I am back in Singapore. Got home at 2am and slept at 3am. Woke up at 8am. Unpacked, read the news a bit and replied to comments here in my blog.
Thanks to everyone who sent me well wishes for my trip and apologies to those whom I did not manage to reply to till this morning.
I did not look at the stock market or my blog while I was on holiday in Japan the last 10 days or so. When I looked at my watchlist this morning, nothing has really moved. My portfolio's value has remained almost unchanged.
It is interesting that the HDB is thinking of introducing mechanical car parks for older estates where there is little or no space to build more car parks. I took some photos in Japan of such car parks.
In fact, land shortage is so chronic in Japan that they even have mechnical parking for bicycles!
Some families who own two cars but have only enough space at home to park one car also mechanised the space so that they can park two cars instead of one!
It will take me a while to get back to speed with life in Singapore but it is good to be home. :)
