Hi there! My name is Emily and I live in Kuala Lumpur Malaysia, home of the Petronas Twin Towers. A multi-racial country of 28 million people, Malaysia is divided into Peninsular Malaysia (at the southern tip of South-east Asia) and East Malaysia (part of Borneo Island). It has great weather, rainforests & mountains, beautiful beaches, clear blue seas and THE best food in the world.

I’ve worked in the media/content industry in the APAC region, and am passionate about music and films. As far as music goes, I like listening to soul, funk, jazz and anything on a groove tip (Jill Scott anyone??) and I’ve really enjoyed movies directed by Wim Wenders, Woody Allen, Wes Anderson and recently, Alexander Payne (Sideways) and Michel Gondry (Eternal Sunshine)

My other passions are investments and astrology. I enjoy going to property launches and making up financial plans for family and friends alike (nerd!). I think a key ingredient to creating wealth is to increase one’s financial IQ. My financial education came from attending seminars, courses, reading books and testing out with a small online share portfolio – the best way to force oneself to learn! The quest to financial freedom continues for me…

An Aquarius with Cancer rising and Taurus moon, my progress in studying astrology has unfortunately been put on hold (for now) with too many competing pastimes……….!

Last but not least, I am a trained Chartered Accountant and Certified Financial Planner, but certainly not a licensed investment adviser. The contents of this blog are my opinions only, and not my recommendations. Please read my disclaimer for more on this.
