I finally got paid by Google Adsense for the first time after 1 and half years of blogging. Although the earning were not much, I was somewhat satisfied with it.
Anyway, I made my withdrawal through Western Union last week. As mentioned earlier in my blog, I proceeded to CIMB Branch in KL Sentral. The queue was rather long but I guess it’s worth the wait. Before you queue up, make sure you’ve filled the form located at the form section. The form has a yellow colour heading.
I knew which form to take as this is my 3rd time withdrawing money via Western Union. You might notice that in the Receiver column there isn’t enough space to fill in a typical Malaysian address which is so freaking long. So what I did was, I only put my house number and the street name in the form. As long it matched your details in your Identification Card.
In the Sender column, I filled in
First name : Google Inc.
Address : 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway
Mountain View CA 94043
Telephone no: (650) 253–4000
Note that CA stands for California and 94043 is the Zip-code/ Poscode. I printed out my Statement of Earnings as my reference. Make sure you fill in the exact amount that you’re receiving from Adsense. As for the “City, state/province, country money sent from” part, just fill in CA, USA. Then fill in the 10–digit MTCN number you got from the Google Adsense payment detail page. And you’re done with the form.
Just queue up and wait for you turn. During my queue, I saw a lady transacting her Western Union withdrawal as well. The amount she was withdrawal was quite shocking. As I looked at the screen of the money counter, it stated 300. OMG!! 300 RM50 notes per form. She was holding 3 piece of form by the way. =.=”
I was really curious bout what the PHUNK is goin on ? I’ve been noticing the ads appearing on my site recently. I got so curious so I went googling it for more info.
As results, it leads me to http://www.project-phunk.blogspot.com/ . So, what the PHUNK is it about ? PHUNK is a pretty huge charity project done by students from Taylors College, PJ. They’re Diploma in Communication students and currently in Sem 4. “PHUNK” stands for “Providing Hospis Understanding N Kare“.
The objective of the project is to raise funds for Hospis Malaysia, a non-governmental organization which provides palliative care services. For info about Hospis Malaysia ,click here.
Several charity events by these students has taken place and they’re currently preparing for their main event, One night with PHUNK. This event will be held on 25th Sept 2007 from 7.30-10.00pm @ Laundry Bar, The Curve Damansara, Kuala Lumpur . Local artists such as BadBoyBen, Tempered Mental, Joshua & Slunk, & Bobo (from Cosmic Space Munkys) will be invited to the event and it probably gonna be crowdy there.
Admission is FREE by the way. Raffle tickets, souvenirs, and other stuffs with be sold on that night. Raffle tickets will be sold at RM10 per ticket and it entitles you for a lucky draw. All profits will donated to Hospis Malaysia. So, if you’re attending the event, open your heart and be generous with your givings.

Updates : Due to the bad weather, I’m not able to see a single thing.
Tonight, we might be able to see the final portion of the Lunar Eclipse. It will be visible in Peninsula Malaysia but I’m not sure what’s the degree of visibility and what location it is visible. The eclipse began at 4:51pm MYT, Total eclipse at 5:22pm MYT and the Final portion will be expected at 7:22pm MYT.

So, start gazing at the moon at 7:22pm. I definately don’t wanna miss it even though it’s only the final part. But the weather here in KL makes me doubt that I’ll even get to see it. It’s been raining on and off today. I wonder when will it stop. Hopefully there isn’t much cloud covering the view.
