Sindy Teo's insight:

 Singapore may gain from its first-mover position for business trusts in the region, market watchers say, even if historical performance is mixed and amid a recent dip in sentiment for yield plays.More investors are investing into Singapore than other Asia market.

Mr Jeyarajah of Goldman Sachs said: "I think Singapore, because of the business trust regime, is probably well positioned to capture more yield-oriented issuers and more yield- oriented investors than other markets."

"It is still at the moment probably the most recognised yield or balanced return market in Asia," he added.

This shows the trust Singapore gains as a global market,in the community from investors,thus developing Singapore to be a part of global community.

This article talks about a family in New York who went to snoop around a yard and got themselves a bowl which no one else see any good in.They treated the bowl with good care and placed it on their mantle piece.Recently,this family got curious and sent it for an  auction,unexpectedly,that bowl was sold at 2.2 Million.Just an ordinary bowl something where no one else see in,actually a beauty in disguise.

I can see that the bowl which was initially worth just $3 to majority of New Yorkers, actually had a tremendous value of $2.2 million. This allowed the bowl at the cost of a rag, became riches at an auction. I think that different people see the value of different things differently. I wonder how people in Singapore would see this bowl, how valueable one might find it.

This is my insight of the article using the thinking routine of see-think-wonder.I see a normal bowl which a family bought at a yard.But when they send it for auction,the bowl actually turned out to be a 'treasure' that they had bought and it fetched a price of $2.2 million.I think that the people who find this no value,it's at thier own loss.I wonder how many people in this world would ever judge things by it's image.
