well, the market is not near its bottom yet. You can profit from the economic meltdown by purchasing commodities, properties, etc. The thing is timing. The depression of 1929 had a few profiteers. JP Morgan, Rockafellers. They bought all those companies for pennies on the dollar, once the stock crashed. Just wait until the market bottoms, and new signs of recovery to signal the shopping spreed. You might want to be really extremely careful. this is not easy as your friend makes it sound like. He is right, bu at the same time really foolish. You just dont buy real state specially now. The housing prices are going to drop still, dont be stupid and do some research on your own. Dont let another guy tell you what to do – especially with finances

My family and I are planning to have a vacation in Singapore for 4D/3N. We’re planning to stay in Fragrance Hotel – Emerald. Any comments/advice in this hotel?

Fragrance Hotel Emerald is smack in the middle of the red light district, my dear. Hotels with EVEN street number in Geylang Singapore are in the red light district.

It’s true that the ladies are harmless, but it does mean that they will be hovering around your hotel hoping to get business.

The area however has an incredible range of eateries and fruit stalls. And many Singaporeans come here for the food.

For something in the same budget, you may also consider the friendly New 7th Storey Hotel –
