    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

    Before delving into my plan on how to deal with K and company going forward, it is important to understand where we stand as a company, which I will lay out in detail for my own sake as well. Since inception, the company has undergone a multitude of directional changes and now finds itself stuck woven in an […]

    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 […]

    There’s Always A Bull Market Somewhere

    I have not been sleeping much as of late, getting as little as 2-3 hours of shut-eye per day the past week. The reason is not due to jet lag, but simply because there has been so much to do. It is not all work, mind you, as I have been liable to meander off in […]

    A Run-in With Friendly North Koreans

    One thing about working with partners remotely is that a lot changes during time away, much like any relationship. Particularly in business, every day presents new opportunities and with a single stroke of a pen your local book store can turn into a lemonade stand overnight. In that sense, it would be an understatement for me to say […]

    DJI Unveils New ‘Feature’ To Spy On Drone Owners, Continues To Dominate Market

    What is it with people these days flying their drones into planes? Were you not able to see the fucking plane? Or perhaps, you just wanted to see ‘what would happen if you hit it’? I have been following the drone industry with abiding interest since 2016 when I went head first into that industry, […]
