Trying Tissot Watches on Touch Screen

At first Shiseido lauched a virtual make up mirror that allows you to see how their product look on your face. Now, you have Tissot coming up with a system that allow you to see how their watches look on your wrist. It seems that Tissot teamed up with a London department store, Selfridges for this virtual shopping system. The 3D technology was made available through augmented reality technology.
Way to go! Hope they extend this technology to clothes department store too! I don't have to queue up to try dresses. :p

Uh oh, tension rising again in Korean waters

The North Korean was accused of sinking a South Korean navy ship in March 2010, killing 46 sailors onboard. It is sad to see that both countries are still at odds at each other since the Korean war ended. Ironically, South Korean has been helping North Koreans in many ways such as children aids, technical aids and many more. I don't understand why North Korea would want to attack South Korea.
Make peace not war!

3 Months Maternity Leave

It was recently suggested by certain party to increase the number of maternity leave to 90 days instead of the normal practice of 30 or 60 days. Taking care of newborn is not an easy task especially if you are first time mother. Furthermore, many couples might no have any relatives to help them especially if they stay in the city, far away from their hometown. If your look at this in the employers' perspective, they might not agree to extend maternity leave for mothers. Companies that are small or running on low budget may have problem giving paid leave for 90 days.
So, what is your say?

License to Teach

The Star reported on 21st May 2010.....
"Education Ministry mulls licence for teachers
Teachers may be required to sit for a qualifying exam to obtain their teaching licence just like doctors and lawyers if the Education Ministry's proposal is accepted. Deputy Education minister Dr Puad Zarkashi said the licensing was proposed as an initiative to ensure professionalism in the teaching profession and to avoid bogus teachers or those involved in criminal activities from remaining in the profession."

Bogus teacher?
Do you think this proposal is feasible?

Beware of Rogueware

Roguewares have been in the world wide web for quite some time. One of the local daily carried a report regarding this malicious code written to infiltrate victim computers. Their modus operandi is simple. When you accidentally landed at this malicious site, a screen will pop up or you will receive warning messages that your computer is effected by certain virus, trojan or spywares. Then they would ask you to download an antivirus program. Sometimes they code would virtually take control of your computer unless you shut down your IE with Task Manager. The website would take control no matter if you click yes or no to download the antivirus program. Before they allow you to download the program, the website would ask you for your credit card details. Users or victims who panic would ended up losing their money. Even if they don't ask you for credit card payment details, the downloaded code or antivirus program would gather sensitive data from the victim's computer and send them back to the syndicate. They normally target passwords and bank account details.
If you encounter these type of website, just open your task manager and shut down your IE. Then clear all your cookies without connecting to the internet, then run a virus scan. Hope this post helps!

After that the multimedia technology, 3G which transmit telecomunication signal at the speed of at least 200kbit/s gave uses a wide spectrum of multimedia services. Now 4G is making its' way to the telecomunication history through high broadband transmission in terms of Gigabit speed.

Everything should go at full steam once all the 4G infrastructure are up and running.

Why we need to sleep?

Everyone I met will always complain that they are deprive of their beauty sleep. Adults need to sleep for at least eight hours each day. Our brains would repair itself when we sleep, which explains why our mental strengh would be stronger when we have enough rest or sleep soundly. During deep sleeping mode the organs in our body would work hard to expel all the impurities and toxin from our systems. People need to sleep less as they get older but they are prone to sleep disturbances compared to younger adults.
Do you have difficulty sleeping?

Clinic Refuses to treat injured child

The local newspaper reported recently that a clinic refused to treat a child who was critically injured due to child abuse. If I am not mistaken, there have been many reports regarding general practitioners in clinics refusing to treat gravely injured victims. I am not sure what is the doctor's reason for not helping these poor victims but I think as a doctor, they should at least help the injured by giving first aid. Aren't doctors suppose to help people? What happen to their sense of social responsibility? What is your say?

Polystyrene window frame shock for house buyers - The Star Tuesday May 11

I just couldn't believe it when I read about a certain developer in Butterworth used polystyrene as window frame. I would be angry too if I were to buy a house that does not comply to what is stated in the contract.
What is your opinion about the quality of houses built by Malaysian developers?

Voice Recorded Answering Machine

There are many companies using automated voice recording to answer incoming phone call. One of the most common ones are the banks. I always have problem trying to decide which response number I should press and by the time the session recording ends, I would forget what was said earlier. Then I have to hang up and call back again. Back to square one and start all over again. Some of the options available also doesn't make sense.
Care to share what you think of these type of answering machine?

Happy Mother's Day

Everytime of the year when it comes to Mother's Day, with all the publicity splashed all over the media, I began to miss my late mother. I spent most of my growing year with my grandma but the memories I had about my mother never fade. I remember vividly how hard my mom had to work and take care of the family at the same time. I treasure all the little time I spent with my mom helping her to do some housework and cook for the family. Oh, mom I wish you are here with me now.....

To all the dedicated and strong mother out there, I wish you a 'Happy Mother's Day'

Our Public Transport

Our authorities spend years and years to discuss how to improve our public transport but I never see any significant improvement. The bus schedule is still very erratic and it is not easy to go around KL using our public transport unless you have plenty of time to spend. Our taxis are still trying to haggle the price although there are recent campaign to stop this practice.

What is your opinion about our public transport?
