1945 - Isn't That A War Game?

Of course I am refering to the 19% and 45% bumiputra share of economic wealth debate. The government's estimate is of course the lower figure. The ASLI report basically questioned the methodology of the government in coming up with their figure. Naturally, this kind of thing is as significant as finding out that Hang Tuah and Hang Jebat were actual Chinese gangsters (hint... hint..).

In my opinion, the government and UMNO cannot just come out and the ASLI report is rubbish, where is the evidence??!! Malaysians are not stupid. People who refute without any explanation are just "dying chickens kicking the rice pot cover". I am not even going to bother to get both sides to fully explain their methodology YET, ... I would like the government to give the people their course of action should "certain figures" come out. That's because the NEP was continued based on the 19%.

So, say the government and respective bodies agree on an independent globally recognised team of experts in methodology (I know, that is very unlikely to happen), what I would like to know is what the government will do if the eventual figure is:
a) 15%
b) 19%
c) 30%
d) 40%
e) 45%

For each of the eventual figure, there must be a course of action to be taken, right??!! If the government does not even know what the course of action will be for each of these figures, WHY BOTHER arguing over the figure. That's because even if we can get proper independent verification, of say a 35%, the government can still end up doing tai-chi (i.e. nothing).

The questions won't die down, the Chinese and Indian coalition parties may not be saying much but it is certainly dicey and this is the time for Badawi to show his political will, political integrity and be the bigger person to revolutionise the history of the country ... and somebody please... please .. shut KJ up.

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…
