I think the this week’s book of the week is too special for me, to just put it on the side(widget, hahaha). This week I have a book which will make all of you turn to a “burger-pervert” as described by the author, Mathew Ramsey.
Mathew Ramsey is the creator of PornBurger, write the book called PornBurger: Hot Buns and Juicy Beefcakes which is all about burger. It is promised that this book will indulge your naughtiest food fantasies and satisfy your gluttony and lust.
Each every time I read this book, I will be craving for burgers. With The Umilfy and The Chronic-Kah Burger on the menu, it will surely make your stomach growl. Other recipe that I like are Birthday Sex, Croque Van Damme, The Hawaiian Five “O” Face and Bill U Murray Me?.
Lastly get weird, get wild, and leave no burger fantasy unimagined . . . or uneaten.
When I first bumped into this post, I’m really excited about it. So when I’ve finally be able to get my hands on to the Xpax Magic Sim, I’ve seen sleeping at 10 pm and wake up at 2 or 3 am to use the “Burung Hantu”. It’s not a terrible service, well the download speed average 600 kilobytes per second (KB/s), that’s all that matters.
So I’ve been using the Net25 ever since, well know you, I get free 75 minutes of calls and 75 SMSes to the same network and the most important thing is it’s the cheapest pass for 1 month. Although I never even used up all my calls and SMSes since my friends and family not really use the same network and there’s this thing called the Internet, it’s been an amazing journey.
Firstly, reload RM30 for to make sure that the line stays active for at 30 days.
Secondly, buy Net25 and f-ed up the “Burung Hantu”. Like update the computer to Windows 10, download games from PSN, update CS:GO and download torrent.
Thirdly, reload at least RM30 to continue to f-ed up the “Burung Hantu”.
Celcom recently updates it’s “Burung Hantu” policies, where it no longer have 2TB data, but a mere 10GB. I think that too many users loved to f-ed up the “Burung Hantu” or maybe there’s simply zero competition to this. This the first problem.
Another thing is, the RM25 pass is no longer available even though I’m still able to keep mine. Currently Celcom offering monthly pass from RM30, so no buffer zone for me if I reload Rm30 worth of credit.
The new economy for the new RM30 pass is, RM30 of course for the internet pass, when it come to Celcom most of my friends didn’t use Celcom, so free calls or SMSes does not really helps. So the solution is reload more than that. Oh and by the way, just so you know the one called Magic Sim is no longer available, it is replace the much superior M4gic Sim.
Below is the comparison where the latest prepaid plans stands from 4 operators like Celcom with it’s M4gic Sim, Hotlink with it’s FAST, DiGi with it’s Smart and Best Prepaid and UMobile with it’s POWER Prepaid. Click to enlarge it, and take notes of the little text below. It will probably makes you rethink what to subscribe to.
June, something: DiGi update something $#!TTY, no need to mention.
June, 13th: Celcom M4gic Sim’s Burung Hantu is now unlimited, well till July, 7th.
When I started to getting involved with Bitcoin, the price was MYR 1,012 which is around US$285 at the rate of MYR3.5 for US$1. I bought 0.049407 BTC for MYR 50, later I sell for MYR 118.51 which at that time MYR 2,032. The ROI (Return of Investment) was 137.02%, and that’s how I learned to trade.
From what I learned, trading is simply about buying and selling. So how do we know if our trading is making profit or not, the answers is easy, if the price at the time that we buy is lower than the selling price, then we are losing. If it happens the other way around, then it is making profit.
On September 30th, last week, I bought 0.072340 BTC which cost US$26.26 (MYR 118) at US$362.97 per Bitcoin just to sold it an hour for US$32.83 where 1 BTC cost at US$381. In just an hour, my ROI is 25%. The picture above shows the overall Bitcoin price from November 23th to November 30th.
The last day of September event taught me one thing about trading that is:
you only need to buy when it matters.
Since the price of Bitcoin is really volatile, I like to trade in small amount so that the risk is less. I like to keep simple, keep it Just For Fun so trading with large amount of money is never my option. By the way, it is a historic week for Bitcoin, where the trading volume reached its highest.
Trading Volume vs Price
November 25th was the busiest day for exchanges where 2.86 million worth of Bitcoin was traded and 2.76 million of Bitcoin was traded on November 29th. The price was US$349 and US$383 on the respective dates. The price is never depends on the volume traded, is what I can concluded.
There is one thing for sure, between those dates there were Thanksgiving, Black Friday and Cyber Monday, when the price soared. So I’m looking forward for Christmas and New Year.
If you never heard of Bitcoin, well the simplest way for me to say it that it’s a payment network that uses its own currency, also called Bitcoin. Bitcoin uses peer-to-peer (p2p) network which is the same as BitTorrent. As a hardcore BitTorrent user, I find that Bitcoin is just fascinating. So when I first heard about Bitcoin, what I did was I download the Bitcoin-Qt client and wait for it to sync completely with its network. Without knowing that Bitcoin-Qt is a wallet, I kept on seeding to the network. Later on I find out that it price have leaped to a ridiculous price and I find out that I actually able to get Bitcoin. And that’s how I started to get involved with Bitcoin.
I’m not writing about the History of Bitcoin because I’m pretty sure that if you google it you’ll find the history easily like how It was created and who created it. Now I’d like to write about the price compared to real currency.
The Price History
Bitcoin price isvolatile, which means that it change dramatically. At the end of the year of 2013 and the start of 2014 the Bitcoin price reached its peak at over the US$1000, which is believe due to several reasons like the closure of Silk Road, the illegal drug bazaar that initially gave the currency a bad name; the currency’s first Congressional hearing; and its rising popularity in China.
In the 2014, the price of Bitcoin continued to seek downfall. Although it did rose in the middle of the year, it continue to dropped. By the end of the year the median of the price is US$300. This is mainly due to PayPal proclamation of partnership with three major Bitcoin payment processors – BitPay, Coinbase and GoCoin and takedown by the Chinese authorities.
Between January and October this year, the price is averaging US$250. At the end of October the price reached US$326 and the start of the November the price became bullish where it reached US$450. Now, the price is trading US$350 for all major Bitcoin exchange.
Is Bitcoin a Good Investment?
Personally for me, I think that Bitcoin is never a good investment. No one actually can predict the price trends, here one article that predicts the price of Bitcoin will reached US$600 by the end of the year from Wedbush Securities, well I think it will not go for that.
For me, my investment in Bitcoin is Just For Fun, which sound just like the motto of this site. My words for those who wants to invest in Bitcoin is that get to know the trends first, feel the market and buy in small amount.
This domain was first registered on October 28th, 2012, which is now 3 years and 0.4. Ever since it was registered, I think this is the third time I change the registrar and the fourth time the hosting provider changes. There’s a quote about change that I like to share, that sound like:
“Progress is impossible without change, and those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything.”
George Bernard Shaw
In order to progress ahead, sometimes change is something that we all need.
The very first time this domain registered is with Fatcow. At that time Fatcow was offering a very heavily reduced price at 75% off of its original 1 year shared hosting plan. The plan comes with free 1 domain name for a year. Soon I realize that my blog needed to change, so I decided to change its hosting provider as well as the registrar.
A year later, after the Fatcow hosting plan expired, this blog was moved to GoDaddy. GoDaddy gives 1 year hosting as well as 1 free domain. I registered 2 domain names with GoDaddy, the first one was free with the hosting plan and the second one is this one.
After a year’s time, the hosting plan expired, so as the first domain names, I decided not to extend the hosting plan and not to register the domain name. At that point, this domain name still alive, so I change the hosting plan to a new hosting provider. A free one.
A year passed by, which is the present, I decided to change again. Now I’m using Namecheap for both hosting and domain names registrar. This hosting plan from Namecheap, which is now I’m using, lets its users to register up to three domain names. I think this hosting plan is the best that I’ve ever buy.
