Comparison Electricity prices per kWh on other Asean countries. Malaysia electricity tariff 2014 against others




I do not know whether average Malaysian household felt the new electricity tariff pricing system effective January 2014. For myself, I kind of curious and felt a little bit. So, I set myself on a simple research that can be done by normal secondary students.

I just want an answer for my question in my mind. You and I know it not difficult we just have to do some search on Mr Google. Although Google is a powerful search engine, it did not mean once you type your questions you would like to find out, Mr Google may or may not give you a satisfy answers within few seconds. I have spend some time on this small research !

Based on the research, accuracy of the information is quite high. However, as the electricity price per kWh vary every year in various countries, it is very hard to find out respective country exact electricity price per kWh. There might be a prices difference mistakes for some countries but all the information are based on within 3 years. Despite that, the price gap is not really wide as if some country implemented new electricity tariff system.

It is up to you to fully or partially believe it or not on the chart above. I am quite convinced that. Take a look at Malaysia vs Singapore electricity price per kWh, you will see that Singapore 1 kWh is so high currently stood at RM 0.63. I believe there is tier system in Singapore electricity tariff.


I don think Singapore has this electricity tariff tier system. In Malaysia, First 200 kWh, it charge on RM 0.21 or USD $0.09 


Brunei new tariff on 2011 is incredibly cheap. First 500 kWh is RM0.3 , which they pay for RM 15.00. 501 - 1500 kWh charge on RM 0.30 .  On 1501 kWh and above , they are charging RM0. 45 . I think they are still using 2011 electricity pricing tariff.




Which countries has the lowest consumer electricity per kWh ?

Brunei definitely stood the top at the ranking. RM0.03 for first 500kWh .

For orderly manner it would be Brunei, Thailand, Indonesia, China, South Korea, Taiwan, Philippine, Malaysia, Japan, Singapore. 


Which countries has the highest consumer electricity per kWh ?

Reverse the order it would be Singapore, Japan, Malaysia, Philippine, Taiwan, South Korea, China, Indonesia, Thailand, Brunei.





All of the information provided here is just my personal opinion. I am just normal Malaysian just like other Malaysian in the street. Be moderate !

What are Football Zombie Syndrome or Sickness ? What are they trying to tell us ?







Luckily, I was selected as one of the winner in this contest. Please proceed to this entries Unitedmy one of the winner of Football Zombie Defender contest


It is not hard to guess what it is. It is none other than the coming FIFA 2014 at Brazil ! Without this grand event that unite us from any background there would not be a Football Zombie. Do you think it curable ?

How to cure this football zombie will be turn off the television. It certainly not easy to do it it is not as simple as that. What if your workplace colleagues start to talk about the FIFA players and scores ? You do not want to be sidelined and pretend you know it but in fact you were not watching the FIFA matches.

Turn on the television and start watch it till the end that would be the solution. However, most of the FIFA matches LIVE on midnight time because at Brazil there would be timeline difference if we watch it at Malaysia. Especially FIFA Brazil 2014 semi final and final matches who were going to miss the chance to see once in 4 years football event ?

That really ridiculous my colleagues expected me to see the match so that all of us can connect to the same topic but my workplace employer will be furious to know if employee stay up all night just to watch the matches. Who were going to do all the paperwork with energetic spirit ? I think most of the boss out there totally can understand our feeling to cheer favorite team in critical moment. My favorite team needed me to cheer them in front of television like consistently throughout the match.

Despite that and back to Football Zombie. This Football Zombie campaign shows you guy a series of video clips and a game to play. It called "Football Zombie Defender" . This game comes with attractive prizes to be won by lucky users.

In less than 2 months, April and May we have seen Xiao Mi, Huawei, Oppo's store at Malaysia shopping mall. Spotlight not only focusing on electronic business, there are China pandas costing RM 60 million to be shipped to Malaysia as a sign of friendship

Despite China's three popular smartphone companies introducing their unbelievable low cost high quality smartphones, Nokia Malaysia confidently responded to this challenge by introducing two highly anticipated low-cost smartphones with capabilities to put more than 1 SIM card.

Watch Edge of Tomorrow Movie in Malaysia May 29

Robert's Google+

Tom Cruise new movie in 2014. Action-packed, fire, explosion, future, mechanical body armour, alien invasion




Directed by : Doug Liman
Starring : Bill Paxton, Emily Blunt, Tom Cruise
Running time : Approximately 2 hours
Distributor/Producer : Warner Bros




4 largest movies will be released in Malaysia in May 2014. Amazing spiderman 2, Godzilla, X-men Days of future past and Edge of Tomorrow. 

As the title suggested, Edge of Tomorrow movie will be on Malaysia cinema silver screen on May 29, 2014. Don get confused by international releasing date on June 2014 at United States. We might have a chance to watch it a day earlier than May 29, 2014 (Thursday) due to early sneak show on May 28, 2014 (Wednesday)

Like every new movies by Hollywood, you will get a chance to watch it on 2D, 2D or IMAX 3D screen. In the trailer, it seem like Tom Cruise is wearing a mechanical body armor fighting off alien race that had violence intention on the Earth. His most epic quote " It seem like I am in this fight for eternity". It further means that the fighting with Alien race is difficult.

Tom Cruise seem to have time travelling ability to the past to set the human race future better. For example, liken to the movie "X-men Days of the future past", wolverine back to the past to set thing right thus set mutant future better.

However, Edge of Tomorrow Tom Cruise seem to travelling forth and back for many times that He could hardly remember how many times was it. Every time He face the pain of being dead and the pain of watching his world torn apart by violence intended forces.

Will Tom Cruise in the movie Edge of Tomorrow eventually win the formidable alien race. Will Tom cruise a secret weapon his determination and consistent will set a better human future ?

We have seen Tom Cruise have been involved himself for numerous movies that set the time on the future. I guess he really like acting in a futuristic and science fiction movies.

  

Missing Malaysia Airline MH370 Movie

The Vanishing Act inspired by the real incident of Malaysian flight MH370 



United State's Hollywood movies industry have been occasionally related and association with grand unfortunate event such as 9/11. Some even made a statement that "if they can make Avatar, they can make 9/11". It really self explanatory whether which is is true of false. I mean we do not know who started and behind every war happened right ? perhaps we will know the truth after the war is over. Or maybe someone just put a name accusing him start the war.

The Vanishing Act is a movie but not a documentary. A movies always dramatic, fancy and overwhelmed story telling. Movies are not entirely true and it is based on one side opinion how and what to show in your screen. Will we condemn such an act to make a movie inspired by the real incident ??

To start telling everyone "The Vanishing Act" movie is inspired by MH370 is fairy unfair. Because all we know about the real event MH370 they lost contact with airport controller tower. So in this movie, there will be a plot about the airplane lost contact with airport controller tower ?

How much similarities of true event MH370 will be put inside this movie ? In fact, this movie is marketed largely using the real event missing Malaysian Airliner MH370 title. This movie is still in the state of getting new investors. Meanwhile, a trailer of the movie have been made available to the public.

Do you really have to watch this movie ? I strongly encourage this is just a movie made out of investor money. It may or may not be similar to the true event. For the marketing part, they were using MH370 true event that is entirely legal in some country.

Will this movie be produced and aired to the public if they have enough investor ? It is likely will happen because in the past we have seen much more exaggerated movies that so called inspired by 9/11 and so forth.

This movies unveiled by Bollywood director Rupesh Paul. The trailer has cost him $3.5 million or (RM11million).

Malaysian raged on twitter for One Direction concert

Robert's Google+


One Direction is unlikely held concert in Malaysia 2014 in conjunction with Visit Malaysia 2014


Twitter trends Malaysia 19 May 2014




They are online protesting that why One Direction boy band is not going to perform a concert at Malaysia. Some even left comments or complain to the management of One Direction at this opportunist time

Hashtag #MalaysianeedsOTRAT have been trending on May 19, 2014. Outraging due to the decision by One Direction mangement that concert will be held at other parts of Asian countries excluding Malaysia.

This hashtag sparked nationwide as well as worldwide attention demanding a Malaysia tour by One Direction. I guess Malaysian love express their concern and opinion on Twitter. I mean in order to be a hashtag by worldwide is incredible . That must be a lot of people tweeting this hashtag that day





Will Malaysian fans get a chance to meet up One Direction in Malaysia by a concert ? Will they hear the our  outcry ? This hashtag is a proof to many we are indeed wanted them to come here. It could be possible due to this year is "Visit Malaysia year 2014 " anything could happen.

Don be too much unrealistic because One Direction concert is fully booked this year. In fact, their asian tour is scheduled next year 2015. How I know ?? because One Direction manegement made an announcement Asian concert is likely happening on next year !!

Too early get excited ? They are touring Singapore and Thailand. Singapore on March and Thailand will be on May 2015.

I believe Malaysian fans is in agonizing because some of them claimed they have been waiting One Direction concert in Malaysia for more than 2 years. Whne they heard the news One Director is going to open concert in Asian countries. They must be so happy ! That is a sign of hope they have been waiting for

I would suggest you take a ride to Singapore if you really want to hear they singing and meet them in close proximity in this coming March 2015. 10 months ahead from now !

Give a 2NE1 a break would not you Malaysian fan ? They have been to Malaysia last year and also this year ! . If it is not because Malaysian demand on Kpop concert, they would not come for second time but it is a very happy to see them back.


It is a world tour for them with title "All or nothing". Malaysian just cant get enough for Kpop song and dancing. This will be another concert that will make you lose oxygen and suffocate collapse at the floor  held on May 2014. Month of May and June are usually holiday season !!


I am not being serious about that . The truth is that in conjunction of Visit Malaysia 2014 there are really a lot of happening. After 2NE1 concert in may, we will see Taylor Swift in June performing "Red Tour" ! I could not imagine that actually dream become true for many Malaysian fans.

What are the songs you like 2NE1 to sing in the concert ? There are so many good song such as "Don stop the music", "Go Away", "Love is ouch", "I am the Best", "I Don care", "Clap your hand".













New Maggi Big Ayam and Kari 2014

Robert's Google+


Maggi is introducing new package to Malaysian instant noodle fans . Much more bigger.


New and old maggi package 2014



Just how big is this Maggi big ?? It is 101 grams with 447 kcal or 1878 KJ. It is bigger than the normal Maggi package we have been consuming ! Just for your reminder that normal maggi package contained 78 grams with 348 kcal only


Temptation to buy Maggi big ayam and Maggi big kari is big because the ambassador of Maggi is renowned and well known actor Aaron Aziz. The way he is eating the Maggi instant noodle curry flavor is so delicious. I can smell it from my screen. I just don want watching him eating I want experience it too !

The truth is that the original Maggi kari and ayam flavors are not being changed. It is still the same old flavor however the package is slightly modified to looked like bigger more content.




New Maggi Big ayam RM 5.99 2014
RM 5.99 for 5 Maggi Big Ayam



I have noticed not only the package had changed, the price is increased to RM 5.99 in local store. I am wondering what are the price in supermarket because usually bigger store selling cheaper. Maggi is a big brand and their instant noodle is RM 1 expensive than other instant noodle brand.



New Maggi Big kari RM 5.99 2014



I have eaten numerous instant noodles from Maggi or other brands but the tasty one that can close close to compete with Maggi would be "Mamee" and "Mee sedaap". Mamee instant noodle newest rolled out Mamee Chef is super creative and tasty !  I want to stay at Maggi side since this is about Maggi !

Maggi is so popular in Malaysia sometimes we referred instant noodles as Maggi instead. That how powerful Maggi brand in Malaysia. One is not a Malaysian if you asked about "What are the top 3 instant noodles brand you have eaten"  his/her answers should have Maggi, if it does not he/she is not original Malaysian

Hey !! I got a suggestion since we have so many foreigner in malaysia, to test the original Malaysian, we ask them the question above !


When Aaron Aziz become Maggi ambassador, it made Maggi an instant noodle for gangsters because Aaron Aziz always starring and made appearance on gangsters movies ! Maggi is so gangster with Aaron Aziz ! You are not a true gangster if you had not eaten Maggi !  




Says Food Awards Malaysia 2014 Contest

Robert's Google+


Stand a chance to win cash prizes worth RM25,000 . Everyone know how to take picture of a tasty food has higher chance


Says food awards 2014



A very creative vote-and-upload platform where abundant tasty food photos are stored in here for you to vote or you can upload your own tasty food photos. Seek no where but here for photos that will make you hungry and drooling in midnight. Everyone is uploading their most tasty foods pictures into this platform with optional provided location for your ease to find where is the restaurant serving that meal. The best part is you could be selected as the winner of cash prizes worth RM25,000



Take a food photo and win ! that is so easy . I am developing a thought that there will be gender inequality on the winners because most of the male forgot to take their food photo. They usually finished up everything or half way eating to be reminded to take a photo with their foods.

Capturing foods using smartphone or camera is a developing trend. A trend focused on those who born 80s and 90s . I don see our parents is leading this trend although they encourage or started doing it nowadays. What is so memorable capturing food photo if you eat it everyday ? 

Maybe because some of us think that food is a precious piece of art. It could be right ! I mean our future children would want to flip back photos what did we eat right in last decade or last 20 years ! Wait, there is another good reason why people like to take food photo, because they want us to feel hungry, pitiful and jealous. It is not entirely true but part of it is right !


I have seen people editing those food photos just to make it more tastier and more starving. Looking at Mcdonald and KFC advertisements you will see a very good looking meal inside the photo but when you go to Mcdonald and buy them. It is not what you think the size, the amount and the texture. They mess up our brain system who are managing the food sector by a pretty food photo .


I guess we cant sue them because you often will see a small print written "It is just for advertisement, it is for illustration purpose". Commercial companies always using the advantage of advertisement to attract more business. Why ? Because to some extend it is actually legal to do that. Commercial company always can refute that it is how the public to see the advertisement.

Huge Sony fans in Malaysia will be thrilled to see this announcement. Malaysian have a good trust on Sony products especially youngsters. I don seem to understand is that because it is waterproof or scratch, dust proof ? or whether it sony camera or sony audio speakers?

In recent global news about Xperia mobile, Sony is doing great in mobile business selling almost 39 million Sony smartphones worldwide in 2013. Their annual report released to the public for whole 2013. Comparison 2012 and 2013 Sony annual mobile sales report, an increasing of 5 million sales recorded as 2012 Sony mobile sales was 34 million.

Sony is very optimistic about their mobile sales in 2014. They expected an increasing of 11 million mobile sales this year compared to last year 39 million. Are they expecting too much ? No, they are certainly not because 50 million is not hardly an unreachable sales expectation. Huawei, Samsung and apple each have sales expectation exceeded 50 million.

Electricity Bill in 2010 and 2012 . Source : Seniorsaloud, oongui.

Do you ever ask yourself what was the past electricity tariff ? Have you noticed news about sole power company in Malaysia Tenaga Nasional Berhad or any state power company, is asking people to pay more on your every month electricity bill ??


Surely most of you guy who are news goer must have noticed the electricity tariff increase news. Have you really carefully calculated ?


Recent news from our national power company that in 2014, we will need to bear another increasing in electricity bill. Yeah ! in the name of subsidy rationalization they have rendered the old tariff chart. Check back the news there is a new tariff chart effective in January 2014.


Take a look at the chart above, I have gathered 2008 and 2012 random electricity tariff. Thank to Seniorsaloud and oongui blog ( I took their pic without alerting them) . Let us do some research !


Shortly after the Malaysian 2008 election ended peacefully, our old electricity chart which 500 kWh around 0.28/kWh was RM 140.00 , for the next 100 kWh around 0.37/kWh and become RM37.00


Summary 2008 electricity chart for 600kWh 

500kWh * 0.286/kWh = RM 143.00
100kWh * 0.37/kWh   = RM 37.00

Total : RM 180


Summary 2011 electricity chart for 600kWh 

First 200kWh (1-200 kWh) per month : (200*21.80)/100 = RM 43.60
Next 100kWh (201 - 300 kWh) per month : (100*33.40)/100 = RM 33.40
Next 100kWh (301 - 400 kWh ) per month : (100*40.0)/100 = RM 40.00
Next 100kWh (401 - 500 kWh ) per month : (100*40.2)/100 = RM 40.20
Next 100kWh (501 - 600kWh ) per month : (100*41.6)/100 = RM 41.60

Total : RM 198.80



Summary 2014 Tariff chart for 600 kWh

First 200kWh (1-200 kWh) per month : (200*21.80)/100 = RM 43.60
Next 100kWh (201 - 300 kWh) per month : (100*33.40)/100 = RM 33.40
Next 300kWh (301 - 600 kWh)  per month : (100*51.60)/100 = RM 154.80

Total : RM 231.80




Question & Answers 



How much increase between 2008 and 2011 in 600 kWh ?

RM198.80 - RM180 = RM 18.8 . Approximately 10% increase between 2008 and 2011.


How much increase between 2011 and 2014 in 600 kWh ?

RM 231.80 - RM 198.80 = RM 33.0. Approximately 16% increase between 2008 and 2011.


How much increase 2008 till 2014 ?

26 % increase for 600 kWh within 6 years.






National power company done good work in implementing this chart. The first 200kWh tariff have the lowest charge in Malaysian history compared to 2010 electricity tariff rate at RM 0.28 . At RM 0.218 per kWh, household in Malaysia could save up a lot .

 If your electricity never go up to 90kWh per month you will be entitled governemnt subsidy of RM 20.00. That means household who use lesser than 90kWh no need to pay anything at all !


 In my research, household with air-conditioner and heavy power consumption machinery, their bill is no escaping from 400 kWh - 700 kWh.

World First ever Curved UHD TV launched by Samsung globally. Over 1000 Clear Motion Rate 




UHD TV Samsung Malaysia




If you just bought your TV last 2 years your TV probably stand at 100 refresh rate which is above average rating among LED TV. Unless you bought a plasma TV which the refresh rate could be from 200-600. Refresh rate is one of the main determinant in purchase a right TV


Normal TV shows and news are using on 50/60 refresh rate. Now why would anyone in this world need something bigger than that ? There are plasma TV even goes up to 600 refresh rate not to mention UHD TV which is over 1000 refresh rate. 


It does not matter because consumers are fascinated by promise of better picture quality. In fact, Ultra High Definition TV are not the same of HDTV. It is a successor of High-Definition TV. UHD TV have a humble beginning in 2012 that only less than 100,000 UHD TVs shipped globally. Guess who ordered the most ? 


It would be China consumers. Accounted 80% of the buyers are came from within China. It was not cheap at US$5000. Over the years, UHD TVs gained worldwide attention shipment grow from merely 100,000 to millions. Researchers forecast that end of the decade which is 6 years from now, 40 per cent of all flat panel TV shipments will be UHD variety. It is so expensive who are going to buy ??


They have all figured out the price tag that is why they will introduce entry-level UHD TVs which will cost consumers merely US$1500 or lesser. Indeed, the world technological advancement is growing tremendously and rapidly.

In simple, what are UHD TV ? It is just another term for 4K, 3840 x 2160 p TV. Movie industry and gaming industry is trying harder to provide game in 4K resolution TV. There are few TV shows supporting 4K resolution that will be "Breaking Bad".







UHD TV Samsung Malaysia

UHD TV are mostly a smart and LED TVs. The cost of owning one is still relatively high for this next generation TVs. Most of the TVs review are still ranked UHD TV has a rip off price tag.

10 Best LED TV in Malaysia under RM2000

Robert's Google+


What are the most important factors when choosing a right a LED TV?


There are several factors to ponder and it is easily to guess by everyone that would be screen size. Most people are willing to spend more to get bigger LED TV inch. I would like to suggest to buy at a 42 inch LED TV and above although the store were selling 32 inch LED TV onward.

The biggest problem facing by consumers purchasing a right LED TV would be dissatisfaction on the screen size of the TV they bought. Most of the physical stores do not allow consumers return back goods sold. The best solution would be avoid purchasing 32 inch LED TV.

However, the existence of LED TV in 32" screen size are significant. Most of the stores are selling them in rock-bottom price somewhat below RM1,000. They are few reasons consumer would pick this rather than bigger screen. Some reasons would be it fit right in the space of furniture, it cost-saving, less electricity consumption. Besides, rich folk wanted to have their kids room and guest room to have a LED TV while they already have a 60" LED TV at the living room.

It varies how consumer perceived on purchasing right LED TVs. Rest assured that most people would argue TV screne size is rather small or big the best solution would be 42 inch LED TV. Research showed that more and more consumers picking up 42 inch LED TV than other screen size LED TV.

It is best to buy between 40" screen size to 50" screen size. The price tag would be varies between RM1,300 - RM2,000. Some of the important factors are wattage, resolution, hertz

Generally, in my own opinion and research, there are categories of TV. It will be like this LCD > Plasma/Curved  > LED > OLED . LED is leaning towards nature friendly and electricity reduced. LED are highly regard as the best of the best in any categories. However, Plasma, Curved and LCD potentially emitting more color, brighter, clear cut image than LED. If you like perfect image and color go for Plasma/Curved/LCD. If you are more on saving electricity bill, nature friendly and better longevity go for LED type TV.


Do note that most of the TV below are not smart TV. The last 2 are Smart TV.
