Birthday, at times means absolutely nothing to most people. But to me, it means everything. It is a time where I can have a nice gathering together with my family and loved ones. It is also probably one of the only time where I can actually pause and reflect on myself. And most importantly, it is where I make my countdown to my RETIREMENT plan (officially 8 more years to retirement). Ok. This is way too early, but still a goal is a goal and I planned to reach it objectively.
I have devised myself a 10 year plan and now I am down to the last 8. It is going to be even more difficult now as my obligations become increasingly more and more.
|Annual Capital Injection||$60,000.00|
|Starting Capital||$100,000.00||- Achieved|
|Average Long Term Dividend Yield||6.00%|
|Year||Year||Starting Capital||Cumulative Annual Capital Injection||Dividends on Starting Capital||Total Yearly Dividend Payout||Monthly Passive Income|
Alright, probably enough about that now. Since the difficult part is done, maybe it's about time to add a little fun stuff to this birthday post edition.
I admit. I went for a shopping spree. Buying clothes, shoes and eating some luxurious meals are not something which I often indulge. But anyone would agree that this was an exception (Hmm, I hope so). Come tomorrow, it'll probably be back to the normal routine, saving up and continuing the journey towards my goal for financial freedom.
Here's some of the things which I bought:
|Lacoste leather shoes @ S$205|
|TH's Long sleeve shirt @ S$150|
|A Wedding ring band @ S$2,500|
|A Pre-wedding package @ S$2,100|
So that is it. I dream today and wake up tomorrow and when I do so, I live to look forward for the next 365 days to my 28th birthday. Until then, I wish everyone healthy and prosperous.
