I shared a photo of one my favorite ships in World of Warships in a video yesterday. Bismark is a ship I enjoy a lot and I have had many hours of fun playing it.  There are some ships I have which are really beautiful to look at. Unfortunately, that is the only thing I find them good for. They are not fun to play, for various reasons. :( It is just like investing in ..read more

More funds came in as yield hits 3.78% p.a.

The latest 6 months T-bill auction saw a cut-off yield of 3.78% p.a. Pretty decent although it dipped slightly from 3.8% p.a. we saw in the auction before this. Better than the 3.4% p.a. offer from CIMB for a 6 months fixed deposit. So, good enough for me. Around 96% of non-competitive applications, total S$2.5 billion, were allotted in the latest auction ..read more

SRS was a topic I used to blog about pretty often.I have not been blogging about it as much since I have not been making contributions in recent years.Reason is because I no longer pay income tax.See:Income Tax payable?If we are still paying income tax, contributing to our SRS account makes sense to enjoy some tax relief.Of course, we want to put our SRS money to work or we would get a very ..read more
