2008 is an exciting year for me. I was able to build more income streams and therefore increase my overall income compared to the previous year. The best thing is that I worked even less to make that happened. Other than occasional luck, I think it is the effort I put in for the past few years that contributes to the new height.

We (together with my wife) bought two properties in 2008. We are planning to move to our new house probably in February or March this year. I was invited to speak about blogging in Webmaster Gathering hosted by Exabytes at SunTECH. Finally, I published my first book in November and officially became a published author.

This year, I am going to update the Top Money Tips for Malaysians book with more tips and hope to publish a 2nd edition by the end of the year. As usual, tips will be published here first, before being edited to be included in the book, and stuffed with more cartoons from ComicTan. Make sure you subscribe to my newsletter and feed.
