I Found out What I Was Missing and Made Some Changes

I often do not check my spam box in my email program. It is not that I am against doing that, but I often forget to do it. I recently learned that people and companies you deal with may be sending information to you that hits your spam box, and then I realized I needed to start checking it more often. So, I did that least week, and found an email from a local company that offered me less expensive utility rates and asked me to click here for more information in the email. All I can say is that …

Security Systems Are Definitely Affordable

When I bought my house a few years ago, I didn’t even consider getting a home security system. I didn’t research home security prices then, but I just felt that it was going to be something that I simply could not afford. When my neighbor’s house was broken into a few months ago, I knew that it was time to finally look into it though. When I first moved in, it was just me, and I felt that I could take care of myself. Now though, I have a wife and a set of one year old twins, and I …

Big Bad Wolf Books 2012

The Big Bad Wolf Books sale is back! Last year I went to the event with a friend where it was held at MAEPS, Serdang. This year, they are holding it at the Mines Convention Center, which is actually nearer this time as it is only around 5 – 10 minutes from where I am currently staying. They claim that there will be 3 million books available at ridiculously high discounts….that is certainly a significant increase from last year’s event which stood at around a million books. I bought a hand-trolley specifically for this event, because last year I didn’t …

Back after a long hiatus

Yeah, I know it is not an excuse for me not to update the blog, but I was stretched really thin with the things I had to do for the past several weeks. From maintaining my directory network to getting ideas for featured articles to be published on SuaraMalaysia.com, I have been really busy. And oh, did I mention that I have a son now? Above is a photo of me with my mom holding my son, Mu’awiyah Rayyan Nieshaem. He was born on 12.10.2011.

Karnival Karangkraf 2011

For those of you who are book lovers, you would be interested to know that media publisher Karangkraf is holding their Karnival Karangkraf 2011 at their premises in Shah Alam, Selangor. The event is taking place this weekend, from 28th to 30th January 2011. To be honest, it is of little interest to me as I am not really a fan of what Karangkraf publishes, apart from Majalah i. But if they are your thing, there’s nothing to stop you from going for it. All other details are in the poster above.

Revived at last!

So I decided to dredge this blog from the depths of development hell, give it a fresh look with a nice new WordPress theme, and turn it into a personal project of mine. You can actually read about the story of this revival effort here. Oh yes, I have renamed the blog to “The Bibliaholic Blog”, of which the genesis behind the name you can see here. To cut a very long story short, I will post reviews about books, books and nothing else but books. Of course, since I do pride myself as a Muslim internet activist, most of …
