I bought the dip for crypto and stocks


Back in Feb, I shared about my foray into the crypto world here. The only platform I'm using is Gemini (you can refer to my guide and referral link)

In just a short 3 months, the volatility of the market has been insane. I started off with only hundreds. As the prices went up, I bought more thinking it will rise higher. My portfolio then reached thousands.

And then it dropped.

I shan't act brave, but my eyes widened each time I opened my app. 1 month back, I was at 20% paper gains, but today, I am at negative. 

Despite that, I see this as a good time to DCA. That said, ironically when the crypto market tanked a few days back, I couldn't enter gemini due to system error. My husband faced the same for binance as well.

I currently hold only BTC and ETH. My husband has been more adventurous to hold a lot more alt coins and his portfolio is a 5 digit figure. I am actually glad that he is taking steps to invest as he isn't keen on managing his money.

Not that I am great either because I accumulate my wealth mostly through employment/savings, not investments. But, we are taking baby steps.

PS - If you are keen to kickstart your crypto journey, do consider signing up for Gemini via my referral link here where we'll each receive $10 BTC. Thanks in advance.


Back in Jan, I mentioned I had doubled my stocks portfolio in Tiger brokers to $70k.

Other than deploying my warchest towards crypto, I have been accumulating more tech stocks and REITS. Since Jan, I've pumped $50k into the following:

- Tencent 

- PA Good Doctor

- Nvidia

- Coupang

- Lion-OCBC Sec HSTech

- Ascendas

- Keppel DC

All through Tiger Brokers. They are now offering 1 Starbucks stock for new joiners. You may refer to my post back in Aug 2020 on the beginner guide to set up the account.

If you are keen to receive the free share and use Tiger Brokers , kindly use my referral link, or scan the QR code to sign up😊 

Lastly, 600k in net worth soon.

In Dec 2020, I celebrated crossing $550k in networth. I am estimated to hit $600k networth in Jun.

I look forward to sharing this via a new post soon!💪

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?
