The great thing about doing side hustles to generate extra income is that you can hustle on your own terms.  The more hard work, time, and creative effort you put in, the more extra money you can make.  You can hustle as little or as much as you want, whenever you want.  It’s your extra money, and you can choose how you want to spend it.  Instead of focusing on ...

We enjoyed our time at the Core Mall so much that we came back to spend some more time here.  Inside the Core Mall on the 7thfloor, there is a special area for kids to play called Kidsburgh.  This ocean themed indoor play center has lots of carousels, slides, obstacle courses, two ball pits and an activity center. The facility was very well maintained, with many attendants watching to make sure ...

On my daily walks (~2.5 to 3 miles a day), I enjoy listening to various podcasts.  One podcast I enjoy listening to from time to time is the ChooseFIpodcast.  While most of the concepts presented on the show are not new to me, it’s interesting to hear the various ideas of financial independence (FI) presented as well as interviews with notable financial bloggers.  One episode I recently heard and really ...

Taiwanese breakfast We started off the day grabbing some traditional Taiwanese breakfast at Si Hai Soy Milk King.  Not the most nutritious meal, Taiwanese breakfast is simple and delicious.   Soybean milk is an essential part of breakfast; it is served sweet, salty, plain, hot, or cold.  Twisted cruller, or “you tiao” is basically deep-fried dough.   In Chinese, “you tiao” literally translates to “oil stick.”  You can eat these oil sticks plain, ...

Our family had a great time visiting Tokyo, Osaka, Kyoto and Nara in Japan.  The next destination on our vacation was Taipei, Taiwan.  I booked us 4 free economy flights for 3 adults (myself, my wife, and my dad) and 1 infant with British Airways Avios transferred from Chase Ultimate Rewards points.  Total cost for the 4 of us was only 23,250 Avios and $93.21, great use of Avios.  It ...

Just logged into my Mint.com account and noticed that we hit another major financial milestone: our investments have now surpassed $300,000 in value!  Our investments include money in our Roth IRAs, 401Ks, taxable accounts, and 529.  This does not include money in our checking accounts, savings accounts or our home equity.  With the recent run up in the stock market, our investments have been producing a healthy amount of returns.  It’s amazing ...

My father, who lives in Taiwan, is going to visit us in January 2018.  When he first told me his travel date, we decided to spoil him for his flight.  My wife and I had such a great experiencing flying Singapore Airlines Business Class that I wanted my father to share the experience.  It didn’t hurt that I already had 64,500 Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer miles in my account, previously refunded for ...

Osaka Castle We started off our last day in Osaka visiting Osaka Castle, one of Japan’s most famous landmarks.   The entire castle grounds cover 15 acres.  A wide moat surrounds the high outer walls and gates of the castle.  The entire area is peaceful and clean. Originally built in 1597, Osaka Castle has been through many wars and battles, resulting in many rebuilds and upgrades.  At one point, the castle was a place ...

One of the most popular destinations in Kyoto is the Fushimi Inari-taisha shrine.  The shrine is located just outside of the JR Inari Station.  You can see it as soon as you exit.  The original shrine was built in 711 AD.  You can walk along paths straddled by over 10,000 red/orange (vermillion colored) Japanese gates called torii.   Each of the torii is donated by a Japanese business, which has the name of ...
