Great Eastern Buddy Up and Get Rewarded with Prizes Worth More Than RM55,000

Most of the time, I love traveling with my buddies, as it will be cheaper when we are in a group. In the other words, my buddies and I can split the costs of food and transportation! Besides that, we can also negotiate for better rates on hotel & tours if traveling in a larger group. Travel with buddies and watch your savings add up!

It’s possible that when I travel overseas, I might get sick. That’s when traveling with my buddies will really come in handy. They will help get medication and even find me a nice place to rest. The added bonus is they can provide me moral support and I won’t be so lonely in some strange place.

One of the favorite things when traveling with friends is we can take turns to watch over our belongings for each other when we are at a public place. So, it is undeniably awesome.

My friends and I stayed at Cameron Highlands for one night last month and we went on an unforgettable tour of various fruit farms (Strawberry Farm, Cactus Farm, and etc). Besides that, it is a place that has very warm and welcoming weather. Honestly, we love Cameron Highlands for its serenity, cool environment and of course we had steamboat for dinner as well. It was a very perfect and fun trip, no questions about that, all of us enjoyed ourselves.

How I hope we can have more trips like these!

Well, actually, now we can.

Additional 6% Tax on Prepaid Reloads

Prepaid users will need to fork out own money to pay 6% service tax on all reloads as well as new starter packs effective from 15 Sept 2011. In the other words, the consumer would need to pay:

RM10.60 for RM10 prepaid reload
RM31.80 for RM30 prepaid reload
RM53.00 for RM50 prepaid reload
RM63.60 for RM60 prepaid reload
RM106.00 for RM100 prepaid reload

telco service tax

It’s not a great news to all the prepaid users as the call rate for prepaid charges is still very high. I think telcos should take the opportunity to give rebates to compensate the additional cost.

New Perodua Myvi 2011

Oh yeah! What’s special for this month? The new Perodua Myvi is launched by our Deputy Prime Minister on 16, June 2011. I’m sure all of you are very aware of this new Myvi. Many still remain question whether it will be a complete makeover from its successful predecessor after 5 consecutive years as the country’s best selling car.

new myvi

Perodua Myvi is a much better car than most of the imported cars and certainly all Proton models. The finishing is good and the engine is also among the best. Also, the nice body shape, ample space, and rich features always fit most of Malaysian needs. No doubt it is the best selling car and predicted that it would remain so.

The Impact of Power Tariff Hikes

The news on new electricity tariff has caught everyone dumbfounded recently. The average electricity tariff will be increased by 7.12% due to revision of gas prices for power sector.

However, those households that use 300kWh or less of electricity per month will not be affected by this high tariff rate. Meanwhile, our government will also continue to provide rebate to domestic consumers whose monthly electricity bills amount to RM20 or less until end of this year.

TNB new tariff

The increase in power tariff is also part of a plan to cut government subsidies. We have been assured that the effect of the power tariff hike on inflation would not be significant. But, we must always remind that it will trigger some increase in the cost of living although the impact is expected to be less than that from an increase in fuel prices.

My Suggestions:

GST Malaysia 2011 & Its Implications

A Goods and Services Tax (GST) will be implemented in Malaysia soon. Basically, this consumption tax is imposed on consumers’ goods and services. However, for a business owner they also need to think carefully as they need to apply it to their business. If they fail to do that, then they may suffer the loss of the credit for input taxes.

GST Malaysia

Apparently, this GST will affect not only accounting, finance, or tax personnel, but it will affect all levels of staff also, including those from sales, operations, and even human resource.
