“THE MOST IMPORTANT THING” photography exhibition – World Refugee Day 2013, KL Sentral Station, 22 June 2013
Join us for World Refugee Day at the KL Sentral Station, on Saturday, 22 June 2013 at 10.00am – 4.00pm.
We will be launching our new photo exhibition entitled “The Most Important Thing”, photographed by photographer Ted Adnan aka Ted Adnan Seorang VisualArtist.
We spoke to refugees to ask them what did they bring with them when they fled their countries? Their stories are powerful, because their resilience is obvious. Yet also touching, because most of them know they will never have their old lives again.
Other highlights: Refugee art bazaar and performances.
Admission is free!

“The poor don’t invest because they don’t have money to invest. They spend all their money and forget about investments. The funny thing is though, although they have no money to invest, they have money to gamble. They have money to buy lottery, they have money to buy 4D and 3D, go to Genting and gamble a few thousand Ringgit, travel with Star Cruise, drink alcohol and smoke.”, shared Peter Lim, the investment teacher behind Bursa Method – stock investment online course based on value investing.
For all these money-burning activities, the poor have money. When it comes to investing, they have no money. I’m telling you these from my family’s experience.
Now, the middle class is actually where most people you see or meet are. The middle class say, “Investing is Risky.” Every time people say investing is risky, they actually mean that speculating or gambling is risky. Most people cannot differentiate between speculating and investing.
Understanding about the difference between investing and speculating is very important. If you still cannot differentiate, then just follow my mother’s simple definition. My mother would say, “Anything that can make money and can lose money is gambling or speculating.”
Investing, if you do it the right way, you cannot lose money. This doesn’t mean that you never lose money, but as a whole you cannot lose money. Just like in a casino. If you are a casino owner, you may lose at individual rounds, but as a whole if you combine all the tables and bets, you cannot lose.
As for the rich, instead of saying, “Investing is risky,” the rich will say, “Not investing is risky.” Why do you think the rich would say so?
Inflation eats our money away. If you don’t invest, your money will be eaten by inflation.
So, why is not investing risky? Because if you don’t invest, your money will be in your savings account, or FD, or EPF where you look for all the guaranteed things and so forth, plus all your money will be eaten by inflation.
Secondly, you face another risk which is “you don’t have enough money” risk – the risk of having not enough money. You don’t have enough money for your kids’ education, not enough for your retirement, maybe not enough for your parents’ hospital bills in the future and maybe your own hospital bills in the future as well.
If you talk about insurance, the insurance might be so costly that you could barely afford to pay for it unless you plan to work for life. Even if you plan to work for life, you still face another risk: Whether people will still hire you when you’re old, and whether you can still work or not when you’re old. In that sense, even if you don’t invest you are facing many risks, which is why, to the rich, not investing is also a risk.
I realized recently that another risk of not investing is that your money will grow too slowly. What if got you into an illness and cannot work anymore? When you cannot work anymore, all your financial goals are not met, and you have financial liabilities.
So, investing actually expedites financial security if you do it the right way. Not speculating or gambling – but Investing.

Apple recently announced iOS7 and one of the many features in the OS overhaul is the use of a cards interface and multitasking. To all webOS users past and present, that is not new at all, and is one of the beloved features of webOS. Swiping up an app to close it, and easily switching between running apps in the cards system was simply awesome.
Now that webOS has been put to open source pasture, we see this yet again. Previously Blackberry took a page out of webOS cards and gestures with BB10, and now Apple does the same.
As Steve Jobs said, “Good artists copy, great artists steal”.

iOS7 Cards and Multitasking – Deja Vu
Press Statement by the Chief Minister of Penang Lim Guan Eng In Komtar, George Town on 15 June 2013
The Penang state government lauds the unique achievement of Malaysian author Tan Twan Eng for becoming the first writer outside United Kingdom to win the Walter Scott Prize, which honours historical fiction writers. Tan won £25,000 for his post-World War Two novel, “The Garden of Evening Mists”.
Tan was invited two years in a row for the George Town Literary Festival to not only promote book reading through famous writers but also celebrate successful Penang-born authors. Penang has once again displayed its full array of world-class talents not just in science and technology but also in art, heritage and literature.
What is remarkable about Tan’s achievements is that he succeeded on his own without any government support. What is sad is that Tan had to leave Malaysia for a foreign country to gain both recognition and success. Hopefully Tan’s success will help to spur more writers and also the Federal government to set up a mechanism that encourages budding writers both technically as well as financially.
Penang state government will be celebrating book reading and writing at both the George Town Heritage Fest held now until 8 July and the George Town Literary Festival planned at the end of this year.

Najib’s denial syndrome claiming that he only lost in the “war of perception” in 13GE will condemn his “national reconciliation” plan to failure and a recipe for the resounding defeat of UMNO/BN in the 14GE
Call on Najib to put his War on Crime as top Cabinet agenda on Wednesday to ensure the police are not totally helpless in the latest rampage by criminals, including new-fangled mass armed robbery of owners/customers of restaurants and eateries
Police should not be super-efficient to arrest peaceful Malaysians, including women and child while utterly helpless at worsening crime situation with new fear among Malaysians – not safe eating out in restaurants and public eateries
