As Dave has shared in the previous post, there was an estate party in our neighbourhood last month, and we attended the event. The event was pretty well organised, with lots of family friendly activities and games, many suitable for young kids. Ally might have been a bit too young to participate in some of […] ...

I have a confession to make. Even though I try to live minimally, and purchase only things I need, I do a lot of window shopping. Online. Ok, that is an oxymoron, some might say. If you are a minimalist, you won’t even bother looking at stuff like that. Because, you probably don’t need any […] ...

An uncle of a colleague passed on earlier this week. It was an upsetting event and I passed her my condolences. The passing of a love and close one is always one of the hardest ordeal to overcome for anyone and words alone are insufficient to describe the feelings, and little can be said to […] ...

October is the month when we celebrated our 5th wedding Anniversary and we went for a family day out at River Safari. Ally enjoyed free admission with each accompanying adult for the month of October. This is the third time we went to River Safari with Ally and she is so excited about it that she kept on harping about seeing the Giant Pandas. As Ally just turned three last month, ...

Our blog has garnered a lot more traction over the last few months and we thank our readers for your continuous support and comments. One area which has garnered a lot of eyeballs is definitely our monthly expense reports.

Recently, I attended an inspirational talk by Grant Rawlinson (aka Axe) who originated from New Zealand and is currently based in Singapore. He is a professional speaker, adventurer and explorer. He used to be a professional 7 – side rugby player during his younger days (did that for around 25 years) but it ended after an injury. Despite that, he found new challenges — extreme adventures and he has already completed 50 ...

This interview is about a young friend of mine Yong Sheng, 30 who aspire to travel to the seven continents before he reaches age 35. He is also a practicing minimalist with a keen interest in investing and photography. He is currently working as an operation executive in a logistic firm. I’m very impressed on how focus this young chap is and i decided to share his story to a ...

THE BIG PLAN Exactly 5 years ago, I came out with a big plan to aggressively save a considerable portion of our combined income to invest and grow our stock portfolio with a focus on dividend stocks. The objective is to have enough dividends generated from our stock portfolio to cover our annual expenses in 10 years time so that we could get out of the rat race and live on ...
