Coffee-date with BC



Good morning ... Saturday is whole day class for me. Just done one (8.30am) and awaiting next one.

This morning, our chatbox talking about RIGHT ISSUES (which may not be right ....but that is one of the right way for companies to raise funds).

It is an interesting topic, needs further investigation on stocks which went through right-issues.

Few 'popular' once recently were AAX ... MBSB ... Armada ... of coz we still remember MAS? Or the notorious right-issue by Maybank to acquire stakes into BII.

So ... i will want to write about these ... after re-collecting those information and we shall have a check which is doing well AFTER the right-issues .. which are not. Then, place the reasons on the WHY. Investigation going on ...



Perhaps, I will use Yinson's right-issue as example?


As today busy with classes and tonight is Liverpool's game ... i could only try to attend this InvestSmart Fest tmr noon (morning still got a class and my boy's badminton game). Tmr night got an appointment.

Oh yes ... I got another coffee-date today ... interesting. Another free coffee ... at Coffee-Beans again! haha.

Let me recall my coffee-date with BC, a lawyer in profession.

I met BC last month ... we seldom see lawyers in KLSE? Well ... he is kinda different type of lawyers ... he worked with a local broker firm when he started his career some 20plus years ago! Yes, he seen the 1997-1998 crash ... but he was not in invest/trade ... he is busier suing clients for not paying! Haha ...

One point he brought up during the 97-98 crash is ... EVERYONE was down. Those remisiers who used to be happy (many made millions during the BULL 93-96) and jovial ... the mood changed so so drastic and ... each time he greeted them GOOD MORNING ... some would be so cynical ...

... what is there to be GOOD about the MORNING!!

He was too young back then ... to understand ... that is the time to BUY stocks and INVEST. So ... he missed the whole crash ... too busy and too many court-case ... suing each other for MONEY. Yeah ... many went through the PAINFUL 1997-1998 crash ... without recovering their lost monies.... their pride battered and many have quitted. NO MORE stock-market for me, they sweared.

My friend, SC ... who is my long-time 'supporter' ... joined my stock-watch group some years ago. He is more of buy-hold ... till certain %, take profit. Easier to speak to him as he worked in broker-firm previously, before he ventured out to open his own law-firm. He is doing very well ... an ex-UM (my junior, haha).

Then ... we shared about 2008 crash. He missed too!! In fact, due to his buy-hold stance, he was stuck in some of the stocks during 2008 crash. Understandable as he is not a trader ... busy with his works too. We met to discuss my preparation for market crash and he is defnite to continue in my trading-group to capitalise on the coming crash!!

It is always good to know many people from different backgrounds, experiences ... lines ....

I asked him a silly question : BC, do you think I m kinda 'stupid' to prepare for crash at the moment ... or is it a work of a 'genius'?

haha ... only a genius would do such, he replied. haha.

With his words ... i m convinced to continue to prepare ... and asked him not to MISS the crash again ... his third this time. He said he will retire after capitalise on the crash ... and as I will too, we will have more time for coffee-date ... in future.

These are members .. turning becoming friends. I do have many ... where over the years, I treasure the friendships built rather than just talking about stock-markets or money?!

We chatted for hours ... and that was one great coffee-date with a long-time no see friend.

Got to go again ...

House MD : Song-clips


This weekend, i will buy the full collection of HOUSE ... this was my fav TV-series ... the only one I allowed myself to watch some years ago when it was showing over AXN (Astro) when I was in KK ... I missed many of the episodes ... and since I m free now, time to enjoy ...

Here are few of the songs I like ... and share.



Limp Bizkit - "Behind Blue Eyes"(originally by The Who)

No one knows what it's like
To be the bad man
To be the sad man
Behind blue eyes
And no one knows
What it's like to be hated
To be fated to telling only lies

[Chorus:]
But my dreams they aren't as empty
As my conscience seems to be
I have hours, only lonely
My love is vengeance
That's never free

No one knows what its like
To feel these feelings
Like i do, and i blame you!
No one bites back as hard
On their anger
None of my pain and woe
Can show through

[Chorus]

Discover l.i.m.p. say it [x4]
No one knows what its like
To be mistreated, to be defeated
Behind blue eyes
No one knows how to say
That they're sorry and don't worry
I'm not telling lies

[Chorus]

No one knows what its like
To be the bad man, to be the sad man
Behind blue eyes.






Nickelback - "If Everyone Cared"

From underneath the trees, we watch the sky
Confusing stars for satellites
I never dreamed that you'd be mine
But here we are, we're here tonight

Singing Amen, I, I'm alive
Singing Amen, I, I'm alive

[Chorus:]
If everyone cared and nobody cried
If everyone loved and nobody lied
If everyone shared and swallowed their pride
Then we'd see the day when nobody died

And I'm singing

Amen I, Amen I, I'm alive
Amen I, Amen I, Amen I, I'm alive

And in the air the fireflies
Our only light in paradise
We'll show the world they were wrong
And teach them all to sing along

Singing Amen, I, I'm alive
Singing Amen, I, I'm alive
(I'm alive)

[Chorus x2]

And as we lie beneath the stars
We realize how small we are
If they could love like you and me
Imagine what the world could be

If everyone cared and nobody cried
If everyone loved and nobody lied
If everyone shared and swallowed their pride
Then we'd see the day when nobody died
When nobody died...

[Chorus]

We'd see the day, we'd see the day
When nobody died
We'd see the day, we'd see the day
When nobody died
We'd see the day when nobody died




ColdPlay  - "The Scientist"
Come up to meet you, tell you I'm sorry
You don't know how lovely you are

I had to find you
Tell you I need you
Tell you I set you apart

Tell me your secrets
And ask me your questions
Oh, let's go back to the start

Running in circles
Coming up tails
Heads on a science apart

Nobody said it was easy
It's such a shame for us to part
Nobody said it was easy
No one ever said it would be this hard

Oh, take me back to the start

I was just guessing
At numbers and figures
Pulling the puzzles apart

Questions of science
Science and progress
Do not speak as loud as my heart

Tell me you love me
Come back and haunt me
Oh, and I rush to the start

Running in circles
Chasing our tails
Coming back as we are

Nobody said it was easy
Oh, it's such a shame for us to part
Nobody said it was easy
No one ever said it would be so hard

I'm going back to the start

Oh [x4]



Avril Lavigne - "Slipped Away"
Na na, na na na, na na

I miss you, miss you so bad
I don't forget you, oh it's so sad

I hope you can hear me
I remember it clearly

The day you slipped away
Was the day I found it won't be the same
Oh

Na na na na na na na

I didn't get around to kiss you
Goodbye on the hand
I wish that I could see you again
I know that I can't

Oh
I hope you can hear me
'Cause I remember it clearly

The day you slipped away
Was the day I found it won't be the same
Oh

I've had my wake up
Won't you wake up
I keep asking why
And I can't take it
It wasn't fake
It happened, you passed by

Now you're gone, now you're gone
There you go, there you go
Somewhere I can't bring you back
Now you are gone, now you are gone
There you go, there you go,
Somewhere you're not coming back

The day you slipped away
Was the day I found it won't be the same no..
The day you slipped away
Was the day that I found it won't be the same oh...

Na na, na na na, na na
I miss you


Dido - "White Flag"
I know you think that I shouldn't still love you,
Or tell you that.
But if I didn't say it, well I'd still have felt it
Where's the sense in that?

I promise I'm not trying to make your life harder
Or return to where we were

But I will go down with this ship
And I won't put my hands up and surrender
There will be no white flag above my door
I'm in love and always will be

I know I left too much mess and destruction
To come back again
And I caused nothing but trouble
I understand if you can't talk to me again

And if you live by the rules of "it's over"
Then I'm sure that that makes sense

I will go down with this ship
And I won't put my hands up and surrender
There will be no white flag above my door
I'm in love and always will be

And when we meet
Which I'm sure we will
All that was there
Will be there still
I'll let it pass
And hold my tongue
And you will think
That I've moved on....

I will go down with this ship
And I won't put my hands up and surrender
There will be no white flag above my door
I'm in love and always will be

I will go down with this ship
And I won't put my hands up and surrender
There will be no white flag above my door
I'm in love and always will be

I will go down with this ship
And I won't put my hands up and surrender
There will be no white flag above my door
I'm in love and always will be


Audioslave - "Be Yourself"
Someone falls to pieces
Sleeping all alone
Someone kills the pain
Spinning in the silence
To finally drift away
Someone gets excited
In a chapel yard
Catches a bouquet
Another lays a dozen
White roses on a grave

To be yourself is all that you can do
To be yourself is all that you can do

Someone finds salvation in everyone
And another only pain
Someone tries to hide himself
Down inside himself he prays
Someone swears his true love
Until the end of time
Another runs away
Separate or united?
Healthy or insane?

To be yourself is all that you can do
To be yourself is all that you can do
To be yourself is all that you can do
To be yourself is all that you can do

And even when you've paid enough, been pulled apart or been held up
With every single memory of the good or bad faces of luck
don't lose any sleep tonight
I'm sure everything will end up alright

You may win or lose

But to be yourself is all that you can do
To be yourself is all that you can do




Snow Patrol - "Chasing Cars"
We'll do it all
Everything
On our own

We don't need
Anything
Or anyone

If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me and just forget the world?

I don't quite know
How to say
How I feel

Those three words
Are said too much
They're not enough

If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me and just forget the world?

Forget what we're told
Before we get too old
Show me a garden that's bursting into life

Let's waste time
Chasing cars
Around our heads

I need your grace
To remind me
To find my own

If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me and just forget the world?

Forget what we're told
Before we get too old
Show me a garden that's bursting into life

All that I am
All that I ever was
Is here in your perfect eyes, they're all I can see

I don't know where
Confused about how as well
Just know that these things will never change for us at all

If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me and just forget the world?




Keane - "Somewhere Only We Know"
I walked across an empty land
I knew the pathway like the back of my hand
I felt the earth beneath my feet
Sat by the river and it made me complete

Oh simple thing where have you gone?
I'm getting old and I need something to rely on
So tell me when you're gonna let me in
I'm getting tired and I need somewhere to begin

I came across a fallen tree
I felt the branches of it looking at me
Is this the place we used to love?
Is this the place that I've been dreaming of?

Oh simple thing where have you gone?
I'm getting old and I need something to rely on
So tell me when you're gonna let me in
I'm getting tired and I need somewhere to begin

And if you have a minute why don't we go
Talk about it somewhere only we know?
This could be the end of everything
So why don't we go
Somewhere only we know?
Somewhere only we know?

Oh simple thing where have you gone?
I'm getting old and I need something to rely on
So tell me when you're gonna let me in
I'm getting tired and I need somewhere to begin

And if you have a minute why don't we go
Talk about it somewhere only we know?
This could be the end of everything
So why don't we go?
So why don't we go?

Ah-ah-ah
Ah-ah-ah

This could be the end of everything
So why don't we go
Somewhere only we know?
Somewhere only we know?
Somewhere only we know?




As I listened to hundreds .. perhaps thousands of songs --- Malay, Chinese and English ... these are just few of my favourites ... this is my TASTE.

How I search for a Chinese song



I was listening to some old songs ... in Chinese. Heard a song for first time ... nice. Then, I started to check the youtube ... to keep the songs I like (either in FB or blog here).

Step 1 : check the name of the song and the singer. Mind you again, I cant read much.


Can see some Chinese characters there? I tried to recognise the singer by her voice and her names in Chinese ... so, I took my nearest guess ... should be the singer who sang one of the song I like "Hao Xin Fen Shuo" ... so ...

Step 2 : Go to youtube search ... key-in han-yu pin-yin "Hao Xin Fen Shuo" ... and check.


Bingo ... the Chinese characters look different but I know a little about those traditional and modern Chinese words.

盧巧音 = Candy Lo.

Step 3 : Search for the song


Check those lists shown ... something to do with 'kai fa' ... there. I could read the word 開花

Step 4 : Choose the clip with good audio ...


Step 5 : then, copy the 'code' to embed in the blog.




There you are ... to post it here a picture, I have to take a picture using my smartphone, then send them to my FB (only me) ... save in this pc ... before I upload them up. See how 'banana-uncle' done so many steps to listen to a song and share it here? haha.

Enjoy the song, anyway.

Stock Alert : BAT (code 4162)



This is the weekly chart of BATMAN ... I mean, BAT the kelawar (no relation to Melewar, ok?)

The arrow pointing DOWN la ... so, it is down-trending. The horizontal line is the current resistance at RM52 level. Yes ... I caught some kelewar when it dived ... but I m no longer interested with this heavy-weight. muak.

Do you know that kelawar could be makan-ed? I do remember I eaten some when I was young. Serious. but since then ... I will never like to try ... I wont. haha.

Ok ok ... this is for someone holding to BAT and wonder if he should liquidate his position. Most of people buying into BAT are investors ... they hold long-term for dividends and defensive play. All I could see from the chart is that it is down-trending .. and no signal or reason to buy at current level.

Ok ... continue to stay lazy for today and smell coffee now.

Lazy Monday


Monday morning ... lazy morning. In office to clear of my things/items as I m shifting out by this weekend. yeah ... managed to sell off all the items and met the landlord(he is renting out this office in ss15/8a .. those looking for a place to rent, contact me ... will post photos/details later).

I got another hour or so to burn ... then, to fetch my girl. Don't know what to write ... as I m 'lazy' now ... market is kinda boring too. haha.

Perhaps ... I could go to café and smell some coffee there ... alone.

Maybe I should write about bizarre Liverpool's performance ... beating Chelsea but lost to Burnley? Hmm ... I do like seeing Mane playing at the moment ... fast (remind me of Sterling). Disposing Benteke was a good plan too as he is not contributing much ... well, we shall watch how they perform vs low-level teams.

This month would see some changes ... moving out of the office is the main one plus few more changes expected in coming weeks/months (such as selling of my apartment).

so ... with many things in mind, needing to be cleared ... I m waiting ... while waiting for correction in markets too ... I do some reading.



Book-sharing : I will have a book-sharing session and will share a topic from this book called "Tactical Investing". When? I don't know ... my brain not functioning at the moment ... will update once planned.

ok ... going out for coffee ... off

Retirement plan ... in progress


My post on my FB yesterday ... when I was asked what I want to do after I retired.

Retirement plans ... my dream.

1. I like biking
2. I like to take pictures.
3. I like to blog
4. I like to do some charities
5. I love Malaysia


So ... after retired, I will be travelling around whole Malaysia on my bike ... taking pictures of charitable-homes and promote them in my facebook and blog. I will create an organisation for that and do crowd-funding.

These are my retirement plans ... we need to do what we love and close to our heart.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I want to elaborate ... add in also that "I like listening to songs".

Once I m retired ... I will be focusing in doing things close to my heart ... that doesn't mean what I m doing right now is not important ... it is a process.



BIKING : I m still riding bike (my kapcai) ... and will be getting a new bike once I retired. It could be a simple kap-cai or a good big bike. It doesn't matter to me as it does not define me! Importantly, I manage to travel on the bike ... from places to places, to carry out my tasks and mission. Well ... I won't mind a Vulcan, tho. Hehe.

Yes ... I would love to ride my bike ... round the whole country, and in touch with most of my trading-members (by the my whole stock-watch group would be free) ... thank them personally for their supports all these years and spread with them my doings (into charity) and gather some supports from them too.



MALAYSIA : I will only travel the whole country ... yes, Malaysia only. I love my country very much .. irrespective of political or religious differences ... charitable organisations SHOULD be independent. I will make such the organisation I m going to create would be one! And yes, to help Malaysians ...!!


CHARITY : We do have many charitable homes which need to be attended to. And I have visited 10-20 of them ... in my 6 yrs being in KL. Some I would organise the donation drives by myself, some I would just follow those organised by others ... it doesn't matter to me again. It is the objective, the mission that matters. Depending on the FUNDS I have ... if I gained hugely from the market-crash and managed to gather funds from supporters too ... I will create my own organisation with the main function of integrating MANY existing homes(I knew what missing and needed to be done). But ... if my funds much smaller ... I will do it in smaller scales. It doesn't matter to me, see?

Happiness is doing what close to heart ... in small scales .. or large, it doesn't matter.



PHOTOGRAPHY : As I do like to take pictures (not selfie, not food ... ), I will be taking lots of photos of those charitable-homes and inmates. I will promote them ... will like to create awareness ... thru lenses.

Yes, I will learn photography ... get some equipment and enjoy those creation on mine! That would be my hobby-in-making ... and I have bought a basic DSLR (digital) camera to play with.

I know I will enjoy ... biking to places, take pictures of those charitable homes ... and blog about it!!



BLOG : Yes ... perhaps change this blog into charity-blog ... and link with more charitable homes, employ someone to updates and create blogs for all the homes I m visiting!! This is still in "fairy-land" at the back of my mind ... but, hey, I like blogging ... and you could see that I will blog about things I like! Isn't that LIFE? haha

Alright ... adding in SONGS ... I like that too. I will be listening to songs while riding the bike, while working on blogs ... while on the move!! I need earphone, headphone, mp3 player, disc-player etc etc. haha.

QUESTION : If you are retired, what have you been doing? Are you doing something you like ... and enjoy? Something significant? If not ... would you like to JOIN ME?

For those around my age (near 50), what are your plans when retiring in years to come? Would you like what I m planning to do? Would you like to JOIN ME?

I will ask this question again ... when I retired.

Time to move again ... Have a nice Sunday.

My girl ... imagining herself ... balancing ... taking off ... to land of no where. haha. This was taken when we had lunch at Tg Sepat Fishing Village ... nice. Using my old Note2 only.



I m at AVANI Sepang GoldCoast here ... once or twice a year, I will like being here ... where I would allow myself to sleep ... eat keropok ... walk on the beach .. play with my kids ... yes, the first time I came here ... I love the place here.
