Travel Updates

Well, the time has arrived for me to pack my bags and head off to someplace… warmer! The weather in Hong Kong is quite fickle, and even just a few days ago it was quite [click to continue…]


Hong Kong Adventures – The Peak Tram

by FI Fighter on November 30, 2016

in Hong Kong, Travel Updates


After spending “Black Friday” visiting Lantau Island and finally getting a chance to check out the magnificent Tian Tan Buddha statue up close, I figured I would keep the momentum train going, and check out some more “touristy ” sites. Up to now, for the most part, I’ve been more fixated with [click to continue…]

For the first time in my life, I got to experience Thanksgiving outside of America… Since I’ve grown so accustomed to waiting in long lines on Black Friday, I guess you could say that subconsciously speaking, I made it my duty this past Friday to go out looking for “trouble”…

So, I decided to FINALLY head on over to Lantau Island and do the [click to continue…]



When it comes to blog posts, I’ll be the first to admit that lately I’ve been spending a lot of time and effort focusing on precious metals mining stocks more than anything else… But not to lose sight of the fact that this website should be primarily focused on early FI, I’ve remained cognizant and aware of the need for me to eventually get back to my roots…

It has been awhile, and I don’t think I’ve posted [click to continue…]


Early FI – There Are No Rules!

in Japan, Thoughts, Travel Updates


I’ve been blogging now for over 4 years, and anyone who has followed along for awhile now knows full well that I don’t very much like to follow any set rules… For instance, when we first got the party started, I was extremely [click to continue…]

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…]


One Month In Japan

in Japan, Travel Updates


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…

With that said, I should also be grounded enough to realize that when it [click to continue…]


And Now I’m In Tokyo (September 03, 2016)

japan - 1

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…]


Nida - 1

First off, I gotta say typhoon Nida was a new and unique experience for me. Luckily, not too much damage was done, but I think the typhoon really started picking up around 2:00 AM yesterday, and unfortunately for me, I didn’t get out of bed until around 7:00 AM. When I woke up and checked around the house, everything appeared to be in [click to continue…]
