It’s Friday and time to take stock, everything happening around the markets and everything else that is not.
I spent a few days, earlier this week, at home in self imposed regiment to experience what life would be like if I stopped work. I must say it was an exceedingly liberating time for me with none of the work encumbrances that I have come to loath with increasing intensity these days.

With less time for noise, there is more time to immerse yourself in the news that make investors tick. For I have come to realise that not everyone comes from a trading environment and the endless bombardment of your senses and nerves in a number crunching, info digesting frenzy. Life is not about reading and hearing then reacting all the time. Sometimes, it pays to do nothing !

Thus I will be sharing these interesting finds here, hopefully daily, of the warped, weird and wonderful world in which we live in where orang utans read Jane Austen , celebrating World Toilet Day on 19 Nov and Singaporeans can’t cry.
