Budget 2019. Well, there’s good news and only slightly less good news. The good news is there’s no devil. The bad news is there’s no heaven. There’s nothing for me in there. In the business world, bad news is usually good news – for somebody else. I decide to turn to my old faithful solution to all that is wrong in life. Coffee. 😕

Lunch with family. Lunch makes me feel a bit better. I don’t know what I ate, but I felt immensely better after the first mouthful. It’s nice to just be a mom and hang out with my son at lunch. 🙂

The Edge reported that  the public listed company, TMC Life Sciences Bhd has awarded a RM48.7 million contract to Putra Perdana Construction Sdn Bhd to undertake piling works for construction of the 33-storey Thomson Iskandar Medical Hub in Johor Baru. TMC said its wholly-owned subsidiary BB Waterfront Sdn Bhd has awarded the contract, which is for a period of 40 weeks, with completion by Sept 2, 2019. That’s the intriguing part and what I hope TMC will tell us.  🙂

Snippets from The Star “Umno thought it was holding a diamond, but it turned out to be glass. We respected him as our leader, lived in the same house for so many years, sleeping in the same bed. Suddenly, one morning, we woke up and bye-bye, he is married to the neighbour,” said Kok Lanas assemblyman Datuk Alwi Che Ahmad. 😕 Some says its a reverse takeover. You know a type of merger where a large private company is merged into a smaller, publicly-listed company, and by doing so, becomes one large publicly-listed entity.  😛 This is fun. Coffee, please! 😀

The news, “Three of Seacera Group Bhd’s major shareholders had been forced to to sell down their stakes in the company on the market by the banks or stock broking firms, Seacera said in a Bursa filing today”.   Yeah, how does that happen? Pledging of shares? Margin Calls? Everyone should believe in something. I believe I will have another coffee. 😕

The selling on KLSE just won’t quit 😦 Ringgit slips further as investors await Budget 2019 😦  I don’t know why I can’t build anything that works right anymore. 😕 Clearly, these times are nothing to look forward to, but fighting back can be dangerous. 😕
