Germany Trip

Business trip to Germany for machine buy-off in beginning of June. World Cup 2006 is just started when we (colleague and myself) are there but I guess we won't be able to watch any match due to the tight schedule. Only one 'free' day to go around...sigh... (even if we have time also I don't think so we can get any ticket :P).

Not so excited about the trip because lots of work to do. The worst part is we have to go for a factory visit at another vendor site on 9th June and it's 3 hrs drive from where we stay. The plan is vendor pick us up at 7am....3hrs drive to vendor's factory.....visiting.....demonstrating.....questioning.... eating ...... visiting.... eating....3hrs drive back at around 5pm. Definitely exhausted when we get back to the hotel.

There's no speed limit in Germany's highway and all cars is driving at 200~300km/hr speed. It will be a bit scary for us Malaysian cause our highway speed limit is merely 110km/hr.. pai seh!! But Germany's highway is so advance, no pothole and it is incline at certain degreee at the corner, it's definitely safe for high speed driving (but still a bit worry)

The thing worries me more is my wife is due soon (notice my new ticker!). Luckily I can get wife's brother to take care of her when I'm not around. I wanted to be there when my baby girl is born. So, baby please hang on until daddy coming back k!!

Singapore movie

Many people are watching the latest Singapore series 同心圆 that shows on Astro AEC recently. Suddenly I noticed there’s one similarity in the all time favorite Singapore films, which they are all related to the word ‘stupid, 笨’.

This is why I said so: For movie, the famous ‘粱婆婆’, ‘粱婆婆2’ and ‘小孩不笨’, first two movies come with the stupid character, second movie also with something to do with stupidity. Then we have former ‘荷兰村’, the main actress is 低智商. The famous comedy series ‘Phua Chu Kang’ too, he’s a bit crazy and stupid too. Then in this同心圆, the character 大洋 also is 弱智.

I seldom watch Singapore movies but I found this similarity out of the few that I’ve watched, Singaporean you got to be stupid in order to win…. 爱笨才会赢!!! Haha…

Sunday morning…

Sending my wife to work very early in the morning at 5:30am, before reach her office at the junction from the former Mint hotel towards Technology Park Malaysia, a few policemans were doing their 'duty' at that junction. I stopped there, and the officer asked …

Officer: Mana pergi?
Me: Kerja.
Officer: Mana kerja?
Me: TPM
Officer: Tunjuk lisen dan IC
Given all he requested, the officer can’t find anything to charge me then let us go. Luckily we obey strictly all rules; seat belt on, head lamp on, no illegal tinting, original exhaust pipe, valid road text and driver license. So it’s good to make it a habit to checked our driver license expiry date often, paying the fine for holding an expired driver license may cost you all the license fees. My advice, don’t leave any ‘hole’ for the police officer to bribe.

Proceed after the police inspection, reached wife’s office at a 6am. Drop her off, drove back KL to pay credit cards balance at Citibank, it is good to go Citibank at this hour because I have the chance to choose which deposit teller to use. Compare to go there in the midnight, no parking and you will have to queue up to half an hour just to make a payment, this already excluded those payments made through mail, online and cheque drop-in. That's is why Citibank can survive with just two branches in Malaysia because of its credit card popularity).

Drove home after making payment, bought a newspaper at 7-eleven and had my early breakfast (Teh Tarik and Roti Telur) at the Indian food stall. Not many people yet at 6:45am on Sunday morning. Browse through the paper and one new has catch my attention, tens of pigeon have died within a day in Bidor, Perak yesterday, this has cause the public fear, worried it might be the sign of another bird flu spread. And as usual, the respective government body action is always so slow. No sample was being send for testing yet! So lembap…

Back home after breakfast, did another morning routine job…… toilet :-P

Reading the newspaper while doing the ‘big’ job, suddenly 心血来潮 and start singing in the bathroom, to my surprise it sound good! The reason is because of the echo effect in my toilet. Ha! No wonder many people like to sing in the bathroom because of the Karaoke effect. Wondering if the echo effect idea is initiated from the bathroom….haha

Saturday …

Stay home whole day, lazy to go out. Make our own breakfast: sausage, shine-up egg, sweet corn and milk. At noon, prepared a simple lunch which is my wife favorite…. Or can say Teow Chew favorite…. porridge. Dump all ingredient (香菇, mix-vegetable, 干贝) into the porridge and add some soy sauce, fried some 江鱼仔, cut slices of seaweed into the cooked porridge and it’s done. Not bad for a light lunch.










Some of my own others cooking… fish in gravy sauce, steam fish, Japanese tofu, fried kai lan :P

Faulty Camara Repaired FOC

My dearest readers, if you still remember my posting of "Camera Faulty" in August '06. My 6th BIL has adviced me to complaint Fujifilm. I did that, luckily i'm from the manufacturing background. From my engineering experience, this problem is obviously manufacturing defects. I just told them if nothing can be done, I will make sure my friends and relatives don't buy Fujifilm camara again.

Then i got reply. 50% parts discount on parts:

>Our Sales division has referred your case to us.

Thank you for writing to us.

We are sorry to learn that your DSC is out of order.

We provide one year worldwide warranty for camera purchased. It is our standard policy to issue a quotation for over warranty case.

For manufacturing defect models, normally we shall recall those units via our official website announcement.

Taking into consideration that you seldom use your DSC, we would like to less 50% for parts. Which means RM280 less 50% = RM140 + RM 80 (Labour Charge) = RM 220

Please indicate to us if you accept this offer, we have to arrange the internal document. Keep this email as evidence when collect your camera.

Thank you for sharing your knowledge and view about semiconductor realiabilty with us.


Best Regards<


I don't agree to pay even half price for a faulty part, then i got second offer 50% parts discount, extended 6 months warranty to 9 months.

>Thank you for replying.

We are glad to inform you that we agree to extend another 6 months warranty for the CCD replacement if you accept to replace at proposed less 50% price.

Which means, original 3 months + extension 6 months = 9 months.

Please indicate to us if you agree with this proposal. Keep this email as evidence when collecting your DSC.

Best Regards,<



Still I don't accept, i'm asking for more discount:

>Thank you for replying.

You are willing to pay RM70(Parts) + RM80(Labour Charge). Which means you are asking to less 75% for parts.

Our standard part replacement warranty is 3 months. We agree at 9 months. Which means 200% increase.

We are sorry to inform you that we cannot meet your request this time.

However we can refer your case to our Sales division for special consideration.

Can we propose RM100(Parts) + RM80 (Labour Charge) = RM180 with parts replacement warranty 6 months to our Sales division ?

Which means parts less 65% and part replacement warranty increase 100%.

As for your brother's camera, please provide us the Job no. We shall trace the record and get back to you later.

Best Regards,<


Finally....

>We are glad to inform you that our company has announced officially in our website that F410 CCD can be replaced under FOC even for over warranty case with effect from 03-10-05.

Which means you need to pay only RM30 for another broken part as per attachment. Please reply this email if you accept our quotation.

We are sorry for the inconvenience caused.

Thank you for supporting our products.

Regards,<


That's call customer right. And should praise Fujifilm to admit their manufacturing defects. Now i have my camera's CCD repaired FOC (RM30 for repairing front LED). Can start taking pictures to put in my blog already ;)

The Day After Tomorrow

No matter how advance is your technology, no matter how strong is your weapon and defence team. Human power will never overcome power of nature. These scenes taken hours before the hurricane Katrina hit New Orlean... (a very familiar scene from 'The Day After Tomrrow')











How the Chinese stay put in Italy

So funny, something to cheer everyone up...

About a century or two ago, the Pope decided that all the Chinese had to leave Italy. Naturally there was a big uproar from the Chinese community. So the Pope made a deal. He would have a religious debate with a member of the Chinese community. If the Chinese win, they could stay. If the Pope wins, the Chinese would leave.

The Chinese realized that they had no other choice. So they picked a middle-aged man named Ah Pek to represent them. Ah Pek asked for one condition to be added to the debate. "To make it more interesting", he said, "neither side would be allowed to talk". The Pope agreed.

The day of the great debate came. Ah Pek and the Pope sat opposite each other for a full minute.

Then the Pope raised his hand and showed three fingers.
Ah Pek looked back at him and raised one finger.

The Pope waved his fingers in a circle around his head.
Ah Pek pointed to the ground at where he sat.

The Pope pulled out a loaf and a glass of wine.
Ah Pek pull out an apple.

The Pope stood up and said: "I give up. This man is too good. The Chinese can stay."


An hour later, the cardinals were all around The Pope asking him what happened?.

The Pope said, "first I held up three fingers to represent the holy trinity.
He responded by holding up one finger to remind me that there was still one God common to both our religions."

"Then I waved my finger around me to show him that God was all around us."
He responded by pointing to the ground and showing that God was also right here with us."

"I pulled out the wine and loaf to show that God absolves all sin.
He showed me an apple to remind us of the original sin. He had an answer for everything.

What could I do?"


Meanwhile, the Chinese community had crowded around Ah Peh. "What happened?" they asked. "Well," said Ah Pek,

"First he indicated to me that all Chinese had 3 days to get out of here.
I replied to him f*@k off and not one of us was leaving."

Then he pointed that this whole city would be cleared of Chinese.
I showed him that we are staying right here."

"Yes, and then???" asked the crowd. "I don't know", said Ah Pek,

"He took out his lunch, and I took out mine!!!"

Road tax reduction

PUTRAJAYA: Cukai jalan bagi semua jenis kenderaan komersial diturunkan sebanyak 25 peratus, manakala cukai jalan bas sekolah yang kini RM10 setahun, dikurangkan kepada RM2.

Bagi kenderaan persendirian berkapasiti kurang 1,000 cc, cukai jalannya diturunkan kepada RM30 setahun, manakala potongan 50 peratus dikenakan ke atas cukai jalan kenderaan berkapasiti antara 1,000 cc hingga 1,600 cc.

Selain itu, cukai jalan motosikal 151 cc hingga 250 cc dikurangkan 50 peratus. Semua potongan itu berkuat kuasa Isnin ini.

Penurunan cukai jalan ini adalah antara empat langkah utama yang diumumkan kerajaan semalam bagi meringankan beban rakyat terutama golongan berpendapatan rendah berikutan lonjakan harga minyak mentah dunia yang mencecah AS$71 setong.

Tiga langkah lain ialah:

a.. Tidak menaikkan harga petrol, diesel dan gas memasak sehingga akhir tahun ini;

b.. Tidak menaikkan kadar tol bagi tahun ini dan tahun depan.

c.. Menambah kadar bantuan Jabatan Kebajikan Masyarakat kepada orang tua, daif, anak yatim, golongan miskin, keluarga yang hilang mata pencarian, uzur, cacat atau berpenyakit.

Road tax reduction, is it a good news or bad news? Anyhow, tax reduce us a small matter. The petrol price only freeze up to 2005 year end and Tol freeze up to end 2006. What the different if the autorise party freeze the increase at the said period and impose higher rise when they are open to revise the price??!!!

Whatever govenment do, the inflation will still happen in a near future......year 2006 after petrol price. As they said, this is just a temporary releave for public.

National Day outing



Happy National Day! Merdeka! Mau duit Kah! Bun De Ka (Hokkien)! Mi Luo Jia (Mandarin)! Happy 48 Birthday to Malaysia.

Plan to go KLCC park for a morning walk, then lunch in Suria KLCC before a movie at TGV KLCC. After that shop around and lastly re-visit the KL Convention Center and take some photos. Unfortunately plan changed .....

Plan to wake up at 9am but ended up 10:30am, so cancel morning walk...
Reserved a movie ticket for 'Red Eye' at 1:05pm, ticket must be collect 45min before the show but reached Suria at 12:10pm. Reach phone booking counter at 12:20pm, waited for the queue for another 10min. Given the reservation number, checked from the system and the ticket counter attendant said the reserved seats already been taken because it's over the collection time. ... still don't want to admit late and argue with her that I reach on-time but the long queue is causing me late. Fortunately there's still plenty of good seats available, taken two tickets and went for a rush lunch at Genki Sushi before the show...

The movie.......below is review comment taken from the Cinema Online
For a movie with a very simple premise and even simpler (in fact rather underdeveloped one at that) storyline, this movie ended up as a tense psychological thriller complete with the claustrophobic-ness of a plane flight. Goes to show why director Wes Craven is hailed a master in this genre.

If you are an action movie fan. This is the movie you must watch. Charming and beautiful actress, intense pace, In fact, romance, humour, and it reminds me of the movie 'Speed'.

After movie, thinking of shop around but later changed my minds because really too crowded.


So we went to the Kuala Lumpur Convention Center. Taken some photos outside the building, went to the underground where's the Aquaria located. Gosh, the queue is at least 100m long from the aquarium entrance and it will takes at least 2 hours to reach the entrance...... just wonder why are those peoples still willing to waste the time to queue up, after all the aquarium visit may takes only half an hour.
