Happy Valentine’s day STEEMIANS

So its that time of year once more where florists all around the world charges up to ten folds on flowers and sales of chocolates soars and restaurants just cash in promising the most romantic dinner with your loved one.

For me …. its just a simple date with my ex-girlfriend/partner for life/wife . Treasuring every moment with this amazing woman is truly something which I value.

Happy Valentine’s Day @ireenchew .. xoxo

and for all you steemians out there … may you be able to share it with your loved one. Happy Valentine’s day to you !

Changes in Penang STEEM Bootcamp Schedule

Due to some unforeseen circumstances, we have to move our schedule of our Penang Bootcamp Sharing to either 1st week or 2nd week of March. This is due to space availability and also to coincide with TheBlockSignal ‘s event plans who is our partners and organizers there

Even though the dates has moved, we are still very positive about the event there and are excited about trying to get a larger crowd.

Other updates in Malaysia

We are now finalizing more workshops and planning in Kota Kinabalu to grow more content creators in the community in Borneo. We are moving our plans forward in Borneo to start running workshops to drive the growth of STEEM adoption here and also to work out a sustainability model for new users.

When will this happen ?

Our workshops will begin by May 2019 and we are now currently planning for space and also facilities. It surely is going to be a really exciting year for Steem in Malaysia !

Won’t be able to reveal much as a lot of planning is still in the works however rest assure that it will happen.

A impromptu meetup with steemians

It was a very last minute decision to hop on a flight and head back to Kota Kinabalu, Sabah as there was something which I had to do

And as always I took the opportunity to meetup with all steemians who was around town and had the time. Being all part of STEEMXP community and also TEAMMALAYSIA , we had a breif discussion as to the current markets and also direction of growing STEEM adoption in Malaysia.

its the Chinese New Year celebrations here too

Looking at 2019, it is going to be a lot of speculations and fud in the crypto space. I do have confidence in the blockchain technology and its surely going to strive into something greater then what it is known for today.

We will however always push for growth in this region with a few more events being line up throughout the year, we have already begun planning workshops and more talks around the STEEM ecosystem. With more and more amazing DAPPS being developed by independent developers, STEEM will surely be one of the strongest blockchain & community around.

Don’t forget our next event is just 2 weeks away in Penang and once everyone is back to work after the Chinese New Year holidays we can push and plan for more confirmed events.

Would love for you to support our campaign on fundition for running all these offline events and promoting adoption of STEEM

Cheap and great wordpress hosting with Siteground

Are you already using wordpress and find that sometimes your hosting is just slow or ever got hacked before ?

For the longest time I can remember I’ve been using SITEGROUND and it seems to be the best option for wordpress hosting especially in South East Asia.

Web Hosting

Its cheap and really really good. The signup is really simple and its plans are very affordable.

From $3.95 a month its a really good deal.

For me since I have about 20 over different domains for me and a few of my clients, I use the GoGeek plans and its more then sufficient to host all your sites.

The value added is that all sites comes with free SSL therefore you are able to just turn on SSL ( https:// ) for free.

You are able to literally subscribe, then get wordpress hosting up and running within minutes. If you do need help, do give me a ping. Start using STEEMPRESS plugins in your wordpress site straight away and keep your blogs personal !

Its all red in Malaysia – Happy Chinese New Year

Going around the shopping malls in Malaysia past few weeks , you’ll see a very common sight. Almost everywhere is splashed with RED ! If that is your favourite color then your eyes will be feasting in all the variants of RED.

Gong Xi Fa Chai

Why its splashed with RED is purely because Chinese New Year is just a few days away and RED symbols prosperity.

Even all the hampers are all RED. A lot of merchants take this time to take advantage of the festivities and packing up goodies bundling it in very nice hampers

cny hampers

Well , with all the distractions and shopping going on, we must always remember that celebrating CNY is mostly about being with the family and welcome the new year with prosperity and luck for everyone.

Gong Xi Fa Cai in advance to all !

Tips of ordering food at the mamak

The Mamak is a typical Malaysian restaurant where you can get extremely yummy food for the cheapest price. But there are a few tips which I learned over the years to get real value for money.

Ordering drinks

Unlike Starbucks, where you get 3 different types of sizes and have to pay a lot more, the Mamak offers either standard cup size or the super jumbo size. I found out that there is another size if you really want to get a good deal. You call it the take away but have it in a bowl. Example… Teh O Ais. Or ice tea…just order Teh Ais Bungkus Mangkuk Ikat Tepi.

And you’ll end up like the picture above. Total price is about rm1.70 or rm2. Compared to the standard cup… You only get half the size and a difference of 40 cents at max.

Roti telur

Ordering Food

When ordering roti ! Ask for Roti Telur or whatever roti.. But to get it fresh and crispy… Ask them for “garing” . You will then get a nice crispy roti telur.

I normally like freshly made and freshly cook so I always ask them to make it with onions as by asking that, they have to make a new one because its not the standard onces they make in bulk.

So year just my lil tips of going to the Mamak… What about you ? Any interesting value for Money food tips to share.?
