Part 2 – Financial Planning with ASB, OD and Card Credit (Perancangan Kewangan dengan ASB, OD dan Kad Kredit)

<Get latest and more info about financial at>

First I heard about Aziz CFP was from my friend, who actually heard from one of Aziz’s client. Because the story was not directly from the Aziz’s client, I didn’t get clearly how financial planning with Aziz will improve my financial status. Actually my friend who told me the story also couldn’t clearly understand what it is about.

What he told to me mostly like this. Apply OD (Overdraft), draw cash from Credit Card for your monthly expenses, then put all your salary into OD. The first thing that I was very concerned is about draw cash from Credit Card. By right we should avoid the CC.

Since my friend couldn’t explain much, plus he also didn’t really understand how it works, so I did research from internet. And I found one forum explaining more details. Let me summarize as below.

  1. Prepare some money in your ASB. Either from your saving or apply personal loan if you don’t have any saving.
  2. Convert ASB to Sijil, then apply OD with the Sijil.
  3. Once your OD approved, settle all your major loan.
  4. Bank in all of your income into OD account.
  5. Few days after that, withdraw 30~40% of your income’s amount from OD and put into your ASB account.
  6. Use Card Credit for your monthly expenses and must be within SD (Statement Date) and DD (Due Date).
  7. Pay amount used by CC on next month use OD.
  8. Duplicate from step 1 again every month.

Doesn’t make sense huh?…Actually they had explained more details, but I don’t want to share all the story here to avoid you guys get confuse and wrongly manage your financial. Financial planning is not something that you can try and error. Even 1 day will give you a different result.

So I tried to figure out how with my financial status. I did a simulation, via excel, via flowchart, but I still can’t figure out how this can improve my financial. And you have to apply all steps with specific amount and date…depends on your financial status. Finally I started to forget about it and keep all my research and simulation into one folder in my PC…to be continue…

Part 1 – Experience with MLM

<Get latest and more info about financial at>

In Malaysia, everybody knows what MLM is. It stands for Multi Level Marketing. How this business influences Malaysian people?…including me.

Since I first start working in 2003, until before I get married, my salary was just good enough for me. Even I can’t save much, but I still could make some saving. But it changed after I get married. My commitments were become different. There were a lot of things that we need when we are in a family. Then I realized that my current salary is not good enough for us to get better life. So what we did?

I started looking for side income. But I couldn’t do part time job at that time. I was an Engineer at one of Semiconductor Company in Kuala Langat. I always turn back late, even without OT…too bad huh!…but that was my first job…biasala, semangat lebih…haha.

So what we could do to get side income is by doing MLM. No need huge modal, with less than RM100, you can become a member. I joined few MLM…start from Elken, Amway, Network 21, and then Uptrend. The last one was JAI…most people said JAI is not MLM, but now the company’s account has been frozen by Bank Negara and charged illegal. I heard the company has been charged because they doing MLM business without a proper license. So now I considered JAI as MLM too.

What we get after few years with MLM? We lost our time, we lost few k especially with JAI, but we got a good lesson. In fact, none of my uplines in each MLM are really success with MLM after few years. Its not easy as what they keep said to me huh. Now I really 100% don’t believe with MLM or any other business that similar with it.

What I’m doing now? I’m doing financial planning, and hope can share with you guys how I clearing my debts. To be continue…

Financial Education

<Get latest and more info about financial at>

There are 3 types of educations.

Scholastic Education

This education teaches us to read, write and do math. It is very important education.

Professional Education

This education teaches you how to work for money. Such as doctors, lawyers, accountants, plumbers, and electricians, automobile mechanics.

Financial Education

This is the education where you learn to have money work for you rather than you work for money. Have you heard a person paid more than RM10k per month, but do not have saving? Doesn’t matter how much you earn every month, but how you can manage your financial, and how much you could save. And this third education is not taught in most schools, colleagues or universities. So where you can have this education? The answer is read a book, get advise from financial planner…or read this blog.
