One Of The Latest Phishing Thru Email Alert

This one is a litle scary because unsuspecting users could easily fall for this one. 

  • You get an email (fake but convincing) from your bank’s security head stating that your internet access to your account has been blocked because of failed password attempts to access your account.
  • A gif picture or equivalent shows you a graphic scan of your PC and that it has been infected with malware or a trojan.
  • It request you click on the picture to download the latest 2008 Antivirus Software which will remove this latest malware or trojan for you, and that your own antivirus software will not have the latest of updates to combat this one.
  • Your windows security prompt will show you the file (something like AntvrsInstall.cab) and ask if you want to proceed?
  • Do it and you find yourself with the trojan or malware itself gathering as much information it can from you PC.  It may even stay hidden till you actually click to access one of your financial institution’s sites!

You have been warned!

 

 

Movie – The Chronicles Of Narnia Prince Caspian

 Starring: Ben Barnes, Skandar Keynes, William Moseley, Anna Popplewell, Georgie Henley

 A visually stunning sequel which the kids enjoyed but I on the other hand felt that it lacked depth and the rich flavour that C.S. Lewis is famous for.  Perhaps it is a result of too many cuts to shorten the movie length? Also the main battle scene is not as spectacular as it’s predecessor.  Still it is five times better than the BBC made for TV series! 

Love You Till The End – Pogues

Love You Till The End

On Youtube
I just want to see you
When you’re all alone
I just want to catch you if I can
I just want to be there
When the morning light explodes
On your face it radiates
I can’t escape
I love you ’till the end

I just want to tell you nothing
You don’t want to hear
All I want is for you to say
Why don’t you just take me
Where I’ve never been before
I know you want to hear me
Catch my breath
I love you ’till the end

I just want to be there
When we’re caught in the rain
I just want to see you laugh not cry
I just want to feel you
When the night puts on it’s cloak
I’m lost for words don’t tell me
Cause all I can say
I love you ’till the end

Who? What? Why? When? Where? Oh Boy! How swiftly time flies!

One day you find yourself extremely turned on by Wonder Woman and yet have no clue what to do about it and the next you find next you’re married with kids and thinking what else have you got in life to do before it ends! Ha ha a little melodramatic eh? But that is what age will do to you when it catches up with you.  If you haven’t already guessed by now……well I’ll be turning 39 next month sheesh!

*sings* Regrets I’ve had a few, but then again too few too mention. I did what I had to do and saw it through without exemption

Well instead of moping, and going through the birthday blues ritual….I’ve decided this year and hopefully all the years to come that I’ll celebrate LIFE!  I’ve had a semi-charmed one so far! So woo hoo! Great parents, sister, and kids! Hmmm I sense that I’m missing someone or something….Hopefully it will come to me soon, before that someone or something bites me in the you know where!

Okay before I sign off…*yawns* post night shift see….well anyhow the book I’m currently reading is freaking hilarious! I nearly burst out laughing on board the train to work when I read this…

The scene is at a bar when a young woman just offered to buy him a drink….

‘Let me get this….’ a voice, female at my elbow.

‘One of the finest phrases in our language,’ said I, without turning round.  I could see in the mirror that it was the bony-bunned creature, levering herself back up on to her stool.  Absoulutely love small women, they make my dick so much bigger.

:lol:

Book Review -With No One As Witness by Elizabeth George

This being my first book from the Author, I had the impression that she was a native British writer since the story was set in England. Boy was I sorely mistaken, she was actually born in Warren, Ohio (USA) and was a high school English teacher for almost fourteen years or more.

It took me quite a while to finish reading this book. Apart from it being 662pages long, I had to look up and learn at least forty plus new words. Then there is the character rich storyline in which she has an uncanny ability to delve into the intricacies of the mind of practically all her characters. You hear their spoken and unspoken thoughts, their relationships with others all deliciously laid out on an emotional platter.

The overall storyline moves at quite a slow place from the beginning to past midway but with the compelling investigation and some nice unexpected twists the reader is engaged to the very end. Some may find the little shocker towards the end brutal and unnecessary but I beg to differ, I applaud her for it as not many Authors are willing to add that extra touch of realism.

When the naked body of a dead young boy is found mutilated and artfully arranged on top of a tomb, it opens up a whole can of worms for the Metropolitan Police Force of London, for it turns out that this is just the latest in a string of similar murders. The thing is that the previous victims had been either black or of mixed race and had been written off as gang related killings. This latest victim, however, is white and is inviting a whole lot of interest. Hoping to contain the accusations of racism and callousness, AC Hillier appoints acting Detective Superintendent Thomas Lynley to the case, assigning him newly promoted Detective Winston Nkata (window dressing in Hiller’s mind for the public as Nkata is off Jamaican background) and allowing Lynley to keep fiery Detective Constable Barbara Havers on the team. Everyone quickly realises that they have a serial killer on their hands; and as they race to discover how many prior victims there were and identify them, and to try to establish a pattern of sorts that would give them a clue as to the killer’s modus operandi, Lynley also has to contend with Hiller’s need to direct the investigation and his desire that Lynley and his team cooperate with the newspapers. As the killings continue to mount, and as the police officers race to get a result, things take an unexpected and explosive turn, one that perhaps neither Lynley nor Havers will ever recover from. – Story Outlined By Tregatt

If It’s Too Good To Be True…It Probably Is!

The subject of this post is one golden rule you should bear in mind in the fight against scammers. 

In Malaysia there are already quite a number of scams ranging from ‘Scratch and Win’ to ‘Winner’s Circle’ etc.  It will only be a matter of time before they make their way here…..or they could already be here?! see one such example of how they do it….

Modus Operandi

A man approaches you with a pamphlet of which he request that you open it up immediately, he will sound excited telling you that you have won a mystery prize. He will even make a few calls to prove that he is not a fraud. The other party whom he calls will ask you a few questions such as:

  • How many pamphlets did you receive? He just wants to ensure that the staff who was with you does not cheat him.
  • What colour is the circle that is printed on the pamphlets? Is it blue, green or grey? If it’s blue or green then you do not need to go to their office to claim the prize as these 2 colours only entitles you to specific discounts if you spend a certain sum of money.

The guy who approached you is by then very excited and begs you to go to his office to claim the prize so that he can get his share of commission and he also promises that the whole process will only take 30 mins.

When you reach the office, they’ll probably tell you that you’re entitled to 2 gifts from the list and they are only agents helping the brands give out “samples” as gifts for customers to try out. They’ll make a call to another person whom they claim is their sponsor, to tell him that they have a winner. They will even pass the phone to you to “make it look genuine”…. They may even claim that the sponsor does not trust them entirely and hence needs you to answer a few questions:

  • Do you know the person who handed out the pamphlets to you?
  • Are you related to the person who handed the pamphlets to you?
  • How many pamphlets were given to you?

After the call, the guy in the office tells you that you’ll need to pay for the newspaper advertisement for the free gifts. In order to proof to the public that someone did win the prize, this will only be a relatively small sum of money. They will then ask you how you want to pay for the advertisement and If you tell then Visa or Mastercard then…..

They might claim that they do not have the credit card machine in the office and hence will need to go somewhere else (which is very near from where you are) to swipe the card. They will tell you not to worry, as they will get a staff to drive to the other location in a matter of minutes while you wait in the office with them.

They’ll make another call, asking for a “special” device (which can be used to know what you actually won) and the other free gifts to be delivered to the office. The guy will suddenly sound very much more excited claiming that their sponsor says that you’re entitled to 5 mystery prizes, since no one won the previous month. So if you managed to win the “Toyota Altis 1.6” You will be entitled to 5 “Toyota Altis 1.6”. This will make you even more curious as to what your mystery gift is. However in order to get the 5 mystery gifts, you’ll need to pay another RM 10,455.00. And again they will ask for your card.

Here are a few of the names they go by….

Nabinco Network Sdn Bhd
Welley Corporation (M) Sdn Bhd
Glotron Marketing
 
Some websites that have been started as a result of their scams….

http://www.consumer.com.my/message/index.php?query=welley&amount=0&blogid=1

So what can you do? Well you should do this at the very least…….

1)Lodge a police report at the country where the incident happened
2)Lodge a complaint with the tourism promotion board of that country

For cases with regards to Goldtron Marketing, you will have to lodge a police report in JB,enclose the police report and email it to the Consumers Association Of Subang & Shah Alam, Selangor (CASSA).

A Day At Viviocity

Met my family there after work to recce the assembly area where we will board our Coach to to KL.  The  shopping area was jam packed! especially since the Great Singapore Sale has started. 

Anyhow after an early dinner we found the area and even managed to sneak a peak into the interior of the coach and I must say it looks promising.  After a little window shopping we headed on to Coffee Bean to have coffee and cake befoe heading home.  *mental note* Mrt journey time from Harbourfront to Woodlands – one hour.

 

Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull (2008)

 Starring: Harrison Ford, Ray Winstone, Shia LaBeouf, Cate Blanchett, Karen Allen

I have mixed feelings about this one…I did enjoy it overall and I think Harrison Ford did an excellent job!  However the reason for it perhaps is the ‘Alien’ bit of the storyline, still it must have been a monumental task for the directors to come up with both a plausible storyline as well as a top notch action adventure to follow in the tradition of the Indiana Jones series. 

I also feel they did a great job of casting Shia LaBeout since he is very likely going to be the one to continue the series if they so choose.  I honestly cannot see Harrison Ford playing the lead for a fifth installment if they want to keep the audience seated at their edge for another spectacular adventure.

If you are a fan as I am then YES go watch it! And if you’re not but still want to be entertained, well you’ll surely get your money’s worth.

 

Cheers!

Juleslife Personal Code Of Conduct And Thoughts

Everyone goes through life learning, trying to adapt and survive.  We all have our own set of values and frames of reference on how we tackle any given situation.  Here is a shortlist of heartfelt thoughts and items I strive to live by or a personal code of conduct if you will. 

  • Live tomorrow’s life today!
  • Never forget to say a simple please, thank you etc.
  • Never use the word ‘Ugly’ or all it’s variations to describe another human being.
  • Always tell the truth, and if you somehow cannot then I rather you be silent. 
  • If there is no trust, then there is no relationship.
  • Listen with you ears and your heart, not with your mouth.
  • Choose your battles wisely, not all battles are worth fighting for nor are some even ‘battles’ to begin with.
  • If you do decide to engage in a battle, be prepared to lose. For no one ever truly wins in a battle.
  • There is always a lesson to be learnt, be it from a fool or a wise man.
  • Life is simple, it is man that makes it complicated.
  • You can only grow and move forward in life when you constantly challenge yourself.
  • Be grateful.
  • Self righteousness is how you set yourself up for betrayal and loneliness.
  • Happiness is not a state of being elated or high on life but rather it comes with inner peace and contentment.
  • Be humble.
  • Lose you temper and you lose more than just that ( now if I can only remember this one more often)
  • Everyone can find faults but not everyone can find remedies or solutions.
  • The more you give, the more you receive.
  • You learn better when you teach what you have learnt.
  • The tighter your hold on the treasures of this earth, the greater your loss.

 

Time For Another Short Holiday….

Well I might bring the kids to the Sunway Theme Park in Malaysia for a change but will see how that goes.  I’ve also decided for a change to try the ‘Best Coach Service’ (Aeroline) available for the trip there, so we’ll see if they can really deliver. 

On my trips to KL, I’ve tried quite a few different Hotels namely Hotel Istana, Ritz Carlton, Marriot, Berjaya Times Square Hotel and if I’m not wrong the Melia. This time round we’ll be trying the Corus Hotel which is a five minute walk to KLCC and the Petronas Twin Towers.

Well here’s hoping all goes well……

Dr John Demartini In Singapore

I managed to get a free DVD introducing Dr Demartini and his life changing program which I found very interesting and would definitely want to learn more about it.  I’m not sure if you still can get hold of the DVD since the two day program is about to start on the 24th of May to 25th of May but here is the link

Unfortunately I canot afford to cough up $1800 for this two day event so I guess I’ll just have to search to see if his book is available.  Apparently he is one of the stars from the movie/documentary that was released sometime back called ‘The Secret’.  And if you think it is all just marketing hype etc. I wouldn’t blame you as I too am slightly skeptical, but hey even for this event they claim to have a money back guarantee if you’re not convinced or satisfied with the program so there you have it.  So if I ever manage to find the book and read it, I’ll keep y’all posted alright?

The last life changing program I attended and still believe in to this day is Dr R Stephen Covey’s The Seven Habits Of Highly Effective People. 


The Ultimate Human Transformation Methodology
The Demartini Method ™ is the culmination of more than thirty years of research and studies in numerous disciplines including physics, philosophy, theology, metaphysics, psychology, astronomy, mathematics, neurology and physiology. It is a revolutionarily transformation method which results in a new and refreshing paradigm in thinking and feeling.

What once took weeks, months or even years can now be accomplished in a matter of hours. It is a foolproof and effective means of transforming any form of stress or conflict into grateful states of love and vitality.

The method involves the use of a pre-determined series of questions and actions directed toward the objective of bringing an individual’s conscious mind to states of presence and certainty, and to their physical body the feelings of gratitude and unconditional love.

The Demartini Method ™ is now being used in over 50 countries throughout the world and is being studied in a number of Universities. Millions of individuals have now heard of this stress reducing, conflict resolving and heart opening method. It is presently being introduced to psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, health professionals, prison workers, business executives, financial specialists, film producers, actors, politicians, and U.N. delegates. Anyone can benefit from learning how to use this most important and life changing tool.
