  1. SMOL: Singapore Man On Laziness?

    1. CW,

      On the contrary, I sharing what's its like to live a leisurely lifestyle ;)

      Time is on my side.

      Laziness is not doing anything about it when you know WHO you are and WHAT you like to do - now that's lack of ambition ;)

      P.S. You better go back and defend your latest post. You have shared what you have done (reality); now people is asking what you "should have" done (planning)!


  2. if u are doing the same thing everyday, you will not feel as enjoyable as you do it once a while

    ever experience during long vacation, your sleeping time time gets shorter and shorter ie u wakeup earlier than usual. it is because we have 'slept enough'

    1. Jimmy L,

      You must be single. That's why when their wives are not around, our married brethren will "curi ayam". Shhh....

      Well, I've been on a 3.5 years vacation now.

      The first year felt like a vacation; the rest of the 2.5 years no.

      Its a lifestyle change ;)

  3. Hi SMOL,

    If we set an alarm clock, does it make it not natural? If we didn't set an alarm clock, does it make it more natural? I'm not sure what's 'natural' anymore. I think it all boils down to whether there's a reason to wake up lol

    1. Waking up at own time and no pre determined time is a luxury that most employed people can't afford it. Read SMOL. LOL

    2. LP,

      Waking up naturally to your lover lying in arms. You gently peel away her scented strands to reveal her angelic face. Softly, you stroke her cheeks with the back of your fingers.

      Time is on our side.

      Now add an alarm clock ringing and tell me whether that's natural ;)

      We'll probably push our lover out of the way, jump out of bed and rush to the bathroom. With a quick bye and off we disappear...

      Time is not on our side.

      Our love lying in bed says bye with an expectant smile. Reaches over to her mobile on the night stand:

      "He's gone for work. You can come now."

  4. The worse thing is u wake up earlier than ur alarm...then wait for it to ring. Haiz.

    人生短短几十年, 睡得饱吃得好最重要。

  5. I think 自然死even more 幸福!

    1. I also think 自然死最幸福。无痛无折磨。Live Leisurely, Die Leisurely.

    2. Frugal Daddy,


    3. Seventh month coming!

      Bull Head. Horse Face are reading from Deep Dark. Still talking about 死???


    4. CW,

      I think personal finance bloggers have a big flaw - assume we never die.

      Fear of running out of cash during an illness, petrified with running out of money during our old age, etc.

      Isn't death one of the solutions?

      Once upon a time, when police still wear shorts, we retire at 55, collect our CPF, and then die at around 65.

      Less people talk about money not enough for retirement hor?


      Maybe long life is a punishment?

      I just know at dinner conversations, I hate to sit with people who are only interested to talk about how much we earn, how much we save...Reeks of bronze smell...

      Talk about AKB48 or Dungeon & Dragons, now that's culture!

  6. Hi SMOL,

    To hedge against longevity, we can consider live organ donation, like giving away one of our kidneys. Seriously!

    1. Endrene,

      You certainly know your medical stuff ;)

      Slowly but surely, more and more educated and spiritually aware Singaporeans will shift from a curative to palliative to hospice care mindset.

      As part of my cultivation, I am preparing myself mentally for the day when the doctor says I've a incurable illness. I hope I have the wisdom and clarity of mind to accept and let go.

      Living in the moment is my hedge against early departure. I don't plan if I have X, then I'll do Y anymore...

      There is no plan to live beyond winter ;)

  7. Yes, SMOL. We should make every day count. To me FI is to have the option of 'giving' more of myself away. 反正这个臭皮囊可以物尽其用就别留太久,不然零件抛锚了,要给别人也用不上。But in case I overdo it, like give away kidney, then liver then don't know what not, then later not well enough to work, I won't be left having to depend on my family. I'm just wondering, would my H&S premium skyrocket if I were to volunteer for live organ donation? Hmm...

    1. Endrene,

      I think we Sagittarius must have missing screws.

      Others are fretting how to secure their financial assets when they are gone; we are toying with "giving up" our human assets?

      I not so "garang" as you!

      I'm just glad I can do my part under the Human Organ Transplant Act (HOTA).

      Once I've crossed the river, the doctors can do with my "boat" in whatever ways that do the most good.

      I travel light :)

  8. Haha. My family and siblings also say I'm screw loose. Travelling light is good and I want to take it literally! LOL.
