In the beginning of 2012, I first started blogging about my own personal journey to early financial independence. In 2016, I quit my corporate engineering job for good and set sail out to Asia to live out a dream that had been inculcated in my brain as [click to continue…]

Hong Kong – I Will Miss You Dearly!

by FI Fighter on March 22, 2017

in Hong Kong, Travel Updates

When it comes to life, everyone knows that you’ve got to approach things with an open mind. I mean, the more you know about ANYTHING, the more humble you become and the more you realize that you don’t actually know jack shit at all…

Well, that’s been my approach, anyway, and now that I’m back in the Bay Area and reflecting on the past nine months of my life, I’m more convinced than ever that having that type of  [click to continue…]

I’ve got a lot of overseas photos and stories to share with readers! Until I get to that (yup, I’m really behind on my updates, I apologize), here are just a few more thoughts [click to continue…]

Hey everyone! Although I arrived back in the Bay Area late last Tuesday (March 14), it took me a bit longer than expected to get settled, so hence the lack of updates as of late…

Anyway, I’m happy to report to you all that I’ve gotten most things squared away and should be back to ranting and raving now! And I assure you, I’ve got a ton of [click to continue…]

Broken Laptop (March 3, 2017)

by FI Fighter on March 2, 2017

in Blog Update

Hey everyone, I’m writing to you all from my tablet. Unfortunately, I dropped my laptop on the ground and busted the screen so posting will be light until I can head back to the states to get it fixed. I will be heading back to HK on Sunday and then will spend a week there.

Because I want to see some friends again…

And indulge in a few more bowls of Ichiran ramen (which you can only get in: Japan, HK, and NYC).

Then I’m going going back back to Cali Cali…

Anyway, just a few quick thoughts:

  • Alona Beach in Panglao is breathtakingly beautiful. The water is remarkably clear and turquoise… Or whatever green/blue is called.
  • Mining stocks got smashed to bits and I fear the worst is yet to come since a Fed rate hike seems very likely in March now. I have been buying a bunch of Alexco Resource (AXU) and Fortuna Silver (FSM). If the sell off continues I will back up the truck. Volatility in these stocks is perfectly normal so I have no fear. Buy low and sell high… I will try my best to ease my way in and buy in tranches so I don’t use up all my funds all at once. These firesales are the opportunities we all live for as early financial independence fighters.
  • The Philippines is an amazing destination for anyone who loves beaches and sunshine. If that’s your cup of tea, they’ve got it in spades here… Not to mention excellent BBQ, fresh fruits (coconuts, pineapples, mangos, bananas, etc.), friendly locals, and extremely affordable prices… If you are into the rat race and 9-5 grind and stressing out all the time, stay away… Only come here if you want to chill! smile! and enjoy life.

That is all for now…

 

Back to the beach!

 

Fight On!

I made a few more transactions yesterday… As my luck would have it, my purchases were made prior to the MASSIVE SMACKDOWN that many mining stocks experienced towards the latter half of the day…

Such is life.

Nevertheless, I got to position my portfolio into some [click to continue…]

I gotta say, I’ve really been enjoying my stay here in the Philippines, and Cebu in particular. With that said, my family and I decided that it was about time to mix things up a little bit, so [click to continue…]

Rise of the silver surfer! I was afraid that might happen sooner or later, so as I was sharing with readers last time around, I’ve been making it my focus to try and pick up some more cheap silver stocks while the spot price of silver [click to continue…]

My first full day in Cebu was spent chilling at the Plantation Bay Resort and Spa. For Day 2, it was time we got out there and explored Cebu City.

Before heading out to Park Mall for lunch, I grabbed some [click to continue…]
