try jajah - the new way to call

try jajah.

my colleague mentioned something about this jajah VoIP-enabled phone-to-phone calls the other day, and I happened to receive an international call last night from USA, without even realising it's connected via VoIP (ie. the connection is very clear, no breaking, at least for that phonecall). wish I had known of this service much earlier, imagine the savings on the international phone-bills....

VoIP is, in my own words, phone calls connected via the Internet, instead of our regular telecom operators. in the past, the closest service that came close to this was skype... where people make free/ or low-cost phone calls from pc-to-pc/ pc-to-phone (with the aid of pc-mics. and headsets).

now with the new jajah, it's amazing!
all you have to do is register your own mobile phone or landline number with jajah on the web, then enter the number you wish to call, and jajah will first ring your own phone, after you pick up, it'll ring your recipient's phone number. once the call is activated, you don't have to stay in front of the pc. this is all charged at a super low rate for zone 1 countries (both landlines & mobile) - USA, canada, china, hong kong, singapore and taiwan. plus, if both zone 1 parties are active registered jajah users, then the phone call is free! (even for international-calls to above-stated countries).

I'm so excited about this, just have to share it here.
go read up the terms & conditions on the web, try the 5-min free trial, get familiar and register! (I tried, no charge)
- free trial:
- sign up as jajah user:

- read up on how to qualify for free calls:
- countries and calling rates:
- about jajah:

fyi - my mobile phone and home phones are registered numbers now. so if you try calling me using jajah, it'll be free when we become "active" users :) if not, calls are just 2.5 cents (US$) per min. for all zone 1 countries - that means only US$3 for 2 hours talk-time!!

a matter of perspective

black vs white, true vs false, right vs wrong.... how you look at things determines what it is to you. there is no absolute - many a time, direct opposites can co-exist at the same time, it's just which side you are on, which side of it you choose to see or believe.

so, what is it you see here?

i'm the typical girl who always flip to the last few pages of a magazine to read the horoscopes/astrology forecasts. i don't always believe everything printed on those pages, but it's sure fun reading those little snippets. i guess all of us like to see good things happening and avoid bad ones, so i only believe in forecasts when they say good things. as for negative ones... i'd always brush them aside thinking, "nah, how can general horoscope readings come true for everyone? i mean imagine how many zillions of other people out there in the entire universe who share the same star sign as me?" :P

having said that, i just wanna recommend an astrology forecast site (thanks to carolyn!) - astrology zone by susan miller. i stumbled upon a friend's horoscope monthly-forecast for july 2006 on her blog and found it uncannily true for her.... so out of curiosity, i clicked through to read my own forecast too. wow! i have to say, susan miller sure writes some very accurate stuff!!

i can't say for all, but do check it out for yourself if you're keen.
almost all 4 - 5 colleagues whom i sent the above link to, said the forecast has quite a high level of accuracy for them.

pls don't get too hung up on them though... it's just for fun :)
