LeapEd Trust Schools Programme - An Education Transformation Programme to Develop Holistic Children

An Education Transformation Programme to Develop Holistic Children


Have you ever reminisced about your schooling days, where teachers were strict and would throw a chalk at you whenever they feel you weren’t attentive? The constant memorising of facts and figures for exams? Well, that is our Malaysian education system, where the person who’s best at memorising or who has a photographic memory will excel in academics. But if we continue down this path, then the future of our children is at stake.

Linksys Velop Intelligent Tri-Band Mesh WiFi System 3-Pack White (AC6600) Review

Linksys Velop Intelligent Tri-Band Mesh WiFi System 3-Pack White (AC6600) Review


Recently, to too long ago, I've gotten my Unifi upgraded to the 100Mbps package. To me, this is a major upgrade to my previous Streamyx 4Mbps package. Happiness all around at that time, until I realize the connection gets weaker aka slower when I'm using the net in my bedroom upstairs. Ever had that problem? What’s the cause of this? Blame it on our Streamyx default modem and router? Does the fact that the house has thick walls everywhere impeding the signal? 

It was awesome timing then that I found the Linksys Velop Intelligent Tri-Band Mesh WiFi System 3-Pack White (AC6600). What’s this Linksys Velop thingy you may ask? Well, that’s the purpose of my writeup today, to share on this really cool whole-home Wifi or mesh-router system.
