Ten legendary princesses of Malaysia - some are mythical fairy princesses whose stories are as wonderful and romantic as any of the princess stories from around the world. One, Hang Li Po came from a far off land and her retinue of young beauties are believed to be the far distant mothers of the Nonya. Others were real historical figures although their stories have been embellished over the years as they were passed down from generation to generation. But all have fired our imagination with tales of their beauty, bravery, wisdom and spirit.

DOSA MALAM PENGANTIN
Reyna tidak terasa bersalah apabila kerap menangguhkan perkahwinannya dengan iskandar. Bagi beliau kerjayanya sebagai model adalah lebih utama. Dunia glamor yang bergemerlapan adalah segala-galanya. Lagipun, apa yang mereka sama-sama tidak perolehi kecuali pernikahan?
Hello everyone! Hope you all had a relaxing, treat-yourself-Sunday. For those students coming up on finals week, my prayers are with you Today I spent a good chunk of the day reading "Flash Boys" by Michael Lewis. In the aggressive environment of Wall Street's high frequency equities trading, one unlikely mild-mannered Canadian, bets on himself to beat the big banks and defend the everyday investor. Armed with the power of matching buyer and seller on the equities platform, banks would set the buying price slightly higher and profit from the buying price difference. Brad, driven to change the system, created a new free market exchange platform called IEX where banks didn't act as intermediaries.
There is an underlying meaning under this unique, market changing story. It is to "be courageous and take a stand for change when it needs to occur." Brad and his team introduced a game-changing system that worked against the interests of big banks. They faced the market bullies and updated a corrupt system. So the next time you see something you believe needs to change, stand your ground and offer alternatives.
As always, remember to FIND THAT VALUE!
