    Hello 2009, Goodbye 2008

    Every year it turned out to have a handful of events which leave a huge impact on me.

    1. The earthquake in China which touched every Chinese in the world. Tofu building, what a way to build them and worse of all. Tofu School Buildings.

    2. The wonderful Beijing Olympics. It looks great, in fact the greatest i think but personally in term of morality acts and behaviours. The Chinese still have a big leap to make. No offences to anyone, but the poison milk incident is 1 good example. I bet i do not have to elaborate more.

    3. Singapore first ever NIGHT GP. Kudos to the organisers to complete all the required works in such timeframe. Although there are room for improvements, but hey, there are always room to improvement. I have been there, heard the machines tore down the street of the Singapore city. I love it and I bet the rest who were there agreed with me.

    4. The end of IBs, the end of Bear Sterns, the Mac siblings and Lehman Brothers, the end of ML and nearly AIG too. A new word which has been hardly used before. Trillion. Million is a rare word now. Trillion is the 'in' thing now.

    5. President-elect of the United States : Barack Obama. What can I say? Nothing because it is none of my concerns since i'm not an US citizen. I do not know much about him, neither will i read up more about him but his election campaign was one of the top event of 2008. Agreed?

    6. The Mumbai attacks. This shook the entire region or the world i think. Unfortunately, it left me with a countryman (it is a lady) died. May you rest in peace.

    I hope 2009 will be a good year for everyone, myself, my career and most importantly, You. I hope you will have a smooth sailing year ahead and I will always stand by your side. :)

    Singapore GrandPrix

    My map and my grandstand ticket.

    Yes, the first ever night race have completed and I have finally have the tested of the F1 machine raw sound. It was awesome, brilliant, stunning and magnificent. I never regretted going for the event, even though I was all by myself on the Grandstand.

    A map sighting your location.

    The view from my Grandstand.

    The day Wall St is no longer the same......

    1. Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc. was a global financial services firm until its bankruptcy in September 2008. The firm did business in investment banking, equity and fixed-income sales, research and trading, investment management, private equity, and private banking. It was a primary dealer in the U.S. Treasury securities market. Its primary subsidiaries included Lehman Brothers Inc., Neuberger Berman Inc., Aurora Loan Services, Inc., SIB Mortgage Corporation, Lehman Brothers Bank, FSB, and the Crossroads Group. The firm's worldwide headquarters were in New York City, with regional headquarters in London and Tokyo, as well as offices located throughout the world.

    On September 15, 2008, it filed for bankruptcy protection; the filing marks the largest bankruptcy in U.S. history. The following day, its investment banking and trading divisions were acquired by Barclays along with its New York head office.

    2. Merrill Lynch & Co., Inc. is a global financial services firm. Through its subsidiaries and affiliates, the company provides capital markets services, investment banking and advisory services, wealth management, asset management, insurance, banking and related financial services worldwide. Merrill Lynch is headquartered in New York City, and occupies the entire 34 stories of the Four World Financial Center building in Manhattan. Plans were announced on September 14, 2008 for Bank of America to acquire Merrill Lynch, if approved by regulators and shareholders of both companies.

    3.The Bear Stearns Companies, Inc., based in New York City, was one of the largest global investment banks and securities trading and brokerage firms prior to its collapse in 2008. The main business areas, based on 2006 net revenue distributions, were: capital markets (equities, fixed income, investment banking; just under 80%), wealth management (under 10%) and global clearing services (12%).

    Beginning in 2007, the company was badly damaged by the subprime mortgage crisis. In March 2008, the Federal Reserve Bank of New York provided an emergency loan to try to avert a sudden collapse of the company. The company could not be saved, however, and was sold to JPMorgan Chase for ten dollars per share, a price far below the 52 Week High of $133.20 per share, traded before the crisis, although not as low as the two dollars per share originally agreed upon by Bear Stearns and JP Morgan Chase.

    These names are no longer there any more. The businesses will be slowly be changed to their new acquired Company. Whatever it is, it looks like the bear have struck.

    Further to that, AIG needed a lifeline from the Fed to prevent themselves from suffering the same fate as Lehman Brothers. More is sure to come.........

    A lot of happened since my last blog entry. I'm sure a lot more will be happening again.

    Unknowingly it is already Q3 of 2008, I felt nothing much have been achieved. Another year of my life I have wasted and I will never get it back again.

    I have signed up for the 10KM run in Q4, hopefully i can actually finished it below 1hr.....
