Happy easter  

Posted by the Writer

Oh, what do you know? Easter is coming!
I'm not sure what's real about it now that a religious holiday has become something commercial and involves rabbits. C'mon, rabbits and Jesus? Who'da thought?
I guess the fun part is going to the Happy Easter store and stocking up on Easter stuff for your kids. Or nieces and nephews. May be an opportunity for you to become a favourite uncle or aunt.

Personalised gifts  

Posted by the Writer

Nowadays, it's really hard to get my friends birthday gifts. We've all started working which menas they can now afford whatever they wanted. Of course, we can always come together to buy them an iPad for their birthdays but really, if I had the money, I'd spend it on myself. This is where personalized mugs come in. It's cheap and it allows you to spend the surplus on your own iPad. The best part about these mugs is that you can write whatever you want on it. If it's for an adult, you can play with the words to say something dirty. That's the great thing about personalised gifts!

keywords are old school  

Posted by the Writer

If you needed advice on something, searching for them on the internet would be difficult if you used keywords. The best way would be to search for it in question format. This is because people are now asking questions in their searches and not just typing in keywords any more like they used to and websites are also being information friendly by using question forms. For example, if you're looking for an attorney in Tuscon, you may type, "where can i find a good attorney in tuscon", while the old school way is "attorney tucson". Neither one is better than the other, it's just what you're looking for. If you're looking for word of mouth referrals, then the question format will be appropriate. If you're just looking at the supply of attorneys in Tuscon, keywords will do.

Health care career  

Posted by the Writer

If you're a Malaysian health care graduate, jobstreet may be fine but wouldn't you rather work overseas than in Malaysia? Did you know, a health care career is pretty lucrative in the Middle East? With such a rich country, the rich are stuffing themselves silly with heart attack inducing foods and habits... and to be politically incorrect or downright rude, there's your pot of gold.

May not be such a good idea

I'll be heading out to an outward bound school in about 2 weeks and suddenly, a barska binocular looks like something fun to have when I have to solo-camp for a night in the freaking jungle! I don't suppose I could use it to star gaze, can I? But those things are really heavy, aren't they? Gotta pack light, you know?

Step stools  

Posted by the Writer

Number one: I didn't know there were such things as adult step stools. Number two: correction: okay, I just didn't know they were called that and realized the difference between adult step stools and kid step stools will probably be the height of the stools.
Boy, they cost a pretty penny but stools nowadays are being marketed as child-friendly stools. So, does that make you want to pay more for something that supposedly protects your child from him or herself?

Environmentally friendly products

Earth Hour is coming soon and of course, that's when millions and billions of people around the world come together to do something novel (read: hype). Some see it as an awareness exercise but it's effectiveness is questionable. What they should do is make green products widely available. For example, increase the availability of green cleaning supplies in supermarkets, ensure the prices are reasonable and that they actually work as well as conventional cleaners. Once we've got the adoption, it's like people are doing their part already!

Medical carts  

Posted by the Writer

Even after so many years, I'm still amazed at what you can find on the interwebs. They've got medical carts, people! Medical carts. That means any Tom, Dick and Harry and buy them off the internet if they have the dough. Speaking of medical carts, they're easily adjustable for hospital use so it looks like they could be suitable for daily laptop use, especially if you're planning on standing on your feet all day like Gina Trapani is doing.

Rustic Furniture

If you're in a city like Kuala Lumpur and have log furniture in your home, it's unusual. And it may not look right. Logs make the room look warmer and since it's already super warm in Malaysia, there's really no need for it, is there? But if you're in, say, Colorado or Canada, you know it'll work out. In fact, I think it'll look awfully cozy. On another hand, if you're running a beach-side hotel, it'll work too. I distinctly remember this hotel called Tanjung Rhu having something like that. It was beautiful and felt right because the rooms were air conditioned.

Learning  

Posted by the Writer

There is an insurance agency called Blue Cross Blue Shield (BCBS). The name's novel but what I really want to quickly highlight isn't so much about BCBS but more of insurance. No matter the agency or insurer, if you're at their website, take a moment to read about their products or just insurance in general. You'll always learn something.
You may apply for Blue Cross Blue Shield quotes online and be able to speak with an agent about your needs (North Carolina residents only).

Printers  

Posted by the Writer

Nowadays, it is not uncommon for computer retailers to include inkjet printers as free gifts in your computer purchase. However, those printers are usually cheap, entry level ones that tend to break down after a while. My household has already been through 4 of them in the past 6 years. Some may actually prefer to buy a new one. I say, go get it, get a better one. It's worth your money.

Making small changes for bigger returns  

Posted by the Writer

There's so much that goes into event planning. With every year, you want to do better than the last. It'll be difficult to make large changes so the best way is to make small ones. For example, you get complaints that trophies at an award ceremony are too light in weight and they do not feel substantial. So this year, you order a really heavy one and give the winner an extra trophy. Problem solved. True story.
So it's little things like this that could help boost favourability.

Pretty pretty glass tiles  

Posted by the Writer

Imagine if we were all well paid individuals, we could actually afford glass tiles for our homes, just because it looks awesome. Great for bathrooms and reception areas, all it's supposed to do it look good and it does a great job at that. You could even make a glass tile mural in your bathroom! Don't worry, you can afford an interior designer/artist for that. You're well paid, remember?

Super Sales People  

Posted by the Writer

If you thought sales jobs were pathetic, you are so wrong. I suppose for most people, when they hear "sales", the first thing that doesn't come to mind is the commission sales personnel receive. Instead, they go straight to the idea that sales personnel (who in their opinion) are only high school graduates, they didn't do well in school so they can't go to college, that sort of notions. But dude, they're some of the most persistent, and hardworking people out there. Go talk to one and see for yourself.

Pretty useless

Okay, seeing that this blog is pretty much a landfill of useless stuff, I thought I'd post up more useless stuff.
