Uncle8888 read this morning from FB and smiled .. “a) I transferred my CPF-OA to CPF-SA because I don't want my future girlfriend to see a single cent in my CPF-OA and push me to buy a private condominium. Today, I get over $10k from the CPF board on my interest alone for my SA and MA accounts.” Walan! Read?Encountering At Least One Major Economic or Market Crisis Is Good For Our Future Prospectives!!! (Time for a re-fresh) Food for thought for some wives to unduly pressurize your hubby with such thought? On Housing Upgrade For years, he has resisted Auntie8888 from housing upgrade and he chooses to be debt free for the rest of his life without having sleepless nights over future economic and market cycles. A man is not a man; until there is a house that he may call his castle. A woman is not a woman; until she has a place she may call her home. And neither a man nor a woman can say anything about their house, until they are the masters of it, and own it outright and unencumbered. - Albert Yang
Yesterday morning; one new Starfish and his wife bought Uncle8888 breakfast at Hougang mall for chatting and he told him he did the same thing on housing. For years, he has resisted her wife from housing upgrade from HDB to private condo! Now the couple is talking about securing their retirement planning and retirement income for life; and realized the financial benefits of staying in HDB heartland. Heartland is good those don't feel a hole in their heart in a place called home!
