power of positive thinking

yesterday i had a quick chat with my side team member. i ask him, "when are you going to achieve your significant milestone in business?" he said soon because he found inspiration in people like me. i am dumbfounded to be honest. i did not expect such kind words will come out from this smart fella.

he told me one thing, we both know that we are smart but we are losing out in terms of income to people who do not even have diplomas. what does this put us? sore losers. that is why he want to go all out to prove himself. he also want to help his senior partner to achieve greater heights.

his kind words made my day and i feel like i can achieve anything under the sun. just like this. he did advice, succeeding alone doesn't mean a thing. succeeding together that is something. thank you very much. i shall remember these days.

the decision that has changed my life positively 180 degree
i am thankful each other i am inspired. blogger feeling that is his best day of 2017.

Let's do this

At this moment when i type, i feel i am in me again. i am my chatty self. my confident self. my true self. i feel all my senses are peaked. i don't know what the future holds. please let this post be a gentle reminder that there are always ups and downs in life. just like how things that go up, must come down. there are things that go up, can go even higher!

thanks to my effort to be the best version of me. i have comrades now. i wake up feeling like i am much surrounded by positivity and motivation.

let's do this. you and me. together.

the excitement in your heart

i have come to believe that for everything that i come across, there is no such thing as coincidence. i learn to accept that for every event/person/thing that i encounter, there is something i can learn from him/her/it.

for today (27 nov 2016). i have followed my true heart calling for the first time. at first, there is fear. really, i have said no so many times that i sometimes wonder what am i so afraid of. is it the fear of failure or the fear of myself attaining the dream that i ever wanted. yes. learn to conquer your fear. you need to stand above it. it is better to fail than regret. what have i got to lose. i have great support system and great family that i draw my strength from. 

i shall remember this very moment. they say just follow: copy and paste. do not copy, edit and paste. just do it. it is now or never. 

how are you today? i feel it is greatly fantastic. not because i have achieved success but because i finally have the courage to say, "yes, i want to try this"

if this serves as a tough lesson, so be it

2016 Flashbacks

it has an eventful year. many new different experiences had been gone through with the flash of a second. i felt 2016 passes by very fast. it is now November. as the year end approaches, it is timely that i make a recall of the happenings in my life. since the blog is last updated about a year ago, i would like to get back my blog writing mood.

2016 will definitely be a year where i know more about my friends. when i typed more, i feel that personally, i get to know them better. one friend which i shall call C is a friend which i know through weekly badminton session. occasionally, we will chit chat about investment and job and that's it. this has been going about like four years until recently, i spent more time such as board games, swimming and movie that i get to know this friend better. he is an stock market value investor. in the past, when the subject investing is brought up, all i know of is fixed deposits in a bank and property investing. after discussing much with C, i learn that stock investing is really interesting. you have to do research, check the fundamentals and read the news about this. C wants to own a fund management company someday and hence, he is spends much time researching and sharing news about investing. i, who was always afraid about stock investing, begins to listen. so much so that i begin to ask what is the methodology in investing, how he values a company, then an idea struck me,  "why don't i start value investing?" 

the timing cannot be more right when i was reading through business articles and news that a news feed pop up that asks whether i would like to join for a brief talk about value investing. at first, my mind is hovering about whether this is just some scam class to cheat the money from you. incidents happen an another bestie of mine, M begins to stock investing as well. hence, i forward the invitation to her. she was interested and asked me to accompany her to go and the results: i become more passionate than her about value investing. we went for the briefing the first time, my heart wants to say yes but M told me, "take your time and think it through as the fee wasn't cheap at all". it is expensive. i do admit. hence, my rational thinking self convinced me to take a step back and think about it. i kept thinking about the programme subsequently. a few months later, M brought some friends to join and ask me to go for the briefing again just to see whether the case studies presented would be different "you know la, being Asians, no harm knowing more plus the course is free." so this time i went again. and immediately i signed up.

there it began, my value investing journey began. it started with a 3-day course and subsequent tutorials every month. during the course, they conducted mini games to test out the patience and investing skills of the 80 over participants. i listen and observe very closely the materials. and on the last day of the course, the put us in a room and required us to play the virtual stock trading environment. to be honest, my heart beats super fast but i remain calm because deep down i know; investment is all about numbers, research and judgment. i need to focus. the facilitators will shout here and there for stock trading news with all kind of news coming up every quarter. i sat down and think quietly. i look at the numbers and begin computing the value of the companies that are presented. through my focus, here is the result:

I won!
i was overjoyed. hahaha. i won some cold hard cash yo! part of the cash is used to fund back my 3 day course. in some way, i treat it as my subsidy of my investment amount in this course.

so, that is all my journey of investing in 2016.

then, let's move to my favourite topic of all time: friends. usually, i love to make new friends. reason being the topic of conversation is varied. hence, i took the courage to join my friend, C for waterfall hiking in north of selangor. during this fall, i was able to know my friends around me better, catch up about their latest happenings and hang out for same interest. i like this new approach. it makes me feel alive. 

Perdik fall hike
besides waterfall hiking, i have also become more accustomed to social responsibility. M suggested that we went for a visit to the kids home and buy them food and soft toys. her reasoning: she wants to feel that she is helping the uncle who is seeking cancer treatment, making the kids happy and feeling more useful to the society. i agree in no time. besides, we are quite familiar with the kids after visiting for two times prior to this. i like spending time with kids. i believe children are the future of the world. if you take care of them well, they will, too take good care of the world in the future. nobody can count on oneself only to make the world a better place to live in. you need forces and children are the best forces you should count on. previously we had a painting session and this time around, we have pictionary session. oh yes, i found out that my mind is still very much childlike at heart. i can freaking guess the children' drawing like most of the time. 

Praise Emmanuel Home
besides that, i have also know some friends who are into opening music gig. at first, i was like ok, maybe it was just some chill club and sit in the cafe sorta setting. turns out, it was the rock style kind of closed event in a rented shop lot. i was pleasantly surprised. the band performing was Relent, a local band in Malaysia. i like their music: coordinated and moving. the song is just so so. the much credit should be gone to their guest star appearance : Moira Dela Torre. OMG, her voice is superb and she is of one of the Top Voice Philippines. moira was so good that i had goosebumps. go moira. really love her voice. during her singing, she asked " are you in love?" imagine this lady asking you that question. all the fan crowds go "Yes!" really adorable. 


Are you in love?
that's it. my happenings in 2016. i love 2016 for the person I have become. Thank you 2016. btw, santa claus is coming to town.......
enjoy 2016 everyone. 

signing off,

knowing yourself is part of being a better you

after starting my new job as analyst in this mnc bank, i realised my interests and hobbies are quite different from others. up til my music choice. at first, i din really give it much thought. slowly i begin to realise this is part of me. haha... i am going to put up my interest and hobby one by one. til i know myself. i do know myself. just labelling it down might just give me a chance of reflection how can i better at the things that i do and like.

i) i like watching drama. loads of it. be it, k-drama, american series and hong kong drama. i believe i spent most of my uni years watching drama. do i feel a bit embarrassed about it? nope. happy as a bird. some might call it crazy on wasting my best years gluing myself in front of the computer screen. i would say, "it's much better gluing in front of the computer screen than doing nothing at all."
