Check EPF Conveniently and Efficiently

If you are working at Golden Triangle and would like to find out your latest EPF, you can go to RHB bank at KLCC. There, there is a EPF kiosk machine just right on your right side after the main entrance. Just follow the simple instruction from the machine and you will be asked to put your thumb on the machine for verification. Once done, the machine will print out the latest statement of your EPF. You can also choose which year you would like to print out. I think that’s pretty cool.

How to stop “spam” sms sent by Digi?

Nowadays, spam doesn’t just come to your email but also to our handphone. You can’t tell the spammer to stop spamming your email no matter how angry or how pity you are, but in handphone you can. To do so, if your line is Digi, just call Digi at 016-2211 800 (Don’t worry, calling this number is free of charge). Your aim is to speak to their consultant but they purposely make it hard for you (I believe this is a way to save man power). But, it’s okay, you just need to fix this once for all. First, dial that number, 016-2211 800 and follow these instructions:

  • Listen to some unneeded lengthy thing
  • Then, press 0
  • Then, press 1
  • Then, press 3 (for other services)
  • Then, press 5 (for assistant to other services)
  • Then, the system will says, “Our consultant will attend to your shortly.”

Then, just let him / her knows that you get tired of those promotional sms from Digi and you want them to stop sending them to you. They will be very kind to do so for you after some identity verification.

After he / she has successfully made this changes in the system, you will receive a message from them saying, “Free Msg: Yr request to stop receiving DiGi promotional notification will be processed within 2 working days. To reactivate call, Digi Customer Service: 01 [Part 2 of 2]

The good news is, after 2 working days, your handphone will be free from those promotional sms from Digi. The bad news is your handphone will be still receiving those annoying promotional sms in these 2 days.


p/s – Today is Dec 2014. The move method might be outdated but one direct way you can do is call to DIGI customer service center to request them not to send you anymore promotional SMS (SPAM). You can do the same for other telco too like Celcom, Maxis or UMobile. Recently, I also call up UMobile to do the same.

Monorail Station during Peak Hour

If you usually take monorail from Times Square to Hang Tuah or vice versa during peak hour, I advice you to walk instead. The reasons are:

  • During peak hour, the monorail will be usually pack. So, by the time you have waited for ten minutes, you can reach there by feet.
  • Walking there isn’t far. Maybe just take you less than five minutes, depending on how far you walk.
  • And last you can save up RM2.40 (to and fro) daily.

Check Engine Oil & Listen to your Car

It is important to ensure that your car has enough engine oil. Just recently, my friend’s car broke down due to this problem. And this problem has caused the engine much problems and to fix it, it is very costly, much costly than you changing to another engine. His engine is 1.3cc and that cause around RM500-600.

Another thing to learn from here is be alert to the symptom. Before his car totally broke down, there is some sound in his car. It sounds like “kung kung kung … “. I think if he stops his car after hearing that sound, maybe he still got slight chance to save his engine.

I’m grateful because my father is in car air-conditioner line and from time to time, he shared his car maintenance knowledge to me.
