Investment property as a haven for your child’s education fund?

How’s this for an idea? Instead of saving money for your kid’s tertiary education someplace else, park that money in an investment property.

I’ve read in a few books talking about this as well, and as far as I’m concern, I’m going to use this strategy sometime in the future.

The two B’s in Trading (Equities, Derivatives)

I’m not too sure whether I got this from a book or I thought of it myself. Anyhow, in trading, I believe that you need to possess the two B’s. What are they? Well, they are:

1. You need to be BOLD

Being bold is indeed very important in trading. You need to be able to make out what’s happening with the market, be if you’re a believer in fundamental analysis or technical analysis. Often also, you need to make split second decisions.

2. You need to have BALLS

Being gutsy is also very important. Without this quality, you’ll freeze in front of the monitor, I promise you that. Plus, you need a lot of bravery to see your trading money whipsawing every other day.

So, if you’re a trader out there, do you possess these two qualities? As for me, I still need to do a heaps of work in expanding my BOLDNESS and enlarging my BALLS, so to speak 😉

This is another book on blogging written in Bahasa Melayu by Malaysia’s very own Rosli Jamal.

The book is rather basic, in a sense that it pretty much covers the same thing as what other similar books for bloggers-to-be covers. I guess, main advantage is that it is in Bahasa Melayu. Definitely a plus point for folks whose first language is not English.

Under Attack by a virus called XP ANTIVIRUS 2008 (How I got rid of it)

While surfing a webpage, all of a sudden, my firewall automatically turned off, and my wallpaper suddenly changed to a picture displaying “your computer has been infected by ‘so and so’ virus.”

I tried to revert back to my old wallpaper, but that option wasn’t available to me.

I tried to google my problem but I couldn’t get anywhere. I was instead forwarded  to random websites (browser hijacks???).

My reaction was, “oh shit, what now…

Project Smoke: Fine Arts with Nikon D80 (Abstract Photography)

I enjoy looking at patterns. That is why I like abstract photography. Meaningless junk to the next person might actually mean something to me.

A couple of weeks ago, I did a mini project of my own codenamed Project Smoke. Nothing big, nothing fancy. Just trying my luck photographing smoke trails.

For muslims, preparing a will and distributing his or her assets upon death in line with the Faraid law is a must. There is no getting around that.
