    I will read my favorite chinese novels like what I did when I was waiting for my GCE O level result back in year 1993. A fine brew chinese/red tea will go along smoothly with a retro Miss Deng's song.

    when you have 400k you want 800k
    when you have 800k you want 1.6m

    Reasons for this offer : you are so wasted..must back to work and easier to pass time..and make yourself back to the social network again...

    Well, going to turn it down next week........

    The best thing is to do is to start the lifestyle you want now instead of waiting for the passive income target......

    Been semi-retired for over a year... my typical weekday is to send the kids to school, then to exercise with wifey and then breakfast. Trade a bit here and there occassionally and hope to get free dinner hahaha

    Actually was planning to do some charity work but then still haven started yet... ashamed

    And of coz read this forum
    When you have eliminate the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth

    I have done treakking it many times lah b4, I recommend a few for you:
    - Kashmir area, around Vishanshar Lake, this one can ride Donkey when tired

    - Nepal, you can try Panchase first, easy trek, if want challenging go for Annapurna Base Camp

    - Grand Canyon ... this one not for the faint-hearted
    - Yosemite NP - very nice and relaxing ... day trek to half dome
    - Ladakh area in India

    ... many others e.g. Sikkim, Valley of the Flower, Manali, NZ around Milford Sound area, Greek Islands ...
    Ride at your own risk !!!
