Netlink NBN Trust IPO and War For The Planet Of The Apes

In about two days' time, we will know the ballot result of the biggest IPO in the recent years, Netlink NBN Trust. So far, it attracted mixed response among the retail investors. Some view it as too expensive, some say that it has limited growth potential, while others think that there are other counters (especially REITs) can provide better dividend yield than this. On the other hand, some waited for this IPO for quite some time and since it's priced at a lower end of the initial indicated Price Range, it might be a great opportunity to try their luck for some profits.   

To each its own, we will know the outcome in a couple of days time, meanwhile, if you are still pondering, do make sure to make up your mind by 11:59 AM tomorrow (17/07/2017, Mon) :-) As for me, I will be trying my luck with my usual minion lots (see my earlier post on this IPO here). 

So, what does War For The Planet Of The Apes (the movie) got to do with this IPO? The truth is, absolutely nothing :-P 

I am sharing this is because today is Sunday and if you got intention to catch a movie today, this is the movie that you should seriously consider. It's the final chapter of the popular Trilogy (Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes in 2011, Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes in 2014 and now War For The Planet Of The Apes). I am sure you will be emotionally vested with the apes (not the human being). 

Check out the trailer of War For The Planet Of The Apes here:

"Ape-yy" Sunday...

This Video Channel Will Accelerate Your Learning From Books

I am a bookworm and like to read, a lot. The problem with me is that I slow to read but quick to forget. Recently, I chanced upon a Youtube Channel which is quite cool (at least to me) whereby it will definitely accelerate (speed up) your learning from books. 

The Channel is called One Percent Better, hosted by a 22-something Australian called Brandon. He produced cool animated whiteboard drawing video, summarizing the salient points of the book that he read. He is not alone, occasionally, he will also rope in other similar channels' book summary videos. Overall, it is a great resource to get to know the gist of the book in less than 10 minutes time. 

Of course, reading (physical book or ebook) is a pleasurable hobby that cannot be easily replaced for many, you are still encourage to read the actual book as long as you've got time, but this resource do came in handy if you just want a quick summary of a particular book.  

Some example of the popular books can be found in the channel:

1. The Psychology of Persuasion by Robert Cialdini:

2. Tools of Titans by Tim Ferriss:

3. Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill - How to Be Rich:

Hope this sharing is of some use to you and make you "one percent better" every week (I believed that's the original intention of Brandon when he created this Youtube Channel).

Looks Who Are Coming Home?

No, I am not talking about the obvious : the upcoming release of the Spider-man Homecoming, but since we are on this topic, might as well. :-)

If you have not already know, the Spide-rman reboot is coming to cinemas near you this week. Basing on the early review, this is one of the best Spider-man thus far, very true to the comic (or so they said). Regardless, I am a superhero movies fan and will definitely catch it real soon. 

Not convinced? 

Check out the Spider-man Homecoming trailer below:

OK! Let's come back to the real homecoming that I am talking about. 

Drum roll........

It's the A&W fast food restaurants !  

Yes, you heard it right, after exiting from Singapore for more than 10 years ago, A&W (Allen & Wright) is making a come back, finally, as early as 2018.

For the official news, check it out here

Ohhh.. the curly fries, the root beer float (remember, the one with ice cream topping?)... Yum yum..

I am definitely looking forward to it (both the Spidey and A&W), what about you?
