No wonder A (H1N1) cases are on the rise

I WAS made to understand, through media reports, that health screening has been put in place at all entry points into the country. To my disappointment, this is not true!

Last Sunday, my colleagues and I returned from Singapore via the Second Link. At the Tuas checkpoint, we cleared Immigration and Customs. However, there was no health screening on the thousands who entered Malaysia via the checkpoint.

This was in total contrast with what we experienced when we entered Singapore. The authorities there did their parts right.

The Malaysian authorities need to buck up or we will be faced with more people coming down with the A (H1N1) influenza.

Make a checklist, check whether this medicine is in your home or whether it has been recommended by your doctor... please DO NOT use it...


India has become a dumping ground for banned drugs; also the business for production of banned drugs is booming. Plz make sure that u buy drugs ! only if prescribed by a doctor(Also, ask which company manufactures it, this would help to ensure that u get what is prescribed at the Drug Store) and that also from a reputed drug store. Not many people know about these banned drugs and consume them causing a lot of damage to themselves. We forward Jokes and other junk all the time. This is far more important.

Please Make sure u forward it everyone u know.

Edison Chen at Malaysia?

It was reported that Edison Chen is opening his clothing store called JUICE at Bangsar? Of all the country, why he chooses Malaysia?

Prune Juice

Such a huge difference..

RM12.40 at Everise Padungan
RM10.90 at Choice Daily Stutong

Dear Mr price control officer?

KWF aka Kuching Waterfront

Do you think that the KWF is safe? Saw that they have this big banner "Ke arah tebingan sungai yang aman dan bersih"... Do you think that they should put on video cam instead of relying the occasional patrol of security guard..

Do you think that KWF is a beautiful place? I think yes. But do you feel that they should give more car parks for encourage more visitors?

Police Traffic Summon - Lesson Learnt

1. Warning! do not make illegal U-Turn at the junction connecting KPJ to the nearby roundabout.

2. Police Traffic is a human and therefore, you should forgive them if they are not communicating or telling you the false information. Snippets of the conversation this morning after the offence: -

Me: OK how much is the fine.

Mr Police: RM100

Me: Can I plead for some discounts - this is my first offence. I never been here before, therefore didnt notice the sign. *you may think it's lame*

Mr Police: Yes, they give you 50% for that.

Alright.. got to settle the fine.. Saw that they will compound the fee if you don't pay within a month. thought that it is just RM50. Went to Simpang Tiga Police Traffic counter.. Its about 12.30noon. I was told by a person in police suit from the other room that I need to come back at 2pm as they are having break. I decide to try my luck.. went into the counter .. Saw a man coming out.. So it is not locked for lunch break.. So, Went inside... There's still people working... Thank God.

Me: Hi.. Wan to settle this summon.. is there any discount..?

Cashier: *typing.... lots of typing - tap! tap! tap!"After discounts -RM100.

Me: What? I was told by the police that it's RM50.

Cashier: The police traffic do not have computer with them therefore they don't know about the amounts well.

:p.. At first i thought it was me who heard wrongly, but my sister also confirmed that the police is saying that! I have 1 month to settle RM100 or else.. I will not have any discounts..

Do you think that the police should consider to let go people who have committed offence the first time? And it was definitely not obvious - the no u-turn signboard.. and there is huge space for car to make u-turn conveniently..

Do you think that is Ok for them to force motorists to make way for the VVIP to pass through? What will happen if this cause other motorist to collide with one another... Who's fault is this?

DIY - Cure yourself..

I got to know this good stuff via earthclinic. It is a very resourceful website.
This thing here is actually good for: killing germs and bacteria, helping digestion and suppose to cure constipation as well. It didn't work out for my bowel movement, but other than that it is a treasure to everyone. Just not sure if gastric patient can tolerate with this acidic drink. But it has help to stop escalation of mild cough and cold for me several times.
It is good to take this diluted solution before gym and before/after meal to increase your metabolism.
If you are worried about your teeth, it is advised to take the diluted solution with a straw.
FYI, i bought this at Cold Storage @ Kuching. Cost less than RM20.

Wet Tissues

Wet tissue is a very convenient thing to have. I personally think that it is a must for mothers.

Usually I preferred Pureen brand wet tissue. It is not only cheap but the quality is good too. But this time, the place where i went to (Tabuan's Smart Supermarket), surprisingly, does not sell other brands except this Johnson's baby - fresh cleansing wipes.
I always give Johnson's brand a thumbs up in most their products. Except for this one. This is the last time I am going to buy this. Reason being, the partially peel back sealing sticker does not stick back after sometimes. As the result, all the wet tissues become dried up. They should improve on this one.. Other than that, it is satisfactory for me. I am trying to salvage this last packet by affix some cellotapes on the sticker.

Hot Hot Hot!!!

Before you consider signing the next new job acceptance letter...

This is my fifth job. I think I am fit to give some advice to those who are considering for a new post in a new company. Before considering that job switch, have you consider the following risks?

1. Company is about to close-shop. This is the worst case scenario.
2. Company is about to retrench. You may not get your confirmation. They can terminate you almost immediately giving no obligation to pay any considerate compensation.
3. Company is enforcing force leave. You will never get the figure promised in the job appointment. They are deducting your pay..
4. You may work very late, more responsibilities than your previous job. Are u willing to take it?
5. Office politics.. no helpful hands.. You've got to find your way to survive.
6. If you aim for a pay raise or promotions.. it's going to take you years to show the others your capability.. Most "dinosaurs" in the company are dominating the higher post.. Unless you really shines from th rest..
7. Basically, to start all over, with all the potential unexpected risks, in a brand new working environment.

Prepare for the worst case scenario.

Avoid Silly Mistakes

Inspired by the article which is meant for students who will be sitting for exam ( Found it applicable to work as well...

Think & Analyse
Go easy
Take a deep breath

You're are on your way to avoid silly mistakes..

Stop rushing

"Focus on one thing at a time. This age of technology has us multitasking, which has depleted the quality of our attention. We can be checking our emails while on the phone and texting from our blackberry while browsing facebook all at once! Take the habit of doing one thing at a time, and take your time doing that one thing. You will see the quality of your work and your creativity soar.
I feel that life is much more pleasant when you take the time to appreciate each and every moment of it. Life is not the 100 meter dash. It’s a marathon. Therefore, you can’t sprint through it. You have to pace yourself, breathe properly, focus, have patience, and take your time. There’s a long way to go, and you don’t want to run out of breath midway "


"Stop rushing
If it is neither necessary nor effective, make an active effort to change that habit. Identify exactly how you can slow down. In my case, I simply practice strolling or walking slowly. It’s never easy to break a habit but it is well worth it to your mental and physical health to spend the time and energy breaking these habits of rushing around.
Mental Rushing
Mentally you need to restrict your thoughts. If you mind is constantly overrun with anxious thoughts of things to be done, practice scheduling a time to think about those things. And refuse to allow yourself to think about them at any other time. Particularly if your thoughts are obsessive rather than constructive.Obsessive thoughts are those that merely go over and over the task again and again, serving no useful purpose except to remind yourself of it. Constructive thoughts are those that generally seek a solution."

Fwd: Precautionary mail. Read it!

Hi friends, do read the message. What a sick and nasty world it has become.

(Pls read this mail) FROM Arvind Khamitkar , I.A.S, Director of Medical & Research Div, Chennai
Dear Friends,
A few weeks ago, in a movie theatre, a person felt something poking from her seat. When she got up to see what it was, she found a needle sticking out of the seat with a note attached saying "You have just been infected by HIV".
The Disease Control Center (in Paris ) reports many similar events in many other cities recently. All tested needles were HI V Positive.
The Center also reports that needles have been found in cash dispensers at public banking machines. We ask everyone to use extreme caution when faced with this kind of situation. All public chairs/seats should be inspected with vigilance and caution before use. A careful visual inspection should be enough. In addition, they ask that each of you pass this message along to all members of your family and your friends of the potential danger.

Recently, one doctor has narrated a somewhat similar instance that happened to one of his patients at the Priya Cinema in Delhi . A young girl, engaged and about to be married in a couple of months, was pricked while the movie was going on. The tag with the needle had the message
"Welcome to the World of HIV family".
Though the doctors told her family that it takes about 6 months before the virus grows strong enough to start damaging the system and a healthy victim could survive about 5-6 years, the girl died in 4 months, perhaps more because of the "Shock thought". We all have to be careful at public places, rest God help! Just think about saving a life by forwarding this message. Please, take a few seconds of your time to pass along.
With Regards, Arvind Khamitkar , I.A.S, Director of Medical & Research Div, Chennai.
Rather than forwarding irrelevant mails, kindly pass this to every one. Probably ur mail can help to save his/her life

Your life is God's gift to you.
What you do for others is your gift to God"

Fwd: Why I like to read British news...

Fwd: FW: The Top 17 SCAMS in Malaysia

1. The Cafe Scams - Island Red Cafe & Stevens Corner

(strange, both in Pandan Indah) - Island Red Cafe collects members RM6,000 each and promised 5% return every month and even give you a name in the ROC as a shareholder but what's the point when they run away? Stevens Corner, the famous indian coffee shop follows due to drop of business since their renovation. They collect RM3,000 per member and promise return of RM150 monthly and plans to open nice fanchisee cafe called StevensTeaGarden. Someone mentioned they will make you sign an agreement that give them the rights NOT to pay you anything in future. If you really wish to join, ask for a copy of their agreement and consult your lawyer BEFORE paying them. Bet you will NOT get a copy. Both collect monies from new members with MLM recruitment schemes and pay the old members like Sunshine Empire. You never know when they will run away.

2. Sunshine Empire
This licensed and legal Company has an impressive office at the ground level of KUB building along Jalan Yap Kwan Seng, near Menara Public Bank and AmBank Building . They also have a showroom office at the ground level in the next building. 3 or 4 months ago, Singapore's Straits Times and The Paper published big news reminding their people to be careful and NOT to believe in them. Hope someone can put up the link or
> google for it.(As expected, they STOPPED paying back members now and all investors LOST their money).

Someone below has put a link to the Singapore news. In fact there are more to it. Although Singapore is investigating them, they did not stop their business as the business is legal and so far, no Singaporean have failed to receive their commissions as promised. Thus, the government cannot stop them yet. The news published that the founder, director and group president is someone named James Phang but he is NOT the owner. Isn't this quite strange ? At the end of the game, James Phang can just disappear from the Company easily and claimed that he was just "employed". Such trick always happened in scam businesses. Now, the Company has STOPPED paying commissions and interests to members with the excuse that the Singapore government has freezed their bank account while under investigation. Do you think their boss will be so stupid to keep much monies in the bank to be freezed? They are all transfered away. It's just an excuses not to
> pay back to members and members are only paid "e-bonus-points" which is cashless. If they wish to
> convert to cash, they have to recruit new members to pay them cash and the recruiter less out trom the amount. So victims act like Vampires and "forced" to victimise other victims if they wish to get their monies back. And their victims will later transform to vampires and the scam carries on…..

3. MobilWallet
This Company owned by 2 young men, Stanley & Rey Gan, office in Queens Avenue Park has collect multi-millions the last 2 years. Claimed that they tied up with Telekoms, Utility Board payment like Water & Electricity bills, even Maybank got fooled by them. Advertisement Billboards everywhere. They STOPPED paying back their members few months ago and the members cannot do anything because they are made to sign an agreement unaware that they have to claims if the company stopped paying them by CHANGING terms and policies.

4. Water Business - Oxygenated and Alkaline Water Products
Some of these are bottled water and some are filters or equipment that claimed the trick..
One of the better known Company that sold "oxygen" water is SITO (supposed to stand for Selangor International Trading Organiszation and claimed Selangor State Government owned some share in it). The key person and founder is a Dato Robert Ong from Rawang but his name is no longer in the business now. Their products are sold for RM2 to RM3 for a 350ml bottle and now concentrating mostly in the Indian market. Their Chinese and Malays market are long gone since a year or 2 ago. Their customers are made to believe that their water has more oxygen and able to give miraculous effects for the body. Water is H2O, how to put more O into it ? Anyone knows how much oxygen do we breathe into our body everyday at FOC ? Latest news is that this SITO Company is going to create new label to market under a new Company since the SITO name has already gone bad. Someone informed that this Company is owing alot of money(due to refunds) to ex-stockists but just refuse to pay them. (Latest news, SITO shifted to another place and their MLM business has closed but planning to start again with a different name, beware!!)

Alkaline Products - Can anyone explain how it can work for the body ? The stomach's gastric liquid is so acidic that water of any pH that goes through it will not make any difference.

5. Car Fuel Booster - K-Link
K-Link, the famous scam MLM Company that sold the footpatch TAKARA, later the "cock-ring" and energy-card launched the patrol-saving pills last year. Got so hot that even grocery shops are selling for them. Recently many of these cars that used the pills are rushing to the workshops to clean the residual. Few months ago, another MLM Company launched a fuel booster gadget, claimed that saves up to 20% fuel, that is attached to the cigarette lighter. Started off well using binary plan but businese begin to fade now and most users find it NOT effective.

6. Perfumery Products
(eg. Lampe Berger & Bel Air)(more details later). Lampe Berger is not so hot now in the neighbouring countries but there are still new victims every month in Malaysia . Must thanks to those who have contributed and kept the thread alive here in Kopitiam. Bel-Air have closed in Malaysia . LB is almost zero in Singapore . This perfumery product from France with over 100 years history is just bottles and fragrance (check the factory's website) but the Company marketing them in Asia claimed "aromatheraphy" products. Hong Kong TVB aired a program that exposed their scam but their members claimed that HK's TVB already apologised to them. Note that the biggest strenght in a MLM Scam is their members will go all way out to lie in order to defend for their Company. The reason is simple; these members fear that they will not be able to make their money back if the Company collapsed. Knowing that the Lampe Berger products are moving slow, they add a line of skincare products named Estebel, also claime to have over 100 years history in France. (Hardly anymore Chinese newcomers, they are now tapping the Malays in Malaysia.)

7. Energy Products
(eg. stone pendants, bracelets, mattress and pillows). They use all sorts of gimmicks and demonstration to make you into believing them. They will do some tricks and demo to prove that these products really produce energy BUT is there any tricks in their demo? So what if there really produce energy; is it good or strong enough to help the body? The effect is actually PLACEBO which I will elaborate in a new thread soon. (More details later.)

8. Hi-Tech Products
Names like bio-tech, nano-tech that claimed millions of dollars of research involved, eg Bio-Young and XKL few years ago. Most of these will claimed a professor behind them (even with name and picture of a person) or used words like "U.S.A. formula", "German Technology" or "Nanotechnology" and no further details (more details later). If you ask for more details like the professor or factory's address, the answer will be "trade secrets".

9. Investment Schemes
SWISSCASH is the King of all. Swisscash is nearly over now but there are many similar and smaller ones that are still on. (Now, it's closed or stopped paying back members.)

10. GoldQuest
This Company that claimed to be HK-based started with some non-value gold-plated coins that are sold for over RM2,000 have several names and changed products several times. QuestVacation, QuestNet, etc. They have several offices in Amcorp Mall, PJ and their key person (in fact, the owner), a Malaysian Indian was arrested last year in Indonesia for having involved in a very big Phillipines scam. Most of their overseas offices are closed or inactive but their Malaysia business is still hot, with some "energy" products. (Can someone please provide a link which showed the news that their boss was involved in a big scam in Philippines and was arrested in last year?)

11. Numerogy & Fortune Telling
A Company named Visible is using MLM to sell fortune telling classes using your birthday based on numerology fortune telling. Prospects will be told that they need to buy a certain "number" between 1 to 9 in the form of pendants or bracelets made of stainless steel and sold from RM600 to RM20,000. Customers, or rather victims are mostly females from rural areas. Very hot in Penang now and a number of spin-off Companies have started.

12. MJ - Life
MJ-Life - This Company boost of a very big background with many many years of history which is NOT true. Their people or associates may be long in business but nothing to do with their MLM launched recently. Why do I consider it a scam or bad? New members are told to pay a sum of money (up to RM1000) and you get NOTHING for it. You only get a membership can entitle you to enjoy all sorts of special price and discounts when you have medical check-ups in their centres.. They will claim all those check-ups cost more if done elsewhere. It's not true. Only the naive and those new to medical check-ups will fall victims to them. Most members who paid the money ended up with nothing.

13. Seaweed Venture Scams
1 such Company is located in Taman Maluri, Cheras. They will ask you to invest a few thousands ringgits for their venture of growing seaweeds in East Malaysia and you are guaranteed returns. To gain your confidence further, they will tell you your investment money is secured by "insurance" or "unit trusts" & "trustees". When you ask for further documents to prove, they will give all sorts of excuses or just ignore you because they know they cannot get you. These Seaweed scam is one of the hottest now, warn all your friends about it before they are victimised.

14. MXM (Previously MGM)
This is a master scam among the younger group, very successful 2 or 3 years ago but since there moved to their big 10-storey office at Phileo Damansara and changed name to MXM, their business dropped. They collect members RM3,000 to RM4,000 with credit card monthly easy payment and in return you get a hospital benefits insurance from Pacific Insurance worth only a few hundred RMs together with some you-don't-need medical check-ups from their associate Company Pathlab. Also talk about fitness, lifestyles bullshit that is all worthless.

15. Gano Excel
This company from the north, a copycat of DXN selling Lingzhi capsules created a new Company called Gano iTouch to cash-in on the internet like e-Cosway after their Company went down the drain since the last 2 years, selling Linzhi and some no-value energy pendants and alkaline water gadgets. They provide free transport every weekend from KL to visit their Alor Star office.

16. NuLife (HK)
This Company started by some HK people has been in Malaysia for more than 10 years but they have flopped in HK and Malaysia due to bad management and a product scam making use of a prosecuted American named Dr Jeffrey Bland, found guilty of false products claim. Since this case in the US leaked out and many Malaysians found out that the real boss in HK is a Steven Tang (he cheated many Malaysians in another scheme about 20 years ago) their business went down all the way. Now they claim Malaysian partners cheated them and start a new Company in Malaysia . Watch out, this new Company will come out with some investment scheme idea that will get many to lose their money.

17. Arowana Fish Breeding
Oora from Germany , Biofuel (Kompleks Maluri) etc - These are some newer scams. Arowana fish venture ask you to invest some money and give you fixed return. Biofuel will tell you their Indonesia connections (just like Sunshine Empire before using Taiwan) & Oora from Germany(I never trust those cruel Germans) that market some bio-chips and a gadget that claims to give energy and therapeutic effects of accupunture, tai-chi, yoga, etc depending how you set the toy-like gadget, wear it on your body and you get the effect later.
They could not explain or provide any demonstration to prove their effectiveness. Only doctors and papers claim that I will never trust. The health effect is actually PLACEBO, which I will elaborate in a different thread.

Lastly but not least, thank you for reading to the end and I hope you can come back for more details and updates or help to contribute for me to update.

I hope to receive information of any scams so that I can share them here to protect others. Although most of those above-mentioned are marketed through direct-selling or MLM schemes, I will soon add non-MLM scams. Please contribute.

If you wish to send me any new information confidentially, you may email them to me at:

Good Luck..

Even when we screw up the environment in the pursuit of easy and quick wealth we eventually pay for it when Tsunamis, landslides, and so on, hit us and bury us in our sleep. Sometimes, we who perpetuate the crime do not suffer the retribution. Sometimes others are the victims while we escape punishment. But those who get punished are not really that innocent. When we stand by and do nothing about what others do to the environment we are as guilty as those who are directly responsible. So we pay the price of the folly of others. - (RPK, 24Jan09)

Document down the links I used for making my blog searchable...

"How to be your own therapist"

This is a masterpiece by Pat Farell (2003).
I got this from the Sarawak Pustaka Library...
There are 10 tools : -

1. Challlenge & Change
2. Open Your eyes & face Reality
3. Make lots of Mistakes
4. Quit whining
5. Act like the person you want to be
6. Accept yourself, warts & All
7. Fire your parents
8. Challenge Authority
9. Stick up for yourself
10. Live Dangerously

Some interesting points that i'd like to remember...: -

1. Self-therapy is about getting what you want from your life. (p.38)
2. There is never a reason for you to feel self-loathing, and if you do, there's something you need to change about your belief and behaviors (p.51)
4. Being wrong won't kill you - and it may make you smarter (p.63)
5. Mistakes are the usual bridge between inexperience and wisdom (Phyllis Theroux p.68)
6. Whining may result in temporary victory (p. 97).
7. No one likes to listen to a child whine, and the resulting annoyance is only multiplied when it's coming from an adult. The cost to you is a decrease in liking ,respect, and admiration from those around you; when others see behaviour in you that does not fit your age, your role, and/or your abililties, they thend ot respond with annyoance. ... you're powerless... Whining is built upon the fallacy that you want to be rescued(p.98-9)
8. In order to succeed at quitting whining, you need to develop a set of replacement skills, and these will be in the realm of communication. The most important skill you can develop is to ask yourself (and then answer) this brief series of questions when you feel a whine coming on (p. 109)
