Shameless plug for my own Twitter account where I post A LOT of content that don’t go on this blog or on Facebook.
Figured I’ll do a “best of” post once in a while. Sometimes I tweet more, sometimes a lot less.
Anyway, most of the time you can click on the picture to view the entire Twitter thread. I have also tagged them according to their respective categories that you also can find on the menu bar on top.
I started investing with AutoWealth in October 2017 and they have done admirably well in the past 33 months – better than STI and VT. Blog post will come soon.
Most of us are climbing up mountains, and very little thought has gone into decumulation – that I’ll admit.

As of right now, two-thirds of my blog traffic originates from mobile devices – which is an absolutely crazy percentage. It would be insane to ignore this huge slice of the pie.
Bali continues to struggle with the situation and things won’t be looking good for a while.
My Thoughts –
The “Peter Principle” is expressed as: “In a hierarchy, every employee tends to rise to his level of incompetence.”
Came across this on a (Mandarin) YouTube video which I can definitely identify with, having being repeatedly pushed and jostled into positions that I absolutely hated, simply because I had done my job well.
Yeah, I watch a lot of these kind of YouTube videos and they are amazing gems!

Hello! I’m Kevin, Turtle Investor
At the age of 30, I am the personal finance blogger who laid claim to a negative net worth of minus $25,755.
Seven years later in 2019, I hit CPF Full Retirement Sum (FRS) of $176,000 without making a single cent of CPF top-up. More tidbits about myself here if you’re curious. My blueprint for financial independence can help give you a headstart in your own FIRE journey.
I am married to a lovely wife and that means dual income with no kids. In my free time, I chase miles so that we can fly in business class. My hobby is making pocket change off this blog and sharing everything I know with you!
