Bekelah waterfall trip (Maran, Pahang)

bekelahLast week was a great weekend, i went to Bekelah waterfall, in Maran, Pahang. Quite popular place for picnic and recreational activities, but its just me who didn’t noticed about that.

The program was organized by ARC (Adventure Club) of International Islamic University. The program just 2 days, and 2 nights.

We based at a point, where we have to walk around 2 hours to reach there. The route was quite difficult at the other end, where we have to walk through rocks, just besides the big streams of water. If we fall into the water with the heavy bags, I couldn’t imagine what to do.

The place was very nice, was very very very nice.. 🙂 You should go there once in your life time. The camping site is quite small, its really tight enough for 80, our group. But the river have a big area to swim and having any activities like water confidence, river crossing and flyisng fox.

We plan to do flying fox, but we do not bring a static rope, we just have a dynamic rope. So, the plan just drowned 🙁

I’ll post some pictures after this, not ready yet.

Next week insya-Allah I’ll be there again, with ARC from IIUM matriculation center. 🙂 wanna join me?

Speed up your browser – Mozilla Firefox

Here’s something for broadband people that will really speed Firefox up:

1.Type “about:config” into the address bar and hit return. Scroll down and look for the following entries:

network.http.pipelining network.http.proxy.pipelining network.http.pipelining.maxrequests

Normally the browser will make one request to a web page at a time. When you enable pipelining it will make several at once, which really speeds up page loading.

2. Alter the entries as follows:

Set “network.http.pipelining” to “true

Set “network.http.proxy.pipelining” to “true

Set “network.http.pipelining.maxrequests” to some number like 30. This means it will make 30 requests at once.

3. Lastly right-click anywhere and select New-> Integer. Name it “nglayout.initialpaint.delay” and set its value to “0“. This value is the amount of time the browser waits before it acts on information it recieves.

If you’re using a broadband connection you’ll load pages MUCH faster now!

Technotest Family day – Bukit Merah LakeTown Resort

30 June 2005 to 2 July 2005, I’ve been to Bukit Merah akeTown Resort, for a family day program. The trip was enjoyable, gathering many families, and most important thing is, so many babies! 🙂 My father was an advisor for that company, a engineering based company, in Oil and gas industry.

It was a nice place, resort, theme park, shop lots, orang utan island, eco park.

The first thing I did when I reach there is searchig for available wireless network, but none. There was a cyber cafe over there, luckily I can have access to internet, keep in touch with my friends and customers.

What a nice trip! 🙂


Basic HTML for your website

htmltag[Picture credit here]

Nowadays, more and more people start to make thier own personal website. The human nature, wants to be acknowledge, to be known, the feeling of belongings, inclined people to have thier own webiste.
More technology have been invented to helps people to have thier own website. Free website hosting have included file manager to make website management much more easier. Today, blogging come accross, where user can have their own website even without knowing about all HTML tags. But still, we should not neglect the basic knowledge of HTML.

This post would be an answer on “how to make your own website?”. Not really an answer actually, but as a guideline and basic information

Inside here I include some basic HTMl tag for you to be familiar with.

Include an image
<img src=”image_name.jpg”>

This code will insert an image in your documet. There are some additional arguments that can be included in the IMG tag. Blow is an example

<img src=”image_name.jpg” height=”400″ width=”350″ border=”0″>

The tag is pretty simple, you can understant it as you can read it. It specify the height and width of the image.

Link TAG

You can make a hyperlink to another page of your website, or to another page accross the internet. It can be also a hyperlink to a HTML page, or a media to be executed or dowloaded. This is the sample tag:

<a href=”another_page.htm” target=”_blank”>

There is another arguments that added to the TAG, that is target. Target argument is to define the linked documet to be opened in which frame or browser. In this case, _blank is to tell the browser to open the document in a new window. If you’re implementing frame in your website, target will tell your browser to open the document in which frame.

I think this is enough for everyone for having their own website, with image and few pages.

Another method is by using Blog. You can register for free, and have your own page easily, even without even knowing HTML tag. Example of free blogging service are BlogDrive.Biz and

Havva try! 🙂

A trip to Gunung Tebu – alot to learn..

Well, this might be the 15th time i have been there.. This time it wil be a program with my father’s collegue.

The nice trip about this program is about the theme, to enhance thier business activity. Some will wonder, what Gunung Tebu can help. Some will says, mountain hiking activity itself can help improve one’s self motivation. Some will says, the air of Gunung Tebu itself will help you to improve yourself, in term of mind activity, mind concentration and self motivation. Thats why we have been there since around 12 years ago.

In this trip, we were trained and explore our mind power to utilised within our daily life. The training is not for us to walk on fire, or puling a bus with our teeth, but how we could improve our business.

One thing interesting about this trip is, we didn’t bring stove for cook, ni rice. Just Melilea Greenfield Organic, water, and some snacks. For three days. But i wonder, why without much food, my bag still full and heavy! :-/
