The longest distance between knowing it and doing it.

Image
We never lack knowledge and information because there are 800 million videos and 37 million channels on YouTube. I am very sure you can find any answer on YouTube except those illegal topics. Therefore, what is the distance between knowing something and doing it? The length of the distance is measured by the amount of willingness. In short, how badly you want it. The distance does not change according to the amount of desire, but in perspective, it does feel shorter. We might be knowing too much and that knowledge might stop us from doing it. Knowledge becomes a burden in this context. But without knowledge, we are flying blindly into the unknown. The solution is to learn from others' experiences. That is a much smarter way to learn and remember to do it.

Apple big intention is to get all your money

Image
In my personal definition, marketing used to be like a bridge connecting the customer and company and facilitate a better "transaction" process. Look at #Apple and after a decade without Steve Jobs, they still able to deliver the product marketing message in an amazing way. But look deeper, do you know that Apple has a bigger intention? With the latest iPad Pro with M1 chip launch this week, I have the urge to change back to Apple Ecosystem. Let me explain to you what is the impact of using M1 chip on a tablet (and soon I predict, it will be on the future generation of iPhone). Imagine that you are putting a computer chip into a tablet. Let's assume that the chip does not consume high electrical power and also does not generate extreme heat. That is how power is the M1. Technically speaking, iPad Pro 4th generation is as powerful as Macbook Air 2020, Macbook Pro 13" 2020 and Mac Mini 2020. Crazy right? Previously, these product lines use different chips, i.e iPhone &

Mi 11 Lite - The right phone at the right price

Image
When the world is expecting a flagship killer kinda phone from Xiaomi aka Redmi series, the company release another version Mi 11 Lite aka 米11青春版 aka Mi 11 Youth version. The price range in Malaysia for Redmi Note 10 Pro vs Mi 11 Lite is different by RM100 for the almost similar hardware spec. It is suppose to be a very difficult choice. But, some how that due to limited supply of Redmi Note 10 Pro in the market, Mi 11 Lite sold like hot cakes.  Overall, I kinda like Mi 11 Lite if I imagine myself compare to the real Redmi Note 10 pro is the weight. 155g really feel weightless in your hand. I found this used set from https://www.carousell.com.my and I bought it to try out the phone and share my user experiences with you.  I like technology and I purchased the item for personal usage.

Samsung Galaxy Fit2 Open Box

Image
Apple Watch is not the 1st wearable in the market, but the wearable market is popularized by Apple Watch. Until today, I still can not accept the price range for a wearable that is more than RM1,000 and you need to charge it almost every day.  If you are buying a wearable / smartwatch, which one will you choose. Xiaomi Mi Band 5? The cheap and good or other brand? I bought a new unit Samsung Galaxy Fit2 from https://www.carousell.com.my and do a few day test on this new gadget that within my budge range. Not forgetting to tell you that I am wearing Honor Band 4 which served me well on tracking and notification alert. I like technology and I purchased the item for personal usage.

So many rich Malaysian!!

Image
You got to give lots of love to this country especially when people are sprinkling RM1 notes on the street for popularity. As of today (17th April 2021), there is 64k views on this video. If I count the ROI, RM0.15 per view is actually worth it? Do you think so? Please leave your comment. But in actually fact by professional from Knight Frank in this report at The Edge, we are really that rich now and more will become richer in the next 5 years. Knight Frank Malaysia managing director Sarkunan Subramaniam highlighted that Malaysia saw an 8% increase in high-net-worth individuals (HNWIs) between 2015 and 2020. “Despite the decrease of 8.3% from 2019 to 2020 that was possibly caused by the uncertainties during the pandemic period, we foresee there will be a significant recovery of 36% [in terms of HNWIs in Malaysia] in the upcoming five years.” So what is your number at this moment?

If there is a second wave of economy crash

Property market bubble is a common term since...2017? I forget but every year I heard that the bubble is going to burst. But in actual fact, it did not burst and it just keeps on going bigger (just like the US economy bubble) But this article is one of the best so far by  Pankaj C Kumar  regarding Malaysia property market.  source  A RM101bil burden Did you invest in property?

It is too late now to buy REITs

Image
REITs is one of the investments that have almost the same return as rental income. I repeat, almost the same as rental income, BUT not property investment. You need to differentiate between both. Rental income is for a stream of income and whereby property investment is for capital gain. There are few write up published by the local newspapers, i.e  REITs – is the worst over?  ,  REITs sector poised for a strong comeback  and  REITs remain a good bet During 2020 whereby shopping mall and offices rental income is badly affected, REITs prices have dropped. However, the price started to regain lost ground. I made a simple chart for a few REITs that have high dividend yield, low PE, and high ROE. Although the date when I prepared this chart was in February, most of the information still maintain relevant at the moment. Hope you can use it as a good reference only for your own research purpose. #jpost #financialplanning #investmentplanning #REITs

What is the main factor to consider before you buy a smartphone?

Image
  When you want to buy a phone, one of the important factors to consider is software support. For example, the Operation System upgrade and also the app itself upgrade. I am getting used to Huawei EMUI OS because it is very similar to iOS and also MIUI. Today I am going to show you EMUI 10.1 vs EMUI 11. A simple demo that upgrading is always better and it is important to buy a phone from a manufacturer that always supports future upgrades. Enjoy! #huawei #emui10 #emui11 #mate20

New Norm New Opportunity

2020 was not a pandemic year, but rather a wake-up call year and time-to-change year. We used to hear that transformation takes years to complete, digitalization business process almost take forever and the business transition was slow like evolution. But year 2020, everything happens in a blink of an eye for the good and worst. For some, 2020 was an amazing year, i.e. Grab, Shopee, and electronic gadgets. For some, 2020 was a deadly knockout to the business, i.e airline, hotel, tourism, and some international education. Seminars and events are almost completely transformed into online streaming events. Instead of physical meeting, virtual event is more common now to reduce the risk of spreading the virus. If we locked down ourselves at home for the past 2020, technically, there is no difference compared with serving our time in jail. In fact, worst of because we still need to work out axx off to pay bills. I took a leap of faith and start something else and I pray that I have the stre
