It’s finally the time I bid my farewell to my colleagues and team members. I brought them out for drinks and we enjoyed the night. Then I spent the last week of September with my wife, exploring Singapore and hunting good meals. It’s a good break before I started in the new workplace.

There was a sell-off on tobacco company in Indonesia due to plan by the government to increase excise by 23% early next year. I bought some Hanjaya Mandala Sampoerna and Gudang Garam during the sell-off. I didn’t smoke, so the decision to buy the shares was purely an investment decision.
