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!

The Nature Of Ants and Grasshoppers

Hmm .... somehow have this observation made from encounters in the cyber world and from fellow colleagues.

When we see older Ants still busy collecting foods; they are likely to be married with children.

When we see older Grasshoppers still dancing in the Rain; they are likely to be singles.

Chun bo?


  1. Hello CW, I think that is an accurate observation. I feel that married folks with children hardly have time (and occasionally money) for themselves, let alone dance in the rain. When one partner is a Grasshopper, the other is likely to have a more challenging life.

    My personal opinion.

  2. Quite Chun.

    Unless the grasshopper is enjoying his life to the fullest while they are young; else they may feel lonely when they are old..... but some of them still very Kiam Siap.

    No offend to anyone out there... just an observation.

  3. My cohort of friends with teenage/young adult children are mostly grasshoppers mindset to travel the world. But they downgrade to not having a car or downgrade to HDB.

  4. CW,

    Its a state of mind. I see it as something we are born with; not something we learned.

    The best clue to who we really are is to observe our behaviours when we are very young - preferably primary school or before ;)

    In the Nature vs Nurture debate, I tend to side with Nature.

    But if I'm making a living as a snake-oil selling courses, I would definitely say its Nurture!


    And yes, I'll never say anyone can make it in investing or trading - a big portion of the Mind part of the 3 Ms is what we are born with ;)
