i think by now most of us are aware that we can keep our mobile numbers when we switch telcos. but do we really know what it involves? well fear not because i have initiated the process. i'm switching back to celcom. went to the jalan ampang branch. filled up a few forms and that's it. now i have to wait for 2 to 7 days for everything to clear. there's a few caveats to it. the account you are porting needs to be in your name. and if u have any supplementary lines u have to transfer everything lock stock and two smoking barrels.

if it seems that there's any issue outstanding with your old telco than they have the right to reject the application and you need to sort it out first before trying again.

which brings me to why i'm switching in the first place. as u all know i used to be on maxis. then maxis fucked me over so i switched to celcom. i had no complaints with celcom well almost la, no telco is perfect but i got over it pretty quickly. then the senorita who is on maxis got an offer for the maxis family plan thing. she opened a supplementary line so that i could use it and make free calls to her all the time - since i don't really call anyone else anyways. i terminated my celcom account and switched to maxis. things were going okay. intermittent 3g/gsm network switching aside, everything was okay.

then i found out that i would have to make more business related calls and make business related surfing and what not. i can claim all this but the powers that be required that all billing is under my name. so we went to maxis center in sunway and did the necessary. so somehow maxis managed to mess things up. the senorita's number is supposed to be supplementary to mine but they still had her as a separate account - wait the number is supplementary but the account is separate. huh? well what it means is basically they didn't do the account transfer correctly or something like that.

i called 123 to ask them to fix it. this lady answered and said that they can't do it over the phone i need to go to maxis center in sunway. fuck that. i said its not my fault. can u just fix everything online since all the records should be online anyways right? well this mona said she'd call sunway and will call me back.

she never did. so i dragged my ass to maxis klcc. told them what happened and ask if they can fix it. the customer rep, sarah told me that there was something wrong with my account. the supplementary account should be under my name. but it seems that it is still separated. but it is a supplementary account? huh? so can u fix it? no we can't. i have to go to maxis center sunway. i made a mini scene, so sarah said she will email maxis sunway with my details and then they would call me to update on my status.

they never did. so i did the 123 again. talked to kesevan. who said that he will call me by the end of the day with some solid answers.

luckily he did. it seems that maxis sunway have no records of pending instructions with regards to my account. he asked if i remembered who the person who attended to me. i told him wtf. if u go to burger king 2 weeks ago would u still remember the person who served u? plus i refused to go back to maxis sunway. when everything should easily be fixed with a quick key presses. kesevan wanted to close the complaint. i told him yeah u can close la. but its not resolved. hehe if u heard me on the phone u might think that it was such a big issue. but this is a matter of principles. i don't want to waste my time going back to sunway to fix something which is not my fault.

so i told kesevan that i'm switching to celcom.

it probably would not affect them the least. but maxis customer service sucks balls.

but they can still screw me by blocking the transfer cause the senorita's number is under her name. even if kesevan said that her account is supplementary and all that.

so now we just have to wait..

Brand new year, same old shit?

2017 is here. After that very eventful 2016 one can't help but hope that the new year brings about more positive things. It doesn't look all that good though.
Will we get an election this year? I'd seriously consider it if I was the pm. I mean yes he has go a lot going for him but what he doesn't have at the moment is a credible United opposition to give him a run for his money. So yeah. Calling for an early election may be something that can be to his favour.
Will stupid acts by stupid people stop making then famous? Nope. Early on we saw a bunch of kids scaling the IPOH sign for shits and giggles. Posted everything on social media. Last I heard they've already come in to give statements to the fuzz. So the moral of the story is if you wanna do stupid things don't blab on social media with your smiling mug there for everyone to see.

What's in it for me.

Looking at how the campaign for the Sarawak state election is going you would think that is a matter of who can promise the most who would probably win it. Difference being one party boasts a track record and the other one, well depends on which other one that is doesn't. 
I especially love it how these promises are all presented as conditional upon winning the election. Doesn't reek of bribery at all eh? Not buying votes. Yeah right. 
You would think that given how Selangor and Penang are run, they would want to see it emulated in Sarawak? I guess loyalty goes a long way over there. 
As it is there are a couple of outstanding issues that Sarawak can use as a bargaining chip in trying to force the federal government to start giving them more.
Oil royalties, more federal projects etc. and what better way to do it than to vote for the opposition? 
If the opposition wins, then Sarawakians can send a message to the federal gov't that hey if you don't give us what we want than t…
