Go See Marley & Me!!!

I was doing nothing on Sunday and wandered around Mid Valley early enough not to have to queue for tickets at the movies. Don't know what to watch, but hey, got Jennifer Aniston, how bad can it be!? Half expecting a romantic comedy, omg, so glad I didn't have a date. It was fun going two thirds of the movie, its funny, its a story about living and growing up with possibly the worst dog in the world, totally un-trainable. The last third, also the best bit, omg I haven't had to leak so much tears for gawd knows how long!!!

The final verdict, possibly the best movie I have seen for a very long time, and that includes Slumdog Millionaire, Ip Man and Red Cliff! Dog lovers will love it, non-dog lovers really should watch it, kids of all ages should watch it too - it dispenses things like responsibility, unconditional love, loyalty, stress, grieving, ...without being preachy or stuffing it down our throats. It is also pragmatically honest about the romance in marriage, the hard work in being a parent and the stress to balance what's important in life. All of that in a movie, quite unbelievable.

The movie was based closely on a real life journalist John Grogan's best selling book, Marley & Me, about life and love with the world's worst dog.

The movie is not a chick flick, its not overly melodramatic, does not attempt to squeeze the maximum sympathy or empathy by milking the tears, it is very honest. Its a feel good movie in the end with many funny bits, kids and teens will learn a lot from this movie. Funnily, a movie without sex, drugs or violence that entertains and educates without being preachy. Guys be prepared to bawl, ladies, don't wear make up. Enjoy. Movie of the year so far!

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…
