cover the month of October. Since we only have like few more days before November come. So fast time flies. I don't think I have enough time to actually finish my work.

From 1-9 October I was on holiday. Yippie. I was lucky to get two week off actually. So with such little plan (ok I lied) I headed to Bangkok and Ho Chi Minh with my loves one. The real agenda was to shop shop and more shopping. Bangkok was relatively cheap compare to Ho Chi Minh. So for future notes and reference, go to Bangkok ok.

Spending wise for me is not much. I more to relax trip than to stress trip. If you got what I mean. Hmmm... Maybe I should do some summary on both my trips later in future. Far far away future.

Next would be my Progress Check. Ok. I passed. Nothing to brag about. Moving on.

My Safety Check I got 1 wrong for the questionnaire. So no more record of having 100% for the test. Sad.

Then I'm busy with my work work work. I think I spend more time working at night compare to day time. So I have now reason to sleep during the day time. Yay!

I've not so keen on going to gym lately. My gym got blown out and still they not yet open. Yeah. U know the story for sure. I'm partially lying. Hahaha.

But I have been to other's country FF. I would say their are awesome. Like in Perth the FF is 4 storey high and in Bangkok you don't have to bring anything because they give you shirt, and pant for you to do your work out.

The newest baby in our company - I've tried it. I can't wait to try more. It's not blue ok. Such a yellow brain you all got.

That's about it. Until next post. God know when would that be. Hahaha.

Wrong Timing

I think I don't know what the actual timing now for my body. Been working odds hour and rest at different timeline.

Ok. I don't know what I'm talking about now. I just feel very tired lately. I think I need to go to the gym more often. So I could build up more stamina and endurance. I have been cutting down gym so much.

But don't blame me. I was busy work work too. Plus I have so many things to do when I'm not working. It's a never ending thing I guess.

Oh ya. I do apologies for hiding from blogging for while. Busy busy busy. That's all I can say. I do have a lot of story to tell. Just don't have the mood nor the idea to post it. You need to plan ok.

Signing off.

Stressly Excited

Ok. I got leave approved for October. I'm actually very excited about it. Ya la. First time I can actually plan early where I want to travel. Usually I just make an illegal trip (illegal is just word ok not real one). Feeling lucky and nervous at time scared I got stuck and cant go back and I have to work on the next day. That would be trouble. So much trouble. 

Back to the leave and holiday stuff. I have absolutely no idea where to go. I wanted to do the Asia trip as I only have one week of leave. The problem to that I already flown to most of the places. So I might need to sketch that one out. KIV it for now.

So where should I go.

Planning for holiday is one of the main cause of stress. Some shrink told me about it. I can't remember who but someone. Hahaha. So this would not be good at all. 

Darn it. 

Can't make up my mind where to go. Oh well, I could just stay at home and relax. De-stress. Hahaha. 

Lalala~

Damn Hole

Pulling out the wisdom tooth was not so bad after all. I heard so many unpleasant story about it. The pain. The swelling. So much to bear.

Surprisingly for me, I did not feel any of it at all. It's either the dentist was good at doing the procedure or the painkiller was to powerful or I just ran out of pain nerves. Still its a good thing as I don't have to endure much agony of the pain. 

Now, the only problem I found annoying is the hole left from the tooth area. It's look like small but food keep getting stuck in it. I always having hard time getting the food out from it. 

I tried using my tongue which was the useless choice of all. Then I use the tooth pick with ended up poking the gum like a needle piercing to the skin (painless though). Then my last resort was using the tooth brush to dig it out. The tooth brush kind of dangerous as I think there is a possible chance of me tearing my gum (Ok fine. I exaggerate a little bit).

I wonder if there an easiest solution to this problem? Anyone care to shade some light over here?

Credit Card Collection (So Far)

After few years of consideration (Yeah right!) I had decided to cancel few of the card and maintain just limited number of it. What might the card be? Well basically like the radio said "ONE card is enough". I would say "Over my dead body". Where got enough if only ONE card? I use my card specifically for specific function.

Ok. Let get the details out.


1. Maybank2 Platinum Cards

Basically this is TWO cards. Visa and American Express. The best thing about it is the AMEX gives out 5x TPs and 5% cashback on weekends. Good deal right? So this card is a keeper for me. Currently Visa is the back up and AMEX is my primary card for any transaction. (Note: Image showing Mastercard as Maybank is promoting the card instead)


2. EON Visa Signature

Well, the only reason I'm keeping this card is because of its Priority Pass card which allows you to access any airport lounges worldwide. Definitely a must for me. Plus it does give out sort of "instant loan" with low interest fee. The downside is that I need to spend RM30000 per year to waived the annual fee. Since it's only my first year, I am going to see if they willing to waived it for me. If NOT, will have to let this card go.


3. CIMB Visa Signature

This is a premier card offered by CIMB which allows some discount offers higher than normal offers. In comparison to CIMB Visa Infite (which I wanted initially), I personally find it much better offer (if minus the fine dining privilege) [Changed my mind]. There is no annual fee for this card. Presently this card only serve for my GSC buy 1 free 1 promotion and as back up.


4. CIMB World Mastercard  and CIMB Visa Infinite [Pending approval]

As a compliment to my cards, if I were able to get this card, it would be an accomplishment for me as this would be the highest level of card in Malaysia. Beside the normal premier privilege, the card will also serve as my back up and Mastercard collection in event Visa or AMEX is not accepted by merchant.

Future cards?

So far I don't think I'm going to apply for any new cards even though I have an eye for HSBC and Citibank. Maybe when the offers are better or the necessity of me applying it, I will do it.

Lack of Blogging

Well I am actually pretty much busy lately with work and also my normal day to day routine. So basically I am having a hard time to publish new post regularly.

Plus I am currently maintaining SIX blogs at one time. All except one ARE private. So I don't think it would be release to public view anytime soon.

But its better than I didn't blog at all right?

Tooth Fairy I Want Money

I finally got to pull out my wisdom tooth which giving me a hard time last week. So I force myself and look for a dental clinic which there is doctor who can do it for me. I don't mind paying at all.

After a brief search I managed to locate one at PJ. So without appointment I went straight to the clinic. Fortunately for me there are not many people waiting so I get to meet the doctor quite fast.

Show her my sad face and told her I'm willing to pay up front first before claiming to the company. She agreed to do the procedure.

Did the x-ray first so she know how to pull it out. The horror fun horror start when she going to inject me with the anaesthesia. I was so afraid it would be so painful. Then I asked her a silly question.

"How will the pain be? Like small ant bite or big ant bite?"

To her answer, "It's still ant right?"

It actually was painless. The total of 6 injections and I didn't really feel the pain. Good right? The procedure were fast and I get to keep my tooth.

Tomorrow will be doing another one. This time I think would be ore difficult compare to this one I had. We shall see...

Toothache

New wisdom tooth just came out and it giving a hard time. 

Everyday it's getting painful and painful. Sadly I don't have any day off which enable me to extract this tooth. To be exact I need to take out 3 teeth but doctor say must do one by one. Put me to sleep and take out all. I won't know also. Hahaha. Let the suffering later.

So I am hoping i could do it this Monday. Pain or no pain I must do it. Try to see if my off day is sufficient. If not going to take MC. 

MC MC MC. 

Pain la. Hate this pain. It's annoying.

Maybank iPad2 Event

It was Tuesday and it was my off day. The initial idea was just to go the the bank to settle some stuff at Pavilion. Yes I go to Maybank Pavilion since I can straight chill after that.


So while I was wondering around the mall I noticed something interesting. The queue was long so I didn't bother to asked what it was about. It started at around 6pm. By the look of it people would already figure it out what it was all about. It was a private event by Maybank and they did it at Godiva.


Then I told myself "Hey, I am Maybank customer, why am I not invited for this event". Probably they did but I was too busy to noticed it. Hahaha. I already ordered one for myself through online. Yeah I wanted this baby too. The iPad2. Since Malaysia always seem to be low in shortage, I had to order it online.


It already 745pm and the queue is still long but not as long as earlier. I decided to approach the counter and asked what it was about. The lady just inform me I can still buy it if I am a Maybank credit card holder. Sweet! I just straight away took out my card and register for it. The next thing I know I was given my invoice for my iPad already


The best part for it is I don't have to line up. I was told to just come back before the event end. How cool was that? No queue. True enough when I came back all I need to do is just pay for it.


Maybank and in calibration with epicentre Pavilion offered some door gift as well. It came with a free screen protector, RM20 cash voucher for purchase at epicentre, RM88 iPad training and epicentre membership which give 10% discount on 3rd party product. Oh ya, I forgot to mention about the free drinks and chocolates too served by Godiva.


I have my iPad. I've done the screen protector (free service by epicentre) and I used up the RM20 voucher to buy the iPad casing.


Everything is complete.

P/S: I cancelled the online purchase immediately after. For info, your credit card will be still be charged for a merchant fee regardless even if the amount is charge in RM when you purchase apple online. The charges are from the bank and not apple. Such a rip off.

Wee wee Ouchy

This is really a stupid accident which I should blame myself. Well basically there I was trying to pee in one of the stall. As a guy, I can say we don't normally take down the pant when we going to pee right? Or it just me. So, I just use the zipper instead.

Somehow I accidentally let go my underwear causing it to disturb the pee flow totally. It ended up forcing the pee to back pressure. I can tell you it hurt like hell and I was really trying hard to make the pee flow normally back.

At the end of the pee, I noticed that there are blood dripping. Shit. Definitely not good at all. I am pretty sure the blood came from the urethra as there is a burning sensation.

As for now, the pain seem to spread to the ureter. I think I should monitor the pain level and probably going to the doctor if it does not subside. There is no more blood visual. Just pain. Pure pain.

Don't Ask For It

I have this problem where I don't really like when people asking me to buy stuff or sponsor something. Normally I would just pay for it. I just don't like people asking as for me it seem like a demand not a request.

So basically, if people were to ask from me I will definitely say no. Politely of course. Usually I have no problem paying or sponsor. I prefer to do it willingly.

Oddly me.

EON Visa Signature


Just after I received my new Visa Signature card from CIMB, my EON card also suit after. It is also an upgrade from my previous Visa Platinum card. The application process is just like applying the normal credit card. However, since it is an upgrade, all the information is based on old credit and it does not account as new credit card. The differences are the card number and of course the card. 


The minimum annual salary for applying this card is RM180000. I actually didn't know about it and just simply apply. My salary is way way way lower than that. Good thing they approved it. Yeay!

There is one extremely good privilege which made me apply for it. The down part of this card is the annual fee can only be waived if you spend RM30000 per year. I am not that rich to spend to much of that amount. So I just going to see what I can do about it after the one year waiver is finish.


The credit limit given is lower compare to CIMB but I am not complaining since I won't be needing it.

There are a lot of privileges for this card. More info can also be found here.

1. ‘FREE For Life’ - Principal Cardholder(s) will receive an annual fee waiver for the first year, while annual fee for subsequent year(s) will be waived with a minimum cumulative spend of RM30,000 per annum. (Trick statement. RM600/year if you didn't manage to reach its minimum)

2. 1% Cash Rebate - Rebate is capped at RM500 per account with a cumulative overseas retail spend of RM10,000 per annum. (Good promotion)

3. DOUBLE Bonus Plus Points - 2 Bonus Plus Points when you spend abroad and 1.5 Bonus Plus Points when you spend locally. (Still lower compare to Maybank)

4. Complimentary Priority Pass Membership - Room to work and space to breathe can be hard to find on a busy schedule. That's why a VIP lounge has everything you need to relax-even you're working. (The one thing I love the most about this card since I travel a lot)

5. Year-End Account Summary. (I don't really monitor my spending)

6. “Privileges for Life” Programme. (Great offer but limited)

7. 100% Cash Advance. (T&C applies to it actually)

8. Share Trading Rewards. (Huh?)

9. Will Writing Services. (I use other service since this one is quite expensive)

10. Travel & Protection Benefits. (Great benefits)

11. FREE Travel Accident and Inconvenience Coverage - For every business trip or holiday with your family and loved ones, rest assured that you are protected by our FREE Travel Accident and Inconvenience Coverage of up to RM2,000,000. Remember to charge your travel purchases to your EON Bank Visa Signature Credit Card and you will automatically be protected from any flight delays, luggage lost or missed connections which extends to your spouse and children below 23 years of age. (Touch wood won't be needing it)

12. Visa Signature Privileges. (Still limited offer given from bank)

13. Visa Signature Concierge Service. (Same as any other Visa Signature)

14. 3-D Secure Online Payment. (Standard privilege)

15. Internet Banking. (Standard privilege)

Review: Etihad Airways


Date: 19th April 2011
Sector: Abu Dhabi (AUH) - Kuala Lumpur (KUL)

Etihad Airways is the national carrier for Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. It's main based is at Abu Dhabi International Airport and currently serves more than 1000 flight per week.

Check-In


There is a dedicated terminal for Etihad and check-in was easy with ample of counters open. You would have the option of checking in over the kiosk also.

Departure Hall


The departure hall is a little bit unique. If you still have ample of time before your departure time, I would suggest that you hang out at the duty free area until your boarding time. The gates are located far apart from any duty free shop. So it is really not advisable to go straight to the gate.

Aircraft


Once on board, you will be provided with a nice simple amenities bag.

The aircraft used is A330-300 and it is maintained in such way that everything look new. The seat will slide together when when you recline making it feel like a partial bed. So you would feel a little comfortable while sleeping.

Cabin Crew


The crew are nice and cheery. They are very efficient in doing their job. They really fun to chat with. Since it was a long flight, I had so much fun hanging out with them.

In-flight Entertainment


Every seats are fitted with 10.4 inch touch screen personal IFE system which named E-BOX. Personally, I would say it really awesome as I am never bored while on board. So many movie, music and games to choose from. Plus, they even have exterior view camera for you to watch the lower and front view of the aircraft. The headset is noise free headset.

Meal


I learned that the meal service is based on UAE time. Which mean, if you departed night from your origin and the time in UAE are morning, breakfast will be served for you. The good time will always be lunch and dinner meals as full service will be provided. Main course + dessert + tea/coffee. For my flight, breakfast was served.

Overall Rating

Check-in 5/5
Departure Hall 4/5
Aircraft 5/5
Cabin Crew 5/5
In-flight Entertainment 5/5
Meal 4/5

CIMB Visa Signature


I was upgrading my Visa Platinum card to the new Visa Signature from CIMB. The offer seem to be much better compare to Platinum and the privileged status is only one step lower from the Visa Infinite. (To find out more about Visa cards - click here)


The easiest way for me to apply is via the card centre which available at few places around the Klang Valley. I went to Pavilion as it is more convenient for me. The good thing about applying for Visa Signature and above is the one hour approval and issue of the card. I didn't believe it in the first place. Thus the reason of me trying. It is confirmed by me to be extremely true. All you need is your latest salary slip and IC and you are done. However, the application must be made before 4:30 pm.

The centre do feel a little prestige with the Customer Service Executive attend to you promptly and attentively. The service were excellent. I asked a lot of questions and she keep walking around (not once but couple of times) looking for brochure that would help me with the answer. I was so not use to such assistance until I joined helping her too which she kept insisting me to sit and let her do all the work. Such great service.


So an hour later, I received my new CIMB Visa Signature and also the door gift of leather picture frame by Kaufmann. The minimum credit limit is RM50000. The credit limit given to me is slightly higher. (I also don't know what to do with it)  

So what so good about it? Well it is a lot better from Visa Platinum to start with. I am just going to give the offers given from CIMB at this time. More info - click here.

1. No Annual Fee - Waiver for you and up to 3 Supplimentary cards. (Great!)

2. 2X Bonus Points For Overseas Spending - Fast-track your Bonus Points accumulation for every RM1 charged on your CIMB Visa Signature Card for overseas retail spending. (This would be alright if I can't use my American Express card)

3. Complimentary Airport Lounge Access - Enjoy complimentary access to Plaza Premium Lounge 2 times a year, automatically renewed annually if your total spending Is RM100,000 or more per annum. (EON Visa Signature offer better)

4. Dedicated CIMB Travel Desk - Enjoy exclusive travel deals and arrangements from hotels to flights reservations or personalised tour packages by a team of travel professionals at CIMB Travel Desk.

5. Complimentary Movie Ticket - Enjoy a complimentary movie ticket of the same class - Gold, Premiere, or Normal Class, with any purchase of movie tickets with your CIMB Visa Signature card at any Golden Screen Cinemas nationwide. (Utilizing it every single time I am out for movies)

6. CIMB Premier Club Rewards - Enjoy privileged savings when you use your CIMB Visa Signature at any of our participating merchants. (They really give great discounts to card holder)

7. CIMB Bank Smart Rewards - Enjoy year-long discounts at over 500 dining, retail and lifestyle outlets bringing you privileges and benefits wherever you go. (Additional discount given compare to other cards)

8. 1-Hour Card Issuance - Enjoy the convenience of applying for a new CIMB Bank credit card or supplementary card in one hour, plus discover the many services available at our well-appointed Card Service Centres. (Proven true)

9. CIMB Visa Signature Hotelclub - Enjoy a complimentary one-night stay at featured hotels, with discounts up to 75% on 55,000 hotels worldwide with a click of a button. (The deals are good and more compare to Platinum)

10. Enjoy More Visa Signature Exclusive Benefits - Take advantage of exclusive privileges for travel, shopping, and golfing, for your enjoyment of the privileged lifestyle. (Tailored for Visa Signature card holders)

Plus, the card is simple but look very prestige.

So upon getting my new card, I decided to cancel the old Visa Platinum I had. Our conversation turn out to be funny as I wanted to keep the old card for my collection. This is how it goes (in Malay/English language mixed):

Me: Saya nak cancel the Platinum card since dah ada Signature. The Mastercard can still be used as back up kan?

CS: Yup. Ada bawa kad tak?

Me: Kena return ker? Sebab saya nak simpan.

CS: Ikut procedure memang kena return balik.

Me: Kalau macam tue, saya tak bawa lah.

CS: Suka hati lah.

Me: Hahahaha...
