Food... What food?


I want a break.

Sian sian sian.

Deprived of food at home as home emphasis on healthy eating (which means sucky food lah), mood is at an all time low!! Argh. What's it with brown rice and plain veggies and a occasional meat dish DAY AFTER DAY!? Healthy living? I'll die earlier diagnosed with food intake mistreatment. I don't mind health food actually. Just not the same o' shit everyday.


Back to back affairs


School starts!

So far school has been a boring affair. I managed to attend 2. I missed today's lesson because I was packed back to back with work. Literally! I hate myself for letting work interfer with my studies. In fact it started to already in the first week of school. If this goes on, my grades is going to suffer in the long term. I tried to hard to get improved grades last semester. Although nothing fanciful, at least my effort paid off. I firmly believe in the phrase "you reap what you sow".

Apart from my usual property matters, I am handling con-currently a company IT deal as well. Oh man I feel so damn tired. I would have skipped the company IT deal if I had the chance. But since I was serving them since NS times, I can't stop now. Anyway, it's extra income for me. I just hope I don't screw the server up as it has been giving a bit of problems here and there. The company's data is so important. I'm recommending a emergency power backup unit + backup solutions for them. I hope they don't complain and give it a miss. Coz once the server konked out and i was forced to go down within hours. What if I was elsewhere? What if I was overseas? What if I was not free? Their operations just stopped there. No one was able to work as all their data was on the server. No Internet. No emails. It was nerve wreacking for me. What if I couldn't repair it on time? I realised that their company server was mission critical. I must make sure it's 100% up.

Anyway this month is been a fulfilling month for me! I closed a commercial shophouse deal within 1 week! I'm jubilent over this deal because 1) It's my first sale, the rest were rentals 2) I asked for above market commission, which the owner gave! :)

I should hopefully be closing an eating house deal next Monday. I hope the tenant won't run away..... I spent alot of time on brokering the deal. If it goes... Sigh. I'll hate myself for it. I lost an office deal today as well. I guess you'll never close the deal all the time. I just have to learn handle the disappointment when things don't go 100% your way.

Hopefully I'll be able to close the 2nd deal next week and I'll be another step closer to buying my favourite car. I'm literally staring at the car pictures day after day. It's what keeps me moving.

BMW 320i - Nice butt! But I believe the experience of driving it is just a simply press and go kind of feel. Not worth paying the premium for the brand though.

My long time affair with Mitsubitshi Evolution. Now in it's 9th incarnation, I wonder which series it'll be by the time I got $$$ to buy one.

The Toyota Mark-X. Parallel imported only. Looks good. The boot looks like a BMW. And the price is the cheapest of the lot. And you get quality without paying a premium. I think this car suits me best actually.

I guess I shall just go to sleep now and stop daydreaming.

Rosy outlooks?


Closed a deal finally! Rental as usual!

My first office rental is about to close soon, client given in-principle intention to lease the office. Finger's crossed. Next week hopefully I can get the deposit! Fat commission for this one.

Busy week for me. Friend's mom in town to source for a HDB flat. My first HDB transaction. I hope I don't make any bloopers. Later going for viewing at Toa Payoh.

Almost securing exclusive agent rights to a HDB commercial shophouse. Tomorrow I will stage my client and get them to sign it. Hope my sincerity will allow them to give me the rights. Then I can finally market the property as "Sole Agent". Then with the proceeds from the sale, I can help source another property for the owner. Hopefully the proceeds from both deals I can put a downpayment for an Evo? Fat hope I guess. Sigh.

Another coffeeshop talk is that someone is selling his commercial shophouse at a very good price. I must move fast on this one. Due to changes in CPF regulations in July, wonder how's the market reacting to it.

I'm also sorta like involved in a sourcing for a developer for an en-bloc project worth multi-millions in River Valley. As this is a super big deal, I enrolled the help of some senior associates whom I can trust. If by miracle of God and all conditions fit like a jigsaw puzzle, cowabunga!

After a empty month during the World Cup, the market seems to be moving again. Will I be able to ride the wave and be able to balance relationships of my family, gf, friends? I hope so.

Oh yah, school is reopening. Shit.

World Cup Finals Ends with a Lucky Draw Prize


It's been a empty month for me. Two deals flown away, I'm still awaiting an answer from a customer for an eating house near Club Momo. Hopefully I'll know the answer by Tuesday afternoon. I hope this month will be not so quiet for me. It's tough being a commision based earner and having such heavy expenses. Maintaining a car and advertising take a huge chunk off my pocket every month. Shucks.

Went to Jas's birthday party at MOS. Kinda happening as he held it in the special red room on the 2nd floor that is out of bounds to outsiders. Everyone had fun. Saw Ann Kok there. Bumped into Phyllis Quek outside too. Didn't do much there though. Just have drinks and accompany my little pig as well as do a little bit of catch up with everyone. But I still get tired everytime before everyone else. Had to leave early again. Sorry guys.

We went the next day to Clarke Quay to watch World Cup final. Apparently it's organised by FHM Singapore and we had tickets. And this was the only match I get to watch for WC 2006!! *evil grinz*

The event is in open air at the middle of Clarke Quay square below the giant umbrella structures and surrounded by conservation shophouses. There were lots of FHM girls, foosball competitions, Tiger beer and there was also a fashion show by the FHM girls.

Before the show started, there was a lucky draw. Although I did not close any deals this month, guess what?

FHM Lucky Draw First Prize

My mouth dropped when I heard my name. "And the first prize goes to Kenneth. Lim.... Rihao! Is he here?"

I raised my arm and walked quickly to the stage. Went up collect prize, take pic with FHM girl and 2 hosts. She damn tall man. But hot lah.

Won a Pioneer DVD-Recordable HDD player, Davidoff Perfume, $100 SMRT taxi vouchers and a soccer ball which I gave to Raj. Really taico man. I was even joking to my friend when we went to the toilet before the lucky draw that I would win the first prize.

One of my friends also commented "Not bad ah.. You don't really watch world cup then ask you come to watch then u decide to attend and u get the first prize."

Italy played well for 1st half but France did better in the 2nd half. I can't believe Zidane actually head butt that guy. I mean it's his freaking last WC match. Really mad. Definately all over the news tomorrow I bet. But I heard he is still Footballer of the Year. Yah think he deserves the award.

See ya next time World Cup. Congratulations to Italy! Ma Ma Mia!
