I was considering to get a pair of new sports shoes for quite a long time since my last one was dead after years of usage.However,I can’t find one with a reasonable price and good comments until I found New Balance Classics 500 on Zalora( the sister company of Lazada) days ago.
It’s a bit retro style,but it fits me well.New Balance always designs for comfortable wear and it never fails me.I bet that you can’t imagine how cheap it could be.As the shoes is short in size(only US 9 in stock which is just my size),it sells at the discounted price RM100.9/USD33.6 only.What a bargain!
The only worry buying shoes online is we can’t try it first.Luckily I made a correct measurement and my feet could get comfortable when wearing it. Continue reading →

Currently,some Maxis iPhone 5 users have received update for enabling 4G LTE service on Maxis network.It has been reported on MalaysianWireless in this morning.Since iPhone 5 is not supporting 2600Mhz 4G LTE network which is initially applied on Malaysia’s 4G LTE network,the current carrier update from Maxis implies that Maxis has been supporting 1800Mhz 4G LTE network from now on.
Up to now Maxis hasn’t yet released any official announcement for the coverage of 1800Mhz 4G LTE network.However,we may see the overall coverage map from OpenSignal map.
I‘ve tried many mobile telco services since MNP available in Malaysia.At first,I changed to DiGi from Maxis as it’s cheaper at that time.However,I gave it up soon because of its bad coverage,especially 3G. So U Mobile got to be my second choice:better plan and quite good 3G coverage as well as speed.Well,after more than one year,I find that there are some weird issues such as hard to connect 3G data with full signal or always sucessfully running on roaming mode when outstation but failing to get data connection.As a heavy mobile data user,it makes me really sad.I want to get a service with reasonable price and good data service quality.Now,I turn to try TuneTalk.
I directly order the SIM pack from the website.It’s free of charge and with RM2 airtime.The only thing you need to do is filling the form with your own particulars,choose the number you wanna get to use and submit it.You can choose to get either normal SIM,micro SIM or even nano SIM.
Nokia Here is a navigation app originally designed on Windows Phone,however,Nokia now has decided to expand it into iOS and Android free of charge.I believe a lot of iOS device users will definitely like it because Apple maps is still quite lousy in a number of places.
Nokia Here supports both iPhone and iPad with iOS 4.3 or later.The map is based on well-known NAVTEQ’s resources.It also supports community map in some countries so that users could add missing information by their own,updating the maps faster and more accurate.
The details of the features:
Upon my personal experience,I found Waze actually has more complete road information in Malaysia.Anyway,as Nokia Here is just born,it supposes to grow to be better in the coming future.
The Android version of Nokia Here is still under developing.I hope once it covers all major mobile platforms with more users,the map can become a strong competitor to Waze.
I sold off my Motorola Razr Maxx days ago and decided to buy another Android phone to play with.Samsung Galaxy S3 is the most popular and powerful Android phone in the world currently and so it’s in my shopping list.
I visited some physical shops as well as online sellers and found that Lazada Malaysia selling this phone with a fair price.Well,I’ve heard some negative comments on Lazada such as delayed delivery or low efficiency etc.However,I still wanna try it to see if it’s really that bad.Finally I made the order paid by credit card on 14th November 2012 and sat tightly to wait for delivery.
On 16th November 2012,I called Lazada Malaysia customer service to ask when they could deliver my phone and I got a surprising answer,”Sir,your phone has been shipped on 14th November 2012(the day I just ordered) and if no accident,you could receive it by today”.The staff also gave me the tracking number for reference.By the way,they use ‘TaQBin‘ as the carrier service,the No.1 carrier service in Japan.
In the afternoon(about 2pm),the item came.It packed well and nicely.It breaks most of the negative comments,at least this time.Good job,Lazada Malaysia!Here’s the tracking record:
Overall,I have to say this online experience is quite good.However,Lazada Malaysia still has a lot of things to improve,especially the internal system.In my case,you can find in ‘my orders’ there,it shows the status ‘paid,but not shipped’.Even now it still shows the same stuff.They should frequently update the status with tracking information so that customers could easily know the exact delivery date.
I believe most negative comments are based on the fact,but Lazada Malaysia does make their improvements to bring better shopping experience.I will keep my eyes on them.
