...Don't limit your challenges, challenge your limits!

Little Nick has suddenly started talking non-stop from morning till night. It started a few months back with him repeating what he hears people saying, but now he can participate in full conversations and it can be quite fun.
He enjoys reading and learning new things. He has learnt almost half the alphabets and has even started counting. It's been a month since he has started going to Sunday School and he seems to enjoy his class but not the singing.
He spends less time watching Barney, The-Wheels-On-The-Bus and Sesame Street now, but would rather spend time reading his books and playing with his toys which is good. It amazes me how he even learnt by himself how to play pretense like setting up his own house or office. He will ride his bicycle or drive his car and park it outside his pretense office, and then he would go into his 'office' and do what he calls as 'work'
At age 38 I was woken up to the reality that at the rate I was moving in growing my wealth, retirement would not be what I desired. My three kids were growing fast and the cost of a good education was another burden I didn't have an answer to.
That was until I was introduced to value investing. In a short 7 months (Mar - Sep 2016) I made over 20% returns from investing in value stocks on the KLSE, while in the same period the KLCI was down 2% and the market generally volatile.
I've decided to start this blog with the hope of sharing what I learn as I journey along this pathway towards financial freedom with the hope that it would be an encouragement and help to my fellow Malaysians in planning and starting your own journey towards financial freedom.
