2015 Christmas Day post




 As 2016 is nearing ... we are all reflecting on our 2015 ... what were those significant events or things we have done.

I am doing many things at a time, trying my juggling skills ... i do get distracted. So ... i do need to look thru the whole year and see which one i will want to focus in 2016.

FOCUS is what i needed.

My FOCUS will still be my trading-group ... making sure all profiting and learning what trading is about. Also ... FOCUS in my FCPO trades which i m doing consistent now.

That will be my MAIN FOCUS : My trading group and FCPO.

Grow from there ... I will definitely could be a better trader in 2016 as I m still improving.

FOCUS in living ... to be with my family more often as I have 'neglected' them for far too long ... so, i will be visiting more of those 'out of city' trip with family ... spending time to reflect on lives, in general.

Next FOCUS will be my tuition classes which I need to maintain. I will still be busy with my tuition-classes ... another part of my income. While planning for next center, i will have to check if i could cope with the many things going-on.

As for blogs ... i personally prefer here. This blog is my 'cyber home' where i write about my trading-adventures and many 'personal' events. As we all grow to be better person ... it will be good to have a 'diary' to record our days/weeks/months ... to define a year.

As much as I want to write about my 2015 year ... it will be loooong ... and i m needing to go out again to spend some time, cherishing the Christmas decorations!

Happy Holiday.

Get-away : 8 acres@Raub



http://eightacres.net/

I took a weekend off ... drove to Bentong-Raub on Friday and missed most of the 'Friday's show ... where FCPO rebounded!!

Anyway ... it is worth the drive ... a very nice get-away.



Matta Fair : We bought it cheaper during Matta-Fair ... but it is worth it, anyway.

We stayed here : http://eightacres.net/room/cascada/

http://eightacres.net/explore/photo-official/ ... check out the photo-gallery here ... nice.


This is one rare moment I m with my son ... enjoying. So ... after reflecting on the moments, I have decided to spend more 'get-away' time with my family. It is my new-year resolution. I just need to cancel a weekend(Sat/Sun) classes ... and be away from city. Making it a one-month once activity. Slowly ... I will invite some of our tratles(and family) to join in the fun ... have family-day outing plus book-sharing sessions at night!!

Will start to plan ... to have fun and enjoy more ... and reducing my work-work-work.

Live the life ... positively.

Have a nice Sunday.

Reflection ... in the making


Morning ... waking up like a zombie today as I have classes the whole day while trading FCPO (it dived 70 points!! That is over reaction and I hold one long overnight. We shall check later).

After a whole tiring day (plus heavy rain), I attended our last TM meeting of the year. I have been missing for my TM meeting (Tuesday night) as I have my trading e-learning for past 5 months.



TM : I have shifted my e-learning for next new batch (Jan - May 16) to Wednesday nights, to accommodate to my ToastMaster meeting. Frankly, being a simple-chin-chai person, I dislike many things about TM ... it is too structured, rigid and formal ... arghhh ... those politics, biro ... rigidness is very very boring, those so called "professionalism". Anyway, I hv decided to continue in 2016 as I like the learning to SPEAK and also knowing few good people there. Make it few ... please.

Yesterday's topic was REFLECTION.

12.50 am : I was writing the above ... then, distracted and running around ... took a nap due to too tired, waking up in mid-night ... watching DOW. It is forming a shooting-star at the moment.

I will need to change my schedules next year if I m serious about writing-a-book. Yeah ... it has been delayed for 3-4 years now. I still feel that I prefer to write a blog(this one) as I could write anything I like ... tho mostly in my mind is my trading, it is also about my plans in life.

I have tried many things for the past 10-years of my financial journey, changing my whole mindset ... to be where I m today(financially). I have also tried(and failed) many trading strategies, trading insturments/markets ... for the past 7 years since I started my trading adventures. I have met many traders or investors alike. I have attended courses and talks. So ... in a way, I have gathered knowledge and experiences.

At the moment, I m into trading futures. Actually, I started fkli/fcpo some 2-3 years ago with a group of trading kaki but many of us got burnt(I left the group as the leader no longer active) ... I was too naïve then. This year ... I am making a comeback to futures-trading and the first-half was a struggle as I m learning it by myself. Yes ... again, I m starting from ground-zero .... by myself, creating my own trading system. It is not the system ... it is the emotion that kills most of us. Anyway, I have a one full 2015-year ... focusing on futures-trading(mostly FCPO) and improving well now. In 2016, I will be more into it ... but in 2016 too, I will be getting busier!!

Busy ... busy ... busy.

I do need to pause ... and reflect on many things I m doing. I do need to prioritise and drop many things I m doing ... to focus. I m lacking of that as I have been juggling many things at a time. So .... I m taking a weekend off (to a dusun at Pahang) .... and hope I could draw out the whole plan on that.


I need to make time for what is important in lives ... and eliminate time-wasting activities. Also, I have continued to eliminate many-many negative people in my life ... and move on. Those supportive ones, I do appreciate their helps/support. It is always in my heart ... to appreciate kind humans around me. Those came and taught me lessons ... for me to grow to be a stronger person.

I was a weak person some years ago. I m still soft and sentimental inside. There are too many soft-spots in me ... and many 'bad-intention' people around taking advantage on that (for their self-centered benefits)

It is almost 1.30am ... time for a rest. I will have another long day with classes from 8.30am tmr.

p/s : Will you buy the book I am going to write? It will be on how I managed to get out of the E-quadrant(employee).

Night ...

A lazy Sunday ...

Morning ... Selangor won the Malaysia Cup (vs Kedah, 2 - 0). I used to go to Stadiums to support the team ... merah-kuning. Those were the days ... when Zainal still playing.

Anyway ... congrats to Selangor and we are having an off-day on Monday.

I went to BBW at The Mines, instead. Done my round 1 of buying books on Saturday but too heavy to carry ... and with two kids hanging around. So ... we went again for round 2 (books shopping) last night 9pm ... thinking at night might be lesser people ... arghh ....very wrong, it is Sat night where more people coming to check on the books-sales and today is the last day!!


These are my round-1 books ... making sure I do not buy those finances, business, management, self-help ... motivational books!! More "China" books and I will be travelling to YangTze ... yes, the great river.


YangTze ... my first visit to China will be to the river (not the wall) and the mountains. Perhaps the beach and seas ... something I noticed that I love more. The nature ...

Yeah ... I do love to indulge myself with these books ... it will be great if we could have few friends with similar interests ... to share those books over a coffee. I am creating that ... by starting with my book-sharing group --- click here to join  https://www.facebook.com/groups/906008679474837/

Till then ... I will still share some motivational/trading-investing/financial books I am reading thru online.

In future, I do hope I will have few good travelling-friends to be with me ... to climb Mt Kinabalu, diving at SiPadan ... to travelling to China(if I m rich enough, on me ... no issue).


Kindle : Finally ... after 3 - 4 years of wishing to have Kindle ... I was ill-afford one back then ... so, I told myself to 'delay gratification' ... wait till the technology improves and the price to drop. Last night, I decided to grab one as my own Christmas gift ... I seldom buy items for myself, anyway.

Oh yes ... before I forget ... today is the last day to The Mines. If you are there, try to do small-donation ...


It is meant for 60 hospitals. So, I bought some for the kids.



Shells : As I mentioned in the other post, I will 'show' the shells I collected so far. I lost a shoe-box full of another type of shells. Will need a 'home' for them. Now you know what I am collecting ... pssttt ... all I want for Christmas is .... hehe


Stamps : I cleared 8 stamp-albums and brought back my stamps, finally. Well ... it will take me some time ... to shop for nice stamp-albums. Yeah ... I will want to revive my interests in stamp-collecting. I have hundreds of FDC and will spend time on that. Again ... anyone to be my friend, and we talk about stamps or first-day-cover?

So ... my interests are collecting stamps and shells!! I do like reading books and listening to songs too, besides writing casually in the blog!! I m taking the challenge to write a book ... one day!! It has been 3 yrs now I procrastinated on writing a book. Haha ...

I do hope I will resume my 'bowling' and 'running'. The excuses of my knee-hurting been hanging on for too long.

e-learning : Ok ok .. I really need to start to promote my trading-lessons through online ... the e-learning!! It will be every WEDNESDAY 9pm to 10.30pm from Jan16 to May16. I need to put so many testimonials for my e-learning from those attended. Learning LIVE as the market is dynamic ... weekly basis of analyzing and Q&A is the only way those who really want to learn trading could learn. Contact me if you are interested to LEARN. We cant force a person to learn if he/she doesn't wants to.

Let's talk about money : SAVING


While I practice delayed gratification (live below our means), it is very important that we SAVE 10% of our income. I do spend another 10% to invest in MYSELF(joining groups, subscribe to magz, buying books, attending workshops and such).

So ... 'pay yourself first' concept is the initial step I took exactly 10 years ago!! My salary was about RM2,500 net ... so, I went to open an ASB account(loan from Maybank) and forced saving. I have been paying RM250 monthly for past 10 years ... without realising it. At initial stage, it was difficult as I was in huge-debt and very tight financially with my new-born boy.

During my last trip, I finally paid my last installment. As my income increases, 3 years ago ... I took another loan with Maybank (RM570 per month) ... another 'pay yourself first' concept. It forced me to SAVE.

As I was a financial IDIOT some years ago ... I have to force myself to SAVE. That is the only way for me to get ahead ... of my debt.

Note : The loan from Maybank is about 5.5% and ASB is paying me 7.5%, so the 'difference' of 2% is my profit, while forcing myself to SAVE. By the way, it is only for 'bumiputras'.


Now that my 1st-ASB saving expired, I am planning for a new ASB-II. They said I should take the 'maximum' amount of loan. Will check on that.

What else to blah-blah about? Hmm ...

yes ... new circle of friends!!


Yes ... old friends moving away from us ... for whatever reasons. There is always reason for everything? It is ok not to know ... but we need to continue to move as we need to set our goals ... enjoy the journey(leave those sour-grapes, bad people and those negative ones, for a start).

Will pause here ... and to continue with my YangTze book. Hehe.



Have a nice Sunday.

p/s : Don't worry ... we shall see more red-red in KLSE next week. Stay safe .... cut-loss if the key in trading.

KK Trip's blah-blah

Back home ... a place we called home is always a place to be. But ... when I m retired, I wish to make Sabah ... my home.


Tip of Borneo : It is worth it ... I drove up from KK for 3-4 hours and it is worth it. Actually, I have been Kudat many of times ... to buy those 'shells' for my collection (will show off some of my collections soon). Anyway .. for those never been to the Tip of Borneo, visit it ... the beach there is ... fantastic. My son said this is the best beach he loved ... second is Port-Dickson ... then only my usual Sepang's GoldCoast. Well ... kids don't lie ... but I do not like Port-Dickson. Will make a trip there again and stay there for few days!!

Kudat Pasar Ikan ... lucky to manage to catch these guys off-loading baskets of sotong-kurita ... and he is sporting enough to post for my shot. Haha ... and I joked with him "Kita kasi masuk facebook and blog". He just laughed.

wait ... I m watching crude-oil price plunging ... it went below USD38 last night .. and not USD36.70 ... so ... avoid O&G counters la.

wait ... I share the song I m listening now while blogging ...




ok ... where am I? My KK trip ...

ok ... talk about my charity-drive. From my trading group, I managed to collect a total of RM4k plus ... and used RM3.1k for items (blankets, towels, mandi-items ... rice, cooking oil, milo and such) ... for 30 poor kids in Pukak (Kiulu, Sabah).



I have to take two trips to send this Good Shepard Church(sister Sharon) and they will send the items to the home ... at Kiulu.


I have not complete my task ... I still have to get mattress for them but the sister needs to confirm with the 'home' as it is holiday time .. kids walked home to their kampong.


kakak 1


kakak 2

These two kakak work in the church .. and the kakak-1 knew the kids-hostel well ...

I will visit the kids personally next year when I m going in Apr-May for my Mt Kinabalu climb (contact me if you wish to join me!!).

Here .. I wish to thank many who have supported me emotionally for my cause. It is good cause .. they said. But ... I do things ... from heart. So ... it is for my own self-satisfaction. But, I sincerely thanked those contributed and ... for those encouraging me to keep up (I will).

wait ... I share another nice song(Indon)



On the 2nd day ... I drove to Kundasang, stayed there a night at Perkasa-Hotel. Visited the Desa@Kundasang ... nothing much and nowadays, it is very much commercialised. Wont visit Desa next time ... went to Tompohon Gate ... well, it re-opened the second day(limiting to 100 climbers per day now) after the earthquake.

I have climbed Mt Kina for 5 times ... up to the peak twice(gold cert) and Laban Rata 3 times (silver cert). By the way, I m not a cert collector ... so, I don't know if those cert still around. Haha ... I lost my Uni-degree cert too, fyi. Heck ... funny, human collecting certs not experiences.

It is 11pm now .. oil rebounds ... DOW down 190 points. Not much upside in KLCI but hoping it dives ... for us to go shopping.

Time to take a rest tho I wish to write more ... blah-blah more of stories.

Night ...

Post #3194 from Kudat

Morning ... it is 3am here in Kudat. So ... where is this small town?



This is a map of Sabah ... a very nice place to stay. Supposingly a rich state with oil&gas, logs ... tourism. But ... besides, Sarawak ... Sabah is another poor state, instead. Well, I m not going to talk about politics ... but one may search how poor many REAL bumiputras here are ...

So ... to help out the poor? We could easily find many poor villages ... they are everywhere!! Those Kadazan, Dusun ...  Runggus and many more suku-suku kaum.

I am going to the "Tip of Borneo" later ...

Ok ... these are my on-goings ...

Charity : I am glad I could contribute a little to the 30 poor kids who are staying in an hostel, managed by Good Shepard Church ... and will write about them, to create awareness on their states and also to encourage more good-kind people to donate. They are the REAL needies. So ... I am determined to be back to help them and more of those remote-rural villages.

Markets : As I am on the move, the only stock I traded for a week is RHBCap (bought RM5.70, sold RM5.99) ... and yes, still managed to achieve my RM200 per-day target from the futures(FKLI/FCPO) this week. More consistent now from the day-trade.

Liverpool : Klopp .... the new manager effect is great at the moment. They managed to beat Chelsea and Man City. And they beat Southampton 6 - 1 (away) for a place in the semi. Great ...

Tuition : Still having to teach ... and in fact, more classes to handle. For 2016, I do need to slow-down on my tuition classes(by learning to say 'no'?). I need to focus in my trading more as I am doing more consistent in FKLI/FCPO now ... but I do still love to teach MATHS. Well ... will be managing tuition-centers and planning to open another one next year ...

Trading-group : I do hope to maintain my good records ... and with added "Learning Corner" in order for my trading members to learn ... trading. Also ... I am trying to improve my tratles.net postings, e-meetings and contents.

Cohort-19 : I have just done a trading workshop for cohort-18(after 6 months of break?) a day before I flew in to KK. So ... I may plan for next workshop in Feb/Mac if there is a request.

Book-Sharing : I m joined a group " Roadmap to success" and discover that I could contribute ... by inspiring some of them who are keen to be successful. It is no secret ... hardwork, mindset and such ... but it is easier said than done kinda-stuff. We need constant motivation.

e-book-sharing : I have created my own group ... and to reach out to others, I m doing it thru online ... and enjoy sharing pages of some books I like ... I read and applying. It is open .... all are welcomed to join for free.

Biz : Venturing to invest in food-delivery service (Mobile-Waiter) as I m seeing the potential in these start-up. So ... I will be searching for another start-up to invest in. Perhaps JV with any entrepreneurs who have the idea to ... start? Anyone?? Contact me for a talk

WMT : This is Peter Yee's group where I am joining ... a lively group of successful people who shared similar wave-lengths on how we could use our MIND ... especially our NCM(non-conscious mind) to ... help us to achieve success.

Property : I am interested to learn more ... especially the auction-property-market. Might want to attend a course/workshop for that. Invest in myself is the best investment I knew of.

ToastMaster : I have adjusted my time ... for me to be able to attend the twice-a-month meeting. Yes ... time to get back to learn public-speaking and to get to know some of the members there. Those wish to join our MAD toastmaster group are welcomed. It is open to all.

Blogs : While I m supposed to write in tratles.net more often ... I m certainly still much comfortable with my BlogSpot. Hmm ... time to move away from comfort zone?

It is year-end ... I have to trim down on things I m doing or handling as I m too occupied, lacking in focus. I m nearing my 50 ... needing to slow-down to enjoy LIFE with family. My two kids needing my attention more ... and my wife been with me thru the years I was struggling ... some 10 years ago!!

Time to reflect on the things I m doing ... people I met, books I m reading. TIME management is never my strength and I have learnt to multi-task. I have many groups ... and I will be dropping some of the things mentioned above ... focusing in few things (for better results).

Hopefully ... I will be able to meet more nice successful people with similar frequencies. Oh yes ... I have ignored many of my critics ... and those talk-kosong people ... they are still talking and critising me, I guess.

Live our own lives ... to the fullest. Learn from each other ... share!!

It is almost 4.30am now ... time to go to check on the sunrise!!

Christmas Charity Drive



http://goodshepherd.my/asrama-desa-pukak

Asrama Desa Pukak (ADP) is a hostel for primary school children located in the village of Pukak, Kiulu, in the district of Tuaran in Sabah. This hostel was established in January 2008 and is located about 1 hour 30 minutes away from Kota Kinabalu and. It has the capacity to accommodate 30 children.

The main objective of this hostel is to enable these children, who come from remote rural villages surrounding Pukak, to attend school on a regular basis so as to raise their academic standards and complete their primary education successfully.

If not for the hostel, these children would have to walk two and a half hours or more over hilly terrain to get to SK Pukak everyday. School attendance would be dictated by the weather and the strength of each child. Access to these villages is only possible by four-wheel drive vehicles traveling on gravel or mud tracks and few in the village have such vehicles.

I am glad that I could contribute a little to this small hostel ... in a rural area ... Kiulu.

I will be getting them towels, blankets, pillows and mattresses. Yes ... I managed to collect about RM2.6k (not RM2.6bil) for them ... and anything not enough will come from me. Will need to check the conditions ... perhaps they need fans, bed ... or even writing desks or tables. I will get the furniture shop to send to them.

Will take pictures ... and create awareness in in many ... on how poor many rural-kampong REAL bumiputras are ... reaching out to them will not be easy.

It is Dec again ...Christmas Sales

Morning ... from Kota Kinabalu.

I m going to Papar ... might drive up to Beaufort later. Tenom-Keningau will be for tmr.

Doing nothing much ... except short trade in FKLI this morning to earn some points. It is the experiences that I m enjoying as I m still learning(very difficult leh) to trade futures.


RHBCap : Caught her nicely at RM5.70 ... when I was up there at Kundasang ... managed to go online!! Haha ... it closed RM5.78 on that day. I sold off part at RM5.99 yesterday ... and selling off today as I m moving.

RHBCap-OR done ... I was asking the group to watch RHB since the OR listed ... waiting for the day ... then as planned, when it rebounded ... grabbed on market price.

A short technical-rebound trade that done well. Still stuck inside Digi, tho. We shall see if yellow-man going to move ...

Anyway ... year-ending now ... we may see Christmas sales soon ... then, we go shopping, waiting for window-dressing. That is what I told my trading-members this morning. We keep cash ... for shopping.

I still remember I bought 10 penny-stock last year mid-dec when I was in KK. It was a Tuesday when I am suppose to drive up to Kundasang ... and bought WILLOW at bottom when I was up in the chalet there. Haha... great memory, tho. Yes ... I planned to buy 10 ... but bought 11 instead ... the last inclusion was SKPres ... one may check my 2014 mid-dec post ...

http://cpteh.blogspot.my/2014/12/klci-rebounded-finally.html

Preparing my 10 penny-stock list .... in case it dives as sharp as last Dec.

Have a nice week.

Sabah : Where my heart is


It is kinda cold here now ... 5.30pm ... Kundasang, near Kinabalu National Park.

KLCI up 10points ... I m on holiday and could not watch or trade. So ... it is kinda 'weird' as I m so used to be monitoring markets ... well, I think I do need the break.

Yeah ... I m slowing my pace ... and letting go of many un-real things in my life. In 2016, I will like to see minimal items ... will like to know more good human and learn the living-skills of living life to the fullest.

I know I m not financially rich(yet) ... but I will want to focus in few things and use my strength ... needing positive encouraging people to push me ... to move but at my own pace. Many things need to be done ... but I should not be too concern.

What I will want to do is ... be with my two kids. Yes ... time to spend more time playing with them and letting them to explore what they really like doing. My joy will be seeing them developing into healthy good-mannered kids. I will want to teach them to appreciate LIVE ... being thankful for all the beautiful things they could enjoy ...

Sabah ... this is the place I will want to retire. Yes ... it is still in my heart. I like the simple living of many Kadazan people here. They do have new huge shopping malls but I m always the jungle-person. I like trees ... rivers ... waterfalls ...jungles ... beach ... sea ... island. Yeah ... those are places I would like to be ...

---flower ----

2016 is nearing ... I m slowly becoming more REAL ... by eliminating many of those negative people and also negative elements.

2016 ... I m determined to make it another better year ... for my family and myself.

It is very difficult if we have negative people around us .... they will suck our energy. They will be always complaining and expecting the world to provide them. These are people who will only criticise us .... or others. Once we recognise these characters, we have to move ourselves away from them. It is wiser ... and this is something I have learnt ... and still learning. Saying NO to these people protected our mind ... our time ... our energy ... and yes, our lives.

Where my heart is?

It is not in Sabah ... it is in my family, my young kids.

So ... I m determined to eliminate these people, once and for all.

Time to get back to enjoy my dinner ... in natural cool place here.

Have a nice week ahead. We all should encourage each other to face lives ... POSITIVELY.

How to trade a HAMMER


Just home ... it was raining ... and since I am alone at home, I will have a session of e-meeting ... for educational purposes.



I am choosing a topic "HAMMER" ... and how we trade if we see a hammer.

click here to join : https://global.gotomeeting.com/join/982319381

Fees : Any amount ... donation for my coming Christmas Charity Drive. I will have another session ... in case some giving excuses of last minute ... not free.

TEH


Slowing my pace ...



Welcome little kitty ... haha. As I heard the cries ... abandoned in front of Maybank ... no one bother. I picked her up ... hungry, fear ... and injured.

So, I feed her ... today is day-5 ... and time to name the kitten!! I am glad as it brings me simple happiness ... as I do find simple joy in my life ... while my surrounding people looking for LARGER items ... I looked in my heart. How do I make myself happy?

To be happy to me is to find peace .... finding something close to my heart, most of them ... my dollar-cents could not buy me that.

No one taught us about HAPPINESS ... all we read are robbing ... corruption ... war ... rape ... dramas ... MEDIA showing us the negative part of lives and expecting us to stay positive. They are doing BIZ ... and needs to cater for the majority public ... who ....well, 80% of non-successful people around.

Anyway ... how to be happy?

Look inside us ... take a PAUSE. Breathe. Feel. Reflect.

I am not your happiness-guru ... I am just a Math-teacher, like everyone else ... searching for meaning of lives and wanting to be happy too. But ... HAPPINESS cant be found OUTSIDE. That is definite ... we cant be happy simply because my Eatech rebounded strongly for me to profit? Can we find happiness in changing our car or mobile-phone? Err ....

Those are temporarily ... feeding to our GREED, and with GREED of materials(MONEY), one could not find lasting happiness. The next thing one might think is to CHANGE a new car next month!! Haha ... yes, they wonder why they are not happy?

Another subject we are never taught well is MONEY ... our personal finances. Somehow, we all work-work-work for MONEY ... yet, many denying that money is important. Inside them, they are STRESS on money ... and HOPING to earn more and .... some even dream to be rich!!

Good to have dream ... place the goals in smaller pieces and take action!! MOST will just talk-talk-talk ... and complaining about their salary, bonuses, increments ....and continue to COMPLAIN. How are they going to be happy ... if all they do is hope, wish ... day-dreaming?

I am easily content person ... those knew me in person will recognise that. Simple. But I have huge goal ... and dare to dream.

My wife and kids flew off to KK .. and I m home alone. Time to reflect on many things ... the going-on ... and preparing for 2016. I certainly slowing down my pace ... and looking into LIFE in brighter simpler way ... of living.

2.50pm : Done with lunch ... banana-leaf. Waiting for FCPO re-open at 3pm. SOY is surging but FCPO is down ... weird ... I longed FCPO yesterday and now in paper-loss.

Ok ... FCPO gap up ... surging. Good. Let it be ... where am I in today's lazy post?



Eatech : I sold Hevea 1.52 for her ... to buy at 1.17 and top up 1.24. Yesterday, I sold her at 1.31. Bye-bye .... earning report is out, fyi. It closed at 1.34 and I asked my members to sell at resistance RM1.38.

Waterfalls : There are so many of them ... yesterday SIGN dived ... today is Johotin. Many more la ... earning season now ... no good reports, it will be pressed down and selling. Last night, during my e-learning ... I shown the group WHY SIGN showing bearish signals ... and we should have sold her last week before the gap-down.

Cohort-18 : Yes .... learn about these basic technical charting to make decisions. Going to have my cohort-18(my trading workshop) this Saturday from 9pm to 6pm. Normally I made it two-day event (sat&sun) but there is a request by those participants to make it in a day ... and then, continue with my stock-watch to learn from me.

contact me if you wish to join my simple trading-workshop. sms/watsapp at 012-8210129

Ok ... I am going to play with the kitten ... listening to "Opick" ... while having my 'Heskey' drink.




Have a nice day ...

Monday blah-blah


Morning ... it is Monday rush again ... but not so rush as it is school-holiday. As for me, Monday morning I do have classes ... and I m done for the day.

I had a good book-sharing session last night ... talking about how I have changed my view on MONEY some 10yrs ago ... and was continuing to improve myself, financially.

So ... I shared a good book by Azizi Ali (Money is everything) ... well, just 30 attended(almost all are from my own trading group).

Well ... this blog of mine started Aug 2008, I have about 30 readers back then.

When I started my trading-group .. I also have about 30 members only.

So ... last week when I shared a book by Adam Khoo (Winning in life) ... I also have about 30 came for my talk. It is free ... but not many interested to spend their time to listen to me blah-blah bout my stories.

Someone told me ... it is inspiration ... and thanking me to share with him. Also, another said I have managed to open up his mind .... yes, I want to make it mind-provoking!! Haha.

Anyway ... I will continue to have more-n-more sessions of book-sharing (rather than blogging here)!!

Planning on Wednesday night another book-sharing ... this time I will have 2-in-1 : Adam Khoo plus Azizi Ali. Both are financial guru ... and I learnt a lot by reading their books.

READ some good financial books if one is to learn how to be financially free.

READing is not good enough.

Take time to APPLY ... as only applied knowledge is power. Knowledge without action is just information overload, to me.


FGV : As I have sold at 1.99 ... last Friday, I bought back(thru FGV-c7) when FGV breaking 1.83 level ... so, many in my trading group followed. At the moment, FGV at 1.87 level ... and FGV-c7 at 15cents. I m selling as I grabbed at 13-13.5cents.

It is 10.20am ... waiting for opening of FCPO. It is very difficult to trade futures ... especially FKLI as it is manipulated ... FCPO more liquid ... and easier to be used for day-trading.

11.01 am ... take profit my long FCPO closing last Friday at opening 2309 today for 16points. Very difficult to trade now as it is gapping up-down and very tight range.

Time to go home ... to play with my kids.

Klopp the Normal One

Morning ... brilliant play by Liverpool. Is it Klopp's magic going on?


It begins on 17h Oct when ... Klopp's first game as Liverpool's manager ... playing against Spurs, away. They drew 0 - 0.

Here are the previous scores

#1 : Spurs (A) : 0 - 0

#2 : FK Rubin (H) : 1 - 1

#3 : Southampton (H) : 1 - 1

#4 : Bournemouth (H) : 1 - 0

#5 : Chelsea (A) : 1 - 3

#6 : FK Rubin (A) : 0 - 1

#7 : Crystal Palace (H) : 1 - 2 

This is Klopp's first loss as a manager.

Then ... they played Man City away ... and won! Great ... but, we shall check on consistency.




I do like the two brilliant Brazilians in current Liverpool's team ... last year, it is such a pleasure to watch the team playing ... with Suarez, Sterling and Sturridge tormenting other team's defence.

Yeah ... Mario was such a flop. I m not sure about Benteke ... as he is kinda lost at the moment.

Liverpool still have a very young player in Ibe ... like this young man and just hope he will grow with Liverpool ... instead of running away for greater money(that Sterling in mind). Ibe could replace Sterling ...

With Sturridge coming out from injuries ... he will play well with the two Brazialians. Benteke may give them the height they needed ...'

Nevertheless ... I am very glad they made the change of the manager as BR doesnt seem to get anywhere without the 3-S ...

The defense is still a worry. I think Klopp will be able to strengthen this area ... hopefully.

Have a nice Sunday .... and join me in my book-sharing tonight.

22nd Nov : Book-Sharing


Morning ... supposed to attend a talk but i have classes, instead.

It is Saturday ... holiday time. My wife & kids will be flying off to KK for 2-3 weeks ... while i will join next weekend.

Cohort-18 : Next Saturday, I will be conducting a trading-workshop (cohort-18) to few of my new-found friends. Those who wish to join, do contact me (012 821 0129) and I will add you in the watsapp group.

go to www.tratles.net where I posted about selling Hevea (sold at RM1.52) and changed to Eatech (bought at RM1.17) on Thur ... a good decision, indeed.


Hevea : That is bearish-engulfing candlestick ...might want to consider if back to 1.38 level again ... i sold as good-reports out, gapped-up ... with huge volumes. Herd-retailers will chase ... it is just their nature. So ... sell to them!!

Someone watsapp me to ask if he could buy Hevea-wb when it gapped up ...as usual, i do not answer as it is 'trade at your own risk'. I always prefer not to chase. There are many mmore to trade ... why rushing?


Eatech : Grabbed at average 1.17 when i saw hammer is forming. Added yesterday at 1.24 ... again, u may join me in my trading-group to know how i traded "hammer" here.

I do have losing trades, of coz ... such as cut-loss small in Armada (then it shot up) and Parkson.

Lets talk about my book-sharing (tmr night). Click on the link tmr night around 8.50pm.

https://global.gotomeeting.com/join/682026853

I will like to share a very good book by one of my fav author, Azizi Ali. I read his books since the "Millionaire in me".  Join my book-sharing group if you wish.

https://www.facebook.com/groups/906008679474837/



Chapter 6 : Educate yourself in money matters

What a good topic ... as I have been educating myself about money matters for past 10yrs, a total change in my financial mindset as i knew that is the MOST important step.

Buy this book ... it is VERY good. Do not pretend. Take action and face facts.

Learn to invest in stock-markets, learn to invest in properties ... learn to save and save. Learn
about biz and networking. Learn about how we could earn more money ... and create streams of income. Learn ... mix with those motivated (not money-minded, scams or those suckers) people to excel ... in lives.

That is how i grow ... ad teaching myself about MONEY.

Oh yeah ... the book-sharing is free ... FREE? Where got such thing, you MIND playing up there as you are narrowed minded ... and think everyone want to con your money!! See?

Cheap is not good ... see your mind playing MONEY with you?

Till I share tmr night ... have a nice weekend.

Being an author ...

Morning ... DOW rebounded sharply. Forget about market for a while ... as I m relaxing outside an air-cond Uncle Lim's kopi-tiam ... having my breakfast.

Today ... in mood sikit to write.

http://bissmethesun.blogspot.my/2015/11/nor-azida-ishak.html?zx=52749da72b070078

I knew this author in person ... a very nice lady (she used to give me free executive-management dairy) ... and wanting to interview her!! Haha ... I want to ask how she becoming an author and learn from her ... so, I will write about my journey becoming an author ... one day.

See ... I m a blogger, not an author. I blog REAL time ... real thoughts from my mind. I m writing from my heart ... a passion to blog. So ... to write a book is a STRESSFUL kinda job. I dislike the conformity, the rules-regulations ... I prefer suka-suka without restrictions ... I like rojak way of writing ... and dislike those liking to read boring strict so-called good Ingeris.

Yes ... I like to ask the author out for a drink and speak to them ... how they became an author. I do take extra steps to get to know them ...but most authors are writing about FINANCIAL as those occupying my book-racks.



8.47 am : FKLI shorted 1660 done as I m writing here. Later only we check ... take profit/cut-loss.

I did have a chance to co-author a book with my ex-colleague(Taylor's lecturer) as he went into writing books (to carry his name ... to give financial-workshops and such). Oopss ... probably he is writing this lines too. Heck. Congrats to him as he is young and I do like to encourage him to achieve his financial goals. I bought 10copies of his books and distribute to those want to read.

I admire this young colleague of mind ... he has his financial-mindset right ... and there are VERY few of them ... in teaching line have these financial-freedom goal. Congrats again, George ... if u r reading my writing today. Haha.



9.10 am : FKLI covered 1655 done ... for my 5-points profit for today. Thanks to DOW up 200plus points la.

FKLI : Trading FKLI is my main weakness and lost me a lot of money so far. But, one day ... I will be back to trade FKLI. At the moment, my focus is FCPO (10.30am) ...

Where am I?

Writing a book ... yes ... I might want to join Azizi-Ali in writing a book workshop as he has trained many new authors ... in fact, these are so-so many new books published in monthly basis ... and the qualities of books ... zzz ... u know, when we increase the quantity ... the quality zzzz. hehe.

I met Andrew-Chia ... a bubbly happy-go-lucky person. I like his books(I have full set, I think) ... including his public-speaking book!! He is a well-known author about Money-Secret, Stock-Investment and such. I got him to autograph all the books personally ... when I met with him.

Also ... Peter Yee ... an author of property and with his latest book on WMT. So, I joined his group and glad I m learning about MIND from the known-guru. I like his Money-Skill book the best of all his books.

Alan Tan ... a blogger and an author about "Earning money thru blogging" and "Stock Market --- he interviewed me and have me there!! What an honour!!". He attended to my trading workshop and then got to know me, a real stock-trader!!

Oh yes ... recently I joined MPH Writer-Circles and met Lydia-Teh(not my sister la) ... she was encouraging young-new bugging writers who may want to write a book!! After the talk, I want to give-up writing a book ... er ... they earn 10% of the sales and also most books will NOT BE BEST SELLERS. So ... many new-upcoming authors saying that ... it is NOT for the money?

Huh? Then ... write a blog, like me ... no need control, no need to publish ...in hardcopy(save the tree, please)

MYEG : Breakout of RM3.45 as I m writing here ... 10am now. Missed to grab ... arghhh ...

Ok ... time to prepare for my FCPO opening.

Will I be an author .... one day? Yes, if they could allow me to write whatever heck in my head, whatever way I like. But .... am I supposed to write what the READERS like? zzz ... I wont la ... I don't care about majority as most of them wont like to read my writings. I talk about REAL struggle ... real human, doing real work .... to move out of EMPLOYMENT (left my full-time teaching last year after 20 yrs teaching in college!!) ... I am talking about hard-failing-painful work on learning to trade ... and REAL traders with emotion control(not trading with robots ... whatever software etc) ... I m talking about REAL life ... getting out of debt .... and increase my financial knowledge in SLOW manner ... planning on expansion of my investment in biz ...

.... failing ...

.... falling ...

being condemned to fail .... criticise by many ...

I prefer to blog here ... talking about REAL LIFE.

Wake up to the reality ... something I enjoy the most. I will not like those get-rich-scheme telling you that we don't need to work hard but work smart ... then showing you their big-car or house to impress you (GREED in play). I prefer to tell all that I m riding second-hand kap-chai and my 5-yr old Proton. If you have followed my blog, you will even know that I was driving a Kancil in KK ... moving to KL here to work hard ... and able to buy a Proton 5 yrs ago with my RM4k salary !!

I like REAL stories la ... so, can I write about HOW I GET OUT OF MY IDIOTIC FINANCIAL BRAIN?

That is a good book title ... can I use vulgar-words are ... WTF with these world la? Stupid or what?

By the way, a book with title WTF (property book) selling like hot-cake!!

So ... How about the title " WTF with our stupid-idiotic financial brain?" Good title ... as that was the harsh words I told myself ... some 10years ago, when I was at my lowest point in my financial-life.

Can or not? Faster la ... tell me ... can scold bad-harsh words to the stupid majority or not? Those empty-tins ... talk-talk like they are best in trading stocks/financial markets ... those talk and do nothing, having pitiful lives? Those idiotic salesman telling me his system could profit 10% per MONTH ... yet he still working at night, selling his software?

Can tell truth in my book meh? Got people buy to read? Come on la ... majority public are followers, HERD MENTALITY and living in illusion .... zzz ....

So ... from the above, conclusion ... I could never be an author. No one will want to publish my writing/book. I cant tell truth ... I cant expose many bull-shit about trading, financial, real lives ... so, I cant write naturally. That will give me ... emmm .. difficulties in the flow-of-words. Haha.

10.20am liao ... time to focus ... back to market.

Have a nice day ... stay real la, it is easier and happier that way. Just do our best ... and help others too.



This Sunday night I will share a book ... yes, the book I like to share "Money changes everything" by Azizi Ali.

Hevea : Selling my Hevea today ... saying TQ.

Trader's Mindset


Noon ... I shared with my e-learning group (2H2015 - cohort3) about mindset. Next week will be the last series of the class.

This month, I m sharing about MINDSET as it is the most important of the 3Ms - Methods, Management and Mindset.

Here ... I am sharing what I shared with my e-learning group last night.

#1 : Trading is not easy : Do not listen to media, broker-houses, forums ... who are promoting 'trading'. Invest in good companies ... and ride on the uptrend. Whoever said trading is easy ... either they are selling us 'something' such as software packages or their trading courses ... or they want us to trade frequently to earn commission.

#2 : cant recall ... will write later

#3 : Stay focus : Do not use too many indicators or looking into too many reports. Checking on media will drown us with information too. So ... focus in few stocks to trade well (such as Myeg, AirAsia and such). Do it consistently and focus in our own trading system, trading plan and work on it.

#4 : Take is as a biz : Seriously ... stocks are biz-entities. We are not buying empty papers ... we are buying into the biz ... also, be serious in our trades. LEARN ... plan and execute. It will take us 3-5 years to understand trading .... just as when we venture into biz ... it takes TIME to learn and face challenges.

#5 : Growth Mindset : Always remember that there are many things we do not know as we are new in trading stocks. Learn ... learn and learn.



Myeg : A short one-day trade ... grabbed RM3.24 and RM3.30 during closing ... sold yesterday at RM3.36 and RM3.42 ... as 3.45 is the resistance. Many of my trading-members sold above RM3.40. Good short trade. To me, RM3.45 resistance is a sell ... wait for breakout only buy.

Sold Esceram and AirAsia yesterday for small profits.

But the good one is Hevea today ... as I was asking members to buy/collect around 1.35 level before the report out. Good report ... I sold partial at 1.41 ... now at 1.48, I will hold or add.

I am promoting my e-learning group (Jan 2016) as my current e-learning batch  is 'graduating' ... soon.

I have created a facebook e-learning group just now as I have few enquiries. Please add me in.

Book Sharing : Financial Freedom

Morning ... this topic was discussed last night(briefly and I made it VERY long! haha) in my BS-group (BS = book-sharing ... in case you think of something else) thru watsapp ... no, that is not my group ... I was added there as I joined on of the book-sharing session.

https://www.facebook.com/groups/906008679474837/

Book-sharing group : I have created a book-sharing facebook group(free, of coz) for those who wish to join in my book-sharing (books that I read such as self-help, motivational, biz-related, investment ... life, in general) sessions. Currently, I m doing it online ... will start to record it and upload to youtube next year .... so, I have 1.5months left to try-it-out. Haha ... the crowd is still small but I will continue to do what I like to do ... sharing the books I read.

Anyway, it is about financial freedom ... a word that is too HUGE for most of us. It was near impossible for a lowly paid lecturer(RM3k plus) some 10 years ago ... when I got married and got myself into huge debt. Looking back ... I would never want to be poor n in debt anymore. Hey, who want to be poor? Yes ... it is poor MINDSET ... financial mindset and attitudes towards money.


So ... when they said "who doesn't want financial freedom?" in the chatbox ... that triggered me to answer ... MOST of us around (that is some 80% of population) DO NOT want financial-freedom. FACE THAT FACT ... most of people I got to know some 10years ago when I was struggling financial ... most(if not all) of them are not free --- financially --- as they are lecturers in colleges!!

Yes ... the people around us ... making us ONE OF THEM .... and when I was reading RDPD book at that time ... I started to THINK of WHY am I in huge debt, why am I financially poor after working for 20 years ... why am I stress with all the debt and how am I going to feed my young family?? It is scary ... financially.

So ... my financial brain-cell started to work some 10 years ago ... I was 38 yrs old, financially-poor lecturer, earning less than RM5k with huge financial-debt, obligations and zero saving! Incredibly a financial-idiot ... and to think of financial freedom? What the ... it is almost impossible, right?

They said ... dream-big!! Yeah right ... dream is just the first step ... set goals and achieving it is another. Without dream ... we all could not rely on HOPE. But ... that wont lead us to financial freedom, right?

What I did? Too lengthy to speak about ... that is why I have book-sharing sessions ... that day I shared about WORK and only about 20 turn-up for my interesting session. This Sunday I am going to have another book sharing session!! Haha.

Go to here : https://www.facebook.com/groups/906008679474837/

So ... this Sunday night I will plan a book-sharing to talk about FINANCIAL FREEDOM. I don't know what book I m going to share yet ... will check my library(I have been collecting books!! haha).

Besides reading books to increase my knowledge, awareness about money and changing my financial-mindset ... I slowly leaving most of my colleagues, my friends ... those always complaining about money-not-enough circle. I have to protect my MINDSET that I m developing ... and change my bad money-habits. I am a total changed person (financial mindset) than I was merely 6 yrs ago ... when I came back to KL for interview.

Looking back ... I will not want to be where I was, financially. SERIOUS!!

So ... it is BOOKS to change my mindset ... then, people surround me. I avoid those toxic-human ... who will suck your energy, complaining about their lives ... I left my bowling-game and those friends there (most of them are financially not well). I started to learn trading-investing ... I learn about biz-entrepreneurship and such ... I got around people with similar mindset, viewing lives POSITIVELY to move forward ... and help each other to grow.

Yes ... grow in our financial-mindset will set us nearly to our financial goal ... that is to be financially FREE.

Who doesn't want to be financially free? They asked. I will answer again ... MOST OF PEOPLE around DO NOT want to be financially free!! They want to have security JOB ... carrying out their tasks and work hard. They do not want RISK ... they do not want to work hard of SKILLS that could give them he financial freedom. They do not want it strong enough ... that it is NEAR impossible for them to achieve financial freedom.

Today ... I got mood sikit to blog after the BS-group talked about FINANCIAL FREEDOM ... a topic I do like to talk about ... debate about, learn about ... and more importantly, taking ACTIONS to reach that goal of mine ...

I want to be financially free ... so that I could do things I want to do, anytime and anywhere!! Get it?

Who doesn't want that?

MOST OF those around us!! Can face the reality(check sikit) ... most of us LIE to ourselves?

In 2016 ... as I m trying to motivate myself to reach nearer to my goals(financially) ... I have plenty of things in mind ...

It takes a lot of WORK ... and we need to be PASSIONATE ... to make it work.

Join my talk ... and I will share with what I have done right ... and most important part to share, where I have failed, done wrongly ... and move on.

See u this Sunday night ... online.

Internet Marketing ... ?

Morning ... as KLSE is boringly moving lower with nothing much to buy yet(except I started to buy Digi la ... I will follow you).

http://new.digi.com.my/Page/landing/default/home


Or if you prefer the song ... here the best version.





Ok ... enough of Digi .. what am I supposed to blog about? It is almost lunch hour ... kinda hungry.

Yes yes .. IM = Internet Marketing.

Recently, someone created an IM (learning and sharing) group ...thru watsapp ... and it is called watsapp-marketing? Heck ... whatever terms they are using. Haha.

Anyway ... I have been dormant in the group, never read those messages(hundreds in a day!! haha) till last night .. Sunday night .. out whole day, kids tired and slept early.

So ... I was curious what the box chatting about ... with few hundreds messages in a day??

Then .. got to know 2 very experienced in IM ... and they attended some IM courses too, and conducting IM-course for beginners too!! Great to know these IM people ... as I need to promote myself, change my mindset. I m into biz-leh ... must do packaging(look at the moon-cake packaging! haha)

So .. they said : Blogging is part of IM??

What?? How come I have been blogging for past 18 years ... about my bowling, my ex-gfs ... my songs, my college life ... and more ... I got nothing? I never bother to check on what I could do further with blogging .... except I blog due to needs to express ... and throw my emotion to the huge cyber-space. haha

How naïve I was ... and never bother to gain some $$$ from the ad ... putting google-adsense. I do not even know how to log-in, forgotten the password etc etc. Maybe  ... I need to re-activate my google-adsense. I used to earn some RM100 per month leh. Now .... zero!!

So ... knowing those IM-expert will be good too. Need to treat them coffee ... and hope they could guide me to improve in my IM ... but not the way I write blog, please.

One of them suggested that I planned my posts!! Arghh ... near impossible as I m a BLOGGER leh

Don't know how to explain ... those who write blogs with motives or planned are WORKING ... and wont last leh ... they lack of PASSION. They are motivated with personal-agenda ... not like crazy me, blog for passion ... daily for hours ... for years!! Haha ...

I didn't blog here in daily ... I know, no longer after I lost the momentum some 2-3 yrs back. After I created www.tratles.net ... and was hoping to use that site ... but .... but .. I really really comfortable and prefer here ... heart is where home is, they said.

So ... to learn IM without wanting to listen to 'sifus' ... how to be successful la? I don't know ... I hope to engage them to help me, but I m the stubborn one!! I am a teacher ... hard to do marketing. Haha.

Well ... as I m using Facebook a lot too ... social-media is a tool for IM? What?? Why these people all think of is money ar? Cannot play FB for fun meh? Or blog for sharing ... for pleasure reading?

Ok ok ... I bought a few IM books .. haha ... might start to read one-two pages. Those are very boring books ... unlike my self-help or trading books. Perhaps my passion is not in marketing at all ... so, I do wonder how those marketers enjoy their jobs!!

Ok ... time for lunch .... marketing or not. Join my trading group. Using blog, is it called IM? haha

Morning ... It is Sunday, still a hazy day. Schools in Sgor have been closed for whole week and only re-opened last Friday. Still ... it is hazy, with API reaching above 150.

Ok ... just wrote about MahSing as I visited the kiosk yesterday. Click the above link.




DOW has been bullish ... up another 157 points. So ... with budget being tabled, will we be seeing more of post-budget rally for next this coming week?

China cut the rates AGAIN ... stimulus possible by ECB ... pushing the markets higher and rebounded sharply. KLCI hit 1500 level and rebounded 200 plus points at the moment. Staying about 1700 ... good. Will we be seeing 1740, the resistance next? We shall watch ...

Ok ... I will want to write about an equation : INCOME = VALUE x TIME

Analyse our TIME ... how do we spend our time everyday? Take out a piece of paper ... list those activities we frequently spending time on.

Example : Traffic jam ... or waiting for something, the "idle-time". Is it avoidable ... or reducible? Efficiency and effectiveness.

After reading the topic(book by Adam Khoo) ... I feel like sharing it with others.

So ... I m inviting all to my e-meeting tonight 9pm to 10.30pm (haha ... got excited while reading and writing about it) ... share will all those interested la.



Book-sharing thru e-meeting(online)

I m just excited to share ... what I am reading.

Time to have a nice Sunday ahead.

Budget Day


Noon ... it is 11am ... thought I m a blogger and suppose to blog? haha ...

Ok ok ... DOW up 320points. BULLISH.

So, KLCI up up ... resistance at 1720 now ... while waiting for the budget-day to be over. What is in store for us, rakyat? hmm ... Berkins bags?


I m doing nothing ... bought back Harta and Esceram as they breakout of the resistance. So ... wait for selling. Meanwhile ... I have this magz on my table for a week now .... finally could slow down to read a little.

These are the magz I have been feeding my mind ... since 2008. Yes ... I was very broke back then ... a RM5.50(The Edge in Sabah) is very costly for me ... but I spent the money ... investing in my MIND.

Market so bull this morning ... due to DOW up 300points. What should we do? Short FKLI opening! That was the best opportunity, in my opinion. Then ... it corrects ... and take profit. Off u go ... easier said than done, right?

But ... we increase our knowledge. EXPAND our horizon ... see things larger ... and initially, it will be very hard and we will lose a lot, battered and bruised. Can you survive such?

Then ... we go thru the cycles ... for experiences. Yes, experiences ... of market UP and DOWN due to the fear-greed in human.

How about HKSE? or going to US-market? We all should venture into new territories ... trade different instruments.

Time to go to fetch my girl ... lunch and rest.

Have a nice weekend (see if I could blog tmr).

Back to blogging?

Morning ... Monday ... school closed due to haze again. So, my two kids at home ... and I want to stay home today, to be with me. I had hectic weekend.

Last week ... during e-meeting, I m stating that KLCI is going into overbought position ... so, I cleared most of my holdings ... but today, most going up higher!! I am not chasing as I dislike crazy-buying situation and those hot-stocks during hot-market. Yes ... I m practising contrarian-mindset in my trading ... going against the trend!!


This is KLCI daily chart. Discuss.

Ok ... as my blogging mood is slightly back, I better get back the momentum. Hehe.



Friday night : Joined a book-sharing by a young man. Great sharing about John Maxwell's book titled "Your Road Map to Success". This is my third session with this group ... 1st was months ago when a lady shared about "retired by 40" ... then, I gave the second book-sharing session from the book "8 to be great". The forth ... will be end of this month, given by a fb friend of mine!! He came for my book-sharing session last month and agreed to share with us a book!! What a sport. By the way, he is a Malay ... the only Malay joining us so far ... err ... he is my friend, so ... I m colour-blind leh.

Saturday : Tuition classes as usual ... 8.30am to 12pm. Then ... home. My boy's chess class 5pm. Dinner ... and watch Kloop's first game ... 0 - 0. zzzz.

Sunday Morning : Charity Day

7.30am ... travelled with few of my tratle-members who are helping me. Went for dim-sum at Bt3 Jalan Ipoh ... then to Tesco Selayang. Well ... I joined 1M1C (1 month 1 charity) group for the first time ... as I m lazy (busy is an excuse?) to organise!! Haha ...

9.30am : Joined the other volunteers to buy 90pax of rice ... it is done easily due to many helping hands. Great teamwork by the experienced organiser, Chow



In few days, after putting up my intention to donate 90pax of 10kg rice, some members generously donated to my cause ... and managed to collect RM1,300!! Malaysians are generous .... and I appreciate the kind gesture. It made my day ...



Malaysian spirit : Candidly, someone took this picture of me ... and I like to share it here as I see Malay, Chinese and Indian ... yes, MALAYSIANS la, kita. Great feeling.


The recipients :  PPR Bt Muda ... we were distributing items to them in packages form : Rice, Eggs, Cooking Oil, Flour etc etc.



The volunteers : We have we-fie after the session. Hehe. The Malay-guy is a Sabahan. :)

Sunday Noon : MAGIC

Came back around 1.30pm ... lunch ... and off I go to cyberjaya! They are having an event there yesterday from 8am to 6pm. My second time to MaGIC ... and discovered a few new idea, shared by many startup ... such as MobileWaiter, A+ Home Tuition, CatchThatBus, LaundryDone, StayNest and such. There is another ... regarding crowd-funding which I m interested but they are charging 10% of the funds.

Idea : Imagine I needed RM250k to set-up an orphanage(my personal dream when I retire la) ... I could use their crowd-funding service to reach out to those pubic who supported my good-cause and donate to the fund. The system could track all the donors(in case to refund to them if not materialised) ... and could be transparent enough for me not to worry of getting money into my personal account(do not donate to my personal account without my knowledge!!). Will look into more of these crowd-funding idea ... I want to spend my retiring years helping those kids ... feed them, educate them.

So ... my new groups I joined recently are book-sharing group, MaGIC events(invested into MobileWaiter ... do support. Thinking to invest in another startup) ... joined ToastMaster last year but failed badly so far (only done cc1 la) ... but will come back to TM. Joined Peter Yee's WMT group to learn how to use whole-mind rather than just my logical brain.

Will want to blog about someone who asked me " What is your secret to success?" ... when I was ... "huh? Me? Success ...?? Not yet leh. I still riding my old kap-cai". Haha

Time for lunch ... out of market at the moment. No need to monitor ... tonight e-meeting to analyse KLCI again. Haha.
