My First Birthday In Investing Year


Yesterday is my 43rd birthday (in human year) but it is also my FIRST birthday day in investing year. Ya, I know, I am probably 20 or 25 years late (in investing) but it is always better to be late than never ;-)
 
It is an enriching 2014 for me, not exactly in the monetary term (yet) but in term of accumulating my knowledge and experience. To the minimum, I did finally START somewhere. You can check out my earlier post here on how I did so far in my young investing journey.

My birthday wish (for my investing self)? I guess I will continue to learn more, to understand more and create a size-able portfolio (comprises of local and foreign markets in Stocks, REITS and ETFs) for another stream of passive income stream. So, barring any unforeseen circumstances, I will be more active in my investing journey from 2015 onwards.
 
How do I celebrate my birthday? I like to keep thing simple, so, just went for an IMAX 3D movie (The Hobbit - The Battle of The Five Armies) outing with wife. Oh, by now you should know that I am a movie buff! lol
 
Can you still recall your first anniversary of your investing year?
 
Cheers!

  3. Curious to know.

    For last 2X years what did you do with your saving?

    IPOs, unit trusts, bank structured products or insurance product?

  4. Hi Richard

    Happy birthday and 1st year celebrations to your first year of investing.

    I hope it encourages you more than it discourages you and hope you find some meaningful interaction between the finance blogosphere. :)

      Yes, in fact, I enjoy more in learning and interacting with peer bloggers than actual investing lol
