For those retrenched ex-PMETs out there, such as ex-engineers and ex-bankers, do not be sad. You have worked so hard all your lives, now is the time to celebrate life. Open your mind. Your life on this earth is limited. Time to retire. Enjoy your retirement!

Good retirement plan in KL or Penang (retire in luxury) for a retired couple at 55 years old (assuming no dependents)

Passive income at 55
Rent out fully paid HDB flat S$2.5k pm
Stocks dividends S$1k pm
Total S$3.5k pm or RM10.5k pm

KL or Penang cost of living
Rent a 3 bedroom condominium RM2k pm

Food, groceries, restaurants and utilities RM2k pm
Medical and entertainment RM1k pm

Just started working again after further post-graduate education.

Age: 28 (expat)
Income: SGD300,000 (finance)
Savings: SGD400,000
Inheritance: over SGD10MM (half of parents' net worth)

Nobody at my office here in Singapore knows that I come from a fairly affluent family at home. Would never discuss/wear anything that would suggest it. Educational background is top-tier, but so is that of many of my colleagues, including the Singaporeans.

Should I live it up and leave my financial future to my parents, or should I continue saving everything and being discreet?

You are rich. Make a difference to the world. There are billions of homeless, hungry, poor people and children. What's your purpose on this earth? Think.

How old are you? What's your personal net worth? Do you have kids?

Chosen singlehood, 46yo. Yes, partly due to my status,other factors - less risk adverse to unconventional (higher-risk) investments & getting professionals (one remisier cousin, one trustworthy financial consultant), having mindset of working earnings hard & "not working hard for my money", etc. strongly believe also in "giving" in order to "receive" n love to be generous to self & family. Above all, setting retirement target helps.

You have a good headstart. In answer to your question, (I see that no one has replied), you should practise a mixture of the two options. But don't forget to 'give' - just look at Mark Zackerberd and fellow top entrepreneurs who had made it to the Forbes list.
