This is somewhat extreme but watch how this Canadian couple chose financial independence over home ownership.  They are in their 30s and,...

ASSI reaches 6 million before Singapore.

Friday, October 10, 2014

Before Singapore hits 6 million in population, ASSI is going to hit 6 million pageviews first. Might happen in the next hour.

It has been almost 5 years since I started blogging. Lots of ups and downs and never did I think ASSI would come so far.

I think I will have to pop a bottle of oatmeal! Oatmeal?

Yes, champagne is too expensive but a picture? No problem. It is the thought that counts. LOL. ;p

Congratulation AK... thanks you for sharing so much over these years... I learned a lot from your blog.

Hi Solace,

12 million... -.-"

I hope I will have enough stamina to keep blogging till then. :)

Hi Mike,

Thank you. It has been quite a journey and getting to know people like you along the way makes it all worthwhile. :)

Hi investor+trader,

Thank you and I am glad that talking to myself has somehow been helpful to you. ;p

Congrats! :)

Many more good years ahead.

AK71 said...

Hi pf,

Thanks but I won't dare to look so far ahead. I will look towards my blog's 5th birthday this Christmas Eve first. Haha... ;)

Congrats! More oatmeal for da man !

AK71 said...

Hi Siew Mun,

I would like to have more chocolates and ice cream, actually. LOL.

Yesterday, I bought an ice cream sandwich from a vendor on motorcycle. I don't see them as often these days. $1.20 only.

Don't have to spend a lot of money to have food that makes me happy. :)

Congrats AK!

goes to show how popular you are. I have learnt alot from you and gain confidence on my investment.

way to go, kudos.

AK71 said...

Hi kwee,

Thank you. :D

However, I think it probably shows that my blog is popular, not me. LOL. ;p

I am happy that talking to myself has somehow helped some fellow investors along the way. Exactly how, I have no idea. -.-"

Cory said...

Congratulation ! You deserve it.

AK71 said...

Hi Cory,

Thank you for the encouragement. You have always been very kind. :)

Ice cream sandwich use to be $1 only. Lol...

Ana said...

well, AK...during the GFC, i made a terrible financial mistake which basically postponed my retirement plans for a long long time.....
it was about the same time i chanced upon your blog, and slowly i built up a portfolio which now - while it still cannot allow me to retire - provides me with some passive income which I think is just sufficient to cover my expenses (excl. mortgage payments). I am now working towards covering all my daily expenses including mortgage payments....
thanks so much!

AK71 said...

Hi Ana,

I have opened cans of worms on my journey to financial freedom too. So, I can understand how you feel. :(

However, unless we are very close to or past retirement age, it is never too late to set things right, I believe. :)

So, I am very happy to learn that your passive income is able to take care of your regular expenses in life now. That is a big step forward and goes a long way towards providing peace of mind. Gambatte! :D

This was almost 9 months ago... The number of pageviews just went past 8 million earlier today... That means ASSI received 2 million pageviews in less than 9 months!

I so stunned like vegetable. :p
