Western Digital To Close or To Re-Open?

Image
Read news about Western Digital might not be close. All the staff, somehow might get employed and not un-employed once again. If WD stays open, no compensation will be given. If WD closed, then the company will pay for the compensation.

For me, this is very unfair for the employees. Being employed is of course a good thing. But the employee had been told before about the compensation. Furthermore, even if WD stays open, it is not call WD anymore but another name which is still a secret. So why no compensation? Well, this is my personal point of view.

Some of them, I believe had planned what to do with the compensation money (business, joint-venture, etc etc). Some might already wait for the money to pay as down payment as a start of new life. And now, suddenly, the compensation is on hold until confirmation of to close or stays open.

Prevent Dengue, Fight Dengue

Image
Although dengue cases in Sarawak is not in critical stage, I still thinks it's wise to take a precaution. Receive a junk mail from a friend about setting up a mosquitoes trap in preventing mosquitoes breed all around our houses and increase the dengue disease all over us. It is so simple! All we need is brown sugar and yeast.

So here it goes....... It's worth to give it a trial!Cut a plastic bottles into half and keep both parts.Take the lower portion of the bottle, dissolve the brown sugar in hot water. Let it cool down to ~70degFAdd the yeast. CO2 will form which indirectly attracts the mosquitoes.Cover the bottle with a dark wrapping and place the top portion upside down like a funnel. Place it in a corner in your house.In 2 weeks, you will be surprised by the number of mosquitoes killed.

Buffered Earning in Nuffnang

Been haunting with curiousity for days on the meaning of buffered earning, I did a little bit of research.

For those who is as curious as me, I think you must be wondering what is that. Well, when I go through it, it turns out to be another way where you can earn from Nuffnang, that is, via MCPM (metered CMP) campaigns earning. It is actually means an existing advertiser would buy a set of unique visitors from my blog in which their advertisement would be publish into my blog for a period of time. The earning is categorized as buffered earning until the time ends. After that, all the earning during this period will be credited into my current earning.

WOW!! Does this means someone actually bought to place their ads on my blog? Cool!!! I love the sound of it. Anyone had any idea of other earning ways? As for advertiser, I'm cool with Nuffnang & Adsense.. yeah...

The Meaning of Ash Wednesday

Yesterday, while mail chatting with a friend, we talk about Ash Wednesday. Yeah, as we are to take force leave 4 days per month, I had choose to take leave on ash Wednesday.

The truth, being a Christian for 26 years, I never know what is the meaning of ash Wednesday. Hahahaha...!! My friend, who is also same as me, trying to guess what is ash Wednesday. Here is what her opinion - "ash wednesday is something about when die, we return back to ash?"

I guess the question of what is Ash Wednesday is haunting her. So, after that, she google for the meaning and got it in Wikipedia. I think maybe there are a lot of Christian out there who is like me, doesn't know what it meant... So, I'll just share the meaning here... Thanks to CK (not CK in my company,ok) for the findings in Wiki....

"In the Western Christian calendar, Ash Wednesday is the first day of Lent and occurs forty-six days before Easter. It falls on a different date each year, because it is dependent on the dat…

Closing Adsense, Reopen Adsense - All For The Sake of Payee Name

What I do today? Some of you might realize that my adsense is gone from the blog. Well, it's because I had to close my account in adsense just because of I need to change Payee Name!!! Hhmmppffff....

All for my own stupidity that I just put the payee name as the first two name as per my I.C ignoring my chinese name. I seldom use my chinese name and I don't know that it is so important for cheques. Huhuhu....

Since I'm living in the multi culture country that makes the adsense edit button on payee name not visible, I had to use the old fashion ways of doing the whole thing:
1. Complete the cancellation form.
2. We will close your current account.
3. When you receive notification that your account has been closed, submit a new application using your new payee name.
4. Once your application is approved, replace the existing ad code on your pages with code generated from your new account.

All this for the sake of changing my payee name!!! Can anyone tell me what will happen to my exi…

WHAT TO DO IF STOPPED BY MALAYSIAN POLICE

This is is very useful information. Please pass it on to your friends and family.............especially the women folk!

The next time you are stopped by persons who claimed they are plain clothes police, you are under no obligation to answer their questions or follow their orders, lawyers told Malaysiakini today.

'Policeman who is not wearing his uniform does not have the authority to stop anyone,' lawyer and human rights activist Sivarasa Rasiah said.
Procedures to follow in the event you are stopped by uniformed police Officers while driving:

1. Stop the car and wind down your window.
2. If the police officers ask for your documents, request to see their
IDs first.
3. If you are satisfied about their identity, ask them if you are being
summoned, and for what offence.
4. Produce your identity card and driver's license and wait to collect
your summon ticket.

In the event that the police officers ask you to follow them to the police station:

1. Ask if you are under arrest and for what…

Humor to Ease Everyone During Economy Crisis

Taken from forwarded emails...

In a large multinational company..............

A fire alarm rang at 4 PM in a large office when almost all employees were in office (approx 5000). As usual the entire office was evacuated within 3 mins & all employees gathered outside the office in the designated area waiting for further announcement.
The Security Officer in charge made the following announcement: "Dear employees - with sincere regret I have been asked to announce that for many of you it will be your last evacuation drill. Due to the recession the company is laying off almost 50% of its employees. So when this announcement finishes, I ask all of you to move back into the building and if your swipe card does not work then it means you have been laid off in which case you will not be allowed inside and all your belongings will be couriered to you by tomorrow.

The Company has used this innovative approach as we didn't want to fill up the email box with lay-off mails and good bye ma…
