    A business acquaintance bought a shophouse near Danga Bay. He said he trusted Tony Fernandez as he set up Tune Hotel there & that Tony should have the inside connections on the future development of the area. For sharing.

    Yes, my learned friends think so too. They just don't trust certain developers too much these days.

    Have you visited Hotboyfishing?
    Was told the maintenance cost of Kelong can be very high due to corrosion...

    Didn't want to post this on the main thread but to those who went in to buy industrial that time, the price for the larger one is now more than 1-200k more and the smaller has done pretty ok as well.

    As for the 3 different residential projects, i think we got pretty lucky as well.
    Well done and congrats!!! :)

    Exactly, investor is a very astute investor indeed. Look at whatever he bought, all turned into gold. He has the Midas touch. :)

    Kelong, agricultural, farming - Try not to touch as the incoming global war on resources may mandate certain government takeover, etc.

    For those of you who has spare cash, you might want to consider buying Gold Bars as a long term investment. You dont need a lot of cash to collect 1 Oz of Gold bar at USD 1670. Imagine, if you only collect 1 Oz every year and put it away as savings......

    Cheers

    Agree, gold is a good investment vehicle but best to buy from UOB and i would only buy Canadian Maple gold coins as it is more liquid if one only needs a portion. There are pros and cons to each type but i will stick with the gold coins.

    We can buy gold ETF just like buying stock from singapore exchange.
    I prefer this than physically buying the gold.
    I think good to keep like 5-10% of total portfolio in gold.
