Currently 26. Will be 27 next month.
Married with one kid and another on the way.
Private diploma holder.

Current personal net worth $245,000+ with no liabilities. Car fully paid for. Currently renting a condo unit awaiting BTO completion before moving in.

Used to work for others but owns my own business now.

Owns a couple of watches worth approx. $25,000.

I'm very grateful for the opportunities and help I've encountered and garnered during my down time. I don't think I'm doing exceptionally well but I think I'm doing better than most of my peers, though I've known many high flyers that have achieved much more than I have. But comparison is a thief of joy. So working hard now to achieve my dreams.

Actually the happiest times are when I was a teen with no money to my pocket. Even if you have money doesn't necessary mean you are happy. Happiness is a state of mind.

Btw quick update, now im 28 years old. My total cash+CPF+investments about $110k already. Next step aiming to be a millionaire before 35.
