Recap Of My First Half Of 2015

Time flies, we are already half-way through the year in 2015 and soon we will be celebrating Christmas for 2015 and then 2016 and beyond. Time wait for nobody and since we can't save/deposit it like money, we just need to use it wisely.

It is about time to recap what I've done in the first half of the year, in general. Recently has been busier with work/project and hence has less time to blog but I will still try to squeeze sometime for sharing my thought here. 

So, without further ado, let's do a quick one here:

A. On My Blog :
My blog has crossed the 200,000 Pageviews mark, 217,034 to be exact (at the time of writing), with 632 posts so far. With the average of 340 plus pageviews per post, I am quite happy with the result (you see, I am easily contented man ;-)) 

B. On My Investment
So far, my minion size portfolio is giving me an unrealized loss of 20%. The main contributor (or should I said culprit) is Super Group (S10). Well, my motto is Keep Calm, Keep Going and Keep Smiling, regardless.  

C. On My "Do Good" Spectrum
I think besides focusing on doing well (financially and career wise), it is equally important to "Do Good". Here are some of my proud achievement :

1. Gotten a 10th blood donation medal (first meaningful medal that I am really proud of)

2. Participated twice in volunteering work (organised by Project Awareness), simple gesture but plenty of fulfillment.

3. Up next : getting botak (bald) in Hair For Hope 2015 charity event (July).

How about you? How is your first half of 2015 like?  

Cheers!

  3. Hi Fellow minion sized portfolio,

    As I mentioned in the other comment of your other post, I've been more agressive than you and had losses in the process. I have realized loss of about 3K coz I cut/disposed my losers I bought during my learning process and retained/bought what I feel will be winner in the long run. So far my unrealized + realized + dividends is around 1.2K. So far so good I think. Just sharing. =)

    Regards,
    CM

  8. Really, your spectrum is good and you are doing a very good work on it. Your investment portfolio is the best and you are applying good techniques for the business success. I still run a business consulting firm in India and providing Best Investment Banking Services in India. This information increasing my knowledge about investment. Thanks for sharing this information.
