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!

Investment Performance Across 22 Yrs In Boring, Uninspiring Super Terrible Index

Old dog can't learn new tricks in the market to go to Moon!

SGX is a Old Age Home for old folks in Singapore to survive on minimum income from the market and supplemented by CPF and CPF Life!

After 22 years across market cycles of Bulls and Bears (WTC Sep 11, SARS, GFC and COVID-19) and 5 years without a single cent for re-investing; the performance is .... sigh!

The only self-consolation is that 2022 will be the year that Uncle8888 will cross the 50% mark to Land of Investing Nirvana!



  1. Uncle8888,

    You've shown the way in terms of letting your winners run run run, averaging down/up into your winners, collecting panadols & capital gains for warchest, and along the way taking out initial capital.

    And having a phase-in approach to deploy warchest depending on severity of market crashes.

    Think many have benefitted from your experience. :)

    As for STI, it was exciting & inspiring from 2003-2010. But after that it went limp compared to S&P500.

    Gen Y who started investing after 2010 have never experienced an exciting STI in their lives (except maybe for S-Reits in 2019).

  2. CW,

    Best wishes for the New Year!

    You stay healthy and fit OK?
