Best Mandarin Album Ever? ... 2V1G


When I got this from a friend, I thought it was some software thing that she wanted to promote to me. Well guess what 2V1G... I hope it means 2 Voices and I Guitar... cause I immediately thought that it could be 2 Virgins and 1 Gigolo!!?? 2V1G is the brainchild of producer Leslie Loh and Chow Kam Leong. It is an acoustic trio that plays classic Mandarin love songs in a simple 2-voices 1-guitar format. Roger Wang (the Guitarist), Winnie Ho (the Vocalist) and Regine Tai (the Vocalist) combined to create a sound that is both refreshing and easy-listening.

Recorded using the legendary AKR C12VR microphone and mastered by Keith Yip from Hong Kong, the mastering engineer for HK Audiophile Diva, Susan Wong. Stop reading, click on the link below to enjoy the brilliant music, delivery... its acoustic heaven.

The CD is pressed in Hong Kong by Sony DADC, one of the top CD duplication factories in HK.
It is an imported CD, priced at the normal standard CD price of RM39.90. 2V1G CDs will also be distributed in Singapore, Hong Kong, Taiwan and possibly Thailand.

I am not a very big listener of Mandarin songs though I am familiar with the more popular songs. The trio have basically maximised the enjoyment of these very popular songs by stripping down the music accompaniment to the barest bones. It allowed for the two outstanding vocals to caress the notes and bring out the nuances and intricate melodies. Well, its certainly the best Mandarin album I have heard in a very very very long time. I listened to the first song Coming Home sung by Winnie Ho, and got major goosebumps - its exactly the same impact when I first heard Eva Cassidy sang Over The Rainbow. Now go tell your friends.

Oh, btw, they are Malaysians ... and they deserve the great success I am sure they will have as they had to sell themselves constantly to win over the commercialised "managed artistes" syndrome ... they have just gotten distributors in Taiwan and HK. Cheers!!! Great talents unwasted through sheer perseverance. Those that cannot find the album, go buy online first.

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…
