9 thoughts on “Relationships – What It Means to You Financially?

  1. Hi Rolf!

    So did you managed to pay last respect to LKY in the Parliament House? I had a good sun tan as im involved in the crowd control everyday over there.

  2. Hi Jfree,

    My utmost respect for you. Your "Tan" is worth it. You can proudly tell your kids in future. 🙂

    I was with a 3 month old, hence will be difficult to go parliament house. Work is another barrier. Instead our whole family goes to community site to pay tribute including the 3 month old. Afterall the little action plus the heart do counts!

    Hope you enjoy the Free tanning! Thanks on behalf of Singaporeans.

  3. Hi Rolf

    Good list of questions there to ponder.

    To be fair, I think there's a little bit of the united nation formality there to sort of "give face" to the nation's greatest loss but there's no doubt the amount of respect that this man has over the world. It lays side by side with the utmost respect the world has for world leaders like gandhi and mandela. The world lost a great leader and is rightfully so during the mourning week it is so evidently painful.

    1. Hi B,

      Thanks. Questions are NOT good when there are no answers! So I fail in this… Haha.

      I agree on some attendees for united nation formality, but you have to look more closely to the names of attendees. LKY is afterall our ex ex PM.

      Many are just not necessary to be here, especially for those in the western cultures.

      Just to illustrate an eg. Mahathir did not attend! I do not think Msia is very far. Mahathir attended Suharto funeral. Let's compare Suharto funeral…

      Hmm… why did Clinton attend? He is no longer the president and USA is not very near. Why did Xi JinPing need to announce China close relationships with Singapore during Boao forum. Why did Bhutan King need to attend.

      Why did Chiam See Tong need to do that even on wheelchair. Not because of formalities but because Chiam is a person who value relationships. Chinese says 讲情讲义.

      I still think that relationships building takes more than just books or formalities. Tried and tested.. 🙂

    1. Hi RetailTrader,

      Building relationships is as difficult as building a portfolio! Maybe more difficult since it requires non-tangible aspects of life.

  4. Rolf,

    Having a genuine interest and curiosity in people help set us apart from the relationship manipulators – you know, those office "politicians" or wolves in sheep clothes who are ever so smooth….

    1. Hi SMOL,

      披着羊皮的狼! Haha… their true wolve's' tails will show eventually.

      But sadly, many of these wolves in office are still surviving and enjoying their lives. So while we cannot be wolve, we need to learn skills to counter them and not be their prey.
