I didn’t realized that WordPress has been upgraded again. That’s why some of my plug-ins did not work and generated warning error messages.

 

Now, my website is back and fully operates. :mrgreen:

IKEA in Thailand

by

IKEA is coming to Thailand!! What a good news for Thai home owners who love to decorate houses with styles in affordable and inexpensive way. IKEA is a world-wide home product store where you can find furniture, accessories, bathroom and kitchen items, and everything about home product. The main concept is IKEA offers a  flat-pack design furniture at affordable prices.

 

 

Where does the name “IKEA” come from? IKEA was founded in 1943 by Ingvar Kamprad in Sweden and it is owned by a Dutch-registered foundation controlled by the Kamprad family. IKEA is an acronym comprising the initials of the founder’s name (Ingvar Kamprad), the farm where he grew up (Elmtaryd), and his home parish (Agunnaryd, in Småland, South Sweden) (Source: Wiki)

 

Here are some cool and famous product:

Skype Unlimited Country

by

Skype offers 25% off discount when you sign up a 12-month subscription for the unlimited country plan. This is a great deal. Normally, Skype will charge you 5.95 per month for this plan and 12.95 for the Unlimited World. There is a small difference between the Unlimited Country and Unlimited World. For the Unlimited Country plan  you will have to select only one country for the unlimited call. If you have the Unlimited World, you can have unlimited call to any country (that Skype offers a service).

 

For some countries, Skype allows you to make a phone call to a cell phone with no additional charge. So, you can either call a land-line or cell phone from either Unlimited World or Unlimited Country plan. However, only Unlimited Country subscription that is on SALE now. It ends TODAY!!

 

Especially, it works out great for me because I call Thailand a lot. Now, Skype offers unlimited calls for both land-lines and cell phones for Thailand. The quality of service is way better than my phonecard purchased from BanKhaNom Thai.

 

Skype even adds couple bonuses. You can get a Skype ToGo number which allows you to make a local phone call to connect to the Skype Hub/Sever before connecting to the destination. But, of course you will lose your air time if you use your cellphone to make a phone call. However, it allows you to make a phone call anytime and anywhere you want without using a computer with the Internet connection. How convenient!! In addition, you can get a free Voice Mail service too.

 

This is the best deal ever!

Surprise! Surprise! It’s a brick and rocks!

by

I found two different news happened in two places, but they share the same kind of trick. Yesterday, I read news about a lady from Florida purchased a new Nintendo DSi for $138 from Walmart. She bought it as a birthday present for her son. When her son opened the box, they both were shocked because there was NO DSi in the box. Instead, the box filled with rocks wrapped in the latest Chinese newspaper.She went back to Walmart and complained about the shocking incident. Wal-Mart initially refused to take the rocks back, deferring to Nintendo, which did the same. Ultimately, Wal-Mart gave in when it was discovered that not only was the box full of rocks, it was full of rocks that had already been returned to the store by a previous customer. The store ended up giving her a refund and a gift certificate for $20. I guess Walmart wants her to buy a planter or vase to fill up those rocks.. hahaha!

Another news I read today was similar to the Walmart incident, but it happened at Best Buy. A customer purchased a MacBook Pro for $2164.89, and when he got home, he learned that it was only a red brick packed with bubble wrap inside the box. He went back to the Best Buy store and talked to the manager who was not willing to help at all. In addition, the manager claimed that Apple sealed the box and there was nothing to do with Best Buy. Therefore, Best Buy will not be responsible for this incident.

 OMG… it’s pretty obvious that Best Bust looks guilty!!  So.. people.. please remember to check your laptop, notebook, MacBook, etc at the Best Buy store before you leave to make sure there was no brick in there!!

Swine Flu

It has been reported that there was the first death caused by Swine Flu in Texas, USA.

“I can confirm the very sad news out of Texas that a child has died of the H1N1 virus,” said Dr. Richard Besser, acting director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. In addition, the doctor expected more cases!

 

Upto now, WHO (World Health Organization) declared that Swine Flue was in level 4 (announced on April 27). Let’s take a look at the scale system below. It will explain what level 4 means.
