What are you passionate about in life?

Recently, I attended an inspirational talk by Grant Rawlinson (aka Axe) who originated from New Zealand and is currently based in Singapore. He is a professional speaker, adventurer and explorer. He used to be a professional 7 – side rugby player during his younger days (did that for around 25 years) but it ended after an injury. […]

Sept 2017 – Expenses Update

  September is the month where we celebrated Ally’s birthday and also my sister’s wedding. Ally also transited from half day to full day child care where she will be attending additional enrichment classes like speech and drama. We believe she will be able to adapt to it and enjoy it. My sister’s wedding was […]

Routine is the enemy of time

Have you ever wonder the purpose of your existence in this world? Is it to go through the so called “holy template” of leading a fulfilling life by doing the following; study hard when you are young, get a good job, save some money, start a family, have kids, buy a house, work hard then […]

Consumption patterns of Singapore women

Recently, I came across a press release issued by UOB almost a year ago. Basically the bank had compiled a report that seeks to understand and provide an archetype to the spending habits of a cosmopolitan woman (both young and not so young) in Singapore, based on UOB data (which I presume is the credit card […]

Minimalism and the luxuries

Does minimalism means that we miss out on the luxuries in life? Well, it’s entirely up to you. Dave and I practice a school of minimalism where we do minimalise the stuff in our life, yet not compromising on quality. At the same time, we try not to be too extravagant about them and avoid […]

Budgeting for 2017

Justin from Root of Good recently published an article on how his family of 5 managed to live for under US$40,000 a year. Dave and I are followers of his blog and needless to say, we were extremely impressed on how they managed to achieve this, despite the fact that they have 3 kids (yes […]
