A Mercedes-Benz as a Graduation Present

When I first started trading and going into small-time ventures here in Australia, I had set an objective. I told myself, when it’s time to return to Malaysia, I was going to bring back a Mercedes SLK 200 Kompressor with me. Hehehe 😛

Why do I like to blog about money?

Why do I like to blog about money? Because it has been an interesting journey in itself!

Here are some other reasons:

1. I want to be financially free and wealthy one day.

2. Learn from people. For example, about ASB’s maximum amount. I didn’t know about this before.

3. Improve my writings. Even if my writings may be construed as a little informal, it does give me some practice.

4.Get inputs from people. People might not agree with me but if everything is kept civilised, I’m fine with it. After all, it was said that “Perbezaan pendapat adalah satu rahmat.” Sometimes, before I write, it forces me to do more research (through the net, through the books, through people) to improve the accuracy of my writings (although sometimes, I have to admit that accuracy is a tad compromised).

5. My arguments may be weak but I believe by writing more and more about it, I will be able to improve.

6. Share my ideas with the world (even though sometimes people may not agree and can viciously attack me through e-mails and comments).

7. Perhaps blogging could boost my confidence a little bit? Give me the courage to share ideas with people?

Golf: A Psychological Game

Any golfers out there?

I started playing golf since I was in Form 3 (15 years old). Or was it earlier? Can’t actually remember.

The first few years was pretty frustrating until I met this one amazing golf instructor. Too bad I lost contact with him already.

Anyway, when I went to college in Nilai, I trained under a new instructor who apparently trained in California and bla bla bla. Well, I screwed up my swing and got hold of some really bad habits. I couldn’t hit right for 1 year plus.

After college, went back home and went to train under my old instructor again. Thank goodness I got better!

Being in Australia, I did manage to play a lot in the beginning but life took hold and golf is now in the back burner. I’m starting to play again slowly and I’m really hoping that I can improve my swings pretty soon.

The major problem that I’ve always had when I play on the course is pscyhology-related. I can swing amazingly on the driving range but when it comes to playing when it matters, I shank, I slice, and I hook. I just can’t handle the pressure. Kadang-kadang, malu wei!

Thus the reason why I’m a bit embarassed when people invite me to play golf with them 😉

By the way, to illustrate my horrible-ness as a golfer, my handicap is 24 🙁
