Weekend Sharing - On Movie, Book, Cryptocurrency and CPF

Wow! We are already in the final month of 2017 and in 3 weeks' time, most of us will be celebrating the most celebrated festival, Christmas! Since it's a bright Sunday, let's share something not so serious.

On Movie:
Being a movie buff, I do watch a lot of movies, trailers and reviews. Recently, one of the most anticipated trailer, The Avengers - Infinity War has been released and it has went viral unprecedentedly in all social medias.

Oh boy! it is marvelously jaw dropping (again), only Marvel can outdo Marvel. 

If you still haven't join in the fun yet (which I doubt so), check out the first trailer of The Avengers - Infinity War here:

What do you think?

On Book:
I am currently reading a book from Dan Ariely and Jeff Kreisler called "Dollars and Sense - How We Misthink Money and How To Spend Smarter". The title itself already quite self-explanatory on what you are dealing with.

I am a fan of Dan Ariely's earlier books like Predictably Irrational, The (Honest) Truth About Dishonesty and Irrationally Yours, so, this latest co-authored book of him is no escape.

I especially like the following dedication which summarizes the gist of the book:   

For the wonderful things you do for us, the terrible things you do to us, and all the gray matter in between"

On Cryptocurrency
In the last 2 weeks or so, the Cryptocurrency market (especially Bitcoin) has been going through a wild ride. From shooting through the record-breaking roof (USD 11,000) to fall down 20% and then go back up again and now sitting at around USD 10,900+. 

Yesterday, CME Group and CBOE announced that they will begin the Bitcoin Futures trading from 18th December 2017 (Mon), coupled with the news that PWC Hong Kong (one of the Big Four) has started to accept Bitcoin payment.

All these are good progression of the legitimacy of bitcoin. Of course, the same cannot be said for all cryptocurrency, some of the alt coins are better to stay away. Also, some countries still treat cryptocurrency as illegal. 

In today's The Sunday Times, CEO of The Providend, Christopher Tan has written an article to clear the air on some misconception of CPF Scheme which went viral recently - Separating fact from fallacy about CPF.

It's worth a read as I am sure this is a common myth among the CPF members.

That's it for today.
