End of Year End of Month End Of week End of the Day

Left 2 days for November , and i’m busy closing yours truly small business account. And yes, doing account thingy can be so tiring especially when there’s a lot of thing you forget to ‘remind’ yourself.

And juggling between my ‘official’ work and my ‘afterwork’ work really tiring. I have to switch on my official work at 7am in the morning, and close by 7pm at night. By 9pm i’ll start my ‘afterwork’ work until 12+, and send myself to bed.

Weekend will be spent with friends and families. Time for myself? Hmmm..maybe once in a month? But i am happy with my life now hehe-i am not complaining :D. I almost achieve what i need to achieve before i finally turn 30 ha ha. 30 means i will have more responsibility and should focus on building my life rather than building my career, so i need to work extra hard in my 20s so that i can prepare myself for my 30s..hahah thats sound so pelik. whatever. 😀

well i guess the post have to end now – if not my work wont end before the end of the day today,so The End :D..

Happy Sunday everyone!

PHP : Deprecated: mysql_escape_string()

The website that i currently working on now in a final stage where it need to be uploaded and setup at the client’s server.

And i actually just waste my 30 minute trying to figure out what’s went wrong with all my codes after I push the script to production server.

I am using mysql_escape_string() in most of my pages and now i get this error :

How to solve? Simple haha:

mysql_escape_string is not depreciated from 5.3 but, for 4.3.0 and above. So any One using PHP version above/or 4.3.0 should use mysql_real_escape_string

So thats it 🙂

Groupon KK Deal – Facial @ KKTimesquare

Me and my friends had this Groupon addict since early this year. We bought and bought deal after deal even sometimes we didn’t use it bad..bad!
I had purchased quite a few deal myself and some of it are for  facial-to date, i already purchase 4 facial deals from Groupon.

I went to this Skin Beauty Cottage at KK Timesquare (The merchant: Skin Beauty Cottage
Lot 69-1, 1st Floor, Block L, KK Time Square , 88100, Kota Kinabalu,Sabah) yesterday with my friend to redeem our coupon. The deal is RM50 for two person worth RM256.

The premise is at first floor, once we press the bell, the staff let us in and we automatically went to the counter to check our appointment. Once she (the staff) confirm my appointment (with just nodding and say ok) she look at us and said : toilet? In which i answer: Pardon? Again she said : Toilet?..My friend look at her and said yes i need to go to the toilet. Still puzzled, i look at the other staffs and ask : Why would she ask about toilet all in sudden, without saying other words? All i get from the staff is blank stare and she continue doing her work.
I was actually expecting her to enlighten me about the package that we are going to take.But to my disappointment  she didn’t.
And i ask her : So, which one is the package for the Groupon deal? She give me a frame with a list of package, and some add on, and point to the RM99 package. Which is so not true when they should show me RM256 worth package as what they promote in Groupon. Well was already there, so i decide to just give it a try.
Me and my friend went to separate room. The room is quite small but not bad, for small beauty centre.
The facial is overall very ‘stingy’ where the staff only apply a very tiny amount of product to do the facial. But  luckily she did the blackhead removing process. there were no machine used during the whole process, and no  explanation at all. I was expecting that she will tell me what is the process and what it does to my face everytime she apply any product to my face. But No.
It took 1.5 hours yes, but i felt more like going there to sleep rather than getting facial. The way they handle customer is like they just open the beauty centre yesterday. 
My recommendation : I won’t go there anymore for a facial, not worth it. They giving RM256 package with that kind of service, no. Well maybe they didn’t understand, when the deal says : WORTH RM256, mean you should give the RM256 service,  whatever price the customer had paid. It is a trial for the customer and the service provide should take the opportunity to impress as much as they can.
More to come on my Groupon – Fail 😀

I know Him so well

Nothing is so good it lasts eternally,
Perfect situations must go wrong,
But this has never yet prevented me,
Wanting far too much,
For far too long,

Looking back,
I could have played it differently,
Won a few more moments,
Who can tell,
But it took time to understand the man,
Now at least I know
I know him well

Wasn’t it good?
(Oh so good)
Wasn’t he fine?
(Oh so fine)
Isn’t it madness,
He can’t be mine?
But in the end
He needs a little bit
More than me,
More security,
He needs his fantasy and freedom,
I know him so well

No-one in your life is with you constantly,
No-one is completely on your side,
And though I’d move my world to be with him,
Still the gap between us is too wide,

Looking back,
(Looking back)
I could have played it differently,
(I could have played it some other way),
Learned about the man,
Before I fell
(I was just a little careless)
But I was ever so much younger then,
(Maybe, so much younger then)
Now at least I know
I know him well


About Sabah

I love reading books about Sabah. I have a few books and still looking for more books. Well, now that i am ‘wiser’ hehe, i choose not to trust all the facts in Buku Sejarah back to school days. I rather look for the original source and read it myself. Recently i read this blog of Ms Tina Kissil about Sabah, and she summarizes it in a way i could easily understand.

Check out her blog at : http://teawith-tina.blogspot.com/2012/06/letter-to-my-anak-buah.html Really interesting!

My life as system developer

I am a System Developer or SD (no i‘m not a house developer 🙂 ), i develop a system
 for people. My main task is to think- to make people’s life easier. My mind exercise more than my 
physical body. 


I studied Computer Science majoring in Multimedia, but I work in the 
Software Engineering field ever since.
Why, i‘m not sure 🙂 . Maybe because I am actually doing better in SE rather than Multimedia?
Or maybe because that’s what God spare for me? What ever it is, i actually love my job,
even though it’s killing me sometimes..


Architect, you plan for the whole building from the building plan to the material.
That’s what System Developer does. A programmer will refer to the plan or in IT 
term Functional Flow to develop a system. But SD is a programmer as well, because 
it’s Malaysia. You do everything.


A programmer doesn’t need to go out and talk with the client or the Boss. But as SD you will
be in the middle. The Client will ask for a Porche with Kancil budget. The Boss will agree 
to deliver Porche to please the Client, and will ask System Developer to use Kancil
material.


So when the Client test drive the Porche, it cannot go as fast as real Porche so 
System Developer has to blame the road condition. The Client will get mad and 
ask for a tecnical report. SD will have to deliver thousand pages of
technical report as detail as possible, while they still need to do the programming
while they still need to attend lots of technical meetings , progress meetings or 
budget meetings.


When most will spent their weekend off job, SD will be thankful to have 2 days more before
weekend end to finish the task.


But when all project done, SD will feel soooooooo good! And that’s the greatest felling of all!
