And that's how, Ladies & Gentlemen, currently happened in my household at least for this month. Such a quiet, calm afternoon was destroyed by a mere football match -__-
Just realize I have not done a proper EURO 2016 introduction on my blog. Thanks to PC breakdown, WiFi breakdown, Noise Pollution in the House, basically nothing went right during the month of May till beginning of June, when comes to the time where finally I've got the time to settle down for some blogging business, the mood all gone. -___-
Ok la maybe I shouldn't put a blame on anything that went wrong. I've my responsible to answer all those pending post I yet to come it out.
Back to the EURO 2016, *retrieve mode on*
I don't know about you, but I just feel that the atmosphere for EURO 2016 is rather.... tame? It's as if the tournament is never existed (which is kinda sad lol). I was SO looking forward to its grant opening on 11th June, and even tried to psycho people around me to get into this game! But all I've got is France won the opening match and I've only my cone of ice-cream from McD to celebrate with it.
I do hope this is not because I'm getting older and the excitement I used to have are gone.
Nevertheless, I'm still manage to keep myself update with EURO 2016 news, all thanks to Stadium Astro app (The coolest app ever!! You should get one!). I've also been sourcing for EURO 2016 videos I could find online, in order to revive the football fever atmosphere at least around me.
and this is one of the videos by Astro, which I find it creative:
INI BARU ADA MOOD!
In case you're not aware, yes I do watch football. My name speaks for itself! =) Girls watch football very weird meh?
When I first heard about CompAsia, I'd no idea what it was until I browse through their website. Despite claiming as "refurbish all types of IT equipment ranging from traditional PCs like desktops and laptops to mobile consumer devices", it doesn't buy me since I was being completely brain-washed by my sisters, that refurbished items is not worthy of your money.
However, out of my curiousity, I went to do some research on this company. To my surprise, I was impressed with their business expansion (currently they operates at Malaysia, Singapore, and now Philippines!) and the positive feedback from consumers on Facebook.
Without much hesitation, I accept the invitation to attend their press conference, to get to know more better about Comp Asia.
Established in the late 2012 in Petaling Jaya, Malaysia, CompAsia is set to impact the ITAD industry Asia-wide by undertaking secure data removal, repair, rebuild, refurbished and remarket used consumer electronics such as laptops, desktops, servers, PC monitors, tablets and smartphones.
All these refurbished items are being test frequently to ensure the devices and PCs are working well and read to be sold at much affordable price, as compared to a new one of similar make.
I was playing one of their refurbished Iphone 6 on that day. I must say, it worked just like the new one you seen in Mac Store!
The press conference kicks-off with Mr Julius Lim -- Founder/CEO of CompAsia (Center) giving the speech, accompanied by Mr Koh Mun Khay -- Vice President/Country Head CompAsia Philippines (Left) & Mr Stephen Yu -- Managing Director of Versatech International (Right).
Here are some key points mentioned during the press conference:
CompAsia announce its regional expansion to Philippine!
After setting up their business in Malaysia since 2012 and subsequently Singapore, now CompAsia is set to impact the refurbished consumer electronics market in the Philippines!
"Our Philippines' move today can help consolidate our regional strategy which is to expand into the international markets to become a leading ITAD provider in Asia," quoted Julius Lim, Founder & CEO of CompAsia.
Reduce & Re-use
Driven by its 'Living Document' that mandates its commitment to provide asset recovery services that are consistent with the green strategy to "Reduce & Re-use," the Company emphasizes on "re-use" as its preferred option and as the most desirable form of resource conservation which is an environmentally-responsible way of conducting an economically sustainable ITAD or refurbishing industry.
Free 1 Year Cracked Screen Protection
To give consumer a peace of mine, all refurbished products comes with 1 year warranty. For refurbished mobile phones, consumers are entitled for free 1 year cracked screen protection! What's more, the pick up and delivery of the damaged items are on CompAsia! No need to go all the way to their office for warranty claim purpose, pick up your phone and call them will do!
Signing off the press conference with both parties shaking their hands.
Demonstration by CompAsia staff.
The staff were there most of the time to show us around. I quite like their green concept applied to their company. If this helps our world a greener place, why not?
Two simple steps to place your order from CompAsia:
All you need to do is just browsing through the products at their website -> place your order -> made payment and you're done!
Sony Xperia ZR in all 4 colours will be coming soon at CompAsia in this month of June!!

Today marks the date where I've been working with my new work place for 1 year!
Happy 1 year work anniversary! Ah Ma~ I've made it~!!
Just realize I should come out with an overall work anniversary (which starts on 2nd May) instead of sticking with the current one. Don't wanna ended up being call bias just because I've a short-term memory and forget all the 'nicest things' someone had done on me.
Anyway, I don't usually blog about work, but I'm dedicated this post to glorify the Lord my God, who has been blessed me so well for this past 1 year. Indeed the picture I used to imagine was tad small, and never thought that the lesson I've learned from my past experiences equipped me well, that I started to go towards the path I used to think it's impossible to reach.
I maybe sound boasting but if I wanted to describe how my old workplace had taught me lots of valuable lessons, this new workplace has trained me to become a better person! I used to think I cannot achieve things, I'm never fated to be here, I'm nothing, all those negative thoughts, you name it! I hated those people who did horrible things on me. I even made my oath to never ever forgive what they've done on me. I don't wanna see them again!
Guess I've been closing both of my ears all this while whenever God tries to tell me to forgive-one-another for countless time.
However, throughout this 1 year I found myself think more maturely and a bigger picture. I no longer argue with these little things that could be resolved overtime. I began to learn to think business comes first instead of pointing who's right or wrong. I become tame and forgivable. Which surprised me cuz all the while I thought I'll never be able to reach this kind of maturity! I've the simplest mindset, you see.
In the other words, yes la my world is rather innocent! *threaten stare*
Perhaps I'm about to hit 30s and begin to think there are more things to do instead of moaning about these little things. I may not know why these people did all these horrible things on me but I'm guessing that's what you'll have to face when you try to climb higher. God is trying to mold me, to be a better person in HIS eyes. Which is why I'd to suffer before I could face the storm. Your past equips the future you. The earlier stage maybe painful but that's how built you to where you are now!
I can feel that God is trying to correct my path upon making a huge mistake I did years ago. I've been praying for this since I started working and I'm eager to see where God will brings me to. ^^
Another thing that happens to me in this past 1 year is BLOGGING! For the first time after 7 years of blogging, I finally have paid post!! *dance* Ok lah, I admit I've been doing in a wrong way but if it's not Angel's help, I will never know blogging can be so much fun, and profitable! Plus, it also restore my perspective towards Chinese Bloggers! (More on this in the other post)
With my IT project coming up starting from this month, I do hope I can juggle between work and blogging well at the same time. #prayhard
As a huge football fans, it’s not possible for Anfieldyee to miss such an important major tournament which happens once in 4 years (also the causes behind those panda eyes on the next working day). However, with so much interruption to book my house TV nowadays (Dad needs to watch TV, Mom asking me to do house core and I only have one TV in my house), my dreams to watch the matches LIVE is deem to be shattered.
Thankfully, with the recent modern technology we have, if you can’t get the TV, do it on APPS! Which is why, I’m super delighted when I found out we can watch matches LIVE at 2 apps developed by ASTRO:
Just last Friday I was lucky to be invited to attend the Stadium Astro & Astro on the Go event, hosted by Astro!
Actually I discovered that previously Astro did held such event for the past few years whenever there was any major football tournaments (FIFA, UEFA, EURO etc) for bloggers. Never know in my dream I’ll get the chance to attend before it has been known widely to the public!! Being a football fan for the past decades (and a noob one), I’d say this is the best gift I’ve ever get thus far! #itsgoodtobeablogger
In conjunction to the upcoming UEFA EURO 2016, our main official broadcaster ASTRO is set to bring all matches LIVE to Malaysian starting from this 11st June 2016! What’s more, you can even watch it LIVE on their APPS – Stadium Astro & Astro on the Go, which pretty much introduced on the event that day!
Seriously, if that mascot is real life, I’d say he’s the most lengzai in this tournament!
The event kick-off with 2 beautiful Emcees to introduce the Apps - Stadium Astro & Astro on the GO!
Let us show you how to use these apps!
Demonstration on Astro on the GO
Astro on the Go app will bring the full coverage of the European Championship; all 51 matches LIVE, beyond the TV screen!
Demonstration on Stadium Astro
Stadium Astro serves as the ultimate companion app for the UEFA EURO 2016, offering official match highlights in multi-angle, in-depth teams and players’ stats with comparisons, news, video on demand content and more.
So why should you get Stadium Astro & Astro on the GO?
Personally I think these two apps will save much hassle for me to get a TV for myself. I don’t need to queue up to book time of my house TV, quarrelling with my family just because of TV, or worse case go buy a new TV just for this tournament! All I need to do is to download the app, buy the sport pass and I’m set to ready for the kick-off!
Here are some quick guidance on how to purchase Astro Sports Pass, Pay Per View or watch selected matches for free with Astro on the GO (from the Media Press Release):
Understand that they are people here who still stick to the traditional way – watching football matches LIVE from the TV together with their family and friends. After all, this is the only time where you can gather around and cheer together. But I also believe that you can achieve the same effect by using their Stadium Astro & Astro on the Go!
Not to mention both apps are free to download!
So football fans, does this help you to solve your dilemma to watch EURO 2016 LIVE at the wee hour?!?
Both apps are available on iTunes and Google Play Store as per the following link:
I don't blame her. After all, she doesn't know me well and tries to encourage me. It's just I felt sudden uneasy, that I've been labelled as boring, no life, giving up myself some sort of person lol!
Actually she's not the only one who came up and told me to mix around (fine lo I'm still single!). In fact, more and more people came and tell me the same thing, which I think this is something I ought to ponder about.
Anyway, I couldn't deny but to agree the 'give-up-yourself' part. All the while I thought I don't have any problem to mix around with new faces (except maybe for guys), until I've hit the wall at my old place, that I began to shut myself up in front of new faces. To tell you the truth, till this date I still have the shadow in my heart.
Whatever they did to me does leave a big impact in my life! (Not to mention that they are the prime cause to my decision to quit Chinese Blogging) No matter how many times my closed friends encourage and tell me how worthy I am, being a people-pleaser doesn't help much! I still care about what they think of me, how they think of me etc. Sounds silly isn't it?
Everyday I have to tell myself that this is a lesson learned, that I shouldn't be so naive anymore. This world is full of evil and you're no longer living in the fantasy world!
Thankfully, with my IT project starting this month, I probably don't have time to think it over. On top of that, after some reviewing sessions with my boss, I thought it's time for me to MOVE ON! Life doesn't stop here and I still have long way to go. If I still moan over my past, chances are I might loose the opportunity that God has given to me AGAIN!
Maybe I should not look at the outcome, and focus on the process. After all, I've learned a lot from the past few months. I learn to think mature, and started to love myself even more than before! This is something better than envy those glorious moment others 厚脸皮地 showing off about isn't it?
