Remembering Leslie Cheung



He is without doubt, and I am deliberately using the present tense, the most gifted and talented artiste we have in Asia. I came across these two TV shows on youtube and found them to be fascinating. One was done by a German TV station Arte, and I was very pleased to watch a fitting, correct and well researched tribute to Leslie. Thankfully it had English subtitles and is highly watchable and impartial. The fact that it was done by a group of people that does not even speak Cantonese or Mandarin says a lot about passion and professionalism of that group of people. The song the producers chose at the end of the documentary, an exceptionally beautiful and haunting Spanish song (I think about a bird..), was very apt as alluding to a bird that had no legs and would not land or could not land, and that the only time it landed was to die.

The second show was all the more interesting as it was the only interview done by Momo Mo Shun Kwan on her talk show. Many fans do not even know that Momo was about the only woman that Leslie openly declared his love to. They actually went out as a couple for an extended period. He even wanted to marry her, and he even admitted to having proposed to her. Unfortunately her feelings for him did not go as far his but they remained very close friends. Hence the interview carries a lot more weight and under current.

Dear Dali

I should not be raising this question in a space dedicated to Leslie Cheung, but could you give me a brief explanation on how the zero strike warrants on Berkshire Hathaway class B shares issued by AmBank works?

The warrants are listed on KLSE and in what ways can investors potentially benefit, from both the warrants and the underlying shares?

Sincerely
S. Radhakrishnan

hard to imagine that he chose to end his life judging from these videos (which I guess wasn't taken that long ago from that fateful day). He was looking very normal then wasn't he?

Is there any way , i can download the videos for my safekeeping?

It's painful and sad that he is no longer with us. The vids bring back poignant memories, reminding us of his lovable nature. Thank you for sharing.

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…
