Hey everyone! Although I arrived back in the Bay Area late last Tuesday (March 14), it took me a bit longer than expected to get settled, so hence the lack of updates as of late…
Anyway, I’m happy to report to you all that I’ve gotten most things squared away and should be back to ranting and raving now! And I assure you, I’ve got a ton of
Hey everyone, I’m writing to you all from my tablet. Unfortunately, I dropped my laptop on the ground and busted the screen so posting will be light until I can head back to the states to get it fixed. I will be heading back to HK on Sunday and then will spend a week there.
Because I want to see some friends again…
And indulge in a few more bowls of Ichiran ramen (which you can only get in: Japan, HK, and NYC).
Then I’m going going back back to Cali Cali…
Anyway, just a few quick thoughts:
- Alona Beach in Panglao is breathtakingly beautiful. The water is remarkably clear and turquoise… Or whatever green/blue is called.
- Mining stocks got smashed to bits and I fear the worst is yet to come since a Fed rate hike seems very likely in March now. I have been buying a bunch of Alexco Resource (AXU) and Fortuna Silver (FSM). If the sell off continues I will back up the truck. Volatility in these stocks is perfectly normal so I have no fear. Buy low and sell high… I will try my best to ease my way in and buy in tranches so I don’t use up all my funds all at once. These firesales are the opportunities we all live for as early financial independence fighters.
- The Philippines is an amazing destination for anyone who loves beaches and sunshine. If that’s your cup of tea, they’ve got it in spades here… Not to mention excellent BBQ, fresh fruits (coconuts, pineapples, mangos, bananas, etc.), friendly locals, and extremely affordable prices… If you are into the rat race and 9-5 grind and stressing out all the time, stay away… Only come here if you want to chill! smile! and enjoy life.
That is all for now…
Back to the beach!
