Kitchen Remodel (And Other Home Renovations)

This may sound weird coming from someone who is in their mid-30s, but up to now, I haven’t ever known what it’s like to attempt my own kitchen remodel.

So, even though I dabbled on rehab projects like Rental Property SH #1 and Rental Property SH #3 way back in the day, my current on-going project to fix up my first personal residence in Bonifacio Global City (BGC) out her in Manila has felt like an entirely new experience.

For sure, though, I have

BGC: New Construction Update (10/27/19)

It’s been awhile since I provided readers a new construction update on real estate projects located in Bonifacio Global City (BGC). At the heart of it all, though, I’ve been (and remain very much) a real estate guy. So, although it was of course lots of fun getting back into the swing of things out here in Manila, it didn’t long before my other instincts wanted to shift focus and observe how many real estate projects in BGC have progressed since I was last out here this past April.

For starters, let’s take a look at

Welcome Home Manila – Getting Settled in to a New Life

I’ve been back home in Manila (Bonifacio Global City) for just over two weeks now, trying to get settled in to a new life here in Asia. Wow, time sure does fly! Although I would have much preferred to have been more active blogging lately, quite frankly, I didn’t realize how much running around town I was going to have to do, right from the start!

These are kind of the moments you

Early FI Journey – Back to Manila (October 7, 2019)

The early FI journey is shifting timezones again! Though I’ve enjoyed my time back home in California immensely, it’s nearing that time of year (again) when I start making my way to warmer weather. As such, I’ve been spending the last few weeks wrapping things up, and I’m now greatly looking forward to

New Updates on the Way (September 26, 2019)

I hope you guys are enjoying the new look and feel of this blog… You might be wondering where the navigation menu went, as it’s rather barren right now.

To give you the inside scoop, the team (of two people) at FI Fighter are still working on totally re-designing all that, and figuring out how we want to set that up. Also, the “Start Here” page is going to see a total makeover (I’m personally most excited for this), but just like the

Plan Your Future Early

One of my primary goals on this blog (especially moving forward from here) will be to share a lot of the insights that I’ve learned over the years. As someone who has been a part of and experienced a number of market cycles, I feel like I’ve observed a lot of things over the last decade or so.

With that said, one thing that I certainly don’t regret now (and probably no one else ever does) was being cognizant of my

Less is More

If money was no object, it really wouldn’t matter too much if someone aspired to have all the nice things and trappings in the world; the sky’s the limit and anything is possible! However, outside of the top 1% or 0.1% of people on the planet, for most regular folks out there, we gotta
