2014 UPDATE



Dear Families, Friends, Followers and Fans,

Time flies. 2014 is coming to an end.

Have you ever pondered about how life could be better?

Have you ever wondered why some people seem to have much easier time creating wealth all the time? 

Do you feel as if something is holding you back and you just can't figure out as to what it is?

Do you struggle with financial difficulties and felt that things are only bound to get worse considering how the economy is faring right now?

If your answer is yes to any of the above questions, the answers that you seek are not far ahead. You too can achieve your success if you are willing to follow the proven recipe which I am going to share with you.

This had been another great year for me and 2015 is definitely going to be another great year for me. My life has gone from good to amazingly great. People wonder how I did it. I must say that there is no magic to it. I just managed to apply wealth visualization successfully. Thanks and credits must be given to several of my online gurus, namely Lisa Nicole, Dr. Steve G. Jones, Mario Polio and many others.

A quick and brief updates for you:-

I have published two additional books, Looking Beyond Financial Statements; Chess King to Purpose Filled Life; 2nd edition – Better Than The Best, in the midst of revision of my other books and 2 additional books are in the midst of editing. I also developed 7 additional training programs and held talks at several professional institutes and business club, apart from my normal consultancy work.

With these new additional programs, I have managed to secure additional speaking engagement till April 2015. More great news is in the pipeline. Massive actions and collaboration had been pursued to make things happen at an ever faster pace. 

My online presence and visibility have gained momentum in all aspects. More precisely it is growing effortlessly and enormously. Thanks to the internet world. My Google plus has hit more than 1.7 million views at the time of writing and is still growing at accelerated speed. 

I have secured several training engagements for the third quarter of the year. Thanks for your kind support that enabled me to be a columnist in Smart Investor magazines. With this, I hope I can add more value to the society which I have benefited from all this while. Please let me know should there be any other areas where my expertise and gifted talents are of assistance to you. These will keep me moving forward to another great year.

It goes without saying that a trainer that does not read is in danger. I had reviewed books as usual to enhance my reading and writing skills.

My next target is to get my EBooks out in the form of Hardcopies which I am negotiating with several parties. Overcoming Barriers, Pushing Boundaries, Strengthening Belief and Crossing Borders is become part of me. To make this happen, I need to expand my business further. Hope the same for you.


Stay tuned for more updates.

Thanks for your continuous support.

MY NEW EXPERIENCE WALKING ALONG THE BEAUTIFUL COASTLINE AT BRIGHTON BEACH, MELBOURNE





Greeting from Melbourne.

No matters how good is the beginning, it will come to an end. This also applies to my vacation in this lovely Melbourne. I spent almost 20 days in foreign land. I wrote this article on my last day here. At the day before, my family and I took an hour trip to Brighton Beach for its beautiful coastline. We took tram to Flinders Station, transit point for us to take the train to Brighton Beach where we spent nearly three hours to walk along the 2 km long beach. It really a new refreshing experience for us and we discovered a few attraction that made our trip very fruitful.

The whole journey took about 11 stops and passing through the sub-urban areas. I must say that the town is very well planned based on the grid plan originated from India since 5,000 years ago. The grid plangrid street plan or gridiron plan is a type of city plan in which streets run at right angles to each other, forming a grid.

Once you reached the beach, you will sense the sea breeze was rather strong and you may need to put your jackets on. It is also well known as doggie beach amongst those who love dogs. This incredibly beach offers diverse nature of things to do especially for those who like to see their pets running and playing around this doggie beach in Brighton, Melbourne (Australia). It truly makes a perfect relaxing venue for everyone!

This beach is also known as Doggie beach. This is because it is also a perfect off-lead area for dogs, with bushes to explore, sand to run on, water to swim in and many friends to be made. Dogs like humans need to socialize with other dogs. This beach uniquely offers that opportunity. Life is lovely and wonderful as the opportunities are everywhere and every moment await for you to notice.

The area is fully fenced in, and very secure. However, smaller dogs may be able to fit through the gaps at the gate if they really wanted to. This beach is large and unique, but the exact size depends on the tide. When the tide is out, seaweed is visible, another novelty for your dog. Some dog love sniffing seaweed. Can someone tell me more why they love to do that? The beach is unique because of the tide, the other dogs and the weather, every trip to doggie beach is different.
And best of all, it's free and clean! Walk in one of three gates, taking care to shut it behind you, and a new world beckons you. You will find some complimentary doggie bags, next to a rubbish bin. Cleanliness of this beach is everyone concern.

Bushes
There are bushes for adventurous pups and owners. There are creative twisting pathways through the bushes and trees. These go up and down the small hills and are very popular among the cyclists and climbers. There are many interesting scents; this area of doggie beach is extremely excellent for curious and inquisitive dogs who like exploring. Dream, explore and discovery make life truly exciting.
Running
Away from the bushes and grass is pure sand. This sandy area is brilliant for dogs that like running wild and free as nature offers. A tennis ball might be a fun game for you and your dog to play, but don't be surprised if some other dogs decide to join in the game too! This is where you can find the best views truly are, because you are just like place in a triangle to get an amazingly spectacular view. Append below are photos taken at each angles for your viewing. You are nearly surrounded by water, and behind you is golden sand where your dog can play with some new friends.
Colourful Beach Huts


beach hut also known as a beach cabin or bathing box is a small, usually wooden and often brightly coloured, box above the hightide mark on popular bathing beaches. They are generally used as a shelter from the sun or wind, changing into and out of swimming costumes and for the safe storing of some personal belongings. Some beach huts incorporate simple facilities for preparing food and hot drinks by either bottled gas or occasionally main electricity. From the photo, you can see those beautiful and colourful beach boxes, a latest attraction in this doggie beach. It is interesting to note that most are not equipped with even basic facilities such as water and electricity; therefore it is not suitable for night stay.
Beautiful Bungalow and Memorable Monument

On my way back from the beach, I have the fortune to have a short chat with a life guard. See he even allowed me to take a photo of him. His name is Toy. I was told that the beach will be full of people during January and February where people have their summer holidays and this beach is one of their favourite. He is the only one on duty as there are hardly any swimmers there. The pole in the sea indicates about 11 meter depth and many swimmers underestimated their capability and lack strength to swim to this point and may inflict self-danger.
To capture the best views, many bungalows are built along the road facing this beautiful coastline and the Memorable Monument for those who fought during the First World War. Append are some of the photos that I have taken for my memorable trip. 






CONCLUSION
I must say that your trip to Melbourne is not complete without inclusion of this unique doggie beach. You will enjoy even if you did not bring your dog along. It is truly enjoyable and relaxing when you walk slowly and steadily along this beautiful coastline. That’s why I took so many photos for your viewing.

Thank you so much for taking your precious time and effort to read this article. If you like it, please share with your circle of friend to fan their excitement in life.

GEORGE WILDLIFE PARK, ADELAIDE


GEORGE WILDLIFE PARK, ADELAIDE

Opened in 1965, is a house of many species of animals and birds. Some are in cages and many are not. You will be surprised to discover not only your favourite Australian species, but also many other exotic species that we all should be aware of and help to preserve them in any way we can, as the trustee of this planet.

The wonderful thing that we can do here is cuddling a lovely adorable Koala at certain specified hours. I strongly believe many people wanted and had waited long for such a wonderful moment.

Have you ever pondered:-
1.      Guess how long is their lives span?
2.      What leaves they eat?
3.      How many hours they sleep in a day?
4.      How to tell their gender?

Post your answers in the comment column, at the bottom of this post. Thanks you in advance.

Append above is the photo I took with this nearly extinct creature. It is truly great experience for me to have such a wonderful moment with it. Many thanks to George Park for this noble idea, which otherwise couldn’t make my dream happen.

Last but not least, I must say that this 14 acres area of Park is really worth your money. Entrance fee is at only AUD 10.00 per adult. It homes some 50 species of animals and 160 species of birds.

Stay tune. More interesting, inspiring and innovating stories are in the pipeline for your enlightenment and entertainment.

CURRY NOODLES FROM PEARL OF ORIENTAL


PENANG CURRY NOODLES IN ADELAIDE
Dear Families, Friends, Followers and Fans.

Thanks God again for another blessing.

Again I am very fortunate to get one pack of 4 Penang Curry Noodles, at only AUD 4.35, at the almost the very last minute before it close, from  China town in Adelaide. It is so tempting to get it almost instantly.

This is because it is made from my home town, Penang, which is famous for its delicacies in the world. Secondly, I really missed my Malaysian food here after my stay entering into the third week. Immediately I grabbed a pack to be prepared at my stylish, self-contained yet affordable service apartments at AUD 185 per night. To enjoy a special rate of 10% discount, you are encouraged to either book online or trip advisor.

See from the above photo what I have cooked curry noodles from my service apartment the next day and see how the food looks like after being cooked. It is simple and easy to prepare. Just pour the packet of noodles and its ingredients into boiling water. For those who know me well, I rarely do so at my home land. How nice if you could join me here? I am deeply proud to see our products in foreign land and wishing them a great success.


For those who have tried and tasted the above product, kindly share your comment via comment column provided below. I would give a thumb up for it, but don’t take my words for it, try it yourself and post your feedback here.

Thank you in advance.

BOOK REVIEW - THE BULLETTRAIN ENTREPRENEUR BY PETER ONG

BOOK REVIEW - THE BULLETTRAIN ENTREPRENEUR BY PETER ONG

I was given this book, The Bullettrain Entrepreneur by Peter Ong, because of being one of the 100 interviewees in the book; through the author’s friend, who is also my long-time friend since primary school.



I have read it and felt it deserve a review. It really stimulates my mind to embrace the 4Bs; strengthening Belief, overcoming Barriers, pushing Boundaries and crossing Borders. We live in a fast pace of rapidly changing business world that demands we adapt to continual change from stakeholders, shareholders, customers; employees, regulators and societies. This book will provide you a sane, solid and sound framework in sustaining business growth and profitability – a new competitive landscape for the new business world.

This book is well crafted with powerful proven illustrations familiar to Malaysians and others around the world, inviting us to give what the writer says serious consideration. Peter Ong does a magnificent job in raising our awareness to adopt and adapt more holistic approach in sustaining our business growth and profitability.

I must confess that I too subscribed to the 5 Ps as stated by the author i.e. Purpose, People, Process, Performance and Profit in building the foundation of my business model, overcoming Barriers to gain strength in every aspect, physical, mental and spiritual. Shaping ourselves to be adept and to accept the new environment is the surest way of obtaining success. Keep learning, unlearning and relearning to navigate our personalized path to our pre-set destiny. 

What Peter did extraordinary well is using bullet train as a metaphor. He emphasizes the “secret” of success among SMEs and entrepreneurs is actually comes from the alignment, balancing, and integration of 5 master pillars.

Peter Ong illustrates his points with numerous compelling success stories by prominent business entrepreneurs worldwide. By doing so, we are able to see the entire scene through appropriate lens without being side tracked by the complication of the business process.

"The Bullettrain Entrepreneur" is a timely business book which dares to raise issues often neglected by the majority of entrepreneurs. This book is right for new and existing entrepreneurs who aspire to gain the highest, deepest and broadest perspective on how to sustain long term prosperity in today's changing world. It is not meant to persuade or dissuade you; it’s meant to inform and to inspire you in-gaining appropriate and broad perspectives so that you are much better prepared ahead.

I recommend you accept and follow the new solid foundation towards sustainability of business success as reflected in the title of the book.

To know more concisely and precisely, please pickup the book immediately and read it. Cheers and enjoy your reading.

AN EYE OPENER TO ME

Greeting from Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. 


When I was on my way to the State Library of Victoria, Melbourne, a day after my son’s convocation, I heard loud melody music coming from the street of Swanston. I quickly investigated what the celebration is all about. Guess what? I was really stunned and shocked to find out the parade of key personnel from RMIT and its students with their graduation regalia, the gown and traditional mortarboard cap, along the street. Of course, all these students will receive well deserved recognition for years of hard work and commitment. Their Graduation Ceremony offers the opportunity for them and their loved ones to celebrate a significant milestone in their lives, and the commencement of their professional careers. No surprises that it attracted big crowds of people who also want to participate in this ceremony with cheering from every corner. The environment was amazingly warm. Of course, I have no hesitation to join in by taking some photos.

Append below are some of the lively and meaningful ceremony which I am really being enlightened. I then decided to post an article with some of the colorful photos I have taken. See the students who are happily inviting me to take their photos as if I am a part of them. It is so amazingly awesome to cheer people for their achievements.





My mind actively ponder how nice if everyone has such a spirit to celebrate others’ success. Then everyone is rest assured of peaceful world and better tomorrow. By doing so, this little act will definitely help nurture a healthy environment for us to establish sound and solid relationship between each other rather than spreading those hatred messages that create chaos in this planet.

As such, I urge you to help me spread and sow this good seed around your circle of friends. Thanks you so much for your kind action. Let us give it a serious consideration- if we don’t care, who will. Just like what Confucius said, “A man who moves mountains starts carrying a little stone.” Stone by stone, all majestic building were erected. To a great mind, nothing is too little to be ignored.

LOOKING BEYOND FINANCIAL STATEMENT - INVESTOR'S PERSPECTIVE

Looking Beyond Financial Statement – Investor’s Perspective
In today’s highly competitive and inflationary but low interest environment, we are not only compelled to invest wisely to get much higher returns than the rate of inflation, but also need to perform exceptionally well to cope with the fast paced economy. Otherwise, financial freedom will not be within our reach.
Stocks investment is a widely used tool, growing in an un-precedented scale and still growing despite it has already formed one of the major investments in any economy.To reap the maximum return, investors are going through much greater lengths to cleverly create and craft strategies, such as "Japanese cloud" formations and "economic surprise" indicators. However, no methodology seems to work all the time.
Value Investing
Contrary to speculation, there is one strategy that absolutely never fails to boost returns, and is often overlooked: value investing. The concept of value investing appeals to those who are relatively conservative and persons who prefer making decisions on analysis of the basic financial strength of a company, coupled with a search for bargain prices of shares. This profound investment strategy requires discipline and patience. It will reward such investors consistently. It is a valuation technique, a technical strategy, or a way to predict funds that will outperform market.
Research, Research, Research
The phrase “past performance can’t guarantee future performance” may sound familiar to some of you. It sounds true even in today’s market. Future is hard to predict. Seeking investments conforming to assumptions or projection about the future without considering the basic facts about a company’s strength or growth potential is unwise. Fundamentals are king. Past performance still can be good indicators that reflect the quality of its management. Financial health is equally important to serve as a rock foundation to assist the company to endure through tough times and grow further.Research, research and research is important to uncover those stocks that trade below its fair price and have great potential. So, financial literacy can’t be viewed as “spare wheel”, but “steering wheel” instead.

BACK TO BASICS
As such, good and sound understanding of finance literacy is critically important in helping the investors to make better informed decisions of their investment. It is not just business acumen. It forms a small fraction of the business yet it is significant, just like the rudder that navigates the planes and ships.To a great mind, nothing is too little. By mastering it, you are able to assess its financial health correctly, comfortably and confidently especially in regards to an adequately capitalized company and its free cash flow.
Free Cash Flow
What is free cash flow? It tells an investor how much actual cash a company is left with after any capital investments. For instance, companies that have high debt/equity ratios, especially in an industry facing tough times, naturally could be one of your first signs that a company is getting over its head in debt.
Do your home work
Read and understand annual reports carefully and assess how Management addresses those critical and concerned areas that significantly affect the companies arising from external changes. What is the quality of assets that had been invested to build or strengthen their competitiveness? What compensation plans have been put in place to retain key and talented personnel? That’s the main reason why we need to look beyond financial statements to weed out those potential growth stocks that are trading fairly lower than their intrinsic value. By looking at the bigger picture of the business such as its competitive position, product or service trends, economic and technological forces that affect its future value, you are able to select those appropriate stocks for investment. What matters most is the quality of management of the company. This is because the management serves as the brain of the company, who will respond to the endless changing environment and navigates the company to the next level of success.
Value investors focus on individual company; review its history of growth, corporate announcements and news inside out, conduct field work, raise material questions during the annual general meeting and extra-ordinary meeting if appropriate. You need to gather those findings, prior to the determination of its fair value that meets your selected criteria. It sounds simple and logical, yet it is not easy. Once the true value of a company has been determined, the value investors will look for a buying opportunity. This means they will buy stock in a target company only if they can execute an order below its pre-determined fair price.
The question arises whether such bargain arises in the market? Such stocks are in existence even in the efficient market when their potentials are unnoticed. You need insightful information to make accurate assessment of its fair value.
WHY LOOK BEYOND FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
Many investors claimed that they are long-term investors, but how many of us truly are? How many of us are really unshaken by a market nosedive or a threatening global event?  The stock market is a psychological conundrum, and we're all vulnerable to its clever head-fakes. Perhaps we need to learn and master more of our mind faculties to overcome such fear before we invest. Short-term market trends are extremely chaotic and choppy. The good news is that long-term trends rely on the fundamentals.
We should cultivate discipline to be a better skilled investor. We should act contradictory to the other investors by accumulating those bargains stocks after downside panics, hold on while the market climbs and rebalance back to our asset allocation when everyone is bragging about their gains.
You need the “know how” to stay ahead. Have you ever wondered what intelligent approach or sound reasoning you possess before you buy that particular stock? Or is your decision just purely based on a simplistic indicator. For example, a company is about to secure a new project or is going to benefit from new legislation.  However, under the value investing approach, you need to have control when you apply the rules. You will seek the series of answers of the following profound questions before you act:-
a. is the stock currently traded under its fair value?
b. what criteria determine this conclusion about valuation?
c. is the company dominant in its industry?
d. what is its recent price history?
In the long term, stock prices tend to move in line with the company earnings. It’s really that simple. Look at its past earnings trends and determine whether those trends will likely to continue into the future. Value investors need to track earnings;and not on many lists of “stock to buy.” The rationale is that it is most probably undervalued and the cyclical nature of this sector will come around again.

Excellent reputations for quality of management, products and competition are key ingredients for the value investment. A value company is most likely to have a strong domination in the industry. Always remember bargains show up in the market all the time because of the short-term irrationality of buyers and sellers. 

Even during the market downturns, value stocks tend to perform better than average, either declining less than average or even rising. In 2008, one of the worst years on US record, McDonalds rose in value while nearly all other stocks prices decline.

This does not mean that value stocks are exempt from price declines. However, well selected value stocks do tend to outperform the market as a whole over the long term. A second source of returns on a portfolio, apart from price appreciation, is dividend income. This may not be for those who desire fast growing stocks. Value investors can make the most of dividend yield by reinvesting dividends in purchase of additional shares rather than taking payments in cash.The value investor is most probably more conservative and concerned with volatility than growth investors.


Hence, it is safe to conclude that to invest intelligently and wisely, one needs to look beyond the financial statements in order to make better informed investment decisions. With the financial mastery, coupled with insight knowledge and appropriate mindset, the chance of succeeding in investment is definitely relatively much higher. To save in the bank and earning its fixed deposit’s rate is definitely a loser. This is because the interest rate is much lower than the real inflation’s rate.

Investment Strategy

As such, every investor needs to develop a series of strategies for investing. An investment strategy is a set of rules, behaviors or procedures, designed to guide an investor's selection of an investment portfolio.  Usually the strategy will be designed around the investor's risk-return tradeoff: some investors will prefer to maximize expected returns by investing in risky assets, others will prefer to minimize risk, but most will select a strategy somewhere in between.

At the end of day, every investor wants to make a profit. But without an investment strategy, how do you know which stocks to buy and which are too risky? How long will you hold those stocks?

To ensure that you achieve your goals with much certainty and consistency, looking beyond financial statements is unavoidable. Always begin with a strategy and vision, end with model and analytical insights. Stay focus on the big picture without losing the details by measuring, monitoring, managing them effectively and closely in line with the saying, “you can’t manage what you don’t measure.”

Uncovering the realities that lie behind the data is what business analytics is all about. You need to use your mind faculty to recognize those competitive edges, usually hidden to the casual observer, in those companies you have invested in.

CONCLUSION

In summary, by mastering the investment skills, you are able to handle your own investment with full accountability and commitment. “The whole science is a refinement of everyday thinking.” Albert Einstein. This is because a man’s world is a projection of his mind. When your mind is weak, you see problem.  When your mind is balance, you see the challenge. When your mind is strong, you see the opportunity. So this sound, sane and solid principle also applies to investment as well.

CABIN CREW AND NOT KEVIN KHOO


Recently I received the above joke from my former secondary school's classmate. I had not only a good laugh; but it reminded me of my most memorable aircraft delivery trip to New Zealand which purely comprised of our staff and without Kevin Khoo.

During this journey, I was not only busy paying all the cash bills; but also have to make declaration of cash holding of about USD 40,000.  I was holding the cash at the Brisbane Airport not long after our former Selangor MB's incident. Many people thought I was the owner of the plane as our plane just painted all white without any logo. The question is “Did I look like one?” Haha. Give me your feedback?

The sale of the aircraft was one of the things which helped us turn around the company. It made me fulfill one of my dreams i.e. to be turn around manager. This also caused me to over stay in this company with wealthy experiences. You may read more details at http://liftyouup.blogspot.com/2010/05/hi-friends-further-to-several-articles.html

Another more interesting thing to note is that I too had a chance to sit at jump seat (a seat just behind pilots’ seat) in the cockpit to have a real experience of the plane taking off and landing. Make a guess which is more challenging task to the pilot, taking off or landing? Without my pilot’s license, that is the best seat I can opt.

You see I was not only a passenger but also the cabin crew but not Kevin Khoo. Haha! 

Happy reading.
