Technically Speaking

I really try to not do this because I’d prefer to not write about the stock market on my website. But since I’m not really keen on documenting my personal life at this moment, I reckon, this will have to do, plus, people always seem to like talking about the market anyway. In November 2019,…

Change is cancelled

Earlier this year I was a little upbeat on how things were going. Finally I thought, things were turning up. Then things turned round pretty fast. There were a few hiccups along the way, but nothing we couldn’t handle. And then this whole pandemic thing just blew everything out of the water. It would be…

Limited movement: Experiments with coffee

Three days ago, the government has announced a restricted movement order (RMO) in order to abate the spread of Covid19 in Malaysia. Technically, its lockdown-lite, you can go out, only for essentials, otherwise, stay the fuck home. But it seems that a lot of Malaysians are taking this lightly, reportedly out and about like everything…

Driving thoughts: capital movements

In light of the recent events, I’ve decided to tune in to Bourgeois FM to hear commentaries of what’s been happening. Out of coincidence, I listened in this morning to a segment regarding regional market movements and heard the thoughts of a fund manager about what investors are doing in lieu of global developments. Obviously…

2019: An Introspection

Around the same time last year, I sat down to write about how my 2018 was. Reading back, last year for me was all over the place. It wasn’t catastrophic, though there were failures here and there, but it wasn’t much of a success either. I had hoped that 2019 would be a better year…

Merry Christmas!

Hi everyone! Just dropping by to say Merry Christmas. Still held up with a shit ton of stuff to do. A lot of things to pack, and get sorted. Have a good one! Happy holidays!

Change is coming

When I revived this blog, I had little expectations for what was going to happen. Initially when I set the whole thing up, I wanted it to be a personal blog. A space where I could write down my feelings and thoughts, a lounge for catharsis. As I time progressed, I realised that I never…

Adventures of a barista wannabe

A couple of weeks back, I was given the opportunity, by a friend, to set up a coffee kiosk at a kindy concert.

At first I was a little bit hesitant. I’ve never done anything of the sort. Mostly I would play barista at home, brewing up cups of coffee for myself, and for my occasional guests.

Checking in

I’m so sorry! I’ve been away from this blog for quite some time. A couple of (maybe just two) things have happened since then. I’ve finally graduated, after seven grueling years, I now have a medical degree! …just kidding… I have now graduated with honours, earning myself a Bachelors in Economics. I can now do…

Let’s not shut everything down with, “that’s socialism”

Talks about social inequality has gained more airtime in the recent past. As wealth becomes more unevenly distributed to the top, its dire consequences are now coming to fruition. In search of answers, people are voting in ‘strongman’ leaders to lead them towards economic prosperity. Often, voters fail to see that the leaders they have…
