2018 In Review

2018 has been a most… interesting year for me. In life, I believe there are 3 main aspects that we all seek to maximize in order to be happy: Wealth, Health, Relationships.

Wealth.

This first key component hasn’t really gone as expected for me this year… It’s only with the [click to continue…]

When it comes to investing, in my heart of hearts, I truly believe that I’m an equal opportunity employer. In others words, I dig both Deep Value Investing as well as Hyper-Growth Investing. Although I don’t always get it right (c’mon give me a break I’m a very flawed human being, after all), I have been fortunate enough in my lifetime to have made “life-changing gains” via both the aforementioned routes.

In short, Deep Value Investing and Hyper-Growth Investing both work!

The reality, though, is this — Markets are cyclical, [click to continue…]

I’ve been a contrarian my entire life… Wait, you might want to scratch that and just outright say OUTCAST, which might be a better term to use… I mean, ever since I was a little kid, I kind of always knew that I was different from the majority of my peers…

in Thoughts

When it comes to early FI, I think the end game for all of us is to find a way to maximize our time on this planet. As everyone well knows, time is finite and thus the ultimate currency in the Game of Life. Over the years, more and more folks are realizing this stark truth, and I think that’s why the concept of FIRE (Financial Independence Retire Early) continues to grow in popularity and more and more peeps are out there attempting it.

I’ve been blogging about my own FIRE journey since 2012, and well, I can honestly say that [click to continue…]

Hey everyone, sorry for the lack of updates as of late! In case you were wondering, I’m still hanging around Manila (Bonifacio Global City), and as I’ve alluded to in previous posts, I’m trying to lockdown and secure my very first personal residence.

On this blog, lately I have emphasized and re-emphasized over and over again the importance of focusing our early FI efforts on accumulating World Class Tier 1 assets. Although this concept may seem simple in nature, you have no idea how easily this is [click to continue…]

I really don’t know what I’m getting myself into… but you know what, if people are ever honest and open about their own lives, they would be more willing to admit the same thing — In life, seldom do we have all the answers staring at us right smack in our face. You just do the best you can, and keep at it.

Live and learn.

In my own case, no, right now I can’t say definitively that I’m [click to continue…]
