21st birthday

Just hit 21 years old on April.  Did not throw a birthday party, instead just celebrated it with a small group of friends and family. In my spare time I decided to do a review on my goals for 2019.

I took my time to look at the goals that I have set for myself at the start of the year and realised that I have actually managed to hit one of my goal. In regards to health I have been regularly going to the gym. I am actually currently on a diet and I plan to reduce my weight to 60kg by the end of  July. Been doing exercises to try to cut weight but I have not been losing weight (Any advice will be appreciated). Although I am not losing weight, I do feel stronger now and I have been getting sick less frequently.

For wealth, I have decided to put a portion of my money into SSB which I have mentioned in my previous post. I have not invested into the stock market so far, as it is very volatile and I want to park my money into a safe and stable investment with a short time frame of 1-2 years at max.

As for time management, I have in fact been getting lesser sleep than planned. Would have to start working on that soon

Singapore Saving Bonds (March)

Just applied for the Singapore Savings Bond for March, hopefully my application will go through

Interest Rate for March SSB = 1.95% (Short Term)

Rationale behind applying for it and why it took so long before I decided that I should apply.

The situation that I am in is that I will be going to university in about approximately 18 months. I am planning to use the cash that I have on hand for my university fees. I estimate the cost to be at least 30,000 Sgd. Thus the time frame that I have is 18 months and the investment vehicle that I choose has to be non-volatile as I want to protect my principal amount. This would thus eliminate my options of investing in the stock market.

Fixed Deposit vs Singapore Saving Bonds.
Comparing the options that I have. Singapore Saving Bond is currently the better option as the best fixed deposit interest rate right now is CIMB 's 1.9% where I have to commit to 12 months as compared to SSB's 1.95% where it would be more stable and the withdrawal penalty is lower in the event that there is a better interest rate that is stable that will be given out in the future.

Honestly, I should have done this way earlier, but better late than never I guess. If there are better options out there please feel free to recommend it to me and I will read up on it :)

New Goals For 2019

3 Major Goals For 2019


Health

2018, I was sick very often even though I rarely fall sick, so this year, I will be spending more money on my health. By eating healthy and going to the gym more frequently. In addition to this, I tend to overthink a lot and thus this would cloud my vision most of the time.

Eating habits have been bad as I have been consuming too much fast food as it is convenient, I am going to limit my fast food to 2 times a month at most.

50 Push Up

Meditate for at least 20 mins a day






Wealth

I was anxious to get out of the rat race. I will be reviewing things as it goes but my goal for 2019 would be to achieve $50,000 in my portfolio. Current Portfolio - $38,000 in cash 11 months to go





Time


Image result for timeI have not been spending my time efficiently, thus this year, I have set a simple goal for myself. To ensure that I will be getting ample rest preferably at least 7 hours of rest, spending more time with my family and friends. I will travel to other countries whenever I get the time to while I am young












It is a bit early but I wish everyone a happy Chinese New Year
