Buffett's Car on Auction!

Warren Buffett has decided upon a starting bid of $25,000 for the four-door, 2001 Signature Series Lincoln Town Car, which has fewer than 14,000 miles on the odometer and boasts a light-parchment gold exterior, a light beige interior, an etched brass plaque bearing the investor's signature and a personalized "Thrifty" number plate.

"We auctioned off a wallet some years back and got $215,000 for it, so we're hoping since this weighs about 4,000 times what the wallet did, you can figure out what we're hoping to get," Buffett.

The auction begins at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 12 and ends at the same time on Friday, Sept. 22.

Happy bidding! :)

No broadband!

Dear fellow readers,

Sorry about not hearing from me for quite a while. I have just moved house and everything is in a mess at the moment. Plus, I have no broadband in my new house yet; it will take another 1 week or so to be installed. So, you may be hearing from me infrequently. Having said that, I will try to update my blog as often as I could.

If you have anything interesting to share, please email me at:

Happy investing,
Dah Hui Lau (David)
