My 500GB Passport

Posted by: popoyan  /  Category: Misc

Wow, PC Fair (09/10/11 April 2010) in PISA Penang has just over.

I did not visit this PC Fair but tumpang Yeong Yeong to help buy a 500GB WD My Passport Essential.

So happy for getting it. I have been thinking to buy a external HDD since few years back to backup my data. However, I keep thinking how much space I shall buy, what brand I shall buy and so and drag till today. I got it from Yeong Yeong this morning and I place it on my table (in office). Many people walk by and ask me what is the price. I tell them RM350 I sell it to them with the pouch. No one seems interested. Hehe.

My laptop keep giving me error recently. I’m so worry that I will lost all my data anytime from now and therefore bought this 500GB of storage space for data backup purpose. Haha, of course with 500GB, I can store a lot of MP3, movie, picture (as i got a campact camera recently too, but not yet blog about it).

Let’s take a look how my new passport looks like.

This is the box (packaging) + a pouch to hold my passport in the future.

Haha, the actual size of my WD 500GB My Passport is half the size of the box only.

Do you see my camera inside the above picture? Yeah lo, the surface of this passport is just so reflective. I think I can use it as my mirror in office in the future.

This picture show the reflection of my living hall ceiling light. Nice huh!! If I do not tell you, you might think this is the design of the casing.

This is how my passport looks like compare to her new house.

This is how her new house looks like from the inside.

OK. I’m done with all the picture for my 500GB passport in this blog post. I have yet to actually start using it while writing this blog post. It’s 11.47pm and I got to test whether this passport is working or not.

This WD My Passport come with 3 years limited warranty.

Ops, I think I have yet to mention the price for this passport. Yeah, the external HDD alone is RM289.00 + the pouch is RM5.00. So, total = RM294.00. Hope  have got a good price for this purchase. :-)

Penang Bridge International Marathon

Posted by: popoyan  /  Category: Misc


Penang Bridge International Marathon or in short PBIM was successfully held on 22-Nov-09 (Sunday). It was a successful event from my point of view. My dear Seong Seong is the one that developed the online registration system for them and this system helps the event a lot especially during the collection week (16-Nov-09 to 21-Nov-09).

See below for how the collection counter for PBIM 2009:



Look at the picture below, do you see the head of an alien on this laptop? Yes, you are right, this is the so called “Alienware” sponsired by Dell for this event. Will need to give it back to them after the event. Heard that it worth around RM10k per unit. It weight around 4kg per unit. Damn heavy.


PBIM had developed a portal purposely for this event at This portal actually display all the information and updates using Joomla! It is hosted with our company – Exabytes. They are hosted on Semi Dedicated server all these while and we have then migrated them into dedicated server due to a sudden increase in website traffic 1 week prior to the event.

We (Exabytes) were given a sales booth at PBIM Expo as we are one of their partner in running this event. This is a 20ft x 20ft booth. Is a very big booth for us as all our previous exhibition booth were normally 3m x 3m booth or 6 ft table booth. All our previous exhibition experience were indoor exhibition and this is our first time experience having booth at outdoor booth.


Inside picture above is Marccus.

Due to the booth is just outside QueensBay Mall and it is just besides the sea, the wind is so strong that even the elephant backdrop keeps falling. We ended up have to remove the backdrop and keep it. In otehr words, we have only 1 streamer (standing banner) which we tie it on one of the chair to avoid it falling.


We were given this booth at the very last minutes and I have only few days to prepare for what to promote in this booth and for our designer to get ready with the brochure design + printing. Everything was in a hurry.

My sincere thanks to my designer and all my team member (sales team and nonsales team) who have helped out in this sales booth daily from 11am to 9pm from 17-Nov-09 to 20-Nov-09 and 11am from 21-Nov-09 to 11am 22-Nov-09 (on-stop). You are all very awesome.

I have been on duty as usual in office during office hour and continue to assist in sales booth for whole week. On event Saturday, I have wake up at 8am as I need to fetch Seong Seong to the collection counter in the morning as we have only 1 car for now which we need to share. After that, I have went to USM hostel to fetch my cousin and her stuff to store in my house as USM is on semester break now. After that continue with some of my work before leave my hosue to PBIM booth around 3pm.

From there, I’m then on duty till 11am on Sunday and reach home, take bath and sleep only on 1pm. If you calculate them carefully, I have not sleep for around 29 hours. Amazing. I have break my own record for not sleeping in more than 24 hours.

Guess what? another amazing thing happen in my life. I slept from 1pm (22-Nov-09) till 7am (23-Nov-09) – total of 18 hours. Break 2 record in within 1 days time. Keng ler !!!

Below is picture of myself and myself explaining to visitor to our booth.



Have met sister of my colleague (KK Kwan) as picture below. Penang is real small huh. Hope she don’t mind I put her picture up here:


Met a lot of new young friend in this event. Most of them are secondary school student which is work as volunteer in PBIM. Added few of them in my Facebook.

We were there at the starting point to help cheer up and also there at the finishing line to support the runners.





There is a kid which is so cute, he is holding the crocs’s ballon and I try to play “fighting” with him and he really so sporting to play with me. He si really cute.



PBIM organiser also setup a special backdrop for all teh participant and any visitors to take pictures.


Finally found 1 picture of myself and Seong Seong together for this event.


That’s all for now. Will keep update you all when I have more pictures to share.

Thanks again for spending your time reading such a long blog post. hahaha. :)

Try this when u feel like getting flu

Posted by: popoyan  /  Category: Misc

Feel like so many of my colleague not feeling well or to be more exact, getting flu recently. A H1N1? I hope not.

Me myself also feel like getting flu. Blocking nose, throat feeling dry, boh sia, ah chew, etc. I think all those are symtoms of getting flu.

I have recall that I have received a forward mail from a friend I get to know through joining activities from JCI Tanjung Bungah (Leay Fong). This forward mail teach us how to reduce the possibility of getting flu.

First of all, drink a few ( 2 to 3) glasses of WARM water. Remember, it must be warm water, do not drink cold water.


3 to 5 minutes later, take a cup of hot coffee. Drink the coffee while it is hot or warm. HOT coffee, not COLD coffee


After around 20 to 30 minutes, you will feel like wanna go “output some liquid” from your body.

Slowly, you will feel like all teh symptoms of flu is leaving you now.

Do you know why?

1) Coffee is a type of drink that can makes you feel wanna pee very fast
2) You will be able to output a lot of water from your body with the few glasses of warm water you drink earlier before the coffee
3) Out-putting all the water from our body actually help to wash away most of the virus or bacteria from our body
4) Another reason of using coffee is that coffee is a type of drink that can make you feel awake so that you do not feel dizzy

With all the above simple explanation, it is not hard to understand why the above steps help.

I tried the above precaution steps on my own and I feel it very effective although it does nto really cure the flu. It at least help to prevent, or reduce the possibility of getting flu.

Try this and let me know whether it works for you too.
