Where'd my money go? (2017)

Sunday, January 07, 2018

Dear readers,


Would like to share with you the ups an downs of my money spending that made my 2017 the best year of my life. Of course, not all are money well spent.

Annnnnnd it is not a long list at all, given I'm cheap and thrift af.



First on the list, well....technically it's an investment...but you gotta purchase in order to be IN the investment... 2017 was the year where O&G rebounded, thanks to the OPEC getting together to cut production. This has result in better oil prices... Long story short, it's been good investing in this sector.

For 2018, the OPEC production cut deal is set to end in November 2018 but an exit plan may be tabled in June if the market has rebalanced well. It also looks to stay strong in these few months and Saudi Arabia is looking to list it's O&G company Aramco publicly.

As a Malaysian investor, Hibiscus Petroleum was in my portfolio, making about 40% gain in the calendar year itself.


Shown above this the one year chart. This is taken from Bursa.

The company has zero debt, is producing in the North Sea pumping and selling Brent crude, is due to finalise the deal with Petronas Carigali and Shell on the North Sabah on an Enhanced Oil Recovery project. Current price of RM 0.95 and has a coverage from Public Bank Investment of a target price of RM 1.06. Company is also planning to announce free warrants, which is due to complete in First Half of 2018. If oil price remains steady, my personal opinion it could reach about RM 1.32-ish. But of course, do your own study investing in anything. The company website is here, and do check it out as their corporate governance is strong, they do webcast of their quarterly report in a Youtube video.👍




Next is the
Philips Multigroom series 7000 QG3380/16
Though I don't have a mad lumberjack beard, this beard trimmer has made maintaining my facial hair easier and more variable compared to just a shaver. Looking at all the extensions that are given, it makes grooming a little more fun



While it retails at RM 359 on Philips website, major electrical stores like Harvey Norman, SenQ and more usually offer them at about RM 269.... I got it a deal of RM 241 as I had some Lazada voucher....Do check it out. It's waterproof(but please don't charge and use it at the same time in a wet environment....Use brain and logic a bit la kays), takes 1 hour to charge for 1 hour usage, comes with a pouch.👍




This next one is the boo boo.
I can say I was a MANGSA MARKETING XD

Trapo Car Mat
It is easy to clean as advertised, cutting is perfect according to car model. It just works la. But for a lazy fucker like me, I wanna take out to clean also I malas...and the velcro that keeps it in place(which is good) makes it hard to take out as when one peels the car mat off, the vibration caused the dirt to vibrate, and some vibrated off the mat and onto the sides....again.... I'm a lazy fucker. If I asked the Bangla to vacuum it for me, I think he'll have a hard time taking it out, and placing it back nicely...Bangla won't waste time doing nicely, have you seen how they abuse car mats when they're vacuuming your car?

If your car is parked in your porch with close access to a powerpoint to vacuum it yourself, I'd say go for it... my card is parked out of my house.... so the only time I clean it is when I'm on a long break from work... like 5 weekdays off... even 3 weekend days off I won't do it. So if you're lazy like me, don't fucking get it.

Of course they're many other plus on getting this...but you go check it out on their site la ya. Price starts FROM RM 159.90...but with color lining addons and the food pad....total damage would be in the range of an additional RM 20-30++++++++

Happy 2018 guys! Thanks for reading.

Daniel's 2k17

Wednesday, December 20, 2017

Don't bet on religion, bet on God.

Religion is preached by men, different people have different interpretation of the Holy Text, may it be The Bible, The Koran and others... Look at the world today, everything is skewed AF. People are more sensitive. Doesn't seem like progress as I'm reaching 30. Same shyt day in day out.


Why did I start with such a vague confusing topic? Well, as bumpy as my 2017 can be...my belief in God and God Himself paved a relatively smooth year for me.

1) Made money in stocks
2) Gambling returns are steady
3) Longest relationship day after day :)
4) Additional income on the side throughout the year
5) No health scare

Years have passed and I've been praying less... perhaps God is not the center of my life, money is. Buuuutttt.....I believe God is there, and he has kept me centered. Well not directly in the sense I strike big in gambling or He TT me money.... but I think He keeps me calm. Good or bad, I shake less now... I'm more sturdy, knowing that we can only move forward.

Doesn't seem to make sense right?.... I know... I can't brain it myself...I'm just pouring my heart out. Normal Daniel will be shocked to see This Daniel talking about God that much. XD


Last I wrote something like this was in November 2014... Three years later, still haven't touch my 100k target. Damn it. And to make my life more complicated, I've birthed a plan of moving to Canada. A plan, conveyed to my gf(yes I have one now for almost 3 years) and she told her parents.... Dang it now I can't seem like the type that talk no walk. Please 2018... bring Canada closer within my reach!!! Can't live in this racial shithole any longer.



Another point I'd like to share why my 2017 seems better than other years...
It's the ultimate true sincerity of giving/landing a helping hand. As a kedekut bastard, I can say that 2017.... is the year I've gave the most in my whole life.... emotionally, monetary and time. And the more you give, the more you'll receive..... Hmm, starting to think that that line has some truth in it.

There's only one thing I hope to change in 2018.... my job.


As for investments, my petroleum stocks has been a roller coaster ride throughout the year....but it has been rewarding. As for the gas investment....still waiting(3years now :( ).


What I'm tryna say that... in life, you gotta believe in something/someone that would propel you forward.

If religion is in the center of your life, like how most Malaysians are....you either stay in one spot or go backwards most of the time (of course there are some who balance it well and progress)


God is a constant. He's always there for you.... No need going around reminding people. Let them figure it out themselves...and when they do, it's more precious.

Like breathing.... we breathe everyday... do we go around talking about it?... no.... (not the best comparison but fuck it)

The first time we heard it. Didn't expect the music to come from a chello....

Malaysian Election 2017?

Tuesday, January 10, 2017

Happy 2017 peeps!!!

Here we go again... we Malaysians may be closing in for the 14th General Election this year and things doesn't look like it's gonna change. Last I blogged about this was few months before GE13... Do read it here.

Daniel's thoughts on the para above and my old post:
Well, if things are really gonna change although we're hopeful for it... we should try to complain/whine less about it and take advantage of it. Let's look at one of the many isolated incident. Given that I invest/speculate in shares.... Did you know Tenaga Nasional went up to RM 12 from RM 7 during election year? BN "promised" on no tariff hike, but after winning.... Tenaga went on to increase tariff in December that year.... RM7-RM12.... that's almost 100%, in just the span of April-December 2013. I think there were many who almost doubled their portfolio that year. Tenaga is just one of the many government related share that bull-ed quite well after the election, I'm just picking on Tenaga...coz hey...everyone knows Tenaga right?




Moving on...


Malaysia has been "almost" 50:50 in its government since the political tsunami back in 2009... Where they blamed it all on the Chinese....this la that la.... Well Since then, Selangor and Penang are states that only BN can think of at night, like a teenage boy fapping to the girl of his dreams. Both coalition has it's pros and cons over the years. I think PR has it's fair share of stupidity and that BN has its glimmer of hope every once in a awhile.

Here are things I agree on over the years:
BN: Goods & Services Tax (GST) or Cukai Barangan & Perkhidmatan (CBP). Starting at 6% was a killer though but I believe this is a progressive tax, I just don't like how the government is not transparent on how they spend the GST collection. RM 50 billion collected, but government still goyah no money.... you know I know la. But we need this tax as we are taxing tourist,expats and immigrants who are spending.... that's good revenue for the government, can't deny that. People should see how expats are spending here....damn. And the Opposition has to stop on this GST abolishment crap fight, FUCK, instead of fighting for abolishment of GST, why not pitch on how you'd use the funds better if and when you're in power, or perhaps lowering the percentage point or something.

BN: Subsidy removal for sugar, cooking oil, flour, petrol. Removal of subsidy is good to let free market kick in. But sadly our free market in Malaysia are mostly "orang miskin"...therefore government have to go regulate prices for traders. I think that's a fucking dick move, Government jimat on subsidy payout but don't allow trader to increase price.... Traders are being BUTTFUCKED big time by the government. And speaking of the float in petrol price, till not there's no clear and transparent mechanism of the tax being applied before the final pump price we see every month. I'd vote BN if they're transparent and clean about GST Collection and petrol price mechanism. And the sugar subsidy removal... You know what, wanna do something, just do it... don't give some fucking lame excuse saying....ooooo for the benefit of the rakyat coz we're not healthy... HEY, Government raised ciggy price almost 2x now.... people still smoke what...what cock you talking?

BN: BR1M... well many think it is a bribe to the rakyat... it really isn't, well that's my unpopular opinion. If it is, it is a bad one coz non BN voters are getting it and still voting the other side. It is "redistribution of wealth" tool, where only certain quarters within a certain income bracket gets it. I't still not perfect as the redistribution is low and the middle class being stranded because they're not entitled. Example: instead of petrol subsidy which EVERYONE enjoys (rich,super-rich,expats,immigrants)... now at the very least the poorer are compensated and non-deserving quarters don't get the "subsidy" But the fact that BN has fucked up the economy for everyone, the amount that is distributed via BR1M is a mockery to its people. Political instability has rendered the currency useless and that prices for lots of stuff has increased. Thanks Najib. THANKS ALOT

PR: Many don't know that actually Selangor and Penang has lots of perks/rebates for its citizen... One just have to go find out about it via your nearest ADUN. Like Selangor, there's a small sum of money that the State Government gives if a family member passes away, to help with the cost. There's even scholarship programs and much more.... Oh well.... coz Pakatan holding the two richest state in the country... Mentally rich to put BN on their toes

PR: I like that I see handicap parkings being allocated around Selangor... free buses for the rakyat. It's good to see money is being used for the rakyat... Something concrete that you can see everyday.

Here are things I don't agree on over the years:

BN: Barbaric, racist, stupid statements from the cabinet... Like WTF are you guys made of?

BN: 1MDB....dah kena tipu semua orang Malaysia.

BN: Ministers talking shyt about balik kampung, tanam sayur sendiri, work 2-3 jobs. It shows the level of competency of the people that "we" have "put" in office... down right sad to the bone

BN: Shyt promises on not increasing electric tariff and to reduce toll rates.... janji kotek la... janji janji. FUCK now GST collect so much, don't have to rely on Petronas d kan? don't rely on toll collection also la. Naik GST 1% and abolish toll pun I think it's viable. But hey.... duit mana boleh cukup kan?

BN & PR: Redneck barbaric hooligan blind supporters of both parties who cannot brain what a middle ground is or being the devil's advocate... To them... it's either 0 or 1..... with me or against me. It shows how immature the people are, we can always agree to disagree and admit there are some things that the opposing side is doing right. You so hot support the party for what, dapat duit ka? (maybe kut...or dapat project...or t-shirt free)... Don't support the politicians, support the idea that stands right. People come and go.

PR: Picking the wrong fights with BN to prove their incompetence....jeez, is the agenda the rakyat or just freeing Anwar... and speaking of Anwar, fuck, I never liked that we tried to stick his feet into Selangor via the "Kajang Move". I think that the opposition has to be more visual in their campaigning towards the rakyat. Don't just print posters or talk about it, don't be lazy, get a marker and explain stuffs on the white board as many people are the visual type. Address the very basic of BN's shyt...especially the recent comment made by Irwan Serigar on petrol pump price and his inability to do dollar to dollar comparison.... man Serigar was talking shyt

PR: The Selangor MB power struggle... like what's up with that. This only show that all politicians are the same, fighting or their own gain instead for the rakyat. Changing MBI to DEIG, Anwar in the mix, Azmin out for blood for the top post.

Mahathir: Well he should just rest... Personally I don't think he's doing much good holding hands with Pakatan Harapan, as he had his fair share of controversy back in his days.




I may have lots more on my mind... but I guess this will do for now =P
I'll end with this.
