Went to an interesting Getai

Few nights ago went to a wonderful Getai. Getai is always a special part of our culture.

It always has a special place in my heart, through the memorable years, which kindled many emotions.

Over the years the quality of the voices had improved. Some has a following in their facebook accounts.

Since young every year, we look forward to listen to our favourite songs and hear them crack some jokes.

Years ago we would climbed up the stages to watch the performers closer, as a result some stages collapsed under the weight.

Nowadays  many singers started young, they has many years of experience and their voices are powerful.

Most of the song they sing cater for the older generations. Apparently can be observed in the crowds.

I wander will they innovate and bring it to the next level. Singapore born http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vanessa-Mae innovated and made a huge success out of traditional musical instrument.

Photo show a singer belting out one of my favourite songs:昨夜星辰 which she sing very well.

Is investing an art or a science?

I had been investing in stocks for 23 years since 1990 and had gone through numerous cycles of the market.

I agreed with Peter Lynch that investing is an art more than a science. He said if it is a science accountants will be the richest persons.

Markets were driven  by fear and greed. Had it worst stocks were driven to ridiculous level inconsistent with its fundamentals. 

I went to many AGM and EGM to talk to market players to see what is really written in the annual reports.

Fundamentally sound stock were driven ridiculously cheap to 8 cts  in 1997 crash e.g. Sincere Watch had since been taken over at $2.

Jade Tech  which is a heavily lost making stock were driven from 2 ct to around 50 cts.

I had been collecting the M'sian and S'pore market  40 years ofdata.

So if a person can master and forecast the cycle of the market, can do well in stocks. 

Warren Buffett the greatest investor said he couldn't predictshort termsmarket directions.

The incredible class reunion after leaving school 35 years.

After I left UATS in 1976 for 35 years, we hold a class reunion, not my sec 4 class but my neighbor class $4-4, I was in E4-2.

I met Lee Song at Bugis after many years, which I lost contact with him. We used to stayed in the neighborhood area. He asked me to come to his home for the class reunion, which his class E4-4 had been holding every year.

My class class E4-2 had since stopped holding class reunions for many years.

At Lee Song home which he invited the lion dance troupe to his home to perform.

I met back some of the classmates where we  where split into different classes  from  sec 2 going into sec 3 - arts, metalwork, electronic & woodwork class etc.

I was in the arts class, I was not qualified to go into the technical classes by one points. Because I never passed up  2 technical projects for evaluations to the teacher.

I reached there around 1pm started our dailogues in his room around at 2, some brought their wives there one brought his mistress. Many of them hair growing white.

Mike is my classmate since 1967 still in contact, came around 3pm something and brought his swedish wife and his son around 1 year old.

Maybe Xiang Yun the mediacorp actress is our  classmate it is possible that 3 us were in the same school or class?

We adjourned and dailogued outside the house. Lee Song kept bringing food - crackers which he specially brought from M'sia, abalones and beer to treat us.

Later the brother of Henry Tan our schoolmate who invented the thumbdrive and other patents came, I had a brief dailogue with him and  called it a day.

What an incredible karmic  & mystical reunion after 35 years, for our classmates from different classes  to come together again.

Actress Xiang Yun of Mediacorp




 Xiang Yun was the first batch of artistes at  the then Singapore Broadcasting Corp. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Xiang_Yun

We got something in common, I heard that she help out her mom's drinks stall at certain primary school where I used to studied there.

She and me were born in the the same year and same day but not the same month.

I used to go to Macpherson CC almost every night, where she stayed just across the road,  and the coffee stall at Circuit Road, where I used to have dialogues with my friends every night and watch TV there.

I had emailed her, on and off she did replied me on numerous occasions. There were possibility  we were classmates.

I seen her 2 times, she was interviewing a person, when I was performing in the National Day Parade and another time I saw her at Bugis I want to approach her, but somehow never had the courage to.

I saw many artistes came and gone at Mediacorp.  Against all odds she still around, she must have some special qualities that enable let her stay in a not so easy industry for so long.

I wonder what are the secrets of her success, she was one of the earliest pioneer in Singapore film industry after 27 years she still consistently featured in many shows and received many awards.

I asked her which she replied in chinese; living a life silently, low key, struggle for life, and having a meaningful and wonderful life with others.

One of this day will we the have the karma to meet the 3rd time? If so she will be the second earliest schoolmates still in contact? One of primary one classmate Mike, we were still in contact.
