With a wildly diverse repertoire and a cohesive body of beautiful songs, Pink Martini can take you from a samba parade in Rio de Janeiro at one moment, to a French music hall of the 30s or a palazzo in Napoli the next.

Rachel Guerzo presents an exquisite jazz experience infusing the elegance of the traditional with the dynamism of the new. Malay classics, bossa nova, swing and standards provide timeless music for an engaging and lyrical journey brought to life by an outstanding young artist.

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.

Alibaba is more for wholesalers and distributors.
Presto links retailers/f&b/services originators with en…
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:
