Rainbow  RE: France
Good morning value buddies.
Recently, you heard a lot of my driving adventures.
Really?
You asked me?
How can I meet so many close *accidents*?

Here is another one in France.
(btw, French President François Hollande 
just visited Singapore and Indonesia 2 days ago)


Ai yo, another business trip.
L'Isle-d'Abeau - a small town 30km south of Lyon 里昂.

Most people not aware that Lyon is France's 3rd largest city after Paris and Marseilles.

I choose to stay in Lyon instead of L'Isle-d'Abeau for obvious reason.
So, early morning, I had to drive 30km from Lyon to L'Isle-d'Abeau.

And, in one of the faithful day, I was on the A43.
Autoroute A43 goes directly into Italy.

[Image: 1024px-S%C3%A9paration_A430_%26_A43.JPG]

Although it was early in the morning, the Sun already raise up.
The road is clear and not much traffics.
I'm at the fastest lane with a speed > 100km/h.

All clear and I remember wearing a happy smile too.

Then, suddenly, the road slope down gently,
and everything turns into white color.

Everything! Everything I saw is white.
Everything become slow motion (sounds familiar?)
Silent and I'm engulf by white cloud.

Complete silent.

Instinctively, I hold on tight on my steering.
My foot remains still on the gas pedal.
100% focus on my steering wheel and my accelerator.
100% constant.
Stable, steady, steady.

I'm ready,
for anything,
that could happen.


Nothing happened.
Steady, steady.
I anticipated.
Nothing happen.


And, suddenly, like magic,
all the sight, sound and colors come back to normal.

I'm on A43 again.

Thanks god. 
I survived.

Lucky lucky.
Happy happy.

Let's celebrate:


Heart Love Compassion

Rainbow  Lavender 薰衣草 லாவெண்டர்
Lavender 薰衣草 லாவெண்டர்

My colleague says that we need to get going as later the traffic will be bad.

I look at my watch and it says Friday 4pm.

Packed, walk downstairs and step out of the office,
my colleague turn around and locked the main door.

Then, he pointed to a plant in a pot and ask me:
"You know what is this?"

I shake my head and he plunk out a small leave and grind it with his fingers (and thumb).

Then, he place the mess for me to smelt.

"You know this?", he asked again.

I nod my head.
..............................................It's Lavender.

Life is like the stock market.
Some days you're up.
Some days you're down.
And some days, you feel like something the bull left behind - Paul Wall

Meteoroid growth for past 12 months grinned to a halt.

My confession (100% sold recently within a short timeframe):
1. OKP - 100% sold - sweet, no patient to wait for more gain. sad
2. Chuan Hup - 100% sold - bitter, waited for so long and really stretch my patient to the limit. sad
3. KepCorp - 100% sold - sweet, no eye to see the recovery of O&G. happy that I made the decision to get out.
4. SSE - 100% sold - sweet, tracking error does not make sense to hold on. happy to learn something new.
5. UOL - 100% sold - sweet, too many wonderful property stocks to choose. happy to make a switch to another better ideas.

We've thrown apart these pieces
We've thrown apart these pieces
So, I don't go home
Tell me love, tell me love

Rainbow  break down
touch down at Nice.

nice landing with the famous Mediterranean Sea 地中海 along the run way.

blue sky, deep blue sea, perfect turquoise color 绿松石

picked up my car

something strange

the girl told me that my petrol is not fully filled

i don't have to fill up before returning my car

strange

i found my car still wet (after wash)

it's a easy 1.5 hours drive to Aix

relax

petrol station

top up to full tank and that's a mistake

the car lost power

the engine is getting rough

i paid at the toll but my car refuse to start

i need you now......



Picture perfect memories scattered all around the floor.
Reaching for the phone 'cause I can't fight it any more.
And I wonder if I ever cross your mind?
For me it happens all the time.
感恩

Rainbow  Cogratulation to Tony's wedding at Cote D'Azur
Good morning valuebuddies.
This morning, we wake up to the stories of AirAsia CEO Tony wed a south korean girl Chole  in Cote D'Azure.

[Image: uc?id=0B_rJrOUj766BQUwzMzZhVHBCVHM]

Driving from Aix to Cote D'Azur is quite easy.
Merely 2 hours and will hit the cliff that oversee Cote D'Azur.

Turquoise blue.
If the sky is blue then deep blue.

$785 Air France to Vienna
Mont Saint Michel also known as Mont Saint Michael in English:


Other than the Medieval castle, 
the tides that swallow the only road to transform the castle to an island,
plus the quicksand outside the castle wall is a must visit too.

A easy drive from Rouen or TVG from Paris,
up to you.

Going to France, any valuebuddies?



9 Sept 2018: Apple says new China tariffs will raise prices for some products

... such as the Apple Watch and AirPods headphones.  
The MAc mini desktop computer, Apple Pencil stylus accessory for iPads, various chargers and adapters, 
as well as tooling equipment used to manufacture and design some products in the US will also be affected.

Apple, in its letter, said: "Our concern with these tariffs is that the US will be hardest hit,
and that will result in lower US growth and competitiveness and higher prices for US consumers."

The tariffs would be "show up as a tax on US consumers" and 
"increase the cost of Apple products that our customers have come to rely on in their daily lives."

Intel Corp, the world's second largest chipmaker, weighed in supporting Apple's opposition to the tariffs and broadening the argument.
"We are puzzled as to why the Administration may be using tariffs in part to re-engineer 
global ICT (information, communication and technology) supply chains that have served US companies so well," Intel said in a letter.

But Mr Trump thinks otherwise, tweeting yesterday: 
"Apple prices may increase because of the massive Tariffs we may be imposing on China - 
but there is an easy solution where there would be ZERO tax, and indeed a tax incentive:
Make your products in the United States instead of China."


Question:
How will your favourite company react to:
1. Increasing US$
2. Increasing interest rate
3. Increasing consumer price 

I think Micro Mechanics management already know what to do.
Chris articulated this back in 2012:
“Manufacturers in the U.S. have to understand that this is a global business, 
and that their true strength lies in the process engineering of challenging part applications.
With manufacturing facilities throughout Asia, we see our complex, low-volume part production
as the perfect opportunity for us to demonstrate our engineering expertise, 
and successfully and competitively produce manufactured components here in the U.S.,”
