It’s Christmas. I’ve been thinking long and hard about what would be the greatest present that I can give to everyone who reads this blog? After much rumination, I decided that the best present I can give is a piece of advice on how to have enough financial resources to meet all of your material needs for the rest of your life.
I got this piece of advice from a friend’s Facebook post. It was originally in Chinese. I shall translate it into English here. It goes like this:
If you can go back in time to 1997, don’t do anything else except this – go to Hangzhou in China. Look for this person who looks like an alien by the name of Jack Ma. Treat him to drinks, the best food at the poshest restaurants, bring him to the most high-class KTVs, find pretty young ladies to surround him and make him happy. In other words, become his great buddy. If you can do that, then you will be obscenely rich today.
Alas, you cannot go back in time. But as fate would have it, you are now in 2015. That’s right. you still have a golden opportunity right now. Because you know me. Just come and look for me. When you are free (and you should make yourself free), treat me to drinks, the best food at the poshest restaurants, bring me to the most high-class KTVs, find pretty young ladies to surround me and make me happy. In other words, become my great buddy. Do that, and ten years later, you will have never need to worry about any of your material desires.
Isn’t that such great advice? Isn’t that the best Christmas present ever?
So. What are you waiting for? Time to act! I’m free tonight.
Merry Christmas y’all!
