Have you Sent STEEM to the wrong account ?

Well … I’m sitting here at the cafe once more having my coffee and the waiter brings the bill over to me. I paid him with my “fiat” and then I remember the time when I paid someone in Steem for a meal. This was @danielwong’s burger place called Big Hug Burger.

During the times when STEEM was above 1 USD a typical post payout would help a lot in an individual’s financial … hey it does pays the bill.

Anyway …. since 2 years ago there was no actual Steem wallet or mobile app to transfer Steem … it has to all be done manually. So after having burgers at Big Hug Burgers and wanted to pay in STEEM , I had to manually transfer the Steem over.

Instead of Transfering to the account of @danielwong … i accidently sent it to the wrong account named @daniel .

OF course, it had to be an inactive account which is just sitting down there and there is no way get that amount of STEEM back. Even after 2 years since this happen … my 4 STEEM which I sent is still there untouched.

So I googled today those who has actually sent STEEM to the wrong person … as I’m 100% certain that I’m not the only one who has mistakenly done so.

So after googling and searching .. I found this post about an account https://steemitwallet.com/@ashleigh/transfers which had transfered about $250k worth ( value at that time ) of STEEM to the wrong account called @minorityreport

Well … 137k worth of Steem is not as huge of a value now, however its still significant enough to support authors. Here was the post that lead me to this transfer. I think the owners of the account were able to connect and resolve the matter after weeks of powering down.

So what about you ? Have you sent Steem to the wrong account and have you ever gotten it back ?

Cheers and have a great day !

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 !

Happy Birthday to Mum

Its been a while since I last celebrated my mum’s birthday together with her. So this year, I decided that I must make the efforts to gravel back home and spend a little bit more time with her and celebrate her 73rd Birthday.

My mum was a school teacher in her earlier days where she had taught up to 3 generations of students in the small town of Labuan ( a tiny island just off the coast of Borneo ). Sometimes when I bring her for walks around the town, we get people still calling her Cikgu.

My mum has always been my inspiration to try and help others to succeed and one of the most patient person I know. I guess that’s one of the traits you pick up being a teacher of a primary school for about 30 years.

We only have one mother and we would always love them as they have sacrificed so much for us. I’m thankful that I am still able to see her even though her health is deteriorating …. she always has an amazing smile for me when I get home which is what I really look forward to.

Happy 73rd Birthday Mum … I will always love you !
