Have You Been To GERAI, the Food Loft???

Love it when entrepreneurs take the well known and tries to do it better. Its tough to even consider trying a cafe concept serving all hawker top hits. You know very well that the hawkers do single dishes only and have years of experience to perfect them or have handed down recipes.

Despite all that hurdles, I must say that most of the dishes @ Gerai are much better than the stuff you get out there. Of course they are not here to be the #1 for every bloody hawker dish. Plus for the quality (usually 8/10 stuff) its very reasonable indeed, a lot cheaper than Madam Kwan. 

 I am there at least once if not twice a week as its very close to BFM office, so the bunch of hools are there often. I love their Hainanese Chicken rice (8.5/10), top notch, the Mamak mee (8/10) is refreshing, not as heavy as the ones you get outside and much much less MSG .... their daily tong suis are pretty good too.

Other hits include the Nasi lemak with a vg curry chicken (9/10). Laksa (7.5/10) and mee rebus (7/10) are solid too. Yang chow fried rice (8.5/10), pork noodle soup (8.10) ...

So, if you are near BU or Shah Alam ... pop by.

I would say some food are fine but not all.

Despite the good, there are some not-so positive comments too.

I encountered the fried tao-pok, the meat wasn't cooked. My colleagues shared the same experience twice. No apology at all, only commercial attitude that "we will replace next time you come".

The waiters not so friendly. During lunch rush hour, not so quick response.

You couldn't find anything except chicken & egg in their "red wine meesua". The noodles were oily.

However, a credit to the Pork Soup Noodle even though it is a bit salty. Too bad, they replaced the pig liver by the egg. Reason given was not so many people like pig liver. But, I thought "chu-yuk fun" should have pig liver?

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…
