2 Cellos

Bought tickets to Elton John late as I had already seen him twice but that was some 15-20 years ago. As the date drew closer, I saw his photo performing in Singapore and naturally he has aged, and I said to myself, "do you think you will catch him live again over the next 10 years ... how old would he be then?"

For someone whose career spans over 30 years, the audience will be made up of different groupings. There are those who loved him from day one and would appreciate his Madman Across The Water and Levon, or even Honky Cat. Then there are those who got in in the 80s with his Sacrifice, and then the last ten years or so with the Lion King. Hence there will be gaps in appreciation in his concert.

Still, he gave an earnest performance and you cannot begrudge his brilliance as a songwriter with everlasting tunes such as Your Song, Rocket Man, Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word, Daniel, Candle In The Wind, Goodbye Yellow Brick Road, Crocodile Rock, Saturday Night's All Right ... so glad he did The Bitch Is Back (thought that was too risque). 

I can go one with songs he should have done: Island Girl, Don't Go Breaking My Heart, Empty Sky, and his brilliant instrumental Song For Guy ... but he could only do so much.

Anyway, he introduced the 2 Cellos as his opening act, and they were brilliant, have a listen.

KNM reported dismal results. You recommended shorting, if it was possible, when the share price was RM2.20 earlier this year.

Well done.

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
