ASSI's Guest bloggers

In conversation with AK 2019 (Part 1).

Friday, March 22, 2019

As I cannot post stuff in Facebook anymore, periodically, I will share some of the more interesting conversations I have from time to time with readers as blogs in ASSI instead.

If you don't know what I am talking about, you must have missed my last blog post.

Financially free and Facebook free.

I have a friend, she is reaching 55 this year, she is wondering if she should go for enhanced CPF life.
May you share your thoughts? Thank you

AK says...
If your friend is not a savvy investor, having a larger monthly payout from CPF LIFE is a good choice. 🙂

I done some market study with frens in telco n IT biz as well.

I got a feeling singtel will recover sooner than we expected.

Pricing has stabilised at the moment for them in india n oz

I was told to avoid the starhub totally because this coy doesnt has any more drivers fwrd

Airtel ceo has also said that recovery in 2020.

The ambani case of being used by ericcson will see anil coy to be bot over by his brother mukesh jio reliance soon.

Therefore it will reduced another big player in india.

Ak can u write something abt ocbc?
After recent result?
My feel is coy is too giam siap w dividends

AK says...
I still like SingTel.
Nothing to say about OCBC really except that I agree they are giam siap... 😛

I had to saved, scrimp and also "avoid" big weddings haha

AK says...
Many people I know, including readers of ASSI, earn more money than I did (as a worker).

It is easier for them to achieve financial freedom (than for many average workers).

Just have to keep our needs simple and our wants few (for a start). 🙂

Hi AK,

I like the No 4. It's simple and easy to implement. Simple is the way to go.

Hi Ben,

Not always possible but where it is possible, I keep things simple. :)
