National Museum of Singapore
I was visiting last week for The Treasures of Vacheron Constantin which exhibits some 170+ antique watches at the basement of the National Museum of Singapore. An excellent exhibit, not to mention its free admission! A great way to spend the hot afternoon in Singapore!     
posted a Quick Tip about Gold. August 09, 2011
Gold
In just less than 2 months, it has moved from a low of around $1500 to $1750+ (as of this writing) Gold is said to have become the unofficial reserve currency of the world! Uptrend intact with minor corrections along the way. Investors are loading up gold despite the fact that it's very much overbought at current level. Goldman Sach has put an immediate price target of $1860 while I do think that …

Gold
It amounts to cash, need i say more? It's called Yellow Gold in the Orient but when it comes to Gold, I prefer White Gold :-) When it comes to cash, I don't really care which form they comes in as long as it's valid!

Jade
I didn't get to wear jade until very recently despite the fact that I was given a real good piece of jade pendant at a young age, possible around 5 or 6. All these years, I felt it's well too old fashioned. Jade is something only people at a certain age wears, I thought.               So, why am I wearing it now? Well, it's been sitting …

Chanel
I don't use that much make up but if you do, Chanel has amazing colors each season. Chanel's eyeshadows are wonderful shades and its lipsticks come in vibrant colors and smooth feel. I love its loose powder as well.

Karl Voutilainen
A Finn watchmaker based in Switzerland, Kari Voutilainen is the answer to your prayer if you're looking for one-of-a-kind watches. The artisan watchmaker only makes few watches and each watch may take as many as 3 years to make. Prices range above US$50,000 to a few hundred thousands!

Chopard L.U.C. all in one
More of an investment rather than a watch, this 150-anniversary timepiece by Chopard comes at a high price tag of HK$2.5 million (around US$300k) ! It is a limited edition enhanced with a tourbillion & chronometer-certified by the Controle Officiel Suisse des Chronometres.

Gold
Prices will keep going up as a hedge against the weak dollar. Whether to buy it or not is up to individuals and how much spare cash you have. Afterall, all investments should be made because you have spare money and not because you are greedy. Gold is expected to go up to US$2000 or more by many capital market experts. Adjusted for inflation, the former high of gold is supposed to be US$2300+. If …

Akoya Pearl
Akoya pearls are cultured pearls and less treasured than South Sea pearls which are rarer. The fact that they are more common are equally reflected in the pricing of these pearls. Pearls have no resale value in the market unless it is one of those rare collectors item. It was said that "Single natural pearls are often sold as a collector's item, or set as centerpieces in unique jewelry. Very few matched …

Diamond
It's been said diamond is forever and is a girl's best friend. After having seen some of the divorces in the world and some of the biggest investment banks gone bust, I think I'd consider diamond a friend indeed! Out of the many investments I hold, it is diamond that's constantly by my side. Well, because I wear it daily, that's why. It's just a small pendant but it does keep …

Gold
Ok, I'm not trying to be vain or anything, but I grew up with gold as my play toys. Or rather, I love to slip them into my bedroom and sleep with them. Necklaces, bracelets, rings... jewelries of all kinds. You see, I was blessed with a very capable grandma who was a goldsmith. I used to live with her during my childhood and all I really needed to do was to open the cabinet while the adults were …
