Gaming PC/Laptop should have at least 8GB RAM

Robert's Google+


Any laptop you bought on 2018 should have at least 8GB system RAM for minimal pleasure on gaming.



Try a new laptopr or PC ? higher chance you will tumble on windows 10 that required minimum 4GB RAM to run. The truth is windows 10 required a constant roughly 2.5GB RAM to maintain. For any user activities, you are just left with estimated 1.5GB RAM.



1.5GB RAM may seem to be enough for casual web browsing and watching Youtube. In some point, you will need to run its on PC games. This is where everything turn sour and ugly questioning "why newly bought laptop/PC on 2018 cannot handle a 5 years old game bought from Steam ?" 



Experts would argue you are still able to run the game. However, the game constantly taking 95% of the RAM. There was no secret that a game still run on 4GB RAM but with less FPS and happen to have events of stutter.



4GB RAM Laptop/PC are still widely available in today market. In fact, you just opt for higher than 8GB RAM and surely with medium to high tiered graphic card for better gaming experience. To shed a little information about GPU, any GPU running on DDR5 and 4GB VRAM are considered good for gaming. Should you accept 4GB system RAM with Nvidia 10xx series ? of course big no.


 

Fortnite Battle Royale taking 3GB RAM
There was no better things to do than playing Fortnite right now.



In order to further turn you off buying a 4GB RAM PC/Laptop, one of the best game genre in 2010 - 2020 Fortnite battle royale by Epic games is occupying more than 3GB RAM. 



As if you had 4GB RAM, it is literally unplayable for lacking 1.5GB RAM. To be frank, you could still play the game with image stuttering and imagine engaging in a large scale combat, instead of playing a game it like you are watching a frame to frame images.



PUBG mobile taking 1.5GB RAM
PUBG mobile by Tencent



Emulator and PUBG mobile is taking up 1.5GB RAM. With 4GB system RAM, you will get a constant 90% RAM occupied. It is not harsh to say you could never open a single page of google chrome or even try to do a desktop refresh. Some gamer like to open voice-chat software during game and you may try to open some of your favorite song ? Here is my suggestion, buy a PC/laptop setup that come with 8GB RAM or more. 



In the coming years, gaming enthusiats are slowly adopting live streaming their favorite game. 8GB RAM may not be enough any longer. You may need 16GB RAM in the year 2025 ?

This Starbucks I bought during half-price promotion. It charge me RM0.53 for GST




Corn product Malaysia
I like Corn

I bet processed Chili actually need to be charged with 6% GST. It is processed and likely to be included in GST list.



Huawei G8
I like Huawei. But, each year new phone come out my love gradually fade

In this few years, there were influx of China made technology products in Malaysia especially smartphone brands from Huawei and Oppo. Your newly owned smartphone is proudly brought to you GST charge totalled RM84.xx. 




Asus
I like Asus



8. Asus Laptop



First of all, Asus is made from Taiwan. Although most of them are mandarin speaking at there.(Namewee used to study there) but, Asus is a product by import. I am not rich enough to buy a gaming laptop and this laptop i bought could not actually play PUBG. it may run Dota 2 or Crysis 2. The point is, I got charged MYR 93.00. 



Good example from Huawei smartphone and Asus laptop. As long as the price point is higher, your 6%GST charge is gonna be higher.




SESB receipt with GST 6%
SESB



9. Power Plant


Most people do not really write anything about power plant because they are afraid SESB going to unplug electricity at our home. I do not know about West Malaysia, i guess they have the same type of paper receipt right ? There were not much differences between us. West Malaysia may use red-colored banner with TNB logo.



Have you seen your home electricity bill lately because your whole life revolves around it. The first 300kwh is not qualify for GST collection. the next kwh is going to be included into GST list. Anyone opens Air-condition at night are guaranteed over 300kwh. My electricity bill GST is RM6.00

11. Postpaid Plan



A bit sceptical whether Maxis and Celcom Postpaid have any 6% GST. The newly introduced Digi Postpaid 100 infinite seem to have 6% GST. Rumor you actually can claim it back.

Corn and Cassava flour are not wheat or rice flour. It could be in GST list.

Receipt 4GB RAM from Lazada
I love Lazada



15. Internet Shopping



Do not buy if you cannot afford just stick to 4GB system RAM laptop. When I do buy it, it said I got taxed in shipping cost as well as the product. Shipping cost plus GST is quite expensive ?


GST RM5.30 for my shipping and my 4GB RAM stick GST is RM9.40. I thought buying online was cheaper but, RM14.70 is just GST. I cant imagine as if thousands of peoples purchase stuff online.






16. Lot 10 eateries



Charcoal he fen/ho fun/kuey teow stall is really pack with office employees during peak hour.



I like to fly



17. Air Plane Ticket



Hmm ~ Malay people and MAS share price ? (thunder roar) It pretty much acceptable. Walking around the airport, using the airport facilities and the fund can be used for future development a better airport in Malaysia. Above, I am guessing the RM 11.00 is airport tax with 6% GST, RM 0.66. Besides, there was a base fare price RM 141.00 and the GST is RM8.46.






Either GST or SST
Nor RM10.60 or RM10.00
Nor Today or June 1,2018
40billion or 20billion
Guess what ?

Yili Greek Yogurt is selling at RM7 in Malaysia

Robert's Google+


Highly influential China's variety programme "Running Man"  endorsed Yili Group's Greek Yogurt


Yili greek yogurt




Fans of the show have tried to purchase or to extend, imports the drink from China in order to displays their support and love on the variety show and celebrities. Although generally speaking most of Malaysian are not fond of yogurt drinks, due to celebrity endorsement from Li Chen and Angelababy, the market may endures large demand on Yili's greek yogurt beverage in a short time.



During the show, celebrity would satisfy thirst with Ambrosial AnMuXi Greek Yogurt Drink indirectly promoting the yogurt drink. Due to the large demand, the drink can be bought in some local stores in Malaysia for instance, Familymart. The price is at between RM7 - RM20.



The imported drink may have a different type of expiry date to warns the consumer. This yogurt drink most likely shows the manufacture date and encourages consumer drinks it within the duration of 6 months. Besides, do not be discouraged when you found out the beverage date is expired for a month, you may have wrongly noticed it was actually manufacture date for an imported products.



Yogurt or directly translated from Mandarin as "sour milk" is no stranger to us as we have known Yakult from Japan. Both products have a similarity in taste. However, a humble opinion, Yili's greek yogurt is much more sticky andcreamy.

  



MAS is RM20+ cheaper than Airasia domestic flight

Robert's Google+



Sabah flight with Malaysia Airline is much more cheaper than Airasia. 




Airasia can never boast tagline "Now everyone can fly" the same way for local community in Sabah. MAS may have implemented price reform that could easily put Airasia in a disadvantage position. The changes in ticket price is noticeable as local community in Sabah are never fond of taking land transportation for instance, Kota Kinabalu to Sandakan or Kota Kinabalu to Tawau. They relied heavily on air transportation due to its travel speed and cost efficient.



Sabah may not be as congested as in the west Malaysia, However, the road to various cities in Sabah were not ideal. As more people noticing Sabah potential, the number of population has grew rapidly and will be in upward trend in the near future. No one wanted to spend 9 hours in a bus as alternatively air transport from Tawau to Kota Kinabalu is merely less than 1 hour.



The obvious popularity swing from Airasia to Malaysia Airline in Sabah has lead to one of the local member of parliament at Kinabatangan voicing dissatisfaction felt by his people in governed area. In fact, the people started to realized it is a good sign that fierce competition among air transport companies is good for the economy.


2nd Lunar new Year and Saturday 17 / February / 2018. Ticket price from Tawau to Kota Kinabalu. ticket price RM174 not inclusive of tax and processing fee



It is safe to say most of local community Sabah chose Airasia as their preferred airline company flying nationwide. The price is economical friendly as opposed to Malaysia Airline. Just speaking from experience, Airasia ticket used to be as cheap as lower than RM100 for single trip from Kota Kinabalu to Tawau or Sandakan which as cheap as an express bus that took 5 hours and more to reach. Whereas, Malaysia Airline ticket could cost up to RM180 above with added baggage.



It is even cheaper as if purchase it at early date, Airasia ticket could go as low as RM70 or even below RM50 in a promotional rate.




The price is RM 161.12 for a single trip from Tawau to Kota kinabalu. 


One may argue that consumer is purchasng a flight ticket a day before the flight date. Airasia may get you a cheaper price at early date, there was no guarantee that you will have average ticket price at a really late flight date. 



To be frank, the lowest airasia ticket we could find comparison is RM174.00 and that is not the final price no inclusive tax and processing fee. To blindly guess the price could be up to RM190.00++ for airasia ticket puchasing at a very late date and in a festive season.



Malaysia Airlines ticket price at RM161.12 is inclusive of tax, luggage, preferential seat allocation and may have a free meal for flight duration over 60 minutes. 



In a suggestion for a competitive airline companies in Malaysia, the Airasia is a role model and subsequently leads Malaysia Airline lost its status as monopoly in respective business and push for a price reform. Eventually not in exaggerate way to say "Now Everyone can fly".


Buy Things with Lazada Mobile in Malaysia

Robert's Google+



There were so many shopping malls, some love shopping remotely





Lazada Package



China has Alibaba, Malaysia has Lazada for online shopping experience. The growing of e-commerce may have boosted national courier Pos Laju to a new height. Imagine of thousands of large and small parcels needed to be delivered to homes were not an easy task to be fulfulled. Lazada may considered the first and highly advertised successful e-commerce company in Malaysia.



The success of Lazada brought huge investment from Alibaba. When Lazada first opened its e-commerce store, there were very little china made products and there were no big tab sign written "taobao". Clicking into the tab would result to a new page full of taobao owned products. Taobao vaguely means in mandarin "roll for treasure".



E-commerce may have high influence on future cashless society. If there were no major failures in comsumer-to-machine transactions or historical flawed in bank's cards, the future generation will no longer accepting cash as a norm to purchase anything. Although younger generation prefer goes cashless, they needed to know machine sometimes overloaded, overheated or has to undergo long maintenance time just like the bank's ATM.




JBL T450 headphone
Headphone gadgets are always has low lifespan. 


I have used many headphones throughout my life. Neither were Samsung, Huawei and Remax lasted a lifetime. Not to mention countless of counterfeit headphone products. In 2018, before celebration of Lunar new year, I am really fond to get JBL headphones. However, the original imported JBL headphones were really expensive. It could easily cost anyone RM100 and above.



The good thing about Lazada is that, every consumer could leave bad or good feedbacks. Unlike traditional way of engaging a sales assistant for a review. Of course, some sales assistant would just simply give everything they are selling a good reviews. JBL products in Lazada has more than 100 reviews and most of them are positive.



Lazada Mobile
Lazada mobile



I have known Lazada mobile for a really long time but never get to use it. The simple app has almost all the features as comparison to visiting Lazada on a PC.



Lazada cash on delivery
Lazada has cash on delivery, easy return



You will be suprised how fast they deliver the products to your home. The fastest I have truly experienced was 3 days. To be honest, most people pay in advance rather than using "Cash on Delivery" option. This feature allows buyer pay on the meeting spot. Lazada could fulfill any orders nationwide as long as there were pos laju nearby or you could opt getting your products at the nearby courier company such as Gdex.





payment method in Lazada mobile
If you have debit or credit cards, you may just insert card's number




Choose your bank wisely and remember you must have online banking for FPX service. FPX has some really good preventative measures for example, phone notification, rhb bank website verification and phone code verification.



If you are wondering does Lazada accepting order from Sabah, the answer is yes. Some people are curious as online shopping  is for the city folks who does not want to drive all the way to shopping mall and cause traffic congestion or pay a hefty parking fee. If you are unsure or you are living in rural areas you may just write your phone number and nearest courier company as if the products has arrived they may give you a phone call.



Happy shopping and hope you will find this helpful to your problem.

Digi has extensive mobile Internet coverage throughout the nation.



Digi unlimited data RM100 speed test
Digi RM100 unlimited postpaid plan. Speed test done in Sabah



The battle of unlimited mobile Internet data is officially started. Thanks to Webe (unifi mobile), paving a new trend that followed by many local Internet mobile companies. Webe's reign on the term "unlimited data" is unrivalled for nearly six months from 2016 to march 2017. In an attempt to stay competitive, Digi continued effort revised its postpaid plans. 



Digi unlimited postpaid plans has a significant difference that would be no blockage on mobile tethering to other devices such as laptop and other device with Wi-Fi. Depending on your package, you may open tethering on your mobile phone to a laptop and watch 20GB of contents on your laptop. in an event of usage of 20GB is fulfilled, you may opt for a topup or surf the contents in your mobile phone without tethering to your laptop until the next billing month.



Besides, the new postpaid is constantly  run on 4G with 5mbps internet speed. However, Digi is prominent in dealing with user downloading stuff with the torrent software. Most of Digi users have experienced huge speed throttle while downloading any torrent files.







Digi has solved the issue of Internet coverage in many rural parts of Malaysia. In recent years, there have been lots of projects involving communication towers. In fact, those tower seem to be stabilizing LTE/4G Internet connection.



In the near future, we may observe another promotions battle among local mobile Internet providers in term of mobile internet speed. Since we have unlimited data now, consumer may suggest unlimited data and 20mbps instead of 5mbps.
