Fitch Ratings

So there’s finally some good news coming out of Malaysia. Fitch Ratings has revised it’s outlook on Malaysia’s sovereign rating to “stable” on views that the GST and fuel subsidy reform are supporting the country’s finances. Read it here: http://goo.gl/du60QJ

Okay.. so who really cares about these ratings? After all Malaysia is just as safe (or unsafe) today as it was yesterday, before Fitch decided to revised the outlook. Right? While that may be technically true, but it’s really all about perception…

Due Diligence


I was asked to perform some due diligence work on a property in Kuala Lumpur to properly assess its value and thought I should share what due diligence really means within a real estate context.

According to Investopedia, Due Deligence is an investigation or audit of a potential investment. Due diligence serves to confirm all material facts in regards to a sale. Other legal definitions includes “the care a reasonable person should take before entering into an agreement or a transaction with another party”.

In short, for the purchaser of a property, it is about making sure that you get what you think you are paying for. So in this article, we will explore the due diligence you need to take when buying real estate.

Kota Kinabalu Holiday – Stolen in Paradise

“Kate, Milana and me spent a week in Kota Kinabalu and one of many highlights was our trip to Mamutik Island. In Mamutik, we spent three unforgettable hours swimming, snorkeling and feeding the fishes in clear waters which was only a few meters away from the beach.

We also spent some time at Nexes Residences and Shangri-La’s Rasa Ria Resort chilling and the sunset is simply amazing! For me personally Kota Kinabalu is a great place for a family beach holiday and I will be back again” – Rui Hoe

It’s December. Stop working and get out of town. If you’ve not made plans, here are 5 nature-friendly getaways in Peninsular Malaysia that you should check into for some R & R.

1. Sekeping Serendah, Kuala Lumpur

Sekeping Serendah, Kuala Lumpur

Located in the town of Serendah, the secluded retreat spot is a perfect place to recharge yourself. Sekeping Serendah is a private retreat attempting to tread lightly on the land. The very transparent and open sheds celebrate the beauty of the natural environment surrounding them. The sheds are intentionally kept basic and free from lavishness. They are seen more as ‘glorified tents’ to provide basic shelter for its inhabitants as they commune with the land.

No Place I Rather Be – Andaman at Quayside, Penang Malaysia

22nd Oct 2014

I just had breakfast with my daughter Milana. She’s just a year and 8 months old and has watched all my videos. She can’t talk yet but I can tell how she always roots for me to do my best and get the best deals.

Now rewind to a few years back, the Quayside development in Penang was so hot, it’s hard to even get through the lines. Fast forward to June 2014, I met Christina, the developer to pitch for the chance to market the final and most exclusive tower in this amazing development. And when she said yes, I smiled with great happiness because this is a developer who work so hard to create a stunning development that will never be replicated by anyone.

So to show you how much I love this development, I did another video on the project entitled – No Place I Rather Be

Writing from the heart and if you’re looking for a home, you will fall in love. If you are going to invest, you will fall in love and make lots of money in the long run.

Thanks for reading.
