Once the new semester start, buying new text books has become the standard routine for every college student. Let say a book cost USD 40, four text books should cost around USD 160. That is for a semester. At least USD 320 needs to be spent for a year (two semesters). Believe it or not, most college students do not use the text book anymore after finishing the related subjects. Thus, the text books are going to be wasted inside the store, and become junk. For some smart students with business in mind, they would cut their loss by selling the unused books to juniors at very cheap price.
I know that money is important to every college student, thus why not trying to save your money as much as possible. Text books for education are indeed important but somehow the cost can be cut by renting the appropriate text books instead of buying the new one. Guess what, the renting price is really low compare to the original price of the book but you still get the same contents and information. And at the end of the semester you do not need to worry about finding the ‘victim’ to buy your second hand text books. Save you money and keep you away from headache. I am not sure about other renting service, but Valore Books handle shipping and returning of books for free besides providing cheap college textbooks for college. This is better than borrowing from library since you just need to spend your time at home to rent the related books.

Checking email has been one of my daily routine. Sometimes I receive lot of emails but some of it is junk mail or also called as ‘spam’ mail. I am sure every internet user is just like me. We hate spam mail very much. Lucky, most email companies provided their user with spam detection and spam blocking that enables us to reduce or differentiate spam mail from other emails.
That is for electronic mailing system. How about the real mailing system? I mean the real mail box that is in front of our door house. There is almost impossible for us to control the type of mail that reaches to our house. I am sure some of you think that this is not a big matter since you can filter all of the mails by yourself. That may be true, but you will have problem as you don’t really know which mail comes from reliable source or which mail can be trusted.
Believe it or not, there are numbers of people that has been scammed by offline mail due to their poor awareness of this matter. Father of my friend is one the victim. He received a mail stated that he won a lucky draw. The prizes are marvelous; a free family trip to an island (I forgot which island) and also some money. Looking at the prizes, he quickly becomes ‘blind’. Then he deposited some processing fee as requested by the scam company and after that he never heard any reply from them.
Offline mail may seem orthodox method of mailing but somehow the tactic seems to show effect as the mail goes directly to the owner and is not filtered or being categorized like electronic mail. So, how come the scam company gets his mail address? Believe it or not, there are actually number of companies that sell your information to third party. The easiest way to handle this issue is just to used reputable service such as Catalogs that can unlisted your address from those companies. Then, you be aware to not submitting your home address easily to any untrusted survey, form, or such.

Booking movie ticket is essential if you want to watch a new released movie. Reservation can be done via phone but it is not reliable enough as I have bad experience last time. Compare to phone reservation, booking online is a better choice. You just need to register as a member of GSC website and then you can do reservation in a few clicks.
Reservation chair at GSC is fixed, that means you cannot choose the seats. If you don’t claim the reserve seats before 45 minutes till screening, GSC will cancel the reservation and open the seats for sell.
If you want to choose seats, you can do it by buying GSC ticket online. Credit card will do the job but you can also use Maybank2u online banking as alternative method.
Buying GSC ticket via online is called E-Payment Ticketing. You just need to choose Showtimes & Ticketing and click the E-Payment Ticketing.
Choose your desired Cinema, Date, Movie, and Screening Time.
Then, choose the number of tickets that you want to buy. RM0.50 processing fee per ticket will be charged (sucker…). If you watch 3D, another RM5 will be charged per ticket (for 3d glasses rental). I wonder whether you can avoid the charge by bringing your own 3d glass.
