WILL THERE BE ANOTHER REDDIT CENSUS THIS YEAR?

SengalBoy

So I'm about to start a job this Thursday that I reluctantly accepted from a place that I interned earlier this year. Had mixed memories about it but I suffered mental breakdowns so as a result my anxiety is at all time high. But the boss personally messaged me if I wanna work there and he's one of the most well known people in the industry so I'd be very very stupid to turn it down, plus the pay is nice for a probation period, loads of benefits but the potential stress is worrying me. The worst part is that the boss doesn't know of my breakdowns. I'm just worried if history repeats itself or my past haunts me, and I'm worried even further if one terrible day is enough for me to snap and end it.The biggest worry that I have is that if depression is finally starting to affect my work ability which thankfully didn't when studying. So the question is, should I tell him about my mental health issues?


aWitchonthisEarth

Repost tomm, now engagement low.


SengalBoy

Will do.

damn i think i might have a heart problem, or a stress problem, when i breathe too deep i have hard time exhaling and wanting to breathe in more, i can hear my pulse, the back of my head feels like getting gripped.. if im alive tomorrow im going to the doctor

Male escorts in Malaysia? All I see is female where to find male

Are you female? It's pretty easy to find male-for-male escorts...

Thr0w_thr3w

WARNING: Rant ahead. I was so looking forward for a trip to another state to finally submit my Thesis hardcopy. But then when I told my older sister about the trip, she went ahead and invited herself and my cousin to join in. They're willing to go as far as asking their police friend to cop their surat rentas negeri for whatever bullshit reason just to tag along. Sigggghhhhhh. FML after months of us WFH together not meeting other people much, I was so looking forward to spend some time away from them. I mean, I love them as families should but damnit I just needed a breather and a trip alone was just perfect. Now with interstate travel restriction expected to be lifted soon, they're asking me to delay my trip. Aaaaarrrrrrggghhg I feel so rimas. AITAH?

NTA if you already explained to them that you just want to be alone.

Yo can we start a witch hunt on the government. Organise a mass spam by users on their twitter, facebook, youtube comments etc. Krony policy is fucking bullshit,


LeonTheCat448

I used to think that I can sail boat ez to Indonesia from Malacca in straight line so can go taste Indonesia food. Watched a video about the Malacca strait and realised that I'd either be caught by the marines because they think I'm a pirate or get crushed by container ships.


AnneKyuuzaki

If you can do that, i wanna follow. Indonesian food are 👍👍


posdeadbeat

or get crushed by pirates who hijacked the container ship


KonkeyDong98

Hey guys, so we’ve pretty much been stuck at home working/studying with all the lockdowns. I’m just wondering, what does your day looks like? Do you guys have a routine that you guys maintain that balances between work, well-being, and staying in shape? Tell me all about it :)


thalassophillea

Struggling so hard to get into a routine. I'm having difficulty waking up and getting out of bed, making food that isn't shit, and exercising. At best, my day consist of waking up in the morning for online class (while staying in bed), then get up and cook something simple, eat and Netflix, do a tiny amount of work (or not at all), long nap/ walk my dog/go laze by the pool or swim a little. Sometimes I manage to take a long walk by myself in the evening, I really want to get into a healthy routine but so far I do not have the mental energy to push myself there yet.


PlsMakeSense

Decided to read the 12MP instead of whatever is being spun by news/ social media. Good:Focus on aerospace, agriculture, services and halal industries. Focus on Sabah and Sarawak socioeconomic development. Promoting venture capitalism. Enforced standards of quality on affordable housing Stronger laws to hold developers accountable and favor home buyers Bad: Government just opened up a fuckton of Units/ Majlis/ Jawatankuasa and apparently one of its commitments is to reduce beuaracracy and have a flatter structure. "Ethical Use of Digital Platform" <- China da-ge Enhance MCMC/ Sedition Act to curb seditious material. <- fuck any politician that allows this to pass. Poor Chinese and Indians - 1 paragraph each in the 12MP. Bumiputra empowerment 7 pages..... Doesnt seem fair but one of the stats is 80% of B40 are Bumiputera. Disposal of Bumiputera sector companies only to Bumiputera. IPO opportunities provided under Special Provision of Bumiputera Shares. One of the stats provided is that about 80% of Amanah Saham is owned by top 15% of Bumiputeras. Along the same trends, seems only the rich will benefit from this. ?????: Ceiling price to affordable housing to be introduced. More housing on waqf land and reclaimed sewage treatment plants


134679888

>Disposal of Bumiputera sector companies only to Bumiputera Most of my malay friends dont give a fuck about stock LOL Now all forex cyrpto... you rich then gov will be like, 'cukai please' Next time all annual reports gonna see major shareholders with names like Tunku bla bla.... Come on lah, bumiputera? Normal rakyat will be 'bumi' while those who are capable or interesting of buying would be 'putera' You have to separate this to see the magic of it.


hatstraw27

Damn that "cukai please" line has same energy as "money please parks and rec meme"


EdgyPerson234

the Bumiputera IPO shit is bullshit. How are we supposed to uplift the poor Bumiputra if the rich bumiputera gets to monopolize on the IPO shares


xaladin

>Poor Chinese and Indians - 1 paragraph each in the 12MP. Bumiputra empowerment 7 pages..... Doesnt seem fair but one of the stats is 80% of B40 are Bumiputera. maybe 1.75 pages should be fairer, 'cause you know, 20%.


PlsMakeSense

I think they should stop playing the race card. If 80% of B40 are Bumi, just dedicate the entire chapter to B40. It achieves the same effect while actually providing support equally. One of the key commitments is apparently inclusiveness.


fanfanye

Bumiputera IPO seems largely abusable imo.. you have one market that only a few million people can enter? and realistically only 1m of them have the capital to move that market? ggwp


EliCho90

Bumiputera already have preference when they ballot for IPO. 9/10 times it's not even fully utilized!


dodosandnenes

Applying for Bumiputera IPO shares has been around for awhile through MITI. What you need to do is submit a few documents (Tabung Haji, ASB statements, application forms) by mail to MITI and they will allocate you shares that you can then pay with bank drafts. However, the reality is this system only benefits the extremely rich. Those with 7-figure capital. Normal, middle class bumi almost always fail to get any shares despite having perfect documentation. People have been questioning if there is any foul play involved with awarding the shares.


fanfanye

that one basically says from 10m sold at rm10, 3m \*can\* be booked by bumis That one while unfair does not in anyway disrupt market This new rule basically says the whole 10m \*NEEDS\* to be bought by bumis, huge diff


PlsMakeSense

the way i understand it, you can sign up for a bumiputera only plan which will let you buy a certain amount of stocks at IPO once approved. But yes, likely to be abused by the already rich.


illogical_11

Few months into working, I realized that I can't work under pressure. I can deliver results, but at night I'll get headache - cry 😳


RecedingHairLineMan

this might not mean much but hang in there bro and try to balance your work/life. Working hard is good but working too hard is detrimental in your mental health. I've been given comments such as "no matter how much you've done, a mistake is all they will remember" , "company can easily replace you if you resigned" etc. all company has their 'flavours' but the best taste is during payday :) . My tip is to keep an open mind and do not take all everything into heart. Why wear yourself down when you can spend that time on hobby, family, food etc ? sorry if it sound kind of DC instead or Marvel (meaning dark) but try to hang on and learn all the things in your company. Get experience before planning to spread out in the working world. Cheers


fanfanye

the best way in life is to put in just the same amount of effort, whether under pressure/or free time anxiety over pressure is something that can be trained, just chill.

Im confused about the Disney Hotstar+ . Our Astro is have the Movie Packs which makes us qualify for free subscription to Disney Hotstar right? Already activated it yet when we log in using the registered phone number for Astro it asked us to subscribe to it. Is there something wrong or do we need to wait for more time? Since I've just tired to activate it now.


ihei47

Does anyone know or experienced doing internship in IT field (Security specifically but not necessarily) in Kuantan. Or at least know any company/gov agency that usually offer it. Want to survey for my internship next year Due to my father's recent health condition, it seems I can't look for place of internship further from home, means no KL/Selangor which surely have more opportunities


[deleted]

[удалено]


ihei47

Means WFH?


Konroy

Your best chance is to send your resume and cover letter to the local pejabat tanah, pejabat pendaftaran, etc. Some of my mates went to intern at a Pejabat Agama ffs. Most of the time you won't be doing IT work sadly. So you might have to propose to make a system there or something so you can log in your logbook.


ihei47

I see. I actually considering those gov agencies & departments available here too. But to make a system idk if I'm capable of that. Does troubleshooting PC or related systems, stuffs technician do will count? > at a Pejabat Agama ffs. What are their courses btw


Konroy

I think it needs to be work on the software side. Hardware you need to clarify with your supervisor. Their courses were Computer Science but it was internship during diploma during degree they interned at proper NGO companies that do software.


SmolDumpsterFire

Hey ya'll, I need to ask if anyone has any past experience dealing with this kind of situation. So for context, my parents have a bunch of Krisflyer Miles and they're letting me and my siblings to just use it up rather than letting it expire. We're looking to pre-order a Nintendo Switch and a game or two from there. The problem is, Singapore Airlines will only send the product to an address in Singapore, which my parents do have connections that can help receive it and send it to us. Thing is, customs will probably hold it and make us pay tax for it (the total value would be somewhere around S$700) when it gets sent in right? Anyone know how much is the tax rate? I think our other option is either waiting for someone to actually hand deliver it when they visit next or just not buy it and get something else lol.


EliCho90

You could try to send it as used. Anything less than 500 including freight is non taxable If kena tax and you don't agree. Item will be destroyed or send back at cost to sender

Felt like watching a Malaysian movie last night and randomly stumbled across Daulat. Was honestly kinda surprised that it wasn’t banned since it was easy to match a few characters to some politicians irl. Anyone have any other recs of local movies to check out?


SenatorAce

Just saw the trailer, looks damn promising. The only gripe I have with movie is I just can't bring myself to believe that our politician can speak english that fluently.

Lmao, there’s one scene where this one politician went, “Boleh cakap bahasa melayu tak?”

hatstraw27

Guy do we need to fill up any "PTPTN penangguhan bayaran balik" form for diploma level, when I am already applying for second loan for continuing to my degree ?? Also, will the interests accumulate while I'm studying degree ? Shit, I should have taken accounting as extra class in form 4, all this financial stuff is making my head hurt.


The_XiangJiao

I've done this before. You need to have a letter from your university faculty stating that you are currently a student there and is set to graduate at a specific date. I think the interest still accumulates judging from my current PTPTN debt that I checked about a month back. Nevertheless, you shouldn't worry about it as their interest rate is actually really low. My initial PTPTN debt back in 2016 was RM15.7k+ and it only rose to around RM16.3k this year. Hope this helps and good luck on your studies.


hatstraw27

This is definitely helpful, thanks for your help dude. I guess this have to wait until I finished my uni e-registrations.


Hyperblitzing

You might need to check with PTPTN for the latest sop but they should defer it because you continue your study. They need your offer letter if I remember correctly.


joshua-chong

Question, does private universities have programs like Askar Wataniah? If not, are you allowed to join them outside of Uni and ask for exemption for the 30 days of training?


aWitchonthisEarth

Question, in condo's/apartments there are some lots where it's empty or the tenant doesn't have a car, why can't they give the second car owners, that slot to rent? The place I live, allocates only 1 parking per unit. One inconsiderate donkey, has 6 cars parked in. When the guard told him this is not allowed, a max of 2 cars (they have to park by the side, only IF there is space. No space- park outside!). He just bribed the guard into leaving him alone 🤷‍♀️. Another donkey has 3 cars and to avoid detection, he parks 2 cars in my bloc. So it looks like he only has 1 car, in his allocated lot. Essentially, blocking my car park here. Emailed management, to which they told him to move and he has the audacity to argue back! Of course, I was quietly watching from window inconspicuously. Final warning...if he wants his precious Protonx50 intact...


TimeElise

Usually the empty car park slots are rent-able. My condo allows renting. Then again u know lah.... some people "no money" to pay for parking but got money for If he has 9000 cars, then at least PAY for that 8999 parkings dammit.


aWitchonthisEarth

Yes! Here too, one guy doesn't even stay here but he rents a lot, then walks over to his office in Bangsaria. Rather, than illegally parking on the pavement/roadside. Exactly, all luxury cars. Kedekut betul, pay for that extra slots. Best part, he memang ada duit, top to toe Gucci. The selfishness of these people at times, honestly - me, me, me attitude


TimeElise

I hate parking at Damansara Uptown because of all the double and triple parking even though the parking is only RM1 at Starling Mall. Ish ish ish...


aWitchonthisEarth

RM 1! Is a steal in main city centers. That also cannot pay. Here too, they will double park, park on the pavement! to eat at La juceria, go the boutique gym which cost RM 450/ month the cheapest. Yet the basement parking RM 2 cannot pay! Kete semua import punye...tapi kesian tak mampu bayar parking.


TimeElise

Even Sunway Nexis also is RM1 to park inside but nopeeeeee they double park and then the damn road gets so jam


aWitchonthisEarth

Last time the reason a lot gave was, mall parking too expensive how to tahan, so we park outside. Now even at RM 1?! What does it say- own Malaysian attitude! Even if got free parking 50 meter away, they will still road side park because 20 meter away only.


5p3aK

More about the need to walk that most Malaysians dislike


TimeElise

That's why we're the fattest country in S.E Asia :v


aWitchonthisEarth

As one neighbour said, jogging 5 km can, threadmill in the gym can, but walk 200 meter to shop cannot


Hyperblitzing

Because you payed for the parking space, most people entitled to one parking space and usually had to pay for the second one. And those old apartments and condominiums usually built without taking account Malaysian owning more than 1 car.


aWitchonthisEarth

Yup this is a old place, 30+ years back. But they do allow second car in with the condition, there is parking at the side. But come on, 3 cars and 6 cars is really being inconsiderate, blocking us who uses just 2 allocated lot. They were owners, who were selling their car park for RM 100/month. All kete mewah, am sure they can afford to pay for that extra lot.


Mr69Niceee

I think more and more condos enforcing parking lot as clamping zone if illegal parking.


aWitchonthisEarth

Zero clamping here. With guards who don't give too hoots about checking or can be bribed. We were not allowed to have guest over, during MCO. 2 neighbours had fortnightly parties, up to 10 people and they will pack food for the guards every week to buy their silence. The best part, we had a guard that will enforce all of the rules. And a few residents complained he is too strict and got him changed *face palm*


25thskye

Hey guys, just wondering. Any suggestions for halal (chicken) char siew? I want to try a few different ones, but I’ve only been able to find some from The Chicken Rice Shop, and it was pretty disappointing.


VC4FUN

I think you can just buy the char siu sauce. I don't know if it is halal. There is wine, but I know there is no animal fat in it. Marinate with chicken for few hours then bake it. The rice is the difficult part. Hard to prepare but ingredient is so little. Still the easiest recipe in my book. Once you know how to do it, you'll get fat like me.


25thskye

Haha nah, I’ve got a pretty good homemade chicken char siew recipe already, but I wanna try some restaurant ones to compare. The only one I could find at TCRS was honestly really bad. As for rice, it’s pretty easy to make it halal imo. Ginger, garlic, chicken stock and chicken fat will make your rice super flavourful and chickeny.


bleepkins04

Hi everyone, I’m moving to Malaysia soon and have to do quarantine but my accommodation won’t have any internet. Are there any options to buy a SIM or rent pocket wifi in KLIA at the moment? I’m coming in on Singapore Air so KLIA2 I think? Is anything open?


TimeElise

There should be a few, u can try to google something like "rent wifi at KLIA" and message some services to see if they're open. I saw [this](https://www.samuraiwifi.com.my/) but not sure if it's still available or not.


malaysianzombie

i find it hilarious people complain that this place is an echo chamber.. then the comments proceed to become the echo chamber. so i guess.. they're not wrong?


Hijau_Ilmam

Is it wrong I get angry bc of this so easily aand I'm only 14? Im gonna get downvote but hell do I care care about my karma anyways


malaysianzombie

eh.. you get angry or don't? either ways don't sweat it. at 14 you're better off learning about how the world works and honing practical skills that will put you in a league above people your age. and when you hit 20, you won't have the time to be bothered about silly comments on a website because you'll be starting your business or building cool things that'll make you your first million by 30. go make for a better life for yourself :)


pmarkandu

You aren't angry because you haven't started paying taxes, haven't started to look for good and well paying jobs (that are short in supply), haven't started to buy any assets and live the remaining 60+ years of your life. Just to give you some perspective.


squirrel_with_a_nut

Can never please these people la Type in English - act atas, patronising Discussion - palataoism Criticize racist policies - only attack one race Next time you see something racial and political like the 51% bumi shares policy just ignore it and post a picture of your nasi lemak breakfast with the caption "Good morning Malaysia.", last thing you want is to be labelled an upper-middle class racist snob for participating in a leftist echo chamber.


fanfanye

When someone complains the place is xxxx, and yyyy is isolated Do you think xxxx defenders will come out lol? No, yyyy will be there whining Simple logics


aWitchonthisEarth

Name me one place, that is not an echo chamber till date. All the same, because it's the users who use it. Just like pro-togey and anti togey.

/u/LeafSamurai why is my ISP’s speed looks faster on [Ookla](https://i.imgur.com/rGcB97Q.jpg) but significantly slower on [OpenSignal](https://i.imgur.com/4koH8CQ.jpg)? which one is accurate?


LeafSamurai

The speed test varies from the server that was selected for the test. Based on your screenshot, I suspect that the Ookla used a server that is in Malaysia itself or nearby to Malaysia and OpenSignal used a US server, which would explain the disparity in speed. Try to run the speed test again on OpenSignal.


PlsMakeSense

Ookla pings the server nearest to your GPS location. Which is kinda misleading since almost none of the content we consume are located in Malaysia.


jstom_21

You could try testing on a Singapore server, since most major websites use a content delivery network (CDN) and the nearest for many of them are in Singapore


younghwc

How do you wash a new water bottle? With dishwashing soap and water only?


emilysicily

I like to soak new bottles overnight in soapy warm water. Water bottles are stored with their covers on though, so realistically there shouldn't be too much dust inside. Just a simple wash with dishwashing soap and water should be sufficient!


younghwc

soak the whole bottle? or filled with warm water?


emilysicily

filled! all the way to the top of the mouthpiece.


jamescaleb

I'd also recommend some hot water (if it's a material that can handle it). Buang bau kedai 😂

Quick question. Is jogging allowed for non vaccinated in phase 2?


eisfer_rysen

Your neighborhood and most parks are fine. Some parks check for vaccination though.


psychedelic_beetle

I'm supposed to be tagged as fully vaccinated today 2 weeks after my second dose. It's still partially vaccinated in my Mysejahtera, any ideas who I should contact?


whatdoidonow37

Wait until tomorrow, if it hasn't updated yet there is an option in the helpdesk for this. You need to send them a picture of your vaccination card for them to manually update the system. Mine took nearly a month to update to fully vaccinated status.


thatforeveralonedude

Did you refresh status? Otherwise, if today is the 14th day, your certificate will only turn yellow after midnight (15th day). This was my case it seems.

I finally pass my certification exam after 3 months of studying. In fact, I finished studying it during June but testing centers are not open during lockdown and I'm not confident enough.

Green_Lemontea

Thank you!


LeafSamurai

Was it CCNA? Congrats! Time to move on to the CCNP now :)


Green_Lemontea

Yup! I'm still torn between CCNP or AWS though...


LeafSamurai

It actually depends on your interest and future career goals. I did my CCNA in late 2019, and I'm currently working on the Huawei equivalent for the professional level, because my job requires me to handle mostly Huawei devices rather than Cisco. I will probably do the CCNP Ent or CCNP Sec to renew the CCNA when the time comes for renewal in 2 years.


Green_Lemontea

Nice! I'll Google more on the pros and cons for each certs before taking. My friend who has pass CCNP Ent told me it's a lot harder than CCNA.


LeafSamurai

It is not a lot harder than CCNA. I think ENCOR is not that bad as there are a lot of crossovers from the old CCNA that I did, but ENARSI is very tough as you will need to be very familiar with the different routing protocols.


N13P4N

Thoughts on renting a 400-500ish sqft 1BR/studio in Penang island? In terms of price compared to renting a flat / flat room.


aWitchonthisEarth

Depends on your needs. If you are single, don't cook at all, work from an office, no pets. A room is enough. But if you are older, need privacy, need space, have a pet, cook occasionally to moderate, work from home, best get your own place exclusively.


konigsjagdpanther

Studio IS your own place exclusively. 400-500 sq ft is a tad small, but the slightly larger ones (550-600) is more than enough for one person even with a small pet. Some studios also have multiple rooms with living room completely separate from the bed room and the toilet.


N13P4N

I'm definitely more of the latter type. Also trying to get a better understanding of the local rental prices and market. I'm guessing more people would prefer to rent a larger apartment/flat of about 700sqft and above and then sublet or just flat share in general. A newer (built in the last decade or at least well kept) apartment seems to cost 800-1.3k to rent, depends on furnishing. I've found quite a few small and fully furnished studios like I described that cost about 1.2-1.4k to rent, doesn't seem too bad right?


aWitchonthisEarth

Not only the price point. Factor in what is close to you too; amenities that you frequent, food, distance to your hometown or office. For instance, I stayed in a bigger place but it was in a quiet area and you need a car to everywhere. Which was more comfortable for my cat and exercising.1110sqf I shifted for the same rent, to a 650sqf. Which was closer to all the amenities, highway to hometown just 5 mins drive to it, can walk to the shops too, close to all the activities that I do. It saved me much more $. Penang defo expensive. But that price is comfortable. 3 years back when I wanted to move to Penang, most rentals were all 2k -3k. One agent just hung up on me, when i asked for below 2k, lol

Hey man, just take your time and understand your new company and colleagues. If there’s a lot of free time (aka nothing is being assigned to you yet), you can study the products and services being offered. You could also make a table of competitors and what they’ve done right (or wrong) online like social media, website, e-commerce sites etc.

Most other people also don't know what they are doing either. Even those that do can sometimes feel like they don't - known as imposter syndrome. Just take note of whatever you are told/instructed and ASK QUESTIONS. Generally people like helping other people, it makes them feel nice. Plus, they literally can't expect you to know everything from day one so don't be too hard on yourself.

Is there no onboarding session or no one around to show you the ropes?


MrTammy

I only went to the office to take the laptop, id card, and self test kit. Only supposed to go to office tomorrow, doing the checklist for new hire rn but I feel so overwhelmed. Will be better tomorrow hopefully.


berakthefourthwall

*pat pat* Relax, everyone needs some time to get their bearings in a new environment. No one expects you to know everything on your first day! :)

Forgot to wear a mask while collecting a package, haven't been vaxxed yet...fuck I'm scared

COVID self test kit is only MYR19.90 max. I always keep one with me just in case.

Well, it looks like my parents decided to palm off a perfectly functioning CRT monitor to the recycling people without consulting me. It's both extremely annoying and bemusing that they can't get rid of all the old printers though.

They announced that the BPR fasa 3 will be deposited into our bank starting tomorrow. Does this mean the previous bpr receivers will receive the money as well? Or is it only for the new application?


mynameismarchie

I think its for rayuan and household only. Category single tak dapat dah


Total-Regret-1177

Ok sedih jap. Single pun dah tak ada duit dah :( thanks btw


mynameismarchie

Highfive bro


frs-1122

is anyone else seeking mental health help from Hospital Shah Alam? would like to ask if they're still doing telehealth appointments? I ask this because telehealth appts have been my current source of support since I'm back at my hometown and I don't see myself going back to Selangor in the foreseeable future, and I had a telehealth consultation on my last appointment date. not to mention I'm seeking help privately without my parents knowing so I'm currently in a bit of a pickle, and I can't financially support myself if I were to go for private clinics. My next appointment is tomorrow...


TimeElise

Sigh. Wasted my time. Saw on the bank's website that they are now opened till 4pm so I went at 2pm. Turns out they're only opened until 1.30pm and after that it's only opened for card replacements only. F\*#@$&


immunedata

Maybank in KLCC only open til 3pm still. Such an easy life for them.

Oh cool, for reasons Amigos Para Sempre is a good music and motivation to vibe to while studying. Now switching to plan S after getting new Intel for studying tips and analysis (thanks a lot to someone of high regard). Ah well, what a great boost in such situations, anyway I shall resume studying and do my best for that!


weecious

First day back to work for my rotation, and what can go wrong did go wrong. I'm exhausted already.


HOBoStew139

Sorry to hear about that. You did your best already and what you can. Here's a virtual hug, and do get lots of rests after this ends!


weecious

Thanks Hob. You're the sweetest.


foxhighonsugar

*pat pat* bb Leg massage to take off that exhaustion.


weecious

Wearing skirt today, not so convenient. Tomorrow it is.

Why do developers keep on building houses that most cannot afford?


Fun_Region446

I have yet to see something in this planet that people can’t buy even if they have the money and most people with money can buy everything you can think of.


_Dorian_Gray_

To manage shareholder's expectations. Without new projects, there would be no potential revenue, and that will look bad on the annual profit and loss statement.


malaysianlah

means there are people who can afford them :P they're in the business of making money.


mynameismarchie

I dont know man in my area banglo dalam 1m + and condo 500k. Dh dua tahun nampak empty and always for sale at propertyguru


5p3aK

1m for bungalow seems cheap


mynameismarchie

Yeah I wasnt being specific.


malaysianlah

means they have owner but no seller, or still developer selling.


mynameismarchie

Ouh that. Probably why I see banyak yg kene lelong

Any photoshop sifu here ? Need some help on refining edge selection for a gem. My gem after selecting, and changing to another background color, the edges all around looks like it's been bitten and rough, need some help to fix this.


teitoklein_

You can use polygonal lasso tool to draw the edge then delete the background. Object selection or magic wand tool always make the edge fuzzy


KarakuriBoy

Feathering


Sotsotzaii

Is there a technique for this so I can youtube it ?


tansan33

use 'content aware fill' in photoshop for better selection\~

recalling financial talk with my ex. Me: I have 0 credit card debt with tons of cashback and points, love it! Her: Me too. But I do have education debt. Me: How much? Her: er.... around 100k usd. Me: Hmm.... but you are quitting your job and want to be a housewife?


AnneKyuuzaki

Is that the reason why she's your ex


Fun_Region446

Why the hell would she get an education degree if she’s not making full use of it? By being a housewife pulak.


metadataisnotreal

choice?


Fun_Region446

I’ll go to the bank tomorrow to get a personal loan of 100 grand and then keep them in my bank account. Now I have a debt.
