“The lecture could not have come at a better time with the prices of almost all commodities going up. The lecture was interestingly simple and complex. The objective is easy- SAVE MONEY- but the steps are quite difficult. The lecture by Chinkee Tan identified these steps and made it look “ACHIEVABLE”. The right frame of mind “INCOME-SAVING-EXPENSE” rather than “INCOME-EXPENSE-SAVINGS” enabled me to save in 3 months what would usually take me a year. Thanks again to Chinkee.” - Jojo G. Adriano,
