The significance of my birth date: December 3rd!

I'm a December 3rd baby! My friend showed me this astrology article which I found pretty interesting. I'm not a fan of astrology, as I believe that our fate is determined by God, but it was a pretty interesting read.

The highlighted parts of the article that I either like or is relative to my personal life. Enjoy the read :)
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
December 3 Sagittarius folks have personality plus. Their charm, good looks, and sex appeal make them appealing. They enjoy living the good life yet always manage to keep in touch with spiritual values. They have an iron will and can stand up for themselves. Although known for a well-developed ego, this does not detract from their likability.

Friends and Lovers

December 3 natives have a ceaseless interest in people and are never without a supply of friends. They are adventurous lovers and thrive on the challenge of pursuing love, but they may lose interest once the chase is over. They have trouble making a commitment, since they are likely to equate it with giving up personal freedom.

Children and Family
Though they may have had modest beginnings, December 3 people often credit early hardships with their competitive spirit. They thrive on challenges. December 3 men and women feel it is important to teach their own children the value of competition, but they have the good sense to know where to draw the line.

Career and Finances
People born on this date may become accustomed to trading on their personality, but their real talent is their creativity. They attract good luck, especially in finance, and have the potential to make a lot of money. They are not good at holding on to what they earn, since their generous nature gives them the impulse to spend.


Keeping fit is important to these men and women, who want to look great, feel great, and live to a ripe old age. Many find it difficult to keep weight off problem areas. They are party-goers, which often implies overindulgence in alcohol. Although this can be the case, it is usually confined to social occasions.

Dreams and Goals
Being able to make a living doing what they love is a priority in the lives of December 3 people. They work hard to achieve long-range goals, yet they may have problems with the short-term. They see the big picture rather than small details. It may be more challenging to find success on a personal level than in their professional lives.

The new beginning of an old journey...

As most of you (or at least my friends) have known, I have always had a passion for music and sound systems, and over the many many years since I was a young boy, I have managed to learn several different instruments. I began dj-ing and live sound long before picking up any other instruments and it has always been a bitter sweet memory for me about my dj-ing life almost 5 years ago, where I've met alot of good people who supported and pushed me to improve myself as well as some whom later revealed their not so nice side of them. Since my hiatus from the art of mixing, I have than pursued to further my knowledge in other instruments such as guitar, drums and the bass. 

After going a long circle, I've finally returned to the dance music scene. Much has changed since than, as the usage of vinyls are close to extinction and CDs have become optional when playing in a club. Now mixing has become much more convenient as mixers have tons of built in effects and CDJs (or DVJs) can now play videos! We can even integrate our computer software to our mixers and turntables which leads to the  unnecessariness of burning those hundreds of CDs and carrying those heavy CD bags to gigs.

Lots of things has changed, but it's only got me steaming for more! In my pursuit to further my musical knowledge, I will continue to press on to further improve myself both as a musician and a performer!

Guess you just cant put me in a box!

Being a somewhat "psychology" junkie! I do enjoy understanding people and the consequences of actions and reactions. Today I did another two personality tests from two different sites ( and Goddessflight), which both came out with different results on my personality! The first was bearable as the results showed me to be an ENTP (The Inventor), the other showed me a whole opposite of what I would have expected myself to be ISTP. These two are very different results and explanation from the initial ENFP which I was so proud of, ironically, when you read the explanation of these personality types, they do SOMEWHAT reflect on the type of person that you are. To conclude, I guess people's personality really does vary to the mood their in and the situations that their going through as well as the environment that surrounds them. People act differently in different situations, we can see this by the structure of the questions asked in these different personality quizzes. So don't limit yourself to just one personality type, just be proud of who you are and be yourself! 

For the fun of it, I'm gonna list down the details on ENTP and ISTP below! Enjoy!

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - 

ENTP - "Inventor". Enthusiastic interest in everything and always sensitive to possibilities. Non-conformist and innovative. 3.2% of the total population.

Inventors begin building gadgets and mechanisms as young children, and never really stop, though as adults they will turn their inventiveness to many kinds of organizations, social as well as mechanical. There aren't many Inventors, say about two percent of the population, but they have great impact on our everyday lives. With their innovative, entrepreneurial spirit, Inventors are always on the lookout for a better way, always eyeing new projects, new enterprises, new processes. Always aiming to "build a better mousetrap."

Inventors are keenly pragmatic, and often become expert at devising the most effective means to accomplish their ends. They are the most reluctant of all the types to do things in a particular manner just because that's the way they have been done. As a result, they often bring fresh, new approaches to their work and play. They are intensely curious and continuously probe for possibilities, especially when trying to solve complex problems. Inventors are filled with ideas, but value ideas only when they make possible actions and objects. Thus they see product design not as an end in itself, but as a means to an end, as a way of devising the prototype that works and that can be brought to market. Inventors are confident in their pragmatism, counting on their ability to find effective ways and means when they need them, rather than making a detailed blueprint in advance. A rough idea is all they need to feel ready to proceed into action.

Inventors often have a lively circle of friends and are interested in their ideas and activities. They are usually easy-going, seldom critical or carping. Inventors can be engaging conversationalists, able to express their own complicated ideas and to follow the ideas of others. When arguing issues, however, they may deliberately employ debate skills to the serious disadvantage of their opponents.

Inventors are usually non-conformists in the workplace, and can succeed in many areas as long as the job does not involve too much humdrum routine. They make good leaders on pilot projects that test their ingenuity. And they are skilled at engineering human relationships and human systems, quickly grasping the politics of institutions and always wanting to understand the people within the system rather than tell them what to do. No matter what their occupation, however, Inventors display an extraordinary talent for rising to the demands of even the most impossible situations. "It can't be done" is a challenge to an Inventor and elicits a reaction of "I can do it."

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - 


Naturally reserved and thriving on adventure and challenge, you much prefer action to conversation. You also have a penchant for observing what is going on around you. You enjoy activities that require hands on skills. Resourceful and independent, your motivations come from within you. You are a collector of information, rational, realistic and pragmatic. People often have a difficult time figuring you out, and you will remain a mystery to many. 

In relationships you are not one to have deep talks, but would rather let your actions speak for you. You display your love and care for others by doing practical things for them. You are not one to take on too many commitments or obligations--if any. You need your time alone and even though you are probably very loyal, this may cause conflict at times. You are not one to start fights, but you wont back away from one either. 

We DO kind of have a similar smile don't we!

Optimistic Thinking vs Positive Thinking

I'd like to believe that I'm an optimistic person. Often when asked to describe myself, I would proudly list optimism as one of my traits. In an interesting early morning conversation with a distant friend, we came across the topic on the differences between optimistic thinking and positive thinking. She was debating that the two are the same, and I on the other hand believed (or would like to believe) that there were differences between the two.

Hence, I sought the help of my good friend Google, and made a search. An interesting read from CoachKip  described the difference between positive thinking and optimistic in simple terms.

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - 

Positive Thinking

With positive thinking people say only good things.  They always look to find the positive meaning in something.  They go out convincing themselves that if they think positively then good things will happen.  Thinking positively usually has people saying it out loud “the economy is down but there is only one way for it to go.”  Positive thinkers often times come on too strong and it puts people off, and pushes them away.

Optimistic Thinkers

With optimistic thinking people they only feel good things.  Everything always has a good side to the optimistic thinker.  No one can ever convince an optimistic thinker that something is negative once the optimistic thinker has made up their mind.  Optimistic thinkers tend to keep their thoughts to themselves, there is no need for them to tell anyone that they are optimistic, people just know.  People tend to follow optimistic thinkers, and optimistic thinkers tend to attract more people to them.
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - 

At the end of the day, I stood firmly on my believes that there really was a difference between the two and that I am indeed an optimistic person!

EPF Clarifies Chain Email On Nomination Of Age 55 Members

There has been a circulation of chain mail regarding EPF members whom have turned 55 have to  renominate their beneficiary. Just like most chain mails, this is just SPAM!
In response to this mail, the GM of public relations released a statement on the KWSP website  that only members who have made an age 55 withdrawal before the 1st February 2008 needs to perform a renomination of their beneficiary and for members whom have made their age 55 withdrawal after the stated date remains valid.

Do your research before forwarding chain mails to avoid unnecessary panic.


- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - 

The Employees Provident Fund (EPF) would like to stress that the nomination of EPF members who have reached the age of 55 remains valid. This clarification comes in response to the recent chain email that claimed nominations of EPF members who have turned 55 are void and that they have to renominate.

We would like to clarify that an EPF member only has to renominate his or her beneficiary upon turning 55 years of age if he or she had made an Age 55 Withdrawal before 1 February 2008. Therefore, if this member were to continue to contribute to the EPF, he or she would need to make a new nomination.

For EPF members who have made Age 55 Withdrawal after 1 February 2008, their nomination continues to be valid unless a new nomination is made to replace the earlier one. This also applies to members who are 55 years of age but have not made the said withdrawal.

We hope that this statement will put to rest any confusion regarding this issue. The EPF wishes to assure its members that their nomination is safe and secure.

Insufficient Memory?

Here's another way of clearing up your phone's memory!

Over time our phones stores up large amounts of data in their internal memory which causes lagging and other problems like insufficient memory space which limits the phone's ability to carry out certain tasks. I've written a guide before this on certain methods on how to clear up some space but apparently it hasn't been enough. Through numerous feedback from some of the readers and friends, I proudly bring to you new methods of creating more space!

#1 - Clearing up your FACEBOOK!
1. Click "Menu" - Go to "Settings"
2. Click on "Applications"
3. Click on "Manage Applications"
4. In the tab on top of the screen, click on "All"
5. Look for "Facebook" (if you have the application) - mine is currently storing 11.50MB
6. Open it and click "Clear Data"
7. A screen will appear saying "All of this applications data will be deleted permanently..." (you will probably have to log in again when you access your application)
8. Alternatively you could just click "Clear cache" which will save you less space but maintain certain data.
9. Wah-La!  My application memory has gone down to 5.09MB

#2 - Clearing up your FACEBOOK for HTC Sense!
1. Click "Menu" - Go to "Settings"
2. Click on "Applications"
3. Click on "Manage Applications"
4. In the tab on top of the screen, click on "All"
5. Look for "Facebook for HTC Sense"
6. Open it and click "Clear Data"
7. A screen will appear saying "All of this applications data will be deleted permanently..."
8. And your done!

#3 - You could repeat it for your internet browsers as well which will clear up your history and saved passwords etc.  
I can't advice on this because I personally don't store up data on my browser.

You'd probably have cleared up quite a bit of memory by now and bought yourself some time before the data starts to build up again! Hope you enjoyed this post! Cheers~!!

Android: Low on space. Phone storage space is getting low.

This is probably the biggest pain in the ass that we Android users face. I can't really remember the circumstances as I've cleared mine quite awhile back, but it does include problems like not being able to update your apps and logging into your Gmail account to name a few.

The solution? Clearing up your Android's internal memory! Why? Our phone uses it's internal memory as it's RAM therefore the more space there is on the phone the faster it will function (my own theory... no idea if there's any truth to it! LOL!) and the other obvious reasons is removing that irritating icon at the top and being able to access our mail and update our apps in the marketplace.

From my experience, there's only 3 ways worth your time to solve this problem.

1. Rooting your android (Not recommended)
I like to keep things simple and my android is not rooted as well. But yeah, this way we are able to transfer all our data freely from our phone's internal memory and our SD card as well as other benefits which I will not be explaining in detail.

2. Apps2SD (compulsory for all froyo users)
App 2 SD
Just download it from the marketplace. This application is used to transfer movable applications to your SD card easily. The down side? Not all apps can be moved which still uses alot of space.. but it's not a major thing, you'll find out why in the next method.

3. Clearing up unnecessary Contacts Data. (Most effective!)
Our Androids stores up alot of unnecessary contacts data with it's syncing and actually uses up most of the phone's internal memory. Hence clearing it will probably give you an extra 20 to 100++ MB depending on how many contacts you have in your list and the amount of data stored in it.

DON'T WORRY: YOU WON'T LOSE ANY OF YOUR CONTACTS OR THEIR CONTACT DETAILS (e.g. name, phone number, address, email, facebook etc etc etc)

It's been awhile since i've done it and I'll try to remember the steps. So if it work's leave me a comment!

Step 1: Back up
1. Go to All Apps
2. Open People/Contacts
3. Press Menu
4.Click on Import/Export
5. Export to SD card
6. Click Google. *take note of where and the name of your file is for which Google/SIM/Phone*
 (it should look like this /sdcard/google_username_000001.vcf)
7. Confirm export - Click OK
8. Repeat steps for SIM and Phone *remember to take note of the file location*

*this step takes quite awhile if you have alot of contacts on your phone

Optional: to be really safe you can backup your contact files to your computer in case anything goes wrong =)

Step 2: Clearing the Contacts Storage
1. Go to Settings
2. Go to Applications
3. Go to Manage Applications
4. On the tabs menu click on All
5. Click on Contacts Storage
You will see a large amount of data and storage space used here!
6. Click Clear Data - this will delete your entire contact database so make sure you have done the backup steps or you'll lose all your contacts!

Your data and storage should be at 0.0MB, if it's not you can go to the People application earlier and individually delete all of them to prevent duplicated contacts.

Step 3: Restoring Contacts
1. Go to All Apps
2. Open People/Contacts
3. Press Menu
4. Click on Import/Export
5. Click Import from SD card
6. Click Google
7. Click Import one vCard file
8. Click on the file you've noted down earlier in Step 1
(e.g. google_username_000001.vcf)
9. Repeat for all steps accordingly for Phone.

Step 4: Syncing your Contacts (Optional unless your really need to... cause this will just cause another build up of low storage memory)
1. Go to Settings
2. Click on Accounts & sync
3. Turn on your Auto-sync (this will sync your phone contacts and data with your facebook, google, twitter etc etc.)

Thats it! You will notice that your phone will have ALOT of extra internal memory.

Note: This was written entirely on memory and the author will not be held responsible for any damage occurred or lost of data in your Android. There are more accurate and detailed guides about this on other pages if you want to be safe.
- I personally tried this method with my phone. My contact storage before clearing the contact storage was 19.43 MB and after following the tutorial, my contacts storage went down to 4.07 MB. Thanks! - Jason , Malaysia

- since clearing the contacts storage really wasnt enough to solve my space problem. i went and cleared data for my fb, mail, dialer storage and dunno what else. everyhing is fine.. except, all my msgs are gone. LOL, but return...i get 50mb freed up. - Joanne, Malaysia

An ENFP revealed - A portrait of my personality.

Here's an interesting read that my friend recommended to me. Read through it if you want to understand my personality (or other ENFPs) personality better. Enjoy!

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
As an ENFP, your primary mode of living is focused externally, where you take things in primarily via your intuition. Your secondary mode is internal, where you deal with things according to how you feel about them, or how they fit in with your personal value system.
ENFPs are warm, enthusiastic people, typically very bright and full of potential. They live in the world of possibilities, and can become very passionate and excited about things. Their enthusiasm lends them the ability to inspire and motivate others, more so than we see in other types. They can talk their way in or out of anything. They love life, seeing it as a special gift, and strive to make the most out of it.

ENFPs have an unusually broad range of skills and talents. They are good at most things which interest them. Project-oriented, they may go through several different careers during their lifetime. To onlookers, the ENFP may seem directionless and without purpose, but ENFPs are actually quite consistent, in that they have a strong sense of values which they live with throughout their lives. Everything that they do must be in line with their values. An ENFP needs to feel that they are living their lives as their true Self, walking in step with what they believe is right. They see meaning in everything, and are on a continuous quest to adapt their lives and values to achieve inner peace. They're constantly aware and somewhat fearful of losing touch with themselves. Since emotional excitement is usually an important part of the ENFP's life, and because they are focused on keeping "centered", the ENFP is usually an intense individual, with highly evolved values.
Neil Strauss the author of the best selling book "The Game: Penetrating the Secret
Society of Pickup Artists" is also an ENFP!
An ENFP needs to focus on following through with their projects. This can be a problem area for some of these individuals. Unlike other Extraverted types, ENFPs need time alone to center themselves, and make sure they are moving in a direction which is in sync with their values. ENFPs who remain centered will usually be quite successful at their endeavors. Others may fall into the habit of dropping a project when they become excited about a new possibility, and thus they never achieve the great accomplishments which they are capable of achieving.

Most ENFPs have great people skills. They are genuinely warm and interested in people, and place great importance on their inter-personal relationships. ENFPs almost always have a strong need to be liked. Sometimes, especially at a younger age, an ENFP will tend to be "gushy" and insincere, and generally "overdo" in an effort to win acceptance. However, once an ENFP has learned to balance their need to be true to themselves with their need for acceptance, they excel at bringing out the best in others, and are typically well-liked. They have an exceptional ability to intuitively understand a person after a very short period of time, and use their intuition and flexibility to relate to others on their own level.

Because ENFPs live in the world of exciting possibilities, the details of everyday life are seen as trivial drudgery. They place no importance on detailed, maintenance-type tasks, and will frequently remain oblivous to these types of concerns. When they do have to perform these tasks, they do not enjoy themselves. This is a challenging area of life for most ENFPs, and can be frustrating for ENFP's family members.

Jerry Seinfeld and Bill Clinton are amongst other famous ENFPs!
An ENFP who has "gone wrong" may be quite manipulative - and very good it. The gift of gab which they are blessed with makes it naturally easy for them to get what they want. Most ENFPs will not abuse their abilities, because that would not jive with their value systems.

ENFPs sometimes make serious errors in judgment. They have an amazing ability to intuitively perceive the truth about a person or situation, but when they apply judgment to their perception, they may jump to the wrong conclusions.

ENFPs who have not learned to follow through may have a difficult time remaining happy in marital relationships. Always seeing the possibilities of what could be, they may become bored with what actually is. The strong sense of values will keep many ENFPs dedicated to their relationships. However, ENFPs like a little excitement in their lives, and are best matched with individuals who are comfortable with change and new experiences.

Having an ENFP parent can be a fun-filled experience, but may be stressful at times for children with strong Sensing or Judging tendancies. Such children may see the ENFP parent as inconsistent and difficult to understand, as the children are pulled along in the whirlwind life of the ENFP. Sometimes the ENFP will want to be their child's best friend, and at other times they will play the parental authoritarian. But ENFPs are always consistent in their value systems, which they will impress on their children above all else, along with a basic joy of living.
Anakin Skywalker and Jar Jar Binks, the ENFPs from Star Wars
ENFPs are basically happy people. They may become unhappy when they are confined to strict schedules or mundane tasks. Consequently, ENFPs work best in situations where they have a lot of flexibility, and where they can work with people and ideas. Many go into business for themselves. They have the ability to be quite productive with little supervision, as long as they are excited about what they're doing.

Because they are so alert and sensitive, constantly scanning their environments, ENFPs often suffer from muscle tension. They have a strong need to be independent, and resist being controlled or labelled. They need to maintain control over themselves, but they do not believe in controlling others. Their dislike of dependence and suppression extends to others as well as to themselves.

ENFPs are charming, ingenuous, risk-taking, sensitive, people-oriented individuals with capabilities ranging across a broad spectrum. They have many gifts which they will use to fulfill themselves and those near them, if they are able to remain centered and master the ability of following through.

What's your personality type?

I just did a personality test at and this is what came out.
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - 

> You are an ENFP (Extravert, iNtuitive, Feeler, Perceiver)
ENFPs represent between 6 and 8% of the U.S. population
Curious, energetic, adaptable, and creative, ENFPs like considering unconventional approaches. They enjoy batting around ideas and finding creative solutions and are energized and intrigued by new possibilities and anything out of the ordinary. ENFPs tend to be talkative, enthusiastic, playful, and generally fun-loving people. Warm and caring, ENFPs have strong personal values upon which they base most decisions. Conversations with ENFPs can be very circular as they excitedly move from one topic to the next, making connections and associations.
Unconventional and occasionally irreverent, they pride themselves on their uniqueness and originality. Optimistic, and spontaneous, ENFPs have a strong sense of the possible. For them, life is an exciting drama. Because they are so interested in possibilities, ENFPs see significance in all things and prefer to keep lots of options open.

Necessity vs Luxury

Here's a post that has been procrastinated for like a few months... damn procrastination sucks!! Anyway here we go. Does this situation sound familiar?

Person A (Gadget freak): I just got my new iPad! So cheap summo...
Person B (Traditional old fashionist) : necessary meh... I don understand why you waste your money on such things...
Person A: but it's the latest trend! how can you survive without it!! It can do everything... do your home work, work as a tv, play games, keep you organized, use as a brouchure, etc etc etc...
Person B : what for you need this? you have a computer, a tv, hands and legs, an phone already... you just waste too much money on unimportant things...

Hmm.. maybe that's not such a good example... but yeah, my point is everybody's opinion on things are different based on personalities, surroundings, hobbies and interests. In the 20th century, there is no more fixed system. Back then necessity used to be to have food on the table, a roof over our head, clothes to wear and everything else would be a luxury. NOW... times has changed! What may be a luxury to some has become a necessity to others!
Here are some really good examples of things that have become a necessity to some or most but may remain a luxury to others...

1. AIRCOND - I swear i don't think i'll be able to sleep in this Malaysian weather if not for air condititioning...
2. Cars
3. Microwaves
4. INTERNET - Honestly... how many of you think you can survive without the internet?
5. Computers
6. Astro
7. King sized beds
etc etc etc...

Well you get the point there. And caught up in the quick modernization of our "technological" era, some things which used to be necessity has now become obsolete or luxury. Do you remember dial-up internet? Jaring or tmNet? it used to be a luxury and evolved into a necessity for most and has now become obsolete. How bout antic automobiles? Morris Miners? Beatles? Vespa? It was once a necessary and became obsolete and now become a luxury to some collectors.

What i'm trying to get across here is, before you question someone about what their needs are or what is a luxury to them and such, we ourselves have to understand that every person is different in terms of their hobbies, personalities and surroundings. It may seem that your friend wants an iPad for the sake of getting one, but it may be a necessity for his job to enable him to explain to the clients easier or work on the move. Imagine telling Slash that he doesn't need a guitar? Or telling David Beckham that he doesn't need soccer boots... 

So don't narrow up your necessities and consider everything else a luxury... If you really have a hobby or interest in something, work hard for it, save up for it and make it your necessity and by making other things your luxury you can differentiate your priorities and are more likely at getting those things you've always wanted. We can't have everything in life, but we can have what we really want.
What are your necessities? 
Which are your luxuries...

Let's talk NICE GUYS!

Are you a nice guy?
Well I came across this interesting read in where they were talking about nice guys. It's pretty true... I know alot of nice guys myself and have also been in that "zone" until i came across "the game". Well frankly there's nothing wrong with being a nice guy, except the fact that you don't get laid, you end out living in your parents basement till you're 30 because everyone steps on you to climb up the social (and corporate) ladder, you have no "real" friends and don't have the guts to take risks and speak your mind in fear of hurting someone or loosing a friend. There's really nothing wrong with it... not to mention that some people can't imagine themselves being known as an ass or having a bad image. Seriously... there's nothing wrong with being in the "friend zone" of the girl you have loved your whole life, while she goes out with an ass that you know will screw her life up... Nope it's not wrong, and therefore you should just not continue reading this post if you're fine with that. 
*Good bye Mr. Nice Guy! It was nice to meet you *

Alright back to business. Frankly I have nothing wrong with nice guys, well other than the fact that their trying to be "nice" all the time. But seriously, I really believe in improving one's self. Everybody should be given an equal chance to fight for their rights and what they believe in. And I stand by one theory, that is, anybody is capable of anything and that any guy can get any girl he wants! (with the right guidance of course!) 

For the record, I'm not here to tell you to be and ass or a jerk or what not. I'm just encouraging you readers not to be a pushover and that there is more to you than there really is. Again like many of my previous posts, you are not the only "Nice Guy" out there and yes many girls DO like nice guys, it's just your job to get them to NOTICE YOU FIRST before they can like you.

Think about it! Here's the article from AskMen.

For the longest time, we have had to keep our mouths shut. But now you’re in the company of men.

The "Nice Guy"

Historically, there is no greater kiss of death than being labeled a “nice guy.” Sure, it’s great when you’re 10, sporting your Sunday suit and your mom is calling you nice. However, when you’re a full-grown man trying to make his mark at work and get his way with the ladies, the last thing you ever want to be known as is the nice guy. But why, Dean? Why is being a nice guy so bad? More than likely, if you’re asking that question, it’s too late and you’re sweet and soft. But here they are, the key concepts of life that nice guys will never understand.

Your Back Was Made For Walking 

Gentlemen, here’s a little piece of information: Women are genetically inclined to walk all over men. (Ladies, if you don’t like that, remember, you are in the company of men.) Men, the onus is on us to defend ourselves. Most of what you think of as nice is really you being a pussy. Maybe it’s always calling her rather than putting it on her to call; maybe it’s letting her stand you up without any protest. The more you bend over backward for her, the more you’ll be expected to -- and with no reciprocation or appreciation. Realize that you can be a confident, desirable male without being a slave in waiting.

Women Want To Be Objectified 

Nice guys tend to be sensitive and emotional; sometimes women want to be strictly physical. She wants a man who is decisive enough to say he wants to have sex. If you wait for her to initiate this, you may as well take her home to your bad boy buddy. Be an asshole to her just to be an asshole? No. Be confident because you’re a man? Definitely. The reason women like the bad boy is because he is not afraid to say what he wants (which is her). She likes to know that she is  physically desired more than she likes to hear your sonnets and love poems insinuating that you care. 

You're Seen As A Pushover

It’s not just her, it's also her friends (and your friends) who see you as a pushover, and that growing opinion and impression is reinforcing her distaste for you. You’ll end up being her best friend and everyone’s doormat. Being the nice guy will leave you hearing about how another jackass broke her heart (after she gave him the best sex ever) and it will leave you in an entry position forever. Not to mention you’ll be the guy who’s always helping people move, listening to everyone’s problems and never having anyone reciprocate your efforts.    

Man Up

Your strategy is now your identity. You thought you were being nice, when in fact you were becoming the “nice guy.” Nice guys will never understand that standing up for yourself, objectifying women and ending your status as a pushover will be the key to success in the bedroom, the boardroom and life in general.

Fixing Unifi!

Alright here's the deal... I just got unifi installed and got all excited over it! Epic!! Went on installing the wireless settings for my laptop, uncle's laptop, brothers laptop... and when it came to my dad's laptop, we couldn't detect the unifi network! After trying and trying and restarting and restarting... things didn't get better... especially it being an old underpowered machine, the startup time takes about 5 to 10 minutes, which frustrated me even more!! Hence...
Yeah... I wish...
Anyway I went ahead and did some research which brought me over to this dude's blog, which reveals some security flaws with unifi. Check it out here! This dude knows all the shit about unifi! Except when it comes to the latest firmware 7.09 for the D-Link router. 
Like seriously I spent 3 hours medaling with the shit trying to use it as a bridge to my previous router, but naaaahhhhh... doesnt work with the latest firmware. REMEMBER: ALWAYS BACK UP YOUR SETTINGS BEFORE TRYING ANYTHING!

Well let's cut to the chase... I noticed this on my dad's laptop wireless network center 

- The capability of your network adapter does not match the requirements of the network

I figured that it's probably my the computer's network adapter just ain't "canggig" enough to handle N-wireless settings and that I had to buy an external network adapter. Luckily, I'm a cheapskate and don't want to give the tenants of digital mall that hundred bucks or so, therefore I gave it one last search before giving up and I came across this in LYN!

1) Login to via a LAN cable.
Username: admin
Password: telekom (the password could be blank)

2) Click "Wireless Setup" on the left-hand menu.

3) Click "Manual Wireless Connection Setup" button.

4) Go to "Wireless Network Global Settings" section.

5) Untick "Enable Auto Channel Selection" checkbox.

6) Set the "Wireless Channel" number to 11.

7) Click "Save Settings" button.

Your router will reboot and it'll take a while, i.e., 2 to 3 minutes.

Once it has come back online, you should be able to detect the wifi and connect to it.

And Waaa-LAaaa!! It works! My dad's computer can now use Unifi!!

For those who faces a similar problem! Do not fear, salvation is just 2 minutes away!
