Kelisa facelift to Daihatsu Gino vs Austin mini

Kelisa vs Gino vs Mini that's all different model but are they comparable? First we need to differential what's what.

Austin mini is by (Austin and Morris) a british company later succeeded by BMW. Gino on the other hand is by Japan company Daihatsu and lastly Kelisa is by Malaysia company. Why Kelisa is under the comparison is because there is a 1:1 facelift to the Daihatsu Gino.

The psychology of persuasion - Robert B Cialdini Book Review

S Benjamin recommended one book by Robert B Caildini and said that a lots of local politician are using this as an entry material to make people listen, comply and persuade people to do things their way. Be it if you use in ethically as a social calling or as a tool to manipulate, choice it up to you. But a lot of salesman had benefited from the simple 6 rules of persuading people to buy and it was highly recommended to read. So the condense 6 points of influence are as such:

Pinnacle notes series 9 & 10 poster misleding

They say that when they want to show you to hell, they will feed you with sweet so that you will be tempted. And when they want to show you to heaven, they will give you pain so that you can build your resistant. This is somewhat a Chinese direct translation.


Now lets take a look at this advertorial poster from the infamous pinnacle notes saga. What is the mood of the picture? How do you feel about it? Does this picture gives you a very positive feeling about it? The boy looks very cuddly and with the toy bear and toy bull in this arm... Wait! Doesn't it resemble something? Right. Isn't he trying to imply that he is both happy when the market is having a bullish or bearish market? If you like me have the good feeling about this poster, in that time we would both became the victim of the fallen investment. 

This is as bad as a misrepresented poster can go. Take a look at the fine print below at point number 2 it say that the notes are not principle guaranteed. This might be the reason why we are studying M5 and M9 and almost a lot of our client nowadays question us about how much is the principle guaranteed. We cannot fault them for being too careful after this event.


Just attended the CHFC course and study on some basic knowledge on financial planning. The true financial planning and not those you find standing at roadshow selling the endowment products.

One case study points to the pinnacle notes series 9 & 10, which make a lot of investor whom invested in the Morgan Stanley to lose almost all their investment values. Only after many years of legal fighting that the investor now can recover up to 28% of the defaulted notes.

Am I that ugly?

Today at Yishun shop, we were chatting with the renovation contractor on some random topic. About JB, KL, drugs, girls and all the ah beng's talk. It was so bored me to death and I haven't sleep for the whole night.

Suddenly he mentioned that in JB where those doing illegal business earn so much money. Even "people as ugly as me" can find a hot girl. Now wait....

In a grp of me jiayi and himself an uncle, he need to quote that even people as ugly as me gets a GF. I have no problem that anyone is getting a GF, I am even fine that ugly people get a GF, but he use quote like "people as ugly as me", that I have a problem. Big problem. Why?!?!? Now i became the benchmark of ugly????

Being self awareness, I know that I may not pass of as handsome but am I to the point of being ugly. Don't worry it didn't hurt my feeling, partly because I am strong, I don't care what other people thinks of me and I really don't mind being not handsome. But I love myself and I love my face and appearance. That is not one thing that I like to change about myself. And I seriously don't think I am ugly, even if you all might think I am. Because I trust my judgement. Not because a lot of people think I am ugly then I am ugly. I always have a strong opinion and I tend to stand by my perspective. People know me know I am rooted on my faith and belief.

By the way, I love how my face looks and I don't mind the scar and marks or holes per said to my face. It the flaw that install great resistance and strong mentality to sarcasm. I makes me strong and focus on inter growth rather than external growth. No many people can withstand the demeaning comment, some people might even be sducidal.

Ironically few days ago, I only brought one poster on Marilyn Monroe
Like Marilyn Monroe and Cindy Crawford have their mole (imperfection) at the "right" place where that's the feature they are known off. If the imperfect mole wasn't there, they might not be as popular. So all ourselves inclusive of flaws and uniqueness craft us to be where we are standing right now. Successful or not, one side. At least we are healthy or we are at least alive to be reading this. We should contented.

I owe my face. I reconcile it. The the beauty of imperfection makes perfection. Like 断臂维纳斯 venus de milo whom is famous for its imperfection. May you fully finds content from within yourself may you free yourself of all misery. I am always grateful and contented hence I am always a happy person :) The only person that can bring you down is yourself if you allow them to.

Its not easy to be in causal relationship

I hate to have to know a person, get close and then due to some reason have to leave, filter, block them. Now finding out they block me because of me being a douchebag its not a good feeling. 

I am a kind person and i do love the people around me. I don't want to hurt anyone or disappoint anyone whom love me. But why relationship are now becoming so complicated? 

Person whom i love don't love me. People whom i don't love, love me. Its not like i am a player or womenizer? People see me this way because i usually do not try to conceal my true self. I need companion and you have to understand. Being single i have no one to answer to. So don't judge me. I can be very devoted in a relationship. I want to. But i am being single most of the time. People whom i stay devoted don't give me a fuck. 

You need to be quite strong and at the same time heartless to be in a causual relationship. Believe me. When being ditched and ditching people I get sad both ways. It hurts to hurt people whom like you. 

Tyty - thanks for taking care of me.

Kelisa to gino conversion at Skudai


Finally got chance to take xiao bai go JB skudai to do the gino body kit. Xiao bai the backside got knocked. Was contemplating for so long if i would want to change the gino body kit. Because due to the change of headlight which is against police law in singapore. I put back a few time. Last night went with WF and XX to KSL to stay over. Remember a lot PL memories. 


Sit at coffee shop for so many hour waiting for them to installation. The kit front and back cost $1300 riggit. + chrome handle ($150) + chrome mirror ($150) + gino original steerling wheel ($100) + installtion ($100). At the end got it all at $1500 riggit. 

The shop is 66 Autoparts
No 36 Jalan Palas 5 Taman Teratai Skudai JB. 15km away from woodlands causeway. They sell a lot of kei car from Japan scrap yard. For gino convention your best bet is to try this shop. 


See my roof rack on the top of my car. I was being laugh by so many people. Making fun of my rack say i wanna put luggage on top is it. Today it show its true power. First, at Skudai so many people enquiry about my rack and ask me where i buy la. How much la. And am i will to sell. Even the shop pwner also ask plea me to sell it to him. He is so desperate of this limited out of stock rack from Japan that he is willing to exchange $1500 riggit which isnall my cost of the whole day with just the rack itself. I didnt take the bait. 

Seondly. We went Taman sentosa so many time like 3 times. Even the wanton mee waiter whistle at me seeing my roof rack regonisating me. Lol. It must have been so standing out. 


Well. Its late so i didnt have time to take a full body shot properly. Just a simple one where i parked my vehicle inside carpark. 

Lastly i put some nice other ppl gino for u to see.

101次求婚


Today i watched this movie the second time. Huang Bo is a very good mainland actor, he is not considered to be the super handsome category but he is charming and know how to speak and funny also. This movie is about how a 屌丝 final win the heart of the very gogerous lady 林志林. By the way I like this song due to when I was younger and when the J pop had not even popular, this song was from Japanese boy band Chage & Aska "Say Yes". Below I show you the original one.

Danang and HCM trip 2016

The first day travelling from Singapore to Danan is hectic. Our flight at Changi is at 1:15pm. Reached HCM at 3pm and the tranfer flight to Danang was delayed 2+ hour have to loiter around then reach Danang at 7+. The worst part of this trip i guess is the crumblesome travelling. Chris and his group booked a villa while I stayed at a small hotel beside their villa.The first night seafood was not meeting my standard, couldn't get to eat flower crab as i had been planning to. One of the disappointing meal I had in Vietnam.


The 8 pax from left to right, Candy, Jack, Jerry, Chris, Gary, Joyce, Limin and Andrea plus Uncle Kelvin and his companion. These guys were great, able to tolerate my nonsense trash talk. No one can take me seriously ever. I have a talk cock face. 


Day 2 morning We booked a tour to some of the famous landmark for 4 millions dong. ($250sgd) for 8 pacs including tips and lunch which is very cheap I guess. 


Famous mable factory where they produce different sculpture. I took the one and only figure i love. Not alot of people know that this is 断臂威尼斯。It symblised flawlessness in imperfection. Its meant a lot to me in my life and teaching me to deal with imperfection :)



Caves of hell and heaven. Its very common of caves and hills to be crafted with life looking sculpure. 



A panaroma view at the top of the heavenly cave. We got to the top finally. 


One of the very famous place is the guanyima. 


With guanyima blessing us in this shot. 2017 is going to be great!



Some group shot thru the day. 


Really need to give a big thanks to Andrian and Angeline. This couple had been providing the pack with food. They shop, buy, prepare and cook for us. Korean style. 



Its really nice and very fulfilling. Very authentic and we couldn't asked for more. Its something bar bar one. Something like mee thai bak. Along the line. LoL


Day 3 we started off with a home cook 担担面。淡淡面。Those at the villa helped us to cook breakfast. 


They brought me to tour the world longest cable car which is in Danang and they trolled me that the ride was 23km long and will take 25minutes to reach between points. I believed. Actually its only 6km apart but still they are the world longest just not 23km. Why i was so easily cheated? Look at this!



Due to raining heavily at Banahills. Most of the activities are cancelled and we had to be forced to confine inside a indoor theme park. Thise PG13 rides. Very no kick. 


At night we all gathered into the villa and count down for 2017. Me and WF steamed live on FB.

By the way, I will be going to Da Nang and HCM end Dec and I will be alone in the hotel and hope I can complete my books and update my old blog post.


Just went to plan for year 2017 sales target. Congrats to Julian as being the 1 million dollar agency. And a great growth from 30 plus to 70 plus strength within 1 year. That's some great achievement by all the leaders and FC. We raise from a small humble agency to the top 10 in the whole GE. I hope that I can be doing better to contribute to the success of the team. Very sad, I have not make it to this year achiever or convention. Meaning sales are not great, I can sad poor by my standard. But I am not giving up, slowly.

Make American great again


"You are fired." This is what Trump had said to Hillary on Nov 8th 2016. He won the freak out election over Hillary Clinton with whom had over 30 years of office experience. I was ecstatic. This is actually the first time over my past 10 years where a politician that I love actually won an election. Referring to Singapore's election where my vote always goes out to the opposition and it not the opposition candidates, but my fellow people who vote that fails me time after time.

Make America great again, I wish. America used to be a big power decades back, and the rise of the China superpower had tilted the world's equilibrium.
