Super cheap dental care in Malaysia

Now, one of good things about Malaysia is that you are still able to get really cheap dental care however the only challenge is that everyone wants it therefore the wait time is a bit longer.

One Govt Dental Clinics nearby my place is Klinik Kelana Jaya which I visited just recently. After a quick registration of RM1 ( $0.25 ) you then need to wait for your turn to see the dentist .

Now … Mondays – Thursdays are for Adults and Fridays are special for kids to go and do their checkups.

The nurses and registration was pretty fast as we were there very early like 7:30 in the morning. Even at that time, there were a few people already waiting to visit the dentists.

SO ! The wait !

It took about 1hour 30 minutes to get to our turn. Even though there were about 3 dentists in 3 different rooms it still took awhile to get to us. And we were number 10 in line.

Finally we managed to get in and the dentists was really nice and friendly. They were stressed out with sooo many patients but they still manage to keep a smile and talk calmly.

Looks like their day was going to be a long one and we were done within 20 mins with the dentist.

Ok .. thats my total cost for going to this dentist. a total of RM2 !! Thats about $0.50 … however the only set back was the time it took which was a total of about 2 hours which is mostly just waiting and waiting.

So if you are planning to go and get your dentals done however have a really tight budget , I do suggest checking out the govt dental clinics… their equipment may be slightly more dated however they can get the job done just as well.

Cheers and have a brilliant weekend !

Another day .. attended Emanate, Music on the blockchain event

Got invited to an interesting event today where Emanate representation @djlethalskillz presented. Its a very interesting project as its like Spotify however its powered by the EOS blockchain.

In DJ Lethal Skillz explaination, there is a smart contract which rewards the author of the music every six seconds of play time. So as you stream the music, the author / singer / songwriter gets paid every 6 seconds. Unlike Spotify .. where the artist gets paid at the end of the song.

From the dashboard, you are able to see how much this song has actually got paid to the artist

You can see that DJ Lethal Skillz already got paid a total of $4.81 for the song Ocean Ride. This would just continue to accumulate and the value of that is being paid in EMX token which is like the Stable coins of Emanate.

You are also able to stake Emanate by buying EMT tokens thru the EOS markets like NewDex . What you get a lil bonus from a growth pool.

So this is one of the more interesting projects on the blockchain which I’ve seen and it has great potential. When asked how is Copywrite protected for musicians, it seems that every genre has its own curators and when new artists signs up, they are manually checked and verified before being able to upload their music.

DJ Lethalskillz is one of the curators for HipHop and he would be one of the many curators out there.

Do check out this site, as I do think its pretty cool … give back artists what they deserved and not be cheated and scammed by production houses.

Want to eat healthy ? Goto Vietnam !

It seems like everywhere I go in Vietnam, the food is just amazing and really really healthy. All dishes comes with a lot of greens.

This was fish noodles soup. The soup was just really tasty and you won’t see any oil in it. Unlike some of the place you eat in Malaysia.

And what’s great… It only cost like 35k VND.. Which is about $1.5 for a whole meal. That includes a bowl of yummy noodle fish soup and a side dish of vegetables and Vietnamese tea.

Great food is almost everywhere including the shopping malls.

This famous dish called Bun Cha.. Its sticky noodles with BBQ Pork and sauce.. Also with loads of vegetables cost me about $3.5 and that was for dinner.

Apparently you can get fresh vegetables at the markets everyday and there is street smack in the middle of the city just selling it. So that’s why every other dish you get in Vietnam is just filled with greens.

For me, after a few days in Vietnam, you’ll get so used to it that once you go back to Malaysia, you feel like something in your meal is missing. As the vegetables you get don’t seem as fresh as what you get there.

So if you want to eat healthy and cant seem to do it consistently enough.. Move to Vietnam 😂😂😂

Cheers and have a great day !

STEEMFEST – The actual road to steemfest

Steemfest is just around the corner and for me, unlike previous years where loads of budgeting and planning was needed to get to Steemfest as it was really far away from the city of Kuala Lumpur, this year …. I’m really relaxed as going to Bangkok is only a 2hour 20 minutes flight.

At least this year I do not need to fly and have stop overs and rush for interconnecting flights …. WHAT A RELIEF !!!! For those coming from far and away ….. I TOTALLY UNDERSTAND what you will be going thru. But I’m sure it would be an amazing journey for most people.

Flying in from Asia, one of the most popular websites which is used to get the best flights would be this site. www.skyscanner.com

Previous years … it cost me about 10 times more just flight alone compared to this year where is only about RM400 (about USD95) average in flights. This would be a great opportunity for Steemians in the region to come over to Steemfest and experience it for the first time ever in Asia !

And not only the flights however the accommodation can range from budget to really high end, I normally use Booking.com as my prefered choice of selecting a hotel or quickly browse thru AirBnB.

So to sum it up … my road to steemfest this year is a much shorter one, however, the challenges of settling affairs at home ( real-life stuff ) needs to be settled before I can go off on a trip which takes about 5 days.

Why should You attend?

To meet all the active crazy Steemians of course

I must say that after heading over to Steemfest 2 and Steemfest 3, you do tend to get involved more in projects as you can see how passionate these people are about the Steem Blockchain. You will want to have a great time for sure and you WILL want to get more involved in projects and be a part of growing it.

I’m excited to meet EVERYONE ! I’m sure @arcange has something up his sleeves again this year to get everyone to engage with one another thru the Steemfest app. I wonder wonder wonder what its going to be this year.

SO see you all at Steemfest and if you are still undecided to go … I’m going to say “This is an event you will NOT regret going to !“. I shall see you at STEEMFEST 4 !
