Beginning October 2008, Malaysians are now given the freedom to shift mobile network without the hassle and worries of not being able to retain their existing mobile number, thanks to the initiative of Malaysian Government in implementing the Mobile Number Portability (MNP).
MNP is a widely acceptable tool to encourage healthy competition among mobile service providers which is already successful in several Asia Pacific countries. Malaysia is the second country in South East Asia after Singapore to have MNP.
Our etracker platform is mobile number portability ready, which simply means reliable and accurate delivery of text messages to the intended recipients regardless of which mobile service provider they have changed to.

Mention Vietnam, one would envisage phở noodle soup or sweet Vietnamese girls in their traditional garments, the Áo Dài. Situated in South East Asia region, Vietnam has yet to grab much limelight in the past compared to its neighboring countries such as Thailand and Cambodia. However things have started to change as global conglomerates are beginning to shift their attention to Vietnam ever since the restrictions on economic activities and trade has begun to erode. In fact, Vietnam is now the largest producer of cashew nuts with a one-third global share, second largest rice exporter in the world after Thailand and third-largest oil producer in Southeast Asia.
Ranked as the tenth most populous country in Asia, Vietnam is inhabited by a staggering number of over 86 million people. Targeting at 86 million end-users, telecommunication industry is one of the fastest emerging industry in Vietnam. Within only eight months this year, mobile subscribers in Vietnam reached the mark of 52.4 million. With current mobile penetration rate at about 60%, it is anticipated that it will increase to 70% by end of this year making it to 65 millions subscribers.

The Melbourne Cup
There was an indescribable feeling when our hands were clutching the Cup, so distinguished that it intensified and accentuated an overwhelming nondescript excitement and a sense of achievement penetrated through our subconscious; reminding us to take great cognizance of the Cup. A sudden flash filled our minds and all we could see were the eyes of the champion, Viewed, infused with vengeance and not fear; the vast and focused determination on the finish line. There wasn’t a drop of sweat, let alone any signs of fright. The only feeling coursing through Viewed was its desire to be unleashed from the barrier releasing all its force, strength and command on his so-called opponents. In Viewed’s context, they were never opponents as the race could only end with one result; to cross the line first and only first.
No expressions could recite how honored we are to have had a feel of the Cup, what more having an immemorial photo opportunity with Dato’ Tan Chin Nam, the 4 time winner of Melbourne Cup. Dato’ Tan, the owner of Viewed (the horse which claimed the prestigious award), is also the Honorary Life President of GOLDIS Berhad.
The Founders of MACROKIOSK shall perpetually be a support to Dato’ Tan Chin Nam and the Melbourne Cup. Our utmost gratitude and congratulations!The Cup:
The three-handled Gold Cup comprised of nothing less than 1.65kg of 18-carat gold valued at $125,000.00 Australian Dollar.
