After looking for so many IDs in April, we finally cut the list down to just 2 IDs. Considering that both IDs were able to give a final quotation according to what we wanted and within our budget, it was a tough decision (they were both really nice as well). We decided to go with someone who was familiar with us so that we can communicate better and expect that he caters his professional judgement and experience to make our dream house.
We also went into KL for a short trip just last week. It was a well-deserved break for the both of us. Although the trip was to acquire things for the wedding, we really enjoyed the trip and the people we met along the way.

In my US account: April saw the expiry of NFLX, GOOGL and AMZN netting me a profitable month. I reorganized my calculation method so the numbers look a bit funny… but I promise from here on out, it will be calculated similarly. Because this post came out late, I can give a sneak preview that May earnings won’t be so nice to look at because I tried some earnings play but failed to monitor the situation and exit while I was ahead. But if all goes well, it should still be a positive month.
Overall capital gain YTD: +15.7%
