Homeless Man Withdraws Thousands From Faulty ATM Machine

April 6, 2014 – 12:51 pm

A homeless man in Maine, USA, withdrew US$140 from his bank account and was lucky to have it dispense more cash to him.

At 5.30am, he tried his lucky again and kept withdrawing, and withdrawing, until he had accumulated US$37,000!

The woman who queued behind him got impatient and saw him, as a homeless man, stuffing too much cash into his shopping bag, and made a police report.

Luckily for the bank, he handed all the excess money back to the bank, and was not charged. Well, not that he did any crime intentionally. LOL

The money didn’t come from his account, or the account of any other customers, but the machine itself, which had a technical glitch.

March 25, 2014 – 1:27 pm

An employee-only white Xbox One has been posted on eBay for a hefty $2,699.95. The Xbox, which has been tagged “I Made This, Launch Team 2013” was meant for Microsoft employees only, and not for public sale.

However, there was no mention of resale policy, and so this enterprising employee of Microsoft has put it up for sale.

Well, is anyone willing to pay almost $2,700 for an Xbox One where the only difference from a regular one seems to be its colour?

Girl Scouts

March 11, 2014 – 10:32 am

I am helping my friend, whose daughter is in the Girl Scouts. She said that they are planning an annual party-cum-performance and asked me for suggestions and advise.

I though it would be fun if each troop gets up on stage and perform a song. It would be cute to see them dance and sing. It would be a great experience for them, and a memorable event all round.

I am able to get hold of a couple of kids drum sets and other musical instruments, which they can practise on and perform with.

I am just praying that the kids don’t request for the adults to do something similar. Hahaha!!

Jewelry For Men & Women

March 6, 2014 – 1:06 pm

A friend will be celebrating her wedding anniversary soon and asked if I have any suggestions of a couple gift for her.

I gave it some thought and suggested necklaces for women and men. I know she loves to adorn herself with necklaces but I am not sure about her husband! But I thought it would be a great idea.

Other than necklaces, she could also try couple rings or even bracelets. At least, this is something different from couple t-shirts!

Honestly, apart from these, I couldn’t think of more interesting gifts for the couple. What do you suggest?



Private Medical Fees Go Up

March 6, 2014 – 12:55 pm

Malaysians have to brace for more expensive medical fees following a revise which allows doctors to increase their consultation fee by up to 14.4%, and some even say 200%!

There is a saying that dying is cheaper than being sick, and by the looks of this, it is true.

Anyway, insurance companies are laughing their way to the bank at this rate. It is definitely going to be more important to hold an insurance policy now!
