For quick questions about Astra Zeneca vaccination and experience, it is highly recommended that you post it here to avoid clogging up DT. So far Hyatt has compiled a list of links, info and FAQ and many Nyets have been providing helpful responses too.
**(Disclaimer: All info contributed may or may not be accurate):**
So many questions...
MCO struck again. And I feel like as I'm growing older there are lesser opportunities for me to meet new people and make new friends. Would love to hear you guys' suggestions on communities on Facebook/Telegram/any other online medium based on a particular interest/hobbies I could join, so I can expand my network.
I like reading, movies, woodwork, board games. But all community suggestions are welcome because I do wanna pick up new interests and would love for everyone to benefit from the answers I get.
Personally I still think the best way is to connect through activities or mutual interest. Meeting random people is fun and all but you gotta deal with the awkwardness of having nothing to work on. Otherwise you can try your luck on dating apps like some of our friends here. Not sure how's that gonna work for you though, never a fan of it.
I was hoping for a suggestion of large groups ie Facebook communities catered for the interests I've listed (like a book club) so that we could have discussions and potentially meet up if all things go well. it could be a 100% online community and that's totally fine by me but if it were a sports based community I figure it would make sense to do activities together in the future and if it's safe.
Err yeah not interested in dating 😜 just want more sense of community hehe
Ahah! Well I don't use social media so I can't suggest you anything on that. However I read from posts online here most people use dating apps for short relationships or friendships as well. So maybe that can be your last option. 😂😂
Welp esok nak drive jaub tapi masih tak boleh tidur
wanted to say 'boleh lah' because of your username, but for driving safety reasons...'tak boleh lah'. Hope you manage to get an ample amount of rest before your long drive tomorrow. Switch your phone off and go to bed!
Tried already. But still cant. Now i wide awake. Might singgah rnr later to take a nap.
Not so widely reported news: online vendors selling pet "Blindbox" in China. Feel so bad for those animals trapped in those small boxes. The buyer and seller need be punished in the same way, locking them into coffin or something
[Szechuan Pet Blindbox](http://www.sixthtone.com/news/1007380/chinas-dark-new-blind-box-craze-live-pets)
The fuck is wrong with China.
This and that key chain turtle...I don’t know la what is wrong with them...
Can share? That sounds horrible tbh.
[Youtube link](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UU1XGXMELyw) I found, not sure whether it is same one as he/she mentioned
Oh wtf that's fucked up.
late night thought: i feel bad for the cinema nearby my house, they've been struggling since MCO and when they opened, i did go and watch like 4 movies (and Demon Slayer did sell really really well), but all the times i went there i didnt buy any popcorn or drinks because i really really didnt want to take out my mask, i also know cinemas make more money with their FnB then their tickets
Can anyone tell me how to find government rugulation and stuff? I'm trying to find Education (School Disciplines ) Regulation 1959?
Are there any zero gravity rooms in malaysia. Man I just wanna try that shit then I can die in peace
You can try those zero g floating pod after this mco. Really nice
I visited one at Petrosains as a kid. Not sure if it’s still there. It wasn’t a non-gravity environment but it simulated it.
[You mean zero sensory chamber?](https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=2ahUKEwig-fHh9LfwAhXFZCsKHYuMAvcQFjAAegQIAxAD&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.zerogravityfloatcentre.com%2F&usg=AOvVaw0acO0-NPGCYGVIYXK-GVn7)
No I meant like [this](https://youtu.be/jy5UDtRmbEA) hahaha
Is zero gravity room a thing now? I've heard of zero gravity flight, not quite a room though.
HahHa idk that’s what I am trying to find out
Mom opened my parcel while I wasn't home. Saw Magis Manis Coklat inside, then opened the plastic and flipped through one. When I got home, she gave that stare that says "You still pay for this shit?"
I'm so tempted to buy a big-az dildo just to make her open one.
If I were you, I'd mail myself a picture of her and see how she reacts after she opened it.
Do it pls. The dildo.
Why though, the series is bomb. I love the plot twists and pretty disasters that always ensue after eating different kinds of chocolate.
Yeah I enjoy it too. Just now read on Kugutsu's origin with Charlotte. I need to know more about them.
506 in ICU
It's even worse if the news doesn't report it. It's to build up pressure and sentiment for policies change and government initiatives.
No guarantees. Better chance than an issue not being covered at all.
Oh wow my phone screen is actually pretty without a screen protector on. The curved edges feels much nicer to swipe from. I hope this can last forever. I already ordered a flip case from shopee.
I’m using my iPhone without a cover and screen protector for a few weeks now, that’s insane considering how much of a klutz I am
I kept wrecking my screen protectors. I removed the last one because I felt the edges have a risk of cutting my finger.
>I kept wrecking my screen protectors
haha screen protectors are designed to crack easily so...... (it's literally their line of business!)
and yes curved edge does not make glass screen protector stick well.
I don't use screen protector wakakakaka
Same here, the last screen protector I had lasted just a few days after I bought it. I was doing push ups whilst my phone was on the floor and when I got up, my knee smashed against my phone causing a crack on the screen protector. Not to mention my knee was bleeding after that. So yeah, wise choice to remove it.
Surprisingly my friend got checked by police before taking MRT. He wanted to go shopping at supermarket few stops over (cheaper + more complete). Police declined him from entering MRT, even though it's not interdistrict (it's in KL), and it's even <10km.
His option is to walk 2km back home or wait for MRT feeder bus for 45 minutes. He chose the first option lol
when did the police appear? just outside the station? they check everyone? weird
Before tapping in check with police first
Well in the past week I've received 3 invitation for interviews, all at large mnc. Thing is I already have a job offer, should I go to these interviews?
No harm to try. You can gauge whether the current offer is underpaying or nah. That’s how I found out I’m actually being paid in line with the market.
I'm starting work in 1 weeks time so I don't know if I will have the time to attend the second and third round of interviews by then. I think my current offer actually pays me above the average rate.
A bit early question, if I buy a tablet from taobao, can I claim for tax refund (next year)? Or must it only be local purchases?
Hola cómo estás chicos?
[kimchi bokkeumbap ](https://photos.app.goo.gl/W4PbVGYQpQcupGzN8) for dins
Couldn’t be bothered about the plating. Kimchi juice all round.
Sunny side up pairs with perfection
Soft or semi soft yolk is the best
Oppa, where's the banchan? :p
Simple comfort food, my favourite.
Aiguuu I forgot to snap the whole table.
So focused on my plate 😆
so you did have it along with banchan! What? Kimchi?
It was miso eggplant jahaha
That’s all really.
What was your dinner?
I didn't have dinner. I know, I shouldn't skip any meal but I didn't feel hungry as I had a heavy lunch, which were leftovers of bibim-guksu and dakgangjeong that I bought the day before from a Korean restaurant and couldn't finish.
Wowwowowow look at that. You sound like a Korean food hunter to me.
Should we get some k food someday?
K food hunter? Me? Nahhhh. Despite posting about a few restaurants and cafes, I am not a foodie. Hardly. I just venture into any restaurants I pass by, and mostly spontaneous decisions.
The bibim-guksu was okay la, but the chicken was quite salty. Also, I didn't heat it up because I was too lazy and ate it cold from the fridge. Another poor decision. Peeps, I am a bad example.
Haha don’t blame yourself.
Sometimes it’s just the slacking that creeps in.
Also reheating chicken will overcook it, making it hard and dry, so I’d say it’s a good decision looking back
Considering the circumstances, the MCO 3.0 and all those SOPs, do u think its a great idea to work as intern in term of gaining experience?
Im thinking to work as an intern to gain legit & hands-on work experience.
Im in my final year of my study and thinking to do my own internship cause my study program does not include internship as part of their overall program unfortunately.
Im concern that doin intern would be unwise cause of the wfh policy.
Appreciate it if y’all can advise me regarding dis dilemma im having.
I and few of my friends doing internship currently. And so far even during MCO those that work from office will work from office. No one switched to WFH during MCO
ouh that's cool. btw, what kind of job do u and ur friends work as if u don't mind me asking?
They're mostly doing finance or marketing related internship.
They can't get the intern for the study they're in (apparently barely any international students are accepted as intern in that field) so they make do with whatever intern they can find as it's uni requirements for graudating
We should revive p. Ramlee references. Like how Reddit Uses Monty python references.
Here's what I got

My husband and I use this all the time.
Back in ‘18, I was an intern at a really famous Malay company and everyone in the office (older) knew P. Ramlee references except me. I missed out on the fun but I thought it was cute and funny.
Feels like I'm spending more during Ramadan than any other month.
Omg soya u such a cutie!!!
I’m in love with your cat (´･ω･`)
Im in love with her too! ^sometimes
Those pointy ears! ▼・ᴥ・▼
She can unleash an attack on me all she wants!
[she also bodecc](https://imgur.com/gallery/8HZTAWz) mau wet food
How can you resist that look?
I surely can't ಠಿヮಠ
Because she totally has no control (just like her mom) so i have to step up lol
By the way, did KKM lock the comment function for everyone or just me on their Facebook? It's weird because I have not made any comments but discovered the comment box missing recently.
They locked it. Before this, most of the comments were about how badly the netizens want to balik kampung for raya.
Some locked on twitter some aren't.
Me too. I think everyone; my guess is either they keep getting a lot of flak over how they're handling it or there's been a lot of people spreading misinformation/ inciting discord.
Personally, I think KKM is doing as well of a job as they possibly can, I don't blame them for the spikes, it's the questionable SOPs/ lack of enforcement of said SOPs. It's like firefighting, isolated incidents are easier to control but when you keep adding more wood to the pile (Ramadan Bazaars make it so easy), there's no point. Also doesn't help that a lot of the fuel themselves don't bother complying with SOPs.
I know a lot of people will disagree with the statement above but I do think (and observe) quite a lot of people are taking a very hands-off approach to SOPs. Everyone must take some level of responsibility into it (unless of course you've been following SOPs strictly, hats off in that case)
Agreed. I know I seldom share my thoughts about this, but seriously if the bazaars were to remained closed for this year I’d wager we have a better control over this shit show.
That recent picture regarding how packed the bazaar was in Kedah, that shit will backfire on us in a few weeks time. I guarantee it. No social distance at all and it’s jam packed with people.
Selamat berbuka puasa semua ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
Craving Shilin, McD, KFC and Sushi King all at once 🥲.
Goddamn you, hormones.
i just want to try taco bell...
I heard from my colleagues that the food is not nice. Average at best.
l gain 3 kg during Ramadhan...and its not over yet.
tunggu raya after this
Had enough of GNS blasting spams, and decided to live chat them to remove my number from thier list. I was told to send an email. I got a reply stating I want receive any spams, but the unfortunate part is that theg spammed a promotion on the email.🤦♂️
My mental state is deteriorating and it's just been days... The next few weeks are gonna be tough.
Just go out for a drive once in a while. Screw lock down. At this point,more will get hit with mental illness than stupid covid
over a year now
Ikr. It's been like living in a freaking yo-yo
I rather have one MCO 1.0 for two weeks, rather than keep extending this joke mco 3.0
I think most people have reached this stage. With each passing day, it's getting harder to remember how life was like before December 2019.
I still remember saying goodbye to my colleagues during the first MCO.
*see you in two weeks time once MCO is lifted..later I ping you for lunch..”
Gosh that was a long time ago. Everyone thought it’s just gonna a two week ordeal ya know…we’re gonna quarantine ourselves for while and once this shitstorm settles, we’re back to our usual routine….oh jeez..
December 2019? What’s that?
I'm so detached with life that imma not even aware it's MCO 3.0 already. Or am I ignorant?
I'm just in the I don't give a shit mood.
Helping my little brother with mathemathic quizziz
*Rahit ada 1876 ekor ayam. Dia membeli 784 ekor ayam lagi. Berapakah jumlah ayam Rahit sekarang?*
"Abang Aqeem, kenapa dia beli banyak ayam? Soalan apa ni?"
Teach him the other type of "ayam".
You can change this question into something he can relate to
My younger brother is in the same age also. He was watching bleach yesterday.
I asked him what episode is he on .
then I asked how many episodes are there in bleach.
Then I asked how many episodes more until he can finish it
He got so woke when I show him how to apply subtraction in real life
sebab dia nak jadik bapak ayam....
the chickin godfather
The sheer terror in his eyes!!! He should be proud of himself, he conquered that fear! Eventually!
Kek, but at the same time, power to him for getting the jab nonetheless.
LMAO THANKS I NEEDED THE LAUGH HAHAHA
soon going to be 5k cases . some dont even give a F.dear god young ppl also kena la.goverment really really stupid.my bro work at hospital in Kelantan. katil all penuh.
I think ppl are fed up ady with those shitty SOP and double standard
Doesn't mean you shouldn't follow.
I still follow.
i am but still follow the sop. the double standard that i really hate.
we are going to that road. our health care look ok but my brother said they all understaff.kelantan especially but because of local mindset kena pun kena lah, mati dah takdir.
> mati dah takdir.
I really hate it whenever anyone uses this excuse. If there is something that you can do to prevent it from happening, why not do it?
The argument was that even if I do something to prevent it, it’ll still happen because it’s destined to be happened.
its hard to argue with stupid , especially the religious ones.you dont know how hard to ask them to get vaccine.
I can imagine, I wonder why don’t just prick all of them and be done with it
you know what my dad said, he never had a vaccine before he is healthy 70 years. i just slap bahu dia..ni cucuk bahu ni vacsin la. its the facebook & crazy ustaz
Yeah I can understand what you’re going through. I just show India’s hospital situation. Might not help but hopefully can be a bit of eye opening.
still not entirely sure how the restrictions work, can anyone help give me some clarity?
am a sabahan student in selangor, got tickets to go back home this 10th. will i be allowed to come back to selangor? i kinda NEED to be here because of some circumstances, i can't stay in sabah for reasons :( if i'm a student, can i go back and return?
Hey guys, any idea what the current slang "beli cincau" means? I've seen it everywhere especially on FB
A reporter brought up the issue of helangs violating interstate travel rules with shitty excuses like "Nak ke Melaka membeli cincau" during Abang Long's PC .
[Nak ke Melaka membeli cincau](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GfVVv0ZnVGM)
started before that actually. the reporter just made it more viral
"pergi kedai membeli cincau" is one half of a pantun dua kerat. the other half could be anything that ends with lancau.
pergi kedai membeli cincau,
kera memang lancau.
basically censored version of mencarut.
This reminds me of AA’s 2x5, 5 kali Babi.
On Wednesday, SOPs still allow indoor and outdoor sports activity. Yesterday, new SOPs disallow indoor and outdoor sports activity. Today, news saying there'll be meeting to appeal the decision from yesterday.
Gotta say, I pity gym owners man, hopefully the one near my house is able to keep staying afloat. Would hate for it to go under considering it's the only one available with a usually empty open studio for me to dance in.
In other news, guess my office is not doing WFH this time around cause I haven't heard anything from my managers about it. Oh well, guess it wouldn't have mattered much for us anyway considering the other 450+ factory workers are still coming in as usual. Saving grace about this is at least our own employees are proactive about reporting if they're close contact and we haven't heard about any cases here.
Interstate travel has been banned for so long but number still going up, where does this number comes from? maybe we should try allowing interstate travel xD
I have no job, still got the first phase's
Yes rayuan it if can, I can't find the button for it tho
Do you make more than RM2500 a month?
Wow, that sucks
Happy Hi-Res day again everybody. 4K!
Which shops (online/offline) do you guys prefer when buying trousers/pants (casual)? I've been checking on Shopee mostly but worried about their overall quality cos even tho there's lots of 5* reviews they could be fake reviews
jalan jalan japan. Cheap and with good quality
Might not apply if you're a man, but
Offline - Uniqlo, Nichi, Brands Outlet, kedai bundle (Japanese pants don't use polyester much, love the quality)
Online - Novela, Kei Mag, Jin Hayari
I usually walk in (normal days) to Uniqlo.
Then again my work attire in the office are a pair of jeans and whatever t-shirt or polo, so it's made a lot easier; one pair of the selvedge denim, wear for years.
Still they have shirts and pants there, you can try them out.
Zalora. They carry anything from low-end to designer but never sell fake or low quality stuff.
If people call Chinese people bananas for being yellow on the outside and white on the inside, what do you call Malay people when they're white on the inside?
I wanna get a different opinion cause all my dad ever called me was Mat Salleh Buntut Hitam.
🎶🎶🎵 nini cokelat celup, nini cokelat celup, nini 🎵🎶🎶
Mat salleh also got buntut hitam lol
Doesn't that only apply to the mom.
It's langsat, isn't it?
I've heard coconut before.
i love the reduced traffic! at this time i would be in standstill traffic a week ago on friday
Friends staying at cheras said that traffic is better but not by a lot.
I'm taking MRT to damansara, nope, it's even more packed than yesterday
Traffic is not reduced here in Bangsar! Jam packed, like MCO is not happening.
working crowd + bazaar perhaps, bangsar is my fav road to bypass toll
Ah! You must have seen the sunken main road then, too
is it that roadworks near mcd/public bank traffic light?
Yes! There is a running river underneath it. The heavy rain did it in.
interesting, nowadays because of that roadworks i take the backway from the TMC/mosque turning in from jln maarof to BSC to go jln duta instead of passing thru that roadworks
I love and hate it at the same time. Some people drive recklessly due to the reduced amount of cars on the road and it's dangerous.
can confirm, saw someone speeding thru the ldp bc less traffic
wait can someone explain the sops i can go bazaar but i cannot go jogging,eh? :/
bazar bagi duit dekat kerajaan dan DBKL. sebab tu dispite beratus-ratus kes bazar masih bukak macam biasa atas alasan: "kesian peniaga kecil dah melabur duit"
kelantan pun tutup bazzar ramadhan
the smell of food will scare the virus away while your sweats attracts the virus.
Go jogging in bazaar then, problem solved
Modern problems require modern solutions
Big brain time.
4498 cases today GGWP
great. tomorrow 2 big 2 small all 3 vendors.
kena pls belanja
Why does everyone roast me for having an anime pfp lol
Profile pic on Reddit?
I wouldn't say everyone, and like forcebubble said, many don't. I certainly don't see anything wrong with that.
Many of us didn't, my guy.
You do you, forget the haterzzz.
Is surat miti and surat company enough to cross state? Anyone can confirm?
My dad has been travelling around the country with MITI + company letter. No police permit needed.
I'll close both eye if it mean putting food on the table and i have no safety net to fall on.
Look out for numero uno amirite, everything else is fake one.
There is concept called FUM - Fck U Money.
If you have it, you can say Fck U if you don't like anything and walk away.
If you don't have it, you take the Fck U and pocket the money.
Yeah, that's fuck me money.
I might have a little fuck you money, but I also have some fuck you commitments T.T
