Pfizer covid-19 vaccine first shot done

Just so I can remember this "historical" moment.

I've completed my first shot on 26 Jun. This was probably the earliest slot that I find at my CC.

The wait

While my slot was at 4.30pm, I reached ~4pm (thanks to gojek for the free ride😊). When I reached the CC, it was pretty packed. Queued for around 5-10 mins before we were ushered to sit down. The whole process was orderly, and everyone were patient.

Seats were spaced apart in orderly manner and everyone was compliant. I think I only managed to enter the main hall for injection at around 5pm. 


Inside the main hall, I was ushered to the registration counter and passed my IC over for verification. They will ask if you are feeling ok and check if you have any known allergies.

Once registered, I was surprised to know that I'd head over to the booths for injections. Thought I'd need to wait again.

Booth for injection

Inside the booth, the nurse would verify your identity and ask the same questions - whether you feel ok, or any allergies. She also mentioned that it is normal to feel soreness and slight fever. If it persists, see the doc. I wasn't really paying much attention to her because I couldn't really hear well in the hall.

She later asked where I'd like my injection on to which I mentioned my left. Lifted my sleeve up and OUCH. It wasn't a smooth injection because it did hurt. Though the process may seem quick, the time she jabbed and removed the injection felt like slow motion for me.

I felt soreness immediately and was praying I would not have any adverse reactions.

30 mins wait after jab

I was then ushered to the seats to wait for 30 mins.

Used my phone to pass time. Thankfully, no reactions except soreness.

Exit counter 

Once 30 mins is up, I was called to the exit counters where the staff asked if I was feeling ok. She mentioned some common effects that would happen after the jab, but I wasn't really listening oops. She later passed me a bag and that was it! 3 packs of masks and one bottle of hand sanitizer.

Very appreciative of their gestures but I've a few sanitizer and don't use much! I doubt I'll wear the masks either. Any idea where I can donate them to?

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.
