“There’s No Way I Can Save Up For That”

Don’t you just hate it when you hear lame, generic advice that everybody knows? You know what I’m talking about: “Just eat less and exercise more!” “Make sure you leave work on time!” Or my personal favourite: “Spend less than you earn!” Ohhhhh man. One of the reasons why I stopped reading personal finance books […]

What A Priest Taught Me About The Meaning Of Work

WOW. You guys are awesome. After last week’s post “Is Your Work A Necessary Evil?”, you sent me dozens of long, well-written answers to my questions. THIS IS WHY I LOVE HAVING A BLOG. But today’s post isn’t about financial freedom. Instead, I wrote this post because I found a fascinating invisible script among some answers […]

Is Your Work A Necessary Evil?

So I was hoping you could help me out with something. I’ve been pondering it all weekend and I just can’t figure it out. Usually, when this happens, I sit down and do a brain dump of all the thoughts swirling in my brain. Then I organise it, write several drafts, find a nice picture, […]

A Singapore Millennial’s Take On Avocado Toast

Poor Tim Gurner. He’s the Australian millionaire who recently got destroyed online for claiming that millennials would be able to afford their own homes if they just stopped spending money on “smashed avocados and $4 coffee.” Millennials around the world were up in arms, firing back with some (hilarious) sarcastic replies: I was gonna put a […]

How To Find The Famous Three Blue Domes In Santorini

When my wife and I were honeymooning in Santorini, we knew that we had to take that picture of the famous 3 blue domes. Yes, Santorini has dozens of blue-domed churches, but there’s only ONE place where you can take that famous picture you see on virtually every Santorini postcard. You know the one I’m talking about: You would think […]

New Talk: Investing With Less Stress

Last week, my wife and I flew into Athens airport where we were connecting to another flight to Santorini. We planned a 2-hour connection window – usually more than enough time – but our inbound flight into Athens was late. Uh-oh. To make matters worse, we ran into a yuuuuuuge queue at immigration. There were just 2 counters […]
