Hi, many thanks for visiting SGBoleh - A blog which I started to in 2006 as a media for me to blast my unhappiness as well as joy in my first job. For those who do not know "SG" is the short form of Singapore and Boleh is an Indonesian word which mean OK. Hence SGBoleh together mean "Singapore OK!". Don't ask me why I name it that cause till today I have no idea why as well.
Who am I?
Why I start this blog?
I started this blog on Aug 07, 2006 under the influence of my
Passion to Blogging
In late 2009 after my
With my certification I started out to learn more about the financial industry and here I also started to convert my passion for personal financing into my Blog. And I started to pay more attention with my blog contents and my readership as what started as a personal blog ended up as a passion where I devote a small amount of my time to slowly increase my passive income so that I will be financially free one day.
I know I should have started my blog on the right track since 2006 instead of 2010 when there are already tons and tons of other similar websites and blogs around. But well I believe I am slightly different from them in that I offer a Singaporean point of view on the various financial matters and events. I am not some rich chap who sit around and money just come in but rather an average Singaporean who got a job, stuck in a rat race like most of others and trying to achieve financial freedom in a Singaporean practical way.
Furthermore I believe I started at the right time cos I can relate alot of my personal experience into my advises and blog posts. Having survived 2 retrenchments, a very bad economic downturn in 2008 and getting my flat in 2010 as well as welcoming my son to this world back to back talk about been experienced in life. Hence starting this blog at this time makes it easy for me to express my views on more matters as I am now more experienced and of cos more mature. But of the stress level which I experience also increases and thus once in a while I might blog some stuff which are abit crazy (siao kia).
