People First: Empowering People with Disabilities

Hi folks!

Today is Bloggers Unite online event, People First: Empowering People with Disabilities, see more details here:

During this week, bloggers around the world would to take a pledge to spend a little time and write a post to raise awareness about the important issue of empowering our fellow citizens that are living with a disability.

Feel free to add your voice to the list of bloggers writing about this issue!  One post joins hundreds of others is when make a great impact!

I personally meet with people with different types of disability ranging from mobility, hearing and vision.

When I first joined my current co., the thing that makes a good feeling to me is not the professional-looking workforce, not the friendly and helpful HR & Training crew, neither is the lunch allowance perk, the first thing that I find it encouraging is seeing a mobility impaired colleague. To me, a co. who hires a disabled person and provides equal opportunity for career advance speaks a lot about the company's vision and working culture.

That colleague(an engineer) has travelled around different places around the globe doing software consultancy and support just like any others on his team. 

That really makes me salute not only to him but also to the co. and his immediate superior who gave this able-man an equal chance an right to perform and contribute to his own life, to his co. & to the society as a whole!

So cheers to such organization and may more & more co. practice such equality at workplace!

Cheers & remember to say hi and smile to these "able-men" who are just like anyone of us despite their physical impairment! ;)

Ignore fake e-mail from, says IRB

Hi folks,
Have you heard the news about fake email from which claims as if from  IRB!!!
I heard about this news over the radio and at TheStarOnline here.

Excerpts from TheStarOnline

KUALA LUMPUR: Tax payers have been advised to ignore e-mails purportedly sent by the Inland Revenue Board (IRB) asking them to claim for refund for overpaid income tax.

IRB said the e-mails sent through an address did not originate from the board.

The board said it had received numerous enquiries from the public regarding the fake e-mails which claimed that overpaid income tax of RM700 would be refunded to tax payers.

This is believed to be the latest scam to hoodwink the public into divulging their personal details, particularly their income tax details to unknown people.

It said that those who have queries should get in touch with the board's customer service centre though e-mail at or call 1-300-88-3010.
Go to TheStarOnline for full report.
Take care and stay alert always!

New Series Premiere-PORORO THE LITTLE PENGUIN on Playhouse Disney!

Hi folks!

Playhouse Disney will be presenting for the first time in Malaysia, a brand new series, Pororo the Little Penguin on Astro Channel 613 this coming July 26, Monday at 6.30pm!

Once upon a a land far far away, unknown and untouched by human civilization, lies a peaceful island covered in snow and ice.  On this white island, deep inside a small secluded forest, is a tiny village inhabited by little animals.  No one knows how they came to live on the island but they naturally came to live together in the village situated in the little valley where the sunshine is warmest and the cold wind is least harsh.  In the village lives Pororo, a very inquisitive impish little penguin, good-natured polar bear Poby, smug nosy red fox Eddy, shy and timid little beaver Loopy, friendly penguin girl Petty and happy humming bird Harry.

All of our friends have distinct personalities and different interests which sometimes cause little (and sometimes not so little) happenings in their calm white world.  But they are all good friends and know how to help each other in times of trouble.  Through Pororo and his friends, your little ones will have fun learning how to overcome challenges and get along with others too!  Wondering how Pororo looks like?!  Check out the photo above 

Have an awesome week!

What type of Blogs do you Read?

Hi folks!

Howdy….howdy….now I like to just get you to respond to the following questions:

1.       Do you own a blog?

2.       Do you love writing blog?

Answered "No" for both questions above? How about the following question:

1.       Do you read blog(s)?

Can I assume that you answered "Yes" for question above? Why? If not you won't be reading this article here  :D

Now, if you read blog(s), what types of blogs do you read? And when is the time you read?

For me, I love blog hopping (a term used to refer to move from one blog after another to read the entries or to leave comments) from various types of blog. The following are the different types of blog I read almost daily:

1.       Parenting Blog

2.       Cooking/Recipe Blog

3.       Budget and Household Tips Blog

4.       Entertainment/Media Blog

5.       IT Blog

6.       News Blog

7.       Medical/Health Blog

8.       Personal development Blog

9.       Family Relationship Blog

10.   Fashion Blog

And the above does not include Friends' blog which comprises general updates/journals about their daily life which might not be categorized into any genre.

I like to find out what types of blog do you guys read daily and why? I am doing a small study (on my own) on the types of blog people read daily and why would make people diligently reading each type of blog.

So do be generous and leave your comments here J if you got something to share.
