The Haze

What's that in the photo?

It's the tallest building in Penang, KOMTAR!

It looks so blur, isn't it?

I didn't make any photo editing. I swear.

The haze has 'attacked' Penang. It's very hazy today.

I wonder....
how long will it last?

I wonder....
why is this problem remain unsolved for so many years??

I wonder....
how many people have sick because of this???

Really hope that the haze will say good bye to us very soon..... Haze, please go away......

Final Week For Google Reader

Are you use of Google Reader?

If you do, you should beware of this.

Google Reader is closed starting from 1 July 2013. 

So this is the final week for Google Reader.

I felt sad when I knew this few months ago. I was wishing Google would change their mind. But it doesn't happen. 

I am an active user of Google Reader. It helps me to follow people. I can view all the posts for all the blogs I follow through Google Reader. I don't need to go the blogs one by one to check for the updates.

It makes things easier right? 

I view all in Google Reader. When I want to comment on something, I just need to click it, and it will link me to the blog.

As it come to the end, I have no choice, I need to add all the blogs I am followings into 'bookmark', and visit the blogs one by one starting from July.

Insomnia Because of Coffee

I was insomnia.

I thought caffeine has only little effect on preventing me from sleeping, but who knows, 2 nights ago it makes me hardly get into sleep. I got on bed at 11 something, but after laying for an hour, I couldn't sleep. I then got off from bed to do my thing and got back to sleep at 2am. Sadly, I woke up at about 5am and couldn't get back to sleep. So I slept for 3 hours only. And I feel really tired when I go work.

From now onward, I dare not drink coffee at night anymore, unless I plan to sleep at late night.

Going Back To Work

Finally, I am going back to work again.

Two days ago, it was the first day of going back to work. Perhaps, I was too excited? I woke up at 4am. I laid until 4.30am before I got off from bed.

After prepared myself, I left my home about 5 to 10 minutes before 7 o'clock.

I thought the bus was going to be crowded, but it didn't.

Perhaps, more buses have been provided? If yes, it's great.

How do I feel now after working for 2 days?

Generally, everything is still all right, just I have the challenge for time management.

During weekdays, I left my home for work at 7am and reach home at about 7pm. Thus, I have only a few hours to do my things (rough one hour in the morning and 4 hours at night). Fortunately, I decided to stay inactive in Facebook. Or else, I don't think I have time to do any other things. 

In these two weeks, I believe my greatest challenge is going to be adapting myself to work and managing my time. 

Well, hope things get better. Have a nice day!

Investment Gathering At COOB Coffee, Penang

After gathering in Gurney Drive one and a half years ago, Deric was here in Penang to have investment gathering again. We had our gathering last night at COOB Coffee. Beside Deric and his girlfriend who were ocming from KL, there were also people coming from Tambun, Chai Leng Park, and also Kedah. I felt so glad to see that, especially two juniors from my former university coming from UUM after finished yesterday's exam.

Thanks to all of them, I have a wonderful night. We shared our knowledge, and we learn from each other. Again, I learned a lot from Deric.

Time always the enemy of wonderful moment. We started our discussion and sharing at 6 o'clock and ended at about 10 o'clock. We spent four hours together, but it seems like only one or two hours only. Time passed very fast.

After the gathering, five of us had our second round somewhere around Jetty. We were there until 12 o'clock. I enjoyed this gathering a lot.

Oh ya, also shouldn't forget to thank Andrew as well. Andrew, thank you for fetching me home after the gathering.

Say Hello to Working Life Again

Yo! Just like my title says, I am going back to work again!

It means, my journey of being an full time investor (9.5 months) ends here.

I know it's a shock for some people. I believe a lot of people never expect I could go back to workplace (even those who are nearest to me) so sudden.

2 days ago, I posted in my Facebook, asking is there any vacancy. And today, I have confirmed of going back to working life. I am starting my working life next Tuesday.

Now, I guess your next question is, 'where? what job?'

I am going back to my former firm, Honglim & Associates, the firm I resigned from. After working for 10.5 months, I resigned August last year. But this time, it's different. I no longer joined as an audit assistant, I am joining to handle the tax part. It's going to be a new start again. And I have new thing to learn again.

Hope I would able to adapt to this new life. I will try hard to work happily, and I will work hard. I hope this decision can lead me to a better life.

Waking Up Early

If you are following my Facebook, you would know, I am having some troubles recently. I admit, I am mentally weak. I am very emotional nowadays.

For the past few months, I didn't sleep much. I hardly got into sleep. Sometimes, I sleep at 1am. Then I woke up very early in the morning. Today, I woke up at about 5.15am. I tried to get back to sleep, but I failed. A lot of things keep popping up into my mind. I couldn't stop thinking and worrying. 

I met a friend yesterday. He is a wonderful guys. I know he is trying to help me. He doesn't continue to see me trapping myself here. 

I wish to be not emotional. But then, it's too hard.

I keep giving me a lot of reasons, but yet, it couldn't get myself out.

One person told me that time will fade everything. Will I? I am not sure.

My Respectful Friend in Stock Market, Deric Yee

Suddenly, I am thinking of introduce a friend of mine in stock market, Deric Yee! He is one of the most respectful friend I ever met. 

Even he is young, he have achieve great success in stock market. Fot the past 4 years, he has generated compuded annual growth rate of 77.8%.

Thanks to OSK Investment Challenge. I knew him through the competition. However, our style in stock market are completely different. I am long term investor while he is short term speculator. There is no much common topic that we can talk as we are in two different direction. So, we didn't really chat at the beginning. 

Thing changes after a gathering 2 years ago. He came Penang and we gathered up. He shared about his knowledge and I was impressed. Besides mastering the Technical Analysis, he has also developed some unique technical indicators that work exceptionally well in Malaysia market. His models had allowed him to tap into opportunities that arise in some of the most sophisticated segments of the market.

As he is quite an expert, I felt a little nervous to meet him. But then, I felt surprised. He is extremely friendly. So, that gathering end up to be one of the greatest investment gathering I ever had in my life. Since then, we chatted with each other more frequently. I learned quite a lot of thing from him.

This year, he launched his website called Stocks Trading Malaysia to share his thought on stock market. He is also conducting classes to teach people how to trade in stock market. 

2 weeks from now, he is coming to Penang again. I am going to meet him up for dinner (on 15th June). I am looking forward to that gathering. I am sure it is going to be another memorable gathering.
