A barnstar for you![edit]

Tireless Contributor Barnstar Hires.gif The Tireless Contributor Barnstar
I hereby award you this barnstar for your hardwork to find sources from library to expand Sandakan article. :) — ᴀʟʀᴇᴀᴅʏ ʙᴏʀᴇᴅ ʜᴜʜ? 13:30, 4 November 2014 (UTC)
You're welcome.. Sure, I can help you to cite the reference. But can you show me the example of the reference? What type of reference is that? Is it a book, document or newspaper? — ᴀʟʀᴇᴀᴅʏ ʙᴏʀᴇᴅ ʜᴜʜ? 13:50, 4 November 2014 (UTC)
..and during your visit to the monument, did you copy any words or sentence from what has been shown there to your smartphone or note book (if you don't have)? Some text may also be available online on the internet either in book or newspaper form. — ᴀʟʀᴇᴀᴅʏ ʙᴏʀᴇᴅ ʜᴜʜ? 14:00, 4 November 2014 (UTC)
Mmm, that source might also be useful. You can see here for more information on what type of source can be use on Wikipedia. Some tools I recommended for you (based on what I have used everyday);
I think it is much better if the source in book, newspaper, PDF or website form as Wikipedia mostly cite from this type of sources. — ᴀʟʀᴇᴀᴅʏ ʙᴏʀᴇᴅ ʜᴜʜ? 14:25, 4 November 2014 (UTC)
Alright. Oh, and don't forget to check out a huge numbers of Sandakan images in commons, mostly contributed by Cccefalon, a German who currently doing a lot of research on Sabah just like other German as on this site who interest on Sabahan culture. (Hee, that's when you become so busy in a day and you will get a lot of notification) :) — ᴀʟʀᴇᴀᴅʏ ʙᴏʀᴇᴅ ʜᴜʜ? 14:55, 4 November 2014 (UTC)
────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────Hee, actually there is still a huge numbers of monuments and memorials in Sabah. Even in my place also there is some memorials that I never visit yet.

See {{Malaysian historical architecture}} as I'm currently in the process to make the links here turn blue to expand more coverage on Sabah historical site. Maybe if you have a time you can help me to write it. ;) — ᴀʟʀᴇᴀᴅʏ ʙᴏʀᴇᴅ ʜᴜʜ? 23:20, 4 November 2014 (UTC)

Hee, okay. I'm waiting for your further contribution here. :) — ᴀʟʀᴇᴀᴅʏ ʙᴏʀᴇᴅ ʜᴜʜ? 02:01, 5 November 2014 (UTC)
I still have several thousand photos of Sabah which are not post processed yet. If you are looking for something that I haven't uploaded, you can ask me, if it's in my archive. I also own a huge archive of references to Sabah history. For specific questions, I might be able to give an answer. A good idea is also, to look, if there is always an article about a topic in german language available. My articles about Malaysia and Sabah are located here. Cheers, --Cccefalon (talkcontribs) 11:34, 5 November 2014 (UTC)

────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────Hi, sorry for any late reply, been so busy doing a lot of research and expand the > Moro attacks on Sabah article. If you guys have anything to share, you can help me there too. ;) — ᴀʟʀᴇᴀᴅʏ ʙᴏʀᴇᴅ ʜᴜʜ? 05:28, 8 November 2014 (UTC)

Thanks! Yummy!! I love muffins! :P ~ Muffin Wizard ;) 14:58, 9 November 2014 (UTC)
Oit Malaysiaboy, congratulations for becoming administrator in Malay Wikipedia. I know this is late but still want to say congrats to you. :P Sorry as I can't vote you during the admin poll. :/ ~ Muffin Wizard ;) 11:28, 26 March 2015 (UTC)
You're welcome. Ohh, no wonder I see you didn't active anymore like before. Why? Because of GST that increasing the price of instant noodles? (the popular Malaysian hostel students food at the midnight) :D ~ Muffin Wizard ;) 15:15, 2 April 2015 (UTC)
Haha, just like a soldier school. Well, most of the important products have a GST, even Milo as the important Malaysian people breakfast drink also have that. :/ Good luck for your studies, during the holiday you can still edit wiki lahh, where are you now? How you can surfing wiki arr? ~ Muffin Wizard ;) 03:11, 3 April 2015 (UTC)
Sorry for the late reply, been busy working on the {{Languages of Malaysia}} + with my internet slow problem. What quiz is it? versus another school? Hah, you're a fan of K-pop! :P Btw, have you heard about the Sandakan teen April fool. >< ~ Muffin Wizard ;) 06:22, 3 April 2015 (UTC)
────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────Ahh, finally my work just finished! >< Sorry for late again. Good luck! I hope you become the champions! :P Haha, yep, even most of us here talk about that topic. Hmm, that is the sad thing that happen to our Malaysian education today, I see many Malaysian students today even fail English because our government just focus to the Malaysian language without knowing the impact. Sometimes I'm also ashamed when I remember my late grandfather because they can speak English much better than me today. :( ~ Muffin Wizard ;) 11:08, 3 April 2015 (UTC)
Yaa, that's why, haha, when I see my English just like a Phua Chu Kang English. ;P But aren't you better become a scientist (not the Coldplay song :P)? Maybe if you had become a scientist, you can build a time machine and we can travel to the past just like Doctor Who (lol :D) About the language, that's why we cannot follow some Malay proverb like "Biar mati anak, jangan mati adat". If our son/daughter have died, how to pass the culture? If people today follow it, that will make our cultures and languages disappeared so easily. :/ ~ Muffin Wizard ;) 12:27, 3 April 2015 (UTC)
That was also great when you want to be a linguist. You can preserve our ethnic groups heritage languages, for example creating a different dictionary for every tribes (like the Oxford dictionaries) with a translation to Malay and English to maintain its existence. I have an old dictionary of Dusun language before (which made since the British period of North Borneo) which I get from my mother. But the sad thing is, some crazy Bookworm have eat most part of the book until it left only for the cover >< ~ Muffin Wizard ;) 02:52, 4 April 2015 (UTC)
Yep, btw, have you found more historical documents of Sandakan, I wish we can make your town as a GA since Tawau have already became a GA here. :) ~ Muffin Wizard ;) 10:46, 4 April 2015 (UTC)
Why? Because the rule are so strict? Or because need to "botak"? :D ~ Muffin Wizard ;) 16:30, 4 April 2015 (UTC)
Wow, you wake up so early ah, haha, but still your Internet are much faster than me, compare to me who are using 1Malaysia internet, with 2mbps even want to upload file also hard ohh. >< But don't worry, maybe one day if you going to university, your nightmare will dissapear. :) ~ Muffin Wizard ;) 00:57, 5 April 2015 (UTC)

Re : 2014 Southeast Asian floods#Controversies[edit]

Thanks for informing, but that is not me who added the information. You can check back on the history section. :P ~ Muffin Wizard ;) 10:09, 31 December 2014 (UTC)

Ehh, by the way, can you help to added more information for Indonesia, Thailand and the Philippines?. I'm tired lahh to do it alone. X_X ~ Muffin Wizard ;) 10:11, 31 December 2014 (UTC)
Thanks! Feel free to added more as I want to take some break now. :D ~ Muffin Wizard ;) 10:16, 31 December 2014 (UTC)
That's why it gives me a headache to update that section, what about Indonesia? ~ Muffin Wizard ;) 11:09, 31 December 2014 (UTC)
────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────Same as me too as I found mostly about the landslide. there is no need to put that. :P

This was probably due to most Indonesian events lack in English sources from their own media. I suggested you to try searching in Indonesian language. (But don't use the gossip, hoax or other prediction news site as I have seen many Indonesian language news site like this) ~ Muffin Wizard ;) 11:56, 31 December 2014 (UTC)

Using font tags in your signature[edit]

Hello there! I'm working on a project trying to bring most of the coding on Wikipedia up to the most current standards (HTML5), and I noticed that your signature is using <font>...</font> tags which were deprecated in HTML 4.0 Transitional, marked as invalid in 4.0 Strict, and are not part of HTML5 at all. I'd love to help you update your signature to use newer code, and if you're interested, I suggest replacing:

<font style="white-space:nowrap;text-shadow:#F8F8FF 0em 0em 0.8em,#FF4500 -0.8em -0.8em 0.9em,#90EE90 0.7em 0.7em 0.8em;color:#696969"> <b>[[User:Malaysiaboy|Malaysiaboy]]</b>[[User talk:Malaysiaboy|<font style="color:Orange">Chat</font>]]</font>

with:

<b style="white-space:nowrap;text-shadow:#F8F8FF 0em 0em 0.8em,#FF4500 -0.8em -0.8em 0.9em,#90EE90 0.7em 0.7em 0.8em;color:#696969"> [[User:Malaysiaboy|Malaysiaboy]]</b>[[User talk:Malaysiaboy|<span style="color:Orange">Chat</span>]]

which will result in a 233 character long signature (13 characters shorter) with an appearance of: MalaysiaboyChatcompared to your existing 246 character long signature of: MalaysiaboyChat — Either way. Happy editing! Darylgolden(talk) Ping when replying 12:53, 14 January 2015 (UTC)

@Darylgolden: Thanks a lot for informing me! Now I can <sup> it :P -- MalaysiaboyChat 13:46, 14 January 2015 (UTC)

Re: Happy Children's Day![edit]

Hey, long time no see, haha, I'm fine, no need to worried, just having a frequent doctor appoinment. :P Btw, thanks for the wish (although I'm not a kid/child anymore), how was your college?? I'm suggesting you to try smelling Yu Yee oil then your runny nose would be fine. ^^ ~ Muffin Wizard ;) 12:27, 20 November 2015 (UTC)

Great, hope they could help me here soon. *Gonna die if just me going to develop most of the Malaysian articles. >< Haha, so many genius there? Must be on your class the majority are Chinese students rite, cause I see many Chinese are very "pro" especially in maths and science? Btw, thanks (: ~ Muffin Wizard ;) 13:30, 20 November 2015 (UTC)
Ahh, I forgot you were studying in MRSM, thanks for helping! Btw, how was your life in a hostel, did you found or ever heard any "spooky things" at late of the night as I see many MRSM schools have always this kind of story?? :) ~ Muffin Wizard ;) 14:11, 20 November 2015 (UTC)
LOL, ya, that the most thing I hate when our roommate have already sleeping while we're still opening eyes at the late of midnight. But that still better than during at my house (when I'm still studying in secondary schools), that moment while you're watching the Pimp My Ride, then suddenly you smell a very attractive perfume (like a girl perfume), followed by the sound of a woman crying and laughing not far from the road in front of my house. Haha, because of too afraid, I'm quickly close up the TV and running so fast to my bed. Probably I assume that was a Pontianak or Penanggalan, really creepy. >< ~ Muffin Wizard ;) 14:55, 20 November 2015 (UTC)
Why, you're afraid?? Muahahaha. While last night I'm just sleeping like usual even I just talking some stories related on "ghost" to you recently. :P ~ Muffin Wizard ;) 00:46, 21 November 2015 (UTC)

Welcome to Wikipedia Malaysia Meetup[edit]

Hello & welcome to Peninsular Malaysia (from the comment u write at the meetup main page :P) !

So yeah, most probably we will be having our Kuala Lumpur Meetup 2 on 22 April 2017 tentatively. I hope you can come & make it ;) .. I will let you know once after we have finalized the meetup details. Still looking for an appropriate venue for that. Please inform/invite any of your Wikipedian friends or any friend who wish to contribute to Wikipedia as well. Thanks! Chongkian (talk) 15:51, 8 April 2017 (UTC)

@Chongkian: Thanks for the heads up. Actually, I'll be there on 16th so I'm really looking forward to participate the meetup anytime soon. I'll be in Petaling Jaya for my studies. Is it too far away from KL? Anyway, hope my schedule is ok with this. >< Soo excited -- MalaysiaboyChat 16:04, 8 April 2017 (UTC)
Yo Malaysiaboy, this is the Wikipedia Kuala Lumpur 2 Meetup page: Wikipedia:Meetup/Kuala Lumpur 2
Anyhow, can you make the same meetup page also in ms.wikipedia.org in Malay language? (I'm not even sure what meetup is in Malay language? "Pertemuan Wikipedia Kuala Lumpur 2"?) So that we can reach out more to Malay-speaking Wikipedians. Of course that ms page will be linked to the en page that I've created. And later we will have 2 sessions (en language & ms language) separately. Thanks a lot! Cheers.
Chongkian (talk) 06:54, 12 April 2017 (UTC)
@Chongkian: Fantastic! I've created the page here but I'm not that sure what suits best for meetup in Malay so I'll go with yours for now. However, I'll arrive at the Penisular on next Friday and hopefully I'll find my find to the venue on the next day. Anyway, cheers! -- MalaysiaboyChat 09:23, 12 April 2017 (UTC)
