I was flipping channels last night on Astro (Malaysia's pay TV) when I chanced upon a segment on Adam Khoo, on TVIQ channel. It was a program called 'The Millionaire Makers'. For the uninitiated, Adam Khoo is a Singaporean entrepreneur, a best selling author, peak performance trainer and a self-made millionaire by the age of 26.
From the program, I learnt that Adam Khoo's a huge Star Wars fan. He even owns the Darth Vader mask with the voice changer and saber which he gladly demonstrated in front of the camera. He bought it in Malaysia for around RM 500. He goes on to tell us that when as a kid that he used to have loads of Star Wars toys but of course his mother has threw them all away.
He confesses to enjoying playing Playstation games and was shown playing some Tiger Woods golf game.
At one point he proudly shows off his huge collection of books. I chuckled when I saw some 'Idiot's Guide to ...' books in the collection. He picked one book out from the shelf to show to the camera and my heart skipped a beat when I saw that it's 'Buffetology' by Mary Buffet, the exact same edition that I have. He must have bought it around the same time that I did. Well, but he's now a millionaire and I'm still almost where I was when I bought the book.
We also see that he drives a sporty BMW (hmm, that's not being very frugal) but interestingly his home is pretty tidy ... and bare (I guess that's him being frugal).
Well, I'm glad I came across this little profile segment of Adam Khoo. Got to know some interesting facts and background about my favorite guru. I will keep an eye out for the repeats. Missed the first few minutes.
