My Message Tone from "Pages of Treasure" 《Click入黄金屋》



This is one the background music played in the drama "Pages of Treasure".
I came across with the piano version on youtube last year. The melody was beautiful and I decided to convert and store it into my phone as ringtone.

Somehow my sister found out about it and used it as message tone on her phone as well.
And guess what, now not only my sister but some of her friends are using the same message tone as I did. Sometimes, it may ends up all of us checking our hp for message when this music is played .... ^.^

I couldn't remember who is the person who played and uploaded the piano version on youtube.

If you search for "love song on piano pages of treasure" on youtube. You will be surprised to find out that there are so many similar clips available.

Anyway, whoever is he/she, thanks for sharing the nice music...

Streamyx Speed Upgrade

My brother just did the streamyx speed upgrade from 1Mbps to 2Mbps last month.
He has to pay RM130 /  month for the upgrade.

However I just do not see any improvement after the upgrade.
In fact, I felt it has become even slower.
Now, I couldn't even stream any movie on PPStream with the laggy connection.

My brother did the speed test after the upgrade through the speedometer feature on  the streamyx main page, the results looked good.
Somehow this feature is not available now, so I did the speed test on http://www.speedtest.net/ instead.

Well this is what streamyx offer for RM 130 / month ...











It is not even half of the speed as stated in the package.This is definitely not acceptable.
For all streamyx users, pls do your speed test to make sure that you are getting what you have paid.
We are going to complain about this, let's see how TMnet is gonna get back to us. Btw, they still owe us a cordless phone which comes together with the package. >"<
