Asset Class Returns As At 28 February 2014

February saw a lot of movement of funds. Looking at that month alone, there had been a large mobilisation of funds from those on the sidelines. Even commodities surged after a sombre 2013. This was the surge that could very well start the deluge of idle funds making them to go to work. Unfortunately the Ukraine situation kind of put a spanner into the works. The key now is to see if that is enough to derail the funds to flee completely and stay sidelined again. My view is that the incursions into Crimea and Ukraine by Russia will result in trade sanctions rather than an outright war by NATO/US against Russia. Obama will be loathed to send in any troops and certainly not against Russia. Once the sanctions are announced I believe some stability will be seen in the markets.

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
