Everybody Hates Me! I Wonder Why!

"We have top players and, sorry if I'm arrogant, we have a top manager." -Jose Mourinho, presenting himself as Chelsea's new manager.

"Please don't call me arrogant, but I'm European champion and I think I'm a special one."

"If I wanted to have an easy job...I would have stayed at Porto - beautiful blue chair, the Uefa Champions League trophy, God, and after God, me."

"I saw their players and manager go for a lap of honour after losing to us in their last home game. In Portugal if you do this, they throw bottles at you."
- on M.U.

"Pressure? What pressure? Pressure is poor people in the world trying to feed their families. There is no pressure in football"

I think he is one of these people who is a voyeur. He likes to watch other people. There are some guys who, when they are at home, have a big telescope to see what happens in other families. He speaks, speaks, speaks about Chelsea." - on Wenger.

My Take - As a M.U. fan since the early 70s, in the days of Macari and Gordon Hill to Whiteside and Steve Coppell, our rivalry was with Liverpool. However, that was a good rivalry, there was respect no matter how grudging. M.U. fans have now rooted for even Arsenal and Liverpool (or any teams for that matter) whenever they take on Chelsea, not so much that it would help M.U. win titles but just because ... When you are the top team, you get targeted and abused just like M.U. was in the 90s and a few years back. In Chelsea's case, you have not just a "top team" assembled overnight, but with a talented manager who thinks he sits next to God, and with dubious monopoly money. I guess, everybody who supports Chelsea should know that put Roman and Jose together, it does not have to be Chelsea, it could have been Watford or even Sunderland, but Roman wanted a London club (he hates to travel to the country-side /industrial towns). There i no history, no struggle, weak roots among the players (which explains the way they play... drawn purely by salary and ego-fulfilment ... club, what club?)

I do not think MU played a better game for its 2nd leg against AC Milan this morning than Chelsea's last match with New Castle. Some times, our favourite club played a lousy game, whether we like it or not.

What about publishing a collection of quotations from your Hair Dryer (c/w his most flattering photo)??

Yes, M.U. played poorly and does not deserve to get into the finals even on the first leg's performance. As for Hair Dryer, ok la, his comments are certainly not as arrogant as Special One, plus he has proven himself for over 30 years, at Aberdeen, and nearly getting sacked in the first couple of years at M.U. before the strategic grooming of the babes from reserves and juniors propel him to superstardom.

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…
