There are peoples who “found” their place too early in life and refuse to venture further and start to be protective of what they thought it’s theirs forever.

There are also peoples who never settled with what they had and have and still venture further in hope and in search only to find out that their peace took residence in the movements. As a result, when moves become constant, the pattern becomes the landing place.

When we look for that space and place, it's nothing physical and nothing material. You could be sitting somewhere, it's that split second that you are waiting for no one and looking for nothing that energizes you to keep moving. Everything is perspective; if the Elephant with the broken chain refuse to move from her space it is because it all started with her long struggle to get out from the chain in the first place. Time has been unconsciously thrown into the equation too.

You could be sitting in the city but hearing the forest. Time to get lost and let it go (yes sing it!)...

What’s behind “April Fool’s Day“?

The derivation of April Fool's Day or All Fool's Day is uncertain, but the modern believe that it began around 1582 in France with the reform of the Gregorian calendar under Charles IX, where the New Year's Day was moved from March 25 - April 1 (new year's week) to January 1.

Communications were relatively slow in those days and some people were only informed of the change several years later. Still there were more rebellious people whom refused to acknowledge the adjustment and continued to celebrate on the last day of the former celebration, April 1. These people were labeled as "fools" by the public, were subject to ridicule and sent on "fool errands," sent invitations to nonexistent parties and had other practical jokes played upon them.

To CA’tizen, we remain the fools that believe in our brand of services of which persistent is a trade of the fools. To you, make no mistake that GST is impending on this Fool’s Day next year and the government is dead serious on this.

2014... Riding towards of a new journey

Many would presume that the 1st half of the Horse Year in the Chinese calendar would be rather dawdling for many Malaysians economically. With many cooling measures and uncertainties around the constraints brought upon by new policies introduced last November in the new budget announcement by the government.

Thus, instead of sitting there procrastinating and contemplating on what might happen to us next, maybe it’s time to think of some ideas and measures that we can use to turn these constraints into opportunities. So when the times come, we could be the ones that would reap the harvest. That’s Right. It’s all about being “Proactive”.

Don’t just stop there. Keep galloping…while doing that, never stop believing and always keep a prayer for MH370.

Line-up for Real Estate in 2014 – LEGALLY

On the other hand, the forecast takes off with an outline of the “Starting 11”, a term coined by our Chris Tan (since 2014 is also the year for World Cup and it’s also CA 11th Anniversary) where he accurately denotes the legal changes that are going to take place in the year for real estate investment depicting “Players” such as: increased Real Property Gains tax; implementation of Good and Service Tax; increased of ceiling price for foreign purchase; the prohibition of the Developer Interest Baring Scheme and many more that were being featured in the latest issue of THE EDGE for March 2014. According to Chris, its best to let things get settled first where he advise on his strategy known as the “wait-and-see” for the first half of the year. “Only then will you realize the full effect range of these implementations” Chris said.
