October – Self Promotion Month

Posted by: popoyan  /  Category: Misc

Do you know that October is self promotion month?

Yeah, you know it right now. Is not too late yet to know it now.

How many of you are doing good in self promoting? Promoting yourself to your friends and family, promoting yourself to your superior and subordinate, etc

Let me self promote myself with teh below picture before I proceed further.


Reading some articles showing that nearly 87% of our world’s population does not promote themself. Many people do not promote themself or do not self promote as they are afraid of REJECTION.

There are many ways we can self-promote. I’ll jus list our few which come into my mind at this point of time:

  • create your own blog to introduce and promote yourself
  • join social network media to let more and more people get updated on what you are doing and get more friend to know about you
  • participate in forums to help people or share knowledge that need help in your expertise for more people to know you
  • attend business networking event to get to know more people that have more friend that might be interested to know you
  • reques your friend to promote yourself and you help to promote them at the same time
  • use your own brand, logo in public so that people can easily recognise you

Come on, share with me if you have any more idea or better way to self promote. Let’s start to promote yourself from TODAY.

What if my blog traffic keep growing?

Posted by: popoyan  /  Category: Misc

I registered the domain name myself with exabytes-raya-logo on April 2008 when Mynic newly launched their 2LD domain aroun March 2008. I bought this domain because I’m born in Malaysia and grow up in Malaysia.

My most wanted domain name is Unfortunately, the domain name has been taken by others when I get to know what is a domain name back in October 2002. The domain name will expire in March every year and I pray really hard that there is one day that the owner no longer like this domain name and release it to the public.

I just started to setup this blog on January 2009 after I joined Sales and Marketing Department of exabytes-raya-logo. Blog is something more and more people is doing right now. We can easily express what is in our mind, what is in our heart and what is our interest in our own blog.

Blog is also a place where people earn some extra income by joining affiliate  of some other famous brand (such as Exabytes Angel) by earning commission for successful sales brought to that company, earning extra income by placing banner for some advertiser, etc.

My blog is now hosting on shared hosting environment (EBiz Gold Linux) where there are maximum of 300 domain hosted per server due to my blog is still new and does not really have much traffic.


Now that I’m updating my blog at least once a week, meaning that I have fresh content at least once a week and this will help a lot for my blog to have more exposure.

When my blog traffic keep growing untill a level that my blog no longer suitable to be hosted under shared hosting, I will upgrade my hosting plan to Semi-Dedicated server hosting. In Semi-Dedicated server, I will only be sharing the resources for the whole server with 9 other domains. Meaning having only 10 domain name hosted per server.


If my blog traffic grow even bigger or higher, oh yeah, that is the time that I shall take up a dedicated server where me alone using the whole server without sharing it any other people. Yes, my blog will be having her own bunglow.


Do you think that the boss of exabytes-raya-logo is getting crazy? He is offering only RM9.90 for first month for new signup of dedicated server while stock last. On top of the crazy price, the server is guaranteed to be ready in 1 day. Is this promotion sound Good or Good?

What next if 1 dedicated server not sufficient to support my blog traffic? Get 1 more dedicated server lor.

Hehe, stop dreaming, come back. Time to go meet “Mr Chow”. Good night.

After explosion

Wonder how the factory looks like after the explosion?

See below picture.





Ya, the factory is no more working for now.  Will go back and check it out this weekend again.

Explosion on Factory in Kampung Acheh

Posted by: popoyan  /  Category: Misc

Sunny Saturday morning, rainy Saturday afternoon.

Suddenly aunti from next house called and mention the glove factory exploded. We looked out from the Windows of house (located at Kampung Acheh) and see dark dark color smoke flowing like cloud out from the factory behind our house.


OMG, the building which is on fire is just 1 factory building away from our house. Fortunately, there is some distance from the burning building to another factory building before our house. It looks so scary for the dark color smoke which is keep flowing out. The smoke is very smelly. may be due to this is a glove factory and there are a lot of rubber and chemical. We brought Chyi and Kang out go kai kai to avoid sucking in all those smelly + poisoning smoke.

When we are away in our car, we go turn around this area and see that the smoke spread wide.

There are at least 4 to 5 fire engine surrounding the factory building trying to control the fire and smoke.







Swimming Class Today

Posted by: popoyan  /  Category: Misc

I’m staying in a lovely condominium in Penang. This condo has a very big swimming pool. Don’t ask me how big, never measure before. But I have some picture taken before I move in and stay here around 4 years ago.

My colleague came to my place for swimming for few times and they enjoy it so much with such a big pool. The pool consist of a baby pool (around 2 feet deep) and adult pool (1.8 meter). The baby pool has a water fall and a slide.


Today, they will be coming again to swim. Actually they come to play more than to swim. I’m alright with that as long as they enjoy it and they are happy with it since using or not using the facilities, I will still need to pay the maintenance fee of RM135/month to the management.

Today, I’ll be having a swimming class. Yes, you are right, swimming class. But not I attend or I learning to swim. I’ll be the coach to coach my colleague on how to swim.

I’m not a swimming instructor, I do not know how the actual or proper way to teach people to swim. But I will just teach from how I learn it. Teaching them to relax themself, teaching them to kick, etc. No fee involve and no guarantee. Haha.

Wish me good luck in today’s swimming class and wish my colleague good luck.

Posted by: popoyan  /  Category: Child Sponsorship, Misc

Have you heard about 30-Hour Famine 2009?

This year, internationally-acclaimed Taiwanese singer, A-Mei will be our 30-Hour Famine Ambassador.


WorldVision is putting in a lot of effort to invite more campers to join them in their 138 DIY camps around Malaysia. The purpose of this is to raise fund in order to support children around the world especially those suffer hunger in coutry which facing food crisis.

Little Marccus is going to participate in this camps. He is paying RM120 (camper fee also the donation to the poors) + RM 30 (T-shirt and miscellaneous fee) to suffer the 30 hours of hunger. The camps will start from 15-Aug-09 to 16-Aug-09.

This is my receipt for donating to this event. Small amount but hope it is able to help.


Picture taken by Seong Seong on top of the carpet at my house. Nice?

Ops, just realise that the money that donate to WorldVision (through Marccus) is used as the camping fee. In other words, we are sending this slim little Marccus to suffer hunger. Marccus, hope you survive the 30 hours. Make sure you do not MC the next day. haha.

We should have send other people which have more fats inside their body with the hope to help them burn off some of their fat next time.

Back to the point why I write this blog post. 

Every 7 seconds, a child dies of hunger. Because of the food crisis, tens of thousands more will die. You’ve got the power of change that – will you?

Join WorldVision Malaysia Group in FaceBook to keep yourself up to date for all their event which can help you to help more around the world that need helps.
