Dictionary Make Easy.

Have you ever think to upgrade your English?
Do you satisfied with your effort regarding this matter so far?
Still got a problem with it?

Well, if you think that education is a life long learning.... I'm sure you're not an exam oriented people. Most of us always think that education is passing exam but certainly they're not. In my country, this scenario is clearly happened to the most of the graduates. They are lack of communication skill and I'm always wonder when it will stop.

Yeah... most of the graduates here face the same problem currently. The big problems comes out in the interviewing session. They can't speak in English properly and what I mean here is "they don't have enough confident (high confident) to do that". I'm not say that I'm an expert in English ... as I said before, I'm always wonder when it will stop.

My readers, live in a country like Malaysia was a great pleasure. Best chances will become a superb opportunity if you know how to manipulate it. Now why certain of the Malaysians feel that it's too hard to learn English? We're not the same country like 50 years ago. We already move to the new better living and knowledge is one of the "needs" that we're should looking for 24 hours a day. There is no reason for us to "honeymoon" anymore.

So, in order to learn an English.... we must know the solution first.
Look at your environment arounds you, are you in the middle of the "speaking english" person?
Do you live in the "zero knowledge" atmosphere?
Do you have any effort to make the English as your main language?
Or do you always speak Malay all over the time?

For me as an Education Counselor, nothing can stop me to learn English. Even sometimes my pronounciation was not so good, I'll try to make it better. Yes.... we must have the confident to say it and let the people around you correct it. Another thing is about our diction. Keep your dictionary whatever, wherever and whenever you go. Make it as your bestfriend and it will help you all the time. For me, learn a word for a day is better that nothing. Try to put yourself at one stage..... and make sure your confident level reached to the level that you're never think before untill you proud of yourself. This is what I'm did for the past 3 years and it's always been.

For the blogger, how about an online dictionary in your blog?
Do you think that it worth for us?
If you think so, maybe this is one of the best alternative that we can use.
Prepare an extra space on your site and place it aside so that you may use it all the time or at least, make a link to that site.
Copy and paste the code from this site and after that, it will become like this:

I hope this will help us to improve our English and for me, this is a good chance for me to coordinate my "english online class" for 2006. Yeah... 2006 is around the corner...!!

Ermmmm..... have you check your dictionary lately?

Stop smoking...yes, it isn't?

One of my friends said that he want to stop smoking soon and I know he really.... really ....serious about it. I can see that clearly when he wrote about this in his blog lately (he is a blogger indeed). Ermmm.... is it true that most of the blogger are a smoker? (ladies not in the list). Anyway, as a friend I hope he will get into it or at least, he will reduce his smoke cigarette on a daily basis.

I was a smoker before (for 2 years only) and the time I've got my last smoke is about 4 years ago (when I was a student). I still remember that time when we lived together in one nice apartment (rent apartment) in Malacca. There was 16 of us and we have around 14 smoker members in that apartment. The best thing is only 2 of us are non-smoker. That is me and my "bestfriend" named Wak Kerto. He is a Javanese from Batu Pahat and I really hope that I can meet him back one day. We just not seeing each other for 3 years already.

One day (in 1999), I was offered by one of my housemate to try some of the cigarettes. He said that "every man in this world must know how or what is the real taste of the cigarette"... "if not, he is not a real man!"....
That's make me more eager to try it and finally....! (you know what I mean).

After I tried so many type of cigarettes, I found that I'm only get into this brand (Mild Seven) and it's really suit me. Even it's not "hard" like the other's brand such as Surya, Gudang Garam, Dji Samsoo, Dunhill and etc.... it's already put myself in a "smoker" zone. Not like Wak Kerto, he is very straight on this. He will not smoke any cigarette and I believe that. He also said that if you're a smoker, you will transform the currently air pollution into a worst level and by that, please don't blame the factories around you.... Actually, you're "burning" yourself!.
What a nice say from him

And now, I've got nothing to do with this anymore. I'm fully "recovered". I don't have any intention with nicotine anymore and so the rest. Nicotine is a master addiction and I will prove it to you. Based on the statistic, it's shows that nicotine addiction is more difficult to beat than cocaine or heroin. It will give an effects to your psychology, mental side and your inner strenght.

So, got any intention to quit smoking right now?
Do you really want to make it real?
Do you ever think about your children's healthy?
Think.... think... think and keep think...!!!

The bad thing if you are a smoker... try not to say "quit smoking" in front of the non-smoker people. You know how tough it is and even you say that you're joking about it... well, you just did a good one...right..!!!???

Smokers and bloggers,
Let's take a look at the EB's list of Quit Smoking Reasons and here is some of its:
In the past few years I have begun to feel the physical effects of smoking for over 25 years. These symptoms include:

1) A pressure, heaviness, and often pain in my lungs in the morning.
2) Morning cough.
3) Loss of my singing voice.
4) Breathlessness in my reading voice.
5) Unpleasant irritation of the mucous membranes of my mouth.
6) General tiredness and loss of energy.
7) Headaches.
8) I realize that I need to take naps to combat the tiredness I feel because my body has to process all the poisons that cigs have.
8) Cigarette hangovers after late nights out.
10) The need to exercise early in the day, before having smoked a lot.
11) Waking up at night coughing or with tickles in my throat.

Are we ready to stop smoking now?

Password Manager From Santa?

Hello there,

Glad to be here back after not log in for a week. Definitely I'm not comfortable with my "working hour" lately and I hope, I will get my quality time back after this ( hope my manager will prove my leave application). It's too busy and there is a lot of things that I have to remember and to complete. And it means that I need to place my neuron association at the high level as it can be. Because at this stage, our brain has a lot of job to do right? How

Now, let's make things better.
Sometimes, we need an assistant to make our life easier because we can't do all the thing by ourselves. When it come to the internet-ing zone, it will place this situation to the different level. As an internet users, don't be too sure with our "job". Bear in mind that it is not an easy "job" anymore when it comes to the secret informations especially in a PASSWORD matter.

Yup... password is the most important part for the people who always get online. Either they get online or do the online business, PASSWORD is the "key to success". But, it depends on your own way/style. Keeping your password manually also is one of the good way but in the certain condition, that's not practical.

So in order to avoid any mistake, we need an assistant.... am I right?
But what kind of assistant that we're looking for?
Is it a Password Manager?
How do we know them?
Do we need to pay for them or their service?
How long they will give their loyalty?
Will they screw us back later...?

"Good imagination will bring us to the good answer"... I believe in that quote (personally).
And for this 2005 Christmas gift, maybe Santa's forgot to tell us that he already left some of his "things" behind. You may ask him about it, but I'm pretty damn sure he will not take it back. He's up there man...!

Allright, let me tell you the gift that Santa's left behind. This gift called RoboForm and he is the Password Manager that we're looking for. No need to pay or argue about his loyalty. If you want to own this Password Manager... that will be good step for you as a preparation for the 2006 online assistant.

RoboForm is an award-winning automated password manager and web form filler with some serious Artificial Intelligence.
| RoboForm has long been a leader in the field of password management and form filling software.

No 1 At Yahoo Search Engine?

It's sounds funny, isn't it?
Me myself also was shocked at first.
The question is when is the actual time it happened and how.
Anyway, this is good news for me and it will make my readers more easier to find me in this blogosphere.

Yesterday, I gave a check at my Extremetracking data. And later, I saw that there is one word at the searh engine's report regarding my name -ombak-. After I clicked at that link, it's really shocked man...!
I never thought that my name -ombak- will take place to be the 1st at the Yahoo Search Engine compared to the rest ombak's name. I still remember at the day first, I try to put my name -ombak- at the search engine but nothing happened. Not just Yahoo Search Engine, but to the all search engines that I know.

Then, it makes me more curious about this.
I try to put my name at the MSN Search Engine. Guess what?
It's nearly climb up to the 1st because -ombak- name just ranked at the 2nd. Wouldn't it be nice to see our name on the top of the search engine result?
But, I can't find my name at the first page of the Google's search engine result. Maybe, I have to improve more... more.... better regarding this. Unlike the fulltime blogger, it's gonna be easy for them.

Actually, -ombak- is my nickname.
And I used this name because I love to see the wave. Ombak in English means WAVE.
Why I choose this word as my nickname? Ermmm.... I never told anybody about this before but I'm willing to tell it now.
I choose this name because I want to make it as my "own shadow". It is known that -ombak- or -wave- will never stop his task to the beach right. That's sound positive to me. Never give up if you want to learn something. Like me, I never had any knowledge about computer and internet-ing's before. But I managed to learn it day by day and you can read it from my own experience here.

So, back to main topic.
I hope there will be a day where I can see my -ombak- name at the top of the big G (Google Search Engine) page results. I'm really sure the day will come sooner or later.
Same goes to Darren's (Problogger) name.
If you type the Darren's nickname -darren- at the Yahoo Search Engine, you will see it's located at the top but.... there is no more Darren's after that.
Now, try to put the -Darren- name at the Google Search Engine... it's quiet of mystery because his name stand at the 6th place. And it's more.... more.... weird if you put the -darren- name at the MSN Search Engine...!! No -darren- at all....?

Well my friends....
It's just a name and it has nothing to do with the traffic.
I just write it down here just because of my curiosity.
Because for me, if my nickname can make my readers easy to find me... it could be nice. The best thing happen to me when my nickname will bring my readers come to my site as easy as they can.. that's all.

Black Metal Ideology Sites?

"Do we need a Black Metal's music in our life?"

This is the "hot" question in the music arena lately. And it is too subjective for me to highlight it here in my blog. From the 1st day since I'm blogging, I never write anything about the music so far.... ermmm, maybe this is the first?

Black metal is a musical genre related to styles of heavy metal such as death metal. Some black metal fans, musicians and critics use a strict definition of the genre, though others view this as limiting and view black metal more as an artistic movement than a sub-category of popular music .
Anyway, as I said ... this is the subjective topic to be highlighted of. And I believe among the Black Metal's fans, they got their own definition and nobody can deny that. The definition that stated above is just an "outside" define about their music. But, do we know about their "life trend"? What is the "inner" religion that they're stick with?

If we look deeply more about this kind of "life trend" , surely we knew that this is a rubbish.
If we have our own religion (Christ, Buddha, Tao's, Islam or etc) definitily we will sing the "same song". We believe to our own God and the way of life. Nothing can stop our belief. Correct me if I'm wrong, all religions will drive their converters to the positive and healthy life.
....................................................same goes to them (that's why they're not believe to the God).

As a blogger, there is a lot of the Black Metal blog/website around us. For those who already have a family, make sure you tell your children about this kind of life trend via this music's genre. In a certain way, it might influence your children soon. In my country, this kind of "negative life trend" now already being a phenomenon. They got a lot of fans...!
And what makes me more hate to this Black Metal's is the "life trend" that they bring up together. It's so disgusting and annoying.

Have you ever heard about this Black Metal group like Deicide, Legion Of Doom and Mayhem?
If you don't, please be careful if you see your own son or daughter wear their shirt. Names like Benton, Brian Hoffman, Steve Ashem, Eric Hoffman, Per Yngve Ohlin and etc) was so famous amongs them. And this group was so strong in their "world" (metal's stream).
Take a look at this lyric:

"I killed Jesus,
Just to see him bleed on his pulpis throat,

I am EVIL,

I'm the Deicide and I killed the LORD,
No more reasons,
I will kill the world in another form,

I rule this world,

Arrggghhhhhh...!!! " ------- Benton (singer)-Deicide.

In one interviewed between Benton and a journalist before, he said that Satanic also is a way of life. Satan is not an ugly thing that we're thinking of. And then, he spread that idea in their songs. So, this is a STARTER for the Satanic Death Metal in the Black Metal's stream. It going worst , isn't it? I told you....

Ad'sense Sick During Christmas?

Has anybody notice about our ad'sense yesterday?
Is something going around here?
Or am I miss something important?

Yesterday was so different.
I found there is something fishy about the ad'sense. I'm noticed that the most weird thing happened for the last 2 days is about the ad's itself. I don't know what's the actual reason from Google.... all I know is about my latest adsense (mine) was shifted to the sofa, cushion, leather seat and etc. The truth is, there is no related ad's at all...!!

Then, I asked my best friend (Jamloceng) about this. To be honest, I really want to find out what is the actual reason. And guess what? What a shock. He told me the same thing...!! And then, I tried to investigate this "phenomenon"... ahaksss. From one website to another website..... from one blog to another blog.... untill the final stage.

And at night (last night), I got the answer. Maybe this is not the correct answer. But I can say that, this is the only logic reason that I have. You know what.... based from my "investigation", I found that there is something wrong with the Google's crawler. I made a comparison between "paid hosting user" and "free hosting user" and the truth is:
| " This "phenomenon" will involve the "free hosting user" only and not to the "paid hosting user". So if we're using the blogspot, be prepared. For the blogspot user, most of us will have this kind of "unrelate ad's". |

So, what's happened to the Google's crawler lately?
Is ad'sense assistant (crawler) sick?
Or it might be because of the Google's inner problem?
Why the "paid hosting user" freely out of this "phenomenon"?
Is the blogspot user will face this kind "unrelate ad's" again?
If yes, why...?
Is this mean the blogspot user don't have any longer priority?
What if Google's forfeit their ad'sense programme suddenly?

Can someone answer that ....?
C' mon.....!!!

p/s: Or this is a "Christmas thing" from Google?....LOL!

Bollywood and Hollywood

How to describe the "middle" word between the title for this posting?
Are you in the Bollywood side or Hollywood side?
Which one do you prefer?

Bollywood has a very different sphere if we want to compare of. It's a musical sphere industries and there is nothing to do with the Hollywood influenced.
Let's recape the Bollywood's history.

At the turn of this century, when the country was poised for major social and political reforms, a new entertainment form dawned in India-the Cinema. The first exposure to motion pictures which India received was in 1896, when the Lumiere Brothers' Chinematographe unveiled six soundless short films at Watson Hotel, Esplanade Mansion, Bombay on July 7. And the first exposing of celluloid in camera by an Indian and its consequent screening took place in 1899, when Harishchandra Bhatvadekar (Save Dada) shot two short films and exhibited them under Edison's projecting kinetoscope. [via]

Now, what I mean with the musical sphere just now is the songs that existed in the Bollywood's!
This is so... so... so... different with the films industries that've been conducted in every part of this world. And if we want to talk about the musical part in the Bollywood's zone... definitely it will point us to the Hindustan's song. Yes... it's Hindustan song...!! It's seems like a "haunted song" for the Bollywood's fans.

Names like Amitabh Bachan, Shashi Kapoor, Aishwarya Rai and Shah Rukh Khan were so legendary in the Bollywood history.
In Malaysia, you can feel this sphere everywhere. Once this sphere turn out to the "phenomenon", you will hear all the Hindi's song (Hindustan) all over the place such as supermarket, hypermarket and also at the departmental store!

But, there is something that "naturally" happened in this industries. In order to tackle the viewers and the audience, Bollywood's will placed their fans to the another stage of belief. The "not logic" sense that's supposed in will be thrown away...!
Let me give you an example about the fight scene between the "hero" and his 30 "enemies" at one time (with a hockey stick a their hand)...!! Guess who will win?
Hah.. hah... hah.... you knew it right?

But how the Bollywood still can inject the best outcome in their film industries?
From what I've seen and what my mother said, the "succed-source" that they put all the time in their film industries is the "family relationship" value. And I agreed with that 100%.
In order to for me to prove it, you must watch this film and later, tell me.
Correct me if I'm wrong... you may cry when this story reach at the climax part.

Now, let's talk about the Hollywood.
Opsss.... everybody know it right..!!
Even Hollywood also comes with their "not logic" sense, I admit that I love to watch their film even most of the scene comes from the computer. Music is universal right, same goes to the film.

Anyway, I should highlight here that the musical sphere also existed in the Hollywood, but that was a long... long... time ago (broadway). Compare to the currently needs, Hollywood's have to give more concentrate on the "urban" style.
And now, I'm still waiting the right time for me to watch the King Kong at the cinema...!

Wanna be my date?

Web Detective

It's been a while since I posted my latest article today. It make me think deeply about the relation about myself and my readers.
In my previous posting ( Love me... love me not?), I did mentioned about the loves feeling. Seems like this matter makes me more curious about it. There is so many question mark in my head right now. Opsss I'm not ask you to be a web detective...LOL.

What if someone email you and he/she want to get to know you better?
What will you do?
What will you say?
What will you deny?
Believe it or not, b'logosphere will place us at another level of bonding. And nobody can't deny that.
So the question is, are we ready for that?
According to the Internet Survey, most of the bloggers will take the responsibility for their own articles. And this type of webbie/b'logger normally "stayed" in the "paid-hosting user" category.
Stay with me, I will explain it later.

In another case, what if the blogger is a "free hosting user" category like me?
Am I not honesty enough with my article?
Can anybody deny that?
Does anybody still trust me?
If they trust me, what is the proof?
Where do I live? Who am I?
What the hell I'm doing with my article?
Is it legal or not?
Who wil take the responsibility if someone's out there getting influenced by my articles?

Let's get back to the "paid hosting user" category case.
There is some facts that "they" belief with this category and most of them agreed with it.
Is it true?

I try to find the answer and maybe this is the only answer that I can share with.
However, I hope that you will like it and please do not hesitate to give your own opinion here.
What I can say order to make it look nice+honest.... the "paid hosting user" category already showed it's credibility and more professional+legal. And I will not deny it...! Yup, I agreed.

Let me show you an example of "true fact" about this "paid hosting user" category.
Try assume that this blog (url); [] has shifted -----> to -----> [].
What's your say?
Am I showing you my honesty? My dedication? My hope? And my belief?
Of course...!!! But how do I know and what's the proof?
Make it clear here.

Then, try put my own b'log url ("free hosting user"-category-) --> [] at the space given. I'm sure you will got nothing right?
Now put another's url ("paid hosting user"-category-) --> [].

Definitely you will see the full adress of the webbie/b'logger. Does it showed you the "true fact" about him/her?
It's all stated in that site. Nothing to loose and nothing to hide. No need to lie and no need to screw up! But sometimes, it's also depend on the M.O.U between the webbie/b'logger and the hosting company.... coz' some of the "true fact" are "confidential".

At this time, all I can say that I'm on my way to have my own website.
It's just a matter of financial and budget. But if you want to support me, donation will be just fine..... just point your browser at the donate button on the right bar.
Opsss.... one more thing, I'm always appreciate my reader's belief eventhough they are not web detective...!

Love me... love me not?

The Christmas is just around the corner. For all the readers, I just wanna wish all of you "Merry Christmas" and "Happy New Year"....! Ho.. ho...ho... and may God bless you all.

Ahakssss... is it to early for me to wish it to all my readers?
Well, it's not for me. I really want to say it because I'm afraid I cannot do so. I was too damn busy lately. This school's holiday really make me exhausted all the time. Yeah... as an Education Caunsellor, this is the busiest time in my life.

Celebrate the festivals e.g (Deepavali, Chinese New Year and of course Christmas!) is so meaningful for me as a Malaysian. Grown up in this multi-racial country always makes me realised that "love" is the important thing. It is not easy to built up a love between us, but it is so easy to make someone hates us! But the way that people in this country sharing their loves almost indicates peace to all of them. Love is all around I right..!!??

What is the meaning of love?
Is it a normal word in your life?
Is it a jokes for you?
Or is it the very... very... very... important word to you ?!!

If you choose the last one, definitely you are the caring person. It's a nature as human itself to say it when they feel someone's touch their heart especially when they're in love. The feeling was so great and so wonderful. It can't be explained in a single word. If all the people in this world know about the true meaning of the love, I will pray to the God so that He will give me another 100 years more for my life....!!

Either a blogger or a reader, the love will always remain among us.
"Wasn't it so amazing when the "love" appear at the time where we never know each other but we still keep in touch together?"

How to describe it?
If you want to know what it the love deeply, why not try to "spell" the "LOVE" with your true feeling first?

C' mon....!! Let the love's alive around us...!!

Journal Of Adsense.

Don't tell me about adsense anymore...?

Nope, I'm still in the learning curve. To the webmaster of the, I just wanna say thank you for your comment in the Darren's website ( regarding my adsense's journal.

Even the "hook" was quiet simple, but now I can see clearly here and I'm also admit that maybe all the blogger should have some kind of this "hook" in their own b'log. The "true thing" is that, all the stories are came from my own experience since the day one. And I'm glad that you also did the same thing in your b'log by using the "My Journal" word.

Anyway, what I want to highlight here is all the stories cannot be done in a day. The "right man" that always acting as my adsense's guru is my friend named Mr Sid. You might point your browser to the "Jam Loceng" word at "My Links" on the right side of my bar or just click here.

To be honest, let me list down all my Adsense Make Money' journal here. It was 13 episodes of them:

True Story 1.
True Story 2.
True Story 3.
True Story 4.
True Story 5.
True Story 6.
True Story 7.
True Story 8.
True Story 9.
True Story 10.
True Story 11.
True Story 12.
True Story 13.

Ermmm....what if Google's stop this Adsense programme suddenly...!!???
What da ya think? Got any idea...?

Jokes v/s Laugh?

What do you think of my posting this time...?
Is this too much for the blogger to read? What the hell I'm doing at this time, just to mention about JOKES and LAUGH?
I don't care if you said I'm a crazy blogger at this time ( it's already 1:23 a.m in the morning).

Personally, I am a funny ( am I funny?) guy in my area. I think so...ahaksss.
Sometimes, we feel happy when we can make peoples happy.
If we can make people laugh, that's good...isn't it?
But at the same time, do we need to make a jokes just to make it happen?

In my life... I always feel that when we're making the people laugh, certainly they will like us. But when we have our own problem inside, nobody will cares...!!
This is not fair and basically, it was sooo...sooo...sooo... so not good.
Is this situation ever happened to you before...?
If you said yes, maybe we can share this moment together (let's think about that for 15 second now!)

My friends,
I need to make myself clear about the science of laugh. And so far, I believe this article will make us more knowledgeable specially for "behind the laugh and jokes".
Let's take a look:

Madan Kataria, a Mumbai based physician, has blazed a trail of laughter across the globe. The "merry medicine man from India" and a pioneer of the laughter clubs movement in the country, he is also the Founder-President of the Laughter Club International, with 70 branches in the city and more than 400 nation wide. The concept has generated interest in major cities of the world from New York to Hong Kong, Italy to Tokyo. Dr. Madan Kataria in a detailed e-mail to this correspondent, elaborated on the multiple uses of this "wonder medicine" in improving physical and mental well-being.

*** The world has become serious, he rues. The media constantly bombards us with bad news and negative thoughts. There is no laughter at workplaces and children too, behave like adults. "Through the clubs we are trying to break the seriousness of life, and by reviving the spirit of laughter, alleviate stress. "Children laugh over 300 times a day whereas adults laugh only 15 times. This is because children laugh unconditionally while adults do so only if there is a cause. The club is a joint effort by like-minded people to liberate laughter and happiness from reason for where there is logic, there is no laughter. The very essence of laughter is absurdity," points out the author of Laugh For No Reason.

*** More than 70 per cent of illnesses have some relation to stress. High blood pressure, heart disease, depression, insomnia, migraine, anxiety, allergies, peptic ulcers - the list goes on. "If these symptoms recur and persist, you need to unwind and become a member of a Laughter Club", adds Dr. Kataria. The treatment of mind-related diseases is aided by the use of laughter which is the easiest form of meditation.

Well, does this article make you laugh or... at least smile...? Remember, it's good for our health...isn't it?

What To Do If Stopped by Malaysian Police.

I just found this thread and there is something that dragged me to highlight it info here. I have my own reason to get it appear here and there is no obligation. Even I'm a Malaysian, I don't have any intention to condemn my own country. The main reason for me to highlight it here is just to make us alert about our own safety. "Bad thing's happened anywhere, am I right...?" ..............thanks for that "agreed".

All this time, most of my tips and info in this blog are commonly headed for the internet tips/online tips oriented. But, this time I would like to share this "important" tips in term of the "spam police" that being increasingly exist in Malaysia.
(If you're not a Malaysian, maybe you might get some useful ideas to relate it with your own country law).

"My friend actually got somewhat a related experience. While riding with his friend, some "undercover police (spam police)" stopped them, and said that their car is brought into the country illegally. And then they told my friend to meet them at someplace so they can "settle" this is a "quite" manner. Luckily, my friend got curious and never went to meet those impostors. So be carefull, some people just so sick and would do anything for money.

This is is very useful information. Please pass it on to your friends and family.............especially the women folk! The next time you are stopped by persons who claimed they are plainclothes police, you are under no obligation to answer their questions or follow their orders, lawyers told Malaysiakini today."

"Policeman who is not wearing his uniform does not have the authority to stop anyone," lawyer and human rights activist Sivarasa Rasiah said. Sivarasa was commenting on the alleged gang-rape of an 18-year-old Uni student by four men claiming to be police officers on New Year's Eve. The girl said that her car was stopped in Taman Tun Dr Ismail in Kuala Lumpur and were asked by the men to open the car bonnet. She was then told that she had committed an offence and ordered to follow the men to a police station. The girl was driven in her car along the North-South expressway to the Tapah-Cameron Highlands road before she was raped in an oil palm estate."

This incident, and many others, have sparked confusion over the procedures which motorists must follow when flagged down by the police. The most common problem is that most people take instructions without determining if the other person is really a cop," lawyer Annie Santiago said.

However, if you are stopped by a uniformed policeman, then you are required to stop. But you need not get out of the car because you are not expected to do so, Santiago said. He other rule to follow is to provide your identity card only when you are asked to do so. "Even then, you should get his ID first to confirm if he is a cop. There is no harm in calling the relevant police station to verify if he is supposed to be on duty that day," Sivarasa said. Both lawyers said that motorists should never follow an officer to the police station unless one is under arrest. "If you are not sure, and your instincts tell you that something is wrong, then drive off to the nearest police station and lodge a report," Sivarasa said.

In response to the alleged gang-rape of the 18-year-old, Women's Aid Organisation executive-secretary Ivy Josiah called on the police to launch an education program to teach the public about their rights to prevent them from being victimised by bogus police officers.

1) Procedures to follow in the event you are stopped by uniformed police Officers while driving.
i) Stop the car and wind down your window.
ii) If the police officers ask for your documents, request to see their IDs first.
iii) If you are satisfied about their identity, ask them if you are being summoned, and for what offence.
iv) Produce your identity card and driver's license and wait to collect your summon ticket.

2) In the event that the police officers ask you to follow them to the police station:
i) Ask if you are under arrest and for what offence.
ii) If you are not under arrest, you have the right to leave.

3) In the event you are flagged down by persons you believe could be plainclothes police:
i) Do not stop because plainclothes police officers do not have the authority to stop you.
ii) Drive to the nearest police station and lodge a report. (The same procedure applies to pedestrians)

4) In the event the police come to your house:
i) Do not let them in before checking their IDs.
ii) If you are not satisfied, phone the nearest police station and confirm if they had been sent to your house.
iii) You are under no obligation to allow them into the house if they don't have a search warrant.
iv) Do not go with them if you are not under arrest.

5) In the event persons who claimed to be plainclothes police come to your house:
i) Do not let him in because they do not have the authority to do so.
ii) Lodge a report at the nearest police station.

Google Say.

Again, I read again the Critters posting in the DP forum..... and I still want to share with all of you. Maybe this "story" will give us a new refreshment about placing an image above adsense.

Google are now advising publishers to be very careful not to place images that could deceive users directly above the ads. It is still OK to do, but do not use images that could be deceptive to the visitor. Let me explain with some examples.

Bob has a site about iPods, he has ads for iPod related sites. After reading this thread he puts some generic iPod images above his ads, the 4 images are:
iPod photo, a case for the new iPod shuffle, an iPod mini, and a dock station for iPods

Google will take issue with Bob because the images are suggesting a specific offering at the advertisers site. as the ads are random, a user clicking the ad under the iPod shuffle case could get a site that does not sell that iPod shuffle case. They have been mislead.

Highly general images are less likely to be deceptive than very specific images that suggest a specific offering at the advertiser's site.

Bob can do a few things to keep google and his users happy:
1) put a visible border around the ad units.
2) move the images away from the ad units so there is a clear gap.
3) pick very generic iPod images, to minimize the risk of people clicking looking for cases.

This will take your CTR down, but lets turn a frown upside down:

1) users are less likely to leave your site
2) users are not been mislead
3) advertisers are not having their costs driven up (they are people just like us)
4) your CPM should go up as the users are more likely to use/buy from the advertisers site if they are there and find what they expected.

To confirm, it is still OK to have images above ads. But be very careful not to place images that could deceive user.

What a great content right? Thanks again to Critters. It's really good and very useful...!!

Google Base.

Just make a simple changes in my blog and it takes around 2 hour for me to do that.
That's why I'm so sleepy right now. It's because that "2 hour" need me to get to sleep around 2.00 a.m last night! What an effort and I like it very much.

This morning, I've got a newsletter from in my Yahoo mail. It's about the Google Base that already launched last week. I like to share it together with you:

"Aside from the fact that Google Base looks strikingly similar to ROR, we think these kinds of services and formats will change the face of the Internet, especially now that Google is embracing the concept. Finally the Internet is no longer just about text and searching for keywords, it is now also about data and meaning, and searching for complex information."

Anyway, what is Google Base?
Google Base is a place where you can add all types of information that we'll host and make searchable online. Based on the relevance of your items, they may also be included in the main Google search index and other Google products such as Froogle and Google Local. By the way, it's FREE...!!!

After I go thru the Google Base service, I found that this is one of the best service that Google's have.
Let's have a look at the screenshot:

1) Google Base For "Recipes".
2) Edit Item "Page".
3) Item Preview Page.
4) Item Management Page.

Okay, got to go now.

New template and adsense.

It was such a good news when someone tell the others about our b'log. For me, it means that's our b'log is useful and quiet good (as a referance) for blo'ggers out there.
Eventhough there is a thousands of b'log in the blogosphere currently, but I'm feel proud of myself right now when someone talk about it. Same goes to you right..?? Ahaksss...!

Last night, I went to check out my last 20 referrers at my Extreme Tracking.
There is a few link from the big forum (Malaysian forum) that related to my b'log named And when I click to the thread that "mentioned" about my b'log, I just found that my url is there and it was mentioned by the person named Khalifah.

In this thread, he want to make his blog as good and pretty as he can ... but he doesn't know how to do that. I'm pretty damn sure that this is the honest statement for him to show that he really want to get his own new template + adsense programme.

My friend,
Let me tell you one thing. Me myself also was a dumb blogger before. That's why I made my true life journey in this b'log. There is 13 episodes inside it and all the articles is based on my own experience. Anyway, you may start from the 1st episode here.

Now, let's get back to the main topic.
If you want to change your template to the pretty one, just go to the Blogger Template. You might find the favourite template that you always wish for. If you don't, there is a link at the left bar in that site which still can offer you another kind of templates. And the process to "shift" the new template was to easy!

Get the new html code ----> Highlight (ctrl+A) ----> Copy (ctrl+C) ----> Paste in to your Template site (ctrl+V).
*** In order to not lose your basic html code for your original template, please make a back-up data for your basic html code or DO a copy first for your original html code in the Notepad or Microsoft Word.

Want to get serious for the html tutorial, point your browser here.
And if you're looking the best way to increase your income, make sure you know the right way to do it.
Isn't that so easy..??

Genius Boy In Malaysia.

I just finish read yesterday's newspaper.
I am not sure whether I am the last person in Malaysia who did that.
Even yesteday was a Sunday (weekend), I'm still on duty at my office from 10.00a.m untill 10.00p.m. Working as an Education Caunsellor sometimes needs me to be punctual all the time.

But, the only thing that makes me alert about yesterday's news is an article about this boy named Adi Putra.
By the way, what I want to say is that this is the next "SuperBoy" in Malaysia and believe it or not, he already solved an Additional Mathematics problems meant for secondary level (17 years old math's syllabus). No matter what kind of questions is that, he can answer it all perfectly even he is a a 6-year-old boy...!!!!

Is it because of the genetic?
Or is it ONLY because of the "GIFTED" from God?
Or this situation just happened 1/1,000,000 in our true life?
If you think so, you're wrong!
It will not just happened like that my friends. I believe all children are born geniuses. The person who make this "miracle" happened is their PARENT. This is a good example of parent that we're looking for. In any kind of form, younger children can absorb many information.

" The younger children are, the faster they learn. It is in fact easier to teach a one-year-old child to read that seven year-old"
. Professor Glenn Doman.

Now, let's share some idea here. As I said, as an Education Counsellor.... this kind of info was already part of my presentation and I believe it 100%. The reason for me to said that because I believe of what I've learned and there is a prove for it scientifically. Start from the left brain and the right brain, neuron connectivity untill the brain stimulation... all this "thing" must be given to the younger children at first six years of their lives de-genius-ing them. And it should began from HOME.

Brain stimulation
is the most important thing as parents should know. The more they asking, the more information they need. Unfortunately, some parents discouraged their children from asking questions and learning.

That's the fact. With such resounding official support, early home-based learning could well be a normal process in Malaysian homes of the future. I hope so.

No Pain, No Gain.

Many blogger still waiting the right "DAY" for them to feel SHOCKED about their adsense. Eventhough the desire is still inside , no one will know when is the right time to log in to their Adsense account. If you're an Adsense beginner right now, surely this "curiosity" will keep running inside your mind, isn't it?

But don't worry, the day is not over yet. There is a lot of internet users outside there that still "0" about this "ads-sense". Whenever you think the chance are going down, actually you're wrong..!

Let me give you an example with this "unique" statements:
1) How many student in this world that need your article's as a part of their assignment or tesis currently?
2) How many family or people that sign-up for the internet service (broadband / dial-up) on a daily basis?
3) Are you sure that all your neighbour knows about an "ADSENSE'?
4) Do you think Google's is stupid to stop this damn good programme?
5) Everyday is a "born" day.... so, get them before they "gone"!

"The only real limitation on your abilities is the level of your desires. If you want it badly enough, there are no limits on what you can achieve."
--Brian Tracy.

So, what is stopping us to make an adsense as our best earning?
Sky is the limit ... am I right?
Don't prejudge ourselves untill we'll find that nobody will get hurt for what we did. It's just another way to increase our income and the only thing that we have to remember is the T.O.S.
Yup... it's the Adsense T.O.S ..... don't get banned by Google, my friends.

So, are you ready to keep the desire on the track back? No pain, no gain!
If you do, this is the friendly reminder for all of us:

- Do use the
Adsense approved formats only.
- Do keep your click-through data and income private.
- Don't display
Adsense on registration or thank you pages.
- Don't use
Adsense code and a competitor's content-targeted advertisement on the same page.
- Don't encourage anyone else to click on ads.
- Don't click on the site's own ads ever.

Broadband Phone Call (VoIP).

It's a new trend for the telecommunications company to "pursuit" this challenge (VoIP). No matter which country you are, this is a valuable business that they must get involved with. And for those who are still lack of this information, they must take seriously about this. Why?

For me, I already keep in mind that "hi-tec communication" always got his own "enemy". Either we realise it or not, it will come to the next stage automatically but now, I don't want to talk about it..... later allright? As for now, I just want to share some ideas about broadband phone call (VoIP).

Do we still remember about the "MIRC-fever"?
Allright, let's recall and give a damn good flashback to the time where we're fall into "MIRC (chatting)" fever...!!!

Did anyone still remember about it? I've bet that everybody had their "nice-experience" including me myself.
In my case, I always want to call the "girl" that I've chatt with. At that time, I was 16 and "chatting-MIRC" is became my hobby. So, everytime I log in, the feeling was so great and the curious was to high because I really want to hear her voice and the face of that "girl"....ahakssss. That's why my father said " don't you ever make a (long distance) phone call without my permission! The phone bil will be increase!" Yeah... I still remember about it.

But now, it will be no problem at all. We got so many choice regarding this matter. No need to control the budget for the telecommunications side. If you're stayed in the US, Canada or Puerto Rico ... why not you try this Vonage service.
"You won't need a new phone to use Vonage. Your existing touch-tone phone is fine. Instead of plugging it into a jack, we’ll send you a free phone adapter that connects to your high-speed Internet line. Just plug your phone into the adapter and start making calls." - Vonage.

And for the Malaysian (my country), we already got ours. Well, how about you try the Redtone 015 service.
What is Redtone 015 ?
"REDtone015 is a global Broadband Internet Telephony Service. Basically, it routes all phone calls via Broadband Internet Access. You can be anywhere in the country or the world. Once you access the Internet, you can enjoy the REDtone015 service at very competitive rates."-Redtone.

But for me, I'm still use my Skype service. It's very good indeed. Want to try? Point your browser here and you can download it for free!

Richman and Donald Trump.

It was a rainy day and for today, I've got no deal and no sales. Maybe this "weather" actually want to tell me that today is my "rest day'. I think so.
And because of that, I have some time to submit my new posting for this blog right now. It's already 2week since I submit my last post.

Yup... I've got a personel invitation from Donald Trump.
It was yesterday and I still have a doubt for this e-mail. It's quite weird huh..? I know that this is one of the way for him to market his "Trump University".

But, the thing that I'm still thinking of is "is it real?" Is Donald Trump looking for his "new student"? Or he really got a financial problem with the "education earning"? Is Trump's university got no "demand" by the American's? Or maybe the university got a problem itself...?
Anyway, it just my opinion.

It's known that Mr Trump is a good "richman". Nobody doubt about it and me myself was a one of his fans. This is good example about the man who is really damn serious about his own business empire.

Let me give an example:
Can you imagine about the "marketing" that he is doing right now about his "Trump University". Do we have a guts like him? Ask yourself. As long as I know, nobody will "market" his own university like he did thru the internet.

I'm also really into his Apprentice show. My only comment about his show is that this is the longest "interview" that I've ever seen in my life. And of course all the candidates must know how to play the game. As for me, the best thing about this show is "reverse psychology" that've been "played" by all the candidates since season 1st.

Are you want to be like him...? Do you got the desire like him? Do you want to be a richman like him...?
If you are, why not you think like the way he think on How To Get Rich!!!?

Trump: How to Get Rich

Hello...from GadgetBlog.

It's quite interesting when someone from the send an e-mail to me.
At first, I thought that this is a normal e-mail that I've subscribe for.
But after I checked it again and again, I found that this is not a normal e-mail.
It's because the owner of this GadgetBlog is a member of the network...!!!

Yes... thanks to Colbert Low for your e-mail.
Who is Colbert Low?
Colbert Low is the editor of the TheGadgetBlog. His blog was nice and attractive eventhough the "template" are quite famous. Again..... thanks to you Colbert for your "complimentary" about my another blog that is (gadget blog).

For our information, TheGadgetBlog now is a part of the Blogging Network (b5Media).
And for this qualification, I would like to congrats Colbert for his effort.
Dudes..... you did it man...!!

As far as I know, b5media is not a normal "blogging-network" that you can join easily. There is a "rules" that you have to obey. And as a Malaysian, I'm very proud if any Malaysian can do it.
Opsss... congrats to Liewcf also...!!!

Bear in mind that this blogging network also joined by the Problogger (Darren Rowse).
It's known that Darren was the famous bloggers among us. Try to imagine the situation if your blog was invited by the network. Isn't in great when you can have a link with the "high page rank" site..?

By the way..... Colbert, are you a Malaysian?

Joel Comm is a FRAUD?

This is shocked man...!

I found this "hot' topic when I was told by my friend about this site.
At first, I'm not sure whether this is true or not. I thought this is just a rumours and nothing special about it. But after I look at the contents deeply, there is something wrong about the site (from my point of view).
And as you can see, it was stated there that Joel Comm was "involved" with the "spam blog promoter" named Rick Butts.

So, what is this all about?
It's known that Joel Comm is a owner of the Adsense-Secrets website (e-book). In his What Google Never Told You About Making Money With Adsense, he already help a lot of people outside there who want to be a "wealth blogger".
Many people had read and own his ebook and also a member on his forum.

I am not Joel's "blood" and I'm not paid by him to come up with this statement.
And I also have no gain from making this statement other than to make it clear. It's because as far as I know, Joel is a person who already succed with his own way.
The same thing goes when I asked my brother (BloggerTips webbie). He said that the book is very worthwhile and he has found that he is a very honest guy.

Bear in mind that Joel's forum has a lot of members...!
And you may check that Joel's adwords ( was to "famous" in the Google Adsense?
If he is a FRAUD, do you think that he will stayed longer in this "blogging zone"...?

So, do you still think that he is a FRAUD...? If you do, just give your marvellous comment about this "HOT" topic..!!

p/s: Joel Comm is a FRAUD...? I don't think so......

Microsoft Office "12"

Have we check our Windows news lately?

If not, maybe this posting will give us some idea about it.
Other than the cool keyboard shortcuts that I've been listed down before , there is some part that I want to higlight it here.
Yup, it's about the Microsoft Office "12".

What is Microsoft Office "12"?
-----------> This is the most significant release of Microsoft Office since Office 95,” Gates said. “Office ‘12’ has all the essential ingredients to deliver an incredible productivity boost for millions of people around the world. But that’s only half the story.
The expansion of server and developer capabilities in Office ‘12’ are a great illustration of what is possible with today’s platform. These improvements will help spur greater group and organizational productivity and expand the opportunities for developers.” -microsoft-

Microsoft Office "12" is being redesigned (is it so special?) to make it easier for people (like us?) to find and use the features and commands they need to get the results they want (no need to think if we're a Linux user).

What makes the Microsoft Office "12" special?
------------> When planning the next release of the Microsoft Office system of products, we took on the challenge of making the core Microsoft Office applications easier to work with. Taking into account extensive usability data and recent advancements in hardware and software, the team has delivered the most significant update to the Microsoft Office user interface (UI) in more than a decade. The result of these efforts is a user interface that makes it easier for people to find and confidently use the appropriate features they need to get the results they want. -microsoft-

Let's take a look the new "appearance" for this Windows (click to enlarge):

1) Command Tabs.
2) Contextual Command Tabs.
3) MarginGalleries.

"Microsoft Ofiice "12" is expected to lauch/ship in the second half of the 2006, with a limited Beta released this fall".

Now, am I on my way to see a comment/opinion from you guys regarding this new Windows?

Chitika Is Not For Us?

The latest news that I've got (from chatting) is Chitika will not accept the publishers from the Asia...!!
Is that true...?

Maybe this is a joke but I will send an e-mail to the Chitika's support team regarding this matter.

Anyway, it's been 1 week for me (not online) to put an article in this blog.
Yeah... I don't have a time (quality time) for it.
Being as an Education Counsellor is not as simple as I thought before.
This job really "steal" my time and it's getting more "worst" lately.
However, I think I'm on a "track" for blogging now...LOL.
I'm bacckkk.....!!!

Yesterday, I've got an invitation from "_____" regarding the new way to make money (online) and currently, I'm still study for the fully method. Definitely, I will share it here later...!!

Opss... got another message. Gtg...

Adsense Make Money: Last Journal ?

Maybe this is the last episode of my true experience on adsense. So far, I don't have a problem with the adsense.... but I have a problem with the traffic indeed.

By the way, I hope all my readers still keep in touch with me ...!!!
For those who are still struggling with their adsense, just keep in our mind that..... there is no short-cut to succes.
Just take your own time to promote your site or blog to the "WORLD".

Now, back to the blog promotion.
In my previous posting, there is a certain part that still not clear right?
Now, just give a high focus on this next step of promotion.


Honestly, I could not hesitate to use this kind of promotion because the effect was good. But remember ... if you have your own way to promote your site, please PROCEED! This is just an addiitional step to next stage (especially for adsense beginner-as I said in My Journal 1-).

And, if you ask me about the comparison between this 2 type of promotion, my answer is it's very different.
The big differential about this kind of promotion is about TIME. Yup...!
Actually, it takes a long time but it's MORE EFFECTIVE. But HOW?

The url's submission is not the only way to boost the traffic. We need a very good "practical" type of promotion. For this reason, I'd already asked many questions to "succeed blogger". One of the MOST valueble statement come from Mr Sid & LcF and it sounds like this
"Just give yourself a time to improve your adsense and normally it will take 1 to 2 year to become perfect.."
So, all I wanna say is don't wait for the MIRACLE's happen.... because in this "adsense-industry", we can't make it happen within one day.

As I said, I asked so many questions from the "succeed-blogger".
In order to "create" the bonding, there is a few way to promote our blog.

1) Exchange Link by submit to the directory.
2) Personel e-mail.
3) Via Forum.

1) Exchange Link.
This is my first choice to create internet users "awareness". Just take a look at MY TOOLS down-left there.
Still have a doubt?
If you do, just type "lampusuluh" at the google search bar, easily you will see my 'links" to this icons.
Isn't that great to see your "blog-name" at the BIG search engine webpage like GOOGLE?


2) Personel e-mail.
Do not hesitate to ask somebody or others if you have a confusing-fact. This can be done via e-mail and I did it before.
It's a fastest way to release your confusing. But, if we have a questions with the google adsense... better for us to contact the adsense support team. Don't worry about the reply because adsense will reply your e-mail a.s.a.p.
It's just a matter of time. But, trust me... adsense will e-mail you back within 24-36 hours.

3) Via Forum.

Wooo.... this is my favourite way to promote my blog.
It is because I can learn so many things that google's not tell. However, it may take a long time to attract the forum's member to your site. What the best about this "skill" is that we will learn new things everyday.
And normally, we can study the same problem that we're faced.
For me, the best forum that I've ever joined is:



For those who want to share the tip on "how to get a higher traffic", it's a big PLEASURE for your kindness. I will publish your tips here if you send it to me (via my e-mail).

Place Images Above The Google ads.

"The more we know, the more we don't know..."

This is an reply e-mail from Jeff.... one of the Google's support team members.
I did e-mail him a few days ago regarding the images above my google's adsense.
And maybe this can help you too.

So, here you are...


Thank you for your email. I understand that you would like to know if
publishers may place images above their Google ads. Unfortunately, we are
unable to provide a blanket answer, as it truly depends on the
circumstances of each implementation. In some instances, images may be
placed above the ads without any harm.

However, there is also the possibility of attributing "undue attention" to
the ads if the images placed above ads are misleading or seem to be
directly associated with the advertisers and their offerings.

If users click on ads without the intention of converting to customers, advertiser
costs can be artificially inflated. Drawing undue attention to ads is in
violation of our program policies, so we are unable to sanction every
instance of this implementation.

If you choose to experiment with placing images directly above the ads, I
would strongly encourage you to maintain a "visible border" around the ad
units to reduce the possibility of confusing users.

For additional questions, we suggest you visit our AdSense Support site at . If you're unable to find an
answer to your question on our site, please feel free to reply to this
