Ink Grabber

Website Address: InkGrabber


InkGrabber has lower than average prices compared with the rest of its competitors. With extremely low minimums for free shipping (over $50) and cheap ink cartridge prices, you will find savings you can’t find elsewhere. For example, other companies may offer free shipping for higher priced orders over $75, but this company offers it for free for orders under a measly $50. Besides pricing, the ink they offer is one of the highest quality. Its no wonder ink is high quality since it is supplied by 123inkjets, one of the biggest ink manufacturers online. InkGrabber is a clone site of 123inkjets so they have the same product, except for lower prices.

I can't comment much about the Delivery time as I haven't try to order from them yet myself. Pricing for the cartridges are very competitive. You will also receive a ninety day risk free trial free and one year quality assurance guarantee. One year might not be enough for quality assurance guarantee. Thus, we had to provide a lower customer service score. On the contrary, is Inkjets is owned by the same company as 123inkjets and thus they provide the same level of quality ink and support.

think funeral. think marriage. think family.

i would like to thank zuhri for posting this, that now i am sharing it with my other friends...

for me, this commercial was a deep and poignant message of the beauty of imperfection and the unconditional love a family brings, it certainly captured me when i first saw it.

"funeral" was a tvc launched by the ministry of community development, youth and sports (MCYS) singapore which looks at relationships in a different light, through a woman at her husband's funeral. ultimately, the tvc celebrates the beautiful imperfections that make a relationship perfect.

monday blues? nah...

although i am here in kualè, thanks to this internet thingy i found out that someone painted a mural of yasmin ahmad by pasar seni' lrt.

check out this graffiti tribute to yasmin ahmad from artists jeng and kioue. its truly a master piece indeed! that i think it should be left there. seeing this really brighten up my monday—

Yasmin Ahmad (1958-2009)

kuE' note: mural can be seen from the pasar seni lrt station. somehow or rather i really wished that i could take a pic in front of this mural some day :)

al-fatihah to yasmin ahmad...


i am so deeply saddened by the news of yasmin ahmad's death. we heard about it in the tv3 night line earlier. she died about an hour ago.


yasmin was such an amazing woman who touched the lives of many; especially with her creativity that could be seen in many petronas' ads which would certainly be missed by viewers this year. thus i am so proud to say that my lil' bro was the sound man for her movie sepet (official website here) and most of her petronas' tvc.

her passing will not only leave a void in our lives, but in the hearts of all those who knew her. yasmin ahmad will always remain within our heart.

my sincere thoughts and prayers are with her and her family...

with deepest sympathy,

Scuba Diving

There is nothing comparative to the sport of scuba diving when it comes to relaxation and a feeling of solidarity. For an unknown amount of time man has always endeavored to discover nature in its most raw yet beautiful form and this gave birth to an all new sport of Scuba diving. It is imperative to note that at times this peaceful sport may take shape of a dreadful sport especially when man eater creatures like sharks and whales are always bound to attack.

The safety and security is a major concern while going for scuba diving and with so many websites and blogs imparting information to people, one such blog which stands above all is Scuba Diving offering a dedicated storehouse where one can go through a large number of published articles and get acquainted with the beautiful sport of scuba diving. It is always advised that one should have proper knowledge equipments deployed for scuba diving. A small briefing about all these equipments can be found on this blog and in addition to this if you are looking for some of the Best Travel destinations for divers then you can find the schedule and all the information on “7 underwater wonders of the world”.

  3.

Work Fom Home and Shop

Have you ever imagined what it would be like to earn more money in one month as you one did in a single year? Many small business owners involved in internet and network marketing are beginning to realize that this income level is possible. In fact, individuals who entered a business opportunity with less than $1,000, including those in DubLi, and had no formal marketing or business experience are being wealthy by using leveraged marketing techniques. The upside for most people lies in these techniques being easily learnable and adaptable for any business.

Recognize that by joining any online company that markets products or services through independent affiliate networks, there is a built leverage that the top earners exploit. This occurs by having the ability to make money from the efforts of those you refer to the business opportunity. Top earners in DubLi only achieve that level by coaching their downline network to duplicate productive business practices such as article writing, video marketing, and social media. This can be challenging since these online marketing strategies are new to many DubLi associates.

For more companies the affiliate has certain privileges upon joining such as the option of building a customer base and or affiliate base to generate sales. Going the affiliate route will pay higher dividends later on since their efforts will produce revenue for you. If you are still pondering the ideal way to build a business, consider the following hypothetical questions: “would you rather earn 100% from your own efforts or earn 1% from the efforts of a 100 people?” The latter scenario can make you rich, while the former can make you a living.


On 11 May, 2009 DubLi had install their Shopping Portal. This will allow shoppers to get automatic discounts on anything when they go to major retail sites. Amazon, Wal Mart, Target, Best Buy and 800 others are participating. Restaurant chains as well. The compensation plan is incredible, and too much to go into on a blog, but people in the US are already making tremendous incomes.

No matter the taxi driver is Chinese, Malay or Indian, PLEASE BE AWARE!

If you notice that there is a sound of spray of perfume or air purifier inside the taxi, PLEASE GET DOWN from the TAXI IMMEDIATELY!! It just happened to me just now. It was about 12.45 am . I got in a taxi driven by a Malay man. After a few minutes, I suddenly heard of a sound of spray and there was a smell like air purifier. I felt weird as to why the driver put two types of air purifiers in his taxi. The smell immediately reminded me about a forwarded email that I read.

I started to be aware of my surroundings. But the puff of the purifier kept appearing every few minutes. I was very worried and scared. Gradually, I sensed that my body started to feel weaker and weaker. The purifier kept puffing from just right behind me. As I really felt my whole body is weaken, I asked the driver to let me get down at the road side. But he kept trying to talk to me and ask me of why not dropping me off at my destination. I think he was trying to drag the time. To my horror, I felt both of my hands and legs got numbed and no energy, almost could not move. When I talked to the driver, I could not even speak properly, not to say to shout for help, 'cos I was really too weak... Immediately, at a traffic light I opened the door, jumped out and and ran to a passer-by for help. I really thank God for saving me. If not, I really can't imagine what would have happened to me.

I am traumatized by this incident. This is a TRUE case. Please do keep in mind! IT IS BETTER TO BE SAFE THAN SORRY! I feel the need to share with you guys, no matter you are men or women 'cos it is NOT a LIE, not a made-up story. It really happened. Do let your friends, family members and relatives know about this case. I believe you are just like me, who don't wish anybody to be the victim of this case.

'Please be aware when aboard to a taxi, especially the ladies.'

I received an email some months ago about a lady getting into a cab and felt uneasy and become faint when she smelt something like incense being burnt. She was smart enough to order the taxi to stop immediately and after throwing some money at the taxi man quickly get out of the taxi. She later got to know that if she had not stopped the taxi and gotten out, she would have fainted and raped by the taxi man (or a gang of rapists)!

After reading this, I thought maybe this was one of those emails that you would read and just forget about it, but I was wrong!

Few weeks ago, a visitor to our Chinese church who stayed in Puchong got into a taxi driven by an Indian man. When she sat into the taxi, there was a little burner and she could smell incense burning in the taxi. After awhile, she felt weak and unable to speak or shout. The Indian taxi man drove to a lonely road where there was hardly anyone and raped her. Before she was completely knocked out, she was told by the taxi guy that she was his number six victim. She was not only raped but also robbed! When she was conscious again, she quickly went to see a doctor. The sad thing is, the doctor knew she was raped but did not advise her what to do. The doctor just let her make the decision to make or not to make a police report. Since she does not know the rapist name and also the taxi number and in great fear after this trauma, she told the doctor that she would not dare to report to the police. The doctor said since she dare not make the report, he would just have to destroy the medical report! Because the rapist took her whole bag with her IC in it, he got her address and even has the guts to come straight to her house and try to be funny with her. Please remember not to get into a taxi that smells funny and if possible don't get into a taxi alone. If you have to do so, give a call or sms to your friends or relatives and let them know the taxi registration number that you are riding; and if possible, the name of the taxi man as well. DO NOT FORGET TO OPEN THE WINDOW! So that if anything happened you can find the plate number from your friend.


>>take note that i actually got this write-up from a twitter friend. he should have just placed a link from his tweets, not typed about more than 30 tweets (i guess)... blerk! anyhow since this thingy is kind of important, i as you know is kind enough to blog about this in proper way. so please let everyone know about this incident.

future of journalism...

As the old song says, “Video Killed The Radio Star,” and the Internet is killing journalists, or at least news organizations like newspapers and television news shows that no longer provide the same value to their customers.

Journalists are seeing their career paths die right before their eyes. There are even websites like Newspaper Death Watch and a Google Maps project that tracks job layoffs at newspapers across the United States.

Journalism is Dead

How Did Journalism Get Here?

Journalism started dying when people stopped looking to newspapers and television for news. It is as simple as that.

The Internet has slowly, but surely taken over the role of “see it here first” journalism. Even 24-hour news stations like CNN, MSNBC and FOX News do not have the ability to show news as it happens anywhere in the world. The Internet does.

There have been an increasing number of events chronicled on the Internet first. The Virginia Tech shootings, and the 2004 Indonesia Tsunami, to name a few were all shown online before television. Printed newspapers don’t even have a chance.
Journalism has Committed Murder-Suicide.

Major news organizations seem to follow, not lead when it comes to both breaking news and investigative journalism. So it is no wonder that both casual and serious news consumers are fleeing to online sources.

Advertisers Are No Longer Willing To Waste Money On A Mass Produced Product.

The technology revolution has allowed marketers to target advertising by gathering information about potential customers and then matching a product to the customer’s needs or desires. Newspapers and television can’t do that.

Journalism organizations have been slow to realize that the medium is not the message. Newspapers are not journalism. Newspapers are a product that brought news to people before they could find it any time they wanted it. Newspapers are a general mass-market product in a targeted niche market era. And television news is basically in the same condition as newspapers.

Is This The End of Journalism?

This is the end of journalism, as most people alive have known it. It is not the end of journalism.

Journalism is changing to meet both the demands of a changing world, but also to meet the changes in technology that are allowing anyone with a cell phone or a laptop to create journalism. Journalists used to need a massive organization behind them to produce news stories, photos or video. But inexpensive technology has changed that.

First person accounts within moments of an event are becoming invaluable pieces of journalism. Photos and videos, usually taken by cell phone, of events as they occur are only possible if the community participates in journalism. Professional journalists must change their thinking to see the value in this kind of journalism.

Journalism Is Not Dead, But Professional Journalists Face A Different Future.

Professional journalists are people who can write well, edit, shoot photos or video; they will always be needed. A few national and international news organizations will continue to exist in order to cover national and international governments and business.

Local and regional news organizations will need to scale back and cover their niche, local or regional news and sports. There are many openings and opportunities at the local level. Many smaller communities are not served or underserved by the mass media. Well-organized and lean local news organizations could do a great job covering these communities online and with a weekly or monthly print product provided free to the community.

The biggest problem is that too many of today’s journalists see working at a local newspaper as an unfulfilling career path. And too many journalists today see online news as a threat to “real journalism,” and have little or no ability to create online news content on their own.

The Internet is not killing journalism; it is just killing an old model of providing news to people who want information. The new model is as different as printing on a printing press was to hand copying books. Journalism is transforming into something more interactive, where the consumer is also a producer. That is not a bad thing, but it will cause a lot of stress and disruption as the older model fails and the newer model finds ways to succeed.
