Living a hangat-hangat tahi ayam life


DSC_0018I don’t know how long usually I put my interest in one field. From the beginning of this blog, my main interest is well, blogging. Honestly, the main motivation is always about money but in the end I find that it’s the small pieces that came along with materialism that satisfied me. I communicate with a lot of people, especially other bloggers, my brother for advanced wordpress scripting, and dear visitors who are always passionate reading my blog. And I’m not far from the main objective either; currently my blogging careers earn me 300+ USD per month. It’s not much but it’s okay as I know that I’m making money while enjoying blogging.

Then I move to investing. Again, the motivation is still about money. So while I was doing that, I started to write about ASB and other invesments. A lot of visitors started to come and asking questions; and I started to find the answers (I don’t know everything :p) . I think for that short while, my biggest achievement is to create a simple ASB calculator. That gave a fulfilling feeling to me.

Then the world was struck with Iphonenism. I found it a very unique phone with tons of uses. I never feel that way with any other handphone. Even with N95, I feel it’s just a handphone that will depreciate to half of its price in several months. But not with Iphone, I feel that its value is increasing each day with thousands of people working on it to bring new applications. I then saw the opportunity to send some Iphone back to Malaysia. Here I am today, being the biggest Iphone seller in Lowyat.net. Now the demand is getting slower, I’ll stop once it’s irrelevance for me to continue.

The most current development in my life is that I’m getting Nikon D80 DSLR. As far as I know it’s the biggest purchase in my life so far. This time, it’s not about making money even though being a part time wedding photographer seems interesting (and lucrative) too. It’s more to hobby, and just to have a good camera. I’ve been learning about photography tricks and photoshopping too. I’ll upload some photos soon.

That’s all for my brief written history. Others are still unwritten. This is not a story about my achievements. It’s a story about doing something that you like and enjoy doing it. Thanks for reading this long post. I don’t know whether it’s useful to you or not but I know I like writing this post.

    yeah~ everyone wish to make money online here including me. But I know I am not a good financial planner or in Calculation. Just don’t know how you make USD 300 per month. It sound a lot for me already. Selling links and ads? but where is those ads?

    BTW, I decided to involve in Public Mutual soon to make my second investment 🙂 blogging is already my 1st 🙂

    Happy to read your blog because I learn here 🙂 thanks!

    mostly i earn from google which I expected to be around 250usd permonth, 50 from text link ads, 20 from some banners that i put on older posts, and around 20usd from custom advertisers.

    for google, it’s combined earning from my other blog, dreamscenevideo.net

    but haven’t updated it for so long. haha

    You certainly lead a right path. It is not the end result that matter, the important thing is the process we are going through with much adventure awaiting.

    I think what’s most important is that we enjoy what we’re doing. The entire process is definitely an experience worth learning.

    This blog seems to get a good ammount of visitors. How do you get traffic to it? It offers a nice individual twist on things. I guess having something authentic or substantial to post about is the most important factor.

    I can’t miss the fact this I disagree with this great end.
