ARTICLE / May, 2016 Thinking the “Rich” Way The first step to riches is probably to think like one. We all have days when we wish we were a little richer, or much more affluent than what the figure in our bank account says. But thinking about an alternate reality where we have an abundance of riches is after all just building castles in the air. Most people want to be rich; to own obscenely expensive yachts and private jets that will bring them across the globe as and when they like; to purchase anything and everything without having the restraint of any price tag in mind; to throw parties and indulge in the lavish lifestyle fuelled by what seems to be an infinite pool of wealth – ideal as this all may be, we can at least agree that it’s definitely all easier said than done.

Attributing one’s quality of life to luck, or the lack thereof, is a common habit for many people.

ARTICLE / Apr, 2016 The Elusive Safe Haven – Back to Blue Chips? Not THE Absolute Safe Partner to Invest in, But Probably One of the Safest. Said to be named after the chip with the highest worth in the game of poker, there’s a reason why these stocks are deserving of such valuation. As promising as they may be, it is important to acknowledge the element of risk they still entail. It is unrealistic and unnecessary to assume that blue chip stocks are completely risk-free. The assumption that they will only guarantee returns (and generate absolutely no losses) is probably for one’s own reassurance’s sake. Read More

ARTICLE / Apr, 2016 Haunted Houses So Expensive/Cheap It’s Scary The Value of Haunted Houses Is Indeed to Be Feared After All. There’s always a mythical element to haunted houses that naturally cast them a few thousand miles away to foreign territories we never have to tread on – TV screens, abandoned towns, and many other obsolete places or fictional world of sorts. Well the bad news is, this assumption of these houses existing entirely in another exclusive world of their own does not mitigate the ominous aura they emanate nor does it conveniently deny their communal existence with us. On the flip side, it is perhaps somehow reassuring (or not) to remind you that these houses started off with a clean slate – they were never built with the intention of housing spectral beings meant to let our imagination run wild, only to terrorize our minds in the unsettling silence of the night. Stripping off the paranormal layer that is intrinsic to the contentious nature of these ghastly houses, the pretty wide deviation in their market values may caught you off guard just like a “spooky” surprise should.

We all want to live a life that's easy, carefree; to look wonderful, be the rockstar that walks into the room - or any combination of these. Everyone would love that - it would be too easy to live like that.

To many people, “Debt” can be a four-letter word of the worst kind - a word that many seek actively to avoid, and that responsible adults shouldn’t even begin considering.

ARTICLE / Sep, 2015 Real Estate Crowdfunding is the Now and the Future While the term ‘crowdfunding’ has been buzzing in recent years, its concept was originated as early as the 1700s when Alexander Pope sought for subscribers to pledge 200 gold guineas (£210, equivalent to an estimated current-day £26,000) to support his work in translating Greek poetry into English in exchange for acknowledgements in his book. Mozart as well sought funding to perform in a Viennese concert hall offering manuscripts to those who pledged, only to be successful in his 2nd funding campaign.

  • PRESS / Apr, 2016 Five reasons I’m investing in Cambodian real estate It’s been eleven months to the date since I last departed Cambodia’s capital city of Phnom Penh. To say that this city, and this country, is no stranger to change would be an understatement. Thirty-seven years after a murderous regime left the country with their plans for an agrarian utopia in shambles, Cambodia is a frontier market that doesn’t entirely feel like a frontier market. It feels, well, like anywhere else in Southeast Asia, only with more grit. However, the grit is fast waning. In the tourist and expat-friendly parts of Phnom Penh, new shops and restaurants are opening quickly. It was only a year ago that I suggested that the window was closing on earning easy money from simple businesses like a restaurant. That window now appears to be closed. Just walking one mile from the city’s backpacker-filled riverside to my villa in the trendy BKK1 district, I noticed a number of new high-end restaurants. I’m told that one Chinese restaurant cost more than $250,000 to build. Read More
