Aug updates – Quiet quitting, CPF prime up made, SSB Sep 2022

1 12 months into my position and I am jaded. I suppose I will by no means discover a job I am pleased with.

However the comfort is that this job is comparatively simpler than the earlier, so I am simply cruising alongside…till I get fired. 

I resonated with the quiet quitting time period that is been all around the information lately. I suppose I have been quiet quitting all these whereas. Individuals stated it is a time period for cruising, doing the minimal, or acting at your payscale. I’ve all the time been the kind who knock off on time, although I’m extra enthusiastic in my first few work years. One way or the other, my bosses acknowledge my efforts and I haven’t got to wayang. As I get older in my profession, issues change. Due to how “quiet” I’m, I could not get into the great books of bosses. I do not speak to bosses nor trouble speaking to colleagues to showcase what I am doing. I do not trouble  to wayang. I do not trouble suggesting concepts to enhance work – I did attempt lately, however it backfired. I am higher off staying quiet.

The draw back is, I acquire nothing out of this position besides the revenue. I dont acquire new abilities and I really feel I will have difficulties leaping to the following job. As I stated beforehand, I would get too costly to rent. Younger abilities can be a greater guess since they’d be extra keen and are cheaper.

Anyway, I do not wish to suppose an excessive amount of. Work is figure. I’ll simply transfer with the move.

There’s nothing fascinating this month. On monetary entrance, I simply made a CPF prime up right now of $4,344 into my SA. Why this odd quantity? As a result of I did a $3,000 prime as much as my MA in Jan 2022, and $656 prime as much as my MA in Apr 2022 when my NTUC Incomeshield plan deducted $ from my CPF MA. 

I additionally realised CPF made fairly a couple of adjustments to their web site. One way or the other, I favor the older model – lesser phrases, which makes it simpler for me to zoom in on the information eg. how a lot I’ve and the way a lot I’ve topped up. The brand new adjustments present extra wordings, as seen beneath. It will get fairly tiring on the eyes after I see so many phrases. In gist, I’ve max out my $8,000 top-up for 2022 on 30 Aug 2022. #goodjobtomyself

The subsequent step is to top-up one other $8k to my mum. Up to now, I might prime up for her in January. Nevertheless, I have been getting actually money poor. All due to poor funding errors – be it in SG, HK, US shares or crypto. 

I feel I’ve stated a few instances that I exploit to have $300k money at my disposal. As of right now, I solely have $120-130k money unfold throughout my banks and FDs. 

I’m now eagerly ready for every month finish/for my pay to come back in. That feeling kinda sucks. I’ll attempt to prime up her account by Dec 2022, or after I really feel my DBS Multiplier has sufficient money….presently I solely have $30k inside 🙃 a far cry from $100k in my muliplier.

I additionally balloted for the Sep 2022 SSB and put in $10k. Managed to get the complete allotment. 

Aside from that, there’s nothing to shout about these 2 months.

I have been making an attempt to develop my cash however it’s not figuring out. Shares and crypto simply saved going south. I’ve additionally been spending quite a bit on extra my well being. I began going for TCM acupuncture, in hopes to strengthen my physique and for miracles to occur. Signed a bundle for 4 digit sum, and hopefully I would see fruits from this therapy. I’ve additionally been shopping for dietary supplements, and tonics. 

Well being upkeep would not come low cost.

One thing most individuals would wanna kaypo about – standing at ~$679k, no enchancment in comparison with Jul…

It is pathetic that I would be a lot richer if I didn’t purchase shares, crypto nor use my CPF to put money into endowus. Anyway, will psych myself that these are for long-term….

Until then.
