If the affair happens during our relationship, I will ditch her right in that moment.

There should not be any reasonable cause for having such intimate relationship with another man right?
I am just wondering how Juno's feel like, as you know Gil is picking up on this born-rich guy.

It's like a hatch for Gil, if marriage and then devoice happens, she will share at least half of the total assets as maintenance fee.

I have bought an apartment last Dec for lease, in order to monitor HK market speculation on the Fed rate trend before next FOMC meetings (18 Mar), I will include a weekly ratio on public opinion of Fed rate decrease vs increase published in all printed press in HK.

Fed ratio:
2008 week 1: 912 vs 92 = 9.91
2008 week 2: 1229 vs 120 = 10.24
2008 week 3: 1143 vs 145 = 9.95
2008 week 4: 1844 vs 112 = 16.46 (On 22 Jan unscheduled, fed rate -.75 to 3.50)
2008 week 5: 1839 vs 102 = 18.03 (On 30 Jan, fed rate -.50 to 3.00)

I will sell once the rate trend is turning!

As the apartment is of the low price sector, thus rate flucturation of 30% only affect my monthly settlement of $2-3k.

This investiment is certainly not for the profit, I just want to try the whole process once. Although I welcome if there is any, Hahaha...

My company is on CNY holiday starting from yesterday, but I am still in office now.....ha

I oversee company sec. drawing new org chart, I saw I will be promoted. Should I be celebrating for that?

Actually I don't care for the position, type of work, work-load, etc, the main point is there is something valueable that I can learn, and of course, $$.
