Only In Singapore
A True Or False Quiz, Can You Get All Correct?

1) Large sized woks will no longer be sold in Singapore. The size and shape apparently made it easy to convert them to satellite dishes. This may actually imply that the wok must have been invented more than just for cooking purposes. Maybe 500 years ago, the Chinese were already communicating with alien forefathers while making their tummies warm. As usual, the Prime Minister's office decreed that smart and savvy Singaporeans must be protected from undesirable foreign broadcasters. I guess, soon, you cannot place a large order of Sing Chow Chowmein, cause the chef would have cook the bloody thing twice on his smallish wok!!

2) In order to maintain their record of cases won, the Lees have now decided to sue the orangutan from Singapore Zoo. After barring certain foreign publications earlier in the week (the government imposed a rule requiring all foreign publications to place a bond and appoint a local rep, so that they can be sued should the need arises), the orangutan has been served for being anti-government. The O.U. was found to be not wearing white shirt and white pants during National Day celebrations. The O.U. will probably be found guilty by the High Court and have its passport seized, failure to produce a passport will result in additional rule breaches (overstaying without a permit, plus entertaining or in employment without a proper permit, plus not filing appropriate returns). Probably the O.U. will be pursued till it becomes a bankrupt, and subsequently will be barred from running for political office.

3) Sir Elton John and his life partner were detained when arriving into Changi airport last week. They were strip-searched an questioned. Apparently, outwardly professing to have had gay sex is a crime and hence constitute a bad influence in Singapore. Elton John had planned to attend a charity event in Singapore and together with his partner, were detained under Sections 377 and 377a of the penal code.

4) Minister of Health will push through to the Parliament to legalise oral sex, which is archaically still illegal in Singapore. At the same time, the Minister will petition to make penile-anal sex prohibitive for Singaporeans - offenders will have to wear pink coloured jump suits and do community service for 50 hours such as cleaning the display windows of DKNY, Dolce & Gabanna, etc.. Anyway, back to the oral sex thing, the push to legalise was prompted from research indicating oral sex could prevent the spread of HIV as it is deemed to be safer than penile-vaginal sex.

5) NEWater, the name given for reclaimed wastewater in Singapore, is wastewater that has been treated by a dual-membrane osmotic technique. This produces drinkable water. A premium line of NEWater is in the offing, to be priced at 7x the price for normal NEWater. The premium line will be wastewater from politicians from PAP, only Deputy Ministers and Full Ministers "samples" will be collected for processing. The premium line will be called: NEWater - Cabinet Sauvignon 2006.

6) A Singaporean contractor who was surveying the site for the first integrated resort project at Marina Bay, exclaimed that the government will have to import a lot of sand from Malaysia for the project. Following much hoo-hah, the contractor was appeased when explained that the Las Vegas Sands Casino will not be built using primarily sand only.

p/s the mostly TRUE stories were numbers: 1, 4 and 6 .... sigh...

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…
