Blocked Websites - China's Long List

Since I'm going to China, I'm still looking for ways that I can communicate thru internet, but I found that web sites that have been blocked by People's Republic of China is surprisingly long. Of course, the most popular Facebook is being blocked, I cannot believe that blogger also kena.

I was shocked when I googled for the sites that potentially being blocked and hotmail and gmail are in the list. OMG... email also cannot? Must use those originated from China only? I wonder. Luckily I roughly get an idea about the sites that potentially I cannot access in China.

Guys, do charity please.

Since we have the ability to earn ourselves a living, I believe we have the ability to help. It does not require massive contribution from you, a little from many can make the difference. You can choose which category that you prefer to help, such as welfare, healthcare, education or environment. Of course, you can always choose more than one.

If you do not have CIMB account, you can choose to contribute using other bank accounts such as Maybank, Public Bank, Hong Leong Bank, RHB, and Bank Islam. I believe you can get the tax relief from the contribution that you have made to the authorized charity bodies.

From 2010 onwards, let us make this community more caring, more educated, and make the world a better place to live, for yourself and for your next generations to come.

Pintu Laut Bayar untuk Shopping!!!

Upon the confirmation of the winter clothing allowance, MQ and I have visited Universal Traveler, Travel All and Parkson in Sunway Carnival. Since the allowance is not much, but the feeling that somebody is paying for your shopping just keep pumping up your adrenaline. Initially, we walked from one outlet to another, and also tried our luck at Reject Shop and so... there was not much choice left after the year end carnival sales.

Eventually, we went in UT again. The outlet that appears to be selling everything more expensive. I was very particular about the discount given a few days ago, and making comparison here and there. Finally, I have made up my mind to get one black, smart-looking, goose feather winter clothing for RM299 x 90%. Although it makes me even a bit plump, I tell myself everyone will look alike in that outfit.

This is the most excited moment in 'Pintu Laut' during the reign of CS Tan (almost 2.5 years) as ESD engineer. Why sounds like I'm leaving?

Anyway, a good planning enables us to spend at fixed amount but buy more things. This is exactly what I'm going to do. 1, 2, 3, 4 items has been captured, including one sweater which is originally cost RM268 each, I bought it at 50%, I really like that one. I still have around RM250 to spend, probably need to get a long john, 1 or 2 pairs of gloves, socks and so... I hope that's enough.

Next opportunity will not come until 4+ years ahead, I'm not sure where would I be, but now I would like to say "Thank you + Thank you to 'Pintu Laut'~!"

yeah yeah...

It is another blog renovation

Since I cannot tahan the distorted imaged publish in my previous template, I've decided to change to a not so complicated template, so that I can manage it better, and more importantly, a customizable template which is hassle free.

I do not have the ideal background image for my blog yet, so I pick this one, which was taken by my gf during a seafood dinner at Batu Maung. I was told that it looks like Jimbaran in Bali, is that so?

Anyway, the photo is well taken. Nice job, dear.
