I don’t see the need to limit or restrict myself in Singapore. I found meaning in life through giving, so probably I would involve myself with activities that allows me to give, Be my knowledge, experience or even fund to the less fortunate.

It has always been a dream of mine to open an ice cream cart and sell ice cream to Primary School kids LOL. So that's that.

I would also spend my time reading books, watching netflix, going for walks, exploring unknown places (yes, even in SG), going for courses (e.g. pottery, painting classes etc).

Of course, you can always travel esp if you are financially independent. I would definitely head to Australia for my retirement trips.

Hi Anon,

I don't plan to retire but if I were to do so, here's my gameplan:

  • Buy an island

  • Build a house there (DIY)

  • Grow a few crops and raised some animals (anything that could catch Covid-19 is still okay)

  • I might not have internet access on my island, but I can spend hours fishing and swimming!

Cheers,

Pascal

There are many places to explore in Singapore, from East Coast Park to the museums that are free of charge. There are also clubs organised for the seniors and tour groups too.

Community centres also provide a wide selection of activities to spend time on. If you are seeking a more meaningful approach, volunteering at animal shelters or orphanage and care centres would be a meaningful experience too. You can also start a hobby that you'd forgotten about like painting, knitting or even dancing too.

You don’t have to retire in SG. You can use SG as a base and do arbitrage.

At 62 years old, we are actually still not that owe. I guess will be either spending time with the family and grandkids, and than go travel and see the world.

Of course, I am expecting to receive a constant dividend income by than to support my future travels. Work hard when I am younger. Play hard when I am order.

Retire in some other country is one of my plan, and involve in charity work.

FI doesn't mean u need to retire and do nothing, it gives you the option to do things that you love and don't have to worry about money.

Continue to work! Retirement does not mean stop working, but it can mean working in a job or area that you love and money is not the issue. Most successful entrepreneurs and people continue to work in areas they love till their 80s or 90s....

Do what you love! Eg. write a book, spend your time volunteering, hanging out with family or your grandchildren, travel the world, etc. The possibilities are endless when you don't have to worry about having enough money to pay the bills :)

You can continue to work but maybe part time instead. Volunteer work, overseas trip and so on. Or just enjoy retirement overseas.
