Transparent Plug Holders to the Rescue

I found this wonderful transparent plug holders that you can find at Lazada or Shopee.

So I wonder whether those plugs holders can also be used to hold external hard disk if put horizontally.

So first things first, to solve my messy hanging cables, I attached the transparent plug holders at back of my TV.

Secondly, if I want to watch movies in my external hard disk whether I can put horizontally my external hard disk on top of the plug holders. As I said before, imagine if I don’t have the side table. It means the USB cable will go down from the TV to the floor.

To my excitement, the plug holders can be used to place the external hard disk horizontally.

Without the holder, I have to put the external hard disk either on the side table or on the floor.

Now the plug holders solve my problem of putting my external hard disk on the floor or side table and make it more neat.

I think the difference is due to difference USD rate between when I bought it and when it was refunded.

How To Check That You Understand A Subject

In my daily jobs, I have to lead a group of people. Most of the time, it seems they don’t understand what they are doing and why they are doing it.

Besides when they learn new thing they tend to memorize or they are just relaying what they read instead of understanding it and digest the subject. Basically by memorizing you can’t apply it in real life situation.

Since high school, I hate history because I’m not good in memorizing but I’m good at understanding things.

These are rules of thumbs to check whether you understand a subject

1. Use Your Own Words To Describe The Subject

Strategy pattern (also known as the policy pattern) is a behavioral software design pattern that enables selecting an algorithm at runtime. Instead of implementing a single algorithm directly, code receives run-time instructions as to which in a family of algorithms to use.

In my own words, I will say it in this manner:

Class or function that always change need to be put outside from the main class.

Of course, other people might not understand your description, but most important thing you understand your own words.

2. Use Analogy

Example of Electricity. Most of electrical students can’t understand what is really amperage and voltage. Here is a good analogy.

Watt is power unit with formula as below:

Watt (W)= Amperage (A) x Voltage (V)

Analogy with water garden hose:-

Water come out from garden hose (watts) = Water volume (Amperage) x Water pressure (voltage)

3. Use Comparison Matrix

4. Provide Good Example

A perimeter is a path that encompasses/surrounds a two-dimensional shape. The term may be used either for the path, or its length—in one dimension. It can be thought of as the length of the outline of a shape. The perimeter of a circle or ellipse is called its circumference.

Example what is perimeter:

calculating perimeter
calculating perimeter
Perimeter for the left shape =

6cm + 4cm + 2cm + 3cm +4cm + 3cm + 4cm = 30cm

5. Draw Diagram

From all the description of a subject, can you draw it on piece of paper to depict your understanding? If yes, it means you understand better your subject. If no, try again.

Benefits of Understanding

Indeed by following these, you take up more time to understand a subject. But when you get used to it, it will be easy and you understand the subject better and use it appropriately.

 

 

Water Pump Horse Power Watt Selection Based on Number of Bathrooms

Requirements

I was looking for new water pump for my house. My criteria was quite simple, the water pressure is still high if I open 2 bathrooms and washing dishes at kitchen at same time.

At same time the water pump has good support and affordable.

So I would like to know how many power or horse power needed to support my requirements.

Water Pump Power Estimation

So I went to my usual hardware shop where they have set up a demo set on Tsunami water pumps.

Tsunami Pump – 200W

Imagine one water tap is one bathroom. For 200W the outcome as follows

1) 1 tap open – water pressure high
2) 2 taps open – water pressure medium
3) 3 taps open – water pressure low

Tsunami Pump – 1100W

Imagine one water tap is one bathroom. For 1100W the outcome as follows
1) 1 tap open – water pressure high
2) 2 taps open – water pressure high
3) 3 taps open – water pressure high

Decision

I decided to buy Tsunami water pump 400W because I notice for 200W after opening 2 water taps, the water pressure becomes slow.

Besides, Tsunami pump 400W is still affordable for me at around RM450.

IBN Highlands City in Genting Permai

IBN Highlands City in Genting Permai is new residential condominium with commercial area of shop lots and hotel. Hotel is run by Gloria, a hotel management company from China.

The project is comprising of 12 blocks of leasehold service apartments. In the commercial area, it is planned to have cinema which is good if it comes true! The commercial area will be managed by IBN itself which I think it is good to ensure survival and exclusivity of the area.

The project is now selling its second block. First block is fully sold out. Mostly buyers for first block are foreigners from China. The whole project is expected to be completed in 9 years time.

Minimum selling price is over RM1 million before discount.

Investment Opinion

What is my opinion on this property? For me it is targeted for high end clientele and rich tourists. Besides, tourists who wants to experience luxurious living in Genting are also the potential target customers.

So if you are investors you should target these kind of customers.
