Two key question posed to Uncle8888 during by younger and older relatives during this CNY: (1) How to pass your time? (2) Is your retirement life sustainable over next few decades? Uncle8888 over the past one decade has been thinking about it. It is not just about reaching the edge of Financial Independence and declaring freedom. There is still some serious works to be completed to build sustainable retirement income for life model. It may not be wise to build this model based on too much leverage as leverage is always one double edge sword. As retiree depending on tight cash flow, he has to seriously weigh on cash-back model like S-REITs. No money back!
I am 61 yrs old uncle living in HDB heartland who has achieved financial independence @ 56 and retired @ 60 from full-time job as employee.
Single household income since 1995 with three children. Eldest son and daughter are now working and youngest son still in his 2nd year uni in SUTD.
I have been doing long-term investing and short-term trading in Singapore stock market only since Jan 2000 so I am that Panda or Koala in the investment world; but I am still surviving well in the wild.
I am now executing my Three Taps solution model to maintain sustainable retirement income for life till 2038.
