DIY : Make your own phone case

So I’ve been using an iPhone 4 for the longest time, and part of the fun of having a popular phone is the abundance of cheap cases. I cleaned up my cupboard recently and tossed out cases that were broken or spoilt. I have some that were given my friends while others were bought.

(Quick promo of the case on the top left – it’s a high quality etched case by local cartoonist/blogger Jian of MiaoWafuPafu and he has various designs for iPhone 4/4s and Samsung S3/S4. Click on this link to check it out!)

FireShotcapture_073TwitterBackupwww_zestful_org_twitterbackup.png

Okay, first you will have to setup a new wordpress blog or you can use your existing one. In this tutorial, i set up a new wordpress blog at TwitterBackup to separate my tweets from my blog posts.

If you’re using a separate blog for your twitter posts first thing you need to do is go to the Settings > Discussion and Uncheck “Allow people to post comments on new articles”. This is so that people can’t comment on your posts.

[Tutorial] Link Maybank Visa Debit Card with Paypal

LinkMaybankDebittoPaypal1.jpg

Finally! After numerous complaints from users, Maybank’s Visa Debit card can finally be linked to Paypal. You can use it to verify your Paypal account and hopefully withdraw successfully.

I can’t really say if its possible to withdraw funds from Paypal or not because I’ve not tried it but what I can tell you is that it IS possible to link your Maybank debit card with some easy steps.

Click on the pics to view a bigger screenshot.

Step One
Login to your Maybank2u account. Look under Utilities and Click on Maybankcard Secure Online Shopping Registration

Step Two
Select which card you want to use. In this case, I only have one card, so that is chosen by default.

Fill in the MSOS Password (has to be between 6-8 characters) and confirm

Fill in the Personal Assurance Message. This message will appear when you are asked for your password while shopping online. I think this is to ensure that is Maybank asking for your password and not some phishing site. There must not be any characters other than a-z.

Fill in the Expired Date, CVV, Hint & Answer

In the My Account tab, click Profile and Add/Edit Credit or Debit Card.

Step Six
Okay this is important : Wait for about ONE DAY before doing the following steps**

Login to your Maybank2u again and click on Accounts & Banking, then click on your Account number for your Account Details.

Then click on Debit Card History. You should then see an entry with the word “Paypal”. The code is the 4 numbers before the word Paypal.

Eg: PREAUTH SALE 8921PAYPAL-*EXPUSE DATED 06/08/09
Paypal Code : 8921

**If you check your account too early, you might not see the details of the transaction and would not be able to get the code

Step Seven
Log in to www.paypal.com and click on Profile, then Add/Edit Credit or Debit Card.

Click on Enter Paypal Code and enter the code you obtained in Step Six.

Success!
And now you have successfully linked your Maybank Visa Debit Card to your Paypal. You will get the refund of USD1.95 to your Paypal account.

:: NOTES ::

  • If you have problems linking your card, check to make sure the details of the card is all correct – especially the Address. If all else fails, call the Maybank customer service.
  • I have no idea why USD 1.00 is also deducted along with the USD 1.95 when we verify the card. I didn’t have this extra charge when verifying with Al-rajhi Visa Debit Card
  • I have not tried to withdraw from Paypal to my card but I’ll be happy to hear your comments if you did try. Remember that Paypal charges USD5 per withdrawal.
