How to Setup Trusted Contacts in Facebook

~ Posted on Wednesday, February 18, 2015 at 7:53 AM ~

Was tinkering around with my settings when I saw this feature called 'Trusted Contacts'. Apparently this feature has been in FB since 2013.

Excerpt from Facebook post:

If you ever have trouble logging into your Facebook account, you'll have your trusted contacts as an option to help you out. You just need to call your trusted contacts and let them know you need their help to regain access to your account. Each of them can get a security code for you with instructions on how to help you. Once you get three security codes from your trusted contacts, you can enter them into Facebook to recover your account. With trusted contacts, there’s no need to worry about remembering the answer to your security question or filling out long web forms to prove who you are. You can recover your account with help from your friends.

Anyway, long story short, I thought of making a tutorial on how to setup trusted contacts for your Facebook account as well. So here it goes:

* Go to the top right of your page, look for the drop-down arrow, click on it and click on 'Settings'. Go for the 'Security' feature.

* Select Trusted Contacts.

* You will see the following screen explaining to you what is Trusted Contacts.

* Click on 'Choose Trusted Contacts' and you will be prompted with a field to type in between 3 to 5 contacts in your personal FB profile. You must enter AT LEAST 3 contact persons.

Some tips to select good trusted contacts:

~ Choose people you trust, like friends you’d give a spare key to your house.

~ Choose people you can reach without using Facebook, ideally over the phone or in person, since you’ll need to contact them when you can’t log in.

~ Choose more people to help you. The more friends you choose, the more people who can help you when you need it.

* You will see the profiles you added shown below. You may enter up to 5 contacts. Click on the 'Confirm' button once you have decided to proceed.

* You will be prompted again with a screen to key in your Facebook password.

* You will then see your Trusted Contacts. You can edit or remove all in future should you have any changes in the Trusted Contacts.

I hope this article serves to help you in setting up the trusted contacts in your Facebook profile!

Let's Learn Bahasa & Cantonese - Happy New Year!

~ Posted on Monday, February 16, 2015 at 8:06 AM ~

Ever since I started kindergarten at 6 years old, I have been attending public schools (main language is Bahasa Malaysia) and during my earlier years, I mixed around with a lot of Malay friends and even spoke Bahasa with my elder brother at home (he also attends public schools), even to this day. So Bahasa Malaysia used to be my main language other than Cantonese and later on English (brushed up more when I met my hubby then boyfriend through snail mails, I had to practise and brush up my English as he doesn't speak Cantonese) Anyway, I think it is fun to be able to practise back and sharing what I know with those of you who are interested.

And so, here goes our next lesson: HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Chinese New Year is coming up in few days time, so this is just in time for you to practise and try out greetings your fellow Chinese friends, colleagues, relatives :)

Breadmaker Recipe - Home Made White Bread

~ Posted on Friday, February 13, 2015 at 6:56 AM ~

For this post, I am sharing my 1st breadmaker recipe, Home Made White Bread. We were out grocery shopping at Tesco when hubby beckoned me over to have a look at some breadmakers sold there. After a quick Whatsapp session with my buddy (she's using one too), we decided to get the Tesco breadmaker (model BM10). I got this recipe online and followed it exact to the dot.

Ingredients:
* 1 1/3 cups of room temp water
* 1 tbsp of sunflower oil (for my 2nd attempt, I replaced this with VCO)
* 1 tsp of salt
* 2 tbsp of sugar
* 3 1/3 cups of bread flour/high Protein flour/high gluten flour
* 2 tsp dried yeast


Methods: 
* The key is to put in the liquid ingredients, followed by semi liquid and finally the dry ingredients. So add water follow by oil, flour, salt and sugar.
* Tap the pan lightly to settle the flour.
* Make a small hole at the center of the flour heap. Add the yeast there.
* Lock the breadpan in the bread maker.
* Set the program to "Basic" follow by loaf size and select the crust color. (I didn't change any settings, and leave it as default)
*  The bread maker will complete the task in 3 hours.

Outcome:

This recipe is definitely for keeps!
