Smoking vs Vaping : How Much Is It Really Costing You

The recent price hike for cigarettes have caused an uproar among the smokers in Malaysia with some brands going up as high as RM18 per box. On the other hand, a recent crackdown on vape juices (e-liquids) with nicotine by the Health Ministry has also caused outrage amongst vape store owners who have had their stocks confiscated by Health Ministry officers.

It was reported that in Selangor alone, over 300 vape stores were raided in the beginning of November. Under the Poisons Act 1952, the sale of nicotine can only be undertaken by licensed pharmacists and registered medical practitioners, and is prohibited by other parties. Similarly, under the existing legislation, the sale of e-liquids with nicotine can also only be supplied by registered medical practitioners and licensed pharmacists. However, pharmacists are saying they are not keen on selling vape juices. There have also been calls for vape to be regulated as well as for it to be taxed. The government has announced that it will set up a special committee to look into vaping. It is also interesting to note that the vape industry in Malaysia is worth half a billion ringgit and is the second largest in the world after the American market.

What Is Zakat?

In an effort to shed some light on the Zakat issue, we talked to Employer Collection Sector Manager from Lembaga Zakat Selangor (LZS), Encik Wira Mustafa to understand what it entails, why it’s not encouraged to pay Zakat directly to the poor and to find out how the funds are used.

What is Zakat?

Encik Wira: Zakat is the third pillar of Islam and is wajib (compulsory) on Muslim’s who meet all the conditions. The word Zakat itself means to purify. Technically Zakat means a fixed proportion collected from a specific type of mal (wealth) when they reach the haul (specific term) which must be distributed to specific categories of people. Giving Zakat means Muslim’s are purifying their wealth by giving a part of it to the needy as well as to gain Allah’s blessing on their wealth. It teaches us to sacrifice a part of our wealth, to cleanse our wealth by means of Zakat.

Netflix Launched in Malaysia but with Limited Library

Netflix has been officially launched in Malaysia after the announcement made by Reed Hastings at CES 2016. Netflix expanded its service to 130 new countries around the world including Malaysia being one of the locations. However, there is a catch!

The content available in Netflix Malaysia won’t be as expensive as content available in Netflix USA. This is where using a VPN comes into play. With a VPN by your side, you can access Netflix library of any region and watch your favorite shows or movies online.

Netflix is one of the world’s largest online streaming services that offer thousand of movies, TV shows, and other media for your online entertainment. Now if you are located in Malaysia and are looking to access Netflix, then I am afraid you will run into the problem of geo-restriction.

Netflix is a US based video on–demand streaming service. Although Netflix is available in various other countries around the world, it is yet to officially launch in Malaysia. So when you try to access movies or TV series on Netflix while being in Malaysia, you will see the following message.

Disappointing isn’t it! So how do you access Netflix Malaysia?

The year 2015 was certainly not an easy one for Malaysians, from having to adjust to fuel subsidy removals starting December 2014, to having to cope with price hikes that came with the implementation of the 6% Goods and Services Tax (GST) in April, to having to weather the weakening Ringgit, which hit a 17-year-low against the US dollar (at 4.40) in September due to falling crude oil prices.
To top it up, tolls at highways operated by 11 concessionaires were also raised by between 20 sen and RM3 in October.
Will the upcoming year spell better news for our wallets? We are not counting on it. In fact, there will be further all-round price increments that we are totally not looking forward to. What are they? Read on to find out.

What Multitasking Does To Our Brains

We've all heard it hundreds of times: to work efficiently we have to single task. No multitasking. And yet, we let it slip. We end up eating lunch in front of the TV with our laptop open. We browse Twitter and Facebook whilst sending emails, and probably chatting in Google+ too. If we should be focusing on just one assignment, blog post, or proposal...why the heck is it so hard to focus? 

Why we multitask in the first place: It makes us feel good

To understand why we always fall into the habit of multitasking, when we know we shouldn't, I found some very interesting studies. The answer is in fact quite simple:

[People who multitask] are not being more productive—they just feel more emotionally satisfied from their work.

How to Manage Your Time on a Chaotic, Irregular Schedule

Not everyone works 9-5. When you schedule doesn't fit into neat little boxes, it can require some special skills to keep everything in order. Here are some tactics you can use to keep your energy up and maintain a bit of control.

In a past life, I worked as a video producer, writing, shooting, and editing short films. Anyone who's worked in this field for more than a day can tell you that regular hours are not something you keep. Some days you'll work 16 hours straight, other days you'll shoot for three hours in the middle of the night because that's the only time everyone's free. Developing skills to manage a chaotic schedule becomes incredibly important when you can't know when you're working from week to week (and, notably, these skills transfer very well to working multiple jobs and/or retail).

Benefits of Antioxidants

Antioxidants come up frequently in discussions about good health and preventing diseases. These powerful substances, which mostly come from the fresh fruits and vegetables we eat, prohibit (and in some cases even prevent), the oxidation of other molecules in the body. The benefits of antioxidants are very important to good health, because if free radicals are left unchallenged, they can cause a wide range of illnesses and chronic diseases.

Antioxidants and Free Radicals

The human body naturally produces free radicals and the antioxidants to counteract their damaging effects. However, in most cases, free radicals far outnumber the naturally occurring antioxidants. In order to maintain the balance, a continual supply of external sources of antioxidants is necessary in order to obtain the maximum benefits of antioxidants. Antioxidants benefit the body by neutralizing and removing the free radicals from the bloodstream.
