    Default My dream retirement home...

    A small condo with a medium to big swimming pool near to the nature..
    can swim and jog ..
    can smell the fresh air..
    can sit down enjoy my coffee while overlook the sea...
    away from the busy working district

    what a good life

    It is too cold there during winter.

    I was having the idea of having a second home overseas with good ocean view, but find it costly, inconvenient and hard to maintain.

    After spending a whole lifetime in fast moving Singapore, not easy to get used to a very slow lifestyle for too long a period. You will appreciate it for 2-3mths maximum in a place like NZ before boredom sets in. Use the home for regular visits but not for long term stay.
    My dream retirement home is a villa in Bali or Phuket , but only for short and regular visit.

    Looking forward to the completion of my retirement home that has a marina and greenery view on high floors. May invest in a yacht to go fishing with my family. Unfortunate thing is that my official retirement is another 20 years later.

    Oh, IC... I think I call my agent up and check it out... Hahahaha

    I think this will sell out before qbay launch. Then subsale will start... So you can then imagine Qbay pricing liao... Hahahahah

    This is like the repeat of Clover by the park. Took so long for prices to go up. People very funny, when price too cheap, they wont buy.... But price high, they cheong like nobody business... I dont understand, I wont try to understand, I just use it to my advantage. Hahahaha

    I already am in semi-retire mode. But still earning full salary. Hahaha



    But bro, when I was younger, I worked like crazy leh... You think, all my knowledge come from me TCSS everyday??? No leh, I analyse like crazy leh... Thing I dont understand, I read and read until I understand leh....

    That's why I am a deep person.. Of course that is in my mind... But I appreciate people who contradict me with proof and I will accept it. Not those who just tell me, u believe or not - up to you. Then dont show me proof of their argument.

    Better stop here... Getting too much... TCSS time...

    My dream home is a huge >3000sqft penthouse overlooking the sydney harbour or brisbane river in Australia (within 5km from city and suburbs amenities). I will be driving a ferrari/porsche/lambo/bentley there.

    Or Taipei city penthouse overlooking the taipei 101 district.. here.. i can only drive a mercedes..hehe..

    When i reached 65-70yrs old, i return to singapore to wait for death..

    But of course..that is a dream..
