This is somewhat extreme but watch how this Canadian couple chose financial independence over home ownership.  They are in their 30s and,...

Invest X Congress: AK's ticket is up for grabs.

Sunday, May 25, 2014

I was just informed by the organisers that I have a complimentary ticket to Invest X Congress which is happening on 14 June (Saturday) and that I could give it away to anyone I want since I won't be in the audience. I could give it away to a lucky reader too, of course.

However, I thought about it for a while and I think it won't be fair to readers who bought tickets to the event if I were to give my ticket away for free. So, to be fair, this is what I have decided to do:


The early bird offer of $79.00 a ticket to the event has ended. However, if anyone is interested in attending the event and who has yet to buy a ticket could make a bid for my ticket. Minimum bid is $79.00. Just leave a comment here in my blog with your bid. The highest bid will get the ticket. (Er, please remember that the regular price is $99.00 a ticket. Don't go overboard.)

Depending on the response, I could close the bidding process really quickly or let it run for a week.

The money from the sale of this ticket will be donated to a charity of my choice and I shall furnish proof of this donation at a later date. This is in line with one of the objectives of the event and that is to be charitable.

Thank you and I look forward to seeing you at the event. Cheong ah!

haha AK!
The winning bid amount all go to the charity!

That was awesome!

Though I can't attend as I am overseas. I think there are still lots of ppl who will support AK and bid for his ticket. Maybe you can value-add it by signing on the tix! haha

Hi Amos,

Thanks for the encouragement. :)

I see this as a chance for anyone who missed out on the early bird price to get a discount on the regular price of $99 a ticket. ;)

Well, there is no bid yet. So, it could be that all who could go for the event have already bought tickets. In such a case, we will just let the ticket go unclaimed. :)

Hi Unknown,

Thanks for your bid. :)

Hi, I will bid at 88. My Thailand trip has been cancelled and was prepared to buy at the regular price. Now better still, got discount n also for a good cause.

AK71 said...

Hi KP,

Wow! This is indeed a fortunate coincidence. :)

I will let this run for another day and if there is no higher bid, the ticket is yours.

Very auspicious bid too, $88. Huat huat! ;p

Hi AK, I like to bid for $99. :)

AK71 said...

Hi Seth,

Wow! That is the ticket's regular price. Looks like you are not interested in a discount but more interested in how the money is going to charity. I think I shall close the bidding process now. :)

Please email me and I will provide you with more details.

Thank you very much. :)

Hi Seth,

I should have also said that you could contact me on Facebook if you have an account. They have a nifty messaging function.

Facebook is still a new and exciting thing for me. ;p

do you know how many seats are left? It says only 400 seats which I presumed would be snapped up pretty fast? But it worries me to see that it is still not full yet after so long

Hi Janson,

When I met the organisers more than a week ago, I was informed that more than 300 tickets were sold. I guess there could still be a few tickets left now.

However, I was told that the venue is big enough to add another 100 seats, if required. :)
