Uncle admires your life due to early retirement with passive income but do make sure to hedge through insurances for unforeseen circumstances. I live a life of contentment and hope to impart knowledge to the younger ones.

Glad to learn someone of impressive records
Hi uncle MK,

I wasn't sure I could do early retirement at the start. Took me a few years to test out passive income before taking the plunge. So far so good. Stress level is down. I figured I am still young enough to go more aggressive with investment. Will likely tone down when I hit 50.

Meanwhile, I have hospitalization insurance, term and life/critical illness coverage as well. It's very important in SG to have hospitalization insurance.

Like you, I did it via doing business. No magic formula, it's through hard work, perseverance, taking some risk, making judgement calls and a lot of luck.
