How To Surrender Your AIA Prime Life Special Policy

Remember that I wrote about surrendering my AIA Prime Life Special policy last year in August? This is a follow up post on that. Quick and easy, I promise! Let’s go back in time for twenty years, and it would be the year 1997. Ignore the glaring red words and focus somewhere near 1997, and it isn’t difficult to note the peak there and then. With 72% allocation in fixed income, it is needless to say that the projections made back then would be pretty tough to achieve. Especially with the prolonged low interest rate environment.

Unlike Misa Travel, Some Agents Can Prosper!

The recent collapse of Misa Travel has been a nightmare for those who have made bookings with them. The “lucky” ones would have bought travel insurance, which would have covered the cost incurred. Those who paid for their trips via credit cards could probably invoke the credit card charge-back feature to recover their money. Still, the inconvenience as a result of this would still piss many people off. If I were in their shoes, I would wreck havoc. OTAs Are Cheaper? The sweeping statements people make tend to gravitate towards “why would people use brick-and-mortar travel agents when online...

Would You Invest $250,000 (Or More) Without Doing Homework?

OK – using the word “investing” might not be the most appropriate. With each successive BTO, the papers would go on and on about how certain popular estates are heavily over-subscribed. Heh. Ever wondered what kind of homework did those couples do before deciding on that $250K (or $500K) HDB apartment? I know of some who don’t even bother to physically check out the neighbourhood. I live in Punggol, which is why I’m particularly interested in what’s in store for my neighbourhood and how it would potentially affect the resale prices of HDB apartments in my area. So, how...
