DW Operation Tung Lok Treat @ Changi City Point

I am a die-hard supporter of Tung Lok restaurant. A few months back, I went to Tung Lok Signatures at Clarke Quay. Yesterday, after purchasing my Toshiba ultrabook, I went over to Changi City Point and treated my family to a satisfying afternoon dim sum meal.

Enjoy the photos! ^^

The napkin.

Crispy Char Siew Bun
(I took a bite first. Heee!)

Fried carrot cake with XO chilli sauce
I like this alot and it goes well with the sliced fish porridge beside it

Egg tarts.
Disappointing. The crust was not flaky enough for me. :(
No fragrant egg taste too

Deep fried prawn dumpling

Salted egg custard bun a.k.a "liu sha bao"

Finally, my all-time favourite - Xiao Long Bao!
I ordered 2 sets. Shiok!

My $22k War Chest! 
I am ready to pounce on any opportunities. ^^

This was my first cheque from Nuffnang last year. Check it out.

Let Your Portfolio Ride on The Grey Tsunami

Before I proceed on to my new post, I would like to express my gratitude towards the supportive comments on my previous post. I really appreciate it. Thanks guys! (and gals?) That particular post might portray me as raging furious. But I was actually rather calm when I was typing. By the way, I realised I forgot to mention something important. I am NOT saying that dividend investing is the 100%, absolutely correct, perfect, ideal, safe, risk-free and flawless way of investing. It is suitable for me but it may not be suitable for you. So, it is totally fine if you do not follow my dividend investing style. You can still visit my blog for casual reading. Hehe :P

Alright then, let's get back to business. I am going to take my portfolio in a slightly different direction in the next few months. 

A Grey Tsunami Is Coming:
The populations in Asia are aging rapidly. A massive social demographic change will be taking place over the next few decades. According to a research done by United Nations in 2001, the number of Asians age 65 and above will increase exponentially from 207 million in 2000 to 857 million in 2050. 

The rise of the middle-class families in developing countries like China and Indonesia will fuel the medical travel sector too. Increasingly affluent patients will demand better healthcare services because they can now afford it. For example, many rich Indonesian patients do not mind forking out more money to seek better medical treatment at Mount Elizabeth Hospital in Singapore. 


Riding on the Tsunami - Buy Quality Healthcare Stocks in Asia:
IHH Healthcare Berhad comprises premium-brand healthcare assets, collectively representing a unique multi-market investment position in the healthcare sector. For more information, please visit their website at http://ihh-healthcare.com/our-businesses/brands-and-portfolio


Raffles Medical Group (RMG) is a leading medical group and the largest private group practice in Singapore. As a fully integrated healthcare organisation, the Group owns and operates a network of family medicine clinics, a tertiary care private hospital, insurance services and a consumer healthcare division. Patients of the Group enjoy a continuum of care, from having their most basic healthcare needs met through the Group’s islandwide network of Raffles Medical clinics, to specialist and tertiary care at Raffles Hospital. For more information, please their website at http://www.rafflesmedicalgroup.com/our-services/our-services.aspx

Implications for my portfolio:
When the Asian grey tsunami hits in the next few decades, I want to be ready to take advantage and profit from it. In fact, I am going to start the foundation now. So far, I have been investing in dividend stocks over the past 3 years. It is time to tweak my strategy and go for healthcare stocks. Anyway, the prices of quality blue-chip dividend stocks have been skyrocketing and my spare funds are idling (rotting) in the bank account, earning next to nothing in interests. 

My Singapore Dividend Portfolio consists of just one "medical-related" stock, First REIT. It makes up around 6% of my portfolio. However, it is a REIT and not a pure healthcare stock. Therefore, I will be looking to invest heavily in IHH Healthcare Berhad and Raffles Medical Group in the coming months. If Parkway Life REIT dips after XD, I will also be keen to add some. I want my portfolio to comprise of 20% healthcare stocks in the long run. 

My Global Dividend Growth Portfolio also consists of just one healthcare stock, Johnson & Johnson. It makes up around 20% of my portfolio. I am comfortable with that. 

So, any healthcare stocks in your portfolio? What do you think of my new direction? Comment below. ^^

Financial Freedom at 30?



Recently, I have lost some motivation in building my Singapore portfolio. After my portfolio value crossed the 100k mark, I kinda lifted my foot off the gas pedal. I am in my comfort zone. I thought I had achieved alot for someone of my age. As a result, my portfolio size has remained rather stagnant in 2012.

For the past few days while I was on leave, I did some deep thinking. Next year, I will be turning 30. I am determined to collect S$1k per month in dividends by then because I want to celebrate my 30th birthday by achieving financial freedom.  I want to enjoy my thirties!

Right now, my monthly passive income is around S$700 on average. There is still a shortfall of S$300 per month, or $3,600 per year. I really need to save more and invest prudently. S$700 cannot cover my monthly expenses.

Below is a rough breakdown of my monthly expenses:
- Phone bill: S$30
- Internet bill: S$30
- Insurance: $200
- Food: S$150
- Transport: S$100
- Parents' allowance: S$500
Total: S$1000 (just for survival >_<" )


However, the recent high prices of stocks are stopping me back from adding to my portfolio. Furthermore, if I keep on waiting, my money will be losing its value in the bank account. Sigh.......I think it will be difficult to reach my target of 130k in portfolio size this year.
I watch this video to keep myself motivated. ^^

2012 Dividend Investing Goal - Earn More, Work Less





Time really flies. In a blink of an eye, it is the start of a brand new year. It seems like yesterday when I first started on my dividend investing journey. Comparing my portfolio between December 2010 and now, I realised that my portfolio has grown from strength to strength. The various negative global events in 2011 actually made my dividend investing journey "easier". I finally crossed the 100k mark! There were plenty of opportunities to accumulate during corrections, and I also managed to weed out the weaker stocks in my portfolio. Experts are predicting another volatile year with slow growth and fear, which is perfect for my style of investing. At the present moment, my dividends are just barely sufficient to cover my food expense and bills. Therefore, I do not consider myself financially free yet.




Let's take a final look at how my Singapore dividend portfolio performed in 2011. 


  • My portfolio size almost doubled from S$62, 577 to S$117, 489. 
  • I collected a total of S$7, 410 in 2011. This translates into an average of S$617.50 per month
  • My portfolio annual yield is about 6.3%, which is higher than the inflation rate and the low bank interest rates.




Some of you who have been religiously following my blog  may be asking, "I thought your December update states that the monthly dividend is around S$425?" There is a difference because I am changing the way I am presenting my dividend data starting from Jan 2012. I will not include dividends collected from previous years. I will only show dividends I received for a single year. My readers told me that this is a more accurate of way of presenting my data and other dividend bloggers are using this format.


Summing up, for 2012, I aim to achieve S$700 per month in dividends while maintaining the annual yield of my portfolio above 6% at least. Wish me luck! ^^




Peace Out,
Dividend Warrior
