I guess the main reason why I don’t even step on Friendster is because this pisses me off. I find it really irritating when I have to switch to my own language everytime I visit the site (in the past), until one day I decided that I shouldn’t even bother looking at it.
I travel and stay around quite a fair bit between Singapore and Malaysia for the past few years. Recently, I was really disappointed by Singtel’s Mobile Broadband and that caused me not to be able to surf much in Singapore as I wasn’t even able to multitask by surfing 2 websites at 1 go. It’s that serious. Now I’ve got M1 Mobile Broadband, and it isn’t any better too. I’ll do a review about it another day — but you know it’s not going to be a good review. But seriously speaking, TMNet Streamyx performs way better than the damn Mobile Broadbands I got in terms of stability. Ok, thats not the point.
Speaking about languages, English has been my primary language since young and that makes Chinese my mother tongue. I don’t get to learn Malay (Or Bahasa) in school and thats why until today I’m no good at the language.
We’ve got facebook right now, and it’s doing way better in terms of surfing experience. Importantly, they don’t select a damn default language for me by my IP Address.
Good bye Friendster. Any other sites that make me read Malay as my default language, I’ll say good bye to you too. [Webmasters, get this into your brains please.]
