Gold is one of those quirky conundrum type of “investments”… I use the term “investment” quite lightly because even though the shiny yellow metal has been around for centuries, it’s still something that is totally misunderstood and umm hated by most of society… For gold bulls, “investing” in pet rocks has been more or less a lost cause (losing proposition) since 2011/2012, especially if we are taking about the total returns put forth by the mining stocks associated with Atomic Number 79.

We are talking about some pathetically atrocious value creation for shareholders…

Anyway, one main reason investing/speculating in [click to continue…]

Greetings and salutations from Mandaluyong! In case you were wondering, although I’m still in Metro Manila, I recently moved away from Bonifacio Global City (BGC) over to Mandaluyong (only a stone’s throw away, but still takes an eternity to get to during rush hour traffic) in an attempt to try something new…

Well, I’ve got my reasons for [click to continue…]

2018 has been one of the tougher and more tumultuous years that I’ve had to deal with in my life, up to now. For the most part, things got off to a roaring start in the beginning of the year when pretty much all assets across the board were skyrocketing to new highs: clean energy stocks, general equities, real estate, and especially [click to continue…]

In my last post, I mouthed off about how ridiculously expensive I feel like many World Class Tier 1 real estate assets are selling for in today’s market…

Real Estate Craziness

by FI Fighter on November 29, 2018

in Real Estate Thoughts, Real Estate Updates

It’s no secret to long-term readers of this blog that I got to where I am today because I was lucky beyond belief to have been fortunate enough to have been able to gobble up World Class Tier 1 real estate assets when they were discarded to the bargain bin back in 2012-2013, and to a lesser extent from 2014-2015.

Anyway, the thing about me (as you may or may not know) is that I try and be as [click to continue…]

Work Ethic

in Motivation, Random Updates

One observation that I’ve made while traveling all over the globe is that no matter where you venture, you’re going to be able to locate very good people and make friends… if you choose to do so. Furthermore, I’m somewhat blown away by the work ethic and drive that so many people out there possess, folks who are [click to continue…]

One of the greatest compliments that I think I can ever receive in life is if someone who really knows me tells me the following:

Jay, I’ve known you for a long time now, and you’re always the same dude.

The above comment might not seem like much, and albeit it can read rather vague if there’s no context behind it, but for a simple dude like myself, that’s really all I want out of life.

Let me elaborate a bit…

Dont Be Afraid to Chase Your Dreams

in Thoughts, Thoughts

When I reached my mid 20s, you could say I reached an important crossroads of sorts. I’m not sure if I was going through the moment of arriving at my own version of “quarter life crisis” but many things didn’t feel right, and I felt like I was trapped in life.

Granted, on the surface, many things seemed to be going well [click to continue…]
