Be careful: Hotlink unlimited FREE Calls during birthday and anniversary day

0 comments
"Start your birthday celebration with unlimited FREE calls as well as a surprise treat on the anniversary of the day you signed up with us."

Please note: This FREE voice calls is to any Maxis Nos. on the special days only. But, the problem is how you know whether your friends' phone number is Maxis number.

This is because nowadays people can change its phone service providers without changing their number. In other words, 012/017 is not necessary a Maxis number anymore. It can be any other providers such as Digi.

This is my experience during my birthday. Therefore, please ask your friends first before start a phone call next time to avoid any SURPRISE.

Investment: Stock Market Vs Business

1 comments
So, do you want your money works with you and help you earn more money? This sounds is good for everyone of us nowadays. "I want to have my own business in the future", "I want be my own boss", "I want quit my moron job", etc.
 
But, the problem is, are you ready to be your own boss? Are you sure you want to have your own business? And do you know how to launch a business?

In reality, to have your own business you need to have a team. A team which can provide lots of indispensable knowledge and skills in terms of law, regulation, customer service, production etc. If you do not have your own team, you may have a risk to be cheated by others who know more than you.

Funny Video From Youtude: Jail Rabbit

0 comments
Very interesting and funny video. Without any word to express all funny things. Thanks for the creators and people who share these funny and interesting video (Jail Rabbit) in Youtube.

But due to some technical problems that the people who upload these funny videos deleted them after sometimes.

Therefore, it is good idea to go to Youtube.com then search "Jail Rabbit" yourself. There are 38 series and about 1.30 minutes per series video.

Sorry for any inconvenience.

List of Scholarship for Malaysian students to Pursue Full-Time Degree Programmes

1 comments
At the time I was in University, I had no idea how to find a scholarship until I was graduated now... Although there were a lot of website stated about scholarship, how could you trust them when they never ever give you an official address or website related the scholarship? Therefore, I hope those early birds and taking initiative will finally gain their own "worm".

Indeed, nobody can stop you to pursue your higher education ambition except you give up yourself. Here you are. Abundant of financial supports from our social and community can help you achieve your dream. Read them carefully, and share them with who is needy.

megasavezz4.com: Spam Website - Redirects to fake scan in Firefox

0 comments
From http://www.malwareurl.com/, I found that www1.megasavezz4.com is a scam website which will redirects your webpage to a fake scan.This is very obviously because I am using Ubuntu Operation System (OS). In other words, the fake scanning displayed My computer window of Microsoft OS. So how does it possible?

Although the URL which was trying to attack my computer was www2.megasavezz4.com instead of www1.megasavezz4.com, both of them are doing a same thing (Redirects to fake scan).

If you still facing this kind of problem. Read the solution from firefox official website at http://support.mozilla.com/tiki-view_forum_thread.php?locale=pt-BR&comments_parentId=671833&forumId=1

Scholarship, Sponsorship, Education loan, in Malaysia

6 comments
Today, I received an email from my friend regarding scholarship in Malaysia. I have decided to put them (after some analysis) in my blog and hope this can help for needy students.

As a rule of thumb, please read carefully all the terms and conditions of scholarship after apply it. This is because you need to decide whether accept or reject when you have received the scholarship offer. But if you put much time to read them first, you may not be able to submit it before its due date.

Personally, I prefer scholarship without bond. If not, I will rather education loan. Nevertheless, it's up to you.

The lists of scholarships, sponsorship and education loan are shown below.
