    An inescapable path to becoming a successful investor is to learn how to become a lifelong student. Learn from other investor's success and mistakes. Learn how they made the money, not how they spent it. Place value on value, buy assets that you know are underpriced and sell them for a higher value. Always have healthy Skpeticism which is very hard to acquire as the world is full of malice. Lastly but not the least is to sharpen your analytical ability as being able to analyze what is going on is very crucial to becoming a good investor.

Close to 6.5% rebates on dining

I have held this card for quite a long time and one thing I like about the card is the fact that it is used for CapitaLand malls and they are almost everywhere. So I enjoy dining taking advantage of the 10x rewards merchants to accumulate the points faster. Imagine getting close to 6.5% rebates on dining. Not to forget their sign up bonus of $60 rebates in vouchers when you spend $1,500. That's a 4% rebate excluding the points you will earn which will convert into vouchers too.
