Two Key Much Needed Changes To Spur On More Retail Investors In Singapore

Personally, I am a newbie retail investor (and a very small one), hence, after testing the "water" for a couple of months, I find that the Singapore Stock Market is quite vibrant but more a playground for the big guys (or the corporate investors).

So, what I am going to share are mainly from the reviews and trailers that I … [Read more...]

Rekindled with FRIENDS… And The Reason Why I Didn’t Invest At Younger Age

Mid last month, when I was in Melbourne with wife for holiday, have a chance to rekindle with the once popular US sitcom, Friends (originally aired from 1994 to 2004). It was a repeat telecast and I am sure I've watched it more than once but the hilarious and slapstick jokes still never fail to tickle my funny bones.
