Best Concert DVD Ever!

Though my Mandarin is only so-so, I have always loved the old Mandarin songs. Although it was kinda romantic to listen to the scratchy originals, it was better to find good current singers giving these oldies a sound rendition. Paula Tsui Siu Foong dabbled in them a bit. To sing these old songs, one had to have a certain kind of voice, the timbre needs to be just right. Many years ago I discovered Tsai Chin and she was certainly born in the wrong era - but thankfully for us, she is with us now. She has the voice.

I have many of her albums and a few of her concerts. Then I came across her latest offering (remember the cover so you don't buy the wrong edition). It was her concert in HK in 2007. Its a journey of great Mandarin songs through the years, and she threw in a few of her own good songs too. Its a 3 DVDs set. Its certainly the most polished concert performance. The songs selection was right on. Not many singers can perform for 3 hours straight with no props or dancers. She was engaging and even funny at times. A solitary figure with great orchestration. Can watch over and over again. I have some of her other concerts DVDs and they are not as good. This DVD was the best buy for years. You don't need to be a senior citizen to enjoy it.

p/s her upcoming concert at Genting, selling fast, extra shows added:

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…
