Wisdom and Knowledge

It’s amazing how much the world has changed over the last 20 years. Technological advancement has changed our daily lives significantly, that it’s hard to imagine a lot of us were living without a basic mobile phone at that time. It also got me thinking how my view on wisdom and knowledge has evolved.

Wisdom and Knowledge are 2 separate things. Whilst they are generally correlated, being knowledgable does not equate to being wise. Continue reading Wisdom and Knowledge

Will I make a difference in 2018?

It feels weird and awkward to write a blog again (among other things) after my long hibernation. But it’s better late than never. As the saying goes, “New year new beginning”. But before that, I should reflect on the past in order to improve for the future. Continue reading Will I make a difference in 2018?

Play Safe!

Hello! It’s been a while since I last posted. I ended my powder season with a Bang! Literally…

Summer day blues

Summer’s officially gone. (Some of my friends would even argue it’s existent here)

My parents arrived in Scotland last week, they managed to catch a glimpse of summer warmth while we were walking around the coast over the weekend. Since then it’s been the typical grey weather we get most days.

Shadows of my Past

I like taking the train. It gives me time to reflect on my past. In this information era, things move so quickly and there are often times we miss the little things in life that make it beautiful.

Last weekend I took a coastal train to Edinburgh. Although with the typical grey weather of Scotland, the green pine conifer trees along the coastal path make the scenic journey enjoyable. I also saw a few highland cows along the way which reminds me of a friend that left Aberdeen recently, you know who you are 😉

So the 2.5 hours journey made me think of a few shadows of my past, some people might call it regrets, but I think shadow is more appropriate for my circumstance.

4 Simple Ways to Invest in Volatile Markets

What would you do in the upcoming Autumn Sale? (Spring Sale for my Oz and southern hemisphere friends)

Some shops would actually state when the Sale would end. It gives shoppers a sense of urgency to encourage them to buy now. There are times when I bought games during the Sale (I am a geek after all), some games prices would go up to its normal price after the Sale, but some actually go on further discount, I get frustrated about this as I could have bought more games!!!

volatile marketUnfortunately unlike a Sale, you would not know when volatile markets would end. So with the very volatile market since 21st August, how do I shop for Bargains in this Sale?

I chatted with a good friend last week. He is a professional trader and market maker. He got concerned about my wellbeing when he read my blog post about What to do in a Market Correction.

A Storm is Coming! What to do in a Market Correction.

Over this weekend, I got quite a lot of messages asking similar questions,

“What should I do with shares? Is it going to be like 2008?”

I am sure many of you out there might be thinking the same as well.

I did plan to write about market correction before I started this blog a month ago, it’s not because I have a crystal ball, but statistically speaking, we are long overdue for a market correction. As an investor, we should prepare ourselves both mentally and financially for it.

“A Storm is coming! Take Heart Young One, the Earth Mother is Near.”
