NetPay Refund

Have you ever buy something from belong using Net Pay?

I do and unfortunately the seller refund my money due to no stock of the item that I bought. I bought using my credit card.

The seller inform me on 17/12/2014 regarding the refund, he apologise and then inform me that he has contacted Net Pay to inform regarding the failed buying process.

Net Pay send me email (after I sent an email to them asking about my refund) and they said they have received the info from seller regarding the refund. They will process the refund within 14 days.

Now almost 14 days and I have call CIMB credit card dept to ask regarding the refund money and they said they have not yet received any transaction into my account from Net Pay.

Have anyone experience refund from Net Pay? How long does it take for my money to be refunded?

I really want my money back because it is a credit card transaction. Now with the current outstanding balance, interest will go up. I do not want unnecessary interest payment to my ba…

It's A Sick World: Reality Show vs Reality

Have you all watched Truman Show? Its a good Jim Carrey Movie. For those who still not watched it, be warned.. This is going to be a spoiler.

That movie was released some years ago, i believe in the 1998 if I am not mistaken. I am still young at that time and there was no cinema in my hometown thus I have to watch it using the old Video Cassette.

That movie was released way before reality TV become a sensation all over the world. Way before The first season of Survivor in Pulau Tiga Sabah. During that time, we all never knew what a reality show really are. For us, everything inside the television or movie is a good show for entertainment. Thus, at that period of time, Truman Show can be very mind challenging and exciting to see.

That movie is showing how in the 'future' entertainment has changed where people want more reality than just a show. Thus, they chose a guy name Truman (Jim Carrey) to be pictured live on television 24 hours a day 7 days a week from the time he was st…

Eminem Shady XV : Review

The newest album for Eminem entitled Shady XV. 
Its not an Eminem album per say. It was more like a compilation of various artist, some old song also included inside the album. 
It is more like the previous Re-Up album by Shady Records. 
So after breaking the world record for the fastest selling album of all time for Eminem Marshall Mathers LP, multiple grammy awards, even an Academy Awards, how did Eminem keep up with this world wear music now are dominated by Korean Pop Music culture. 
People are forgetting Rap and hip hop music. Thanks to the new hip hop artist / rappers, now nobody know what is rap anymore. What people know about hip hop is bling bling, big booty, whore, alcohol, sport car and club. Not a bit of real hip hop where the rappers were talking about how they keep up and struggle in their life to get what they have nowadays and telling a story so that people can learn on what mistakes they have done. 
Whatever you are doing, Hip Hop nowadays are getting sicker, so that…

The New Macbook of Mine

This will be the first entry I wrote from my New Macbook Air. I have been out of proper notebook since a few months ago. Finally....

I feel so alive now. Haha. Typing is so comfortable using this notebook.

I am not sure yet what I am going to do with this new Macbook of mine. I am very new to Mac OS appearance but I am used to Ubuntu so i guess I am OK since Ubuntu and Mac OS have somehow a similar feeling to it.

I will try to keep this notebook as long as I can before I get a new one. Surely. Its expensive lah...

UPS Apple And The Delay In Sabah 2

Finally, my package arrived today. After 2 days of agonizing pain of waiting, suddenly I received a call from Pos Malaysia saying that my package from Singapore has arrived.

A bit weird because it was supposed to sent by UPS but now it was at Pos Malaysia office. I did not bother to ask further question, I just want my Macbook Air.


So here it is..
I am still waiting for NetPay to refund my money.....

At least one problem solved.


I will not forget this experienced from buying using UPS. Not recommended.

UPS Apple And The Delay in Sabah

I want a Macbook. Instead of buying from Apple online store, I initially chose to buy it from the lelong.com.my. A famous site for online shopping in Malaysia. I have a thought that if I buy from Apple Online store, it can take up to one week before it arrived. That is my experienced when I order Ipad 2 a few years ago.

Unfortunately, My order was out of stock from a seller in Lelong. With a bit of this and that, they refunded my money using Netpay and now i have a problem, Net pay took 14 days to process that refund.

With that frustration, I have to turn back to Apple and order a Macbook from them. I guess better be safe rather than sorry. So i order on Dec 17 from Apple online Store Malaysia. No problem in ordering. My Macbook was in stock. So perhaps I will get my Macbook earlier than what I have plan.

It was shipped a day after I order it. Very fast. Impressive as expected from apple.

Trouble comes later. Apple using UPS nowadays to ship their item. Everyday UPS updated my trackin…

Chili and Me

I didn't eat spicy food. I was born in a family where spicy food is like a taboo. We rarely cook hot food. And we do, I am the one who usually suffer from stomach ache. 
Someone told me when I was in Med school that I am allergic to chili. I am not sure whether that condition exist or is it everyone will have stomach ache after eating a certain amount of spicy food. 
I do love spicy food but I can't tolerate it. Not until a few weeks ago. I started trying to eat something in a restaurant called Nando's Chicken where they offer a variety of spiciness grade. From non spicy to Extra hot. So why not? I venture to a level of mild hot. It does not taste hot at all but from that momment I started to realize that there is a kind of chemical reaction that cause my brain to say that hot food is delicious. 
I started to cook half of my meal involving bird eye chili which are abundant in our country in general. It does taste nice. It give a comfort warm feeling inside. Best ate durin…

Old Computer and Ubuntu 14.10 LTS

I own an old Compaq presario laptop. After a few years, as expected, it broke a wait 4-5 minutes for it to start, and another 3-4 minutes to wait for it to shut down.

I could not take it anymore. My plan now is to get myself a macbook air or any Window 7 ultrabook ( i want super portable laptop to get work done on the way). However, a decent Window 7 ultrabook cost almost RM5000. A macbook air entry level cost around RM3000-Rm4000. I am very tight on budget now.

I want to get some speed into my laptop. I can't upgrade its RAM anymore, and some suggesting SSD, I do not know whether this Netbook can support that.

I make some decision to change the OS to a more lighter one, and free. Yes, Ubuntu. After a struggle for a few hours trying to figure out how to install Ubuntu, I finally made it. Ubuntu installed. Then i struggle for another few hours tuning the setting to make my laptop usable. Simple setting like brightness, saving battery setting,enabling flash, installing VLC, installi…

Non citizen in Sabah

Probably you heard the issue of illegal immigrant in sabah is just a hoax or propaganda did by someone for their own benefit. Nope. Its real. I am not sure why nobody bother about this but I believe this land will be own by imkigrant in the future. I pray so that will not happen but at this rate, without serious intervention by authority, it might happen eventually. Working in a field where my customers or patient ( I am a doctor), came from everywhere does not matter they are legal or illegal. If i work in school or police station maybe i would not see such people but in hospital, eventually they will have to come for their health concern. Most of these people live in a remote area where police or immigration officer would not dare to go. When they come to hospital, usually in bad condition because of their poor living condition. Infection is the most common causes for them to go out from hiding. I did ask one of them regarding their village, how many houses? Some even claimed more t…

I need Mac!

I cannot do my work anymore with my phone or tab. I really think that somebody need to create a tab or a phome that can be used to get thing done....wait..someone just did that. Yes. Microsoft has offered a new kind of tablet that can be used as a laptop. They name it surface pro. A tab that pack the power of a laptop. Running on windows 8.1 and whatever great tech thing they put inside that machine. However, it does not come with a keyboard. Keyboard sell separately. That surface thing already cost rm3500+ and you need to buy rm350+ keyboard to go along with it. You cant buy cheap fake keyboard because they way they create the thing was already equipped with a keyboard and some jokers decided to sell they keyboard separately. Hell no.And there is one phone that can make my work done. I have used it before but the company building that phone is going down to the ground. Its blackberry. I know a blackberry really can make stuff happen but the lack of apps and still...some limitation on…

Putatan Platinum Update: Moving in

I lost the war.  That is all I Could say after a few month trying to fight for my justice regarding late payment fee from this apartment developer.  I have paid a sum of 8000+ for the late payment fee.  Easy money for them developer.  I am pretty much broke and trying to start back from zero.  I have started to keep some money to buy furniture when all my saving before was used for the late payment fee.  The best thing is I now already have my own home apartment.  Haha.  Moving in is on the way.  Slowly fill in the interior with some furniture and later I may live there permanently,  or,  until i found a new and better apartment. I can see that some people still standing still and refused to pay the late payment fee.  I do not know what to say but they are right to fight for their right,  but somehow the one we are fighting is an enemy that will never be defeated.  There is a lot of them in Malaysia.  Seriously. I am not giving up,  if there is a way for them to get their right back, …

Pregnant before marriage

Most people do not want to talk about this.  Some even try to deny the subject,  imagining a perfection in the society.  We are living in a muslim community and as a Muslim community we are perfect.  They are not wrong but they are not completely right.  It's happening and we are no perfect than any other society.  In fact we could be worse if nobody address the issue.
I have seen a lot of pregnancy before marriage in my practice. No, not non muslim, they were muslim.  In fact half of them I non Muslim and half of them are muslim.. What religion have to do with this?  For me religion only play a small role in prevention of this subject but in reality and statically speaking they are no difference at all whether you are muslim or not. The issue rises due to lack of education.  I'm not saying sexual education alone but all other education factor play important role here.  Even education in religion would help reducing the number of premarital pregnancy.  I m not going to talk a…

Sipitang: A Town Of Beauty Or Disease?

The most important thing to prevent diseases is hygiene. A single most important measure to control the spread of infection is by practicing hand hygiene. It is clearly stated from perspective of science and any religion that everyone must keep everything clean to keep germs away.

2 years in Sipitang working as a medical officer, I have witness myself that this town has an ugly side behind the beautiful beach and its culture. Diseases keep spreading even no matter how much medication we dispense from the hospital. Non communicable diseases is a norm everywhere but what bothers me is the infectious diseases that has no ending.

I came to believe that the health system in this town need to be upgraded so that we can reach more people. The more we can reach, the more I realize that infection is still a burden in this district of Sipitang. Where does the infection came from? Is it raining from the sky?

Most medical practitioner will laugh with that sentence. Rarely diseases fall from the s…

Gaza vs Israel : Does not matter who you kill.

Malaysian as always will be the loudest people on the back and the quiet one when in front.

It was proven again when looking into the conflict between Gaza and Israel.

They shout, they cuss, they diss, they even destroy public and private property to show their support to Gaza.

Nevertheless, for non muslim Malaysian, they bash facebook, spam everything talking about how stupid muslim shout, cuss, diss, destroy public and private property and somehow they did not support Gaza entirely and some even support Israel.

Both are typical Malaysian. We will never get out from this mentality, and if someone did, he is a minority and need to be stop and isolated.

My opinion and view, it does not matter who kill who, both are wrong in killing people.

Obviously, Israel are inhuman by killing lot of children and innocence people, and in Gaza part or more to Hamas part, they also have blood in their hand.

What is wrong with Muslim now suddenly becoming like terrorist like what westerner envision bef…

Medical Officer Lunch

Ni District version. Sure I had my lunch when  I became medical officer(MO) myself.  Posted in District,  there must be a hell lot of time to spare.  Or is it.  Now my blackberry era is over.  My HTC One alarm clock bell rang.  Already snooze it for a few times.  Why is is so hard to wake up in the morning.  It's 6.30 am.  Had my shower,  cold shower.  My house's heater broke.  This old government house build for doctors are poorly maintained.  Perhaps no one stay here before me for quite sometime. That's what they said.  I'm fully prepared for work by 7.30am.  Life much better now.  I'm staying alone in this lonely house,  my wife will join me here in a few weeks time.  If she came,  maybe she can make me some breakfast.  I am on call so breakfast would not be a problem.  There will be breakfast prepared by kitchen hospital for oncall MO.  In a few minutes time,  I will arrived in hospital and I will enjoy my breakfast.  A thing that is rare during house officer e…

HOUSE OFFICER LUNCH

Can I remember my lunch during house officer time? 
Every morning at 5.30am, my alarm clock from my beloved BlackBerry phone rang( I missed BlackBerry era),  it's time to get up and start working again.  The water feel so cold even when the heater is on.  Taking shower with my eyes closed.  Put on my shirt,  pray,  lab coat ( when was the last time I wash that coat?).  Not a big problem,  I will change to a new one later at my hospital.
5.50am. Trained to do thing quick in just 20 minutes I'm off to work.  I will have my breakfast later in hospital. Luckily my house just a traffic light and 2 round about away from hospital, i will reach hospital at around 6.00 am. 
Work start at 6.30 am but when you start working at 6.30am, that means you are already late.  The heck to that,  I am off work at 12 midnight last night,  I don't care if  I am late or not in the morning!  Unfortunately,  I do care... With 70 patirents cranked up in the ward with us only  5 house officer,  …

No respect Religion

I am proud to be a muslim,  a sabahan muslim.  But to call myself a Malaysian Muslim,  I will have a second thought. Is there any difference between Sabahan muslim and Malaysian muslim?  Sabah is a part of Malaysia.  Why it should be different.  We all pray the same way.  Fast in the same month and celebrate eid together.  We read the same Holy Quran.  There is no difference. Why do the term sabahan muslim exist? I also don't know why.  But if someone came to Malaysia,  there will first encounter the Malaysian Muslim people then we  they travel to Sabah or Sarawak the game change.  As everyone knows,  Sabah and Sarawak consist of many ethnic which are not practicing Islam.  Historically,  Islam was not the official religion in these region.  Some way and somehow later,  Islam was accepted as the official religion of Malaysia and we all do not want any difference between Malaya and Sabah Sarawak.  We are one country after all.  But the way we were brought up and teach is different.…

Putatan Platinum Apartment: The Charges

I finally able to enter my house. Still under renovation, it basically empty with only electric and water. I could live with that. So I try staying there for 3 nights before I went on to my next trip to Kuching,Sarawak. Free place to stay, save money. I don't need TV or furniture. I just need a clean floor, a pillow and an electric fan to keep me cool. From my observation, this neighborhood is not the best neighborhood after all. There is a slum just beside this apartment area, and i do not know whether that slum looked village is even legal. The people there look illegal. One word to describe this place, it's overcrowded. With lots of shop and hypermarket (even a mall), everyday traffic are congested.Anyhow, the second day I'm in this apartment, the first thing I check is the mailbox. Wow, there are a lot of charges that i need to pay. Do i even own my own house apartment? I do not know. I feel like I'm renting in this place. There are services charges, sinking fun, f…

Hi again

Is blog even relevant nowadays? It used to be a fun tool to play. But with the development of social app like facebook, twitter, whatsapp, etc... Who read blog anymore? A primitive way of browsing with a browser and find a blog that you want to read. Who want to read a hundred words page anyway. Now even news getting shorter. Even for me myself i love to read those micro news. Just a paragraph straight to the content and a significant picture. Easier to read and get updated. Who even use browser today? You want to read new entry from your friend, facebook or twitter app is there. You want to view their pictures, there's instagram. You want to read news, there's an app for it. Everything has an app for it. Just like a presentation slide, if you ever had one, the most boring presentation is the one with less word. So if you had a thought, why do you blog about it? No one will read it. Just tweet it and it will reach thousand more than a few reading your blog. We cannot run away …

Putatan Platinum Apartment update (Enter house)

After a long battle waiting for a hope that someone would pay my late payment charge, it seem that the battle will no longer valid. Day by day the interest keep building up and becoming higher. I decided to pay developer the amount of money they wanted me to pay.

It was such a pain looking at my money disappear just like that in a second.

I am still waiting for reply from my bank but it seems that they also did not bother about it. So basically, I am the only one fighting the battle. The bank and the developer both did not help me a bit.

The only help I get is when the developer gave me 10 percent discount on that late payment interest. So basically I saved about RM800.

So, finally I get the key for my apartment. What a relieved. No need to bother anymore about all those stupid interest and everything.

I have my own basement car park slot, i have my access key, my mailbox, so relieved to have my own apartment now.

Otherwise, there are a lot of rules need to be followed while staying i…
