Pay Less Books Warehouse Sale

Avid readers in the Klang valley may be happy to know that there will be a book warehouse sale in town this weekend. Pay Less Books is having their warehouse sale from 3-5 Sep at the YMCA KL.

A colleague buys his books from Pay Less Books for the reason that they are priced lower than books at other bookstores, which accounts for their store name, I guess.
Here's a question for you. What do you do with all the books that you no longer want to keep? Just thrash them? Pass them to friends and family? Donate them to some center? Over in the US, there are avenues you could sell used books . They even pay for your shipping them the books. How cool is that!

Safe and thorough Rapid Detox

In a news article in the US, it states that Drug Overdose Now a Top Killer, about to overtake traffic fatalities, and in 16 states and counting, drugs now kill more people than auto accidents do. The 16 states are Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Michigan, Illinois, Colorado, Utah, Nevada, Oregon and Washington.

There has been a dramatic change in how doctors these days prescribe opiates. Opiates contain opium or its derivatives, used in medicine for inducing sleep and relieving pain. In some counties, a big part of medication deaths involved people who got their drugs through legal prescriptions.

Rapid detox is a process that rids the body of the addiction. Rapid Detox only treats physical aspects of opiate drug addiction, not the psychological aspects. Patients still will need long term counseling by addiction rehab professionals or risk relapse due to psychological factors.

At the Las Vegas Rapid Detox Center, their program is safe and more thorough. They do 8 hours of detox while other centers do 1 hour of detox. They provide continuous one-on-one nursing care by their superb staff for 36 to 48 hours. No other clinic offers such intensive care. Financing can also be arranged.

Mount Sinabung volcano in Indonesia erupts after 400 years

Woke up this morning expecting the sky to be overcast due to the volcanic eruption which occurred at midnight last night but it wasn't so. Earlier today, there was another eruption at 6.30 a.m., sending plumes of smoke rising from the 2,460-metre Mount Sinabung volcano after the second eruption. Inactive since 1600, the volcano had been rumbling for several days.

Indonesia is on the so-called Pacific Rim of Fire, an arc of volcanoes and geological fault lines triggering frequent earthquakes around the Pacific Basin. The eruption triggered the highest red volcano alert.

About 21,000 people had been evacuated from largely farming areas. Many fled to Medan, 50 km (30 miles), Indonesia's third-largest city, northeast of the volcano. Officials said much of the movement was unnecessary.

"People have been evacuated from areas within a six km (four-mile) radius of the volcano," vulcanologist Surono said. "Beyond six km it is safe, but there has still been a lot of panic among people here who don't understand that."

He said it was impossible to know when the eruptions would stop, but it was unlikely volcanic dust would drift to neighbouring countries.

"Here, it is three millimetres (1/8 of an inch) thick on the leaves of plants," he said.

Its value increasing over time and now serves as a good hedge against inflation thus protecting wealth and preserving one's purchasing power.

Gold can be bought in the form of gold coin or gold ingot. If you are looking into buying gold, the United States Gold Bureau is where you can make your purchase. Their dedicated and professional staff will be able to advise you on the purchase of gold or other precious metals. There's no better time to buy gold than now.

What is Multiple Sclerosis

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is an inflammatory disease that affects the brain and spinal chord, i.e., the central nervous system. MS results when the fatty myelin sheaths around the axons of the brain and spinal cord are damaged, leading to demyelination and scarring that causes a broad spectrum of symptoms. Disease onset usually occurs in young adults and is more common in females. The cause remains unknown though theories include genetics or infections. Todate, there is no known cure. Treatments attempt to return function after an attack, prevent new attacks, and prevent disability. Life expectancy of patients is nearly the same as that of the unaffected population.

Multiple Sclerosis Symptoms include loss of sensitivity or tingling, pricking or numbness, muscle weakness, fatigue, difficulties with coordination and balance, difficulties with speech and swallowing, depression, pain and others. MS patients are advised to keep their fitness level up by exercising daily. Aerobics, tai chi, easy weight lifting, swimming, jogging and cycling are some of the exercise that are recommended.

For more Multiple Sclerosis news, diet and exercise, AllAboutMS.com is an informative site for reference. It has articles and updates on the progress on treatment and everything else related to Multiple Sclerosis.

T-shirt with a message

I saw this t-shirt print on a Nuffnang ad and it made me smile. I think this is a real concern as more and more people use text to communicate and the short-forms and short-cuts have slowly but surely crept into our regular written communication. And we wonder why our English standard is not improving? Is it just us in this part of the world or is it universal? Would love to hear your thoughts.

Friday Frolics - Are You Easily Disgusted

Aah, here's an interesting Friday Frolics personality quiz that is somewhat thought-provoking in that it puts forth some situations you would probably never experience in your life. Check it out and see whether you are easily disgusted..

Happy Friday!

HappySurfer is Disgusted Sometimes

You have a fairly thick skin. Something has to be truly revolting before it grosses you out.

You probably weren't always this way, but you've learned how to toughen up. Good for you!

It's fine to be disgusted by totally disgusting stuff. And you know better than to gross anyone out yourself.

Given enough time, you can get used to the most nauseating of situations. You can develop an iron stomach.

Telekom Malaysia's UniFi - high speed broadband service

I was at the mall about a month ago and came across a new Internet service promotion. Telekom Malaysia (TM) was promoting their new high speed broadband service, UniFi. After much explanation by the sales personnel, I was convinced enough that this one would be better than Streamyx, so I signed up for it. Because it was being on promotion, there is no fee for equipment and installation. I'm now using the new service and do see the difference in the speed.

For more info, here is the UniFi website. Let me just provide the gist of it here.

The package is termed VIP -- V for Video or Internet Protocol television (HyppTV), I for High Speed Internet, and P for Phone (Voice Service). Basically, the package provides these three services.

There are three packages, VIP5, VIP10 and VIP20. The numbers after VIP indicate the download speeds, i.e., 5Mbps, 10Mbps and 20Mbps respectively and download volume at 60GB, 90GB and 120GB. Naturally, each package is at a different rate - VIP5 at RM149/month, the VIP10 at RM199/month and the VIP20 at RM239/month.

Right now, all packages have access to 24 basic tv channels though VIP20 subscribers will have access to prime tv channels later on.

Phonecalls are free to all TM fixed lines nationwide and flat rate of 10sen/minute applies to all mobiles and other fixed line numbers.

I signed up for the VIP5 package which more than meets my need especially the download speed of 5Mbps vs that of Streamyx's which is just 1Mbps. A download volume of 60GB is more than enough for me even if I were to download movies. I've yet to cancel the Streamyx line but will do so this weekend. Will also be cancelling the telephone line as UniFi provides a new line/number. Being one of its earliest subscribers, I get a choice of a number I want.

As for the tv, I think I'll just stick with Astro for now. But for those without Astro, the UniFi HyppTV could provide an enhanced tv-watching experience. I believe in time to come, UniFi's HyppTV could give Astro a run for their money. Its reception is not hampered by bad weather the system being on fibre optics, unlike Astro's satellite tv. Besides, with a combo of tv and Internet (and phone), subscribers pay less through UniFi versus having to pay separately for ISP and Astro's tv access. And the phone, of course.

So, if you've not been getting good Streamyx service, or thinking about subscribing to Astro, there's now an alternative. You may want to take a look at what UniFi has to offer.

Things that Smart People do..

Isn't the Internet amazing? You not only get info from it, you get reminders to smile or think silly once in a while. Here's a list I'm sure you've read earlier but is still a good read. Enjoy..

1. Why do supermarkets make the sick walk all the way to the back of the store to get their prescriptions while healthy people can buy cigarettes at the front.

2. Why do people order double cheeseburgers, large fries, and a diet coke.

3. Why do banks leave vault doors open and then chain the pens to the counters.

4.Why do we leave cars worth thousands of rands in our driveways and put our useless junk in the garage.


5. Why the sun lightens our hair, but darkens our skin?

6. Why can't women put on mascara with their mouth closed?

7. Why don't you ever see the headline 'Psychic Wins Lottery'?

8. Why is 'abbreviated' such a long word?

9. Why is it that doctors call what they do 'practice'?

10. Why is lemon juice made with artificial flavouring, and dishwashing liquid made with real lemons?

11. Why is the man who invests all your money called a broker?

12. Why is the time of day with the slowest traffic called rush hour?

13. Why isn't there mouse-flavored cat food?

14. Why didn't Noah swat those two mosquitoes?

15. Why do they sterilize the needle for lethal injections?

16. You know that indestructible black box that is used on airplanes? Why don't they make the whole plane out of that stuff?!

17. Why don't sheep shrink when it rains?

18. Why are they called apartments when they are all stuck together?

19. If flying is so safe, why do they call the airport the terminal?

Now that you've smiled at least once, it's your turn to spread the stupidity and send this to someone you want to bring a smile to (maybe even a chuckle)...in other words, send it to everyone. We all need to smile every once in a while.

Discount coupons and vouchers

McDonald's is one fastfood company that is doing a good job of promoting their products. Just the other day, I found their new flyer in my morning papers. They are promoting their Double GCB this time around. Not sure what the "G" stand for but the "CB" is for Chicken Burger. The flyer also carries coupons for a set of free 20-pc Chicken McNuggets with a conditional purchase, of course. Still, it's a good offer considering..

Anyway, the point is, retailers here need to increase promotion of their business/products. I'm thinking in terms of issuing discount coupons to attract shoppers, something like the sears coupons they give away in the US. Right. We need Carrefour coupons, Tesco coupons, IKEA coupons, etc., etc. I wish?

Dallas Cowboys America's Team And That Will Never Change

Posted by Virgil Burks

Through the years, many teams have tried to copy the Dallas Cowboy's success and grab the title America's Team, but it still resides in Dallas. The Dallas Cowboys has had great stars throughout the years, which has been part of their mystique. With names like Roger Staubach, Tony Dorsett, Drew Pearson, Troy Aikman, and Emmitt Smith leading the way the Dallas Cowboys continue to be America's Team. Even when we fast-forward to 2010 names like Tony Romo, Roy Williams, and Dez Bryant are defining the next century of the Dallas Cowboys.

Just as legendary as the players have been, so have the coaches as well. Tom Landry and Jimmy Johnson both have won Super Bowls and help keep the Dallas Cowboys America's Team. Now the Cowboys have one of the newest and biggest stadiums around and continue to break new ground as America's Team. Watching them on satalite TV is just as much fun now as it was years ago. The Dallas Cowboys have been a part of many people's lives and that will not change anytime soon. Owner Jerry Jones loves the Dallas Cowboys and does whatever it takes to bring a winner to the field. You have to love an owner like that who wants to win so badly. It looks like America's Team will be around for a very long time no matter how others would hope for their demise.

Order Fulfillment can be outsourced to streamline your operation

Many companies are conducting their business differently these days. There's outsourcing involved in some companies. Order fulfillment has become a separate industry all by itself.

Their employees are a team of fulfillment experts with many years experience. AMS Fulfillment is a fulfillment services company that takes care of not only your inventory, it also has your budget in mind.

Manchester United beats Newcastle 3-0

A great start to a new season. Manchester United began its bid for a record-breaking 19th English league title by cruising to a 3-0 victory over promoted Newcastle on Monday. Goals were scored by Berbatov, Fletcher and Giggs.

In the Charity/Community Shield match over a week ago, Manchester United went in as outsiders but beat Chelsea by a 3-1 scoreline.

MasterCard Cardholders in Malaysia spent US$74.2mil during the first weekend of MMSC

The Star today reported that MasterCard cardholders from Malaysia and overseas spent a total of US$74.2mil during the first weekend of the Malaysia Mega Sale Carnival 2010 (MMSC), which was from July 30 to Aug 1, 2010.

In a statement, MasterCard Worldwide said this was an increase of 37% as compared to US$54.1mill spent last year during the first weekend of MMSC 2009, which was from July 4 to July 6, 2009.

It said the total number of transactions made by both Malaysian and overseas cardholders saw a 9% increase from last year, totalling 956,550.

Could one of the reasons be the timing this year of the Hari Raya next month? The Malaysian Mega Sale Carnival this year is perfectly timed for shopping in preparation of the festivities. This annual carnival is from July 24 right through Sep 15 this year.

Dallas Homes for Sale

I hear everything is big in the U.S.. I'm talking about portions, food portions. Space is plentiful in the U.S. too, so houses there are big, and true enough the photos that a colleague in Dallas sent me of his home are evidence enough. He has a sprawling estate. The built-up area itself is extensive and his yard is even more extensive. He's a jacuzzi fan so he has one fitted in his yard. Barbecues are big in the U.S., so he has a bbq pit and area to hold his parties. His garden is full of blooming plants because his missus is passionate about flowers and planting. There are a few other features in his yard including a children's playground of swings and pool and so forth.

If one is looking for a home in the Dallas area, he recommends seeking the help of a professional who usually has an extensive listing of Dallas homes for sale.

Beauty and Hair schools

"Give me a fish, you feed me for a day. Teach me how to fish, you feed me for live." Some wise Chinese sage said that, I think.

It is often believed that if one has a skill, one is set for life or rather a better chance at a better life. A colleague of mine is wise enough to pick up a few certifications. She's a certified private secretary, knows how to tailor clothes (and she does tailoring for colleagues), and she's even graduated from a hairdressing school. One talented lady, she is.

Hairdressing is a good trade. In fact, it is a great trade, one that can allow one to be his or her own boss. If you are in the US in the Wichita area, and are considering going into training to become a hairstylist, you might want to check out the Regency Beauty Institute where they have one of the best if not the best hair schools in Wichita.

Available in 19 different states in the U.S., The Regency facilities are fully-equipped and fabulously—designed to mirror upscale salons. Their program is comprehensive so you'll learn everything you need to learn about the beauty business. They offer full-time as well as part-time classes. The school even helps students with placements, so there's no telling where your career in beauty can take you. Indeed, The Regency is one Cosmetology school with a difference.

Malaysia Mega Sale Carnival is back!

Yesterday was the start of Ramadhan, the month of fasting for Muslim folks around the world. This month this year, a number of events are also happening here in Malaysia. For shoppers, it's the return of the annual Malaysia Mega Sale Carnival.

This hugely popular Mega Sale event this year starts from 24 July to 16 September signifying a six-week long shopping window of great bargains and discounts. This year, it's timely too for Muslim folks celebrating Hari Raya where it's customary to have new clothes, new curtains, new coat of paint for the house, etc.

Starting Aug 10 for the next fifteen days, Buddhists/Taoists of Chinese descent celebrate what is known as the Month of the Hungry Ghosts or what is commonly-referred to as Por Thor where it is believed that the gates of Hades opens to let out spirits. This is the period once a year that these spirits are free to roam the earth, sort of like a spirit vacation. This is the time of year in which you see tents being set up for singing performances by scantily-dressed female singers. However, this year, we'll get to see Chinese opera instead as the organizers have been encouraged to have more 'decent' shows citing that the Emperor of Hades did not request for performances with scantily-clad performers.

Anyway, I'm looking forward to doing some shopping myself and plan to hit some sneaker stores for a good pair of running shoes. Happy shopping y'all..

Teaching my granddaughter how to cook

Guest post written by Grace Miller

One of the things that I promised my granddaughter is that I would teach her how to cook a few basic dishes before she has to fend for herself at college. Until this summer she didn’t know how to do much besides heat up frozen chicken in the oven or fix maracaroni and cheese.

However, my daughter always hated cooking so she never bothered to teach her kids how. I think my granddaughter is picking up on it well. So far I’ve taught her how to make pizza with simple dough made from scratch, fajitas and herb grilled chicken. These seem like pretty basic ones that she can pull off in a cramped dorm kitchen.

As a result, we’ve also spent a lot of quality time and had some great conversations. But at first we were having some problems because over the noise of kneading dough and sizzling vegetables I couldn’t hear her side of the conversation. She suggested that I look up miracle ear cost and get some hearing aids. I did both and noticed a huge difference, with less in the way of me enjoying time with my granddaughter before she heads off to college.

TV Progamming packages

Looking up at all the satellite dishes atop the roofs yesterday brought to mind our discussion over lunch the other day. Almost everyone had something to say about the current Hongkong TVB drama series on Channel 311, Wah Lai Toi channel.

This Cantonese channel with programs primarily from Hongkong's TVB on Astro is among the DIRECTV packages we all subscribe to, so that was quite an animated exchange. My current favorite is the contemporary drama at 9pm, Off Pedder. It tells of the goings-on inside a magazine-publishing company located on Pedder Street in Hongkong - the office politics, the wheeling and dealings, the personal conflicts, and so forth.

However, all of us agreed that we need more, maybe at least another company to provide competition for Astro as well as providing subscribers with more choices of dish packages and at better pricing.

Besides direct tv, cable tv may be an additional option. Cable packages are comparable if not better than directv packages. The choices on cable packages are just as good from what I saw online.

Coffee mug with a difference

Good heavens! Is this a camera lens? Not really. It's a coffee mug impersonating a camera lens rather.

This lens, err, mug, features a rubber grip focus, zoom rings, a working auto-focus switch and a cap for easy hot beverage transport. Cool, eh? Kinda reminds you of the aquarium converted from a tv monitor.


EZ Removals - Peace of mind over cost

I was just on the phone with a friend who moved house over the weekend. She (and her husband) hired a van service for the job, commonly known as a man and van service. Though hiring such a service may be a cheaper option, a professional removal company would have done a better job, they realized.

For starters, they had to do the packing themselves with boxes they managed to obtain (with much difficulty) from various sources. Then the van arrived late putting the move-in time off-balance. Handling was not as professional. They are now worried about breakage of their precious porcelain and crystal pieces as not all boxes have been unpacked. Insurance is not included in the moving by the service. These and a few other grouses are providing a good lesson learned for them as well as for me with regard to the need to hire a professional removal company for that peace of mind.

EZ removals, or rather The House Removals Company, is one company I've bookmarked to contact for a future relocation. Though they are located in the UK, they have international offices all over. On their simple request form for a removal quote, up to 6 removal quotes will be provided to link you up to the 6 companies near you that match your moving requirements. This makes searching for a removal company so much more convenient and time-saving. EZ removals also help you save cost by putting you in touch with a moving box company that provides you packing material at a reduced rate.

No matter whether you're in the UK or anywhere else in the world, EZ removals has a database of hundreds of professional commercial removal companies to help you with your moving. So whether you're looking to move your office, your home, or your warehouse, they can help you get quotes from specialist movers. You get what you pay for but you can only be sure of what you are getting if you hire a professional.

For more information about the company and what it offers, check out EZ removals. You will also find a lot of good information on moving, packing, customs, insurance and others to provide better understanding about removals.

Blue Skies over Kuala Lumpur

Kuala Lumpur hasn't had such beautiful weather for a while now so it was a welcome sight this morning to see distinct white lacy clouds against the bluest of skies. I managed to capture some of that cirrus clouds before they spread out and dissipate into the atmosphere.

Hope your day will be as lovely and as carefree..

Golf course signs can help you Improve your Game

The other day, driving along the highway heading to Kota Damansara, we (a friend and I) were looking out for the signage for DUKE exit. It was nowhere to be found until very close to the exit itself. We had to quickly signal our turning left when we spotted it just in time. If we had missed that exit, we would have to go very much further in order to turn back.
This is just a clear example of how important signages are for people in need. Even in sports, like golf, signage plays a big part and to a certain extent, it can make or break your game. Golf is a game that's played out in a field. Rules of the game and proper golf course signs enable the game to be played correctly and with much enjoyment. A signage as simple as a "Bag Drop" can ensure orderliness and a hassle-free after-game experience.

Golf course signages are not easily available but if you are looking for golf course signs, Golfcoursesignshop.com is where you can find high quality golf course signages and accessories.
