Unregistered I buy a lot of life insurance, at least 700 p month.
I earn about 10k gross though, and most of my plans for CI focused, whole life.

Parents allowance- 1600
Insurance- 912 (Including hospital plan, term plan, life insurance and CI plans)
Savings endowment plan with aia- 500
Personal spend- 600
Personal cash savings - 400

My bonus around 3 months on average including aws. (Will try to save at least 40- 50percent of it)
I have worked for close to 5 years now, have around 22k in savings and 12k in investments (stocks)

I am currently living with my parents, have no car, do not own my own house.
Still single as I don't think I am financially stable/secure to look for a partner yet (esp given current covid situation)

The dream of being financially free looks a million miles away
whoever you are, wtf u spending 900+ and 500+ on insurance and investment. wtf ur agent ok mah?
