This actually reiterate the importance of people that we associated ourselves with during teenage. I practically follow Azhar's daily schedule of waking up at 6am, go for a jog, comeback home watch news, have breakfast and study.... two hours later, break, read the paper and study!! then break, lunch and study!! Then break and study.. then break and study and break and study... goodness in contrast to my pre-london lifestyle of girls.. party.. girls.. party.. girls... party. So there are always the good side of any downturn. CML actually shaped up and changes my life.
I first bought and played the stock market with Azhar Mohamad at the age of 16 years old. We bought the British Midlands electricity board that went for Initial Public Offerings (IPO) and made I think triple (or was it double) our investment. Buying IPO shares at that time was affordable with only a denomination of 100 shares per lot. When I graduated with an honours degree in Economics from the University of Buckingham, I quickly call Azhar Mohamad and asked for the best platform for the best exposure into the corporate sector and Azhar Mohamad whom at that juncture, was attached to the Securities Commission, the God of the corporate sector said, without a doubt Corporate Finance (CF) at the COMMERCE INTERNATIONAL MERCHANT BANKERS BERHAD aka CIMB. Immediately I declined the offer from Malaysian International Merchant Bankers Berhad (MIMB) and practically went begging to get into the CF at CIMB and was accepted before I can legally vote at 20 years old but was paid almost half of what MIMB offered. A good exposure and experience is worth more than a short gratification of high paid remuneration but this is a story for another occasion. For now..... not surprising for Azhar Mohamad, he married an accountant and an ex-colleague from the Securities Commission. When he is determine to get something, he will get it.... and finally he got Alina. I do not know after how many years of courtship.
The rest of the story is as follows......
