Looking Back into One Year Of Blogging

In a blink of an eye, the 53rd birthday of Singapore has came to an end, and so does our public holiday rest. It is already the weekend after our rest.

My Newly Created SRS Account

To the regular readers of my blog, who might wonder if you’ve read the title wrongly… Yes, you read it right. As much as I’m looking into different financial product, I’m actually too early for any. However, this shouldn’t be a factor, restricting me to venture further into the different tools available in the financial world. With a regular dose of income for the past couple of months, I will be needing another tool to assist me further in this journey. This time round, with the inception of the SRS account. While it will only be temporary, I’m sure...

Account Size Does Matters.. Even In Punting!

At this very moment of typing this… The quadrennial event had finally ended with France taking home the World Cup and the team of France to take home $38 million in prize money. Congratulations once again to the France and supporters of France. The World Cup of 2018 had been a really interesting one this far and had kept me relatively occupied for a couple of weeks, despite my busy schedules. And yes, you’re right. I did make a small punt this time round. Earlier today, I made a visit to one of the Singapore Pools branches to get...

Controllable VS Uncontrollable Factors

There’s many things in this planet. Some are controllable and we will be able to control them within our means, while the others are uncontrollable. I will be able to control the speed of my vehicle by stepping on the accelerator or the brakes.I will be able to control my emotions to prevent myself from over reacting.I will be able to control my decisions and body to do something. BUT.. I’m unable to control the speed of another car and the chances of getting into an accident if the driver is reckless. But, I’ll be able to stay vigilant...

20th Birthday Post

Today, I have bid farewell to the 1X club and officially entered the 2X club. While I’m still relatively young as compared to majority of the peers around, this does not indicate that we are different. Age is just an indicative number that tells us how long we’re around on planet earth. What’s more important is our mentality towards dealing with issues that cocks up in our lives. We are all humans. And having to mention about this, I vividly remember one of my favourite sentence in AK’s blog. Source: AK71Link: Chinese New Year of Dog (2018) Much contradicting...

Source: Google – CDG’s Share Price The title of this blog post may sound really misleading but I’m sure that some readers would probably guess it right from reading the title. I’m not lying!
