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!

Long-Term Investing Is More Like Walking Round After Round At Your Favorite Park Rather Than Running A Marathon!

Market is nothing more than cycles of Bulls and Bears going round and round. After completing each round; what did you see (wait/buy/hold/sell/collect dividends) along the walking path? 

Are we feeling happier, sadder, regret, sorry, immune or chopped fingers and never again walking these silly endless loops. 


  1. CW,

    I like your analogy!

    It's better than the long-term Marathon that's being sold by financial advisors to their bei kambings...

    "Look! Unrealised losses are not real. Just hold. Long term stocks always go up one!"

    How else to calm the fears of their sales funnel flock while continuing to milk and fleece them forever and ever?

    Like the pic in your masthead - if we don't pick our ripen fruits during harvest season, they will just rot away!

    People forget long-term is the true enemy.

    For long-term we all die...

    What's the point if I don't get to do the wine, song, and women before I go?

  2. sometimes walk Botanical Gardens, GBS, Lakeside Gardens, Bukit Timah and etc. Each one round and round but never the same

  3. Agree to certain extent.
    How about twisting the word marathon?

    Can a marathon be walking round & round the park until one collapses. Up the Lorry if no dementia or sickness then must be due to old age failure of body's organ.

    Still find it fun, walking the marathon leh?
