How many times have you been in a tight situation? How many times you need to improvise with what you have?

Last week, I have to pick up my medical check-up result, and I got X-Ray films to carry.

Problem: I’m riding motorcycle. You can’t fold the X-Ray films.

So I empty the water from my Rubbermaid chug bottle, and filled it with curled X-Ray films, like this

Since the film is inside the plastic, I had no problem and also, the orange cloth is the shock-dampener + water-absorption material inside the bottle should there still left a bit of water that might contact with my X-Ray films.

And i was able to carry this document on a motorcycle that speeds at 100KM/h

Tissue Tips

Hello mobilewarriors and visitors. Quite some time I didn’t write any articles. World’s been busy, and same as me.

So here goes article. A quick article I’ve wrote, Tissue Tips.


If you realize, if you come to every cafes or even fast food chains, they will give tissues. Tissues being served for your convenience. Aside from wiping our mouth and hand, tissue can be most useful to one mobile warriors. Usually, the shops will give you at least 2-3 piece of 2 ply (helaian) tissues. From my observation, unused/extra tissues will be left untouched by customer and those unused tissues, usually, following the restaurant code of conduct ( I was a Shakey’s Pizza service crew before so I know ) will be thrown away.

I’m serious. It is same as leftovers. Untouched tissues will be thrown away. ( I didn’t know if there’s restaurant keeping it )

How to fix this?

Cafe’s Discount Card Comparison

Aha. Now that I guess most of you benefitted from the last Officekami Discount Meal Sheet last week, I believe you find this useful too, Discount Card Comparison.

Clicking on the page will view the bigger version of the picture. Alternatively, you can also download Officekami Discount Card Comparison PDF version and stick it on your partition wall, if you still not practicing #mobileoffice :p (because if you mobileoffice, you’ll miss that partition wall )

The resource of that Old Town White Coffee Citizen Card promotion was taken from Longlibra here. And the card picture is from Mietos. Since I don’t have Old Town Card.

Looking forward to hear your feedback, and spread the news fellas!

Discount Meal Sheet

Apparently I have much time to kill so I created this based on my experience

Click on the image above to see bigger version, And you may download PDF version (A4) so you could stick it on your office space.Now download > Officekami Discount Meal Sheet.

Few things to take account to

KFC & McDonalds = Non-ergonomic chairs. Noise, and may only have few plugs ( but certain McDonalds have a lot of plug )

Secret Recipe = Their WiFi is protected by Streamyx Zone. Lately, they open a connection. Kindly ask the server first.

Old Town = Non-ergonomic chairs. Few exclusive oldtown do have comfy chairs. One of it is Bangsar South.

Coffee Bean = their Breakfast meal only coffee/tea-refillable before 11AM.

San Francisco Coffee = Non-uniformed rules on ‘Buy One Free One’ (BOFO). In Menara UOA Bangsar, you can buy BOFO after lunch. In Ampang Point, BOFO only available during weekends.

Above all, kindly ask the waiter if there’s WiFi available at the outlet.

If you’re a great graphic designer, then feel free to redesign this cheat sheet. It is under attributions/share-alike. Just credit back us okay :) And feel free to reblog this :D

App Showdown – Teambox

The second App Showdown is Teambox. I myself tried few Team collaboration tools. Namely Bantam Live. Then last two weeks I remember fellow Mobilewarriors Arzumy/Hakim Albsrawy twitted about Teambox. Since Flavert/Weddingkami work remotely in every own spaces, we need few stuff like virtual whiteboards or service to share project updates.

Since I’m a fan of desktop apps, most of screenshot is desktop app version. Don’t worry, still the same with webview.

Let me start with an Overview Panel when you login to your Teambox

When you login, you can see the overview of your Projects. Definition: Projects in Teambox is a project that being run in a company. However, since we want to use the apps for free, I decided that Weddingkami is a Project. And all projects received by clients will be defined as Tasks.

Protip: BOFO San Francisco Coffee

At certain San Francisco Coffee in Malaysia, they have Buy One Free One (BOFO) promo. But it is not same in all branches. Ampang Point have this promo only on weekends but ends before 8PM. And Menara UOA Bangsar have this promo during weekdays which is after lunch. The deal is to buy any of Extreme Frappes, and get another for free. Must be either Regular or Large. While this BOFO may seem normal, let me take it to the extreme.

What you can do is, buy the Extreme promo (Buzz, latte, Mocha, vanilla, chocolate ) and get another one for free. Then, ask the barista to keep another one inside the freezer. So you can work up to 1-3 hours with one cup. Then, since we need some slight rest, go outside the cafe and told the barista that ‘I’ll be back’. After taking your fun time, go back to the cafe, ask for the one that they kept, and then continue working.

Be aware that the coffee inside the freezer are more intense and strong. And DO NOT kept the coffee with your skipped cream, coz your cream will be a bit funny. Saw that before, and didn’t know how it taste, since I skip the cream always. And with this method, I successfully work for 7-8 hours.

I’m not being cheap. I’ve become cost effective :p – As what @cerventus from Malaysia Entrepreneurs said :p

I’ll post more and more Cost Effective tip here, so keep coming to this blog. If you have some, come, share it :)
