I started serious Investing Journey in Jan 2000 to create wealth through long-term investing and short-term trading; but as from April 2013 my Journey in Investing has changed to create Retirement Income for Life till 85 years old in 2041 for two persons over market cycles of Bull and Bear.

Since 2017 after retiring from full-time job as employee; I am moving towards Investing Nirvana - Freehold Investment Income for Life investing strategy where 100% of investment income from portfolio investment is cashed out to support household expenses i.e. not a single cent of re-investing!

It is 57% (2017 to Aug 2022) to the Land of Investing Nirvana - Freehold Income for Life!

Learning or improving your investing knowledge and skills from Financial Bloggers and Forumers???

Just For Thinking ....

Learning or improving your investing knowledge and skills from Financial Bloggers and Forumers???

Uncle8888's advice to newbies or average investors.

Read the story below and  FULLY UNDERSTAND the Moral of the Story

The Hen & the Pig Go To Breakfast

A Hen and a Pig were sauntering down the main street of an Indiana town (yes, this is another shaggy dog story!) when they passed a restaurant that advertised “Delicious ham and eggs: 75 cents.”

Sounds like a bargain,” approved the Hen. “That owner obviously know how to run his business.

“It’s all very well for you to be so pleased about the dish in question,” observed the Pig with some resentment. “For you it is all in the day’s work. Let me point out, however, that on my part it represents a genuine sacrifice.”


Your favourite financial bloggers or forummers may be the HENS; but are you the PIG?

Did you really fully understand the Moral of the Story???


  1. :) I used to visit forums when I just started. There are genuine people who wanted to help but usually quarrels occur when views differ and names calling start when both sides cannot agree to disagree. People start to leave the forums or stop posting altogether. Of cos there are also the hens who advised people to buy a particular stock with ulterior motive. But it is always difficult to judge a motive behind the screens. :)

  2. I know of a closed forum, where posting are usually "challenge" if no reasons, or sound info given to back it, up by the founder and other forummers.

    This is to prevent selfish or ulterior motives, as all info stated are supposed to be back up by sound and valid analysis.

    It is ok to have some "gaps" in the learning path, but it is not ok, to induce others to buy or sell, for selfish agenda. So the "gaps" in the analysis are usually assisted by more questions being asked along, to help the student learn and have a more in depth knowledge.

    This also instill confidence in the students, and graduates, in their learning and knowledge, and to continue to improve on themselves.
