Give & You Shall Receive A Free E-book worth S$18.90

The Science Of Getting Rich In Bookstores.png Dear all, I am sharing my story of having been retrenched to running my own business here: http://howtosaveandaccumulateonemilliondollars.moonfruit.com Honestly it is quite strange to be so public about one's finances. But I really do want Dennis' good ...

Why You Should Always Aim To Be Underpaid

Hello all! After a long hiatus, I am glad to announce another way Real Life Theory is sharing through blog articles. This was one of the last things that Dennis had asked me to do as an add-on to the website. Here's the first one inspired by the last week's historic strike in Singapore. It's all abo...

Re: Be Prudent and Buy Homes within Your Means

This poster was inspired by the recent case of the HDB Executive Maisonette in Bishan which sold for $980,000. Please share it with non-graduates who may inadvertently overstretch themselves financially.

Re: The World Tomorrow and How Jim Rogers Sees It

This is especially for those who had questions for Jim Rogers. As much of the conference was in Q&A style, some version of your questions was asked, and I inferred Jim's answers from there. Also I did ask some direct questions to him whenever I got the chance. Enjoy! Feel free to share :) and fo...

Re: The World Tomorrow and How Jim Rogers Sees It

Hi Candy, About the 2 books mentions, after reading the synopsis, Flow is spot on. Mike Bellafiore was basically saying that not everyone should be an intraday trader. One should only be one if when trading, one gets to this state of 'flow' where time stands still....As for Drive, my guess is that t...

Re: Moving Forward to New Forum

Welcome back Zipink, Jamestai and all other "returning sons"! I am so glad to hear from u all again. My belief is that because we are different, we are one. (It is NOT as commonly believed that despite our differences, we are one.) The plurality is what gives this forum strength. After all...

Re: Eulogy for Dennis Ng – Lessons from my teacher

Even in his death, Dennis continues to teach and inspire me. I have made this lesson into a video: HOW TO ACHIEVE IMMORTALITY . It is testament to Dennis' amazing life. Thank you for all that you have given so selflessly. To watch Dennis' final lesson for me, click here: http://www.reallifetheory.co...

Re: Home Buyers still prefer 30 years loan to 50 year loans.

I was re-reading your post, Candy. And I now know why you just called your existing bank, Maybank as there is still a 1.5% penalty...got it.

Re: Home Buyers still prefer 30 years loan to 50 year loans.

Dear Candy, I write this post with tears in my eyes. But in order to continue what Dennis has selflessly started, I am carrying on to respond in this forum as how we have been doing all along. Each giving our points of view from a go-giving perspective. That is what he would want. I'm so glad that u...

Re: Home Buyers still prefer 30 years loan to 50 year loans.

Hi Candy, Yes, you're right abt the loan amount. That's why my mthly repayment is as such. As for refinancing, that is a shame. I supposed you were looking at affordability and stability and so chose a longer-term fixed rate. For me, I was looking for the same so I took a fixed rate, however my lock...

Re: Home Buyers still prefer 30 years loan to 50 year loans.

Hi Candy, This is the perfect example of why we should NOT believe what's published in the news! If you scroll up, I posted that the numbers in the article are wrong, and I have called the reporter up to rectify. That's why the numbers don't add up. The refinancing was done a couple of years ago whi...
