Market Strategists See Markets Rising By 46% By Year End!


Strategists at top houses are still seeing a much higher market closing by end of 2009. In fact the average prediction is an average of a further 46% bull run by end of 2009. Funny, if it was any other market conditions, calling for a year end closing that is 46% higher would have been a very major bullish call. But you don't hear of any trumpeting, I think everybody have been wrong so many times, they are quietly stating their predictions... but believe you me, if the markets surge 10%, all these strategists will be yelling their lungs off that their calls were prescient.

It is hard to trust the strategists who are paid huge sums of money to be wrong so many times. Its the world's best bullshitting job. No matter how wrong you were, as long as you can b.s. your way to justify why you were off, you still get to keep your job. You don't even have to get it remotely close. Its mainly a PR job to meet up with clients - much like the nightclub girls who will schmooze you and tell you all lies, but still many of clients like to be schmoozed that way. Good b.s. artists still get paid very well, just like good nightclub ladies (or gigolos) are also well paid for their services - hard to find the difference. We are all prostitutes in the end for the right price!!!

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…

Passengers - Go Watch It

Passengers. Brilliant story telling. Visionary yet believable. Like Martian, only better. Space travel, science, romantic, desolation, philosophical, mortality n its devastation, spectacular imagery. Being human n humane. 9.7/10
