THE OPENING OF THE SECOND CSL 3S CARE CENTER AND NORTHERN HUB IN MEGAMALL PENANG

Yesterday marked another great journey for CSL as it launched its second 3S Care Center and Northern Hub (First one was at Plaza Low Yat, Kuala Lumpur) in Megamall, Seberang Prai, Penang. The launching was in line with the company’s mission to have a flagship service center cum branch office to cater to the needs of its customer for the Northern region, ie, Perlis, Kedah, Penang and Perak. The 3S represents After Sales Services, Technical Support and Mobility Solutions – in short SERVICE, SUPPORT and SOLUTIONS. The opening ceremony was graced by Dato’ Dr Eric Chuah (CSL Group Managing Director), Mr Edwin Gan (CSL Country Manager) and 17 Master Key Distributors from all over Malaysia. Based on Dato’ Dr Eric Chuah’s opening speech, it was known that CSL has been advising Malaysians to go through the Switching Era together by converting their Mobile to Mobile Internet, Single SIM to Dual SIM and also change their perception of Unaffordable Mobile to Affordable Mobile. After all, CSL is the pioneer mobile manufacturer in Malaysia, thus we should always support our local products. Even prior to the launching, hundreds of potential buyers have been queuing up to take advantage of the great discounts of RM100 to RM400 for the smart phones and switch series.

The other model of Dual SIM card mobile which we were briefed was the CSL Dual SIM MI350 also known as the SWITCH Dual (RM699).

The MI350 might not be the best smart phone in the market, but it certainly has a great responsive touch screen with great preloaded apps. At RM699, it definitely cheap and would just fulfill the basic needs of a new Android smart phone user. Compared to the MI410 (RM799) with has a larger touch screen (4.1” HVGA TFT LCD Capacitive Touch Screen Display) and running on Qualcomm 1Ghz Snapdragon, I still prefer the MI350 as it has dual SIM slots and more fine in design. You can read more of the MI350 review at my earlier post. For more information and future developments, you can check out CSL Malaysia’s official website for more updates.

We also had some social hours to mingle with the rest of the bloggers, researched on the functions of the top 5 models, video interviews with some of bloggers on their feedback on the phones and at the same time savor some of dishes from one of the prominent café s in Megamall – Life 1 Café.

CSL3SOPENING03

We had Boxing Chicken (2pcs cut to 4pcs – RM6.80), Fried Fish Fillet (RM15.80), Chicken Nuggets (6pcs – RM4.80), Chicken Spaghetti Bolognese (RM11.80), Chicken Piccatta (if with rice – RM18.80) and fruit juice (Apple, Orange & Dragon Fruit – RM4.30). Somehow, the food did not impress me at all as most of the dishes were deep fried. Moreover, I was still recovering from my illness. To me, it was kind of salty for most dishes.

Currently, they are planning to launch the product very soon on the market with a recommended retail price (RRP) of RM699.

Compared to the previous model of CSL MI 300, this new model would be almost the same size, except that it would be thicker by about 2mm. With a wider touch screen now at 3.5” HVGA, I’m sure it would have a less cramped virtual keyboard for big fingers people like me. 😛 Well, I can’t comment much such as which version of the Android OS they will be having until I have the physical phone in my hands. I’ll write more on the user-friendliness of the model when I get my hand on one soon. At the mean time, you can check out CSL Malaysia’s official website for more updates.

SAY NO TO DRUG ABUSES

MALIBUDRUGHOME

When I was young, I often visit my neighbors to play during my free time. I used to remember they had an uncle who was a drug addict. Being a young child, I could not understand the reason behind him being an addict. Though I felt a little scary about it, I still go to their house for a session or two of games. Sometimes, I do see some used syringes scattered underneath his bed.

Since most patients are in the denial, it would be rather difficult for them to seek treatment during the crucial period, especially during that time when medication was not that advanced yet. If it would have been today, I would probably advise my neighbor to persuade her uncle to seek the required treatments. Nowadays, most rehabilitation centers do offer inpatient substance abuse treatment. At least, it would help those affected persons to eliminate their addictions and lead a better life. Overdosed of drugs or alcohol could lead to fatal diseases and many other complications. Thus, it would be great to stay away from them.

Anyway, that neighbor of mine met his fate not long after. All I could remember was that an ambulance took his almost frozen body and never saw him again. I had never asked about his absence. I guessed he would have long gone by now.

ZAP THOSE ZITS

ADULTACNEPROB

As I was flipping through some of the lifestyle magazines recently, I realized that more and more companies are coming out with new products and solutions in their advertisements. They would be offering slimming courses, weight loss products, hair treatments and beauty products of many needs and wants, obviously setting their targets towards those young urban professionals.

Nowadays, it had become quite a norm that regardless you are a man or a woman, cosmetic products had become quite a hot selling product on the market as both sexes are willingly to spend a lot of time and money to make their appearances excel in public. Needless to say, they would be on a high look out for products related to skin whitening, moisturizing, anti wrinkles, adult acne problems, pigmentation and many more.

I often wondered how much money one would need to earn in order to have the best appearance in the eyes of others. Looking good would never stop there as you would also need to maintain your appearances throughout your life. There’s the facial scrub to exfoliate dead skin and black heads, the facial wash to have a cleaner skin from the dirt and dust within the atmosphere, the face moisturizer or toner to moist your skin for a healthier and ageless look. The list will never end there as there would be different products available to suit different needs such as for dry skin, oily skin, pores, etc.

KNOWING THE BEST FOR YOUR CAR AND YOU

AUTOINSURE

There’s no doubt that buying a car is easy for many people out there but to maintain a car is not as hassle free as one may think. There are many things to take charge of after the purchases such as the changing of engine oil, air filter, car tires replacement and alignment, protecting that shine on your car, renewing of the road tax or even getting the cheapest auto insurance that would suit your needs. Well, your new “babe” would surely need lots of your attention after owning her from now onwards. LOL!

There are a few notes that I would like to stress on while you own a car. Firstly, it the golden rule of “Don’t Drink and Drive”. There’s nothing wrong with having some happy times in life but if you are under the influence of alcohol, it would be better to let someone else sober do the driving instead. If not, just take a cab home and make sure your car is securely locked and appropriately parked.

Secondly, it’s the “Don’t Text & Drive” even if you really need to send an urgent text messaging to just anyone. Pull over your car and park at a safe spot that would not obstruct any traffic and make whatever calls or text messages you would need to do before proceeding to your next destination.

The latest concern by the respective authorities sparked another new distraction while driving. It’s the “Don’t Eat and Drive” policy. Through a recent survey, it was found that many drivers would commit such an act due to their hectic lifestyle. Meals on wheels had become a norm in the lives of many drivers. There have been many reported accident cases caused by the distractions from spilled drinks, ketchups or even falling asleep from a “too heavy meal” while driving. If you intend to eat, do it in a safe spot and not while driving. Make sure you are not drowsy after each meal before driving off.
