In addition, I would like to thank my MP Mr Tharman Shanmugaratnam, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Finance for his kind assistance when I first started out.
Throughout my journalism career, I have met many wonderful people who have given me inputs that have helped me acquire knowledge on the regional property market. Without them, writing this book would not have been possible. Special thanks to Hazeline Hoo at Weber Shandwick Kuala Lumpur, Q Akashah at Ogilvy Singapore, Mr Jeff Foo at the Institute of Estate Agents, Jules Kay at Property Report South East Asia and Marsha Tan at Iskandar Regional Development Authority (IRDA).
I would also like to thank Lisa M at iProperty.com Singapore for inviting me to speak at the numerous property talks and expos. Special shout out to Stuart Chng and Darren Ong at EastLivingGroup for their huge support. Last but not least to Getty Goh for the opportunity to co-write this book with him.
