Aaaaaaaand before we know it, October is upon us. Last quarter to go and we’re toast with 2019. A sneak preview of what’s to come.

Things are looking good for my updated CPF Full Retirement Sum (FRS) goal of hitting FRS by the end of the year i.e. 31st December 2019.

I will be turning 37 soon – it will be a nice birthday gift for myself. The last I checked, there is still 18 years before I am 55 🙂

In a month’s time, our government will (usually) announce the Basic Healthcare Sum (BHS) for the year of 2020. Keep a look out for my blog post in case you’re worried you’d miss it.

We already know that the FRS for 2020 is $176,000 + $5,000 = $181,000. That much we know, but anything beyond 2020 is still a mystery for now.

Come January, it will be time for net worth update. Shifted a little focus to increasing income via side hustle etc and it has been paying off.

The new series of blog posts I started writing on blockchain and cryptocurrency had a way better reception than I was expecting. At the back of my mind, I was assuming the worst that most people will either think whole thing is a scam or would be scared away by the technical concepts. I underestimated the allure of a compelling proposition (free money, free Spotify, haha) and quite a few people ended up using my referrals!

I have a lot more content (such as 50%-Bitcoin/50%-Ethereum auto-rebalancing portfolio, you mean we have them?!) like these steel plates (keep it simple stupid) below but no time to write them 🙁

Last of all, flying to Thailand to celebrate the New Year in business class to end the year that was filled with hard, hard work. Just about the 3-year anniversary of my miles-collecting journey that I started on 1st Oct 2016.

Looking forward to more blog posts to come in the coming months and next year! Ciao! 🙂
