Early FI – Random Thoughts (April 24, 2017)

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

Early FI – My Revised Thoughts (Nine Months Later)

In the beginning of 2012, I first started blogging about my own personal journey to early financial independence. In 2016, I quit my corporate engineering job for good and set sail out to Asia to live out a dream that had been inculcated in my brain as

Back in the Bay Area (March 21, 2017)

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

Oh well, that’s just the way things go sometimes…

When it comes to Cebu, although this is my very first trip out to the Philippines, it’s had a special place in my heart for awhile now… You see, when I first started getting serious about achieving early FI in 2012, I started hitting the books hard and doing a lot of research into investing.

2016 Reflections (December 24, 2016)

Happy holidays everyone! I’m still writing to you all from Hong Kong, where I have been based since October (after returning from a month long stint in Japan). As the year winds down, I think now is a good time for me to reflect on everything that has happened in 2016…

As readers may recall, I quit my job earlier this year, and decided it was due time for me to walk away from Corporate America so that I could pursue the next

My Hong Kong Thanksgiving (November 24-25, 2016)

hk_adventure-1

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
