Happy Chinese New Year

Wishing everyone a happy and prosperous lunar new year.
May the year of the dog brings health, wealth, love, and peace to all of you!

By the way, I learned from a Korean friend in the beginning of the year that the Koreans celebrate the lunar new year as well. The new year greeting is 새해복많이받으세요 (sae hae bok mani badeuseyo), which means something like "receive many blessings for the new year".

While I was in Oregon back in January 2003, a Vietnamese friend taught me the phrase "Chuc Mung Nam Moi". That's the greeting for Tet, i.e. the Vietnamese lunar new year. He taught me the tone of the pronunciation as well.

Gong Xi Fa Cai !!!

Got money?

I think our beloved national car company needs it.

As reported by Business Week on January 12, 2006 that Volkswagen ends partnership with Proton, I started to worry about my hard-earned money in our Kumpulan Wang Simpanan Pekerja (Employee Provident Fund) account. Please spare my money, please...

While taking my shower, "Eureka!". I found not one, but two solutions for the ailing company. Don't be a social burden, find a new partner today! However, there is a twist to this first proposal recently. Our "billionaire friend" had been arrested and will be remanded for 4 days. This website definitely has more information. Damn it! No worries, I have alternatives.

Before we start, please permit me to make your acquaintance in an informal manner. This is necessitated by my urgent need to reach a dependable and trustworthy partner. I would also like to seek your strictest confidentiality and honest cooperation in order to ensure the success of these deals.

First of all, we have Barrister Nwachukwu Williams from Williams & Associates Chambers. His office is located at 2nd Floor, Great Nigerian House, 45 Martins Street, Lagos, Nigeria. He promised to give us 30% of US$ 6,500,000 (six million five hundred thousand million dollars).

Next, Hajia Mariam Abacha, the wife of the late General Sani Abacha, also from Nigeria would like to share 30% of her USD 40.3 million. Due to security reason, we will be dealing with his son, Mustapha.

Barrister Kelly Paul does not want to see a huge amount of money that belongs to his client to be confiscated by the Standard Trust Bank Plc., Nigeria. We will take 50% of the total sum of USD 23 million.

Due to diversification and globalisation, we also have to look for partnership beyond Nigeria. Mrs. Grace Komlla who is the branch manager of Banque Commercail SA Ghana du Togo will pay us 35% of USD 4.5 million.

On ther other hand, Mr. Jeff Mog, a divorcee, was a farmer in Zimbabwe until August 2003, when the government of Robert Mugabe decided to seize all farmlands owned by whites without compensation. He would like to work with us and will part 20% of USD 28.75 million.

The biggest deal comes from Barrister Yassin Ali Mohamed. He was the family attorney to late Vice President John Garang of Sudan. The Darfur rebels killed his wife on her way back from work recently, and for this reason he had moved his family from Sudan to London for safety. We will be getting 27% of USD 380 million from our partnership.

Since the value of US dollar is weakening, investors are looking to Euro. The late former minister of health of the Republic of Benin, Olukoye Ransom Kuti was wise enough to work towards that direction. His wife, Mrs. Mercy would like to transfer the money to our country and we will be rewarded with 20% from the total of Euro 20 million.

All these transactions will be executed under legitimate arrangements that will protect us from any breach of the law. Well, we are on our way to make US$ 135,465,000 and € 2,400,000 pre-tax.

Due to time constraint, I have rejected the partnership offer from Dr. Belo Ige of the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN). We understood that it is not possible for one to do everything with two hands. I would like to seek your confidence in establishing a joint venture with us. I will be introducing you to Barrister Bello Danjuma and Mr. Kesiena Udu shortly. We will entrust you to execute these transactions on our behalf. Terms and conditions are negotiable.

Should you be interested to commence this business, I will require you to furnish me with your personal details such as full name, home and office addresses, phone and fax numbers respectively, which will be used in processing all the legal documentations, empowering you to apply for and have all the funds transferred to your credit.
