As If Jessica Alba Was Your Girlfriend

This place has been around a bit and is being discovered with utter joy. Its like you have managed to get Jessica Alba as your girlfriend, and now introducing her with glee to your friends. I am certainly not the first to discover this restaurant. Had the unbelievable set lunch at just RM22++ which was ridiculously priced (they could have charged me RM40++ and it would have still been worthwhile). It was so good, I had to go back twice to make sure I sample most of the things on the menu, they all sounded so good. So, went back for another lunch but ordered a la carte, and went back again at night this time for the degustation` menu (a sampling of almost everything on the menu).

Max is an ex-lawyer who found something more fulfilling to do. He has worked at a number of 5 star international hotels as chef and decided to do something on his own. For the food quality, its probably 30%-40% cheaper than at other similar outlets such as Cilantro (closed for renovation), Third Floor or Lafite. The items are generally good to sublime. As there are more than 20 items on the menu, I shall only name the sublime - get the lamb chops drizzling with heated mint sauce, the duck leg.. anyway he does it is fine, the unagi/duck liver and the yabbies. Though not a big fan of cooked fish, my friends said they were excellent as well. The desserts are pretty awesome too. Probably takes you 3-4 times to try everything, have the degustation` menu.

If you think the pictures I have stolen from other food bloggers look good, the food tastes even better. Wine list is more than decent, although the OZ list is pretty shabby, could have gotten better labels. They have an open kitchen concept, so you can view how they cook if your meal if you wish - adds to the charm. As its a pre-war shoplot, it has a lot of rustic charm. Great place to take your friends from overseas.

27 Jalan Tengkat Tong Shin, next to Sao Nam, 10 meters from the famous charsiew shop and 30 meters from Ngau Kee. Parking is a bitch, just pay the guys and park.

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…
