What's New

Last week I had a family reunion back in Penang.

Over the weekend, my mother caught me working on my Macbook and the first thing she said was
"Eh why your screen so small? The words so small after you spoil your eyes!"

I replied
"I know mum, I was seriously considering buying a LCD Monitor once to hook up to my laptop but I decided that it would be a luxury not a necessity and so I decided against buying it".

My mum replied
"What do you mean? This is a necessity lah! After you spoil your eyes then how?'

Hmmm.. I never thought about it that way... and after all, mum knows best right?

So the minute I got back to KL I went over the Low Yat and told the man behind the counter
"Give me the biggest LCD monitor the world has ever seen!"

He replied sheepishly
"Orr... ok"..

I now not only have a monitor in the office the size of Egypt but I also hooked it up to my laptop so I can use dual monitors. Meaning I can drag windows from one monitor to the other or watch two movies at the same time.


Even the new additions to our Nuffnang team were impressed.

Speaking of Nuffnang, this month has been quite an exciting month.
For the month of November alone, 5 new people have joined the growing team after our huge recruitment drive, and we're still looking to hire another two programmers.

Yesterday I went for lunch with a few of our new Nuffies like Nicholas here who took a pay cut to come in as our new Marketing Manager at Nuffnang.

And Esther here who is already being overworked by us one week after she came in :P

And yes they both have blogs too. Nicholas's is here and Esther's is here.

Our Nuffnang team in Singapore has also made some headway. Next Monday they're planning a "no-frills" movie screening for it's thousands of Nuffnangers.

On top of that, Ming and I got a little bit of satisfaction lately.

For a long time we've always wanted that we have a complete organization that has charity programs to give back to the community and today Nuffnang is partnering with Nike to fulfill that dream.Nike has been a long-time client of Nuffnang with over 5 different campaigns run in both Nuffnang Malaysia and Singapore so I guess it was just a matter of time before we finally did something out of the box together.

This charity run I would imagine is the first of many things. Click here to find out what the run is all about.

Kudos to the team in Singapore on that!

Ok lah guys... I'm in the office now and it's 8.42AM... time for me to start working.

Will update again soon ok?

Have a great Wednesday ahead everyone!

PS: All the pictures in this entry are all taken by my trusty Panasonic DMC - FX33

Do you use font 30 with your kick ass monitor. No syiok with big monitor small font like 8 kan. :P

Super Gentleman said...

although i admit having a kickass big widescreen is nice, bt when u r surfing d net, u will notice dat sum sites, especially local ones, doesnt seem 2 b widescreen compatible... d screen kinda looks empty liddat... bt d gud thing is nt all sites r liddis lorr...

iamthewitch said...

I really think you should learn how to adjust the exposure of your camera... It's not going to do Panasonic any justice with those pictures... No offense k? :)

Ubi said...

Wahh.. a new toy, kaya la u =)
You should search for a progam that allows you to just click a button to change from screen to screen.. Im using Ultramon. Its a multi-monitor utility and should be compatible for Macs =)

Danny Foo said...

Budak.. aper size the monitor?

I need a bigger one for myself. The 17" is beginning to be too small for my Photoshop demands. :P
