Southbound New Developments? Is it that Good? Im not surprise the world is filled with people who do not exactly understand what is the meaning of "INVESTMENT". So i am here to share my experience with you to enlighten your pathway to Property Inv Read more ... estment. Never make a single mistake or u'll be dragged for a decade until recovery! Oh yess... A Decade! Everyday people keep asking me about Bangi, Nilai, Kajang, Semenyih, Sg Buloh, Rawang, and last but not least "ISKANDAR" ISsshhhh!!!!!!..... all these are new developments area although there many GIANT developer went in to build mega township or community or G&G or Luxury condo or whatever u can call it.. "IT IS NOT A PROVEN MARKET" means there are "RISK" First of all, i have to clear your mind WHY these giant developers move out of town to do developments. Even if BIG developers move out of town to do development, does it mean that specific project property will make money? Developers have to move out to places like Rawang, Bangi, Nilai, Sepang, Semenyih, etc "FOR A REASON" which is because they are doing "BUSINESS" and they "CANNOT STOP" . They are GLC, they are Listed Co. Eg, SP Setia, Gamuda, IJM, I&P, UEM, YTL, Lion Group, Eco world, IGB, Dijaya, etc.. Developers only care about their "Performance" aka "PROFITS" rather than contributing profit to end consumer, frankly speaking they dont give a "S..T" even if the purchasers are making money or not. Firstly, They have to move out of Klang Valley because there are "NO more land" in town or central but they cant stop operations, so they gotta keep moving outbound. Lets take an example for this famous hot topic nowadays "SEMENYIH". Our famous Property mogul "Tan Sri Liew Kee Sin" ex CEO and founder of SP Setia that was eventually acquired by PNB once succesfully built a dream city with the name of "Setia Alam Eco Park City". Today venturing into the South, SEMENYIH. Followed by other developer I&P, Lion Group, UEM, SP. setia, Dijaya, UEM, and our famous China developer the Country Garden Group. Each of them respectively owns hundreds or thousands of acres of land, because the land cost is "CHEAP" in Semenyih. With such a huge size of development lands they are able to construct Multi-Billions GDV (Gross Development Value) projects over the next 5-10years with billions in Profit margin. Those lands were as cheap as RM10psf when they discreetly enter the market 5-8years ago while today its merely RM50psf+-. Meanwhile, in KL or Selangor, there are still boutique lands with sizes between 2,3,4,5 acres just right for mix integrated development as in retail, comercial + condos/sohos/studios, but why would these Giant developers stop concentrating in KL downtown or PJ Selangor? The reason is due to the Increasing land cost today which is so expensive that if the developer buy a piece of land, thus immediately plan a development rightaway and sell the project, they are NOT PROFITABLE. That is why even these developers buy lands today in KL they wont launch the development today but 3-4years later with a price of 30-40% higher than today. So, they hold and wait. SCENARIO 1 - Assuming a 3acre freehold land in ARA DAMANSARA is selling at RM450psf equaivalent to a total of 43,560(acre) x 3 = RM130,680sf x RM450psf = RM58million. - With a 3 acre land size, plot ratio of 1:4, total development sf = 130,680sf x4 = 522,720sf total builtable. - it can be a slim and tall building or a fat and low building, the total built up must not exceed 522,720sf because of "Plot Ratio" and development Zoning issues. - With a total build up of 522,720sf, 70% is net sellable sf = 365,904sf. - 365,904sf assuming 1unit at the size of 1,000sf 3bedder, the developer can construct 365unit of 2 block condominium. - assuming 3 acre can develop 2 block condo of 365units at 1000sf size at RM700psf - 1 unit of 1000sf condo in Ara Damansara is selling at RM700,000 isint it a reasonable price for today 2014 market? - total 365unit x RM700,000 = RM255million GDV. - with a land cost of RM58million, a developer can only achieve RM255million GDV with a net profit of approximately 20% at "RM50million" over a 5-6years planning is not a wise move. - so developer will hold the land, and launch the project later in 2017 when MRT is completed and sell the property at RM900psf for higher profit margin. - Sounds legit...? SCENARIO 2 - with RM58million budget as a developer to buy land, - Semenyih land cost is still cheap. While big parcels at can be still acquired at RM20psf. - RM20psf x 43,560(acre) = RM871,000/acre - RM58million/RM871,000 = 66acre. -*with the same amount of budget of RM58mil a developer can buy 66acre instead of 3acre in Ara Damansara. - assuming 1 acre can build 15units of 24x75sf double storey house. - 15units x 66acre = 990 units (divided into 5phase over 5years) - Each unit selling at RM500,000 on average x 990units = RM495million. - RM495million @ 20% profit margin = RM100million This is the reason Why all the giant developers shook hands and concentrate all their mega developments into Semenyih is because of "Branding Marriage Value" together with all other Giants brands. It became a township, for all the Southern People who cannot afford to move Northbound, to own a dream home South, so these young couples or newly weds gotta move Southbound becuase of "AFFORDABILITY" issue. Meanwhile, Not many elites or seasonal investor will wana go into these places (Semenyih) because it is not an "INVESTOR's HEAVEN". It is a product that a family need it as a "Shelter" rather than a product an Investor want it as a "Investment Vehicle". Why investor DO NOT want Semenyih property? Answer "NO JOB = NO RENTAL" To be continue........................... -End- JL™

Eugene Well, that straightened a lot of things out. The walk from the Motel 6 to the fancy hotel where the California Bar Convention is being held, is just over 1 mile, mostly level. My sweetie had calculated that as this was a seaport, it would be cool, an Read more ... d so she packed my sports coat to wear so I would look like a lawyer dressing down. I left the motel about 10:15 with my black walking shoes, and black socks, jeans, white dress shirt, and tan sports coat. I do not seem to have a hat. It was warm when I walked out the door, and even tho I kept to the shady side of the street (sorry, Carter Family fans but Keep on the Sunny Side is not good advice for San Diego). I hadn't gone two blocks before I took off the sports coat and within another I had my shirt untucked from my pants. Still when I arrived at the convention I was sweating, and continued to sweat for the next half hour or so. I got my official CalBar tote bag, convention booklet, itinerary cards, and ticket to the Scalia lunch, put my sports coat in the bag first then loaded in my Bar accessories. The hotel's convention space is vast, located on 4 floors, and the map the bar gave out is not oriented as the hotel is. It took a few minutes to find my Prosecutor's Discovery Duties lecture. At the same time and place I found my friend Allan Dollison. You may recall him as one of the 4 candidates for DA in Humboldt county. He was in his full suit, and clearly had not been walking a mile outside. We chatted, and took strategic seats at the lecture next to the door so we could bolt if the lecture seemed to be cutting into the start of the lunch. I left during question time, to ensure we had good seats. I much prefer watching the speaker rather than the big screens, and if you sit in back of the banquet room, it's the screens or the backs of a lot of heads if you look for the speaker. By luck, and careful placement, I was the 1st person in the right hand door when they (finally) opened the banquet room, and I got us seats in the second row of tables. The first row is where the dignitaries and sponsors sit. Now these tables are round, and seat 8, but they are in rows - or perhaps semi circles - just the same. Allan showed up, and we were part way through the rather good salad when Justice Scalia arrived with a good part of the California Supreme Court, and some security detail people (all I saw were men, but that may just mean the women in the detail blended in better than the guys in suits who never sat down and kept surveilling the room). The entree was a rather large and quite good chunk of beef with some potatoes, and two dried whole carrots. Very cuisineish. I would say that my $49 got me a much better lunch than I got for either the speech by Jeffrey Tobin, or Morris Dees. No chicken this time. The center piece of the table was an arrangement of 8 copies of "Reading Law" a book on interpreting statutes written by the Justice and Bryan Garner. Both spoke, and Garner was not a ghost. Scalia is obvious through out the book. These were party favors, free with the lunch, and my copy will prove quite useful. Justice Scalia is a "textualist" which means he believes the law says what it means, or rather, what it meant when passed, and that looking beyond the law to things like legislative intent is bad practice. His point is that in a democracy the people write the laws, and the judges do not. I have to agree. He also says this idea can lead to some results which the interpreter does not like, and I also have to agree. Still, read aright, the California law does not preclude marijuana sales for a profit under certain circumstances, a result that I, but not the Appellate Courts, do like. The basic idea is that if the law means what it always meant, then you are more likely to know what is legal and what is not, than if the judge gets to bring in aspects of social thinking that are not found in the law itself. (I.e. marijuana sales for profit are bad, so despite the law, they are illegal). I liked his presentation, and learned more from it than I did from the lectures I attended for credit, and best yet, his book can be cited in court as an "authoritative document." So when Allan decided to get his copy signed by the authors, I went along with it and got my copy signed too. I was going to say something to the Justice, but he was chatting with Allan while signing my book and then we had to move on. Something about the Crawford decision (look it up). The afternoon classes were about electronic discovery, and pertained almost exclusively to battles between corporate giants, or involving them. If you have 1 million documents to examine, what is the most effective way to do that? (Use a computer AI which you have taught to discover relevance in documents.) The speakers did their best but at its heart e-discovery is intensely boring in the same way that the law of corporations is intensely boring. How did I pass the bar, back in 1999, with that attitude? That year they didn't ask any questions about corporate law. "Whew", I said, and passed the bar. Then I went to the exhibits hall to see what wonders were available to the modern lawyer. Standing in the free food line, I heard my name, and looked up to see Mordecai, whom I had met when he was a DDA in Crescent City. He has seen the light, and is a defense attorney in SF now and we had a good chat over salmon pasties. The exhibits were, like exhibits at computer shows, mostly uninteresting. Some had large crowds, others had presenters who exhibited that dreadful loneliness that comes when you have bought exhibit space, had a booth designed, stocked it with your products, found someone attractive to join you in the booth, only to discover that few if any of the hundreds of presumably prime customers for your product, are interested in even coming over to get the free candy or luggage tag, much less sign up. It is heartbreaking to see, and I always look the other way. I used to try giving the boothie a friendly smile but it is like responding to the greeting of that person in odd clothing lying on the sidewalk, it only leads to either being trapped by your politeness into wasting everyone's time, or doing something you don't want to do, just so you can leave. But the CEB booth. Ah, there I struck pay dirt. I got a two binder set on CEQA law, and a thick book on representing non-citizens, both of which pertain to an increasing part of my practice. The grateful boothie offered me a free, gigantic coffee mug, which I turned down, a large clip which I took, and a luggage tag, which I really needed. They'll ship the books, I couldn't carry them back, my suitcase is already straining the zippers. Having had dinner I walked back to the motel, looking at the well kept small parks, the interestingly paved sidewalks, the interesting architecture, and the scattering of homeless people sleeping in the recesses. I saw one rather large structure built around a shopping cart, the owner of which gave me a friendly wave as I passed by. I waved back. My shirt was out, and unbuttoned, I was carrying a tote bag full of some kind of stuff, my remaining hair was getting wild and I was J-walking. Did I appear to be a kindred soul? I probably am. Tomorrow I have 4 lectures. Two on CEQA and two on DUI, and I believe Captain Motion will be giving at least one of them. A good day. I hope to go see a client site afterwards. So, thanks for reading so far. I hope your evening and night are enjoyable and refreshing. May you always be one of those fortunate enough to walk on the sidewalk and sleep in a bed. Good night.

Lou A real-life story that transcends believability: As other writers have mentioned to me, sometimes life manifests situations so improbable that, if you were to write them into a story, no reader would accept them as plausible. And yet... I walked t Read more ... hrough the dealer room at Reno's WorldCon, showing my girlfriend Kelly around, marveling at the artist displays, looking around to see if I could spot Bob Eggleton, a tremendous artist that I've only met via Facebook, never in real life. My eye lights upon a grinning, elfin woman with graying hair and the eyes Yoda only WISHED he had had, as expressive as a sunset. She spies me and calls out my name and wraps me in a hug that conveys love and adoration and respect, then calls over her husband, Joe Haldeman. Gay Haldeman is an angel among people, and she has an encyclopedic memory, knows everybody, LOVES everybody and is one of the nicest folks I know. Without my being able to figure out how, she manages to convince me that she considers me one of the most important people she's ever met. I know, in my soul, that I am just another cog in the gears that permeate her life, and a small, insignificant cog at that, but she has that magic touch, that personality that the best of the best seem to have. Joe smiles at me and shakes my hand, I introduce them both to Kelly and Gay says, a hand upon my forearm, "you will join us for lunch, won't you?" I glance at Kelly, she nods and I say "of course!" A rare cloud crosses Gay's unlined brow. "Oh. Do you mind if I invite another person to join us?" Well, I had been hoping for some one-on-one time with Joe and Gay, but any friend of hers... "Sure," I reply. "The more the merrier!" Gay's cloud dissipates and sunlight radiates from her again. "Great! I'm sure Larry will love to meet you." Larry...that's such a familiar name, especially the way she says it. I open my mouth to clarify, because, after all, there is no way it could be... "Oh, here he is!" Gay cries out, grinning, looking past my shoulder. I turn and, in true Ewok form, there strides one of the greatest giants of SF-dom, Larry Niven. It is him. Of course it is him. He'd passed me in the hallway at Denvention, a couple years earlier, and I'd said, upon seeing him, "Shoot! I was hoping to attend your panel!" Without breaking stride, he had shot back. "Well, you missed it." And then he had walked on. So we walk, the Haldemans and I and Kelly, with Larry Niven beside me. I'm trying to be cool, but this is the man from whose brain all those books I read in high school had come. He's the Ringworld Engineer Deluxe, the guy that invented the Mote, this is LARRY FREAKING NIVEN! " "You're a writer," says Larry to me. (See? I'm calling him Larry. Like we grew up together. Like we're old pals. Like I have any damn right to be walking beside him, this ordinary-looking man whose prose has put me on the badly-colored carpet of a Reno convention center, walking toward an unimpressive cafe in an adjacent casino.) "Tell me a story," he finishes. I take two careful, measured steps. I think of the works I've written to date, the stories I've excised from my fertile imagination, the tortured words I've yanked out of my brain and through my fingers and onto the page, the single story I'd sold. Worthless. In the company of a god, my best work is fool's gold, iron pyrite glittering with false richness, not worthy of discussion. "I'm sorry, Larry," I stammer, after a while. "I'm a little star-struck. My brain isn't working quite right." "It's okay," he says, patting my shoulder. "Happens all the time. Give it a moment." I walk alongside Larry, watching the carpet flow beneath our feet, and we walk into the casino, my hand clutching Kelly's. We sit down for lunch and I listen to Larry and Joe talk about old times, laughing and reminiscing, and I slowly relax, slowly began to process that what's happening around me, this august company I'm part of, is because of Gay, not because of anything I've ever done. She's the catalyst, the one that keeps her eyes peeled for the spark, that ineffable quality in a writer, just starting out, that holds some semblance of promise. And, like any spark, the spark she sees is tenuous, hesitant and should simply wink out. She captures it, fans it, finds a home for it and nurtures it into a small flame. Then she brings that flame into the firelight and welcomes it home. I'm not sitting with Joe Haldeman and Larry Niven because I'm some sort of brilliant writer. I'm sitting with them because Gay believes in me. I lean across Kelly and catch Gay's attention while Larry reminds Joe of something arcane and brilliant. "Gay," I whisper. "Thank you." She peers at me through her glasses and a warm smile crosses her face. "Thank you for joining us, Lou." She turns to Kelly. "And you too, Kelly." She looks at us for a minute and then turns her face back to Joe. Her eyes go soft as she looks at the man she loves. I squeeze Kelly's hand and we eat our lunch, in the company of giants.

Michael 17 years ago, Dodgers came to SF in mid-Sept up by 2 games, for a 2-games series at the Stick. In the first game, Bonds hit a 2-run HR in the 1st and Woody pitched 7 innings of 1-run ball as Giants won 2-1. Second game, I cut out of my job at CNET f Read more ... or a day game that ended with the famous Brian Johnson HR to win it for SF in 12th. That was the loudest I'd ever heard the Stick. Giants were even by end of series and went on to win division by 2 games. Tomorrow LA comes to SF up two games. I'm thinking Giants could be atop the division Sunday night. Arriba Gigantes!
