Fly Me To The Moon

Banned Airlines By E.U.

When you have the planes keep diving into the Red Sea or having pilots that don't take-off and land properly, you say enough is enough. Various EU countries have come up with their own list of banned airlines from their skies. While we in Asia are still generous to "errors/poor standard practices" by certain airlines (I mean a couple of pilots playing mahjong and putting the plane on auto-pilot is macho-bravissmo right?), it might be good for us to pay heed to traveling on the following banned airlines, particularly when you are on a budget or when you are the adventurous type.... Now, where is my Citation when I need it the most?!!

By France
Air Koryo (North Korea)
Air Saint-Thomas (US Virgin Islands)
International Air Service (Liberia)
Air Mozambique (Mozambique)
Transairways (Mozambique)
Phuket Airlines (Thailand)

By Belgium
Africa Lines (Central African Republic)
Air Memphis (Egypt)
Air Van Airlines (Armenia)
Central Air Express (Congo)
ICTTPW (Libya)
International Air Tours (Nigeria)
Johnsons Air (Ghana)
Silverback Cargo Freighters (Rwanda)
South Airlines (Ukraine)

Each of the European countries have their own list of banned airlines, and pressure to reveal them have been mounting in order for the public to be aware of the airlines censured. In a few months time a more complete list of banned airlines by EU-wide-unified should be finalised. Right now, there is a bit of confusion over which airline can still fly here or there ... no wonder they end up diving into the Red Sea.

My Master, A National Treasure

REPOST:  Its been more than two years since I posted on my sifu. This is probably the most significant posting I had done thus far that does not involve business or politics. My circle of close friends and business colleagues have benefited significantly from his treatment.

My Master, Dr. Law Chin Han (from my iPhone)

Where shall I start? OK, just based on real life experiences of those who are close to me. The entire Tong family (Bukit Kiara Properties) absolutely swear that he is the master of masters when it comes to acupuncture (and dentistry as well). To me, you can probably find many great dentists, but to find a real Master in acupuncture, thats a whole different ballgame.

I am not big aficionado of Chinese medicine or acupuncture initially. I guess you have to go through the whole shebang to appreciate the real life changing effects from a master.

My business partner and very close friend went to him after 15 years of persistent gout problem, he will get his heavy attacks at least…

PUC - An Assessment

PUC has tried to reinvent itself following the untimely passing of its founder last year. His younger brother, who was highly successful in his own right, was running Pictureworks in a number of countries in Asia.

The Shares Price Rise & Possible Catalysts

Share price has broken its all time high comfortably. The rise has been steady and not at all volatile, accompanied by steady volume, which would indicate longer term investors and some funds already accumulating nd not selling back to the market.

Potential Catalyst #1

The just launched Presto app. Tried it and went to the briefing. Its a game changer for PUC for sure. They have already indicated that the e-wallet will be launched only in 1Q2018. Now what is Presto, why Presto. Its very much like Lazada or eBay or Alibaba. Lazada is a platform for retailers to sell, full stop. eBay is more for the personal one man operations. Alibaba is more for wholesalers and distributors.

Presto links retailers/f&b/services originators with en…

How Long Will The Bull Lasts For Malaysia

Are we in a bull run? Of course we are. Not to labour the point but I highlighted the start of the bull run back in January this year... and got a lot of naysayers but never mind:

p/s: needless to say, this is Jing Tian ... beautiful face and a certain kind of freshness in her looks and acting career thus far

I would like to extend my prediction that the bull run for Bursa stocks should continue to run well till the end of the year. What we are seeing for the past 3 weeks was a general lull where volume suddenly shrunk but the general trend is still intact. My reasons for saying so:

a) the overall equity markets globally will be supported by a benign recovery complemented by a timid approach to raising rates by most central banks

b) thanks to a drastic bear run for most commodities, and to a lesser extent some oil & gas players, the undertone for "cost of materials" have been weak and has pr…
