Why would anyone want to reach early FI, particularly at such a young age, anyway? I mean seriously, you’re going to be bored out of your mind all day, doing NOTHING! Don’t you know that they’ve done research studies out there and they’ve found that people who are unproductive, lounging around all day and not using their brains actively end up becoming completely depressed people who feel totally disconnected with modern society? I mean if you’re not interacting with your co-workers on a regular basis, your brain is just gonna become mush and you’re going to feel like you’re going through life without any goals or purposes!

It’s a very depressing life…

And don’t get me started on the finances!

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…

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…]

I woke up early on Thursday morning in Cebu and couldn’t wait to get out there and explore! It was raining quite heavily throughout the night, but things had calmed down shortly after sunrise. For this day, I had plans to go out to Plantation Bay Resort and Spa.

So far, I’ve noticed that every country that I’ve been to in Asia has [click to continue…]

Hey everyone, I am now writing to you all from Cebu! I arrived last night, and was initially planning on heading on over to the beaches today, but I woke up to some heavy rainfall this morning…

Oh well, that’s just the way things go sometimes…

When it comes to Cebu, although this is my very first trip out to the Philippines, it’s had a special place in my heart for awhile now… You see, when I first started getting serious about achieving early FI in 2012, I started hitting the books hard and doing a lot of research into investing.

Hey everyone! I am writing to you all from Da Nang now… Yup, that’s right, I’m still enjoying my time in Vietnam, embracing the much warmer climate during these “winter” months…

Day 2 in Ho Chi Minh City got started bright and early for me! I guess you could say that I’m still not well acclimated to my new environment, as I found myself waking up numerous times throughout the night, and around 5:30 AM, I got up for good yesterday after hearing a [click to continue…]
