Alot of people mentioned that Warren Buffett was old school, and his investment philosophy will not work anymore.

Well, abit of luck is required for winning. However, my team was very serious about winning. We met up before the race to strategize and assign responsibilities. . It was a great team. Mel (default team leader) was touted the Urban Race Queen of Singapore, so she had all the strategies in her mind + using her remote research guru to help us with the answers. Caleb was the youngest winner of "Who wants to be a millionaire? - Singapore", so being very knowledgeable already, he was given the responsibility to read about Singapore Heritage. Mich was quite knowledgeable (partly be'cos of NAC) and she was given the responsibility of texting the answers. As for me, I don't really know much about Singapore Heritage, so I was supposedly the runner in the group. My navigation skill was pretty decent, so I just ran around. I like to be given brainless job.

I shall make best use of my time since flights have already been booked.
