I’m back in Hong Kong, after spending about a month in Japan! All in all, it was a wonderful experience and the type of post FI memories created are ones that I will cherish for a lifetime. Over the course of about 30 days, I ended up [click to continue…]

As we enter the fall season, you could say that investing and the markets are on my mind a lot… No doubt, I’m expecting a lot of volatility between now and the end of the year…

One of the joys of being in early FI is getting to do basically whatever it is that you want to do. Most recently, my brother, Living Proof and I decided it was a good time to wander around in Tokyo… So, we booked some tickets and flew out to Tokyo. Kind of on a whim, if you will…

But what’s wrong with that?

My brother also most recently retired from his corporate engineering gig (he’s also now in early FI), and had just finished his travel journeys out in the Philippines; we decided to rendezvous in Tokyo (along with our mom since it’s been her dream for the longest time to explore Tokyo) for more adventures.

We all arrived in Shinjuku on September 03. Since then, I’ve been [click to continue…]

Prior to this vacation in Japan, I had never before been to Asia. It’s funny, when I look back and think about it… Prior to graduating university in 2007, my high school buddies and I were all planning to make a trip to Japan as a sort of post-graduation celebration for everyone. Unfortunately, the timing just never worked out and we ultimately ended up scraping the [click to continue…]

Hey everyone! I’ve been in Japan for a few days now, and am absolutely having the time of my life. It’s difficult to explain in words, but I really do feel like I’ve stepped into a whole different world. I think I have officially caught [click to continue…]

It’s been a super busy week… Lots of stuff going on: in contract for a new property, wrapping up a ton of loose items at work, taking care of some last minute errands, and now I get to unwind, relax and fly business class on a 787 dreamliner to Japan! 🙂

My flight is later this afternoon, and I’m super excited for this next [click to continue…]
