TIME to get your Internet  speed BOOSTED!

Did my punny title catch your interest? Have I ever said before that TIME has the best internet connection ever?! Haha I must have many times, but never got to try it since they didn’t cover my old office. But hey… My new office has it, woot!


It’s TIME to SPEED UP Woohoo!

And guess what, as soon as we signed up for TIME, they decided to revise their plan to give even HIGHER speed and connectivity at an even lower cost. Talk about a stroke of good luck lol. So without even thinking I dumped the rest and got ourselves subscribed to TIME Fibre Business Internet, and see how it compares with the others I’ve tried including Maxis & TM Unifi which I use both back at home and at the old office.

Their plans are even quite flexible with two kinds of packages to suit your business needs.

I would recommend the TIME Fibre Business Internet Basic for businesses in the start up life like my office who need a reliable speedy internet provider to get the basics and a little bit more done!

Check out the difference in the before and after plans!



SPEED 6Mbps 12Mbps 24Mbps 36Mbps
PRICE RM168 RM268 RM368 RM468
BOOST 20Mbps 30Mbps 50Mbps 50Mbps

Now my friends who are running larger entities, how bout trying the TIME Fibre Business Internet Plus package which packs a lot of extra OOOMPH!

The increased speeds, lowered costs and additional business tools means businesses can even be more effective and save more costs! This also suggests that TIME has every intention in mind to put their customers first!



Well one thing for sure, although it’s only been 3 months since I’ve enjoyed TIME, I’ve seen a reduction in the times I had to restart the modem. Yes although there’s still some hiccups but usually it happens at peak hours and a simple restart would work, unlike the countless days I had no Internet when I was at the old office… My colleagues can attest to it haha. So far so good in the sense we didn’t need to call them up to do anything 🙂


Yeah…that’s our type of connection – through the internet 😛 ​



When it first started we were like WHOA!! Speed ten times more than what we had was unheard of, and our speedtest (of course we used a non biased tool, not TIME’s own one) went through the roof but on downloads and uploads! In fact now they’ve raised the speed to 70% times more – it makes us at Socialgrooves the happiest people alive, even without making use of our boosted time 😀 Do you know what’s that? I’ll share it in my next point…



One of my favorite feature none others can compare to is the BOOST feature! I mean, suddenly we’re able to download a 100MB file (trust me in our digital industry, this is pretty common lol) in a matter of seconds! Streaming YouTube videos we produced for clients, sending proposals over 50MBs wasn’t an issue for us anymore, only on our clients or partners side haha. Yes, we’re pretty proud of our boost function and our friends come to visit us for this too 😛


So yeah these are the top three areas in which I feel TIME has trumped their competitors. It makes it easier for us to work with online tools more than ever before, working with websites (oh did I share that TIME’s subscription comes with bonus business tools from Exabyte and free calls as well? You can check them out at their website www.time.com.my) and basically producing quality content with the peace of mind that comes with uninterrupted connection and speed 🙂


So what are you waiting for? Ok on a serious note just let me know, cos as far as I know even the installation was super efficient with the guys coming over to make sure our line is great, installing without disturbing us and making sure all is good. If I’m not wrong they even gave us extra lines in case we want to extend. Pretty cool guys? Gotta commend them 🙂 Let me know if your experience was otherwise, interested to know!

#GoingGlobal2015: Can you teach social enterprise in existing education systems?


So here I am, preparing myself for my first ever talk at the United Kingdom after having graduated from Imperial College London just about 10 years ago. returning to home soil in Malaysia to build my career & contribute to solve some of her problems. It still feels surreal, but one does not simply miss out on an opportunity to be on a panel with amazing youths all over the world to debate whether social entrepreneurship could be taught at the @HEGoingGlobal!

It’s been a fantastic journey throughout, even a surprise to myself, that I would be here doing what I do. Basically, my current portfolio are the following: I’m a social entrepreneur at EYE Project, a digital marketer at SocialGrooves.com, the digital manager to Dato’ Lee Chong Wei, a founding Global Shaper at the Global Shapers Community Kuala Lumpur Hub but most importantly, a Malaysian building his own version of a #betterMalaysia. And I remember all I ever wanted to do was make a difference to people’s lives.

And now, to be part of a global event organized by the British Council, is one way I can thank everyone who ever supported me to be where I am today. Thank you, my family, friends, partners, associates, social media followers and all. You guys made me happen :’)

Teaching Social Enterprise? Young Social Entrepreneurs Debate

So yeah, this Going Global Panel Session will be happening on the 1st June at Queen Elizabeth II Centre, London, in less than 2 weeks! Here’s where I need your help: what do YOU think about this topic? Can we create social entrepreneurs, or is it something we have to personally experience first in order to “make the leap” headstrong into social entrepreneurship?

In other words, even if there were such thing as a course on social entrepreneurship, how should it be done? Do share your answers, as it will be a good piece of material for discussion during the event.

Now here’s more about the panel: it will be taking place at the Going Global, a forum for education world leaders to debate international higher and further education issues and challenges, and to discuss collaborative solutions.  The key theme for the event is “Connecting Cultures, Forging Futures”, the idea that the fusion of diverse cultures generates a creative force, which is a major catalyst of leading edge innovation. Investment in the connection of these cultures produces a tangible return and measurable impact for the future.



The session will be chaired by Vonnie Sandlen, Women’s Officer and President Elect for 2015/16 of NUS Scotland

Regina is a software developer and social entrepreneur with a passion for using technology to bring social change. Regina is an Ashoka Fellow, an Aspen Institute of New Voices Fellow, a GOOD fellow, a Global Shaper of the Accra hub of the World Economic Forum, Vital Voices Fellow, finalist for the African Digital Woman of the Year and a Change Leader with Tigo Reach For Change. Ashesi is a private, non-profit liberal arts university located in Ghana, with a msion to educate a new generation of ethical, entrepreneurial leaders in Africa; to cultivate among its students critical thinking skills, concern for others and the courage to transform a continent. Her university education included economics, leadership, and entrepreneurship. She started working in the corporate sector. While she was initially unaware of social entrepreneurship, she was interested in solving social problems. She approached her lecturers, and was encouraged to apply her learnings to tackle social problems, and link up with alumni. Her university education helped her as a social entrepreneur with problem solving, business and computer science skills, access to advice and encouragement, and linking her into a network. She also learnt the need for a sustainable business, not reliant on funds. She reflects that had the focus of her education been social entrepreneurship, she would perhaps have started her social enterprise sooner.

Follow the organisation at @Akhaamacoffee

Ayu (Lee) was born and grew up in a remote village. Encouraged by his parents, he was the first from his village to study at university. He wanted to provide opportunities to others. He reflects that traditionally education in Thailand teaches students to compete for jobs in industry, government or hospitality, be motivated by money, and move to the city, rather than encouraging them to return and contribute to communities they may come from. Ayu’s education has played an important role for him in overcome barriers that he may otherwise have faced. His university education gave him credibility and enabled communication across linguistic, educational, professional and geographical boundaries, important for sharing experiences of coffee farmers and promoting his social enterprise. Ayu sees higher education as providing relevant skills and knowledge applicable to needs assessments, understanding problems faced by the community, and developing a business plan. However, he asks, how can knowledge from university be brought back and applied to the community, e.g. to solve social problems. How can students be enabled to choose options that involve helping communities, rather than just focusing on making money or studying for itself?

Follow him at @spinzer, and his organisation at @eyeprojectMY

Christopher is a passionate advocate for youth empowerment. He is a Global Shaper of the Kuala Lumpar hub of the World Economic Forum. He sees life experience, rather than university education, as important in the journey of a social entrepreneur. While he advocates that social entrepreneurship cannot be taught, he sees exposure to social enterprise as necessary in order for those who take up social enterprise to get the support they need, especially from peers. He sees four main factors as influencing a young person’s decision to approach social entrepreneurship as a career decision: 1) how supportive universities are to the idea of SE, 2) the level of activity from student-based NGOs such as ENACTUS, 3) access (or distraction) to too many opportunities and 4) most importantly their respective family background. From his own experience of higher education, rather than the specific education he received, he found that being away from his own environment, being involved with student organisations, and being encouraged and supported by peers, educators, and family, assisted him on his journey as a social entrepreneur.

Follow him at @rightkurfuffle, and his organisation at @balloonkenya

Joshua found that there was no clear route into social entrepreneurship. While Joshua did not study entrepreneurship or social entrepreneurship, his university studies in History and Politics equipped him with skills in writing, developing a coherent argument, telling a good story, researching and public speaking that he uses daily as a social entrepreneur. He “stumbled” into running a social enterprise, although his idea from research he did for his Masters dissertation. He did not initially know what social enterprise was, and would have liked more exposure to social enterprise and business, with it being presented as a viable career path. He sees a big responsibility/opportunity for universities to open the minds of young people and show them all the possibilities in the world. He reflects that in today’s climate, where there is competition and uncertainty, entrepreneurship skills – social or otherwise – are essential, and should be included in university education.

Eye of the Tiger appears at the Creative Pioneer Awards 2014

So I was nominated last year at the Creative Pioneer Awards 2014. Never would I have thought I’d be cool enough to be a part of it haha. Here’s a belated thanks to everyone who liked and shared my entry!



I’ve always believed that by helping others achieve their mission in life, you’ll be rewarded by experience no money can buy.

I didn’t expect that the reward to come back to me by way of being nominated as one of the Top 5 Creative Pioneer Awards in 2014 last year under the Entrepreneurship category.

Although I didn’t win the title, it went rightfully to Melvin Tong and Kelvin Tong founders of Extreme Supercars, the twins who have inspired so many others by showing that nothing can stop you from pursuing success!

Time to accept being the Eye of the Tiger. This month of November 2015, I will do things I've never done before, reach…

Posted by Christopher Tock on 2hb November 2015

Shared quite a lengthy story of my latest updates to contribute towards the various industries I’m part of, a continuation of my last interview with the Star Rage. I want to dedicate this moment to my parents, my 3 beautiful sisters, my colleagues in EYE Project and SocialGrooves.com and of course the Global Shapers KL folks among many others! Thank you SO much!

Time to Eat

Time to go on Two Wheels


These days, the LOHAS (Lifestyles of Health and Sustainability) trend is gaining popularity as people begin to be more health and eco-conscious. Taiwan is well-known for its LOHAS practices, and there is no better way to experience it than to travel along the breath-taking coastal highways by bicycle! Immerse yourself in the beauty of nature and appreciate the simple yet wonderful things in life with your loved ones.
