You see, I have never cease to admire Green Packet in it’s venture to provide great mobile data services. That is why I have been a true follower of their service and innovations.
I am sure you have heard about their latest innovation, Super W1ggy. If you haven’t let me tell you about it.
Come, let me show you their plans. Their plans, starts from RM 59 but I still think their RM 129 package worth more and it’s value for people who are constantly on the move, just like me. You can view more details at P1 Website.
I mean, I am always looking for a better way to get connected and I used to have Celcom. But then again, sometimes, it is good, sometimes, it is not. I then switched to mobile internet when I got my Samsung Galaxy S which can be used as Mobile AP. When I got my hands on P1 4G SUPERW1GGY, I straight away went mobile with it.
So, still not convinced that this should be the plan for you? See, this is the speed at Bangsar!
So, what you waiting for? Check your coverage and sigh up now!
Note that different area different speed ya. Make sure you decide nicely with your 7 days money back guarantee grace period okay? Don’t say I never tell you!
For those living in a nutshell, RSS is Really Simple Sindication. Okay, geddit? Now, let me continue with that I wanna talk about.
I am currently using Google Reader for my RSS feeds. It’s a beauty, but I just realized that iTalkWhoa has this RSS function all along and I never knew about it.
With RSS feeds, you can just skip the “Register for Newsletter” and just get the feeds for any new updates from any online website. You also skip the “Bookmark” way as you lump everything at one place.
I was just meddling with the iTalk Whoa! account and here is the step by step way to configure the RSS with iTalk Whoa! It is very simple, if you just follow these steps…
Step 1 – Go to www.italkwhoa.com and login with your user and password. If you haven’t sign up yet, what are you waiting for?
Step 2 – Select the RSS Feeds under Mail panel and click on “New Group” to create new category/group.
Step 3 – A pop up box will appear and you can key in your desired category/group name and then click “Add”.
Step 4 – Just wait for a moment or you just need to logout and login again to see the updated RSS feeds that you just entered.
To input any info on News category, just search for RSS News that interest you. In the example, the feeds gather from The star newspaper.
Just go to the The Star Url – http://thestar.com.my
Scroll further down till the end of the webpage and you will see image as below:
Oh, do you know that you can get RSS Feeds from:
• Any newspaper – The star [http://thestar.com.my/rss/]
• At PC/Entertainment website – Apple [http://www.apple.com/rss/]
• At blogger website
Shown above the link for RSS Feeds in The Star newspaper. Thus you can just choose any topic that interests you the most. In this example, Sport under News been selected.
Just right click on the RSS icon besides the Sport News and select ‘Copy Link Location’.
Go back to your iTalk Whoa’s account and highlight the News icon, input ‘Sport’ under ‘Feed Description’ and paste the url copied previously.
The Sport RSS url will appear and click ‘Add New’ button and the Sport RSS will appear in the Feed Name Box as below:
To view all the RSS Feeds for sport, just click on Sport under News at the Mail Panel:
All the Sport highlights will be display in split second and you can just click on any link to read/view the full story of the day.
Sometimes, the link create does not appear immediately. Thus user need to wait for a few minutes before the link to appear. Or user may logout and login again into iTalk Whoa! to view the link.
Okay, you read it all here at YapThomas.Com
Taking a break now while I’m in the middle of overclocking myself.
Wanted to write a post about overworking the brain and went to Google for a term for it. The answer came even more shocking than I wanted to know.
Come on! I just wanted a term to name “overworking the brain”. I’m sure there is like a “scientific” name for it. But anyways… look what Google shows me when I search for “a term for overworking your brain”
One of the search result is a link to “Top 10 Biggest Brain Damaging Habits“.
It is scary I tell you… I don’t know how true but people who is as workaholic as me, grab on tight.
1. No Breakfast
People who do not take breakfast are going to have a lower blood sugar level.This leads to an insufficient supply of nutrients to the brain causing brain degeneration.
Oh No! I better start taking breakfast from now onwards. Must not forget my healthy start of the day! MUST!
It causes hardening of the brain arteries, leading to a decrease in mental power.
I’m okay with this. I’m mostly calm and don’t panic as much as I used to.
It causes multiple brain shrinkage and may lead to Alzheimer disease.
Not a problem as I’ve quit smoking! Yay! Another point! Moving on…
4. High Sugar consumption
Too much sugar will interrupt the absorption of proteins and nutrients causing malnutrition and may interfere with brain development.
Teh “O” Ais Kurang Kurang Kurang Manis. Another point!
5. Air Pollution
The brain is the largest oxygen consumer in our body. Inhaling polluted air decreases the supply of oxygen to the brain, bringing about a decrease in brain efficiency.
Hmmmm… we all live in Kuala Lumpur all sure exposed to pollutant air. What can we expect? Nice cool wonderful and cleaner air to breath just like in Perth, Australia? Yeah! 10 years down the road maybe.
6. Sleep Deprivation
Sleep allows our brain to rest. Long term deprivation from sleep will accelerate the death of brain cells.
OK! I need to work to improve on this more. What’s the time now? 3:13AM! Shiats and I got a lot to work on. Err… Help?
7. Head covered while sleeping
Sleeping with the head covered, increases the concentration of carbon dioxide and decrease concentration of oxygen that may lead to brain damaging effects.
Oh Oh!… I have the habit of doing this. Shiats. Moving on…
8. Working your brain during illness
Working hard or studying with sickness may lead to a decrease in effectiveness of the brain as well as damage the brain.
SEE! I TOLD YOU! Don’t work when you are sick. Not good! Next!
9. Talking Rarely
Intellectual conversations will promote the efficiency of the brain.
Nope. I don’t think I have this habit. I listen a lot but that doesn’t mean I don’t talk a lot. Come on, I’m dealing with tough customers daily and only intellectually persuasive words can win them over.
10. Lacking in stimulating thoughts
Thinking is the best way to train our brain, lacking in brain stimulation thoughts may cause brain shrinkage.
No way I’m lacking stimulating thoughts. How to be lacking when your boss throws you a sales target comprising 8 digits and tells you “Go figure how you can achieve that in 2010!”. You tell me lah!
Wow! Let’s see. My score is 5 out of 10! Not bad what! In between! Haha.
I have to improve on all these lah if it is true. Come on… it is all over the internet! It must be true. I’ve recently went for a blood test and there is even signs of stress. I must start on my supplements already! This is not good!
Health is Wealth!
If you see that I’m awake and still online during the wee hours, scold me and remind me that I need to sleep early, okay?
This post should be up two weeks ago!
But, I was lazy and well, I was all alone in the “7″ so I had to wait till others were uploaded.
What is it?
This is what. Yours truly is featured online! Wheeee…
Thanks to CK for making me an “online celebrity“. I can’t tell you how grateful I am. Hehehe… I think I’m faring better than Kenny Sia now. Down you Mr. Sia! The online realm is MINE!.. All MINE!!… T_T (Gah. I don’t give two hoots on my traffic liao lah. Come what may.)
With that “online celebrity” status, my traffic jump threefold. I don’t know how should I handle my stardom now. Help!!! Should I start going all over Innit and start talking to everyone? Should I attend event and just hang out with the other “celebrities” wannabe? Should I make my own blogger’s name card now? Oh! Oh! Oh! Should I create my own fan page in Facebook too?
Okay, end all the craps.
I promise. Surabaya post will be up! Definitely!
… is to come online and write something on this humble blog of mine.
So much to write, so much had happened and so much more of other things…
But, I just wanna say…
“I miss you INTERNET”
Totally deprived of internet man. My Celcom phone bill will definitely skyrocket with all the email correspondence that I’ve been doing. I think they are charging RM 0.01 cents per kb usage. Oh crap, I don’t have unlimited usage wei. Nvm, company pay. Hmmpph..
What a geek! Come online already log on to WordPress and blog. -__-
I need to go and trouble shoot some petty matters. Catcha peeps…
Cars honking, people chattering, motorbikes buzzing, sirens blaring, construction knocking, water splashing, clock ticking…
Ah… the buzz of city life. That’s just one small part of it.
The past few days has been really crazy and hectic but fantastic. I’ve done a lot of talking, eating good food, driving around, entertaining clients, presenting business proposal, meeting people, Twittering and best of all keeping myself away from The Office and the cyber world. That explains a lot on why my Tweets keeps updating and it’s so funny how C.Ho went all blur asking how I could update my Tweets when I’m not online
It is good that I have a phone that can read emails. Thanks to you CK! If you ever reads this. I can reply urgent emails and things in The Office has been well taken care off so no more troubleshooting problems and I’m very happy for a great team supporting The Office.
Now, I’m back from a long day out today and sitting here at the very comfort of my office chair I feel that it is all coming back to me again. Got some few surprises here and there when I log on to the internet world.
But oh wells…
Just one month ago I had the most enjoyable yet craziest moment in my life. Working for AIESEC International Congress 2009 was something that many people in AIESEC would dream of doing. It was a real eye opener to the things that AIESEC does and really, I learn a lot during that conference. I still miss those great time I had.
It was a great cultural experience to understand people better and a great working of both hard work and crazy fun. Next would be AIESEC Exchange and I wonder if it would take place next year which I really do hope it would.
Time flies so fast and now, I’m back to my crazy working mode already. I sat down over the weekend to do a mini planning of my next course of life journey. Everything has been charted out in a small book. Discussions were made and a few things being planned are now running slowly.
The fun time is over and it is time to get serious now. What’s past is the past and time to turn over to a new page and start it up like fire.
It is time to wake up and get things moving. Time to plan ahead for the future for my family and of course myself (if the family part doesn’t materialize ).
Nothing beats fast internet.
Like, really fast!
I’m usually stuck at less than 1,000 kbps.
Now it is at 57.0 KB/s on average…
How can I not like it?
Okay, I’m gonna get back to my work…
I’ve got like my Surabaya trip post pending, no thanks to crashing Adobe Photoshop CS4 which is kinda complicated to explain.
I let you all know one big secret okay?
Don’t leak it out to others okay?
If you promise, I promise I will bring you out for a good dinner.
I’m sure now I can buy you nice nice super extravagant dinner at JW Marriott sure you eat till you cry wan…
Because now I am RICH!
(eeyeerrr look at my signature! I need my Photoshop back!!!)
Not very often I will entertain this kinda stupid spams… but I just couldn’t resist it lah.. I’m having a break from work and already no mood to spend my day concentrating on work…
How I wish I can be an instant millionaire. Dream on YapThomas!!!
Weekend kam fast fast puuhhllleaaassseeee…..
I’ve got my Facebook username! Muahhahaha…
Hmmm wondering what’s next with Facebook…
Oh yeah… I’ve got a lot of requests and messages and what not.
I will work on that later on. Also, heh… I have limited profile view. Only message will work, so leave me a message. I will clear all those requests and messages soon…
*base on YapThomas’ observation so far and NO, I’m not paid for this write up*
Now you see why I put a * at the end of my topic? Because, I don’t want other mobile broadband providers suing me or anyone else telling me that I’m wrong for putting up that statement.
You want the best mobile broadband? Here is YapThomas’ recommendation.

This is the kind of mobile broadband that people like me who is on constant move that demands a reliable, stable and fast internet connection on the go wants.
It has been years since I waited for a decent broadband. It has been 2 years now since Green Packet was awarded the WiMAX service here in Malaysia. The wait has been a worthy one.
Let me quote one sentence I wrote back in my March 2007 post.
“But, one particular company, namely GreenPacket is gonna kick everyone’s ass so big this time.“
I would say that… true to my words, they did so in mobile broadband. Or was it that I complained about them back in October 2008 that’s why they came out with the Wiggy?
What is Wiggy you ask? Just five basic knowledge about Wiggy from P1.
One of the features I look for in a mobile broadband is connectivity. It has to be constantly connected. Like how I tested Celcom Broadband on the road back in March 2009. But then again, that is not the connectivity that I want. I want a connectivity that doesn’t break off from time to time. I tried both Maxis Broadband and Celcom Broadband and it was horrible! I can’t even stay connected for a good 3 hour and it is very frustrating that when you are in the middle of your work, connection just cuts off.
Come let me show you how good this Wiggy is at connectivity. I was stayed connected for a good 17 hours. and the longest was nearly 29 hours! Keng or not!???
This is how small Wiggy is compared to an AA batery. I can carry it everywhere I go. Well, the same as Maxis and Celcom Broadband, but I think Wiggy looks way cooler…
(pix by DannyFoo)
During the media launch few weeks ago, Chief Marketing Officer of P1 Michael Lai said that we should bash them as hard as we could. I’ve only got one thing to bash.
“Can you please put more network coverage on the map and start kicking ass harder??!!“
That’s all I could bash, because with Wiggy I can do the followings which I can’t on Maxis Broadband and Celcom Broadband.
- I can load YouTube without major lagging problem…
- I get to upload pictures to Facebook…
- I get to connect to my VPN and use my booking system…
- I get to upload pictures to Flickr so that I can blog…
- I manage to finish download 1 movie!! Whoa.!!
Well, that’s kinda it. There are more but I don’t think I need to proof my point further.
So what are you waiting for? Grab a Wiggy and have fun now! Oh look, they are giving a 10GB of Fair Usage Treshold. With Celcom Broadband, I only get 5GB and I’m paying RM 139 for it! Talk about value, you know how to calculate lah okay…
Oh, one last note. I do really hope that the connection of Wiggy in my area will be the same. I will definitely complaint if in the the near future more and more people starts using Wiggy in my area and congest the connection. Definitely will…
That if P1 continue to let me use Wiggy for free or just end my trial period after 3 months. Maybe a discount will do lah.. I’m not greedy. I will write nice things if your product is nice to use. So far, it has been great.
