  1. Hi Rolf,

    Big Bear… Be careful of what we wished. Haha.

    Usually Big Bear brings other bad things too, such as lost of jobs, pay cut, pay freeze, etc. Imagine the portfolio drops by 50%, husband/wife lose job. Double whammy, triple whammy…

    Still life must goes on and bills to pay. How many people will dare to "whack" the life savings/warchest?


    1. Hi Farmer,

      Absolutely spot on. Exactly the same wording that I spoken to my colleague today. Bear time, jobs unstable, pay cuts, retrenchment, still dare to whack?

      Frankly I am not accumulating warchest now… I am accumulating more rainy funds! I seriously do not hope for the bear. Seeing people losing jobs around you is definitely not fun. I seen it before.

      I am not very noble. But given a choice, I prefer a good economy over to just profit from bear.

  2. Hi Rolf,

    I like how you take into account your own personal finances and realise your own thought processes before coming to a conclusion with investing. I think many people don't realise that investing is very personal.

    "What ?! You investing during market peak?"

    "I allocated a little only….."

    1. Hi BfGf,

      Welcome. Thanks for the comments. Your first visit here, I must give u Ang pow!

      I agree totally that investing is very personal. Keep searching for your own style. Don't wear black tees, jeans and new balance because Steve Jobs did that. Be patient, it takes awhile.

      Listen to your friends, or bloggers for exposures, facts and figures, and not for tips and plain follow.

      Understand "Rolf Suey" until u can re-arrange the letters to find "yourself"

      I still invest during peak. little also invest. Invest also not nec mean money into stocks… invest can means investment into myself.. haha.. see the slogan at my header. :p

      Your little may mean a lot to me! haha

    Did you bring your daughters along to Bali? Id like to go there too enjoying the beach and having a slow pacing time. Good that you have a routine yearly place to go along as a destination. I have yet to pick mine 😉

    1. Hi B,

      No kids. I felt v guilty after seeing another couple bring their kid. The next time I will bring them.

      There are so many things to do in Bali. I will split my days. Relax at beach, or jog at beach, sun tan, swim, food n body massages. Tour at north or south of Bali explore the wild and culture. Then shopping, good coffee, write blog. Every meal different food.. local, chinese, western, italian, Japan etc….more importantly.. cheap and friendly people.

      I look fwd to c your Holiday post soon.. u hor.. cannot only blog about stocks, finance, career.. u know.. life is more than that.. we are only in our 30s… not like #@&$#!!!

      haha 🙂

  4. I see somebody being a man of leisure at Bali 😉

    Investing for the future is important; having fun now is also!

    We never know… Just in case there's a product defect and we get recalled to our maker…

    Must hedge!


    1. Hi SMOL,

      I already take over your SG Man of Leisure title. You are now officially Snake Man of Leisure. 🙂

      I think the fallacy many people have is they see themselves too far into the future that they forget now.

      The fruits awaiting in the future is important, but what you have NOW is something u can never turn back in future.

      The same overseas tour destination, u go there at 20, 40 or 60 yrs old, all feel different!

  5. Hi Rolf,

    Thought provoking article with gorgeous pictures, why hide your face though? lol

    1. Hi Richard,

      Until the day, I truely find myself, I will reveal.. haha. that is when Rolf Suey blog will change to "Yourself" blog.

      Just kidding.. actually the reason is I do not want to attract too many young Mei Mei readers… haha.. my wife and daughters are reading u know… keke

  6. Hi Rolf,

    Very good thinking process…..Myself had not been buying any new or additional shares in Jan & Feb. I'm still sitting on my bonus too.

    Nice pictures of Bali. This makes me wanna to go there too. I was there like 20 years ago….


    1. Hi David,

      It's time to be like me then to spend your bonus on holiday rather than losing into the stock market.. haha

      Wow 20 years is a long time. It's neither expensive nor far to go Bali. Hence I had been going there past 3 years.

      Time to take a break David.. not nec in Bali.. maybe Sentosa also can.. 🙂
