    There’s a term that I keep coming across: ‘magical thinking’. Original articles here: (i) How to Avoid Delusional Thinking in Start-up Growth Strategy (ii) Why It’s Better to Have a System Than a Goal It reaffirms my believe about projections and forecasts- the overly optimistic types. It goes something like, “If we just get 1% share of this RM100 million market”. And all the rosy charts of imaginary profits and growth. Morale of the story: Get Real!
  • Is the Dengue Infection Out of Control?

    A close friend’s mother recently passed away due to dengue fever. There are friends who I know personally admitted to hospital due to dengue. Too many reports of dengue cases, and all these incidents are directly from the people I know. The regularity of these dengue reports are frightening. At this rate, I really think that the virus is starting to get out of control. Maybe it’s the change of the weather. Or the urban environment which is favorable to the breeding of these deadly Aedes mosquitoes. Whatever it is, please take extra caution. Some stats from flutracker.com: 2014…

    At Twelve Volts Technologies, we bootstrapped from Day One. And if you’ve any experience with bootstrapping, you would understand the crazy hours and insane amount of coffee. All efforts were focused on survival. And then the storms and blizzard began to calm. The burn-out is real. And for a long time, there’s finally some room to breathe. And we felt like we are ready to go on to the next phase- growth. Every business needs to grow. But growth can be a risky thing at the same time. I have seen first hand how a business ‘grew’ without proper operation plan and a line…

Kudos to me for getting up early for a 7.50 am run on a Saturday! But then again, with such gorgeous surroundings, it would have been a crime to sleep in — even on a weekend. I decided it was a good time for an outdoor run because I have only run in the gym since I started training for the marathon.

    I decided to try out Lufthansa’s in-flight internet access at a cost of €17/24 hours. This was good as I got to write emails, do some work, etc while on a pretty long HND-FRA-EZE flight (yes, it works on connections too). The connectivity isn’t that reliable. Yes, your VPN barely works. Sure they say you shouldn’t make voice calls (but use of the in-flight phone is fine – so it’s not to prevent annoying passengers, it’s to protect a revenue stream). FaceTime (audio & video work). Streaming Netflix doesn’t. Many times the connectivity would…

    I switched to the iPhone 4. Then the iPhone 5s. My logic was always to buy the smallest size available because I would probably change it up every year or two. Let’s just say the attachment to the iPhone 4 “just working” made me afraid to change to anything new. With the iPhone 5s, 16GB is just not enough space. Everyone I know whom has a small sized iPhone 5 or 5s complains. It’s truly surprising it’s still on the lineup for the iPhone 6/6+. With retina apps, better quality photos & videos, media and just larger apps with bigger caches, 16GB is just too…

It is by far the project with the most advanced functionality, linked here in this post. I noticed that rather quickly, there was a PostgreSQL project, called pgosquery, based on Foreign Data Wrappers with a similar idea.

    As I was getting from the airport to my hotel in Columbus, Ohio, I took a taxi. Upon disembarking, it was time to pay and I noticed a credit card device hanging at the back of the passenger seat (this seems to be more common in the USA these days thankfully).  However, the driver told me not to swipe it there. He’d prefer to use Square as he would save on fees. So he plugged the Square dongle into his phone, swiped my card, I gave him his tip via the app, signed virtually, and the receipt automatically arrived via email. A much better workflow for me (since I don’t have to deal with a…

    Forest Research Institute Malaysia (FRIM) in Kuala Lumpur offers a nice location for a hike. I took the train to Kepong and then a taxi to the park. There is then a fairly long walk to the trail (from the entrance) but past interesting sites, so I found it worthwhile. You could probably get driven in further but you have to pay at the gate, so I think the taxi was reluctant to enter. My guess is this isn’t high on tourists list of attractions in KL (more an education and research center and resource for those living in KL).

    Loans to family members or friends can result in a different set of problems – such as falling out, or tension in the family. This  mainly happens because this kind of lending arrangement tend to be open-ended, where both parties do not set out an agreement on the timeline for repayments or include interest on the loan. You do not know when your money will be returned and this uncertainty can stress you out. It can be difficult to get the money back from your friend or family member because you worry that you may offend them if you repeatedly ask or remind them about it. Plus, once you…

  • Why Statements Like “Mont Kiara Is Oversupplied” Is Usually Baloney

    Every Malaysian and his chihuahua has got a opinion on where to invest in property. In fact, it’s hard for me to go to a mamak shop nowadays without overhearing conversations about “where is the next property hot area” and stories about someone’s sister-in-law made five figure commissions last month by flipping a high end condo. Indeed, property is one of those topics where every Malaysian thinks that he’s an expert! On the other hand, despite GoodPlace’s stature as, ahem, the #1 property blog in Malaysia (Google says it!), I’ve never claimed to be an…

    Our last feature on a recent visitor to GoodPlaceHQ (read it here if you have missed it) has received rather skeptical responses from our readers (although there was also a fair number who emailed in wanting to get in touch with her). I gave Melanie a call this morning to share with her the comments that I have received (you can read some of them at the bottom of that article), and here are her responses:- Is she setting up a property club? “No, I’m not a property club. Each buyer gets dealt with separately. I don’t poll capital either.” Is she a buyer’s agent?

    You can call me anything, Khai Yin, anything at all,” Melanie said with a laugh as she took a seat in front of me at my office. “But I am not a real estate investor, and so don’t call me one, especially if you happen to write about me in your blog.” I was slightly taken aback by her assertiveness in a way, but I was curious at the same time. “So let me get this straight. You buy properties to sell later at a profit. That puts you squarely within the definition of an investor, at least in the conventional sense.” She laughed again. “Well,…

    The Main Pagoda.Any visit to Penang would not be complete if you did not visit the world famous Buddhist Temple of “Supreme bliss” or more commonly known as the Kek Lok SI temple in Ayer itam. It is one on the most popular temples in Penang and is also considered to be the largest in South East Asia. It is not one building but rather a collection of buildings that have been added on, as the years go by. Construction of the original temple started in 1890 and was inspired by the chief monk of the Goddess of Mercy Temple at Pitt Street. Such was the renown of Kek Lok Si that it even gained…
