Why So Many Retirees Move to Florida

  Last week, my Dad was telling me about his last sister who is now happily retiring at Florida with her husband and two grown children. They originally resided in New York for many years. Then they move to Florida due to the weather is the best suited for old age people and part of the retirement plan. Being a retiree myself, I could relate to the needs of one looking for a retirement place. Retirement is a time to relax and enjoy all that life has to offer without worrying about trudging through a 9 to 5. When you retire you want to find a location that will make the most of your retirement fund while stretching its dollars, has access to fantastic healthcare, and provides a community of like-minded people and amenities that lend themselves to a fulfilling way of living. What better place to settle than the Sunshine State? Whether you're looking at Fort Lauderdale house for sale or a condo in Tampa, Florida makes for a wonderful retirement setting. You won't be left wanting f

Tried Out Live Stream Hosting and I made a Negative on my first day

  To be honest, being a retiree means I am struggling to keep myself occupied and finding ways to spice up my daily life by trying out new things. Well, this is what I am busy with these days, other than struggling to keep my health better. My health isn't great right now. The ongoing back pain really killing me. My struggle to lose weight is like a never-ending stint. The result isn't good at all. Despite adopting a healthy lifestyle routine from food to exercise, my weight isn't moving a gram from where I am right now. I keep telling myself to stay positive. I need to find ways or find out anything wrong with my internal health. I did the check-up, other than bad cholesterol and gastric, I don't have anything else. Ya! that Type 2 Diabetes is over for me. I am doing good on that part. My back pain is mainly caused by the heavy me. So losing weight is my top priority. Mental health is also important for this.

How To Determine Car Affordability Based On Salary

  Reality checked! To be honest, Malaysia's public transportation is beyond convenient for some of us. This causes us to get another way of transportation such as Car, Motorcycle or Bicycle. The motorcycle seems not so practical for some of us, especially women because it seems dangerous and our weather climate is unpredictable. As for bicycles, the specific lane is not enough. Either inconvenient at all or poor maintenance and most of the time the cyclist is prone to danger due to ruthless motorcyclists. For the majority of us, we are left with no choice but to get a car, Although, Malaysia's traffic jam is famous for being horrendous.  Some of us end up spending too much on expenses just to own a car. Many end up trying to fulfil their dreams to get a car beyond their affordability. This ends up becoming a burden. Many forget, that buying a car is just about an instalment payment. There are many other expenses to add in such as - maintenance, repairs, insurance and road tax.

Struggling To Stay Healthy In the 40s : Reversing Diabetes Type 2

I was diagnosed with Diabetes Type 2 in early May 2022 which is right after Hari Raya Aidilfitri. I was devastated by the result. All this while, I was very careful with the sugar intake. I don't really drink a sugary drink. I prefer black with no sugar for my coffee. I chose plain water over a sugary drink. My homecooked food with no sugar added. Why? Why? The Doctor's explanation was easy, your parent may have diabetes. This is inheritance. I was like...Duh!!!! I prefer monetary inheritance rather than bad genes.  The doctor said not time to be too upset over this. I give you 3 weeks to reverse this since you are confident, that you are leading a healthy lifestyle. No medication will be prescribed at this moment. Please come back for the test again in 3 weeks' time.  So...this is like, I was given a second chance? God Bless! I went back home with a sworn to do a very strict diet. At the same time, I read there is an Ayurveda method to drink curry leaves powder with warm w

Finally Found A Comfortable Shoes

EPF Withdrawal : The Fourth Withdrawal Is Like Killing People Golden Years

  Recently, most Malaysians have been grateful to the government's decision to allow a fourth withdrawal from the Employees Provident Fund (EPF). Grateful? Frankly, speaking nothing great about that decision at all. This is the fourth withdrawal for goodness sake. Repeat again the fourth withdrawal of our retirement savings. How could we feel thankful to allow a withdrawal from our own money? Is it a wise move to withdraw your EPF for the fourth time? We should only feel grateful if the government funds that aid. They are using the reason the country transitions to the endemic phase. Most people are using the reason for the recent flood and settling the debt with the EPF withdrawals.  My question here is if the government is sincerely thinking to help the people, why make them pay using their own future money. Where are all the money gone? Massive leakages and criminal breaches of trust by a few prominent leaders who have caused the Malaysian to be in this situation to dip into the

Changing The Title From Retiree To Investor

  The title kind of misleading tho!😅 I used that title because can't think of anything else. I am now in my second year living as a full-time retiree. Never to my imagination to retire before 50 years old. I feel embarrassed with my title when I decided to quit my job and live my life to the fullest at the age of 46 years old. But now, I have accepted my official title with an open heart. It's a good thing anyway. Nothing wrong with not working as long as one can afford to do so, right! Far from rich but adopting a simple living is what I am doing now.  My daily routine is kind of simple. I started my morning with an exercise routine for better health. Then enjoy a cup of morning coffee while spacing out on my sofa while listening to calming music from YoutTube Music. Water my mini garden. Sort of! 😑 I don't have a 'green hand' to make my plant grow well. Ahh... But I tried my best to diligently give them water tho! I only do my house chores on weekly basis but ma

How I Spent My Prize Money From Cheesy Squid Game Challenge

Not even Grand prizes or even top three winners, just a consolation prize, people and I was over the moon to the star and over the universe. Aaaaaaa.... that's how to describe my feeling that time during the Chinese New Year mood festival. If I win the Grand prize or top three sure fainted edi duh!!!! muahahahaha😅 Me? Won something? I can't believe it even until now. So, I end up buying something with the prize money as my memory. I bought something I love the most. COFFEE. I bought a coffee machine people! bY the way, I spent some of the cash to treat my parent and sisters too. Oh yeah! O yeah! finally bought the coffee machine to enjoy a good espresso in the morning. Seriously, I am loving my Samu Giken Coffee Machine. I love the espresso machine but milk frosting is kind of not working and I care less about this. I do

Pros and Cons of Buying A House

  When I was young, I rather save cash than purchase a property on my own. I don't want to commit to a huge monthly commitment. To be honest, I felt insecure able to keep my job for the long term.  What if I lost my job? I really don't want to put myself in a debts situation. Another factor to take into consideration is the surrounding environment may change in a long term. So, I don't buy property until my later stage. I make sure to have enough cash to settle off my house loan before committing the loan. Well, this is my way. For those young people out there who are planning to buy a house, take the factors below before making your long term commitment decision.
