Two Ways To Ward Off Mozzies

This is another public service announcement. How to effectively ward off mozzies. This is especially relevant in light of the many of us who have been bitten by the dengue mozzies.

The first product highly recommended is a Korean disinfectant called FLOOR MASTER, it has a little label "y-slimz" on it. To my knowledge it is only available at Jaya Jusco. I think I am going to cause some hoarding and clear their shelves here. Floor Master has about 4 different solutions, pink, blue, lemon and green. They specialise in using non-toxic herbal remedies. The pink one is good at warding off ants and lipas. For mozzies, get the green bottle. It has tea tree oil. Its great against mozzies, cockroaches and ants as well. It has anti-bacterial quality. How it wards off mozzies, well, its all in the smell of citronella.

Just a small cap full for half a pail of water, mop and don't rinse, let it dry on its own. Works for up to 3 days, then mop again. Another way is to put the same into a sprayer and spray your bathroom wall tiles. Smells great as well.

I think by the time you go to Jusco, the green thing should be sold out. Try the other solutions as well, they are almost as good, but the green is supposed to be the most effective.
The second secret is to use Listerine, use the original amber coloured one. Do not mix any water, hence its pretty expensive if you calculate that way. Its non toxic. Simply pour the Listerine into a spray bottle and spray. Not so cost effective for mopping the floor but useful when you are out barbecuing or on the beach. Wards off flies and mozzies. It's safe to spray around food and kid's play areas! Mosquitoes will stay away for 2 or more days after you spray. You can even spray inside your dog's kennels to keep mosquitoes away from your pets. Try not to spray on wood, you could spray the towel or blanket you're going to sit on outside at a beach or garden. Another tip, now you can even dab some on a hankie when you go to a nice al fresco dining restaurant. Just wet the hankie, put it in a plastic bag, and when you are eating, place it on your lap or near you - no more pesky insect repellent spray on your skin.

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…
