Our deeply discounted bonds are dy/dx closer to maturity

Wednesday, August 13th, 2008

In June, I wrote about adding some deeply discounted bonds to our investment portfolio. 

They were seedlings of the gaharu tree, which we bought from the Forest Research Institute of Malaysia (FRIM).  It’s been about two and a half months since we got the seedlings.

We have been keeping them in a small makeshift nursery at our goat farm before transplanting them at our rubber smallholding. So far they are looking good.  We intend to transplant them only when they have reached a good height (about my chest height). Otherwise the local goats that somehow manage to get into our rubber smallholding might make a meal of our “bonds”.


The seedlings seem to be outgrowing their present tiny polybags. So now, we are going to transplant them into much bigger polybags. I also have to check with the people of FRIM from whom we bought the seedlings.

Perhaps I can just point them to my blog and see if the picture is good enough for them to do an overall health assessment. 

I’ll keep you posted.
