Dammit Mudah, scammers again! I’m looking for a new place to rent and of course I’m on Mudah.my. I found this almost too-good-to-be-true apartment for rent in Marina Court. And you know what they say about things that look like they’re too good to be true.

Ziplines and Stuff
The stuff part eluded to in the title of this post is the pile of emotional shit I’ve got going at the moment. There’s light in the darkness; a zipline activity that launched last week and needed documenting. I went to go swing my camera around, as I do, with no real vision of whatContinue reading “Ziplines and Stuff”
KK Taxi Tales
This weekend past I went about Kota Kinabalu as a tourist, participating in the most anticipated activities; seeing sights and visiting islands, and also the most dreaded; entering the bare, exposed savanna that is KK Taxiland. Taking a taxi in Kota Kinabalu is especially grating because taxi drivers are such vultures; patiently waiting for aContinue reading “KK Taxi Tales”
Who Will Call to Buy, or Not, the Car You’re Selling?
With my car tagged and bagged, I have a few experiences to share about selling a car specifically in Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia and specifically using Mudah.com.my.

Ubuntu 12.04 and BCM4312 LP-PHY Not Connecting to Wireless
After nearly a year of touching nothing but Apple Macs, we experienced a sudden computer shortage in the office and I had to breathe life into an old Compaq Presario CQ40. The old machine was heavily bogged down by Windows Vista, so I downloaded Ubuntu 12.04 and was up and running in no time… untilContinue reading “Ubuntu 12.04 and BCM4312 LP-PHY Not Connecting to Wireless”
Bukit Aman Police Station Phishing Scam
The phone rings this morning from a KL number I don’t pay attention to, and it’s a guy speaking slowly in Malay. I hear my name, but understand nothing else, so after his spiel I tell him I don’t speak Malay. “Inspector Teng,” he says he is, “from Bukit Aman.” Oh dear, I think toContinue reading “Bukit Aman Police Station Phishing Scam”
