A Weekโ€™s Wrap-Up

Yep, I disappeared into the busy hive of Damansara Uptown again last week. ๐Ÿ™‚ Here’s last week’s wrap up:-

Wednesday

Hmm… what brings me here to Klang? I never really liked going to Klang, even though both my parents originated from this place. It gives me a “dull” mood every time I come here for as long as I can remember.

However, the trip was inevitable as I had to have my will written. A lot of my friends gave me the surprise look when I told them about it. I often heard comments like “you’re still young” “don’t be negative” “why are you planning so early when you can do it later” etc.

But here’s the thing: the moment you begin accumulating some wealth, assets, properties, etc. it’s already time you should have your will written. And all the more if you are shouldering responsibilities for the people you are taking care of.

I know many people are not comfortable discussing the “what if”s where death is concerned – much less actually think and act about it. But I’m not saying we should all be pessimistic but practical.

Let’s face it: anything can happen to any one of us – and death does not recognize discrimination in age, gender, religion, social status, etc. and there’s this saying that “everyone is equal under the grass“. It can’t get any truer than that!

Personally, I don’t have my brains on legal matters so the evening was very educational even though it was only a couple of hours of meeting with the Financial Planner I was recommended to. I’ve also learned that if one doesn’t have any specific will in place in the event of death, there will be a default quota on your wealth to be distributed among your spouse, children, parents, and *sigh* government.

Well, since I have no spouse and children (yet)… the will was custom written. ๐Ÿ™‚ The good thing is that the will can always be updated every few years depending on the growth of my business, assets, properties, etc. and even cover residue entities (meaning what you foresee to accumulate in the near future).

Thursday

I can’t bring myself to say this, but Victor was wiping the floor with me in Quake III Arena.

Fortunately, the cyber cafe torment was cut short when Victor had to leave to watch a Football game with his other friends (don’t boo me but watching 22 other guys chasing after a ball on TV isn’t my idea of amusement). ๐Ÿ˜›

And what do you know? Matty Matt of Internet Money Blog decided to meet up with me in person! ๐Ÿ™‚ I finally found someone with stamina, too – we talked… and walked all the way from SS2 to Damansara Uptown, and then some. ๐Ÿ™‚

Very smart and interesting discussion with Internet Marketing ideas and strategies, as Matt was promising me instant riches. ๐Ÿ˜› ๐Ÿ™‚ *hee hee hee!*

As a result from the super long talk (starting 10:30 PM through 3:30 in the morning), I spent the most of the next day in K.O. mode.

Saturday

Since I will be taking off to Johor Bahru the next day, and was kind of lethargic from PLRGold PLRGold PLR-whatever JV Recruitment drive and pre-launch, I decided to take off the entire weekend and have some fun… like heading to 1Utama.

And playing Settlers of Catan with Khai, Yuenn and Fuu Fuu.

Wrap-up ends here! ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. Yo Ed,

    “Promising” is a too strong a word. So fast giving me pressure already. I think “working together” is the right word. hehehe.

    Nice avatar! Looks like a Yahoo avatar. Kudos to Hazell for such a fantastic job.

  2. dude. Your short commentary on will-making was one of the best things I’ve read on a blog this week.

    Also, nice to see VictorT is in action.

  3. Matt,

    Don’t say that. I’m counting on you to make me wealthier. ๐Ÿ˜‰ LOL! Yes the avatar was done in Yahoo! Messenger, beats Skype’s avatar features anytime.

    Wai King,

    Nice to see you around again! albeit online. Hmm… don’t know what blogs you’ve been reading but thanks for the compliment! ๐Ÿ˜‰ I trust things are great for you in Sydney.
