About me

What is this site for, exactly?

I’ve created the site for three purposes:

• “Advice”: to share tips, tricks and general pointers on a number of topics that I often find myself answering questions on, such as “why are you…”, “how do you…” and “what do you think of…”.

• “Personal Finance”: to share general thoughts on investing and to highlight problem scenarios for which I can offer solutions in my role as a certified Financial Adviser in Singapore.
