World Cup 2006 Update
Quarter Finals

Germany vs Argentina
At the start of the tournament, only 20% of Germans surveyed believed that their team can win the cup. I am certain the figure is up to 80 or 90 percent by now. The trouble is, Germans are playing well and may have peaked too soon. If its the spectacular to win the match, then Argentina has more flair and firepower. Neutral on this game, slightly favouring Argentina to win as this team is the least cynical of all Argies teams for the past 20 years. When you have the skill and ability, you need not resort to cynical play.

Italy vs Ukraine
I was a neutral on Italians before. The grave injustice in their match with Australia makes me wish I was a Buddhist, then karma should prevail and have the Italians playing well this match and then losing to a very dubious penalty to Ukraine. Italy can go home for all I care.

England vs Portugal
The team that coached itself. What is the value of having Ericksson? If he plays Rooney as a lone striker again, England should lose. If they play a 4-4-2 with Rooney and Crouch upfront, England will win. England needs Crouch to hold the ball up for flicks and allow others to run into spaces. Needs Joe Cole and Lennon at wings to run at defenders and draw Portugal's defence wide. Hargraves should not play. Same with Carrick. Although I was brought up following the Red Devils, England should lose thanks to Ericksson, unless he follows what I have written... lol... Its a match, more for England to lose, rather than Portugal to win.

Brazil vs France
The old foggies got lucky, nothing to write home about Vive La blues shyyytt... Go home and eat your innards and fine cheeses. You stink. I mean, you stunk, and you stink.

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…
