131,308 Miles Later – My Air Miles Project 1-Year Anniversary

It wasn’t that long that that I embarked on my Project Singapore Airlines Suites. See my project progress here and subsequent posts here, here, here and here. True that it is impossible for an average Joe to achieve the magical 1-million miles in the span of one year, but what I did managed to achieve was a fraction of that – a mere 10% of it at 100,000 miles. Starting with my original goal, the lowest hanging fruit is a pair of one-way Suites Class tickets to Beijing for my Great Wall of China bucket list item. There was a minor hiccup...

Just Do This One Thing For Retirement Planning

Firstly, I’d like to say that the below is something that I believe in very strongly. Retirement plans seems like a big and complex subject. If I can reduce it to the irreducible minimum, it means this – that when you retire, you must have three things. You must have a fully paid house. You must have a good medical expense insurance. And of course, you must have a lifelong stream of income. At its most basic level, you must have these three things. And the good news is, our CPF takes care of all these three things, right? Because your CPF...

[Not-So-Frugal Series] Villa 32 : Taipei’s Hidden Hot-Spring Gem

While on the way back to Singapore from Osaka last year, my wife and I made a 2-night stop at Taipei to get re-acquainted with the delicious food and nice folks over at Taiwan. With a 2-night booking already made for a chic hotel in Ximending, it wasn’t in our original plans to enjoy a nice soak at a hot-spring retreat. We’ve heard of the reputation of Villa 32 – an obscure and lush property that caters to the exclusive. As one of only three properties that made it to Relais & Chateaux (Taiwan) list of accommodations, expectations are...

ComfortDelgro vs Grab : The Pain Will Continue

Disclaimer : I’m not invested in ComfortDelGro. I’m just interested in the changing landscape! The share price of ComfortDelGro has fallen a fair bit in recent days on the back of negative news, one after another. I’m not interested in getting in, though. Many blog posts discuss the business of ComfortDelGro – the taxi segment, in particular, because it is the one that’s in trouble. Just wanted to throw out some observations I’ve made along the way, so that we can look at the situation from the perspective of one of ComfortDelGro’s main rival in the taxi business – Grab. I...
