Now in Quayside

I am now in Quayside condo to do my laundry of washing my bedsheet, pillow and bolster cases. There is also a machine dryer to dry up the washed items. I packed dinner along which was part of lunch in half portions. Brought along my book and magazine to read while waiting for the laundry to finish. Also am pleased that I got paid USD 70 via my paypal for 7 articles written for a Singapore website of around 1,000 words plus with free pictures included. It is about things to do in Switzerland and is a curated website where you have to do some research for approval. There are dozens of writers on this content rich site, hence I am lucky to be accepted for all my articles written so far.

Tomorrow is pay day as today is a public holiday and all banks are closed. I took the opportunity to change the bedsheets as my partner has hinted it some days back. Also signed up for some surveys to do in my free time. There is no way to get rich using the quick scheme which cons many people of their hard earned money. Beware of money games, binary systems that predicts whether the stocks will go up or down and promises of software that is automated and correct 70% of the time to help you make money! In fact, it is just the opposite; it helps the owner to make money while you lose money. In stocks, someone will make cash at the expense of another who will lose it instead.

Nothing beats the old traditional way of studying hard and working hard to save up bit by bit to become rich. How do I know this? Well I read the newspapers and 2 articles were written by different experts with sound advice. They are more practical and teach you the delayed gratification method of getting there while eschewing speculation and gambling. In a nutshell, there is no short cut to success. And don’t get hoodwinked into network marketing or MLM of alkaline water, aromatherapy of Lampe Berger and such. Don’t let greed get the better of you, but use common sense to protect your money from tricksters, conmen, etc.

Booked Disney on Ice next week at SPICE Penang

disney-on-ice-2016

I just booked Disney on Ice 2016 in SPICE Arena, Penang on a Sunday, 27th March which is just next week. There are 3 shows per day. The 2 tickets with GST cost me RM 296.36 which is quite near to the front view and the third most expensive ones. Did not intend to pay too much for direct front view and prefer to watch from the top of the spectators’ seats for a top view. This is not the first time we are watching an ice skating performance. We have watched previous ones like Beauty and the Beast and now the theme is mostly on Frozen.

Thereafter, there is a talk on M-Points at Penang Times Square for its members and those who are interested at 7pm. I joined as a member, having paid RM 4,500 or equivalent to USD 1k in this money game which is a bit like shares which can split its points, redeem for gifts at M Mall in Penang Times Square, and also go for overseas tours plus other features.

Buy Dividend Stocks

If you want to buy stocks, go for dividend stocks with a dividend yield of about 10%. If you keep collecting the dividends for 10 years, it would have paid for the stock and anything beyond that is net profit. There are a few formula to consider when deciding to choose dividend stocks. Some people depend on the cash received from the dividends for their livelihood.

If you are an accountant, investing in shares will be much easier as you would be used to number crunching. The current ratio is a test of a company’s financial strength. It calculates how many dollars in assets are likely to be converted to cash within one year in order to pay debts due during the same year. You can find the current ratio by dividing the total current assets by the total current liabilities.

By investing in dividend stocks, you should look out for dividend yield of more than 2%. Dividend yield is calculated as annual dividend price over the price per share of the stock. Look out for dividend stocks that pay consistently every year. This means that the company is making profits annually and sharing its profits with shareholders.

As a shareholder, you are just like the owner of the company. Stock trading involves understanding the business and nature of the company well and not just simply invest without any knowledge whatsoever about the business nature.
