1Q 2019 passive income.

Saturday, March 30, 2019

Sometimes, I hear people say that time slows to a crawl once they are retired.

I find that strange because time flies faster than ever for me in my retirement.

Again, 3 months have gone past me in the blink of an eye.

Again, I am reminded that time is too precious for us to simply keep exchanging it for money.

Yes, some people say that time is money.

For me, I say time is more precious than money.

Don't be a wage slave but also don't be in a situation where we have too much money and not enough time.

Financial freedom and not enough time.

Now that the philosophical moment is over, how much did I receive in 1Q 2019?

S$ 71,052.90

Sounds like a lot of money, doesn't it?

It sounds like a lot to me, anyway.

It is this much because of RHT Health Trust's bumper income distribution which is not going to be repeated.

If we disregard RHT Health Trust, my largest passive income contributors in 1Q 2019 are:

1. SingTel



For most of us, investing for income will most likely make a meaningful difference to our financial health.

I believe that patience will be rewarded and it is often so for me.

If AK can do it, so can you!

Believe it.

Believe in yourself.

Hi Laurence,

It is all relative, of course. :)

Interesting how you compute dividend into 1Q 2019 because I noticed Singtel which last Ex-div in dec 2018 but paid in Jan'19.

No updates liao... How is the market now ? With the trade war looming, what is the general feel now? Missed your thoughts...

Hi Cory,

I count something when I see it. ;p

If you remember, I actually keep money in a tin at home.

Very uncle and not an accountant.

Please forgive me. :p
