Genting Splash, Genting Theme Park, Malaysia

I love swimming. Swimming is a good non-impact exercise. But Genting Splash is not quite for swimming. The heated swimming pool theme park is located inside indoor theme park. If you are first world hotel customer, you will get much discount.
Genting Splash is not as big as A Famosa or Sunway Water Park. It is much smaller. But to keeep your children occupied, you can have a visit.

Money Black Hole

Money Black Hole
When you receive your salary, you cannot determine where your money goes. In the end, we finish all the salary with only minimum amount for savings and investment.
1) We need to draft where our money goes in and out(housing loan, car loan, fuel, etc)
2) List top 10 where our money goes
3) Develop strategy to reduce the payment (refinance, full settlement etc)
4) Channel the savings into investment
5) List all our spending for month
6) Repeat step 2, 3 and 4.
The goal is to ensure passive income that can suppport your lifestyle.
