1. Shoppers with Strong Religious Beliefs Spend Less and Make Fewer Impulse Purchases – Harvard Business Review

What an insightful read! The study was conducted in the US, but the sample size is big and the research was thorough. I believe the conclusions are applicable to our Malaysian context, too.

If I were to self-rate myself, religiously speaking, from a murtad-to-ustazah scale, I’m probably something like a 6 or 7? Does this mean if I get more religious my financial life will improve further? Penny for your thoughts.

1. Consumer Reports Tested 73 Sunscreens, and This Formula Got a Perfect Score – Byrdie

You already know how important it is to wear sunscreen, but not all of them are created equal. Some formulas give next-to-nothing protection even if applied – a big money waster, if you ask me. The honour for the perfect sunscreen formula apparently goes to a product called Anthelios Clear Skin Dry Touch Sunscreen, produced by the company La Roche Posay. It costs $20 for 50ml, so I don’t think I’ll get it (even if it’s available in Malaysia).

BUT there are near-perfect formulas that are a lot more affordable! Anyone know where I can get these in Malaysia? Share in the comments section!

  • Sport Sunscreen Lotion SPF 50 by Equate ($5 for 237ml);
  • Quik Gel Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 50 by Bull Frog ($9 for 147ml);
  • Water Babies and Ultra Guard by Coppertone ($7 for 237ml);
  • Pure & Free Baby Mineral Sunscreen by Neutrogena ($11 for 88ml).

They tend to be the same people who rank transparency, efficiency and financial inclusiveness high in their belief system. Not all of them (some just got in it for the moneh), but many of them. And for that reason, I support the industry.

In the interest of promoting the cryptocurrency and blockchain in Malaysia, I have compiled Malaysia-based companies, associations and groups you should know. Note that this list is not exhaustive – I might have missed some – but the popular ones with active members are here. If you know of any more, please comment and I’ll add it in.
