    LEMONBEER

    Believe it or not, the above has tremendous popularity in South East Asia, perhaps due to the tendency of people to put lemons in every drink here. Personally, I couldn’t tell you if it was good or not, since I am not a consumer of alcohol, and as a matter of fact, I have no […]

    On The Business Of Cultural Arbitrage

    If you want something from someone – it could be anyone, there is one way, and only one way, to go about accomplishing that; which is to make that person want to give it to you. Granted, you can pistol whip somebody and snatch their gold chains, or even trick someone nefariously into sleeping with […]

    An Ideal Day To Catch Up On Markets, Sleep, And Other Things Of Great Importance

    Today marks the cremation ceremony for the late King of Thailand, aka the most important day in the country. The entire city is clad in black like you’d never believe. Perhaps easy to visualize, but witnessing in person an entire city of black feels rather unreal. If you don’t intend on joining the throng of the million+ […]

    A Rather Fortunate Turn Of Events

    I had a rather productive day today, conversing with the heads of both MGD and IZM for the better part of the afternoon. The story pertaining to how I came to be involved with those 2 companies can be found here. Our original plan was to meet last night but that was cancelled, so naturally, K […]

    Thai Big Oil Companies Diversify Into Dim Sum & Coffee, Among Other Things

    According to the folks over at PTT, Thailand’s largest energy company, clean energy – namely electric vehicles – is killing their business and their future looks rather gloomy. So gloomy in fact, they have been assiduously looking for other sectors to invest in, most notably cafes, coffee, and for the love of god, DIM SUM […]

    Caution: Be Wary Of Overly-Friendly Male Masseuses

    Whenever it rains in Bangkok, as it does often around this time of year, all outdoor activity comes to a standstill. These rains usually catch people off guard, as they go from 0 to 100 real fast, and back down to 0 even faster. During these times, street vendors cover all their wares with tarps […]

    The Bangkok Drainage System Needs An Upgrade, And Fast

    Why is that boat posing as a fucking minivan, you ponder? It may interest you to know that that is not a river, but in fact a street, and that transformation from street to river occurred inside of an hour. What’s even more curious to note is that within the next 60 minutes, all of […]

    The Story Of How It All Came To Be

    Bullish on OLED Screens

    I bought OLED @ $135.10 in my spec account. This sector is simply too hot to ignore. 10’s of billions of dollars are expected to pour into the supply-side of this technology over the next few years as Samsung, LG, and the likes battle it out for market share. Note that Apple currently buys the OLED screens […]

    So What’s The Gameplan?

    As much as I despise trade shows, I also understand there is unlimited opportunity for those with talent to ‘work the room’ to build rapport and open accounts – an art I endeavor to someday master. If I were to guess, I would say north of 90% of trade show attendees gain nothing from their time spent […]
