But currently my NW at 26 is about plus minus 300k (not counting CPF) depending on whats Bitcoin doing with about 20k debt (cause i went crazy and bought a couple of random usless purchase). because I been stuck under 1 mil since 2017 so like i guess i was having a mid life crisis moment.

ETF (Single country and reglional ETF like Europe, Latin america, Asia) 13.95%
