One recently study on Kuala Lumpur Tap Water in 2007 has shown that most populated areas in Kuala Lumpur are soft water.

The Story This morning I received a call from AEON transaction department via 03-27199999 which is the official Aeon Credit Service Number. The customer service agent, Joanne Lee requested me to verified a RM 4999 transaction from KLIA Machines. Being a tech-guy myself I know its a MAC Book Air 13' with 1.6GHz Processor 256 GB Storage. Of course I denied that transaction as it didn't happen.
 She acted surprise and double check the card info with me. She informed me that the card (4563-0602-2236-4579) was registered in AEON Ipoh Station 18 on 04-July-2016 using my name, IC and a Ipoh Jaya address.

Malaysia Income Tax Query

*Telah melupuskan syer dalam syarikat harta tanah dan/atau harta tanah di bawah Akta Cukai Keuntungan Harta Tanah 1976 YATIDAKTelah melaporkan pelupusan tersebut kepada LHDNM? YATIDAK for 2016 Income Tax the wording changed to  "Melupuskan aset di bawah Akta Cukai Keuntungan Harta Tanah 1976 "
Basically this means, If you have sold your house in 2015 from January to December then you will need to declare as YES (YA). If you have declared YES(YA), have you reported to LHDNM? If you have done so then select YES(YA) or else NO(TIDAK).  I believe this allow the tax office to determine whether they need to locate you to collect the RPGT fees for last year. For more detail you can refer to Pindaan Peruntukan ACKHT 1976 Perintah Cukai Keuntungan Harta Tanah (Pengecualian) (No.2) 2009 [P.U. (A) 486]

For those didn't perform house selling transaction last year, simply select NO (TIDAK) and you are all good.

How to Reset Xiao Mi Power Bank

Image
According to Mi official website,


10400mAh should charge within 12 hours for a standard 1A charger. I have a 10400 Mi Power Bank but it take >24 hours to charge.

I contacted Xiao Mi Support and indeed this is not normal. They suggested to Reboot the power bank. To do that:


Press the Power Button for more than 15 secs.  After that drain the power bank and charge again. The power bank should fully charge about 12 hours or in some case 13 hours is fine. 
The support person also suggested if the unit still behaves the same, we should bring it to the nearest service center for checking. http://www.mi.com/my/service/repair/
