Big Event and Year 2017 Update

Hi Everyone,

It's been a while since I have update this blog, mainly due to preparation of my big day (my wedding) which leads to insufficient free time to update my blog.

2016 has been a fruitful year for me because there are several happy event took place. First is my wedding and ROM, it was a wonderful event with my wife as we prepare really hard for this (day and night preparing all the things that we need during the actual event). The reason why we are so busy is because we did not hire any event planner thus, we have to do all the planning all by ourselves. The reason why we did not hire any event planner is because of cutting the unnecessary cost and also since wedding is a once in a lifetime event, we should be the one prepare for it so that it will be meaningful to us when we look back after 10, 20 or even 80 years later (if we are still alive).

Second event is that I have revive this blog in around mid of 2016 (May 2016), this is because I want to keep track and share by journey with the readers once again. The journey in 2016 is pretty good and I hope I can maintain it in the future.

Third event is that I have created my own financial tracker (web platform), which helps to monitor my savings, it is called  Big Saving Small Planning. Below is the sample screenshot

Last but not least, I have managed to save 100K cash in December 2016 and my total net worth now is around 140K!

For the year 2017, as I have mention quite a number of times last year, my main target it to purchase 2 bedroom condo. Although the current cash and CPF that I have might not be able to pay the down payment, well, I still have few months more to go. Nothing is impossible for me, I shall go for it and clear this target of mine :)

That's all for this update, will update my report card soon!
