YTL is diversifying into the ISP business. 4G to be exact. So we already have a handful of providers and now comes another one. Some speculate that there will be a price war looming once YTL gets up to speed. But can we directly see internet fees dropping below RM100 and yet maintain high speeds? If there is one thing that all of our ISP are short changing us is consistency. Most will claim at best effort basis and that happens how often?
There is a simple problem. There is only so much the market can hold and with YTL the market becomes more brittle. Very few have multiple internet accounts... perhaps to most the minority only subscribe services from 2 ISP. One for home use and the other for mobile use. I know many can't leave home without checking on their various farms and armies online. Owh not to forget the cam-whoring blogger types.
But if there is a scant possibility that internet fees dip far below the RM100 per month for 1Mb all the better. Then perhaps we could pressure the providers to remove the stupid fair usage policy? Even if majority of us do not exceed the allocation but it would be nice to know that it is no longer there. Let the ISP fight~ then we shall wait and see who has the most bang for our Ringgit.

So, they claim it can speed up approval and get the foreign funds in faster and fatter than ever before. Certainly it all sounds pretty dandy if you ask me. But how would it improve employment of the locals? Just like how the MSC does not place a limit on the hiring of foreign skilled workers to a certain degree kills the market for our locals. On top of that for the same position locals are paid marginally lower than their foreign co-workers.
For the amount of investment sure translates to higher GDP and most importantly GDI to certain extremities but would it translate to the little ones? And hopefully the new act specific for this would and should impose such rules to limit the intake of foreign skilled workers and give locals a far better chance. Not only business should have higher co-ownership with locals but also covers the entire workforce in key departments and positions.

Apparently a DAP veteran has used an Exco member's letter head to make recommendation letters in awarding contracts amounting to a total of RM1million over the past year. I suspect even the BN buggers have been doing this for ages. Biler nak cekup mereka pulak?

Authorities discovered a whole big drum of Meth Oil. The big question is how the hell the couple obtained such a large amount of Meth Oil?
North Corridor Economic Region gets boost
RM800++ million being dumped to stir the NCER. That much of money and only 1000 jobs? We need more than that.

You should see this.....................
The advert below, inserted in , costs about RM10 million, artwork and all, and was paid for by the Chief Minister of Sarawak’s business outfit.
Malaysians may be quite surprised to know that the First Lady is no longer the Raja Permaisuri Agong, as in the Federal Constitution of Malaysia, but Rosmah Mansor, as in the Prime Minister’s wife.
Article 32 of the Federal Constitution of Malaysia says:
In short, Article 32.2(2) of the Constitution means that the Raja Permaisuri Agong is the First Lady of Malaysia. And it costs just RM10 million to amend the Federal Constitution of Malaysia to make the wife of the Prime Minister the new First Lady.
Now this is a shocker.... PR disaster or it is on purpose?

I have changed cell-phone plans over the past 5 years more times than an apple tree can grow apples in a year. This is all so I can save a few bucks off from the cheapest cellphone plans. To a certain extent my manual labour seemed to work.
Don't let me get to my credit card bills. Owh, they are just a pain. Wondered why I had to pick up the cards in the first place. Perhaps I was just naive and jumped the gun when picking a plan. Should have just compared credit card plans and see which offers the best rates and service. But yeah how could one digest all the information and filter in their heads on which is good or not? Who reads the fine prints?
So as I was ambling along online finding good deals being the cheapskate and underpaid I am, viola! I might have just found the solution. Now why haven't someone thought something like Billshrink earlier? Finally someone with the same thoughts as I did but actually made a service out of it to serve the greater good. Looks like I can now keep my hard-earned underpaid money!
