Advanced IT competency is necessary to obtain CompTIA’s mastery certification. A wide range of skills and knowledge in multiple areas of expertise is required to successfully complete this certification program. Extensive on-the-job training is a must, as the test will include questions that focus on the practical implementation of intermediate to advanced concepts.
What some may find interesting about this CompTIA certification is the fact that no certifications must be earned prior to earning it. Although professional, specialty and basic certifications will certainly increase your understanding of the topics at hand,candidates do not have to treat this as a pyramid program and can take the mastery exam at any time.
CompTIA currently only offers on mastery certification, Advanced Security Practitioner, which is designed primarily for security professionals who have acquired a large amount of job experience, training, and education related to the design, implementation, and administration of advanced security solutions. Topics such as business requirements, computing integration, and risk management will be applied toward the overall enterprise security area of competency. This is a vendor-neutral certification, meaning it is accepted as a standard form of accreditation by IT companies and certification vendors around the world.
Although it is a stand-alone certification, the difficulty level of the information presented is noticeably higher. Although specific CompTIA certification training is not required, it is necessary in order to achieve success with this certification and the benefits that will come about from earning the certification. Because it a mastery series certification, its acquisition will weight heavier compared to other CompTIA certifications, and IT companies will view it as a depiction of the knowledge, skill, and experience you have acquired in the IT security field.

Beach volley ball is one of it and 4WD Beach driving is my ultimate dream. No.. I still don’t have a chance to own a beach house or 4WD Beach driving yet.

How often do you go for holiday? Generally, a typical company will only give approx. 25 days of annual leave. Indirectly, you are only allow to have 25/365 x 100 = 6.8% of opportunity in a year to make something special in your life. If you are lucky to work in a country where it has a lot of public holiday, the percentile will increase by a little. Saturday and Sunday are not counted as holiday as it typically means, “no alarm clock” day or “I just enjoy doing nothing” day!
When I go on holiday, combining breakfast and lunch is kind of common to me, or as many called it brunch. To many, brunch means combining 2 meals into 1 but to me, brunch means, having 2 meals at 1 time. How can I afford to miss a meal especially I am suppose to keep my stomach happy during this period, right? Give my stomach a break too! 2 meals at 1 time?? Oh yea, this is what I have, not long ago at Sainbury’s Aberdeen.
2 x pastries (blueberry muffins and sorta raisin bread) and a drink for breakfast
Fish and Chips for lunch..with yummy sauce
With the combination of various sauces
Chicken Tika Masala with Yellow Rice and Pita Bread .. again for lunch.. I love this most! The gravy.. yum yum..
And.. Cafe Mocha as a closing drink..
How’s that? Is it brunch or breakfast + lunch + dinner to you? This only cost about £ 38 and it proves that I still have bottomless stomach .. hehe..

Flying to Paris for romantic dinner, enjoying dessert in Belgium and having coffee in San Francisco. Isn’t that wonderful if we can ever do that? No, I still cannot afford to do that but occasionally, something similar come to my mind. Having Western appetizer, Chinese main course and maybe Italian dessert but it is kind of hard to get all under one roof.
Most of the time, I ended up do a take away instead of dining in the restaurant. Oh yea, I do this all the time if I am unable to decide on which restaurant to go to. Odd? I think as long as I can get my preferred food, why not? This time round, I went to Giraffe To Go for Salad, Spur Steak & Grill for appetizer and Starbucks for my drinks. Awesome dinner isn’t it?
This the the take away paper bag from Giraffe To Go..Guess what is inside?
Grilled Chicken, Tiger Prawn & Mango Salad £ 9.95 .. strongly recommended !
Crunchy Coconut Shrimp £ 5.65 .. nice n unique but slightly pricy
Take away boxes from Spur Steak & Grill
Main course? More like appetizer to me hehe.. Peri-peri sauce of Buffalo Wings £ 8.95
N lastly, my drinks.. Starbucks Caramel Frappuccino..bet you are familiar with this?
Hmm… this dinner cost me less than £ 50. Therefore, I would consider a satisfying dinner for me

As many of you might aware, I am stuck in Singapore for almost few weeks now. Yes, I am craving for Malaysian Food. Yes, I am craving for Penang food but what should I do when I am physically elsewhere. Not to mention if I need to travel to Penang, it will be quite a long journey by car.
Luckily I have friends here who directed me to Gurney Drive, not the Gurney Drive in Penang but in Singapore instead. The restaurant is strategically located at Suntec City, Singapore. Not so difficult to find but please be prepared to burn your wallet a little. Is it expensive? To me is not, but the concept is like eating Asian food in the middle of London.. get it?
Let me share with you about this place and what I ordered for my lunch..
This is the exterior of the shop.. clean, simple and nice
The interior of the restaurant with some ancient wall photos of Penang Street (must be from Macalister road)
View from the place where I seat
Now comes the Penang Menu.. duh..
You can find Penang Local Side Dishes.. something like appertizer to start with..
Or Penang Favourite Grill.. like ikan bakar, whatever that can bakar.. (bakar – grill in malay)
Or Penang Wok Fried..this must be char kuey teow.. hehe..
and dessert. In other words, this restaurant serves varieties of Penang food.
Now, let’s see what I ordered. From Side Dishes I ordered Lobak as my appertizer.. – S$4.20
From Grill Menu, I ordered Ikan Pari Bakar (Grilled Stingray) – S$7.90
From Wok-Fried Menu, I ordered char kuey teow with prawns and Chinese Sausage – S$6.90
And Gong Bao Mantis Prawn – S$ 6.90
And from Dessert Menu, I ordered Famous Penang Rojak S$4.20
Generally the food taste good and I would say the best I can get from outside Penang. Ohh.. there is one similarity with Penang food that is the potions are really small. Including GST and Service charge, I paid about S$36.60 for this meal.

Where do you normally got if you have long transit hours (>4hrs) ? Shopping? Finding a bench for a “not-so-comfy” sleep? or try to keep yourself occupied by playing your tablets etc? If my budget do not permit, I will normally find a long bench with an electrical sockets and of course in a hidden area.
If you travel with friends, try to take turn to rest or if you need to take a natural break. Do Not leave your belonging unattended or the airport security will think you are leaving a dangerous stuffs such as BOMB! .. That is the reason why you should not bring a lot of hand-carry..
Recently, I have to endure a period of 7 hours of transit in Doha airport. Luckily my budget permits for me to travel in Business Class. The whole idea of it is not to burn my money but to ensure I have a peaceful place to rest for the next 7 hours. Mom says I am crazy but I think it is well spent.
This is the entrance to Business Lounge (completely different terminal if you travel on economy class)
Nicely decorated entrance to greet you with water features.. wonder if this is feng shui stuffs?
Just to emphasize the labels.. kekeke.. this is to show-off to my relative..
If you wanna look classy, you can sit here for 7 hours.. but this spot is not for me..
Or looks busy like a so called business man style.. this place also is not my spot..
This one looks OK.. kinda comfy chair but again, too noisy.. really spoil the ambience
I ended up spent few hours here .. all because it is the closest to food corner
Feels like in Elementary School Canteen that I have to queue up for food. Or more like prison-style-buffet ??
What I love most is the free flow tea corner..
And sweet candies corners for those with sweet tooth.. ehem.. well, my kind or food
If you are a drinker, you get a free flow of hard liquor.. Too bad.. I am allergic to alcohol and it is against my religion..
Salad and pickles Corner.. if you follow my Twitter @tikkoss.. this is the place that makes me kills hundreds of prawns in one night.
All sort of “picklish” food for all you can eat
And dessert corner.. like a lot a lot a lot of dessert, this is just a section of it
Another section of dessert section..
AGAIN, another dessert corner..
And my whole experience in this lounge is ruined by this idiot who snores like nobody business in a public area. Guess what, he has been scolded by another guy who is trying to sleep beside him.
So, did I get comfy sleep? I only get a well fed stomach but still get a “not-so-comfy” sleep afterall. I nearly want to put salt in his mouth but mom managed to stop me. Arghhh.. I should bring my slingshot next time..
What do you normally do when you travel for long hours in a boring flight? As for me, I will probably spend long hours playing all my iPhone games or enjoying the in-flight entertainment (especially when my morphie juice drains out). Sleeping is really not my cup of tea but sometimes I do enjoy listening to orchestra from snoring sound during the pin drop silence moment in flight.
Ohh, one thing that really makes me excited is the feeding time. In long flight, I will hope for a decent food or it will definitely ruin my journey. How do the airlines expect their hungry passengers to be happy passengers, right? Before take off, the air stewardess will normally serves a glass of drink of your choice with a menu for you to select for.
During the recent flight from Doha to Singapore, I got to enjoy some ala arabic food.. or I would say more or less like asian + middle eastern food. These are what I ordered …
Thai Beef and Glass Noodle Salad – with salad and some raw fish and pitta bread. The plain water taste like plain water although it is Evian :S
Lamb Biryani with Arabic Dakous Sauce .. this one is really a thumb up! hmm.. I would prefer more fried onion tho..
Passenger at my side which happen to be my Mom chose this, Chicken Picatta with Lemon and Sage Scented Jus with Steam potatoes and witted spinach. Quite a mouthful when you order it but apparently it tasted better than it looks..:P
I suppose to get a cheese plate but I don’t know what happen to it but this Sweet Finale – Caramel Pudding taste good too! I love the caramel..
Last but not least, a dinky box of my fav. Godiva Chocolatier..
Did you see it yet? I embeded some tips in this post. If you want to go on anti-diet, travel as frequent as humanly possible. With that, I am sure in six months time, you will be fat ..I mean sexy like me..

If you follow my Twitter @tikkoss, you will probably realized that few weeks back, I did complaint that my current Bluetooth Headset, Plantronics Blackbeats 903+ is about time to retire. One side of the stereo headset broke due to ‘too’ loud music. Nah.. how can that be possible, right? I guess due to my poor in handling the fragile device.
Not long after that, I decided to place my order via online shop to get another version of Bluetooth Stereo Headset from Jabra. Of all the choices, I decided to land my money on this due to multiple reason. i) design – cooler ii) more advance iii) I cannot possibly get back the same headset I have right?
This is what I received after about a week of waiting, the Jabra Sport – Bluetooth Stereo Headset with FM capability.
Before I unwrapped, I have about 99.9% impression that this product is made in China . Looks so coooollll !!!
The product come with a stereo Bluetooth headset (duh..), few ear gels, charger and pouch .. this cost me about S$ 169??
Yea, a bit pricy for me but together with US Military Grade rain, shock and dust protection, the sound quality is surprisingly meet my standard. I will not compare it with Bose headset but this is just fit for my everyday running (if I’m not lazy) or alternatively, for my listening pleasure. Ohh.. the downside is the headset only last for 4 hours but hey, how long do you need right?
If you want to find out more, you can visit Jabra website but more interestingly, you might want to find out more about Endomondo. An apps that works almost the same like Nike+ and you get it for free, no additional device is required.
Walking around the city of wind, led me to this place, not far from Maiden Tower where I can try all Famous Azeri Food. Speaking of Maiden Tower and City of Wind, you must be wondering where am I and what I am talking about.
I was at Baku, Azerbaijan and I am here to enjoy most of the local delicacies. It is kind of hard to explain the geographical location of this place but I know it is situated beside Caspian Sea. Anyway, I guess in future post, I should write less and put more pictures. With that, I am sure I can share most of my travel photos and besides, words makes people sleep? Let’s try with this post first..
White Cheese, Goat Cheese and Salty Cheese
Azerbaijani Brinjal Chutney
Azeri Mimosa (not so sure )
Qutab (this one macam chapati abit .. hehe)
Various Meat Kebab
Fruits Basket, Fruits Pickles, Vegetables Salad, Preserved Meat, Raw Meat and Khalva drinks
Now you tell me, isn’t it challenging for me to maintain my weight? Don’t be surprise if you see fat TikkoSS walking around next time..
Few weeks ago, I was in Aberdeen. Due to long cravings for char siu and siu yok, I rushed all the way to Chinese restaurant to order few of these Chinese dishes. A close friend of mine reminded me not to have Chinese food in Aberdeen as it is will not be as good as what we have in Malaysia…but how bad can it be..
Without hesitation, I walked in to a Chinese Restaurant in the middle of Aberdeen City Centre, acknowledging it will be pricy, I ordered few dishes, just to ease my cravings. In a way, I am like ant seeing sugar. Not much of choices there, so, please don’t ask if I can order anything fancy.
Instead of having my dinner in the restaurant, I decided to place a take away order. The first one dish that I ordered is sweet and sour prawns. A lot of prawns in one container but the taste, I would say it is delicious. If fact, I think I can cook better.
Despite Aberdeen is just right beside seaside, the prawns are frozen type and not the fresh type. That makes the prawns taste more like tendery type of meat instead of fresh juice prawns. How disappointing considering I paid about 16 pound for few of these small little creatures.
The waitress suggests this SCALLOPS with vegetables. From the name, it paints a mental picture in me that the dishes will come with a lot a lot of scallops and few vegetables as side than main. When I opened the aluminium foil, the dish is more like VEGETABLES with scallops.
But this dish is surprisingly good, just a bit stingy on scallops. Ohh.. I can also sense that they put a lot of MSG. All because as soon as I finish eating it, I felt the thirst that lead me to drink a big glass of water.
Finally, I can’t resist my temptation and ordered this, Siu Yok, Char Siew and Roasted Duck rice. This on cost about 17 pound. The rice is just simple plain white rice and not the oily type and the meats, so so only lor. Instead of usual cucumber, they put lettuce as a replacement.
Overall, I will also not recommending anyone to try Chinese Food in Aberdeen but in the event that you need to ease your cravings, you can do so by punching big hole in your wallet for these dishes which are not as good as what we used to have in Malaysia.. now I miss Malaysia a lot..
