My Stock Report Card for December 2013 Total Dividend Collected from Jan – Dec 2013 : SGD 51,291. A very exciting month. US Market is really noisy with all the tapering talks.

Mark Zuckerburg sold 41 million shares of FB. Finally, I managed to cross the 50K mark for Dividend Income. Happy :-)....

About Me

I’m a single lady who aspires to achieve financial freedom. I graduated from university with a salary of only SGD 2,200 per month and started this financial freedom project in 2005 when my career came to a transition.

How ironic, our ancestors spend all their life seeking longevity while our generation...

My Stock Report Card for November

My Stock Report Card for November 2013 Total Dividend Collected from Jan – Nov 2013 : SGD 48,466. Mixed feelings this month. I sold SIA away because I was getting tired of this share. As a traveller with Krisflyer, I could feel that their differentiation is slipping away. Besides that, I was thinking of using the cash to buy some Twitter at around US $17 during it’s IPO. Didn’t managed to get Twitter in the end as there was too much hype around it. Twitter went all the way up to US $50.09 !! It’s madness. Anyhow, I will...
