About Me

Hey how U doin?

How I Can Help

One of my biggest passions in life is Computers/I.T. My daytime job is as an Internet Entrepreneur and so I have an understanding of how website business models should really be like. And so reviewing sites that are informative and useful to surfers worldwide is something that I would love to do here. I try to provide brutally honest reviews so there is a real knowledge of the website. I do have my own few sites, one of them listed below, please feel free to check it out if you like.

Interests

Surfing the net, music, movies, martial arts, reading, watching TV...etc

Well I was searching for some flexible jobs on the net and I saw an ad for mysteryshoppers required in London. I applied and got the job and as my first assignment, I had to report on the Western Union shop near my area. My salary was going to be £400 for every assignment which is great money (thats why I agreed) and was sent a cheque for £3000. I had to send the remaining £2600 to an individual who's details they had provided me in philippines. Apparently, it was good friday weekend when they sent me the cheque and we had 2 consecutive bank holidays last 2 weeks cuz of the royal wedding as well. So my bank said its gonna take some time to clear the cheque. The boss lady was very demanding that the report be done on fast and didnt seem to get that i don't control the bank and way they operate in clearing cheques. Anyways, I just found out from the bank that the cheque had been bounced and also now they are investigating possible theft of money on the person who sent me the cheque. Luckily im in the clear cuz i didnt really do anything. Also when i sent the bosslady an email to inform her of the bounced cheque, the communication just stopped completely. Shes since then (which is like a 4 days) not replied to me and i don't think she ever would. In all her communication however, she had given details of her name and USA Atlanta addie but neva revealed the sitename. Cuz of my extra superior scaminvestigating skills i managed to track down this site which has her details and offers the mystery shopping jobs. When you look at the site, it seems all very professional and cool but obviously it all a big scam. I realise even more of this as a scam cuz all the mysteryshopping companies offering jobs are paying around £20-£50 per assignment and i was going to get £400. Obviously she wanted me to send the £2600 out of my account which neva happened. I just hope that the bank catches them and does somethin about it. Just another craigslist scammer to be honest. And there's even more to this today, i got an email from a girl who wants to get with me and when i check out the ip address of the girl (from the email), damn she uses the same ip as the mysteryshopper scammer and same location in america (sunnyvale california) and same internet provider(yahoo/inktomi). Just different name and different yahoo id. I can't believe there is so much scam going on now in the net. This is just one of the mysteryshopping company that has approached me which is a scam, i found another one last week from gumtree. check my review for that supposedly professional and famous site of UK.

British Gas

British Gas

Ive neva used them as my energy provider but theyre the one of the most appalling and unprofessional company of UK. Before I moved into my flat, another tenant was living there and he used britishgas. Its been 5years since hes moved out, and i still keep getting letters at my address under his name and account. Ive made several calls to them to inform them that the person doesnt live here for 5years and to stop sending me mails. Ive forwarded over 50mails by post to return to the guy at his new address but they seem to neva get it. They still send their engineer to check my gas supply every year and Ive told him every year the same thing, that i don't use them and theyve got to delete the details for the last 5years. I just can't believe how unprofessional they are. Its the most simplest thing to delete the account if the person has moved on or chase him whereva he lives as this kinda info is readily available anyway. But they can't do this one little simple thing. Im just glad i don't use them as a supplier. Neva can believe such appalling stupid service.

Ever wanted to make your own site, without the programming knowledge - yes and with FLASH? And completely FREE? Well go on to this site, and you can. I know there is plenty of sites offering free website builders and templates similar but this one offers FLASH on addition to all the templates and you can add your own videos and images and stuff as well. I havent personally used them but ive bookmarked them for my future use most def cuz i would love to make my own site FREE which looks really cool. Theyve got like scores of sites made using their service so you can see how good they really are.

Ever wanted to make your own hosting server using your pc at home? Well for those in the know, apache servers can be run on your pc and then you can host your sites so technically youre not paying someone to host them = saving money yearly. You MUST MUST have the pro knowledge of this however or know someone who can help you. Ive downloaded it with the help of a mate but there are few gliches with windows7 that im having personally cuz i don't know much of it and havnt really spent so much time with it. Nothing that can't be solved im sure. But its a site worth mentioning cuz its one of the most popular software in the industry.

This site is GNU Image Manipulation software site where you can download this GIMP software for image authoring, image retouching and other changes to your existing images or to create a new image and add some nice style. The software is completely FREE which is fab and ive used it and its great and easy to use. You can download and get all the info from this official site basically. Check it out if you need image manipulation software FREE. No virus no spyware no malware i can say safely.

Really good one to get a few basic chinese symbols for certain vocabulary and phrases. Not the most extensive like chinese-word.com but certainly useful.

Really a great site to find chinese symbols and even calligraphy for those interested in this. I needed some chinese calligraphy symbols & translations for my clothing designs and had no problems getting them from here.

Great site. I wanted to find out where I can sell my secondhand and some unwanted new gifts and Preloved showed up on the Google search. I don't like eBay cuz there I neva can sell at the price I want, its for absolute bargain hunters who won't pay reasonable money and the hassle of arranging the delivery is too much for me. Here on Preloved, however its absolutely FREE to advertise for a private seller which is perfect and its all very simple & straightforward. You can be a buyer or seller or both on this one, but the listings are completely free if not a business. And after listing some items and waiting patiently, Ive managed to get some money for some of the stuff that had been just gathering dust. Absolutely fab. Highly recommended.

I joined them a few years back cuz I so much in love with the oriental look and when i saw the photos of really stunning chinese girls on this site, i thought i would give it a try. The site itself ive got no problems with, theyre pretty well managed and professional, provide translated messages as well which is great and big necessity, a little on the expensive side i would say though. I made contacts with many chinese girls(infact i was mobbed), but unfortunately most of them were just there to chat on the site, none of them spoke much english and so were not confident bout chatting outside the site apart from one girl who was really poor in english as well. So she will always be the one that got away sadly as well.:( Cuz they can't chat outside the site, its too too damn expensive cuz like you gotta pay £20 for like 3 messages one to send, one to read and then one to reply to her but then you have to fork out another £20 to read her reply and so forth. So unless youve got like millions piled up in bank, don't use them. Its just the way the girls prefer to communicate with me cuz i speak little chinese and they spoke little english(and on here you get translated msgs without which the conversations are impossible). Someone who spoke chinese, would be married like in 10mins and be a very very happy man. The girls on this site, would send you message or interest first as well so you don't have to worry. But ive got to admit the women here are absolutely stunning, i don't think there is another chinese site which has so much beauty. Sadly i spent lot of the dosh and did not end up with a chinese bride...But my review will still remain cool for the site cuz of the beauty theyve got on there and also theyre professional...:))....I would certainly keep using the site if only they drop the price for credits or increase the credits for same price cuz these girls are so so nice and i know i could have been married to a chinese beauty...not so however :( IF chnlove management is reading thz, please take the hint. :))

AHFB - Advanced HTML for Beginners, as the title suggests its got everythin and anythin to do with HTML and its absolutely great site. I needed to get some info re how to make search engines and i found them from goggle. Theyve got cool forums of members who are always willing to help you out as well. Its an absolute delight to find a site with all the info i needed in one site basically. Check it out if youre HTML crazy or need to just learn anythin bout it or web domains and stuff....really cool site.

Just found this dating site, its completely FREE and its much much better than the other free ones out there like smooch or plentyoffish where ive just met some scammers (no really) The best thing bout Oasis is that you will neva get bombared by messages from everyone all the time, you get to choose if you want to block someone or contact them. So i think its fab and its got like worldwide members which is cool.Recommend it if youre lookin for free dating site in any case. I think theyve got the unique idea of this choice of blocking the member who sends you a msg and you can just refuse them earlyon so its very convenient. Ideal for women who like want also to have certain preference over who sends them msg cuz theyve got like a good filter as well as the block feature... :))

Ive found this site just recently whilst surfing and apparently its similar to other custom tshirt sites, nothing much pretty different i guess. But what i like bout this one, is that they have a permanent slogan for typetee competition. You can add a new slogan everyday for voting which takes place for a week, and if you get highest votes then you get $2500 cash + $500 for every print of that slogan tshirt +$200 cash or $500 voucher to use in store. So its really great for everyone who has a creative fun streak and can make a new slogan everyday and be in with a chance of winning fast easy money. Their slogan direct link is www.threadless.com/slogans
Go check it out.....if youve got what it takes...:))

Theyve got FREE latest Bollywood movies to watch online, not just the most recent ones but go back 20years. Pretty good links most of them are reliable, however as with any free online streaming site, not all links work. But now theyre part of my routine wheneva I want to watch a bollywood movie free. Recommended.

Great site to put any ads for business or personal FREE.....and you even get an opportunity to renew the ad automatically rather than having to rewrite the whole thing again just by the click of the link which they send out to you whenever your ad is near expiry. They're really good cuz Gumtree has started charging for business ads whilst this one is still free. They used my ad to provide testimonials for their own positive campaign against scammers. Its been great advertising with them personally cuz Ive had many people look at my ads as well, they got the stats all there. If you get a response, they send you an email to let you know. Extremely professional and very positively involved with their clients. Really fab. Need more publicity i think to make it bigger in UK.

Great site for any fan of wushu...you will get free virtual instructions for different moves, kicks, punches....i mean the complicated ones right....'the fancy moves' of wushu and theyve recently added other martial art styles....and also got other fitness information like nutrition calculators,etc....good to learn the howto from the videos and then go to the park and practice....cuz i don't think youre gonna learn these fancy moves in the west in many classes....you would really have to go to china to learn them....so great if youre interested in these things like me...:))

I like them...i found them last year when my sis needed a specific perfume which i couldnt find on amazon or in any highstreet shops....and they had it and also at the cheapest price than anywhere else...and this site has got lots of fragrances men and women really cheap priced and their delivery within Uk is only £1.95 which is cheaper than amazon or other sites...

I like them cuz ive used them to buy my business cards few years ago when i start my selfemployed work.....did i say buy??? well i meant i actually got 250 FREE yes completely free cards from their site offer, ok you don't really get a big variety of choice in the design of the cards, just got to pick one from the few but the designs are quite cool.....and also this site offers tshirt printing, mug printing, coasters, etc....ive just ordered a keychain from my uploaded photo from them and it was so reasonably priced....

I really like this site, its got all the info related to worldwide holidays and festivals and the best part of this site which i love the most is the dedicated great detailed info of chinese horoscopes.....i do love info for chinese animal signs cuz i think its cool to know....not really believe in it....but you would be really surprised as to how accurate the chinese signs describe each individual personality....its fun for just learning bit more bout it all (if you have great affinity for chinese culture like me)....and lil secret, im a rabbit apparently and this is the year of rabbit....hurrah....:))....whats your animal sign?????
