The University Break is over, and Exciting events are awaiting!

paperback-small.jpgpaperback-medium.jpgpaperback-large.jpgHi, my fellow bloggers and dear visitors,

My school break is over and I am going back to the busy and exciting school life again!!! Got tonnes of preparation work to do as I have a few mid-term tests coming soon. Currently I  am busy helping a publisher proofread their typeout and identify the typo errors and any alignment mistakes in the material. The material sent to me is very thick, it has taken me more than 2 weeks to finish it and yet I  still have one chapter to go.

Today I received an email from a fellow university friend, Calvin, he invites me to join a hand on workshop on internet marketing. I have signed up and am waiting for them to call me up. Since I read one book written by Adam Khoo, who is a alumni of my university, the National University of Singapore, I become obsessed with wealth creation, personal development, etc. The book gives me a lot of inspiration, and it has greatly widen my horizon! The book is “Secrets of Self-Made Millionaire“. It is a book full of illustrations and full of strategies. I just wish I could have found the book earlier and I have started to know Adam Khoo earlier. Sigh! Do not be sad, as it is better to be late than never! At least, I know a lot more than before from the single book!

I have shared with my close friends my thoughts on the book “Secrets of Self-Made Millionaire”, most of my friends do not give it a second thought, they think that the book is a scam!!! He denies my idol, adam khoo totally. I volunteer to lend the book to them, they do not want to! It is so sad. As I know the book has the power to change their view, to change their life, but some friends just ignore and resist it, it is such a pity. Some friends are like that, even there is something beneficial to them, they still resist it and do not give them a chance to grow and to learn more from successful people. As we live in a global world, everyone is connected somehow. There must be someone who is better than us, and we can learn from them. Especially there is someone, who is so young and yet has achieved some much in his career, and yet he is willing to share his secrets on making his first million at the age of 26 depite going to the Army for 2.5 years, there is every reason for any HIGHLY motivated, humble and success-driven person, either young or old,  to take the opportunity to learn his secrets and model his success.

Recently, I have found a offer on the book I mentioned earlier, “Secrets of Self Made Millionaire“, together with the book are 12 audio CDs produced by Adam Khoo, the author for the book. The total investment I did on the CDs and the ebook is $97. I have purchased it online some time ago, now, I  save the audio files to my handphone memory card, I always listen to those audios when I am waiting for my bus, when I  am walking alone on the street. The author’s voice and tonality, plus the content of the CD is very inspiring, and I feel so happy I made the decision to buy the CDs. The CDs includes millionaire mindsets, how to creat multiple streams of income, how to start an online business, and how to design your finiancial future, and so on. It covers a lot of aspects of being rich. It is really worth buying it.

I really enjoy my time here and I love sharing. I  am currently residing in Singapore, if any foreigners want to come here for holiday, and you want some recommendations from me, do drop me a comment and leave your email, I will get back to you soon. Also, if there are any like minded people, I welcome you to email me and we can encourage each other, and learn from each other. Learning never stops and I feel so happy that I have find that something (Secrets of Self Made Millionaire) which has totally changed my life.

I  talked so much on my idol, adam khoo, simply I really thank him for the excellent book has written and the CDs he is offering to all of us at an affordable price, $97. If you are one who desires success and are prepared to take whatever it takes to become successful, then this offer is for you. Investment on ourselves is never too expensive, especially when the investment is on our mind. Grab your opportunity and get the CDs and eBook in a minutes, and start your journey to success. If you feel satisfied with my recommendation, do let me know. I love to hear to what  my friends want to share.  

I hope you get something useful out of this post.

Stay tuned.

To your success and happiness.

Hi, Dear friends,

Did I tell you that I was from China mainland and am currently  studying in Singapore, a small country located near the Equator? Yes, I am a Chinese, I have a scholarship from Singapore government and am currently persuing my undergraduate studies at the National University of Singapore which is ranked among the world top 25 universities, in fact it is ranked 22 last year. I am so proud of it, as it is a very promising university. Well, enough bragging!

I have been here for more than 6 years, I came  here in year 1999, 17th, October, when I was 16 years old. That time, I just felt so miserable living in this country, I  cannot speak English, and I cannot communicate with my teachers and local friends. I remember one event vividly, during one English class, the teacher told us a joke, and the whole class started to laugh immediately except me! I  asked my desk mate what was going on, how come every body is laughing, at whom? Then my friend translated the English joke to the “Chinese version”, and I started to laugh. At this moment, everybody started to look at me, you can imagine how embarrassed I was at that moment! … I felt so homesick. It was the darkest and most depressing period in my life… You may ask me why did I choose to come all the way from China to Singapore to suffer like that, it is because I want to reduce the financial burden on my parents, I was getting a scholarship from the Ministry of Education, Singapore, they offer me full scholarship, I do not need to pay a cent to them. That time, as long as I do not need to pay money to have education, I was very happy already.

Later on, I went to the Number 1 junior college, Victoria Junior College, and I spent my two years there mugging and mugging, I have to, as if I do not do well, my scholarship will be terminated and I will be forced to pay school fee on my own. At this crical junction, an angel appeared in my life, Irene, she then bacame my roommate. She was a very helpful and sweet girl. Together both of us survived A Level. That is why now I am able to study at NUS.

I start to enjoy life once I enter university. During the weekend, on Saturday, I will keep myself busy by joining some extra-curricular activities, and then go out giving private tuition to earn some pocket money. On Sunday, I will try to learn something to enrich myself, like learning how to cook different types of dishes. I mean Chinese dishes. I feel so shameful to tell you that I did not learn any cooking at in China. Recently, when I surfed internet and  I found an English website, which is teaching how to cook delicious and healthy chinese dishes. It is a cookbook and costs less than 20 bucks. Go and take a look. If you are just curious about learning how to Chinese dish, you can go to their site and substribe to their “Real and Healthy Chinese Cooking” Newsletter for free and they will send your email box free cooking recipes and tips. Go and get the most out of that website now. Click here.  If you are not a Chinese, it is a good chance that you learn to cook some exotic and healthy chinese dishes for your loved ones.If you are a Chinese, good, you can learn to cook some new dishes now.

Happy Chinese New Year to all my faithful readers!

Happy Chinese New Year to all my Chinese readers.

I am so happy and excited to start off this post. Now, it is public holiday and from yesterday and until next Thursday, it is my university (the National University of Singapore)  recess week, a week meant for all students to catch up their studies and prepare for the coming midterm tests. It sounds a bit sarcastic, right? Never mind, I will try to make this recess week balanced with studies, private tuition and fun outdoor activities.

Tomorrow we are going to climb Bukit Timah Hill, although  I  have been staying in Singapore for more than 6 years, I  have never been to this Bukit Timah Hill before. I want to stretch myself up and I want to be fit. Don’t you? I just received my medical report from DAYSPRING Wellness, after I read the report, I am generally healthy, but I  am a bit underweight, my current weight is 45 kg, and my ideal weight should be 51.5 kg. Ha, I should have no worry to eating more during this Chinese New Year. It is not good to be neighter overweight too much nor overweight too much. We all should try to control our weight within the healthy range, as our body weight plays a big role in determining our general health.  Here, I suggest all of us to go for medical check up at least once a year. This can put our mind at rest if we know what we do and eat is promoting our health. Right?

Well, we all have 24 hours a day, and we all have a lot of things to accomplish. Hence, time management is very important. I have been trying hard to plan my daily schedules to accomplish what I want to do within each day. I tend to focus on “TODAY“, I always try to make my “today” work for me and try to utilise it to its fullest for every ” today”. I hope you also have your way to achieve the most out of one day. A secret I want to share with you is to plan your day before you go to bed. For me, every day, before I  go to bed, I will list down the things I  decide to accomplish the next day on a piece of paper and stick it to my laptop screen. So the next day when I get up, I will feel totally prepared and happy to start one day off. If you have any suggestions or ideas , do drop me a comment and let’s start our discussion, so that we can learn from each other.

Come and join me.
