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 πŸ˜›

According to my projections, it was possible! Fast forward a few years later and thanks to the Global Financial Crisis, I was nowhere near to that πŸ˜›

Well, that’s life. No biggie.

I did however saved up some money to top up my long-term investments and some to be re-invested into another business venture that I plan to work on in Malaysia if the situation warrants. So, all is well. I’m happy.

  1. Talking about ambition of having sports or luxury car, it reminds me of having read the book a few days ago titled “I Bought The Monk’s Ferrari” by Ravi Subramanian. The book revolves around 23 year old professional who sees a Ferrari on road and makes an aim to have his own FERRARI. It is a thought provoking book by Ravi Subramanian, in which he provides business thoughts and approach to achieve what you aim for. It seems that FERRARI has become synonymous with SUCCESS.I suggest you to read the book….
