Back then, flash animation, video streaming, or even audio files weren't that common on web pages. Portals belongs to limited numbers of companies or organization. CMS and Blogs, a concept nobody could think of.
The WaybackMachine collect, manage, and archive website versions form all over the world.
See how your favorite website looks like, years ago.
Ex. see google in its prototype or yahoo in the 90's.
Look at the original Netscape, and so much more.
Go check it out. It's fun. :D

I'm sure for most of you.. it's time to go shopping!!
I'm not against that entirely, but just a friendly reminder, Make a Budget!
List down all the things u need and all ur monthly commitments. Set aside the money for all those bills & payments. And most importantly, save some for 'the rainy day'. This is a must!! Otherwise, u'll be in lots of trouble when the time comes.
In this post, I'd like to share a new service provided by maybank. But this is strictly for Malaysian's 'bumipitera'. So, for those concerned, please do check it out.
A new service via Maybank2u. You can now purchase ASB units. The catch is, you have to pay RM1 per transaction.
It's quite reasonable, considering you could skip long queue at the banks.
So, what are you waiting for.
Jom beli ASB banyak-banyak. :D
How to do it??
It takes 3 steps to get it done. But lets start from the beginning, shall we.. :D
First of all, log on to the system..
The homepage will be displayed upon successful access to the system. (If you got problem with this, please contact Maybank2u directly.)
Here, select Investment (highlighted in yellow box)
Next, select ASNB Unit Trust (also highlighted)
You will be directed to a Declaration page. Tick the check box below and click next.
This is where the actual "3 steps" begin.
You'll need to key in the amount of unit you wanted to buy (in case anyone ask, 1 unit equals RM1.. :D)
Next, select which account would you like to transfer money from. (This applies only for those with multiple MBB accounts)
Then, key-in your ASB membership number.
After that, u need to click on the drop-down menu to select the product name, which happens to be, the one and only, Amanah Saham Bumiputera.
You'll need to clik continue afterwards.
Step "2 of 3" is where you'll need to provide TAC, to confirm your identity. Once requested, the TAC will be send directly to your mobile phone. As soon as you've recieved your TAC and entered to the system, you'll need to click the confirm button.
The final step "3 of 3" should display a Successful message, which look like something like this.
This means, your'e done. :D
Now that you've secured your future, you can finaly go out. :D
Happy shopping!! :D
The mechanism, they use "caesium oscillator" which calculate "a second as the duration of 9,192,631,770 cycles of radiation corresponding to the transition between two energy levels of the ground state of the caesium-133 atom".
In layman's term, it is a very precise clock!!
"Time is precious, and accurate timekeeping is vital to everyday Malaysian life, as well as to international and high technology activities. On August 5, 1992, the Malaysian Cabinet appointed the National Metrology Laboratory to be the national timekeeper.
The national atomic time scale is established and maintained using five Caesium atomic clocks, two of which are high performance and three of which are standard performance. These five atomic clocks are compared to one another in order to detect any abnormality or instability. One of the clocks is designated as the reference clock. By virtue of its participation in the International Bureau of Weights and Measures GPS common view time transfer, the Malaysian atomic timescale is traceable to the International Atomic Timescale."

Most posts on blogs suggested that investment using borrowed money is high risk and simply put, not worth it.
I myself have borrowed money to invest. Perhaps, I'm not the expert to talk about this, but for me, a high risk investment is far better than no investment at all.
