Fine Art Storage

There are many of our possessions that we regard as precious. However, few are as precious as fine art. If you are ever thinking of moving, storing or displaying your masterpieces, you should tell yourself only one thing: Don't take any chances!

Instead, you should put your worries to rest and take advantage of the various services available to help you with your needs. One company that offers such a service is Mind's Eye. They are known for their fine art storage and you need not worry about your invaluable items being mishandled.

They offer an extensive array of the finest services and you need not worry about the budget either. They will customise the services to youor art, needs and budget! It encompasses crating, transporting, storing and showcasing virtually any kind of fine art.

They are quite experienced and their clients include museums and collectors of all kinds, personal and corporate alike. In fact, you should take a look at their website. It is very creatively crafted. Definitely one of the best I've seen. There's just so much a paid review is able to reveal to you. I suggest that you jump right over to their website and judge them for yourself.

First Fill Up After Petrol Price Hike

This is my first petrol fill up after petrol prices were increased by over 40% to RM2.70 on June 5th.

Malaysia Petrol Price RM2.70

So many four digits to choose from! If any of you strike lottery, you're paying for my petrol for a year! :P

No, I wasn't one of those who queued up to fill up their tanks before the price were increased. I had actually refueled a few days before and I was never one to queue up for ages, burning precious time and fossil fuels at that, just so you could save a little before you inevitably have to pay a higher price for future refills. However, this time around I do not blame those who actually queued up since the increase was really drastic.

It was a painful experience for me too since I only had to pay around RM50 for a full tank before the recent petrol price hike and it's not like my income is all that great. I still remember not having to pay more than RM30 for a full tank ten years ago! However, I do not believe in subsidies as it actually causes more issues than actually resolving them. In fact, I've been calling for a total withdrawal of petrol subsidies for years now. If this was done years ago before petrol prices skyrocketed to US$138 per barrel, we wouldn't have been so badly hit. We would have been more economical with our petrol usage and would have relied less on the finite fuel source.

Since I've been very careful with my petrol usage for years now, I won't really feel the pinch of the recent petrol hike although it still does translate into less money in my pockets. In fact, I'm glad I kept faith with my SLK instead of upgrading to another car. I bet it's worth more than what it was before June 5th with many scouring for smaller and more fuel-efficient cars! ;)

Anyone of you interested in my Small Little Kancil? I'll willingly part with it if anyone comes up with a good offer. RM18k, anyone? ;)

Business owners know this fact and one of things on top of their lists when setting up their businesses is how to incorporate information technology into their various businesses. Although they recognise the need for embracing information technology, they may not know how information technology can actually help them.

Firefox 3: Download Day 2008

The new release of our beloved browser Firefox 3.0 will be released soon enough and the guys at Mozilla have a little something in mind for the official launching. They are planning to set a record for the most downloaded software over the period of 24 hours and I believe this is very much achievable. As I blog, there are over half a million pledges and it will only increase exponentially from here.

Firefox 3: Download Day 2008

They don't have a release date yet but we can make a pledge to download the new browser on the day which they will announce later at the pledge map page. Currently, Malaysia is lacking way behind the other countries at less than 3,000 pledges. It's quite promising though since it has increased two-fold from the time I pledged a few days ago. At that time, even Singapore was ahead of us but we've overtaken them now albeit just a little advantage.

I've really enjoy using the browser over the likes of Internet Explorer, Safari and Opera. It's fast, it's safe, it's simply amazing. With the help of useful addons, it really makes my internet browsing a breeze rather than some horribly constipated experience.

The new browser is promising many improvements but that shouldn't stop you from changing your current browser to the current Firefox 2. Trust me, you'll never look at Internet Explorer the same way again after trying Mozilla Firefox. All you have to do to get the software is to click on the banner above this post that will assist you in downloading the best browser to date, IMHO.

Oh, and don't forget to pledge! Let's make history together. :)
