Updates After Long Time

Did you know: Snake Plants is a air purifying plant that produce oxygen even at night?


Hi all, i believe my blog had been inactive for awhile but i'm still actively reading updates from fellow bloggers here almost daily.

I've been busy at work and my focus now is to clear my IPPT guards gold, I'm still stuck at 2,4km although i've been training very hard for it. I have maxed out my Push up and Sit up at 56reps for both but still stuck to hit <10:50 2.4km timing, recent best was 11:09. I am smelling it soon. I believe with continuous effort, the goal will finally be paid off within the next few months. It's hard to believe how drastic a person fitness level can drop after slacking for awhile!!

 I'm looking to attend more self upgrading course from NIE to build up my knowledge.. One of the very exciting course ill be attending in May is the 5 days Berhasa Melayu language package course. hope to learn more, in this 4th generation knowledge is power.

OKAY! to the interesting part!

Ways ahead -> will start being a minimalist by selling away my unused items as i realised i'm having a lot of things that is under ultilised. These sales proceeds will be injected as war funds for the battle for financial freedom.

October is not a good month for me as there are a sea of red inside my portfolio. I am actually still facing a paper loss of $9,000 at the point of time this post is written. Losses mainly comes from the  IHC after the correction from $0.295 to $0.091 on last traded.

I felt that money had become smaller in my eyes, perhaps I am numb or I had became more matured I don't really know. There's a thing that I didn't realised earlier...

I Was Literally Broke


Recently I was on the verge of cash bankruptcy when my bank account balance was $1.10!! My wallet merely have only $50+ in it! Pay day was roughly 2 weeks later.. All these was caused by my poor planning.

Luckily I have my friend borrowed me some cash for me to storm over that 2 weeks. It's kind of interesting to have put myself into such deep shit this time though.

Reasons why I was poor:
1) Gungho investing (I used 60% of my salary for investment)
2) I went to restaurant several times during last month
3) Borrowed some money to my friends.

Today, I went to Standard Chartered Bank to open a e-Savers account so that I could apply for the online trading via the bank, I had enough and now I am quite sick and tired of the $25 minimum trading fee. So, that made me decided to leave it running on its own free wheeling from now onwards.

During these period while everything is dropping, I would be adopting the 'Drop More Buy More' strategy. Looking at it I would be splashing in a huge percentile of my income into the pit. No emergency funds, no mercy.

I think that this way is the best way I can quickly grow my wealth so as to get out of the rat race fast. I am aiming for $100k portfolio by this year end. Currently my portfolio is worth $91,195 I have another $8k to contribute to my retirement stocks account. I am quite happy to see that I am actually in the fast track ahead of my projections since my first post in this blog which is shown below.

What about you? Are you as reckless as me?

Portfolio Update caa 02 Jul 15

Dear All!

It's been a long time since I blogged, even some had already questioned me what I am doing. In my last post, I was sharing about holding back in the markets while waiting for the right time to strike. However, the temptations still beats my will power. Although I didn't post during this period, I still read on most of the new posts under my blog list to get inspirations.

Below are all transactions that I've made during May and Jun period:

New Entries
5/5 Nam Lee Metal 70000 shares at $0.290 ($20,300)
8/5 M1 Limited 3000 shares at $3.50 ($10,500)
5/6 IHC 38000 shares at $0.290 ($11,020)

Total Injection: $41,820

Total Accumulated Dividends for 2015: $1417.30



Honestly for Nam Lee Metal, I followed B's purchase after reading his analysis which can be found here. M1 shares on Dividend Warrior's post here. And lastly for IHC, some insider's news.

With the poor performance of STI of last few weeks my Stock worth is $73,693 as at today, I am pretty satisfied that I am already hitting my projection for 2015 under the weaken market. I am looking to surpass my projection with a kick start in 2015.

Brvoom, till next post!

Cashing In my Portfolio

Earlier, I mentioned about the uncertainty and fear of Global Financial Crisis which nobody knows when that day will arrive.


Today I collected my last dividends of this quarter, they are namely: Aimsamp ($283) and Croesus($250).

And I have put in queue a few counters which I want to Realise It's Gain:


I will be starting to turn more of my holdings back into cash and wait for the D-Day to arrive.

Warren Buffet once said "waiting is the most difficult thing" but once that day come, you know you will be king..!
