About Me

Web Hosting

I am a working salaried professional in my mid 30s. Just like most Singaporeans, I worked long office working hours, often trying very hard to find some work life balance.

The Sweet Retirement Blog was created to share my journey towards achieving a comfortable retirement life. I believe we cannot simply rely solely on our Central Provident Fund savings when reaching old age. Neither can we rely solely on our bank savings as we all know the interest rates cannot beat inflation.

I am a strong believer that an early and comfortable retirement can be achieved by value investing and accumulation of passive income through stocks that pays stable and consistent dividends.

If I am lucky, I hope to reach financial independence and financial freedom before the age of 55!

  1. Hi there, it’s good that you have a goal for financial independence before 55. However, I’m just wondering why you are finding your work so stressful? It is really not possible work enjoy your work, find meaning in your work, and do it for the challenge, satisfaction and stimulation? Why wait until financial independence to “do what you choose” ?

    1. Hi Siak Lim,

      It is difficult to describe how I felt about office jobs. The demands from the company just make the job stressful. (E.g. after office hour support, long working hours, office politics, profit and loss). The working hours are also very inflexible. Housing loans, car loan, child school fees all make up for the stress in my life.

      By achieving financial independence, this means I can wake up anytime I want, go wherever I wish, do whatever I want to.

      Best Regards

  2. Hi (sorry don’t know your name),

    perhaps I’ve left the corporate world many years ago, and beginning to forget the corporate politics, demanding bosses and long working hours issues. I’m in a self employed arrangement now, so I have to worry about real business issues, but no politics and corporate ladder to climb and promotion to fight for…. My result is purely based on my ability and effort, which is a fair deal I feel.

    Anyway, nice chatting with you and I wish you can achieve your financial independence before 55! Jia you! 🙂
