How to make copyright symbol © for your blog or website

I have been using the wrong symbol all this while for copyright ©. I have frequently used the @ for copyright symbol for almost four years and I did not bother to check until someone pointed it out.

The following methods should work for all PC keyboards when you need to type a copyright © symbol. It should work on WYSIWYG html programs when you insert copyright © symbols and of course any word processor where you need to make a copyright © symbol with your keyboard from standard fonts installed.
Now let us begin.

Hold down Ctrl and Alt at the same time and press C ;   Ctrl+Alt+C

Or try the following;

Hold down Alt and type 0169 on the number pad (right hand side of your keyboard) Alt+0169

And for mac user try the following;

Hold down Option at the same time and press 'g'to get the copyright symbol.


Miss You In A Heartbeat

This songs is very touching and sentimental. Eventhough it quite old and considered classic, it still have that ballad kind of mood that makes you wanna to sing along.

Long Long Way to Go

I have been Def Leppard Fan for many years, in fact since their album Hysteria, which is one of my favourite albums. The sound coming out from this band is fantastic. I considered it a modern heavy metal due to the use of Electronic Drum machine and others electronic music gadget. One of the greatest band groups of the eighties. Def Leppard is still active till today.

How to get more money at the beginning of every month

This is very common to most people. Not having enough at the beginning of every month (money leftover after paying all that debts). It almost does not make any sense at all. We worked just enough to pay the bills and food and not much extra left to buy the thing that you always wanted. Not forgetting that boring routine job we are force to do every day and at the end of the day, we are getting no way. Time fly very fast. I still remember the day I utter the word “financially sound” 15 years ago and now I am still the same old me. The only different is that I am getting old.

Then almost everyday you start question to yourself “when is this going to stop?” “When am I starting getting enough money to retire comfortably?” This, my friend will never be answered, believe me, I am in the same boat as you. If we don’t stop complaining and asking that same stupid question we will end up going no way but still at the same spot as before. So, my friends let us get rid of this nonsense and start do something, anything to improve our current situation. I am very sure there are many options to make money legally. We have to try and look for it.

Complaining isn’t going to help you to get more money or at least improve your financial problem. Don’t waste your time.

Let us do some thinking like, how to make your hard-earned ringgit (RM) stretch further by adopting a smart and healthier attitude toward money management and be coming a careful money spender.

Let us begin by looking at where all the money goes (out of our pocket).


a) Extravagant life style: going out for expensive dinner, eating out more frequently (almost everyday), Spend more at restaurant. Buying the expensive designer clothes (even though we know we cannot afford but for style, who cares), buying unnecessary gadget i.e. expensive latest nokia handphone with TV tuner, MP3 player, 5MP camera and so on. The list can go on.

b) Gambling: Buying the 4D and hoping to win the 1st, 2nd and 3rd prize for couple of thousands and then keep on saying the word over and over again “if I won the 1st prize, I am going to spend the money buying all the thing that I have always wanted”. My friend, gambling can be very addictive than smoking or drinking or womanizing. It can drain your saving or whatever amount of money you have like water rushing out of the tap. The simple advice is keep away from gambling except during festive season such as Gong Xi Fa Chai where the gambling must end on Chap Goh Meh.

c) Cigarettes: If you are a heavy smoker, you might not understand the economic significance of a daily packet of cigarettes over a lifetime (if you live longer to see it for yourself). The cost of a packet of cigarettes nowadays is roughly between RM 8.00 to RM10.00 (depending of the brand). If you smoked a packed a day, in a month you have to fork out at least RM 240.00 and in a year you may have spend about RM 2880.00. That my friend a lot of money. If you invested the money, instead you may be getting a handsome return. However, it is easier say than done. To be able to quit smoking is a very hard thing to do to some people but hey, you have to sacrifice something to gain isn’t it.

d) Paying too much interest: I believe most of us have a credit card (at least one). In fact, it is one of the most valuable plastic card you often carry with you wherever you go. But if you use it wisely it actually help you financially but if you use it wrongly, well, you will suffer for it. Those of you carry outstanding balance from month to month is a sure sign of danger and you are force to pay more and more to be able to eventually settle the amount and the moment you paid them in full you will be tempted to use it again. To avoid being in bad debt, manage your credit cards carefully by:

• Paying off your card balance in full every month.

• Using it wisely to take advantage of the 20 day free interest period.

Consolidate your loan : It is more reasonably cheap to pay for one loan than few individually loan. Talk to your bank financial officer to consolidate all your loans. It might help you lower the interest you pay to the banks.

In short, to be able to manage your money carefully, is not that hard to do. It just needs practice, discipline, and strong will power not to buy or spend unnecessarily. Budget for necessities such as Food, Electricity, Petrol and so on. Tackle the one that is most important first. Manage compulsive buying behavior by keeping less cash in the wallet so you are not tempted to spend what you don’t have. Shop with a list. And most importantly is start putting away some percentage of your earning and invest them. Let the money be your servant. Let the money work hard to get you more money. You are the master not the money. You control the money not the money control you.

How to put million $ in your bank account.

Images extracted from

The following ideas can be accomplished only, I will say it again only if you follow the following steps carefully and start early (at young age). It may sound ridiculous but it is achievable. Too many people think that making a million is way beyond their wildest dream but it is still possible, theoretically, to acquire or amaze that amount of money. Anyway you have nothing to lose if you follow the guide below but gain. However don’t blame anyone especially me if you fail to get what you want.

Making one million dollar is just a pipe dream to many people but is it possible to make that kind of money in one lifetime? I for sure am still trying to figure out the path to guide me and possibly one day I get to that spot. Yes it is possible or may be possible to acquire that much money by following these ideas and who know it may help to put the seven digits in your bank account.

1. You can start by asking $10 from 100,000 people you know. Yes, it sound ridiculous but it works if you know that many people in your lifetime.

2. Think franchise. What about selling something, say, fried “mee” or the local favorite “nasi lemak”. If you sell 1000 packets of “nasi lemak” daily in one location may not be so practical but what if you sell 100 packets in 10 locations (100 x 10 = 1000 packet a day). If you net profit per pack is $1, it may takes you only three years to make that seven digit. Now, I’m asking you it is possible isn’t it? I remember I read sometime ago in a newspaper, a vegetable seller turns millionaire just by selling vegetable for few years in his small mobile store.

3. Pay yourself first. Put aside 10% of your monthly salary in your “seven digit account”. Make it a standing instruction so you won’t forget it. Be patience and watch the compound growing.

4. The $5 scheme. This is a simple plan. You save $5 everyday. That’s not a lot or is it a lot to you? Then, deposit the money in an account that pays an interest of 10% p.a. In 42 years, you will have $1,000,000.00, barring any fluctuations in the interest rate.

5. Invest in education for yourself. Learn a skill. Get an MBA for example. Boost up your qualifications. The more you’re a worth; the more you will be paid. But you have to pay the price by scarifying you time for your family. You tend to spend less time with your family and more to your job. Why? Because you’re the head of the company and you get pay more.

6. Join a reality show. You can be a participant on reality show, for example, the reality show” who want to be a millionaire”. If you are lucky, you might win the grand prize of $1,000,000.00. Another way is, the most common way is to buy a lottery (big sweep lottery currently giving away $13,000,000.00 for the 1st prize).

7. Be an entrepreneur. Start a business or any business that you think can make you money, lot of money. Someone once said: “if you love your job, you’ll never have to work a day”. I don’t quite understood this remarks but my comment is: if you like your job, say doing business and make money, very soon you become good at it, too good that people want you to do more and more, you tend to work harder and at the end you get tired. You’re suppose to make your life easy not end up getting tired and more tired. Anyway that is my opinion but it sound like a great way to get rich.

8. Go online. May be you have a great idea, like the student in England, making millions by selling pixel in his site ( or maybe you could be the next famous online infopreneur, the great John Chow ( earning an average monthly income of $ 12,000.00 via his website.

There are many ways to make money out there but to decide which one suit you best is solely depend on you. What interest you the most and most importantly, are you ready to take the challenge to start your own business or do something to make you more money? But do not make money illegally cause it not good for your soul.

Used to vs Use to

Do these two words have the same meaning? Both of them have the same pronunciation, so what makes them different anyway? “Used to” is correct in most instances (“we used to go to the lake every summer”; “I used to know that”). But when it follows did or didn’t, the correct spelling is use to (“that didn’t use to be a problem”).

Reference: The Merriam Webster Dictionary.

How to use Compliment and Complement

I have to admit that I often used these two words incorrectly. Again I am using the Merriam Dictionary as my guide. A compliment is a nice thing to say whereas a complement is something that completes.

Different between Farther and Further

Further and farther, which one should you used? Obviously both of these words refers to something far away and distance but which one to use? Now this is again quite confusing. Let us get back to the dictionary The Merriam Webster Dictionary. The dictionary explained that the word “farther” usually refers to distance ("he ran farther than I did") whereas the word "further" refers to degree or extent "(“she further explained the situation"). 

Bring vs Take

This is rather confusing. When can you use the words “Bring" and "Take"? Does it make any different which ever of these words you use? According to The Merriam Webster Dictionary, it all depends. The word “Bring" usually means "to carry to a closer place"; "Take" on the other hand means "to carry to a farther place
