I'd buy a 1Ds and every single L lens Canon has for sale on the market. Then I'd hire a few personal assistants, and then travel around the world, starting by going on safari.

Even better. I would use up to 75% of it and plunk them into major camera manufacturers. E.g. CANON, FUJIFILM, NIKON.

So what do I get in the end? All their cameras in whatever they produce, printing machines and cheap cost to get printing paper and chemicals. It would show them that I am a major investor and might end up sitting on their Board of Directors.

Then, still continue working and TOTALLY ENJOY WHAT EQUIPMENT THAT I HAVE GOT FROM THEM. Super Shiok man.

The alternative is just buy over Canon and let whoever is in charge run the show, but he reports to me. And of course, I take whatever they produce for FOC.

Even if you dump the whole sum into a meagre savings account which pays only 0.25% interest per annum, the interest gerenerated monthly will still allow you to live like a King!! Here's how it works out:

Principle: $1,000,000,000
Yearly Interest: $1,000,000,000 x 0.25% = $2,500,000
Monthly Interest: $2,500,000/ 12 = $20.83 K

You could just live on interest income for the rest of your life!!! Of course, this income is also taxable lah... but still... :bigeyes:

Sorry bro, 75% of 1 billion wun get you very far, you know.
75% of 1 billion in Sing dollars = 444 million US dollars.
Let just say you throw everything into Canon's camera division, it will only give you about a 15% stake. If you are going to spread it out evenly over Fuji and Nikon too, That will only be a 5% stake in Canon (Camera Division).
Fuji's and Nikon's optical and camera division are by no means small either.


Just giving an idea how big these companies really are.

If you got your 1 billion in your dream then continues to dream for the next billion, forget about make/work for more $$$...just dream and you will have it. That easy.

you know, Bill Gates has many more billions and he feels that it's meaningless to leave them to his daughter. So he is going to leave only (US6m) to her when he is gone and the rest to BG foundation. I think that's the right way to go. $$$ is no more a problem to him and he is still working, probably out of interest in a subject he dearly loved.

If i got a billion, i probably will want to do the same and leave my kids probably abt $10m, which will be more than enough for a decent lifestyle. I do not want to give them fishes, but instead teach them how to fish themselves.

As the rest of the billion, i would want to undertake a project to house all the orphans in Singapore. It will be like an estate which can house probably abt 1,000 orphans and they will be taken care by volunteers/professional: medical, education, etc.... Some of the $$ i will take care of the poor children in the regional countries, building schools, hospital, etc.

I will not forget the photog here. From the petty cash, i will have a clubhouse for photogs. It will have a studio (probably abt 2,000 sf) with a 15 ft ceiling. I will employ Astin as the studio manager full-time so that he doesnt need to organise any shoots, except getting world class models, like ZZY and friends (dont forget Gong Li, Rosamund Kwan, Vanessa Mei, Joan Chen, Poledra) for the ppl here. Cameras available will include the E-1, 1D mk II, D1H, etc.. Probably i will engage Ruthbaby as the full-time bouncer for the studio. when everything settled down, probably i will offer GongLi an indecent proposal she will not refuse.... haha :bsmilie: :bsmilie: :bsmilie:

Wake up man... back to yr work!
