[GIVEAWAY] What is a big 'treat yourself' purchase that you totally regret making? Why did you make it?
Amanda

Answered 3w ago
Wow I actually have quite a number of purchase that I regret But one of the purchase/ habit that I regret the most was changing my phone regularly in the past when my contract was due. My phone bills used to sky high - $70/month (for the last 6 years), provided if I didnt exceed my data (7gb) Just earlier this year when my contract was due I decided that instead of recontracting and getting a brand new phone I would continue using my phone and sign up for a SIM-only plan. This has saved me quite a bit of money ($65/month - savings from my phone bill and $1000 - savings from phone). Because my workplace has wifi and I have a workphone with 40gb internet, I decided to opt for circleslife $5 plan (2gb). With only 2gb, I make it a point not to use my phone too frequently when I am out with my friends. This has allowed me to have more quality time with my friends and SO. And suprisingly, I do not finish using the 2gb/ month!

[Mother's Day 2020 Campaign] What is the BEST personal finance lesson your mum taught you and why? Let us know and for one of you, we’ll send a cake your way for your mum this Mother's Day on Sunday!?

This finance lesson is probably different from what many parents tell their children. Most parents will instill the mentality of how money is so important and how we should save up in their children. But for my mom she always tell us " money is just an idea " or " money is just a tool stop being so obsessed over it " and her point in saying those is to let us know that money is an idea of what we think it is : if we think that we have not enough money to get something we want then we will always have not enough money. She believes that instead of thinking to yourself you dont have enough money to afford something you should always ask yourself how you can afford that item. And most peoples' answers to how to afford something is by saving. But once again she will challenge this idea and tell us" what are other ways to get that dream item Instead of saving up "how Long do u want to take to save ? Do you know how long you need to save to retire?" This is because she believes money is in abundance and not shortage and the idea of money people have is important. By always focusing on saving, one is living in shortage as they have the idea that they can't get more money so they end up saving. Instead focus on the abundance of money in the world, make your money work for money by generating passive income to give you your dream life. She always stresses how one's idea of money Is so important. She also believes that money is just a tool. Dont focus on working for money, focus on how to make your money work for you . " Stop being so obsessed about money " what I always hear from her. She would always remind us to be obsessed on working to LEARN and not working to earn , this is because she believes when we work to learn we will eventually let the money work for us. Her constant reminders taught me that instead of focusing so much on the whole idea on money, focus on increasing your financial education and learning how to make money work for you. i really appreciate my mom's teachings even though it might be very different from what society thinks and I'm grateful that she has taken so much time to instill in me all these lessons

Made kimchi with mum and bro a few days ago which we finally got to taste it today! How much it cost: - < 10 dollars (a rough estimate for all ingredients, depending on the amount of kimchi you'd like to make) Ingredients: - Basics: Cabbage + radish + scallions - Paste: Garlic + ginger + red chili powder + salt + fish sauce (optional, but more fragrant if you add it) Share why you decided to cook that dish(es) - Because Mum and I are korean-food addicts, or I should say we have an undying love for kimchi! And CB has forbidden us to visit those restaurants which serve unlimited kimchi....hence homemade it is then. - A perfect dish that goes well with anything, you can even make a stew / soup / pancake / fried rice with it. Go wild with your creativity! A useful cooking tip you have: - Make sue you press the mixture firmly into jars / containers until the water level starts rising. This is the key! P/S: Making kimchi wasn't as difficult as I thought it is. Also a good way to bond with your fam / partner when the kitchen starts to get messy, stinky and filled with loads of fun! :) !

1. Savings 2. Insurance 3. Investment In this time of economic instability, SAVINGS is very applicable to me as it is very important to be more thrifty. Currently, my part time job is on hold and having no source of extra income has taught me to cut down on unncessary expenses and only to spend on daily necessities. I've been using the seedly finance tracker to help me monitor my progress

[GIVEAWAY] What are the five pillars of success and how will you apply them in your own career?
Darren
Darren, Business Analytics Undergrad at NUS
Level 5. Genius
Answered on 22 Apr 2020
The five pillars are: DGLAP. Dreams, Goals, Learning, Plan and Action. How will I apply them? 1. Dream - After my final exams, I plan to sit down and seriously think about my career. What are the hypotheses I have about various careers and what is achievable for me. 2. Goals - SMART: To start of, I plan to reach out to 20 different professionals in the field of analytics and organize a short call with them. I plan to spend exactly 20 hours over 5 days to work on a personal analytics project. 3. Learning - What do I want to learn? Beyond technical skills, big picture thinking and development of soft skills and networking capability. How? Linked to (2), where I am to craft messags for 20 professionals. 4. Plan - Consistency is key. I plan to reach out to someone every 2 days, and followup 3 days after. I will use an excel sheet with conditional coloring. Beyond that, the body is the temple of the mind. I will continue on my habit of 15 pullups and 100 pushups daily. 5. Action - heading to linkedin to reach out now!

Property if not used as an asset, becomes a liability. So if I own a property, I will prefer to generate cashflow and future capital gains if possible. The economics point of view. Home is where our loved ones are and is meant for staying in and creating memories. It need not be tied to a property, though in Singapore, it conventionally is. The people maketh a physical home also 'home' in the emotional and mental sense. That said, I see HDB primarily as a home then secondarily as a possible investment asset. I won't want to use it as a base asset to flip property though I might explore to rent out some rooms or conduct lessons in the home or use it as a home studio. I will see other properties (the second one, private properties, freehold, overseas) and REITs as an investment instead. In a nutshell, I will only take the risk on what I can afford to lose and not on what I cannot. One additional reason is that HDB, like CPF, is protected from bankruptcy claims. So the safety net is a draw to me as a good stable foundation, at least for my lifetime. PS: Stayed in three HDB units owned by my parents. Moved twice, once for downgrade, one for Sers.
