Is getting a degree really worth it?

Answered on 24 Aug 2018
Agree with Gabriel that it is more of a safety net, especially in Singapore i guess. But I think it's kind of difficult to measure its true "worth"? I've enjoyed what i've learnt, and beyond earning the degree, i've got to experience hall life. To me, the whole uni experience was fun, interesting and enriching and it's the whole package that makes up its "worth" for me. That piece of paper did help me secure a job and determined my starting pay. But would I have been able to find a job without the qualification? I'm pretty sure it's possible. At the end of the day, passion, hard work, and motivation all comes into play. With or without a degree, one could do well as long as one is willing to put in the effort.

Exercise together (jogging, cycling, swimming, go for a class or try out new things like rock climbing - get coupons from fave, clickthrough shopback), cook a meal together follow by movie night at home, explore a trail together (hort park, henderson waves, bukit timah), plan for your next vacation (haha.. just need to sit around with your laptop and research). just some silly ideas off the top of my head. ;) have a fun weekend ahead!

Career

At 28 years old, is it too late to start a career from scratch? Assuming no relevant job experience wrt to Diploma taken, and only with sales experience in the financial industry. ?

Never too late to start anything. Just need to manage your expectation with regard to your starting pay in the new profession. It's the same for people in their mid careers doing a career switch. Find something you will enjoy (even if you are not passionate about it) so that work will not just be "work" per se. All the best! :)

How do you guys allocate your take home salary?

Answered on 11 Aug 2018
hmm.. i dun really allocate my salary, but my fixed expenses are allowances from parents, grocery, meals and bills. These amount are more of less around the same range. Hence, I just make sure they don't go beyond the expected amount and I'll just save the rest. On months where there are special expenses (e.g., ang baos for weddings, gifts or dinners for special occasions), I'd either try to spend less in the preceding months (if possible, but cutting grocery) or just take it as dipping into my savings (if grocery is already at the bare minimum).
