What Have I Learnt From The Lee Family Feud Saga?

First, happy Father’s Day to all the fathers out there and hope you folks have a great family gathering/celebration. For the past week, I am sure the most viral headline news (both in mainstream and social media, local and international) is non other than our First Family’s family feud, the Lee Family Saga.  One would wonder how come a family with such a high status and power are “washing their dirty linen” in the open?

How You Interpret This Story Is The Way You Perceived Joy

In Tan Chade-Meng‘s latest book, Joy On Demand, there is a mini story (or should I say joke) which I thought is quite funny and thought-provoking at the same time. So, I am sharing it here and provide my takes on this story/joke. The story goes like this: Once upon a time, a Chinese guy went to see a fortune-teller. After the fortune-teller read his palms carefully, she said to him, “You are miserable now, and you will continue to suffer misery until you turn forty.” He asked excitedly, “What happens after forty? Will my misery finally go away?”...

Is The Market Really Crashing By End 2017?

No, this is not my prediction. In fact, this is the prediction by the author, Harry S. Dent Jr in his book, The Sale Of A Lifetime – How The Great Bubble Burst of 2017 – 2019 Can Make You Rich. In the book, he categorized the stock market cycle into 4 seasons (just like the weather) and boldly predicted that end-2017 till late 2022 will be the market winter season (i.e. the greatest danger period for market crashes and recession/depression). He cited a couple of guiding principles in identifying the market bubbles and also some justification for his...

My mutated DCA – Follow-up Action

As per my earlier post on my mutated DCA (Dollar Cost Averaging) “strategy” on Singtel (click here to read more why I called it “mutated”), I’ve expanded by “scope” to include another counter, Asian Pay Television Trust (APTT), of which I’ve written previously (click here) the reason I am interested in this counter. Ya, I know, the price (at 55 cents) is higher than my indicated target entry price (50 cents or below) but after considering that it will be a DCA play and it’s only a minion (don’t misread) shares, I am alright with that.

Lollapalooza Tendency – Mother Of All Psychology Tendencies/Biases

As per my earlier post, I am currently reading the book entitled Charlie Munger : The Complete Investor, by Tren Griffin (click here to see more). While I am still half way through the book but there is one psychology bias or tendency that caught my eye, and it’s called : Lollapalooza Tendency. The reason it caught my eye is because the word seems exotic and odd sounding! :-) And when I googled the term, the first in the search result is an annual music festival at United States! Not helping…hahaha. In any case, I believed this is a term...

The Goal Is To Have No Goals, But To Have…

Today’s post was inspired by one chapter in Rod Judkins‘s book, The Art Of Creative Thinking. So, it’s kind of unconventional, many people might find it illogical, which is understandable because you can’t have too much logical thinking in creativity. Anyway, the point of this particular chapter of the book is discussing why people tends to over-rate the “goal setting” and its “side-effects”. For example, if you’ve set a particular goal, especially those S.M.A.R.T. goals* (e.g. achieving financial independence in 2020), you might fall victim of the following side effects. When you have goal, the route to it becomes...
