I just found out that Google Adsense has enabled the option to get the earning payout by Western Union. It’s a lot more faster than waiting for the cheque. Standard Delivery checks are sent by regular mail and should arrive within 2-3 weeks of the mailing date. Meanwhile, Secured Express Delivery checks are sent via courier and should arrive within 1 week at a fee of $24.00. Western Union payment are processed on the same day
What is Western Union Quick Cash?

Let me introduce you to a new event that is held in Malaysia at the moment. It’s called the Month of Thievery ! Every time when festive season sets in, thievery ops are on high. Burglary, embezzlement, larceny, looting, robbery, mugging, trespassing, shoplifting, intrusion, fraud. You name it! Those are the act of thievery.
This month’s trend is bag snatching. It happens everywhere, day or night, regardless of whether it’s deserted or crowdy area. It still happens even if all precaution were taken to prevent such incident from happening. Snatchers are everywhere, waiting for the right moment to strike when they sees the opportunity.
This month, a friend of mine became a victim of snatch thief. Her bag containing her mobile phone, purse, some other value items were snatched off by a Malay guy in just a flash. Guess what? Yesterday, while I was taking dinner at Wangsa Maju food centre, a girl’s bag got snatched in front of so many people. The girl’s friend gave a chase but the guy got off on a motorcycle as his accomplice were waiting for him by the roadside. Now you see how desperate people are? Well, let me tell you something. If you plan head of the police station and tell the police that the person who snatched is a Malay, they will ask if you’re 100% sure that the snatcher is a Malay?. I guess they just couldn’t accept the fact that the highest number of cases involves a Malay snatcher.
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.
Note: This is NOT a paid post. I’m just keen to join the charitable cause. =P
This is so freakin weird…
Just couple of days ago, I posted a Petrol Saving Tips . The next thing I know, Petronas is screamin their asses off bout raising the fuel price.. Gosh ! If only I knew what’s coming out for jackpot tomorrow ! Cos if I strike the pot, I don’t have to worry that I don’t have the extra $$ to fill my tank.
Hmm.. but then again, I’m still considered lucky that I don’t own a car yet. My family has only 1 car and I only get to use it when I’m back in Seremban.
Anyway, our DPM said there won’t be a price hike this year BUT Petronas’s proposal will be taken into consideration. Which means, fuel price will surely go up next year. And then the propanganda starts…. Sign board being put up telling everyone how good the government is, subsidizing the fuel blaa blaa blaa…
If really so, why did the government exports low-sulphur fuel to other countries at high price and import medium/high sulphur fuel for cheaper price for us to use ? Anyone who studied Geography in high school would know that Malaysia is rich of low sulphur fuel on the Sunda plates.
I remembered someone told me that fuel with higher content of sulphur can damage engine faster. Can anyone confirm this ?
Today was supposed to be happy day for my friend cos it’s her birthday. Unfortunately, things went wrong for her. She was looking forward to her birthday last night and it was also the last day of her mid-term examination.
Little does she know, she became a victim of a snatch thief. That bastard snatched her bag containing her purse, cellphone, and few other valuable stuffs. She’s now totally dead broke and there’s gonna be lotsa explaing to do since the phone she was using, belongs to her sister. The only thing I don’t understand is, WTF are those passerby doing? All they did was just WATCH and NOT helping at all, despite the fact that she was yelling for help. Is this the Malaysian culture ?
How dare that Malay bastard calling himself a Muslim, going around snatching other people’s belonging in the month of Ramadhan. This is totally outrageous ! Has the government not feed him enough that he has to go around stealing ?
I wonder why whenever a Chinese goes into a police station and reported a “Malay” snatched their stuff, the Policeman would ask to double-confirm that the snatcher really is a Malay or not. Why is that so ? Are they protecting them ? This is what happen when she went to file her report and this was exactly the same thing that happened to me 2 years ago when I filed a report of snatch thief. I think they would probably discard the case very soon because it’s not important and it did not happen on a “Datuk”’s son or daughter. The police have “better things to do” than to care about such small cases..
Well, to that bastard who caused misery and trauma to my friend, here’s my “prayers” for you.
“ May your coming days filled with mishaps. All the consumed food you bought with the money you stole will cause disease to you and your family. Series of unfortunate events will haunt you and your family and your descendents. You future kid will be born without a reproductive organ so that will be the “last” of you. And when you die, hope you’ll rot in HELL “
