I would love to own a smart watch and you can browse them at Smartwatch where you can just click on the link above to find out more information. What’s more? They have a shopping cart and payment gateway to check out after you have done your online shopping. Using a safe and secure payment gateway, you can be assure of private and secure online purchasing and transaction and have the item or purchases delivered right to your door steps.
Shopping online is easy peasy, all at the touch of a keyboard and whipping out your credit card for the pertinent details. And voila! the transaction is done in a jiffy. I myself have had experience purchasing online like airline tickets, books, fax machine, printer, etc.
I lost my old iPhone 5 to a pick pocket at the escalator of First World Hotel, Genting Highlands. Not wanting to be left out in the family chat, I decided to buy a new iPhone 6 for $2,400 or so. The normal selling price in Malaysia is $2,702. Since mine is a Digi plan of $148 per month, I managed to get it cheaper than the normal price. But the caveat is that I have to subscribe for at least 2 years. Now, I have to be very cautious when going out especially when travelling on an escalator. My partner already noticed a foreigner with a head scarf with fair skin standing just one step below me and being very short, it is easy for her to lift up the handphone from my opened bag. Her boyfriend was behind my partner and he’s very tall. My partner immediately went up one step forward so as to prevent his wallet from being pick pocketed. They certainly choose easy targets and now I need to look behind my back very often every time.
Just last week, I sold all my stamps for $50 for over 400 pieces, still stuck to envelopes. As I don’t have time to separate them from the paper and arrange in an album, I decided to sell them in one shot without all the unnecessary hassle. I also have a standing order for postal stamps that as soon as they are out, I will be couriered by Pos Laju the new denominations in a complete set. Every month I have to top up about $102.50 to the postal order for this plan. I am still collecting stamps that arrive every week from the various suppliers for my boss’ business. They include tax invoices, bank statements, etc. Selling stamps online is easy peasy and I was also introduced to the Carousel app that can be installed on iPhones or other gadgets like Samsung, HTC, etc.
I listed my stamps still stuck to envelopes that were cut out as I don’t have time to soak them in water to separate them from the glued paper. I listed them in a website and after 5 minutes, received 2 missed calls from a potential buyer from Butterworth. I then returned the call after some time and found a buyer for my stamps. We will meet at McDonald’s Times Square and I hope he won’t negotiate too much less for them as they are more than 70. It is so easy to sell online by taking a good photo and have them listed via the internet.
On another note, I lose USD 30 due to binary options that I inadvertently signed up after watching a very convincing video. These are all scams, all out to make money out of you and not the other way round. They promise you 50% bonus, but after seeing the money bank into your binary options account, it quickly dissipates into thin air and you are left with your investments only. I have had enough of their shit and hope to close the account immediately.
I sold a book ’72 Amazing Ways to Internet Profits’ for a mere $8 after paying a whopping $56 for it! Well, there is too much hype and Patric certainly knows the psychology of selling, being a greeting card seller himself before his phenomenal rise to wealth via the internet. I read it only once but the title of the book certainly attracts much interests, despite the boring contents. There is nothing new to be learnt and that is why the big boys keep making crazy amount of money every day while the normal people like us struggle to put food on the table for our families. To some people, making tonnes of money seems to be the norm each day and they are jet setting to exotic destinations, taking up the entire bungalows for their families with swimming pool included and the best scenery of the beach, white powdery sand and the azure blue seas crashing onto the shores, giving out lots of negative ions in the process.

Currently I own an iPhone 5 and it has worked well with me. But the tech wizard in my tells me to upgrade to an iPhone 6 with fingerprint scanning for approval before it works. This is a very good security feature no found in the older models. In the meantime, you can check out Speck or get a new iPhone 6 Case or even iPhone 6 Plus Case.
Since it will take some time before I save enough to upgrade, I will still continue to use my iPhone 5 of which I have already bought the iPhone 5S Case. My boss is using a Samsung Galaxy S6 and he certainly needs Samsung Galaxy S6 Case or even Samsung Galaxy S6 edge Case.
Most of us tend to upgrade to the latest technology gadget as soon as it comes out and you will find long queues for those wanting to be the first to get their hands at the newest gadgets and gizmos.
Yesterday was Labour Day on May 1 which is a public holiday that is celebrated worldwide and it continues with the weekend right up to Monday, since Sunday is Wesak Day for the Buddhists. I just came back from a one night stay at Equatorial Hotel, Penang and enjoyed the buffet breakfast with a wide repertoire of selections to choose from. I think I might just skip dinner or have a very light dinner since I am still full now, with time approaching for dinner in just a few minutes.
The stay at the hotel including breakfast for two set us back by a whopping $400 plus, almost $500 with 10% service charge and 6% GST included. But the view of Penang Golf Course, formerly known as Bukit Jambul Golf Course was serene, dotted by lakes with water fountain right smack in the middle. The lawn is well tended and some golfers could be seen putting away with their caddy and buggy to move from one fairway to the other.
However, there was a long queue to check into the hotel yesterday and the service was rather slow, as observed. Apparently there was a new staff who knows next to nothing manning one queue and she had to ask for directions on the booking system. Otherwise, my short holiday was almost immaculate and enjoyable.
