Pre-budget day : restless

10.50am : Heard the third debate ... still same issues and personal-attacks. Nothing much. KLCI flat and nothing much there, either ... awaiting budget-day. Some speculating on the increase in GST?

Recently, someone from comparehero contacted me ... it took me a month to post up the article they wanted to share.  It is a good money-site (similar to imoney/ringgitplus) which I do read some articles share from there.

I was given 2-3 articles to choose from ... so, i chosen some pointers they shared about what we could do to survive our falling MYR.

Since I m doing nothing much (in trading), I m reading more to increase my knowledge and reminding myself (revision for exams) some materials

checking these clips ... interesting.

another interesting clip ... giving us some tips to do things 'right'. haha.

Time to jalan-jalan ...

Stock Alert : AT

Updated the list ... too lazy to key-in the exact kos/nilai for each stocks. So, I just placed the 'jumlah'. Hope ASB would be able to give another 7% dividend (and I taken loan at 5% interest). I will be reading the whole interim-report for this week. It is written in Malay.

I m in 'lazy' mode ... do not want to check on things much. Few issues to settle ... so, I go-here-there to lepak ... to get my mind out of the bugging issues. Will face them head-on, anyway.

AT : activated recently for distributions. If those punters do not SELL ... now, will get very sticky and ... low could go lower.

Note : Saw Perisai at 5.5cents this morning. Do not catch.

Time to get back ... being lazy. Will update my recent coffee-dates, ok?

What Should You Do To Survive The Falling Ringgit?

According to Bloomberg last month, Malaysia’s Ringgit has posted its biggest slump in 10 months due to the lower crude oil prices and the fallout from a controversy involving a state investment firm which sapped demand for the nation’s assets.

From the projected outlook by analysts and market experts, it is very likely that the Ringgit’s performance be volatile, weighed by commodities price particularly oil prices, political uncertainties and also gloomy global economic conditions.

Taking charge of this, here are some of the proposed moves you can take to protect your assets or investments:

1.       Open A Foreign Currency Savings Account

Whether you are looking for an investment opportunity, to pay for your child’s education overseas or an international business venture, this is the evident way to own foreign currencies. It is available in various currencies such as:  USD, AUD, SGD, GBP and RMB in many local and foreign banks throughout Malaysia.

However, the interest rate rewarded for putting your money into these savings accounts is minimal, and some are even close to 0%. This is due to the overall low interest rate policies in their homelands.

2.       Invest In Retail Bonds

If you have higher risk appetite, you may go for the retail bonds that are offered by some foreign banks in Malaysia. These retail bonds are denominated in foreign currencies such as USD, SGD and AUD.

They are classified according to their credit rating; companies that are financially sound will earn higher credit ratings. Hence, investors may choose according to their risk preferences, tenure and their expected rate of returns accordingly.

1.       Invest In Unit Trusts, Stocks And Properties With Lower Volatility

More sophisticated investors may consider unit trusts, stocks and properties in foreign countries. These investments are for medium term to long term investors who has a longer holding power. In addition, you also need to do a lot of homework for your investment as the foreign markets are more volatile.

All investment involves risk, especially the foreign currency markets. We must understand that there is no one currency that is more superior to others forever. All currencies have their ups and downs that are reflected on their country’s financial strength and its political stability.

Although the Ringgit is currently in a depressed state, recovery may be just around the corner. Hence, unless you have an overseas business or children studying overseas, do not allocate more than 20% of your portfolio into foreign currency assets as foreign currency involves high risk, considering the current global economic situation from Brexit and geopolitical factors.

And also, it is important to know that most of the stocks that are benefitting from weaker ringgit or stronger US dollar are already trading at its fair value or even overvalued. So, you consider taking a look at more stable options such as dividend-stocks and REITs to secure your capital.

Speak Hokkein Campaign

Promoting Hokkien ...

I will try to speak basic Hokkien to my kids. Hopefully, I would be retiring in Penang ... one day.


Sunday blah-blah

Good morning to Sunday ... a great day to rest.

Last night I met another two of my long-lost Uni coursemates!! Will take more efforts to meet more of them ... there are around 20 of us in the watsapp ... not easy to get in touch of old friends, lost contacts for some 26years!!

CY : He was a very active person ... most active during Uni time and organiser of many events. Yeah ... he could recall so well many Uni events ... including me&him the only two silly students taken "Complex Analysis" under Prof Dr Chong Kong Ming

Note on Prof Chong's work on AM-GM : ( )
 and (

Anyway, CY is currently a lecturer in local-private Uni, after taken his Masters in Applied Mathematic. He wants to 'follow' me to capitalise in stock-market crash ... but he has zero knowledge in stock-investments

MY : She is one ambitious lady ... first class honours ... went to Spore to work, and the promoted and then shifted to China .... as China was expanding in very past pace. Imagine working in Shanghai some 10 years ago ... and still currently based in China (travelled to US often as it is a large US company). She is a senior-director of Asia-Pacific region now. Very strong lady, indeed.

We talked about education and China. Haha .. interesting to meet friends after 26years.

Life is more than just work-money-die ... at least that is how I see it. Haha. I enjoyed simple chat with old-friends ... admiring their achievements and doings.

Ok ... KLCI chart no-good after Friday. See if 1650 support ok-or-not next week.

Time to go ... have nice Sunday.

Rise by Katy Perry

I won't just survive
Oh, you will see me thrive
Can't write my story
I'm beyond the archetype

I won't just conform
No matter how you shake my core
'Cause my roots—they run deep
, oh

Oh, ye of so little faith
Don't doubt it, don't doubt it
Victory is in my veins
I know it, I know it
And I will not negotiate
I'll fight it, I'll fight it
I will transform

When, when the fire's at my feet again
And the vultures all start circling
They're whispering, "You're out of time,"
But still I rise

This is no mistake, no accident
When you think the final nail is in
Think again
Don't be surprised
I will still rise

I must stay conscious
Through the madness and chaos
So I call on my angels
They say

Oh, ye of so little faith
Don't doubt it, don't doubt it
Victory is in your veins
You know it, you know it
And you will not negotiate
Just fight it, just fight it
And be transformed

'Cause when, when the fire's at my feet again
And the vultures all start circling
They're whispering, "You're out of time,"
But still I rise

This is no mistake, no accident
When you think the final nail is in
Think again
Don't be surprised
I will still rise

Don't doubt it, don't doubt it
Oh, oh, oh, oh
You know it, you know it
Still rise

Just fight it, just fight it
Don't be surprised
I will still rise
