9 Year Old "Monet"

A nine-year-old art genius nicknamed 'Mini Monet' is about to become a millionaire after selling his latest collection of 24 paintings for £250,000.
Kieron Williamson, from Norfolk, had his landscape picturessnapped up by telephone and internet buyers from around the world in just 15 minutes during a recent sale.
The youngster only started painting during a family trip to Devon and Cornwall in 2008 - before then he had just coloured in dinosaurs his parents had drawn for him.
  • Only started painting lessons in 2008
  • Work bought by international collectors for tens of thousands of pounds
  • Paints three pictures a week
  • Proud mum has written book about his prodigal success
Nine-year-old Kieron Williamson's latest set of paintings sold within minutes fetching £250,000.

  The talented youngster beautifully captures a winter scene in 'Snow at Dusk.'
  This work, entitled 'Staithe Road Winter Shadows' sold for £17,495. 
 Another of Kieron's incredible paintings called 'Marsh Harrier Hunting.' 
Proud: Mrs Williamson has written a book detailing her son's astonishing rise to fame in the art world, called 'Kieron Williamson Coming to Light - The Remarkable Story of a Child's Gift to Painting'

 Looking to the future: The talented schoolboy will not be given free access to his rapidly growing wealth until he reaches 18, as his parents Michelle, 39 and Keith, 45, have been investing it on his behalf

 Career highlight: An exhibition of 33 of his oils, watercolours and pastels sold out within half an hour for £150,000 in July 2010 with buyers flying in from Arizona, New York and South Africa to snap them up

Going places: All of the money Kieron earns goes through his very own limited company, of which he is a shareholder

 Public: The works on display will include the 24 that he has just sold as well as the ten which are mostly being kept back for sale during the exhibition

 Journey: The retrospective exhibition will feature more than 100 of his paintings over the years to illustrate how his work has progressed
 Popular: Adrian Hill, the managing director of the Picturecraft gallery, said the decision had been made to sell the bulk of the paintings in advance to 'avoid chaos' when the exhibition opened

 Laid-back: Kieron kept his cool when he was asked if it meant anything to him to have earned nearly £1million. He just smiled and replied, 'Not really'

 Kieron added: 'I would like to go to other countries to paint and experience different lights. I want to explore Norfolk, Cornwall and Scotland a bit more' 
 Guided: 'We are a bit paranoid about how Kieron is viewed, said Mrs Williamson, 'that is important to us is that he remains balanced and relates to his peers'

 Changes: The family used to live in a rented flat next door to a petrol station in Holt.But with his earnings set to pass the £1 million mark his family have been able to move to a £150,000 home in the Norfolk Broads

  In demand: During ones sale fans even camped outside the gallery for up to 48 hours to make sure they did not miss out on one of his paintings while others telephoned in bids from Tokyo, Canada and Germany.

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…
