We don't have much savings as we spend a lot on the kids for tuition, enrichment, etc as well as giving our parent allowance to support them financially. Our net worth in total is only a small $2m in total.

We worry about our retirement. How can we retire? Do we need to downgrade to public housing? This worries us a lot.
We are in our late fifties and retired. Our daughter married a foreigner and staying overseas. We moved from our landed property to a 1 bedroom condo in Jurong. We invested our cash balance in blue chips and now getting $100k pa dividends. Our daughter also gives us $1k per month and so our passive income is $112k pa. Our expenses is $50k pa. We invest our savings into more dividend stocks and our passive income continues to grow.
