The Best Jibe At OZ Cricket's Dashed Ashes

If you follow cricket, the Ashes is the pinnacle event to follow because it pits England with Australia only. The English team has had a mediocre rebuilding team for the past 5 years, compared to the mighty Aussies which has stayed in the top two status for the longest time. 

In the current fourth test, which already sees England leading the best out of 5 series by 2-1, the Aussies had to at least win one and draw the other test to retain the Ashes. A Test usually runs for 5 days and it is normal for a team to bat for at least a day or a day and a half. The entire OZ team went out in about one hour and while 60 runs is not the lowest ever score, its pathetic in terms of number of deliveries needed to bowl the whole team out.

Naturally in this Pommicide, there were plenty of jibes at the Aussies, which I follow. But the most telling, funny and hurtful is the TWEET which summarises the whole innings in one tweet. There are 140 characters allowed I think, and in normal cricket scoring one over has 6 balls to be delivered. 0 means no run from that delivery, 1 means one run etc... W means a wicket has fallen.

When you can summarise the whole innings in one tweet, its so embarrassing to say the least, but kudos to the guy who composed it.

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…
