the healthiest thing i learned from my partner knowing how to address insecurities without hindering exploration & enjoyment


TrixEnder

I mean addressing insecurities is simply improvement and shouldn't be something to be feared. Just curious what insecurities do you have? For some reason I feel like I don't have any or never had any


JeremiahE1999

come on...are we really having ismail sabri as our next PM? this guy was terrible even when he was head of MKN...vague SOPs by MKN, no qurantine after sabah elections, reopening too quickly after 2nd MCO


a_HerculePoirot_fan

UMNO has not officially confirmed this. Expected yes, but until it's officially announced, there is still hope that he will not be the PM candidate.


OriMoriNotSori

Let's be real, saying this just prolongs the inevitable, it's 99% gonna be Ismail Sabri the moment Moo resigned.


CodeDoor

Did Bersatu already confirm their support for him? Muhyiddin and the others too?


OriMoriNotSori

Not yet as of now, the only news is that umno is in talks with bersatu and PAS. On anwar's camp, nothing on that front at all.


CodeDoor

Only thing currently set in stone is that all UMNO MPs support ismail sabri I believe on the Anwar front, they are discussing with the various MPs in Sabah from both sides.


emailmonkey2

My dad is an elderly CCP worshipper. He was justifying the Xinjiang detention camps just now. I could not stand listening to it. I don't talk to him much nowadays. He's like the Chinese version of alt right


LoL_is_for_hamkachan

wait till u manage to join pro ccp fb group created by malaysians


Lurkeratitbest

Seeing how powerful/influential China has became, some Chinese admire CCP, and are proud to share the same ancestor with people of China. These people usually support CCP on various policies, believe that it is for the greater good of whole China. Personally i am terrified with how CCP treat people/nation who they considered as obstacle to their vision of great China


skylerwin2640

Most aunties uncles I know supports CCP.Even our local chinese media copy fake news from pro-CCP media. [source from Malaysiakini](https://pages.malaysiakini.com/hk-misinfo/en/). It baffled Hong Kong and Taiwan people why so many Malaysian Chinese supports CCP when the HK protest happened. Yeah I'm going to tell them stop believing in fake news.


xaladin

Interesting. What's your take on the camps and the alternative?

How did that happen? Motherboard ded? (may your 6 years laptop rest well)


amon_meiz

Ah, a bad time to replace new gaming laptop cuz everything pc related are expensive now, 😅 But lenovo (apart from being really good) sometimes got sale on their website. Sometimes really good deal (rtx3070 laptop for rm5.5k) Only bad news is it took betwen 3 weeks to 2 months for it to arrive,due to covid etc.

funnily enough, as a person who built a pc last year, this year's pricing in comparison... I'd buy a laptop instead

I think that'll be enough to get a high end pc, generally you'd want GPU to be 50% of the price, and you fill in the rest of your budget afterwards


lucon

Does anyone have experience buying ebook from Barnes & Noble and using Nook book app? I want to buy something unavailable on Amazon/Kindle due to region restrictions. But it seems to be available on Nook.


ztirk

Wait isn't Nook discontinued?


lucon

I have no idea either. That's why I'm asking. It seems to me that on Windows at least. The app is only available on the US store, not for Malaysian. So, it's probably the same region restrictions so I'm back to square one.


snowco

Unethical but perhaps libgen and zlibrary? You can convert files from epub to mobi using Calibre, but first you'll have to figure out how to get the book file out of the Nook app/folder...it should be possible to get the file? Drm these days, I wouldn't be surprised.


lucon

Ya I know the options. But I wanna support the author if I could. Stupid region lock just means that we're forced to get books illegally even if we want to pay.


sawedknickers

The grocery shop I frequent was unexpectedly closed today. The sign in the door says "Closed. Tauke sakit selepas vaksin". LOL

Somehow I miss my mother's Fried rice, made hastily with eggs and sausages.. other fried rice might taste more delicious, but my mother's rice made me happy. I miss my mother. 🥺


WubbyLubbyDoobDoob

I know what you mean. I got into cooking last year and a lot of my early attempts were like what she used to make when our maid first left (she never used to cook). I realized how simple the stuff she made initially was but I appreciated it all the same. A year later, I've mastered so many more dishes, each more complex than those first few ones and yet I find myself missing my mom's nasi goreng sosej & bawang.


thegrandwitch

All the "Abah" people need to be hate crimed. I can't with all the comments I've seen on socmed.

just_another_jabroni

So the family is looking for a printer. Any suggestions? If possible just wanna get laser one I guess? Won't be needing color much. Budget should be around Rm600 I guess


amon_meiz

If only print black and white. I suggest Brother hl1110 https://shopee.com.my/product/346529005/9781194276?smtt=0.56657547-1629209650.9 I own one, and perform very well. Fast printing speed and most importantly, cheap refill https://shopee.com.my/product/6042508/422525947?smtt=0.56657547-1629209694.9 Rm12. 50 per cartridge, can print up to 1k pages


StuffTurkeyFace

I'm using a Canon LBP6000, its a quite old B&W laser printer. Newer models are sub-RM500 but are print-only. Its a major step up from the ink-jets printers but I'm not sure how well it compares to other laser printers


schlongmon

How often do you need colour? If it’s only occasional, it’s worth getting a black and white laser while making occasional trips to a print shop. Sounds counterintuitive, but colour laser printers cost significantly more than black and white ones, and inkjets are a scam (expensive cartridges and printer heads that clog if not used regularly). To answer your actual question, get a Brother printer. I have an Epson at home that works fine as well, but the Brother I use at work is a tank. Avoid HP at all costs.


just_another_jabroni

Oh yea we prioritise b&w printing. For color we can always go to the shops. Aight will take Brother into consideration


YamPotatoRanger

my dad has a Brother printer that lasted around 10 years and counting

What's next, helmets?


squirrel_with_a_nut

Read a study about how people tend to drive more recklessly if the car has safety features like air bags and seatbelts. Something along the line of less likelihood to be punished by death gives drivers more confidence to go fast & furious. So yea seatbelt can be dangerous in a sense that you know you won't get throw outside of your vehicle in a crash and that enables you to drive like a maniac.


the_far_yard

Combine that with driving with a flat tire, and go back home and start chopping vegetables with their eyes closed too.

How come it doesn't feel colder as I have air conditioning on and it's raining now. It's even hotter than usual without air conditioning and not raining D:


amon_meiz

Maybe your aircon need service? 😅 Or check the filters, might be full/clogged with dustm


maharajalela

> It's even hotter than usual without air conditioning and not raining D: it might be humidity. if it is very humid, your body can't lose heat by evaporation. you'll have to drink water that is significantly lower than body temperature to cool down.


MingiHao

Nvm, I switch off the air conditioning instead :c

So Afghanistan has fallen to the taliban, can we send PAS over there and be done with it thank you.

Tarot is useful as an introspection tool since it uses the archetypes to tell a story. I do use it, but don't believe there's any supernatural thing about it. But why get into an argument about it?


[deleted]

[удалено]


weecious

So, what was the reading about actually? This is all over the place.


metadataisnotreal

its the same thing when hot ladies talk about their astrology signs. You listen till you bed them then you leave. A lady who thinks astrology is a thing is a wacko. You can be a wacko and be successful, oh god but I cant imagine my hard earn money to pay my 500 Sg dollar astrology reading.


a_HerculePoirot_fan

>You listen till you bed them then you leave. So pretend to be good listeners up to the point when you bed them and then ditch them? What do you take those women for? If men do not like listening to women going on and on about astrological signs, tell them. But don't use women just to satisfy their sexual needs.


metadataisnotreal

I mean it is just one topic among many. Just be a good listener or ignore it. It's totally fine. Why do u need to enter an unnecessary conflict & for what? A relationship doesn't mean full long time commitment. If you want short term, this can be acceptable for now. Later u can just change it.


blepinghuman

> You listen till you bed them then you leave. That’s just being manipulative. OP should just be honest and give up on the relationship now imo.


metadataisnotreal

It's very difficult to cure superstition and idiocy but you can try and risk ur time/effort/commitment.


weecious

No one is asking you to cure them, what makes you think they need to be cured? If they're into astrology and you're not, just go your separate ways instead of mansplaining. Good grief, who do you think you are?


metadataisnotreal

* In the scenario where u want to be with them


weecious

You either accept it as part of them, or you walk away. You. Do. Not. Have. The. Rights. To. Change. Others. Get. It.


metadataisnotreal

why not? People change their opinion all the time. That's the function of conversation, an exchange of ideas. Lady A likes Mister B. Mister B is a heavy gambler. Lady A says please stop gambling, research says so & so, I don't want our life savings go to Genting. Mister B, love Lady A so much that he went for Gamblers Anonymous/Gambling Therapy If u like the person, think they have a potential, then make efforts for your future & for your partner. Or abandon them without making any effort? how cruel is that. Man that fucks up.


weecious

>You listen till you bed them then you leave. That's called a fuckboi. >A lady who thinks astrology is a thing is a wacko But a man who does it is not?


metadataisnotreal

well, u can insert whatever gender and it will be the same.


weecious

Leaving the gender out, it's called being manipulative. Just pretending to listen in hopes of bedding anyone, what a scummy move.


metadataisnotreal

if agreeing on astrology signs is manipulative... then u might want to consider your expectation settings.


weecious

How is this \>agreeing on astrology signs is manipulative ​ the same as \> Just pretending to listen in hopes of bedding anyone, what a scummy move You are either missing the point on purpose or you're not getting my point of view at all.


metadataisnotreal

U don't agree with one topic among many others, do u get up and leave? No, u listen or change to another topic. But later let's say two years down the road and want to have a family. She insist to pay few thousands to consult a famous astrologist to advice her if this year is a good year to have a baby, then... u might want to end the relationship.


weecious

Nvm, I'm done with you. You just don't get it.


metadataisnotreal

sure. have a nice night.

timmmmmmtimot

Anyone here know how long does it takes for the car dealer to deliver your car from the day you book it ? I’m thinking of booking the Saga one.


dahteabagger

Go and enquire from a sales assistant in Proton FB. Depends on model. The pandemic isn't helping coz manufacturing has been halted for nearly 3-4 months. I pre-ordered X50 and since they were already late on the backlog orders (with some waiting for nearly a year already), it probably would take me a while to get it.


TellMyselfBeHappy

You are not buying a roll royce. Saga is not build on order. Proton factory plan to build number of cars per year / month / day by models, the assembly line run and churn out the cars. Your order is put in the sales system. Factory will build so many saga per day. Proton also manage inventory. When it reach you, you get your car. As to how long it take to assemble a car from start to finish in the plant? Less than 15 hours.


konigsjagdpanther

you're hardly answering OP's question. X50 and X70 are not built to order too and yet buyers have to wait many months to get their hands on one. also, selling ready stock is a thing dealers do y'know? besides when a car arrives it's not ready for sale. dealers have to connect the battery, service it, install dealer options (if applicable), enable/install the infotainment system (if applicable) and also wash + polish it before delivery. that takes at least a few days when queued up with cars from other customers. It's a lot more than just "when it reach you, you get your car"


timmmmmmtimot

Yup cuz my cousin had booked her MYVI and the dealer said that it may takes about 3 month to get her key cuz the production is not operate due to MCO


forcebubble

On normal days it could be as fast as one week+ depending on the reseller. My colleague got his within two (inclusive of tinting) because the agent was super efficient and they have stock.


timmmmmmtimot

2 month ?


forcebubble

Weeks. I have to tell you that he was dealing with Honda, so I am not sure about Proton.

Hey... Med student here. About to enter first year at mahsa University. Any recommendations for medical textbooks? Thanks:)


im-on-mobile-monyet

Follow your lecturer recommendations. Find the old second hand cheap versions and get those, nothing older than 5 years for referencing purposes.


Nic8318

Okay thanks! Any specific books you'd reccomend?


im-on-mobile-monyet

Start with anatomy and physiology. If you can get anything from 2017 to current time should do you good. Then work on finding 'pharmacology'


Duccalto

The only textbook that I find useful is Robbin and Contran for pathology. Don’t buy all textbook for every subject, most of the time you won’t have time to read them. Wait and see which subject is hard for you, and ask your seniors and lecturers for recommendations, they knew better, sometimes lecture notes/online resources are good enough, but if want extra knowledge, no one is stopping you. And please don’t pirate textbook at zlibrary or libgen, they have all textbook that you need, absolutely free, doesn’t require sign up, but it’s very unethical.


maharajalela

Just reading this article https://kotaku.com/the-messy-stalled-reckoning-at-an-assassins-creed-co-d-1847336158 about how French expats at a gaming company were sexually assaulting local staff and paying themselves millions while the locals were making shit wages makes me furious because I have heard similar things happening here. Fuck this expat worshipping culture. Fuck MM2H, I'm glad the government will raise all the limits. There are better ways for our country to earn money. I hope they make everything much stricter. We can develop our own expertise. Thank you very much.


konigsjagdpanther

> Fuck this expat worshipping culture. Fuck MM2H, I'm glad the government will raise all the limits. There are better ways for our country to earn money. I hope they make everything much stricter. We can develop our own expertise. Thank you very much. "we can develop our own expertise" sure........... it's not that i want to look down on Malaysia on purpose, but as a medium-income NIC whereby brain drain is the norm, i don't see that happening anytime soon.


maharajalela

> but as a medium-income NIC whereby brain drain is the norm, i don't see that happening anytime soon. and if we keep importing expats instead of genuine efforts to raise locals, it'll never happen


konigsjagdpanther

Thinly veiled xenophobia but ok


EsquireSquire

Boss. Mm2h was meant to court retirees. And why we worry about expat sexual assault when our own people do it more often due to weak enforcement against those crimes.


maharajalela

> Mm2h was meant to court retirees. even the new mm2h restrictions say min age only 35. the american crypto guy that murdered that girl in dang wangi was how old? if it was me, i would make minimum mm2h age be 55 and above


EsquireSquire

U need help if you think expats commit more crime in malaysia than malaysians. If you wanna make equivalents, our ex PM was also implicated in a murder and the investigation surrounding it was a joke. I say again, we dont have an expat crime problem, we have a law enforcement problem.


maharajalela

> our ex PM was also implicated in a murder and the investigation surrounding it was a joke. and he was basically a British expat who could barely speak Malay when he started. his cronies like Jho Low and Azrul were also British or Anglo educated and trained. Corruption must be dense in the water there. Education St. John's Institution Malvern College Alma mater University of Nottingham


EsquireSquire

Lol. You so delusional until blame the education system in the UK before blaming the person himself. Get some counseling man.


maharajalela

try eat less chilli, then you won't feel the heat so much


EsquireSquire

I will eat less chili when you go for counselling for misplaced anger stemming for some deep seated trauma against foreigners. Lol.


maharajalela

Pointing out crimes committed by expats instead of letting them go free as has been done again and again is not misplaced anger. The problem is misplaced justice. Read about Richard Huckle. Read about Alex Johnson. Many others. Then despair as your realize our local justice system just let them go free because of expat worshippers. That's why you need to eat less chilli.


EsquireSquire

Lol. And you need to go for counselling when you focus on a few rich expats using money to buy justice when literally everyone in malaysia can buy justice not just expats. Haha. Maybe open your eyes more and dont tunnel vision. Thats why i said you need to go for counselling. Anyway thank god it doesnt look many people share your fucked up views.


tomkokotom

don't need to talk about whether police do their job, in the first place a good handful of people died in police custody


konigsjagdpanther

but wE cAn dEvelOp oUr OwN exPertIse. sounds like a closet racist to me. generalising the entire skin color just because of one news article.


maharajalela

yes, i am racist against expat worshippers. seriously, you think we don't have a problem with white worshipping here?


konigsjagdpanther

What is the law broken here again???


EsquireSquire

White worship is a problem with worshippers not the people they put on a pedestal. Same with religion. Most of the religion is like be tolerant, be kind to neighbours. The worshippers instead are like fuck that, let me focus about the part where it says we can beat women. Dont blame the subject idiots choose to diefy. Blame the idiots.


unverified_email

Also “french expats”. Lol as if they only hired french people to SG to work.


maharajalela

> Also “french expats”. Lol as if they only hired french people to SG to work. did you read the article? that's exactly what they did. it was called a french mafia company. hiring only french (and french canadians) for all the top jobs while locals did all the shitwork.


justshushi

what if we worry about both? of course our ppl do it more due to higher % is it?


EsquireSquire

Then why complain specifically against expat sex assault instead of sex assault in general? We dont have a foreigner sex assualt problem, we have a bad crime enforcement problem.


cyan_experiment

Just something I was wondering. Is it possible for coalitions, during the campaign period as part of their many promises, put up a proposed cabinet list if they are elected? So it would show the composition and size of the cabinet, and the public can also scrutinise the credibility of the person in charge of that particular ministry. But not sure if this is possible or not haha.


Mr69Niceee

It is hard but possible, just that some candidates will lose the election and although the party won the election. And it becomes a problem for candidates that won but didn’t get a slice.


efund_

It is possible, however many don't do that fearing that maybe any of the proposed cabinet members may lose in the constituency they contesting. Plus, depending on who's on the list, opposing parties/coalitions may take this chance scrutinise their opponents more. Edit : typo


im-on-mobile-monyet

kernan_rio

I read some estimates that place it around 2023. Probably you'll be seeing intermittent lockdowns until then.


[deleted]

dafock 2023

Correct. Based on current analysis where waves of Covid will repeat intermittently until either the world is sufficiently vaccinated against the Delta variant or Covid evolved itself to become less dangerous like the flu.


Warm-Currency9853

Selangor will be a part if the intermittent lockdown haha


xelM1

Everyone should watch CODA on Apple TV+ NOW! Nobody is responsible to attend for the disabilities/shortcomings/weaknesses/egos/dreams/needs of others including those of your parents. You don’t have to feel, not even a single shred guilty about not able to attend to them when you know that you have pushed them *enough* and you got your life ahead to carry. And if you fail for *trying* to attend to them and they made you feel guilty about it that they failed because of you, say nothing and GTFO.


demurefox97

THANK YOU! Asians are always taught from a young age that if they needed to, they should give up all their hopes and aspirations to cater to their family's wants and needs.

swissking

Love laughing at those smug victorians because they thought only 1 lockdown was enough lmfao


OnlyLys

> Lockdown capita of the world lmao. I'm pretty sure we have them beat in number of lockdowns. > they abandon the lockdown idea Why would they? They've had 6 months of 0 cases because they were keen on locking down early. Even if lockdowns fail now (due to Delta being much more transmissible), they've still had 1.5 years of success given that they have a total of less than 3000 cases since the start of the pandemic.


EsquireSquire

There like so many other countries that lockdown for longer and harder than NZ. Y u so salty that when NZ do it, it actually works for them covid wise?


EliCho90

Not salt, just confirming my observation. Asian country really do take their own sweat time in vaccinating the public. Rollout is rather pathetic with only 300k doses done in august alone. Govt there keep sticking on the lockdown model while didn't do much for vaccination . We vaccinate 10x as much per day compared to them [https://www.theguardian.com/world/2021/aug/04/ardern-labour-popularity-stumbles-on-new-zealand-slow-road-to-vaccination](https://www.theguardian.com/world/2021/aug/04/ardern-labour-popularity-stumbles-on-new-zealand-slow-road-to-vaccination) Was only a matter of time before covid hit back at them and i am happy the last fortress fell. Lockdown model is dead, time to move on from that


unverified_email

First of all, its 1 case, I wouldn’t call it “hitting back at them”. Secondly, vaccines were given by priority to countries suffering, and supply is limited. Its not as if the world is sitting on an unused stock of vaccines nobody wants. If New Zealand had said “mine mine mine” then Malaysia (and many other SEA countries) may not be vaccinating at 300k doses per day, so instead of shitting on them, maybe look over and say thank you. > i am happy the last fortress fell At the start of this pandemic, I remember saying, “no one is on the side of covid”, maybe I was wrong. And you are happy why? You are not coming off as someone “ahead of the curve”, just an asshole. There is a line between anti-lockdown and celebrating someone elses pain.

New Zealand? Asian? Thats abit of a reach? Neither geographically or culturally.

Maybe the better term would be Eastern half of the world. Broadly speaker, I'd say the living with covid narrative line is drawn from America until India while zero covid line is from China until Hawaii Will be interesting to see which of these ex fortresses finally change their tune after singapore. My bet is on Vietnam

Nz return to normalcy faster than any country in the world. 0 cases for the last 6 months. They can afford slow rollout cause nobody dying. Dunno how is that a called fail. Meanwhile failed lockdown and early lifting of lockdown still have cases in the thousands all over the world. So dunno why you say the model itself fail when its usually fail implementation Notice all the pro lockdown and anti lockdown people in the sub are really the same 3 or 4 ppl. And those 3-4 ppl usualy have some bias, miss outside food, miss travelling vs scared go out, virus transmitted by air. To me y'all the same. Quoting specific bits of information to support ur own bias instead of being objective and make decisions on actual data/ feedback.

> Was only a matter of time before covid hit back at them and i am happy the last fortress fell. You're happy that a virus (that could cost lives or livelihoods) has spread to another country?

Dude’s works in healthcare but is constantly “if they die, they die”. Lol.


MoreAirtime

Tf do you want people working in healthcare to do? Get emotional everytime someone dies? Lol dude prolly sees a fuck ton of people die everyday. Most of them dying from Covid are old, boring and lifeless people anyways


wc967

Exactly this. As much as there are doomers, he seem pretty hell bent on no lockdown for a healthcare person. I guess, like the below reply, ppl are biased. With NZ total cases, and at about 20% fully vaccinated / 30% at first dose (from the link he provided himself), their benchmark feels pretty good. We only saw our ramp out around that time too.


EsquireSquire

I say d, when ppl bias they just see things that support their own argument. This guy clearly just not happy cannot cross border. Everything else dont matter.


EliCho90

unless you turn it to a hermit kingdom, then covid is just a matter of When instead of If before it comes in Their opposition already blasted the current govt for slow vaccine rollout yet govt take a tidak apa attitude attributing to the success of lockdown. Why vaccinate when it's not there? Sticking to Pfizer only strategy earlier this year https://www.newsroom.co.nz/whats-behind-nzs-slow-vaccine-rollout Jacinda Govt squandered away time thinking covid wont make a come back just like the rest of other covid free fortresses back in Q1 2021 and its gonna come right back around to bite Jacinda in the arse

Well good news for me, I am not out 300 because I have to replace my laptop battery because it has no issues. The bad news is that it was actually my touchpad which was busted and because it was damaged by liquid the warranty is void. Don't even know how the liquid got in but at least I'm only down 100 now I guess?

[TIL that apart from alcoholic drinks, there are also potato chips by Guinness.](http://imgur.com/a/OtqcEpw) Bought at Wmart to try since I was curious. A bit of bitter aftertaste, and not too salty imo. Apparently the chips are infused with the iconic flavour of Guinness, but I can't be sure since I don't drink Guinness.
