2014.02.19 | 連鎖電郵

[Volume 9 Issue 2, #1862]
相信大家都曾經收過無數嘅連鎖電郵... 有啲係無聊到, 睇咗開頭兩句就唔想再繼續, 隨手就將佢刪除.. 有啲就好有意思, 我會由頭到尾逐個字睇, 而且仲會要高調forward俾所有朋友(當然唔係個個都會應酬).. 不過有些時候, 我會覺得很掃興, 就係當我要㩒forward嘅當下, 見到一個咁美麗嘅訊息竟然以「請轉發給X個朋友, 你就可以...」或「若不轉發給X個朋友, 你就將會...」收尾!! 睇到都眼冤啦, 就算之前有諗過要轉發, 都即刻刪除咗佢啦.. 我個point好簡單, 有麝自然香, 好嘢唔怕冇人要, 唔好嘅就唔好怪冇人鍾意囉, 係唔係先??

繼續睇落去, 你會話我mean, 之不過..
i am sure we have received many chain mails before.. some are so lame that after reading just a sentence or two, i would straight away delete them.. some are nice and meaningful and inspiring that i read from head to toe, and i would do a mass-forward to friends (though i know some may not care).. but there are times that these mails turned me off when i am about to click the forward button, imagine such beautiful message being ended with things like "forward this to X people and you can..." and "if you do not forward this to X people you will..."!! if i ever read these, i will do nothing but delete the email even if i had the intention to forward it earlier.. my point is, if your work is good then fret not no one likes it, but if your work is lame then blame not no one cares about it, agree??

you'll find me mean if you read on, but then..

    2. aiyoh, without the Spamming Queen today, this blog seems to be so quiet lah.. see, only 30 over comments for the whole day!! or probably because this topic today is boring hor??

    5. Hello everyone. Ladies & gentlemen. Boys & girls.

      Princess ribbon is back to work today. Yesterday was on leave. The hubs was away, so I took leave to send the kid to kindy (what else), did house chores, cook and all..

      You know, being at home is more draining than going to work.. I am sure most mummies will agree with me.. When you are at home, you tend to do more, like vacumn, mop, cook and all..

      But when you are working, by the time you go home already evening, so half the day gone, and only left a few hours to go before bedtime, so you do less.. Mummies sekalian, I think you will agree..

    6. Wah, I 1 day no komen but already 92 comments when I come here now..

      SK, who says without me your blog will be quiet? 92 comments and you said your blog is quiet? Biar betul you nie..

      Ok, back to the main topic, later say I lari topic pulak.. I know point #1 (who doesn’t?), but seriously, I don’t really know much about point #2.. Call me jakun (yes, SK says my name will slowly turn into princess jakun liao becoz I don’t know what is XOXO or xD)..

      I have never been tagged in a blog-tag before, but I (think) I have seen it when I am stalking other blogs.. Other bloggers tag you, and gives you questions to answer.. You have to write and answer those questions, then sort of “pass the ball” and tag other bloggers to let them continue the thingy, ngam mou? Honestly, hou sien ger wor.. If that day nothing to blog about, then maybe will layan a bit la.. But if that day bz at work or like me, on leave, then sorry lor, no time layan..

      Delete
    7. Since everyone here talking about “if you don’t send this to xx people by xx date, then something bad will happen to you” issue, let me be outstanding and story you about something else pulak..

      I don’t know if it’s a chain mail, but from the forwarded mail, there are already many recipients’ names on top, so I guess they keep on forwarding kua..

      They send pictures and story about a kid, who needs help, health problems or what, ala, biasa la.. Then they will write about her story, her personal details, how she got this health problem, what-nots.. Then at the end of the mail, they write: Please help to forward this mail. For every mail forwarded, she will get RM1, something like that..

      Ok, call me jakun again. How on earth she gets RM1 from every mail forwarded?

      Delete
    8. After email, got FB pulak..

      I belif most of you have seen this.. They story you about someone who needs help, bla bla bla, yada yada yada.. Then at the end of the story, they say: Please forward and “like” this picture. For every “likes” he will get $1 funded. Again, how on earth he gets $1 for every “likes” leh?

      Til today I am still wondering all these mail & FB thingy betul ke tak..

      Delete
    9. Even whatsapp is doing this also la.. Don’t know who started it..

      I have received a few times in my whatsapp saying that whatsapp will be demolished soon.. You need to forward the message to as many people in your contacts so that whatsapp would not demolish your account coz if you forward to many people, the developer will know you are still active and have many contacts, thus you will continue using whatsapp, something like that..

      That is pure stupidity.. Can’t accept..

      Delete
    10. Honestly if you are developer of whatsapp, would you announce this to your users?

      Eh please, without whatsapp, we won’t die also la.. Got so many chat apps la nowadays.. we have ChatOn, Kakao, WeChat, Line..

      Seriously, when I received this chained messages from my friend, I so geram la.. I was thinking takkan my friend so dumb believe it and really send out the message to all her friends in her contact list?

      Delete
    11. So you see, world of technology so canggih liao..

      Not only emails have this kinda forwarding thingy.. Chained mails and what-nots.. Even chat apps also follow this trend already.. “If you don’t forward this message to all your contacts, your chat account will be suspended”..

      Walao-weyyy, puh-leese.. Most of the time, I geram my friend or the person who forwards this message to me.. Not so much on the person who started this or created this “spam”..

      You see, takkan you are so naïve belif that if you don’t send to all your contacts, your account will be suspended? Kan?

      Delete
    12. Sorry, today I only yak about chained mails and chained chat apps messages.. Not so much to yak on blogger tags, coz I have never received one, and never did once before..

      So sorry ahh, that one tarak tau komen, so I tak komen, nanti bikin malu, keke..

      Actually this “bikin malu” word I learn from Meow.. I have seen her write a few times using this word, so I just follow la.. Meow, if you are reading, pinjam you copyright sentence ahh, hehe.. “bikin malu”.. I was thinking, why don’t she write “nanti malu lor if komen so much”, instead she wrote “bikin malu if write so much……”, so I also follow la using bikin word..

      Actually what is bikin?

    13. Some of those in FB are truly based on true story, they do gain the donated money from public......it appeared on the news about how they get to receive all the kindness from all around the world!!!

      That developer really think who he's lo, he kept on saying he wanted to make what's app as paid apps, then the reporter started to make comparison between what's app, LINE or we chat!!! Most people prefer we chat and line as they can send very cute cute emoticon, right?

      Delete
    14. Some stories in FB is real.. But now semakin banyak this kinda case, hmm, sometimes, relaly dunno which is fake or real.. Haiz..

      Eh, I don’t know about you, but my whatsapp hor, they have been renewing from year to year for me, keke.. Everytime, when it’s near to expiry date, they will send message say renew half more year for me.. Then after the expiry date, have to pay liao..

      Cheh, I “mei keng guo” (tak pernah takut).. If no whatsapp ahh, I still got WeChat & Kakao..

      Agree with you, Line very cute one, lots of cute stuff.. Even the Line Camera apps.. I download it also.. Then I can edit my picture and add cute stampers on it..

      Delete
    15. *scrol scroll scroll. * claws tired liao :p

      what you talking about? like vacumn, mop,? err...me wait got people come baru rajin vacumn and mop. LOL.


      You never been blig tag before ah? I go blog tag you la LOL Can get more backlinks to my blog. Muhahahaha... Used to be a way to get more backlinks la. Only important for those who does paid post for overseas co. They wanna see the PR ranking. Malaysian advertiser tarak kisah one.

      Those RM1 or whatever punya is fake la . Same like the FB likes.


      ahem ahem...just heard on the radio this morning...FB buying over whatsapp leh

    16. About the what's app, what phone are you using btw??? It happens to apple product!!! (As I got this info from the news)

      I also never kena tag before, so can't comment about it, hehe!!!

    17. Xiao Ying, I using S3 lor.. But whether or not Samsung or Apple, I heard the message was forwarded to most people wor, as long as they have whatsapp account.. Hmm, weird.. Only Apple people kena?

      Delete
    18. My mistake I think I confuse either one already, coz I heard the news quite long time ago, at the beginning he also said want to make it to become paid apps but now no more news again...

    19. wah, faint!!! this Princess Ribbon really nenek moyang kebayan lah, look at her comments, i think her comments is 4 times longer than my post itself, hahaha!! fuyoh, really nobody can beat her lah when it comes to long comments.. surely she will be the Spamming Queen again this month!!

      so the topic here is those donations for the number of likes?? errrr, email may be difficult to track lah, because if you say they donate $1 for every email you forward then i don't really believe that lor.. but for those $1 for every like, this may be real thing.. because can see really see how many likes mah (though we may not know whether all the likes are authentic lah).. and i think if these things originate from renown organizations then it won't be fake one lah.. anyway, just click like only mah, actually won't irritate any friends lah (unlike forwarding chain mails to them).. so i really don't mind that simple finger action also be it real or fake lah..

      and the whatsapp thing, haha.. aiyah, i don't care whether they are going to charge because when i got my phone i bought it at $0.99 already lor, so none of my business also.. and $0.99 only mah, why make such a big fuss?? nowadays can't even buy you lunch lah $0.99~~

  4. Morning!!! Morning!!! Not only chain email, I remember during my secondary school I did receive some letter like if your don't copy this same letter to 10 of your friends then you'll get into trouble or die after 10 days...something like that...don't know about others, but I was very scared that time and I asked my sis, she told me no need to bother la...then only I let it be!!! Since I'm still alive now, so prove that it's just somebody is too free that has nothing to do, wanted to make something up to scare people!!! =.=!!!

    2. oh ya, i remember that.. last time not yet have email mah, so i received those letters before.. must photocopy and send out to friends, and i think i did that before, because i was scared mah, better not take the risk.. but now think back, really nonsense lor, haha!!

    7. Meow, those normal sob sob stories asking for donations or "likes" in FB still ok. Imagine those mail forwarded to you, asking you to stare at the image and look for some stuffs, then the good luck will come to you if you managed to locate the stuff (like a star, or a diamond, etc)..

      Then when you are concentrating to locate the star or diamond (coz feel obligated ma to look for it, else bad luck will come to you), then tiba tiba a horrible ugly freaking ghost face appeared and scared the HELL out of you! And the ghost was screaming and making scary noises..

      Gawd, I hate that !!

  5. This type of Award tagging post, I will entertain when I have nothing to blog, kekekeke! But then, this seldom happen to me, because I have too many things to blog, just that I don't have the time to blog. Muahahah!

    1. SK's thought is inspiring. I agree with you, SK. Don't need to remind people to forward the chain letter, if the it is good to share, we will share it automatically. Same goes to those meme and tag post. I ignore may tag posts previously too, only attended to a few when I had nothing to blog.

      Delete
    2. Good point you sharing here again, SK. Just like in FB wall, I will share those quotes and I am inspired. No one asking me to repost it in my FB wall, i feel like it, I will share with friends.
      By the way, I love those CNY greetings that you forwarded to me.

      Happy Wednesday every one.

    3. Post more la yannie (not tag or awards) but if your kids and baking.


      In beginning I entertain la coz takut offend nlogger friends who tagged me. But I found other also don't like to be tagged. So I put it optional. Those who wish to play along the tag is welcome.

      But at one time there was too many tags. All similar punya. I start to ignore.

      Then I saw one overseas blog say her blog is tag free zone. I also put that in my comment greeting.

      Delete
    4. haha, i actually have no interest at all in those awards lah, to me it's like purely to increase backlinks only, like ada ikan di sebalik batu if somebody sends you an award.. nothing to blog about, then go gorek your photos folder for some food photos and start to make stories lah, hahaha~~

      yeah, very true Yannie.. if something is good, we will automatically share them and do not need to be "forced" to do that right?? i think this is something like you earn your respect but nobody will give it to you.. :)

      errr, award and tag free zone ah?? do i consider myself having mentioned this with this post?? haha~~

      Delete
    5. well, it's up to us whether to follow or not. Last time, I usually did but not anymore. Just be ourselves!

      Delete
    6. yeah, very true.. if we do not like that, we must not also do that to our friends.. agree??

    7. Meow, I will blog about April, May, Jin Jin and myself in my blog. I have no restriction when comes to blogging. I am not fully parenting blog, I am also not blogging solely about food and baking, I am actually using free style in blogging. Anything I feel like sharing, I just share. I think like that better, not so boring ma!

      Delete
    8. yeah, just blog what you feel like at that moment.. sometimes being able to read a more variety of topics is way more fun than reading the same under one specific theme.. but of course, it's your blog and you have your choice to do what you like.. :)

      Delete
    9. I like this one, I also prefer different topics rather than remain on the same theme, but sometimes not everyone agree with that, coz they just interested on the topic and once your change to other topic, they'll be like shouldn't you post something like this in other social media but not this one......but I wanted to say its my personal social media, as long as I didn't put a specified title to ensure this particular subject then I'm totally fine to post anything, right?

      Delete
    10. That time me newbie mah. Dunno what is backlinks pun. So bodoh bodoh do lor coz dun wanna offend blogger friend mah.

      Delete
    11. yeah, some people like varieties and some people like standard themes, so really depends on individuals lah.. if you like then read on, if you don't like then please leave lah.. it's that simple, there are millions of blogs in this world, surely you will find one that you like.. :)

      haha, i think we all also blur blur last time when we started blogging lah.. but good lah, the more we blog the more we learn from each other :)

      Delete

  12. Hello Everyone! Good Afternoon Bloggers!

    So these chain emails are indeed nonsense and nuisance since a long time ago. Some were interesting and could make you laugh! I remember there was one that attached HE Dalai Lama's preaching and the recipients were expected to forward to over 10 others in order to receive good blessings. My poor naive and gullible friends all sent to ME!!! I was flabbergasted with delight! I trashed them all away lah.

    Hey peeps, wake up! Don't believe in all those nonsense which also circulated in USA! Maybe it originated from there!

      Delete
    3. not necessary popular. It's a tactic to be made known to the others. We did that before and indeed it helped.

    2. yeah, that's why i said, some are actually nice and inspiring and interesting.. those i really read and digest, and also forward to some close friends.. and i will make sure the version i sent out will contain no "forward instruction", haha~~

      Delete
    3. hope that the next time we receive any chain letters, it doesn't contain those forward instruction anymore.

      Delete
    4. but hard to guarantee that because there are still a lot of morons in this world trying to do stupid and meaningless nonsense.. sigh!!

    5. Last time (super long time ago) I used to forward those nice and inspiration email among my friends and my sister, as they always like to send me those too and surprisingly no one found that's annoying but don't know why everyone stop forwarding gradually!!!

      Actually I like those mails duh, because it has something like "the world largest water indoor theme park" then the content is full of attractive pictures of it, or something like world tallest building seven world wonder!!! Those all come with good pictures that's why I like it la!!! But something like news of accident and showing scary bloody body or broke arm or broke leg then that one I'll give a pass!!! Same as those saying in somewhere in china they use rubber band to make the squid fried ring, okay!!! Which makes me not dare to eat squid fried ring for years!!! =[

      Delete
    6. haha, now you said that and i also realized that it seems we are getting less and less of those chain mails already huh?? oh, i kind of miss those days when i received a lot of nice chain mails with a lot of beautiful pictures.. i think people don't do that now through emails, but probably through likes and share in facebook already..

      Delete
  21. You noticed the greeting in my comment box? I said no tag and award zone . Lol. Yea..me lc la but after doing 2-3 tag in my early days, I feel lazy jor. Even in fb now got new "tag". Someone will write something silly like I am moving to timbuktu. If we comments in that thread then we kena trapped and will be asked to put something silly in our fb status. Then trapnothers. I kena few times. Each time I just laugh it off and never bother to do it.

  22. I find that the chain email /whatapps that says "if you don't fwd to xx ppl you will.." very offensive. Yea I know the sender is scared of the repercussions but then if they are my friend why in this world would they wanna pass this bad karma to me? Why wana me to be unhappy? Is this the way of real friend?

      Another was say ask alert coz xxx country AIDS patients pakat to go donate blood to infect others ppl. And another is say mozzie bite can transmit AIDS.

      Never check ka before forward.

      Saw one friend kena KNS in FB for simply sharing animal cruelty case. Whn in actual fact the case was settled many years ago and was not as claim in the article.

    2. well, we actually receive all kinds of spam and junk mails. What to do? It's cyberworld. We just need to play safe and enjoy what is appropriate.

      Delete
    3. yalah, those people very KNS sometimes, never bother to think before they act.. and i also do not understand the motive of the creator who started all these things?? so free got nothing to do ah?? go and sweep and mop the floor of the whole house to kill the time lah, hahahaha!! but then cannot let them use METHOD, because they will clean the house too quickly and come back to create nonsense again~~ :D

    4. The what's app one is pretty annoying, my eldest sister always curious about it and forward to all the siblings to ask, especially the one said what's app gonna terminate or become paid apps something like that....(wonder all these people really have nothing to do duh?)

      Also that's one time my brother in law send something to all of us,is a link like saying he's currently using this app and ask you to join it ask well, then my sister blur blur don't know and click on the link, who knows it's virus....it sent to everyone in her contact list...and she wasn't noticed at that moment until her friend call her to let her know then she only knows that's virus!!!

      Delete
    5. hmmm, i remember that Whatsapp thing, actually i received that but before i forward to friends, i actually search online for its authenticity, only to realise that was just a hoax lor.. hmmm, and those ask you to join some links thing, actually when it's sent to us, it really sounded like your friend personally sent to you, so easily fell into the trap one lor.. haiz, that means your BIL kena virus lah.. so better to use iPhone because i heard no people bother to make virus for Apple products, haha!!

    1. yeah, i do agree with you, but i would say not all lah, most of them are very irritating.. so if i ever want to forward, i try not to make them read like chain mails.. haha!! :D

  24. I will normally ignore such chain mails if i received them especially those that state if you don't xxxxx you will xxxx i find it threatening and i don't believe such things

    1. yeah, exactly the same thing here.. i don't like to be forced to do something..

      Delete
    2. Same here, I will just delete them without even proceed to read them in details.
      These days I seldom receive such chain mails in my mailbox, but on and off I see my friends post similar photos/articles in FB, also saying something 'forward if you want good luck etc...'. Sorry la but I find it funny and ridiculous lo!
      Once I actually wonder, well so if I really forward the mail/photo, but no good luck happens to me, who shall I report to ar? LOL!

      Delete
    3. ah, you are right!! i think nowadays seldom use emails as the channel already but mostly through sharing and likes on facebook!! hahaha, but then errr, if on facebook, got such thing as "forward and you will XXXX" meh??

      and a good question from you!! hahaha.. can you guarantee good luck if i forward?? if not then where to complain?? :D

  25. Good afternoon SK and guys!

    Hmm chain mails, no matter good or bad, sorry to say that I hate them! But one thing I realise, last few years, there were indeed a lot chain mails I received in my mailbox. But of the recent 1-2 years, the number of chain mails got lessen! I don't know why but it's sure a good thing for me. Back then, I remember I needed to delete them every single day in order to keep my mailbox 'nice' and 'neat'! So troublesome and leceh leh!
    Now, no need to do those jobs already, what a breeze!! =)

    1. Actually I also don't know who started the chain mail thingy, but to me it sounds very irrational! I mean, really by forwarding the mail then good things will happen to me already? Or if I really don't forward, something bad will happen? (Touchwood la!)
      Come on, common sense, and think rationally, how on earth is that is possible right? Good or bad things, I believe God already have the plans. Forwarding or not is not gonna effect anything in our lives la!

      I think people who started it just do it for fun, or sometimes, scare people. Imagine, when it says 'bad thing will happen if you don't forward', we will sure got frightened and worried, so many will sure forward the mails, then the cycle goes on and on. 其实只是个心理游戏罢了,就看看个人怎样去衡量咯!But if you can think rationally, you'll know it's not possible ;)

    2. Oh ya, the award comes tag thingy, erm actually I did that a few times before. Now that you mentioned, it makes me feel a bit silly doing that :(
      I mean I know it's just a 'virtual award' which anyone can get easily, but when I got tagged with such awards, I din't think so much but to blog about it if I could. First is to show my appreciation to that particular blogger for 'nominating' me (cause I believe it means that blogger remembers me), second is to just share whatever infor/details to my readers, and third, to add a post to my archive (especially if I got nothing special to blog about that time) ;))

      But of course, I don't usually tag my readers at the end of the award post, because I know there're people who think like you :p So sometimes I think I kinda violate the award rules cause usually they want you to tag a certain number of people ma! :p
      Even if I tag, I will not make it a compulsory rule for my readers, I will state clear it's just a 'award', blog or not, it's totally up to you, at least give people a choice and freedom ma!

      p/s: I think I have tagged you in certain award before? Sorry ar, I din't know you hate being tagged that time xD

      Delete
    3. Anyway, ok la, I will remember what you say, if wanna give you an award, better give you something physical, something which you can touch, haha xD
      But all I want to say is, don't feel irritated by those tagging la! Like I said, if that person tagged and nominated you, it means somehow he/she remembers you as a friend. At least drop by his/her blog to say thank you, and tell politely that you don't do tags so you'll probably skip the post. Afterall, it's totally up to you whether to blog about it or not. You can choose to not blog about it, but you cannot stop/block people from nominating you ma! :p

      Anyway, I think after reading this post, all your readers will remember already and won't give you xxx award next time xD

      Delete
    4. yalor, you mentioned that and i also realized.. really don't get those chain mails in the mailbox lately already.. all gone to sharing and likes on facebook already lah.. actually i miss those days when i receive a lot of nice chain mails especially those with photos.. at least with photos nicer to read on, unlike those long-winded pure words emails, i surely no patience to read on one.. haha!!

      yalah, so not making sense right?? and just like you said, if i don't forward then really bad luck will hit me?? or if i forward, and no good luck comes to me then whom shall i complain to?? come to think of it, really just a psychological game lah, i always hate that and do not like to be obligated in those so-called "forward instructions" lah.. straight away will trash them, and immediately empty the recycle bin.. don't pollute my always neat and tidy mailbox, haha!!

      haha, no lah, i won't feel irritated if somebody tagged me in those "XXX Award" thing lah.. in fact i will just entertain to say thank you to show my appreciation but then i will always have to find time to do that lah.. errr, i am being very hypocrite lah when it comes to this thing, sorry ah if i ever ignored your requests earlier, haha!! but then i think you also understand lah, you yourself also not really want those things, but just to show appreciation to the sender mah.. anyway, glad that this thing is like not "heng" anymore right?? hmmm, peace of mind~~ :D
