Subject: FW: mobile alert!!! Dear All, If you receive a phone call on your mobile from any person, saying that, he or she is a company engineer, or telling that they're checking your mobile line, and you have to press # 90 or #09 or any other number. End this call immediately without pressing any numbers. There is a fraud company using a device that once you press #90 or #09 they can access your "SIM" card and make calls at your expense.
Forward this message to as many friends as you can, to stop it.
All mobile users pay attention if you receive a phone call and your mobile phone displays (XALAN) on the screen don't answer the call, END THE CALL IMMEDIATELY, if you answer the call, your phone will be infected by a virus.. This virus will erase all IMEI and IMSI information from both your phone and your SIM card, which will make your phone unable to connect with the telephone network. You will have to buy a new phone. This information has been confirmed by both Motorola and Nokia. There are over 3 Million mobile phones being infected by this virus in all around the world now. You can also check this news in the CNN web site.
PLEASE FORWARD THIS PIECE OF INFORMATION TO ALL YOUR FRIENDS HAVING A MOBILE.
a certain bobby pua has decided to investigate on the validity of this abovementioned issue. and found this..
Mobile Phone Misinformation - XALAN and #90 HoaxSummary:Email warning claims that a scammer can take over your mobile phone if you key in #90. The message also claims that a phone virus is circulating that can erase the SIM card of the infected mobile. Status : False Commentary : This supposed warning for mobile phone users simply combines two other hoaxes. None of the information provided in the email is valid for mobile phone users. The first part of the hoax email claims that pressing #09 or a similar combination of digits will give a fraudster access to your sim card and allow him or her to make calls at your expense. This is untrue and has been denied by Australian telecommunications giant, Telstra. Another version of the hoax claims the same trick can be used to hijack fixed phones. Although such a scam is theoretically possible on certain types of business telephone switching equipment that requires users to dial "9" to get an outside line, normal home phones or mobile phones are not vulnerable.
For more information about the #09 hoax, see : Nine Zero Hash Phone Scam Hoax The second part of the hoax claims that a virus that displays the word "XALAN" can destroy your mobile phone. This information is untrue. Although mobile phone viruses are possible, there is no virus like the one described in the email message. There are a number of alternative versions of the "warning" message, some of which list the word displayed as "UNAVAILABLE" or "ACE" rather than "XALAN". Telstra has denied the existence of such viruses.
Remember Flintstones? they had their car... and remember how they started the car? they had to use their legs to start the car. and the wheels would start rolling
but todae, in this world of very advance technology. people have decided that they could cut down on those steps. instead of using legs to start the car and wait for the wheels to roll, they might as well get rid of the wheels and just use legs instead.
On my way home from work, i walked pass a cake shop. Suddenly i stopped and looked at them. I stepped in and bought a slice of blackforest cake. It looked tasty. I asked the shop assistant for 2 big candles and 2 small candles. She gave me a strange look as if i asked for too many candles for a small slice of cake. I ignored her look. Paid the money and walked away.
Reached home and had dinner. I did not take alot today, as i know i had a slice of cake for desert. I went back to my room. Took out my little slice of birthday cake by myself, put the 4 candles on it, and litted them. I switched off the lights for the added effect. I sang myself a little birthday song and made myself a little birthday wish. And i finally had my own birthday cake. =) Happy Birthday Bobby
p/s - happy 20th birthday to my dearest bro. hope ur birthday is much better then mine. it has to be... u're in the vatican city. haa...
Opening Hours 24 Hours 7 days a Week. Yea! It doesn't close. Works just like 7-11.
Getting There Nearest MRT station is Farrer Park.
Security Check Point Once you reached the entrance of the shopping center, you'll be faced with more than a couple of security staffs. Some can be friendly while some can jus be awfully rude. You'll be asked to check in your bag with them. They will take care of your bag while you're shopping. You'll then hold on to a tag indicating the number where your bag is. But they'll allow you to bring your bag in too. However, they zip it up with fasteners... then you can't take anything out of your bag also. hmmm... (damn dunno what to say about this system... weird man!! it's like so secure, but not secure also...)
Patience Crowd traffic is very very high over there at Mustafas'. It's very hard to actually move around the place especially at the ground level near the main entrance. The corridor is not exactly the widest of all corridors and it's very hard to cut in front of another person to move along in front. So you'll find yourself moving along slowly down the corridor. (i was damn angry lar. many times those fat fellas walk in front of me. block the whole lane.. i wan to cut by left or right also cannot. sometimes got space to cut.. i try to make my move. but the other side got incoming traffic. i gotta jam break somemore. super sianz.)
Another aspect of patience is the long queue, which is not a surprise. There are many counters around but not all of them are opened. The counter staffs aren't really that well trained as they are rather slowly in checking in your purchase and getting done with the whole process, which is another main reason for the queue. (and machiam you owe them money one... damn not friendly can. the face so angry... machiam never sleep like that.)
Know what you want As I've mentioned above, staffs are not very well trained. Hence, knowing what you want is very important. They might not even know where to find what products. Neither would they offer to help you check. Most of the time, an ''I don't know'' is the most you'll get out of them. Especially for electronic products, do your research before heading down to buy it. As it's really hard to get information there. (they everything also dunno one.. dun bother ask them which oven better, or which tv resolution better, i just wanted to get an adapter for use in europe, he dint even know what i was talking about)
Bargaining No Bargaining. (shopping center lar.... you wan to bargain what??)
Perfume : Bring your friends along This must be the place where you can find the most perfumes, cologne, body spray and anything else that gives out smell. Amazing is that there's sample for all that you can find. Beats SASA (issit SASA?) and other departmental stores hands down. The best part is that there's no irritating salesman or saleswoman around you to look at you or stress you out. So you can just try out anything you want. Bring your friends along as you'll find yourself with nowhere else to spray on yourself.. So your friends can lend you their hands or neck or ears or wherever you need to test the perfume you want. Oh, and it's cheaper at Mustafa. (if you feeling bo liao can play spray perfume at each other face... tried before. quite fun. ahaha!)
Check for Expiry Date Rumours that there have been some expired goods found on the shelves of Mustafa. Hence better to be safe then sorry. Just make a check before you buy. (u nv check den eat liao lao sai dun come and find me ahh)
Snacks The assortments of snacks are wonderful. Anything from Ferrera Rocher to old school Gold Coins Wrapped Chocolate. Lays potato chips to Double Decker crackers. Very wide variety. But as I've mentioned, just remember to check the expiry date.
Toilets Very few toilets around. Very irritating. From what i know. there's only 1 guys toilet at the perfume section. And 1 girls toilet in b1 at the men's department beside the underwear section. Hmmmm... Shouldn't they change the toilet? Like shift the girls toilet to the perfume section? And the guys toilet to the underwear section? Aint it more appropriate? (i dunno why but always go there.. i always need to use toilet one. and the male toilet is forever in washing mode. And i dunno go where already! they need more toilet there lor confirm!!)
Those guys that soiled their underwear while doing business can just take the new ones. And girls who are worried that their business might make them smell bad can just use the perfume samples. Best of both worlds. Unless of course the management is worried that the guys' business might be so bad they need all the perfume around to cover it up.
Guys Clothing One of my favouritest place to get pants. Sometimes can find some nice shirts too. But you'll never know there can be so many different colours for guys pants until you see this place. Once spent 3hrs dwindling there, just trying out everything i want. Similar to the perfume section. The salesman wouldn't really care about you.
Weekends Please avoid going on weekends evenings. The earliest you should go on a Saturday night should be 11pm. It's gonna be horrible if you make your way there on weekends evenings. It'll be like Chinese New Year Chinatown.
Conclusion It's a shopping experience you must not miss. Try shopping there at 2am in the morning. You'll feel very different. This place is so huge and you'll be amazed by all the things they have. They even have a website. Click here and be further amazed by their wide array of services.
I can be engaged as a guide to the place. No problem. =) So see you at Mustafa!
maybe i have led a lonely and mundane life for too long. i've forgotten alot of feelings. but now, i've finally remembered the happiness that follows when i'm able to make someone happy. Or the smile on the person's face because of something i did. that kind of self satisfaction was a forgotten feeling, but now i've found it back. =)
Cost of 2 guys pouring out their feelings - Priceless
Many revelations. Realised much more important things in life. The love given to us by our parents. And the love that we have yet to give to our parents. The selfishness in all of us. The selfishness that we have to get rid of.
The pain that we feel. The regret that we are still unable to fulfill. The chance that we might not be getting.
Hi, there are many things that i would want to say to you. There's a book, The Five People You Meet in Heaven. If you believe in it, then we'll all not know who the Five people are. They can all be so random. But I can say that I've met one of the Five People I Meet on Earth. And that's you my dearest friend. littlepinkseal. not only have you thought me the material side of life. but you've opened my eyes to that of being a better person for myself. and the selflessness of being a fren.
it makes me remourse for not being as good a friend. and for even betraying you. it hurts me deeply after going through everything. somebody whom i hold most dearly to besides my family, the only other person would have to be you. you're the only one who knows what i want. what i have to do even more clearly than me.
you're the only one who have been there for me every time. without fail. going thru all my happy times and all my sad times together. the bond that we have is special and unique. i'm sure i would never be able to find another friend like this. losing 10 others would not even amount to losing you.
it hurts me alot to know that you're feeling hurt. and i'm not able to do anything. and this is a very akward situation. for watever have happened. and now for me wanting to do something for you and even make you happy. i'm doing everything i can now to ensure that i do not repeat the same mistakes again. do allow me to do what a friend is supposed to do. let me talk to you. let me be your listening ears. let me have the chance to be who i was. who i was to you. and who i was to myself. please let me have the chance.
This is for you, my best friend, the one person i can tell my soul too Who can relate to me like no other Who I can laugh with to no extents, Who I can cry too when times are tough, Who can help me with the problems of my life.
Never have you turned your back on me Or let me down You told me I wasn't good enough when i really wasn't good enough
I don't think you know what that means to me You have went through so much pain and you still have time For me. And I love you for listening even when inside YOU are dying And I look up too you because you are strong, and caring and beautiful. Even though you don't think you are.
And I hope you know that I am always here To listen to you laugh and cry and help In all the ways that i can And I will try to be at least half the friend you are To me.
I hope you know I would not be the person I am today, with out you. My best friend.
