Must Watch This - Little Big Master

Did not even plan to see this movie but there were a lot of dogs at the pet shop and had to drop my dog off for grooming, so got a couple of hours to kill. Always liked Miriam Yeung and Louis Koo but the synopsis indicated that it was a heartfelt small movie about 5 kids and a kindergarten about to be shut down. Wasn't expecting much but no choice ...

This movie simply was spectacularly written, tight and no nonsense. It was crafted so well that you felt for each character deeply by the time it got only halfway. But boy you do cry ... but those were somehow "good tears", they were tears of empathy, hope,

deep human kindness, all wrapped in a rare level of honesty not seen in most movies.

It has to be the most meaningful movie I have seen for a very very long time. Everyone from 6-106 should watch this. It brings out the best in us, it explores what we all need is to open up and lend a helping hand, and that everyone no matter how small, have their own story to tell.

Amazingly, the wonderful storyline was based closely on real life events. You will see pictures of all the "real people" with the actors playing them during the credits. The kindergarten is still on going today and its enrolment has risen from 5 to nearly 60.

Young ones will benefit enormously from watching the film as they will be asking questions which all parents will gladly answer as they all point towards the goodness in human kind.

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…
