A new milestone for SG Web Reviews

SG Web Reviews stormed past 51,000 pageviews today. This is a new milestone for my blog and to be honest, I am very pleased that my blog’s readership has been rocketing over the last six months. Although I started this blog three years ago, I stopped blogging for quite a while in 2011 because of work commitments. At the end of 2011, pageviews for my blog was 8500. The increasing popularity of SG Web Reviews is a compliment to me and serves to reinforce in me that I am going the right direction. I hope that by the end of this year, my...

My Passive Cash Flow Milestones

I have 3 milestones for my Passive Cash Flow – namely $10,000, $50,000 and $100,000. Let me tell you that generating my first $250 is the toughest unless you are willing to move that first step into the passive cash flow journey. However, after overcoming $250, I am able to move on to $500, to $1,000, to $2000 and beyond. It is a slow and steady process. A milestone needs to have a value and a date. The Most Difficult Problem I Have Faced The most difficult part of the whole process is the question that lingers in my...

10 Years As A Passive S-Reits Investor Recap

2017 is a special year for me as couple of milestones (in regard to investing or trading in stock market) have been reached.  One of those is being a decade of passive S-Reits investor.  Prior to 2007, I did invest in S-Reits but mostly on a short to mid term basis in which after getting dividend and seeing some capital gain just sold it off.  However, a personal experience then got me decide to become a real passive S-Reits investor. Then S-Reits were considered defensive stock (as for now whether that still valid I’m not sure) given that the...

No One Is Going To Pay for your Expensive Wedding

If you’re holding a grand wedding to impress your guests, then you’ve gotten it all wrong. A wedding is about YOU and your partner, and NOT your guests. They’re the sidekicks, the spectators, the audience there to celebrate what is possibly the most important milestone of your life. 10 years ago, the average cost of a hotel table was less than $1000 but now, the rates have escalated to $1500 – $2000 on average. Isn’t that scary? The inflation rate for weddings is about 10% every year (that hotel / photographer / makeup artist your friend used for her wedding...

Sheng Siong share price inflated?

Sheng Siong is a local supermarket chain with 43 outlets located across Singapore. Listed in the Singapore stock market, this counter is popular among investors. When it got listed in the SGX mainboard on 17 August 2011, the IPO price was $0.33. Fast forward six years later, the share price has surged past the $1.00 milestone recently but investors must be wondering if Sheng Siong share price is inflated. With a population of 5.3 million, the market for supermarket chain is very small in local context. Furthermore, the market is also saturated with other players, not to mention the...

How It Felt To Fly On The Singapore Airlines Suites

Last week, my wife and I flew Suites on Singapore Airlines for the first time for our honeymoon. We did it by redeeming our miles (here’s how to do it – though some of the info is outdated), because we couldn’t afford to pay full price for it. It was awesome, although I felt like a kid who had sneaked into a cocktail party for millionaires – like I wasn’t supposed to be there. Now, here’s the thing: I hate reading “influencer” posts with beautiful, filtered pictures of their VIP experiences with captions like “The perfect place to catch up on my reading” #blessed #wanderlust #sponsored. Social media has...

Consolidating my portfolio and diversifying

Been busy recently, and trying to start an Amazon ecommerce business as a sideline to provide additional cashflow (as well as doing some additional due diligence in reading materials related to it). Haven’t had much time to work on my watchlist as well. Finally got to combining my US and SG portfolio together, and thus will track something like the FTSE All-World Index funds for a better comparison. On a side note, I have achieved a total portfolio size of 50k now. Still relatively small but at least it is a milestone :) As portfolio gets bigger (pity my...
