Sidetracked


I came across the following line sometime back. I have tweaked it slightly. Maybe we all can reflect on what kind of person we are & our friends/lovers too:


I've learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she handles/treats the following:


a rainy day

the elderly

lost luggage

service staff / the maid

'....can tell a lot about a person ....' should not be a way the book is judged by it's cover. A person's feelings and views evolves and is indicative only in the time that the observation takes place, not the person in his/ her entirity.

grace,

yes agreed, but isnt that the only way we can tell a person???... at a specific point in time and based on history ... how else can we say what kind of person he/she is?? yes we are all unfinished products, people evolve, if and when they evolve, at a future point in time, i will say he is diff then ... no problem at all...
what the exercise really is about is what are your motivations and personal make up... you can hide many things from people by projecting a certain persona in front of friends and families and esp business associates ... the questions drive at what kind of values is CURRENTLY immersed and driving you as a person.

I met one of the space aspirant finalist Vanaja Sivasubramaniam recently.According to her the training was tough with total lack of sleep. A man/woman's true colours can be seen during this period. The cursing and back biting is unbelievable.
Pssst, she confide to me privately-
She was the number one to be chosen by the Russian for space but then ..........we all know la.

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…
