In property investment, you have options to put your money in securities i.e.  real estate unit trust, amanah saham hartanah, property company stocks etc. or you can buy physical property – house, or a shop lot etc.

A Brief History of Gold

Who discovered gold

A child finds a shiny rock in a creek, thousands of years ago, and the human race is introduced to gold for the first time.
Gold NuggetsGold was first discovered as shining, yellow nuggets. "Gold is where you find it," so the saying goes, and gold was first discovered in its natural state, in streams all over the world. No doubt it was the first metal known to early hominids.

Gold became a part of every human culture. Its brilliance, natural beauty, and luster, and its great malleability and resistance to tarnish made it enjoyable to work and play with.
