Example of Con Cases in Design Industries

Assalamualaikum and peace be upon you :) youre now with me dj tekong in slot 999 designer version, where we talk about con and crimes cases committed in multimedia design industries. This cases is between 2 forumers in lowyat.net, which is one of them are running sportscenter(referring as The Boss) and another one is a designer but still a student ( solid snake before he grad in foxhound ). check this out.

so the big boss coming into lowyat.net art n design board, conducting a LOGO design Competition. so around 5 designers ( all from foxhound ) as i recalled joined and submitted thier artwork. after that.. got announced the winner with thier logo being showed off. ( at a time of this article was wrote, the previous winner logo has been removed ad named as disgusted ). a day after it, suddenly the boss announced that they got a winner and he’s not from foxhound. the winner didnt even came from lowyat.net community. and the boss offer the same money amount RM50 to all of the previous winner and giving the grand winner the 10k worth of advertisement job.

so the winner, previous winner from foxhound that is solid snake, pissed off because u know lah.. suddenly got another man winning the competition after he was announced for no 1. this is the same scenario if let say all older team of Power Ranger got blue, yellow, red, green and pink fighting the monster together and suddenly appear power ranger white.. even the viewer will go WTF man!!! WTH is this? yes the white ranger still fighting the monster but u knowlah.. the older ranger must be piss off first and they only calmed down when got offer an equivalent robot that as cool as white ranger. but that was not the scenario. all the older ranger are not being appreciated by just offering repair payment to thier old chapalang robots. must be angry lah kan

so mr solid snake making a topic in Kopitiam Lowyat.net to seek opinions and let people know of mistakes and lessons he had. and i would suggest to beginners in design industries, to seek advice from person that have experience. what are methods to secure our rights as designers. as another forumer inside said, even a student they still have thier value and to take advantage of them is just so unprofessional. so please.. even to anyone actually.. be cautious as world isnt safe anymore.

so tha’s all for today slot 999 designer version. may the creative minds be with you.

Emily ( Vice President ) Me ( Technical Manager [ Website ] ) and G ( President ) — all oldies meh.

after 3 years serving as DJ in MMU DJ Club, i was invited ( as VIP woohooooo ) to RMMU day Mini-Concert that was organized to celebrate Radio MMU birthday. This year it has been 8 years of our club serving as an official broadcaster to MMU. We have 4 language that is English Chinese Malay and Mandarin serve to all students. I’ve deejaying since Alpha, my first year in mmu starting 2003. On-aired in various slot starts with Forum XY with DJ TK, News with DJ Kim, Prebiu Filem with DJ Ashraf n DJ Nina, Animetech with DJ Adam, and successfully established Slot Fitrah with DJ Somehow. Served as Technical Manager during RMMU Day ’04 and a Technical Manager ( Website Development ) for Radio MMU session 05/06. Gain one award in MMU Awards for the Best Club Website last year and this year, in my final year, I decide to step down as just On-Call DJ since being constrained with Final Year Projects and also several personal commitments.

But being in the family for 3.. no almost 4 years have teach me a lot. Audio technicalities, Deejaying etiquettes and the biggest thing as developing my portfolio with Radio MMU. All for free but that’s how my skill grown up. Even it is more to personal desires to build up something, but if without demand, i maybe wouldnt do that. So for ppl who read this article especially FCM-ers, try to seek a chance to establish your works. Find something that you can contribute to your club, no matter how many the club that you’ve joined, by any chance and by all means, contribute to them in whatever you can. FOM can try to manage activities, FOE or FIT can work also in things they interested with and FCMers, try to develop a unique, branding, or everything related to that programme.

I’m so proud, so proud that once i was in Radio MMU together with countless good and kind people that i know. Happy 8th Birthday Radio MMU!!!! May the headphones, microphones and internet streaming be with you.

Deathnote – The Movie #1 Review

Last thursday right after proposal defence for final year project presentation, me putra syawal and fendi going out to watch deathnote the movie… and my rating is …. 6/10. first of all, why they didnt use and copy exactly from the manga??? i dont mind the establishing shot with all the deaths all over the jail but raito found the deathnote around trash area? haih.. and then shibuimaro takuo also suppose to died beacuse of an accident and not by sudden heart attacks at road. Who the hell is shiori ?? Misora Naomi suppose to met Raito at Police headquarters when he want to pass on the clothes to his father.

I understand some of minor parts like when Raito hide the deathnote under desk doesnt need to be explained because of the movie time constrained, but messing up with the plots and storyline does effect the manga fans.. i’m reading the manga first after introduced by Azim. and the hero is not so cool as the original Raito. others are ok. but i give it 6 since suddenly Putra interested with Deathnote.. hahahahah he watching movie first before manga. no wonder la.

When i wake up this morning i receive this message from roshfaizal. it is about our local movie current situation here. He once teamed up with me in Seksis Assignment as art director and very skillful in artistic visuals. this is what the url that he forward to me.

Di saat2 industri filem malaysia tgh hanyut & tak muak2 dgn film2 sampah.. lawak… cinta yg tak berkesudahan… Industri filem thai bangkit lagi dgn sebuah produksi epik sejarah melayu-patani yg aku kira patut dibikin oleh produksi tempatan. Filem tersebut merupakan sebuah advencer dan legenda Permaisuri atau Ratu Langkasuka, sebuah kerajaan Melayu-Pattani di utara tanah air Malaysia. Era keemasan Pattani muncul setelah kejatuhan Melaka ke tangan Portugis pada tahun 1511. Empat ratu telah memerintah Pattani: Ratu Hijau (1584-1616), Ratu Biru (1616-1624), Ratu Ungu (1624-35) and Ratu Kuning(1635-86). Sekitar 1688-90, pemerintahan Pattani diambilalih oleh kerabat diraja , scenario ini bertukar sekitar tahun 1730 kerabat Pattani datang memerintah Kelantan. (aku sendiri berketurunan Ratu Kuning). Aku agak kesal bila filem sebegini tidak dihasilkan oleh produksi tempatan. Selepas filem Puteri gunung Ledang, seperti tiada lagi initiatif untuk mengambil elemen2 budaya & sejarah melayu yg masih bertimbun untuk di tonjolkan di layar perak. Aku dah malas & cukup muak utk ceritakan tentang senario industri film tempatan sekarang ini.. semuanya sudah sedia maklum… Bila senario ini akan berubah? Bila pembikin filem merajinkan diri membuat kajian mendalam sebelum menulis/menghasilkan sesebuah filem? Bila produser berhenti menanyakan “boleh jual ke filem ni?” dan mula bertanya”ada kualiti ke filem ni?” Atau memang tak akan berubah sampai bila2 sehingga habis semua khazanah sejarah, seni & budaya tempatan dikorek/dikikis/dijilat & didagangkan oleh produksi luar… Yang sedih gak tu, bila kita lihat character design diorang, (siap showcase drawing lagi tu!) kita dapati banyak elemen2 sejagat yang kita pun ada seperti dokoh, pending, sanggul.. agak sedih sebab kita terkena tempias. Pensyarah aku penah berkata punca utama rancangan2 realiti dan filem2 seperti yang byk membanjiri market selera tempatan adalah disebabkan sifat majoriti bumiputra yang memang cenderung ke arah sorak sore. Sejarah membuktikan dari asal usul kita memang gemarkan pesta berpesta. Itulah sebabnya hanya segelintir sahaja yang ghairah tentang ilmu dan benda2 serius berkait dgn budaya. Lihatlah buku2 ilmiah tentang apresiasi estetik tradisi dan paling senang pasal persembahan wayang kulit. Semuanya nama-nama orang asing yang mempelopori sampai menjadi pakar ttg budaya kita. Walhal orang kita sendiri tak tahu langsung apa yang kita ada. Agak malu juga sebab “Lanka” ni kita pun kongsi sejarah sejak perkembangan evangelist epik Ramayana dahulu. (Sri Lanka, Langkasuka, Langkapuri, Langkawi.. panjang ceritanya) Tengoklah set design diorang. Bersungguh.. Rasanya situasi ini takkan berubah selagi kita leka disorong bantal 2 khayal.. http://www.cinemasia.co.th/en/press/lung-gasuka.html#

True doesnt it?  What do you say ?

COD stealers

COD means Cash On Delivery. A terms used when u order something and have to pay to the bearer. COD is one of a bit safe way to trade on online presence since we can meet with the person and test it at that place like last time i buy a graphic card for my friend from forum member evogenix. he insistly told me to check at his house and i just follow and check the cards working good. that way much more safer and guaranteed. I’m more prefer COD rather than postage for itmes above RM100.As usual, I was surfing lowyat.net forum to search some stuff and .. apparently, i found out this page.

http://forum.lowyat.net/index.php?showtopic=364186 

this MOFO, actually ran of with my Chaintech AA6800 Turbo while doing a COD at night. He, a tall & thin malay guy, fair skin, wears a black framed glasses and smokes, had told me that he was interested in my card @ rm450 and COD at SS19/1H. I asked him to COD at 6pm but he tells me he’s sitting for SPM this year and he forced to stay at home, so he can only ‘sneak-out’ from his place at 9pm. He initially asked me to meet him at the RC track and dealing was set at 9.30pm. However, feeling that the track is dark and damp wasn’t such a good idea, so i told him to meet me near the main road in front of SS19/1H junction. He comes 15 minutes late, walking whilst smoking, greets me and i get out of my car along with the card. He attempts to open the box and i tell him that its drizzling and that i will take an umbrella out. I then show him the card and he asks me few questions on the card. After placing the card back into the box, he then talks to me on some hardware mods not related to the deal. A few minutes of talking, this ******* bolts away with the card in his clutches. I jump into the car and chased him until he runs left into another road, i then shout ‘curi’ ‘dia curi’ which the local neighbourhood guards nearby noticed. he goes into a small alley where the car can’t enter and i take my car to the other end chasing him whilst the guard was also chasing. the persuit ends when the chase ends up in a park seperated by a large monsoon drain and although i tried going to the other end, he was nowhere to be see. Nevertheless, i return to the scene of the crime and i am so delighted to see the security guards holding my card. He told me that that guy was slowing down and was panting and even the guard was tired himself right until that guy left the graphic card and continued running. I am thankful to the guards and they will be rewarded for their deed. As for the crook, he ran off, and wasn’t found.

I would like to urge my fellow brothers and sisters to organize a proper cod or dealing b4 rushing into a deal.

-COD in a busy area that you are familiar with
-Ideally in a restaurant
-Don’t COD at night
-Don’t deal with new members or few post count
-Don’t get distracted with talking
-Get the money then have your conversation
-Have a friend or two to be with you

SO guys.. be cautious.. it isnt safe anymore..
