I believe…

I believe, in random order, that…

  1. Prostitution should be legalised and governed in Malaysia.
  2. Most people are super kind and asshole in the same time, including myself.
  3. But some of the top persons in Malaysia look like latter in #2 no matter how I see him/her.
  4. The best way to make money online is to teach people how to make money online.
  5. The best way to survive cancer is to stay away from chemotherapists and look for cure elsewhere.
  6. Malaysians should be given the rights to choose their religion in regard of their parents’ belief and race.
  7. Most politicians (and I’d say 99%) in Malaysia are not helping our country at all. I think it’d be better for us as a country to have one very smart dictator, rather than 500 mediocre ministers.
  8. Mark Zuckerberg is one of the 100 smartest person in the world. So are Sergey Brin and Larry Page.
  9. “Team work” is often overrated.
  10. 9 out of 10 successful make money online gurus are just good salesmen, if not good conman.
  11. 7 out of 10 successful social media gurus are just good salesmen, if not good conman.
  12. You can never please everyone, but you can piss everyone at the same time quite easily. So it’s still better to stay low and reserve yourself in most situations.
  13. Arrogant people were brought up by arrogant parents; so are polite and respectful ones.
  14. Success = 10% luck + 40% brain + 50% determination! Strong heart FTW.
  15. iPhone is greater than Samsung phones in many ways.
  16. I can grow stronger physically, lose weight, master an art skill, and get smarter with computer and business whenever I want.
  17. But I can never play guitar well.
  18. Human, as a whole, is a disgrace to the mother earth. How we developed ourselves into today’s society made us a pretty sick parasite.
  19.  Karma and reincarnation.
  20. Only 3 persons in this world would finish reading my 20 points – my brother Low Kei and two friends – Wong Dog and Ah Yap (Tell me I’m wrong if you are #4).

Gotta go!

Bucket list #3: Draw something everyday for 30 days

This is part of a bigger post, check out Bucket List 2015 for all my self-assigned challenges.

Started this challenge on April 10th. Signed up and attended my first oil painting class (something totally new to me). I’ll be painting in oil every Thursday for the next 5 months. Will add in more photos of my doodles and art work as log in later stage.

Update April 24th

It’s harder than I thought. Half of the time I just don’t have the mood to settle down and spend time on the paper. This challenge is going to take more than 30 days to complete.

Bucket list #2: Stay as fit as possible for 30 days

This is part of a series post that I started early 2015. You can read the other inputs of my bucket list here.

Why do so?

Stronger and healthier body, better basketball game, and for fun.

The plan

I thought setting an end goal wouldn’t be helpful at all. After all experts said the best way to hack (and to sustain) any sort of growth is to focus on the system. So what I did was tweaking my life and changing my habits instead of putting up a “lose X kg of weight” or “grow X kg of muscles” in 30 days.

To do this, I considering my lifestyle thoroughly and set five simple rules/exercise routines  –

  • Kettlebell swings – 75/100/125 rep  x 3 times per week
  • 90 sec air bench + 60 sec plank – (2+3) x 4 times per week
  • Jog/cycle/basketball – 4 times per week
  • No calorie drinks (anything with sugar in it) for 30 days
  • No white food (noodles, bread, rice) after 18:00

10 money lessons I wish my children will learn

Sadly there were very little taught about money during my school time and most info I learned about money when I was a kid was misleading and incorrect.

I do not mean that I am done learning (no way!) by writing this post; nor do I think I am 100% right. It’s just that it took me a long way to unlearn and relearn lots of things about money and since I’m an expecting father now so I guess it’s good to lay out some keynotes I learned about money – hopefully one day my children can benefit from this. I lived decades without knowing money really is and still think about “how nice would it be if someone can tell me this earlier!” now; I don’t want my children to have such regrets.

So kid, here come some lectures.

Do you a need new SEO plan for HTML5?

HTML5 is not officially released yet but we are already seeing plenty of early adapters these days. There are plenty of viral blogposts trumpeting how ‘cool’ your websites can be with HTML5 (like this one, for example) but I don’t see many that talks on the impact HTML5 will do on search engines and SEO. To proceed, we need to first understand how HTML5 might change the way search engines look at a web page.

How HTML5 improves search engine’s understanding of the web?

Apart from being concise and able to create cool on-page visual stuffs, HTML5 improves communication between a web page and the machines (search engines, in our case).

New element in HTML5

First we have bunch of new elements like <aside>, <article>, <hgroup>, <footer>, etc in HTML5 that will help search engines to have better understanding on webpages’ segmentation*; which in turn, allow search engines to decide where to look for the main content and spending less resources in indexing less-important sections like footer and advertisement.

(*Side note: It’s no secret that Google can already do this for a lot of websites (blog especially) nowadays but it definitely will do better with the help of HTML5.)
