The Ninth Day Of Chinese New Year

Well , this time posting is about another Big Day in Chinese New Year Calendar , the ninth day of the New Year , which is a day for Chinese to offer prayers to the Jade Emperor of Heaven (天宮) in the Taoist Pantheon. The ninth day is traditionally the birthday of the Jade Emperor. This day is especially important to Hokkiens . Come midnight of the eighth day of the new year, Hokkiens will offer thanks giving prayers to the Emperor of Heaven. Offerings will include sugarcane as it was the sugarcane that had protected the Hokkiens from certain extermination generations ago. Incense, tea, fruit, vegetarian food or roast pig, and paper gold is served as a customary protocol for paying respect to an honored person . This is the first time i celebrate Tien Gong Praying ... thanks to Yann Yann for inviting me ;)


Here is the offering for the Jade Emperor
6 Roast pig with alot of sugar cane and so on .....

It feels like a war there ....... where one house from another continue shooting firework ... LOL

My Visit To Nuffnang Office

Well , went to Nuffnang office yesterday ......... for collecting my ...........................
Stormwarrior merchandise ......

The address ;

Nuffnang Sdn Bhd (762669-K)
12B-5 & 12B-6, Heritage House,
33 Jalan Yap Ah Shak,
50300 Kuala Lumpur,
Malaysia.
Office No : +6 03 2694 8828

There're open on weekdays from 9am till 6pm with exceptions on public holidays.


Well , it was friday noon , around 1PM . The original plan was to go there with CoCo but she was away , so i thought of going there to collect the merchandise before going to work !
The place is quite easy to find as its really near to Maison Club ..... to save your time just park at the open car park at the MAISON ( don't tell me you don't know where ..... cos im sure most people clubs ...... even though i never been there ) which cost you RM 1.50 / hour , the walk to the brown building with green windows line on your right hand side ( Maison is on your left )






Or you can spot this place , its opposite this building !





 Once you enter the building , go to the lift and then press 12B ( there is many 12 , 12A and 12B , perhaps not good for having 13 , 14 )


When exit the lift , you can see the sign to guide you to the office , pointing left ........ 
follow the way ...... and you'll see the door with the NUFFNANG icon , press the bell and DA DA !!! Welcome to Nuffnang ! Inside the office , i can see the Nuffnang FootPrint board hanging there ....... empty !!! haha ......... wondering how it'll look like after it is full !!!
Then i continue with collecting my freebies ...... which is two table calendar , 1 T-shirt and a huge umbrella !!!
Well , now i know how to go to Nuffnang ........... 
Thanks Nuffnang and Eon Bank !

Hacker In MSN !

Virus / Spam / Spyware is running lose in the msn AGAIN !
Few Years before , this has been a familiar thing in msn where all my friend's msn will auto send link to their contact even though they did not online !
The message will be something like this ;

" You gotta bookmark this coool site:
http:///iherbalplus.com/redir.php?offer=tZek5tfCmty8kqXPn4Ga37CFg77IqbPbu8Gj2rRYNSufuZ-iwr6l46eltY2UmYyt

brb... "

Here's the catch , whenever you click on the link it send ....... BANG ! your msn is infected . Meaning that your msn will send the similar link to all your msn contact , continue spreding itself !
There is another way those programmer try to hack you , by adding you in msn . So how , they managed to send those link to all your contact when you add the UNKNOW msn contact . This happened once before to me .... 
How to solve ?!
well , it depend on how the programmer program the spyware / worm . Some it can easily be detected by using FULL COMPUTER SCAN by ANTI VIRUS ( please use something better and not like thos FREE AVG anti virus ) . If this still cant solve this problems , try use anti-spyware which you can search online ( Lavasoft , Anti-spyware ) . If you haven't click any of those link , but your friends is complaining bout your msn keep sending those link , you have to check if you added some stranger from msn lately or not . If got , try to contact them to double confirm if they are really your friends , or its a BOT who send those link . DELETE IT if it is not your friends !
Well , the final solution if you can't do anything to stop the auto sending will be REFORMAT ! haha ......
well , do be carefull whenever you click link , or adding people in msn . ( even in facebook also can get hacked as i mention HERE )

Do enjoy chatting ........  but in a more careful way ....... !

Toll Discount During CNY

Gong Xi Fatt Chai to everyone out there ....... 
During this festives season , im sure there will be alot of people travel back to hometown to meet their love one ( as in relative ) . And this year will be the special one as we'll be having Chinese New Year Along With Valentines together .
well , here is another great news ,
PLUS offers additional toll discounts of almost 20 percent for Chinese New Year Holidays, extends to two more highways.
Class 1 highway users ( home car la ) can enjoy a cumulative toll discount of almost 20 percent when they exit and pay toll between 12:00 midnight and 7:00 am at the North-South Expressway, Seremban-Port Dickson Highway (SPDH), ELITE and Linkedua (except for toll plazas near the borders such as Tanjung Kupang, Johor Bahru Causeway and Bukit Kayu Hitam) on 10,11, 12, 17, 18 and 19 February 2010 in conjunction with the Chinese New Year holidays.

The additional 10 percent discount is given on top of the existing 10 percent discount enjoyed by Class 1 vehicles on these expressways everyday during off peak hours.
For example, a one-way journey from the Jalan Duta Toll Plaza (Kuala Lumpur) to the Juru Toll Plaza (Penang) will only cost RM35.00 if users exit the PLUS highway between 12 midnight and 7 am on the said dates compared to RM43.30 during normal periods
The additional festive season toll discounts are offered during all major festive seasons namely Hari Raya Aidilfitri, Chinese New Year, Deepavali and Christmas to reflect the 1Malaysia concept.

 Motorists are also advised to use the electronic toll payment systems such as the PLUSMiles card, the Touch ‘n Go card or the SmartTAG for smoother passage at toll plazas this festive season.

So , travel smart to save more in this festives season ...... and have a safe journey no matter where go heading !
Gong Xi Fatt Chai , Hong Bau Na Lai !!!

Good News For Baby Ammar !

Well , love is everywhere ....... and the reality is not so cruel as we thought , as this cute little baby ammar , received love from everyone , and in just three days of fund raising from Nuffnang , managed to raise RM 3,359 from Nuffnangers for Baby Ammar . and that is not the only good news , where Institut Jantung Negara (IJN) has agreed to waive part of the fees for Baby Ammar’s surgery, and Azmaniza has also been carrying out some fund-raising efforts of her own. As such, in addition to the funds that Azmaniza already has, the amount that has been raised so far will be enough to cover the amount needed for Baby Ammar’s surgery. HURRAY !!!!

So let us pray for the successful surgery of Ammar !!!!!

Baby Amar VS Donation Group on Times Square Bridge

Berjaya Times Square , a place which im sure everyone in kl been there before ....

but did you noticed a group of chinese youngster aged around 18 to 26 who always stay in a group asking for donation ?! their working location will the pedestrian bridge on the Amoda / Sg Wang side bridge ( not the Monorail Side ) . Basically , i will saw them most of the day ( as in 29 days in 31 days ) and their working time will be morning till late 10PM . they have been there more than 3 months ( as i will be passing there everyday for work ) and each and everytime they will ask RM 10 for donation , and in return , they will give u back something ( doll , fan , pen and ETC and change from time to time ) . I doubt that they are really legal donation group as they will disappear whenever times square security ( not the small potato who is there just to act like statue but the management type ) is there , or the group will stand far away from the bridge . And , i did saw one of the lady ( which i think she is the leader / boss ) counting her stock with the donation thing , i always seen her teaching the group on how to stop the passerby , surround them and ask for money . Once i even heard a guy talking in mandrin scolding a passerby who refuse to pay "RM10 also "tai em hoi meh" ( RM 10 also not willing to pay ) . They did try to stop me few times before but i just ignore them but from what i saw before , the will touch your shoulder ( no matter you are guys or girls ) which i felt it's rude , and they even purposely stand infront of the girls to stop her , force her to listen ( which i felt its not a good way and some might found it is offensive ) . From what i felt , they are just another "CON-Group" asking for money ....... which , disturbing and even making the road stuck with all of their people stoping everyone who walk by . To those who really like to make donation or charity , you can always find a legal donation group , charity house , donation funds who is registered ( like TV3 donation channel , mercy malaysia and so much more ) ! not to those who use your money for their clothes , handphone , cars and others ........ !
To those who got this experience , especially the same group i mention , do share your experience here . ( as i never even give them a chance to talk with me :P )

And for those who really sincerely like to make donation , no matter how little it is ( every bit helps ) , you can start to do so now with and easy way .

Here is one of the people who really need help from everyone .......


2-year-old Ammar Danish has suffered from Patent Ductus Arteriosus (PDA) since birth. He has a hole in his heart which results in oxygenated blood and non-oxygenated blood mixing together, which in turn puts a lot of strain on his heart and lung arteries. In some cases, the hole eventually seals itself up after some time, but during a routine checkup on 11 January 2010, it was clear that that wasn’t the case with Baby Ammar and doctors pronounced surgery as being necessary to prevent the situation from growing worse.

Baby Ammar’s mother is Nuffnanger Azmaniza bt Mohamad Kamal, who blogs at http://mylife-asz.blogspot.com. When this misfortune was brought to our attention by some concerned Nuffnangers, we immediately felt compelled to do something to help a member of our community. The deposit for the surgery to close the PDA will cost RM12,000 and is a tremendous burden for Azmaniza, a full-time working mom with five children to feed.
 
 

There are a few ways you can help Baby Ammar get the surgery that he needs; we’re sure everyone would be able to contribute through one of the ways as mentioned below:
1. Enable ‘Show Charity Ads’ in your Blog Manager preferences for the duration of this fundraiser. You will not be paid for displaying the ads, but the ads will greatly help to promote this cause to more people who might be willing to do something for Baby Ammar.
2. Blog about Baby Ammar’s condition, and include a link to this Nuffnang blog post so that your readers will know where to go for more information. Again, this will also do a great service to Baby Ammar by spreading the word about his condition.
3. Make a donation to Azmaniza Mohamad Kamal – 514093114912 (Maybank). Every little bit helps, so please do contribute any amount you can.
Baby Ammar’s surgery is scheduled for 22 February 2010, and the fund-raising effort will end on midnight at 17 February 2010. It is indeed a short period of time, but let us all rise to the occasion and prove to everyone the strength of a blogging community like ours. We’ll update in this post from time to time on the amount of donations raised.

Time is short ...... so hopefully they can have enough to save this cute little child . Every little bit helps .... any may luck be with you amar ~
