Maxis Spam SMS Promotion

Have been receiving messages like this

and this DAILY for years now. I’ve been meaning to stop the service since I’m in Penang and it is not relevant to me.

Went to Maxis Center to solve the issue but found out that sms from five digit numbers starting with 6 like 62003 are unblockable. WTF?

They said there was nothing they could do and I just had to accept that it is the way it is. The best suggested solution is to just ignore the sms and delete it. Tiu!

Do you have sms spam issues too? Did you solve it? How?

Lim Guan Eng Refuses To Spend RM100, 000

lim guan eng

KUALA LUMPUR, 17 Mac (Hrkh) – Kerana enggan membelanjakan RM100 ribu, Ketua Menteri Pulau Pinang, Lim Guan Eng lebih rela tinggal di sebuah rumah berusia milik bapanya.

Naib Presiden PAS, Haji Mohamad Sabu menceritakan perkara itu selepas bertemu dengan Setiausaha Agung DAP itu di Pulau Pinang baru-baru ini.

Beliau ke pulau itu baru-baru ini kerana hendak bertemu Lim untuk berbincang beberapa perkara mengenai kepentingan bersama kedua-dua pihak.

“Oleh kerana beliau sibuk, beliau meminta saya menemuinya kira-kira pukul 10.00 malam hari itu.

“Tahu di mana Guan Eng nak jumpa saya? Di restoran McDonald,” kata Mohamad Sabu yang mula mengenali Lim dengan lebih dekat ketika sama-sama di tahan dalam Operasi Lallang 1987 lalu.

Naib Presiden PAS itu juga lebih selesa bertemu di tempat terbuka kerana “tidak ada apa yang hendak dirahsiakan”.

Bagaimanapun, katanya, Ketua Menteri Pulau Pinang itu kemudiannya memberitahu pertemuan itu tidak dapat diadakan di tempat terbuka itu atas nasihat pihak keselamatan.

Memahami perkara tersebut, beliau terus menuju ke rumah di mana Lim tinggal.

“Di rumah, dia biasa sahaja dengan “seluaq katok” (seluar pendek). Bila saya tengok keadaan rumah yang berusia tempat dia tinggal, saya tanya dia, kenapa tak pindah ke rumah rasmi Ketua Menteri?

“Dia (Lim) jawab: ‘Susahlah, kalau nak pindah kena perbaiki. Terpaksa belanja sampai RM100 ribu. Takkan saya nak belanja duit rakyat sampai RM100 ribu untuk kepentingan saya’

“Saya rasa sangat terharu mempunyai kawan seperti itu,” kata Mohamad Sabu.

Walaupun perkara itu bukanlah perkara baru baginya, memandangkan Mursyidul Am, Tuan Guru Datuk Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat yang menjadi Menteri Besar Kelantan sejak 1990 memilih kehidupan yang sederhana, begitu juga Presiden PAS Tuan Guru Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang ketika menjadi Menteri Besar Terengganu dahulu, Naib Presiden PAS itu tetap merasa bangga dengan sikap sederhana dan rendah diri Lim itu.

“Saya bangga kerana dia takut nak belanja wang rakyat RM100 ribu sedangkan Perdana Menteri gasak sehingga RM15.81 juta untuk ubahsuai kediaman rasminya Seri Perdana di Putrajaya.

“Saya yakin, Menteri-Menteri Besar kita yang lain (dari PAS dan KeADILan) juag akan memilih jalan kehidupan yang sederhana yang sama seperti dua Tok Guru kita, jauh lagilah menyalahgunakan harta kerajaan,” katanya.

Sementara itu, Bernama melaporkan, kata-kata pertama Lim semasa mengadakan sidang media di Pejabat Ketua Menteri di Tingkat 28 Komtar ialah: “Saya rasa seperti melangkah masuk ke kandang singa”.

“Saya tidak menyangka dapat duduk di kerusi ketua menteri ini kerana pernah dipenjarakan. Ia merupakan transformasi sebenarnya dan pengalaman baru bagi saya,” Bernama memetik Lim.

Sebelum mengangkat sumpah, Lim berkata beliau dapati lebih ramai pemberita menghadiri sidang akhbarnya sekarang dan “saya diterangi lampu-lampu kamera”.

Dalam kenyataan kemenangannya, Lim berkata, “Kami gembira dengan kemenangan ini dan berjanji tidak akan mengecewakan penduduk Pulau Pinang.

“Kami mahu menegaskan bahawa kerajaan baru adalah untuk rakyat Malaysia daripada semua kaum. Kami ada bersikap adil, saksama dan tidak mendiskriminasikan mana-mana kumpulan – memberi bantuan kepada semua yang memerlukan.

“Penduduk Pulau Pinang yang berbakat akan mendapat peluang saksama daripada gabungan parti pembangkang itu yang disatukan menerusi kecintaan terhadap demokrasi dan menghormati hak asasi manusia, kekaksamaan politik dan keadilan sosioekonomi,” katanya sambil mengesa orang ramai supaya “menghormati hasrat rakyat”.

Good morning Kedah, Penang, Perak, Selangor, KL, Kelantan!

I believed that my 1 vote can make a difference and it did.

You 3 selfless guys inspired my life for the past 2 weeks :

  • Thanks Raja Petra. Malaysia-Today.net raised awareness nationwide. You yourself went to the streets and took the ceramahs by storm.
  • Thanks Anwar for your funny speeches. Shit. Thinking about Samy or Rafidah makes me laugh. You are the only one who can unite the opposition parties together. Please stay healthy for at least the next 10-20 years. My Chinese friends and I support you too.
  • Thanks Jeff Ooi. You had about 5% of voice left from your gruelling campaign all around Penang. We know you fought hard. From a fellow blogger to another, congrats!

I’m so proud to be a Malaysian.

I love you, Penang!

First Voting Experience

It was pretty hot. I woke up at around 10. Took my camera and went out to my voting centre, SMK Hamid Khan. I walked to the side gate but it was closed. Shit. I had to walk all the way back up to the main entrance.

hamid khan

There were cars parked on the roadside.

cars

Around the compound of the school.

cars 2

There were only a few people around.

few

It took me only a minute to get to the room number distribution booths, the place where they tell you your voting room.

room number

I was given the number 10.

10

When I reached my classroom, there were only 3 people standing in line.

3 ppl

When you go in, you’ll have to give your I.C. to the person sitting at the desk. The girl will then check the name on the I.C. to the electoral roll for that particular room. If it matches, she’ll read it out loud to the people sitting across her.

girl

If it matches, you are given 2 colored papers. Orange for parliament and light brown for state.

ballot boxes

I ticked one of each, folded it twice and stuffed it into the ballot boxes.

The entire process took me only 5 minutes. And that was my first ever voting experience.
