Constructive, Vindictive Or Destructive

I am all for constructive analysis and commentary. An open progressive society should always have that. However, is our society somehow more like the cartoon below ... always finding something negative to say, ... never considering the backdrop or context. It is easy to just criticise and complain, somehow by shading something darker, it makes our pitiful life bearable. In much the same way, we run the danger of branding ourselves by what we do not like, we have no problem telling others what we don't like. How do people describe you? Is it "oh, she doesn't like lamb dishes, she cannot stand Sungai Wang complex, she hates Justin Beiber,  ...." or is it "she loves dogs, she goes gaga for Baskin Robbins, she loves to climb hills ..."

Dali, your article reminds me of the number of rude and senseless commentaries I get from my recent piece on Jaya Tiasa. For example:
AmLiange said...
Mr Koon and Dali, pls go back to learn financial analysis 101!!! earnings drop drastically, who in the sane mind would be supporting this counter?! despite all the macro outlook of japan and growing plantation contribution, the fucking fundamental question remains that the earnings is still depleting!!! Pls go check the last quarter results before you make such comments.
AmLiange must check his own track record to see how much money he has made from his share investment and also how well he has performed in his work or business. His crude remark indicates that he is a frustrated failure and looking for a chance to let out his hot gas. For a start he must learn some manners before he can learn how to make money.
He is like an elephant who asked a camel ‘why your boobs are on your back?’ The camel said’ With your dick in front of your face, you dare to ask such a stupid question’.

I can only say that by and large, our view of others is molded by the prevailing norms in our society. For many of us, putting up with narrow mindedness, intolerance and inequality on a daily basis brings out our defensive attitudes in the form of cynicism and negativity. It's really hard to be otherwise.

Well said Mr Koon, I like the Elephant and Camel joke. It give me a good laugh.

I don't comment a lot but when I read AmLiange's comments quoted by Mr Koon Yew Jin, it's obvious the comments were malicious and intentionally so. Just ignore such comments. Such hard-hitting malicious comments indicate that Mr Koon Yew Jin could have made an excellent analysis and someone's not happy about it.

Good one Mr Koon.

Fret not Henri Leong, any major correction will present opportunities for value buy.
Quantitative easing cannot go on forever, and investors are now finally thinking about what will happen when the tide inevitably goes out.
Federal Reserve desired to taper its monthly bond-and-mortgage-buying program has triggered the markets into upheaval. The herd mentalities are driving equities and bond prices sharply lower. The sell-off may create a vicious cycle, as the leverage that multiplied investors' gains now works against them. Margin calls are proliferating and losses are compounding, as selling fuels more selling. Sound familiar….

Mr Koon, your joke has brighten my day. I'm still laughing while writing this. Pity the elephant. XD

Hi Mr Koon: I knew your name and accorded you with the highest respect since the hot topic of 30 mil for Hostel UTAR in Kampar. Since then, I were very happy each time reading your article thru Dali’s blog. Please continue posting your articles for younger generation to benefit from your prestigious life experiences, be it related to Bursa or community. I even hope that you can organize some sharing forum in Ipoh for the same good purpose. I am thousand mile behind you, and I humbly share my investment experience to beginner with hope that a lesson can be learnt from my stupid mistake. Thks

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



http://malaysiafinance.blogspot.my/2016/12/bank-negara-may-have-switched-on-bull.html


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…
