Hong Kong – Flight Booked for June 29, 2016

by FI Fighter on June 26, 2016

in Hong Kong, Travel Updates


Ok, just kidding… The Next Chapter will now begin on June 29, 2016, when I bid “fare thee well” to Silicon Valley, the Bay Area, California, and the United States and say “hello” to infinite possibilities. First stop, Hong Kong, where I will be arriving on June 30.

Then the real fun begins…

Flight Info

I pushed my flight out, again… Now, instead of connecting from SFO to LAX to HKG, I’ve got a direct flight from SFO straight to HKG


So, I’ll STILL be around the Bay Area for another few days…


It’s been great getting the chance to meet some more readers, and other bloggers, just prior to my upcoming trip. In fact, here’s a shout out to Millennial Boss, who I had the pleasure of meeting for the first time this past Friday.


Yup, for sure I’m going to miss the Bay Area… But hopefully I’ll be able to connect with more readers and bloggers when I’m out exploring SE Asia… Actually, it’s also been pretty awesome to see the uptick of readers emanating from Australia and New Zealand in recent months. The ASX is the de facto powerhouse exchange for finding the best clean energy mining stock investments, so with my growing interest in that space, it was inevitable that I’d end up signing up for a HotCopper account and connecting with some of the posters on those forums. Gotta say, I really admire the passion the Aussies bring to the table, these folks are some real hardcore mining enthusiasts!


Thanks for tagging along, mates!


FI Fighter is going international! Haha, we shall see…


Anyway, I’ll be around the Bay Area for another two days… If anyone wants to meet up, send me an e-mail, or leave a comment below.


Fight On!

That HK milk tea in Cathay business class – yummmmmm

Looking forward to “all you can drink!”

And I’m a pretty big fan of Gong Cha… I hear they got a bunch of those in HK and I’m sure some better places as well…

Chen, you’ll have to take me to your fav spot! 🙂

Try the bo loa bow with butter in HK. It’s the best!

Do you still plan to keep posting articles while abroad?


8 FI Fighter June 27, 2016 at 10:07 am


Yes, absolutely, provided whenever I can and have access to wi-fi.

The journey is just getting started! 😉

I’ve started following your blog earlier this year, great motivator especially since we’re from similar background. If you’re interested, we can sit down for a chat somewhere in Cupertino.

Thanks! Glad you’ve found the blog useful. Sure, how about sometime tomorrow? My schedule just got booked for the remainder of today.

I take it you work close by, at a certain tech company I’m all too familiar with? I’ll send you an email and we can setup a time/place.

Take care!


11 Pon June 27, 2016 at 10:43 am

Yea, that small company down the street. I’ve responded 🙂


12 FI Fighter June 29, 2016 at 8:43 am


Thanks for your time, it was great getting to meet up with you and chill…

Hopefully in the future, there will be many, many more days of chilling 😉

Take care!

Will you be managing your SF properties on your own still while abroad?


14 FI Fighter June 27, 2016 at 10:11 am


I still got my brother, best friend around, but for the most part, I self-manage the local stuff myself… My deal has always been to try and secure long-term tenants and to lock them in on 2+ year leases… I’m not a fan of tenant turnover and do my best to avoid it as much as possible, which are the cause of most headaches for landlords.

But if all that fails, I’ll have to reach out to some local realtors for help.

All the best!

It was so great to meet you as well! Thank you for the shout out and best of luck on your new adventure!


16 FI Fighter June 29, 2016 at 8:42 am

Thanks Julie! I’m glad I got a chance to meet you prior to my trip 🙂

Take care!
