Developers beware…

Filed under: Announcement, Citizenry, Life, Malaysia, Uncategorized — bananachinese @ 10:14 pm

All strata properties residential or commercial purchasers and owners must know their basic rights…

Even mobile hand phone companies have to handover a good product to consumers. If got defects, need to do product recall or replace.

Why hor, those people who buy properties are so unwilling to stand up for their rights and suffer the irresponsible developers? Not even dare to stand up even though developer never establish proper accounts or JMB? (Joint Management Body). Aisay, you purchasers all are protected by law, so use your rights, please

It pays to know the facts on strata title, man…

Henrik Clausen CEO of Digi Telecommunications… is this still true?

Filed under: Announcement, Life, Malaysia, Repair — Tags: , , , , — bananachinese @ 12:07 am

No. No. No. I’m not going to write anything about Malaysia’s MH370 nor comment on Najib Razak’s government’s handling of the issue.

Anyways, talking about communication…..

Heard a lot of complaints on Digi nowadays and found below comment about Digi service from the internet.

Hey Henrik, is this still a problem for Digi now?

=====

Suganthi Ramalingam (Sue):
DiGi Telecommunications why the yellow man not following me anymore.. out of 10calls, 8calls are dropping. Service is really bad. I am searching high and low for signal everywhere I go. Please follow me, so that I can get good signal.. I miss you yellow man.. Where are you. I need you very badly 😦

Digi’s reply:
Hi all, we’re aware of the outage and our engineers are currently troubleshooting the problem. We’d like thank you for your patience while we restore our services
Hi – Can you please restart your phone to acquire the signal again?

To which, there was no reply to.

Suganthi Ramalingam (Sue):
DiGi Telecommunications i restart my phone every day and nothing helps.. this issue have been going on the last few weeks… previously it was only at Nusaputra, Puchong then even in Cyberjaya the problem is occurring. Even those ppl in Seremban are also having this issues. I am from Technical line,.. so please do not give me some suggestions/solution, just to keep me occupied or to keep me happy.. we all know very well you have capacity and bandwith issues. And so called upgrades you are doing at your end is not serving the purpose either. Its either the UAT is not done properly, change is not raised properly or the upgrades are being carried in a haphazard manor I do not know. Either way, you guys needs to do proper Capacity Mgmt, carry out proper UAT and implement proper Change Mgmt processes. majority of your subscribers are not happy with the current service. Just cause they are quiet doesnt mean they are happy, some just port to another carrier or just to frustrated to even say anything. Humble advise, pls establish a quick response team who can work round the clock and have the “Service Improvement plan” drafted out for service restoration, otherwise you are going to loose more clients than you already did… I have been very faithful to the yellow man, it’s been 9years. we have been having a very very long and faithful relationship.. As much as possible, i would love to remain with the yellow man, but if you guys do not fix the issue, guess, I need to look elsewhere, probably the blue or orange man…..

My comments:
We are in the era of smartphones, technically, we do not really need reboot/restart our phones. Even when are signals are at full bar, the problem does happen. Here again, what we are we expecting is not a nimble answer but more for Digi to admit that they are having issues, that you are doing everything you can restore the services. Add more signal towers or signal boosters Malaysia wide, if you have to. Do what it takes, let your customers know, give us a timeline, announce it on tv, FB, media. A real leader has the courage and has the capacity to admit the problems they have and at the same time, has teh confidence and tell us, stay with us, be patient with us, we will get this done. This will prove Digi to be a strong competitor, a responsible provider and a company who cares for their customers and ensures a long lasting trust relationship with the customer. Throw a freebie if you have to. This is where your loyal customers are born, this is where you make your name in the market. I am working for a huge MNC service provider company and I know how tedious is it to keep your customers happy. When there is an outage or service delivery issues, I know how much effort it takes to get that vote of confidence back. Never the less, that is what Service Provider industries are about. Whether you are a Telco, some big MNC company or small time retailers, it is only about one thing, KEEPING YOUR CUSTOMERS HAPPY, at all cost. Your customers either “Break you or Make you”. If you do not take care of your customers, they will run off to other service provider thus affecting the trust we have for Digi not to mention in the drop of sales. Then you will re-invent the wheel and go through a sales frenzy, lower your cost and try to win back the hearts and the cycle continues.

When you CARE for your customers, they will remain with you, no matter how bad the situation can be, cause we know you care and this is just a temporary glitch and you will make the ammendments, the soonest you can, cause you are RELIABLE. And you would definitely win the hearts of millions of Malaysian’s and people will sign up with Digi no matter what the price is and stick by you. That is the difference between a company that is just doing a business for profit sake and a company that still makes a profit but with the needs of the customers, well taken care of. Who you think will win this battle? Who you think, will make profit and emerge as a leader?
The world is emerging and with the Internet hype, and introduction of VoIP, and the emergence of Lync, Skype and Viber, video conferecing and etc.. etc.. things are either getting cheaper or technically “free”, by the minute and if Digi is to stand all and still able to make a profit, you gotta do someting different, think different. Care for your customers and you will win our VOTES and our HEARTS and our MONEY.

Check your baby bottles and toddler drinking cups etc

Filed under: Announcement, Family, news — Tags: , , , , — bananachinese @ 5:12 pm

Do you check your baby bottles, toddler’s drinking cups, etc to make sure it has no BPA?

Baby bottles and children’s drinking cups could no longer contain bisphenol A, or BPA, an estrogen-mimicking industrial chemical used in some plastic bottles and food packaging.

The chemical can leach into food, and a study of over 2,000 people found that more than 90 percent of them had BPA in their urine. Traces have also been found in breast milk, the blood of pregnant women and umbilical cord blood.

Reports of potentially negative health effects have made BPA notorious, especially among parents, and led to widespread shunning of products thought to contain the chemical. Canada, Chicago and Suffolk County, N.Y., have banned BPA from children’s products. In 2010, the F.D.A. said that it had “some concern about the potential effects of BPA on the brain, behavior and prostate gland of fetuses, infants and children.”

BPA has been used since the 1960s to make hard plastic bottles, cups for toddlers and the linings of food and beverage cans, including those that hold infant formula and soda. Until recently, it was used in baby bottles, but major manufacturers are now making bottles without it. Plastic items containing BPA are generally marked with a 7 on the bottom for recycling purposes.

No escape from new media effect

.

Any advertisement or Public Relations companies which do not have political experts/section, please do not attempt to  do political campaign or anything politics. Your political client’s future may be in danger because of your inadequacy.

*shudder for BN and PR*

Share with you article found published in Malaysia-today on 14 July 2011:

.

Unfortunately for stakeholders in Barisan Nasional and Pakatan Rakyat, Malaysia’s political rhythm for the upcoming 13th general election has changed to a new beat from 9 July 2011.

In this new political landscape where the rakyat hold supreme in the choice between Barisan and Pakatan, any forward looking players should now be urgently re-thinking their choice of campaign managers and teams who will play an important role to make or break the political incumbents’ careers or aspirants’ dreams.

Compared with Pakatan which has adopted heavy use of new media much earlier, Barisan is running behind in the race to articulate its messages on this platform. Whether by choice or due to an inability to engineer a mindset turnaround, Barisan’s team has also missed out chances to update its messaging and repair missed touchpoints. Perhaps it might be in serious need of a major overhaul of its voter communication bureaucracies.

For the influential segment of middle class voters who possess more confidence to make a stand on issues and demand for intelligent discourse, BN’s incongruent messages do not synchronize with the people’s vision of 1Malaysia. The incongruous noise also implies a lack of updated skills in political messaging by Barisan’s campaigners, promoters, speakers and spokesmen. One also suspects non-existent political knowhow in the advertising companies managing the BN coalition parties’ or candidate’s media accounts.

Some voters might recall being bombarded by ‘unreal’ messages from political advertisements mostly carried in mainstream newspapers in the 12th general election campaign. Due to its misalignment to voters’ sentiment, some might recall being amused by BN’s manifesto’s theme ‘Selamat, Aman, Makmur’ or MCA’s ad depicting its President still cycling around the new village.

Those messages may have worked well in the days before new media became a daily work, communication and information essential.

According to the Election Commission, Malaysia has 11.82 million registered voters after the supplementary electoral roll for the fourth quarter of 2010 was gazetted recently. In June 2010, there were 16.9 million internet users in Malaysia (representing 64.6% of the population) according to Internet World Stats.

Certainly these data presents a huge opportunity to extend the power of messaging beyond traditional platforms or hardsell to reach the hearts and minds of Gen X and Y families, especially the new voters.

The new media platform exposes its users to diverse perspectives and is a tool to politicize younger people. Today’s voters are disengaged from the traditional ideas of political loyalty and places more value on issues of governance and civil discourse.

Today’s middle class talk about values and rights of an individual. It may even be perceived as a form of cruelty, a turnoff or politically incorrect behavior to cast aspersion via character assassination or cliché to bespattering someone with metaphorical mud. Thence, it was no surprise that individuals ‘guilty’ of moral indiscretions were elected or appointed to office as the value creation from harnessing their career skills carried more weightage against other considerations.

No longer bound to thought limitations of mainstream newspapers, radio and television, your fellow citizens are free to watch and compare ideas on the worldwide internet almost everyday and communicate their expanded worldview to share with their families, relatives and friends in the rural areas or globally.

This complicates and presents a huge challenge to candidates contesting in the urban and semi-urban constituencies. Any political campaigners worth their salt must possess listening experience on the internet before embarking on the political trail to try to persuade voters to listen to their candidate’s message.

As always for political players and stakeholders, fresh approaches to politics are absolutely necessary to convince voters beyond traditional offers of lunch, dinner or charity.

There is no escaping the new media effect and for sure, at any given time, the world may be watching and sharing through the internet what one is saying today or have said yesterday.

Yellow mellow in Kuala Lumpur

Friend: BC, aren’t you going to blog on the BERSIH 2 brouhaha at all?

BC: No need, my dear. All the funnies have been spewed out already from Polis DiRaja Malaysia, Najib Razak, UMNO, PAS, Perkasa, MCA, PKR, DAP.

Ain’t nothing else left for me to articulate for the laughing bellies.

And on the harassment against the yellow colour, I’ve been wearing yellow on my skin since birth, nothing else can change me essence.

Being MCA and the sunset of the Chinese cause

.

Without the MCA spirit, what its leaders say and do are despised by its own grassroot and the venerable Chinese newspapers.

In the minds of the grassroot, the real MCA man/woman wouldn’t speak of imagined clash of Islam taking over race. Or to imply that Malaysian Chinese ceases to be a Chinese if he/she cannot speak in Mandarin.

MCA leaders have been unthinkingly caught in a bind of its own making that, being MCA was an absolute requirement to fight for a Chinese cause. The trick worked fine, way back in time before negotiating for 1957’s project Merdeka.

But now it is 2011, with courtesy of compulsory basic primary and some secondary schooling, Malaysians have got some education and been taught some academic thinking skills (I hope you have acquired them skills, if not all, some?).

Shall we ask again does the call “MCA fights for Chinese rights” sounds right today, in the dawning of Bangsa Malaysia?

In light of today’s reality, many wondered if there might possibly be a new lifeline lease to MCA, whether if it has leaders of resolute to rejuvenate MCA from the outdated agenda, that being MCA is not an absolute requirement to fight for a Chinese cause.

It is telling that nothing is done by leaders of MCA so far to give it a new lease of life through an updated constitution.

This jives with the groundswell truth that MCA has always been first and foremost to protect their own businesses and the economic returns.

It is a sunset era for MCA leadership of Chua Soi Lek, Ng Yen Yen, Kong Cho Ha, Chor Chee Heung, Liow Tiong Lai… (Go here to fill up with names and worthiness of MCA Central Committee members)

Guilty. Malaysia Members of Parliament

Was too angry to post anything last few days.

How can one not be angry when a good man was betrayed in death by the laws of the country and a man who caused his sufferings and eventual death was virtually let off with a slap on the wrist? Imagine his family’s feelings at being let down by law.

Read this.

Do you know, we cannot blame the courts or the judge, as they can only be guided by laws set by Parliament. We have to be aware the instrument to protect the country and its people is the Malaysia laws and in this case, the transport laws have not moved with the times!

How come important laws have not been updated before we were told by Najib Razak that we should dream to become a high income nation?

What have all our Member of Parliaments and NGOs been doing all these years? So busy with Barisan Nasional or Pakatan Rakyat partisanship that they neglected to fight to update laws to protect the real rakyat?

Don’t give me the excuse ‘because one is not the government, one cannot do anything’. It is now time to name and find out if any of our MPs has been faithfully ‘memperjuangkan’ laws be updated to protect the rakyat. Let’s see if we can make up even a minimum total of 10% from the 222 MPs in the house fulfiling their responsibility to push for laws updating.

MPs, you are the ones who should say sorry to the nation, you are part of the body responsible that made Malaysians lives cheap enough for hit and run perpetrators all these years.

This coming general election, we must question all election candidates thoroughly before we even consider to donate a vote to them – Ask them bluntly and demand for substantive reply on what will they do to push laws to be updated so that justice can be fair to the people, or a husband, a father, a grandfather like Ong Kim Koon. Rakyat should not be apologetically relegated to just a number in the statistics just because of archaic laws – MPs do you job or risk be replaced in next GE.

Still am very angry.
