In Hot Water

Think about this. When you put a tea sachet in a tea cup and pour water into it, do you pour hot water or cold water?

Of course, hot water! The hotter the better, usually we pour boiling water into the tea cup, because tea expresses its' strength in hot water!

Therefore, don't blame it on the financial meltdown if you are not doing well. It's the meltdown (hot water) that gives you the opportunity to show your leadership, your skills and your business acumen.

When the time is good, nobody knows you are good. People who are still able to do well in challenging times will do even better when financial meltdown is over.

My Father Taught Me About Life

"My father taught me about life not with words, but by how he lived his." What a great a quotation !

My daughter and I found this quotation in a shopping mall recently. Do I need to say more?

We Have Been Waiting For This Time

"Retrenchments, pay cuts, layoff, bail outs..." These are the words we can read everyday in our local newspaper during the current financial turmoil.
A prominent and successful businessman, Dato' Yeoh, said this in a press interview: "We have been waiting for this time, the right time to accumulate our assets and the right time for us to invest and expend our business."

He is so right! Both the British currency and the Australian currency are very much cheaper than before. It's time to invest in these two countries, it's time to accumulate properties there.

Are you game to join him in his spending spree?
