I am happy for both of you that you are enjoying your retirement at 55. It is a good time to enjoy the fruits of your labour.

Yes, I am aware that we could live reasonably well with $100k pa in retirement. We still got a few years to 55, and our current living expense is around $120k - $140k pa as we have 2 cars and still paying off the mortgage of our second property and children still in the uni. Our 2 properties are next to MRT stations also.

The $150k pa passive income target we set ourselves include some buffer to take account of inflation over the longer term. Our envisaged lifestyle in retirement:-

1. Age in place (ie we hope to continue staying where we are as we are very comfortable with the neighbourhood)
2. Have a car to move around in comfort
3. Continue to travel at least once a year
4. Attend concerts and live performances
5. Dining out occasionally
6. Continue to engage in our respective hobbies (eg tennis, golf and investing)
7. Able to contribute to charitable causes

We foresee this phase to last a good 10-15 years (from 55 - 70 yo) before we tone down the more physical activities such as tennis, golf and traveling. By that time, our expenses will reduce but medical expenses could increase.

Both of us are now living in a two bedroom condo located next to an MRT station near the Jurong Lake area. We sold our penthouse and moved to the smaller and cosy condo. It freed up cash and allowed us to invest in dividend stocks.

Our passive income is now $80k pa and our daughter gives us $12k pa. Our expenses is only $50k pa, including holidays. Since we live next to the MRT, we no longer need a car to move around. Our place is also near to malls, hawker centres and supermarkets. We enjoy eating out and doing the household chores together. We also enjoy walking around the Jurong Lake in the evenings. Retirement is fun.

We plan to retire in 4 years time when we reach 55. We own a 4 room HDB flat which we bought many years ago and now it is paid up. We will be retiring in KL where we have relatives and friends.

We plan to rent out our flat for $2500 pm or $30k pa. We also have stocks investments in blue chips which give us 4% dividends, we get $30k in dividends per year. In total, our passive income from flat and stocks is about $60k pa. When we convert our passive income, we get RM160k pa. Expenses for a retired couple in KL will be about RM60k pa. Our daughter is expected to give us $1,000 pm ($12k pa) from her annual income of $100k pa. We will save this.

When we reach 65, we will get $2,400 pm or $28.8k pa from CPF Life. We will save this as well. So when we reach 65, our passive income will be $100.8k pa or RM270k pa. Our net worth now is about $1.6m.

Pleasantly surprised with your post. It suddenly opened up our mind on the possibility for my spouse and I to retire in a couple of years time when we hit 48 & 50 years old. We have no kids.

We already have a passive income of S$60k pa and if we sell our current home (a condo) and invest it in blue chip stocks, we can get another S$60k pa of dividends, making it a total of S$120k pa of dividends. If we convert this to RM and retire in KL, we will have a passive income of RM320k pa. With this amount, we can easily retire in the most posh penthouse in the most prestigious address in KL and can drive a sports car. LOL.

Assumptions, assumptions, assumptions. Damn what is wrong with this forum. so many losers here making groundless assumptions.

What makes you think RM wont go up over the next few yrs. What makes u think u can still have that passive income from dividends for the next few years. And how the hell u think u can sell your condo and retire in KL when the MY govt may just raise the property limit for foreigners from current 1mil RM to higher amt.

Damn only sinkies keep thinking that their properties will rise while the rest of region properties will fall. DUN count ur chicks till they hatch. Who knows tomorrow you r sick and ur freaking entire savings go towards medical bill. Jeezz

U sound just like our govt. Like to paint a nice Singapore dream for us. Hey wake up dude. the world is getting more volatile. The only thing u can confirm is death and taxes.

LOL, why are you responding to the same old post by the "broken recorder"? I suspect he is a property agent from M'sia or selling/renting M'sian properties.
