He's a regular at local gigs. He's really good at dancing spontaneously. And he's the uncle I'll always remember for giving us one of our best gigs yet.

Two financial institutions, Sun Hung Kai and KGI Asia, have compensated their customers in full and 16 banks have offered to repay between 60-70% of the principal invested. The securities watchdog, SFC, is likely to reject the proposal by the 16 banks as they are demanding the banks pay investors in full. The Hong Kong authorities have found misconduct among the banks in the selling of these products[Link]. I believe Hong Kong banks will eventually compensate investors in full. . In Singapore, 5350 out of 10000 investors filed complaints. Of the 5350, 66% or roughly 3500 received offers of compensation on a no-admission-of-liability-basis. 25% or roughly 1300 received full compensation.
Recommended by at82: "Catastrophic events such as the minibond saga that occurs in Singapore and somewhere else at the same time is rare but it allows us to compare the behavior of our leaders and the authorities with those of other countries. The type of outcome they aim for says a lot about where their interests lie."

There is news reports saying that Jet Li bought a condo at Armour Park and migrated to Singapore with his family - his wife, and 2 daughters. He is attracted by Singapore’s famous and successful education systems. I wonder, his daughters will be studying in local schools or those international schools? Maybe one day when you are shopping at Orchard Road, you will see Jet and his wife 利智 also jalan jalan there at Taka?

March 14 (Bloomberg) -- Singapore, once so staid it banned bungee jumping, has cut taxes, opened its doors to casinos and hired fund managers to oversee billions of dollars of state funds to help attract international investment.
While the city-state has made progress toward becoming a more vibrant financial hub, it's still falling behind perennial rival Hong Kong.

Flying Chair was interviewed on Channel NewsAsia:
When asked whether blogging could lead to more unsavory activities on the Internet such as online sex I did actually respond that such a statement was akin to saying losing one's your virginity would lead to a life of prostitution.
I wonder how many bloggers work in Orchard Towers?
