Finaly, Everything is ok.

Gosh…… Finally I got my laptop adapter RM115, new server motherboard RM400, new RAID Card RM300, new 120GB x 2 HDD RM700. What a bad week for me, took 3 days to make my wallet empty! Now is only early of the month….

But, it’s glad everything is on track now. Got to work hard and earn back the losses. Good experience on data recovery and hardware RAID. I got invest on a intermediate level – kind of RAID card, to cut down recovery time. In case there is HDD burnt again.

Basicaly, I wish weekend coming soon. Then I can rest and work on new server configuration. Probably will work on python programming next. There is an open source meet up tonight, the topics are FreeBSD Jail/Virtual Machine and Asterisk (PBX/VOIP open source). Beside that Ow is going to announce his “secret project” that I work with him. Everybody are welcome!

China Mama and China Daugther – Beware!

Look! Malaysian – Beware of China People in Malaysia. Ah, damn… sad story, this is another morale of the story. Read it on. Today, after finished lunch with my fellow colleague, I am heading to take ERL to Kuala Lumpur International Airport. I’m about… let me count, I think is 10 foot step, will reach the counter and buy the ERL ticket. Suddently, there is one girl(UNKNOWN) stop me, the language slang from her mouth — Ya, China Girl.

Story goes here, she told me that she is short of cash and need money to fly back to Shang Hai, China. She shown me her passport, china identification card, company name card, fligh tickets to Hong Kong. The story is damn perfect, she told me money is finish using and her credit card already reach the limit. Beside that, she needs some cash from Hong Kong go to Shang Hai, and continue bla bla bla. Finally, the point is here, she wants to borrow RM150 from and she said will TT the money to me when she reach Shang Hai. She get my phone no, name card and everthing which she needs.

At first, of course I don’t believe. Then … “Da Ta!” Her mum show up, a very old woman, which is grandma type. Come to me and said “Young man, we need your help, we are really out of cash and hope you can give us a hand and allow us safely go back our homeland. haih, I am such a good person, the grandma explain til so…… ….. ….. then i take out RM150 and borrow them. Grandma said, once they arrive Shang Hai will give me a call. Let me know they arrive there safely and TT the money to me.

Ok, money on their hand, I am rushing to the ERL. While I am in the ERL, I took out the name card and find out what’s her email address, was thinking to send an email to her and remind her to return RM150 to me. OH MY GOD! FUCK, what the hell. Her email address zhangli@asia.com! Wow, ASIA.com can you believe she works with ASIA.com? I start to suspect is the domain available, since ASIA.com is not a _HOT_ domain everybody want. I made called to my colleague, ask them check is ASIA.com a recycling company(Her name card wrote that is a recycling company). Hahaha.. what is ASIA.COM? Check out your own, next I ask them to host the domain name see wether got MX mail server running or not. Yea, got, telnet to ASIA.COM port 110. Trying send an email to zhangli@asia.com — USER UNKNOWN. Oh…. now I know…. Paul Ooi got cons by one China Mama and China Daugther!

The morale of the story,
– Act you do not know Mandarin when you see China people
– Do not simply give money to people, no matter with old grandma or what
– Ask China people go China Embassy if they need help!

Suck, RM150 gone! Am now in KLIA terminal, AirAsia delay the flight again. This is the 6th times I took AirAsia, 4 out of 6 times I experience with the delayed flight. What to do.. so cheap.. Wait lo.

Safely arrive home, good landing.
