My Response to Maxis Uproar ... ♥



Hello guys ... :) 
I heard about the Maxis complaint incident but I have not been following. I'm kind of a Maxis user but not their postpaid customers. My experience with them is limited but below is based on common sense and my limited experience. 

1. You signed the contract. 
As a consumer, we cannot expect a Maxis customer service officer to compare the price with you and said "U Telco is cheaper and we are the most expensive Telco in Malaysia ...". We as a consumer have the responsibilities to compare the price ourselves before we signed any contract with any Telco. GOOGLE is the best friend on this. In contract law, you agreed on every clauses in the contract once you signed the contract whether you have read or acknowledged because it is your job to make sure you know what you are signing. Once you signed, you agreed with the price as well. WHY COMPLAIN? It is rather reflecting your ir-responsibilities and your ability to make a good decision that you won't complain about it. 

2. Thank you as a D Telco users. 
Your complain have made a game change in telco industry. My telco upgrade my internet plan from 8GB to 20GB as well. Thank you but i don't think it is necessary. But i won't reject it if the price remained. Who doesn't want a better benefit? But from the perspective of business owner, i quite sympathy them. They provide what they think is best to their customer, consumer choose what they think is best for themselves. Look for substitutes if you like. Easy as that. Why with the uproar? 

3. Don't ever expect to satisfy human. 
When you give them 20GB, they asked for downgrade. When you free them extra 5GB, they said too much, Internet is not the issue. Consumer wants the best of everything with the lowest price, understandable. Business wants the best profit, understandable as well. There are so many choices out there, no one force anyone to be contracted with Maxis, correct? Don't follow, make your own judgement. Maxis does have their advantages over other telco, such as good reception in high-rise building which my telco cannot provide that. 

4. Try your very least to improve the helpline performance. 
I got only one minimum problem that i wish Maxis to improve and it is their helpline. I really can't stand how long they take to answer a phone call. Every telco or at least 3 main telcos will definitely experience high-call volume but why and how come others do not hold their customers that long? Maybe prioritize calls or get more staffs in? 

I swear that i wrote this objectively without any prejudice or bias.
People started to take granted of the social media and i think Maxis is just one of the cyberbully victim.

Good Luck, Maxis.

Stages of Relationship Growth ... ♥

Hello guys ... :)
I just realize on the right-hand side box, i haven't changed the age and I'm 21 again, YEAH!!!

No matter how independent you were, once you are in a relationship, you become dependent. 
I used to travel alone from A to B happily, now i blame him for not sending or coming with me even just 10 out of 100 occasions. I used to be emotional independent that hardly any person can influence my mood, now within 3 seconds it may charged with anger, frustration, and irritation from bickering or argument with the other half. I used to have and enjoy my time alone, now i would rather have some activities together. I used to ... Tough!

Nature makes sure we fall in love with the most incompatible person in the entire universe ... 
I found distasteful for whom driving a noisy car. I have an aversion to whom smoke. I found it absurd that someone doesn't know how to take care of his health and how to manage his own daily chore. The statement above is true. Factual! I'm falling in love with whom i have never thought of having a relationship with before.

Relationship Growth Stages - Power Struggle Stage 
Here is when we focus on differences & flaws of the other half. There are 2 ways most couples deals with the Power Struggle Stage: 1. Break Up or 2. Survive. I would say the 3rd one is Avoidance. Once they realize the differences and flaws, they avoid. In order to go through this stage, couples need to have in mind that the outcome of this whole relationship is to make things work. Below are some useful tips to overcome this stage for you guys:-
  • accept and appreciate each other’s differences
  • learn to share power, and realize that using force will never get you what you want in love
  • realize who you are and what you have (as a couple)
  • give up your fantasies of harmony without struggle
  • surrender to life just the way it is

"Because we are in a relationship and they are ..." 
This is how we take granted of things. We think that in a relationship means we can stop putting effort in talking, communicating, learning about each other or even take the other half into consideration. People may get better treatment from your the other half than what you get from your the other half. People will have the chance of trying even though things look unworkable in the first place and because you are in a relationship with him, your unworkable things get thrown into dustbin straight away. Listening to the other half become a huge and tough task. We start to wish that things can get our way and we start to force the other half to change. 

Friend's advice is great in how to deal with this kind of behavior or attitude from the other half but those are not able to solve problems. Because the problems are US. Once one party stop making effort, nothing will move. Relationship growth will come to a stop as well. 

Be positive.

[REVIEW] Smokehouse Hotel @ Cameron Highland ... ♥

Hello Guys ... :)
As you can see I have commitment issue, I can't commit myself to an up-to-date blog. Sorry!

Visited Cameron Highland for a quick getaways and I would like to review on my accommodation that i booked through Expedia.com. I believe people needs a genuine and delicate review on the accommodation to make sure a nice and comfortable stay is guaranteed. I reserved a unit of Deluxe Double Room with 1 queen bed, at Smokehouse Hotel, Tanah Rata along with mountain view, free breakfast and free wireless internet (according to my online itinerary). 

I was fascinated with the building and the environment when I was going through various choices and decided on this one as my objective of this getaways was to be as relax as possible. We accidentally left our charger at home, both of us actually put down our phone for the first time? It was great as we really put down the phone and relax. Below are some picture taken by me:-


Verdict:-
Likes
1. Breakfast. I was having heart attack when i was going through the breakfast menu they presented to us. But you don't really have to look at the menu because their waitress actually ask you on your preference like croissant or muffin and omelette or scramble egg. I was quite shocked because i thought all they serve was only croissant/muffin, juice, cereal/porridge, and eggs. The most scariest thing was thinking of whether he will complain. >.< Luckily, a big American breakfast save my ass. Good trick. We were so satisfied in the end. 
2. Environment. As you can see from the pictures above, there are flowers everywhere. It made you happy by seeing it! It is the best getaways accommodation building! Unfortunately, didn't get to take narcissistic photos of myself because of the need of batteries for later on. >.< 

Dislikes
1. The room given. The room given to me was more like standard, it was not spacious at all compare to the picture i saw from the booking apps. Quite disappointed. As it costed me RM400 to get a standard room when my friend paid RM800 to get a suite with 2 room with Smokehouse Hotel? =.= Refer to the picture below. 
2. Bed. I don't know. I can hear "Yi Yi Yi" sound in my sleep when my partner was turning his body. Imagine, what about couple? I was quite embarrassed as i booked the room and it costed RM400 but with a cranky bed? Hmm ... 
3. Wireless Internet. Their Wifi was not working properly. It wasn't well-connected in the room we stayed.
4. Bad soundproof. I am a very cautious person that can be waked by just a little disturbance sound. They have bad soundproof that keep waking me up. This is quite subjective, I didn't hear any toilet-flushing from next door but i can hear when they shut their door even with our window shut tight! 

Below is the picture i feel comfortable to share with you guys as i don't feel right showing the toilet and so on (it is not glam and not match the beautiful pictures above). As you can see from the picture, there is a dressing table on the left side and the door is just right beside, so normally and for real there will not be spaces after the door and in fact there wasn't much walking space between the bed and TV. Deluxe? Hmm ... 

Above is my genuine review on my accommodation at Cameron Highland.
I would rate them 3.5 / 5.0. 3 for the environment and services, 0.5 for the room.
Thanks for reading.
