Consumer Nation Under New Owner

In Announcements, Consumer Q&A on March 13, 2009 at 12:00 am

Hellooo, everyone!

Yep: this is Uncle Burger – the fella that had his stuff stolen waaaaay back … and sponsor of Consumer Nation.

First of all, I’d just like to give a big shout-out to y’all that had bumped into CN while blog-surfing … yeah, I know it has been accidental all these while 😉 But nevertheless, y’all contributed towards the comments of really old postings – that’s cool. Thanks!

As you can see by now, I’m renovating the looks of the blog. Put in a new exterior with some crisp lines, simple colors, and a layout to highlight the magazine-styled postings that we’ve been doing all this while.

At this moment, CN is a one-man show … me :-p That shouldn’t be a problem, and I hope to stick in more posts as soon as I can. I’m also working on some really cool ways to help you – the reader – to locate the stuff that is written here in CN … Think satellites 😉

Alright, better keep this short … Y’all got any questions about Consumer Nation – please feel free to drop me a comment or two. Thanks again!

CN is back … almost

Harroo! I’m back from the trip to Singapore!

Plenty of stuff to write about, but we are pooped 😛 Give me some time, ya … would likely have something up by the end of this week; which is like, 24 hours away …

CN’s trip, south of the border …

We are going to Singapore!

Choice of transport? Luxury coach from Ipoh: A 20-seating, LCD-screening, DVD-playing fully-reclining chair, First-Class-lounge-on-wheels transport 😀 Not much of a choice anyway, given the spat between the Perak state government and AirAsia on the suspension of the budget airline’s Ipoh-Senai route …

But, hey: we are going on a roadtrip!

I’ll be documenting the ride, and all else products and services (mostly food!) that one should come in contact with as a consumer traveling two-thirds the length of Peninsular Malaysia. I’ll also be reviewing the products and services while in Singapore, thus making the following articles a first for CN as product/service reviews exiting Malaysian borders.

So wish me luck in getting some decent Internet connections on the way there, including Singapore – see you there!

Consumer Nation officially on WordPress.com – welcome!

That’s right, folks – CN is now fully powered by WordPress.com, the greatest blogging system in the universe. Well, ok … not the universe, but it’s darn good and as idiot-proof as a blogging interface can get. Sign up for one yourself!

Please read on for important information for existing CN Premier and Standard members! Read the rest of this entry »

Pretty good!

It looks like we are almost on “all-systems-go” for WordPress.com to host and manage Consumer Nation (or CN for short since our inception.) Read the rest of this entry »

A test site for Consumer Nation

In Announcements on September 5, 2006 at 3:52 am

Hi everyone that has happened to stumble upon this site!

I’m just testing out the WordPress.com functionality to see if we can work here the way a lazy fella like me would love to. That means NO more script security fixes, updates, upgrades, and stuff like that … I’m currently hosting my stable of blogsites using WordPress, see.

Everything seems to be dumbed-down nicely from a long-time WP user’s point of view … but I dunno. There’s still a whole bunch of “functionality” I believe I seriously do not need, nor do I wanna see as I’m of the type that loves to click at whatever crap I see (“Ooo … what’s this do ..?”) and end up screwing myself 😦

Let’s give this a couple of weeks and see what happens. Meanwhile, you can check with our sponsors Ipoh Blog & Podcast and KL Blog & Podcast.

Thanks for visiting!
