Blessed are the Diligent

It is so easy to nap and to rest and relax doing nothing. But this will not bring you profit or income. To earn online, you have to be very determined working consistently all the time. Yes, sometimes we have our moods - not to work too hard and take the easy way out by napping at home. But to consider our retirement, we have to make as much as we can while we are healthy and capable before disability strikes in old age and before sickness sets in. Like the saying goes, 'Make Hay while the Sun Shines' and we should grab every opportunity that comes along our way.

Virtual Assistant

Besides being an Information Technology executive, I also freelance as a virtual assistant in my home office. Just last week, I was paid USD 250 at USD 10 per hour for work from an Australian engineer who is also a businessman. I was the only person he contacted by internet and he offered me work for 25 hours block. The job was not too difficult and within my capabilities. He paid a 50% deposit payment upon confirmation and the balance upon completion of work. It was all done in a professional manner and I updated him weekly on the job nature and hours worked for the 7 days. He paid me via paypal and it was instant because he happen to be online when I completed the work and promptly paid me the balance. I love working in my humble home office!

Back from Langkawi

I came back from Langkawi 2 days ago and stayed at Bayview Hotel in Kuah for $255 per nite. For seaview, the price is $285 but there is not much difference between seaview and hill view. In fact, I prefer hill view and you get to see unblocked view of atap roofs, much greenery of the hills nearby and plenty of trees because Langkawi is still very much undeverloped and deliberately planned to be so to retain its natural beauty. I was there for business and after meeting up with the client, I bought cashew nuts, almonds coated with white chocolate, Australian nougats and orange flavoured Lindt chocolate flakes. I also bought a pair of Puma pump shoes for $159 from Al Ikhsan which specialises in selling sports products. My colleague bought 8 futsal balls for over $300 to be given as free gifts to our other client in Kedah.

Offered Virtual Assistance Work

Just 2 days ago, I was paid 50% for the virtual assistance work to be rendered at only USD10 per hour for 25 hours lump sum. That totals up to be USD125 which is pretty good if you consider I love to nap around in my free time. So, now I will be occupied doing productive work for money. I was contacted directly by an engineer from Australia to check out and compare the flight brokers for their flight prices given a certain date to travel and return from Perth to Kuala Lumpur and back, Perth to Singapore and back, Melbourne to Auckland and back. Apparently this guy loves to travel and is considering the best and economical place to stay for a while.

Life is Good

Life is precious and I cannot fathom why some confused people would take their own lives and commit suicide. Death is not the end of everything. If you have money problems, then consult your close family members to see if they can bail you out and loan you the cash to tide over. Otherwise, you should stop gambling immediately and learn to kick the habit. Other woes may be relationship problems. Come on, there are 6 billion people on this earth and if your spouse decides to leave you, there will always be another one. It is not the end of the world. Think rationally and life will be good for you.

Earning Money and Keeping It

It is not how much you earn but rather how much you keep that matters. A person may be earning $5,000 per month but saving only $100 each time compared to another person who earns $3,000 and saving $1,000 every month! So, don't splurge all that you earn on unnecessary stuffs but do try to save up as much as you can for your retirement down the road. This is to ensure that you retirement years are golden and not woeful with hardly enough to feed yourself or pay for medical bills.

So, it takes a lot of delayed gratification will power to save up and enjoy later and not think of instant gratification like purchasing things on impulse. I used to buy and go shopping every week and purchase things that I don't really need and have to live from pay check to pay check every month. There is not a single savings each month and my bank account may go to single digit at the end of the month. This was when I was working in Singapore, splurging on things that I could barely afford to keep up with the Joneses. Since coming back to Penang, I have saved up quite substantially and no longer squander my money on unnecessary stuffs anymore.

I love to work from my home office

I just finished my lunch of kerabu bee hoon and a large curry puff, brought back by my youngest sister from Church. This is free lunch for the family. Now is back to blogging time. You might like to know that I work from my home office here in my pajamas. It is quite easy for me since I deal with the computer but it is not easy for my boss who has to deal with so many people - from disgruntled clients to those who default on payment. I sincerely hope that my boss will eventually get all his payment for the work rendered so that the company can continue its business and not wind up. We have more than 20 workers to consider and make payment often as they are paid on daily wages scheme. My boss has been very understanding with me and I hope that the small company will continue to get continuous projects for the rest of the year. Now is the second half of 2011 and the projects are much less compared to 2010. I know this because I keep a record in MS Excel file.

Multiple Sources of Income

With the rising inflation and cost of living, you need to have multiple sources of income. At the moment, I am gainfully employed to work in a home office for a friend in his sports building business. I also earn by selling Herbalife online via my blogs which does the marketing. I also invest in government bonds to earn some interests at 5% per annum and also from my Fixed Deposits at 3% per annum. On top of that, I also earn some revenue from my several blogs through Adsense, Nuffnang and reviews. As a freelancer on a part time basis, I write articles for cash whenever I am in the mood for it. Therefore, you can say that I have multiple sources of income from my main job and also moonlighting work.

There are Endless Opportunities on the Internet

Now with the wired world, the opportunities are endless! You can learn graphic design from the internet and create magic to your blogs, web sites, or banners. You can have them animated too using Macromedia Flash which will save your file as .swf as the final product. You can also learn interior design and learn how to decorate your home to make it as cozy as possible with a feel good factor, matching your furniture with the lighting and room decorations. You can also meet potential clients for your business like freelance web designing, article writing, etc. The opportunities are just endless as long as you spend some time to do self study via the internet during your free hours. As a student, you should learn as much as possible in the shortest time.

Going to Johor Bahru in a short while

Now I am waiting for the air con servicemen to come and repair the air con in the apartment in USJ 14 of Goodyear Court 9 in Subang Jaya. After that we plan to visit Mont Kiara for one of the condominiums and then head to Johor Bahru after that to stay over night for business. I hope the car won't break down along the way and that the trip will be successful and fruitful. Nowadays I hardly write anymore articles that pay too little for so much work in my moonlighting venture at my home office. With the extra time that I have, I use it to read magazines and also surf other web sites if there is no more company work. Life is so good to me and I thank my Heavenly Father for such blessings.

It is all about the earnings

Earnings in this blog is not much. After checking on Monitize, I realized that I have been blogging blindly without checking on the traffic. I guess I did not get high paying ads on my Adsense here and there are very few visitors! This is one of my several blogs and I have to allocate time to blog more regularly. Regularly also means more personal information is displayed for the www audience and that can also include your ex-boss stalking on your blogs! Which is why I am not too motivated to blog recently after discovering that my blogs are stalked by an ex-boss that's always late for work and at the same time tries to make me look bad to cover up her many faults!

Working from Home is Sweet

Working from home is certainly sweet for me. It is a very good deal with my boss. And I have been doing this since February 2004. I save a lot on petrol, cosmetics and working clothes. And more importantly, time. No more waiting in snarling traffic jams just to commute to work and back. Although the traffic jams are not as bad as those in Kuala Lumpur, nevertheless, Penang is catching up. There are more cars on the roads each day causing massive waiting time to travel from one place to another. But KL also has its advantages, such as shopping - there are more choices and a wide selection of products with affordable prices compared to those in Penang. I don't mind going to KL once in a while during business trips.

Just Came Back from Kuala Lumpur

I just came back from Kuala Lumpur for a business trip. Also went to Pan Pacific Hotel KLIA to meet up with a supplier from New Zealand and to collect souvenirs and samples from him. I also took the opportunity to stay at Mandarin Oriental Hotel beside KLCC and attended a Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra (MPO) at Petronas Twin Towers. I would have enjoyed the trip more if not for my nagging cough that has been dragging on for 4 months now! Now I am on medication and anti-biotics after visiting the doctor at a medical centre in KL. I have to rest at home and let my cough heal first before going to KL again. Just hope and pray that I will heal soon and be healthy again.

Mobile Casino

I just came back from Kuantan and took a domestic flight known as Firefly to Penang immediately checked into a hotel and login to the internet. I need to email my supplier for sports courts enquiries for a potential project. Hopefully it will come to pass. My iPhone 4 was very useful during the trip. I could check emails and send them on the go. The Grand Continental hotel in Kuantan also has wifi where I obtained a free password and id to surf the internet without any charge.

For those of you who have smart phones like HTC, Blackberry or iPhone like my case, you might like to know that you can check out mobile casino. This will safe you time from travelling back and forth to a real casino to gamble in the hope of making more money. There are also some mobile casino games that you can peruse before deciding on your favorite game.

Come to think of it, I might just check out iphone casino for the fun of it and there are so many free and paid apps to download for my Apple iPhone 4. We need to keep in touch with technology so as not to lose out with invention and to keep ourselves technology-wise.

Going to Kuantan by Firefly

Yesterday I have paid using my credit card to book a flight for Firefly from Penang to Kuantan for 2 persons from 3rd to 5th March 2011. I will be going with my colleague for business there. Instead of driving such long distances and stressing on the car engine, we decided to take a flight which is about 1 hour and 30 minutes duration. Time for departure is at 1:10pm and arriving at 2:40pm. I have also booked Grand Continental Hotel in the heart of the city of Kuantan. I hope the deal will be successful at the start of the year of the rabbit. Since I am unmarried, I don't have any family commitment and this makes it easy to travel at last minute's notice.

Chap Goh Meh is over

This marks the end of Chinese New Year (CNY) with the celebration of Chap Goh Meh last night. It is also the Chinese valentine's day where young maidens will throw mandarin oranges into the sea in the hope to get married soon. It is the 15th night since the first day of CNY. Well, my second sister also went back to Suchou last night by plane with a transit in KL. I pity her because she fell ill soon after dining at E & O hotel for taking a whopping 15 oysters in a row. Not that the food is bad but she consumed too much just like I did and promptly feel ill after that. Our bodies can only take so much and beyong that, we will surely fall sick. Moral of the story is don't overindulge. We need to take care of our stomachs.

Successful Business Deal

I am now back to Penang from KL for a short business trip. The deal was successful and this is just the beginning of 2011. I cannot disclose too much what deal it was but suffice to say that the year of the bunny brings in prosperity. New projects are coming in as the days pass by. My company is also negotiating for a place to rent and to install sports courts in Penang. It will be a busy time for me and if the deal goes through, it will be a busy time for me as well sourcing for material and freelancers on the internet. All this will incur heavy capital and not everyone has that kind of amount to invest in. You also need to have the interests and patience before you can reap the profits.

One Step Closer to the Maxis Om Nom Nom Race

Maxis Om Nom Nom Race

Om Nom Nom your way through, and WIN HTC Smartphones! (Preview)

Just click on the link above to find out more. Nuffnang together with Maxis have come up with a unique race for bloggers to take part in called the Maxis Om Nom Nom Race. It is similar to the Amazing Race except that all their challenges involve food and eating!

Only 60 bloggers will be given the chance to join this competition and I want to be one of those 60 contestants.

I would definitely appreciate it if I am given the opportunity to participate in this competition because I really do love food - who doesn't? The thought of being in a race gets me excited! Therefore, I really want to be a part of the Maxis Om Nom Nom Race as it is a combination of the two things that I absolutely love. :)

Another reason would be to meet more people. It’s been awhile since I have made friends with other bloggers so this will be the perfect opportunity for me to meet up and mingle with all the other Nuffnangers. :)

The prizes are fantastic! Who wouldn’t want a trip to Hong Kong? I know I do! I was in Hong Kong once on a transit to USA in 1998. Well, for a transit, you don't get to see the places other than wait in the airport lounge for the next flight. Oh, did I forget to mention that there are also HTC Desire Zs to be won? I want one so badly! Not that I don’t have a phone of my own but I recently played around with one of these HTC babies and I fell in love. It has everything that I need in a phone and more!
