Shifting from CIMB Fastsaver to Singlife

In my earlier post, I shared the breakdown of my $300k+ cash with most of it parked in CIMB Fastsaver.

That was because CIMB Fastsaver was giving out 1% interest without me having to jump through hoops. However, the rates have now revised downwards to an effective 0.825%.

I was suddenly reminded that Singlife not only provides 2.5% for the first $10k, but also awards 1% for the next $90k. As such, I've decided to transfer up to $100k to Singlife. 

I've been using Singlife for the past 2 months. However, I've only been putting $10k to receive the 2.5% interest which is 🤯

Each month, I look forward to seeing the interest generated. For the past 2 months, I've been getting $20.28 and $20.95....and withdrawing it out immediately LOL. The good thing about Singlife is you can withdraw and top up any time without penalty. It will also provide death benefit on your account value.

It's really good money and I've even gotten my mum to sign!

$10 referral

If you are keen to sign up and receive $10, pls 

  • Click on this link via your mobile 📱
  • You'd be brought to download the Singlife app
  • Create a singlife ID
  • Order your visa debit card (it's free) and activate it!
Pls remember to load $10,000 to receive the 2.5% interest! If you have spare cash lying around, you can only consider topping up the next $90k to enjoy the 1% interest!

Once done, you and I will receive $10 in the Singlife account😊


  1. I did the same too. Just curious why did you withdraw the interest amount from the Account instead of leave it there to accumulate interest (even though it’s @ 1-% only)?

    1. Because it only hit me two days back that the amount beyond $10k earns 1%! I thought it was 0% 🤦‍♀️

I finally cross $700k networth, after 1 year 4 months

I wondered how I should kickstart this post - should I be positive or negative about this? After 1 year 4 months, I finally crossed $700k in networth - returning back to where I've been at, back in Dec 2021.  I am disappointed.  For the past many years, I've always been growing my networth, at around $100-$150k/year. I had big plans to hit a net worth of $850k by December 2022, but the universe had other plans for me. Instead, I only managed to reach $646k, leaving me with a $204k gap to my target.  Ever since I became more aggressive in my "investment" portfolio in 2021, being sucked by greed to deploy most of my cash into stocks and crypto, I fell heavily, along with the crashes. Crypto wiped out 5 digits savings, so did the stock market.  To be honest, ever since the crashes and a bad hit to my net worth, I actually didn't do anything special to improve. I didn't make drastic spending cuts, I didn't stop my holidays, I didn't continue investing (no

First CPF top up in Jan 2023 and tax relief concerns

Detailing my yearly CPF top-up and thoughts.  This is my 8th year of top-up. 1. Top-up $2.5k to Medisave via Paynow Did a $2,500 top up to my Medisave, bringing it to 2023 MA ceiling of $68,500. Done the same for my husband as well. 2. On hold - To top up $5.5k to SA or no? Contrary to the past where I top-up at the start of the year, I have decided to hold off the top-up. A) Running out of cash Firstly, I'm running out of cash. I'm berating myself for degrading to the past where I look forward to my monthly income for cashflow. So I can build up my $100k capital in savings account again, given the current high interest environment.  B) Hitting FRS soon = no tax relief Secondly, I'm concerned about reaching FRS too soon.  The FRS this year is $198,800. I'm now sitting on ~$157k SA which means $41,800 away from reaching this ceiling.  I know some people encouraged maxing this out ASAP. But, as I've crossed 6 digits annual income, maxing FRS soon meant lower tax relie

What the luck? DBS and OCBC banking tokens died!

What luck. My ibanking tokens went dead one after another. OCBC Token First was my OCBC token. It said "low battery", but I ignored it. And when I finally need to use it, it was dead. Granted that I could use SMS OTP, I had to make a big transfer to other banks and it was over the withdrawal limits. And to do that, I needed the ibanking token. And serve me right for not activating the onetoken. In the end, I had to call in to OCBC call centre for a replacement. 7 working days, they said. What a long wait. In the midst of it, I needed to make my interbank transfers. I even went down to OCBC bank and explored a stupid manual way i.e to withdraw cash and deposit into the other bank. But the moment they told me they ran out of big notes, I got scared. While waiting for the token to arrive, I figured I could actually do transfers in smaller amounts, but had to bear with a daily cap. Sigh. And, one week later, my OCBC token arrived. How efficient.
