About this blog

La papillion is french for butterfly. This blog chronicles my journey from an amateur in the stock market to where I am today. Have I turned into a beautiful butterfly? I don't know, but I think my metamorphosis is still on-going now :)

Well, the intention to start a blog so that years down the road, I can look back and see what I've learned along the journey. But in life, things seldom go accordingly to plans - and that's a good thing! Along the way, the chatbox - a central feature of this blog - grew into a nice community of like-minded people whom I call my superfriends. Do we have superpowers? Nope, we're ordinary people in life, some struggling with work, some with school, but we choose to spend our limited life here, talking about life's inconveniences and of course, the stock market. In that sense, we're extraordinary people in our own rights.

After some years reading up on the market, I realised that life's lessons can be distilled from the seemingly random prices going on in my watchlist. Thus, it's a natural extension to incorporate what I've learnt about the market onto life in general.

Come, join me in our little community :)
