Congrats, but work on that 5 room flat. Not good enough.



Or are you waiting for Khaw's changes to take effect?

So lonely that many young millionaires surf the web and just chit-chat.

Sometimes, I meet up with fellow millionaires for coffee at starbucks during office hours at ulu location with no crowd.

Sometimes, I go with fellow millionaires to property showroom. It is kind of a hobby to us.

Sometimes, We go out test-driving cars when the showroom is empty during office hours.

Sometimes, I attend investment seminars to entertain myself. Coz I can get to see "millionaires" or "successful" people talking, yet still selling how to get rich course. I also find joy in seeing suckers rushing to sign up, to enrich the trainers, not the participants.

It's a lonely life and I ask you all to be gainfully employed even if you are a millionaire. Treat it as socialising with people. Treat your job as a hobby too. Don't be like me, I quit and now I have trouble going back to work.
Its true hard to getback after stopping work for so long.

I don't intend to buy a car unless public transport becomes intolerable.
Stocktake 2 months later.

Age: 30
Property: Condo (1M value now. Outstanding loan 457k)
Cash: 64k
Stocks: 34k
CPF: 38k (OA & SA)
Income: 5.1k monthly

Increase in cash due to bonus, slight pay increment. Bought more shares however only at breakeven now. Still no car and no kid, and still looking for source of passive income. Have tried to be more frugal these two months, it isn't easy, temptation to spend is always there. Gotta keep going ... long way from financial goal.

You should buy more shares during recession time. What are your sources of passive income besides stock dividends?

I don't have a significant source of passive income, this is a problem.

Passive income can be from 1) dividends, 2) business, 3)renting out 2nd property.

The reason I don't own a lot of stock is that I'm pessimistic about the US economy, euro crisis, etc. Right now I prefer a short term trading style. If I buy stocks to hold, I will get dividends, but there is a risk of capital losses if stock values drop. I did buy some stocks in June, some dropped and some rose, net result is breakeven, nothing fantastic.

Am thinking about setting up a business in my spare time.

I don't have enough money to buy a 2nd property to rent out, anyway its a property bubble now.

Can't jump company for higher salary as my skills are too specialised.

Overall, feel quite stuck
