Miss India: Food Food Food!

If you haven’t noticed by now, I love to blog about food. Well, an investor-trader must eat out also right? It’s not all about sitting in front of the screen watching tick charts all day! Haha.

A couple of weeks ago, I went to this place called Miss India. The prices were in my opinion, reasonable. I went with my partner and my partner ordered rice with Tandoori chicken and I ordered Thali (I have no idea what the word actually means).

Due to the food being so good, I have to post up some pictures!

Here’s the rice with Tandoori chicken. Cost? AUD6.50. Look at the massive chicken maryland! Totally worth it.

Now the Thali. Cost? AUD10. It consists of rice, roti, three types of meat curry, and salad.


Do go there when you’ve got the chance (i.e. if you are already in Brisbane or about to go to Brisbane).

A couple of days ago, I went to IKEA Australia for the first time. The only IKEA in Queensland mind you and 1 of 3 in Australia. Can you believe it? Such a huge country but only 3 IKEAs.

As usual, IKEA never ceases to amaze me. It was like a trip to a theme park for me. Hehe. Imagination runs wild. “Ooooh, I want my bedroom like that!” and “That’ll be my home office in the future” and “One day, I’m going to bring 20 thousand dollars to this place and shop till I drop.”

What I did first was browsing around the place for a while (a while means an hour plus I think), then had lunch at the IKEA restaurant. My first ever meal in IKEA and I have to say, I was pretty impressed.

This is what I ate. Fish & Chips that cost me AUD5.50 and soft drinks in a wine glass (free refills by the way) that cost AUD1.50.

Now compare the actual food and the advertised picture below. Finally, a truthful advertisement!

What is more important to you? Money or Family & Friends?

One of the most common questions posed to mankind is this:

“What is more important to you? Money, family and friends, religion, or life principles?”

So, what’s your answer? How do you rank these things in your life?

I’m sure the choice of most would be “Of course family and friends Nadlique!”

I read an article in Australia’s Money Magazine February 2008 edition a few days ago that totally changed my perspective. If you ask me now, quoting from Roger Corbett (Woolworth’s former CEO and current director of Reserve Bank of Australia), I would say:

“I don’t think of ranking these things. They are all integral parts of what makes up life for you, and they are all important. They’re like legs to a table. You need all four.”

Withdrawing EPF money for Holidays

While I was in Malaysia, I heard a story that I thought was rather… shocking.

There’s this person that lives around my neighbourhood. He recently went overseas for a holiday.

What is shocking is that he had withdrawn a sum of money from his Employees’ Provident Fund (EPF) account to fund his holiday trip. In Australia, their version of EPF is called Superannuation Fund, and in the US, if I’m not mistaken, social security right?

Now that’s a ‘smart’ move don’t you think? Take note that he still has a lot more years to go through before his retirement.

Amanah Saham Malaysia : ASM

The other day my mom went through the drawers and cupboards and surprisingly, she came across two gold coloured account books. One is hers, and another one is mine. They were Amanah Saham Malaysia’s (ASM) account books. Have no idea how long they have been there, gathering dust.

What is Amanah Saham Malaysia (ASM) you ask? Well, ASM is another one of Permodalan Nasional Berhad’s (PNB) fixed price unit trust fund.

I read PNB’s latest prospectus recently and I have compiled a summary of what Amanah Saham Malaysia (ASM) is all about.

Here are some of the features of Amanah Saham Malaysia (ASM):

Hukum Amanah Saham Bumiputera : Harus (LATEST)

Folks, I just received an e-mail about the Hukum for investments in Amanah Saham Bumiputera (ASB) and Amanah Saham Nasional (ASN). I’d like to share with you of the news article. I’m not sure from where this article is from, so if anyone can confirm, do share in the comments section. The fatwa was released by the Majlis Fatwa Kebangsaan and the hukum is HARUS.

Here you go:
