IT proficiency is essential nowadays,especially to "busy" man like me. Let's me share some services provided by google (note: I didn't ge pay from google, just my sincerely appreciation to them)..haha

Google Chrome--fast and simple web browser, use it to search scientific literatures. You can read the link below for a review.

Google Map--it's helps during my tour in April

Google Map--if not clear with the direction in map,street view is available (only in UK, I think)。If you wish to know how glasgow uni looks like, feel free to key in the following words:-

depart: kelvin way

arrive: glasgow uni

Google Library--have some collections, eventhough don't have full access, but still helpful.

youtube--we know youtube well :-)

iGOOLE--integrate all info in firefox web browser-eg. weather forecast, mails, etc

google video--upload all video clips to the web, and a software is provided, so can work in background

GMAIL--I redirect all blogs' comments to here, therefore I will not miss out any comments left to me, enhance communication with readers

this is not a GOOGLE servce,it is WIN LIVE MAIL, gather both hotmail & gmail in this email client, so i still can access existing mails eventhough i don't have internet access

google reader, use RSS to feed blogs, journals, news. so that I don't have to access every webite, as this is time consuming. currently, I have ~150 subscriptions, browse ~15000 articiles per month...haha

picasa album---upload all pics here. with the assistance of picasa software, i can do all the tasks in the background,

picasa software-- i can upload all pics to facebook, blog without access to the website/ a lot of time :-)

Last but not least, blogger (service that hosts blogs--> and

that's all for this time, hope to share more info with you guys in the future :-)

Perak State Assembly Chaos

Last month, I went to a top UK institution and gave a talk. In this talk, I shared my background info to the fellow audiences (>50 persons) as well (As illustrated in the slide below). I "was" proud to talk about pamelo, steamed chicken, bean sprout, etc. I believe they enjoyed my talk as well.

However, 2 weeks after my talk, the following chaotic situation happened in my beloved state. This was so embarassing, and I don't know how to answer/ explain to my dear audience next time, should there is any query about the following situation.
