Much like the rest of you – I’ve started (well decided to kick-start again) my blog with a shared hosting (or a hosted solution like Blogger or WordPress hosted). My blog used to be hosted on several sites before I made a move to host it on HostGator a couple of years back until about few weeks ago , I decided to move to a Virtual Private Server (VPS). I thought of sharing my experience in my blog post on why I made the move , what are the things that you need to be aware of and if it is suitable for everyone

Buying from Taobao in 5 Steps for Malaysians

Taobao is basically eBay or Amazon of Asia. You could find anything that you can imagine and you actually wanted to buy. Of course , this is why services like Lazada have parted with Taobao to bring the collection to Malaysians.
