Weekend Sharing - Something New , Something Fresh!

Happy Deepavali to all the Hindu friends who are celebrating the festival!

Time fly, we are at another weekend and it is already the last weekend of Oct 2016. We are one month plus away from Christmas and then here come the 2017 (the Year of Rooster, according to the Chinese Zodiac). 

Today, I will write something off the market, something new, something fresh that I've done/experienced in the month October. Since I have zero action ON the market (except collecting dribs and drabs of dividend once in a while. So, I will focus on the OFF the market stuff :-)


1. Enrolled myself with the company's lunch-hour health program (to counter hypertension, my BP is on the high side). It's a 3-month long program with health talks and exercises, hence, first time in my life doing an 1 hour non-stop Zumba with some of the colleagues. Intense and tiring but a very fulfilling. 

2. Enrolled myself with the National Steps Challenge Season 2 (organized by HPB, click here to find out more details if you are interested). Basically, HPB will provide you with a step tracker and encourage the participants to walk (objective : 10,000 steps a day). 
Free Step Tracker
To encourage more participants to participate in this national healthy lifestyle movement, besides throwing in the tracker and some free stuff in the goodies bag, if you've achieved certain steps milestone(s), you can redeem free CapitaVouchers or NTUC Vouchers, I've just gotten my $5 voucher :-) 


1. Visited Asian Civilization Museum (ACM) for the first time, an eye opener to see quite a number of different displays like Tang Shipwreck, Ancient Trades like ceramics, textiles etc..Oh, this weekend (28 and 29 Oct 2016), they are also having the River Nights 2016 program with numerous performances and lighting shows (if you are interested, click here for more details). 

2. Visited the IMAX theater in Melbourne (Australia) for the first time, the screen is generally wider and longer than Singapore's (the IMAX theater at Shaw Lido) and the tickets price is slightly more expensive than Singapore. The show that we've watched is a documentary called "A Beautiful Planet" (narrated by Jennifer Lawrence)

3. Met up with a veteran retail investor and peer financial blogger whom officially went FI recently. Great sharing session (mainly from him) on his life and investment strategy. Feel great to be able to finally tag the face to the blogger that commented so regularly on each other's blogs.  


1. Speaking is one of my weakness, so, in order to face it head on, I decided to create a Video Channel as a mini project to brush up my speaking skills and at the same time sharing my thought on the topic closer to heart i.e. Happiness! The title of my video channel is called UP the Happiness and I've decided to create a new Page in this blog to share the new episodes here

That's all for now! What about you? What is your new life experience in the month of October 2016?
