Since returning stateside from Hong Kong, I’ve had a lot of fun getting reacclimated with the Bay Area. Unfortunately, when it comes to beaches, NorCal just [click to continue…]

I spent all day today traveling, but I finally arrived in Puerto Rico! This is my first time out here, and at first glance it kinda reminds me of Miami.

Just checked into a unit [click to continue…]

When it comes to early FI (and well, I guess life in general), it’s human nature and tendency to look at things from a linear perspective… I think that’s probably why when somebody actually gets to early FI and then reflects back they’re kind of left scratching their head and wondering:

Oh shit, what the hell just happened?

I can vouch for that because that’s kind of how it went for me… I was just some regular [click to continue…]

I’m still in the Bay Area, and it’s gloomy days like today that make me reflect back and think of the good times chilling out by the beach. No, I’m not really complaining much at all — The weather out here has been just fine and dandy, but today just so happens to be extra cloudy…

Anyway, I did realize that I never got around to uploading some recent pics when I was out in the [click to continue…]

As readers know, I’m back in the Bay Area now… and having one hell of a time trying to make ends meet here! When I checked out of the game for good last year, at the age of 31, I had a pretty good inkling that it would be really tough for me to survive out in the Land of High Tech (let alone thrive), so within a matter of a few months, I had booked my ticket out to Hong Kong and said “peace out” to Silicon Valley…

No, I’m not trying to be all [click to continue…]

in Bay Area, Travel Updates

It ain’t easy (or cheap) trying to make ends meet in the Bay Area… That might be the understatement of the last few decades! But alas, it is what it is…

If I had a crystal ball and knew a few years ago that certain regions [click to continue…]

Vietnam – My Many Meals

by FI Fighter on March 28, 2017

in Food, Travel Updates, Vietnam

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!

Dude, what are you [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 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…]
