11.11 itchy fingers and Alibaba stock

I didn't plan to buy anything on 11.11 because I didn't have anything to buy.

I did jot down a few items but didn't plan it like how I did one year ago

Back in 2019 11.11, I actually saved around $750 bucks but also blew $5.5k in a single day. HAHA! But at least that was for my new house.

Despite having "nothing much to buy", I still browsed through taobao and carted a few items. Suddenly it turned midnight. With a swipe/refresh, my cart items were now heavily discount  🤑

I just couldn't resist to press BUY.

With 4 items in cart, I saved around 120 rmb (equivalent SGD$24). Beyond this savings, equivalent items sold in Singapore were probably x2-x3 more expensive.

And that's why I love taobao #cheapdeals

Despite Ant IPO falling through, I couldn't resist buying Alibaba stocks during the dip. Look at this record for 2020 11.11! Glad to be part of this although my purchases were meagre $ compared to others 😂

And, I'm officially a shareholder of Alibaba HK. My purchase was done fuss free via Tiger Brokers. I can't emphasis how simple it is for me to make my foreign stocks purchases.

I'm currently sitting on 9,384.97 HKD profits inclusive of my Alibaba purchase. Below snapshot came from Stockscafe which I'm using to track my transactions (kudos to the founder for creating this site)! 

Tiger Brokers Referral

If you are keen to use Tiger Brokers and you'd like to receive stock vouchers to offset your stocks purchases, kindly use my referral link (click link) and/or enter code (SBSL8) or scan the QR code to sign up😊I will receive stock vouchers depending on how much you have topped up for your first deposit.

A top up of $30,000 (instead of $30,001 previously) will grant you a $100 stock voucher to offset your purchase. Do note that the stock voucher is only given for the FIRST top-up. So you may want to think carefully how much first deposit you'd like to put in.

I've already done so for my husband, who is super passive. He wants to be rich but does nothing to make it happen🙄Did a $30k deposit and received $100 stock voucher! Better strike when the promo is ongoing since we aren't sure when this stock voucher rewards will end.

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

Starting 2023 with extra $9,979.20

Happy 2023~! I woke up feeling not very positive. It seems like I've brought forward my 2022 negative thoughts along. I ought to be more optimistic! Anyway, my best way of welcoming the new year is to count the new inflow of $ and here's my CPF interest for 2022: Have you check your CPF interest yet?
