Ramadhan Bahagia

Tidak terlalu yakin menulis ini di muka publik. Tapi hanya mencoba melakukan apa yang almarhum selalu bilang  dan okay, sepertinya itu tidak akan apa-apa, meureun.

***

Apa yah itu, gesture sekeliling khas jelang Ramadhan, oh iya, ziarah kubur, orang – orang saling bersalaman, diskon sembako dimana-mana, mudik, dan lain – lain yang akhirnya menjadi satu rasa, bahagia.

Katanya ustadz, orang beriman itu setiap ramadhan tiba pasti akan bahagia, semakin tebal imannya, semakin tebal juga bahagianya. Inilan bulan bahagia. Alasannya karena ibadahnya sama, tapi pahalanya menjadi berganda-ganda. Para sahabat konon selalu menangis jika meninggalkan bulan bahagia. Surga pasti sudah disiapkan untuk mereka. Terbaik.

And ME?.

Menyambut Ramadhan seperti hal tahun kemarin, tahun kemarinnya lagi – tahun kemarinnya lagi. Hari – hari berjalan seperti biasa. Bedanya, tiap tahun orang yang disayangi menghilang satu persatu, dipanggil waktu.

Semua itu, mungkin bisa dijadikan alasan kenapa bahagia ramadhan itu semakin sini terus menguap dan akhirnya menipis. Atau juga memang karena, iam not religious enought to get some blithe.

Sad 🙁

Lucu, ramadhan ada didepan mata. Tapi jiwanya entah dimana.

Sad 🙁

Phewwww….

But however. Ramadhan is ramadhan, pengen ngucapin selamat bulan Ramadhan, selamat berpuasa. Bersyukurlah sebanyak-banyaknya if you has been fullfilled with happines, percaya deh, tidak semua orang mendapatkan itu.

Dan untuk yang seperti saya, siapapun itu, dimanapun itu, yang sedang bersedih. Keep stiffen up our upper lips yak. Bukan untuk kita, untuk orang – orang disekeliling kita yang tersisa. Mereka pantas dapat bahagia dari kita-kita.

🙂

Yakin kok, entah dijelang Ramadhan yang mana. Kita akan seperti mereka. Yang berbahagia di Ramadhan bahagia.

🙂

Every Trading Has Postion

A young and pretty lady posted this on a popular forum:

Title: What should I do to marry a rich guy?

 I’m going to be honest of what I’m going to say here. I’m 25 this year. I’m very pretty, have style and good taste. I wish to marry a guy with $500k annual salary or above. You might say that I’m greedy, but an annual salary of $1M is considered only as middle class in New York. My requirement is not high. Is there anyone in this forum who has an income of $500k annual salary? Are you all married?

I wanted to ask: what should I do to marry rich persons like you?

Among those I’ve dated, the richest is $250k annual income, and it seems that this is my upper limit. If someone is going to move into high cost residential area on the west of New York City Garden(?), $250k annual income is not enough. I’m here humbly to ask a few questions:

 1. Where do most rich bachelors hang out? (Please list down the names and addresses of bars, restaurant, gym)

 2. Which age group should I target?

 3. Why most wives of the riches are only average-looking? I’ve met a few girls who don’t have looks and are not interesting, but they are able to marry rich guys.

 4. How do you decide who can be your wife, and who can only be your girlfriend? (my target now is to get married)

A philosophical reply from someone from Wall Street.

Dear Ms. Pretty,

I have read your post with great interest. Guess there are lots of girls out there who have similar questions like yours. Please allow me to analyse your situation as a professional investor.

My annual income is more than $500k, which meets your requirement, so I hope everyone believes that I’m not wasting time here. From the standpoint of a business person, it is a bad decision to marry you.

The answer is very simple, so let me explain. Put the details aside, what you’re trying to do is an exchange of “beauty” and “money” : Person A provides beauty, and Person B pays for it, fair and square. However, there’s a deadly problem here, your beauty will fade, but my money will not be gone without any good reason.

The fact is, my income might increase from year to year, but you can’t be prettier year after year. Hence from the viewpoint of economics, I am an appreciation asset, and you are a depreciation asset. It’s not just normal depreciation, but exponential depreciation.

If that is your only asset, your value will be much worse 10 years later. By the terms we use in Wall Street, every trading has a position, dating with you is also a “trading position”. If the trade value dropped we will sell it and it is not a good idea to keep it for long term – same goes with the marriage that you wanted.

It might be cruel to say this, but in order to make a wiser decision any assets with great depreciation value will be sold or “leased”. Anyone with over $500k annual income is not a fool; we would only date you, but will not marry you.

I would advice that you forget looking for any clues to marry a rich guy. And by the way, you could make yourself to become a rich person with $500k annual income.This has better chance than finding a rich fool. 

Hope this reply helps.
