ASSI's Guest bloggers

A message from AK as ASSI turns 8.

Sunday, December 24, 2017

Christmas Eve of 2009.

My blog was born.

Why did I start blogging?

It was out of boredom and curiosity.

On this day, the message I wish to share is more than

"If AK can do it, so can you!"

Instead, take a look at this:

Reader #1 says...
No need to think so much. Just buy, hold and sell when AK does. He's the Oracle.

AK says...

I am no Oracle and I am thinking of retiring or at least semi-retiring from blogging.
So, better do not rely on me. ;)

And I do mean it.

Reader #2 says...
I hope your readers know how not to go in or follow blindly...

AK says...
Everybody should have a plan, their own plan.
It is never a good idea to ride on someone's coat-tail.

We are very lucky that in Singapore financial freedom is not a dream for most of us.

By being prudent, pragmatic and patient, we can achieve financial freedom and we should.

However, it is a dream that AK can do no wrong and that AK will always be here.

Why be prudent, pragmatic and patient?

Read this and be wealthy:

Three attributes of a wealthy peasant.

Christmas is the season of giving. And prudent readers are eagerly awaiting to open AK's presents with a click of the mouse. So, please continue giving until next Christmas and it will come full circle again. And very soon, it'll be the 10th Anniversary.
Readers of AK Blog are prudent, down-to-earth, patient, long-term value investors.
Punters, day-traders and gamblers won't bother to read nor follow AK Blog as it doesn't offer them the quick riches they're looking for.

Happy "Huat" (8th) Anniversary!!! :)

Hey just relak & do your own thing for a while .... maybe come out of hibernation when the next -50% bear strikes! Hohoho!!!

Wait for inspiration & passion for continuation of the blog.

Heck I'm too lazy nowadays to even comment much on blogs ... hope I won't ever become too lazy to think for myself!! :)

Hi Laurence,

Sounds like your season of giving stretches from now till next Christmas and beyond.

Let's see if ASSI continues till the 10th year. ;)

AK71 said...

Hi Spur,

Such an auspicious number, right?

Huat ah!

I have to remind myself that I blog because I want to and not because I need to. ;p
